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 tried this for a few days but it was still cakey, flaky, and creased. I returned it very disappointed.
M from westfield
I'm very picky about concealer and I have really dark red prominent eye circles. I love this concealer! I only tried one high end concealer and hated it (too faced...so creasy) until I bought the pot version of this one and loved it. I ran out of that so decided to try this version and its awesome. I have wrinkles under my eyes too and this doesn't crease. And it DOESN'T OXIDIZE!! so awesome, even without setting spray but I do use powder. totally love it, no oxidation, no creases, best coverage, stay all day. its a little heavy for 7 days a week but I just be mindful and use it everyday for work, will be my holy grail from now on!
Not like the original

I'm definitely repurchashing!
Dominique from Florida
I use this for under my eyes and sometimes blemishes and it does the job flawlessly and its my go to! So glad I tried it and won't be going back to anything else for a long time!
Jamie89 from PA
This is basically the same as Tarte shape tape only a little less drying (still kind of drying, but still better than the tarte garbage) a few bucks cheaper and none of that headache inducing perfumey odor.
Not for me!
Hohoho from Baltimore, Maryland
I tried for under eye coverage. It was horrible. Cute packaging though
Georgia Girl from Georgia
This concealer is amazing! I can really layer it without it getting cakey. I was obsessed with Tarte Shape Tape for years, but this concealer is definitely my favorite now.
love as much as shape tape!
. from Georgia
works perfectly for my dark circles without drying my skin!
Works pretty good
Caprine from Elkin, NC
To cover redness. It does well, but takes a fair amount of blending.
Excellent cover up
Lucywii from Kokomo, IN
This product does not dry my skin.
Love this concealer!
Emily from North Attleboro, MA
This concealer is full coverage and, after trying it for the first time, I really enjoy it! The only thing is because the doe foot applicator is big and the container is small, it is a little difficult to take the wand out and I find myself having to forcefully take it out LOL! I got a little on my pants the first time i used it because it flew out of the container.
Regardless, the formula is fabulous, just make sure you're patient with the packaging!
Not enough color options
Lilbunny from Velva ND
Horrible color options however smells good and stays on like glue cute packaging
Just OK for me
CKK from FL
I really wanted to like this, but even though it does not cake like it says, it went into all the fine lines around my eyes. Not a pretty look. I did not like it and returned it. Not to say that it's not a good product, it just was not for me.
Tkay from La
Has a thin consistency and doesn't feel heavy under the eyes. I love it and have no complaints.
Payton from .
I got this concealer on sale so I wanted to try it and I'm so glad I did the only thing I don't like is the creasing but besides that the coverage is so full coverage if you like the tarte shape tape and want to save a couple of dollars get this they are like the same!
Heather from Morganton, NC
Great concealer. Use a primer underneath if you have deep wrinkles (like me). Helps any makeup resist settling
U from Wi
Gives the same if not better coverage than Tartes Shape Tape, and thats saying alot for me! I have harsh undereye colouring and its sooooo good!
Didn't work for me :(
Sam from Las Vegas, NV
I really wanted to like this concealer especially since it has so many good reviews. I tried it and ended up really not liking it....it's super drying and oxidizes like crazy. Definitely returning.
Smooth blend NEW FAVE
T Sands from Oahu, HI
Honestly the best concealer I have. It's a bit pricey for the packaging but my makeup ends up looking flawless so you can say it's worth the price!
I wanted to love this.
Yaa from North Carolina
This isn't really the worst I've used. It was ok, a bit thick and hard to blend. Then today for some reason I got a chemical burn on my face. This was the only product on that area other than my primer which I use with no issues. This sucks that I had a reaction to it on my face of all places but it happens, not every brand is for everyone. But just be careful if you have sensitive skin.
TLM from PA
Covers well and can be layered for more coverage
Hbj from NC
I have dry skin, this can sometimes looks good , sometimes just look so bad. After multiple attempts, I finally give up, not recommend for dry skin.
Sometimes what works great for youtubers does not really work for me.
Trying too hard to be Shape Tape
Shan from Virginia
The coverage of this concealer is fine but not fantastic (granted, I have SUPER dark under-eye circles, so it's hard to find anything that completely covers them). However, it gets way too cakey and it creases like crazy. It is also extremely drying, even on my oily skin. I think it's supposed to be a dupe for Shape Tape, but honestly, I'll just spend the extra $5 and go with Tarte. Also noticed that it breaks me out if I use it to spot-cover. Won't repurchase.
