Most Helpful Positive Review Amazing Concealer w/ Great Coverage ❤❤
First Impressions -
Anyway, overall I would say I really like this concealer. I try to avoid things like this because of my sensitive/oily skin type, but by far this has been living up to my expectations.
First of all, it came in a very pretty and light-colored packaging and the item itself had a very cute design. It has the design of a medium-sized pencil and the main frame is glass with black writing on the front. Its very simple, but cute.
Inspecting & Applying -
Now, when opened, it doesn't have a strong nor offending smell. Its very faint, which is a go to when you are not looking for one laced with chemicals.
As for the concealer itself, it has a slight thicker texture than other concealers I have used. Yet, with the cushion tip, it made it quite easy to apply it despite this. It smoothed out very easily and blended very evenly.
Though, at first do to its color, I mostly used it around my eyes as a test. But, it passed very efficiently at hiding my dark circles and unevenness around my eyes. So, only after then, I used it as a full coverage concealer. In which, it did even better. It hid my dark spots and my blemishes quite effectively with an overall smooth finish. So, I absolutely love the option of both coverage options.
This product's NO.10, kinda reminds me of M·A·C Pro Longwear Concealer NC45, but comparably better in feel & quality.
It overall looked amazing. It also felt good on my skin and blended well with other makeup. I didn't have any allergic reactions when using and my oily skin didn't disrupt the concealer too much. It felt very lightweight on my skin and it did live up to its claims of not caking. It stayed on evenly and lasted me quite long throughout the day.
I have yet to try out its waterproof compatiblities, but it lives up well to its others. So, by far, I haven't had any issues, but this is a wonderful concealer I was very excited to try and I am very glad I did.
I received this product complimentary for test and review.
Most Helpful Critical Review Why is this so heavy??
I received this product for free from Benefit (through an app which I am not able to log into on my cell phone or tablet so I am writing it here on my PC) as part of a contest and I couldn't wait to test it out and wear it; however I found that some of the claims such as the waterproof were not so accurate.
I was easily able to wash the concealer off without any soap and while the application wasn't cakey to begin with the longer I wore it the heavier my face began to feel and the feeling that my skin wasn't getting any air was very noticeable.
I also found that this was not as full coverage as some other brands that I have used in the past. The coverage when blended out looked streaky / splotchy on my face against the foundations I tried it with. I am pretty sure it pulled up the drug store foundation when I tested it out.
The cushion tip seemed to hold onto the product well, but when swiped barely anything came off the applicator onto my skin.
Finally the shade range seems a little limited with only 12 shades to choose from, I am a little bummed out there.
The packaging is very cute as the unicarton is definately some aesthetically pleasing colors. I found the pencil eraser tip to be very adorable on the product itself and it was very light weight all around. It's small and easily tossed into a makeup bag or kit and taken when you're on the go.
For the price I would say it's a fair deal and I know not all shades have the same formula as different undertones and shades require different mixes of ingredients. But I am disappointed in the product after having waited so eagerly to test it out and wear it for the first time.
Again I did receive this product for free in a contest from Benefit through an app.

