This is an amazing concealer! I bought it off of one of those popular wholesale makeup websites in the shade Medium. I think it may be a tad too light but with enough blending I can get away with it. I may have to order the one in dark and mix the two.
First off, I adore the packaging and the fact that you get two different concealers. Awesome.
And best thing about this concealer is that it does.not.smudge. It's almost as hard as the Dermablend pot foundation - you definitely have to warm it up with your fingers before patting it on (one of the concealers is creamy, the other is much harder and that's the one I'm referring to). It really covered my spots and though it gave me Kim Kardashian reverse raccoon eyes, it looked good and covered my dark circles amazingly (I'm used to a more NW or salmon colored concealer). I brush some MAC prep and prime loose powder over it but be advised, you may need to touch this up after a few hours.
While it didn't crease, it did kind of evaporate everywhere I put it after a 9 hour work day (and that was on top of Too Faced shadow insurace).
I'll have to find a better way to set this so it lasts longer (my skin is oily and I touch my face a lot) but so far, this is HG material!
*EDIT - decided to swap this since the color is too light for under my eyes and I found I liked my dermablend concealer better. I'd still recommend this - hoping to swap for the dark shade!

This is one of my most used products ever. I am NW15-20 and use both the light and medium version. The light creamy side for under eyes, the dry sides of both the medium and light for covering blemishes and last, the creamy side of the medium color around my lips when I'm wearing bolder lip colors.
I cannot say enough good things about this product. It is clean feeling, goes on smoothly, the dry side has impeccable coverage and the creamy version melts right into my under eye area without enhancing any fine lines.
Also, the compact is convinient and has a solid clasping sound when closing it. It even has a mirror - what's not to like? Perfect on-the-go skin perfecting product.

This is the best concealer on the market. You get a lot of product and it will last a long time. I love that it has two separate sides for eyes and face. The eye side is very creamy and slightly peach to cover darkness while the face side is more yellow and thick. It also has a large mirror which I love. The brush is small enough to cover blemishes without covering your whole face.

I love Dr Denese's concealer! I bought this in the medium and it has lasted me for so long. It does not settle into lines and makes the skin look flawless. I have fairly dry skin and this give it that "dewy" look. I also love that it is beneficial to the skin. Many times I do not have to apply foundation because this does the job. I usually put this on with BE mineral veil on top and I am ready to go!

I had to buy this directly from Dr. Denese's website because QVC didn't have light in the full-size pan. They don't have the full-size pan at all anymore. You get an ENORMOUS amount of product in the full-size, and the eye one is really creamy and easy to apply. the other is of a different consistency, for a good reason. They are excellent. Will buy again if it's still available at Dr. D's website!

I really like this concealer. It has a nice consistency and DOES NOT crease into fine lines/wrinkles. It is a split pan that one side is an eye concealer and the other side is a face concealer. Both work nicely to hide a less, than flawless face, like mine. It actually matches well with my own skin tone. The shades are light, medium & dark. I bought this thru QVC.com and it comes with its own application brush. If at any time this starts to dry out somewhat in the pan, I recommend adding a little serum ( any brand ) to make it better to apply. It won't effect or change the product in anyway. I alternate the Dr.Denese Smart concealer with the Borghese concealer. I like both of them equally.
