I purchased this as a reward to myself for accomplishing something. It cost me a very pretty penny and I have to say I wasn't wowed by it. It's really creamy but I found it caked on me. I'm using it on my face and it's good but really for the price it should be incredible. And for some people it seems it is, but not for me. Another weird thing is the instructions say to use the stick on your face but it really doesn't work as well. I took the make up artist's suggestion and take some with my finger and apply. I'm using Laura Merciers secret concealer ( the single pot one) and I find for my under eyes it works better for me.

I have natural creases under my eye on top of it being naturally dry in that area so many other concealers I've tried before either creases or flakes up after a short period of wear. Especially now that it's winter, dry skin is a big concern with products going over my dry zones. Having had so many problems with concealers in the past, I've practically given up on them and have just let my blemishes and couple of broken capillaries hang out on their own. But after reading so much about this product I had to give it a try.
Firstly, the best way to apply this product is with the tips of your fingers to warm it up a little so it'll be easily spreadable/blendable. Secondly, the SA at Neiman Marcus told me the trick to having it last throughout the day and looking like a second skin is to apply it while your moisturizer/eye cream/primer hasn't completely set. Using her advice, in lieu of waiting the usual 5-10 minutes after moisturizer, sunblock and primer I patted the beige concealer in around my eyes, nose and spotted it onto my blemishes. It wasn't an absolute coverage but my face looked like I was doing the right things to my body for the past month straight. That was more than I could ask for and everything I wanted in a concealer.

I have really terrible under eye dark circles, and I have wasted so much money on concealers in the past that either don't work or make me look older than I am. So, I just go without concealer. That is, until I discovered this! It is silky and perfect. A little bit, and my dark circles are gone! The SA applied it over the CLP anti-dark circle eye cream and the combination is perfect.

I love this concealer. It has been the best so far to cover my very deep under eye circles. It blends very well and doesn't emphasize my fine lines. I'm a NC 30 and the makeup artist recommended the color beige for me which really looks good.

I've tried the sample and found that it doesn't really cake up on my eyebags, especially if I moisturised well. The colour is quite suitable and I barely need to add foundation or BB cream to blend it. As for filling in scars and covering acne spots, it does a pretty decent job. I like it better than other concealers for its texture and coverage. Thus far in comparison, I've recently tried Make Up Store's Cover All Mix concealor (cakes up), Laneige's Snow Crystal Foundation's concealor (not enough coverage) and Skin Food's Rice Concealor (not thick enough and needs foundation/BB cream to blend, but does an okay job). Will finish the sample and get the full-sized.

I am between a mac NW20 and NW25 (although I can wear NW25 without mixing). This beige is smack bang in the middle of the above mac shades.
This is a great creamy but slightly dry high coverage concealer. When i first emulsify this between my fingers its very smooth and creamy but it sets very quickly, so be sure to blend because when it's set - it feels almost slightly dry.
If you apply to much it will settle between lines, but don't try to do that and don't apply it over your foundation, works better without it. Great concealer , I rate it over the mac select cover up...worst case scenario - just as good.

I used to use Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer for my undereye area, but decided that I wanted to try a different concealer when I finished my last pot. The color match was good for my undereye area and when I first tried it I thought that I had found my HG concealer. Plus after hearing all the good reviews on this product, I thought that it would really be effective on me. Though it does give good coverage and is creamy enough to blend, I noticed that it dries with a powder-like finish that looks cakey on me. I really wanted to love this product but I think that I will be going back to the Bobbi Brown concealer after I finish this tube.

I must be strange but I did NOT like this concealer at all! I thought it was very dry even with eye cream and it did not cover as well as Bye, Bye Undereye. I will definitely be returning it to Saks.

beige is a perfect match for my nc20-25. not too white, too yellow, too pink, too anything on my skin
versatile. no need for a different one for pores, undereyes, blemishes, redness, this baby solves all my problems. although i dont have dark circles i still think this would perform beautifully. i love how well it covers the redness and pores on my nose and chin. i don't need foundation after using this
one easy step. just apply where needed and blend with your fingertips, no need for another jar of this and another jar of that to set it
when i first saw the stick, i was scared the formula would be too dry or thick. not even close... its like silk and blends super easily while covering. i hate products where the time it blends in properly, it no longer disguises what its supposed to. the finish in this beautiful. not cakey, obvious or unnatural in any way and you truly notice the difference when you compare this under natural light
i can actually justify the price (~$82 AUD!), i only need very little product to do the job and see this lasting much longer than my usual products, even with daily use. especially when there is no product wastage (tube winds down too), when there is no need to buy additional products to help conceal or muck around with so-so products to do the job

