I read the great reviews on this product and planned to try it, but never did. Yesterday at the Chanel counter at Nordstrom I finally gave it a try. I love this stuff. Everything everyone says is so true, it does not cake and is very moisturizing. I am not certain how long it will last, but I do agree $40 is pricey for a product that only lasts a few weeks, so we shall see. It does not seem like you need that much of it though. Good work Chanel and thanks MUA!
Would I buy this product again. Oh yes. It is *the* product. Granted, it lasted me all of 4 weeks. That sucked. Granted, it is not 5.99. That too would have been great. However, it makes my skin look doll perfect. I am a pale gal and it sinks right in. My only regret is that they put so little product in it. Would it kill them to put a whole mL in? However. I love it, and after trying several other concealer pens, I am re purchasing. It is my HG of all HG's and I am not even a Christian.
I have a love hate relationship with this product. First I must say that this is probably the best under eye concealor for me, color, texture, lasting power. I used it in Beige Rose. It was not drying at all (I have very dry under eye area) and gave the most gorgeous finish, as it says it highlighted gorgeously. My BIG complaint is that it only lasts for about 1 month. When my first one ran out that soon I thought it was just a fluke. I bought another one, I think it ran out sooner. And there is no warning that it is about to run out. I asked Chanel SA if I had just gotten irregular or bad pens, she said that most people are saying they last about 3 or 4 weeks. $40 for 3 or 4 weeks is just too much for me.
i don't normally use undereye concealer but i really like this product. i actually bought it a while back but didn't use it much until recently when i pulled an all nighter and i had the bigger bags ever. it works great and the colour matches well with my skin tone. if my circles are really bad i tend to use another concealer over top. i like the design on the pen. very classy. i heard really good reviews on the YSL one as well so i might try that one next time.
Love it, love it, love it! I tend to get dark circles and the 30 Rose Beige covers them beautifully. Not too heavy, and doesn't settle into fine lines. Light and creamy consistancy and doesn't irritate my sensitive eyes.
I bought this when i was insanely early at Luton airport the other week, had about 2 hours before my flight and was soooo bored and browsing the chanel counter. I already have the ysl, guerlain, prescriptives and im sure more brands that i cant remember right now, version of this type of ''pen'' highlighting concealer. If you do too i dont think you ''need'' this, its more of a ''luxury'' buy if like me u like trying new things out. But this isnt particularly anything special. It conceals a lot better than the ysl version, it doesnt crease as long as i dont put too much on, like any other pen type concealer its very convienent to just re-apply whenever u need to...im nc32-35 and i use no. 30 beige rose, the colour is perfect but 40 would also work i think. I like slightly pinky undereye concealers as they tend to highlight my dark circles better than yellow bases. A good concealer, but as i said nothing special really. i think out of all of the ones i have tried, the PX i liked the best
This is the best concealr/highlighter pen I have ever used. The concealer has a great consistency not too watery and not to thick. It just blends onto the skin beautifully and has great coverage and in 20 beige clair is the perfect match for my skin. I have found my HG concealer!
I prefer this to the Touch Eclat from YSL after only one trial for a simple reason - this has better coverage. I need to use the YSL one in conjunction with the liquid concealer from Lola and still can't conceal the dark circles completely, so you may imagine how bad my dark circles are. The coverage of this is not bad. It can almost completely conceal my dark circles, I would say 80-85% when used alone, which is almost the same when I use the Lola and YSL. Note that my eyes look perfect if there's light but still looks kind of horrid under dim light when the light-reflecting particles aren't working that well.
This is also one of the liquid concealers that can stay put under my eyes as mysteriously, msot of the liquid concealers don't stay on well on me even though I do powder. This doesn't settle into my fine line under my eye too unless I powder a little bit too much. Actually I use this mostly when I don't wear any fdt instead of my CdP concealer as this is less drying. The pen is easy to carry for touch ups and use as well. Definitely a repurchase!
At last I've found "Concealer for Dummies". This is so easy to apply and the finish is very good; much better than YSLs Touche Eclat in my opinion. I used #20 which was perfect for my Fair skin. It had a dewy finish, felt silky and did not settle in to fine lines - I am 34 after all ;-P
I thought it was vastly better than the Tinted Eye Brightener as mentioned below (wrong colour perhaps?). I would rec heading to a Chanel counter for a test and see it in natural daylight and different lighting conditions before making a purchase. SNet, of course, had it cheaper but in a very limited colour range.
I have bad dark circles but am a sucker for pen highlighting concealers. Chanel's has great quality, comfortable fluid texture and has decent coverage for the type of product.
I take it with me in my makeup pouch and use it for touch ups specially if I have an unexpected dinner or late meeting with a client to look refreshed and more polished. I prefer this to Le Touche d'Éclat or Laura Mercier's Secret Brightener. If you already have the Guerlain pen concealer, La Prairie or Clarins, then this one does nothing new for you. But if you're considering getting a pen concealer, this is a pretty good option. As always Chanel caters only to light and medium skin tones which is kind of disappointing.
This doesn't settle into fine lines or makes the undereye area look more tired as the day progresses and is quite similar to BB's Tinted Eye Brightener only less moisturizing.
