Sometimes this concealer can go on cakey and powdery and creases easily; I found that when I use only a drop beneath my eyes and it suits me just fine. It's long lasting and it really helps cover up the dark circles under my eyes (I have really, REALLY pale skin, so the circles really stand out without concealer). It lasts a long time because I only need a tiny bit. I don't have an allergic reaction to this Clinique concealer like I do with a lot of their other face products.
I think it's a great concealer for covering blemishes as opposed to under the eyes. It is a bit cakey and powdery and I find it hard to blend with my dior skinlights foundation. Dior anti-fatigue concealer for the eyes is better in texture and thin however more expensive. When I go on holiday will buy the dior concealer for my eyes duty free and keep the clinique one just for blemishes. Apparently, it works well with the superfit foundation and yes it does blend well with that when I was at the make up counter...so perhaps try that use it in conjuction with a clinique foundation.
UPDATE: For all you people who are giving it negative reviews about it being too heavy - it's not supposed to be used to cover everything, just stuff around your eyes (although I use it as a blemish cover up).
Personally, I like this concealer. It is thick but that's what helps it have such good covering power. It only takes a little bit and it dries rather quickly but not so quickly that I don't have time to pat it in. The coverage is fantastic! Not a small chore for my dark undereye circles. It does not crease on me and it stays all day long. Honestly, this has to be one of the best liquid concealers I've tried. The tube that it comes in is great also. No complaints from me!
This stuff manages to be really cake-y and dry looking and at the same time it doesn't really cover up my undereye circles. It's magic really.
i bought this hoping it would help mask my undereye circles and puffiness. but then realized it did only an okay job of covering up the darkness but even tho it was a heavy formula and i only used a little bit it went on pretty dry and cakey. and it also settled into my lines and creased and made me look wayy older than i actually am (i'm only 15!) i used an eye cream underneath it everytime i put it on and it didn't make ne difference. plus it made my eyeliner smudge everywhere also. the shades r actually wayy lighter than they look in the tube, i got the medium beige which looked darker than my skin tone but when i put it on it would be like 2125454545100781x times lighter. it also felt kinda gross on my face because it was really heavy. this would work well with someone who doesn't need to cover up alot, doesn't have many or if ne creases or lines under there eyes, and doesnt have really dry skin under their eyes. considering u only use a tiny bit of this it'll last u a while. but i had to take it back for obvious reasons.
I didn't think that anything could make me stray from Elizabeth Arden's Flawless Finish concealer but this has! I have been using it for over a month & love it. It covers well without being heavy and lasts all day. It also doesn't crease on me which is a huge plus. I like the fact that it is more than just a concealer & offers actual skin care benefts. It takes so little that I imagine the small tube will last forever. Can't say enough good things about it!
I was very excited to to try this but it was horrible!Very dry cakey with no coverage AND I did use an eye cream with it. Would not repurchas. However because I do not want to waste the product I have been using it to cover blemishes and it works great for that.
Well, so far so good. I've been using this a week and for me it wears well and lasts mostly all day. A little 'above average' in the coverage and durability, when compared to other cream concealers. At first it DID crease for me, which happened the day I tested it out and the first day after I bought it. What I did notice is that it doesn't crease for me if I set it with a wee bit of loose powder, using a fine fluffy brush. After I caught on that it needed a setting powder, then it worked perfectly. And I do use eye cream (DHC Concentrated Eye Cream) every morning and night, but it's not applied directly before applying my concealer so I don't know if that makes a difference. Based on the fact that it does cover well, has treatment properties and there's a shade available that works well with my skintone, there's a good chance I'll buy it again.
I had such high hopes for this concealer...I love my All About Eyes in the morning, and I was really excited that this would cut a step out of my morning routine. I tried it at counter before buying it, and I remember it going on fairly evenly and the color seemed fine. Unfortunately, I think that was as good as it would ever look on me. I tried it this morning and was a bit shocked. I think I expected something of a gel-cream, like Clinique's Moisture Surge Tint, a combination of my All Abt Eyes and a concealer. Nope. It was more of a thick cream that was difficult to blend, either with my finger or with my concealer brush. Once I finally got it blended, I looked like a racoon, and it looked cakey! I'm not much of a foundation girl (pressed powder, maybe a TM), so I was not happy with the look. Some of the reviews here note that it's easier to blend after you put on a good eye cream, but that is the opposite of my goal for this concealer. I'll be taking this back soon :( On the plus side, I do like the packaging - along the same lines as their Touch Tints, with the see-through tube so you know how much is left.
