I was in love with the Shu Uemura concealer by the time I look on the reviews on MUA and discover this one. I have to buy it immediately. Well I am so glad I did as this is extremely good one. I am a person who can leave without other make up but not without concealer.I have really bad dark circles and all my life I used concealer.So I really try nearly all in the market. This covers extremely well all the circles and is also very good for any face blemishes or marks. Is creamy and VERY long lasting. Even in super hot summer when all other make up is going wrong this stay. I really don't care IF this product have Kaolin in (some MUAer mention that), but i do care that cover ALL i want to hide on my face.
Trust me you canít go wrong with this one and yes is one of the BEST.I donít think I will go back to any other. The color Beige is absolutely perfect for my NC 20/25.I also order in Ivory so I will update about the color. Definitely winner.
UPDATE.I have now and the # Ivory. The Beige is absolutely identical to my skin. BUT i do like & prefer the Ivory for my eyes as is lighter color (not too much ) and is looking better for me. If you are NC 20/25 and costume to wear same color for your eyes & face. then you are better with the Beige color.
UPDATE / After using this 3 months now i can definitely say that Shu Uemura Pro Concealer is longer lasting on the end of the day and don't need re-apply as CDP do.Still very good concealer but my HG is Shu Uemura.

This is my first review on MUA, but I am compelled to write after benefitting from others' comments. I have congnital dark circles and fine lines under my 60-year-old eyes. I have suffered with the BB system (ugh, sinks into every line), Armani (ok, but disappears after several hours), and others that didn't work at all. I found CP after reading about it on MUA, chose beige as a wild guess (I'm 6.5 in GA sculpting cream foundation). After playing around with various techniques, I have found a perfect method for me and would like to pass along what I learned (which mostly reiterates what others have said). The whole secret is how you apply it! Here's what I do to create a well-concealed, smooth undereye, no sinking into fine lines, no caking, stays all day. (1) Bobbi Brown hydrating eye cream on naked undereye area, let it sink in a little but not completely; the cream should be visible when you apply CP concealer on top. Sometimes, instead of naked undereye, I apply PC's superantioxidant gel first...doesn't seem to take away from the good results. (2) With middle finger, tap the top of the concealer to pick up a little bit of product, then tap my middle finger around under-eye area. Tap gently with fourth or baby finger until it disappears. It will initially merge with the eye cream and look funny, but just keep tapping lightly. It will disappear with a few more taps. When I applied with a concealer brush, I put on too much concealer and it accentuated lines, became cakey, and looked disgusting. Also, when I applied after BB eye cream had completely set, the concealer settled into lines. (3) Set with LM Secret Brightening Powder #2.

If I had to pick one item I could take while stranded this would be it. Yes it is expensive and I have tried numerous other concealers only to disappointed with its staying power and coverage, I have this in Ochre and I am a NC 20-25, CDP 020. I do not use this for under eye but as a concealer for the redness and scars on my face, it works and is long lasting on my oily skin. I have yet to be disappointed in a CDP product and I can see why this gets voted one of the best concealers every year.

Where have *you* been all my life cdp? I ordered this very recently after succumbing to the raves on the board. I've been troubled by very dark blue/purple circles under my eyes since I was a child. Genetic and very unfortunate. I've tried MUFE lift & full cover, MAC peach corrector, and Benefit Bo-ing in Medium. Benefit had been my HG due to the incredible shade match but it lacked some staying power and creased a bit. I was hesitant to spend an arm and a leg on a concealer but when you've been plagued w/ such dark circles you reach a point where you're willing to try (and pay for) almost anything. I got this in beige after considering reviews for my shade. Perfect match for my NC-25ish skintone(MAC). I'm shell (30) in Chanel T.I.
It's not always worth your while to follow the crowd in the real world but in the makeup world...stop and listen to raves. Sometimes items truly are worth the hype. This is definitely an instance of that. I had high expectations for this product due to all all I read and I was not disappointed.
Incredibly overpriced and out of my budget but it did what it promised to do...for that I will re-purchase until it's out of production. :-) It really made my dark circles disappear. It hasn't creased and is demonstrating wonderful staying power. I read some complain it was too dry for use. I have combo skin and don't find it too dry in the least. I cleanse and moisturize my face prior to applying though as that is always my skincare routine.
One of a kind product IMO and I wouldn't hesitate to rec to anyone with chronic dark circles. Retails for $68.00
*I've checked out my makeup/complexion when passing by mirrors today and have done a double take everytime simply due to my dark circles being camoflauged so well!*

