i don't actually use it to smooth out lines, cause i haven't got any.
I was browsing around in a department store for a good concealer yesterday to cover some blemish spot i got this month (very annoying!). when the SA introduced me to this product. At first she tried it on my hands to find the right color for me. And then she tried it on my face, on the blemish spot. It seems to have a good coverage on me. So i took it to the register and decided to buy it. I put it on today...and so far i'm still pretty happy with the result. The price is not that bad, considering i only need a teeny tiny amount to cover my spot.
I can't really comment on it and judge its "line smoothing" abilities (considering I don't have wrinkles.....yet) but its a super nice concealer!! It goes on smoothly, covers nicely, doesn't cost too much, and I can use it on various parts of my face. Just a weird thing I noticed - when I dab it on with the sponge-tip, it'll match my skin perfectly and I'll hardly be able to tell where I put it. But when I reach down to my counter to grab a brush to blend it all in, the concealer will have already darkened enough for me to distinctly see where I applied it - it takes like 2 seconds for the change to occur. But it blend into my desirded shade anyway. Good stuff, def. repurchase!
One word: horrible.
Ok im 20 and Im starting to have somewhat of an expression line under my eye, and this thing being 'line smoothing' i thought i would give it a shot after reading some good reviews in a magazine. Umm.... no. I dont know why they would call it line smoothing. Its more like inline CAKING. This made me look about 10 years older.
Idk. might be good for covering other imperfections but it is definitely NOT line smoothing.
i just rediscover this concealer! LOVE IT! i used to wear moderately fair and that was too light that's why i stopped using it. I bought medium beige (I'm a NC 25-30) and it goes on flawless and stay on well. Great coverage. It's more than moderate coverage..it's in between moderate to full but definitely buildable. The best thing is that it is not cakey, it goes on smooth and blendable. I do not have lines but it goes over acne very nice and even, not patchy. Medium Beige is a yellow/golden, Moderately Fair is neutral, Medium looks too pinky peach on me and it is too dark. I always thought Medium Beige is darker than Medium but Medium is way darker (maybe for NC 35 in MAC). I compared it on my face to make sure as well. O yah, this never broke me out and my skin is very sensitive and oily.
Coverage : moderate to full
Texture : lightweight, easy to blend, buildable
Color range : light, moderately fair, medium, medium beige, medium honey, deep, deeper, deep honey
As a concealer, it isn't a really great product, it doesn't last long enough. However, it works great as a eye make up base, it holds the eye shadow in place. I think it's even better than primer potion by urban decay. The UDPP makes the eyeshadow difficult to smudge, though it does keep the shadow long. But this product holds the eyeshadow as well as the shadow smudges easily on it.
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.
