My under eye concealer did not come with a high light, but this product was a disappointment :( awesome smell though!! Very very fruity. very sheer coverage and doesn't get cakey.

I got it its ok. The packaging i opened it today and it was snapped. It was so bizarre the way it was cracked. It doesn't give any coverage once so ever. Luckily its was only 3 dollars but that 3 dollars could have gone towards a better one. Im young but my under eye circles aren't the best.

Oh my god, this is THE BEST under eye concealer that I have ever tried!

I've have such a big problem with dark circles for years (and I'm only 21) and I have wasted so much money on trying all kinds of different (expensive!!) under eye concealers but I never found one that worked for me at all.
I was losing hope on ever looking healthy and well- rested, then I found this wonderful product. To be honest, I mostly bought it for fun because it was so cheap, and I thought "I'll just try this, and if it's like the rest then at least I haven't wasted a ton of money". And oh my god.
This was the best freakin' thing I've ever tried! I have fair-medium skin and I bought the lightest one ("fair"). It's lighter than my skin tone but that's the way it should be with this kind of product. It really brightens my "hopeless" circles and to me it sits well too. Of course you need to apply a good-quality powder on top (such as my favorite one for under eyes: Too Faced Primed Poreless) because just as ANY other concealer I've ever tried it will get in the fine lines if you don't use a good enough powder.
I haven't really felt the need to use the highlighter end of this thing because the concealer itself brightens up so much, but I'm sure it'll look really good if applied just the eye brow.

TRY THIS FIRST before buying an expensive one. Do like I did: Buy it and then if it doesn't work for you (IT WILL), then at least you haven't wasted much money!

I tried this after buying several other higher-end concealer products in my search to replace the sadly dc'd Revlon DNA Advantage undereye concealer (they now make a "spot concealer" that has the consistency of wallpaper paste, no good for under eyes), and was blown away by how this product outperformed products that cost far, far more.

This uses a doe's foot applicator container w/ an under eye concealer in one end and a white highlighter in the other. I prefer a squeeze tube, but if the stuff works, I can't complain, and this works. Both are a thin liquid. I tried Light/Glow, and thought for sure it would be too light and too pink, but the color was actually perfect for covering dark undereye circles ( I am a pale yellow/ sallow color except for wherever the rosacea has taken over - now I am a mix of red and yellow! so fun to color match!).

I was surprised by the coverage given the thin consistency. Unlike several higher end products that were all too thick and draggy, this smoothed right over fine lines and bumps w/o settling into or accentuating creases. Easy to apply, and no tugging and rubbing required! Yes, after a while it does settle a bit, but when you are pushing 50 everything does that. The difference between this and a lot of other products was that it didn't accentuate the creases right away, like some others did. No fragrance that I could detect, and this did not irritate my eyes at all.

Surprisingly, the Revlon DNA Advantage Spot concealer, the Laura Geller Real Deal Concealer, and the Laura Mercier High Coverage Concealer for Under Eye that I tried all accentuated fine lines, settled into creases much sooner than the ELF, and were all extremely thick - what is up w/ all the new THICK concealers out there for under eyes? They were all so thick they were very hard to apply - so much patting! And when a formula is that thick, and you have textural problems ( a bad IPL gave me deep, large pores and lots of crinkles and lines), the formula sits on top and skips the holes! Tugging and hard patting is no fun for under eyes. The ELF just glided right on and covered every hole and surface irregularity. It also covered dark circles AND a red spot I have near one eye far better than those other, much more expensive concealers. Everything just looked smooth and nicely covered w/ the ELF. I was really surprised at how good this looked.

I have been able to use the Laura Geller Real Deal Concealer on dark spots elsewhere on my face, and that works fine for anywhere OTHER than under the eyes. I will try that w/ the Laura Mercier as well. But as far as under and around the eyes, this ELF just blows the other concealers out of the water.

As for the highlighter, I only use it when I am doing a full mu. It's pure WHITE (not ivory, no color at all, just pure white), but it's sheer w/ a very faint shimmer, so it's fine as a highlighter on the lid. Same consistency as the concealer,much less coverage. Fine, but I don't generally use a liquid highlighter, so the highlighter is of less use to me than the concealer.

Overall, you can't beat the price or the product. Less than $10 for two products, and the under eye concealer far outperformed high end products that cost up to $30! I'm sold.

I've got to say something here. This thing is gold. I've eyed it many many times on my shopping trips to Target, thinking it's probably just a flimsy, pasty, unblendable cheap little thing I can waste $3 on. So today, after seeing some of the other positive reviews, I tried it. Woah!
I have light olive skin and the area under my eyes seems a bit lighter and thinner than the rest of my face and also has shadows from the purple veins under my skin. Lovely, I know. Well, this stuff evens everything out without looking like obvious makeup.
I smeared some on in the car on the way home, no other foundation or concealer on, and saw airbrushed glowiness looking back at me. I do have fine little lines that concealer and foundation love to get stuck in. Lo and behold, this didn't do that.
I used medium and it was indeed the perfect peachy color to cancel out purple shadows, although it looked too light at first.
To add to my problems, I've got large noticeable pores on my upper cheeks. I was able to blend this stuff right over them and create this even texture on my skin.
I'm sure this stuff won't cover the stuff that requires heavy-duty concealing, but if you just want to look like you have naturally smooth, even, bright skin under your eyes then this is your secret weapon.

I threw it away after my first use. Why?! It sucks. The concealer doesn't work well for me. It is too liquidish to be called a concealer and the highlighter is too glittery and bright. The packaging is okay, little bit cheap but it is cheap!

I conclude now that price matters a lot. I bought the highlighting kit from Makeup Forever instead and am loving it!

I was surprised to LOVE this product>yes it is sheer but that is what I want something NATURAL to cover circles under the eye area. I like the highlighter part too>just use sparingly to brighten. Easy to apply and carry, stays put (I have oily skin too) I just set with a bit of powder and go>what's not to love? Especially the price ($3.00 or so) I use the medium and just bought my 2nd today!! I love it more than my high end concealers!!

Use your eye cream first though as you should with any concealer if you are well, let's just say over 30!

Concealer is watery. Dries quickly and evenly. Minimum coverage. illuminates under eyes subtly. Does not crease. Lasts all day. Highlighter does not blend well. It looks chalky and cheap. Will not be buying this item again.

This product is pretty lame. The highlighter SUCKS. Both sides are very oily and doesnt give great coverage, my undereyes are a bit covered, just not for too long. Love elf, but hate this product.

i just bought this yesterday because there was a display of e.l.f. cosmetics on sale and this was one of the highly reviewed e.l.f. products on MUA. i like how it is more liquid than my ZA concealer so it conceals my fine lines better. i had my doubts at first about its staying power, but it lasted me throughout the entire day without having to touch up. it doesnt cake up nor make my skin look dry like other concealers ive tried before. the highlighter is just right - not too striking, but subtly makes my eyes look brighter and more alive. i think this stick may run out fast for me, but will definitely repurchase.