I do not understand all the great reviews on this item. It was so cakey and thick under my eyes! I will use it up as a regular concealer but will definitely not be buying again.
My new favorite concealor!
Natural Fashionista from Oceanside, CA
It's lightweight, but does the job of covering up my dark circles!
Monica from Fayetteville, New York
The product itself is pretty good, it stays put and is matte. The only downside is the cheap applicator! The wand is pretty small and flimsy, so sometimes getting it back in the bullet is challenging. I wish it had the same applicator as Tarte's shape tape and it would be perfect for me!
This is the best concealer I have ever gotten!
Ems from Orlando, FL
I got this product when it first came out from a recommendation of an Utla employee when looking for a new product. I got it and I love this. It's great coverage, doesn't look built up and lasts all day. I have gotten this a few times since my original purchase and as long as they keep making it I will keep buying it!
Rae from Lubbock, Texas
Love the coverage! A little goes a long way, besides covering my dark circles, it also provides coverage for baking!
Not worth it
Sarah from Chicago
Really disappointed with this product. It doesn't blend well and didn't cover my dark circles even though it claims to be full coverage. It started to look cakey after a couple hours too. I'm going to stick with my drug store elf concealer. I have two stars because the shade seemed to fit me really well.
I will but this again.
MT8 from Florence
Great coverage over my dark spots.
A tad drying but good coverage
Makeup Junkie from New York
I like using this product to cover acne scars on my chin. I would not recommend using this for an under eye concealer, as it does crease immediately.
The coverage is unbelievable!
LuvBeauty from MI
It has wonderful coverage but it's a little dry for under the eye. It's best to use an under eye moisture cream before use.
Karen from Wichita Falls, Tx
Love the applicator. Goes on smooth. Blends easily
Lucy from Knoxville
I did not enjoy this product. Maybe good for someone with dry skin.
Madalina from New York
It is crease less, , the consistency is light, and does not have fragrance.
Jess from San jose
Personally think it's better than the shapetape
I was really good

It covered my pimples really good

this stuff works great! love it
Better than Shape Tape
Murph3g from Chicago, IL
This concealer is the BEST. It is lightweight still with great coverage, blends like a dream, and doesn't move all day. So much better than Shape Tape IMO. My only critique is that the shade range could be better.
Best ever coverage
Kris from Lynnwood, wa
The best light weight coverage that doesn't cake on!!!
Worth the hype!
MrsPineapples from Ca
I was afraid to try something so hyped after being burned by shape tape, but this concealer is amazing. It's not thick and cakey like shape tape is. I have creasy undereyes so I set it with powder and by 7-8 hours I get small creasing but I'm able to pat it out with my finger so I don't mind. You don't need much to get full coverage. If you like age rewind but need more coverage this is a good option
Naomipa9 from Melbourne, FL
This concealer didn't do anything super special compared to other concealers I have tried. It does kind of settle into your fine lines throughout the day.
Shay from Philadelphia
Shade 3 works so well on my neutral, light olive skin while giving it a vibrant glow. Highly pigmented — you only need a couple dots of this stuff ladies! Very hydrating too my under eyes love this stuff.
Worth the money
Hutch from Virginia
I love this concealer. So glad I decided to purchase it. Super full coverage and a little goes a long way. I love that it feels light on your skin but still gives you a good coverage.
Some people are having issues with creasing. I did not but I typically use just enough concealer to cover the dark circles and that it. Nothing too crazy. It lasted all day. Definitely recommend.
Nicolename from Oregon
I'm really quite impressed by this concealer. I have been on the hunt for many many months for the right product. My skin is dry combination, fairly sensitive, and I have rosy notes to my skin— but I'm not especially fair, I lean more towards the light range. I have issues with concealers drying out my skin or not matching my skin tone. (Like shape tape, ugh, not for me). I like light to medium coverage with a natural finish. I got the 2.5. It's a little bit lighter than I'd prefer but just a little bit. A teeny tiny bit goes a very long way. I used a minuscule dab under each eye then spread it with a fine concealer brush and evened and blended with a blending brush. When I washed my face after a full day, I was amazing that it hadn't spread, didn't cake, and wasn't on my glasses at all. I highly recommend giving this a try. Just don't used too much!
I was un impressed
Dy from Boston
I was unimpressed with the shade range , it's just a few variations of the sand tone. The darkest concealer was still a very fair color. I was also unimpressed by the quality of the product . Will be returning
Rachael from Tennessee
I had high hopes for this concealer but it definitely caked and highlights every line under your eyes even with primer. I went back to my tried & true Lancôme Teint Idole Ultra Wear concealer. Best full coverage concealer I've tried.
Sonja from Oklahoma
This concealer is amazing! It's not cakey AT ALL like the other reviews say. You just need a little bit and set it. I get zero creasing with this. Definitely buying more when it goes on sale.
