I wouldn't go as far as saying I have HORRIBLE dark circles, but they're pretty bad ( due to lack of sleep caused my mild insomnia ): ) This sucks cause people always comment on how tired I look, and how much older I appear then my actual age ( 15 ).
I've been using this product for almost a YEAR now, and there is still about 1/4th of the product left ( which is REALLY good for the price, $8-ish?).
Since I have yellow undertones, this corrector works really well ( since this corrector is extremely YELLOW, it helps to reduce purples, and blues since they're complimentary colours (opposites on the colour wheel) which works so so well to cover dark circles (: ) Of course, you'll find that it is a bit too yellow to wear alone, so you'll have to wear concealer on top of it; just make sure to PAT and NOT rub!
In terms of "staying power", it usually lasts me half the day, then I have to re-apply a bit more (just in the shadows of the dark circles), and then just pat on some concealer. Overall, not a big deal for me (although it WOULD be nice if it did stay all day, but, I guess you shouldn't ask for too much, since this corrector is already SO good)
NC 25-30, yellow Asian Skin. This product is amazing!! LOVE! I was convinced after reading reviews here to try. I usually steer clear of CG products b/c I think they're generally too pinnk for my skintone. I do have dark circles under/around my eyes. This product covered extremely well, is creamy and easy to work with. I use a concealer brush. I don't think it's that expensive for a product that covers so well and last for a long time. Will definitely buy again : )
Did not work well for me, was far too dark for my fair, freckled complexion. Seemed to sit on top of my skin, looked a bit cakey and felt unnatural and dry. I bought this in conjunction with the concealer, based on covergirl.com color match rec's - Would not repurchase either one.
Pros: covers well, creamy, not cakey
Cons: settles into fine lines, looks white, pricey
This gave me amazing coverage, but the color was too light for my NC37 skin tone. It looked white and settled into my fine lines. I didn't find the concealer very moisturizing, either. Not worth the price.
Will not repurchase.
I was using the La Mer Radiant Concealer for under eye darkness and circles, but this settled into fine lines and began to emphasize dryness. The CoverGirl/Olay corrector is AMAZING...it provides complete coverage of any darkness and does not settle into fine lines. The pot is huge...I have been using it for over a month, and I have not even begun to make a dent in the product. I just swirl my finger in the pot (to mix the serum with the corrector) and gently pat my under eye area. If I need extra coverage I apply the under eye concealer over the corrector.
I've had horrible dark eye circles for as long as I know, and I have tried everything from Tarte's dark circle defense to cheap drug store alternatives.
This is by far the best corrector/concealer I have ever used. It is a yellow shade which matches flawlessly with my skin, in fact the amount of concealer I use (L'Oreal Touche Magique) is much less now with this corrector underneath.
I have very dry skin under my eyes and this conceals them amazingly. I do not know how effective it is with puffiness, I haven't noticed too much of a difference. But it does take the shadow away from the edges of your dark circles.
It lasts all day and does not set into my lines or creases. The packaging is alright, although I can see myself not running out of this product for a while. Definitely my HG concealer/corrector.
I love this corrector :) I finally went out and got it after reading some of the reviews and I'm glad I did. I have dark undereye circles (thanks to my mom LOL) and concealers/foundations never really covered them. Since my skin tone is more on the yellow side, this product blends in perfectly. I was soo surprised at the results - I tested it at home when I got it and it made a HUGE difference (and this was on TOP of my makeup at the end of the day!). The packaging is all right - I just have to make sure my hands are clean before I dip into it - but the price COULD be a little lower. Now, I want to try the other Simply Ageless products in the line ^_^ Overall, I give it a 4/5 and will repurchase when I run out!
I've never used a corrector before. I really love this one. It covers my undercircles perfectly and it works great as a eyelid primer as well. Less is more with this product. You only need a wee bit to cover any red spots on your face. I use it over my simply ageless foundation and it blends beautifully. I will be buying this again (when I run out).
Way too dark for me! I have fair skin and this was horrible. That is my primary complaint, but even if it had been a good color for me, it settled into my fine lines! One of the selling points of this product is that it will sit on top of your fine lines. "Ageless" is in the title! Yet, it accentuated all the little lines under my eyes, and I don't even have that many. The skin under my eyes is VERY thin and delicate (more-so than most others') and this looked pretty dry and cakey. Not smooth at all. It might work for people with a darker skin tone and thicker under eye skin.
I had high hopes for this product since I had read so many great reviews for it. Unfortunately, it didn't work for my undereye circles, which are dark brown. The corrector just made them look ashy and really didn't cover them enough. I loved the texture, though--it glides on smoothly. There's also a ton of product in the jar.
