I don't know if I like this product. It has a spongy applicator but it takes about 1000 twists to dispense the product. It's kind of thin, but I think it has potential. I need to use it more to get an accurate picture.
I used it one weekend when my face was sensitive (pregnancy hormones) and it burned that time but Has not burned since.
To sum it up- I am not blown away by this product but I am not counting it out yet. Time will tell.

I actually like this concealer. I really didn't think it would cover much but its def good for during the day wear....especially for work. Pretty good value.

This product didn't work at all for me. It's so cakey, it looks completly fake (horrible colour that turned grey on my skin) and makes me look much older as a result.
I have put it in the bin after 3 days !

Personally I love this concealer. I've used a lot of high end and low end concealers; gel, cream, you name it. This has been my favourite because it suits my skin tone (I'm extremely pale), the consistency is just right, it stays on under my foundation-I use Revlon Colorstay, and it covers amazingly. First time wearing it out I definitely noticed a difference between my other concealers and this one stayed on much cleaner and way longer. It only cost me $10 so this is pretty much my new all time fave. I'd recommend it to anyone that asked!

I have been using this for a while and going back and forth between this and some other concealers I have. I took a break from this and was using other products and started using this again. I forgot how great this is and I appreciate it more since using other products. Wow, I guess I am a true product junkie, I have to use other products to appreciate the ones I already have. Anyways, this is not for people with the really dark blue circles, I mainly have some darkness under my eyes, not the kind that looks like a bruise so this works well for me. I don't think this will work for the bue dark circles, for that you need something with a peach ting. Anyways, I like how liquidy this is and it works really well over my Ole Henriksen Total Truth eye cream. I just put on 3 dabs under each other and pat into my undereyes to blend. Then I apply Laura Mercier secret brigtening powder over it and it stays all day. It looks completely natural too, the most natural out of anything else I've tried, it doesn't cake or settle into fine lines, and it doesn't make my makeup smudge. All around great product!

I occasionally get light green under eye circles if I don't get enough sleep or when my seasonal allergies flare up. They're not bad, and every concealer I've ever used for them have instantly covered them with one layer. This product sank into my problem areas and had this highlight effect that reflected my circles back out. I tried putting it on first, last, and in the middle with foundation and powder and combining it with other concealers, and I tried a brush, the sponge applicator (which was awkward and hard to use), and my finger. Nothing worked. Not only did this product not correct the problem, it made it worse.

I use color 30 Medium. The applicator is wonderful and more gentle then applying with my ring finger. I apply it. And then lightly tap it into my under eye area until it is blended into my skin. I like this concealer. It's moisturizing, but not oily, and it does not get cakey. This is light to medium coverage. Definitely not full coverage on me. I wish this had a tiny bit more coverage. Then it would be my perfect concealer. I also wish it more light reflecting because it does make for a great highlight under the eye. Im very tan nc42 and the brighter in this line is too pink for my golden skin.

This product has been great so far. The packaging is slightly gimmicky and you do have to twist it a lot to be able to see product coming out. Texture is thin but not too wet or too dry. Its easily blendable, buildable and opaque. It has no fragrant. The only downside is it looks like you used a lot of the product but a lot of it is soaked up in the fuzzy sponge. Also the color selection is not so great. I had a hard time picking the my color since i between medium and fair. You cant really wash the sponge so I wouldn't recommend this for germ-phobes out there.

I just can't give a good rating to a concealer that doesn't provide the kind of coverage a concealer should... and this product fails to deliver. I like the slightly more liquid-y, moisturizing texture, and appreciate the fact that it doesn't crease under my eyes. But it just doesn't manage to cover my dark circles like most other concealers can... girls with bad circles, stay far away!
Much less of a concern, but still- hate the packaging. The eraser ball is one of those gimmick-y things, I wish it just had a doe foot applicator or squeeze top or something.

I bought no 60, illuminator.
it works as a highlighter and if my dark circles are having a lighter day :), then it covers well. I also use it under the brow and inner conner of eye-good
HARD TO USE. THE STICK UNDER THE EYE HURTS. You need to put it on your finger and then pat on
BAD PACKAGE, BAD BAD BAD, My top came off and can't put it back. I can't depot it unless I use a q tip and that's not very easy, so I turned it upside down and put under a window to warm up -did not work
So off to the trash it goes and $$$ too. So I think it's expensive if you have to throw it away.
I can't give more that 2 since I did not have the opportunity to use a lot.
When the package was opened, there was not a lot in there either
Companies should learn to package their products simply like a straigtht wand in a straight container. A package should not be the factor that ruins a product quality or reputation.
So be aware that the container may not outlast your use

If I ever wanted to un-impress someone I would buy this product again. I'm very fair skinned and have pretty intense dark circles, which this product covered for about 2 minutes before it began to cake and settle into fine lines. I'm surprised, and discouraged to see the percentage of people who would buy this product again as I am still in search of my miracle product. This was definitely not it.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Sensitive, Fair, Cool Hair: Blond, Straight, Fine Eyes: Blue
The applicator is a good idea, but after a few uses you don't want to be re-using the same sponge thats built in... other than that, love the product! Light reflecting yet covers well, I highly recommend.
Age: 36-43 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium Hair: Blond, Straight, Medium Eyes: Green
Hate the applicator. In order to use this, I would put this on my finger to then pat underneath the eye. The coverage is really thin. I don't see how it could cover anyone's dark circles.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Oily, Dark, Cool Hair: Brunette, Curly, Coarse Eyes: Brown
I love this stuff. It really brightens and covers my dark circles. The texture is very smooth and creamy like. I love the fuzzy brush applicator also. It also works well for covering other spots on my face.

