So much YES for this product. I'm 41, am starting to develop a few fine lines around the eyes, and cannot wear a concealer that is too heavy or dry on any part of my face. No, this is not opaque. It is not a heavy-duty concealer. But it reduces redness, brown spots, and undereye circles while leaving you skin looking like...skin. I am in love.

This is one of my two favorite concealers. (The other is Rimmel Match Perfection). I just like how the formula is easy to blend, and doesn't crease (on me at least.) I also have RMS UnCover Up and I definitely prefer the Glossier to it. Even beyond the fact that Glossier Stretch Concealer is half the price of RMS UnCover Up, the formula of the RMS is dryer, slightly thicker, and more work to blend. Both I can use for an all over very light coverage, and so skipping foundation altogether. I need the most help under my eyes and this works well enough for what I want. It's probably not going to be enough if you have serious dark undereyes. I have the Stretch Concealer in Medium and I'm an NC 20.

Just got it and tried for the first time. It's strangely greasy. Did not expect! The coverage is OK. But honestly, I have a lot of drug store concealers that work just as well, that were much cheaper.

Another conflicting product from Glossier! I have it in the shade fair, and when thinly applied in large patches to the face it acts as a beautiful glowy base that I absolutely love. I found myself admiring how great my skin looked on these days. Additionally, the little shiny pot it comes in is really sturdy, and the ingredient list is nice and simple.

However, all positivity aside now, this product contains cocoa butter. As read on the website, they describe it as "A natural fat full of the good stuff that promotes skin elasticity and suppleness", this is true, but ranked from 1-5 with other moisturizing agents on their "comedogenicity" level (pore clogging abilities) cocoa butter emerges in the deep end with high comedogenicity rating of 4. I have never had acne problems in my entire life, but when I looked at my skin the day after generously wearing this concealer, my skin looked bumpy, spotty, and red. If you care about your pores, stay faaaar away from this concealer. The glowy finish can be found elsewhere in a BB cream or Cushion foundation.

If you can wear it without getting zits then congratulations, but buyer beware- get to a store and somehow try this first before forking out $20. Your pores will thank you.

I have been testing this concealer for more than a month, tried every possible make-up application technique under the sun just to make it work - but alas! This concealer is just so bad.

I have dry skin and am in my 20s. I also have very dark circles under my eyes. So knowing that this concealer had avocado and jojoba in it, I figured it would be simply amazing for me. However, it settles into every little fine line and pore on my face (and under my eyes). I speak more about my application techniques and overall product quality in a separate review (http://www.partyparrotblog.com/single-post/2017/07/19/Is-It-Worth-The-Hype-Glossier-Stretch-Concealer), but no matter what I did (how much I exfoliated) it just sat there on top of my skin, looking like a greasy mess. Don't recommend! I would rather add more money and buy something from Sephora instead.

This has a pretty good coverage--I do a couple swirls with my fingertip and apply by tapping (and it is very buildable; sometimes I tap on several layers.) I use it on any hyperpigmentation, redness, red zits, and big pores I have. It obviously won't render these things invisible, but it gets pretty close to that. This doesn't break me out, which I am absolutely thankful for, and makes my skin softer somehow--must be the avocado oil and jojoba oil and cocoa butter--and VERY dewey--credit to the oils. Again, the oils do not break me out.
I gave it a 4/5 because it can get greasy and separate (only around my t-zone) if I don't set my oily ass face or blot now and then.

Pros:
blends into my skin--doesn't make me look like I'm wearing makeup but makes me look like I have great skin
doesn't feel heavy
dEWEY
Buildable coverage
My skin doesn't react with acne or irritation

Cons:
can get greasy in oily places --> easily solved by blotting (which doesn't take off the makeup)

So all in all pretty solid!

Edit: Now I actually use a flat concealer brush rather than my finger. I find that I have more control with the brush, since I tend to cake on too much with my finger. And when I blend the edges out with the brush, it won't take away the coverage on top of the blemishes/hyperpigmentations, unlike when I just tap at it with my finger like crazy. Using the brush probably somewhat defeats the purpose of Glossier's on-the-go, all-fingers philosophy, but I actually feel like the brush is more efficient to use!

I'm surprised that I ended up liking this! I was using the NARS radiant concealer in custard and thou its lovely it runs out so quickly. So I decided to try this in shade medium. I heard so much about how it gives so little coverage, but for me it's really sufficient! Definitely buidable. I do two to three layers for areas I want more coverage. I don't like a face full of make up. But a natural finish. This is gorgeous. Packaging is classy in a weighted pot. Only thing is that I have to dip my finger in.

This concealer is really creamy and soft, which I love - the color is perfect. It's strange because they only offer 5 colors (I'm in dark) and my skintone is pretty hard to match, but when it warms up it blends in really well.

The only things I don't love are a) the price, and b) it's too creamy. I have to go over twice with powder just so that my under-eyes aren't shiny.

I probably wouldn't repurchase because of the creaminess and the fact that I can just use my foundation as a concealer bc my dark circles don't bother me that much.

I like this on my face but if I use it under my eyes, I need to use a corrector first (currently Fiona Stiles peach corrector). It wears beautifully with the skin tint. It doesn't cover much but with the aesthetic of the line, it would be weird if it did.
I'm NC15, and use shade Light.

Me: Olive NC20ish with normal to dry and very sensitive skin.

What I love: Beautiful dewy skin like finish. It looks so natural on the skin and blends in perfectly. I love using just a little of this on its own on any redness around my nose/ cheeks and then under my eyes. It makes me look like I have naturally fabulous skin and not like I'm wearing makeup. A bit of this + Benefit Gimme Brow + curled eyelashes is my go to for a me but just a bit better look. I've not found any other concealer that looks this skin like and natural. I find it has decent staying power on my skin type lasting around 6-8 hours - longer if I set with loose powder. It is definitely not as long wearing as another favourite of mine - Mac Pro Longwear although the PLW doesn't look as natural. It's fragrance free and doesn't irritate my sensitive skin. The shade match - Medium - is also perfect for use either on my redness or undereyes.

What I don't love: I wish Glossier either retailed or shipped to Australia. I used a mail forwarding service. I also don't like the limited shade range of this product, it seems like a lot of people would struggle to find a match. It is a lighter coverage concealer - I would prefer something slightly fuller in coverage but it probably wouldn't look as natural if that was the case. It doesn't completely cover my undereye darkness but it does brighten the area and make it look a heck of a lot better without creasing or creating any crepe-iness.

Overall really enjoying this product and would repurchase for as long as I'm enjoying a very natural skin look.
