I am 40 and although I am still wrinkle free, I am very dry under the eyes and can get crinkly and crepy looking. So, I go to great lengths to moisturize as well as possible and I am always looking for a better concealor. I bought this concealer a few days ago and it is a great one, because it covers the dark circles like nobody's business, it lasts all day, and it does NOT make my under-eye area look dry. Now I must say that I use a good moisturizing eye cream and then I dab a teensy bit of Burts Bees Attar of Rose eye oil on top of the concealer...yes, on TOP. And guess what? It doesn't crease into the fine lines when I smile at all. I always have to check for this with other concealers in mirrors all day and it has not been a problem with this concealer. The SA selected level 3 cool, but I tried on the level 3 warm as well. Both actually looked fine on me. I think I am neutral. Anyway, try this and if you have a problem with dryness, dab a tiny bit of moisturizing eye cream or oil over it. This blows my Christian Dior moisturizing concealer out of the water. Update: I took a lippie off because I found something better and because this was too dry to use in the winter. Still a good one, though. Just not HG.

Updated review: I don't like this under my eyes. It tends to crease and emphasize fine lines on my older eyes. It also clumps in the corners after several hours. However, I do find this works well to cover spots so I will keep my rating as is. also it's a must to buy this in a brick and mortar store cause the colors run light IMO. Warm 1 was definitely too light for me(warm vellum usually in Px) so went back for Warm 2 which is better but still a little light. Shrug. Original Review:Ok the good with this concealer is the SPF 25, all physical. Also coverage is good. I bought in the Warm 1 and it definitely covers and brightens but appears rather whitish on my skin so I have to be very judicial in applying this--too much and I look like a raccoon. I also have to be careful what I use under this. Some eye creams, especially those with SPF which I need to use all over my eye, cause this concealer to clump, wear patchy and look cakey. So I think it works best just on the darkest part of my eye circles and not under the entire eye. For that reason alone I'm keeping although I vacillate about returning cause it's not a homerun for me, but rather more a highlighter than total concealer for me.

This stuff is *incredible*. The coverage is amazing, hiding my circles, spots and everything in between. It goes on soo smoothly as well; it's like a cream in a compact (I think someone already mentioned this). It also wears on and on, lasting me through most of the day in the summer weather. I wear Warm 1, and it's a dead-on match (I don't think I'll ever get darker *sigh*). And it doesn't hurt that there is a mirror in the sleek packaging. Definite repurchase.

I was really hoping that this concealer would be the answer to my prayers, but unfortunately, it was not. While it did give good coverage, it looked cakey from the moment I put it on, and I blended well too! During the day my dark circles started to through, and it also emphasized fine lines under my eyes (and I'm only 20!). I got this in Level 2 Warm, which sounded right and looked right for me, both on the website and in person. But when I put this on it had a strange white-ish cast to it! It also seemed too dry to work as an undereye concealer! I really wanted to like this, but unfortunately, it didn't work out. It'll be going back to gloss.com.

Oh this is the concealer I've been searching for. I have some acne scars and the occasional pimple that pops up and I've tried several other concealers with no luck. The SA tried it on me (I'm a Level 2 Warm) and when she was done she told me to look in the mirror. I braced myself and... wow! Blemishes? What blemishes?! It did a great job of concealing everything! The price isn't too bad ($22) considering the great job it does and I do like the sleek mirrored compact it comes in but I know that it'll show smudges and my neurotic self won't like that. Anyway, this is a product I know I will buy again and again!
*EDIT: Apparently the SA wasn't paying attention because I'm a Level 2 Cool, not Warm. I exchanged it today for the right shade and now it's definitely love!

After reading the previous reviews I decided to give it a try. My main problem is very transparent skin so I can see all the veins underneat. I went to the department store and asked to the Prescriptives girl to apply the product on my eye area. She used Cool 2 on one side and warm 2 on the other to find the better match. It feels very heavy, the coverage was about 30% and after a close-up in the mirror I could see some settling on fine lines. After about one hour I looked again and could see lines that I didn't even know I had.
I did not purchase it.
I recomend you to try it first, it is too much money to waste.

