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.

Full coverage and not as drying as my high end concealer! I have found that tapping it on with my fingers works better for me rather than trying to apply it with a sponge or concealer brush.

I didn't know a concealer could be so good until I met her. I have tried shape tape and a few others and honestly this is my favorite. Gives a flawless finish.

I've been using covergirl concealer for years. I'm 35 and have a few hyperpigmentation spots. I wanted to find something that would cover those spots and my under eyes. This stuff covers! I started with more than I needed based on how I used to apply covergirl concealer. You don't need a lot of this product. It spreads so well and covers wonderfully.

I use it under my eyes and on my chin
Shape Tape dupe!
Nicole from USA
This concealer is the best! I can wear this all day and it still looks beautiful by the end of the day!
Burned liked nothing else
Loveformakeup from Little Rock, AR
I needed a new concealer and I had heard about this one. I have the oiliest skin and thought I could use this even though some reviews said it was dry, I thought it would be okay for my skin type. I used it for about a week and my eyelids/the area around my eye got so dry and flakey, broke out, and even started burning. I had to go without makeup for a couple days after using this and still experience burning when I am using different makeup or washing my face around my eyes. I've never had eczema, skin sensitivity, or anything like that. I am not sure what is in this concealer but my skin HATES it.
Lives up to the hype

Imo. Great concealer for oily skin. Didn't break up. Didn't sit in fine lines. Really happy with this purchase.
Tarte face tape is a thing of the past
Make up rookie from Rosenberg, tx
I literally just take it out and dab a little under my eyes and on any blemishes and don't have to refill or dip back in for more and it evens out and looks great.
best drugstore concealer!
Pradamarf from Oklahoma
This is the best concealer that you will find in the drugstore! its long wearing, doesn't get oily and is under $10!!!! Highly recommend if you like a full coverage product
Denise867 from United States
Has good coverage. Although make sure your beauty blender is not that wet because this will leave you with patches. Don't recommend for people with dry skin as this does dry really quickly
I would buy this
Yami from Islip
I love this concealer ever since i tried it goid price good finish and it just works good for me 🥰
Such a Disappointment
RayRay from Houston, Tx
I bought into the hype thinking it would be my holy grail concealer only to be left disappointed. At first, even if it's hard to blend, i loved the full coverage it gave me. But it only lasted about 2- 3 hours for me before it faded and i had to reapply about 3 times a day because it kept fading in me. i have oily skin so i need a concealer to last me at least 8 hours and this was such a disappointment.
Dries too fast. Doesn't blend easily.
Becca from Pgh, PA
I heard positive reviews & it's affordable, but I didn't realize that I didn't order the hydrating version. I ordered the matte one & I'm a low maintenance, natural makeup girl. Not my vibe.
the worst concealer I've ever tried
quin from texas
The fact that this has 4 stars baffles me because reading the reviews makes me realize I'm not the only one who hates this. I got this concealer my senior year, and I would put it under my eyes and on blemishes. It looked incredibly yellow and dry and smeared all over and made my skin look gross and accentuated my pores (which normally aren't bad at all). I just thought it was the shade or my technique, so I tried again recently. This concealer doesn't work for any skin type. I have a few dry patches I would try to cover up and it made the texture gross. I put it on my pimples and there was so coverage. I put it under my eyes and it creased, made my pores huge, gave me little to no coverage and smeared even after I baked with powder. It dries too fast, so I tried to wet it and even work in sections, but it's impossible to blend even with my primer and beauty sponge still wet. I have some oily patches on my skin sometimes and it slipped right off. I even tried using it as an eyeshadow base and it made my shadows patchy. My sister and my mom borrowed my concealer and hated it. I honestly threw it away tonight because no one would take it. No matter what kind of skin you have, what you need to cover up, or what you need it to do, it does not work. This is just an even worse version of Tarte Shape Tape.
A dupe for the tarte shape tape concealer
em from Maine
Just like the shape tape concealer but a lot cheaper, i liked the tube and wand, but just hard to blend out for my eyebrows when it dries a little.
Zyra from New Jersey
I love it, great for price , ton of product, amazing packaging and works just as well as the Two Faced Shape Tape Concealer!
Lydia from shasta lake, ca
this is FULL coverage honey!! it is dry and you do have to work fast, but once you get the hang of it its great! it dries down to a powder finish. a little bit goes a LONG way.. I am very fair and I use fair warm...its like white concealer. but I love a brightening under eye.
Don't personally recommend
Lyss from C
If you have dry under eyes I don't recommend this product. I use under eye moisturizer and this concealer still makes it look dry and cakey. It does have good coverage but it also breaks up throughout the day.
Dani from Bay Area, CA
I did not expect this to be as good as it is, but my expectations were exceeded and then some. I've always been a foundation/concealer snob and usually always stick to mid-high end/luxury products for that category but I picked this up over the weekend and I'm hooked! It's better than shape tape, benefit cakeless, Nars, Chanel, etc. only thing is that once you apply it you must blend it out ASAP, so if you highlight the whole face with concealer (kardashian/IG style) I'd apply one section at a time while blending it out.
Was good, but not a shape tape dupe
Makeupmakeup from WA
Was trying this as an inexpensive tarts shape tape dupe, and it looked close when first applied although the color was very light. I gave it a try. It applied nicely but as I came into daylight I could tell it wasn't even close. You could still see my dark circles, I like a thick coverage under eye. It was drying, nothing horrid, just nothing I experience with shape tape. It also wore off through the day and didn't keep my acne covered. So this is a no for me. I'll stick to my shape tape.
MK from DC
This concealer somehow managed to make my oily skin into a dry, creasing desert. I do not recommend.
WRETCHED AWFUL FOR DRY SKIN
DRY TERRIBLE COVERAGE AND AWFUL COLOR from OKC
I have yellow toned fair skin and when I received the fair warm color, it was WHITE. Putting this on I looked like a ghost! I have super dry skin and this stuck to my skin in patches. It looked awful! It creased so badly even after baking. The only good think about this was the coverage! Definitely would not recommend this to people with dry skin or recommend this for under eye coverage at all. Don't order online either, go to the store and find the one that works for your skin tone because the online guide was way off!!
It's nice but creases
Lil from Virginia
It's a good concealer but it can crease and dry down
Maria from Los Angeles
Sooo dry, I really wanted to like it but it doesn't even spread its so dry
Dry & hard to blend
frankensteinslemonade from Texas
Dried extremely fast that you barely have the chance to blend it. When you do get it to start blending, you'll have used a lot of force that it's rubbing off. Maybe someone can make it work but this just wasn't it for me. Either very splotchy from trying to blend it or super cakey from where it couldn't
