Reasons why I hate this product:
1. it is hard to blend into your skin. It feels like the concealer just sits ontop of your skin and makes a noticeable mark.
2. it doesn't neutralize my dark circles. (btw, I am using 04 medium petal)
3. it sinks into my fine lines and make them look more visible more.
this concealer is too dry and it sinks into my fine lines. only offers 3 colours which i think is inadequate cos the one i bought is too dark for my skintone.
there are better concealers out there for a better price.
When i was in America, i picked up the line/wrinkle concealer in a sephora,l and in all the chaos the sales guy lost it and gave me this by accident! i was not impressed at first when i got back the the UK and realised he had done that! anyways months down the line i used this as an all over concealer and it is AMAZING, perfect tone for my skin, fab coverage and you only need a small amount. I use it all over, and apply a little powder to set it.
Really love this product! I have horribly dark undereye circles and redness around my nose. But this product conceals it all and stays on the whole day. It's quite a thick consistency so it will look cakey if you don't warm it up a bit on your hand or between your fingers. For me it's the best undereye concealer ever. It is quite expensive, but it lasts me about a year. The only thing I don't really like is the packaging, it happens quite often that too much product gets out..
I HATE this product. I bought this thinking I would be able to use it for concealing blemishes too. It's only really for you eyes... hence all about eyes. But it's still frustrating that I payed close to 15$ or so for something just for my dark circles. And it doesn't even do that great of a job. I'm seriously dissapointed with Clinique at this point.
I am shocked that this product isn't a 5-star! I have horrible undereye circles, and redness around my nose in winter and late fall. This conceals them fantastically!
Just dot a LITTLE bit on the back of your hand and dot under eyes with a concealer brush and you'll look like you got 10 hours of sleep-even if you only got 5. I wouldn't use over acne, blemishes, etc. as it is very thick. it seems to have a fairly wide range of skin tones. I use Light 03, and it's perfect for me.
I am a huge fan of this product, it's the one makeup item I can't live without-except, of course, my Clinique Almost Powder Makeup!
EDIT: It's summer now, so I am using Clinique Acne Solutions Liquid Makeup. Just FYI. One thing it has started to do to m (the concealer) is settle into fine lines under my eyes. every few hours i just need to swip under the eyes. not a huge deal, but annoying so i'm taking off a lippie (as concealers are supposed to conceal and perfect, not be obvious). this with liquid foundation can look pretty cakey, just a warning. I would use this with powder if you're trying to decide.
I have oily skin and somewhat tanned/yellow based. I have been using clinique All About Eyes for 1 year now. I use it in combination with my YSL (which I recently gave up on) and other new choice of concealer. Sometimes I even go as far as use it as a full foundation (which I do not necessarily recommend).
This product is great when it comes to coverage. Cakey-ness wise it's great as well since it doesnt. It's TRUELY CREAMY and I currently am using the Deep Honey for my eyes. I love the fact that it's yellow based. Concealers need not be lighter than your skin all the time. I find that having concealers lighter than my skin makes it obvious that I have makeup on. As a guy...that's not too encouraging to have that feel when you're walking around.
Bottom line...love the packaging cuz it's easy squeeze. Love the yellow tone and creamy texture..because it covers and does not look cakey. I use it to cover the "obvious makeup look" of my eyes. That is the outer corner of my eyes where lighter concealers get too obvious. It just adds warmth to the concealer :)
I highly suggest you use it with other concealers...I find that it's more a corrector than a concealer :). But definitely ALL ABOUT EYES :)
I like how the product comes in a tube and also how a little bit goes a long way. It also lasts a while and doesn't oxidize on my face. I've been using this for 6 months until I switched to my Urban Decay 24/7 concealer pencil. However, this concealer had set into the lines around my eyes-- and I'm not even 18 yet. It's okay for concealing acne spots, but it makes them brownish looking instead. Also, the pigment had separated from the water when I placed it in my bag during the summer. Won't be repurchasing because you can find better concealers for the same price or less.
At first I was TOTALLY disappointed when Itried this at home. I only swatched it on my hands and followed my instincts for the color. The color was rioght though, but I found it a bit flaky and even more darkening.
After probably a week though, I was kinda happy (because it conceals the darkness after all)with it but not too happy(it accentuated lines - and I'm 19!). My Loreal Foundation Stick which I used as concealer before this, worked better( I used up two of those before I wanted to venture into something new).
One good thing about this is that I use it daily(because I want this to run out so I could buy a different one!), for a year now, and probably haven't used up half of it yet. So the quantity is worth your money, a little goes a long way too, but the quality? uhh, not that much.
I could not live without this product! Its the best concealer that I have used. I use it for my post acne red marks. I like that it stays put all day. It doesnt rub off or oxidize, and a little goes a long way.
