I like everything about this concealer; packaging, color and spf 25. formula applies like a dream, it is creamy and will dry to an aory powdery feel, I like these twist up click pens way more than those doe foot applicators, as it is much more sanitary. sunscreen ingredients are physical, not chemical which is another plus. I don't have sensitivity towards chemical but I like that these reflect uv days rather than absorb if is expensive though, I think it is the same price as getting a bottle of this foundation :(

This is delivered using a pen and the "click" system. I could not get the delivery right on this - or maybe it's supposed to be this way....it was runny. On first try, it completely ran down the pen on onto my hand. So, I tried shaking it to "mix" the product, then cautiously clicked until I saw some product - still runny. I spent a couple of days trying to figure out the best way to get this on my skin, and using a beauty sponge (both dry and damp techniques) applied to my undereye area and inner eye (nose) area. I could not get it to blend well, and it was a bit "flaky". I tried mixing it with my Olay Regenerist Serum (applied on top of Olay spf 50) which is my usual routine, but no go.

This is a fail for me.

This review is for the eye perfector in light. I really don't need a "concealer", even at my age. I have no problems with dark circles or puffiness. I did purchase this for an eye brightener. I feel it does an excellent job at that. I feel that I look younger and more awake with this. I absolutely love it and will definitely re-purchase!

Not sure I will buy this again. It is very drying and the coverage is so so. I do like the applicator. It helps to carefully cover the eyes

I usually use Maybelline's Dream Lumi in Radiant, but have not been able to find it so I bought this. It's not as brightening as the Lumi, but the added SPF balances that out for me. If you found the Lumi too brightening for you, then you'd probably love this. Same type applicator, twist/clicker brush, & consistency of product, thin. This isn't a true concealer, but it's good for brightening the under eye area if you have shadows. Kills the shadows. I really like it & have been reaching for this over my Lumi...I still have some product in my present one. It gives a more natural brightening effect.

I'm not a big fan of Neutrogena, but my friend recommended this, so I tried it. It was okay, and it did some coverage, IT IS NOT A CONCEALER, so don't expect lots of coverage. It is simply a brightening for eye. I would recommend you to buy the Rimmel London concealer and highlighter.

I found the best way to use this product is to put it on over my foundation, after I put the product on I let it set for 40 seconds to 1 min then I use my middle finger to press it in or pate it in. I found out if I rube the product it would completely disappear and take my foundation with it too. If you have serious dark bags then I suggest you use a more coverage conselaer then use this product over so it can brighten your face. If you are just looking to look more awake in the morning and to just brighten your eyes this is a good product, I would repurchase this product again. I also didn't have any break out using this product and it lasts a long time on my face without a primer. I did not find this product to br cakey at all and it was not orange. The price was a draw back for me but the amount of product you get is really good I use it everyday for 3 months and I haven't ran out yet.

I love the packaging, the brush applicator is perfect for concealer. It's a better concealer than the "lipstick" types I've used. But it just doesn't do the job for me, either coverage or brightening. I would say it makes my dark circles look a little less bad, but still bad. And I did get a good match to my normal skin tone with Fair 05.

I bought this in "Fair" - - seriously, it is *so dark*, I wonder if the product I got is mis-labeled? I am extremely porcelain pale, especially this time of year (January) For reference, if I used MAC (which I don't) I would be the lightest NC 10 or 15. This Neutrogena pen makes me look sallow, bruised and almost green under my eyes. Not brightening in the least. If you are very fair, I would run far away from this pen. I will stick with Loreal Magic Lumi Pen, much better for porcelain skin and gives a brightening effect.
I think I wasted about $10 or $11 on this, so I'm bummed out. I tried mixing it with some lighter concealers I have but it simply makes me look sick.

The texture is actually not bad, sort of a thicker consistency, and if you don't pile on too much it doesn't settle in lines/make you look wrinkly. The pen itself is quite fat compared to other brightening pens I have tried and you get 4.9 grams of product which is alot. Maybe this justifies the price.

Finding an under eye concealer has been nothing short of a challenge for me. I have tiny little lines that any concealer I have previously tried has emphasized them to the point where they look like full blown wrinkles. I was trolling the drugstore before work one morning and picked this up on a whim.

Price: I always felt like Neutrogena was a middle ground between drugstore and high end with its pricing. It is definitely on the pricier side of drugstore products. This cost me 13 bucks I think... so yeah, expensive for drugstore.

Shades: I believe there are three or four shades of this. I am pretty light and I am the shade "light" in this (2nd to lightest). Definitely a rough buy for people with darker skin tones, but, then again, you are supposed to go a couple shades lighter on under eye concealer so you still might be able to get a shade that fits.

Packaging: I really love the packaging of this product. It comes in a twisty pen with a brush on the end of it where the product comes out. Not too much is dispensed at one time so it is very controlled. It is coated in metallic silver, so it looks really high end. I've had mine for 4 or 5 months maybe and it seriously looks like I used barely any, though I use it every day.

Formula: Loving the formula. It's not a creamy texture, I would call it more of a thick liquid. It is blendable and doesn't seem to settle into my fine lines, which is what I was really searching for in this concealer. It covers pretty well, but, to be honest, my dark circles aren't too bad so I can't fully vouch for the coverage but it does the job for me.

Overall, I would HIGHLY recommend this concealer if you can get over a semi-high price tag for a drugstore product and can find a shade that you're happy with!
