I use the palette & I am a big fan. The benefit of it is that it is easy to transport (I keep it in my purse) & apply on the go, it doesn't bleed, & it is good for spot coverage. It lasts fairly well - about as well as any concealer I've tried. I have fair, mostly clear skin, but it can be dry which makes concealer look obvious & fake. So I prefer the palette because when I have a spot I want to cover I can just use a small , firm-bristled pointed brush to apply concealer to JUST the spot. Then I lightly (lightly!) tap my finger on it to blend. I think that the full cover concealer is best if you have more serious or large discolorations like burns or scarring - so, long story short, if you are covering up a couple of little pimples, go with the palette, if you are covering something that takes up more skin, use the concealer.

I like this better because out of the palette, I only use 2 colors at the most so this is really a better value for me and I prefer liquid to cream concealers because they are more blendable.

I've used both. The palette, I think, is a better value since you get more colors, which was perfect for me in the summer as my skin is never the same color twice. But this is better at covering under-eye issues. I have both dark circles, and bags (I'm 22) that I got because I lost in the family's genetic lottery. Other relatives have had theirs removed, and I use this. This makes the skin under my eyes look the same shade as the rest of my face AND it decreases the appearance of any under-eye puffiness to boot! It also doesn't flake or wear off. It's the only concealer I've ever used that stay on ALL DAY without fading or rubbing off. It's expensive as all heck, I know, but totally worth it. You could always ask a Sephora associate for a sample so you could try it out--that's what I did. I'm pale but with lots of yellow undertones (think traditional Asian skintone) and #6 is my perfect shade.

I use the concealer and it is great! You need very little and it does a great job in my opinion. I do have slight dark circles and it lightens that up but one thing I have found works good for dark circles is Benefit Eyecon it kind of bleaches the circles. But just in regards to this concealer it is really the best I have tried. It might be a little expensive but you need very very little. Also with they eyecon you need very little of that as well the container is small the price is expensive but it lasts forever! I am a #4 and right now since i have started tanning I am light. I have dark brown hair but eventhough you are blonde I think the #4 or the one lighter would work. For me it was a toss up between the #4 and #6.