PROS: Lived up to the hype pretty well. Didn't run on me. Great coverage/highly pigmented, but not cakey (may want to use an eye cream first.) Lasted pretty well on the skin. I'm an N15 (leaning toward NC), and I was ivory. Beige was just a bit dark and too orange on me.
CONS: Poor variety of color choices (there were only four.) Price.
ALTERNATES: For DS alternate, Mayb. Mineral Power. HE alternate is Dior Hydrating (have to layer that one if you want heavier coverage, but it's beautiful).

i, too, use this for undereye. this is the best undereye concealer i've used! it is on the pricey side but the result is well worth it. I'm a NC35. Ivory looks a bit too dark under my eye so I opted for Beige. im in love. i've never seen my eyes look this good. i got this last month. i'm curious to know how long it will last for almost daily use. i most likely will buy it again.

I use concealer exclusively under my eyes and I apply this after my sunblock each morning. I find it delivers a smooth, non-cakey, non-creasing finish to my undereye area. It also provides just enough moisture to keep my skin looking dewy all day. I am a MAC NW20 and Beige is my perfect match.
Age: 30-35 Skin: Acne-prone Hair: Black Eyes: Brown
I love this concealer. As a makeup artist, this is probably the best of the best I've used! It never cakes, stays put all day and has buildable coverage! Best of all, no breakouts!
Age: 19-24 Skin: Normal, Tan Hair: Black Eyes: Hazel
I love this concealer, it is the best concealer that I have ever used. I used ochre but it just didn't look as good as beige did on me so I stuck with beige. I love the beige one because it brightens up the skin! It covers well and it looks beautiful under my eyes. The price is expensive ($80) but it's very worth it.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium Hair: Brunette Eyes: Brown
The best concealer I have found, and I've tried a lot (Prescriptives camoflauge, Mac, Clinique, etc.). I've bought about 5 in a row of these by now. They're expensive, but last really long and are totally worth it the price. The texture is perfect - not too liquidy, not too dry. My face could literally be one of those before-after pictures when I have this concealer under one eye, but not the other. It's amazing.

A very good concealer indeed, at least if you can find a good colour match. There are only three colours available: ivory, beige and ochre. The texture is really very good, great coverage without the heavy look - it really erases the circles under your eyes! It is a bit on the drier side, so creasing is no issue. If your skin is dry, however, you need to prep with a good moisturizer, preferably something silky rather than greasy.
I have purchased my tube in Fall 2005 at Neiman Marcus ($68 + tax back then, talk about expensive!!!) and I still have more than half of the product left. I did not use it daily as the colour was too yellow on its own, I wore it only with foundation or tinted moisturizer. I am quite pale and every SA reached for the palest colour - Ivory. But I should have purchased the Beige which has more rosy undertones and blends better with my colouring. And besides the exuberant cost, this is my major issue with this concealer: the choice of colours, or the lack thereof.
Since then I have switched to Prescriptives Flawless Skin Total Protection Concealer in Warm Level 2. It is for all practical purposes as good as the Cle de Peau concealer, costs only a fraction ($25) and has a nice palette to choose from.
In short, very good concealer if you can find a good colour match. Try all colours before you purchase (Ivory and Beige are very similar in intensity and could work for moderately fair to light-medium skin, Ochre is for light to medium skin). If you LOVE it, don't let the price intimidate you. The price is very high, but the product will last quite a long time (I would say 2 years with daily use), and $35 a year for no circles under your eyes is a bargain!
As for me, I won't repurchase Ivory. Right now I am happy with my Prescriptives Flawless Skin Total Protection Concealer, but if I had the money to burn (and a Cle de Peau counter in the area) I'd consider getting one in Beige.

