**Update**
This really took a few times to get used to, but now I'm on my third tube. I rarely ever buy a product more than once or twice. I guess I got used to the creamy stick consistency and learned how to blend it nicely with my a sigma concealer brush. The key is to dab it on and blend outside of it and try not to touch the part you've dabbed...just stipple it slightly to push the product into the blemish. Yes I paid $90 CDN each time...and if you're lucky enough to have one of the 3 tints blend with your skin then it should work well for you. I don't like it for under eye concealer because it sort of cakes and shows fine lines. I prefer Giorgio Armani or YSL Touche Éclat for that because those are more watery. On a regular day I would just take the stick and dab it on whatever imperfections I have and blend it out with a small sigma concealer brush. I don't even need foundation after that. It is worth the hype. Unfortunately it costs an arm and a leg. Lol

Okay, so after reading so many rave reviews of this super awesome concealer I just had to try it for myself. I usually use a brightener under my eyes as a concealer. (YSL Touche Eclat is so awesome BTW.)

I find this concealer extremely hard to blend under my eye area especially since I don't want to pull on the delicate skin in that area. It doesn't settle into the fine wrinkles which is great. The color is a bit weird. I don't find it covers that well on my dark blemished spots on my cheeks. I use a Clinique concealer in those areas and it seems to cover better.

So at $85 CAD I cannot say it is worth it. I do love the packaging and it makes it simple for application. It is a beautiful tube and lovely to look at. Other than that, as a concealer I just think it's too overpriced and not that effective in my opinion. I'll keep using it and maybe I'll get more practice and be able to use it more effectively. This product is definitely overhyped. Clinique makes a better concealer and in more color choices as well.

I agree with lisamarie, this product is sooo overrated. I got this in Beige, nice match for my NW25 skin, but there's just nothing special about this concealer- I can think of three that are at least as good and actually more workable - Bobbi Brown's stick concealer in many shades, Tarte's Smooth Operator, stick as well, in three shades and Urban Decay 24/7 concealer pencil in eight shades, with UD being favorite..
Save your money girls unless you are really in love with it already for whatever reason.

This must be one of the most over-rated make-up products; I fell under the spell of the 5 star ratings on department store websites as well as this one and purchased it, without trying it on in person. I have tried many (countless, really) concealers and I hate to spoil the party but this concealer SUCKS; it is no better than a drug store stick concealer for a multitude of reasons. It cakes, it accentuates dry patches, and it does not cover blemishes all that well; so ladies if you have less than perfect skin,or god forbid a blemish, don't count on this concealer coming to your rescue. And the icing on the cake: it does not last more than a few hours!! Take this review seriously; I am not paid, I am a scientist who approaches all decision making with objectivity. I have a weird obsession with makeup and have tried many brands (even traveling to SE Asia to experience the japanese/korean makeup scene) and I can categorically, unequivocally say that I would never waste even $10 on Cle de Peau concealer again.

I loooove this concealer (beige) by cle de peau! I basically use it instead of foundation, before I apply eye-make up, blush and mineral powder. It's very light but does a wonderful job at covering even dark under-eye-circles. It is also not greasy at all and doesn't clog my pores (rather the opposite... it does what it's supposed to: conceals them...). When I bought the concealer, I also received a generous amount of samples of some of their other new products. I was extremely impressed by their new (bar of) cleansing soap (savon). Usually soaps would dry out my skin or make it feel "tense" - this one, however, seems to be very gentle and not drying at all. I highly recommend these products!

I am on my 6th tube. My mom as well. We love love love it. It matches my skin tone perfectly, it melts into my skin, stays on all day and does not crease at all, even under the eyes. My HG concealer. I have not found anything remotely as good anywhere else, including Mac (both studio finish and the liquid one in the tube), lancome, shiseido, guerlain, and so on. I keep looking b/c of the price, but in the end I know I will repurchase. One tube lasts 6 mo with daily use.

