This has excellent staying power! This is a fabulous undereye concealer that takes you through work day through to a night out! I would recommend to anyone since the price is fairly reasonable and the applicator is hygenic and easy to use.
This is my favorite concealer for under my eyes. It stays in place all day long. It doesn't settle into those pesky tiny lines, and looks a lot fresher than the concealers that have a more waxy consistency.
This blends great with my foundation, but looks just as good when I opt not to use the foundation and use my MSF instead.
I've been using a deluxe sample of it forever, so I know a little goes a loooong way. When I finally have to break down and purchase the full-sized; I know it will last me forever.
My only beef with this concealer is the application process. It's the typical wand applicator and tube of product (like lots of lipglosses are) I don't like the idea of dipping something that's been around my eyes back into the product. Not that I have gross/infected eyes; but the thought of germs breeding does sometimes give me pause.
Overall, this is more than wonderful! :D
I have fair, sensitive, dry/combo skin with dark pigmentation patches under my eyes due to a hormonal condition and I wanted a concealer to cover this. This concealer is the only concealer I've found that does this without drying out my skin. I managed to get a gwp sample with this concealer one end and Double Wear Mascara the other end. I love both products and will be re-purchasing both in full sizes when they run out, but I have to say the sample gwp size has lasted 4 months already!...FAB! I apply the concealer which is nice and thick in consistency (but not too thick that it doesn't blend) with a concealer brush and it easily covers the pigmentation and any marks/blemishes I have without any trouble at all. It lasts all day long too so it does "stay-in-place"!
This product is not good for yellow based skin tones. I was trying to find a replacement for my beloved Prescriptives concealer so I bought this because of the rave reviews. The light color is rather dark. I'm an olive skin tone & I found it to be dark on my skin & I'm not pale at all. It made my red marks look more splotchy because of the pink undertones to this concealer. I like the wand applicator & it does stay put & last all day, but if you have fair skin or yellow undertones, stay away.
I got this a few days ago and i found it to be a good product. I have very dry skin because im on acne medication which dries it. I dont use this on my cheeks as it turns cakey and flakey but under my eyes it works wonders, stays put, conceals everything and gives a natural look.
overall a good concealer.
the best concealer hands down. this dosen't fade it stays put. i would buy again
This concealer worked pretty well. I also tried the Bye Bye Under Eye Concealer by It Cosmetics. This concealer seemed to work better.
The only downside is the lightest shade is a bit yellowy for my very light skin. However, if you put your foundation on top of it, you can't see it anyway. Also I think the yellow makes it do a better job of canceling out the dark under eye circle color.
I wouldn't call this HG, but then again I haven't found the perfect product. It seemed thicker than Bye Bye and it does go on rather thick, but, it didn't really smooth out the skin under my eyes and the circles still showed slightly. Also it wore off after a while. I suppose if I layered it a bit more maybe it would work better.
I have to say that I didn't notice the hugest difference with whether I wore this or not along with my regular foundation. Anyway, so far, this is the best concealer I have tried.
Finally, a concealer that actually conceals! I have tried them all, from low end to high end and even Dermablend which is supposed to cover tattoos (yeah, right) and this is the only concealer I've found that can actual cover my dark circles! The consistency is perfect and you only need the tiniest bit when applying, plus you can layer it as well for perfect coverage (though you won't really need to, I just have VERY dark eye circles). The only problem I had was entirely my fault - I didn't realise that if you want to conceal puffiness as well, you should go a shade darker, but this is easily remedied by putting on my EL Maximum Cover foundation on top. I might purchase a darker shade for my eyes and keep this one for redness. I've had no problems with it sinking into fine lines or caking, even on the days when my skin is dry.
I gave this 5 lippies for the price because while it was expensive, it is very cost effective because you only need the tiniest amount for great coverage. Because of this, I think it will actually work out much cheaper than even the drug store brands. Though even if it was twice as expensive, I would still purchase it because it does such a good job of hiding my dark circles.
My favorite! My mom, sister and I have used this for over 10 years. My sister and I both worked for other cosmetic lines in college and inherited my mom's dark circles.
It covers and is not drying, nor super creamy. I'm fair, but use the 2nd lightest. Works for covering all spots, as well.
I keep trying others, but this is still the best.
Because I have extremely fair skin and large eye sockets, as well as a hereditary predisposition to hyperpigmentation in the undereye area, I have terrilbly prominent dark circles. I am 40 years old, and have tried just about every product under the sun for concealing, but this is the first time I have ever felt compelled to submit a review.
This is an amazing product. Those who have said that it looks cakey or emphasizes fine lines or that it is drying are simply not using it correctly. A couple dabs of this product are all you need to cover dark circles and/or blemishes. I place three small dots beneath each eye and three larger ones on each eye lid. Using my middle finger, I pat it all over my lids as an eyeshadow base, at the inner corners to lighten the shadows there, and beneath the eye to conceal. I use what is left over on my finger to pat onto dark spots and blemishes.
As I said, I am 40 years old, and though I think I look quite youthful, I do have fine lines beneath my eyes from a lifetime of squinting due to extremely poor vision. Used properly, this will not settle into lines or crease later on during the day. I find that if I pat gently until it is dry, it "sets" itself without creasing. I don't need powder anywhere near my eyes, as of course it does emphasize fine lines. Therein lies the beauty of this product. It sets itself and does not budge, but still covers completely and looks natural. You should not need powder to "set" this product at all. It performs incredibly well all on its own.
I have only bought one tube and have finally had to concede that it is well and truly empty. I purchased it over a year ago. I will be at the make-up counter tomorrow to purchase a fresh new tube. It's pricey, but I think the fact that it performs so well and lasts so long make it a more cost effective price than some other products that are just as expensive, but last half as long.
