Ok so I got suckered into the bargain bin of my local pharmacy (my weakness!), and picked this up yesterday.I had a feeling it would be not great, but wow is it bad! The roller ball just clogs up after you've used it once, and when you do manage to get some product out it streaks and doesn't blend at all and is frankly the worst consistency concealer I have ever tried. It just sort of clings to the skin in the most hideous way imaginable and then disappears if you do manage to blend it as other reviewers mentioned, Shame on you for selling this terrible product Bourjois, I trusted you a bit more than this! (I liked their Healthy mix concealer just fine except it came out in large globs). They have real issues with concealer distribution - it's not that difficult surely?! Steer well clear of this, I want my money back Bourjois, even at 1.99 this stuff is a rip off! I presume this is being discontinued, hence the bargain bin, but don't be tempted like I was, total waste of money.

This is positively the WORST concealer I've ever tried and this is considering the facts that I've probably tried more than 50 different ones in my lifetime, and that I usually love Bourjois. First, the ridiculous packaging. A roller ball? Really? Just dabbing the concealer on, a wad comes out. If you roll the ball, you're likely to look like you dipped your eye sockets in nude paint. Second, this consistency of this concealer is really odd. When I pat it on with my fingertips, it doesn't BLEND. I get strange patches everywhere and when I dab some more to get rid of the patches, all the concealer comes off, leaving absolutely zero coverage. It's like it's waterproof or something - it doesn't stay on unless in unsightly patches.

Seems like the only selling point of this concealer is that it's organic. In that case, I'd be better off buying organic fruit. At least I get more use out of it.

I usually don't toss almost unused makeup items as it's such a waste but I didn't think twice about dumping this one.

Ok, I am trying this out today. Got this free with my other purchases. I was using the older healthy mix concealer but that was stinging my eyes.
Since this is more organic, I'd like to give this a try instead.

The packaging is similar to healthy mix except now it comes with a roller head. I think this helps with puffy under eye application. Nice, didn't sting or irritate my sensitive skin.

This is a very good coverage concealer. It is in fact the highest coverage liquid concealer I have used. I got it from a cosmeticfairy store. I have not seen it sold anywhere else in Boots or Superdrug. Normally nothing covers my dark under eyes. Bobbi Brown is the best I have used and also Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation doubles for me as a concealer. It covers my under eyes perfectly, does not crease and stays on until I take it off. No more comments of how tired I look from random people. I have tried endless amount of concealers high and low but they all seem to let my blue shade through. FABULOUS product.

Before I purchased it, I tried other concealers too. Bourjois Healthy Mix Concealer(liquid) which is as small this Bio detox organics tube, Bourjois Healthy Mix Touche Concealer(Pen/Touche Eclat) and Revlon ColorStay Blemish Concelar.Well,why I chose this one is because,the ingredients that almost pure naturals and first I thought it was a face concealer but I do wrong, this one is for undereye concealer(after I read the anti puffiness effect and its massage roller),so that's why I avoided to buy the touche eclat healthy mix(because touche eclat usually uses as undereye concealer) and off course because my skin now breaks out and dull,have some redness due to bb cream using(now I'm regret to use korean bb cream).at first, I felt it's okay.the thickness of the cream is not as light as revlon colorstay for blemishes purpose,but it is quite good,not really has no odor(if it had a good smell,so it may contained fragrance that's not good for skin).but after I purchased and wore it,ohhh,,,it's bad!!! I used to apply for long hours just to blend it well and even I have no idea why it is always make my face looks so cakey.The only thing that I love this product is only about the color,the no.82(light to medium) matches to my skin,but I think revlon colorstay is okay for me too,but the color tends to be slightly lighter than this no.82,maybe because the revlon gives more sheer and translucent color finish.eum,well I will give you the pros and cons.
- the color is well match to my skin,eventhought I'm asian
- the price is quite affordable(eventhought the Bourjois healthy mix and Revlon ColorStay are cheaper than this product)
- It won't break out your skin(my skin now becomes acne prone and has many blemishes after using korean bb cream but this products doesn't make your blemishes goes worse)
- Allergic free(this product does't irritate me much whereas I usually put many layers on my face while using it,when I tried Revlon ColorStay,it was so lightweight and feel very soft but then it changed after few minutes,burned my skin.maybe I'm a lil allergic with some ingredients in Revlon ColorStay)
- It is using roller as applicator(it is better than using brush applicator,more hygienic and can be uses longer,but the roller applicator sometimes gets uneasy to apply when I put it on my undereyes,but it's quite good to use on my cheecks and forehead areas)
- The packaging is simple and very small(I love the packaging)

