I tried this and really wanted to like it but it just didn't last on me. Coverage wasn't great to begin with and I tried both with the applicator and with my fingers (my normal method). Neither got me the coverage I wanted. Back to MAC Pro Longwear...

Will not rebuy. It didn't make my skin look better or correct dark circles. It just made it look funny around my eyes. My friends literally laughed when they saw me after using this for a few days.

ORIGINAL 1/6/2012:
I hate to be the party pooper here but Meh-this just didn't live up to the hype for me. The culprit is the shade selection mainly; Im an NC20 & I have tried the:

-LIGHT too light almost pale grey & incredibly pink toned
-MEDIUM is much too dark for me
-BRIGHTENER is almost identical to the light IMO--super pink toned.

Also, the idea of the sponge is great vs the unhygienic tubs that u stick your finger in (NYX, thebalm), but because the clicker u twist the first 50x to get any product out has sooo much leftover residue to last for daysss on application, this defeats the purpose. Im sure the moist layer of product being exposed to air & not being able to really clean or replace the sponge is probably attracting germs over time. Lastly, the concealer is quite thin, yet opaque (worthy of 2 stars) but building the right amount because of the clicker is quite difficult, usually your left with too much & spreading it out in a small area, really leaves the area streaky.O yea Maybelline Superstay (a far superior concealer imo) has 10x the product for $2 less. (This one is 0.02oz of $10 vs SS is 0.18oz for $8!)

But I trust my fellow MUA's so if I find the NEUTRALIZER on sale, which looks very light/yellow toned from swatches on blogs online, I'll grab it & update back!

UPDATE: 2/16/14
Tried & tested the neutralizer shade & am SO glad I did. Its beautiful and easily my favorite undereye concealer from the DS atm. The shade is VERY similar to my NC20 Prolong wear; its a pale cream color; like white mixed with a soft hint of yellow. The texture is different ofcourse; very thin & unfort drying compared to MAC. It does brighten and awaken my eyes perfectly though; I just need to be moisturized well. I also still despise the sponge tip packaging for sanitary reasons. Im a concealerholic so own many; with this one (and doe foot applicators) i can't rotate them as long as i'd like because of shelf life. Other than that it has full coverage, veryyy minimal (natural) creasing (i do set with powder) and very affordable at the weekly BOGO sales. I will continue to repurchase :)

I LOOOVE this concealer. I find the pigmentation to be absolutely amazing- it covers the darkness on the inner corners of my eyes very well, and it is also amazing covering any dark spots or acne that I may have at the moment. The consistency is very light, and it is very hard to make it look cakey and I think it stays quite well on my oily skin and it doesn't break me out (which is very important). The only thing that I must complain is the packaging: the top part that rotates just dislocated itself from the actual tube that contains the concealer, and I had to press it back, but still, sometimes it pops out again and it is a constant struggle to keep it where it should be. I also have a love/hate relationship with the sponge applicator because I know it is not the most hygienic thing, but I can't deny that it is very practical and it makes everything that much easier. Needless to say, I will definitely keep buying this until it is discontinued (which I hope is not soon).

This under-eye concealer seemed like it could work good when I saw it. I only bought it based on it's claims and it looked nice. The packaging is so unsanitary and annoying to use. I didn't like the product itself because it was too sheer, creased in my under eyes, and didn't help my skin. There are way better drugstore concealers out there that I would suggest.

This concealer feels SO lightweight and cool on your skin when you apply it, yet it has very good coverage, and I have pretty noticeable dark circles due to my fair skin. The shade Fair is perfect for my skintone. I purchased it in Brightening beforehand and I liked the coverage, but it was a little too light and pink-toned for me. But if you are looking for a more dramatic, highlighted look, Brightening may be right for you. It does not majorly crease at all. It settles a bit in my fine lines directly under my eye, but not noticeably, and rubbing a bit where it has settled fixes that. It is far from cakey, but does leave a bit of a dewy finish, but nicely dewy. Overall, I love it!

bought it in neutralizer I heard so many things about it I was so pumped that I bought it online it covers as well as my nyx pot concealer so I used it under my wand concealer and it looks better. Also I like to use it under a bb cream and with the age rewind powder (the discontinued) and I really like this..

By far the best concealor ever! I've tried everything from benefit to mac & this is simply amazing. I have lines under my eyes and I am an eye glass wearer so it tends to get oily near my eyes. I needed a concealor that wouldnt settle in those lines and make the oil look worse. This is it! It lasts all day & has a great full coverage to brighten and cover those panda eyes. Seriously amazing.