Started using this in October after lots of convincing from the SA but so many people have said it's the best out there so I decided to try it despite the high price tag. This is indeed a great concealer but you have to moisturize first otherwise it will ook dry and cakey. I tried to use it without my regular eye cream to see and it looked horrible but once I put on eye cream, it was so different. I swipe the concealer onto my ring finger to warm it up and then tap it onto my circles so that it melts. After a few swipes and tapping to cover my entire eye, the circles are gone! I found when I swipe it on my skin directly I do not get the same results, too much product perhaps. Its worked better for me by warming it first. I do swipe directly to spots where I have blemishes and that works fine. Great product for me and actually when I looked at the weight of this to do price comparison to YSL concealer, CDP is 2 or 3 times heavier so the cost is actually about the same.

I'm undecided about this concealer. Maybe I'm using it wrong but it tends to be cakey and seems to accentuate lines instead of softening them. If anyone has any tips on application, please email. For the money, I was hoping this would be my HG of concealers, but alas it's not.

I just wrote a more detailed review for this concealer in Ochre, so now I must write one for Beige...I love this concealer! I recently swapped for both Ochre and Beige, as I am NC 30 for reference and have normal/dry skin. The Ochre is a dead-on match for my face, including my dark under eye circles, but I prefer Beige for covering my dark circles. It seems to "brighten" my under eye area as it is a touch lighter than Ochre. This concealer is creamy and blends so effortlessly. It didn't seetle into my fine lines, and it wore all day. I did set it with my LM Secret Brightening Powder for extra longevity. I have no complaints with this concealer except for the $70 price tag, but luckily I swapped for it. If I ever do run out, I would pay the retail price for it. This concealer holds true to the saying, "you get what you pay for." I found my new HG concealer! *Yay*

The price of this breaks me, but I have no other choice as far as I'm concerned. The best concealer, perfect color in Beige. Be careful to choose the right color for you. On the web sites it may appear that Beige is the darkest shade, it's not. Ochre is. Which is confusing because the same color in Japan is called Porcelain Ochre. Beige is a yellowy ochre color (hence more confusion). Yes, I actually screwed up and dropped $68 plus shipping on the wrong color. I'll put it up for swap. The packaging could be better - it is a twist up, and I end up digging in to the last bit until it is completely used up because it is SO INCREDIBLY expensive!!! But I'll buy it forever.

I bought this after reading all the awesome reviews. However, when i applied it, it was cakey and showed all my lines which i didnt even realize that i had. I tried everything. I tried moisturizing (alot!) before i applied and also warming in my hand first. It immediatly feel into the lines in my hands as well. The stick didn't seem that creamy either. the product i bought sounds nothing like what people are describing! Did i just get an old stick? Is there a trick to applying this? Please help!
Age: 36-43 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium Hair: Black Eyes: Brown
One of the worst concealers out there. I was expecting it to work better because of the high price. It leaves a greyish tone under the eyes - not appealing at all. I would not recommend this.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Dry, Fair Hair: Blond, Wavy, Fine Eyes: Brown
I am actually very dispointed with this. I used to use the Ivory (which was too light, so I mixed with a darker foundation) and I thought I liked it. But I bought beige, which is a great match (not too orangey or pink like most concealers), so I dont need to mix with any foundation. Great, right? WRONG! It is insanely drying and does not cover the way an expensive concealer should. It looks like I used some cheap-o tube of drugstore concealer that has been laying around in my drawer for a few years and got kind of dried out. It doesnt go into the skin, just sort of lays on top and has a very powdery opaque quality. When I look in my magnifying mirror, I can just see little dots of powder laying on my skin. AND It really melts right into those little tiny creases under my eyes and it looks awful! And I hate to try to blend it because I have to press hard and that tugs a lot on my undereye skin (a big no-no!). There are better ones out there that cover well AND go on smoothly and look more natural. For reference, I am 22, have dry/normal skin and I use concealer mostly for covering these lovely dark half-circles under my eyes. I think I reccomend the dior moisturizing one (only 30$!) or the Chanel one in the click-tube with the brush on the end.

