When you are older , add wrinkles to dark circles and you get a double whammy of problems to hide. With this brilliant little pot of cream to powder concealer, I get to wipe out both. I am super impressed with the colour (Medium) blendabilty and setting power of this concealer. It should have rave reviews. I plan to try and buy more to stock up as I hear its discontinued but may be available on the TSC ( in Canada).
Cream to powder in one formula is amazing and I dont know why there arent more products out there like this.

This is okay. I bought two of these 75% off but wouldn't have bought it full price. It is easy to apply and blend. It makes my under eyes look much brighter but doesn't really make the darkness go away, just kind of gives it a weird look of brightened dark circles. Weird as that sounds. I also don't like that it doesn't absorb. It sits on top of your skin all day as a thick cream. Also my long eyelashes sometimes touch it and it gets mascara marks once in a blue moon. I am okay with this as I've only spend like $3 a piece, but it's definitely not worth the full price.

While this concealer is a little too dry for under the eyes, the medium color makes a great touch-up foundation to keep in your purse! I used to use BeneFit Boi-ing for the same thing, but this shade (slightly warm/yellow) is a perfect match to my skin. I will definitely buy this again!

I love that this concealer is in a pink/lilac color because it reflects light differently than a regular beige concealer would...at least that is what Carmindy always says. It is sheer and goes on smoothly with the ring finger and over foundation. It does crease and that would be the downside. I've also noticed it looks a bit cakey near the area close to my tear duct though and that bugs me a bit. I've used Benefit's Eye Bright in the past and didn't seem to notice creasing with it. But it is the only other concealer I know that has this pinkish tone to it. I'm not sure whether I'll ditch this SH version or not.

Very disappointed. Goes on dry and cakey. Not the look that I was hoping for.

Once again, totally love this product (line). I love the packaging of all the products, especially this. The concealer is smooth and creamy and covers flawlessly without looking like it's there. It blends with or without foundation and/or powder. When I wear this alone with foundation on days when I don't wear makeup and have had people come up to me to ask what kind of skin care I use. My sister has seen me now three times without any makeup but this and the foundation and each time she now asks, "yes or no?" She has no idea if I'm wearing makeup now because though my skin looks flawless it also looks completely natural and yet you don't see any makeup, not even up close! I also don't feel it at all. This line is amazing, but this was also on sale for 75% leading me to believe it's being discontinued. I'm about to start a campaign to get signatures to keep this product line alive.

Very creamy, super blendable and brightening.
The quality of this product is superb. I like using this mainly for my under eye or blemishes that are super dry as it does not crease or cake up. My under eye circles are not that bad but once I put this on I definitely look more awake. Also, I have pretty oily skin (acne-prone) and when applying this I don't feel as though it makes me any oilier nor does it give me that dead matte greyed out look either. I love this stuff!
For blemishes that are more pigmented, I use my Make Up For Ever full coverage concealer.

Wow, the reviews are all over the board on this. My two cents, I like it. I have dry skin and it doesn't dry it out. I like the color, light, and it does cover my problem areas.

I bought this concealer in "Light", and just like the foundation from this range, it's light enough for my pale skin. It has a nice consistency that works well in the under-eye area, though it is a tad powdery and you have to work quickly to blend it before it sets. I used a concealer brush (EcoTools FTW!) and it gave a nice, even application.
The coverage is not as concentrated as my Bobbi Brown concealer, but honestly, this is a very nice drugstore product. I set it with ELF HD Powder and the creasing was pretty minimal. I did try it on a couple of blemishes, and I wasn't as pleased with the results. I think it's mostly good for under-eyes. I'm still on the hunt for a good blemish concealer.