Like everyone else after ALL the raves about this concealer I had to try it and I am so glad I did. For reference, I am a MAC NW20 and I chose Level 1 cool. When my package arrived I immediately opened it and dabbed just a little on my finger and used it under one of my eyes, looked in the mirror and just about fell out! My dark circle was completely gone! I could not believe how smoothly it went on. I used it today for the first time under both eyes and on a few red places on my face and truly I could have gone without anything else on! It works that well. Run, go get yours now!

After reading these great reviews I had to try it for myself. I ran out of my Benefit boi-ing, but was never fully satisfied with it. So I went to the Prescriptives counter in Macy's, and they actually offer more shade selections than Benefit (who only has 3!). Anyways, I tried it on there but with the lighting I couldn't tell how well it really worked (couldn't they get better lights in m/u departments?). Well, I got home and looked in the mirror and my dark circles are hardly visible! It took seriously a very small amount (tap w/ finger, rub between finger and thumb, then pat on skin and blend) and looks soooo good!! If my opinion changes after more use of it, I'll update my review. But so far so good!
Update: After a couple of months with this stuff, it seems to not be doing the trick anymore. It looks cakey no matter how much or little I use, and no matter how much I try to blend it. On goes my search for the perfect concealer...

I have been searching for a good concealer. I've tried dozens, and in the past have found many that were adequate, but still there were problems. My eye area has lines and crepiness, and most concealers turn matte and they accent the lines. If I use an eye cream under the concealers, they move and crease even more. I was looking for a stay-put concealer that would cover well, not crease, and not turn matte. I went to Prescriptives because I love so many things about that line, and I tried the Flawless concealer. It comes in the cutest little silver compact with mirror. The concealer is a cream in a pan. The smallest amount tapped under the eye covered everything, gave my skin a pretty luminosity, sort of a little glow, it looked fresh all day, and did not turn matte. It did not sink into my lines, and it did not crack or flake. Again I have to applaud Prescriptives for offering these great products. I bought the concealer and I would buy it again. The shades are realistic and not too extreme, no super yellow or super pink here. Just natural skin shades and plenty of them to choose from. That's one of the best features of Prescriptives.

Overall a great concealer. Covers my dark circles well. Opaque and goes on very easy. Doesn't seem to cake. I bought this in Warm 3. I use a concealer brush and then smooth out with my fingers. I can still see a tiny bit of my circles coming through which leads me to think that there may not be a concealer in existance that can fully cover my circles. If anyone knows of one please let me know!

This is not good stuff. It's dry and accentuates the fine lines I didn't think I had. (I'm 15, for God's sake, nothing should accentuate lines that practically don't exist.) Maybe I got a bad batch?

I'd like to say that I have drug-addict worthy dark circles (words from a friend too!!). So I've been trying to conceal them ever since I was teen and I've used PLENTY of brands (Maybelline, Cover girl, Nars, Smashbox, MAC, etc, etc.) and I've always been at least a little disappointed. Most concealers looked too cakey, hard to find the right coverage, and always felt more harmful to my skin than anything else. After reading the reviews, I was very hesitant to buy it because Ive been disappointed many times!! I was using MAC Select Cover-Up which wasn't too bad. However, one day I just buckled down and tried it -- I could return it if it didn't work out right? BUt lo and behold.. it's AMAZING!! The concealer is SO pigmented yet light that all I need to do is pat my fingertip lightly on the concealer pad and lightly smudge it underneath my eyes. About two times per undereye and that does the trick. The only concern with packaging is if the product melted, I would imagine it'd be quite a mess.. but that will never stop me from buying this product!
I actually haven't bought it again and think it may be too thick/drying for under eyes. I still think its really good but I'm sure there are better.
Knocked it down a lippie because I like using mineral foundation or bb cream much more. Wouldn't buy again but I would recommend it. Knocking it down to 3.

