- covers well
- settles into fine lines
Comments: Too dry of a formula to comfortably use under the eyes as it will accentuate any fine lines. The coverage isn't bad, but the texture is.
Will not repurchase.

I would probably give this a 2.5 if I could.
I'm 20 years old and don't have wrinkles, but I have really dark circles under my eyes which I've been dealing with for years. My Lancome waterproof under eye concealer usually works pretty well, but it definitely doesn't erase the dark circles (and it's expensive!)
If I layer the Instant Age Rewind overtop of the lancome concealer it really does make a difference in brightening the under eye area, but I can't use this product by itself, it's nowhere near thick. So on it's own it's a fail.
I hate the packaging though! Why must they do this?? I feel like I waste a lot of product in the sponge as well as on the contraptions inside the container. I would rather have a squeeze tube, then I can cut it open when it seem empty and really get every last bit. It's such a process to get enough product out of the applicator. I also think I'm going through a lot of the concealer way to fast, it's like 1/3 done and I've been using it for a month, other concealers last like 6 months and up!
I won't by this again because
A) I can't use it alone (which seems pointless to me)
B) The packaging sucks
C) I have to use so much product that I go through it too fast
I'll use it up until it's done though.

I like this concealer..is thin and blendable. This concealer also doesn't crease or settle into fine lines .i use this on my under eye circles. I don't really like the sponge applicator but it does help spread the product. I got the color i chose was a touch too light..so i will repurchase in the medium shade when this is finish.

If you want to look like you have bad wrinkles under your eyes when you really don't, then use this product! DO NOT use this under the eyes because it is very thick and cakey! It also becomes drying and accentuates fine lines and wrinkles. I like to use this as a highlighter on certain areas of the face but no under the eyes. The sponge also harbors bacteria, which is not ideal.

so sad :( ive researched this product for along time and was so excited to try it but was so disappointed. Yes this does "brighten" the undereye but it sunk into my fine undereye lines. Im 26 and if it sets into my lines thats just horrible,

I have TERRIBLE under eye circles due to my heritage. This is how I control my circles: I apply this product generously, allow it to set for a couple minutes and then dab it in. Then apply my foundation. After all of my make up routine is finished i then touch up the darkest part of my cricles with Maybelline dreamlumi touch highlighting concealer.

I picked up this product after hearing all the hype about it when it first came out, so I decided to give it a try. The colors seem to have a pink undertone which seemed to give my under eye circles a bit of a gray cast.
-Does help brighten up dark circles
-Light to medium coverage
-The sponge applicator is kinda unsanitary in my opinion
-The packaging broke after a few months
Tips: When the packaging broke there was still a lot of product left, so I just pulled the twist top off and dipped my small elf concealer brush in the tube to use what was left.

I tried this on Neutralizer before and it went straight to the garbage. It just doesn't do anything for me. It's yellow and thin. Doesn't cover my dark circles. Then I bought Light after watching Xteeener on YouTube. It's less than $4 (after coupons), why not! And I actually like it this time. Light has a slight pink tone to it and it covers my dark circles a lot better than Neutralizer. I finally figure out it is because my dark circles are blue/purple tone. So a pink tone concealer works better. Yellow tone concealer is for brown dark circles. Thank you internet!
Ok, now I found the shade I actually like it better. But I only wear it on days that I'm not going out. While it brighten the under eye areas the coverage and staying power are just ok. 2-4 hours later it starts fading. But for the price I can't complain. I already repurchased some back ups.

Not only are my dark circles hereditary, but they are exacerbated by my allergies. I'm always looking for something that will cover those bad boys and make me look less tired, sick, etc. My absolute favorite concealer is Tarte's Dark Circle Defense, but it looks like it's discontinued, so I like having a cheaper alternative to stretch out what remains. I'm not saying this is a dupe by any means, but it is certainly acceptable for my day to day needs.
The things I like:
- covers well. I use the shade 'Brightener' and it really does help conceal and illuminate the darkness under my eyes. It doesn't completely cover it, but it makes me at least not look like a zombie.
- inexpensive. I think I paid $7-8 at Ulta, but I usually use their coupons so things come out pretty cheap.
- lasts a long time. I've been using the same tube since last spring, and I've got about half left.
The things I dislike:
- the packaging. It seemed like I never got enough product out no matter how many times I turned the dial when the little puff was on top. So I pulled it off, and I can get the perfect amount out now. However, without the puff on top, it gets a little messy in the cap, and I'm not a fan of that.
- the shades. I'd like something that's more peach/salmon toned, but they don't have anything like that. The 'Brightener' shade works ok, but it can look greyish or ashy sometimes.
All in all, I think this is a great, affordable underye concealer and I will repurchase when I use up my current tube, unless there is something I want to try more.

