The only good thing about this product is its cute packaging, its small enough to fit into your tiniest handbag. However does it work wonders ? answer is NO !! It is easy to apply its creamy texture however by the time I have finished doing the rest of my make up my dark circles are visible again. Not advisable for humid countries. If you plan to splurge on a concealer I suggest you try the MAC range.

I like this concealer. It brightens my dark circles well and it lasts the whole day. I only need a little dab on my undereye and I don't find that it creases at all.
The only con for me would be the powder. It settles into my fine lines and looks sooo powdery! I've tried applying it with a brush and or even my fingers,the best is with a sponge. But even then, it still looks somewhat powdery.
The only reason I won't repurchase this is because of the powder. If the concealer came on its own, then I'd buy it again.

The packaging is possibly the best concealer kit I've ever seen - creamy concealer next to the powder set is a great layout. Unfortunately, I have some sort of allergy to the concealer, which lead to almost a week of red, puffy, dry eyes. The color was nice, but i noticed (even before the red puffy eyes) that if I didn't wait at least five minutes between the cream concealer and the setting powder, it wouldn't last more than an hour or two. My eyes lend themselves to yellow/dark under the eye if I'm not at my best, so I was disappointed that this didn't live up to its hype.

I liked this concealer. It's a bit thick but the key-at least for me-was to put a dot of my eye cream under each eye and massage it in. I let that sink in while I brushed my teeth, curled my hair, etc. Then I would put some of the concealer on the back of my hand, add some of my eye cream, mix the two, and apply the concealer under my eyes. That was the way to get it to sit all day. I found the powder worked well all over my face but made the concealer more obvious when used under the eyes so I usually skipped it.

I have been using this concealer and corrector for several years but to tell you the true I'm not completely happy with it, but I have try others and I always come back to Bobbi Brown, the color is perfect,I use the concealer and the corrector on top as they recommend me in BB, the problem is that it's very heavy and oily and doesn't stay for a long time.

bleh...I guess my search for the perfect concealer isn't over yet. I too was convinved by a salesperson. I don't use the powder because it looks too cakey (powder on fine lines???hellooo) and I use an Yves Rocher concealer brush. The texture is very thick, you don't need a lot, and the coverage is very buildable. It remains me of stage makeup. I use it only under my eyes because it doesn't really work on blemishes or scars which sucks. It provides decent dark circle coverage but for the price, i think i can find better. I actually used a maybelline mineral one for years before they discontinued it and it was FAR better... Disappointed, won't repurchase.

I bought this along with the corrector when the sales person convinced me that I had dark circles. The first week, I tried it using my ecotools concealer brush (the sales kept telling me to NOT use my fingers) and the result looked terrible. It looked very heavy and did not blend into my skin at all. I had used it with BB's eye repair cream and patted it in. But it just didn't work.
I went back the next week and complained to the SA. He convinced me that it was because I was using the wrong brush, so I bought the concealer blending brush. I went home and was so excited to try it out. The results were the same. Sure, it wasn't that heavy as before but it was still heavy and unblended. I thought I was using too much so I tried using less and less. Still didn't work.
The concealer kit has been sitting in my makeup drawer for months now and every once in a while, I pick it up and try it out again, praying for the best, but no. Every time's a disappointment. I really really wanted to like the concealer.
-the packaging (I have it in the new packaging where the powder and concealer are side by side)
-the shade (beige looked great on me)
-didn't blend into skin
-a fussy product

(Reviewing this as the Corrector/Concealer-Kit together)
It's great for hardcore raccoon-eye cases... but it's fussy, a bit thick/product-y, it's a bit time consuming, and it's expensive. ***The most important part*** is to make sure that you get the right shades, or it'll really be not worth it. Don't go for a makeup artist's pick if you still think it looks less than great. Look for a store, maybe a Sephora or something, that will have all the shades available for you to try, take off, and try again. Set out some time to really find the perfect combination, compare different options on each eye side by side - it makes a lot of difference.
If your eyes are dry, you'll want to moisturize them because this is one drying mixture. Preferably, do it the night before, and then some during too. Of course, BB will sell some extremely expensive eye creams (hah!), but a regular one will do, really. I use Aveeno's Daily Moisturizing lotion, and it's great on my (super sensitive!) eyes.
With a little effort, the right shade combination, the time to put 4 things (moisturizer-corrector-concealer-setting powder) and a bite out of your wallet, you could get a pretty great effect with this. I'm going all the way to 4 despite its flaws, because right now I haven't found anything with a better end result. That said, I really miss Tarte's discontinued Dark Circle Defense. Much cheaper, lots of it, great texture, super fast to put on - maybe just toss some powder if I wanted it to go all day. It wasn't as perfect of a shade match, a little pale, but it was so great for the everyday...

pricey. packaging SUCKS. i am not the type of person who is clumsy or drops my makeup, etc. but the packaging on this stopped working randomly when i had only been storing it still & upright in my makeup drawer. ummm.. ok? the top flip area lost its ability to close. so now powder gets everywhere if im not careful. this product is too expensive & doesnt do enough miraculous things to my skin to justify such a pricetag. so i bought it once & probably never again. only bc the sales girl convinced me that i have severe undereye circles. pretty sure she was just trying to make a sale and i fell for it. i dont even have dark circles or anything under my eyes, never have.

