Most Helpful Positive Review Good color range for fair skin
I've struggled with finding an elf concealer that is fair enough to use under my eyes, so I bought the lightest warm shade in the collection. To my surprise, it was significantly lighter than the lightest shade of the HD Lifting Concealer! I ended up loving the formula, so I repurchased the camo concealer in the shade medium peach, which is a much better match. I hope these swatches are useful...for reference, I am shade 110 porcelain in Maybelline smooth and dewy foundation and Shell Ivory in the Wet 'n Wild photofocus foundation.
Most Helpful Critical Review it covers, it blends, it lasts BUT...
I was SO excited to try this concealer as it seems to be all the rage on the YT beauty channels. And YES...it covers/ conceals, it IS blendable (if you work SUPER fast as it is very fast setting), it DOES last (I have not tried the full 16 hours, but last longer than some others I have tried) BUT...it also enhances every.single. fine line. under my eyes. EVERY one, even the ones I didn't know I had until I used this product.
My skin is normal and well hydrated. No other concealer I have used has placed a spotlight on my fine lines like this does.
What I have tried (using only 2 little dots, not the entire applicator fill)
*Using alone over my normal hydration
*Adding extra hydration
*Adding hydration TO the concealer
*Using my finger
*Using a concealer brush
*Using a flat foundation brush
*Using a Beauty Blender
Love SO many of the E.L.F. products, but for this one I am not a fan.

i would recommend it if you just wear make up every once in a while but i would suggest get it in a shade a little darker than your own skin tone
I will definitely be repurchasing this product!

This concealer really surprised me. It provides full coverage but the product is very lightweight on the skin. This is not the kind of concealer you can leave on your face to warm the product and then blend it, I find it best to blend out with a damp beauty blender right away before the concealer dries.
packaging is a disaster
Sara from Fairfield, CT
I have mixed opinions about this product. I did enjoy it at first even though I had to blend it right away with a damp sponge before it dried. Although it is drying, I don't need to set it with powder since the finish is a little powdery to begin with. However, I literally cannot use this product anymore due to the MESS it creates. When you put the wand back in to close it, concealer comes out of the top and gets all over. No matter how many times I've wiped it, its just a disaster. I have concealer on my vanity and in my makeup bag and it's so hard to get off. For this reason, I just can't use it anymore I hate the mess I don't have time to be wiping concealer off of everything!
So dry that it's nearly unusable
cbrosh from Pennsylvania
This concealer is so dry I can barely get it to blend into the skin. It ends up being patchy if I'm not careful how I apply it. I've never used anything this dry before.
Addyson from Illinois
Love it! Only thing is that it dries quicker than other brands I've tried, but that's no problem
Tati from Oxnard, CA
it's not too bad I don't really have any complaints besides it does dry really fast so you need to be quick to blend it after you apply it. i wouldn't say it's terrible, just not my preference cause I like to let my concealer sit for a bit before I blend.
Laura from la
It's so quick drying and splotchy. The coverage is okay. Smells weird. Recommend the L'oréal Infalliable full wear it's like this one but 100x better. Again you get what you pay for.
L from Houston
This concealer as FLAWLESS coverage but it does dry really fast :( if I put it under my eyes and spit conceal at the same time it usually dries in some spots and leaves me looking patchy. HOWEVER, it does have amazing coverage and does look flawless if blended out in a short amount of time!
Erin from Pennsylvania
Love the product! I bought a color that matches my skin tone as I only use it to cover blemishes and under my eyes and it works so well. This is an elf product I will buy forever!

Dont have to use very much to get the coverage you need. Glides on smooth and doesnt cake up
Krc from Augusta Maine
The best concealer I have ever used. As good as/if not better than shape tape
I want to buy again

Buy a darker shade than your own
Birdie from Texas
Not too much coverage but ok just get shade darker if u buy online because they are pretty light
My Go-To Concealer
PeaceBang from Boston Area
After I apply eye cream and allow that to set, I swipe this on under my eyes and in the contour brightening zone. I buff it out with a kabuki brush. It is a thick product so you have to get in there fast with blending but it STAYS.
compares to shape-tape
ruby from Bakersfield,CA
i love this product but you need to work quickly because of how fast it dries.
very full coverage!
R from Washington
Overall I really love this product! It's full coverage, I got the true white color to use as a base for my eyeshadow and it makes the colors so vibrant and stay much longer! My two issues with this are kinda one in the same though, it dries down VERY fast, I have dry skin so if I use it anywhere on my face that isn't my eyes it starts to get a weird texture and pill up at the edges almost. So next time I'll probably get the hydrating version :) since it dries down so fast you definitely wanna blend it as fast as possible
Color selection is confuseing
Jaia from NY
I have a light shade that is wayy too light and a medium shade that is too dark.... their light seems fair
Work fast or else
MT from Napa, CA
If you don't work fast with this concealer, it will legit look like a nightmare.
Best on a budget
T2k from Fresno, ca
I have a lot of hyperpigmentation due to acne scars and haven't ever really used concealers but lately they've been really showing through my foundation. I decided to give this a try while I learn how to properly conceal and so far it's been exactly what I need to learn without breaking the bank.
Settled way too fast.
nekokneecaps from North Las Vegas
I never really had a problem with this elf, but honestly this concealer is not it. I loved it cause the shade fits my skin tone, but the fact that I would put it on and grabbed my beauty blender, it would already try to set before I could blend it out. Just left me with loads of streaks on my face :/
Wa wa wee wa! This stuff is awesome
Amy from Brooklyn, NY
Wow! What a great concealer at a total steal of a price! Nice coverage and it's also hydrating (or at least it seems to be).
Mary from West Chicago IL
I am someone who is insecure about my acne so when I saw an affordable full coverage concealer I wanted to try it. They were not kidding when they say full coverage. And being that I'm very pale it's hard to find something that will brighten as well but this did that too!

Such a good Dupe!
Danny from Douglasville, Ga
This is such a good dupe for the Tarte Shape tape concealer! It's always amazing and works great with my oily skin
