So I have this running joke with myself that the first time people see me without makeup they tell me I look tired, due to my dark, cavernous undereye region. But I hardly ever wear makeup to work in the morning because...it's in the morning, so people there are used to seeing me bare-faced. But then one day after I bought this I stole to the bathroom and dabbed it under my eyes, hoping it'd make me look more awake. Immediately after I returned to the office, somebody informed me, "You look tired." That's...probably a bad sign.
On the other hand, it covers up blemishes pretty well (at least, I think it does), but doesn't seem to last very long. OK, I'll get back to you on this stuff, because I spent like twenty dollars on it and don't want to feel like a chump.
wow - this stuff really helped this morning ... i had big circles under my eyes ... so i was very happy when i put this on. It settled a tiny bit into some of my creases under my eyes but thats ok ...
very cool indeed ... hopefully it will become my HG!
btw - i am a NC30 and i bought shade d.
I am really impressed with this concealer. It gives great buildable coverage for circles & blemishes. I have oily skin and this stays put all day! I'm a 40watt and use shade D.
OK, let me tell you from the start that this is a partial review. I'm always on the lookout for a new concealer, and after reading about this one, I decided to check it out. It sounded good--creamy (for my dry undereye area) with good coverage (for my dark circles). When in Sephora, I squeezed a bit onto my (unmoisturized) hand, patted it out, noted that it has quite a bit of light-reflecting properties, thought it felt good and covered well and that I would buy it. I also wanted to get the new Fluid Highlighter #3 and had to rummage in the drawers a bit to find it. By the time I did (about 3 minutes), I noticed that the concealer had separated and practically disappeared from my hand, leaving only a bit of shine! I was very disappointed, to say the least, but glad I hadn't purchased it. So try this before you buy, or be sure you can return it, especially oily-skinned girls.
This covers pretty good, and brightens my dark circles, but it did crease a little about halfway through the day. Other than that, the texture is nice and it is a good match (i chose shade C). I'm a warm LLL.
I like this concealer very much. My skin is combo and I needed a concealer for blemishes, imperfections, and under eye darkness. Even though I use eye cream daily, I had problems with heavier concealers settling into the fine lines around my eye and making them looks worse! This concealer, does just an OK job under my eyes. It looks great in the AM, but by mid afternoon, it has settled into my tiny creases, no matter what AM eye moisturizer I use. I am beginning to think it is me.
It works great for concealing everything else. Use a dabbing technique for blemishes and set with powder. It will last all day and not clog pores. It will seem as though the price is high for a small tube, but it is not. You need such a tiny amount that I cannot imagine when I will need to buy more of this product. I also highly recommend the Stila concealer brush (#11). The proper brush to apply makes all the difference in the world! I can make my face look flawless with this concealer!
I purchased the entire perfecting line and this was the only disappointment in it all. Although, at first glance it looks as if it would work because it looks more opaque, etc. It is shiny and really stands out. It seems to disappear as the day wears on (in my case, it looked so obvious and shiny and disappeared only moments later). I was sadly disappointed and am going to return it.
