This is one of my favorite concealers ever. The coverage is great, the applicator is great! Just awesome!
I liked this except that it dried out my undereye skin for some reason. Even with moisturizer.
This is my HG concealer. I use fair (every day!) and the brightener (less regular basis). This doesn't crease under my eyes and more importantly, it hides my VERY dark circles. I set with bare minerals well rested and don't have to worry about it.
It does waste product with the packaging but I just break mine open and use a beauty spatula to get out the rest. I also tear off the sponge applicator and twist the product directly onto my finger for application.
Tengo el color Medium, y me queda naranjo en la piel, quizás tengo muchas ojeras, pero no me cubre nada, por más capas que ponga, no lo volvería a comprar.
i love this concealer........... i have tried many expensive ones (lancome, mac, bobbi brown, laura mercier, nars.....) and found my way back to this babyyy!!! Although the coverage is not very high and my dark circles are quite severe...........but the texture is so amazingly light that really smooth out my under eye area no matter how many layers i stack on..........i dab it under my eyes in big area and then my laugh lines and on the bridge of my nose and then blend blend blend.........it makes me look so bright and alive......then i use 2 to 3 layers more concentrating on the darkest part of the circles.....this never greases and blends well even on dryer skin days.....and it never causes any problem with my extremely sensitive skin.......i'm NC 30 and i use light........highly recommended....!!!
I had initially resisted buying this product due to the silly sponge applicator, but eventually gave in because more than five beauty gurus recommended it. It's a great product, I apply it using the sponge applicator, distribute it evenly using a concealer brush, and blend it in using a beauty blender. One if the only products that irradiates the annoying shadow in the corner of my eye.
When I first saw these, I thought the packaging was gimmicky and obviously the product had to be terrible if Maybelline was resorting to such hokey packaging and marketing for this product. And when I tried these, I found out I was right in regards to the actual applicator. While the concept itself actually worked decently for a while, the plastic ring used to twist the product up cracked soon after purchase and made it impossible for me to get the concealer out. I ended up depotting it, which in and of itself was a very messy process, but it was still worth it not to deal with the stupid and rather unhygienic sponge/twist apparatus.
I was wrong though about the concealer, this stuff is exceptional for a drugstore brand. High coverage concealers at this price point can be really chalky and dry, but I found the lightest shade of this concealer applies nicely, doesn't get chalky, and covers well. I wouldn't use this color on anywhere else but my under eyes as I have yellow undertones, but the salmon undertone here works well to counteract the blue-purple of my under eyes. I actually look forward to putting this on in the morning because it's rich texture is really soothing! I hope Maybelline improves the packaging this product comes in because the formula here is excellent and has a lot of potential.
I have tried so many products to help conceal my under eye circles and I never thought about using a "brightener" instead of a shade that matched my skin tone. I personally love this and a single tube has lasted me quite a white now. I can't even remember when I bought it to be honest! It's super easy to apply and I personally apply it over foundation. The brightener shade blends perfectly into my foundation and covers every bit of my under eye darkness. It's natural looking and reflects light well. I also have tan skin and the pink undertones of this can look like I didn't match my concealer to my face if I don't blend properly but that's not hard to do. Doesn't settle or collect into lines under my eyes. I would definitely recommend this to people who haven't considered a brightener/highlighter for concealing dark circles.
I don't think I've ever had so many complements on my eyes in a single day until I bought this. I decided on the illuminator/brightener "shade" since my under eyes aren't terribly dark and just tend to have a stubborn blue vein that needs something with a bit of power to disappear. Im definitely impressed with the formula. Unlike some, I didn't experience any settling causing noticeable creases, but I think that could be from applying too much product. The applicator is fun and different than anything I've ever tried. I will definitely be buying this again before I run out.
Overall this product is a okay product. It has a spongey applicator in a twist tube which I really like because it doesn't get messy. Coverage is probably a light to medium coverage depending how much of the product you apply. I would put this on under my eyes to cover the dark circles before I start my foundation. I tend to put another concealer on top for added coverage. I wouldn't recommend to use this as your ONLY under eye concealer cause the circles tend to appear. It's around $6 or $7 to buy so its worth the try if you debating about it :)
