Clinique All About Eyes Concealer Review
Carrying on my series on concealer reviews, I am today going to talk about a concealer which I do like a lot. It’s not my Holy Grail concealer (I haven’t found my HG yet), but this one has come as close to it as possible. Indian women are BLESSED with dark under eye circles. How I wish this was not so, or at least beauty companies start coming up with truly miracle eye cream to combat dark circles. I am a truly BLESSED one in this regard (genetic dark circles) and have also been bestowed with fine lines under my eyes. I usually use pure almond oil for my dark circles. I have a normal to dry, NC30-35 skin, without much concerns on my face except my dark circles.

My Experience with Clinique All About Eyes Concealer:
I bought this product on my visit to Clinique around 4 months back. The SA showed me this product, and told me that this product is especially for “under eye dark circles.” She showed me this shade and it looked so dark, I was really very skeptical. However, she told me this is the perfect and best-selling shade for under eye dark circles in India. This shade covers all types of under eye dark circles in Indian women – from mild to very dark variant. She then proceeded to demonstrate it on me and I got convinced. I bought it, but even now, I am still wondering about the shade.
Now, about the product. This is an extremely good concealer for under eye dark circles. I haven’t tested it anywhere else, so can’t say about that. It comes in a transparent tube with a very small opening. You can easily control the amount of product needed. It is a full coverage concealer, and extremely pigmented. Only a tiny dot of product is needed for each eye. If you start using it in excess amount, it starts looking cakey and settles into fine lines.
The product is very creamy in texture and is a blend of pigment and some sort of transparent oily fluid. The two tend to separate sometimes, so I really massage the tube between my two hands every time before opening the cap. It does not have any fragrance at all. I first apply an eye cream on my eyelids (since my eyelids are dry), and then I apply this concealer. People with oily eyelids may totally skip the eye cream, since this remains creamy, and does not turn very matte. Since I feel the product is a bit dark, I apply it only on my even darker under eye shadows and then blend it with my ring finger. This warms up the product and it spreads very easily without settling on my fine lines.
Sometimes, I apply a bit of translucent powder on top to really help it settle down. It conceals my under eye dark shadows very well as well as brightens it up a bit and is my go to concealer for any social functions. The concealer remains intact for the entire day without need of any touch-ups, and does not melt or make any mess. I am using it since 3 months and I have hardly made a dent in the amount present in the tube. Also, this product does not break me out at all.
Pros of Clinique All About Eyes Concealer:
- Full coverage concealer.
- Excellent for under eye dark circles.
- Covers my under eye dark shadows and slightly brightens up the area.
- Transparent tube, can see the amount left.
- Opening is very small, can control amount of product.
- Only a tiny dot is needed for each eye, will last for a long time.
- It does not dry out my under eye area.
- Blends beautifully.
- No caking, if used in tiny amount.
- No melting.
- No settling into fine lines.
- Remains intact the entire day.
- Does not break me out.
- Available in eight shades.
Cons of Clinique All About Eyes Concealer:
- The shade “suitable” for Indian women is very dark.
- This dark shade cannot be applied on other parts of the face without looking odd.
- May need setting up with a translucent powder.
- May separate into pigment and oil, will need a bit of massage to mix them up again,.
- May settle into fine lines if slightly more amount is used.
4.5/5 (-0.5 for the shade).
Would I Recommend Clinique All About Eyes Concealer?
Yes, I recommend it to everyone, at least go and have a makeover done at the Clinique counter. This is an excellent product per se, and completely cancels out my dark shadows. Despite the dark shade, it does not look odd on my under eye area, especially if I set it with a translucent powder. I was told by SA that out of all the shades, only this shade is suitable for Indian under eye dark circles irrespective of your NC/ NW shade. I don’t know how true this is, but I know that I with (NC 30-35) cannot use this for the rest of my face without looking extremely odd. People with oily eyelids should set it with a translucent powder. Despite my review, I would request all of you to please check the shade, especially if you are going to use it elsewhere on the face too.

I seriously need a good under eye concealer. I’ve been dodging between MAC and Clinique. Will check this one out too before getting one 🙂
Nice Review Arpita 🙂
*thankyou* Sumathi. This product is very good for dry under eyes… And this shade is also very good for dark circles. However if u want to conceal some other area, do check out the shade
omg what an awesome product *clap* …and can see the difference really in the after pic. it does a great job. love to have this *drool*
*thankyou* Shilpa… Go get this gal… If it feels too creamy, u can always set it with powder
Wow I can really see the difference, I use MAC Prolongwear concealer and am pretty happy with the results.
This product looks so good but I have very oily eyelids and undereye area
*thankyou* Triya… Yeah… Prolongwear is a really good concealer if u have oily skin and no wrinkles…
Clinique products work amazingly for me Arpita, but 8 shades are too less I guess 🙁
Clinique is a very good brand for me as well… As far as number of concealers go… I need only one perfect concealer… Still searching for it
lovely review..im too suffering with bad dark circles.. *cry*
*thankyou* Jass… As I said… It is God gifted amongst us Indian women… We are all in the same boat
I have a MAC one, which is pretty good too..After your review would chk this also out before buying the new one 🙂
*thankyou* Nisha…. Yeah.. Do keep ur options open… I have heard kryolan also makes very good concealers… Do try that too if u can… Its not available where I live
This seems great for the under eye area which is usually quite dark. Well reviewed sweetheart!
*thankyou* Lisha… *puchhi*
looks like a nice one…it gives very nice coverage…Nice review dear 🙂
That’s a very nice review *clap* ….Really can see the difference in the fotos
I’ll be following your concealer series, I’m generously blessed when it comes to dark undereyes too! Though this seems dark in the arm swatch, it doesn’t in the after eye photo. I’m interested in trying it.
Hi Ida, it seems we are like birds of same feather….. Do check this one out… My concealer series wont be too long now since many concealers have been so well reviewed already
Oh too bad it won’t be a long series! 🙂 I know you already have an orange brightener, but have you tried Bobbi Brown Color Corrector? I love that one.
No dear… I am not that lucky… I live at a place where there are no high end brands at all… For high end brands… I usually go to the metro cities and pick up a lot of products at one go… My hubby says that I go only for shopping… And thats so true *happydance* … Or else my mother gets me some when she goes shopping….
this looks like a great concealer!! nice review 🙂
Great review! I also made a review of this product before. Its my favorite undereye concealer. Like you, I think the shade recommended to me was a bit dark. I have the medium beige. It looks dark inside the tube compared to other concealers but it actually looks perfect in on the undereye area and realized that though it looks darker in the tube, it is actually the perfect shade for me and I think that what you have is the perfect shade for you. Its not too dark, not to light, it looks just right 🙂 When you use a light concealer under your eyes, it actually highlights it, making it look even darker instead of concealing it. Its not used for the rest of the face because this concealer is specially formutated for the under eye area. This concealer also contains the “Clinique All About Eyes Serum” which helps reduce puffiness in the your under eye area. What seems like the “oil” that separates from the pigment is acruelly the “serum” so users do need it mix it well before using, otherwise, the serum will be wasted when you dispense the product. 🙂
