Best For everyday use
I have been looking for a non-drying, non-caking concealer for years. Because of great ratings, I was originally interested in Smoothing Creme Concealer. The EL rep instead recommended this illuminator pen. It is great! Covers dark circles, does not cake or dry my skin. I use it in conjunction with Doublewear Light foundation. Since I started using them, I've gotten told repeatedly that I look 25, and I'm almost 40. It stays moist all day, looks great, doesn't smudge my makeup.
I use it with all types of makeup: daytime, going out, etc.
Note: I have mild to moderate dark circles, mild to moderate puffing, and ever-so-slight/fine wrinkling around the eyes. Just FYI.
The salesperson at the Estee Lauder counter suggested this to use as a concealer along with the Double Wear Light liquid foundation. I find that it blends really well and does a great job covering dark under eye circles. It doesn't provide quite enough coverage for acne scars though. The amount that comes out is also a little hard to control - sometime one click would be too much and other times nothing would come out.
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!
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 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 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 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 like this product alot, which I bought in the soft pink. It is creamy, and a yummy color for those with fair skin and dark hair, and lightens up any dark areas under the eyes or around the nose. It is true that the applicator is a bit unpredictable, but, ladies, be creative! Just turn the bottom of the wand a few times and brush the cream onto the top of your hand. Put your moisturizer, eye cream and foundation onto the same area of the hand and use that as a palette. Then you can melt the soft pink illuminator in with the rest of the ingredients as you wish.. Nice !

I have fair skin, but dark circles around the eyes. Because I have older skin, I'm very conscious of anything that makes the eyes look older. This product does the exact opposite. It is so light and blends so well there is no visible look of concealer!
I purchased this product because all the other Estee Lauder products have exceeded my expectations so far. I gave it a Good 4 star rating because my circles and bags under my eyes are so predominant and dark that nothing shy of cosmetic surgery will ultimately rid me of them. However this is probably the best product I've ever purchased to help conceal them. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone in need and I will purchase it again in the future.
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.
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.
It makes face look fresh even if you didn't get enough sleep. It is gentle enough for around eyes. It doesn't work on blemishes. The design of package isn't perfect. Sometimes it gets too much out. I got light and it perfectly matches my very light skin.
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.
Best For Correcting, Brightening, Illuminating, dewy
I've been using this for years now, I have both the light and the pink. I use them for 2 seperate reasons. The light is for concealing my very dark undereye circles (amazing how it reflects the light) and the pink is great for giving that youthful glow that I lost some years ago. I swipe the pink across my cheeckbones above my blush, instead of blush, and sometimes even over my blush. Depends on my mood. It's very versatile! For any woman seeking that dewy appearance this is for you, along with Spotlight which was my very first EL purchase ever.
