Most Helpful Positive Review I have mixed feelings
After heavily hydrating my under eye area, I dab two light dots under one eye and quickly blend before it sets. I learned to use the side rather than the tip of the applicator to control the amount of product. I use a dampened makeup sponge to quickly smooth the product under the full area. Too much product enhanced every tiny invisible line in that area and dried out the entire area even more.
I like that this sets and the color works for my face. I do not like the initial learning curve for using it on my face. I will not be returning this. I'd rather use it up, now that I have a "works for my face" technique. I was considering the Hydrating Camo concealer after the very first application of this one, but I still have mixed feelings on this one. It will not work on my nose and only somewhat on my redness. It readily settles into my large pores on my nose.
I initially chose this style of applicator because it was not a sponge tip that could get gross before the product was used completely.
Would I suggest this to friends? Yes, but only with many explanations.
Will I by this again? undecided.
Most Helpful Critical Review Very drying
I have a lot of experience with high coverage concealers, such as Tarte Shape Tape and L'Oreals new full wear concealer. Elf's camo is a similar high coverage concealer but i didn't find it to be as flawless. The concealer is far more dry than L'Oreals and slightly more than shape tape. Rather than just setting down it goes to a very powdery place. My big problem with this concealer lies in it picking up on itself and being hard to apply. This morning I applied the concealer meticulously ,as it kept moving around and coming off of areas, and baked it lightly with a powder I am familiar with. I wiped away the powder lightly with a brush and it left holes in my makeup where the camo concealer was gone. I tried to reapply the concealer with a precision brush and it would not stick to my skin for the life of me. I repeated these processes for about 20 minutes and ended up being a little late to work as I just decided to take off all my makeup and reapply a tinted moisturizer and different concealer. The other times I had used this concealer i was a little disappointed in its application but not to this extent. I have combo skin and would recommend this to anybody who doesn't have super oily skin. Its ok to try out if you are curious but I'd recommend l'oreals over this any day.

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
Would not purchase again
Vicki from Dayton
For highlighting and concealing
Amazing! Definitely a dupe for Shape Tape
Natasha R from WV
Absolutely love this!!! I've used Shape Tape and Bye Bye Under eyes for years, but heard this was a dupe for Shape Tape. It absolutely is. The coverage is great and doesn't settle into my fine lines around and under my eyes. It does get dry or cakey!
Full coverage and awful for dry skin
MJ from Los Angeles
I picked this up by mistake not realizing there was a hydrating version. This is definitely a dupe for shape tape and I hate shape tape; In its defense, this is very much full coverage and it's MATTE MATTE MATTE. It sucked all the moisture out of my well prepped under eye area. I was left with a cracked, creasy mess. It was awful. That said, if you're oily or can handle matte products, this is seriously good coverage.
DO NOT BUY IF YOU HAVE DRY SKIN!!!
elf from North Carolina
this product clumps on your face and doesn't do the job personally for me.
I wouldn't buy again
Jenna from Maine
I don't recommend using this product long term. I love elf but this concealer is not it. It drys extremely fast and you need to do maybe three layers to get dark circles gone. It creases extremely easily and looks weird/clumpy when you put setting powder over it.
Don't buy if you have dry skin
That one Abg from Sac
If you have dry skin. Girl THIS IS NOT YOUR BESTFRIEND. It's gonna dry out, not blend, oxidize to a orangy pinky color. No manches. Don't go out looking like a mess. If yk this won't work out for you, don't set yourself up for failure!
Super dry and oxidizes fast
Jessica from Texas
Within minutes of applying it it dries, cakes, and creases. I can't use it to clean up eye makeup around my eyes bc it oxidizes as well as drying out my skin.
Great coverage; hydrate before
Breanna from Dallas
Really love this product and price point. I personally think the coverage is better than Shape Tape, however the color range is VERY limited so i do have to buy two to match my skin tone
I HAVE OILY SKIN AND ITS DRYING AND HARD TO BLEND
Kaylee56 from Phoenix AZ
This concealer only works with a primer and you can't let it sit long otherwise it won't blend. I even tried to use this concealer to clean up my eyebrows and it just looks so drying and cakey. I never had this problem I been using the maybelline fit me concealer and it's more easier to blend out and not drying. And I have oily skin
Amazing product and amazing price
AlejandraE from New york
If you have dark circles under your eyes the product will cover them! I'm very happy with this! And the price was the best part.
So unbelievably dry
cbrosh from PA
Holy cow, I know this is described as matte and fast drying, but this stuff dries down just about immediately. I had a hard time blending it out smoothly because by the time I put the concealer down and picked up a brush, it was starting to set. I had to work at it to get a smooth application. And once it was in place it looked super dry. I do appreciate that they have a shade light enough for me, not all drugstore brands do. But I wish I had tried the hydrating version of this instead.
I like it
Becky from Mississippi
It's a but hard to blend, but a better alternative for the shape tape.
Ava from Maryland
this concealer is so good. It has such good coverage and its so cheap! elf just keeps getting better and better.
I totally recommend this product
Violet from Brownville, TX
I love this product. It is smooth, long lasting, not oily at all.
Hard to apply and made eyes itchy
A.D. from Glendale, AZ
I normally like elf products, but this was terrible. I bought the white concealer to use as an eyeshadow base, but it was very watery, hard to blend, and did not stay on. Whenever I tried to blend it out with a brush, it was as if i had just taken it directly out of the bottle and made a mess everywhere. It dried very quickly and looked like flaky White-Out. It also made my eyes itchy.
Lilly from Cerritos
Love this concealer stays on and easy to blend will purchase again
Lasts all day and covers
Courtney from Massachusetts
From my pregnancy, I have HORRIBLE hormonal acne, and makeup has been making it look even worse, showing every little bump. I started to use just a little bit of this concealer and nothing else, and it changed everything. It covers amazing, camouflages the texture and literally lasts all day long. I typically have very oily skin and makeup doesn't last long, but this stuff has been my go-to life saver throughout this entire pregnancy.
Not worth it
XT from St. Paul, Minnesota
Love the coverage but hard to blend out.
Lady of the Loft from Columbus, Ohio
A little goes a long way with this concealer! It's very thick so I use it sparingly but the coverage is amazing! This little tube is going to last me a long time but I would highly recommend it!! You can tell it's more for a full coverage but like I said, I use it sparingly. Also, I'm Indian so am darker skinned and it seems they have a shade for everyone.
anna from paradise
love this concealer, full coverage & amazing especially for the price! blends out GREAT!
Very drying under my eyes
Mads from OoooooOOoOoOOooooooO
It will probably be better for oily skin
