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.
I love this corrector! The consistency is thin but it covers very well. It does not settle into fine lines and does a great job concealing dark purple circles. I will repurchase if I ever run out!
Me, having very dry skin, found that the quality of this product change over time....
Summer: My skin is a little oily, and this concealer glides on like butter onto dry skin, not making anything flaky or caked on looking,
Winter: As always, people with dry skin get even drier skin in the Winter, And this is most likely one of the worst concealers people who suffer from dry flaky skin in the winter....It looks caked on, If applied in a rubbing motion rather than a fast patting motion, it lifts up flakes of the skin no matter how much you exfoliated and moisturized prior to application.....
BUT: this also might have to do with the consistency of my product, Im not sure, because i dont have a New one, to compare to the one I already have, But im most definitly sure that this concealer dryed a bit, and is now a tackey consistency...
Application: This is a good concealer to apply with a brush...It appears extremely streaky and cakes to the bristles of the brush..applying it with fingers adds heat and melts it down, giving a smooth applicaton,
as for applying it to a friend or customer, Use a cosmetic sponge, And dont WET the cosmetic sponge, the water and the oil in the product, do not mix! and make it feel like your wearing a film on ur skin....I would suggest taking a bit out, and mixing it with either a small bit of moisturizer, or mixing medium, and REALLY mixing it well.
packaging: Its great for the first couple of weeks of usage...But once it starts to get a Dip in the middle, it gets extremely difficult to handle the product, especially if you have nails...
As for makeup artist use: Its really unsanitary....You will need a pallete and mixing spatula to handle this product.
Hope this helped! ~ Pinkudoku
