Rated 4.31 out of 5 stars
I was pleasantly surprised by this concealer. I have used Benefit cosmetics for decades now but I never really was impressed with their base products.
I got the shade Nectarine which is sadly not my perfect shade however. I can make the shade work, but it's definitely very yellow. I have extremely neutral fair skin, so this pulled way too warm on my skin. My favorite thing to use for color correction all over my face is actually the benefit brow highlight pencil in matte. It's very fair pink and it brightens and corrects for all over my skin. So under eyes, blemishes and redness. I think if this concealer shade was closer to that color for me it would be perfect. The texture of this is extremely lightweight and serum like. I'd say it's about a light medium coverage. It did cling to a big of my dry patches but I applied it all over as spot concealer, not just my under eyes and because the color was a bit off it did start to look a bit caky around the dryer areas of my face. I have combo skin that goes extremely oily. I do really like how this concealer preformed to where I will use it with another shade I have to make it match better. I can see using this as a color corrector on any skintone as it's very thin if just tapped into skin with fingers.
I swatched all my other current concealers next to This Benefit concealer and you can tell it's one of the thinnest formulas most similar to the Maybelline AgeRewind concealer. My go to concealer and perfect shade match is the NARS soft matte in Chantilly which I usually don't use under my eyes because it's thicker and best for spot concealing. I usually skip foundation now and only rely on spot concealing on my skin as I really don't want to see or feel makeup on my skin now that I'm in my mid 30s. The formula of the Benefit concealer is great for this use , not just for under eyes as long as properly hydrated the skin and you aren't expecting full coverage. This would not cover blemishes , it's just not meant for that.
I have combo skin with some dryness and texture around my eyes. I received the shade "Almond" and have mixed feelings about this product, though the color was surprisingly perfect for my medium-tan skin.
The first few tries, this concealer went on light, quickly blended, and never creased. But other times, it creased under one eye or both. It also covered my purple reddish circles and smoothed out the slightly bumpy texture beneath my eyes the first tries, but a few other times it seemed to make the texture more noticeable. It might be the specific "8hr longwear" timeframe they note, so I guess it performs as advertised. But be aware that you might need touch ups if you plan on wearing this longer than 8 hours.
I can say for certain that the coverage is very natural ("my skin but better") yet buildable, which I like for everyday use. It also works well for the face not just under eyes.
Definitely trial and error with this concealer. Maybe I needed to use the whole setting routine (primer, powder, spray) to make it last, but I prefer products that work well on their own, especially for light, natural makeup days. Glad I received this for free thanks to Benefit and Influenster because based on my mixed experience I wouldn't repurchase this and wouldn't recommend unless you usually do a full face and/or don't have oily skin.

I like it , it goes good with my skin. It just can sometimes make my eye look more wrinkly under at times, not sure why

Dev from NYC
I feel like the only one who didnt like this. It barely bas any coverage or brightening properties. Its expesive for how much product you get. The becca undereye brightener is 10000x better

I have always struggled finding concealer to hide my dark circles, I would put it own and it would look white!! Not until I tried this concealer. It matched my skin tone and it covered my dark circles.

Definitely a brightening concealer like it claims. Works beautifully especially under the eye area . Blending is smooth with this product. I do recommend checking it out .

My first undereye concealer (I really needed it, I have such dark bags under my eyes) and I love it! I was concerned this shade would be too pink, but its PERFECT for my pale skin.

This is the BEST under eye concealer I have ever used. I always have dark circles and have struggled to find a good coverage. I have used this concealer in the shade Melon for 7 months and it's phenomenal. I recommend to all my friends!!!

After having an extremely helpful employee help me, we came to the conclusion this was not doing much as far as full coverage but it was a great brighter whenever you apply it, especially under your eyes. I do mix my regular concealer and reapply this brightened to certain areas.

I ordered this because my BareMinerals concealer was out in my color. I'm a minimalist when it comes to face makeup. I only apply concealer on my under eyes because they're always dark. the color match that Ulta did online was spot on! however, the concealer is visible under my eyes. and if I blend it more it just rubs off. not worth the money.
Nif from Bridgewater, NJ
Product seemed promising bc I wanted a lighter concealer to wear on be able to wear without foundation. Bo ing doesn't really provide much coverage at all.

I have been searching for a very long time for something to cover my dark circles under my eyes and also dark spots…. And this is it!! Thank you to BENEFIT COSMETICS!! You nailed it! I will be sharing this with family and friends as well!!

I love this under eye concealer - the best I've ever purchased. Coverage is great and feels like nothing on my skin.
Katie from Maryland
This is my new favorite concealer, the shade range is awesome and it's not cakey and blends well. Kosas can't compare.
Paula from St. Paul
Good coverage. Easy to blend to use.

If you suffer from dark circles under your eyes try this!! I have tried so many different under eye concealers and none of them looked natural or did they match. This under eye concealer matches perfectly with my skin tone and brightens my under eye it's crazy. It literally looks like I have no make up on when I use it. It does not run or smudge. It's so light weight you can wear it all year round. And lets not mention the price and one tube literally lasted me A WHOLE YEAR. Love love love this and it has truly changed my confidence. I wanted to get fillers for my under eye dark circles but since I found this I think I'm good. This is a game changer thank you and please don't discontinue this.

It seems the product is almost empty and dues not do much. Disappointing
slc_sweets from Clearfield,ut
this product is just wierd. no coverage and the color doesn't even blend in. the two closest to my skin tone were just awful and didn't even look like a natural skin tone. I had to return it. I dont understand how they even could launch a product like this.

Best brighten product ever. I love this so much. It does not settle at all. It has a bit of an iridescent look to it. 5 stars.
Sarah from Fall River, MA
I love this concealer, I really do, but I give it 3 stars because it doesn't last all day. It comes off half way through the day leaving a spotty look. It needs to be reapplied. However, with some primer and powder, it lasts a little longer. I absolutely love the dewy finish of this concealer. The color is a perfect match to my skin tone, and it makes my undereyes look so supple. I just wish it lasted all day! I would love to find something just like this that doesn't wear off halfway through the day.
Megan from Maryland
This concealer does what it says it will—brightens. But it doesn't do anything else. It has absolutely zero coverage. All it does for my undereye circles is make them look shiny. It's nice layered on top of an undereye color corrector concealer but I was looking for an all in one product to eliminate multiple products on busy mornings. If you have dark circles and are looking for something that will help conceal them as well as brighten, this is not the product for you.
Jacinda from Branson
Light weight, yet great coverage. Evens out skin tone beautifully.
Snoopy from Indianapolis, IN
I absolutely love this concealer. It is lightweight and looks so natural. You can build it up, and it blends so easily. This is definitely my favorite concealer that I have ever tried
