I have very dark circles and have medium-tan skin (a little lighter than NC140). I bought this concealer in Ocher (after much raving from Kim Kardashian) and, after using it today for the first time, have had people tell me that I look "different" and "more awake" and "more fresh". This is highly pigmented and goes on very well to skin; smooth finish. This got a 4 because of the price and the amount of product in the tube. Very expensive! and it doesn't seem as though there is much product in the whole tube! I am just hoping that it lasts a while because, so far, this is an excellent product.
HG! HG! This is by far the best concealer I have ever used. It lasts all day even on my very oily skin in my humid, over 100 degree climate.
I do have a little creasing about 5 minutes after I put it on, but other than that this product is perfect. It covers my dark circles without settling into fine lines and really makes my eyes pop!
UPDATE: I switched to a lighter moisturizer (NeoCutis' Journee) and no more creasing! It's been 6 months since I purchased this and I still have half a tube remaining with daily use and I am still in love with this product.
oh lorday lordayyy
sooooo expensive i reluctantly handed over my credit card to the sales lady. but it was so worth it. this concealer does everything, i think its my HG. i have one deep wrinkle on my undereye and all the other concealers in the past have gone into that wrinkle which was a dead giveaway that i was wearing concealer. but nope this one covered it and stayed put. absolutely WONDERFUL. not drying but not too runny. perfect creamy formula. but i dont really have dark undereye circles so i dont know if i could say much for that aspect.
packaging is simple but elegant, very lightly scented i can barely smell it. highest quality makeup for sure. u get what u pay for and with this concealer u get a whole lot.
What can I say? This product is very deserving of all the hype it gets. Conceals perfectly, blends beautifully, stays all day! I have a medium olive skin tone and use Ocher and it is an exact match for me. I used to be one of those gals that wouldn't go to work without foundation on but ever since I got this concealer I've just been touching up my blemishes and red areas with it and doing a light dusting of powder and that's it! I've triend Laura Mercier and found it too dry. I've tried LaMer concealer and found that it had staying power but none of the colors were an exact match for me. My best beauty purchase this year!
Saying that this is not a good product would be a complete lie. However, for the price I expected something better! Something hg status, and beyond great, not this. The finish is indeed natural..too natural to cover anything slightly dark. It is great for the eyes if you do not have dark circles as it brightens up and leaves a nice finish.
It is comparable to my revlon stick foundation which costs a fraction of the price. for dark circles nothing I found beats bobbi brown corrector as it is quite thick and this is relatively dewy. Also cdp did crease a tiny bit although to be fair, the creasing was minimal.
For those who own it I would recommend using a small concealer brush to avoid wasting it. Do not apply it directly to the face - it literally melts away. If this was cheaper I would buy again and use it on top of a corrector to smooth it out or alone on the non-dark-circle days.
I decided to splurge on this concealer based on all the positive reviews and raves I keep hearing about it. I have hereditary circles that I can never cover with anything. I've tried just about everything out there from magic eye creams to concealers and nothing has ever worked. I decided to take the dive and see if maybe this could work for me. It does an average job of masking my circles. They are so dark that unfortunately, they are still very visible despite this concealer but it does make them seem slightly less severe. However, I didn't find coverage to be any better than any other decent concealer (like Benefits Erase Paste or Bobbi Brown). The coverage definitely didn't justify the price. It works no better than cheaper concealers in my opinion.
Even if the coverage had been amazing, I still would not have liked this product because it settles into fine lines horribly! I'm in my 20's so I don't have any major lines and wrinkles but I do once I put this concealer on! It makes my eyes age about 20 years. The first day I wore this out, I happened to glance in the mirror and was horrified by all the lines! I started freaking out and thinking that maybe I had aged overnight and not realized it. Like another user mentioned, I tried applying this concealer every possible way I could think of- with eye primer, without primer, with a brush, with my finger while gently patting, setting with powder, not using powder, using lots of eye cream, using a little eye cream, etc. NOTHING worked! It just gathers in the tiny lines and amplifies them like crazy. It refuses to stay where I put it no matter what I do! Another reviewer also mentioned that it needs constant retouching- this is very true. Even after just an hour, it looks nothing like it did when you first applied it.
I really was looking forward to loving this product. It seemed to work for so many people that I was convinced that it could be my HG circle eraser too. Unfortunately, all it did was age me a couple of decades. I honestly would not even like this concealer if it had been $10 as apposed to the $70-something I paid. Why would I want to pay to look older and worn out?
Some other reviewers mentioned that the company recently changed the formula and not for the better. Generally, MA reviews are right on point so I was thinking that maybe all the people who had positive experiences with this concealer had the older version because I really can't see how anyone can like the one I got.
Yes, this is very expensive but it's worth every penny! Most amazing concealer I've ever used. It covers circles and blemishes easily, and it really lasts! It's not cakey or dry, nor is it greasy. I'm highly impressed!!!
Got this off Ebay after reading all the positive reviews. I also have Laura Mercier and La Mer. I tried it at the counter at Saks first. Color Beige matches perfectly for the summer. I don't have bad under eye circles , but do have some hyperpigmentation that makes me self conscious. I find I just dab a bit on and I can go without any makeup. Doesn't feel greasy or cakey at all. No creases and it blends in well with my skin. Highly recommend. Blows LM out of the water as far as coverage. La Mer is also good, but I think the color I have is a tad too light.
