The new formula is disappointing. I re-ordered Light Buff which had a very faint touch of pink and I received a black tube with a clear strip showing the new tone to the concealer. I applied it and it was much more yellow/beige than the previous shade Light Buff used to be. To make things worse, it dried darker onto the skin which means it is not buildable since it will just get darker and more yellow-toned. Very very disappointing.
I use this to conceal under my eyes and also to spot conceal blemishes. It works pretty well for me because Claire II is pretty much my exact skin color- although maybe slightly more pink. It gives good coverage without any chalkiness when it dries- it just looks like skin. In comparison to Laura Mercier secret camoflage, Lancome beats it out of the water for undereye and spot concealing.
Really easy to work with, fluid concealer that sets quickly and looks very natural. Great if you need to conceal larger areas. You only need the tiniest amonut to go a really long way (use a brush). My only complaint (apart from the price...) is that the colour selection (at least in some countries in Europe is small). Looking at the reviews it seems like the colour selection is much greater in the US. If I have really dark undereye circles I prefer my LM secret concealer.
Liquid gold! This concealer provides light coverage, and I use it not only under my eyes but on blemishes as well. The formula isn't two oily and it doesn't get flaky. It blends easily. My only issue is the price keeps rising! (But they know people will keep paying it) I mean it's Lancome not Yves St. Laurent, yet the prices on their concealers continue to inch closer!
I got this product as a sample and it took me a while to try it, but I was amazed. I have dark circles (hello, stress!) and i use it every day now. You just need a tiny dab of concealer, it goes on smooth and blends in well. I have combo-to- oily skin and not all eye concealers, shadows or liners stay on my eyes for hours, but this one does, no creasing, no running. When I do my make up I use it with Lancome eye primer for my upper lid and they make a perfect pair. I just repurchased this concealer and I hope Lancome never discontinues it!
Oh, IMO there is no perfect concealer. But this is what after 30 years of wearing makeup I have been using a long time. I have it in I think the 2nd lightest color, though I am definitely a Lancome med intensity "2". I just like that this one has some pinkish neutral tones in it. I first use the macquicomplete corrector in yellow, then this over it and it is not crease proof with my wrinkles, if you had none I really do not think it would crease. Lancome is smart to put this in a tube, not a pen with a brush that won't work, they never do. I put a little on my hand, then dip my own brush in it. I don't think you would be dissapointed in this, my undereye circles are terrible and it works.
It's really one of the nicest available concealers, it's medium to full coverage. Sometimes it cakes a little especially if I put too much.
Would probably repurchase, but only if I can't find anything better. As promised, the sheer texture of this product won't smother/suffocate your skin, but don't hope for instant coverage either! Layering works wonders with this.
Because it's so affordable, I use this as an all-round concealer. Tap on a layer, let it set (do other things) then add on another layer.
However, I'm going to have to down my rating because it's a subpar undereye concealer DESPITE being marketed as one. The product flakes after a few hours of wear at my inner-undereye area. To combat this, I use the 10x more expensive MUFE HD concealer on the inner part, followed by this product on the outside.
Shake before use to avoid being greeted with a watery substance from the tube.
So far, this is better than Clarins (which I used to use)

HG HG HG HG HG!!!!!!!! LOVE IT! the consistency is very smooth and light, goes on great and stays put! A little pricey but lasts a while I just simply apply it to the dark shadows under the eye rather then the whole under eye area. Really great and blends out beautifully!!! A++++++++++
Love this concealer!! I use it in ivoire, and it's the perfect colour for my very pale, neutral based, skin. I use it under my eyes, and on any areas of redness. It really blends into the skin, hiding any fine lines under the eyes. It truly lasts all day and doesn't cake. Another positive is the fact that it is waterproof. You can go to the beach without worrying if a splash of water is going to display your dark circles. The tube packaging works great and a little goes a long way. I will definitely buy this product again and highly recommend it to those looking for their HG concealer.
