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....
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.
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.
This is the last concealer I will ever use under my eyes. It's soft, light, creamy, illuminating and it works. I use it in the dark area by my nose and eyes, under my eyes right up to the lash line, on my lids, under the brow, around my nostrils, lip area and any old acne scars or redness. No matter if it's under/over foundation, it blends beautifully and doesn't break me out. I just dab it on my hand and paint like an artist. My skin is extremely light so any redness or dark circles are more prevalent and this product is a godsend. My eyes sparkle and look so much younger. The soft pink and light both work wonders on my fair skin. I use the pink near my upper lashline in lieu of shadow and my blue eyes pop! I'll NEVER try another concealer. It's even less expensive than the other top brands. Love the applicator too!!! Never written a review before but saw the negative ones and had to call them out. I'd give it 10 stars if possible!!!! **********
I was skeptical that a pink concealer would blend in nicely with my olive skin, but I am more than pleased with the results. I've actually stopped using foundation and only use this around my eyes and to cover sun spots. It is very light in consistency, unlike most concealers, and I have not experienced any caking. I just love this product!
I like to use this on the tops of my cheeks near the outer corners of my eyes. It's not opaque and thick like concealer - a true highlighter. It has a soft sheen but is not sparkly. I would have given it 5 stars if not for the click-pen applicator. It's hard to control the amount that comes out - if too much leaks out, you can't put it back. Also, it's hard to tell when it's running out and sometimes you have to click several times before the product starts to ooze out and then sometimes it doesn't stop!
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.
This is a great extra that I was whenever I want to look polished and fresh. It really brightens up dark spots around my eyes and makes my whole look more polished. I have fair skin and use the soft pink.
