Most Helpful Positive Review Love It!
I purchased this concealer specifically for my under eye area and it did not disappoint! I fell in love with the 16hr Camo concealer however it was too drying for my under eye area and accentuated my fine lines. I will soon be 58 yrs old and my skin has always been oily however my under eye area is now dry. This stuff is PERFECT to blur the aging process!!
After moisturizer, I apply the Poreless Putty Primer with my fingertips under the eye then follow with the hydrating concealer (little goes a long way) also with my fingertips to warm it up. I then use a damp beauty blender to blend it out and set it with my Laura Mercier Translucent Powder and the end results are FLAWLESS!! I live in a very hot/humid climate and this concealer is Perfect for my no-makeup days using the hydrating camo under eye and the 16hr camo to blur face imperfections once you blend it out and set it! However, do BEWARE that the color chart is OFF and you can't use the 16hr Camo Concealer of the same shade as your guide. In my pic, 1st Row 16hr Camo: (L-R) Deep Olive, Deep Cinnamon, Deep Chestnut, Rich Chocolate. 2nd Row Hydrating Camo: (L-R) Deep Caramel, Deep Chestnut, Rich Chocolate.......as you can see the color difference for Deep Chestnut & Rich Chocolate!!
Most Helpful Critical Review Not that great
I've heard all the rave reviews about the original version of this concealer, but there were many complaints that it's too dry, so I never tried it. I've been pretty impressed by other drugstore concealers with the same concept and giant doefoot applicator, but there's always room for improvement. When I saw there was a new hydrating camo concealer, I thought it had to be good with the high coverage and long wearability of the original combined with a more hydrating finish. Sadly, this concealer is only medium coverage and it wears just ok. I've had days where it creases and totally disappears, and other days where it stays put with just average creasing. The coverage is not impressive, though. You have to pile it on to get coverage, which adds to the texture and creasing problem. I would not buy this again. It's probably good for people with dry skin, average to minor dark circles, and overall clear skin. If you need more coverage or have combination to oily skin, this isn't the concealer for you.

I liked this concealer very much. It was hydrating and the application was nice. The only thing I would say is it felt a bit sticky on my face but, after I blended it and set it. It went away and felt fine.
Thought I'd try it and I love it!
Teesha from Rapid City, SD
I thought I would try this because I use a darker tone of the same concealer for my contouring and I love how long lasting it was! It was just as awesome!! I used it all over my face as a concealer and foundation plus the darker tone to contour!! Its absolutely phenomenal!! Even after a good cry! It was like nothing ever happened !!! And I'm picky!!!
Great affordable option.
Cal from Detroit
This is terrific! It gives you several minutes of workable time before it sets, and doesn't look too matte or caked. I will say that it isn't an all day concealer. It tends to break up after six to eight hours.
Len from WA
Product was pretty good for the price I brought both this and the camo concealer. If u want one get this one the camo is the most drying thing ever. This one however was creamy and doesn't crease that much as the camo.
BBshops from Missouri
It's blends nicely and feels light on the skin! I can still see a bit of darkness under my eyes, but for the most part it's a nice concealer! And you can't beat the price!
Will never use another concealer again
Amber from United States
Everything is great about this concealer. I do not have one bad thing to say about it! I love it!
mic from ohio
drying, cakey, not full coverage for dark circles. i hated this so much and i have tried it multiple times bc people rave about it.
This is the second one I bought it is so full coverage.
Joce from Hollister
You can use it with a sponge or your fingers. No matter what it will get rid of your dark circles!

