This is a really good concealer .Dosen't cake or look heavy, very natural on.I'm 56 , so I can't use anything that's going to settle into lines under eyes and this dosen't.There are loads of concealers that will cover darkness, but getting concealers for under eyed mature skin can be tricky. This one actually does the trick. I don't see a problem with the colours as others have mentioned..I have it in light/medium as recommended to me by the SA.I'm nw 15/20 in mac.The light /medium is more pink toned than the light (more yellow)But the light/medium or no 2 looks very natural and skin like on .I don't like the sponge applicator, would far prefer a tube, but I like the end result so much I would buy again. At £12, it's not too exspensive.This is one of the best for mature skin in my opinion. I've tried dior sculpt, EL doublewear, Lancome Maqicomplet, to name a few and the origins is the best of the bunch for my mature skin.

This is my HG concealer. I have been using this product since I was 15 and I'm 22 now....dang thats 7 years!!!!! I use this product in the Medium shade. What I like about this concealer is that it blends away perfectly and it hides my under eye circles. This product is great for young skin and it never breaks me out!

This concealer is like no other that I've ever tried, and I have tried many! I love that it's so easy to blend and stays in place all day. I would say that it offers solid medium coverage. It never creases and is one of the only concealers that I've found that doesn't need to be set with powder. In these ways, it is the great.... Unfortunately, the colors are terrible for yellow-based skin tones like mine (NC25/NC30). All the shades dry darker and way to pink to wear under the eye. I usually wear light-medium shades, but in this concealer my under eye area ended up a very unnatural pinkish/whitish color (even with a sheer application). The light shade dried slightly less pink, but even more white. I ended up buying the medium shade which dried to a darker and unfortunately slightly grayish tone. I so wanted to find a shade that would work for me because this concealer sits so beautifully on the skin, but unfortunately I couldn't. I had to return this product.

LOVE IT!!! This concealer is just THE BOMB!!! my first concealer ever to purchase and my favorite... Doesn't break me out, covers great, great for hiding blemishes and dark circles.... I love love LOVE it, the only thing i dont like is i got a little darker shade than i am so there is like little dots of orange here in there, but dont make the mistake I did, but the product is great for only $20, i have had it for almost a year and still have NOT ran out! definitely a good product.

Lasting power was great but it was WAY too pink for an under-eye concealer. Even worse for my yellow skin tone. I returned it. My search for a longwear under-eye concealer continues...

HG! HG! HG! I couldn't be happier with this concealer. Shade 2 Light/Medium is pretty much the exact color of my skin. Other people may find the range of shades a bit narrow, but for most people I know who wear concealer could probably find a match. I paid $16 and change for this after tax, so the product itself is only around $15 which is amazing for the quality and the amount. The lack of questionable ingredients is what drove me to it, although I had been using paraben-free Amazing Concealer before in Light Golden, which I found was great but lacked lasting power (and at $33 for the travel size the packaging of which cracked around the tip I can't bring myself to repurchase, unless they make the tube better).
This concealer dries matte a tad darker than it comes out of the tube so extra-fair beware. It covers any and all hyperpigmentation on my face with one application. I dab the doe foot applicator to the tip of a sanitized finger and apply it that way, to keep things hygenic. I find the heat from my own skin helps this blend better than a sponge. The formula does not highlight dryness at all, but rather improves my dry patches over a day of wear. The color so seamlessly blends with my skin that I can just wear this without foundation, even though my routine usually consists of at least some BB cream under it. Can't say too much how it would fare on undereye circles since I don't have bad ones and use Benefit Erase Paste under my eyes and on my lids if they look a little veiny. I imagine the formula wouldn't cause dryness on me though, since it seems to repel dryness on my blemishes and around my nostrils. Overall, I'm loving this concealer and if I ever finish it would buy again.

