Zit Zapping Concealer is rated 3.6203 out of 5 by 79.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not Amazing This is an okay product but it is very cakey and does not look very good. It is diffenetly not something I would use day to day.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst Elf Product I've Tried I really love elf, but this was a HUGE letdown. I got it in the green color because I have a lot of redness to cover up. Honestly, I can't find a single redeeming quality about this product. It's very very thick and impossible to blend so rather than getting rid of redness, it turns everything it touches completely green. Even when thoroughly rubbed into the skin, all you can see is the green, even on the reddest of skin. It's really sticky as well and has an odd odor that was very off-putting. I found it completely unusable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have been using this concealer for the past week or so and I have been loving it so far. It offers great coverage and stays on all day. It is thick, so it is a little hard to blend. I usually use this concealer with my BB cream on top and the combination of both have been keeping my pimples/acne under control. The scent is a bit strong, smells like tea tree oil, but it doesn't bother me. Also, after reading other reviews, I thought the color "light" was going to be too light on me but it's actually a little darker than my skin tone. Once it's blended and with the bb cream it isn't noticeable, though. This was a great buy, my face looks so much better since it practically conceals all my redness and pimples.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Product, Poor Packaging This concealer covers really well and works fine for me under my foundatoin. However, once you twist it enough to get the concealer to come out of the tip, you're already halfway up the tube. You don't really get a lot. For the price, it's not bad, especially since it covers well AND fight breakouts at the same time!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really Helps This product is really great. Everyone has said it has a "strong chemical smell" but, my friends, that is tea tree oil, which is a natural healing remedy. It works great for my acne and covers very well!! Unfortunately, I got only 1 at a store 4 hours away from my home and I ran out a few days ago, and I have been searching for it high and low and so far, the closest I've gotten to it is the neutrogena zit zapping concealer which is $10. All I wish is that it were more widely available.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from not what it should be I bought this product a few months back just as a backup concealer as I had just ran out of my usual favorite and I was already placing an order. First off, the packaging is completely un-ideal for the product, and when you try to twist up product, you either get nothing or loads of it. Secondly, the formula feels very unnatural on the skin, and rather than blending in, it sits as a thick layer. You can feel it on your face when you're wearing it and its definitely impossible to wear on its own without foundation (makes blending even worse). The color as well (I believe I purchased the shade Medium) is very unnatural, and looks vaguely taupe or greyish, which is very unflattering on the face, especially under the eyes where you should highlight. I will say that the coverage is pretty high, but since I can't get a normal shade to match my skin, I won't be using it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fights Acne Well I think that this product works well paired with another concealer, such as ELF Tone Correcting Concealer. Because the texture is really thick, I usually put a thin layer of this on and then mix it with something more liquid. The result works fine. For the most part, I think that this concealer does it's job, but the consistency is a little funky.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Alright Product it works well as a concealer but you have to twist a lot then a glob shoots out the top. I haven't noticed a difference in my acne and the product has a strong chemical smell

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wondering what the green shade is for? A "makeup artist" once told my friend she had a green undertone to her skin and should shop for a foundation according to that. She was freaked out, as anyone would be to hear their skin is greenish. However, that's not what this is made for! Green is the complementary color to red. They make green concealers to combat redness in the skin, for skin with acne or out-of-control red patches. It doesn't make your skin look green - it just absolves the red tones, highlighting and returning your skin to neutral. It's an awesome solution for people like me, because I always tell people I'm not white - I'm pink.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Weird... I have pretty fair skin, but the Fair didn't match my skin tone and it's super hard to blend. It also takes a super long time to come out of the tube so you keep twisting and then all the sudden a huge glob comes out. It's really dry looking on the skin, but I guess it fights acne alright. I mean, I haven't noticed any major differences, but it's okay at getting rid of pimples.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great overnight, not during the day I have this product in FAIR. Too too light for my skin ton, although works fantastically as an overnight acne treatment. Definitely not a concealer or day wear product. Does not blend easier.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works Well I got this product in medium and it matches very well to my olive complexion. I found it very easy to apply and it covers well under my foundation. The only minor flaw is that it tends to dry out the zits its covers causing them to flake. But overall, the product is worth the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for me! This actually works. It does dry out the skin where applied, but don't all major acne products? For me, that just means it's working. I had a big pimple and within 12 hours it flaked off (poof, gone!) The problems I had with this was: 1. I have pretty fair skin and the medium matched my skin tone (strange, right?) So people with darker skin probably wouldn't be able to use it, maybe the corrective green one. 2.) The product would dry in the packaging and it's hard to get more product out because the dried product blocks the way. But even with these problems, I still love this product and use it everyday. Love it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from OK, but won't buy again This product had nice packaging,and looked like my skin tone from the package. When I opened it and twisted the bottom to bring the makeup to the top of the applicator, it started to come out in an unnatural way. After that, I applied it to my face and I noticed it wasn't liquidy enough. It was also too light for my skin tone even though I am usually always a fair skin tone.