I love this concealer. Its creamy and blends great into your skin.
One of the worst concealers I've ever used
isa from Princeton, NJ
Oof this concealer was really bad. I wanted to love it because I heard so many good things about it, but holy moly. I usually buy it cosmetics bye-bye undereye concealer, but I've been eyeing a couple high end concealers that I'm not sure about yet. I needed something to old me over so I decided to try this.
For one. It's incredibly drying. I tried so many ways to make this work. I tried on my bare skin (no skincare), after moisturizing a ton, after moisturizing AND primer, and it was still so so dry. It enhanced my texture on first apply. Just no.
It's also really hard to blend out. I tried to apply with my fingers after warming up the product, tried with a tiny amount then a medium amount, I tried with a flat brush, i tried with a beauty blender, and nope nope nope. I still look liked crusty the clown. I tried using a setting spray and still nothing. I tried to cover with my regular light dusting of translucent powder and that only made everything 500x worse. If I was crusty the clown before, now I was basically just a pop eye's biscuit.
Also... this shade range isn't it. I have neutral-warm leaning medium skin. I bought this in store (couldn't test bc covid) and the lighting made the colors seem pretty indistinguishable. I ended up going with the shade light beige and oh my. I looked ORANGE. so orange. In the tube ol' girl looks warm, but on my skin it looked so orange. And since it's difficult to blend and drying, you could clearly see where the concealer stopped and began, no matter how I tried to hide it with other makeup.
Beauty gurus please stop lying. You gotta make your coin but this ain't it.
Great for the cost
Jay from West Virginia
I have both the matte and hydrating camo concealer, I definitely like the hydrating one more. You can't beat the cost of the ELF line. I find most of their products really great considering the low cost.
Use it as a foundation you will thank me!
MR from NY
This product did not work well for me as a concealer I found that it off increased underneath the eye area but when I tried to use it as an overall foundation it looks amazing!!
Love this product!
Sophie from Pennsylvania
I apply this under my eyes and on my cheeks and it does wonders
I will NOT be buying this product again
jules from guilford CT
Honestly this concealer was pretty good. Had lots of coverage. BUT IT DEPENDS ON YOUR SKIN TYPE. it claims to be "hydrating" but it's literally so dry, and me having dry skin, this was just awful for it. I didn't get acne or anything but overtime it has made my skin really flakey. I mean it's good but not for dry skin like me.
Alydai from Portland
On my first couple of uses, I'd say this is a great dupe for shape tape. It's a tiny bit more hydrating though. But If you have super dry under eyes I probably would recommend something more hydrating. I love the doe foot applicator and packaging. A great product for the price range.
Not really full coverage
Jac from Florida
This really wasn't full coverage at all. I was switching from shape tape, and this was wayyy more translucent. It builds up though, so that's good.
Most amazing concealer.
Sev from Fl
I absolutely love this product. This concealer is so affordable and my favorite concealer I've tried. I immediately tried the product as soon as I received it (when I woke up) and had the worse dark circles ever. It got rid of them so fast and I looked like a lively person again. I loved it so much I got one for my mom as well, who doesn't wear makeup that often but loves this ELF concealer. The product itself is very moisturizing and blends well into my skin. I'm so happy with this purchase.

Blends beautifully with a sponge and make up brush.
Not a fan
pinkvampira from California
As a consumer who has very very dry skin and really enjoyed the 16 hr camo concealer, I thought I would give this concealer a try.
First things first, the shade range is not consistent with the 16 hr camo concealer. I have very fair skin with dark eye circles. As I wear fair beige in the 16 hr concealer, I thought I would get the fair beige in the hydrating concealer as well. Boy did I think wrong! My undereyes were ORANGE!
Not only was the shade not consistent with the previous, but it didn't wear well either! Within 3 hours, my dark circles began to peek through! Maybe it is due to a thinner formula.
Overall not a fan. Wouldn't purchase again.
Trisha from Minnesota
I love this concealer compared to the original one. The other one has dried out my skin. When I bought this concealer it was a dream! It does not try out my skin and leave dry patches and the coverage is amazing! High would recommend if you want a great concealer for a cheap price point.
Hannah from Indianapolis
I have very oily skin and I've tried this product in multiple different ways. I put the concealer on all throughout under my eyes and used my sponge to buff it out, then I would use VERY light setting powder. It would crease almost instantly. I have also tried applying very lightly, one mark towards the inner corner of my eyes and then one mark towards the outer corners of my eyes and use my spread to apply that way. I would then add a VERY light setting powder and it would still crease within 30 min, if not, less. I really wanted to like this concealer but it's just not for me.
my new fave I use every daily
