I bought this years ago and hated it, but now I've learned how to use it. So please don't give up on it if you don't get on with it at first.
I brought number 2. I have very pale skin and very dark circles under my eyes.
I always put moisturiser on under my eyes, then use the peach colour, warming it between my fingers first. Then gently patting it on the dark parts under my eyes. I use a damp sponge to set it, then apply foundation on top.
This is the only corrector/ concealer that has brightened and concealed my very dark circles. It can be tricky at first as it's very thick, as others have noticed. If you apply eye cream first and use a damp sponge to set it, it should be fine.
And most importantly, it's not tested on animals.
It was a toss up for me between this product and the Corrector kit from Colorescience. I ended up buying both...more color concealing options with the Corrector Kit, however this one is more convenient to carry in my purse.
I truely love both and would recommend both.
The differences are: Jane Iredale has a creamy feel to it and can also have a bit of a sheen.
The Colorescience is very matte looking so it comes down to preference. Neither will clog your pores, and both look absolutely fabulous.
I would purchase both again.
I wanted to love this! I have terrible dark under eye circles all my life and the peach concealer was the only thing I have ever found that erased them like a pencil eraser. Unfortunately for me something in the creamy formula bothered my allergies. I did not break out or anything but my eyes felt watery all day.
Although i mix the concealers to match me just fine, it seems to wear off quit quickly and makes my mascara smudge if they make contact with one another. Within a few hours it appears I slept in my makeup and woke up with what ever was left over still on my face. It is very greasy. I was disappointed and wont be buying it again.
I have used this on and off for several years. I use number 2, but only the salmon coloured side; the lighter side is no use to me. The salmon colour is superb for cancelling out my blue/purple dark circles. It is thick and cakey and tends to crease. If it would stay put I would use it forever.
great ingredients , coverage, color match, non drying, non oily. just right. i 've been searching for the perfect concealer for under eye area which doesnt contain harsh chemicals and good coverage. this one is hands down. the dark side i could use for other darker skin area of the face or mix it with the light shade for the eye area. great staying power and very hydrating. i think it is the best one hands down. i tried the famous bobbi brown many of their products for under eyes, nothing compared.
The Best under eye concealer EVER..... and I have tried many. Will buy again and again :)
I felt compelled to write a review for this since I had trouble color matching. I'm usually a mac nc42, bobbi brown warm honey, and wear jane iredale pressed base in fawn.
When researching this I had a heck of a time figuring out which shade to wear since most pics online were awful stock photos and most users were very fair. I finally took the plunge and ordered shade #3 at a place with a good return policy. It was a match!
Initially I thought I would only use the lighter half of the pan but I found that I needed to pat on the lighter shade first with my ring finger and then add a touch of the darker shade to tone down the lightening. Amazing! No having to scoop out any (what a waste) and the heat of my finger melts it onto my skin.
Previously I was using tarte undercover in medium but this has it beat with the more yellow/golden/warm undertones. Awesome product.
I've been looking for a concealer for the redness around my nose and this one does the trick. I purchased the lightest shade #1 and the darker of the two is nearly a perfect match to my fair skin. I've used it for two weeks now without any problems. Actually the redness is less noticeable without makeup. It lasts all day and is creamy but not heavy. I don't feel like I have anything on. I found that patting (not wiping) is the best way to apply and believe me, less is more. It melts into the skin. It is very easy to put too much on.There's not much in the container, but the small amount needed should have this lasting a long time. I use this on my eyelids too, when all I want to wear is mascara. The creamy texture is great for that and lasts all day long. I use Absence primer before applying this product. For the first time in my life I feel and look natural with this concealer. I'm really happy with the product. I'll update more later.
Have been using it for about a month now. Mine is #2 shade.
I ordered it online and when it arrived I was really excited about a very light color since I have very visible dark circles and prefer using lighter shades than my natural skin tone on my undereye area. However it actually ended up being too light for me, and it's in shade#2 on my fair to medium skin tone. Pink color in the concelear is just useless, even though I liked the idea. Also this concealer gets into every single tiny wrinkle, some of which are not even visible before I put it.
Now I use the white color for redness around my nose and breakouts. I wear it under my powder or foundation. Works better as a concealer for redness as it does for dark circles.
Going to continue using my "unsafe" garnier eye roller until I find it a good natural alternative.
