Coastal Scents Camo Quad Light & Color Corrector

I purchased these concealers from Coastal Scents about a month ago. At that time they were having a sale, I think 20% off. The regular price is $7.95 each, which isn't bad in my opinion. I was thorn between the light and the medium so I decided to go with the light. I must say that the pictures of the concealer quads on CS's website is not true to color. They appear lighter on the website. My pictures are pretty close to the real colors.

On the Light Camo Quad, you have 4 different flesh-toned colors to choose from to match the area you want to conceal. The white is suggested for highlighting and brightening your eyes. I particularly like to use the darker shade, which kinda looks like a salmon color to cover my under eye circles. FYI, these apply lighter than they look in the pan. See the swatches below.

The Color Corrector Quad may seem more complicated to understand if you are not familiar with how they are supposed to work and the theory behind color counteracting. Basically, each color there has a specific purpose. When used accordingly, they will even out your skin tone.
- Green helps counteract with redness such as pimples and rosacea.
- Yellow helps counteract with blueish and purple discoloration such as bruises and under eye circles.
- Lavender helps counteract with yellow discoloration such as uneven skin tone.
- Blue helps counteract with orange discoloration such as tanning.

  • It's approximately 3 inches in diameter but it's pretty thin
  • 4 different colors in each quad for different purpose and usage
  • Easy to open and close
  • Made of plastic. Pretty cheap-looking but feels sturdy.
  • Very good amount of product.
  • It's not as emollient as my other concealers. The consistency leans on the drier side
  • It needs a little warmth so you will need to use your fingers to apply. Make sure your fingers are clean before dipping in.
  • Even though it feels like a drier paste, I do not experience cakiness because it applies pretty thin and evenly once you blend it on your skin
  • It's very pigmented and offer full coverage


Overall, I do like this concealer. I have pretty normal/combination skin so I did not experience any problem when using the product. It last all day and works best "under" liquid foundation. It may not work as well for you if you have problematic skin such as dry patches or severe acne. I believe it works best on a smooth surface and give pretty good coverage. You may not need to make use of all the shades and probably will use one or two more than the others but at least you have options if you needed them. I'm still unsure of how long they will last before they dry out. I don't know if I'll repurchase since I like to try out new products but it's definitely worth a try if you are looking for a concealer. I'd give it a 8/10.
