I bought this for my under eye circles in the Vanilla, and I really don't think whether this product is worth it. It doesn't do an amazing job concealing and I didnt notice any difference from the peptides. They have another concealer that comes in a small square container that is much better and much cheaper. I think it's better to buy a good eye cream and good concealer separately, because unfortunately, this stick has neither qualities.

An expensive concealer that struggles to conceal anything and wears down very quickly given its formula. An expensive mistake!

I liked this concealer coz it is very moisturizing and it is very important to stay moisturize around the eye area to prevent wrinkles and lines.
However it does not cover much as a concealer even when I only have light dark circles, so this is only good for a natural look or use it as a base.
PS* Hong Kong is a bit more expensive than the States, around $84, so I guess not worth too much to buy it outside of US.

Being a man, I was looking for a product that would lighten my dark circles without being detectable. After searching for years, this product was recommended by THE SUBLIME AGENT on untube. I use the chamomile and when applied well, it is UNDETECTABLE ! This stuff is AMAZING ! It does NOT cover the darkness, but lightens it nicely, looks natural... men can wear it. I don't like the packaging... could be better. I will buy this product as long as they make it.

Expensive, and sadly, doesn't cover dark circles...

This product glides on either directly or with a brush, and gives that dewy, natural look, but for oily skin it is too shiny. In my case, it also did nothing for my fine lines. Also seems to disappear after a day at the office.

This is a fantastic product for under eyes. It applies beautifully, doesn't sit in any fine lines or creases and makes you look much brighter. I love it.

I have very light darkness below my eyes. I was looking for something uber moisturizing and with light coverage.
I usually use the Dior liquid concealer, which is good too but I like Chantecaiille much more.
The best attribute is that it doesn't crack into my wrinkles as the hours pass, which is what most concealers do.
$66 is crazy expensive but now I'm hooked.

OK, I have to write this review because as somebody with very dark circles, I actually find this product one of the best around.
Does it cover well? No! I totally agree with other reviewers on that one. But I actually think this product is better if you have very dark circles than if you have barely any. If you just have faint circles, you would probably find this product frustrating as it doesn't cover enough. However, I find that if I use something to completely cover my dark circles then it looks terrible and fake. I spent years searching for the perfect product which would completely cover them and yet still not look like I'd piled on the make-up. But the truth is, even with the best finish from some of the most expensive products I always found it looked wrong. This product lightens the area and smooths it slightly, moisturising it, plus it provides a very sheer coverage that looks totally natural. Yes, I still have shadows - but they are less severe, and I look healthy when I wear this. As another reviewer below says, I also find this great underneath another concealer if I feel I have to have extra coverage (Prada is one of the best I've found). If you expect your make-up to cover everything, don't purchase this. But if you want something 'invisible' to make you look a bit healthier then go fo it - it does last a long time too. Although the shades look quite close, it can make a big difference which one you choose, so do get the assistant's help - although I'm Camomile in foundations, I actually look better with vanilla under my eyes. I think its dictated by the shade of your dark circles rather than the rest of your face.

1) convenient package
2) impressive promise, unfortunately though because the coverage of this "concealer" is so sheer I don't use it much so not sure whether it would actually "lift" or not
3) very sheer coverage, people that can use this probably don't need concealers to begin with!?
I bought this to conceal my under eye dark circles, they are not very very bad but this didn't conceal anything, so I won't buy this again and I really regret getting this, quite a pricey mistake~

I know this product says concealer. I think of it as a pre-concealer. It is expensive Yikes! for such a small tube. $65.00 or such. I use chantecaille stress repair eye cream first. then this goes on. I let this set. If these 2 products have not taken care of my concerns for that day I then add future skin foundation in vanilla, not full concealer. I use this all thru the day if I see my eyes getting dehydrated. Does not cake or build up.
The color I use is vanilla. Will keep this with me.

I must have been smoking something when I bought this, but since I do use concealer faithfully and spend no $ on foundation, I felt somewhat justified in buying this. What a disappointment...it gives very unsatisfactory coverage, and is a bit too "slippery" for my skin. I tried to bite the bullet and keep using it because of the price, but after several weeks I just had to go buy something else. Ug.

When I write a review, I do my best to critique it honestly, even though it may not be something I will buy again. It may not work for me, but that does not mean it deserves a 1 lipstick. So it is with this product. As a concealer, it was useless. It does NOT cover dark circles. A long conversation with the MA at my local Neimans confirmed that. It does, however, go on like silk, erases the fine lines and brightens (for lack of a better term) the undereye area. Lovely look. I tried it in the shade Alabaster; the newest color out and now the lightest shade they offer. It did what is said it would do EXCEPT conceal my circles. If you have VERY little darkness, this would be the perfect product. Goes on smoothly, lasts, doesn't crease. Wonderful. Ah well. Not for me, I'm afraid. Must use something heavier.

My dark circles are not very dark, and this concealer gives it just the right coverage. The eye cream part of the stick makes it very moisturizing and therefore leaves the under eye area supple and also with a nice glow. Some pigments will settle into the fine lines by the end of the day but I think it's not very noticeable unless you look very closely.

Lovely, lovely product! Purchased this in Ivory and gives me the exact light coverage I need with the smoothest, most luxuriant texture. Notice the keyword is "light". If you have dark, problematic circles, this product will probably not give you enough coverage. It is a two-in-one slim stick with an outer ring of very creamy concealer surrounding an inner core of line-smoothing hexapeptide cream. Although I am 40, I don't yet have any fine lines around my eyes (except when I smile!), however, the line-smoothing cream seems really make a difference in providing an effortlessly smooth and even application. Also, I really appreciate the elegant metal case packaging, although for $63.00 I would except such.

Sylvie Chantecaille boasts (with a laugh) of Bio Lift Concealer, "You can reapply it throughout the day, and women are addicted to it because it feels good and they're like, 'Oh, it's going to keep erasing the lines!'" Well, that's truly silly, and ridiculously expensive, if women are doing such a thing, as nice as this product may be. It's moisturizing core (hexapeptide) does diminish the appearance of lines, the moisturizer does leave the concealer looking fresh all day, and its emollient shine looks subtle and natural. Those are its good points. However, this moisturizer also make the concealer sheer, so Bio Lift is not intended to cover dark circles, and it does need to be touched up by midday (preferably with a brightener applied over it). It's creaminess also doesn't hold up that well in the summer heat. Overall, a flattering concealer for drier, more mature skin, but considering its slight coverage, it's not worth the outrageous price.

I have this product in Chamomille, which is the lighter yellow-based shade. It comes in 6 shades, and I actually go up to Shea when I have a tan (the darker yellow-based shade).
This has a hexapeptide treatment core in the middle of the stick. It's a very emollient concealer, but doesn't hide very dark circles - it's not meant for that. This is the right concealer for any woman (or man) who wants to smooth out fine-medium lines around the eyes.
As a makeup artist, I am picky what I put on other people's faces. Even pickier with what I put on my own, but I have seen this work. It's almost like taking a mini steam-iron and running it over wrinkled silk - it just hydrates and smoothes out the lines. I am 35, and noticing smile lines I never had prior to this year. This noticeably adjust that problem.
Several of my friends are using it now too...
Edit: I still love this product. I have found that some days Vanilla is better for my skin tone than Camomille, and I am very fair. Not so tan this year...
I highly recommend this concealer for any woman who is noticing fine to deeper laugh lines. It's also light-reflecting, so will diffuse the look of dark circles. It won't fully dismiss them though. I just pop some Mercier Secret Brightening powder #2 over it, only where dark (not usually where the lines are) and it's perfect!
