I love this concealer. It covers well and is fairly hydrating. It also matches my skin color perfectly. I would highly recommend!

Loving it! Im a concealer whore. I've been using high end opaque concealers (MUFE full cover/amazing cosmetics/mac prolong wear/kat von d tattoo) and numerous drugstore concealers for years to cover up my awful dark under eye circles. I used to literally spend over 5 minutes to use a brush and dab out with sponge applicators etc. I tested this out on an "off day" where I just applied it directly from the lipstick shaped tube and patted it out with my ring finger + lightly set it with my hg maybelline dream matte powder that never cakes. It brightens up my under eye area and makes me look awake! However, it settles into my fine lines quickly if i don't set it enough, which is not the biggest issue since a little bit of my dream matte powder on my tiny sonia kashuk contour brush goes a long way. Pretty sure It's not as opaque as my expensive concealers but for $8 it works so well. Would definitely repurchase!

Having run out of my coveted MAC Select Cover and no MAC store nearby, I opted to try this. I don't use concealer under my eyes because it never looks right, it's always "makeupy" looking. But I do use it to cover the odd blemish. Anyhoo this worked well, I just need a tiny dab and blend. It didn't make my breakout worse and the blemish stayed covered, unlike some concealers that slide off during the day. For reference I am NW20 and combination skin, I used the Fair shade. Oh, and it didn't oxidize either, which is good. Stayed the same color all day until I washed it off. I liked it.

I have used tons of concealers and this is one of the worst. I wanted to love it. But if you are fine lines and wrinkles and plan on using this under your eyes...beware. No concealer has EVER creased so horribly on me than this one. After only 30 minutes, this had settled in my fine lines under my eye area and it looked awful. Will not recommend or repurchase.

Blends easily and is definitely creamy. Brightened up my under eye area very nicely without looking cakey or feeling heavy. I applied straight from the tube and then blended out with a brush/my fingers and set with powder.

Blends well with skin tone and blends well in general!!

I love this concealer! The Fair/Light shade works so perfectly for my NC20 skin. The thing I like most about this is that is works for both my undereye circles and blemishes. It blends really easily and does not get too cakey if I put on a second layer under my eyes. The texture is very creamy, especially for a stick product. It is not a heavy-duty concealer, so I would not recommend it for someone with very dark undereye circles or severe acne, but if you need a good simple concealer that does "double duty," this is a great product. I have to use a "primer concealer" like HC Glamoflauge underneath if I have a really bad breakout, but this also works well over it. It is also less expensive than the other CoverGirl/Olay products, making it very affordable. The only thing I dont like about this is the somewhat flimsy packaging. It looked a little grimy after just one day and the tube feels light, but it's a drugstore product, so you can't expect the heavy, luxurious packaging of more expensive brands.
If you're in the market for a drugstore/inexpensive medium coverage concealer, this is the best of the products I have tried over the years. I will definitely repurchase when I use up this tube.

I was surprised when I tried this product. I was expecting a dry stick and instead I got a creamy and smooith concealer which is really easy to apply and covers undereye circles really well ! I apply directly from the tube but then blend with a concealer brush !

This is fairly creamy and works very well with dry under eye areas. I need a decent amount of coverage (medium-full) and this is more of a medium. I like how it doesn't cake on the skin. It covers broken capillaries around my nose too. The only cons I could think about this was that it disappears within the day. We're talking maybe 4hrs of coverage and it's gone. The other part is that it doesn't cover redness, acne or, redness caused by acne. So it's not for all over. Just the eyes and some broken capillaries. I'll keep it around for good days when I just need to do my under eyes. I'm on the fence. If they could have gotten this to last longer and cover acne, I'd forever buy it.

Saw this item at drugstore, read about reviews with "balm" and Non-drying concealer. I was very intrigued and wanted to give this a shot, and I AM VERY VERY HAPPY THAT I DID. I have very dark, blue/purple dark circles, - olive skin and I wanted something smooth to conceal. This is the bomb !! I loved it. Its very smooth and creamy and does not cake or crease in my lines. I pat under my eyes with my ring finger and it blends GREAT !!! I really love this and its smoothness and will continue to use this item as I really like how it conceals. Blend and set with powder, this is really making me a happy happy person. Does not leave a raccoon look either.

