I've finally discovered the secret of using this concealer! Despite being only 21, I've got some thin lines underneath my eyes. Normally I don't notice them, but whenever I put concealer under my eyes it just cakes and sets into the lines and makes them look so like real wrinkles. I wish that going without under eye concealer was an option, but I've got DARK circles underneath mine.
The last time I went shopping at MAC I complained to the SA about my dark circles. She looked at me and went "They are not that bad, you know". When I told here that I was wearing makeup (this concealer in NC15) she just went "Oh..." and suggested that I would try it in NW20 instead. I'm so glad I did! Even thou I'm NC15 and golden/yellow, this works like magic. I've still got some darkness, but it's a lot better and I don't get the "Yeah, I'm trying to hide my circles by making them look white"-look. The pink in the concealer definitely did that what the yellow in the NC couldn't and the slightly darker sort of disguised them.
Anyhow, my new discovery is that you should use A LOT of moisturizer and the put the concealer on directly afterwards. I've always been afraid of using to much moisturizer in the fear of having my concealer sliding into the fine lines, but when I use more (a lot more) the concealer sort of sinks in together with the moisturizer and the creasing is minimal. If I get any, I just swipe my finger underneath my eye and the creasing is gone for the day. I've even found that the Dermalogica Intensive Moisture Balance is amazing combined with this concealer! Since my face didn't like it, if figured that I might try it as an eye cream. Love it!

- Great coverage
- Stays put all day, even if you get caught in the rain because it's water resistant! So you can wear it to pool parties etc... :)
- Most of the time it has a nice creamy texture that is easy to pat in and blend.
- Sometimes, for some strange reason, the texture dries up??
- If the wrong amount is used it can look cakey, and also has a tendency to creep into really fine lines and make them wayyy more noticeable than they usually are.
Nevertheless, it's a good product on the whole and quite reasonably priced.

I like MAC products but was not impressed with this one. Even though the texture is silky and blends very well, I find it to greasy. I have dry-normal skin type and after a couple of hours the stuff just slides off my face, taking a bit of khol liner along its path. After an important meeting, I went to the ladies room and saw black srteaks mixed with concealor running under my eyes....I cried there and then. Needless to say, I will never wear this one again !

I do really like this product. It covers my dark under circles and any redness on my face very very well. Plus, it does not shift all day. I find myself using it as a foundation when I am going out dancing, because it helps my L'oreal true match foundation stays longer. I really like this concealer but keep it away from my fine lines under my eyes. What I do not like about it is how dry it is. You have to moisturize your face especially around the eyes before applying it.

Not too keen on using this for under the eyes. I find it settles really badly in my fine lines, and it wipes right off if I try to blend it. Not too impressed on the staying power it has for my blemishes either. I find it covers small red spots really well with little effort, but I sometimes suffer from cystic acne around that time of the month, and I find all this product does is become cakey and actually causes the blemish to become flakey. So gross. I will not be repurchasing.

This has wonderful coverage as a concealer for dark circles under my eyes. My dark circles are hereditary, so I've been searching for the perfect concealer for many, many years. This is very close to perfect. It is pretty thick, definately buildable, and has a matte finish. My only unhappiness lies with the fact that after a couple of hours, it settles into creases. Not terribly, but some. Perhaps at my age, thats unavoidable. It lasts forever (comes in a pot, the same kind MAC eyeshadow singles come in), so the price is fair. Overall, I'm pretty happy with this.

So! i bought this in NC35, im a NC43-44 mind you lol, for the sole purpose of concealing my DARK as heck under-eye circles... :( ... i use this in conjunction with the Studio Tech foundation, and at first, i thought it looked great? lol then.. like 10 minutes later i realized how OLD and tired it made me look?? this settles horrifically into fine lines, it almost looks like it makes new ones, what??? LOL! and i found it too drying for my eye area. it is GREAT for anywhere and everywhere else on your face lol so what i do now is i layer and build up my foundation underneath my eyes, and then apply this ( with ring finger, it is a cream consistency that works its best when warmed up so swirl your clean finger in there! lol brush made it just sit there and appear drier and cakier than it is) on my top lids, and under eye but wayyyy underneath, far from my lash line and fine lines, and it looks great! jijiji and great over dark spots and pimples!! try this!!! its good you just might have to play with it, and keep it away from your fine lines. :D

A new staple for me. I have oily, acne prone skin, and this concealer doesn't clog my pores and does a great job of staying put and covering what needs to be covered. I don't recommend it for under the eyes (maybe just slightly above the cheekbone, but not much higher than that). It's a bit thick and a little drying for that. But elsewhere, it's a perfect fit for my needs. Works great with concealer brushes and with fingers when I'm in a hurry. Love that it's in a convenient pot (and an extra bonus--it's eligible for Back2Mac!). Will definitely repurchase.

This is an everyday must for me! This is basically my foundation. It covers amazingly! Just don't over do it because it can look cakey if you do. But you can always spray fix + or water to avoid it!
