I have used the Ideal Light concealer since it was first introduced. The pink shade covers anything and everything, and the consistency is light, easy to apply, and layers well when necessary. Unfortunately for me, later life skin problems demanded that I deal with acne for the first time: this concealer helps tremendously and does not exacerbate the situation.
had been looking for something to correct darkness on my upper lip ( thinning and aging,skin, blood vessels showing green). Needed the opposite on the color wheel and this really is pink so it helps better than the ivories that have a yellow base...
This product has made such a difference in how I look. It doesn't take much and things just pop! I use it under my eyes and in the inside corner, my what a difference. It hides my dark circles but at the same time my eyes pop. I also use it on the marionette lines by my nose and down to my mouth, these lines all but disappear ! This is a fantastic product! Thank you!
I love the product! It has great coverage! The reason why I gave it 3 stars is because of the applicator. I read other reviews and I agree with them: the product comes out all at once or nothing at all. You can't control the amount of product you get! Other than that, i love the product.
I love this concealer! It applies easily and I just lightly smooth it out with a fingertip. I was worried at first that it was too light for my skin, but it dries to a shade that blends just right. You turn the base to get the product flowing. Be careful the first time, don't turn too fast... it takes a few seconds for the product to get to the brush.
I had never used a concealer/highlighter but felt it was time to hide some dark circles under my eyes. This product is excellent! It hides the circles and highlights the eye area well. I highly recommend this product.
I use Illuminator not only to highlight brows & cheekbones and dab under the undereye area (just under lower lashes only, not onto under eye circles), but also to de-emphasize certain areas. I apply it on the side of the nose down onto laugh lines between nose and sides of mouth. It de-emphasizes these creases and makes a very nice finishing touch.
Best For concealing imperfections, brightening the eye area
This stuff is truly amazing, and the best concealer I have ever used. I don't know how they did it, but it works like magic to cover current as well as fading acne marks (that I still get at 40) as well as dark circles and any other imperfection I come across. I use it over my foundation as the last thing before my Lucidity Translucent Powder. I will never be without this product. Thank you EL!
If you have darkness under your eyes and want to brighten up your face, this is the product to use!!!! I have (unfortunately) been very ill for the past year, which has left my skin blotchy with yellow tones and deep dark bags under my eyes. Jut a small amount of the liquid in the illuminator has transformed my face face from gaunt to bright! I LOVE LOVE LOVE this product and have shown many of my friends and family members what it has done for me. They rushed out to get one of their own and are also huge fans of it!
A few months ago, I started to be really bothered by the dark circles under my eyes. I tried various concealers to cover up the issue, but to no avail. After trying Ideal LIght, I was left with a nagging question.... Why didn't I just start with EL? This is so much better than a concealer, it actually works with the lighting around you to conceal the appearance of the dark circles. You need just a tiny bit to make a huge difference. I apply it after all my other makeup, in the corner of my eye and under the eye. Don't need to reapply all day! I find the Soft Pink shade works best for my needs. I have already recommened this product to others who noticed the difference on my dark circles.
I love this concealer. It covers my dark circles and puffiness and makes my eye area look a bit brighter. The staying power of this product is just amazing, it doesn't run and doesn't sit in the fine lines under my eyes exaggerating them like some other concealers. I have used other brands that require three products and a brush to make my eye area look ok. A corrector, concealer and setting powder. It doesn't look anywhere near as good as this and this stays all day! I had bought this on a whim at the Estée Lauder counter and have not been disappointed.
I bought this because I felt that the double wear concealer was not getting rid of my blue purple circles. I wanted to see what else the brand had to offer and I was directed to this - the girl said they didn't have many concealers. I looked at the colour range, was recommended light-medium 02 and thought it wasn't right but I bought it anyways. I felt it was too dark, it wasn't working and I was getting ready to return it but I wanted to give it a shot because I didn't hate it. I liked how light it felt, how you couldn't tell it was on and it never settled into my fine lines. I finally tried it with my DayWear Sheer Tint Release and I loved it. I looked like I was or had been on vacation. 3-4 clicks under my eyes and around my nose and I'm happy. Glad I kept it. And now I use it with other foundations and I like it.
My mom and I both use this product. I'm 56 and she's 79 and this is the BEST ever. It's perfect and PLEASE don't ever stop making Ideal Light!! It is lightweight yet conceals beautifully and flawlessly. You control the amount you want and lasts all day. I will never stop using this great product.
I have always had dark circles due to a milk allergy, and have never found a product to make them disappear until now. Three (3) clicks of the dial is just enough of the product to do under both eyes. This is "non-creasing" so you don't end up with wrinkles where they aren't supposed to be.
This works really well with the Illuminating Perfect Primer under it first.
I am halfway through my second tube of this!! I bought a new once when i discovered how great it was not knowing how long they really last. Since this pruchase I quit using any foundation, I only dab around my eyes, lids and nose. My neice saw me put it on and said, oh my that just took ten years off your face, let me have some!! I have fair to medium skin and that is the tint I buy, you will not be sorry, worth every penny....
