This is a wonderful product. I am so glad I purchased this. It was $10 at Walgreens. And I got the shade Medium/ Deep which is two shades light but I am going to use it to correct my acne scarring and to highlight. I already did a test run through and it stays put. Long lasting, full coverage, and it's looks flawless. I couldn't believe the results after applying and how it set with just a patting of ELF pressed powder. My only complaint is the small range of color selection. Because I would love to use all over my face, with a more truer tone and then highlight with the med/ deep tone. I still recommend if you can find your shade. <3
I am def a MAKEUP JUNKY! I spend at LEAST a couple hours everyday researching new products and swatches and its rare a week goes by with a purchase or 2. SO... HG for me isn't something I say to often to describe a product..I always feel I can find better...So this is MY HD UNDEREYE CONCEALER AND HIGHLIGHTER. It is the PERFECT shade of pink for my cool toned skin. It's not to dry or chalky like some I've tried The dry parts of my skin don't react well to most liquid long wear products..it looks flakey and patchy. THIS DOES NOT DO THAT. It blends in nicely and will stay put. I'm 31 and I'm fortunate not to have wrinkles yet but it doesn't settle in my undereye lines. I ALWAYS contour my face and this looks so good in all those highlighting places! The sponge can be ripped off easily if it bothers you, don't let that scare u into not trying it. Even though it's a brighter it's opaque enough that as long ure circles aren't to bad u won't even need an extra concealer but if so it doesn't get flakey either...I usually wear rimmel awake concealer right under my eyes on top of this.
Love everything about this concealer!! HG concealer for sure.
This review is for the concealer in the opaque white tube.
If you had asked me a few months ago if you could use the same concealer on blemishes that you use under the eyes, I would've said no way. I've been using 2 different concealers on both areas for a long time. On a whim I got this concealer and tried it on both areas and was surprised that it really works. For the eyes I just dab and blend out with a fluffy brush. For blemishes & acne scars, I dab and then let it sit for a little while. I think if you go after it with your finger or a brush right away the coverage starts sheering out. If you let it sit for a bit while you do your mascara or brows or something, though, the coverage stays. I like using a flat top Sigmax style brush and gentle patting motions to blend the edges of blemishes. I have really bad acne scarring and usually only the most industrial of concealers will cover it. This does cover it. If you set with powder it stays all day. I love that it's a one-stop concealer shop.
I have always wanted this in the brightening shade but never really purchased it bc it looked way too dark pink for me in the packaging. I am SO GLAD I finally gave in and bought it. I have very fair skin (I am an NC20/25 or Dior shade 23)and have yellow undertones. I usually buy under eye products in the lightest shade available to give me the awake look. When I first applied the brightening shade under my eye I initially thought it was way too dark pink for me... as soon as I started blending I fell in love with it! Topped with my Dior forever powder in shade 23, I look instantly awake and perky. Not even the YSL touché éclat made me look like this. Im excited to try to use this in other areas of my face to highlight also. I would definitely be repurchasing this!
This stuff rocks my socks off! For those of you who don't like it, I think it is important to remember that is a dark circle corrector, not a concealer. Proper application with this product is also key. For this product to work correctly, you also need to purchase the correct color. I am a cool toned blond with pink undertones, but I pick the yellowiest color I can find which I think is the "light". Yellow will cancel out dark shadows and give you that under eye glow that Kim Kardashian's makeup artist has used on her. I also happen to love the applicator but I never touch it to my face.
I always apply this by dipping a small fluffy Sigma brush that I have had for ages and only use for concealer application onto the sponge applicator. I apply a generous amount of the product under my eyes in a triangle and bring it way down almost to the middle of my cheek. . I saw Kim's makeup pro Mario demo this on a You Tube video about a year ago.. Next, blend, blend, blend lightly with the brush. Apply some setting powder if you like. The result is a GLOW like you would not believe.
Google Kim's makeup artist...his name is Mario and his last name starts with a D. He has a blog and I believe he also does You Tube videos but I have not watched one is ages.
I for one hope that Maybelline NEVER discontinues this product. Maybelline should also post some You Tube videos on the proper application of this product. If I were a rank beginner with makeup I would not have the slightest idea of what to do with this product. With a little practice, you can achieve stellar results.
HG product!!!!!! It's rather sheer which you would think would make it wouldn't cover well but the coverage is amazing! It hides my moderate dark spots in the corner of my eyes like a dream. Some days I will wear nothing but this under my eyes and around my nose and will be good to go and I'm normally a full coverage foundation everyday type of girl. Love love love this product!
YES!! wow, this product has opened my eyes - I am a normally a heavy foundation wearer because I have uneven pinky skin, but I decided to take a chance and try a different approach: by wearing BB cream & a concealer. It has been an AMAZING decision. This concealer is brilliant. I put it under my eyes and on any zits/pink areas (like around my nose) and I think I look pretty flawless. I never realized there was an alternative to heavy foundation, but this has worked for me. Points off for the nasty potentially-bacteria-harboring applicator though - if it starts looking ugly I might just try to rip it off.
I needed a concealer and after reading positive reviews I thought id try this one out, I have tried the undereye one a year or two back and recall liking it, but back then my circles werent nearly as bad. Anyway, I rate this product a zero because I couldnt even USE it - the stupid click applicator thing broke or something because it doesnt click when it turns and the product doesnt come out. STUPID PACKAGING !! what a waste of money. Buy a concealer with different applicator.
Let me start off by saying i have really bad hyper pigmentation on my cheeks so i was looking for a heavy duty concealer. I was excited when maybelline first came out with this product specifically for dark spots because I'm a fan of the under their under eye concealer, even though and i think this goes for everyone, I'm not a fan of the sponge tip applicator. But unfortunately this just didnt cut it for me. It was too light in texture i actually like something i little more full coverage. The shade selection was also not the best, i think i might have gotten the wrong shade but having chosen the second to lightest shade i was surprised it ended up being still too dark for my skin tone. With a $9 price tag its not a bad concealer but still didn't cover up those pesky dark spots! Dont know if ill be repurchasing.
