This concealer can be used on blemishes as well. It doesn't cause blemishes and covers very well!

Bought this to set my under eye concealer but instead it's replaced my concealer. Now I only use this under my eyes and the coverage is great! No I don't have very dark circles but I only use a tiny amount but I could seeing using a bit more it it working for dark circles. It matches my skin great and I use it to cover acne spots too, it's amazing!

I was doubtful to try a powedered concealer. I should have went with my instincts. This stuff lays like dust on top of my undereye circles. It looks like I tried to use a powdered foundation to cover dark circles, and they show right through. I tried using it in conjunction with the Stroke of Light, but combined they just further highlighted my undereye flaws. I was really disappointed because it was a pricey purchase, and because I was really hoping to find natural products that worked as well as (or worked better) than my chemical-laden drugstore products.

I like this powder and use it as both concealer/eye shadow base. The color suits my skin tone perfectly and my eyes look well rested indeed with this on. Unfortunately it creases on me, settles into the fine lines and gets cakey easily. I keep using it as no-eyeshdow eyshadow on lazy make up days, but I don't think I will repurchase.

I LOVE this product, despite the fact that I cannot wear it anywhere near my eyes.
I am 44, and though I look pretty darn good, I do have fine lines beneath my eyes and some crepiness on my eyelids. Most of the time, it's very minimal. But this realy magnifies those issues. No matter how lightly I apply, it makes my under eye area look crepey and dry and yes...old.
BUT...it is honestly wonderful for concealing other issues on my face, such as post acne hyperpigmentation (yes, even though I'm 44...sigh) sun spots and freckles. Liquid and cream concealers have never performed the way I want them to, but this is quite the little workhorse. Just a dab on a flat concealing brush pushed gently onto the mark or blemish and it literally disappears. It never gets that cakey look, and it never melts or smears, which means the finish stays natural and fresh for hours.
On my skintone, it also has brightening properties, so I can use it as a very subtle matte highlighter.
When I was younger, I relied on this and Bisque for undereye concealing with very satisfactory results, so if you still have fairly wrinkle free eyes, it will probably work very well for you. But if you've purchased this for that purpose and then found that it isn't kind to mature eyes, know that it can still be useful in a lot of ways.

I use this to set other products that I use under my eyes. It adds some extra concealing over my dark circles and does seem to brighten my undereye area. I like that the sifter jar for this comes with a cover so this doesn't get messy when I throw it in a make-up bag.

Well, I ask for a sample from the counter so I cannot say anything about price and packaging since I didn't buy it. For product itself, overall I will say it is good. I put it on the top of my undereye concealer and it did make me look like awake. But I won't buy it just because if you didn't moisturize enough it look caky and fake.

I got this for Christmas & Im loving the setting/glowing factor of this guy!! No sparkle or glitter, which is a must for me. I love the aftereffect of this lil guy. I do my undereye concealer(maybelline dream lumi) and my regular concealer around my nose(maybelline fit me) then use a smaller fluffy brush get some of this product and dust under my eyes. Loving this lil gem. Really makes my eyes look awake and pop! Great investment.

I absolutely LOVE this stuff and cannot be without it. I am very pale with yellow/olive undertones. I have herediatry very, very dark eye circles (under and above my eyes). I cannot go without a full coverage concealer. Now that I am also getting older I struggle with full coverage and not showing my eyes creepiness where some products settle into fine lines. I also have puffy bags under my eyes due to bad allergies (which also don't help my dark circles). I have finally found my HG routine to hide those dark circles, brighten my eyes, significantly diminish my bags, last all day, AND not make accentuate my fine lines/makeup settle into creases.
First use a good eye moisturizer. One that will completely be absorbed into skin but leave only a small amount of moisturizer feel left on it for just a few mintues before being competely absorbed, but not too much. I personally use Mario Badescu's Hyaluronic eye cream. I apply it to both the top and bottom eye area but not too close to the lash line or tear ducts (as the products heats like most products it can melt a little and run into the eyes causing watery eyes).
Second within a minute or two of applying my moisturizer I apply Bare Minerals correcting concealer (the creamy one) in light 2 (the one with warm undertones) with a concealer brush to make sure that I achieve full coverage but not too thickly.
Third I set it with the Bare Minerals pressed translucent powder (the Ready Touchup Veil). This powder is very finely milled and truly translucent. Being that it is pressed I am able to set the concealer more completely with the sponge. (Granted I replaced the sponge that comes with this with a cellulose round sponge for better application). This allow my concealer to set without creating a clumpy, chalky, creasy, creepy mess.
Final step - I used Bare Minerals Well Rested concealer and the Bare Minerals (of course any small, very fine size for precision application concealer brush will work). I apply the Well Rested at my inner corners and blend down my under eye area about a fingertip depth down. Then I apply a thin later at the ridge just below my bags to bring the thin area forward and blend it in somewhat but not too heavily. Just like the illusions used in art. Dark makes an object appear to recess, light makes an object appear to come forward. by doing this the size of my bags diminish significantly and some days (when my allergies aren't as bad) they appear to not be there at all after I apply my make up this way.
Hope you find this helpful!

I absolutely ADORE this product. I have very, very pale/fair skin (to the point that I'm almost as white as paper..) and my dark circles are horrendous! Its all I even notice after I take my makeup off, and this concealer does WONDERS. I first use my Covergirl Neutralizer as a base, then I apply this on top! The Neutralizer helps tone down the color a tiny bit, but then this concealer gets rid of everything else! I find that if you don't use proper application (its different depending on how your eye sets I've noticed) it'll settle into fine lines... but if you apply it correctly, its wonderful! I absolutely LOVE this stuff! As for the packaging, I absolutely adore it. Just tap a little in the lid which gives you the perfect space for deciphering the amount of product you want to use. Love, love, love!