HOLY @#$& is this concealer AMAZING. It's insanely pigmented but applies smoothly, blends like a dream, hides *anything* you want it to hide, but looks natural and has great staying power. I don't use foundation, so I use concealer to hide undereye circles, blemishes, and uneven pigmentation. I'm an NC20 and purchased this concealer online in Level 2 Warm, sight unseen. It's a good enough match, but even with my summer skin, it might be a tad too dark (but this I'm sure it only perceptible to me). When I repurchase (and I know I will), I'll probably try the Level 1 Warm. The packaging is another bonus -- a small sleek mirrored compact. With SPF 25, you'd have to find me a concealer that does my laundry and cooks dinner to beat this one. Hands down this beats MAC and Lorac (my two most recent concealer purchases).

I LOVE this concealer, definitely would rate it as one of my favs. Goes on very smoothly, blends well, and does not cake! Right now I just dab a little on my finger and gentle pat over undereye circles and blemishes. It provides great coverage without looking really heavy. And BEST of all, it has spf 25. Would def repurchase. But will look into buying a concealer brush because i hate putting my finger on it all the time. A little pricey ($22) but looks like it will last a looong time.

I have been using Estee Lauder's Uncircle for years but the shade was a little light so I thought, after reading such good reviews, I would give this one a try. Being anglo-asian I have difficulty finding a good colour match but level 3 warm matches my skintone perfectly (fair-medium with yellow/olive undertones). I have quite bad genetic undereye circles and it covers them perfectly. Only one layer and they are 90% gone, add another layer (and this layers really well) and you cannot tell I have circles at all. I do set it with dermablend setting powder immediately after and I find that you need to use this with a good emollient eye cream to get the best results (I use Dr Hauschka eye revitalising cream which is 10/10). The staying power is excellent and lasts all day. Costwise it isn't bad seeing as you get so much in the compact - I paid around £18.00. I used to take so much time covering up my circles in the morning now it takes a few seconds.. perfect!

This is my favorite concealer. At first, I did not think that this product would work for me because none of the shades looked light enough for my skin (for those of you familiar with L'Oreal True Match Super Blendable Makeup, I wear W1). However, upon the first application I found that this concealer in Level One Warm blended into my skin quite well, offering strong, long-lasting cream-to-powder coverage that looks remarkably natural. I use it to cover post-inflammatory redness and broken capillaries, and do not need a concealer for under my eye. However, I sometimes use a concealer for brightening, and when this is the case, I use Paula's Select No-Slip Concealer in Light, which is the best shade match for my skin I have ever seen. Unfortunately, it provides very sheer coverage that can serve no purpose except to liven my face up a bit, which is why I shell out the money for the Prescriptives concealer for everyday use. I find success in applying this Prescriptives concealer with my fingertips, but most people will probably want a brush. A bonus with this concealer is that it contains SPF 25 titanium dioxide sunscreen, which is great for offering added protection to already sensitive and/or damaged areas that need concealing. Prescriptives has very cute packaging, but unfortunately their cases show every fingerprint and smear imaginable.

This is the best concealer that I have ever used! It is so creamy and covers everything! I can even use it as a foundation because it is so light! It doesn't even look heavy on but covers beautifuly! I will buy it again and again. I have tried tons of products and this is the best ever!!!!!!!
Age: 18 & Under Skin: Acne-prone Hair: Brown Eyes: Hazel
I really like this concealer. After numerous nightmare experiences with various d/s brands, my grandma finally brought me to a Prescriptives counter and I got this product in cool 2. The product is creamy but stays put all day, even without powder. The spf 25 is an ingenius addition to this great product - perfect for summer wear! The one con I have had with this product is that since I use my fingers to apply this, I can't target small areas such as zits. But I realize I could easily fix this problem with a small brush.
Overall a great prduct and worth the money!

I love this concealer. It is a creamy powder. I apply it with a brush under my eyes and on my lids and it stays put all day and looks perfect at the end of the day. I have this concealer in Level 1 Cool and it is a perfect natural-looking match for my PPP skin. I use it with the Traceless Foundation.

Because I have very bad dark circle, a good concealer is always on top of my searching list. This is by far the best concealer I have ever tried. It covers super well, yet somehow doesn't look cakey nor greasy. It also evens out my eye lids discoloration very well and serves as a eyeshadow base. I think it also has SPF 25--how good is that! Give it a try and you will love it!