My HG concealor. I refused to buy this for many years because I thought the price was outrageous (which it is!) I finally broke down because I just couldn't seem to find a concealor that would cover my dark circles. I thought BB corrector/concealor was o.k. but then I tried CDP and fell in love. Covers better than anything I have ever tried. It stays on and doesn't crease on me at all. I love the packaging as well. I think this will probably last me at least a year so the price isn't SO bad. But I'm not dropping money on every new concealor put out anymore so I am definitely saving a lot there.

This is the least expensive concealer I've ever used. Yes, it is. And I have tried many, many concealers. True, the initial price is more expensive than most others, but it lasts ten times longer! So if you took off a lippie because of the price, put it back! LOL! Now to the important part: this really works and lasts. Cle de Peau, high end to be sure, uses the best of the best ingredients and as a result, you get a smooth concealer with excellent coverage that doesn't crease in the eye area and lasts all day in covering facial flaws/imperfections. I also have this in Ivory and switch to Beige when summer comes. I won't ever be without this fabulous product! Respectfully submitted, colormepink

I don't know why I haven't reviewed this product yet because I absolutely love this concealer ! The shade I have is Beige which for me is perfect (nc20-25 and sometimes nc30 during the summer) I've tried Ochre and Ivory but Beige suits me best. The coverage is great for under my eyes,and it doesn't crease-very little product needed. Also,it lasts a VERY long time,I'm still on my first tube which I bought last year (no joke) ! Although the price is a bit high,it's definately worth it because it's high quality.

I put off buying this concealer for quite a while because I thought that it would be too drying for my eye area. The other reason, of course, is the staggering price. But my dark circles had gone from bad to worse (due to an extremely stressful move from NY to LA over the summer), and I was getting desperate. After trying it out at a Paul Labreque hair salon in NYC, I fell in love with it immedately. I was so surprised at how creamy and natural it looked. It isn't at all drying around my eye area, although I do recommend using a lot of eye cream before applying (Laura Mercier's Eyedration is really good!). My dark circles are pretty bad, so unfortunately I do need to use a lot of product to cover them. But it looks completely natural and never creases (a true miracle!). I have light olive, FFF skin, and Beige is a perfect match! I could not be happier with this product. The price however, (which is now $70 plus tax!) is really hard to get over. But it's well worth it IMO, because it evens out my skin so well by itself, that I don't even need foundation anymore. This is my HG staple for sure! :)

An awesome product, but so pricey. Hard to find unless you live in a bigger city but you can get on Ebay. I also go back and forth on this and the SSE X7 from Kevin Aucoin. You don't need much of this but do need to touch up several times a day.

Okay, I resisted for a long time because I did not want to spend $65.00 for a concealer. I had tried them all (Lorac, LM, Marias, Bobbie Brown) and most with bad results. This is most definitely holy grail! I bought mine at Barneys in Beverly Hills and I suggest that you ask for an experienced CLE MA. This product does not seep into your fine lines, nor does it get in the corners of your eyes. It lasts all day and really looks great. It is well worth the money. You can apply it either with a concealer brush or your finger. The MA suggested that you apply first to your wrist to warm it up a little. Also , a little goes a long way. I expect this tube to last at least a year, which justifies the money spent. I can't recomment this enough for women with deep, dark circles like me!

Ok, i have tried this concealer at least a dozen times. I have worn it on one eye and wore it side by side with my favorite concealer (models prefer) and notice no difference whatsoever. This retails for $65 and its twice as much as any department store concealer. Dont get me wrong, this is a nice concelaer. Wears well, doesnt cake or wear off, but the price tag is just not worth it. I am an NC30 light olive skin and Ochre is a perfect match. But I use Beige in the winter when I am paler and also mix it with Cle de Peau ochre as well. And this review is just for my under eye circles. This concealer is just too slippery and thin for blemishes. (my HG is Shu Uemera mark concealer for blemishes) Also for the really dark areas i prefer Becca concealer. The color range is so limited, (3) that it is very hard to find a good match. This product lasts all day and doesnt cake on me and covers nicely but not spectacularly. I would not repurchase this since i cant see a difference with this.

Love, love, love this concealer! I tried EVERY concealer you can imagine. This is by far the best concealer ever. I buy this in beige for the winter and Ocre for the summer. Well worth the money as a tube lasts forever. No question the best!!!!

The best concealer and I've tried them all. I go back and forth between this and Kevyn Aucoin SSE but lately I prefer the CDP. It's very expensive but worth it in my opinion. I just bought my second one to carry in my purse for touch ups, although it lasts and I don't rarely need touch ups. No creasing, not drying, covers dark circles.
