I absolutely love this product for hiding my dark circles! HG!
It is important to put a moisturizing eye cream before application or else the concealer will bring out dry lines beneath your eyes. For that, I use Origins Eye Doctor.
I bought this concealer after hearing great reviews about it from my best friend! I found that it was too thin and barely covered anything that needed covering! The only thing I liked about this product was that it was light and it seemed as though it reflected light which was nice for under eye coverage. But still too light for my NC25-30 complexion. I'm very disappointed in this product.
My HG concealer! The first time I tried it I was amazed. I have quite obvious dark circles and it has always bothered me, I have searched and searched for the perfect concealer for years and have always been let down until I found this one.
I use the lightest shade, porcelain. It is an actual godsend. I opted for not getting the concealer with the powder as my Chanel powder does the job just fine.
Excellent product, would definitely recommend!
I absolutely love this concealer and have been using it for years. Most days I wear it on its own with out foundation and it blend beutifully. I wear chesnut and although its looks light it the pot it matches perfectlly with my BB warm walnut foundation. Will definately be purchasing it again in the future.
This is my HG under eye concealer. I have red and green spider veins under my eyes, the skin there is really thin and they are one of the things that bothers me immensely! I've used MAC concealer in W35 and though it looked fine in the room-light, in the sun it looked red on me and made my dark under eyes look even more prominent than before.
Bobbi Brown cosmetics are know for their yellow undertones this product does wonders for me. I use it in Golden and they make my veins disappear. Its amazing.
I prefer using a brush to dust on the loose powder than the puff provided. Its best to use a little moisturizer before using it especially closest to the lashes so as not to make fine lines there more obvious.
This is the best concealer I've found so far. I've tried drugstore brands hoping to find a cheaper alternative but had no real luck. They leave my under eye area looking grayish. If I try the next shade up it's too dark so I'm just going to stick with this. It lasts a long time so over all it's worth it's weight. At first I didn't like it because I thought it was too thick but now using a light application it works perfectly. Gives me that awake look. I don't have very dark circles but now that I'm in my thirties, and having a stressful job the dark circles are coming out. I really like how creamy it is. I might give the laura mercier one a try when I run out of this but I definitely would repurchase this one as it gets the job done. Theres only slight creasing and all I have to do is lightly run my finger over it and takes the creasing away without losing coverage so I really can't complain.
I've been using this for about 6 weeks, almost every day. I just have the concealer, not the stacked kit others talk about. I use Honey-5 and it looks a little orange-y in the pot bc it's so yellow, but so am I lol and it blends in perfectly on me. I don't have dark circles, but my under eye area can look a little sallow and I use this to complete my face and make the area the same color as the rest of me. I use a brush to blend over primer then pat with my finger and set with nars loose powder. It's perfect and lasts all day on me. I have barely made a dent in the pot, even though I've been using it for a while. A little goes a long way. Should last me another 5 months at least. I swapped for this one, but I will buy it when I run out.
I was on a lookout for a yellow based concealer and I found this!
This concealer has two "compartments". The top stores the creamy concealer and it opens up to a small mirror. Easy for touchups or act as a cute mini mirror lol! The bottom stores the sheer finish loose powder.
I got mine in Warm Beige. The loose powder is in Pale Yellow. It also comes with a cute little puff.
Pros: Very creamy. I think this is best applied with a concealer brush. When I apply it on the whole under eye (i.e starting from the tear ducts and lower lash down to where the under eye circle ends), it really really brightens my whole face! With no ashy or white cast.
Cons: A bit on the costly side
It does settle onto my fine lines, but I seldom or never use the setting powder. Well, for a reason!
The powder spills out from the sifter and if i wanted to use it I'd have to be really careful not to spill the excess amount from the case! :(
Overall, quite a good yellow based concealer! If you have minimal fine lines, go for it! Remember to moisturize first!
I couldn't bring myself to use it on my face (because of the petrolatum), but I love this as an under eye concealer. A little goes a looooong way too. Sometimes I apply it with an Ecotools concealer brush, but I generally prefer to pat it on and blend lightly with my fingertip. After I powder it, I do the rest of my makeup then come back to smooth it out a little. This removes any excess and "sets" it for the day. I find that it stays the entire day without creasing and covers my bluish discolorations well; however, if I don't moisturize my eye area extremely well before applying, it makes my eyes look old and tired. Aside from that detail, this is a lovely and effective concealer.
PROS: Goes on okay at first. A lot of people like this. Pretty good coverage.
CONS: Ran right off within minutes and settled in lines. Even the artist couldn't get it to stay on me with the powder for the eyes.
APPLICATION TIPS: If this is too runny on you, try waiting a while after applying your eye cream before putting on concealer (this still didn't work for me, though.)
ALTERNATES: HE with lighter coverage (but buildable) would be Dior's Hydrating concealer. For full coverage but not runny, DS would be Mayb. Mineral Power and HE full coverage is Cle De Peau.
