Most Helpful Positive Review Wow, new holy grail concealer
Umm Cliniques been coming in hard lately with every launch. I'm a big fan of their skincare, and honestly their makeup is just as amazing. This concealer really really surprised me and I'm extremely impressed. It's sooo smooth and creamy, doesn't crease or settle into any fine lines, you also don't need to use a powder because it pretty much sets itself which is nice. I also use it to spot conceal my blemishes and even my dark spots from my "Maskne". I work 9-10 hour days with my mask on, so that's really been making me break out. I stopped wearing face makeup to work because first of all, there's no point nobody can see my skin underneath the mask. And second of all, makeup under my mask just creates a mess with transfer and oily ness from sweating. BUT this concealer changed that for me!!!! It's sweat and oil resistant, and it doesn't make me breakout and I'm extremely extremely acne prone! It literally covered all of my blemishes and dark scars, and it didn't budge the entire work day!!! No transferring and it stayed put. It's basically my dream concealer it does it all. Also it really does cancel out my dark circles, I usually have to use a color corrector prior to my concealers but with this one I don't need to use a corrector. One less step in my makeup routine.
Note: I own every concealer you could think of. Armani, Charlotte Tilbury, Pat McGrath, tarte shape tape, both of Estée Lauder's, I also have all the other Clinique concealers, I have smashbox, urban decay, all of NARS concealers, Fenty, too faced, hourglass, and so much more (I think you get the point I'm making) I'm a makeup hoarder. So just to give you an idea of what kind of products I'm comparing this Clinique concealer too, I think that says a lot because I love a lot of my high end concealers that I own. But this one just takes the cake. I find myself reaching for this everyday lately. It's so lightweight too. Im so impressed and pleased. The price point is just right!!!
Most Helpful Critical Review Decent coverage, some oxidation.
Usually I stick with shape tape or benefit industrial strength concealer because they tend to put less orange undertones in their darker colors, but I'm a clinique formula fan in general (sensitive skin) and decided to give this a whirl. The color (CN 90) was a bit warm for my complexion despite being a cool undertone. I'm bi-racial with medium skin & cool/neutral undertones. It applied nicely, but it oxidize to a more warm color quickly. I was able to use it in spots that I don't typically lighten and it does have very decent coverage (completely got rid of my dark chin scars). Sadly the orange undertone really limits where it can be put. I might try CN 74 at some point because the formula is light weight and coverage is still very full, but i wasn't so wow'd by it that I'll purchase it in a hurry.
Also the sponge at the top is kind of a waste because it doesn't come out, so there's no way to wash it.

This product is really not worth the money. I went in and asked for a recommendation on a concealer that I could apply with my fingers and really would give me good coverage but not look cakey. This concealer streaks and settles into all of my fine lines and looks really strange. I would not recommend it.

I ordered this concealer in the shade "Breeze," and it was considerably lighter than the "Breeze" shade in the Beyond Perfecting powder compact. I'm 62 years old with reasonably good skin for my age, and I had a rather hard time blending this product. First, too much came out on the applicator, so I could only dab VERY lightly with the tip and then blend with my finger and/or small makeup brush. Secondly, to me, it seemed a bit heavy--it settled into pores (I don't have large pores) and accentuated drier areas, making them look flakey. Thirdly, coverage was light to moderate--to get the amount of coverage I need under my eyes, I'd have to reapply, and this only makes the product more obvious on my skin. I'll probably continue to occasionally use what I have, but I don't think I'll repurchase.

This product works amazing as an under eye concealer.
This is now my "MUST HAVE"

Match perfect and love the small sponge applicator on the end to blend perfectly

It really is better!!
MiamiJen from Miami, FL
This is the best concealer I've ever tried. It covers well, lasts long, and is easy to build and blend. Also, it may be the only concealer I've used that doesn't irritate my eyes, at all. I wasn't sure which shade to choose. So, I asked an online consultant through the chat feature on the website. I gotta say, WOW! The shade recommended for me was, "linen", and it couldn't be better. This product not only covers, it brightens, as well. The built-in blender in the cap is an amazing bonus, too. I hope Clinique continues producing this concealer for a long time because I never want to be without it!! I'd give this 10 stars if I could! I'd recommend this product to anyone seeking an easy to use, totally awesome, non-irritating (sensitive skin friendly) concealer. I'd like to give a special thanks to the online consultant that helped me find this product and recommended the perfect shade. This concealer really is, "Even Better"!
Not worth the money

