So not crease proof.

This is not a crease proof product, nor does it "float on top of skin for a smooth look" as I had heard. Within 5 minutes of putting this on, it had sunk into the creases, and actually make the fine lines more obvious. I tried this several times, applying various amounts of coverage thinking I wasn't doing it right, but with the same results every time. It did a fine job of diminishing my dark circles when I applied enough of it, but left the under eye area looking like a road map of fine creases. The texture was very nice, the color did blend very well and it did not bother my skin like some other concealers.

Way too oily for my skin.
Purchased

I have pretty dry skin, so I thought this would work well for me. However, it was overly oily on my skin and smudged my eyeliner as well. It also did not provide enough coverage for me.

Did not like

This concealer actually GAVE me dark circles under my eyes! It didn't go on smoothly, and didn't blend well. I liked the packaging, but the product itself was a bust.

Doesn't stay on

I loved the look and feel of this product until I used it before a work meeting. An hour after applying it started wearing off. I had to reapply it multiple times in the day to maintain a concealer effect. Wish it worked better because the packaging is awesome!

Couldn't get the product to twist up

Seems like the sample is completely faulty. No matter how hard I tried, I couldn't get the product to twist up so I couldn't actually use it. Terrible packing.

Creases!!

Does not help with dark circles and creases so easily. The stick ran out quickly as well I continued to use it until gone hoping it would grow on me. Don't waste your money on the one

Couldn't Sample

I turned and turned but I guess I got a broken sample. I really looked forward to trying this one, I even had my boyfriend try to get it to work.

good concept, product fail

I thought I would really like this product. How ingenious!..concealer with extra moisturizer. Unfortunately, this product just doesn't work. I tried it several times waiting to like it and it continued to disappoint. It goes on smooth and feels moisturizing and it even looked good immediately after application. However, it settles into any creases and smears like crazy. I am in my twenties and do not have wrinkles yet, but it made me look old! Within twenty minutes I was trying to smooth out the clumps in creases and then the bluish color I was concealing was immediately visible. I tried setting it with powder, still smeared and creased. Good idea, product just doesn't deliver.

This did absolutely nothing

It did less than my tinted moisturizer. It did not hide anything. It's greasy and did not stay on. Well actually who knows if it stayed on it wasn't there to be seen. Threw this out.
