This definitely is a great product. My under eye circles are concealed and the highlighter does well. There are no cons about this product, just the price that is why I do not want to purchase it again.

I read a lot of reviews about this concealer and Maybelline's Dream Lumi Touch Highlighting Concealer. I decided that I would give this one a try first as it seemed to have more positive reviews than Maybelline's concealer.
Despite the name "true match", none of L'Oreal's products in the True Match line actually match my skintone (and they sure as heck don't self-adjust either). I'm right in between W2 and W3. Since the W3/W4 Touche Magique concealer is too dark for me, I have to use the W1/W2 shade. When first applied, it does look a tad bit too light on me. But once the rest of my makeup is on, it seems to blend right in with everything and doesn't make me look washed-out.
As a concealer designed specifically for use under the eyes, and as someone with particularly dark hereditary circles under my eyes, this concealer does a pretty darn good job at hiding them and helping me look less tired overall. The coverage is good enough to hide my circles but the texture of the concealer is not so heavy that it ever looks cakey. It's not oily or too dry either. It's a very workable consistency and blends very well.
It creases only so slightly, which is pretty amazing given that every single other concealer save for one other that I've tried always creases and migrates into the lines under my eyes no matter what the concealer's claims are to the contrary. I've tried pot concealers that require a brush, creamy pencil concealers, stick concealers, concealers with applicator wands, mineral powder concealers, concealers in tubes, roll-on concealers...yep, I've tried many of them. And this one stays right where it's applied for the most part. If you have naturally occuring lines under the eyes that aren't age related, then you know what I'm talking about when I say almost no concealer of any kind won't end up in those lines at least a little bit. And this one does too, but so minimally that I'm very pleased with it.
Unlike some of the other reviewers, I can't comment on whether or not there is enough product in the tube to justify it's higher cost. I don't use this concealer on a daily basis, as I swap it with Garnier's Anti-Dark Circle Eye Roller. But I do use L'Oreal's concealer several times a week. I bought it two months ago and though I have no idea how much is left in the tube, it still comes out whenever I turn the base to advance the product. One click is all I need, and I don't even use the full amount that comes out in the brush bristles.
I do quite enjoy that the concealer comes in a compact pen-like tube. It doesn't take up much room in a small makeup bag. It's also got attractive packaging. The brush bristles are quite soft and don't irritate the skin under my eyes like some similar brushes in other brands have. I've also never had a problem with the product not advancing when the bottom of the tube is turned.
While I'm curious enough about other concealers of this kind that I would explore other options, I would certainly be disappointed if L'Oreal ever discontinued this concealer. I may just buy it again in case any others I try end up being trash-worthy.

The loreal MUA introduced this to me. I just twist the tip, the color appears and paint on my wrist to even color, then dot remainder on the brush under my eyes. It really works for the dark circles. They say this is a dupe for YSL Touch eclat. Honestly, this is way cheaper. It doesnt dry out the skin around my eye. The texture is not too thick and blends well. I also use this with my Bobbi brown concealer brush. Excellent combo! Doesnt leave any crease /fine lines under my eyes even after hours of use. Great product!

This concealer is what I had hoped Maybelline's Dream Lumi touch would be. The formula is thicker and gives more coverage. It covers up my dark circles (mine aren't too dark) well and it does give me that highlighted look without sparkles. Yay!
It lasts all day with very minimal creasing after a very long day. (I'm in my mid 40s so I've come to expect a little creasing with concealers)
It can look cakey if the skin under your eyes is on the dry eye so definitely prep that area beforehand. If you have really dark circles, it may not cover as well unless you apply a few layers. (being mindful of the cakiness factor)
Take care not to click too many times otherwise you'll end up with more product than necessary.
I use Warm Beige W 3-4-5 and it's the best match for me. (NC30/35)
The price is a bit high for a drugstore concealer but I always look out for sales.
Another great find with L'oreal!

I wanted a concealer for my dark circles under my eyes, and this did not do it for me. The colour made me look too white under my eyes and did not really blend in to my skin in a natural way. It also feels a bit too dry, and after a long day I could see that it had settled in the fine lines under the eyes. I will not repurchase.

I love this concealer! It's the best one I've tried by a clear mile. It covers up my dark circles really well and stays in place all day. For the quality of this concealer it's a pretty good price too. I've tried other concealers but I think I will always stick with this one now. I definitely recommend it.

I'm glad that I follow up the reviews on MUA and bought this high lighter pen.
I've never bought a high lighter pen in my life because I never thought I would ever need it. I had no dark circles or any thing needs to be covered in my early 20s, when I tried on my friend's famous YSL Touche Eclat, it actually created fine lines on my under eye area and looked cakey on me which is not impressive. Nowadays in my late 20s, years of bad living habits (sleeping late, smoking, don't drink enough water, ...) finally makes me pay back. I have very visible dark circles, under eye bags, fine lines.... :((( even after I quit smoking and started living healthy, these signs of aging just won't go (seriously people, start taking care of yourself before it's too late).
Back to the product, it is cheap ($10 CAD in Walmart), so as packaging... which I don't mind at this stage, I may buy the HE one if I become queen of the highlighters one day. The product is great, I got the Rose Porcelain and the shade hides my dark circles very well. You really just need a little bit of product to cover the shadow. It is quite pigmented, a little product can cover a large area, so be careful to use. Too much product can create unnatural and cakey looking. I wouldn't say it's moisturizing, but maybe because of my skin is extremely dry itself. It does contain paraben but so as all those popular HE ones (some of them even contain more dangerous chemicals, so do your research before you spend a lot of money on some thing can potentially harm you). Unfortunately there hasn't been top-rated highlighters that are harsh chemical free, so personally, I will limit my use of the product.
Overall, a great product that does its job well. However I still think we should focus more on taking care of ourselves rather than hiding as many things on our face as possible.
Update: They have changed the packaging for Touche Magique. Now it's in a thicker pen, and the brush is much softer. Also the twist thing works better and the packaging doesn't look cheap like the old one. I was able to exchange mine to the new packaging in a darker shade (rose beige). I also love the rose beige on me better. It's more natural on my skin (rose porcelain was a bit too white for me) and completely covers my dark circles. Just keep it in mind, if you gonna buy this product make sure you pick up the one in the new packaging.

love this concealer. I bought it in the shade ivory beige W1-2. It has a tad yellow undertone to it but covers dark spots beautifuly. I love the application stick. You click the bottom to squeeze the product out. on a brush applicator works like a charm awesome! I have super fair skin and this works great just dont over applicate.. or it'll look yellowy.

Awesome product! I used it to hide my dark circles and it worked wonders. The coverage is good & the consistency is quite thick but super blendable. Definitely will buy this once i found it again

I find that this product covers up pretty much anything! I have very red scars on my face and it covers them amazingly, with a touch of powder on top! However as I do have very pale skin, I find the colour that I use slightly yellow-ish, I definately need a white concealer :( I have used many concealers in the past to try to cover up my scars and any breakouts that I get and nothing has worked as good as this product. A very good point about this concealer is that it lasts all day without needing a touch up. I have been using this product for over a year now and I dont think I could use any other concealer! Would definately recommend!
