Before finding this corrector, I was almost at my wit's end trying to find a way to hide or treat my purple-ish under-eye circles. I did a Google search for the best drugstore under-eye concealers, found this, and I have now been using it for about two weeks. When used on top of my cream eye moisturizer, I can apply it without it caking up on my dry, crepey skin, and it does not settle into fine lines. A little bit goes a long way! I then follow up with a tiny bit of Neutrogena's 3-in-1 under eye concealer. However, I have noticed that it does not stay on smooth for as long as I'd like, and it needs touching up after more than 5-6 hours, but that might be partly due to my dry, slightly bumpy skin under my eyes. But overall, this is the best product I have used to help with my under-eye circles. I highly recommend it.
So originally I was going to give this a bad review as well. Iíve been looking for a good concealer that acts more of a highlighter than a concealer but havenít been able to find anything that doesnít accentuate my dry spots around my cheek area. So far, everything has pretty much failed for winter. When I picked this up I was really disappointed, I kept trying to apply it with my Real Techniques buffing brush and it would just look worse. I then tried dabbing and rubbing it on with my fingers and it still failed. I tried a different primer and again, didnít make it look any better.
I then saw a YouTube tutorial of someone using the same concealer but dipped her damp beauty blender into the pot and bounced the beauty blender (pointed tip toward under eye) and used it as a concealer/highlighter. It looks amazing. I completely forget about my beauty blender sometimes and wow does it make a difference when using this concealer. Itís the perfect combination and blends effortlessly when using the damp beauty blender. So if youíve used this too, try a beauty blender before giving up!
I read about this product on a blog so I wanted to try it out. My bags are super dark so I definitely need to use a corrector before applying any concealer for my under eyes. I'm currently using bobbi brown "light peach" but the crappy thing with different shades is that I'm lighter compared to when I first bought it, so it doesn't work as well now. This covergirl corrector is a bit light but it gives an awesome highlight for my undereyes. (Think Kim k but not super crazy light like hers). I always apply eye cream before this product because it can be a bit drying. It is very creamy so A little goes a Long way; too much product can make it look Cakey. I apply and blend out with my fingers, then apply my mac select cover up concealer and then set with make up for ever's hd powder. Def would repurchase this product!
I can only use this in the summer when my skin has a bit more moisture in it. It has a light, pleasant texture that's not too thick or pasty like some undereye concealers. When my skin is drier and in winter, though, I have a lot of trouble applying the concealer and avoiding creasing/flaking. I have to use a lot of moisturizer to ease application. Other than that, it is a great product and it has totally replaced the much more expensive Laura Mercier concealer I used to use.
I love this thing! I have pretty dark under eye circles and this stuff is the best stuff for it so far that I have used! It is a tad pricey but really its okay, you get a ton of product and you don't need a lot to cover your dark circles. I seriously think I found my holy grail Dark circle concealer. I'd gladly pay the price tag again for something that actually works. <3
This is WAY OVERRATED. I have oily combination skin especially in terms of my tzone. (For reference: MAC NC44) This did absolutely nothing. I'm 22 and do not have lines under my eyes but this somehow created the effect of lines under my eyes. It gathered in nonexistent wrinkles under my eyes. Not only did it not brighten, but it just created an awkward grey/yellow sheer tint under my eyes. OVERPRICED for a drugstore product & NOT WORTH IT.
Overall I love this product! It's creamy and great to put under your eyes. I recommend anyone who has dark circles and bags to get this concealer! I myself don't have major dark circles or bags but this works great to brighten my under eye area.
So dissapointed with this. Was dying to try it since I found out they used it for a Christian Dior runway show. Settled into my fine lines, made my skin look greenish, way to thick to look natural.
Not a bad Concealer, goes on nicely and does a pretty good job of concealing.
I love this product! I've suffered from undereye circles since I became a teen, even though I drink and eat all the right things and get enough sleep. I guess I'm just prone to them. Concealer is the one thing I always wear - I will not go out of the house without it on. I love my concealer (ZA concealer perfection), but if I layer it it tends to crease and look a little caky. That's why I bought this corrector. And oh my, it is amazing. It really neutralizes the purple/red under my eyes, and provides an amazing base for my concealer. I've hardly noticed any creasing, and it stays on well. If I completely conceal the darkness with the corrector it comes off a bit too yellow, so I just neutralize with it, and then apply concealer over the top.
It's a very creamy consistency, and slides onto the skin without pulling or tugging. I prefer using my finger instead of a brush, as it melts it into the skin better.
I've used it to conceal redness around my nose and on my chin, and it covers it beautifully, but I've stopped doing that as I think it was causing me to break out. But under the eyes that's not a problem at all.
