I bought this product and returned it the very next day. The coverage is good when I first apply it, and it matched my skin very well even though it only comes in 3 shades. However, after a few hours it started to streak and fade. I was very disappointed. Don't let the good coverage and blending fool you - after a few hours it's as if you didn't even apply any in the first place. I returned it the very next day and will never buy it again.
Well I have to disagree with othersa here as I love this to bits and find it so much better than touche eclat. It can be a little heavy sometimes but I find that is only if I se too much at once
BAD for fine lines and wrinkles!!
It will fool you, too, b/c you'll look great after putting it on and going out the door but then when you check up on it later, you'll find it's actually bringing attention to crow's feet, looking cakey, and not at all masking redness.
I bought this in Fair (although I am a medium in most Clinique products - NC40) to use under my eyes to conceal dark circles. While the color was good, the formula was not so great - it was chalky and hard to blend in, and settled into all the little fine lines around my eyes. And I'm 24! I wasn't even aware that I had fine lines. I swear this stuff created them. I ended up returning this. I wish the formula had been better, as the packaging is great and this stuff is cheaper than most illuminating-pen concealers out there.
I was told by the SA that this came in only one shade which is a yellowish tone,and supposedly good for tawny skintone like mine.Big mistake! It looks so disastrous and very obvious when i applied it to cover my undereye circles.I was disappointed with this concealer which claims to give an airbrush look.It was left in my bag for a long time and i just threw it just now.Definitely won't be making a second purchase.
I bought this last spring because I ran out of my usual and my neighbour swears by this product. Given that she is considerably younger and less wrinkly I should have known better but I thought I'd try it out. I've probably bought every concealer ever made at one time or another and none of them live up to their promises. This one is rubbish on its own BUT! I've started to mix it with another misguided purchase, Olay Regenerist Eye Lifting Serum, and whaddayaknow? it looks absolutley fine. The gold sparkly bits that I loathe in the serum blends in with the iridescence of the concealer plus the extra emollientcy that the serum gives it works well and it doesn't ( I repeat) doesn't lay in the creases. It brightens up the eye area without looking made up...and thats all I really want out of a concealer.
I bought this concealer when I unexpextedly ran out of my undereye concealer, and couldn't get hold of any of my preferred choices. Well, what can I say? It will never be a favourite of mine, for several reasons. First, I really can't stand the plasticky smell of it, second, it seems to dry out my undereye area, and third, I don't care for the cheap, green Clinique design. The quest for the perfect non-drying undereye concealer will go on, but both YSL, Elizabeth Arden, Face Stockholm etc are better than this one.
It's produces a very natural finish, almost disappears into skin. Covers pimples fairly well, but not completely. Could do better at covering the redness around my nose. I mostly use it on and around my nose and chin to cover blackheads, redness and teh occassional pimple/acne.
But when applied under the eyes, accentuates my fine lines. Also, looks shiny after having it on for awhile.
Doesn't work well when my skin is dry, and definitely not when it's flaky (due to irritation).
I'm ok with the packaging. Some complain about how unhygeinic a built-in applicator brush can be, but you can opt to use a cotton bud to apply the product onto the blemish first then blend with fingers (learned this from iVillage). I think this method works pretty well with pimples etc - more accurate application. But the brush comes in handy for undereyes.
If you have yellow undertones in your skin, this concealer is better than YSL touche eclat, much more natural. It has the same kind of consistency and pen packaging, but is cheaper. It also lasts for ages.Try it!
This is clearly cheaper that the YSL touche eclat but don't get your hopes up. The product after daily use for a month ran out. I'm not buying a new one at that price every month! The packaging looks nice to begin with, but once used the liquid leaks and it ends up looking cheap and tacky. It was okay for concealing my under-eye circles, but it faded after time. Try YSL!
