I've been using this for a while for dark circles. I am not so much a fan of the sponge applicator. I pump the product up and dip a small concealer brush into it and dab on my under eyes. I find this product good at covering dark circles but I find it can be a bit cakey and settles into patches if not blended well. It wasn't until a tried another concealer I realized that the consistency of this is very thick (if you swipe it on your hand next to other concealers). However, I guess that's why it is good at covering dark circles. I will continue to alternate using this but have recently found one just as good.

This is the concealer I've repurchased the most!! (4-5x) Inexpensive and easy to find (any drugstore ), it is medium coverage and creamy, not runny at all which is awesome. The medium shade matches my skin so I use it to conceal face blemishes & as a color corrector under my eyes. I use the light shade on top of the medium shade for highlighting under my eyes. This combo works well. It does burn slightly upon application but the burning doesn't last long. When setting with a powder (I use Ben Nye Banana), it lasts a solid 6-7 hours before wearing away. I know some people have an issue with the sponge-tip applicator but it has never caused breakouts etc and I like the applicator because of the convenience. If you are looking for a concealer, I highly recommend this!

I really loved this concealer. I don't think it covered my dark circles, but it definitely made my under eye look better especially because it has yellow undertones. The only thing I hated about this product is the packaging. I hate that it's a twist up and the worst part is the sponge tip. I feel like it's such a waste of a great product because it just soaks it up and I can't even use it so technically I am only using half of what I am paying for.

I love this! The concealer stays on all day and there's a great variety of colors to choose from! I'm not sure about the anti-aging part since I'm just 20, I haven't noticed any anti-aging taking effect on my skin obviously.

MUA raved about this product so I gave it a try.

It's not the worst concealer out there. I don't think it made my skin look worse. However it was really nothing special. My undereye circles were still visible, & it's not like this formula will plump up your skin.

The biggest issue I have with this line is the packaging & shade selection. The sponge tip is a germ/bacteria magnet so I ripped that off asap. I had a lot of trouble getting any product out. As for the shades issue......the lightest color is about NW15. I'm NC10 so obviously that was too dark. I opted for the neutralizer shade although clearly it's meant to be a pale yellow.

This wasn't HG worthy, so I'll keep looking.

Everyone loves this but me. I can't give a high rating. I just can't do it! Also the packaging, I think it's bad. I think the sponge can spread bacteria, and besides that it easily comes off, which could be good or bad I guess considering. I do love how it concealed, but it broke me out! I kept getting little bumps on the top of my cheekbones where some would smooth out. I don't know what my skin didn't like about it, but I can't re-buy it. It's truly a bit fat Bummer...I think it's worth trying for everyone else, it seems to work so well on everyone in the youtube community, but just didn't for me. I shudder to think of girls using this to cover acne though, this stuff is making it worse! If it broke me out, I know it's doing it to other girls too. I hate that! I feel the same way about Bare Minerals, and anything with a lot of Bismuth Oxychloride! Ugh! Stay away! I don't know but this probably has something toxic in it too.

In Spain we only have two shades for this concealer: Light and Nude, and unfortunately none of them matches me perfectly. Light is too yellow and Nude is too dark. However coverage is so good that I apply "light" and then set it with a bit of powder foundation and it disguises the difference (and it helps it not moving)

I absolutely love it though, definitely will repurchase.

I purchased this in the pinkish illuminator. I always have to use a concealer.. it can be NARS, MUFE, Dior, and cover any darkness under my eyes. As time marches on the darkness gets deeper grr.

this is a little gem. I did not want more concealing, but an overall illusion of lightness and brightness under my eyes and this product delivers with the best of them.
I am not a fan of the sponge but its easy to use and give a lovely brushed finish if used by patting lightly. This does not crease or accentuate any lines around my eyes.

overall I do like this product and have repurchased 3 times.

very well worth the money.

I have fairly dark circles under my eyes and had been using the Makeup Forever full coverage concealer for a few years prior. While I love the concealer I was using before, I wanted to find a more affordable concealer that worked at least as well (i.e. something that didn't cost $40 a bottle).

I read some great reviews about this product so went to Target to give it a try. While it's not as thick as my previous concealer, I think it works almost as well for a fraction of the price. I love the applicator (even though sometimes it takes a while for the product to get to the tip) and it's great for quick coverage. If I'm getting ready to go out to dinner or an event, I will usually add another product on top of this to ensure absolutely full coverage, but this is great as part of my everyday makeup routine. 3 stars for packaging because the plastic tip cover falls off very easily.

I love this product! Its easy to apply & blend & lasts longer than I expected. Better than others I've tried! If you get the right color its amazing for contouring as well. I put it only on my undereye shadow down into a triangle & I'm circle free!

Previously tried & didn't love:
Garnier undereye roller-doesnt have an option of shade & goes on too sheer. Coldness of the roller feels good so I still use it b4 using other. Not good for the price!
Glamoflage by hard candy-felt dry & creased bad but pencil is good for blemishes
Almay-meh...
Cover girl-ok..goes on thick
LA girl-not good for circles but great for contour
Physicians formula- cakey & dry
