things to rave about
  • Doesn't Emphasize Fine Lines: "It's very creamy and hydrating, which means it doesn't emphasize fine lines and give you that unattractive crepey look. " by blog_antagonist
  • Multi-Purpose: "The coverage is great; it's light enough to veil your dark circles but still opaque enough to hide your most stubborn acne scars. I use it to cover my dark circles and brighten my eyes and to cover any darkness around my nose and mouth." by susjs
  • Yellow Toned: "The colour is a touch yellow which means it's effective at disguising the bluish colour under my eyes." by missburlington
  • Long-Lasting: "I'm impressed with the longevity - after ten hours of wear it hadn't rubbed off, shifted or creased. I wear glasses, so I'm used to concealer rubbing off on the nose pads - this one doesn't! " by belle169
  • Natural-Looking: "This concealer has the most natural, "non-makeupey" finish of any I've ever tried. It barely creases at all, and stays looking slightly luminescent all day. I love it. I apply it over an eye gel, and set it with the tiniest amount of powder, and it stays all day with minimal fading." by Tashina
  • Non-Drying: "I had a massive popped pimple mess on my face at my birthday dinner and this conceleaed it perfectly without making it dry or peely. " by anapanics
  • Brightening: "It matches my skin tone PERFECTLY and provides just the right amount of coverage while giving a gorgeous finish to my skin. I use it under my eyes to brighten the area and also as a sort of highlight along my cheekbones, chin, bridge of the nose, and above my brows. In a pinch I've also used it all over on areas that need a bit of brightening or coverage and set with a powder - it blends seamlessly and looks 100% natural! " by snarkywench
  • Adapts to Skin Tone: "It does strangely enough adapt to my skin/foundation tone. I bought Ivory (the lightest shade) and it comes out of the tube fairly light, but once I've dabbed it under my eyes there is no difference in colour to my foundation once dry." by SparkleBunny38
things to rant about
  • Uncontrollable Packaging: "The "Touche Eclat" type brush combined with a squeezy tube is a pain....far too much came out when I squeezed it the first time to get it going and it is hard to squeeze out just the amount you need. I like to put this on the back of my hand and use a better brush to apply - it gives me more control but also, I haven't been able to avoid squeezing out too much of this so even if I wanted to use the brush tip, I think I'd end up with WAAAAY too much product under my eyes." by mariella99
is it for you?
Want a creamy, hydrating concealer that looks natural and doesn't emphasize fine lines 
 Have dry, peeling skin
 Desire a subtle highlighter for cheekbones, bridge of nose, cupids bow, etc
 Need a multi-purpose concealer that brightens, veils under eye circles, and conceals skin discolorations/blemishes


 Dislike doe-foot applicators that can be unsanitary and messy
