It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Concealer with Collagen & Brush
The color has changed - What happened?
What happened to the color of this concealer? I am an African-American women of medium (A-A medium) complexion and ordered this concealer in Deep (I think my complexion is very close/almost identical to the Wen model - I believe her name is Aisha). The color of this concealer is substanially lighter than it use to be. I have ordered this concealer in Deep numerous times. I have probably order it, as long as long as it has been offered on QVC (was previously on auto-delivery- stopped because I had so many of the smaller tubes). The color was previously perfect for me. I use this product almost everyday, as both an under eye concealer and light foundation when I'm in a rush (which is normally most workdays). I was getting very low on the product, so when the supersize was offered, I thought it would be great for me.
I don't know why the color has changed - I noticed the color change in a previous "It Cosmetic" boxed set that offered the supersized concealer. I attributed the color difference to the boxed set concealer having an added SPF - I attributed the difference to the different formulation (sent the entire boxed set back & cancelled my auto-delivery).
Now, I see that the color difference was not attributable to the added SPF. To the best of my knowledge this supersize version is suppose to be the same product as the smaller tubes, so the color should be identical.
In order to use the supersize concealer w/o looking like a reverse raccoon, I have to cover it up with another foundation and blend very well. This process takes way too much time and is not cost efficient.
As an African-American women it is very difficult to find a concealer or foundation to match my complexion. The "Deep" color varies drastically by product lines/manufacturers. But, it should not vary on the same product.
QVC & Jamie - Why is the color different? What happened? Please go back to the original "Deep" color.
This has great coverage but is a terrible under eye concealer. It is extremely thick and tacky. You definatly have to set this with a powder because it never dries. It settles into every fine line and appears cakey on the skin. i would maybe recommend for blemishes instead but you dont get much of a variety with color Which is also disappointing.
under the eye concealer
I LOVE THIS I USE IT ALL OVER MY FACE THIS IS THE BEST I DO NOT USE POWDER I ONLY USE THIS EVERY DAY ON MY FACE .
I think this product works really well with the brush. I wish I would have got the lightest shade but it still works nicely. It is really moisturizing and it does not tug on skin to much when applying. Overall I do like this product but I have slightly oily skin so I have to set it with some powder so I don't get oily around the nose area.
I bought this product in Deep to help cover a wax burn mark above my lip. I am African American with a medium complexion and the deep was way too light. Not only could u see the burn mark but the cream did not blend into my skin at all. It seemed like it was 3 shades too light. I don't know how this could be called deep. I have used "deep" in other cosmetic lines (Laura gellar, bare minerals, etc.) and always have flawless coverage. I sent this back. Such a waste.
This is the first product that I have tried from IT cosmetics and I have been looking for something to cover the darkness in the corner and under my eye, and this is the best! Not heavy wearing and also doesn't crease in the fine line under my eye! I love it and the brush you get with it is AMAZING!!!! it has one end for applying and the other to blend.... its the best!!!!! Im a mother of 3 and almost 35yrs old and this is the best product to use for me and you don't need a ton to do the job!
Might as well use putty
I was really trying to like this. The reviews were good. I have had it for a while and just can't use it. Brush or not, this is VERY thick. It does not help with under eye flaws, especially fine lines. It gets caked in them! When I have used it I have had to put eye cream on before and after application. Whats the point?
Too late to return...not what is is hyped up to be.
So far, I like this product, but if you don't use an eye cream first it will go on somewhat dry and make the lines around your eyes stand out more. Also, you MUST use the brush or it will not go on well. The coverage is good enough to use on other areas of the face. I am a YSL touché ecla fan, but since it is no longer available, I decided to try this. It is very different, it's heavier and matches skin tones instead of highlighting. It's an alternative and would be great for someone who has a lot to cover. I personally prefer the highlighter pen and wish QVC still had it. Terry's pen is not the same.
I tried this very sparingly I might add and found it to be too greasy. What's more is my mascara started coming off (from my bottom lashes) because this stuff is so oily and then looked even worse than the bags under my eyes did. Yuk.
Give this concealer a try!
This is a high quality product that provides excellent results. I find it delivers superior coverage for my undereye circles and blemishes and using with the brush helps to achieve a flawless finish. It has a smooth consistency and a little goes a long way. Very pleased with this product and love that it is cruelty-free.
Hard to get out of tube
I like this concealer alright once I get it out of the tube. I find it extremely difficult to get enough out of the tube at once to do both eyes. This is probably so that you won't waste it, but it could be a little easier....I think.
tried it-didn't like it
If I had read the reviews I would not have ordered this concealer. It does not cover, it is sticky, oily looking on skin. I have never written a complaint before but this product isn't as you advertised it.
