I get why this is so popular...it stays where you put it (i.e., doesn't slide around), has the right amount of opacity, and truly lasts! My eyes are very deep set with dark circles underneath and my face is very angular. Consequently, concealer is my desert island product of choice. And I don't mess around -- it had better deliver! If it's too thin, greasy, pink toned or just plain mediocre, it goes into the trash or I give it away. My entire appearance depends on it. Up until now, I've relied on a combination of Bobbi Brown corrector w/a rotating arsenal of liquid concealers on top.

I bought this out of curiosity since it consistently makes all the "best" lists you see online/in magazines. It didn't disappoint! I bought it in Custard, which I was afraid might be a tad too dark (I'm somewhat fair with yellow undertones), but it looks great. Yes, you have to work fast upon application because it sets quickly (which I happen to like about it). I do one eye at a time and use my ring finger to blend (I use on my lids, too). I don't even need to use the BB corrector first with this product to get a good result. I should mention that I always moisturize prior to applying. I haven't had any problems with it caking or looking too dry.

Does it cover my circles 100%? No. Does it make a dramatic difference to my overall face? Yes. Is it better than the vast majority of concealers I've tried/used since I was 14 years old? Absolutely.

Initially when I purchased this product, I was in love. It made my under eye circles disappear, brightened the area and did not crease. However, I lost it so I purchased another tube but the glory was gone, the application was patchy, didn't cover my hyperpigmentation at all and creased no matter how I set it. I tried baking and it started caking up.

I really don't know what happened there.

Settles into wrinkles. I am mature and had been using a Dior concealer, which is far more forgiving for eyes that have lines in which product can 'settle' - This is a good concealer ( hype works..) but, it is a bit dry and definately NOT first choice for mature eyes. I applied it carefully and looked a few hours later and *gulp* every single line was neatly 'enhanced'.
Never again!

I bought this creamy concealer because I was told it was one of the "Best Concealers in the Market" by a Sephora employee. So, it was actually an IMPULSE BUY at the moment because I really wanted to buy a new Concealer that has a reputable name and that would actually work for once. I had been using the MAC concealer for about seven years because it actually worked, but I was finding that I had to re-apply some concealer almost every hour when I was out and about. So, that's why I ended up buying this Nars concealer. I always use primer before starting my makeup routine. I applied my primer and then this concealer and let it sit there for about five minutes on my face. Then I took my beauty blender and packed it on nicely under my eyes and other spots on my face which need some brightening up.

So... I would give this product 3.5/5 rating but there is no option for that on here. I like it because I don't need to re-apply every hour. It's more like re-application of my Mac concealer after two hours I applied the Nars one.

Anyhoo, I would recommend this to anyone who wants to try one of the "BEST CONCEALERS IN THE MARKET TODAY" ;)

I keep trying different concealers to see if there is something better than my reliable stick concealer. This one I got because it has a different applicator (spongey stick thing attached to the lid). It is okay, althoguht I don't like the idea of someone touching it to their face, then putting the aplpcator back in the container. If you use a pallett it should be okay. Coverage is medium, and the consistency is pretty light and easy to spread where needed.

Immediate HG. Truly feel like its radiant and gives my under eyes -but like a reviewer here said it works for blemishes as well. I wouldn't say it works BETTER for blemishes but is just easier to apply. It doesn't crease after setting but you should really set it as soon as you apply it or else there's no way around the creasing.

If you're the type that likes to apply concealer heavily under your eyes or likes that real glam brightening look then maybe you'd find the Tarte Creaseless Concealer as a better fit (i'm only saying this because some reviews said they had a problem with this). But all in all this is a great product, and I really like the applicator because I can control what i'm using (I dislike using a brush to apply concealer) and I prefer it over having to squeeze it out of a tube. It's something I know i'm going to repurchase and I will also be purchasing a lighter colour as well for some brightening, we'll see how it goes!

I could live without this product for undereyes (I've had decent results with Maybelline fit me if I moisturize first), but I really rely on it for covering blemishes. Vanilla is the best match to my skin tone that I've ever used, the formula doesn't flake on dry spots, and I can blend it flawlessly using a small brush or buff out the edges with a beautyblender. Its like magic--completely disguises any spots. I'm also a sucker for NARS packaging.

I held out on buying this product for years due to the fact I was rather content with my Maybelline Dark Circle Eraser Concealer, but it is no longer cutting it with my ever darkening circles. I made the decision to go for this concealer, NARS is one of my favorite brands and with all of the hype this concealer has, it seemed like the perfect choice. After dropping $29 dollars on a concealer (something I seem to go through the fastest,) I was hoping to use a minimal amount of product or see astounding results, this was sadly not the case.
Lets first address the biggest issue I have with this product, the packaging. It is in a standard tube, something a lipgloss might come in, with a dome applicator that is unbearably hard/rough. Seeing as this is marketed as something you would use under the eyes the fact the applicator is so harsh for such a delicate area is a bit confusing to me. On top of the rough applicator the way it is designed only allows the smallest amount of product to come out, not even enough for one of my undereye circles. The constant struggle to try and retrieve more product just pushes more air back into the tube causing the product and applicator to dry out and become useless. Now that I have enough product on my face to give the concealer a fighting chance, it is time to blend it in. It is very easily blendable, and has a nice natural finish as soon as it is blended. The problem is, the coverage is subpar at best. It has similar coverage to the concealer I was previously using (Maybelline Dark Circle Eraser) and is triple the price. It also creases after about an hour of wear, even after setting it with powder. If this was a drugstore concealer, I might have more sympathy, but as a product that is claiming amazing results and has a high price tag, I can't overlook the packaging and coverage flaws. I personally will not be repurchasing this product and would not recommend anyone spend their money of this product.

This stuff is great for people like me who get a great deal of creasing under the eye. The coverage is medium/heavy with brightening properties. Wears nicely but I still tend to get some creasing but I swear it's just because of dry New England weather which will turn anyone into a raisin. 30 dollars for concealer is kind of insane but it really is the best.

This concealer is impressive! I use it mostly for under eye circles, but it can easily be used on dark spots or acne.

It conceals very well with little product, stays in place all freakin day, and does not crease easily.

My only gripe is the price, but I have bought this three times so far. The product is very creamy, and then dries to a skin like texture that doesn't move or transfer. I love how it blends into the skin invisibly, and doesn't look cakey.
