IT IS... AN AMAZING CONCEALER!
I went to Sephora to find a concealer that would work on my dark under eye circles. After doing my research, I really wanted the Lancome highlighting concealer to work but it did not cover enough. I have very few wrinkles but very dark circles as I suffer from chronic pain and get little sleep. We tried several. Had trouble finding one that went with the shade of my skin, a medium with yellow undertones and that also covered my dark circles. When I tried this one I was impressed. It not only covered my dark circles well, almost completely, but also does not crease in my fine lines. It matched well with my skin. The shade is Medium Golden. I shook the tube well before opening and each time before use to be sure the oil didn't separate. To warm it up to skin temperature so it goes on smoothly and not too thick, I put it on the top of my left hand and use a concealer brush to swish it around before applying it. I just lightly patted it on, without pulling. It goes on perfectly this way and is already skin warm and blended well before applying so you don't have to manipulate your delicate eye tissue so much. This technique makes all concealers go on better and lighter but with full coverage without looking thick. It looks natural, not 'cakey' at all. I was thrilled to find it doesn't gather in the creases after wearing a while. This truly is an Amazing Concealer. I didn't believe it was possible to cover my dark circles as much as this does. So glad I found it. Thjs one gets a 10!

LOOK NO FURTHER...THE ABSOLUTE BEST!
Best mascara I have used in 30 years. I used it for about 10 years . I did finally go to Loreal (a branch of Lancome) to save money and began using their waterproof Double Extend and it works almost just as well f for much less money.

I'M 62 & SON IS 22-WE BOTH LOVE IT!
That smell...oh my gosh! Heavenly! I can see where some with real sensitive skin may have had problems, as it can be drying during the exfoliating process, but I wanted that. It was not too hard on me though. I love that this does it continue to exfoliate, gradually, even though my skin's use to it. I have very good skin for my age but must keep exfoliating. I do not wear serums and creams for the scent alone, but, I have to tell you, this one is easier to reach for than some. My son has acne and it works for him too. He rotates it with the Thomas Roth acne kit. Doubt we'll ever be without this one. I don't understand the bad reviews.

BEST OF 40 YEARS!
Seriously, like most women, have tried dozens of mascaras over the 40+years I have been using it. Hands down, this is the best of all. It is perfect, to me. It truly is waterproof. I have swam in it , waterskied, snorkeled, scuba'd, snow skied, parasailed, cried, sweat profusely in it showered and it does not come off or give me raccoon eyes. I try new ones out, which have great reviews, but none have beat it yet! I wear contacts so cannot have it flake off in my eyes and this one doesn't. The primer is fabulous and makes my lashes look 2-3 times longer with it, and the mascara on top. One coat of primer, 2 coats of mascara is plenty. I always use black. I use a eyelash curler before, only. I am 62 but am regularly told I look in my early to mid 40's. Long Eyelashes help! I cannot understand, for the life of me , why anyone would not wear waterproof mascara to begin with! Mostly it seems women do not like to use mascara remover...why??? It makes any kind of mascara come off better, keeps your lashes in good shape and from being pulled out. It takes just a few minutes to work. I use the Almay pads and sometimes it takes 2 but so what?! They work great. I never sleep in mascara either. Keeps your lashes from falling out. I am wondering if I will ever find a mascara better than this one? Now have four samples to try; Blinc waterproof tubes, Bad Gal,Tarte waterproof and Elizabeth Arden. I am curious about the Blinc one. We'll see...
