This is pretty good as far as concealers go but I'm still not sure it's worth $70. It camouflages undereye darkness pretty well (but mine aren't particularly dark), as well as the usual acne scars and pimples. It also covers my annoying dark spot on my right cheek pretty well, which is basically my measuring stick for whether a concealer is worth keeping. The packaging is hefty and luxurious feeling and it's pretty pigmented. For now I put that I'd buy again.
For reference, I wear NARS Alaska/Custard, MAC NC30, Shiseido O20, BE 1.2/2.0 Light. Ocher is a pinch too yellow for me at the moment but close enough.

i've been using mac's studio concealer for years and i've tried many but always went back to mac. But lately my skin condition has become a bit unstable with alot of acne and the mac makes those spots really dry at the end of the day. Then i came across cdp, it's liked the price of three mac ones but it's so worth it. It blends so well on places that are even scalppy or dry which tends to happen alot when you use any sorta acne treatment. it hides everything so well and i will continue to spend on this concealer.

Im from the UK and we dont have this brand here so when I was going to NY over xmas i couldnt wait to get this. But now i have it im so disappointed. Firstly, the shade i got and that i really thought looked the best for my nc35-37 skintone (depending how much ive been tanning that day) was ocre, and although this is perfect for blemishes and around my nose it doesnt really do much for my under eye area, like another lady said further down on the reviews, that it did nothing to brighten up the under eye which i love, you know how kim k always goes lighter under her eyes...well this didnt do that. But that was down to my colour choice and i should have gone for something lighter. However, the colour choice wasnt the only problem. I actually found this to be too creamy- as in it was so easily smudged, it moved around my face like butter...its very silky and slippery...it doesnt just stay put. I found it settled into lines under my eyes, and i dont particularly have lines there (im 27). If i touched my face where i had applied this it would instantly be on my finger nails or fingers however lightly i touched, but that never happens with my usual foundation (any LM/estee lauder double wear light) It was just too slippery for me, and i just need something to stay put once its on not move and slide around..lasting power wasnt great i had to re apply a few times..overall very disappointing as i had such high hopes for this concealer...so far becca compact concealer has been the best for blemishes/spots and shiseido natural finish concealer for under eye area or mufe. This one is also too thin texture for me. I did like the nice compact pen style packaging though.

I was very hesitant to buy this concealer because of the price. My opinion changed the moment I caved in and bought it because it actually covered my circles and made me look rested. With this concealer, I use very little, it stays in place and it even covers pimples. My sister has now become a fan as well.

LOVE this concealer. One of the best I've tried period! It makes, Urban Decay and MAC look like kid stuff. The color is perfect, most make me orange but this was right on the spot. It feels like butter, it covers well, and the coverage is beautiful, heavy and flawless but feels light! Would recommend to anybody, even though it is a little pricey!

My HG concealer; I buy it in multiples so that I NEVER run out. it is worth the high price, no question. I have melasma, and this is the only concealer that keeps my secret for me! :) it blends to look just like skin, and covers anything. I have even swam with it on and it stays, even though it does not claim to be waterproof. I apply it with a sponge and dust it with translucent powder, and that really makes it stay.

Ultra creamy and very blendable, long-lasting wear and coverage. Worth every penny.

This is THE best concealer....enough said.

i got mine in ochre yesterday, i use it mainly for spot concealing, when i was trying it on in the shop, the ma did make my undereye look grayish blue... and it was very drying... as she applied it with a sponge tip, i find fingers work better as it heats the concealer a bit before getting on the undereye... its more natural and non-cakey!
it a very very good match for my asian yellow toned... i also like how creamy it is... it blends well and has excellent pigmentation... you really just need a little to cover a spot... the staying powder is so so and it smudges away quite easily... but im pretty happy with it.. and i like the stick design, my previous concealer is the mufe full coverage and i have to mix no.6 & 8 to get the right shade... which could be pain in the arse for retouching.. this is way handier!
i like it despite its price.. as it is a pretty mega stick compared to my bobbi brown retouch stick, clinque and shisedo sticks. It should last me a while~~

This is a really expensive concealer that's super creamy and super luxurious. the color match was good for my NC30-35 skin.
It's a little too yellow to be used for my under eyes so I use this to spot conceal.
Comes in a stick form
Super creamy and buttery texture
Opaque and covers really well
Finish is very nice velvety/ smooth
90 dollars for a lipstick sized stick
wipes away easily- doesnt have a super staying power
can look cakey if I try to build on it
Age: 36-43 Skin: Combination, Fair, Neutral Hair: Brown, Straight, Fine Eyes: Blue
PROS: Lived up to the hype pretty well. Didn't run on me. Great coverage/highly pigmented, but not cakey (may want to use an eye cream first.) Lasted pretty well on the skin. I'm an N15 (leaning toward NC) and I was ivory. Ochre was too dark.
CONS: Very limited color selection (there were only four colors.) Price.
ALTERNATES: For DS alternate, Mayb. Mineral Power. HE alternate is Dior Hydrating (have to layer that one if you want heavier coverage, but it's beautiful).

Hands down my favorite concealer. Matches my tan olive skin perfectly. Very good coverage and stays on well. Too bad it's so pricey.

Although I love the packaging, I wish that this product would be a little bit thicker. It seems like it's just medium coverage (or maybe I have really bad dark circles) but i wish this would cover more ... it's a little too expensive for average concealer although this brand is really high end but they can make it better for the price ... also, it settles on the fine lines :(

LOVE this stuff! Super expensive but it's lasted me two years and the coverage is phenomenal.

