I really love this concealer. I have a slightly different use for it though. I do use it for dark circles however I also use it as an eyeshadow primer. I don't have the money for UDPP and l'oreal decrease is hard to find where I live. I absolutely love this as an eyeshadow primer, my eyeshadow won't crease for usually about 10 hours. That's amazing because I have oily lids. I'm also quite pale so this is good for covering up the veins on my eye lids.
It does help with redness though as well, around my nose and on my cheeks. It doesn't do a lot for acne but if I need to I will put a dot on a blemish and let it sit for a minute or so then use a barely damp cosmetic wedge sponge and dab it until it blends in and it does help a little.

I use this more as a highlight rather than a concealer. A little goes a long, long way...I've had it for a while and I still have half of the bottle left. I use this under my eyes, this is definitely not what you want to use for acne (it won't cover it AT ALL). I first use benefit's erase paste under me eyes, then revlon age defying concealer, and then this. I really highlights underneath my eyes pretty well.
If you're looking for a full coverage concealer, this is definitely not it. I feel like there are better highlights out there rather than this one...so I probably wouldn't purchase this again unless it were on sale.

This is actually a good dupe of the Lancome Under-Eye Concealer.
It is very brightening and has a luminous finish... it is more of a highlighting concealer, and won't cover blemishes. But it really brightened up my dark circles, browbone, around my mouth and around my nose!

Ok first of all I'm just starting out to wear make up and I'm still trying different kinds of concealers and stuff , but I gotta say this concealer has got to be the worst I ever tried. First of all I have really bad dark circles, and this dang little thing just won't cover them up. Like if I really wanted them to cover my dark circles I would really need to put on a lot of this concealer on, like about 3 or 4 times at least, sometimes more. So if your thinking on getting this concealer don't it's a waste of money and time, plus a disappointment.

After they stopped making my favorite concealer, Maybelline Everfresh :'( I needed to find a new one. I thought this would be good because the color and packaging were almost the same! I normally like CG, but this product is no good. The lightest shade is still to dark, and it doesn't even match up with my CG foundation. The color also oxidizes. The formula is thick, but yet it doesn't do much to cover up zits. The consistency also makes it hard to blend, so you kind of end up with tacky dots that are darker than your foundation. Not worth it. I occasionally use it as an undereye concealer, just to try to use up the tube since I can't return it. Don't waste your time on this one. :(

I hate giving bad reviews on products but i'm going to have to say that I am not a fan of this product. I needed a concealer for acne. I've been on the hunt for a good drugstore one and I thought that this would be it but it's not. I feel that the formula is way too thin to cover up anything. There are a few postive things about it. 1. It is a good alternative as an eyeshadow base. 2. It mositurizes my skin nicely and 3. It somewhat covers my undereye circles as well as brighting my eyes. Overall, as a product I would have to say it is a fail and I don't think I would purchase it again.

This is a good concealer for dark circles because it seemed to brighten my skin up a bit. I didn't like it for covering acne as much. If you are looking for a dark circles concealer I recommend it, but not for covering blemishes

I have been on the search for a really good alternative eyeshadow primer because I don't want to pay the high prices for primers such as Urban Decay Primer Potion or 2 Faced. I saw a video on youtube of a girl who said she has been using this concelear for years now as a primer and it works amazing so I thought why not? I got it from Walmart for about $6 and I have to say its an AMAZING eyeshadow primer. Absolutely love it and I can finally wear eyeshadow without worrying about creasing :D I tried it for the first time yesterday and... I wore it for about 8 hours and the shadow stayed perfectly in place.. very happy.

I do not like this concealer. Even though it is marketed as an under-eye concealer, I used this in other areas to see how well it worked. For use under my eyes, this did not work at all. The formula of the concealer is way too thin and after awhile, building it up can make it look really cakey. For other areas of my face, I found the same problem with the thin formula making it difficult to conceal. I didn't find that this had the "skin-brightening pigments" that covergirl claims; it did make my eyes look brighter but that was only because I had it in a shade lighter than my natural skin tone(classic ivory). When wearing this concealer, it seemed to fade pretty quickly and did not last all day. And something weird that happened, that the MUAer earlier mentioned, was the blue cap broke just from closing it. Definitely not a repurchase for me... I'm back to the hunt for the perfect concealer :(

EWW !! I boguht this wanting to cover my dark circles, but this offers a light-medium coverage only. This product isn't exactly cakey, but doesn't look natural on skin imo.It has very strong pink undertones. One thing I have to mention is that the blue cap cracks..by just closing& opening the package a few times. .

