I am on my second tube and I still have a brand new tube stock up under the counter. Recently I purchased the Estee Lauder foundation kit and it comes with a half size of this concealer. I don't think I need to repurchase for a while.
The product itself is very creamy but kind of thick. I need about a minute to dab it evenly under my eyes. It does cover very well though. This is the only concealer I've tried that will stay on all day. Even though I am not a big fan of the consistency I still keep buying it. I really recommend moisturizing your under eyes with a good eye cream before applying it. Because throughout the day you might find it a bit drying.
When I was close to finish up my first tube the sponge head broke so I ended up throwing it away without using it up completely. Hopefully this time it will last.
I will not repurchase this. It's too drying for my undereye area. Coverage is good but definitely not full. Staying power is not better than my all time favorite (Exuviance). I've applied all kinds of undereye moisturizers and still ended up with accentuated fine lines due to dryness. And for reference, my fine lines are barely visible otherwise. The color I picked was 02 which fits my NC20-25 skin tone pretty well.
I would almost say this is my HG concealer, but that honor belongs to Guerlain's Duo Correcteur (Which is disc... so this might take its place). This is a nice creamy concealer that sets pretty quick and gives good coverage. I use it on my redness, under eyes, and it works well. I think the lasting powder is pretty good and it has a nice matte slight satin finish.
Recently purchased Double Wear concealer by Estee L. because I needed more coverage than my Dr. Hauschka cover stick. What I liked about this product was how long lasting it is, but I expected more coverage after reading the reviews.
I have moderate acne and when it goes, it leaves red marks along my face and jaw line, as well as a few acne scars, so this is what I needed to cover. I usually have to apply 3 times to get adequate coverage and when I do that the color builds up as well, so I get light peachy marks all over my face. I've sampled many shades and the closest that I found was the Extra Light (10). So I am not extremely happy with the color either, but it will work until I find a better one.
I have golden undertone and I am an NC20 in Mac foundation, and 15 in concealer, and I noticed that Estee Lauder doesn't really cater to us, with with warm undertones. Therefore, I'd recommend this brand for people with cool or neutral skin tones.
Same happened when I tried their foundations, even the yellow end of the spectrum turns pinkish when it dries on my face (applied it with a wet sponge). When I talked to the SA, even she admitted that their foundations oxidase and even the warmer tones turn more of a pink, then yellow.
This is my go to concealer. I have repurchased this about 6 times.
I have tried other concealers but find that they don't "stay" This concealer is long wear and lasts all day. If I have dark circles, it will cover them, if I have spots or want something to cover my acne scars, this is what I would reach for. It does its job.
It is a liquid/creamy concealer and can be a little drying. I always make sure I moisturise my skin well.
This is a liquid concealer and has great coverage, while still looking natural. It blends in effortlessly and lasts all day long. I use this on my dark circles (which are pronounced) and it gives me a really softened look under my eyes. That said it's not thick and creamy - so it won't cover your dark circles 100%, but it will soften the overall look of them and make you look healthy.
I have to admit I don't use this very often as the only use I have for it is to conceal dark circles - which I don't get very often anyway. I'm using in 'Light Medium' after foundation and follow with powder to set. It lasts more or less the whole day and does not look unnatural (definately doesn't turn orange as some others have complained- they probably bought the wrong shade!). As I don't use much I can see this will last forevor, which makes the price (£19.00 in the UK) seem more resonable. I will re-purchase when eventually it does run out.
to be honest, i was willing to pay the very high price for this concealer expecting something better than the outcome. i am a huge fan of este lauder products, but for me this was a massive letdown. i find this concealer is extremely light whilst giving full coverage and not sinking into wrinkles under my eyes, where i use it most. it also stays put for the whole day, another great factor. when i first put this on, this was my dream concealer, something i had finally come across after years of fruitless searching. but one day, i came back home from work and looked in the mirror to find that i had two gigantic bright orange circles under my eyes! i looked like a clown! this was ridiculous, i do not ususally put much on and it matched my skin tone perfectly and loooked flawless when i left the house. i then tried to put on a much lighter, high street concealer underneath this before applying to cancel out the orange. this worked for 1 day, but the next day resulted in the bright orange patches again. i have finally worked out a routine which will stop this concealer from turning orange,but it involves a heavy primer, lots of foundation, three other concealers and loose powder. i want to use this bottle up before i switch to another concealer, but i will not be buying again, as in order for it to work, i have to cake myself in make which i would never usually wear unless clubbing, as i do not need it.
This sets fairly quickly. Use a brush instead of your fingers and work fast because this sets. I really wish that there were more shades into the concealers. And you must set the concealer. I suggest Laura Mercier Secret Brightener in #2 if you are tanned skinned like me (NC42). I use shade Medium Deep.
Although my ratings are poor for this product, I have to say it's not that bad at all. I have used this for many years. It lasts very long, covers dark circles nicely and I was very happy with it until I reached 35. I have lots of fine lines now under my eyes and I believe a need a "softer" concealer. I would recommend it to a younger person with dark circles. However, Estee really needs to change the packaging: it's unhygienic and the foam tip tears up soon. So, now I'm in search for a new concealer specific for (lots of) fine lines!!
