I use all over my face instead of foundation to cover my rosacea, followed by a light dusting of loose powder. Does not crease, all day coverage, LOVE IT!!!!

I have to agree with so many other reviewers (and I don't often get so slap-happy over ANY product that I take the time to write a review...) -- this is the most remarkable concealer I've come across. Ever. If the thought of doing so didn't break me out in a stone-cold sweat, I'd toss the four other concealers I routinely cycle through. This really DOES appear to be the only one I'll be needing for my ridiculous under-eye rings. *SO* thrilled I happened into this stuff. (Only apparent downside really IS the limited color selection... but I happily lucked into the "tan" shade -- which I would thought for certain was going to be too dark. Nope.)
Fantastic product... :)

I love this product. It is the only concealer I will wear. I love that it covers any imperfections not just dark circles. I use much less foundation since using this product as I can cover my "age spots" freckles and undereye darkness with this one product. You need just the smallest amt. as the other reviewers have mentioned. I blend well then I have been using It Cosmetics "high defination no more pores" silicone powder. I then dust with a small amt. of my Pur minerals foundation and my skin looks great! I have had so many compliments lately that I look "rested" and "young" LOL!! Good enough for me! Never settles in fine lines. Because of the small amt. of product you need I also feel this is a wonderful buy as it will last ages!

After using this for about 9 months now, I am finally getting around to reviewing it!
*Very good coverage, even for horrible dark circles. (I said good, not great. Only plastic surgery or a miracle could fully erase mine, so my expectations were reasonable.)
*Very little product is needed each time.
*Did not settle into fine lies.
*At times it can seem to have an odd, grainy kind of texture, but it wasn't enough to put me off.
*Not the cheapest concealer I've ever used.
*Color range is not impressive, as there are only 4 shades to choose from. (For reference I'm NW15 but I needed the natural medium, sometimes referred to as light/medium. I'm the lightest color in every foundation and concealer I've ever tried, but something about the light just didn't mesh well with the skin around my eyes....)
All in all, this is the best concealer I've used since Maybelline discontinued the original Instant Age Rewind Concealer. I will continue to purchase until I find something better.

UPDATE: Still my go-to product after years of trying everything else. And I've tried them all, high-end, low-end and in-between. I do not understand some of the reviews--some say it is thick and gummy (I say this is old, dried out product, it is NEVER thick or gummy) others say too runny and oily (maybe shake the tube to mix..the product does contain 'cones, and it could separate). I am stupified about it setting into lines, because at my advanced age, I do have lines and this just doesn't set into them, after hours of wear. Maybe prep skin properly?
One thing is key: you need to be realistic about covering dark circles. Anything that truly "covers EVERYTHING" is going to be heavy and settle into lines and ultimately look super-madeup and fake. The most you can realistically hope for is to look fresher and to minimize circles, while looking natural or naturally made-up. IT's Bye Bye Under Eye absolutely does this (if you find a color match). The only other products that are in the same ballpark are Armani's and Ellis Faas', both of which are excellent, and have better color choices but orders of magnitude more expensive. And I think IT's is better at staying put and not settling into lines...
Original review below:
Buy this product again? YES!! It is hands down, the BEST undereye concealer on the market, if you can match your coloring AND apply it correctly. It absolutely does not set into lines, and it really seems to disappear on your face...but the dark circles are covered. It seems to have a unique base-- it is not a typical cream, rather a very thin but very pigmented cream.
I think those who didn't like it were probably applying too much. I have very pronounced dark circles, and I use just the TINIEST dot for coverage. In fact, I dot it on my hand, each eye gets a dot that is not much more than a grain of salt in size, apply with a brush, then pat into place with finger. Stays all day, doesn't set into lines. I scrutined this with a 10X mirror, and honestly-- doesn't set into lines. Miraculous. HG status, for sure.
Oil-free, so can be used around other red marks or spots.
Try to test the shades before buying; I was surprised that Tan was the color that matched best for me; it looked darker in the tube, but blended/ "disappeared" perfectly for a concealed look that doesn't look made up, whether you are wearing other foundation/makeup or not.
$24 for a tube that is going to last forever, given the teeny-tiny amount applied each day. Amazing stuff.

Obsessed, addicted and I now can't leave the house without this. Most powerful stuff ever and a true secret weapon.

I brought this based on some rave reviews on MUA and I really really wanted to love it but.... its fine. Better than DS but nothing special for a higher end cosmetic. Yes its thick and you only need a small amount but I think if you've got hard core hereditary circles, you'll be disappointed. As I was.

I love, love, love this concealer. Like so many others, I have been on the search for my HG for almost 2 years (when I began to develop those lovely undereye circles due to age and mommyhood)- and I am ecsatic to report I have found it!
This goes on so smooth and covers almost completely without looking cakey or dry. You only need a tiny dab to cover the desired area, as it spreads nicely. After hours of wear, I can see it settle ever so slightly into my fine lines and I just blot that area and the concealer is blended again with my skin.
I purchased this in the light and I am so happy to have found this product.

I have very fair skin and usually the "light" is always to dark for me, but I ordered this concealer based on all of the rave reviews on beauty.com in the light shade and it is truly amazing. It blends perfect and covers all of my blue and redness around my eyes and nose from allergies. Not sure if it is the collagen or vitamin K in it but it feels to me like a high quality eye cream that is high concentration and a tiny bit covers every single mark or splotch on my skin. I will definitely buy this again and am very excited to find it.

