By far, one of my favorite under-eye concealers of all time. I will always make sure to at least have one of these on hand. Right now I have Light and Medium. I use Medium most days, but light is good for days when I need a bit more of a brightening effect (I'm around an NW15-20, depending on season).
I don't have super, duper dark circles, and I don't see this helping those at all. It's not a thick or full coverage concealer by any means. However, it works great for me, and I like the fact that it doesn't sink into fine lines.
It's moisturizing, but not greasy (IMO, anyway. I know some people who think it is, but maybe my undereye area is dry enough that it doesn't but me). I love the packaging because it makes it super easy to use. I just swipe it on my undereye area, then use either the Elf Blending Concealer brush (FANTASTIC brush, btw) or the It Comsetics for Ulta Live BeautyFully Concealer Blending brush. Whichever brush I use, I just lightly dab the concealer until it's blended in.
I do always set this concealer. I set all concealers. I could see this not being very good one to use on it's own unless you're SUPER dry, because it is so moisturizing. I'd imagine you'd have issues with it either migrating or just flat wiping off.
I use this also sometimes in conjunction with Benefit Erase Paste. I put that on and blend, and then this over top and blend. The combo of those two (and setting with powder, of course) give me flawless under eyes. Most days I'm already rushing by the time I get to my makeup, so perfection isn't the goal- concealment is enough those days. But, the two together is a great option for people who definitely want to correct and conceal.
All in all, this concealer won't be for everyone. But when it works, it works! It's simple to use, and gives me the results I'm looking for, without being cakey, settling in fine lines, or drying my undereye area out.
If you're looking for the same type of concealer/results, give it a try. If you've got super dark undereye issues, not a good pick. I'd highly reccomend It Cosmetics Bye-Bye Undereye for severe issues. But this stuff works wonderfully for me day to day. =)

I got this product because I have dark circles under my eyes and it did not cover at all. I have combo skin and tends to get very dry in the winter and this is still so oily it makes my make up slide even if I set it. I won't purchase this again. But the packaging is cute and I love their other products.

I bought this to try and cover my moderate under eye circles. It works ok. I have since found better under eye concealers for full coverage. This is pretty moisturizing and good for a quick no makeup look. I do really love the packaging. It's pretty and functional.

Nice idea for dry skin but doesn't really work that great! I am a NC30 and use this in medium for underneath my eyes. You don't need much but if you want a little more coverage you will use more of it and then you get the greasy don't set thing and the concealer just slides around your face.

I was excited to try this.
I really liked how it was designed to apply to the skin.
Unfortunately I found this to be very greasy and even after setting with powder does not quite ever set.
It did not provide very much coverage for my undereye area, wore away fairly quick, and did crease.
Overall this products was a fail. I kept it far longer then I should have but I really wanted to get it to work for me, in the end it just did not.
I would have loved using a concealer in this format even an all over foundation if only it had better staying power and was formulated for oily skin of course.

I have just starting using a sample of this product, mainly under my eyes and I was surprised to find that I actually like a BeneFit Cosmetics complexion product. Generally speaking, I find their products way to heavy and cakey and orange, but this product is a nice departure from that trend. I really like the moisture that this imparts and so far, it looks pretty natural on my face. I will consider purchasing the full-sized product in the future.

I have very dark circles under my eyes and this concealer did absolutely nothing to cover them, however I do layer this on top of my glamoflauge concealer and it really makes my eyes bright. It works great as a highlighter but not so much as a concealer.

I LOVE this! I bought it while looking for something that would brighten my under eye area, but also last through the 100 degree days of summer. This is amazing! It goes on smooth, lasts all day, and gives great coverage. I was concerned it would be too moisturizing or slick for my oily skin, but it's definitely not. Now a regular staple in my makeup collection.

I got a trial size of this in a benefit kit which I've recently bought and so far I've been loving this!
I does everything you'd want a concealer to do under your eyes (don't understand why some people use this on pimples) - it moisturizes, it conceals, doesn't look cakey, stays in plays, easy to apply. I don't know what else to say except that my dry under eye area loves this stuff!

I have used this product for around 10 months, but to be honest its not amazing for what its advertised for: under eye concealing. The coverage really isn't there, and when I use it, I tend to use it as a base for another more covering concealer. In comparison to other concealers I use (Nars, MAC, Maybelline) Fakeup doesn't do its job well. The main claim is that its hydrating, and yes it is to a degree, but its also greasy. Because of this I think it would probably only be great for those with dry skin. I have dry skin and it still feels greasy on me to a certain extent. In addition the lasting power of this concealer is not particularly great.
I also think Benefit, for the price, the packaging just doesn't compete with other brands that are at a similar price point. The packaging for this concealer does feel quite cheap, but it is functional in the application. Overall, not a great concealer and won't repurchase.
