I bought this due to the great reviews I read on here.
The color I purchased was light; for reference I have pretty pale skin, Mac NC15
The consistency of this concealer is pretty thick. I like to apply some on the back of my hand using the applicator, then use a brush to apply the product on my face.
I like to use this to conceal the dark areas around my mouth, and under my eyes. I do not have major eye circles, just a little darkness and this conceals/brightens it perfectly.
Concealer wise, it has medium coverage max.
Highlighter wise, I really love this product for that. It doesn't have any shimmer, which I like.
I purchased this at target for around 7$. The price is okay too.
The only thing I don't really like is the packaging,
Overall, nice product.
Walmart was out of the concealer color I was looking for so I got this in Radiance to try out. Way too light for me to use it as a concealer on most parts of my face, but I absolutely love it as a highlighter around my eye area! This stuff brightens my eyes like nothing else. I put it on in the inside corners of my eyes, along my bottom lash line, and right below my browbone after I've put on my eye shadow. I gave it 4 lippies instead of 5 only because the brush it comes with just doesn't cut it. I blend it in with a concealer brush and it blends and highlights just beautifully.
i have to say i didn't really get on with this product. for all the raving that this has gotten i expected something a bit better than what i got - which was minimal coverage and pretty cakey application. my under eye skin is certainly dry but there are others that work - the age-rewind concealer from the same brand, for example, which i think is 10x better than this. i found the click top mechanism pretty messy and difficult to deal with and didn't find that it had much advantage over a normal doe foot applicator.
The concealing power of this product is actually quite low. It barely covered up my dark circles. This works a lot better as a highlight, but it's not nearly good enough to justify the price. You're getting 1.5 ml of product, most of which is wasted through the packaging (this kind of packaging works a whole lot better with lip glosses!), and it barely qualifies as a concealer. Don't waste your money on a measly 1.5 ml.
This gets a five for color match, durability, and finish. Ivory matches my fair skin very well, and once blended, this absolutely lasts all day on me. I set with a little HD silica powder, but I am not even sure that's necessary. The finish is slightly dry, so it works very well on my oilyish eye area. It's fairly sheer, but the coverage is slightly buildable. Those are all the things I do like, and it's very difficult for me to find a concealer that satisfies my pickiness in these areas. The things I wish were different: I wish it had SPF; I'm very diligent about applying foundation with SPF and sunscreen underneath, but I have yet to find a sunscreen that I can apply right up close to my eyelids without irritation, so I'd like my concealer to provide some sun protection. Also, I hate the pen-style applicator and as others have mentioned, it's only half-full. I'd much prefer a little squeeze tube or something more hygenic than a built-in brush.
Great concealer for under the eyes and any other area that needs some extra coverage. I haven't had too many issues with the packaging - though I do agree that sometimes I feel like I'm twisting and getting nothing...and them BAM it all comes out. But that's not usually an issue because it never "gives" me more than I end up using anyway. Overall a good product!
The product itself is not bad if you can find the right color. Its sheer but brightening. It is not a heavy duty concealer if that is what you are looking for. Its good for highlighting and brightening undereye circles. However, the packaging is absolutely terrible. It is a twist cap pen with a brush tip. You're supposed to twist the end for product to come out but either nothing comes out or too much comes out. I always end up twisting more than I should need to even though I try to store it downwards so that the product is prepped to come out. For that reason alone I would not recommend it because it is such a source of frustration.
I'm on the fence about this..
Covers dark circles and brightens really well, but to do so I needed to use 2 or 3 layers. Since it is sheer and needs to be layered, it begins to cake up a bit and sink into fine lines and corners of the eyes. It also smears and wipes off very easily, which I do not like. The twist pen packaging also sucks.. the brush gets all goopy after each use and makes a mess. Meh.
This is a great undereye concealer, I have this in the colour "radiant" which is very pink tones (helps counteract blue veining well). The only thing I wish is that the applicator was better, I am not too keen on the click up plastic applicator, would of preferred a doe foot or a paint on type.
For many years I used the Age Rewind in a small squeezable tube. It was perfect. Now we have the gimmicky eraser style pen, and now this twist up pen concealer.
This product is ok. However, it is only ONE and a half milliliters of product (1.5ml). The old tube style had ELEVEN milliliters. The new product cost me $13 and there is no way to even get all of the product out of the cheap pen.
This product is a rip off, plain and simple. I'm determined to find something of better value.
