I had this applied on me yesterday by a MUA at Sephora, as I am still looking for an "even better" concealer. She applied the shade "Pearl" and I wore it all day to test it out. I was thrilled with the results - really good coverage of my very blue under-eye circles without any settling into under-eye creases. It did not look dry or cakey and really seemed to perform and last very well.In addition, it really does seem to "brighten" the look of my under-eye area. I liked it so much that I'll be purchasing a tube of this the next time I'm in the vicinity of my local Sephora store. I wanted a really nice concealer to wear for my daughter's upcoming wedding since I really want to look my best. I think I've found it. The tube is different now from the one pictured on the top of the page..it's now in a slated/angle topped tube much like MAC's Pro Longwear lipsticks.
so this concealer is the real deal. i got the color pearl, it's light with pinker undertone for under the eyes. it does not crease at all. it covers well and comes in a very nice tube. it's not cheap, but it works well and has no fragrance which i like. It will replace my cle de peau -beige - for under eyes.
I just picked it up today because I never have anything in my bag to touch up my face when i'm on the go.
Even though it's a "concealer" i used it as a stick foundation and 6 hours later, it still has staying power like as if I just put it on. Looks natural and evened out my blotchy skin and acne scars.
Day 2 wearing it, after a consult. I'm about an NC20, and have the Natural. On my skin, it effectively covers circles - offers good coverage and colour, and definitely better blendability than YSL's Anti Cernes or Laura Mercier's undereye pot, which both look dry, and settle more irascibly into lines, without more prep than I'm willing to do (lots of moisturizing & careful application). With this, there's a bit of creasing but it's fixable with one touch. Most importantly, the finish is natural-looking, under a range of light conditions. Like very much so far.
edit: 1 week or so in - ok, I'm loving this, for marks & pigmentation as well as circles. I have the foundation too, but most days am fine with just this on mentioned areas, + a powder.
edit2: maybe a month in now? Ok, still really like it for eye area (underneath & lids, in my case), but it's slightly too heavy & moves around too much for marks. Will probably go back to l'Oreal's Touche Magique for those :/
Not worth the $$$$$. This may turn into a rant but how hard is it for a company to produce a product/concealer that stays put? We have all this technology and yet we can't produce a concealer that does what it says (ie conceal).
So, this is creamy and it seems stiff enough that it seems like it would stay where applied. Not true, I have had a little bit of a breakout. Applied my hourglass with my concealer brush. went to a drs appointment for two hours, came home and just about cried that I had been walking around with about three very obvious red pimples. Plain as day. Didn't even look like I had attempted to cover them.
Also, on some days I have a bit of extra redness around my nose and I use this. Again, doesn't stay. I set with powder, tried a setting spray, try primer, no primer. nothing.
Who are these people that create these products? Are they smoking crack while in production? Come on lets get it right people. It's 2013.
I love this concealer. I have slightly dry skin and I love how creamy and emollient this feels without being too "slippery." The pigmentation is great; it covers very well. I have never had any issues with creasing or with feeling like it was disappearing throughout the day. I apply it with an inexpensive E.L.F. takalon brush, which seems to work well. All in all, I think this is a great product that does what it claims to do.
I purchased this concealer in one of their new colors, Tan. I have neutral undertones in my skin and wear NC 25 to NC 35 in mac depending on the time of year. It is slightly dark for my skin right now, but I'm still able to use it without have a spot where I applied it so I plan on using this color year-round. I use this concealer for covering up blemishes and dark spots only as it is too dry in consistency (similar to studio finish concealer only in stick form) to use under the eyes. This concealer stays all day on my very oily skin, and it covers really well. It doesn't oxidize or come off as orange colored. I'd highly recommend it for spot concealing especially if you have oily skin.
Colour pearl my mac colour NC20.25. I use this daily so is that a sign it works mhhh not sure. The colour is good I like that its creamy as at 40 now my eyes are not as fresh as they were. I set with Laura mercier brightening powder and for me it stays all day doesn't seem to crease very much but I must add I don't have bad dark circles its more puffiness.
When I think about it seems good but I'm just not blown away. I also have Clinique airbrush which is good as well as armani all are good none are perfect.
so i gave into the hype of this concealer.. I have dry skin and i do moisturise it well but still found this concealer very drying on my and settles into the fine lines. It does brighten and its a thicker consistency compared to bobbi brown but i dont get the hype and i dont think its worth it. there are plenty of cheaper concealers on the market that will give a similar effect minus the dry texture.
I was excited to try purchase this, I have used lots of concealers over the years Cle De peau being one of them. Just after my Cle de Peau, I bought bye bye under eyes from it cosmetics. I really was looking for something that wouldn't crease and after using the whole tube up, the search continued. After reading one reviewer claim that's this concealer is a lot like Cle de peau, I had to get it. Yes, it is slightly similar to cdp, but not at all alike. This stuff is way too creamy and the staying power is horrible, I get bad creases and because it's clay based, under my eyes are flaky looking. Now, I do realize how much I disliked the bye bye undereye, it is really creamy and greasy BUT my eyes don't look dry and it doesn't crease that much and it's pigmented enough. I may go back to that but this vs cdp, cdp is a little thicker and more pigmented and has better staying power. Oh and i forgot to mention, I did use a primer, most famously the monistat chaffing gel, that stuff works wonders with bye bye under eye, but not with this, it practically helped slide this concealor off. It's better for blemishes not underneath the eyes.