After using this for a while, I think I can announce that my serach for undereye concealer is over unless there is a formula change with this one.
To start with, I have serious dark circles at the inner eye corner and a little line under my eye, which I got both since I was a kid. I didn't realize that until I looked at the photos I took. :\ Note that I'm still in my early 20s. SIGH.
To cut the journey searching for the HG concealer short, I tried the creamy-looking concealer from BB as I read up all the good reviews, but unfortunately, that disappointed me for being sooo drying and I was kind of scared to splurge that much for an undereye concealer. I tried Bourjois's Imperfection Concealer which both shades didn't work for me, also the liquid concealer from Sofina Raycious, which wore off completely in 10 mins even with powder! Then I tried Lola's concealers (both creme compact and liquid) - they covered pretty nicely but still not completely and might accentuate my line after some time or simply wear off. Then I tried YSL's Touche Eclat and for sure, that is an highlighter. Bummer. After that, I tried Chanel's Eclat Lumiere, which is better than the YSL one in terms of coverage but when there's not enough light, the light-reflecting particles won't work well and duh - there I see my dark circles again! Finally, I came to this after I went through the struggle for the price tag.
This looks freaking drying in the tube though it isn't really the case. But for sure, you still need an eye cream or serum under this. I usually let my skin care stuffs sunk in before I apply my m/u. I don't need to use much for this as well, for this is quite opaque. I dab some concealer along the darkest "line" of my under eye area with my brush at the eye corner and "drag" it out a bit with the brush or simply "smudge" the concealer stick onto the darkest part and then pat it out with my ring finer if I am lazy or in a hurry and YAY - evil dark circles are gone. I find dabbing the concealer on with a dragging out motion (hope this makes sense) is the key, well, at least for me. A second layer can be added if you think the coverage is not enough, but never start with too much concealer as you will end up with cakey undereye areas. Trust me as I tried that already.
As a side note, I set the concealer with my Lola pressed powder, but it didn't go so well as the line under my eye appeared after a few hours. I tried the Secret Brightening Powder from Laura Mercier. I think the LM powder and CdP concealer are made to be a pair! LOL. This powder sets the concealer without allowing my line to appear only after half a day w/o any touch-up. That powder is shimmery for reflecting the light, which is good too. Being lazy, I would just use the Chanel loose powder - this works ok - not as good as LM's but better than Lola's. I guess dusting like is better than swiping the powder on too. When I'm not wearing any foundation but concealer alone, I don't really need to set it with a powder. I hv not tried this with the foundation as erm, I like to set my liquid fdt with powder.
Not only I can use this for my dark circles, I also use this for blemishes on my face like the acne scars or so. However, this doesn't cover red marks very good and for such purpose - may need a green corrector under this. I even tried this on a small, red open sore - yes, I know I'm bad - this covered natrually as if there was a small dot only after half a day.
Finally a dual-purpose concealer for me though Beige is actually darker than my skintone. FYI, I'm using Chanel's Teint Innocence liquid in #10 Albatre (intensity 0.5)/ CdP's liquid in I10/ She Uemura Face Architect liquid in #774 . I can actually use this in Ivory or Beige - but just Beige is a tad more pinkish than Ivory. When blended, beige is just more pinkish and a tad darker. Beige blends in better when I was using O10 of their liquid foundation, but not I10. Ivory blends in better when I use the I10 right now. I can use both shades when I'm not wearing any foundation.
As for the price, this is really expensive esp for a college student like me. But I think the price worths it - considering the quality and quantity you get from CdP. This is highly likely to be the concealer that I will actually finish it - I have never finished any of my concealers as I was always on the search for the HG - I either sell them or swap them, or even worse, throw them out.
Thanks for reading my long rave for this concealer and now, you may seriously consider to hand out your money for this concealer, for I am sure I will do this again. LOL.

I got CDP concealer "Beige" from Ebay. It costs about $65.00 which includes shipping. I am so happy for the quality and color which Beige is matched my skin tone perfectly. I have Stephane Marias in #4which is too dark and #2 is too light.Now, I found my HG concealer. For reference, I wear Cdp cream foundation O20

I love this concealer! It's so expensive, but so worth it, in my opinion. This applies smoothly and never creases or settles into fine lines. Plus, it covers like no other - blemishes, dark circles, hyperpigmentation, you name it!
I really recommend it!
Note: I'm a NC20-25, and this is a perfect shade for me.

This covers very well and does not settle into fine lines. I do think this would work best to cover blemishes, because I think a peach toned concealer works best for under eye circles. This would probably work well for someone that does not have really dark under eye circles. I wish they would come out with something more peach, then I would buy it again for sure.
