Probably one of the best concealers I've used out of the thousands I've bought. I like the soft application with the brush tip, and how it really truly covers up redness and dark circles. It's easily blendable and lasts all day. A little sure goes a long way; I've had one tube for almost a year and a half now and am not even close to scraping the side of the bottle for product. Nice!

I have been using it to cover red spots on active or gone blemishes (I don't have any under eye problems). It does the job very well. Nice product overall. Not cakey, just the right texture. Stays on well. The lightest shade is a good match for me.

This is the best concealer I've ever used - far better than Touche Eclat highlighter and many others. I would describe this best as a highlighter/concealer as opposed to one or the other. Usually the highlighters have light reflecting particles but don't conceal well. This one does have some light reflecting particles but also conceals well thought I did find putting a second layer definitely works best. Also it is not over the top shiny with the light reflectors and it dries well but does not cake at all. The big thing I noticed is unlike the overly peachy tones of many highlighters and concealers this concealer it NOT overly peachy and I found the number 2 shade was perfect for my very very light skin tone. I cannot rave enough about this product. I have other good concealers such as Estee Lauders wand concealer and more but this one tops them all and looks so completely natural on. If you have super severely dark circles then maybe a color corrector underneath would help more than layering on really cakey heavy duty concealers. Try this - you won't be sorry. And as far as the very high price you will be amazed how far just a dab of this product goes. It will last a good while. I take the brush and brush a little product onto the side of my hand. Then I take my Bobbi Brown concealer brush and just dab a bit of product on and then wait a few minutes and put a second layer again with the brush. I use my ring finger to pat just a bit. Another great concealer is also a stick one by YSL - anti cernes multi action concealer -which is great but again the colors are very peachy. This company got it all right!!!

I bought this concealer in #3.5 - I'm asian with a medium tone but dark brownish circles under my eyes.
This color is about one to one and a half shades lighter than my skin tone and used with the Master Corrector #2 covers my circles and brightens up my face perfectly.
I've search high and low for the perfect concealer to make me look bright and awake and today, I found it.
It's light texture (fluid as opposed to a cream) only requires you to apply a tiny amount and blends extremely well and very easily. I only needed to put about 3 dots under each eye area which allowed me to cover my entire under eye.
this is such a fantastic product and I'm bummed that I didn't buy this year ago. I just bought a bobbi brown corrector last week which I'll be returning this weekend because I found my product.

This concealer is for covering redness rather than an eye concealer. It does cover redness and it has a medium coverage. There is a silicony texture when applied with fingers. It blurs my blemishes and makes it less obvious. It doesnt provide complete coverage but I dont mind for daywear. I have been using this concealer for more than a year and I've just hit pan. I really love the quality of the casing, its very very good. It has a every so slight fragrance. A luxury feel item.

I've dark eye rings (rings, not just undereye area) yet oily lids. This concealer not only even out skin tone but makes the best eye makeup base. This concealer is tailor made for upper eyelids and you can hardly find another one in the market. I used to apply foundation or concealer to upper eyelids but it'd turn greyish or eyeshadow turned color in the afternoon. Highly recommend.

This is the only concealer I've used that I've hit pan so quickly. The finish is almost like a silky creme to powder. It covers well but gets cakey at times especially if you use it under the eyes. But with some moisturizer and primer it does a descent job. I love how its compact and comes with a mirror perfect for the purse.

As I'm slightly obsessed with buying GA cosmetics now I decided to purchase this with the high precision retouch concealer. However, I think I prefer the other concealer to this because as much as I wanted to like it to use it under my eyes I was a bit disappointed as it looked slightly cakey and it just made my eye area like dry. But I must say its perfect for covering up the odd spots that I get and a bit of the redness that I get around my nose which is why I give it 4 stars. I like the packaging to this too its nice and compact with a little mirror in it.

This is one of the very few GA's products that I do not like. It is cakey, very hard to blend, does not cover circles and blemishes. The final effect is not natural.
The cream tends to become harder and harder with time and practically impossible to apply. Really horrendous product. The mirror is pretty useless as it is too small,
Not worth the money and would not re-purchase.

This concealer blends like a dream, and it basically hides everything!!plus, it's lasted quite awhile on my skin, and it's really natural!!!
However, the price is a little too steep for such a small amount! I would repurchase this again, however, if i found something better, i will definitely save my money up instead of getting this

PROs: Nice texture and glides on smoothly with minimal use and application needed
CONs: It covered up my blemishes and dark spots well, but for the amount i paid, i expected those areas to be absolutely flawless. So the price is the major let down! It retails for about $65 in Australia (i cant remember) and you only get 1 gram/mL!!! But then again, it'll last you a while because you do not need much at all.
The colour i use is 3, but a 3.5 would have been much better for my tanned skin. I recommend this product for people who are willing to pay an arm and a leg for it, because it does work. All you have to do is ask yourself whether its worth the price tag.
I'm so dissapointed! After many uses with this product, i got more frustrated everytime! The texture is very thick and cakey, thus making application very difficult. I even tried mixing it with moisturiser and primer before application, and its so thick that it wont even blend in properly! I've tried my fingers, brush, sponge, buds, nothing works! The coverage is fine, not flawless, but ok, but for the AUD$65 or so i paid for it, dont think so! I'm sure others have had a good experience with this product, but i havent and i honestly dont think its worth taking the risk for AUD$65 for 1 gram/mL! I love Giorgio Armani Beauty products, but this is truly dissapointing and i'm gutted. I so wanted to love it!