It didn't conceal anything at all and its not worth the money. It was hard to blend and didn't work well with my skin. I returned it
Best concealer I've ever used
CK from Indiana, USA
I'm obsessed with the lightweight coverage, and I can use it alone and blend it out with a brush for a perfect "foundation" look. Set with powder under the eyes, but I do that for all of my concealers. Truly my favorite formula for under eyes and large areas after trying what seems like all of them! (Still use Nars pot concealer for active blemishes)
Angela from South Carolina
This concealer has good coverage but oxidizes within minutes and turns a totally different color that's about 2 shades darker and orange. I'm disappointed because the foundation in this line is great.
It doesn't look heavy on my skin.
Desi cat from Florida
It's natural looking. The only reason I didn't give it five stars, is, I'm not crazy about the applicator.
JD from Laguna Niguel
This product does not apply well and becomes cakey in a few hours.
I would purchase again...
StacyD from Florida
Goes on smooth and covers nicely.
To thick for me & color did not like

Spot cover only
Great for Dry Skin!
Alli from Vermont
I tried so many concealers under my eyes before someone recommended this and so far it's what i've been looking for. I have dark circles and dry under eyes and i tried NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer, Beauty Bakerie Instabake 3 in 1 Concealer and MAKE UP FOR EVER Ultra HD Self-Setting Concealer, but none of these helped hydrate and cover up the dark areas. A little goes a long way and there's an applicator brush under the cap, which is also a plus!
Works great with women over 40
Rae from Texas
I was worried at first with using a concealer period because I'm 42 but this really works great for my skin at least. Also I did my aunts makeup and used this and it worked amazing on her she's 58 so yeah I would definitely recommend this product.
Booth from Orlando
Love love love this new concealer! I haven't tried many complexion products from Clinique but i decided to pick this one up. It's hydrating with medium coverage and it never looks dry and cakey. I am so picky with concealers and I've tried what feels like all of them. This one settles into my fine lines less than others and gives a smooth finish under the eye. It looks beautiful alone or with foundation. This and the milk makeup flex concealer are my ride or die favs.
This did nothing to conceal my dark circles under my eyes.
Laura from FLORIDA
I would not buy this again.
Love this product!!
Midnightrose from Ft Lauderdale
I love how the product glides on the skin. It does very well in covering the dark circles. Other products I've tried leave my skin dry.
Wow! Really great!

I have aging skin. This product really surprised me. I've tried so many products and this one is the one!
Boymom2010 from WV
I really want to love this concealer, but even after messaging a consultant, the color just seems wrong! Maybe if the color was right I would like it better. I wanted it to be one shade lighter than my foundation for under eye dark circles. Even though the shade I bought is supposed to be lighter, it does not look it. I've solely wore Clinique makeup for over 25 years and this is the most off a color has ever been.
Perfect for Under-Eye Dark Circles AND for Redness!
April from Buffalo, NY
I don't normally review products but this concealer is so fantastic that I felt compelled to do so! I ordered this in the exact same shade as the Clinique foundation that I use; it matched my foundation perfectly. A little of this goes a long way and I love, love, love how it blends & blurs discolorations.
I have pretty dark under-eye circles and I tend red & uneven cheeks. This disguised it all, along with a faint brown spot from the sun. The 'eraser' tip is super fun & spongy, I love it.
While this concealer definitely covers my red cheeks, I'd love to see this available in green specifically for redness.

I have been looking for a perfect concealer since Clinique discontinued my holy grail. This one is a great replacement! Stay put all day, covers my worst acne and dark circles.
cmak from NJ
This is a nice concealer but it was too thin for me. It didn't cover my undereye circle but it did a good job in covering imperfections on my face.
Longhotlisa from FL
I cleaned my face, used moisturizer and a primer. Then I applied this product. It did not cover the dark circles, settled into wrinkles and looked horrible.
Sarah from Michigan
I am so impressed with this concealer! I have very dark under eyes. I have tried multiple brands (even the cult favorites) and can either never get a shade match or the formula does nothing for me. I wear a Clinque fondation so I knew what my main shade was and ended up going a shade lighter in my skin tone. Goes on wonderfully and lasts all day. I saw no creasing either.
