I've used this product for a couple years in the past, and then took a break, looking for something different. When I spotted this in store again, I went and purchased it, because I realized I had better results with this than with many other concealers I've tried.

I bought the Fair Light, which is a pretty good match for me. (As far as I can tell there is only one other shade, which is slightly darker, so there's not much available for super pale or darker-skinned people.)

The texture is a bit thicker than your standard concealer that you would apply with a doe-foot applicator, but it's not as thick as a stick (obviously). For me it serves a good middle ground for decent, blendable coverage since thinner concealers don't always do the job for me, and stick ones can look cakey if not carefully blended.

I love the staying power on this one along with how it conceals my dark spots (not entirely but it makes them look dramatically better). Once it's blended and set (usually with translucent powder) it lasts through humid weather and sweating, and doesn't run. Again, I use this primarily for acne scars or to conceal breakouts, and that with moisturizer (on really good days) or tinted moisturizer (on OK days) I can have a quick makeup routine and get out the door.

I find it too thick to do a great job concealing my undereye circles. (It would do that, but it's too thick and can easily settle in lines, and since I'm in my 40s, I deal with lines, puffiness and dark circles, and I'd rather not emphasize that).

There's no smell either, which is appreciated, and it's easy to use thanks to the little squeeze tube.

I have used this for several years but fell for the hype about Cle De Peau concealer and purchased and used it for a year as I refused to try anything else after spending a ridiculous$70 on it. I now realize that the Conceal RX is a better product and is about 64 dollars cheaper. I dab it on with finger under eyes and dot very lightly over my face. I then blend it with a stippling brush. ELF has a good one. The finished look is smooth and buffed.

The only reason I wouldn't repurchase this is because they need to make a few darker shades. I'm 47, and don't do the whole "super light" under eye conceal look, so that's the only reason it doesn't work for me personally. If you are fairer skinned, this will be one of the best concealers you will buy. It has great coverage, just not the right shade choices for me, I was able to make it work by mixing a bit of it with my fit me concealer in the color sand, but just can't see me repurchasing it again if I can't use it alone. Fair skinned girls definitely need to get this!

Finally! Brilliant concealer. I am soooo glad I tried this.

I have tried a few higher end concealers over the years, as well as a couple of drugstore ones, and I have been mostly disappointed. The last one I tried was Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer (check out my review of that one). I was about to order a couple more high end concealers to try from Sephora during the 20% VIB sale which ended yesterday. While reading reviews here trying to decide which ones to get, I started looking at drugstore concealer reviews as well, and I saw this. It seemed to get so many mostly glowing reviews even from middle aged and older women that I just had to try it. Long story short, I ended up saving $60+ on my Sephorder by not getting the concealers.

I am 46. I don't want something that will settle into fine lines, or worse, make it look like I have more lines than I actually do. This doesn't do either of those things. It's so nice, and it lasts and stays puts and most importantly it ACTUALLY COVERS my dark undereye circles. Simply amazing!

I got it in the Fair/Light shade, which really is pretty light -- exactly what I wanted. It could be sheered out if you needed to. This starts out creamy but once spread out, it dries into almost a second skin film. Not in a dried out cracked crinkly looking way, but in a "i'm staying put and there is nothing you could do to make me budge" kind of way. This really doesn't accentuate lines or settle into them. I use setting powder over it, but it feels like I might be able to get away without doing so. It also covers the broken capillaries on the sides of my nose very nicely. I have only applied it with my finger, which worked beautifully. I haven't yet tried a beauty blender or brush.

Another thing I love about this product is that it comes in a hygienic tube and you just squeeze out what you need -- no messing with a doe-foot applicator. A little goes a long way. It's a rather utilitarian looking tube, but for its price the package doesn't need to be pretty. Finally, the price is unbeatable: currently $9.99 at Ulta, and they also had a BOGO 50% off deal.

About the only potential weakness I could think of for this is that it only comes in a limited shade range. But if the available shades work for you, this stuff is FANTASTIC.