I usually use the Invisible concealer, but this was on sale for $2 something at Walmart, so I decided to try it. I don't like it because the shades are too light. Even the darkest shades are too light. Once I use the rest of this, I'm switching back to the Invisible concealer.

This is my HG concealer. I've been using it for 3 years now, and I love it. I have acne prone skin, and this helps to cover my red spots and blemishes very well. Also, the tube lasts for a very long time. I've had my tube for almost a year now, and it still has product left in it. Cheap concealer that lasts forever and works great ... what's not to love?

This is an amazing concealer! I'd been using the Coastal Scents Cam Quad for quite a long time, and I decided it was taking too long (and too much effort) to use it anymore. So I picked up this liquid one. It covers up my under eye circles, redness, and blemishes, with literally only one layer! This is the best liquid concealer I've EVER USED. By the way, I got it from Target.

Wow, I am surprised by the number of comments about this concealer being "watery" and not covering blemishes. This is my favorite concealer--actually, the only one I use, after trying NARS stick concealer, Lancome tube concealer, and many others. I have used CG Fresh Complexion exclusively for years and love it! And I'm 39, with far-from-perfect skin!
The shade range is somewhat limited, and runs quite pale. I use "Creamy Natural," even though I have ivory skin. But it is a perfect match for my skin; blends very well; and lasts a good 12-16 hours, even on my oily skin. It is the most carefree concealer I've ever used, and I use it under my eyes, as an eyelid base, and on blemishes. I just dot on, pat on, and go (sometimes I "set" my concealer with a bit of powder, too). I guess this is a product you need to try for yourself, as the opinions on MUA are quite polarized. Me? I'm happy to shell out $5 about once a year for a product that just does the job perfectly.

I found this product to be very light but it also covered my extreme dark circles very well considering .......I will definetly buy again...it blends very well....I also found it to match my skin very well (Classic Ivory) ...and when wearing throughout the day i found that i can barely feel it at all.....very nice, non drying and affordable.....I prefer this formula over the "stick" concealer Ive always used..definetly recomend this...."I purchased this of my own free will and money"

i am a teenage girl with some acne, and i found that this product is pretty good. i use a sponge to blend it, and then some powder to set it.
there are people on here that say if you try to layer it, it will become cakey. ive found this is true for MOST concealers
if you use a bit on a sponge, blend, and use some powder, you should be ok.

It was way too sheer to cover anything on my face. I bought it hoping that it'd conceal my dark under eye circles, but it does nothing for me. The color I got was Soft Honey and it was too dark for me (it's better for tan girls). I tried using it on a fading acne scar, and it didn't work on that either. It kind of settles into the fine lines too. I think this would work better on people who have very little to cover up because this is way to sheer to hide anything.
Now I just use it as a "lip concealer" under my tinted lip gloss 'cos I don't want to toss out a huge tube of this. I have pigmented lips (I hate how dark they are!) and it works okay at canceling out the purplish color of my lips.

I ended up returning this product because it looked really unnatural on my skin and I've had to try two different shades, and neither of them even matched my skin tone or at least looked natural on me. It had kind of a Grey tone to it that kind of made my under eyes look worse.

I use this concealer for most of my problem areas, a.k.a. redness and under eye circles. It works pretty well and isn't cakey, this is decent for a drugstore concealer. I am sure it cannot compare to say, the $40 ysl concealers, but eh, I'd never spend that much on a product I use over tiny areas of my face anyway. Personally, I like the "watery" consistency of this concealer, as I do not like putting heavy products underneath my eyes. :)

I frankly don't know what I was thinking buying this product. I ran out of my MAC studio sculpt and There is no mac counter or sephora in my city. Anyway, the consistency is watery and If you layer it, it starts looking cakey. It does not cover my blemishes and makes redness look kind of a lavenderish purple...really.. it's ridiculous. I got the color "Creamy Natural" -- which really tells you NOTHING about what shade I am... Overall, I would NOT buy this again since it is not suited for my liking.. Maybe a teenager who is just beginning to start wearing makeup or someone who does not need full coverage would benefit from it but, then again, it is Cover Girl... so it might not work out for them either..
