This is NOT good if you have very dark circles, it will make them look
greyish, also this creased so, so bad....I took it back to the store
- I have dark circles under my eyes (I'm in college and don't sleep). This does a pretty nice job of taming the darkness a bit.
- It's peachy and not yellowish like most concealers. Yellowish concealer just makes the dark circles seem darker and it's not pretty.
- This is that it's so thick and sticky that whether I'm using my finger or a brush, I always wind up tugging on the thin skin under my eye when I'm blending it in which isn't very comfortable.
- It doesn't do anything to tame under eye puffiness.
I have severe genetic dark circles. This does nothing on it's own for me. I use this as a finishing touch after concealers and foundation. I just dot it right on the black circles and in between those dots i use my reg. concealer and pat them down together with a concealer brush. It helps a little I guess lol. I can only use it last and only on the circle itself because it has a caking problem. I initially bought to use before everything as a corrector but that's not happening! If I was a regular human who felt tired one day I guess I'd like this. For anyone in the same boat as me I'd stick with joe blasco dermaceal blue-away for a corrector.
I got this concealer with the "Confessions of a Concealaholic" set by Benefit. I was disappointed to find out that the default shade for the set is 'medium - 02' and my skin is fair. Regardless I tried out the product and found that it wasn't too dark or orange-y, though 'light - 01' would be best.
It really brightens up my under-eye area (I have moderate dark circles) and conceals well though it did tend to settle in some fine liens and cake up- but I realized that the brush that came in the set is what was causing it. When I switched to my fingers and swiped it under my eyes it worked great. I am pretty annoyed that the jar is so tiny- its kind of hard to get my finger in it (even though I have long skinny piano fingers) and if you have long nails be prepared to get it under them!
Overall its a great product that I think will last me a long time, I just wish I had switched out the medium for light at Sephora!
I'm not sure what shade I have (came as part of the confessions of a concealaholic set - and is the only product I use from that set!) but it matches my skintone perfectly. I use erase paste for covering up dark circles & pimples & it works great. It can crease a little in the under eye area; I apply first with a concealer brush then lightly sweep a foundation brush on top to even out the application, it seems to work very well. Will definitely repurchase when I run out.
love it love it love it. have it in #02 med and i could not be without it. it makes me look fresh, young, awake, alive, glowy - all the good stuff. some people say it is 'cakey' but i think its just the waxy creamy consistency of it but I sweep my eye area with a kabuki brush before i leave the house and it seems to stop any creasing or gathering in fine lines & im pretty sure no one would realise im wearing make up!
I have this in medium. For me, this concealer works really well. It is really buildable, natural, yet opaque on well moisturized skin. I can see how this concealer wouldn't work for everyone. It has a pink undertone that adds a brightening effect on my olive skin. It is really thick, so a light hand is needed. When I want my concealer to be thinner and have more of a yellow/beige undertone, I reach for my Stila concealer.
The consistency of this concealer is very creamy and gel like. I apply it with my fingers and use a very small amount. It covers the undereye area pretty well, but unfortunately I'm not a fan because it settles into fine lines and has a tendency to look cakey.
I have super dark hereditary dark circles and this product works wonders for me. I not only had trouble COVERING my dark circles, but most products crease and cake like crazy on me!
This product is super creamy and moist and stays put all day! I've used it alone or under MUFE full cover concealer there's really not too much of a difference, it works really well on its own. My dark circles are blue-ish tones, with redish-purple tones as well, and the peachy tone of this product cover most of it up!
I admit that it doesn't cover up my dark circles 100%, but honestly, nothing will do that. I'm so happy with this product!
I set it with Benefit Powderflage.
Love this concealer. Does exactly what its supposed to do, but I do find that it creases after some time. Will repurchase for sure though! :)
