Rated 3 out of 5 Marmite?
I've found with this that most people either love or hate, but I sit in the middle. It's a tricky product at best and can be difficult to know how to use and where to use, which leads to confusion and maybe unjust negative opinion. It's very thick and super pigmented, which I find wonderful for pin-point concealing. Not the most bendable texture in the world given the thick consistency but taking the extra effort can pay off. Haven't used it when mixed with a foundation yet but that seems to be a medium which people get good results from. Wouldn't recommend this to super dry skinned people as it does have a tendency to cling to the mildest of dry areas, so maybe one for the more oily skinned amongst us.

Rated 5 out of 5 by AfroBelle Best concealer on the planet
I have dark circles under my eyes. I have tried every cult concealer including MAC's studio fix, MAC's pro long wear, Nars radiant creamy concealer, bobbi brown etc. Although this one is significantly more expensive than any of those options, it is definitely worth it. This is one of the very few products where the "a little goes a long way" adage actually works, I use a tiny amount (like the size of a pinhead) under each eye and it gives great natural coverage, and blends out really well. I also don't need to use a colour corrector with the Kevin Acion, whereas I need to with other premium concealers.
For purposes of shade matching, I'm NC50 in Mac and Amande in Nars and I got SX13 and it matched perfectly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Nastka Great product with a learning-curve to it.
This is a brilliant product, however, if you are averse to experimentation and trying different methods of application, this might not be for you. If you want something that works 'out-of-the-box' and has good coverage, I suggest going with a cream foundation instead (Graftobian and Mehron do fabulous ones).
Personally, I found it is best being used in another medium. Depending on what you use, it might be a winner or frustrate you to no end. Youtube and blogs are a good source for tips on how to use this.
It is rather thick and very pigmented, with a very faint fragrance to it that doesn't linger. It spreads rather easily using a brush or fingers.
I like to mix it into a sheerer foundation or BB cream to amp up the coverage or adjust the colour to suit me better. I'm lighter than NARS Siberia / MAC NC10 and SX1 seems to be a good, neutral match.
It is brilliant for concealing blemishes, however, it seems to be too dry to be used on the under eye area on its own or even over foundation.
Overall, I'm sure I'll purchase this again, but this little pot will last me for years!
