What It Claims: Cover-up goes incognito. This moisturizing crease-control concealer with vitamin E and apple seed extract hides dark circles and diffuses fine lines for a silky smooth, ultranatural look. Available in three shades, it’s proven to keep skin hydrated for six hours and won’t cake, crease, or settle.

My review: Let's be honest, I bought it because of the packaging. I am a sucker for pretty packaging (tehe!). But fret not because I am loving it! It comes in a lipstick-like tube. The shades are pretty limited, but medium shade matches perfectly for my skin. The coverage is medium I must say. But it is totally buildable for some people if full coverage is needed. Mine tends to look greasy and cakey so I definitely would not go for this concealer if I need full coverage for my under eyes. The application could not be better. I just stroke some under my eyes and blend them quickly with my ring fingers (sometimes I use brush). I swear this concealer feels so silky! I don’t use it to conceal blemishes as it tends to look a little bit weird. Maybe it does not match my skin undertone. The clear hydrating balm works so well for my under eyes as it brightens up the area instantly. It does crease actually but it is not so obvious within two hours. And yes, it lodges in fine lines under my eyes (I have fine lines at the age of 19, wonder how it will look when I'm 30, eeek!). I always apply some powders afterwards to let the concealer stays.

Love It or Leave It: Love it!