My makeup artist recommended this to me. It is incredibly light and smooth and it doesn't cake or get into fine lines. The only problem is the color...the light color is too white looking. Not pale, WHITE.
It is not good if you have really dark circles as it isn't thick, but it makes the eyes look smooth and clear.

Oh, how I wish this product actually concealed my dark circles. It would be PERFECTION if it did; sadly, it does NOT. The one amazing thing is that it does not settle into lines. It goes on smoothly, seamlessly, just beautifully. But it doesn't cover well.
Example: With CdP, it takes just a tiny bit to cover up the darkness. With this product, I ran my brush over and over and over coating both sides, applying both sides to the one eye, patting it in and then doing it ALL OVER AGAIN and it still did not cover the circles.
Shame. It really is. Purchased the lightest shade, #2. Nice match.

I got this concealer because the more fluid Master Retouch was sold out.
It's an OK product, not something that I went ga-ga over, but it blends incredibly well and never settles onto my fine lines and has slight light reflecting properties. I prefer the color a lot more than Laura Mercier's Secret Concealer or Chanel's ashy Vitalumiere Creme concealer.
I don't think it's a good concealer for blemishes, mostly because of its emolient nature, something that is adequate for my under-eye area doesn't seem fit to apply on a blemish.
I'm not sure if I'll repurchase this yet, but I'll say yes for now.

This is my second favorite concealer for undereye circles. Cle de Peau is the absolute best. GA LSF is my HG, so this obviously works great with that. I love how this is opaque, yet still highlighting. I opted for this instead of YSL's Touche Eclat, and I'm happy I did. For color reference, I am NC30 and I wear #3.5.

This is my second favorite concealer for undereye circles. Benefit Boing of all things is the absolute best, but is a very similar product. Boing has a tad stickier quality and covers a bit better and longer. Stickiness is absolutely necessary for covering dark circles and keeping them covered. So second favorite might not sound like much, but it has been a LONG, extensive and expensive search. This is really nice and doesn't crease into the lines, a problem with almost all concealers. It tends to melt in a good way under your fingertips which makes it nice for other types of concealing as well so it really is a good overall product. It is impossible for a liquid to cover circles well and if you get a stick with decent coverage such as Clea de Peau, then it creases into the lines. Not an improvement in my opinion. I own both of my fav concealers and this is definitely a nice one.

Sure, the packaging is cute and what not. The stuff you get for paying about $35 is a total joke. You get 1ml of this stuff. And it's not all that, in terms of a concealer. Doesn't cover weell, and is quiet dry. Don't buy this junk is my recommendation. And if you are, invest in a good concealer brush. You don't want to be poking your finger in this tiny case every morning.

GA's Skin Retouch is my HG undereye concealor. Now, this isn't an all purpose concealor and honestly, I don't think there's one that exist in the market that "does it all". So if you're looking for a concealor to cover blemishes or spots, Skin Retouch may not be for you. I love this concealor for undereye because the application is smooth and thin. Does not cake up or settle into fine lines. Retouch also has a slight brightening effect as well, so my eyes look better rested. I like to pat this concealor on with my ring finger rather than using a brush. I find that its easier to pat on after my eye cream has settled in (about 10-15 minutes). Just a dab into the concealor pot is needed for each undereye, and then I keep patting gently up into my inner corners, under my eye, and under my outer corners.
Another I like for Skin Retouch is the area on my upper lip. You know how you get a shadow sometimes? It's not hair, just a little shadow on my upper lip that's noticeable when wearing red lipsticks. Rather than using a whitish or fleshy lip pencil, I dab a little Skin Retouch to lighten it up. Works great for this as well!
For reference I'm Stila 30 watts, Chanel Beige, and Armani LSF 5.5 and I'm using Skin Retouch in #2.

This is my new holy grail concealer!!! I also have Cle De Peau in Ivory and Beige, which is also excellent, but much more pigmented. Cle De Peau is great for dark circles, but I found it sometimes creased in my late 30's slight crow's feet. Not good. This product is perfect for me in every way. It's liquid and has light-reflecting pearl particles in it. The coverage is light-medium without a cakey or heavy look. I use #3 now, but can easily see mixing #2 and #3 in Winter when my skin has less color. First, I put on a light eye serum and let absorb. Then, I put a few swipes of this product on the backside of my hand and dip my GA concealer brush and apply to the inside corners of my eyes and also put a bit on my lids for an eyeshadow base. No need to set with powder. Then I apply #2 fluid sheer to the upper cheekbones and outer portions of my eyes to illuminate. This concealer is amazing and never creases or cakes. I'm wondering for the review below, if a light eye serum wasn't used, a concealer brush wasn't use, or if too much product used? You can use your finger, but do so lightly and blend well. I've never had any issues with caking/creasing and is the best liquid concealer I've used! For reference, I use GA LS in #2 and #5 mixed together (less of #5 in Winter).

Expensive but very lightweight concealer unfortunately too cakey on me :(
