So far this is the best concealer I've found. Doesn't look cakey or wrinkle the undereye area, and has good coverage. I have a bit of melasma under the eyes and this alone can't cover it, but if I use a bit of Benefit Erase Paste with this concealer on top, I'm good. The only drawback is the pump absolutely sucks. It's absolutely impossible to control how much comes out and I usually wind up with 3-5 times what I actually need. Very wasteful.

I have mixed feelings about this product. On the one hand, I do love the coverage this gives me under my eyes and on blemishes. I am nw20 foundation an got the same shade of this, it is perfect as it actually is a little lighter than my foundation without looking stupid. However, there is so much waste due to the pump, it pumps out 3x what i need and its not exactly a cheap product. If they could fix this i would give 5 stars! A good alternative is Loreal illuminating concealer (something like that) and this comes in better packaging.

I first discovered this concealer about six months ago and absolutely fell in love.
The longevity and coverage is amazing - so much so that I find if I'm just going out for an hour or so it gives enough coverage on my under eye area and any blemishes to mean I can go without foundation.

I use the shade NC15 which is a perfect match for me and always pale enough to work with any foundation I use with it. I find it blends very well with a the Real Techniques sponge or any other beauty blender.

I'm pleased it comes with a pump however I only gave the packaging of this product two lipsticks as after dropping this product on the floor a few months after purchasing it, I was surprised when it completely smashed meaning I had to buy a new one. Considering the price and the fact I'm really clumsy so it would handy if the packaging was a little stronger and could withstand more. However, this is only a minor drawback and probably not an issue for people clumsy than myself!

This is my favorite concealer. I deal with hyperpigmentation and dark spots and this concealer is perfect for covering them. I used this in NW40 and I find it seamlessly blends into my skin and leaves a matte finish behind. I use it by itself and set with powder for a natural look or over foundation for an airbrushed look. Just make sure to set with powder and it will last all day. It's also great for traveling. Because it is in a small glass bottle with a pump, I put it in my makeup bag and use it to touch up my makeup or to do a quick make up look.

Hands down the most AMAZING concealer out there. It is my holy grail. I would consider myself a huge concealer junkie, every time I go to Sephora or a drugstore I always have to leave with a new concealer with the hope that it could be *the one*. 4 years later, I've finally found it!!! This concealer covers up my dark circles perfectly, and does not crease whatsoever. It stays perfect ALL DAY, without even having to set it. I have a terrible habit of looking at myself in the mirror and reapplying concealer every hour because it is always smudging, fading, or creasing. However, with this concealer I don't even need to worry or touch up once. It sits perfectly matte and bright, doesn't oxidize at all. Though some may say that the pump and the glass packaging are cons, I think it can work well if you're very careful. One tiny pump really does go a long way, so I'd recommend pumping into a small container/unused contact case.

Amazing coverage! I rarely get zits anymore but i have post inflammatory hyperpigmentation aka brown spots due to my idotic self popping pimples in the past. This conceals perfectly without oxidizing and lasts without smudging. MAC wasn't lying when they said it was tranfer resistant. I'm in taekwondo and I sweat buckets, yet after 2 hours later I applied it to my problem areas this HG concealer still stayed on my face without fading! My only issue is the pump. Once squirt is enough to literally cover half of my face and dispenses way to much which is a total waste because of the price. What I've learned to do is store the excess concealer in an empty eyeliner jar for future use and I'm basically rock solid from there!

I'm extremely pale, so naturally, my veins are translucent through my hands, wrists, and of course under eye area. The lightest shade seems to be pretty bright. I'm more pinky-blue toned, and mac recommends NW15 instead of NC15, but I beg to differ.

NW15 is too dark to be honest. NC15 isn't that yellow-y, its very bright, and matches better for fair skin.

I use it to conceal any facial redness, spots, and under eye area. It does a fairly good job, but its pretty thick and it's a little difficult to blend. I recommend moisturizing the eye area first or using a primer. It could do a pretty good job as a high lighter too for the brow bone.

The biggest flaw for me is the pump applicator. It just pumps out way too much and is nearly impossible to control the pressure in which you press it. I just use a small cosmetics container or an unused contact case and store a pump in there, then use the amount I want.

This is my HG concealer. I have dark undereye circles, and this is the best product I have found. I have tried many - Clarins, Nars, and several that I can't even remember, but keep going back to this one. It covers, highlights a little without being obvious, and doesn't need powder to set it. I avoid powder because no matter what I do it accentuates wrinkles. Also, there are no sparkles, and it's a soft matte finish. I know some people say it's drying, but I moisurize the eye area a few minutes before using this, and it's fine for me. The only negative is the packaging. I guess they have to seal it to prevent it from drying out, but I wish the pump would dispense 1/4 the amount at most. I get around this by having a little sample container, and dispensing a couple of pumps into that, which lasts me over a week. A little goes a long way. The shade I use is NW20. I've experimented with NC 20, and NC 15, but they are too bright and unnatural looking for me. It may take a couple of tries to find the right shade, but MAC is great about giving you samples!
