I heard so many good things about this concealer I, naturally, had to see what all the fuss was about. I was not disappointed!
It's lightweight formula is rather thin yet covers my rather intense dark circles really well. It's the only concealer I've known to not crease, bunch up or go cakey. I set it with a loose powder and then it stays for the entire day. It's also extremely good at covering redness on the cheeks or nose, and small blemishes.

The down side to this concealer is it's packaging. Although the design is easy to use and gentle on the eye area, it's pretty unhygienic, and it sort of makes me feel a little icky whenever i use it (everyday). With my last tube i removed the sponge tip and just put some on my palette and continued with a concealer brush and it works fine, however with this tube I've stuck it out, and although the design is annoyingly convenient, i can't get past how many germs could be manifesting in the applicator (ew).
I also find it really hard to actually get my hands on the product as it's always sold out where i live.

However the product inside is good enough quality for me to look past these issues and i will continue to repurchase this.

Heard great things about this product so decided to give it a try despite not have horrible dark circles. I will say that right after application, this really highlighted under my eyes nicely. It didn't cake or settle in fine lines like my other concealers have, so first impression is always wonderful.

However, by mid-day, it's patchy as anything! I've NEVER had a product do this before. Instead of a nice seamless finish like I start out with, it ends up looking heavy and disgusting on parts of my cheekbones- to the point where you can clearly see what patches are covered and where they end- which only highlights the patches of absolute NOTHING. I've continually set with a powder and setting spray and nothing has stopped it from looking gross after a few hours. I even switched up my primer to see if it was the problem, but it wasn't.

As for the packaging, is it even sanitary??? We're just expected to rub a dirty sponge on our faces every day? No thank you.

Will not purchase again.

I bought the "neutralizer" color and it was a piece of crap! Wished I had saved $ and repurchased MAC prolong wear concealer instead. Or if I wanted less coverage bought the fit-me concealer and came out ahead. I have some fine wrinkles and this stuff settled and looked terrible, ghostly, creepy, with in an hour of application. I had high hopes for this due to the great reviews of you tube makeup gurus. Yes, it brightened the area but that was for about a half hour, then it looked so fake and creased. It didn't matter if I used primer or what I used to top it. Also, the sponge is gross and the price is outrageous. My dark circles are not even that bad and this stuff made me look worse.

Great coverage but not the best I've tried. It's great to try out!

Love love love this concealer. I'm on my 3rd tube of this so far. I use this on light makeup days when I can't be bothered to use a peach corrector and heavy concealer on my dark undereyes. This provides enough coverage while still looking natural. I'm about NC20-25 and use the Neutralizer shade. Neutralizer is a nice shade for my skin tone since it's very yellow, which does a nice job of brightening under my eyes and blending into my skin. Overall I like this for it's decent amount of coverage while feeling light and looking seamless on the skin. Would definitely repurchase.

I really like this product, although it's not as high coverage as my MAC Pro Longwear concealer, it still has decent coverage and longevity. I love the sponge applicator it comes with as it makes application so simple and means the product needs less blending. I don't have very bad dark circles but I find this brightens up my under eye area well and is usually ok on any blemishes too (when set with powder).

I find that the shade Light is fine on my Fair/Medium skin however it is about the same shade as my foundation so doesn't provide as much of a 'boost' to the under eye area or allow for use as a highlighter. The colour range could definitely be an issue for very pale or dark skin tones as it only comes in two shades - adding one much lighter shade and a few darker would definitely be a good idea.

Overall this is a pretty good concealer . I like the product and love the system of delivery. How easy is this to use! Covers better than most but for me it is lacking in color selection. But if you go light enough and use it under makeup instead of over it works well.

Just started using this a few days ago and I love it! Although my dark circles are fairly minor compared to most people, I think this product works well. I got it in the shade light/pale and its a perfect match to my usual foundation, revlon colorstay in buff (150 is the number I believe. should also be good for nc/nw 15's although I haven't tried it with my studio fix yet). When I say it's a perfect match, I mean it's spot on, it's not lighter in shade like how some people like their under eye concealers to be, thus I use it for other areas of my face with redness as well (nose, acne). The sponge is kinda useless for me, I haven't taken it off but I still use it to apply, then I blend out with a beauty Blender. Ulta/Walgreens usually have deals on maybelline products, bogo half off or the like, regular price is about $8 I believe. Would definitely repurchase, although I have yet to compare it to my hg spot concealer from Sonia kashuk.

Im a big concealer person due to the fact that i have acne scars, blotchy skin, and dark circles.
I've tried every brand of concealers out there including drug store and expensive brands in sephora, bloomies...

This product was amazing on my skin. It covers my dark circles so well and I don't see my wrinkles around my eyes after I smile. And i love how much the color matches my skin and how smooth it goes on my eyes.

However....
I am not a big fan of the packaging. When I first opened the package I had to click it numerous, I mean numerous times for the concealer to slowly come out. And as I click more and more, I'm still never too sure if any even came out.

Overall,
I like this product and I will buy this product again.

This does what it says it will! For my skin I use fair amd it covers and brightens my undereye beautifully. I always get so many compliments when I wear this. The only bad thing is that the cap gets dirty with product. It's tolerable though.
