Most Helpful Positive Review my favorite concealer! please make more shades!
This concealer is so underrated, especially for those with REALLY dry skin. I've tried a lot of concealers: NARS Radiant Creamy, NARS Soft Matte Complete, Sephora Gel Serum, Tarte Shape Tape, UD Naked Weightless, etc. The Clinique Line Smoothing is by far the one I rely on and reach for the most. I've repurchased it three times now! I have eczema around my eyes and mouth and this is the only concealer that doesn't stick to my flakes. It doesn't accentuate the dryness, it rather feels like it's moisturized and is comforting to apply, especially when I have an active break out of eczema. I also have major dark circles under the eyes that this concealer is able to fully cover without settling into fine lines or looking too heavy. I like to blend out this product with either my finger or a damp beauty blender. The only MAJOR downfall to this product is the color range. The shades are either way too pink or too orange! Also the way the shades are listed online are hard to figure out, so I would go to a counter to shade match yourself. I'm Filipina with a light-medium skin tone and I use 08 Medium Beige. I can make it work for me most of the time, but I imagine for others who are in-between shades or have darker skin will NOT find their color in this concealer. It's such a shame because the formula is wonderful. Clinique, it is essential to expand your shade range in all of your products, just like you did with the 2-1 Foundation. I honestly think this concealer could be a cult favorite if they promoted it with a full range of shades. It's that good!
Most Helpful Critical Review Bring back quick corrector!!!
I have been using the Clinique quick corrector + pressed powder as my basic makeup for 20 years. Counter sales reps are trying to suggest either this product or the airbrush concealers as replacements. I have tried them both & they will NOT work for what I need. Light was the perfect color for my fair skin and was thick enough to cover but also blended well -- so you could use it just to cover blemishes or other spots and you don't need a full face of foundation (yuck!). It also didn't have a weird yellow undertone. The airbrush is too light & this product is just not the right consistency (too liquid?). Please BRING BACK MY QUICK CORRECTOR. I will now begin shopping at other makeup counters looking for a new solution -- something I have never done in my adult life -- so now you risk losing a lifelong customer for all the other products I buy too. PLEASE listen to all your loyal customers -- we want this product back.

I buy this product every month
Susan from Midland, MI
I love this product, I use daily.
DH from Atlanta, GA
I love this! Tried several different ones, and none really worked well. Chatted with Clinique to get the right shade. Perfect!
Vee from MD
I bought this concealer to use for my brow and under eye area. I must say this concealer goes on so smooth! I have wrinkles on my hooded eyelids and wrinkles under my eyes. I also have dry skin that most concealers cling to and it makes me look really bad. On top of this my kids/t-zone gets really oily throughout the day (horrible m, I tell you). This concealer did that at first, but switching to a different setting powder, it lasted longer! My wrinkles are still there but they looked a little more smoothed out and I just love the fact that it doesn't slide off my face.
I would buy again!
Bev from CT
I was a faithful Chanel user of their corrector/concealer. I now use this one and like it very much. I am glad I made the change.
Crease free concealer
Granny from Moreno Valley
I've tried so many concealers for the under eye and this one doesn't crease.
I will buy this product again and again and again!!!!!
Roci from Apple Valley

Rainy from Kansas
Seems to accentuate fine lines around the eyes and doesn't offer any coverage for redness or blemishes.
I would buy again!
Bev from CT
I have been a long time user of Chanel's concealer. I tried Clinique's and I like it very much. All I can say is Chanel concealer you will have to step aside.
Disappointing, too dry!
Sam789 from New Orleans
It's covering indeed but too dry and it doesn't blend well. I think I'm gonna go back to what I was using before.
Does what it says, good for mature skin
Archie Blue Shoes from Arizona
I was looking for a concealer with a natural looking color that would not settle into the lines under and around my eyes. I am so happy with this product, it does just what it says it does. Its wonderful for those of us who are over 50. Also, a little goes a long way. Im very happy with this product.
Really smooth and blends well.
Maria from Ohio
The concealers is thick but not too thick, you only need a tiny amount, and it blends super easily!
Great color and super-blendable!
grammarmaiden from Arkansas
I have severe allergies, and as a result, always had puffiness and dark circles under my eyes. Now that I'm in my mid-thirties, I'm getting some fine lines as well. A consultant recommended this product. I love the color, and it's super-blendable. It really brightens my whole eye area! I use it alone or with foundation. I've also used it to cover other imperfections, and it works great! I'm giving it four stars because I've used it almost daily for over 6 months, and I haven't noticed a difference in my fine lines. However, I love the product and will continue to use it anyway!
Bebe from Florida
This concealer really covers. I went to have a facial and the technician said it was really effective in covering under eyes as well as dark spots on the side of my face. Love this concealer and it lasts a long time.
Great For Red Lines On Your Face & Other Flaws
Calder from Florida
Excellent for concealing permanent and temporary Flaws on your skin/face.
I have been using this particular product for many years (Medium Color).
When it comes to a few thin red veins/lines on my face . . . no other product compares to this one! I have tried numerous OTHER PRODUCTS in the past, but they do not hide the defects as well as Clinique Line Smoothing Concealer. It also has a fairly long-term good staying-time on your face.
I have never used this product for lines under my eyes--so I cannot comment on that.
I absolutely recommend it for any flaws.
Christine702 from Pennsylvania
This is the second time I'm getting it and I won't buy anything else. I am 30, use it just for spots here and there, and it does a fantastic job. My first tube lasted awhile for me. It covers really well and I don't notice it wiping off throughout the day. Definitely recommend!
Burns My Under Eyes & Accentuates Lines
sarah16 from Atlanta, Georgia
This product burned and stung the area under my eyes that I applied it. I did not think I had sensitive skin, but this was terrible. I still have redness and irritation under my eyes and it has been two days since I applied it. Additionally, this product only enhances lines and it creases. I prefer my drug store concealer! This hurt.
NinaO from Saint Petersburg,FL
I have been using this concealer for some dark spots that I have from sun damage. I feel that this concealer does a pretty good job hiding the dark spots.
everyday use !
Didi from SRQ, FL
I use this product everyday ! great for dark circles.
Daria from Chicago
I have been using this concealer for years and still love it despite all the new products on the market. This is a really basic product that does what a concealer is supposed to do. It feels comfortable on the skin and looks natural and lasts all day. It does not accentuate wrinkles. It provides more natural look than some full coverage concealers and really brightens. It's easy to apply with the applicator it comes with.
calibee from westlake village, Ca
great coverage, lasts all day
Wendy from KY
Love this product. It's lightweight and does the job. I've been using the shape tape by tarte but love the clinique better. Its not heavy on my face and is better for my mature skin.
It was. Let Down
LandonG from Portland, Oregon
I love Clinique products. I have a bathroom full of moisturizer, toners, eye creams, etc. I have been using a drug store eye concealer for a long time, but when my last bottle ran out, I knew I wanted to switch to a Clinique brand, (because I loved everything I've bought) but after a few days of wearing it, my husband said it didn't look right. So this weekend I decided to do a test and applied one eye with this product and the other with my old drug store brand, and everyone said the drug store brand looked way better. It looked more natural and got rid of the dark circles better. So, unfortunately I will be going back to my drug store concealer.