I bought the all over brightener even though the lilac color kind of concerned me.. The case broke as soon as I opened it. It didn't hide my under eye circles at all.. Someone suggested putting it on top of my foundation but it's way too purple and it shows through the powder and looks pretty weird. I did use it on a blemish and it didn't hide that either... Will not buy again

Well, I'm on my second pot of this concealer and bought a backup. I use the "All over brightener" (light pink/lilac), and it does a great job at brightening/camouflaging my hereditary dark circles.
It is sheer, so it must be applied OVER foundation to be effective. I have Carmindy's Your Skin foundation (a 5 star product for me), and the combination really works well. A little goes a looong way. I find applying it with a light touch is best. A very slight dusting of powder to set this, and the dark circles are very nearly gone. Some days, depending on sleep, are worse than others. But usually it's all I need.
I do love that this does not cake up or get all creasy under my eyes. It does not emphasize my fine lines or wrinkles. And I do not find it drying on my dry-prone skin.

This concealer is horrible! It goes on very powdery and is so cakey looking even with just a little bit used. It it such a dry cakey formula and doesn't blend out at all. So bad! Probably the worst concealer I've tried and I've tried alot!!

i absolutely love this concealer! LOVE! i used my mom's bobbi brown concealer in a peach color and i liked it enough to keep using it. it had a decent coverage and it was very blendable which i loved. however, it wore off during the day. so then i switched to Neutrogena's concealers. Two different kinds..one was the clear up acne kind the other some new thing. it doesnt matter because they SUCKED SO BAD. DONT BUY NEUTROGENA!! dont even buy there foundations..in fact when you walk into the drugstore dont even look at their products! the colors are totally off it looks patchy and dries up your skin and wears off after 2 hours? DO NOT BUY. so my mom returned the crappy for neutrogena.. for HELLO SALLY HANSEN! this might be my HG. no doubt. idk why everyone says it has no staying power b/c the color was perfect for my skintone. i have some pimples..like not red but skin color little bumps. and it evens out the color of the pimples with my skin. and it stays! i put like a light translucent powder over my face and go to school and my skin looks clean natural and perfect!

I cannot attest to whether or not this was as drying on me as it was for others because it looked so awful that I could not leave it on any longer than a few minutes. First of all, this is very light. I have light-medium, olive skin, so I bought the medium, and it was VERY fair on my skin and really difficult to blend. It looks much lighter on than it does in the packaging and in the on-shelf swatch. Also, medium was the darkest color available. The biggest problem with this, however, was that it was too cakey. It was hopelessly ugly and un-blendable on the large pores around my nose. Surprisingly, however, even on the rest of the skin, it made my small-regular sized pores look engorged my settling into them and giving my face a scaly effect. I couldn't wait to wash it off. I prefer something a little smoother and a bit less like paste.

It was time to get some concealer to cover up some blemishes and under eye circles. Did a little research and was looking for something gentle and with natural ingredients. This really did not work with my skin. Like some others said that it was pretty drying. At first it blended in nicely but as the day progressed, it made my skin flake and I have really oily skin. Will not repurchase. Product returned.

THis is a great concealer! I love the ingredients and the color, but best of all this does not crease!!! Everything else creases on me,=. I thought that my laura mercier was good, but this is much better. This looks very natural, the medium color is just perfect! This is the first thing from this line not too dry for my skin. I will not be without this concealer.

This review is for the brightener. This has a little too much lavender in it to work for my skin color. It is also sheer and needs to be applied over regular concealer or makeup or else it doesn't "brighten" at all. Can look dry. I would not buy again.

This is SO DRYING. I bought it once, and when I tried it, it was HORRIBLE. It caked and made my undereye area look like it was flaking off. Disgusting.

This concealer is very creamy to the touch ,but once you apply it to skin it is drying and does not blend well. I found it does a decent job of covering under eye circles but it's not extraordinary or anything. Tried it on a blemish and it did not cover it at all. I guess I will just have to break down and purchase BB or Benefit Erase Paste since the consensus on the board pretty much list these as HG concealers.
Age: 36-43 Skin: Acne-prone, Tan, Warm Hair: Black, Curly, Medium Eyes: Black
I hate this concealer. I bought the "all over brightener" and compared to Benefit's Erase Paste, this does not work well at all. Carmindy's concealer is not creamy. I found it difficult to blend and drying on my skin. Benefit's Erase Paste is so creamy, very easy to blend and does a wonderful job of concealing my under eye circles. I will not repurchase Camindy's products.