I hate OCHRE, but I LOVE BEIGE. I bought his ochre one and even though I am tanned skinned this just didn't make my face glow like the beige one did. This did not brighten up my eyes. I love how much that this concelour covers though, it's beautiful, but I prefer beige because going lighter under the eyes makes the whole face glow.

This used to be my *HG* concealer, but apparently they've changed the formula!
CDP has added sunscreen while, supposedly, all the other ingredients have remained the same. A little used to go a long way for me (which justified the cost), but now I find myself layering--somehow, the consistency has changed and no longer glides on effortlessly. Even the color cannot compare to the original--it's now dull and flat, which is terrible when you're trying to cover dark circles. CDP should've never ruined a good thing!!!

Okay. I have COMPLETELY changed my opinion about this product!! Initially i used it, I wasn't impressed AT ALL and consequently it went in the bottom of my makeup stash ...but many months later, i decided to give this another go..and I'm sooo happy i did!!! Although the color could still be a bit better - the consistency is great. I apply it directly onto my skin (after allowing eye cream to absorb for a minute or so before) and then pat/blend with my finger. Afterwhich, i use the Bobbi Brown loose powder toset it. AND this is the ONLY concealer that does not budge..ONLY. I did a mini-experiment of my own and this was a winner!! Would definately purchase it again. It is ridiculously expensive but it is a phenomenal product.

So I had to see what it was all about. I got some of this concealer put on at CDP and it seemed like my undereye bags had literally vanished. I was super impressed. But with the 70 dollar pricetag, I wanted to wait and see what else was around. Well, I started using MUFE full cover which I found to be just as great, except I would need to reapply about 5-6 hours into my long days between school and the hospital. So, I shelled out the money for the CDP, and tested it on one eye vs. MUFE on the other.
At the end of the day I felt like MUFE actually won out. CDP may be better with people with drier skin. I have super oily skin. Now, Im 24 and am getting little expression lines here and there but I still look my age if not less.... and hydration isn't really a problem (I use an eye cream too anyway though). MUFE really does the job with a full on coverage of undereye bags, and its mattifying effect probably seems a little cakey if you put on too much at once, but all you need is a swipe to conceal and then you can always touch up later if needed--I really did feel that of all the concealers Ive tried in my life though MUFE wins out, and CDP just doesn't. True, its texture is amazing (buttery), but it's too slippery almost to stay put, and it doesnt conceal as well as MUFE does really. Its color match is probably a little bit better, but with undereye concealers, a little bit lighter or brighter is not a big deal since that is really more of the trend anyway and just gives an undereye highlight. I felt like with CDP I had to set with undereye powder as well, but not so with MUFE. Also, it makes my undereye makeup more smeary even with UDPP, whereas MUFE just doesnt because its more matte. Plus, Im not a big fan of this roll up type of tube, which I find pretty unhygeinic and gross looking after a while. Prefer MUFE's squeeze tube, which is also about half the price at $38. All in all, Im returning the CDP and sticking with my MUFE and will probably not purchase CDP in the future unless I feel like my skin is getting too dry for MUFE.

I can't believe it took me so long to finally cave and buy this. I was happy with MUFE's Lift Concealer for a long time, but all of a sudden it started looking cakey and dry under my eyes, which accentuated every line. Then I tried Trish McEvoy's new pen concealer, which is awful. So on to Cle de Peau. I have very yellow undertones, and pretty bad dark circles and a couple spots of melasma I need to cover. When I received this, I was surprised at how dark, beige, and muddy it looked in the tube. But on my face and under my eyes, it's magic. No muddiness, not obviously yellow (and it is quite yellow). Just great coverage with no migration into lines or looking dry and cakey. The texture is sublime--thick and creamy, yet it's unbelieveably smooth and blends easily with gentle patting. And it almost seems to merge with the skin, smoothing the texture (especially under the eyes) and looking truly seamless. I set it with the tiniest bit of Chantecaille loose powder and it lasts all day. I use a concealer brush to pick up a tiny amount and place it where I want it. I am very happy with this concealer and would rebuy in the unlikely event that I ever run out!
Edit: I have to thank the reviewers who suggested just lightly swiping a finger over the top of this concealer and patting it into the undereye area. It is definitely the best method--you don't get too much product, and it just melts into the skin. If I get any unevenness or creases while applying, then I use a concealer brush to smooth them out. Perfection.
Edit #2: I must eat my words. I started using GA's High Precision Retouch and find that it works much better for me than CdP. I didn't think it was possible. Using them side-by-side, I find that the CdP looks less natural, it cakes, and it looks like hell under my eyes after a few hours. Additionally, there's no balancing-moisturizer-and-concealer dance using the Armani, and I've gotten a better color match. Sorry , CdP.

This is one of the better concealers out there. I really liked Laura Mercier's concealer, but that was a little too thick and pasty for my taste. Cle de Peau is very thin and silky in consistency. It does it's job. While I do like this concealer very much, I gave it a 4 simply because of the price being so high, and because I think they lack certain colors. Because of this, I think there might be something better out there that I have yet to discover. Until then, I will keep repurchasing.
Update on 09/19/09: This concealer looks great in pictures. It looks great at first, but after a few hours as it starts to settle it starts to look cakey, piled on and accentuate my fine lines.
