Concealer is too thin and watery, two layers didn't give much coverage. Creased pretty quickly for me after setting with powder.

Color wise, the light shade is very chalky and might look good on very cool toned skin but not on warm toned skin.

Highlighter shows up mostly as sparkles on my skin, which isn't what I was going for, but if you wanted lots of shimmer you might like the highlighter.

This 2 in 1 conceal and highlight is actually really good! The concealer gives good light coverage for that brightening look underneath your eyes. The consistency isn't cakey and very blendable! However the highlighter is not what I was expecting, has a glitter shimmer to it which I'm not a fan of and doesn't really notice any difference once I apply it. But overall, not a bad product! Would buy again :)

I use this concealer everyday on my undereyes. It's very light, and offers just the right amount of coverage for your average undereye discoloration/slight dark circles. I also have used it to clean up my eyebrows, and as an eyeshadow primer, and it all works so well. For $3, this is definitely worth trying.

Best under eye concealer yet. I haven't owned the Mac pro long wear so can't compare to that but this definitely covered my really bad under eye bags and hasn't wrinkled that much (very little and not noticeable unless you look close and stare). The highlight makes me look less tired and seems to work well as a base for eye make up when applied to lid and above eye bit where it touches when your eyes are open.
Great price too, even though it's small it woudn't cost much to re-purchase.
Great having a 2 in one, all over eye make up.

I don't understand the hate for this product. I have just replaced my beloved touche eclat with this beauty! $3 versus $42?!?! Nothing can touch it. I actually tried it all over my face today to see how it wears. I think it might be a little too moisturizing for my oily skin, but in a pinch it works better than any other foundation I've tried. Most a re very cakey...even the TM's and BB's I've tried. I don't need to cover much, but this is just enough.

I don't feel as though this product does much concealing, but I like the subtle shimmer the highlighter part does. It doesn't stay in place under the eye but that is for the best as it would strange with shimmer on under the eyes.

I bought this after being attracted to a double ended package that has two different products for three dollars which seemed promising. For three dollars i think you get what you pay for. Which is alright. The concealer is a very lightweight watery consistency offering very mild coverage. The fair color was pretty good for my pale skin but blends away to nearly nothing. The highlighter looked matte white but upon application has a ton of shimmery silver glitter... Which is not a bad thing but hardly something youd want right under your eye. I put it on my cheekbones the odd time. Its not bad but is a very stark highlight. So for three dollars this is alright but i need far more coverage for my dark circles.

I don't use the concealer for my undereyes , I actually use it to clean up my eyebrows after filling them in ( in the shade medium ) . Does a great job ! It is liquidy which is good to work with . & the doe applicator makes it easy to apply. I then use elf's concealer brush to blend it out .
Definetly steps up my eyebrow game !

I rarely ever use the highlighter side . If I do use it , it'll be for a base for my eyeshadow never to actual highlight .

I've bought countless tubes already & plan on continuing to purchase . Other concealers just don't do my eyebrows justice like this one!

If you have prominent dark circles or need a heavy duty concealer as opposed to a light-coverage one, then steer clear of this product!! In itself, this isn't a bad concealer. It doesn't crease. The texture is a bit on the thinner side but still nice and easy to work with. I got mine in the color light/glow which is a perfect match for my fair skin tone.

The downside is that this concealer is definitely on the sheer side. I have hereditary dark circles that are not helped by lack of sleep, and this really doesn't cover them up all at. It does okay at covering blemishes, and does nothing really to conceal scarring, etc. Yes the price is super cheap (around three dollars, I want to say) but you truly aren't getting that much product (.4 fl oz and that is with half being the highlighter.)

As far as the highlight is concerned, I did NOT realize how disco-ball-esque it was when I looked at it in the store. Got home to take a closer look and realized there is an extreme amount of intense silver, blue, and purple glitter & shimmer all throughout the white liquid-y highlighter. I don't use highlighter on my face. I have what I consider to be noticeable scarring, and anything shiny on my cheeks, well... highlights the scarring. Even if I were to use those types of products, I don't see how this would be usable on any skin tone.

I am quite fair and even just swatching this on my hand, no matter how much I try to blend it, there is still a stark white cast. The size and intensity of the glitter make it look like I swatched a glittery white eyeshadow on my hand as opposed to a highlight. The one thing I will use this for is to prime my eyelids sometimes... I don't notice any increased longevity or punch of pigmentation when this is used underneath eyeshadow (typically why you'd use a primer) but this does provide a pretty finish and makes me look more awake, as well as softening the look of any veins on the eyelids.

I wish I wouldn't have purchased this stuff, but it was only three dollars so I can't complain. I carry it around with me in my purse for on-the-go blemish coverup/touch-ups or in case I ever feel like I need some glitter in my life.

UPDATE 2/9/2016: I ran out of my other concealer and have been using this, and it sucks. It really does. It doesn't even look like I'm using concealer at all.

It's a good concealer for the price. It's pretty liquidy but not runny. I usually moisturize, apply primer, foundation and then concealer, allowing a couple of minutes in between each so they can dry. I dot this under my eye, let it sit there for a minute while I begin my brows, and after I feel like it's firming up I blend it out gently with my ring finger. Goes on very smoothly. The coverage is light, medium if I let the first layer of concealer dry and apply another one on top of it. I'm not a big fan of the accompanying highlighter but it's nice sometimes on the eyelids. I usually set my undereyes with some setting powder and then I'm ready to go all day. There is some very light creasing after a few hours but the product is soft enough to blend back in with just my finger again and firm enough that it doesn't look patchy afterwards and doesn't move again for a long time.

I use this on an every day basis and save my higher end concealers for the weekend or nights out. It gets the job done.

I wear this color in light.