I bought this in the medium color, and it matches my skin color perfectly. I am an NC35 for reference.
At first I was a little skeptical of the application of this concealer because one would think that it would collect bacteria with the sponge applicator, but apparently it has microbial properties that doesn't allow bacteria growth says "maybelline" so I don't know 100% what is correct, but I am going to review it based solely on the product itself.
Application is easy, quick and effortless. Just a twist of the top and concealer comes out and disperses over the sponge applicator. Then you just swipe under/over eyes etc. And I just love the ease of application. I just use my fingers to blend it in and that works just fine.
Staying power, I would say that it lasts pretty much all day for me 8-10 hours. Now keep in mind my undereye area is not too much of a concern, it is just a tad bit discolored nothing alarming, but it can be a bit bothersome on days. So for me it works beautifully.
It doesn't look cakey and flaky but smooth. I make sure to apply a heavy eye moisturizer before I apply it of course, or else I'm sure you would experience some cakyness as with any concealer for that matter.
I would definitely buy this again!

I have his I. The neutralizer and also in fair. I bought the fair by accident thinking it was the brightener. I am going to grab the brightener anyway just to try, but I really love the two that I have. The neutralizer works well on my dark circles and the fair does a great job of brightening. I also use the fair around the. Openers of my nose. This stuff has the best texture. I pulled the sponge off of the fair to see if unlike it better without it but I actually do love the sponge applicator once I got the hang of it. For the fair now that I have pulled the sponge off I twist it out into my finger and apply it and it feels amazing. It is really smooth and creamy and blends fantastically. I wish the foundation came in a shade that matched my skin so I could try it. If it has the same texture that would be amazing I think. This sets well and stays put but does not get dry looking and crepey. I did have a problem wih the price though. $7.49 for each and when you are buying both the neutralizer and the brightener it's a bit of money. I think those 2 should come in a set. But I would spend it again because it works so well.

My new favorite concealer! It's not cakey and doesn't settle into fine lines like the others I've tried. I do not have dramatic dark circles but this product definitely brightens the undereye area. I love the sponge applicator (it's anti-microbial). I apply it with the sponge then use my Sigma F82 brush to blend it out. I also love that you can see how much of the product has been used. It takes quite a few clicks to get the product moving when you first open the product and the first application may be clumpy but after a few uses, it glides on so smooth. I am NW15 and use the shade "Fair".

Between this and my Bobbi Brown corrector... i have to say I like this better (don't kill me lol)! i love the packaging. I like seeing that I'm using it up :) I like the coverage and that even though it's made for under eye, i can still use it on my face for a quick fix. and it doesn't crease. The coverage is not opaque, but it's pretty decent (and I have the typical Latin/Italian dark circles...). I removed 1 lippie b/c it's not life changing, but for now, it's my go-to under eye concealer and pretty damn good, especially for drugstore.
I'm NC30-35 in MAC and Medium is perfect - just the right level of 'brightness/lightness.'

I think I would buy this again. I got this in neutralizer, as I was scared to buy a color and it not match my skin, so I figured neutralizer would fix that issue. However, this color doesn't fit all skin tones - I don't think it's completely right for me. It might be a smidge too light and therefore doesn't cover my dark circles completely as well as it should. It can also look cakey if you apply more than one layer, so beware. I think the puff ball applicator is cool, but probably unsanitary even though it claims to be "anti-mocrobial". However, it conceals pretty well because at the end of the day when I remove my concealer, I'm in awe at what a difference it made. Not sure if that's a good thing or a bad thing..
Also, definitely don't buy into the whole "anti-aging" and "this will make your under eye circles better" gimmick. My dark circles haven't gotten better with using this. If anything, it's gotten worse but I'm not blaming the concealer for that.
ETA: I bought the shade "light". I'm a very light skinned hispanic (NC25), so I thought this would match. It's still light on me! What the heck, Maybelline? I might get Medium next but I'm afraid that'll be dark on me. After all, it is the second darkest color.
Coverage isn't as great as it should be, so i'm really torn with this product.
ETA again: noticed this product is kind of dry. Not cakey necessarily, but veering towards it. I like the finish it provides, but when I look up close, i can see little patches of pigment... it's difficult to explain. I don't use it as much anymore. It's not bad, and I'd use it if the concealer I like now were discontinued.
ETA: This is giving me mild undereye milia. A lot of concealers do this to me, though but I stop using them when they do. Discontinuing use.

This is by far the best drugstore conclear that I have ever used. I'm only 18 years old so I don't have major dark circles but it really does cover them up and adds some brightness under my eyes. I'm an NC25 and I use the color Medium. It goes on really smooth and blends very nice. The sponge is helpful but I don't use that to blend it. I really want to try the illumizing one for the undereyes and also for highlighting.
