”This is the only concealer/cover up I’ll ever use for actual blemish cover ups. I bought this in 2014 and it’s now 2016 and I’m still using the same pot, I’m not sure when it expires but it’s still as good as ever and I use this product every single day.

This concealer will cover up ANYTHING. I tested it out and it even covers moles if you apply it properly and well enough, I don’t doubt that it could probably cover up tattoos too. I have oily skin and my face makeup routine is primer, bb cream, Shiseido spotscover/Nars concealer, blush/contour, setting powder. I honestly don’t wear foundation anymore or even need to because this product blends and covers up so well. I use it as my concealer for dark spots/acne/blemishes and I use my Nars concealer in a lighter shade to brighten and contour areas like under my eyes, nose bridge, and forehead.

I used to apply it with a brush, then I switched to just using my fingers, and now I use a beauty blender. Application with the beauty blender is definitely the best out of the 3. It’s super easy to blend and I also have sensitive, acne-prone skin and find that this does NOT make me break out or give me a rash…”

Great coverage, could be better at everything else

I'd recommend this concealer for pinpoint concealing small blemishes and dark spots. The coverage is superb. However, I don't like how it sets too quickly and how thick and cakey it looks when you try to layer it. Go with a light hand and a fine-tipped brush and apply quickly. The pot at least has a decent amount of product and will last you awhile.

This spot cover foundation works really well. I use it on specific problem areas on my face like the under eye area and to even out discoloration. I'm using it like a concealer. It has a soft cream type consistency but is easy to blend. The coverage is buildable, medium to full. It also lasts a full day on my face without need for touch ups which I like. It doesn't really move much once you set it. And I did not have any break outs after having it on my skin for a full day. The cons for me is that it can feel heavy as you build it up and it settles on creases a bit so I try to put less product on creases. It came in a small round container. A little product goes a long way so I still have a lot even after using it for 2 months. This is my go to make up when I need some super concealing!

I bought this back in Japan in December 2018. The price was around 600 pesos so I have to say, this is highly overpriced! Almost twice the amount. However, this is a good concealer/foundation! Greatest coverage yet. As someone with acne prone and oily skin, I like it! Though when I start to blot my face of the oils, it leaves my skin patchy and the concealer, unnatural looking. I still like it tho! Very long lasting! (It’s quite thick so be mindful if you acne) (I’m desp to hide them so I sometimes don’t mind) Will repurchase though! Just not here hehe

Surprisingly good, completely covers marks

Shiseido’s a trusted brand for makeup. Its usually light, buildable and more importantly does not cause breakouts. While this product is not offered in Shiseido’s boutiques, I took a gamble and it paid off. It covered my breakouts and it does not aggravate them. I highly recommend this product. Its much better than Shiseido’s stick concealer and liquid concealer in terms of coverage. Also it looks natural!

A little goes a long way

One of two concealers I've settled with! And I don't think I'll be making the switch anytime soon. This product has never broken me out or caused acne to get worse. I only have to use a little of the product to cover up pimples and eye bags, and it blends easily with both brushes and sponges. I blend the S100 and S101 when I use it to cover up eye bags for a more natural look (the S100 on its own looks too unnaturally light for this area of my face), but use the S100 for the rest of my face and neck.

Worth it!

I got mine in Japan, I purchased the shade s101 and it was too orange/dark for my skin color. I'm not the fairest, but I'm between fair and medium and it didn't work for me. This is perfect for morena girls. I bought the shade s100 and it was perfect! It seemed too light at first, but you just have to blend it well. I have a lot of dark acne marks, but it manages to cover them. I don't use it all over my face, I use it as a concealer. I just use my fingers since it's creamy. It looks so natural as long as you don't over do it. A little really goes a long way. Using it alone works, but you can set it for better hold. However, its a bit overpriced since I think I got mine for 800 yen (about 300-400 pesos). I get my supply from relatives who stay in Japan, but if I didn't have anyone, I'd be willing to pay for it for 1,150 pesos!
