Wow, this product is really bad. It's really dry on my skin and settles in fine lines and dry spots, making it look even worse. It's a fight to spread it out on my skin, as it's so dry. And clumpy.

Another great concealer from Collection 2000. Whereas the Lasting Perfection one is better for covering blemishes, this one is great for the under eye area. I have tried lots of these concealer pens and this one is the most illuminating. Again, my only downside is that the writing wears off the side of it.

I have tried numerous concealers, including Clinique, YSL and Estee Lauder to name a few, and this is by far the best. Not only is it so much cheaper, but it actually comes in a shade that is pale enough for my skin tone. All the other concealers I have tried are either too pink or too orange, and look ridiculous. This one doesn't cake or feel too drying and goes on brilliantly! The packaging is similiar to the Clinque pen, and of the same quality.
I will definitely re-buy - dont be put off by the brand!
EDIT: I have discovered that the packaging on this is AWFUL - all of the black ink on the outside of the tube has turned sticky and is rubbing off on the contents of my make up bag. Disappointing, but wrapping sellotape round it will do the job.

I love this product! I have quite dark circles under my eye, and my eyelids are also quite dark. With a touch of this patted onto the skin, they disappear! Its great coverage, lasts all day and its cheap! The packaging looks a bit cheap and it rubs off a bit, but that doesn't bother me in the slightest and it shouldn't bother you either! xx

I bought this product by mistake. I meant to get the C2000 lasting perfection concealer. Let me say this is a very welcome mistake!!! I am so impressed with the way this product melts into my skin & hides the visible pores on my nose which no concealer I've tried thus far has achieved! The applicator brush is handy & easy to use. The only shame of this product is the packaging, for the price I really can't complain too much. Will definitely repurchase!

This concealer has a really great consistency - not too light and runny, so it doesn't have enough coverage - but also not too thick and paste-like, so it looks like you're Wearing Makeup.
However, the problem is that it just doesn't last: My eyes look great immediately after I've applied this stuff, but just a few hours later they are kind of ashy looking, from the dark circles showing through.
I use #2 Natural.

really good concealer and highlighter in one! i bought the 'natural 2' shade which blends well with my pale skin tone, and the price is an absolute steal for the quality! I blend it by dabbing gently with by ring finger, if you rub it you'll just wipe it off.
- cheap to buy
- hides under-eye dark circles fantastically! (and might I add, hides those first fine lines of aging...*sighs*)
- good range of shades
- covers blemishes quite well
- also doubles as a highlighter as well
- lasting coverage, I've found it doesn't clump in the eye-creases either
- you don't need to use to much to provide coverage, so the acctual product itself will last quite a long time (making the cheap price even better!)
- the product works as a click pen with a brush tip, so you'll be able to use every last drop and apply it with out much mess (although the coloured plastic tube does make it quite hard to see how much you have left, transparent plastic would be better)
- just one, the packaging definitely needs a better 'shade' description as it's VERY easy to get the wrong colour for your skin tone (i've done it, and then had to take it back to get the right one) the shades currently say - i think? - naked 1, natural 2, and glow 3 with a slightly varying background like a light green colour or a yellow colour (which are very easy to get mixed up!)

I bought this in shade 'natural 2' which is a great match for my pale skin. I use it under my eyes but find that it dries out into my creases and becomes quite cakey.
I have also tried it on spots but it doesn't cover them.

So I bought this initially because I wanted a highlighter, not a concealer, yet it turned out that my concealer at the time was lighter than this product, so I switched to using Illuminating Touch under my eyes and my other concealer (2 true of all things) to highlight. Although Illuminating Touch does conceal my dark circles, it does emphasise the fine lines and creases under my eyes and look really cakey. Maybe it's how I'm applying it, but I do like how well it conceals.

I really, really like this concealer!
Bought it by chance as I was/am on a concealer hunt and tried out loads in boots. I liked the colour (I bought nr2 natural) and the fact that it's supposed to highlight (I used YSL years ago and really liked it then, and was searching for a cheaper alternative).
Well I have to say it does cover really well, it stays on and does not crease or cake. And it definitely does highlight! I did have to take one lippy off though as it is actually too light for me (and the next shade is unfortunately too dark). I have started to use it under my foundation and this works very well and makes my circles nearly disappear (and they are very, very dark).
I will definitely buy this again. It's not my HG concealer (it could be if they had some more shades!) but it's one of the best I have used.

I bought this product a few days ago after seeing it pop up on a few beauty blogs recently. I was excited by the reviews and the prospect of owning a concealer that works (especially from a really inexpensive brand), but honestly I was a little skeptical as to whether it really was as good as they all claimed. I've been searching for a great concealer for some time now, I've tried so many expensive "highly recommended" ones including benefit boi-ing, laura mercier, nars, actually, just last week I bought the bobbi brown corrector and also the concealer set which cost about £40 altogether. I can't believe I wasted my money buying so many different kinds, and traipsing round department store counters, when this was just sitting there in tescos the whole time!
My mind was BLOWN after using this. I can't believe how good it is and that it's made by Collection 2000, of all brands. I have really prominent dark circles and this stuff completely covers them and makes me look wide awake and so healthy (and i'm actually really sick right now so that is one hell of a challenge, ha). It feels lovely and just glides on and blends perfectly with the skin and you need such a small amount. it doesn't crack or crease at all (which is exactly what the bobbi brown one did, it settled in all the tiny fine lines under my eyes and made me look wrinkly... which is not a great result for a 21 year old). I also used this on a few blemishes around my jaw line and again, works great. Every other concealer i've used seems to sort of, settle on the blemish and look really.. dry? (I can't really explain this very well, haha, but they made the spot look more noticeable anyway) whereas this stuff just glides over the blemish so smoothly and makes it blend into the skin around it perfectly.
I am so excited by this product, I'm going to recommend it to everyone I know, especially my mum who uses YSL touche eclait religiously even though she admits it doesn't do what she'd like it to! amazed, amazed, amazed.

I think that I've finally found my HG concealer in this! It's amazing for both my blemishes and dark under-eye circles, providing the right amount of coverage without looking unnatural or caked on.
Under-eye wise this does not fully conceal them, which is okay as I have very noticeable dark circles so I wouldn't expect it to. However, it does lessen how obvious they are whilst most importantly brightening the heck out of them so I look so much more awake.
For blemishes this has probably the best coverage I've ever come across. It is thick enough to cover any spots I might have but at the same time it blends into the skin so easily as if to make my skin look really flawless <3
The only issue I have with this is that I find the click pen unhygienic if you're going to be applying it directly on spots but I guess an alternative would be to twist the pen so the concealer comes out and then just pick it up with your finger instead of applying the bristles of the pen directly onto the blemish. I'm not marking it down for the packaging as I think you can get around the hygiene issue.
This concealer was an absolute steal at £5.00 (probably the cheapest concealer I've ever tried, but also the best) and the colour fits me well (I'm the lightest shade in every foundation and Naked blends nicely on me). However, I was lucky to get a good match as the colour selection is only 3 shades which is a bit disappointing.
It should also be noted that this is a dupe for the YSL Touche Eclat (which I previously owned, but still prefer this to it).
I will definitely repurchase this, I am so happy with it x
