As a concealer, it isn't a really great product, it doesn't last long enough. However, it works great as a eye make up base, it holds the eye shadow in place. I think it's even better than primer potion by urban decay. The UDPP makes the eyeshadow difficult to smudge, though it does keep the shadow long. But this product holds the eyeshadow as well as the shadow smudges easily on it.

I don't think this is the best concealer out there (I'm still looking for that!), but it is a very competent one. I should mention that I only use it around my eyes though, and not on my face. I use the shade 'Medium Beige' for the under-eye area, and it does a good job of lightening the area. It does crease after a while, but I've found that with every single concealer I've used under my eyes - it's just a question of how quickly it happens. For the price (£12.50), and considering how long it lasts, it's a very good buy.

let me start out by saying that i first started using this concealer when i HAD no lines. i used it for about 10 years, starting at 17!! it used to work WONDERS...completely made my face look flawless. i never even though about using another concealer! the texture, color, and price were all perfect.
but a few months ago, i noticed that throughout the work day, my under eye area was looking completely parched. i would come back from lunch and notice TONS of caking and lines, making me look 10 years older!! yes, i do use eye cream and even with eye cream, where other concealers worked ok, this one still dried out on me. i don't know why it stopped working so well, maybe my skin just changed. i wish that i could still use this but it seems as though i "outgrew" it =-(
since it worked better for me when i *had* no lines, perhaps they should change the name to something other than "line smoothing" concealer.
if i ever find a way to make this work again, with a particular eye cream or something, then i will repurchase. but as of right now, it doesn't look like i will =(

So I have been using this concealer for about 2 weeks now and so far so good. I bought this not for its “line smoothing” claims but because of it’s texture it felt light, NOT greasy and NOT drying. It did not cake and stayed for basically the whole day. I use it as an eye and spot concealer. I tend to stay up late so sometimes so I think I need something with more coverage but most of the times it does a pretty good job. As for packaging I typically like tubes because I can squeeze ever last bit. I’ll wait and see weather I would buy it again.

This has really good coverage. It does smooth out the lines a little, as the name says. On me it lasts all day. My only wish is that they had more shades.

I gave this product a '3' for everything because that's what it is to me, a perfectly workable concealer that does everything you could want from one. It's a good colour match for me, blends well whilst maintaining good coverage, is suitable for blemishes as well as uneven tones, and is just good overall. But it is not HG stuff simply because sometimes it cakes up or even flakes as my skin dries out a little in the course of a day, and because I prefer cream concealers. But this is a very good everyday concealer, but not so much when you might need a little extra help.

I am going to purchase this again since I lost it. I am a brown skinned black woman with a little darkness under my eyes and sometimes bags. I like how this blended really well with my skin tone, and did not cake. I've been using the make concealer that comes in a small jar thingy--and it is too dry, cake, and light for my skin. And the price for it isn't too bad either. and its easy to apply. if you can find one to match your tone, go for it! just dont make the mistake of applying this to blemishes! i did this, and yikes!

I really like this concealer, and I think I've tried every brand on the market. I love that it's thick enough to offer real redness coverage, but still thin enough to use under my eyes. I use the wand to dab the concealer, and then a brush to blend it in. I've had no problems with caking. I'd definitely re-purchase this product.

I really liked the consistency and coverage of this product, but after having used it for a few months realized that the color (light) is too dark, and as it's their lightest shade I won't repurchase.

Maybe they have changed the formula since some of the previous reviews, as I really like this concealer. I have tried soooooooo many high end and low end concealers....my last fav was maybelline age rewind but I might like this better. The maybelline can look cakey halfway through the day but this is still smooth and flawless. This concealer is creamy, thick, and soooo smooth. blends in to my skin perfectly and really does mask fine lines well. I use a powder over it (specifically mac studio fix) and it does not get cakey or turn colors....just looks perfect. I had to dab a tiny bit extra under my eyes as I have very very very aful bags under my eyes, but it hasn't worn off in the slightest and I look fresh and beautiful even after working all day. This also works wonders on blemishes....a little dab and they are covered all day. doesn't rub off raised blemishes like most concealers (making them look worse...eww!). Just keeps me pretty and perfect. I think I might convert permanently to this product!

CONS: I bought this with high hopes. Ive just had no luck with under eye concealers. Ive tried Benefit Boi-ing, Vincent Longo Creme Concealer, MUFE Full Cover Extreme Camo Creme, Bobbi Brown, MAC, Physicians Formula, the list goes on, and now this. My under area is in pretty bad shape. Im only 19 but it almost looks scaley. I look like I have the under eye area of a much older woman. All of the above concealers including Clinique line smoothing only emphasize my scaliness/dryness.
PROS: This is a great concealer for blemishes. If I have a pimple I just dab on a little bit and pat it with my finger and it covers beautifully, and lasts too.
I dont know why this works so poorly for my under eye area. I blame my eyes, not this concealer. If anyone out there has similar problems as me, could they please point me in the direction of a good concealer/!

im new to makeup..and this was one of the first things i bought...it conceals the dark spots on my face and under eye....and maybe a very little bit of the lines...its simple and for someone who is starting out....i didnt really know what to look for..i would buy it again...if there were no other concealer out there!!!but now i know i have more options!

I'm on my (..) 5th tube of this? I use this for spot concealing on my face and for my undereyes on ocassion. My skin is a hard to match olive tone, and I use this in medium honey -which is the best match Ive ever found, thought not exact- This might be a tube concealer, but it has medium to full coverage. It does smooth out lines but after hours will settle into lines a bit, nothing mayor - patting the area fixes it up-. Lasts all day, doesnt break me out, conceals great... My only gripe is that it doesnt last as long on my face as it does on the undereye area. Could be too moisturizing. I havent found anything better, so until I do, this IS a staple <3

I wanted to like this product. I tried to make it work several times. IMO:
It was too cakey, thick & too powder like for my taste & made my eyes look worse. Back to Sephora it goes.

I cannot rave enough about this concealer. It is my HG undereye concealer, and i have tried a lot of concealers to cover up my horrible undereye circles.
It is thick enough to cover completely but not so thick that i have a cakey undereye. It doesn't even need a powder to set, never creases or go into fine lines (although i'm 23 with minimal to none fine lines) and stays on all day long.
I don't really use it for anything other than my undereye circles, b/c i find it a little to yellow and thick to cover up an occasional redness or pimple.
I'm NC/NW20, Biotherm Light! 415, Maybelline Pure 20 Cameo and i use 02 Light which is the lightest shade.

This is probably not a good all-use concealer for the general user, because it is thick. I have a scar on my face from surgery, and it works well for me because of the full coverage.

I'm still on the fence about this one. My mom gave this to me because the shade (Light 02) ended up being too light for her and she didn't feel like going to return it. The first time I used it, I thought it was a miracle - it completely covered my dark circles! However, now that I have been using it more, I'm afraid it makes me look tired. I'm not sure why that is. The coverage is excellent and the shade match is pretty close (if they had one shade lighter that would be better), I just don't want to go around looking tired all the time!
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination Hair: Other Eyes: Blue
I bought this because I am allergic to a lot of products. I bought the lightest shade, but it was not light enough for my skin tone and when placed under my eyes and around my nose it was a lot thicker than I thought and made me look really tired. It covers red very well, however since it's not light enough, it's not really good for me. I wish there were a lighter shade, and maybe it were a bit thinner, but alas, there is not and it is not. A good product, just not for me.

great concealer but i wont be buying this again.
