This product is WAY overpriced. I am a Chanel girl & I would repurchase all of their stuff I have tried so far - except for this. Don't get me wrong, it isn't a bad product (hence I'm giving it 3 lippies), but it isn't anything special either and it certainly does not justify the hefty price tag.
I'd say the coverage of this is light to medium. It isn't enough to cover my dark circles. If you have 'light' dark circles then this might work, but if you have just plain dark circles then this won't cut it. For redness in the face it is okay.
I do like the consistency. It doesn't cake or settle into lines and it looks natural.
The packaging is pretty, but a downside to it is that you can't tell how much is left.
The price is ridiculous, especially considering that the amount of product you get is miniscule.
The bottom line is that this is a nice product, but I can get something to do exactly the same for less than a third of the price. I like the bourjois brush concealer just as much and I like my Gosh concealer even better.
Will not repurchase.
This is a great concealer. Its a bit thin, but it covers well and makes me look flawless! My fav I've ever tried!!!
I gave it a "2" because I am outraged at how little time it lasted! I used it sparingly and the result were ok but I just can't get over that the pen ran out so fast and there was no warning either.
I feel like I should state that I love, love, love Chanel and have amassed a huge collection over the years - this is the first time I have ever given a low rating to one of their products.
I just can't justfy the price for the longevity of the pen.
PROS: Very good at subtle illumination. Wonderful, super-light texture, but buildable. Great as a highlighter. I am a N10-15 (leaning toward NC) & I needed the "2". (The "1" was just a bit too light.)
CONS: Might not be enough for those with very dark circles. May be drying on dry eyes/wrinkles.
ALTERNATES: HE alternate, YSL Touche Eclat (although I prefer the Chanel.) For a bit of subtle shimmer, Laura Mercier's Secret Brightener.
REMOVAL TIPS: If using this for more than the eyes and If using this for more than the eyes and you are prone to clogging, you may want to remove this with a cleansing oil before using your regular cleanser. continued >>
I've been using this product for about a month. Hands down, it is the best concealer I've ever tried.
I've been through Bobbi Brown, Laura Mercier, and Stila, to name a few. What sets this concealer apart from all of the others I've tried is that it provides outstanding coverage without looking heavy and it doesn't settle into the fine lines under my eyes. It matches my skin tone perfectly (I use the lightest shade) and is incredibly easy to blend. It lasts all day.
I have minor dark circles under my eyes and some degree of puffiness. If you have darker circles, you may want something a bit more substantial, but I would still stop by the Chanel counter to see if this works.
There are two drawbacks to this product, one of which is rather substantial. First, it's impossible to tell if you're running out of product; it comes in a black tube and there's really no warning when you're running low.
Second, I'm reading other reviews which state that this product ran out after THREE OR FOUR WEEKS. Which may explain why I was having trouble getting enough out of the tube this morning. $40/tube is a fair price, but for a product that's going to last three months at the very least. I can't justify adding $40 to my monthly budget for "concealer expense," however heavenly this is, so sadly, I'm still on my quest for the perfect concealer...sigh.
I use this concealer on my bare skin and it works miracles! I use the lightest shade; what I like the most about it, is that looks so natural - it looks as I'm not wearing any concealer at all.
Very good coverage (unlike skinflash by Dior), it melts into my skin. It is very natural and it is easy to retouch during the day. The colour is very credible (not too yellow) and helps reducing dark shades. I replaced the Bobbi Brown concealer, which after a while looked far too heavy. I am very happy with the resullts this product delivers. It does not cake and it does not create that awful "white" effect I expereinced with YSL.
Truly the best concealer/highlighter created by Man. I bought Rose Beige, and under my eyes, it's a miracle worker. (Deep breath and moment of silence) I will go so far as to call it an HG -- the only thing I've ever called that, btw. It's also wonderful to highlight around your lips a bit if you want your lip color to look super vibrant. I don't know how long it will last yet. Based on what everyone is saying here, I'm going sparingly and saving it for when I truly want to look dewily gorgeous. As for the color, thought the name doesn't really sound it, Rose Beige is a light color, and great for cool toned skin. My SA said it's kind of a tricky color that a lot of people can't wear, but if you can, it's magic. My ultimate advice -- walk away -- don't try it. Seriously, better not to ever know how fabulous it is, than to realize you're addicted to it and will be shelling out a fortune for small amounts for the rest of your life!
i didn't expect chanel to have a matchable shade for my skin tone, but i have worn they're foundations before and so i asked for a concealor to match mat lumiere finish. The first concealor from their line the SA tried on me was the corrector perfection, but they were all sold out in my shade, so i bought the pen style one instead. And i think i actually like the pen style better because i think that the tube style of the other concealor might get all over my purse and whatever, and with the pen i can control the coverage. i did take a lipstick point off for the price, its really expensive, but i think its worth it.
I was trying to buy the Pro lumiere concealer, which is I haven't been able to find. I saw it on a department store website, and ordered it. However when I got my package instead of pro lumiere in light I got this beige tendre light eclat lumiere. Needless to say I was ticked off, but I didn't want to go through the agrivation of trying to return it. First of all this color is very yellow. I feel I would rather put something more pink under my eyes though-to brighten. However this sufices. The first time I used this product on my face I hated it! I felt like I had put mustard on my blemishes. However, the next time I used it I used a tiny bit and then put my powder foundation over and it looked nice. Still I don't feel like this products price tag is worth it. This is a pretty basic concealer. While it isn't drying and its slightly illuminating, it lacks impressive ingredients or something else unique to make it worth choosing over something cheaper. I personally haven't had irritation or clogged pores from this-but I would only recommend using a tiny bit-which is all you need anyway.
