Rated 4.19 out of 5 stars
I've struggled with finding an elf concealer that is fair enough to use under my eyes, so I bought the lightest warm shade in the collection. To my surprise, it was significantly lighter than the lightest shade of the HD Lifting Concealer! I ended up loving the formula, so I repurchased the camo concealer in the shade medium peach, which is a much better match. I hope these swatches are useful...for reference, I am shade 110 porcelain in Maybelline smooth and dewy foundation and Shell Ivory in the Wet 'n Wild photofocus foundation.
I was SO excited to try this concealer as it seems to be all the rage on the YT beauty channels. And YES...it covers/ conceals, it IS blendable (if you work SUPER fast as it is very fast setting), it DOES last (I have not tried the full 16 hours, but last longer than some others I have tried) BUT...it also enhances every.single. fine line. under my eyes. EVERY one, even the ones I didn't know I had until I used this product.
My skin is normal and well hydrated. No other concealer I have used has placed a spotlight on my fine lines like this does.
What I have tried (using only 2 little dots, not the entire applicator fill)
*Using alone over my normal hydration
*Adding extra hydration
*Adding hydration TO the concealer
*Using my finger
*Using a concealer brush
*Using a flat foundation brush
*Using a Beauty Blender
Love SO many of the E.L.F. products, but for this one I am not a fan.

The applicator of this concealer is amazing but the product it's self no. It had coverage but when i put powder it looked cakey and not good. Had mix feelings about this product but will not be purchasing again!

I feel like I'm applying paint to my face. dries super fast before you can even start blending. doesn't blend well either. looks cakey!!

I bought this because I really like the hydrating (white lid) camo concealer and I wanted to give this matte version a try. I got the exact same shade (light sand) and they are completely different. Unfortunately I ordered online and waited a little to long to return.

I love the hydrationg version of this concealer but this one is just awful! The product itself is dry on the skin, and it will dry down WAY too fast. Im talking you can start immediately blending it out and it will dry down in SECONDS!!

I had previously used the Hydrating Camo Concealer and fell in love with it. I bought this as a replacement and the formula and color just didn't work for my skin. The color is much lighter and the formula dried so fast I couldn't blend it out.

This concealer dries so fast it's impossible to blend out.

The make up artist for a friends wedding used this concealer , its good and inexpensive, always a little difficult for me to get the right color in concealers so I did go back for a darker shade.

I bought this in fair rose, and I am incredibly pale (almost always the lightest shade in everything) and it was too light. I could probably get away with it in the winter but I was shocked that it was so light, way lighter than the picture. And it was VERY VERY hard to blend. I had to wipe it off because it like stained my face in a circle where I put a dot of it. This product may work for some but its just too much. I might try mixing it with a moisturizer or serum to tone it down a bit.

The coverage of this product is more than I expected. A little goes a long way. I was concerned with separation throughout long wear, but this product does very well on my super oily face. It does have a slight paint smell to it, so if you're sensitive to smells you may not be a fan. However, I don't think it's that bad and at an affordable price point, it's definitely worth a try.

I returned this for a few shades darker but love this long lasting ability

I love this concealer, it lasts all day and provides good coverage— personally, I prefer elf's hydrating camo concealer satin finish because its more hydrating and looks nore natural imo. But honestly there isn't an elf product that I've disliked so far :))

I purchased Light Ivory (see top swatch in photos). After it dries, the shade darkens (see 2nd pic), so keep that in mind. I found it to be a very dry formula and hard to smooth out application. But, maybe it works better on younger skin. I also purchased the Trish McEvoy Instant Eye Lift in the lightest of the 2 shades (see middle swatch in photos). It went on like a dream very smooth. I loved it. No color shift upon drying. The bottom swatch is YSL Touche Eclat High Cover in shade 1.5. I would not repurchase the Elf, but I thought the Trish McEvoy was worth the price.

Elf has really revamped in the last two years and i think this is a must buy for your makeup kit.

Mimi from Texas
This concealer is really drying and super cakey the color didnt match the packaging at all and it id super hard to blend it doesn't give you time to blend it dries out super quick but this is just my opinion if this works for you great it definitely didnt work for me
Emma from Maryland
I bought this one on accident, meant to buy the hydrating one. When I put it on it blended out fine but almost immediately dried up and flaked off. I tried it again the next day with a little extra moisturizer and had the same problem. I don't even struggle with dry skin so ik it's definitely the product. Go with the hydrating one, not this one
el from Traverse City, MI
i bought this in store in shade medium peach. the packaging showed the product to be much much darker when in reality its one of the lightest concealers i own. the coverage is okay but it can be hard to blend if you dont add a lot of product. i would give five stars but the shade matching is so off it's ridiculous.
Anon from MA
I tried this because I loved the hydrating version. I have overall very smooth skin but this manages to cling to just about anything and separate. Under my eyes it get super dry and grainy looking. Wouldn't recommend this one!
SO from Falls Church, VA
This has great coverage and dries down to a matte finish. The con I have is that it oxidizes on me throughout the day.
karsin from hopkinsville ky
it has great coverage but its very drying. i have incredibly oily skin and its still very drying on me. it also dries very fast. while im putting it in the spots i need it, it will already be drying and then when i try to blend it out its hard since its already dried down so much.
Adriana from Florida
Tried and true. I have tried several other concealers and although some do come close, i a always come back because of that price. It blends out like a dream, just don't let it set bc it dries QUICK and then it kinda ruins your look.