Cons :
- it dries out immediately on my skin(when I blend it with vaseline,it looks bad,at first looks oily,few hours later still goes bad.dry easily.make my skin becomes more dry in winter and when I cover it with loose powder,it looks so cakey and uneven)
So,in my opinion...
This product dries out easily,makes face skin looks so cakey and uneven
It is not lightweight and soft(The Revlon ColorStay for Blemish purpose Concealer is much much much softer than this product but unfortunately the revlon colorstay burns my skin so that's why for me bourjois is better for the ingredients eventhought it won't cure acnes or any kind of pimple but it doesn't make my blemishes becomes worse)
It has no odor.if you may consider good smell concealer better,try Bourjois healthy mix range,they smell good,so fruity.
And quite affordable
But I should purchase another concealer later

I want to revise my review after going back to my country in Indonesia.
When I applied it in winter, it was hard to apply.dries out quickly...
but when I apply this concealer in Indonesia which has no winter...
this product works perfectly!
It's not a perfect product but almost perfect,
the staying power is so-so,
the coverage is medium and quite good to conceal my blemishes
the texture is creamy
i'm being in love with this product now...
I'm regret that I didn't purchase it two or more when in Taiwan, and also didn't purchase the foundation version because when I read the benefits for its foundation version(liquid foundation) can be a good anti pollution or pollution regret!!
Now I might say I would love to buy this product again.
This concealer also can be used as a good foundation!!!

I thought this product would be good with such a nice, refreshing name but i hated this, it went on like a paste and was incredibly difficult to blend, it was patchy under my eyes and caked. It made any blemishes i had super obvious and even the lightest shade was orange under my eyes and being honest the foundation had the same effect on my skin, blotchy and gross.

Sorry to say, but this is one of the worst concealers I have used. Don't get me wrong, I love Bourjois's stuff, their mascaras & nail polish are great, but this one...
It doesn't really do the job of concealing. I needed to apply layers & layers & layers to conceal. ( not that I have got bad skin, I don't use foundation at all, and have barely any spots, I only want to cover the little black eye circle mainly) Not to mention that after those layers, it still doesn't really conceal much...
Before that I have been using concealers from the body shop, they are good not great, but with just 1 stroke under each eye, I am usually fine. Tried this one for a change - a big failure.

Now I am using Touche Magique of L'Oreal, it's really really good, so smooth & conceals very well, highly recommend!

This concealer is intended to be partially organic, and when I heard this, I wanted to give it a chance. I used it for my skin, especially to hide acne marks. It has a medium coverage. For me, it has a unusual consistency, I did not like it. The application is not easy. And the worst thing about this product is it's awful smell. I just stopped using because of these reasons.

Got this on sale today! I was advised to use this concealer cuz of the humd climate I live in and the oily skin I have...I was given a good match to cover up my occasional undereye circles.

The website description:
Anti-pufiness concealer with fresh effect massaging roll-on. This is the perfect concealer to fight dark circles, puffiness and swollen eyelids.

Its soft focus pigments hide dark circles and illuminate the eyes while the roll-on applicator helps reduce puffiness.

The ice cube effect metallic roll-on massages the eye contour area for an instant soothing and decongesting effect.

And... its good for skin!
Non occlusive, oil-free formula
Ophthalmologically tested

Ecocert certified : 98.8% of total ingredients are from natural origin and 14.4% of total ingredients are from Organic Farming

I don't know how much all that means to my skin, but the concealer goes on easily...the rollerball helps for smooth application...the lasting power is meh...4 hours without setting powder but I'm sure I can try and get more out of it when I want to! Didn't irritate my acne-prone skin at all (I used a bit of it on my acne scars worked rather well!)

I guess its a good concealer worth the money...but definitely not heavy duty. I say, snatch it from a Boots store near you when it goes on sale and try it out! :D
