Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination, Medium Hair: Black Eyes: Brown
Price: $17 (Canadian)
Packaging: a thin tube with very small spout that allows you to take out for little; great packaging
My Experience: I think this concealer is fantastic for the undereye area (although some others don't seem to think so). It's creamy outside the tube and rubs onto to a almost powdery silky finish. Works great if you don't have crowsfeet or deep wrinkles around the eye area. I use Matte Light (the product only comes in 2 shades) and use VERY LITTLE. If you apply to much, than you'll have the opposite effect of racoon eyes. It's very concentrated in pigment, so don't use too much.

I liked this when I first bought it, it works so well for blemishes. But the color range is horrible! I haven't tried the light, maybe that'll work for my NC 30 skin? I bought Medium, applied it lightly on some blemishes and thought it looked flawless. But when I did the daylight test....omg...this stuff is ORANGE. It doesn't work under my eyes either because it's such a dry, powdery formula.

i love this concealer! i finally found a concealer that covers my blemishes and whiteheads well and without caking! it lasts all day without fading and covers redness and blemishes so well. you need the smallest amount to do the job. it will last so long. the only thing is that you need to be exfoliated for this not to appear flakey. but nothing a scrub won't fix.
the only thing is that they definitely need a bigger color selection.

So when I bought this the beauty gal specifically stated this is NOT for under eyes. I asked for something for acne and since I don't wear foundation (horrible breakouts). I like that it turns powdery and doesn't dry in a puddle. But use a little and apply with a small brush to blend. (the bottle says use sparingly)

I wouldn't buy this again because I prefer the Urban Decay 24/7 cream pencil concealer, but this is a good product.
However, it can only be worn under makeup, since there are only 2-3 colors, I believe.
You have to use the smallest amount possible, dab it on your trouble spot, and best to use your finger to blend it out.
I stopped using this because with a full coverage face of makeup I always ended rubbing this stuff off.
I recommend it if you do a light dusting of powder or something like that, but under liquid makeup or a bunch of mineral makeup it just buffs... off....

UPDATE: After trying to put this on myself i realized i just couldnt get the flawless affect the lady at the clinique counter did when she applied this on my face. Now when i put this on it comes out looking extremely cakey. ONLY USE THIS PRODUCT IF YOU ARE EXTREMELY SKILLED WITH MAKEUP, otherwise it will end up looking really bad.
I have to say after one day i think this product has held up in the worst scenario. A school dance. When the girl at the clinique counter first put this on me i was really impressed of how it went on (and i also tried it at home and it went on equally as beautiful if that makes a difference) then i started dancing and by the end of the night i was drenched in sweat (gross i know) but even in the pictures when you can see my hair is messed up and my face looks super shiny, you still cant see the zits (and there were a lot) ive concealed. Overall this product is fantastic and personally i am the lightest shade in perfectly real (which is the foundation i wore that night, it looked good too!) and this matched my skin tone.

This was the absolute best thing ever for covering blemishes. I hate you, Clinique, for dicontinuing this! One tube lasted me over a year...you only needed the tiniest bit. When I went to order more I almost cried when it was no longer on the website. It was amazing. Covered EVERYTHING.
Edit: Uh. Nevermind. It IS still on the site. Oops. Whew. Sorry!

Full coverage, turns to powder instantly, blends and looks natural

I was looking for a new concealer, and Clinique was doing "pre-sale" for bonus time, so I let the girl at the counter talk me into this. I instantly fell in love, it's perfect for covering up spots and acne scaring and sometimes (when my face isn't horrible!) I can just wear this with powder and i'm set for the day. I don't find that it's cakey on me, and a little bit does go along way. I love the fact that it's matte, it's like perfectly matte. It has amazing coverage, it reminds me of a foundation, just in concealer form. It's perfect, and yes the tube is small, and it's $15. But a little bit really goes along way. I've had this for a few months now and haven't even made a dent in it yet. And I love that it doesn't come with a wand to apply, and that I can just dot it when I need it and use a baby wipe to wipe the tip so that bacteria doesn't transfer! This is my HG concealer for now, unless I can find something that works better and is a bit cheaper. But I highly doubt i'm going to stray from this!

This works well with blemishes, but not for dark circles. It dries really fast and feels almost like powder. It lasts really long and provides good coverage.
Update: usually whenever I have a zit the treatment I use dries it out a little and if I don't moisturize before putting this on it kind of accentuates the dry skin more than other concealers, however that is fixable.
