I dont like this product. I don't know why everyone loves it. it died out my undereyes and made them look grey and chalky. will not repurchase ecer again.
I didn't notice a difference after using this product.. I will give it a 2/10 because that's what I think it is worth personally.. I use this stuff called Face Gem and it works waaayyyyy BETTER then this and it's organic and vegan and I am not even a vegan! Too bad I moved out of the Toronto area.. they sell it online but they only deliver in that area but if you guys want something for dark circles/bags I think there website is facegemofficial if you are not in the area try using coconut oil under your eyes I find it works way better then this stuff plus the ingredients are scary ;'( I wouldn't recommend but that's just my opinion to those that it worked for LUCKY You!
This is the first under eye concealer I've tried that has not creased or highlighted my milia (the tiny white spots directly underneath your eyes). I use the shade light and it's a perfect match for my skin tone. It applies very smooth, blends well, and does wonders in covering my dark circles. It doesn't get rid of them completely, but my dark circles are significantly less apparent. For the price, I'd say this is a very good deal considering the quality of the product. However I am not a fan of the packaging - the sponge applicator seems like a breeding ground for bacteria. Some reviewers have recommended taking off the sponge, which I will try to do. Also I don't like the bottom twisting mechanism - it's hard for me to tell if I've twisted it enough for the product to come out yet and it's difficult to control the amount of product that comes out. Still I can deal with the little packaging problems because the formula is absolutely amazing!
I was able to take off the sponge applicator completely: this really helps you control the amount of product that comes out from the tiny nozzle. So since the packaging isn't really a drawback for me, I'm going to add another lippie :)
This is one of my favorite concealers ever. The coverage is great, the applicator is great! Just awesome!
I liked this except that it dried out my undereye skin for some reason. Even with moisturizer.
This is my HG concealer. I use fair (every day!) and the brightener (less regular basis). This doesn't crease under my eyes and more importantly, it hides my VERY dark circles. I set with bare minerals well rested and don't have to worry about it.
It does waste product with the packaging but I just break mine open and use a beauty spatula to get out the rest. I also tear off the sponge applicator and twist the product directly onto my finger for application.
Tengo el color Medium, y me queda naranjo en la piel, quizás tengo muchas ojeras, pero no me cubre nada, por más capas que ponga, no lo volvería a comprar.
i love this concealer........... i have tried many expensive ones (lancome, mac, bobbi brown, laura mercier, nars.....) and found my way back to this babyyy!!! Although the coverage is not very high and my dark circles are quite severe...........but the texture is so amazingly light that really smooth out my under eye area no matter how many layers i stack on..........i dab it under my eyes in big area and then my laugh lines and on the bridge of my nose and then blend blend blend.........it makes me look so bright and alive......then i use 2 to 3 layers more concentrating on the darkest part of the circles.....this never greases and blends well even on dryer skin days.....and it never causes any problem with my extremely sensitive skin.......i'm NC 30 and i use light........highly recommended....!!!
I had initially resisted buying this product due to the silly sponge applicator, but eventually gave in because more than five beauty gurus recommended it. It's a great product, I apply it using the sponge applicator, distribute it evenly using a concealer brush, and blend it in using a beauty blender. One if the only products that irradiates the annoying shadow in the corner of my eye.
When I first saw these, I thought the packaging was gimmicky and obviously the product had to be terrible if Maybelline was resorting to such hokey packaging and marketing for this product. And when I tried these, I found out I was right in regards to the actual applicator. While the concept itself actually worked decently for a while, the plastic ring used to twist the product up cracked soon after purchase and made it impossible for me to get the concealer out. I ended up depotting it, which in and of itself was a very messy process, but it was still worth it not to deal with the stupid and rather unhygienic sponge/twist apparatus.
I was wrong though about the concealer, this stuff is exceptional for a drugstore brand. High coverage concealers at this price point can be really chalky and dry, but I found the lightest shade of this concealer applies nicely, doesn't get chalky, and covers well. I wouldn't use this color on anywhere else but my under eyes as I have yellow undertones, but the salmon undertone here works well to counteract the blue-purple of my under eyes. I actually look forward to putting this on in the morning because it's rich texture is really soothing! I hope Maybelline improves the packaging this product comes in because the formula here is excellent and has a lot of potential.
