I thought that this product was going to be amazing, considering the price. i was wrong, this product hardly covers up my dark circles, it goes cakey, and is far too shiny!
i will not be buying it again
Tends to cake in the fine lines. Not as good coverage as I'd like but best I've had so far. One jar lasts a long time if used properly! Will buy again unless I find something that covers better.
Don't really like this product. I find it is quite greasy and I find it settles in my fine lines under my eyes. Doesn't cover too well and doesn't stay on my skin very long. Wouldn't buy again.
I don't like this concealer at all. It feels so heavy, it doesn't cover that much (I have very dark under eye circles), and it's SO expensive. In my opinion it's not worth the money. So disappointed.
I have the deep shade of this product. I purchased this item because I have really bad dark under eyes and I wanted a product that will act as a corrector. I do not like the fact you have to either dip your finger in the product or use a brush to take out the product. The concealer did come with a small scooper thing, but its hard to keep that item with the product. I liked this product but I always found that it had a tendency to crease underneath my under eye area even after applying powder. I found that in the mornings, when your in a rush, its difficult to blend this in by warming in with your finger by patting it. I found a new technique that I love to apply this product. I apply the concealer underneath my eye by dabbing it. I than take my MAC stippling brush and spitz it with MAC Fix plus and blend it in. I than apply powder. This makes it so much easier and If it's blended in properly than you will not see crease lines. I will not be repurchasing this product because I would like to try the other type of concealer by Benefit.
This product scared me at first because of how salmon-y it looked, but of course that does wonders for eliminating blue tones (such as undereye and eyelids). It brightens my undereye pretty well, and I love the creamy consistency for blemishes as it doesn't settle into dry patches or lines and has full coverage. But find it less suited to larger areas like dark circles. I apply it to my inner corners (where it's darkest on me) with a concealer brush out of the package and then use my ring finger to tap-blend it in. I find that this gives the most blended, sheer coverage- unfortunately this concealer creases if you use more than a sheer amount. Granted, even in small doses it eliminates blue quite well, but it is probably best paired with a light-medium coverage base product to be even more rid of dark circles.
I like this product for concealing spots. It is pretty thick and pigmented so it covers redness pretty well. As far as an undereye concealer, I've given up all hopes of this working. I have dark circles under my eyes and while this does cover them I find it looks cakey and settles into my creases within an hour or two. I have tried moisturizing before applying this and setting with a few different powders but it just doesn't work and makes my eyes look older. The packaging is cute but I have always thrown the spatula away. The smell reminds me of bandaids...which is a bit gross. I have purchased this twice, but I may venture on to another concealer once this runs out.
My HG concealer! I have really serious dark under eye circle due to hereditary reason. This one really helped me out erasing and camouflaging my darkies. I am medium fair complexioned but the SA matched me with the color "deep" which is the darkest color within the range.. at first I was hesitant as it looked dark for me but the SA says it will camouflage with my dark circles and voila it really did! and it has that brightening effect on me too.. and for some reason it went invisible on my skin and matches well on the rest of my face.
Ladies, I know about the creasing issues with this but this what I do, I have dry skin so i make sure I moisturise my skin around the eyes before applying this erase paste and I don't glide it in, instead I do the "TAP, TAP, TAP" motion with my ring finger until I'm satisfied with the coverage.. That's just it.. then it stays put and doesn't budge nor creases.. try it ladies.. don't swipe, don't glide.. just the tapping motion,, and doing this will at the same time help massage the skin under your eyes which promotes blood flow (poor blood circulation is one of the many reasons why we develop dark circles around our eyes). So there you go try it before giving up on this wonderful product. <3
I had high hopes and really liked this at first, but it does indeed crease really bad. I mix it w other random concealers I have and it does better. I actually do like how thick it is and I enjoy having it in my make up bag to mix with. I think it provides good coverage for my dark circles. I may buy again when I run out if I find it to be a staple item, but that'll be a while bc a little goes a long way. The packaging doesn't bother me, but I hear it's unsanitary. I just bought benefits newest concealer- fake up- to try out so I'll see how that compares...it's supposed to be creaseless. My good drugstore concealer by Revlon was discontinued :-(- that one never ever creased.
This stuff is just awful. Because it cost me so much (I had to wait until my birthday before I could afford it) I really, really tried to like it. At first I thought I just wasn't using it properly, since everyone seems to rave about it and it's SO EXPENSIVE. But, no, I've tried everything. I've tried using the stupid spatula that comes with it - chucked that away, I've tried using sponges, blending with my fingers... I even bought a special concealer brush to use with it on the recommendation of a Youtube reviewer, still rubbish. It's supposed to correct dark circles under the eyes, but if anything this made the bags under my eyes WORSE and made me look older and more tired, accentuating the lines around my eyes and doing nothing for dark circles whatsoever. It's just greasy and shiny and lame and horrible and ugh. I don't know how I got suckered into buying this. Terrible.
