Pros and cons

Pros: it covers darker spots on the eyes and does help make eyeshadow pop and stay on longer.Cons: Very thick. Very expensive. Makes blending eyeshadow a little difficult.

Nice product but a wee bit pricey

I received mine as a gift included in a kit and think it is highly overpriced. I have very oily lids and have tried many a “primer” product and honestly none of them can keep my shadows from sliding off my lids after 6-8 hours of wear. I’ve been told that those with oily skin take longer to show their age and wrinkles so if that’s the price to pay I’m okay with that. So, what does this “primer” do for me? It nicely covers all veins and such on my lids and leaves a smooth canvas for eyeshadow application. Again, it doesn’t really make them last longer on the lids, but it does help them cling better, show truer color and they blend better over this primer. The primer itself has a nice consistency and blends quickly and easily. It’s not a necessity, in my opinion, and highly overpriced but a nice bonus to have around. I’m going to look for a drugstore substitute when this tube is empty because it has spoiled me a bit.

Awesome.

I ordered that Smashbox Trial kit, with the mascara, face primer, eyeliner…etc…this was definitely my favorite thing out of the box. I have pale skin, and it’s always hard to get eyeshadow to show up well on my eyes, but with this, IT"S AMAZING! Of course, I had doubts that it would not last through out the day, or crease like so many others do, but it didn’t. Hasn’t. I’ve used it three days in a row now, and I am in love. I’m not usually easily so impressed, but with this product, I am.

This is my second order of this product, which is gentle, effective and flattering. It is my go-to eye primer, highlighter and concealer. Completely nonirritating.No shimmer. Just the finest, slighly pinkish powder. And it’s protective.

Oh my lines!

I love colorscience products, and while this is a necessary item for those of us with pale faces, this item does me no favors esthetically speaking. The powder is great and doesn’t cause any reactions in my very hypersensitive skin, and I like that I’m getting an extra dose of protection. While the color matches up with my skin, this really does settle in and point out those nagging little fine lines. So… it’s skin-saving, I’m sure, but it also reminds me of my age (or lack of sleep).

Terrible

This powder was terrible to use. It’s heavy and if used with eye concealer or primer, it cakes terribly. Not to mention, the sponge applicator is hard to use. It wouldn’t brush on lightly, you have to pat it one and that causes it to clump and cakes. Ugh. What a total disappointment.

Versatile but only for some

Benefit’s version of an eye primer is very interesting. I found that it actually doesn’t perform as well as you would like as a primer, but that it’s really better as a concealer. Sure, it makes eyeshadows seem more vibrant, but I still had some creasing while using this. So I tried it on my undereye circles to see how it would fair and it worked really well. It’s very opaque and creamy and covered up the circles very well.But as great of a concealer as this is, it could really only work for fair to medium skintones because it comes in only one color.But overall I would still recommend it!

Interesting concept

I’ve never heard of a primer for concealer before and thought it was an interesting concept, but really this product works very well as a concealer alone. It does not perform well at all as a shadow primer, it creases terribly and almost instantly after putting your shadow on. If you try and put a concealer on top of this it will look a little thick and cakey, but that’s ok because like I said this alone works great as a concealer so it’s not a total loss.

Dry and Hard

Cream concealer? On what planet?When I used this under my eyes, it was so dry that it tugged the skin no matter how much concealer I used. Also, it was way too light for my skin tone, and even under my thick Clinique foundation it still created horrible.Not worth the price. It went into the trash.

Does a great job

I like the golden yellow color, and I use it for under eye area, contouring down the sides of my nose, as a coverup for minor blemishes, and to open up the inside corners of my eyes. I run it from the inner corner of my eye up to the eyebrown to lighten the area and “wake it up.” I like he idea that it’s all natural and contains primrose oil, shea butter, jojoba, vitamin E, and rosemary. This is something I’d reorder when needed, but it’s lasting me a while.

Best concealer I have tried!

I have very thin skin, especially under my eyes, so I found this formula a little too thick for using as an under-eye concealer. I love it, however, for hiding bruises and discolorations on other areas of my face, arms and legs. I have a small area of discoloration on my shin that shows through my stockings and makes me very self conscious. I have tried numerous concealers on this area and never found one I liked until I tried Watts. It makes it completely disappear and does not come off until I use soap and water. An added benefit is that Watts’ concealer is very gentle and doesn’t irritate my skin 🙂

bring back the old product

Let me start by saying I really like the Olay/CoverGirl products and USED to love the concealer that came in the little pot. However this one is way too much of a loose liquid- drips and does not cover like the other one did and for some reason every time I used it my eyes burned terribly-I am not sure what they did to change the formula but I had to throw mine out and look for another concealer- I am sorry CoverGirl but this time you goofed-Bring back the other formula

Runs dark, doesn’t cover completely

The shades in this line run yellow and dark. I normally use a light-medium concealer but here I should have gone with fair. The product does go on smoothly but isn’t terribly opaque and probably couldn’t handle middle-aged eye bags very well on its own. I’ve been mixing it with a stick concealer to lighten it up and provide more coverage.

Concealer

It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Full Coverage Waterproof Concealer is the best concealer I have found. I use it under my eyes and for brown blotches on my face. I use a concealing flat brush to apply, then blend the edges with my finger. The neutral medium color is light and bright. My skin tone is light-medium but found the natural medium to light to use on face. I use it under my eyes, then blend in the tan color under eyes and use for blotches on my face. The neutral medium turned gray on my blotches, but the tan – which is not dark worked great. The tan also is not brightening which is better as a face concealer. A little brightness is great for under the eye, but not the face. When I use the neutral medium only around the eyes, my son said I had owl eyes. It is easy to apply and a little goes a long way. I also use the Bye Bye Pores HD silk micro powder puff to seal the concealer under eyes, than use a soft brush with the powder on the rest of my face. It gives a nice finish and it really does not settle in the wrinkles like BE powders do. I recommend this concealer, but watch the shades- the 2 are great for me.

Love / hate

I love this concealer because of the great coverage but you have to find the right product to set it with. This is a very hydrating concealer and almost has a glow to it. I have to set it with a good powder. My sister sets hers with the Mallys face defender and she swears by it. So if some of you use that already then this might be a good product for you.

Thick

That is the first word I would use to describe this product. I tried using less and mixing it with my daily moisturizer. It was still difficult to put on and not look like you have a thick layer on your eyes. I kept trying smaller and smaller amounts. Never found the perfect amount to mix with moisturizer. It is light reflective however, definitely difficult to blend, tends to seep into fine lines and after a few hours actually makes them look deeper than they are. Of course, all of these reviews are opinions, but my opinion is, if you’re over 45…this is not what you want to purchase.

Great under eye cover up and moisturizer

I decided to try this after buying and searching for many under eye products. I am in my 50’s and looking for something that would conceal, moisturize, and NOT settle into my under eye lines.This product does all of the above.It comes in two shades. I bought the lightest. It gives a nice glow, total coverage of dark areas. Moisturizes also, this products stays in place, I also got the setting powder after reading reviews on makeupalley saying that it was too greasy. I don’t find it too greasy. Use a small amount, and it stay youthful looking without being matte or cakey looking. I love it!I am also looking to buy the under eye serum for night use.The pot is small, but I have been using it daily for weeks, and there is just a very small amount gone. I think it will outdate before I use it all up.For the price, give this product a try, it outshines products I paid much more for.

Not for Dark undereye circles

If you are looking for a miracle like I was for your super dark genetic black undereye circles this just isn’t it unfortunately. If you have normal dark undereye circles like all the girls claim on youtube that are super black (but really aren’t!) then this might work but if they are truly dark keep looking!!