This concealer works brilliantly for my dark circles. As an individual with prominent round eyes and purple toned circles it has always been a struggle to conceal them without looking like a raccoon until CDP. However, despite its brilliance Cdp is way too expensive. A great and cheaper substitute is Edward Bess's concealer stick.

Only concealer that works for both my under eyes and spots without creasing or caking. Has a thick creamy texture that is very blendable. I use my finger tips to pat in and around to soften edges. Beige perfectly matches my asian skin with yellow undertones. Colour does not oxidise. Good full coverage that stays put even with sweat and imo seems to look better when a little oil starts coming through. Does not irritate my sensitive, acne-prone skin. The packaging is pretty and slightly longer than a liptstick tube but still good for purses. Paid about RM198 for this about a month back. Pretty steep, but I cannot live without it now.

The best concealer, hands down. If you're looking for the creme de la creme of concealers, look no further. This is an emollient, opaque stick base that manages to hide my under eye circles and blemishes with no problem, no dryness or issues with fading. The only thing I have to comment on is that you will DEFINITELY need to set this once applied...it can smudge off if not properly set with powder. Other than that, it is a godsend and worth the $75+ price tag. This replaced my beloved Kevyn Aucoin Surreal Skin Enhancer, which was just way too thick (but provided even more coverage!)

I have extremely dark hereditary circles, and this concealer actually makes them go away! The magic is that it is pigmented enough and opaque enough to hide circles while using only the lightest layer, so it blends better with the skin, doesn't crease (since there's hardly any product on) and looks natural. It is creamy enough to go on smoothly over an eye cream (though not moisturizing enough to use without eye cream), and comes in a convenient and travel-friendly stick format. I am usually the lightest or second-lightest foundation shade, but I still use "beige" because the salmon undertones look more natural on me. I found the shades to be very adaptive despite the heavy coverage. My only gripe is that it can look a bit dry by end-of-day. I like to tap it on with my finger or use a brush. This concealer is truly in a league of its own--I didn't know concealer could perform this well. If you have severe dark circles like me and have given up on finding a good product, this is actually worth the $70 or so.

Edit 3 July 2011: Upon closer inspection and more thorough usage, the shade is a little pink on me... CDP should really consider making more color choices, seriously!

**Review is for the Japanese version (or older version, not sure... my mom got it in Japan not too recently) where the tube packaging is a rectangular prism (and not a cylinder like the pics). Shade is a bunch of Japanese that I can't read followed by "10". I swatched it and compared with the normal shades that my cle de peau counter had and this is pretty much the same as Beige as far as I could tell.***

First off, I'm lucky enough to get this for free as my mom's hand-me-down where she only used 3mm of the product. Yay!!!

But I did look at the price at my local HK department store and it's a whopping 600HKD!! OMG!!! Checked at nordstrom.com and it's 70USD...! So although I said that I would buy this product again, I'm hoping this one stick will last me a lifetime...

The Product itself:
- So creamy. Melts right in. Dreamily creamy yet WEIGHTLESS and doesn't feel cakey at all.
- Color matches perfectly. At first I was scared it'd be too pink for my NC25-30 skintone, but it really blends!!
- Good for both undereye circles AND** acne (as well as acne scars, exhibit A right here). I used to use a more lighter, pinker concealer for my eyes and a yellow-er one for my acne. For some reason this concealer kicks both of their butts which is great for me! :)
- Love the packaging. Twist up tube so I don't have to fiddle with wands (the concealer containers that resemble lipgloss) because I have to dot them on the back of my hand anyway. For this concealer, I softly swipe a bit back and forth (once) on the back of my hand, cap it, and work with that small amount.
- So easy for touch-ups during the day. Easy packaging, can easily be used with fingers, and oh-so-portable.

Cons: Price. Ouch my wallet!

Bottom line: if you can afford it, get it.SOOOOO get it.
