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.
This product is great. I put off buying it for a while even though I LOVE the Simply Ageless Foundation and blush and really like the concealer. I was hesitant because I thought it would be too dark and/or too orange. But I couldn't resist (shocker), so I got it. And I'm so glad I did. This is SO much better than the Simply Ageless Concealer, which is too transparent for me to love it. Both products feel good on the skin and wear well, but the Corrector does such a better job covering and brightening. I think this may beat my beloved BB Corrector. I'm a cool-toned PPP (NW 15) and this works really well for me. I would hope it works for a lot of different shades because, as I said above, I thought at first this would be too dark for me, but it worked great. Although I don't see it working well on darker women since it does work so well for PPP me.
I have only been using this for a few days, so I'll update when I've used it longer. Cover Girl says these products will improve your skin over time because of the Olay Regenerist in them, so I'll be interested to see if that's true for me. My skin is in good shape, but I'd always love even better skin. That's why I keep trying products even when I've found my holy grails. :)
If you are on the fence about the Concealer or the Corrector, I'd go with the Corrector unless there's a perfect color match for you in the Concealer. I do wish Cover Girl would expand the line and make additional shades of the Correctors and Blushes and maybe even start doing shadows (I love cream shadows). My skin is on the dry side, and I think this product is probably best for normal and dry skinned women. The Corrector, to me, seems more moisturizing than the Concealer. I thought the Concealer was nice, but after using the Corrector, I'm not feeling the great love for it I did feel, although I'll probably keep my review of it at four lipsticks because it is a nice product. But this Corrector is a total five lipstick product for me, and I will definitely be using this up and repurchasing it when the time comes.
Having had the worst experience with LM Secret Camouflage, I was really mixed up about what kind of product I should use for my undereye darkness. I saw this, looked it up on MUA and seeing it got good ratings I decided to pick it up. I used it today (for some reason I have bags from bad sleeping last night so I haven't had the full-effect) but this stuff is AMAZING. Covers the dark circles, gives a nice appearance, it's creamy, smooth, easy to blend and work with... the best. This product gets it, I don't know why $40 concealers don't.
