Most Helpful Positive Review Lasting; neutral colors
I received a little postcard of several peel off foil samples to try of Estée Lauder's new Double Wear Radiant Concealer. My skin tone falls under the light category so I was only able to sample 2 of the colors and I actually ended up blending both of them to get my perfect color. What I liked most about this is concealer is that it did not fade throughout the day. I put it on either side of nose to fade my broken capillaries and also the faint purplish areas under my eyes. It also wasn't as drying as some of the other concealers I've used by EL. Lastly, the one thing that keeps me returning to EL over and over is their color selection for my neutral colored skin. It is both yellow and pink and I have yet to find anyone else that offers so many variations in a makeup that actually lasts more than a couple of hours.
Most Helpful Critical Review Awful
I went to stock up on my EL Double Wear Stay-in-Place Flawless Wear Concealer, I showed the retail associate my used concealer tube to make sure that she pulled the correct color. The box looked the same but when I pulled the tube out a few days later, it was wider, and the wand was larger. The color still said 1C light, which is what I always use. I started applying the concealer and it was at least three shades darker than usual. At this point I was out of my old one but couldn't wear the much darker shade. I took it back to the retailer and explained to them that I am not sure what happened because the color says the same, but it is much darker. I handed the associate my tube of concealer for comparison (again), she then provides me with a new color of concealer that is a closer match. Color code 1N Light is what she picked. After applying the concealer for the first time, I knew something was different. This was not the classic concealer that I am used to. After checking online, I was relieved that it wasn't a formula remake and Estee Lauder still provides their classic "Flawless" concealer. Turns out, the associates at the retail store where I went were not aware that Estee Lauder now has a new Double Wear "Radiant" Concealer. I wore the Radiant concealer for a few days because I was completely out, and I absolutely hated it. My mom and my oldest sister have been wearing the Double Wear Stay-in-Place Flawless Wear Concealer since I can remember, nothing has ever compared to it. This new Radiant concealer has awful coverage, creased under my eyes, looked scaly on my skin, and rubbed off easily. I use oil absorbing blot sheets during the day and my Flawless concealer never comes off on them, but the Radiant concealer did. My sister recently bought some and when she checked the box, it was the also the incorrect new Radiant concealer. Maybe the Radiant line should have its own color codes or a different colored box to avoid confusion or incorrect purchases.

This is the first concealer I've tried that lasts all day, feels comfortable, and doesn't crease.
I would not buy this product again.

Sad to hear that Ulta no longer carries the Stay in Place concealer in the store.

I want to love it. It leaves creases and inhanse my fine lines. its NOT hydrating like IT cosmetic concealer.
if you have fine lines do not use. also not very good coverage.
Where has this been all my life?
BellaKetchup from Connecticut
I'm 35 always had dark circles
And definitely have some fine lines. This not only brightens and conceals, but it doesn't even need powder for setting which has never been the case with any concealer I've ever used. You don't need very much a little goes a long way and it blends like a dream.
Natural, But Better
GVD from TX
Natural looking, but better. Thin formula with good coverage. Not drying. Nice for light makeup days.

Use this in my under eye area and love it.
MIA_60 from NY
Was hesitant to try something new, but I'm so glad that I did. A little goes a long way and the stay-in-place coverage is incredible! I use it under my eyes and also on areas that need extra coverage. It literally lasts all day, even through humidity and sweat. It also doesn't settle in my lines. The radiant finish isn't shiny at all, it's just not flat/matte so it looks healthier and more natural.

