I am going to have to give this two thumbs down.Here is why! One it is sticky sticky sticky stays sticky also and will leave a shine on your face where you applied it i.e. under the eyes maybe or on a red spot from a past zit or pimple etc. I found this very had to blend in because it is so sticky. Also I hope this was just a fluke but if not screw you tarte. My container was only half full the rest was AIR. Felt full when I bought it but the next day there was hardly any left I used only a few drops. Kinda like the potato chip bag felt full but when you open it the air escapes and your bag is only half full! Anyway yes I returned it and I never return anything. I was very upset by this because I love Amazonian clay by Tarte and that container is clear so I know I wont get ripped off and purchasing air. And no I will not be repurchasing this.

Fantastic coverage. Looks like skin but the kind I'd always hoped for: hydrated, even, supple. Broke me out within 18 hours. Badly.
Now regardless of all the other attributes, this is a show stopper and I'm rather tired of the lack of concern by cosmetics companies to ensure their products don't contain ingredients that do this. Therefore, I will be rating this as low as I possibly can. Shame on you, Tarte.

I really like this concealer for my under eyes. It is very thick and creamy and a little goes a long way. It completely erases my dark circles and the color matches my fair skin perfectly. The only drawback that I've found is that my mascara always ends up smudging all over my lower eyes by the end of the day. I never have this problem when I don't wear concealer or while wearing other concealers. I have tried numerous powders to try and set it but nothing has solved the problem. I want to love this product so bad because it does look amazing but I love my mascara and I don't have a lot of time to do retouches while I'm at work. I think due to that and the costs its something I'll break out for special occasions.

I have tried countless (natural) concealers to hide the discoloration under my eyes, but they all seem to fade or gather in my undereye creases. This stuff gives amazing coverage, lasts throughout the day, and does not crease! YAYY!! It is very thick, so you only need the SMALLEST amount per eye (pin head portion). I blend this with a Sephora concealer brush. If someone has very deep creases under their eye, you can also apply an eye primer to the area, prior to the concealer.
The color selection is great--- the lightest color ("fair"), is quite light-- but it works well for under the eyes (I would probably need the next darkest shade "light" if I were to use this on my face).
I can't speak as to how it works for a facial concealer, but it is definitely fantastic for under the eyes. :) I recommend you try this if you are looking for a good natural under eye concealer! I'm so happy Sephora now carries this (excellent return policy)!

The look, feel, and texture of this reminds me a lot of Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer. It's extremely thick and creamy, so people with lines under their eyes might hate it. It's also shiny on your skin, so you kind of have to use powder to set it. Overall, I'm not too sure about it. I have a nice sample, but as of right now I would not purchase it. It's doesn't set on your skin and you can feel the sticky or oily texture of it.

Got a sample of this, been using it for a week. It's definitely not good for covering blemishes - BUT - it's the first thing I've ever liked under my eyes. It didn't get stuck in my wrinkles and definitely covered my slight dark circles. Eyes looked less puffy too. The lightest color is perfect for my VERY white skin - not orange or yellow. I'm definitely purchasing a full size tube. Easy to apply and eye area definitely felt moisturized hours after application. Very pleasant surprise.

If there is one thing that Tarte does well is concealers and this is no exception. I have a problem with every concealer creasing on me that provides good coverage. This one creased the least on me. Just a little little big and when i blended out the creases after a couple of hours, it never creased again throughout the whole day. Any other full coverage concealer would have continued to crease and look horrible. This one was the best full coverage one that seemed to crease the least. Is it my HG? I wouldn't go that far, but if you have a horrible creasing problem with most concealers, it is definitely something to try and while it did crease a little, it is the only full coverage I have used to hold up as well as it did, and not have to set it with powder.. It is very moisturizing also. I also took a 4 hour nap and the concealer stayed on me fine and didn't smear or budge. Color me impressed.
Update... one thing I must note is that while I really love this concealer and its ability to stay put and not crease... it does feel a little heavy to me. Almost like you have something on your skin which I'm not quite fond of. Aside from that it is great.

I have combo skin, oily in the t-zone and dry cheeks and around my eyes. Previous to this product I've been using Hourglass concealer in warm and Lancome maquicomplet in medium bisque. I don't use Mac products because they break me out, but I'm NC 25-NC30 (winter/summer). These products work great, but are drying around my eyes. I've found that the tarte concealer in the shade medium works great with my skin tone and feels very moisturizing. It doesn't bring out the fine lines or look crepey. I love Hourglass because it gives almost a highlight/luminosity. It brightens as well as conceals. The tarte concealer does the same thing except the downside being that it fades throughout the day. This looks great when I first put it on. I set it with just a tiny amount of Bobbi Brown loose yellow powder. By lunchtime I'm looking a bit tired, then after about 6 hours into my workday it doesn't look like I ever put any on. If touch ups are an option for you, I really do highly recommend this. Also, unless you are not break out prone, I wouldn't put this anywhere else on my face because it is a bit oily feeling. I still prefer the lancome for redness, hyperpigmentation, or blemishes anywhere on my face.

I love the packaging- it's very sanitary and it is hard to squeeze so you don't spill any out of it by accident. However, this creases sooo much under my eyes :( I have terrible dark circles and it covered them at first. But then when I looked in the mirror 10 minutes later I had huge crease lines!! I'm so sad because I thought I had finally found something for my dark circles :(

This is a great concealer for under the eyes or anywhere you have a reddish blemish, as the undertones will cancel out the red... It takes only a teeny tiny bit to get a LOT of coverage, which wil make this investment last you a long time. The consistency is quite thick, but it is easily blendable, which makes that not a big deal. I haven't had any problems with this harming my skin, or causing breakouts/milia. It just works exactly how I need it to! I would compare it to the more heavy-duty MAC concealers, except with better blendability (those tend to dry my face out). This is a great cruelty-free alternative.

My biggest issue with this concealer (which isn't all that big an issue, since I still love the product), is that, yes, it does crease under the eyes. I expected it to, since I just don't believe that any product will NOT crease. The good thing is, that creasing is very slight, and can be minimized by patting the concealer into the skin again, and setting with more powder (a specific undereye powder, like ELF's HD undereye setting powder seems to help more with this). After an initial fix, it doesn't seem to crease any more throughout the day.
