First off: the unsatisfactory color selection. I was bikini-clad on a California beach a while back, and some random guy walked by and exclaimed "Damn, that girl is white!" If a Clinique rep had been next to him, she would have nodded in agreement. The lightest shade in this concealer (02 - Light) is too dark. In basements and bars it looks great, but in bright light or outside, it's obvious that it doesn't blend well--you can see little beigy spots on my face where the concealer is. Shade 03, "Moderately Fair", looks even darker. What I need is a shade 01, which is mysteriously absent in this concealer (I have never been able to find it anywhere). Why would they start with 02? Please, Clinique, some love for us natural-born goths?
Second: the performance of the concealer itself. It works pretty well. When I dot it on and pat it in over moisturizer, it seems to go on flawlessly. I like the moderate-to-full yet smooth consistency. It does not fully disguise splotchy redness, but it makes it look better. The main problem is that it doesn't work so well on areas larger than a spot. If I try to cover my nose with a light layer and set it with powder, it seems to grab onto the powder somehow and bunch into lots of tiny speckles, through which you can see the redness I was trying to conceal. Without powder, it rubs off and settles into lines. So, I just skip my nose and use foundation there. Bottom line: it's better as a spot concealer.
Also, I love the tube and applicator. Very convenient and easy to dot in and blend (by patting) with my little finger. No need for a separate brush.
Overall, I like it and it is one of the best formulas I have used. So sad that the shade is wrong for me. I will keep using it until it runs out because I prefer beigey spots to splotchy redness, but I will probably not repurchase when I run out, unless Clinique decides to make this in 01 - Fair.

Love. One of the only products I come back to again and again. I use this for under my eyes and even though I don't need to really smooth lines I find that it does an excellent job at hiding dark circles. It also is not noticeable at all (I have the lightest shade). It stays put all day and the best part is that because of the line smoothing feature it seems to not crease or make under my eyes look crepe-y. Would recommend for any age and any skin type.

I like it , it covers most of my pores and spots and won't make my face dry or break out. It's a great concealer for people who have better skin condition or when you want a full coverage, this is your choice. But i have acnes all the time so i really like to find something natural .

I've tried a lot of concealers...I have allergies which causes deep blue circles under my eyes. Most of the concealers I've tried have been cakey or too yellow - even the pricey ones. Decided one more try at the Clinique counter and the MA pointed this product out for me. I use the applicator (same as a gloss) to dab a bit under my eyes and then I smooth with a concealer brush. Stays put all day and is a great match. I bought mine in fair (I'm an NC 15). Can't live without it now!

This concealer matches my complexion well (I have it in Light), and gives a good level of coverage. The doe foot applicator is decent, and you get quite a bit for the cost. Not my favorite concealer, but a safe bet if you want something versatile and easy.

I like this concealer. my under eye circles really are not that dark so this conceals them pretty well. It gives you a nice coverage, im sure there are better concealer out there but i have been using this for more than a year and i like it , i don't ses why to change. im running low on this i might check out MAC to see if i like theirs.

I love this concealer for undereye circles! It doesn't crease once I set with powder. The color isn't too yellow for my cool-toned skin either.

I've used this concealer for years now and it doesn't disappoint. I use the Mod. Fair and it covers my dark circles flawlessly and the redness around my nose. It does a great job of covering pimples and the red marks leftover from previous zits. It doesn't settle into fine lines and stays fresh looking all day. I'll continue to use this forever!

A generally okay concealer good for on the go.
