I have used this concealer now for about six months and I find it works well for my undereyes. I have a dry and lighter undereye area than the rest of my face with some fine lines and some puffiness so I treat my eyes nightly and in the morning before I apply my concealer. I do not overuse it. I apply to the back of my hand and use a pencil brush to lightly apply where needed and then use elf's concealer brush (only $3) to buff it out. Some days I need to do an extra layer but only after the first layer is completely set. I tried a mini stippling brush and also a sponge but the elf brush works best for me. DW Concealer is thick and it is heavy but if applied right it provides all day coverage with no creasing. You have to work quickly because it dries fast. I do not put any powder over it as it not needed seeing it dries matte. It will make it look a bit cakey I have found. I highly recommend this concealer as it is excellent if applied sparingly. So I feel it is a good deal seeing a little will go a long way.

This is the best concealer I have ever used and I used a lot of them. I have always had dark circles under my eyes.
the cream doesn't settle in your lines. It doesn't make you look like an negative raccoon. It comparably less expensive than the Chanel/ Dior ridiculousness. ( I save those purchases for shadow and liner)
For me there will only be Estee!

I've been using this concealer for years, I apply it over sunscreen in a inverted triangle shape under my eyes and gently tap it in with my fingers and blend outwards.

I don't have any issues with creasing or cakeing, but i have a very very light hand with products and only use the tiniest amount possible, I find this sinks into my skin nicely so it looks quite natural if you don't use much.

I wish the shade selection was broader though, as I'm looking to get a concealer to use as a highlighter and would absolutely just buy a lighter shade of this one...except I'm already wearing the lightest shade as a match to my skintone.

My first high-end concealer. Not blown away, but applies quite nicely with a brush. So far used for covering acne, haven't tried on eye circles yet.

1st under eye concealer I've ever used that works! Doesn't crease, doesn't reveal lines I never knew I had, doesn't look crepey or creepy, covers up under eye circles pretty well, looks natural. I've tried Maybelline Age Rewind (Age Fast Forward on my eyes-horrid), Revlon, Pixi, L'oreal and they all look awful - make circles look waaaay worse than they are. I don't have bad circles, but I wanted a bit of brightening, and an eyeshadow base. Perfect for both! I'm NC 25-30 and thought Light would be too pink, but it's perfect.

EL Double Wear Foundation works well on me, so I thought I'd give under eye concealer ONE LAST SHOT, and this one is really great. At first application, it looks slightly unnatural, but as soon as it melts into my skin, it looks beautiful. 12 hours later, after working out and swimming it STILL looks great. Amazing.
I make sure to moisturize well under eyes before use, I don't powder over it, and I seriously can't believe how dewy and fresh it looks hours later!

This concealer wasn't too impressionable on me.

I recall it having medium coverage and that the formula blended nicely into my skin, but its staying power lasted for only five hours or so. I would notice my acne blemishes peeping from the concealer.

However, I do prefer this over one of NARS' concealers (of which I can't remember the name, unfortunately).

Contrary to most opinions, I find this to crease, flake and possess minimum coverage. At the end of the day I just look older and tired. I've tried my best to make it work but alas it's not for me though in general I love the Double Wear line. My tube is finishing soon, so this is not a review based on several attempts.

Absolutely fab concealer! I've used different brands varying from Mac to Chanel - this is the best I've tried so far! I like high coverage from my concealer - I have quite fair skin with purple discolouration under my eyes - they're not a problem area for me by any means but I just don't like being able to see the purple after I've done my makeup! This is the only concealer so far that I've got high coverage without the cakeyness! Recently, I've been using this in conjunction with the bobbi brown intensive skin serum corrector and it looks fab! I'm nw20 and use warm light In this concealer

I am so bummed that this broke me out when applied anywhere else besides under the eye. I had originally thought it was HG because I could use under my eyes to hide dark circles and on dark spots on my face. However, now I can only use this under the eye. It does a good job of hiding my dark under eye circles and has pretty good lasting power. However for other areas on the face I would not recommend this for combination skin. I would probably purchase this again because there are only 2 under eye concealers for me that truly cover and don't look too cakey- Mac prolong wear concealer and this.

I have dark under eyes which are very hard to cover up. Concealers are either too thick, not enough coverage, Cakey or drying etc. you know the struggle if you have my issues too!
I have this in light/medium. I like to use a moist beauty blender to blend it out. Not too moist otherwise it will separate. I always make sure I've moisturised the under eye. When I put my foundation on I run the brush under the eyes so a bit of foundation only goes to the under eye area. Then I go in with this concealer. It sets itself so no powder to set is necessary. I honestly can't complain about this product. It doesn't crease for me and provides great coverage considering I don't have to use a corrector as well. I will definately repurchase.
