Looking at the other reviews, I'm not sure if I'm reviewing the right concealer. This is just a generic concealer from MK. It doesn't say anything specific on it. I got this from my sister for X-mas and have since thrown this in a drawer. Yes it conceals but it's too dark for my skin color. Not only that but it doesn't conceal much. If you have acne or very slight under eye circles you'll be fine. I don't. I do need more coverage than just this and I'm still on the search.

I've been using Vichy's Dermablend concealer for my dark under eye circles....it is actually my HG concealer. But I always like trying new products and I'm always on the hunt for a good bargain. So, I purchased this very inexpensive concealer in yellow for my medium-fair asian skin. It is absolutely fabulous! You only need a very small amount of product to cancel out the dark circles. It also lasts all day and does not smudge my eyeliner or mascara. There are however, a couple of small issues with this product. One, it is too thick and tends to run on the dry side. I find that in order to prevent the product from settling into any fine lines in the eye area, I have to moisturize very well with an eye cream before I apply the concealer. Two, the color is slightly too light and can cause the reverse raccoon look if you don't apply with a light hand. Still, I will definitely repurchase this concealer!

Very, VERY yellow... use for SERIOUS blemishes only, it doesn't blend very well. Thick & creamy, so good for covering blemishes; but it tends to crease & look cakey on the under eye circles.
Also it broke me out.

if i was in a hurry, i would buy this product again! it covered my dark eye circles semi good without creasing or getting cakey! it didnt cover as good as i'd like thought. its in an easy open box and out tube so thats good, but i think the Maybelline mineral power concealer covers better and is cheaper!

i got this from my auntie when i was starting with make up for acne....

its been about three yrs, and i'm just finishing off that first tube i got from her.

i love it so much more than every other concealer ive used....

its heavy, so i use it on scars and acne, but skip it for under eye...

i got it in beige 1, which was too light for me, so im gonna go darker when i buy the next tube....

it covers really well..... since its so heavy, it really works...

i still have to go to PE and it never runs, even during the 12 min run...

I LOVE IT!

EDIT: ok, so I didn't buy this again, instead I am using maybellines dream mousse concealer, mainly because I don't know a Mary kay seller anymore, so dream mousse is more widely available... I took off a lippie cuz I like dream mousse better.

This is the perfect concealer for BLEMISHES. It may be a bit too thick for under the eyes (it's similar to the consistency of warm peanut butter) and requires PATTING, not swiping, for even and blended coverage. I say that it's good for blemishes because the thickness makes it super pigmented, unlike watery concealers that go on sheer and don't do the actual job a concealer should do, which is to cover up... to conceal! This concealer covers up color very well (redness), and is thick enough that it smooths out uneven texture when patted on evenly... and again, I mean that, PATTED. You won't get even coverage by smearing it on, you must gently pat until blended. Also, a little goes a LONG WAY, I mean, you barely need a pin-point-size dab to cover an entire blemish, making this stuff last FOREVER and you get your money's worth. I've used this concealer on blemishes without anything on top to set (foundation, powder, etc.) and it lasted me a 9-hour day at work (sweaty and hectic) without wearing off (keep in mind my skin is not that oily). I also used it on blemishes before going out dancing, having applied liquid foundation and super light powder on top to set, and once again, lasted me a whole night of super sweaty dancing. In other words, staying power is great, with or without a set. The good thing about this line is that it comes in many tones -- warm, cool, yellow, etc. -- so you're bound to find one that at least comes darn close to what you need. I'm a medium olive tone, and beige 1 works good for my yellow-undertoned skin. Can't believe I used a watery concealer for so long, this one's the bomb.

I never quite understood if this is the concealer in the black tube or the one that says "signature" because the pictures uploaded are two different concealers (??). I tried the black tube in the lightest shade and unfortunately it wasn't as good as I had hoped. It came out a little too yellow on my skin, it's a little thick for me and not as easy to blend into my skin or foundation as I'm used to with Lancome Effacerness. It actually seems like it never really blends in. It has a high coverage, but too much makes it look like a mask. So in the end, I don't know if the coverage was natural for me. The positive thing is that it's cheap so I didn't feel bad about it. I will stick to Lancome.

I have very dark under-eye circles and also very dark skin on my eyelids. This is due to heredity (thanks dad) and not lack of sleep or allergies. I have tried many concealers, and this one is the best so far. I use the "yellow" color, which does a good job of counter-acting the purple-y color of my circles. I find that I can build up the coverage, and it still doesn't look too cakey, as long as my skin is well exfoliated and moisturized to begin with. I'm not saying it's perfect, but it's the best thing I've found so far!

It's great! Creamy and provides great opaque coverage. I'm kinda new to makeup but its better than the cheap drugstore brand i tried. It is really great for under eye darkness. I don't get many zits, and I'm not wrinkly (yet!) so I can't comment on that. But overall great product and I got mine free because my mom used to sell so it works for me!
