Why are drugstore brands coming out with these crazy containers. I thought mine was defective at first because I had to continue to turn the arrow thing over and over and over to get any of it onto.....the SPONGE applicator, don't you know. Ok then, I will admit that applied with the actual sponge, in the right amount,,,,and that gets tricky because there either seems to either be too little or too much.....it's actually a pretty good product! It did not settle into lines or dry my under eyes. The problem for me was limited color choice. I got the medium one for nc-25 and it was too light on me, giving the reverse raccoon effect. If you are a super fair type, this might be worth checking out.
This concealer didn't live up to my expectations. After hearing such great things, I was eager to try it. However, I feel like it didn't do anything I wanted.
It is quite thick/creamy and it feels very oily on my skin. It settles into fine lines and when I use it on my blemishes, it really settles in the cracks and makes it look worse. The coverage is not so great in my opinion, because as I try to pat down the product, all the dark marks just show up again. It makes my face feel quite heavy, without really providing me with the coverage I want. The color range is pretty limited, and I feel like I'm in between colors. I'm not much of a fan of the sponge applicator either; I feel it's not very sanitary.
I wouldn't repurchase this, it does not live up to the hype for me :(
I really enjoy this concealer. It would have to be my favourite drugstore concealer.
It does a great job of brightening and concealing my under eye area where i have to most problems. It is not 100% coverage but it does about an 85% coverage in my opinion so definitely worth the money compared with high end concealers which don't even achieve that.
The major plus is the coverage and the price.
The cons would have to be the shade limitations and packaging.
The first one I had broke about 2/3's of the way through and if not for the concealer itself i wouldn't have bothered trying again. You just need to take a lot of care when handling it and so far I haven't had another one break. The sponge applicator is also useless.
With the shades here in Australia the darkest is medium and as a tan Caucasian while it looks fine in person it often too light in photos which isn't the look I am going for.
Overall I will happily repurchase this until I find something which is perfect.
Overall rating would have been a 2 1/2 if I could have because, for the price, this works fine. Certainly not the best concealer in the world, but it does the trick in a pinch. My big buggaboo with this product is the packaging. I've purchased both the brightner and eraser, and both of the tubes BROKE before I could even get half way through them! They just stopped twisting up. Now I have to yank off the sponge part and smear it on my face, which is messy, to say the very least. I won't be purchasing again, due to the faulty packaging.
If you're dark skin and dark eye circles this is not the product for you. I have dark skin and kinda dark circles under my eyes and it just did not do me justice. It was to brightening and when I did flash photography it just left me a white cast.
I am writing about the Instant Age Rewind Eraser "Brightener". It's a pale pink and when used under concealer made my dark circles disappear WITHOUT bringing out the fine lines under my eyes. The key for me is using a moisturizer, using the dark circle Brightener, and then foundation. Unlike other concealers, I find this one to be smooth and not sit in any fine lines. I am also in love with the applicator (it's a soft "puff"). Are there better products out there? Maybe...but for $8 this one is pretty good.
Did not cover dark circles or red spots worth a darn. Very watery, you would be better off just using foundation! Nice packaging and applicator, and no funny smell. Would not buy again!
I bought this in Honey. I thought it's supposed to be the darkest shade.
But it's still way too light for me. I tried using it for my undereye, and the result is disappointing. The white cast is obvious, and people are commenting that i look like i haven't had enough sleep :(
I like the packaging tho, a good alternative to doe foot applicator.
I bought this in hopes to use it as a corrector under my concealer. It was way too light for my liking. I got the wrong shade so next time I repurchase I will definitely get another shade. My eye circles were almost emphasized which was no good!
I can't wait to try in a darker shade.
Kinda meh product to be honest :/ I have super dark circles and I heard that it was good for even severe circles so I tried it out. However I was under whelmed, as it just made my circles look ashy... :( good packaging tho.