YES!!! This concealer (Fair Light) is wonderful, it covers dark circles, doesn't settle in fine lines & lasts all day. I will not be buying Bobbi Brown anymore. Drugstore price for a quality product. Thank you Physicians Formula!!!!

Now, this is what I've been looking for! My undereye circles have gotten so bad due to age, allergies, migraines, menopause's been a bummer because the rest of my skin looks pretty good. Other concealers have been too drying, patchy, gray or yellow. I was just about to head to the Lancome counter to try a tube of Effacernes when I read a review on this little tube of magic. This goes on smoothly and covers well, blends nicely. it does dry down pretty fast on me but might be more workable with a damp blending sponge. I think this will also work well to cover a few broken capillaries around my nose and as a shadow primer. Love.

Okay you guys. This is it! I finally found my ride or die concealer, I don't need to look any further. I definitely bought into all the hype of the Maybelline Age Rewind and Fit Me concealers, and don't get me wrong they are FABULOUS, but this is a concealer after my own heart.

As anyone with prominent dark circles will tell you, the struggle is REAL when selecting a concealer, because 90% aren't full coverage enough, and the ones that are can be very pasty, cakey and/or drying. I have tried TONS of drugstore concealers: NYX full coverage in the jar (not full coverage by any means, sorry NYX), Revlon PhotoReady (pretty good coverage but greasy), the two Maybellines mentioned in addition to the Better Skin (light coverage and creasy), Rimmel Match Perfection (great formula but coverage a bit too light still), and the Magic Lumi Touch which was a great highlighter but a bit too light in coverage.

This is the ONLY concealer that totally covered dark circles with one layer and didn't sheer out too much when I blended it. This is the ONLY truly full coverage concealer I've used that didn't get patchy or dry out my undereyes area. This blends well, but like any really intense concealer you will need to take your time buffing this into the skin, preferably with a damp beauty blender, because it is designed to really sit on your skin unlike more lightweight concealers that just melt over it.

Without setting this it WILL crease- but that's a given regardless of how good or expensive a concealer is- they ALL crease, maybe not all the time, and maybe not on every person, but if you have this problem recurrently it will behoove you to get in the habit of using a setting powder under your eyes. I'm currently using the ELF HD loose translucent powder and it works great and is very lightweight.

I bought this for about $9.50, which is on par with other drugstore concealers that do not offer this kind of coverage, so yes I am very pleased and feel I am getting my money's worth. The tube it comes in is simple and requires minimal effort to use. My kind of makeup.

If you are dealing with any kind of discoloration and are burnt out on concealers that are labeled full coverage but are 80% water- this is right up your alley and cannot be passed up! Ladies, the results are in and this concealer is the winner!

I love this concealer. I purchase it in Natural Light. The fact that I can get a great concealer at my local over the counter pharmacy/store instead of paying outrageous prices at a cosmetic counter makes me happy. This concealer works great on my "italian inherited under eye dark circles" and on my occasional blemishes. It lasts all day long as well. And a little goes a long way. You can use just a little for light coverage or apply more for layering more coverage. The small tube lasts me a long time. This is my go to concealer!

I'm giving this a very high rating, although I'm not repurchasing. I bought this concealer in the "darker" shade (natural/light), thinking I could blend it to make it workable for covering up dark under eye circles. This does not blend into my skin (which is darker than the concealer). So I can't use it, and I won't repurchase. But what really impressed me a lot was the powerful coverage! I have never seen anything cover like this (my experience is limited, but still). I swiped a small amount on my hand to test the color - my brown skin had a streak of what looked like caucasian skin on it - and it wasn't rubbing off or coming off with water, I needed to go get my makeup remover. It didn't look chalky like too light make up over my skin - it just looked like the skin itself was that color - this makes me think this would be a good tattoo concealer! Really serious coverage here, although it wasn't what I was looking for. You would need this to be your exact shade match though, imho - I personally don't see it blending very much.
