I had such high hopes for this product since the reviews have been so complimentary. Now I realize this is yet another time you heifers have led me down the garden path straight into the thorn bushes of disappointment and poverty. I'm surprised that EL named this Double Wear Stay in Place. My vote would have been for "I'm Pretty Sure I Put Concealer On." The color range seems to be excellent. It blends well, seems to cover well - although it takes some layering and if you layer once too often it's Crepe City! It actually looks great for about an hour. And then it does this Cheshire Cat thing and becomes more and more sheer until it just isn't there anymore - in about 2-3 hours. Even after setting with powder. Seldom has a product seemed so promising and failed so miserably to live up to its fanfare. Huge waste of time and money.
A good friend of mine helped me get this at a discount. so here is my pov of this products. the texture is creamy. even though it a liquid concealer. love the texture. i dab with my fingers n then apply my foundation, if i want a natural look, i apply my concealer then just pat a loose powder on top of it. however, even the lightest shade = Light is bit dark for me. :( suppose to get at least a shade lighter than ur skin tone. so it does not conceals my dark circles much. maybe due to the shade colour. however, it does conceals my blemishes, such as pimple,pimple scars perfectly. i WILL buy this product again if only they hv it in lighter shade. i still use this though.. but dun like it much. since i like a concealer to cover not only minor blemishes but dark circles! now i will hv to haunt for a new concealer.
This is my HG under eye concealer. This is the only concealer I have used that does not fall into the creases under the eyes. Once it's set, it stays there all day, no creasing at all. It does a fairly good job of covering dark circles, but mine aren't very severe so it works well for me. It is quite a matte finish, so if you are particularly dry around the eye area or suffer from quite a lot of lines then this product probably isn't the best for you as it can accentuate lines and dryness. I'm on my third tube of this, it's awesome stuff.
Love this stuff! The aesthetician at my dermatologist's office recommended it when she did an application of Jane Iredale makeup on me. I use the Light 01, primarily to cover blemishes and sunspots. Once it's dry it really doesn't budge, unlike some concealers that are so creamy they end up sliding right off throughout the day. I just purchased a second tube so I can keep one in my purse and one at home. I use it before applying Jane Iredale pressed base and it covers everything beautifully.
Was fighting for the lifetime with incredibly dark circles around my eyes which I tried to hide by all possible ways. Never succeeded anyway.
After reading so many good reviews for this concealer I decided to give a try.
Received it today and couldn't wait till tomorrow to use it with my complete make-up.
Bare face, so dark circles, veins and all imperfections fully revealed. After one coat of the concealer it vanished......!!!! dark circles just disappeared, veins became invisible as well as other flaws. I just couldn't believe my eyes and had to watch myself in the mirror for about one hour!
As for the color: I got the light one 01 which matches pretty well to my skin tone although I am rather yellow undertoned PPP and find this a little bit pinkish. Nevermind at all! The coverage is so great that I don't care of this detail.
I guess I can hardly find a better concealer for my terrible skin. This one is doing just fantastic job like nothing else.
Highly recommended and absolutely unbeatable!
Gonna re-purchase again and again.
So glad I tried this. Long lasting and great coverage. Use this for spot concealing and (over BB corrector) for really nasty dark undereye circles. Does not cake at all.
I have had this concealer for a while now and as I was cleaning out my purse makeup bag, noticed that I am almost out of it! I like the tube that it comes in and the applicator sponge, great for on-the-go touch ups. It does have great staying power and the creamy texture looks very natural on. Would buy again and recommend.
One good point about this product is that it has good coverage n hides dark circles very well.. HOWEVER, it DRIES up upon application(&after setting powder) and accentuates lines.. veryveryvery bad product if u have lines under ur eyes. make you feel conscious. :( if only it didnt dry off as bad..... continued >>
Let me tell you- i have never ever repurchased a concealer in my life. I have tried so many of the things only for them to not cover my acne scarring (which isnt even that bad) and redness around nose, and slip right off my combo skin after theyve been on for literally an hour. Then i found this!! This is my HG! I have it in medium which is the perfect shade for my medium olive skin. I put it on the back of my hand and apply it with a concealer brush around my nose, a little on chin, on some mild acne scarring from years ago and on any occasional blemish. It serves the purpose brilliantly and gives me a really professional airbrushed finish. It lasts from 7am to 10pm and when i take it off my m/u looks like ive just applied it. I also apply a little of this onto my t zone and it helps my Maxfactor Liquid Illusion in natural stay in place better.
The packaging is great, really practical and slips into my cosmetic purse easily. I do not need to retouch my m/u at all when i use this concealer. Will definitely repurchase- HG YAY!
I think this is probably the best concealer I've ever tried. That being said, it was great for my particular problems. It may not be so great for others. I have noticed this concealer is more drying than others. However, I have no problem as long as I apply an eye cream directly before using the product (and I do not have undereye dryness in general). Others that experience undereye dryness may not like this particular product. The pros def. outweigh this one minor con. It is totally natural looking (no gunky undereye makeup here!), you can layer it for maximum coverage, it stays in place all day long, and it does not build up in the couple of undereye wrinkles I do have. My main concern when buying a concealer is that it cover my very dark undereye circles. This works better than ANY other product I've tried (bare escentuals concealer, bobbi brown correcter, touche eclat, mufe full cover concealer, benefit lemonaid, and benefit erase paste). I was layering about five different products to achieve just some dimishing of my eye circles. A couple of layers of this and I am camoflauged and look completely natural. Not only does it cover dark circles completely, but it also seems to reflect light, so it brightens the undereye area as well. I can not attest to how this covers zits or hyperpigmentation as I only use this under my eyes. For the other, I use MUFE Full Cover Concealer.
