Such a disappointment!
I was really looking forward to using this product on my stubborn under-eye circles, but the results aren't very good.
I put the product uner one eye, WITH another regualr concealer AND some powder foundation, but it looked almost the exact same as the other eye. You couldn't even notice a difference. :(
i have this a long time but don't use it. i always think i'll give it another go as there is so much product. i love this brand generally speaking. i really like the cream to powder yellow and flesh toned concealer and if i could find the yellow magic cube concealer, i'd buy as many as i could get my hands on! so when i could not longer find the magic cube, i tried this concealer. it's not too yellow as some say, rather its too shiny, greasy for me so i can't trust it to stay. i am primarily trying to cover redness from rosacea. i loved the cube as it was water proof and lasted all day. even the concealer duo lasts more than most though its not wp, because it dries down to a powder.
a greasy concealer isn't helpful to me at all. however maybe if used under the eyes its moisturizing. i have not tried it for that.
Took care of the dark circles decently. It was a little irritating to wash off on my eyes though. Tried the Almay Bright Eyes and I haven't gone back since.
This concealer is not creamy whatsoever, and tugs on the skin of applied straight from the packaging onto the area to be concealed. After it was applied to my undereyes, it didn't seem to eliminate any purple coloring, but instead made the area look worse -- like I was trying to cover purple marker with yellow crayon -- not a good look!
Even in extremely outdated packaging this can be a good product. It is styled like a lipstick in a screw-up tube with a clear cap. I never apply it directly from the tube. I use a concealer brush from Sephora to take a very small amount from the tube and brush on my face. I use skin colored concealer over this and a thin application of powder to set it (dip the brush in loose powder, tap a few times on the edge of the powder jar).
The key to success in using this product may be in using a very small amount. I really wanted a yellow color corrector for a low price. I also use the mint green in a pot from Physician's Formula. I take a small amount on my finger and tap on the reddish areas of my face only until the color seems to balance (neutralize). I put on foundation first and only apply color correctors to the parts that still seem purple (for yellow corrector) or red (for the green).
Wow, way 2 YELLOW! Good gravy! Hard to blend/slippery too.
Finally, a gentle yellow concealer-not TOO greasy, or too dry (has no kaolin, or cream to powder finish like some of the PF concealers).
I have moderate dark circles on very pale skin, this improves the dark circles pretty well. Use it sparingly and put your foundation over it.
i use a q-tip to put this on, dabbing.
Yellow was just as pointles as green. This did nothing but give me a funky yellow hue that I had to try and conceal with make up. It didnt cover my circles any better than regular concealer. Actually it did a worse job. Stick to regular concealer. If these inverse colors worked so well as concealers, I'm sure every make up company would be jumping on the band wagon. They arent because this doesnt work. Stick to regular concealer.
