I was extremely disappointed by this stick concealer. Its coverage was very sheer and it wasn't long-lasting either. Dried to a powdery, obvious-looking finish. Very limited range of shades. Also, the size of the product is a little wider in diameter than I would prefer, making it harder to touch up small spots.

It's an expensive product and it does have beautiful packaging. It's a short, wide tube with a magnetic closure that snaps shut really nicely. Very sleek and elegant-looking. I guess that's where all my money went because the product itself is definitely subpar.

I much prefer NARS Stick Concealer, not only does it give opaque and long-lasting coverage but it also comes in an excellent range of shades as well.

Will not buy this again.

One of the best stick concealers I've found yet (unless, of course, you are willing to spend nearly twice as much on Cle de Peau, which is superior and a better shade match in Ochre for me). I am an olive-skinned NC 35/40+ according to the season and use the natural tan/deep beige shade in this product, which is a good match, if a bit light for the summer. What I like best about this product is its ease of application (just a few swipes on over my daily eye sun protection, and then I lightly pat it in with my fingers), as well as the fact that it doesn't settle ino the fine lines around my eyes. Consistency is fairly creamy and coverage is about medium, but then again I do not have heavy undereye circles. I also do not use it anywhere but under my eyes, so one tube has lasted me a long time. The packaging is nice and neat for travel, but be sure to check yours carefully before throwing away the receipt - my first tube had defective packaging (it wouldn't close). All in all, a solid product that I would likely purchase again, unless I get the nerve to go for the Cle de Peau!

I have to admit the consistence of the concealer is absolutely lovely, silky and smooth. But personally for me the problem was that it does not stay. When the half of the day has passed away so is my concealer. Also the colors. Sadly the lightest is too yellow. Will not repurchase. Sorry Edward.

This might be in the top 5 worst concealer products I have ever used. Covers absolutely nothing. Does not stay put, creases and melts off the face almost immediately, even with powder to set. The only positive thing was the color was great.

This is absolutely my HG of concealers. I have dark circles with prominent veins under my eyes and have tried just about every concealer on the market. The long list includes Almay, Cover Girl, Lancome, Guerlin, YSL, Laura Mercier, Trish McEvoy, Chantecaille, Cle de Peau, Estee Lauder, Bare Escentuals, Clinique, etc. Nothing has really worked, and as I have gotten older everything just seems to sit on the surface, and make me look like a dried up prune by the end of the day. This is truly an amazing product - a bit expensive, but you don't need to use hardly any, and it truly conceals.
P.S. I met Edward Bess in NYC at Bergdorf's when he was just getting his produtct line going. He is the sweetest person!

LOVE this concealer! I am NC30 and got this in Soft Beige and it's the perfect neutral beige, which is what I look for in a concealer. Other than this, the other concealer I like is MAC's studio finish in the pot, but this will be my new everyday concealer as the texture is much better than MAC's. A little goes a long way. It has a drier consistency (and along with that it does have the clay-like smell, which is the only negative I can think of) but once you heat it with your fingers it blends in wonderfully and is not as thick as MAC's studio finish but still gives great coverage and looks like skin. EB is my new makeup love. Also really like the packaging - it comes in a small tube that closes magnetically. My first thought when I bought this was that the tube sure was tiny but after using it, I think it's a reasonable size - you don't need much of this so one tube will last awhile. I HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend this concealer for everyone whether you need a little or a lot of coverage. Looks totally natural and hides everything. Will be buying this again and again.

Excellent product. Covers VERY dark circles without needing a corrector (amazing) underneath. I ordered and used the lightest shade Ivory and it's fantastic. Ladies with undereye lines, this did NOT go into them. What more can I say?! LOL

This reminds me of the OLD CdP concealer but with a tiny bit more slip. Love it, just love it. $38 is a great price for something that covers, doesn't go into lines and is the right shade for this NW10.