I needed a new concealer and wanted a liquid with doe foot/foam tip applicator. I'd used that type in the past and been relatively happy. More recently, I'd been experimenting with sticks and solids and twist-up brush styles and none really worked for me -- too orange, too dry or hard to blend or cakey, or whatever. I also needed a concealer that worked well for zits and blemishes, rather than for under eye circles. Paula B had the Origins as a pick so I gave it a shot. Perfection! I use 01 Light and it blends into my skin and looks natural while covering up zits and scars. I mostly use it on my chin. This blends so well with my skin tone that there are days I can just put some powder over it and be done -- no need for foundation. The tube/brush packaging is great, although sometimes the applicator kind of jumps out of the tube, like there's some air pressure forcing it out. I got this in the US and since I knew it would be hard to find at home, after a few days testing it out, I bought a second tube. Price was $15 plus tax which is starting to get up there for a tube of concealer compared to the cheapest drugstore brands, but this is so beyond those that it's worth it. HG.

(review from 2008) Go one shade lighter than you think you should. This is a great concealer but it does dry a bit darker. (the light shade turns slightly orange) I tend to get red spots around my chin and on my forehead that stick around for way too long. This concealer is perfect for covering them. I don't even use foundation, and it looks natural. And it stays! Not that great as an under-eye concealer, but perfect for everything else.
UPDATE (as of 2011): They have re-formulated this. I still like it, but does not blend as flawlessly as before. The finish is still matte, but super natural looking. It still dries slightly darker too, which is a problem for me this time. Once it dries it does not match my skin the way it used to. Wish the colors were not so limited, but would still recommend it.

This is probably the best concealer I've tried so far. I even compared it to the supposedly wonderful Cle de Peau concealer, and I thought the Origins Quick Hide was just as good. It's also far more reasonable in price.
It applies easily, doesn't cake on too thick, and blends well for a natural appearance, all while doing what it's supposed to deal: conceal. I've used it since 2004, and I love it.

omfg best. concealer. ever. I don't know how it manages to make & keep the face matte, but not dry and flakey and keeps its color without oxidizing. I have very dry skin with fine lines around the eyes, so I have to use extra rich cream around my eyes because otherwise my undereye area will look bone dry. But if you have oily skin, this will mattify your face and provide coverage. The ingredient list is much cleaner than your commercial brands, and for $15, I personally think it's a bargain. BUY THIS!
EDIT:: okay, so I already wrote that this is like, the BEST concealer ever in life, but I was pleasantly surprised by this concealer today even MORE. I normally don't wear makeup for a long time, I basically go to school for my morning classes, come back home and like to remove makeup right away so my skin has some time to breathe. I basically don't have makeup on for too long. Then today, I had to be out for more than 10 hours (dentist's office, grocery shopping, out for dinner, blah blah blah) When I came home at night around 11 and looked in the mirror, not only was the coverage still there, but my skin was GLOWING!!! Is that even possible? All the makeup I've used so far in my life had made my skin look worse as time goes by, but this one is special. I don't know if it has to do something with the concealer being matte and the oil that my skin produces throughout the day or whatever, but I'm freaking in love with this stuff!!! Best beauty product I've ever used in my whole life... period.

This is probably the best concealer I have ever used!
Now, admittedly, I have pretty decent skin, and not a whole lot that needs concealing. But I do have under-eye circles, and I am getting older, so I have fine lines in the eye area as well. This stuff covers the circles, brightens under my eyes a bit, and DOES NOT settle in my lines!!! LOVE!!!! And, unlike all the little brush-ended, highlighting, under-eye "pen" type products, you can feel okay using this on blemishes too. Will definitely re-purchase, and soon, since I loaned mine to my daughter and she hasn't ever returned it....

I really wanted to like this product after reading such great reviews on it. However, I found this concealer a bit too sheer and watery for my liking. It only lasted but a few hours on me and I have combination skin. Not too crazy about the color selection either. Will not be repurchasing.

I'm sure this can be a good product for some people, but for me this is just average.
First of all they need to have way more color ranges, even though I bought the lightest one it just doesn't work for me.
When I put it on it looks natural, but after wearing it about 1 hour it turns darker. So if I e.g. want to cover up some spots it actually does the opposite - higlight them!
However it workes well for hiding dark circles.

Great concealer! Medium coverage though.

