I've never taken the time to review an item before, but let me just say: this concealer is freakin' awesome. SO much better than the All About Eyes concealer from Clinique. Doesn't cake, crease, and covers my dark circles well -unlike the one I tried before. I'm picky about concealers (they must feel lightweight but be opaque) and this meets my expectations. Highly recommend. :)
I recently purchased doublewear flawless wear concealer and was so disappointed that the formula had changed from the one I have used for 5+ years. The new formula is "buildable" which actually means it doesn't cover at all as well as the old one. With the old one, I just put five small dots under each eye and one dot on other flaws, then patted with a finger and the dark circles and flaws disappeared, looked like virtual skin, never caked, looked at 11 pm just like it did at 8 am after application. I have blue veins on my cheek and temple and the old formula completely covered them and looked just like my own skin. The new formula doesn't cover the veins :( The new formula is just like all the drugstore ones I tried before I found the old Estee Lauder concealer. Please bring the old one back!
Best Concealer EVER!!! Big Smiles and Very Happy!!

Okay, so I have wasted so much money and time looking for a product that will help conceal my very dark circles ( allergies, genetics, and lack of 8hrs sleep). I was introduced to Double Wear Concealer. I LOVE IT!! It goes on smoothly, doesn't dry out during the day, and looks very natural. I don't have to use an Illuminator at all. Thank you and I will see you when I run out.
I wear a powder/mineral foundation and I get a better look when I use a concealer first. The department store associate helped me pick the right color for my blotchy skin tones. The result was wonderful. The powder foundation goes over the concealer smoothly and gives me a flawless look that I haven't had in years!! Thanks
I love that this concealer blends so nice and evenly with a brush that I don't even need foundation. The foundation I apply on top of it goes on smoothly. I've had previous concealers wipe away when putting the foundation ontop of it.
The only downside is that it really needs a brush to be put on. Otherwise I cannot get it to look even.
I just started using this product and decided that I will never be without it! It is the best concealer ever. I have very fair skin and had always been using light or very fair concealers, but I never liked the white raccoon eye effect they gave. The EL expert had me try the medium light which is perfect for me. The coverage is excellent and it does not cake. It blends with my other makeup and it stays put until I take it off.
I've used this concealer for years and often raved about it to friends (or anyone that would listen!) but when I recently repurchased it I was so sad to see a change. As a rather sleepless new mom, the previous formula had been a saviour to my dark circles. Now, I'm faced with far less coverage, even if I layer it on...I still look tired.
I wish they never reformulated this. In the begining, I was excited as this product does go on a lot smoother than the past formula. However, under my eyes (after I apply eye cream and wait abotu 15 minutes), it ends up creasing. Badly. If I apply it at 6 am, by 1 pm I need to redo it completely. It also seems to not cover as well. Before I used a minimal amount for my dark cirlces and now I have to apply quite a bit. Also - if you apply on sides of your nose & then apply powder, a few hours later the concealer gets cakey and visisble. the old never did that. :(
I rec'd a sample of Estee's concealer in a gift bag. I didn't really know what it was, and decided it made a great concealer. LOL It is a great concealer! I wanted a shade lighter or tinted diffently, so I went with a "warm" tint in the same color. Smashing. Nothing I've ever used has provided such full concealment without being obvious. Try the "hints" that are freely available on this website. I promise that you will learn something new about your favorite products and find new ones, too.
I recommend this concealer. It blends easily, and though this may sound funny, the sponge tip application is great. I've experienced not-so-comfortable and very messy concealer applicators in the past, so this is a nice change.
I love this product, however it needs to be thinned down a bit or it is thick and goopy. I blend it with a little eye gel / cream, and then pat it around upper and lower eye area. Looks very natural that way, and covers well. I use it every day, and it really brightens up my face, in a 'natural way', which I believe in ~ I totally recommend this !!! ENJOY ;-) *** It also is easy to match my skin color, also, which is a MUST for the natural look ! ! ! !
I have used Estee Lauder products for quite a few years now, but this was the first time ever using this particular item. I received it as a free sample and just used it a couple days ago when I had a not-so-attractive spot on my face. I used the smallest dot of this and it covered beautifully!! Blended it in and you couldn't even tell I had used anything.....blended perfectly (unlike store bought concealers I have used)
I have vitiligo and had been looking for a product to cover the skin color abnormalities. I have used this product for a couple of years now and is a staple in my cosmetic bag. If you need good coverage that stays in place all day, has an SPF factor and is easy to apply, then this is your product.
