FINALLY an end to my life-long quest of finding an under-eye concealer that REALLY WORKS!! I will never again use another under-eye concealer as long as I can get this product!! I'm 38 and have had TERRIBLE hereditary, sun damaged & severe allergy dark eye circles since I was about 22. I've also been trying to hide them since then...with a fury. I also have excessive eye wrinkling for my age due to sun-damage and heredity. Never have I said I found a product that worked well in covering my circles & wrinkles although I feel I've "tried 'em all". ...UNTIL NOW! MY HG Under-eye concealer at last!! Never settles into lines or wrinkles, lasts all day and never cakes (unless using too much product, mixing with another product other than primer/moisturizer/SPF, or improper application). AMAZING & never before seen coverage and beautiful finish (looks more natural than any full-coverage makeup I've ever seen)!! I find that it is best to get your exact skin color in this, rather than lighter because it is so opaque that lighter will be noticeable.
MAKE SURE YOU GET THE RIGHT COLOR AND WORK ON APPLICATION TECHNIQUES UNTIL IT WORKS PERFECTLY FOR YOU. Those who say it doesn't work, I believe are not applying it correctly or have the wrong color. That's just because it works SO PERFECTLY FOR ME though :) !! First of all, too little product will result in poor coverage and to much product will create application problems. I found it tricky to apply for the first month or so of use, but figured out that moisturizing is a must because this product is quick-drying so moisturizer gives you extra time before it dries making it easier to apply. When it starts to dry STOP touching it. Wait until it dries and put another layer on, in areas that need more coverage or touching up. I find my finger is the only way to apply this concealer to my under-eyes successfully. I try to put it on in one smooth swipe across and quickly blend out until it starts drying. Then I wait until its dry and put another coat on. You can even put a 3rd and 4th coat on if you keep the coats relatively thin and don't touch it while its drying. I also find it doesn't mix well with other concealers or foundations. I only use a super-light HD powder on top of it to set it. By the end of a very long work day I still have perfect coverage but may have the SLIGHTEST (less than any other concealer I've ever tried) creases under my eyes which are easily smoothed over to the former perfect finish...first smooth it over with JUST a finger and then with a touch of HD powder applied with a finger. I never touch it up during the day and only need to do "the smoothing" if I'm going out after work. continued >>
This concealer is really the best I've tried. It goes on so creamy under the eye!! I couldn't believe what I was seeing when I first tried it at Sephora. Usually a concealer looks very dry under my eyes but this one is dewy and creamy. It is waterproof and has great staying power. Try it....you will definitely not be dissapointed.
I bought this 2 weeks ago. I have been using Benefit Erase Paste, and based on some MUA reviews, decided to try this to compliment my new purchase of Mac F&B. I LOVE it!! It comes in a tube, so the control you have over the amount is PERFECT. You do not require a ton of product, so although it is pricey, I can see this will last me for a long time so I don't mind. Digging Erase Paste of of the little pot always stressed me out (I lost the tiny spatula that came with it) as it gets under my nail...(ewwww...gross). This is a great smooth formula, that does not cake or gather in my fine lines under my eyes (41 will do that to you ladies). Also, I like to use a tiny bit on my lids...in addition to my TFSI it lightens and brightens my lids for better shadow colour. The coverage lasts all day, even when my foundation seems to have reached it's limit at the end of a long work day, the skin under my eyes still looks nice with no darkness or wear out. It is worth a try ladies! continued >>
Not worth it for the price, I don's see much under eye coverage. Very liquid. Mac corrector is much better.
This is hands down the best concealer I ve ever came across and god knows I came across soooo many Lol.
I have dark circles and puffiness, thanks to my genetics, my dark circles could be covered just with a foundation but puffiness was a HUGE problem for me, no matter how many hours I slept and how much makeup I put as soon as walked in my work I would hear things like Oh you look tired!!! I hated those comments especially when I had a full night sleep and felt rested, so I started looking for a concealer that not only will hide my dark circles but brightens to help lessen the bags appearance.
This concealer does exactly what I was looking for as soon as you put you notive a big difference it really brightens th eye really well, the coverge is medium to full, the best thing about it it doesnt cake, I woulnt know about fine lines cause I dont have any yet, its waterproof and stays put all day even when Im sweating buckets.
Also its not drying although it tends to be less brightening at the end of the day but it definitly does not dry out.
I have a nice fair olive skin that i unfortunetly could not let breath without foundation because of the dark circles and bag with this concealer I can finally put just a moisturizing creme and walk without make up with my head high :) love it love it. HG for me I even bought a second tube ''in case'' ...
I've been using this for years, then tucking it away to try the next best thing. Then ultimately coming back to it begging for forgiveness! I was hooked on Bobbi Brown for so long, then recently while on vacation, I had to use my magnifying mirror x20 to put on my makeup and nearly vapor-locked. ICK! That's all I can say. It was so bunched up and made little bumps under my skin because it's way to thick. Nothing I could do now since I had with me what I was going to use until I returned home. I'll have a cocktail and forget about it. UNTIL.... I was strolling through Ceasar's Palace in Las Vegas and the Premier skin care SA approached me and asked if he could apply some collegan around my eyes. UGH! Did he have to go there? Anyway, I'm back Lancome - for good. You stay on through thick and thin. You act as a shadow primer. You never bunch. You never crease above or below. You smooth everything out. I love you!
I've been using this product for years and I love it. It's the only concealer that I can use that doesn't make the tiny lines around my eyes more visible. Plus it's truly waterproof. The past few years though I have been noticed that it just hasn't been working the way it used to. I wondered if they changed the formula - but no; it's ME changing. I'm getting not only the discoloration under the eye but the puffiness that comes with being in my mid-fifties. I recently heard the cover-up remedy for this is to get a cover pencil that is made for this problem and literally draw it over the line of the "bag". I haven't found the pencil yet, but when I do I will re-post.
This product is meant for small blemishes there and there. I do apply this with my ring finger under my eyes and blend it up on my eyelids, it doesn't give a full coverage but I do put some foundation powder on my face including my eyes and it looks flawless. It's a great product, but for a high end department, not so much. I like it because it's liquid, instead of cream. Cream concealers tend to crease and settle in lines making it noticeable you are wearing makeup.
I have been using this concealer for many years in the shade 02 - Beige Sable. It is perfect for brightening the whole eye area, especially concealing dark circles. The consistency is perfect, not too liquid like many other I have tried, and it lasts the whole day. I also use it to cover up spots as it makes them vanish completely! Even though it is pricey, the tube lasts a very long time.
A perfect multi-purpose concealer in my opinion!