I bought this in brightener.
My dark circles are def lighter. This has no noticible shimmer that I can tell. Its a pink toned illuminater and I'm just gald it isn't sparkley.

I have dark undereyes but not very dark It seemed everything I tried made them worse! But I bought this in the shade light and use it under my eyes I Love it! I love that it gives me a pretty highligted undereye like Kim K.! I apply it in dots under my eye then spread and blend with my ring finger. Then set with the dream matte puff and powder just pat the powder under my eyes and it stays on all day! My HG so far. it is a little pricey for the small container so I might have to just get the big one. All in all Great Product.

I love this stuff! i have it in two shades 'medium' and 'light'
i use the light for undereyes and areas that i like lighter
i use the medium shade to cover any acne scars and blemishes
the coverage is full and it is extremely easy to blend
it retails for $25 here in australia but i got it on sale for $18.95!

I bought this in the "Light" shade, I was attracted to this because of the spongey applicator, and the promise of erasing dark circles. First off, the "Light" is not LIGHT at all. It was ORANGE on me, and I was very disappointed. I like the consistency of this product, but it really just didn't do the job for me. Will not repurchase.

I have the worst hereditary dark circles that go all the way around my eyes, it's ridiculous. I used to use dermablend smooth indulgence in nude but I cant find it anywhere not even their website, sigh. About 5, or maybe more than 5 years ago I tried every concealer rite aid sells (love their return policy) and hated them all, then I moved on to ulta (same return policy :)) and found dermablend. so, yea, I've tried out quite a few concealers, and I'm picky.
This product by itself it sucks, but this is how I do it. eye cream, foundation primer, foundation, pixi corrector concentrate in peach, maybelline instant age rewind eraser, sonia kashuk brightening powder.
This blends very nicely, it's not too drying and surprisingly it barely creases. I also use this for the red areas on the sides of my nose and it hasn't made me breakout.
While I like using the puffy thing on the end to dab it on, it is pretty unsanitary I wish I could take it off and wash it or replace it. Also the clicking mechanism feels cheap I hope it doesn't break. If the concealer I used to use was discontinued and not just out of stock... everywhere, or if this lasts a long time without running out. I'd buy this again.

I don't get the hype for this product. It's a meh concealer that's not very effective on dark circles, no matter what its name is. In some ways I like the spongy applicator, but you have to click it dozens of times to get any product out. I almost returned mine to the store because I thought it was defective. The colors run a shade lighter than what you see in the container. I got this in Fair, which turned out to be a little too light for me--and I'm a brunette with almost Snow White coloring. Would not repurchase.

Am I the only person who thought this product was garbage? First of the packaging is unsanitary, secondly it costs $25 here in Australia and had zero pigmentation, I used this after hearing rave reviews and I hardly suffer from any bags at all and this made my eyes look worse! I'm 19 and it made me look like I had wrinkles! I tried setting it with under eye powder and only using a tiny amount. Worst under eye concealer ever I'll stick to my Bobbi Brown creamy concealer and Clinique pen
Age: 19-24 Skin: Oily, Fair-Medium Hair: Brunette Eyes: Brown
I bought this concealer based on the reviews I have seen/read. I have to say i'm not that impressed. The sponge tip is pointless and a hassle & the product itself isn't anything special. I dont know how this would cover anyones dark circles. The coverage was very light when i applied it & blended it in & creased about 5 minutes after even after setting it with a loose powder. Skip this if you want a full coverage concealer
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination, Fair, Cool Hair: Brunette, Wavy, Medium Eyes: Hazel
I absolutely love this concealer. I don't use it under my eyes because it creases on me but it works really well around my nose! I get really red around my nose and this concealer completely cancels it out and the applicator works really well for really getting into the angles of your nose. Blends flawlessly and lasts all day when set with a powder! It also lasts forever for me because I only use it around my nose. I've had this product since July and use it everyday around my nose and still have about a third left! Only problem is that the last one I owned before repurchasing was defective. The twist up mechanism stopped working so I couldn't get any product into the sponge. I wound up having to take the top off and transfer it into a lot of jar which made me lose a lot of product. Other than this glitch, LOVE this product and I absolutely recommend it!

My main issue is my under eye circles. This works incredibly well for me. I bought the shade Medium, and I'm about a Mac C5 in Face and Body. It's full coverage, but not thick. Highly recommend. The only problem is the packaging; it cracks easily.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Sensitive, Medium Hair: Brunette Eyes: Brown
I actually really like this product! :) I have used several drugstore concealers for years, however, never quite found the one for me. I would use concealer and foundation and it seemed like my dark circles were always kind of...un-coverable. Ever since using this product in the shade Neutralizer, it seems to brighten my face and complete the "naturally flawless face' look that I try to go for. This concealer lasts me all day. I walk to my college from my apartment, all around campus, and back to my apartment, and it doesn't budge! Im very glad I got this concealer. :)
