things to rave about
  • Multi-Purpose: "I use the olive green-toned square to hide redness and blemishes, the darker, peachier square for under eye circles (looks superbly natural), and the lighter square over anything else since it matches my skin tone." by songy67
  • Creamy But Not Creasy: "Just the right creaminess that they can stretch and move with the skin and not cake or crease. " by natabo
  • Custom Blend: "I can honestly say I really like this product for the fact that you can blend the concealers to create your custom shade look." by jeansbeansxo
  • Laura Mercier Dupe "This concealer takes the same concept of Laura Mercier's secret camouflage with different colors that can be mixed together to get the perfect concealing color, but I find it much easier to and use for touch-ups." by Dee652
  • Long-Lasting: "Because this concealer is AMAZING! I had a long crying session the other day, and when I looked in the mirror, the concealer was STILL THERE! Yep, it looked exactly the same. Amazing. " by jules0305
  • Setting Powder: "And there is a light powder to help hold it all into place. Which I love because whenever I would put on concealer under my eyes I was always trying to find the right powder to help set it and it was so hard to find the right color. This one matches perfectly!" by starrydreams
things to rant about
  • Heavy: "As soon as I put this on it make my skin in the under eye area look SO dry.. The few times I have worn it, it felt very heavy and it didn't feel natural." by StephR
  • Drying: "The downside for me was these are far too drying for an undereye concealer; no matter how much eye cream I glopped on underneath or which brush I tried, [or fingers] this went on a bit thicker and dryer than my cream-based concealers and emphasized every fine line. Setting with the powder only intensified that effect." by susjs
