this is an excellent concealer, it conceals with using very very little, does not cake and stays all day-everything that you look for in a concealer

doesnt feel heavy or like anything is on my face

- Ulta User

it has mazing coverage, but is still unexpectedly smooth, natural loking, not drying, and not cakey

low coverage

it is sheer but yet great coverage for brown spots, filling in wrinkles and giving a more polished look to my face

- Macy's User

it's very light but great coverage

Great color, no lasting power

Coverage broke down about an hour after application. I was really disappointed because the color blended well and really did brighten up my under eye area, but it didn't last. At this price, a concealer should hold up longer.

Brightens around Eyes

It gives good coverage and easily blends in..It provides long-lasting, hydrating coverage and really brightens under the eyes...leaves concealed under eyes soft and wrinkle free.

Best-ever under eye concealer

Being genetically equipped with really pronounced dark under-eye circles, I've tried quite a few products - and find Clarins' Instant Concealer amazing indeed: I didn't expect there to be a concealer that looks as natural and unobtrusive, and performs that well in terms of coverage as Clarins does. I don't even notice myself that I'm wearing concealer. The "perfect concealer" question is one that obviously has a lot to do with personal style and preferences: As I'm overall not a high-coverage-make up person, I was always looking for an under-eye concealer that looks natural enough to work with light make up. And for me at least the Clarins concealer is the best in this category: It has amazing pigmentation - I haven't come across another product that exhibits that much coverage and is still neither drying nor cakey -, and with me (over 40, and wrinkles aplenty) it doesn't even think about settling into lines. I'd say it rather evens out conspicuous lines and feels quite moisturising. As for application, Instant Concealer applies extremly smooth and even on my skin, and I absolutely love the fact that it comes in a tube which allows you to really pinpoint the amount of product you need (and it needs only minute amounts to cover the under eye area). Colour is obviously something one has to check with the real product, but to give a rough idea: I'm light-toned but not very fair, with a pronounced yellow undertone and blue/blackish eye circles, and I found that 02, which looks pretty dark and slightly orangey (Armani also got that orange right) was actually a perfect match. I would think that 02 should work for light to medium tones and 03 for olive complexions, fair skintones should look at 01 which is much lighter than 02, maybe even a bit whitish, with pink undertones. Overall, I'd say that this is definetely the best under-eye concealer I ever used. It has mazing coverage, but is still unexpectedly smooth, natural loking, not drying, and not cakey. As I got this as a present from a friend, I didn't buy at Escentual actually, but definetely will do so. This is one of the few products i'd like to have around, and Escentual's price is just amazing. <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__translate-span">« less</span>

Best under eye concealer I have tried and I have tried them all! Lightweight, does NOT crease into fine lines and doesn't make you look older. Similar consistency to ysl touché eclat but with full coverage. I know touché eclat is not technically a concealer but it was the only product I could use under my eyes without looking 20 years older. This product illuminates like the touché eclat but covers dark circles completely. For reference I'm nc30-35 and wear shade 02. Incredible product, a little bit goes a long way, my new holy grail!

This product delivers on it's promises!

This is a beautiful serum foundation that leaves the skin radiant and flawless. It doesn't settle into creases and it's very hydrating. Some people have left negative reviews comparing it to other Clarins products. This is a new product with a new formula intended to wear as a natural looking foundation with skin benefits. And it delivers on that really well. I'm not comparing it to anything else other than what the product says it is intended to do. It's beautiful. I'm a full coverage foundation lover but this foundation I will wear and I love how my skin looks.
