Great for undereye circles. I have moderate undereye bags no matter how much sleep I get and I need a heavy duty salmon colored concealer to cover them up. Blends easily with my finger. I set with powder and dont notice creasing unless I use too much. I took off a lippie for the price. This is not how much I usually want to pay for a concealer. I was so afraid it wouldnt be any better than drugstore undereye concealers I have tried but it is better...but still too expensive.
I don't like this concealer for covering acne blemishes, but I think it works great for under eye circles. It's really creamy and extremely blendable. Sometimes I'll apply just this under my eyes and work it down to my cheek area if I'm just running out the door. Works wonders for me.
I got this in a trial size set for $10, It's hard to blend and looks very cakey. I have tried to set a powder on top of it, and the cakiness looks worse, maybe i'm not applying it properly, but I use my fingers and I have to be very careful and very light handed or else it rubs off and looks blotchy. Overall, I will not be buying the full size and for $26, I don't even think it's worth it.
Stilling looking for my HG concealer, this concealer unfortunately is not it.
I got this product (mini size) in a cheap-o set from Sephora. The only color choice you could get was Medium, so I figured I'd never use it and swap it immediately (I have light skin). But for some reason, I decided to give it a shot.
WOW. The salmony color of this just brightens my undereye area like nothing else. Even though the color looks kinda dark in the pan, it comes off way lighter on my skin. You know how if you use an undereye concealer that's just a tad lighter than your skintone, it can look ashy? Well, this gives you a bright/lightened effect without that weird ashiness going on. It's awesome.
Coverage is fine for me, though I don't have severe dark circles. The texture of this product is the only thing that is really lacking - it's pretty true to it's name - paste-y. Now, too runny of a concealer and you'll get creasing under the eye, but too thick of a concealer and it can look cakey after setting with powder. This leans on the thick side. HOWEVER - if you use a face primer, it won't be an issue. I always use primer first (Hard Candy Sheer Envy), and Erase Paste glides on like a dream, and stays put longer. So if you're having trouble with the texture, try that.
The price is a high for my budget, but it lasts a long time (I use it every day and I'm still not even halfway through my mini-pot). If you can get it in a swap or get it in a set, I really recommend you go for it. It's surprisingly good. continued >>
This is so highly raved about and I can't figure out why. I feel like it's sticky and hard to blend.
This concealer works great to camouflage, minimize, and brighten areas of discoloration on my forehead caused by melasma. I use the medium color, which has melon colored undertones and appears lighter than my natural skintone. Something about this color hides brown spots very well and blends to look natural against my medium, warm toned, light olive skin. It doesn't completely mask the spots of melasma, but it does a better job than most other concealers I have tried. Other skin imperfections, like old acne marks are also well concealed with this product. It has a thick, creamy consistency, which is easy to blend. The coverage is medium to full and long lasting. I also use this sometimes for under eye circles, but have found that it requires blending with other products to effectively conceal my under eye discoloration.
I can't believe this has such great reviews.
The shade selection isn't what I have a problem with. The Fair shade works okay with my skin tone. The problem I have is that I have pretty dark, bruiselike hereditary circles under my eyes, and this works worse than any other concealer I've ever used. It doesn't cover them whatsoever, and even if I set this concealer with powder, it settles into a small crease under my eyes and looks disgusting.
It's cakey, it's oily and doesn't set well, and it doesn't work.
I'm so sorry that I bought this instead of repurchasing Boi-ing concealer. That stuff worked soo much better than this.
I have no idea what compelled me to spend $26 for a lip balm pot's worth of under eye concealer, but I did, almost sociopathically, and I don't regret it entirely.
I had been using Cover Girl's Simply Ageless Corrector but the thing is yellow. Pure sickly ashy yellow. I also have Laura Mercier's Secret Camouflage, but that product is...drier than a popcorn fart, for lack of a more elegant descriptor.
I walked into Sephora panicked, basically after searching for concealer reviews and watching countless videos I learned two things 1) My allergies and thin under eye skin are going to make concealing dark circles impossible 2) I need a salmon color, not skin color or yellow.
The clerk rushed me to Laura Mercier's concealer (I didn't catch the name) and also mumbled something about Benefit, Clinique, and Sephora brand. I was was mushing the Mercier product between my fingers with this demented look on my face, the consistency was so creamy and it was salmon! Oh, salmon! They all say use salmon! I was ready to just rush up to the counter waving my money but I decided to scope a bit more.
The Sephora brand was a kit, and the concealer was...like...baked chalk and silly putty petrified in a tub? NEXT
The Clinique All About Eyes looked like just another runny squeeze tube of oddly colored paste. NEXT
The Benefit looked and felt like the Mercier, I dabbed it on, ok...worked...the price, ok...once the med crew took the paddles off and lifted me off the floor I decided to compare it to the Mercier, and for 4 dollars more you get twice the product. OK, let's do it.
This stuff is nice, it is thick (very) and creamy (very) and tacky as well. Really grabs on, can be covered with a powder to set. My dark circles are very very bad, and I do look nicer and brighter in this than I ever have. The darkness is not completely gone, however.
I hope this lasts me a long time, I only use a teeny dab with my fingers. This is not for a brush, too thick. I would be open to trying other kinds, but I like this consistency. Maybe the Bobbi Brown is in my future.
EDIT: I watched a QVC video on this product, and the mua used a brush. I said, what the hey, and tried. It is nicer with a brush, disregard my initial impression. I had been putting it over my foundation with my ring finger at the suggestion of a youtube mua, but I have gone to putting it on with a brush and not using foundation on that area at all, just powder. It still looks blended but covers best for me this way.
I really am sad that this product doesn't work for me. After hearing such great reviews, I had high hopes for this stuff! I don't mind the consistency, I actually quite like it. It's nice and thick, but not hard to blend either. The thing is, it doesn't cover my circles whatsoever! To be fair, I do have pretty dark circles but this doesn't do ANYTHING. Even if I try to build up the layers, I can still see the purple circles underneath. But, I don't want to build up too many layers and risk looking like a cake-face. The only thing it does do is brighten up the area, but in an almost a too-bright, unnatural type of way. I mean, I still use it because it was 26 freakin' bucks but :/ Big disappointment for me!
This was one of the most horrible concealers I have ever used. First of all, it only comes in three shades. I have a medium oilive complexion so I tried medium and it was a pinkish orange. Like, bright barbie doll orange. I don't know who has this skintone. especially medium skinned girls who are usually olive. That right there made it impossible to use, but aside ftom that, the quality was horrendous. It covered nothing but still looked like you were obviously wearing makeup. It had the weirdest consistency so that it never dried, it just sat like this crazy orange smudge on my face. And it lasted for all of five minutes, but that's kind of good because I hated it. I really don't know who this could possibly work for..
