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.

The description is very fair and it's tan. It's a thick, candy concealer. Just meh all around.
Hydrating and long lasting, but a small issue
Lauren from Florida
I really do like this product. I've used Clinique most of life. This concealer lasts all day with minimal creasing/transfer, and it's very hydrating for my dry skin. My one issue would be the color match. I've been matched in person twice and both times I've gotten the same shade. The shade works great under my eyes, but on any red spots or scars it turns orange. Now that may just be my own issue, and it is far less noticeable when I have a green color corrector on. It's just a little disappointing knowing I can't find the right shade :/
I plan to buy more of these!

I use it to cover my darks spots on my face and under my eyes.
Does not conceal
Ashes from Bristol Va
Product does not conceal and makes fine lines and bags seem worse.
Finally an under eye concealer that works
Bolt617 from NY
I have tried so many under eye concealers over the years -- alone and in combination -- and have never found just the right product. This one is perfect. I bought the same color as the foundation I use. The consistency is very easy to work with. I place a few dots in the dark area under my eye and feather it out to my cheeks. It blends in perfectly with seamless coverage and looks natural all day.
Conceals best of any used. Color matches foundation-Yeah!
Marie from Brazos Center in Rosenberg TX 77469
Conceals the best of any every used. Color matches very well with foundation and blends in well with tip provided with the concealer.
Mature adult from AR
I used this concealer under my eyes. The texture and creaminess are good. The color is good and didn't seem to settle in my fine lines too much. I would definitely recommend for older women.
Color match good - under eye lines bad
Tea Chick from Roseville
I picked up the concealer to match the Diamond gift foundation that matched. While the foundation is wonderful, unfortunately the concealer is not so. I could use this for covering blemishes elsewhere on my face but I initially bought this for under eye coverage. Immediately every wrinkle from inner to outer eye were apparent, very apparent.
I would go back to my old brand
Katiedid from Hudson ohio
The coverage is a little heavy for me , I prefer a lighter touch . Also color was to yellow , would prefer a warmer selection but one was not available in this particular brand .
Nic from Lompoc, CA
Testing the product in store was okay but after buying and using a new bottle at home i felt a a burn sensation at the touch when applied under my eyes. I would not recommend this product to anyone who has a sensitive or sensitive to moderate skin. Product I purchased - WN 16 BUFF A51
Great Coverage and improved skin!
Teacherpack from Helena, Alabama
This is the best concealer on the market! I have used different types of concealer over the years to hide my dark circles, puffy eyes, and rosacia. Finally I have one that works! It's also great as base for your eye makeup.
Rox from Pennsylvania
Covers areas very well. I have never used concealer before and since I have always had good luck with Clinique products before I decided to try it for those lines, wrinkles and under eyes and it works great. Definitely recommend!
cycling mom from VA
I really like this concealer. I don't like the sponge thing to blend, my fingers do a good job. The concealer is full coverage and I have same shade as the foundation to match. I consider Clinique to be high end and this is the first high end concealer I have purchased. I am in my early 50's and I really like this a lot. This doe not emphasize my lines around my eyes but it does not blur them out. That's OK. I am older now and some things I just have to accept.
My go-to concealer
Kara from Chambersburg, PA
Sales person recommended-love the applicator for targeting small areas-good coverage on dark circles. Tends to powder up and gather in my creases unless I really, REALLY moisturize but I do like it a lot.
Lrob3971 from Stitling
I loved this concealer but unfortunately it has the simplicity acid if I'm explaining that correct where it drys out pimples. I used it under my eyes a lot and all my eyes did was tear and burn! So I had to switch. M

this consealer is so effective. it covers dark circles and redness so good without drying the skin. i just love it !
Concealer is fine, but messy/leaky bottle
Shorty from Portland OR
Concealer works fine on top of primer, and I like that it matches my Clinique foundation. However, if you do not keep it upright (like if it's laying down in a makeup bag sideways), the concealer leaks out where the cap connects to the tube and makes a huge mess. Super annoying because I do travel sometimes, so I guess I need to pick a new brand of concealer.
CMA from Portland, OR
I love using this because it's lightweight but still provides full coverage under my eyes. I use shade Buff. I'm able to hide my dark circles and brighten my eyes. I love this concealer so much that I bought one for my mom too!
My eyes are outstanding
Softball from Oceanside
I bought this concealer to cover dark circles and it's amazing. I have tried so many concealers and nothing compares to this one.
I use it alone or with makeup.
It's the best
This will replace Dior Skinstar
