Most Helpful Positive Review Holy Grail!
I did receive this in the shade Fair Light Warm as a complimentary product to test and give my honest thoughts about, so here are my thoughts. I have terrible dark, Crease prone under eyes. I've tried a couple different concealers and they'll crease so badly within an hour or so the. pretty much just crack and fade within the 3 hour mark. I had given up on trying concealers because I felt like my under eyes just didn't play nice with them. Then here comes smashbox with my holy grail!! I seriously just love this concealer. It really compliments my dark and creased under eyes. As soon as I applied it with my sponge it blended out so nicely and made my under eyes looked sooo SMOOTH! I was shocked, I really didn't have high hopes to begin with when receiving this product because of how bad my under eyes are, but I judged way too quick. Now I can feel confident when doing a full face with this concealer! It did eventually crease but not in a bad way at all and it definitely took several hours for that to happen, plus I know it's my bad under eyes and not so much the concealer's fault. I'll definitely be purchasing this product myself when this baby runs out because I'm all for this concealer. I adore the natural, smoothing finish it has and how easily it blended out. It makes me want to try out a highlight and contour shade now! I'm so happy to have received this for free and get a chance to actually love it 😍
Most Helpful Critical Review Not what I was expecting
So I use concealer everday... I was really excited about this new Smashbox studio skin flawless in shade light neutral olive because it is promoted as a 24 hr concealer. I use concealer as a highlighter and as a standard concealer. I was excited seeing the size of the tube it came in. Bigger than I was expecting! As a highlighter for contouring it works fine and blends well... but as a concealer is really lack any umph... tried to build it up and it still does a poor job of covering blemishes and pimples.... it does good at taking the red out... but not smoothing the skin around the pimple... this would work better on my 16yr old to hide all her skin redness I think...
I received this products #complimentary for testing purposes. But I will not buy again after.

This is probably the worst concealer I have ever used. Ever. Over 3 months I've been trying to love it and make it work, and I've tried everything! Dewy setting sprays, extra EXTRA moisturizing, no powder...and this concealer still always creases horribly, sticks to every dry patch, and gives an extremely cakey finish. I know if you have fine lines, it'll crease no matter what, but I'm 22, and this concealer makes me look 40 in my under eyes. It's okay when applying with your clean finger onto fresh primed skin, sans foundation and setting powder, but if you love glamming and the natural look isn't for you, then this concealer will not be it for you either. I've always liked a concealer that could do both (work for my glam days *and* my natural days), but this concealer is so bad on top of literally any foundation, under any powder, and it just completely glues itself to your dry patches and amplifies all of your skin texture. I know this review is long, but honestly, the details are worth it. I wish I knew these things before I got this concealer. And I was seriously a die hard smashbox fan! Very disappointed, will never purchase again. Maybe it's the matte formula that's just too drying for me :(
Color did not match
California babe from CA
Bought this concealer online because stores were closed. The shade I picked didn't match me 🙁
Yasmeen from Cary, NC
I used to use all MAC products. Their overrated. This Smashbox concealer is the best for African-American skin tones. I'm hooked and will not use another concealer.
Its Great! But its best for certain functions.
Lauren from Chicago, IL
Ok, so I would like to start by saying I am a concealer JUNKIE and am always looking for the best concealers. So you can trust my opinion. First off, (I'll start with the cons) this concealer absolutely does NOT cover blemishes. So, if blemishes are your main concern when looking for a concealer, I would suggest use the It Cosmetics Bye-Bye Breakout or just Tarte Shape Tape (but apply with a brush). HOWEVER, this concealer is EXCELLENT for covering up dark spots, acne scars, and any hyperpigmentation. The formula itself is wonderful and looks BEAUTIFUL and natural on the skin despite being very high coverage. It did crease slightly on my dark circles but if you have lines simply all concealers will do that to a certain extent. As for the dark circles, the It Cosmetics Bye-Bye Undereye is still the BEST for undereyes and creases the least as well. So, overall, if your main concerns are acne scars, hyperpigmentation or dark spots, then THIS concealer will be absolutely excellent for you. Despite being very high coverage, it is still the perfect concealer for an everyday look as well, and looks BEAUTIFUL on the skin regardless. BUT, if one of your main concerns happens to be concealing blemishes or dark circles, then I would say spend your money elsewhere.
Burns and isn't full coverage
Madi from Okc
I don't have sensitive skin and still this burned around my nose. It isn't full coverage either and needs a lot of build up. Doesn't react well with most powders
I wouldn't buy this again.....
Evelyn from Pennsylvania
It's so thick I can't even blend it out properly and it has a really cakey finish.
Bluehairgirl from California
I really really enjoy this concealer! I actually use it as foundation because I love the coverage!! It makes my skin look flawless and I always get compliments when I wear it. It's super long lasting.
Love this product!
Liz from Lumberton, NC
I literally LOVE Smashbox anything, but this is definitely my go to concealer. As a natural redhead with a light complexion, it works very well covering my under eye circles. It works and blends well together with Smashbox 24 Wear Foundation.
Its pretty good
Karla from Huntington beach
I bought this along with the foundation but ended up using this one a lot more. It has great coverage and really gets rid of my redness and dark circles. A bit hard to blend, but overall a pretty good product.
I would buy this product again and again!