The best concealer out there. Try others and always come back to this one.
Not sure I like this anymore...
Laurel from Rockville Centre, NY
When I first purchased it I really liked it...lately not liking it so much. I don't understand why the wand/tip is so large as you don't need so much..I don't get it?? And I don't see the radiance either, like some other reviewers said.
ChikaJ from Montgomery, AL
It's easy to blend and no cakey. I liked it a lot.
mjp from columbus ohio
Dislike this concealer. It doesn't blend well. Dry and not radiant at all. And I used an eye cream before applying the concealer.
Begr8t from Bronx, NY
Perfect match, nice finish, no crease, lasted all day long. Didn't have to wear make up underneath it. Looked great in pictures. It didn't look like I was wearing heavy makeup.
Tamara from Palm Bay, FL
I tried out the samples and I found one that best fits me and I came back on to the website got with a beauty consultant and found a foundation that would match and concealer and I purchase my foundation and concealer
Nice and creamy
Ggracebasa from Hayward, CA
Blendable coverage and creamy. It worked well with my foundation I use a fenty foundation and it did not separate. Wore well throughout the day.
It worked, but...
Kai from Southgate, KY
It works how it's meant to work, covering dark circles, but the texture feel is like white or halfway dried glue. Felt uncomfortable on the skin and was sticky putting on. Maybe that's why it covers? Either way, not buying this.
All I use for coverage!
Bec from Plano, TX
Great for people with dry skin. I just use this concealer without anything on top since I I the natural look. By itself it keeps your skin with the glowy look you have after using moisturizer, without feeling too sheer or oily. Great coverage, and you only need a little bit on your fingertip to apply to all areas of the face where you want it.
Miss Frenchee from Cathedral City, CA
For reference, I am 36, live in the desert, and have oily skin. I was so excited to try this concealer, having had horrible luck with all other concealers that I had tried, but excellent results from the Double Wear Light foundation. I do not have dark circles, bags, or intense discoloration beneath my eyes, but like the brightness that a concealer can give. I immediately noticed that no matter how I applied the concealer (using my mini Beauty Blenders, dabbing with my fingers, etc.) that it didn't seem to build--it simply seemed to wipe off. It didn't build in opacity, and even though it wasn't giving me a layer that could give me the brightness that I wanted, it managed to look cakey. It felt like such a waste, especially since I only used it a few times before I had to call it quits and return it. In all honesty, I have used Maybelline concealers that have worked far better. Such a shame.

Simply put , it was the correct shade anand perfect product to hide all of my huge pores and old acne scares from my teen years, leaving my skin smooth and flawless looking
Hydrating, full coverage, radiant, too dark
Melting in Texas from Austin, Texas
I wear 2W2 Rattan in Doublewear. I ordered online and thought that 2W in this radiant concealer would be a match. It is too dark, almost orange under my eyes. But I wanted to test the formula. This is the creamiest and best concealer from Estee Lauder for my mature eyes. Under my right eye, I have one really deep wrinkle and this settled very lightly into that wrinkle. This is very radiant concealer. I prefer a bit more matte, but really blends well and looks great under the eyes.
May we have this formula in a foundation please?
Jules from San Francisco CA
Heaven on earth!!! I have recently started a new skincare regimen and decided to give my foundation a break while keeping up my appearance with concealer. I have my regular double wear concealer that is way too matte for this dry winter so I got this concealer. Take the time to find your match in this concealer as it is amazing when you get it right. I am impressed by how it blends perfectly into my skin. It lasts the whole day and does not transfer. I have recently used it as an all-over face concealer and no one could tell I had anything on.
Anu from North Arlington, NJ
Its amazing concealer. and its full coverage, and its not kaki at all. Love it!
A. Maudlin from Detroit, Michigan
Not as dense or heavy as Tart or Becca. Full coverage, brightens, and doesn't sink into wrinkles. Not sticky or cakey. Much better alternative to other concealers. Easy to apply. A little goes a long way.
Worked for me.
Ana from FL
I have tried Tarte Shape Tape and the ELDW Stay In Place Flawless concealer and I prefer this one. It does not have a noticeable scent like Tarte. It is a thicker formula and a little goes a long way and I didn't use setting powder. This concelaer runs a little darker than the Flawless concealer. I wear the shade 3w2 in the Stay In Place Foundation and glad I bought the shade 2W.
