I've trusted this concealer for years! It is great for blemishes and hyper pigmentation, providing medium to full coverage. However, like others have said, it isn't the best for under eye circles. It does, however, brighten up your eyes. I can easily find this when I need more, the price is right, and the packaging is convenient for traveling (though maybe not the most hygienic). The color selection is pretty good and the texture of the product is smooth. A great basic concealer, especially for a first time concealer user. :)

I used this stuff for years, it wasn't my HG, but definitely better than anything I'd tried (up to and including 50 and 60 and even 70$ concealers from high end brands, waste of money, frankly), as well as multiple drugstore concealers. The reason I liked it for so long was the consistency and the texture of it. I used it throughout highschool during my awful cystic acne/Accutane phase, where my skin was very oily, then very dry, and just a mess everywhere. It is very creamy, has good coverage, and stayed put some days...I would say for about 4 hours it's okay, unless it's crazy humid or hot out (but I'm Canada, so that's like only a month or two out of the year, not a big concern for me). The reason I ultimately switched (well, other than the fact that I mayyyy have found my HG concealer, a bit early to tell yet), is first of the all, the colours suck. Just awful, WAY too pink, or orangey, and quite dark. I'm not a pale person and I had to go to the lightest shade so it wouldn't look weird, but again, very very very pink. My skin is very yellow toned, so I had to wear foundation over this to cover that fact up, and I despise foundation, so I was never happy about that. Otherwise it looks like I had pink blotches everywhere. That was my biggest gripe. The coverage was good, but not perfect. My skin is actually pretty good these days, but I'd have to put two or three layers on to cover my spots/redness, which runs the risk of getting cakey (which it has on some days). Since my skin is more dry than oily these days, I also find it looks awful on dry skin. It looks fine at first, but as it dries, it accentuates the patches and flakes like crazy...and this is after exfoliating and moisturizing. I would often redo my entire face at work (washing and moisturizing) just because the dryness looked so much worse than it actually was. For the price however, if it kind of matches your skin tone and you're not super duper dry, it's a decent drugstore concealer. It does the job it promises to do, and much better than other drugstore concealers, was super easy to apply when I was first dealing with covering up acne and was a makeup noob, and it never ever broke me out or aggravated my existing pimples, but the colour choice and dryness issue became too much for me. It has been faithful to me, but I've finally found something that works much better. (If you're wondering - Vichy Dermablend Foundation Stick, wonderful stuff).

Blargh, I really wanted this to work for me! I'm fair with yellow undertones and bad dark circles, and I had hoped this product could save me. I bought it in the 'Neutralize' shade, but it was just weirdly light and greyish yellow on me. Unfortunately the rest of the colours had pink and salmon undertones which weren't going to work. The formula itself isn't bad, good coverage and pretty smooth (but I found it a bit drying). I love the packaging, how simple and quick it is to use. Unfortunately our love just wasn't meant to be.
If you find a colour that matches your skin, I bet it's great! However, for my neutralizing needs I now go to Maybelline Dark Circle Treatment in Neutralizer, which is a more flattering shade.

Moderate coverage, creamy and blendable

I really love this. I am very fair-skinned so use the the neutralizer shade. It covers my dark circles without a cakey residue. In the past I used another CG product (I don't remember what it was, but it came in a container with a sponge wand applicator), but I had often had milia around my eyes. I don't have that issue with this product. Convenient packaging too.

I really like this concealer. It covers my dark circles well, and looks very natural. It doesn't feel heavy or look cakey. I haven't had any issues with it creasing or drying out my skin. Despite being in a stick form, it is creamy and easy to blend. I would consider it medium coverage. It also works good on blemishes.

I love this concealer! It is so smooth and creamy. The best part about it is that it just glides on and you don't feel it on your skin. I am in 715 Medium and I bought this because I had a coupon for Cover Girl and needed a new concealer. I actually read the reviews on this website before purchasing and I am so happy I did. My severe dark circles look so bad and this concealer perfectly covers them up. For maximum and long lasting coverage, I use two layers. My freaking dark circles make me look like a zombie and I am so insecure. When I have on the concealer, I look much better and the color matches me perfectly! I dont even use powder because it doesn't crease AT ALL :) It is an amazing product that I need to repurchase again soon. You need this one!

In a previous post I said I didn't use any other covergirl cosmetics, but I forgot about this! How could I forget this?!?! I use Revlon colorstsay in buff as my foundation. OK, so this is how I do it. You know those stupid, red zits that simply won't cover up with ANYTHING?!?! Well, after I put my foundation on and let it set, I take the very tip of this concealer and "dot" it on the blemish. I never blend it, move it, smudge it or anything like that. Just dot and go. It is amazing at covering any imperfections. My only gripe would be that if you accidentally brush against it, it will come off. That's why I carry it with me :-) I can just dab the spot again and go. Love this stuff!

It's cheap price but really effective.
I got this from supermarket at half price $5, works well, and last long.
I like the lip stick style, easy to apply and look natural

Short & simple... INFORMATION : AquaCurrent Science and botanicals like ginseng, vitamin E, and chamomile will help your skin look smooth. PROS: good price range. ( around 5-7 $ Canadian ) very smooth texture, effortless to blend into skin. Covers dark circles AMAZINGLY. CONS: doesnt have enough coverage to cover up acne and acne scares, can clump on to dry skin. Doesn't come in many shades. ( hard to find yellow undertone shades). PERSONAL THOUGHTS: I really thought this concealer would be super hydrating for my dry skin but instead in started to flake around my acne plus didn't cover them either, maybe a little bit if redness but that's all, it covered my dark circles no problem, in fact that's the only reason why I still use this concealer. It's very easy to blend...but a little bit too easy... I have to do up to 2-3 layers to get my desired coverage. Overall I wouldn't repurchase this concealer.