This product covers my under eye circles very well and doesn't crease. It's also not oily.
Great for casual makeup
Quetzali from San Francisco CA
It isn't full coverage but still covers up dark circles or blemishes and I can wear it to school without looking like I'm wearing a full face of makeup. Since my skin is a bit oily, it creases throughout the day but it's good as long as it's worn with powder.
Pretty good concealer.
Makeup lover from America
My mom got these concealer in the shade medium and a couple months later let me try it and then keep it. It wasn't as amazing as my too faced or tarte shape tape, but it works well and the shade matches and blends well.
Jackie from Bastrop, Texas
I don't like to use a lot of makeup, and I don't really mind my blemishes being a little noticeable, but my skin gets really red when I break out. It's caused me to be very insecure over the years, and I was looking for something to cover the redness. I've always been very pale, and this concealer just so happened to have a shade light enough to fit my preferences. It's now my go-to concealer, and does an excellent job at hiding my redness. It does have a bit of a blending problem on its own, but I've found that with the right primer (I use smashbox's moisturizing primerizer, I think) and foundation (something more on the dewy side) and the right methods, this is hardly a problem. It doesn't move around too much, and touching up might be necessary after a day out, but it does a good job overall. Also looks pretty natural, which is a plus.
Kristina from NC
I use this every time I do my makeup! It's great for under eye coverage & I use it for other spots on my face as needed. Tip: work on one area at a time though, as it dries quickly & is much easier to work with while wet.
Not my favorite, but fine in a pinch
Carlene from Teaneck, NJ
I really wanted to love this. I loved the texture because it looked and felt very blendable. But this doesn't provide as much coverage as I'd like. It also looks a little dry on me, which is surprising given its almost serum-y like texture. It gives me about a light to medium coverage, and I can still see the discoloration from my under eyes very easily. My biggest issue is that it oxidizes so bad on me. I originally bought a medium shade but it turned into a color darker than my tan olive skin tone. After exchanging it, I had bought light-medium golden and it still turned darker and almost peachier. Despite it turning peachier, it still didn't do well at cancelling the discoloration under my eyes. I'll use it because I have it and I feel bad exchanging it again, but I will not be rebuying this concealer.

Waste of money. It doesn't do anything for you doesn't brighten or cover just disappears into thin air.
Kehau from Las vegas
It's an alright product but I wouldn't purchase again. It does blur the lines under your eye but coverage wise you have to apply at least 4 layers to get full coverage.
Blends like nail polish
Anna from Orange County
This is no joke, the worst concealer I've ever used in my life. For some reason, no matter how moisturized by face is this concealer refuses to blend. At all. Even if I'm rubbing it with my finger, it sticks to my face and will not budge. The only thing this concealer does is exacerbates texture and any dry patches because any attempt to blend the concealer just leads to it clinging to your face. I've tried blending it with a beauty blender, a brush, and a finger. And none of them can make the concealer move.
Buy it now!
Tweety from Folsom ca
I've been using this product for 3 weeks.
After I put eye cream I apply below my eyes dark circle and smear out to eye temple. Kinda in a v shape. It opens my small eyes. The coverage is incredible. I have sensitive eyes but so far it's not a problem. I apply to inner corners of my eyes to brighten. I can say it really covers.
bunchy crunchy and thick
cindy from dubuque
the first hour i wear this its fine but it dries out my under eye and bunches up and gets wierd i tried different primer under it and different powders on top no combination would work
My holy grail concealer!
L.W. from Alabama
I have tried so many concealers over the years and have always been disappointed in the way they would settle into fine lines, weren't blendable, or looked cakey and weird on my face. The light neutral olive is the perfect compliment to my 1.05 Smashbox foundation and they create a flawless look together every time. I love this concealer so much I returned the shape tape concealers that were just sitting in my makeup bag unused cause they just can't do what this one does for me.
Concealing Acne spots #1
Kelly from Florida
This one is perfect for spot concealing I have acne marks from my treatment that basically vanish when I put this on. I have dry skin, but I use moisturizer and hydrating primer like the primerizer and it has never inhabited dry patches, texture, or pores. I have a weird olive undertone and was able to finally find a shade that wasn't too golden, warm, peach, or cool.
Love this Product!
Maryann from Cherry Hill, NJ
I use this as an under eye concealer. The coverage is great for dark circles and it doesn't crease. It's also long wearing.
Jackie from Chicago, IL
Makes my eyes pop while hiding my dark circles under my eyes. Stays on all day and blends well!
So far I love it!
Bonnie C from Rio Rancho, NM
Highly recommend color matching with an associate as there are lots of color and tone options. I haven't had issues with makeup "separating" or looking dry as I have experienced with other high dollar brands.