Hmmm..not for me...
I have dark circles and thin, pale skin so they are very obvious on my face. This didn't blend well with my skin unfortunately and it kinda wouldn't really dry or set. I have a feeling this will end up at the bottom of my makeup drawer.

Lives up to the raves for sure. Was reluctant to try at first since I have a major issue with most concealers but this one is a keeper. No creasing plus full coverage and moisturizing. I wish it came in more shades though. But the neutral medium is close enough and the effectiveness makes up for it

My favorite concealer to date. Perfect high coverage and smooth silky application. For me this is worth its weight in gold.

I finally found a good concealer to use under my mineral makeup. For some reason the mineral concealers left my under eye area dry looking and crepey. Bye Bye Under Eye is just what I was looking for. It's highly pigmented so you need just a tiny, tiny dab of this. It spreads like a dream and doesn't look cakey at all on me. I'm happy with my purchase and will repurchase again!
HUGE EDIT!! Dropping this down to 2 stars! Became very grainy and hard to work with. I WON'T repurchase.

I bought Bye Bye Under Eye on my search for a great concealer. I also tried Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-In-Place concealer.
The biggest benefit of the Bye Bye Under Eye is that it is a very light color. Perhaps not light enough for some, but it was lighter than the Estee Lauder and it was light enough to blend in with my super light skin.
I don't know if it was the product I purchased, but there were tiny grainy bits in it. I dont know what the heck this was, but I ignored it and rubbed on the product anyway. It was a little thinner consistency than the Estee Lauder, but it still was pretty strong in its color.
I think the Estee Lauder covered a little better than this, although this was pretty good. Neither acted as a true spackle to my skin, which is what I was hoping for. They both wear off after a while, but hey- It's better than nothing. Neither made my circles completely disappear, but Estee Lauder did a better job.
Is it worth it to try this? If you are in the search for the perfect concealer, then why not? I know that I was a bit disappointed though.

I bow down to you Bye Bye Under Eye (***waves hands up and down***) I finally believe I have found my holy grail concealer. Aside from my dream of getting a complete skin transplant with new pore-free, blemish-free, dark-circle free skin I will take my Bye Bye concealer (and a few others Witch Hazel and Dr. Brandt Pores No More combo) as a second best thing. The Bye Bye gives high coverage and blends well with no breakouts so far. For this I give the bow.

I've started calling Bye Bye Under Eye my "lazy concealer" because I can pretty much just slap it on and it looks great! Okay, not quite but this is as close to an effortless, fool-proof concealer as anything out there. I initially tried applying with my trusty concealer brush the same way I apply my MUFE Full Cover but that gave me disastrous results. This concealer has a very unique lumpy gel texture that spreads and covers better when patted over clean skin (make sure your eye cream has absorbed completely) with fingers. I don't know why or how but when applied that way, I get flawless coverage. Applying with a brush does not work. The product just doesn't spread well and sort of sits on the skin. It's really weird.
I'm an olive-toned NC25 and Neutral Medium is the perfect shade for me. It's a peach-based concealer instead of a yellow-based concealer, which works really well on me to neutralize dark circles. For me, Bye Bye Undereye is like the perfect marriage (as far as color, texture and coverage) of Bobbi Brown Light Bisque Corrector mixed with MUFE Full Cover #4 concealer only it's so much better because it doesn't look cakey or settle into lines. This stuff is super pigmented so a little bit does a long way. Bye Bye Under Eye dries just fine for me although I still set it with powder. As much as I love my Bobbi Brown corrector, I don't have the time or desire to go through the whole routine every morning.
I haven't experienced any irritation, breakouts, or weird skin issues with Bye Bye Under Eye. Although it's a bit expensive ($24 for a tube), this concealer will last for a long time.

What an absolutely wonderful concealer. The coverage is unmatchable to any I have tried and I feel good knowing the vitamin K is reducing darkness under the skin too. Great coverage and no drying or cracking. My only complaint is that the nozzle is very small to get the concealer out so only a little comes out at a time, but I only need a pinprick size amount so it ends up being ok. I might end up replacing my foundation alltogether and just using this concealer it works so well.

I have been wearing this concealer for a little over a month now and felt compelled to write a review after wearing it today in 90 degree heat and it stood up perfectly to the heat and humidity. It doesnt crease at all and gives very full coverage, the best I have ever used. This is definitely holy grail product status for me and I will continue to highly recommend this product to others, it's a God send!

I really tried and wanted to love this concealer, but it was just plain awful. I am NC37 in MAC and I ordered the Tan color. When I first squeezed some out (great packaging by the way) the orangeness of this scared me. I applied it and it was wonderful, at first. After about 5 minutes it sank into my pre-moisturized skin and left me with peachy orange dark circles. Also it really made my whole eye area look dry which of course accentuated my fine lines. I decided to try a lighter color. I got pretty much the same results, but the peachyness I was left with was just lighter and still no coverage.
I understand the new found awareness of this product comes from You Tube-ers being given this product for free to give a glowing review on. I will steer clear of these products from now on.

I wanted to love this, but it just wasn't that special for me. Went on fine, but not long after it sort of faded and left peach splotches around my circles. I can't really explain it. I like my BB Corrector much better at this point.
