I think of this as a highlighter that i put on top of my concealer( theBalm). I actually quite like it and for $6 i would defo buy again.
Love this concealer !! I think its 2 in 1 it brightens the eye area and it also conceals ,it doesn't crease into my eyes and it covers my dark circles very well , i just wish they had more yellow under tones,most of the shades have pink under tones, the only one that has the yellow undertone is Ivory and i chose that shade ,its really light so i don't use it alone i use Garnier tinted roller eye concealer which has a light coverage and it matches my skin , love how both work so well for my undereyes ,i recommend it :)
I purchased my second one just recently as it has worked pretty well for me. I use this as my under eye concealer and it brightens and conceals my dark circles nicely. It has medium coverage and is easily blendable with it's thin consistency. My only complaint is that shades tend to run a little light and you don't get very much product for your money.
So I got this at Target for $8 ($7.44), which isn't bad.
Nude was sold out, so I'm assuming it's a popular color. I myself got Ivory, which has yellow undertones. I am NC20, MUFE HD 117 and it matches my foundation very well.
Consistency is a little thick but it blends out okay. Although it has the potential to get cakey, I don't think it's a huge issue as long as you blend well and be careful about using too much.
Packaging isn't terrible, though the click-pen aspect can be really annoying -- especially when a product is new and you have to anxiously sit there twisting little by little. But after you're past that stage, it's not that bad because you usually only need two to three clicks to get a good amount out.
Highlighter-wise, this is okay. I see a brightness but it's not anything that makes a huge difference, and I don't really see any help with the laugh lines.
I don't have any undereye darkness so I can't comment on how well this covers that area. Still, I think if you have skin that's on the dry side, this might not be too good for your undereye because it might get cakey. My oily skin does fine.
In terms of blemishes/hyperpigmentation, this isn't great. It might cover some lighter pigmented areas, but don't except to get any real coverage. Layering doesn't really help.
Overall, I think this is an okay product. I'll continue to use it for the brightening aspects and would recommend people to try it out if they're curious about a DS highlighter. It's not like it's super disappointing or anything -- except if you are looking to use it as a concealer.
Not a fan of this product. Didn't do anything for my dark circles, found it hard to blend and I don't like the packaging. I"ll stick to Maybelline Dark Circle Eraser.
This is a fantastic product. I've never been happier with a concealer. I got this in Ivory as opposed to Radiant, which I got last time. Radiant seems more pink to me and the Ivory one has a tiny bit of a yellow tone, which is fantastic for my dark circles. The claims are very modest so I didn't have high hopes. It really just claims to illuminate and conceal. It does say for blemishes and under eye area, but I personally would not use this for blemishes because I usually find I like a thicker concealer for spot coverage and a more creamy one for under the eyes. Best thing about this is it does not crease or look cakey, it really just blends right in and makes it look like you slept last night. Absolutely wonderful. Some people will not like the brush applicator by principle but for me it is fine, and I'm sure if you weren't comfortable swiping it directly on your face you could easily just use clean fingers. It's really worth a try anyway. If you want a light-feeling, gel-like concealer to brighten up your dark circles, there's no reason not to love this.
I love this product. I just bought it yesterday at walgreens and I am very impressed with it. I'm the kind of person who sticks with one makeup routine and doesn't really switch anything up but i have been wanting to try some new products for awhile now. Let me just say, this concealer is everything I've been looking for. Super easy to blend, nice coverage, and its brightening without a weird white cast! Love love love this. My color is in ivory.
I love this product its so amazing for concealing and brightening the under eyes! I'm in love! Yeah the packaging might be annoying but comon its great to throw in your purse for touch ups I definitely recommend this product as it's a concealer and brightener in one! Maybelline never fails me in concealers! Highly recommend this!
This is an amazing product! it has awesome coverage and can be used under the eyes or on blemishes, and will brighten up the skin. I bought this not knowing anything about it, but now it is one of my favorite drugstore concealers.
I bought this in the radiant shade for brightening purposes. It really does the job! Keeps my undereye and inner corner area nice and bright. Should mention I don't have too much of an issue with darkness or puffiness. My main reason for buying this was to look more awake. I don't get enough sleep and this helps me look as if I do. Id buy this again simply for the shade. I love this pinky salmon color for my light olive skin. Also on the cheaper end of drugstore highlight products. Im still going to try ysl touche eclat at some point though.
