I heard this was comparable to the YSL Touche Eclat so I decided to try it. I brought the shade 'medium honey' which is great for my warm yellow undertones. Dispensing the product the first time round was a pain - you had to click several times for the product to finally come out. The formula is lightweight, creamy and blends away easily to give me a more fresher look. It gives light-medium coverage for me which is alright, but if you need heavier coverage, this may not be the best option. It is very natural looking and what I love most is that it didn't settle into the lines around my eyes (a big problem with many of the concealers I have tried in the past). Good for redness around nose, but for blemishes, I need a thicker concealer for the job. Might just be my new favourite at the moment! Worth a try considering the price tag when compared to YSL! :)

I'm torn on this product. I like the brightening effect and the light/medium coverage. However, the creasing is TERRIBLE under the eyes. Literally within 30 seconds of putting this under my eyes (with primer & tinted moisturizer first) it creases into the very find lines under my eyes and it continues to re-crease all day! I've tried everything, including powdering with HD powder directly after applying and nothing has stopped this from creasing. Probably won't buy again due to the creasing.

I think this concealer is ok for a little sheer brightening. But the packaging wastes a lot of product and the color selection is limited.

I haven't had this for very long, but so far I'm definitely a fan. It took like 500 clicks to get any product out at all (which is annoying) but it looks so great on my skin! The color selection isn't the best..I think they only have four shades..but it's a nice formula and a decent price. My undereye area is extremely dry and any concealer I put under there just makes me look 5 years older, but this actually looks really nice. It minimizes (doesn't erase) my dark shading and brightens my eyes. I use it as a highlighter, too, on my cheekbones and sometimes on my nose, forehead and chin just for a little extra dimension. I hope it continues to work as well as it has so far because I really am enjoying this product.

I'm a NC42 and I bought #4 for to conceal blemishes and #2 for under eye. It does a decent job on giving light-medium coverage. I do own YSL Touche Eclat #1 and I use the YSL for highlighting so I can't really compare in terms of concealing. In terms of staying power, it stays on for 3-4 hours, not very long lasting. I wasn't happy with the packaging since it took about 20 clicks the first time to get any product out and it still takes several clicks for each time I try to get the product out. I like this for when I'm on the go.

very poor coverage.......but I don't like YSL Touche Eclat ...which this is a copy of, either.Whats the point of a concealer if it doesn't cover.It went right back to CVS.

This is pretty nice - I like to use this for my undereyes, and then extend a little extra up to my eyelids to brighten. It does a good job of doing both. The concealer isn't too thick, and doesn't get cakey. The color in light is really light. I'm NC20 and it's almost too light for me. However, I think the next darkest color is too dark. This seems to have the slightest bit of pearl or shimmer to it, but not sparkle - just something that lightens the look and works like a highlighter. This is nice, but I would prefer to keep my Maybelline Instant Age Rewind duo for these purposes.

great concealer for under eyes! it gives great coverage but it won't cake up unless you put a lot...the only thing is the clicking application is kinda annoying

I bought this at CVS (BOGO 1/2 off) after seeing a couple of reviews here and seeing comparisons and reviews off of youtube, comparing it to the YSL highlighter. I personally do not own that but seeing how that does wonders for people and the price tag on that is ridiculous, I wanted to try a dupe. I know for sure other drug store brands have something similar but I tried out the Milani brand only.
Moving on to the review- I got it in medium #2 and medium honey #4 (correct me if I'm wrong, the color isn't on the pen itself). #2- has a light pink undertone and #4 is more yellow. I found #1 & #3 to be darker in shades in comparison. For MAC, I am NC 35/37 and concealer (undereyes- NW 25). The shades I picked out were comparible to the concealer shade. #2 works well under the eyes & #4 for spot concealing over blemishes and such. The color matched really well for my skin tone. The texture of this stuff is creamy and light-medium coverage. The packaging is great, even though it took quite a few clicks for the product to come out once open, it still has great packaging. VERY convenient to travel with.
OVERALL- I do like the product but it's not long lasting. I have really dark circles from genes and staying up late and although this works for a few hours and covers nicely, it doesn't last long enough for me throughout the day.

I've never really found a concealer that wouldn't cake up on my skin. Saw this in CVS one day and figured I had nothing to lose and shockingly, it's pretty great. It's not really HD since you will see a little bit of caking if you are right up in someones face or photographing, but for regular use, I love it. Light perfectly matches my skin tone and helps get rid of redness around my cheeks and nose. I still need an orange/peach shade underneath to actually get rid of under eye circles, but this is definitely worth a try.
