I absolutely LOVE this concealer! It provides full coverage, doesn't crease or cake up, and lasts all day until you wash it off. This concealer does everything I need it to do and more!!

I have very fair skin which means a pretty consistant blue tint around my inner under eye. I have tried a lot of different concealers but none have been light enough for my skin texture or pigmented enough to cover blue. none that is, until this product. the pigment is great and it's gell texture works into skin beautifully.
my only complaints or watch-outs are that a VERY little goes a long way. seriously. the smallest possible amount. I have used every day for almost a year and i don't think ive made the smallest dent. also, the product is a little shiny on so make sure to use a setting powder to create a matte look. I got the lightest color which does almost act as a highlighter for puffy eyes as well.

I have dark under eye circles (pretty much a very very dark purply-blue). This concealer has more of an oily sheer coverage which only works at one angle... therefor this did not cover anything. I am very disappointed and will be returning this

I bought this last week and it has already become my HG product. I have pretty dark under eye circles, and this is so amazing at covering them! I've never seen my under eyes as nice as they are with this. I fell in love right after the first application.
I have pretty pale skin, and usually get really light concealer. I ended up going with the neutral medium because it says it matches 70% of skin tones, but was worried it would be too dark. I was so happy once I got it though, because it matches perfectly! If you are flip-flopping between the ultra fair and the neutral medium, go with the medium.
I do agree that it is a bit thick, but I have used many, many products that were easier to apply, but had nowhere NEAR the coverage that this does. I just warm it up by rubbing it between two fingers to make it smoother, dab a tiny amount where I need it (a little goes a long way!) and I never have any trouble applying it this way. I even use this on breakouts and around my nose to cover redness.
I can't stress enough, give this product a try. I had just given into thinking I would just have to look tired and drained all the time because of my circles, but this has changed everything. I bought it on the It Cosmetics website, and for $24 it is worth every penny. Love, love, love it!

I have severe undereye circles, most holy grail undereye concealers for others dont do anything for me. I used to use a primer then bb corrector then a concealer or two (bb then mac select cover up) then powder. This is how bad they r and This took so long and looked cakey and overdone.
My problems with undereye concealers:
- sheer coverage that doesnt cover the circles
- medium or full coverage that look cakey
- longetivity, after a while u look at the mirror to see nothing under ur eyes
-dryness: accentuating fine lines and looking cakey making me look old
My undereye concealer beliefs(10 years wondering:)):
No undereye concealer is perfect
I dont beleive in non creasing concealer especially when u have bad circles u'll need a thicker kind of concealer which is most likely to crease. Plus i think that if u put a concealer on a baby's undereye its gonna crease..so young ladies terrified from fine-lines and wrinkles dont be scared ur concealer is making it look worse. I think that u have to use powder To set ur concealer to prevent creasing..
Onto the review:
Bye bye undereye:
- long lasting
- moisturizing and doesnt look dry or cakey at all
- a tiny bit goes a long wayyyy ( i always dont take this advice since my circles r bad) but i u use a lot it will not look ok and it will cake and crease horribly.
- dont need powder to set
The way i use it:
-I use a face primer all over my face ( i use givenchy acti mine)
- i put a tiny dot on my finger and warm it up a little with another finger then pat under the eye to blend
( at first it looks ok but then i thought it wasnt enough coverage for my circles)
- so i let the first layer set for a min or two then using the same technique again but only a small dot and blend
- a turn off for some ladies that they might find it too shiny ( i avoid powder cuz it makes my undereyes dry and accentuates lines even the tiniest amount- remember a moisture look looks more youthful and fresh than a powdered look)
- i wait for the second layer to set the. I find pating it gently with a clean finger diminishes the shine a bit:)
Imp: ( to be honest) it might crease a LITTLE nothing compares to other concealers creasing on me ( all of them did horribly on me) so later if there is one line creasing under my eyes patting it just once gets rid of the problem.
Althought the review is long (sry just wanted to help) it doesnt take long or has many steps. I dont need a corrector with this concealer. Creases a tinyyy bit better than all concealers i've and i tried manyyyyy. Moisturizing and non drying... Finally i have m circles covered without feeling made up dry or 70 yr old!!! I luv it holyyy grailllll finalyyy :))))
I think the price is great for the amount u get and ull need a small amount.. The packages is sanitary and this is what imp..