I bought this on a whim because I have also tried many concealers with not much luck. Either they don't cover properly or are too cakey. This is really creamy and not drying. If I'm in a rush I can use this on the trouble spots on my face, blend and I'm good to go. Plus the price point is really reasonable. I will be buying another to keep in my purse to have on hand for touch ups.

Unfortunately for me most concealer sticks/creams just don't work for me. So frankly I probably shouldn't have bothered trying this out. My favorite consistency for concealers is liquid. I tried this in the shade Light which matched my NC30 skin pretty close. On application it did feel creamy like a balm and smooth. However it was just too creamy for me that it creased under my eyes and looked cakey. I applied it straight from the tube, fingers and brushes and also setting it with powder. I had a little bit of redness on the sides of my nose and it was fine but it didn't last very long and it just felt heavy to me. I guess this concealer is better for normal to dry skin? But for my Combo like skin it didn't work well at all.

This is a great drugstore concealer. It has medium to full coverage, doesn't crease under the eyes, blends well into the skin and has wonderful staying power. And I'm a girl that's addicted to MAC Studio SPF 35 Concealer.

I'm surprised there aren't more reviews as I've seen this everywhere lately. I admit I bought it because of the bogo 1/2 off sale at CVS and I had beauty bucks/a $3 off coupon.
I got light medium and the color is great, it's a perfect match. A little of the product goes a long way and it's true to what CG claims, it does not drag on the skin at all.

I'm impressed by this. I really like the Covergirl & Olay Tone Rehab Foundation, and I was looking for a new concealer so I figured why not try this. I love it! It glides on like a dream and covers really well. I dont have many issues with dark circles, but I used it on dark marks and redness, and it works well. Not too expensive either.

Not impressed, was too creamy & has no staying power - blends away into nothing and has no coverage. Despite the silky creaminess it somehow did not make my eyes look younger or moisturized at all, if anything it highlighted any dry areas around my eyes. I would have returned this product if i could find the receipt, instead i just threw it in the garbage knowing that i would never ever use it again.

I am a self proclaimed concealer junkie, but only because I have yet to find the right one. This one is exactly what I've been looking for. I don't have dark circles under my eyes, but I've been looking for a concealer that will give me a nice finished, flawless and smooth look under my eyes and also brighten a bit. I own so many different concealers, from the outrageous high end (Cle de Peau) to the bargain basement (Elf), and none has delivered what I want like this new Covergirl Concealer Balm.
What sets this concealer apart is that it literally goes on like a balm. So soft, slippery, and creamy. Although I generally have oily skin, I've noticed that my under eyes are getting dry. Every concealer I put on somehow makes my under eyes look worse by showcasing, exagerrating, and magnifying tiny fine lines and caking and making my skin look scaly. This happens no matter how much moisturizer, cream, or serum I use under my eye. They all invariably cake or refuse to blend nicely. No matter how little product I use, and how diligently I pat to spread and blend, the skin texture under my eyes always looks worse with concealer than it does without.
This Covergirl does not cake or accentuate fine lines. It goes on like butter, evens out and finishes my skintone, and becomes invisible. It's a joy to put on. No tugging, no wrestling to blend, no signs of caked on scales.
I'm loving it, and it has become my favorite under eye concealer. My second favorite is the Armani Precision Retouch Concealer. That one is lovely and goes on smoothly, but isn't as moisturizing and easily blendable as the Covergirl, and requires mucho dinero.
I also own concealers by The Balm, It Cosmetics, the Covergirl + Olay swirled in a pan variety, Origins, Tarte, Maybelline Dark Circle eraser (also becoming a favorite!), Urban Decay 24/7, Laura Mercier, MUFE, and too many others to remember. I'm so impressed by this Covergirl, and my search is finally over.
This may not work for someone looking for full coverage. It will work best for those looking for light to medium coverage, and maximum moisture and skin smoothage.
