I don't think this is the best concealer out there (I'm still looking for that!), but it is a very competent one. I should mention that I only use it around my eyes though, and not on my face. I use the shade 'Medium Beige' for the under-eye area, and it does a good job of lightening the area. It does crease after a while, but I've found that with every single concealer I've used under my eyes - it's just a question of how quickly it happens. For the price (£12.50), and considering how long it lasts, it's a very good buy.
let me start out by saying that i first started using this concealer when i HAD no lines. i used it for about 10 years, starting at 17!! it used to work WONDERS...completely made my face look flawless. i never even though about using another concealer! the texture, color, and price were all perfect.
but a few months ago, i noticed that throughout the work day, my under eye area was looking completely parched. i would come back from lunch and notice TONS of caking and lines, making me look 10 years older!! yes, i do use eye cream and even with eye cream, where other concealers worked ok, this one still dried out on me. i don't know why it stopped working so well, maybe my skin just changed. i wish that i could still use this but it seems as though i "outgrew" it =-(
since it worked better for me when i *had* no lines, perhaps they should change the name to something other than "line smoothing" concealer.
if i ever find a way to make this work again, with a particular eye cream or something, then i will repurchase. but as of right now, it doesn't look like i will =(
im not usually a clinique fan..but i have gone through alot of concealer and thought i would give it a try. it actaully works very well for me. it makes me look awake although i use a different concealer for the my dark under eyes and i dab this in the worst bits. it has great covereage and i dont want it to look too heavy i just dab it and then i blend it...its a great concealer and defenite recommend!! i also use laura mercier secret brightning powder and they are amazing togther...the secreat to this product is not to over do it...add as u need it!
So I have been using this concealer for about 2 weeks now and so far so good. I bought this not for its “line smoothing” claims but because of it’s texture it felt light, NOT greasy and NOT drying. It did not cake and stayed for basically the whole day. I use it as an eye and spot concealer. I tend to stay up late so sometimes so I think I need something with more coverage but most of the times it does a pretty good job. As for packaging I typically like tubes because I can squeeze ever last bit. I’ll wait and see weather I would buy it again.
This has really good coverage. It does smooth out the lines a little, as the name says. On me it lasts all day. My only wish is that they had more shades.
I gave this product a '3' for everything because that's what it is to me, a perfectly workable concealer that does everything you could want from one. It's a good colour match for me, blends well whilst maintaining good coverage, is suitable for blemishes as well as uneven tones, and is just good overall. But it is not HG stuff simply because sometimes it cakes up or even flakes as my skin dries out a little in the course of a day, and because I prefer cream concealers. But this is a very good everyday concealer, but not so much when you might need a little extra help.
I am going to purchase this again since I lost it. I am a brown skinned black woman with a little darkness under my eyes and sometimes bags. I like how this blended really well with my skin tone, and did not cake. I've been using the make concealer that comes in a small jar thingy--and it is too dry, cake, and light for my skin. And the price for it isn't too bad either. and its easy to apply. if you can find one to match your tone, go for it! just dont make the mistake of applying this to blemishes! i did this, and yikes!
I really like this concealer, and I think I've tried every brand on the market. I love that it's thick enough to offer real redness coverage, but still thin enough to use under my eyes. I use the wand to dab the concealer, and then a brush to blend it in. I've had no problems with caking. I'd definitely re-purchase this product.
I really liked the consistency and coverage of this product, but after having used it for a few months realized that the color (light) is too dark, and as it's their lightest shade I won't repurchase.
Maybe they have changed the formula since some of the previous reviews, as I really like this concealer. I have tried soooooooo many high end and low end concealers....my last fav was maybelline age rewind but I might like this better. The maybelline can look cakey halfway through the day but this is still smooth and flawless. This concealer is creamy, thick, and soooo smooth. blends in to my skin perfectly and really does mask fine lines well. I use a powder over it (specifically mac studio fix) and it does not get cakey or turn colors....just looks perfect. I had to dab a tiny bit extra under my eyes as I have very very very aful bags under my eyes, but it hasn't worn off in the slightest and I look fresh and beautiful even after working all day. This also works wonders on blemishes....a little dab and they are covered all day. doesn't rub off raised blemishes like most concealers (making them look worse...eww!). Just keeps me pretty and perfect. I think I might convert permanently to this product!
