Did they change the formula for this? I recently purchased this from Saks (I think) and it seems to be greasier than the one I originally ordered online before it was available from Saks. I do not like it as much as before. It doesn't really cover my dark circles that well. Not nearly like Bobbi Brown corrector does.
OMG...why are there positive reviews on this?....this was so cakey and made every pore and line show up.....definately go to the store to try it on before you dish out $78 dollars. I did and I am glad I did not waste my money
Yes, this concealer is VERY expensive...BUT....God, so worth it. It covers everything. And on those mornings where I look like I didn't sleep a wink---it brightens me up right away and I walk into work looking fresh and radiant. It's not cakey at all, goes on smooth, and to be honest...you don't look like you're wearing makeup. I pair this with Laura Mercier secret brightening powder #2, and it's my little secret that keeps me looking fab at all times.
PROS: Lived up to the hype pretty well. Didn't run on me. Great coverage/highly pigmented, but not cakey (may want to use an eye cream first.) Lasted pretty well on the skin. I'm an N15 (leaning toward NC), and I was ivory. Beige was just a little too dark and too orange.
CONS: Poor variety of color choices (there were only four.)
ALTERNATES: For DS alternate, Mayb. Mineral Power. HE alternate would be Dior Hydrating (have to layer that one if you want heavier coverage, but it's beautiful).
I got this after trying it out at the CdP counter. I was deliberating between this and the bobbi brown concealer but decided to shell out for this in the end. This product is excellent. It is creamy, easy to blend, non-drying and covers well. Great for all the small imperfections. I can't say much about the under-eye area as I don't have much dark eye circles. But it is easy to get on the undereye and wears quite comfortably, no creasing experienced and no drying or irritations at all. I am using it in beige and use a synthetic concealer brush to put it on. The CdP concealer is well deserving of its good rep. I would definitely buy again.
Definitely HG material- I'm on my sixth tube and we're talking fantastic coverage of some serious undereye circles here. Great finish, great shade (ivory is a fair shade with yellow undertones) for my NW15 skin. In my southern-California living days I wore Ocher, which also has yellow undertones and was a very good fit when my skin was darker. It is easy to apply, can be layered for extra coverage and once applied lasts much longer than most undereye concealers. Caking and settling into creases/lines is minimal and this stuff does not slide off easily. It looks equally great applied with a brush or with a finger, but do yourself a favor and warm it up a bit to get a real good "melt" into your skin. I can wear this with or without eye cream, and I have dry skin! It also looks fantastic if you pick up a bit of it and mix a smidgeon of eye cream with it before applying with a brush. Even better is mixing it with a pump of the new Luminizing Enhancer Base. If it starts to look a bit dry by the end of the day, it can be revived with a quick dab of eye cream and a light application of a second layer. Powder is optional. Very adaptable. Yes it's expensive, but the tube does last a long time (we're talking over six months of daily use). I used to be a concealer junkie frantically trying everything I could get my manicured paws on, but I have been back on the wagon ever since I discovered this little gem. Get thee to a Cle de Peau counter, pronto!
WOW. I can't tell you how long I debated over whether to buy this product. I needed something that would cover up dark spots/scars, so I could wear a tinted moisturizer. This is the ONLY concealer that will actually cover up everything so you can look like you have no makeup on at all! To give myself some credentials, I've tried Chanel, Lancome, and Sisley. This blows all of those out of the water. It's &70, which really is ridiculous, but you'll love it and it will be the best conclealer you'll ever use. I am fair and ordered "ivory" without trying it. It's a perfect match. continued >>
Okay so this is the most expensive makeup product I own, but IT DOES WHAT IT SAYS! At first I bought this as an under eye concealer and it didn't work out well, however, i started using it on red spots on my skin, and HOLY MOLY- does it work. It is the holy grail- believe the hype- it's that good, but it doesn't cost a ridiculous amount.
To apply I usually rub it onto the back of my hand and use a concealer brush to apply.
Exorbitantly priced, but an excellent product.
It really does cover.
Wish there was a color in-between "fair" and "beige". Too limited a palette.
Come on Cle de Peau! If your'e gonna charge out the ying-yang, provide more color choice!
I love this concealer! It has great coverage and blends very well. I have had the same tube for at least 2 years and it still works as well as the first day. It is very expensive but worth it.
