...Wish they still made the mauve color. I've used Estee Lauder products for years, including the Smoothing Creme Concealer in two colors, smooth light and barely mauve. I started using this product when Estee Lauder stopped making another of their concealers in mauve, and was perfectly happy with this version of concealer in the same color. I use the barely mauve (a pale blueish color) under everything else. Unfortunately, the mauve is no longer made, so I'm going to have to make do with just the smooth light and hope that's enough.
Love everything Estee Lauder but did not like this. Prefer the Doublewear Stay-in-Place Flawless concealer with the applicator. The Smoothing Cream concealer feels greasy and don't feel it has the same coverage. "Line-minimizing" seems to be better with the Doublewear too.
As I get older my skin shows the damage from childhood sunburns and I need a product that covers these blemishes and stays in place under my make-up. After receiving a free trial of this with a previous purchase, I was surprised at how well it worked, so I purchased it and use it every day. A tiny dab is enough for coverage so it will last a long time. It really does what it promises.
i got this because the description says it helps with the puffiness under the eyes. i did not have much luck with that. Even with the concealer my eye bags are very noticeable. It does not work any different than any over concealer i have used cheap or expensive. Wish these came in trial sizes too.
I bought this based on many reviews but after having the light shade for about a month the color turned grey...literally light grey. I had to throw it away and definitely didn't get my money's worth from it. Not sure what happened but will not buy again. Coverage was okay but not HG status.
I love this product. I have tried so many concealers and I think the secret to this one is how smoothly it glides on. It also conceals so much better then any other. Under the eyes it actually conceals dark circles and imperfections. Does not cake under the eyes! I actually ordered a supply so I never run out!
Best For both maximum and sheer coverage application, all day wear, cost-effective, variety of shades offered
Whether you need maximum coverage like me or sheer coverage, this product delivers! When applied, for maximum coverage, I allow it to air dry under my eyes for several seconds, no more than 30-45, and it covers my dark circles as though they were never there. For sheer coverage elsewhere on my face, a spot here, a dark spot there, apply and smooth on the surface immediately.
Such a versatile coverage product! My cosmetic bag just got a whole lot lighter!

This was my exclusive concealer for many years, then I became disabled and unable to get to stores that featured Estee Lauder product. Now, years later, I have found them online where I can order ALL my favorites again, with free shipping and returns, as well. I am thrilled to find this awesome concealer again, the only one I have found that actually heals as well as I hides (it's the cucumber ingredient, folks!). This is such a good, long lasting and easy to use product and never "shows."
I have used this concealer for over 20 years. I was seriously distressed when I found that it was not available for order this past year. I am so happy that this concealer is back on the market. PLEASE do not discontinue this product. It is by far the best concealer on the market.
