This product doesn't really do much for my undereye circles, but it certainly brightens my face and makes my skin look super glowy/radiant, which I love. I swipe it under my eyes, in a triangular shape along my cheekbones, down the slope of my nose, on my chin & cupids bow, and just a little bit between my brows. Then I blend, blend, blend with a concealer/foundation brush, and wow! It makes me look super energized an really opens up my face. Especially when paired w/a nice contour and sheer, peachy blush like NARS' Orgasm on the apples of my cheeks. It made my complexion look super healthy. It didn't totally cover up my undereye circles, which is fine, because with a brightening concealer, I like to put a little layer of regular concealer over it anyway (just under the eyes, not the other spots I mentioned). So I used Maybelline's Dark Circle Eraser right on top under my eyes, and then blended with a beauty blender. The results were great. Very airbrushed, smooth & bright. The one thing I don't like about the packaging is that it's difficult to get the product going with these pens, because you have to twist and twist and twist, and then a ton of product ends up coming out like a volcano, and I feel like it gets wasted. Other than that, I would repurchase this again, but I feel like it should be a bit cheaper. You don't get a ton of product, so I try to use this kinda sparingly. I think I might try out Hard Candy's brightening concealer next.
I bought this just to try it out. It's the kind of pen where you twist one end until the product starts to come out the brush at the other end, which is my first qualm. It says it should only take one or two clicks to get the product going after the first time but I have to sit there and click several more times and I can never gauge how much is gonna come out. The product itself is alright, it's too sheer to do anything significant for my circles but I like to use it to highlight my inner corners, eyebrow arch, cheeks, and nose. Throughout the day, however, it gets really oily (I don't set it because that would take away the glow it gives) and I wipe my face pretty often to get rid of oils. It grosses me out when I see the product on my fingers after I touch my face.
I don't like this concealer. I find it too dry, it accentuates every line that I have, and I moisture my under eye.
I like how highlights my dark circles though.
Overall, a concealer that makes you look like you have wrinkles can't be good, that's why I rated it with a 2. I won't purchase this again.
this worked amazingly for my undereye circles. little dry but it brightens. i got the lightest shade which is radiant. but it depends on what your skin tone is. it's definitely NOT oily so it's good for oily skin. :)
I have TERRIBLE under eye circles due to my heritage. This is how I control my circles: I apply this maybelline instant age rewind dark circle eraser generously, allow it to set for a couple minutes and then dab it in. Then apply my foundation. After all of my make up routine is finished i then touch up the darkest part of my cricles with Maybelline dreamlumi touch highlighting concealer.
The second I applied it under my eyes, it started to burn really bad and I had to take it off right away. However, I gave it to my friend and she really likes it, so it would probably work for most people, but if you have really sensitive skin like me, don't use it.
I was fooled by how dark Radiant and Ivory look in the package. They're easily light enough for someone with NC15 skin. Ivory is too yellow for my NW15 skin, so I'm going to repurchase this in Radiant. Even so, this works well as an undereye concealer, which is what I purchased it for. UPDATE: Radiant looks more natural than Ivory did, even though Ivory matches the skin on my arm better. Strange but welcome.
This stuff is great! I use it over Benefit's Erase paste and it's super amazing at brightening my undereye area. It also does a decent job of hiding minor blemishes. I tend to layer on concealers and the creamy liquid texture of this one works very well as the top layer, since it doesn't cake up. I would say it can be pretty expensive at some stores, especially since you don't get very much product. The cheapest place I've found it is at Target.
I bought the product in the shade Radiant. When I applied the product I really liked it but throughout the day my skin started to burn. Like, it seriously hurt. so. bad. I don't know what the problem was or if it's happened to anyone else but I had to stop using it.
I bought this product in "Radiant" for fair skintones. I like the click-pen packaging, and this product is very portable. It really brightens up the darkness under my eyes, but it settles into fine lines and cakes very easily. Despite that, I will repurchase because i can easily fix the settling with powder.
