I have just recently started looking for a new concealer and thought I would step out of my norm and try this one. It works well on hiding my dark circles but at the end of the day it makes my skin look like it has an orange tinge to it where i put the concealer. There wasn't a lot of choices with the colors so I don't know that I could try a diff color. Overall it does the trick if I am going to wear a foundation over it but if I want a light day, forget it.
As a concealer, it's terrible. Doesn't cover up my dark circles like I wanted, and the color choices are too limited. I'd rather not waste it, so I'm using it as an eye shadow base. Rather not buy again.
I love how this product feels under my eyes. I love the 3 in 1 concept , So I was hoping this would work better for me.. They didnt have many colors to chose from so it doesn't match my skin,,, And the coverage is not great for me. I do have very dark circles so its hard to find stuff that works for me... but It might work for others.
This is my favorite under eye concealer. I use it under my eyes and it covers my dark circles well, and I use it over my lid like a primer for my eyeshadow. I normally use just the concealer and no foundation and it blends nicely into my skin and you can't tell its there. It lasts all day and it doesn't cake or crease. And if i do put a powder on it goes well under or over it and still looks smooth and unnoticeable.
I tried using it with a concealer brush but found it worked better just putting a dot on my finger and patting it on.
The only thing I don't like about this product is the packaging. That's why I only gave it a 4. I feel like I'm wasting product and that drives me crazy because it's about $10. I wouldn't mind paying that much because I love the product, I just wish it was in a type of jar. You could always transfer it to a new container yourself though, that's what I plan on doing next time.
Overall, love this product and will buy again and again.
This is my favorite concealer ever. I have chronic dark circles under my eyes and this concealer has given me the BEST coverage without caking. I don't have to use powder to set it and it has good staying power. Plus it gives me a dewy moist look which minimizes fine lines and wrinkles. And it has an SPF of 20 which decreases the formation of fine lines and wrinkles.
I use the lighter colour, Fair 05 which suits my lighter skin tones well. My daughter tried it but needs the darker concealer in order to blend with her more olive skin tones.
I recommend this product without reservation to any woman in need of good undereye and imperfection coverage.
This product is very creamy and does a good job at keeping my skin moisturized during the winter months. It has pretty good staying power, I usually don't have to apply any powder over it for it to stay put all day. As for covering my circles, that's why it got 3 stars. I have a hard time finding a concealer that works for my very dark circles. Sometimes they have a blue cast...sometimes they're red. They have a mind of their own and its very frustrating! This product doesn't really cover up my circles and it gives me sort or a white cast (probably because of the SPF). Probably would not repurchase, just going to use whatever is left because it's great as an eye cream and it has SPF.
I love this concealer. I am skinny and am always lacking sleep and the bags under my eyes become very prominent. I found this as I was looking through my makeup organizers. Ever since I have fell in love. It has phenomenal staying power. It covers up my dark circles without any problems. It my HG for under eye concealers.
Eh, I don't know why I used this product for so long. My dark circles can get pretty bad sometimes and this did not do much for that. The staying power is not good by itself and I always had to use a translucent powder over it. Doing that magnified any fine lines I have (I am only 25!) and it looked crappy. I finally gave up on this product. I will use whatever I have left for times I will be outdoors and want just a little coverage. The packaging is good and price is reasonable. I replaced this product with Prescriptives concealer. Definitely pricier, but worth it!
This is a very good concealer with sunscreen for the undereye area.
I do need to blend it with an undereye moisturizer mixed on the back of my hand, and applying it with a little brush (I use Quo's little retractable brush for ease of application) because I have a few little lines under the eyes.
I call them laughing and living lines, so they can't be all that bad.... ;)
For my light to medium olive skin color, the Medium 15 shade is perfect; if I want just a little more "lift", I combine with Physician's Formula Circle control concealer in Yellow (see my review). The other Neutrogena shades are too light, except I sometimes mix in Buff 09 in the depths of winter.
Added 2012: I have found a new use for it: as a concealer it works wonders for my rosacea-ravaged skin, with the Medium 15 having yellow undertones which neutralize the redness on and around the nose, and the chin area. The fact that it has SPF 20 is a bonus, and the texture is very skin-like, not flakey at all.
I took 1 lippie off for the fact that it does not have an applicator for precise placement, and now have switched to Neutrogena Healthy Skin eye brightening perfector, which has a perfect brush applicator, and a higher SPF as well (see my review).
Suprisingly, this product is really great...doesn't last all day though but it does cover up my dark circles. Will definitely re-purchase!