I have tried many concealers under my eyes to cover dark circles that are genetic. No bags under my eyes and no wrinkles to speak of and i use Bobbi Brown Hydrating eye cream before applying this product.
-Packaging is nice and fits into cosmetic case
-Very dry and hard to apply
-Settles in and accentuates lines
-When applied looks dry and harsh
-Does not blend into skin
-Very expensive for the amount of product you get
I really want to return this product along with the corrector i bought. Super expensive for a horrible product

I have very dark hereditary circles and with the corrector and concealer I always looked refreshed. It takes some practice to get the application right so it does not crease. Works best with a pat of moisturizer to start. I have never found a concealer that does not crease some (and I have probably tried everything). A couple little pats and any creases that form during the day go away.

This product made me look 10 years older! :( It did cover up the dark circles under my eyes but the product caked under my eyes and accentuated the wrinkles horribly! I tried it for a week using and not using moisturizer first. Same results either way.

WHen I read all the bad reviews of this productI was so so surprised, this is like the best concealer of all time, This makes me look like i've had enough sleep completely naturally, I don't look like a ridiculous doll like you do if you have no shadows all together but i look like i've slept 10 hours for the last week. Because there are 2 creams it blends into my skin completely and the powder sets it really well, i'll come home at the end of the day with refreshed eyes.

I was really excited to use this product. My dark circles at first look covered and I loved the creamy texture. Unfortunately, when I look back after 20-30 minutes...it doesn't look like it has blended into my skin at all (even if I warm it up a little before using it). It creases and looks very obvious that I'm trying to cover up my dark circles. It may work for others...but it didn't work for me. They told me that they may have matched me with the wrong colors...so after paying so much I went back to get matched again...and it still had the same effect. BTW I'm an NC42.

I really thought this product was going to be my HG of concealers, considering I've heard nothing but great things about it. But, I really found it to not be any better than my Benefit Boi-ing concealer. When I heard "creamy" concealer, that's what I expected. Clearly I didn't get that, at all. It wasn't dry, but wasn't what I wanted/expected. Return!!

Oh how excited I was to get this. How happy I was when a MA applied it on the cosmetics counter. How I looked forward to covering my increasingly hollowing dark circles. And yet how dissapointed I was to find that when I got home, I looked like that "old face, young body" circus attraction.
I used this with the Corrector and was amazed by the coverage; It was flawless. You`d never think IÁd have dark circles, really bad ones from alergies and lack of sleep. But I hate how dry this makes my eye area, and it is not dry to begin with. I tried applying eye cream, MUAC Vit K cream, and it only became worse, as the product started to ball up. Tried it by itself, and it did nothing, just make my eye area baggy with deep and long fine lines, and I`m 20.
The packaging is brilliant, as it is thin and sleep, so it takes little to almost no room in a makeup bag. The powder was excellent. I tried it by itself with the Corrector and it makes the product last all day. I bought this in the Golden shade and tried it for 2.5 months before reviewing it. After that I returned it, as it made me just uncomfortable to have spent so much on something that made me look worse. Overall, great coverage and color matching, but the formula itself just stinks.

I'm not sure about this concealer. I have dry skin, so I definitely appreciate the creamy texture. While it looks great for the first couple of hours, I usually don't find the result lasting. The concealer seems to crease a little. The loose powder that came with the kit is useless to me, as it also set into lines AND make my skin look even more dry. I'm usually NC40 and Natural/Pale Yellow matches well with my skin tone. It doesn't make my under eyes look ashy or grey, which I like.

I finally splurged on a high end concealer after hunting for a hg drugstore concealer for who knows how many years. I had high hopes for this one (and the bisque corrector) but I am disappointed. This concealer kit and the corrector will be going back to Sephora soon. I like the packaging, it sorta reminds me of a contact lens case. I have the newer one with the pressed powder next to the concealer. It's sturdy and simple packaging. Now for the product: The color is right, I like the powder, and that's about it for the pros. The coverage is not what I expected and the bad part is that it creases like mofo. I'm 27 and this product makes my eyes look 57 after a couple hours. Forget getting through a 10 hour work shift with this stuff. It looks like my eye skin is falling off or something. I tried it using the Bobbi Brown eye cream (deluxe sample) and a couple other under eye moisturizers, different powders, different brushes, different application techniques, with the corrector and without, and it's just a big negative. And you can't wear this stuff without a powder unless you want to have shiny under eyes to show off your barely concealed dark circles. This is going back to Sephora and so is the corrector. I bought the Benefit Concealaholic kit and it has more products for the same price as this kit. (and another $22 for the correct, forget it!) The Benefit includes Erase Paste, 2 different colors of Boing concealer, Lemonade for the eyelids, eye brightener, 2 dual ended brushes, and a mini face primer, all in a really cute palette for $36. It's not the perfect concealer, but there's more to work with!

This product came so highly recommended by sites such as this and InStyle however this just went on quite pasty and caked later on in the day . I was not impressed.

I tried this concealer duo in Porcelain / White powder for several months and at first, I thought it was the best thing ever! I love the coverage it gives, and the cream seems to stick right on blemishes (did not use an an under eye concealer, was too thick). However, I have found cheaper products that do the same job or better (this concealer does not always last more than 6 hours). It's a great product, especially if you are a Bobbi Brown fan, but if I can dupe this for 1/3 of the price, that's how I'm going to go.