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product, horrible packaging I like the product but the painted cap flakes horribly. I end up with little white flakes all over my face and other make-up products when it's in my makeup bag. So frustrating. I'm not sure why the cap even needs paint because it's already white plastic underneath anyway!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from love. I got the corrective green and it works! I used the zit zapper and this on a blemish and, I kid you not, the blemish is GONE. It literally took maybe 6 hours for it to disappear.. This definitely helped with redness. I'm not sure whether to credit this, the zit zapper, or a combination of the two with getting rid of the blemish. Either way, I'm hooked.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not the greatest made The very first tube I bought was broken and would not dispense (even after turning the bottom of it for a while). After e.l.f. sent me a replacement (which was very nice of them to do), I was able to start using it. Over the past 3 months, I notice that this does cause a lot of skin peeling whereever you apply it. Your skin peels even if there is plenty of foundation covering the concealer or if you used a good moisturizer before applying the concealer. It also doesn't seem to do much for whatever you are covering. I will probably stick to the e.l.f. Cover Everything Concealer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Nice My skin hasn't matured yet, so I usually use this on my pimples. It does cover well and things of that nature, but when I put it on my face, it turned whatever spot I put it on completely white. It's not that easy to blend, either. I would recommend using this before putting on foundation because this would completely mess up the foundation already on the skin.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from a little hard to get used to This stuff comes out very thick, especially at first. It also goes on very thick, and I had to get used to working with it. It does cover well, but I have very light skin and got the "fair" color, and now wish I would have got the next darker color. It's so light that I have to put it under my foundation, when usually I do concealer on top. I'm not sure about it having any "zit zapping" qualities either. It didn't seem to do much in that area.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Dries inside packaging I thought it was a great product at first, but then it dried up inside within days of use. There is still a lot of product inside, and after getting the dry stuff out the product comes out nicely. You just have to keep unclogging it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty Good The concealer is very pigmented so a little goes a long way. I used this on my big zit, and it went down from 1-2 weeks. Although it does settle into fine wrinkles you can only notice it really up close.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from best for acne, color was perfect for me! I love it. Why so many other people say the color is off I have no idea... I have light/medium skin and i bought medium and it matches perfect. My sister bought the green and loves it as well. Since it had medication in it, it obviously works better applied directly to the skin. I put foundation over it or sometimes just a little powder, it matches my skin fine. It also pretty easy to blend in. I dont mind the smell, if it has acne medicine in it it's supposed to smell like medicine :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Corrective Green I was curious about this concealer and the shade corrective green, however I regret choosing to buy it in green. I think the concealer itself isn't bad, not quite sure if the zip zapping part of the concealer is really working, however, the color is just too pigmented that it's had to blend out. The unnatural color makes it very obvious that there's concealer on your face. Definitely something you wear UNDER foundation. The good thing about this concealer is that a little goes a long way. Just the tiniest dot is all that is needed. If I ever try to repurchase this item, it would be in either light or medium.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best! I have tried many concealers and this is my favorite. It goes on thick and needs to be blended out because it is very light when you first apply it. It is well-worth the effort though. I recommend using the Studio angled contour brush with a stippling technique to blend it. I have fair, light and medium and they are all pretty close in color. It covers exceptionally well and hides redness without having to use contrasting colors. In addition to its intended use, I use this on my cheeks and the bridge of my nose to hide flushing caused by rosacea. It lasts a long time and is water resistant; it held up even while swimming! As for using this on blemishes, it is amazing. It doesn't only cover well, but it noticeably reduces inflammation over time and blemishes heal faster than they would using other products. For particularly bad zits, I dab it on thick before bed and don't bother blending it out and by morning it is always smaller and less discolored. If you don't want to read about gross zit details, you should stop here. As a compulsive picker of zits, I occasionally break skin, leaving the area raw or scabby. Most concealers either will not sick to broken skin or irritate the area and cause it to exude, but this concealer sticks and soothes the skin, rather than irritating it further. While it can look a little cakey on scabs, it is far better than other concealers I have tried.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Color is much darker than shown in pictu The color was very much darker than shown. I ordered light and it was actually dark, like for ethnic skin. Very disappointed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Dries out quickly and really bad color This concealer dried out the second it came out of the felt tip. When I tried applying it to my skin, it was an unnatural color and didn't blend well at all. It looked gray. I was really disappointed because the Neutrogena version of this costs like $11 so I had hoped to find a better deal. Not reccomended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from In love I'm surprised by all the negative comments, I purchased this from the store today along with the Maximum coverage concealer, and I absolutely give this a 9/10, much better than the Max coverage studio line one ! It smells so good, covers so well, a little goes a long way. The only downside to it is that althought I would consider myself a medium, the Light shade fits me better. I also wish there was more product in there. Will definately buy more !