Oh wow. I don't know why this product doesn't get better ratings. I think this is the concealer I've been looking for my whole life! Back in high school Revlon Colorstay Blemish concealer was my HG - same doefoot applicator, same promise of long wear. When I went to college, I found Estee Lauder's Double Wear concealer and left a review on MUA exlaiming "OMG this stuff is like Revlon Colorstay Blemish concealer on crack!!!" (or something to that effect). It was also something of the same (doefoot applicator, long wear). Now that I've graduated college and found Origins' Quick, Hide! concealer, I have to say THIS stuff is like EL Double Wear concealer on crack. This beats both the Revlon Colorstay and EL Double Wear hands down, as well as many of the other long wearing concealers I've tried and been displeased with (UD 24/7, MUFE Full Cover, Lancome effacernes, UD surreal skin, Shiseido sun protection... the list goes on and on). Not only do I think it lasts longer, but the finish is much more natural. Most "long wearing" concealers seem to only wear a long time because they dry up your skin and as a result make your skin look unnatural and ruin the texture of your skin at the same time. By time you take your makeup off your skin was in worse shape than when you put it on and you just have more to cover up the next day. It's a vicious cycle, but I digress. It is not so with Origins' Quick, Hide! concealer. It is a bit thin but creamy and therefore works great on undereye circles, discoloration, and even blemishes with a very skin-like finish. I thought this would mean it would inevitably fade off quicker throughout the day, but it proved me wrong on this count as well. It is not waterproof, as some other concealers I have tried are, but it is definitely long wearing and holds up well to heat and sweat surprisingly well. This still looked freshly applied after an 8 hour day!! What I love most is that it doesn't look like you have discoloration with concealer over it, it literally makes you look like you have perfect skin in that area. When my mom saw me this morning she said, "Wow, your skin has really been clearing up. It's glowing!" Which is hilarious because my skin has actually been on a steady decline and was most definitely not better today - the only thing I changed was using this concealer! The last few perks, because I feel like I've been raving forever now... I was pleasantly surprised again when I took off my concealer for the night, expecting to see my blemishes angrier for putting makeup all over them but they were actually on their way to healing. I was reminded that Origins is very serious about their commitment to natural makeup without questionable ingredients - in that sense I don't think this makeup was getting rid of my zits, but it was letting my skin heal them for once without further irritating the process. Last point - the price! When this got rung up it was like, $14 or something?? I've gotten so used to spending $24 or more on concealers at Sephora that this came as a major shock to me. As a result, I really feel like you're getting not only the best concealer out there, but a really great deal for the price. I am thoroughly impressed, Origins. I had never been too interested in the brand but you can consider me a convert now if all their products are this stellar!

The formula is very moisturizing and creamy. It blends in very well and helps brighten up my under eye area. My only gripe about it is, the coverage is on the sheer side. Not for someone with very dark circles, so I layer it on top of my MAC Prolong wear to brighten things up alittle.
*After playing with it little more: It helps to tap it in, in order to blend it.*

This is my favorite and only concealer. I'm only on my third tube: the first one was in the little metal squeeze tube and lasted for years, and the second was in the newer doefoot tube and still isn't gone after 3-4 years! I've heard they recently changed the formula which is not good, but I love my current tube which I bought last year. I use "Very Light" and it's the perfect shade (though I looked on the website and it doesn't seem to be made in that shade anymore - urgh). It's silky, blends perfectly, covers completely (medium coverage) and never looks obvious. I use it to cover blemishes and undereye circles and it works great for both problems. I hope I can continue to use this perfect concealer even after the reformulation.

I have dark under-eye circles that pretty much make me look like a prizefighter (one who lost the last match). This concealer works very well on them; it blends nicely and doesn't cake or get into the fine lines around my eyes. I'm very fair so I use the lightest color, which works well and doesn't make me have that "wore sunglasses in bright sun" look.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium Hair: Brunette, Straight, Fine Eyes: Brown
Great concealer with great natural coverage and creamy formulation. I bought the "medium" shade and love how it conceals my under eye dark circles and stray blemishes on the rest of my face. Does not cake up and has great lasting power all day.
Age: 18 & Under Skin: Normal, Fair, Cool Hair: Blond, Wavy, Medium Eyes: Blue
I used this for my under eye circles and it gives you decent coverage, and I really like the formulation of it. It doesn't get cakey, but when I set it with powder it does, so I believe it's just due to the powder I use with it. The main problem I have with it though is that I can't find a color that matches well. I have it in the second lightest color, but it's still a bit too dark for me, but the lightest color is really white. They need to have more color selections.
