What I am raving about is this little gem called Physicians Formula Conceal RX Physicians Strength Concealer....Phew, long name I know! We will called it CRX for my fingers sake.
Let's look at the company claims. This is what the description says on www.drugstore.com
The prescription is in for Any and All imperfections

Dramatic Results with Blemishes, Birthmarks & Moles, Hyperpigmentation
Those are a lot of big claims huh? I picked mine up in Fair Light. Now one of the only downfalls of this product is that the color selection is very very limited. They only have three shades available and one of them is a color corrector. The other two shades are both for light skin so if you have dark skin or almost even tan skin you will be out of luck which makes me very sad!
Maximum Coverage- Check. It is so opaque and covered everything even the huge pimple under my nose!
Maximum Comfort- Check. Like I said it did not feel heavy or uncomfortable. It didn't even feel like I had concealer on.
Ultra Long Wear- I wore it for around 8 hours and it stayed on flawlessly. Around the 10 Hr. mark I noticed it had started to break down a little and settle under my eyes. I would say that you can wear it for about 8 hours solid without any noticeable change which I think is decent.
Natural Smooth Finish- I also agree with this. It is so creamy and applies with ease. It didn't look streaky. I applied it with a concealer brush and blend it out with my beauty blender. It looked flawless and did not oxidize. It also tried matte without being too dry and stayed matte all day. I set it with a translucent powder along with the rest of my face but even without that it dried matte.
Overall I LOVE THIS product. Now I don't have any issues such as Rosacea or hyperpigmentation so I don't know how it does with those but I would imagine it would cover those well too. The coverage is just amazing. Have any of you tried this? What do you think if you have?
I found mine at Riteaid but I know you can also find Physicians Formula at Walmart and CVS. You can also order it on www.drugstore.com. The price point is anywhere from $7-$11!
