A great concealer, I am onto my second one already. I am asian with light-medium skin. The 03 Moderately Fair is an almost perfect match. It glides on smoothly and is non drying, covering small scars and broken capillaries well. As an undereye concealer, which is its intended function, it is not too bad, but I have seen better. It lasts about half a day and will require a touch up about mid afternoon.

I bought this concealer over Christmas when the airline lost our luggage and I had to get something quick. I have it in Light 02, which is a pretty close match to my skin, though not perfect. I often find that I'm too light for Clinique to find a perfect match.
As far as the product goes: I think it's easy to blend and a good overall consistency. I don't love it over blemishes, because I think it highlights them more than anything (I think that's always the case with a drying-out blemish), but it works well under my eyes and on any new red spots. I usually touch the applicator to my hand and apply with a brush or my finger from there, as not to infect the product in the container by using the doe-foot applicator provided.
I'm not sure I would purchase again, but only because I enjoy trying different concealers. I still said I would for review purposes, because I think it's a product worthy of trying.

Good concealer...I have one under eye wrinkle that always creases, no matter what product used. This concealer covered my dark circles, but sadly creased slightly even when set with powder....the search continues!

I have tried a lot of different concealors in the past, and they were all disappointing. After a while, I tried Clinique because I know that they are good for you and are one of the top brands. I really love this concealer! It covers my blemishes really well so that I end up with that flawless skin. And what's even better is that this product isn't so pricey! Drug store brands tend to be around $6 and never work, but this can be bought for $14 and works wonders! I would definitely buy this again.

My main problem with this concealer is the lack of shades. There is only one shade that is suitable for black women! It's crazy because black skin has such a variety tones, and just one shade isn't going to cut it.
I do like the way the product blends, and it doesn't settle into my fine lines (I'm 24, but there are visible fine lines under my eyes in my kindergarten pictures). But, it is just too dark for me, and the next lighter is ridiculously light.

Wonderful product. I used to work for Clinique and used this on almost everyone in the undereye area. It is great if you have dark shadows, lines, and a great base that is not marketed as a base. It has optical diffusers that really put a soft mask over your imperfections. I love it, and I swear my complexion evens out so much, when I use this all over. It's great to use as a highlighter too mixed with some gold for shadowing. The lasting power is great and it doesn't settle or feel slimy on your skin.It's a little pricey, but I think that a great concealer and foundation deserve to be pricey, because that's the foudation for great makeup! The foundation that you build is that platform for the rest of your products.

I was in Sephora a few days ago and the SA was helping me with finding a good concealer. She recommended this, and put it on under my eyes. Perfect match for my skin tone and covered my (horrible, very dark, hereditary, but not puffy) dark circles fairly well. However, when she put a little on my cheek to make sure it would blend in with my face, it immediately started oxidizing. She was the manager and she said she had NEVER seen something oxidize that darkly on someone's skin. It went about three shades darker than what it was supposed to be! Also, within a minute, my skin began to get red and develop little bumps under it. Thankfully, she took it off right away. I would NEVER recommend this to someone with sensitive skin like mine. Also, test it in the store to make sure it won't oxidize horribly on your skin.
Side note: I gave it a low packaging rating because I think concealers with wands are quite unhygienic.

Im sorry but i absoulutly hate this product with a passion. First of all the lightest shade is waaaaaaay to dark and yellow toned. You can totally see it through my powder and it gives pretty much no coverage. It doesnt cover dark circles well either. i think im gonna go burn mine.

This sucks LOL. No matter how much I moisturized my eye area, no matter what I did, it managed to cake up and flake and look terrible. It didn't cover anything I wanted it to and dried my eyes area. Would not repurchase. Disappointed in you Clinique!

This concealer is exactly like the covergirl's. They're both pink based, which doesn't work for my yellow NC25 Asian skin. Since this didn't work out for dark spots I tried using it for undereyes.
It's blendability is okay, but it doesn't smooth out lines! I have very tiny wrinkle underneath my eyes and when I put this on it gets super noticable! Forget finishing it with powder in hopes of matching it to your skin. The coverage is crap, it turns my undereye circles dark pinkish. I get better coverage from my foundation.
If you have pink undertones this might work, but seriously the covergirl one's EXACTLY like this and much cheaper. Just be careful if you have undereye wrinkles because it does not smooth it out.