When I first tried this concealer, I wasn't sure about the thick, greasy consistency, as other reviewers have mentioned. I find that mixing it with just a dab of Soap and Glory Hocus Focus Visual Flaw-Softening Lotion makes it more creamy and easy to apply, and doesn't make my eye area look cakey or dry. It gives it a soft glow and makes it easy to set with powder.

I ordered this from qvc and when I received it I was excited. Well this is not how they described on tv. This is a thick cream consistency that does not blend easily. When you apply be careful not to use more than a micro dot or it will be way too much product. After work with this you need to add powder to make it look more natural. Alone this screams concealer as it looks thick and shiny alone......don't get me wrong it will help cover dark circles if you want to work at it but it's pretty pricey for all that work.

Out of all the under eye products I have tried for covering my dark circles, this one is the best for working on its own. I love that it gives a boost of moisture as well.
For those gals that really want to cover up those under eye circles. Use an Orange color corrector. A cheap one is ben nye. I know bobbi Brown has one too but I don't have that kind of money. I use the orange corrector first and then I put this on top. It adds moisture and coverage on top of the orange corrector.
Dark circles have a strong blue pigment. It is hard to cover those bad boys up with just a skin colored concealer. I highly recommend trying a orange color corrector by the brand of your choice first and then putting something like this product on top that will conceal more and will be good for that thin skin under the eyes

I bought this in a kit also - from the Canadian Shopping Channel. And, to be honest, I was also disappointed initially. I got the 2nd lightest shade and thought it looked too dark, even though it "should" have worked going by all the blather on tv about what shade to choose. I was also quite put off by how thick and "gluey" this concealer was....as I tapped it on with a finger or patted it on with a brush, it seemed to pull away the skin under my eyes as I lifted my finger or the brush. The texture reminded me of Benefit's Erase Paste, in that it was so thick and pastey. I see others have compared it to Erase Paste also. Anyway, I set it aside for a few weeks and then came back to it and I think I've found the trick to using this successfully and that is to warm the product slightly on the back of my hand or between my fingers before applying it. I apply with my middle finger (that always seems to work better for me than my ring finger) and then blend it out with a brush. As Jamie Kern said, you can use this as foundation in a pinch and while I don't do that, I do bring it down onto my cheeks, where I have some redness and broken capillaries and I find I can pretty much not bother with foundation after that if I am in a hurry. I set the concealer under my eyes with Bare Escentuals Well-Rested and the results are actually pretty good. I find this doesn't accentuate under-eye fine lines nearly as much as some other concealers and it works well for areas that aren't "under-eye" (maybe they should consider renaming this product). So, all in all, it's much better than I thought initially and is "repurchase worthy", but I'm not entirely sure I would repurchase as I'm always on the lookout for "something better" when it comes to concealers.

I purchased this in a kit as a today's special value on QVC - it also came with a double ended brush for concealer/foundation, bye bye pores powder, and the heavenly brush for the powder. I had been eyeing the bye bye pores for some time so I jumped on the chance to buy the kit at the price (around $60 for all 4 products). I am disappointed in this concealer and honestly have no idea how this covered that model's tattoo on the QVC presentation. I got it in the tan and it may be a bit too dark for me. Since I got this on auto-delivery from QVC, I changed the next cycle for the medium shade in hopes that it will do a better job. To be honest the only reason I don’t cancel the auto-delivery is because the brushes are so amazing (the bye bye pores powder is good too). I agree with other reviewers that this is extremely thick and shiny, it was hard to use and would probably benefit from a layer of primer before application. This may work on someone with lighter under eye circles, but if you have very dark circles like me, I’m not sure it’s worth the money.
