I am so happy I found this stuff! I have dark circles under my eyes and I have never found anything that could cover them. I also have redness on my cheeks that caused me to load up the foundation to cover.
When I tried this concealer for the first time, I was so surprised and so happy. You need the tiniest bit to cover the under-eye area and any problems I've had with the product (creasing or looking cakey) has been from me using too much - I'm not used to having to use such little product! It erased my under-eye cirlces as well as the redness on my cheeks and it melts right into the skin.
Benefit says if you're unsure of the color, go with #2, which is what I went with and I have fair skin and it was great. Love it!

At first, I was very excited about this product. I applied it before work one morning and my skin looked flawless. Even my husband commented on how great my skin looked that day. However, by the time I actually got to work (an hour later) I was shocked to look in the mirror and see that it had pretty much melted off my face. And this is in the middle of winter, so its not like heat or humidity was the problem. Setting it with powder did not help in the least. I tried it a couple more times just to make sure, but it was the same result every time. It has just about the worst staying power of any concealer I have ever tried.

HG material by far. I never used concealor before since their was no need until I started breaking out. The break outs left me with some serious scarring. When I used this, I felt like I had celebrity status skin. I mean a perfect, smooth canvas. It is so blendable, it melts right into skin. I mean my skin looks perfect although it is the exact opposite. The price tag left me a little hesitant but I've never used anything any cheaper that can nearly compare.

Finding a concealer that works for you has to be one of the most frustrating things. It has to cover whatever you want it to cover without looking cakey or mask like, you don't want it to settle into pores or fine lines, you need it to stay put and it has to work with whatever else you are using on your skin!
This works for me, it stays put on my oily T zone areas with or without my primer, it does not settle into pores, it does not settle into fine lines providing I warm it between my fingers and dab it on, it covers redness totally (don't you hate it when you conceal a spot and it just fixes the outside and then the red pimple breaks through like some glowing beacon!!!) and it doesn't look masky or flakey or heavy because I can use such a light hand. I put this on OVER my tinted moisturiser or liquid/mousse foundation and then set the whole lot afterwards.
Funnily enough the Benefit MUA said this wouldn't work on me/my skin - I'd just got it into my head this was the one I wanted, so they don't always know what they are tallking about. This will last me for ages and I will repurchase.

i have found my HG product for almost everything. except undereye concealer. grrr. i've been on the hunt for ages, and i thought that perhaps this little guy would be the one. for a while, i was convinced that boiing was doing it for me. that is, until one day i noticed how quickly this stuff really did melt right off and disappear into makeup oblivion (the real cause of smog, i swear). and how it seemed to dive immediately into every tiny crease in my undereye. and how it was so greasy feelin' that it was magnetically attracting my waterline liner to my undereye, effectively giving me the distinctly gross illusion of having not just circles, but circles covered in crappy concealer and eyeliner!
all in all, my love for this product lasted about a week or two, because as i mentioned above, i quickly began to realize that this concealer, while it THEORETICALLY does what it needs to do, it REALISTICALLY sucks. i hate to say it, but it truly is a peachy concealer that counters purple circles wonderfully, but countering circles for 5 minutes and then deciding to creep off my face or dive into my lines does not a good product make. one should never have to touch up undereye concealer 4 times in a day. and no, setting it with powder doesn't help. it instead kind of functions like scrim-shaw, you know, where you carve the design into the piece and then spread ink over it to highlight where you scratched? yeah, same idea. your lines will actually wave at you.
bobbi brown's corrector will be next.

this product is really greasy and you have to set it with powder or it will wipe right off. i've found that it works great on blemishes but not under my eyes. i will probably continue to use it for the occasional red spot, but look for something better for dark circles.

I like this concealer a lot, it is the only concealer that really hide my big dark under eye circle. It stay on all day and blend well into my skin.

Way too creamy so it accentuates lines and dry patches. It creases a lot faster cause it's so creamy. The only good thing is that it blends well but other than that i think it makes it appear as if i wear a lot of under eye concealer when i only apply it lightly but i guess the consistency is thick it appears that way.

I was in need of a good concealer, So I thought I would treat myself to Benefit's Boi-ing!
My skin tends to have a few blemishes that never seem to dissapear so finding a product that would cover these daily was a must have!!!
I'd read numerous reviews of how bad the product was however i still desperatly wanted to try it out.
I chose the lightest colour becuase my skin is very pale, at first glance i thought this would be slightly to dark for me....And it was! When I put it on you could tell the colour match was no where near.
But as soon as you blend it in properly with your finger/or brush the concealer blends in with your skin and you can hardly tell it's there. I find building up fine layers gives you more control over the product. It builds up an even and flawless coverage this way too.
And as soon as you put foundation and powder over top of it, it gives the most natural look.
I think the secret to this product is to blend it, if you just pat it on and don't blend very well it's likely to go cakey and look obvious on your face. However if used properly then it's an amazing product!!
Definatly worth a try!

I'm always on the look out for concealer so I'll always try them out. This one is ok, but to me its nothing great. It moderately covers my dark circles but isn't great for covering up blemishes or any other spots. I find it doesn't last even with a primer and I have to keep retouching it. The only thing thats really great about this product (for me) is the texture. It goes on smoothly with a brush or with your finger. A lot of concealers are dry and hard to blend but I don't have that problem with this concealer. I'll use it until its gone but I won't repurchase.
