Favorite make-up product
This is my #1, favorite make-up product. I use a variety of different brands of make-up on a daily basis, however, I will never change my eye concealer. I have used over 25 different kinds of eye concealers and this is the best BY FAR! I have extremely dark circles (allergies) under my eyes. This concealer not only covers up my dark circles, but also brightens up my eyes. I use #2 concealer color as a peach color is great to use for brightening up your eyes. I don't understand how this product cakes or doesn't work properly for some users. I apply mine with the beauty blender sponge makeup tool (elliptical shape, use smallest end/point for eyes). If I could only choose one make-up product to use each day, it would be this item, hands down. Love it.
I love Jane Iredale make up especially the purepressed powders so thought I'd try the concealer as well to make sure I'm not putting anything too harsh on my skin but I am so disappointed by this product. It's cakey, creases and I'm sure it's actually made my under eye circles worse. Would not recommend.
We're glad you love jane iredale, and we’re sorry you’re not happy with this product! We have a few quick tips that we think will help you. When applying Circle\Delete, it’s important to remember less is more. By using a very small amount, about the size of the tip of a pen, you’ll prevent creasing and excess product from building up. Another tip is to warm up the product on the back of your hand to make it more emollient. We hope this helps, and if you still aren’t happy, you can contact our Personal Shoppers at 877-869-9420 or firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange an exchange.
My MUST HAVE
I have used JI for 8 years. This concealer is awesome! I love the thickness and the two tone palate. It works great for small blemishes and sun spots too. I have tried to switch to other concealers and nothing works as well. Thank You JI for making products that don't only work well but are great for our skin!!!
Dabs on and covers so well using my finger or a brush;)
Good but not great
Like other reviewers here, I had trouble finding the right "blend" for my skintone, which is quite fair. It works fairly well for under eye brightening, but I am trying to conceal a scar on my cheek from Mohs skin cancer surgery. I looked at the enlighten product, thinking perhaps it would work to conceal the scar -- but it looks way too dark and orange for my fair, freckled skin. Does JI make a concealer for scars? Given that your make-up is recommended by plastic surgeons, I think it would be great if you'd add such a product! I love the makeup and use all of it -- thank you.
We have many options for you! Since you’re not getting the results you’d like from Circle\Delete, then we recommend trying Disappear Concealer, which is so highly pigmented that it can even cover tattoos. We think based on your complexion description you provided, Light Disappear will be the best option for you!
Won't be without this
Circle delete #2) I did my research and learned how to use this properly before i wrote my review. I honestly love this. I take a small amount and apply it to my under eyes and warm it up with my finger. Don't rub, just pat. Once it's blended in enough set it with just a tiny bit of powder. (I use pure pressed base). I have significant dark circles and this covers mine. I noticed the darker shade actually covers the best on me. The lighter side can be mixed for custom shade or used as a no shimmer highlighter. I absolutely stand by this and know it can work for anyone..
I used to used the "Disappear" which also worked well, but I mostly just need it for dark circles, so when I saw this I thought I'd give it a try. I love the way it covers my dark circles while still feeling weightless. I like mixing the light and dark as well.
I love the Circle/Delete concealer. I have very dark circles and this is the best concealer I have ever used! I also like to use it as a lid primer, it keep my eye shadow on all day. It's a must have :)
A Must Have
This is one of my favorite things because it offers a full coverage without feeling heavy on my skin. Usually foundations or concealers feel caked on and have that rubbery look, but this actually doesn't! Even with the mineral foundation on top. It really feels like I'm weary little to no makeup. I just there was a larger one with more because I go through them so quickly! But overall this is a really wonderful product. Jane Iredale is my one and only.
Just okay. This is the only JI that I'm not crazy about. Perhaps it's just the wrong color. It's "all right" as a concealer to cover up little acne spots and the like, but it doesn't look right under the eye. I also have the "Disappear" concealer and prefer that one for overall cover-ups.
This concealer is really good at covering, especially on blemishes. I do agree with other reviews that it is a bit thick, so that does make it hard to apply well enough. Though with the instructions it does help to blend them or use the concealer on the back of one's hand to warm it up before applying. It does help make the product softer.
Is there any way we could see a video for the proper application of Circle/Delete, specifically, a video that addresses concealing dark circles? I think that would clarify a lot of the confusion as to the dual colors, consistency, and application of the product . . . well it would for me at least.
Hi there, We’re so glad you asked about videos! We now have application videos for our products. To view these videos, please visit the ‘Video’ tab located next to each product on our Web site. Enjoy!
I have melasma and I have tried many products and this by far is the best product I have ever used.
First let me say that I was hesitant to order this concealer, one because it was named "Yellow". That didn't appeal to me at all. Two because I wasn't sure I wanted or needed the darker color. However, I have been pleased with every new JI product I've tried so on faith I tried it. I love that it's in a little pot so you can control how much you use and use it all up! It covers beautifully and seems to disappear on the skin. The colors work well on my fair skin and are not heavy yet the coverage is excellent.
Not what it's cut out to be
People at the Spa that I purchase from rave about this product. Well, this seems to settle into fine lines under my eyes making the concealer look obvious. It does cover my dark circles, but I would rather have the dark circles than for people to be able to see small colored in lines.
i used this for a year then i opted for the other one with many more choices i cant think of the name..i will still use this though...its good for me and my deeply sunken eyes
My daughter started using Jane Iredale makeup after we visited the plastic surgery office for scar revisions. We were awaiting the insurance approval and asked what she could do in the meantime. They gave her a makeover with the JI products. Needless to say we never went back for the revision and having been using it every since. You have made my daughter have confidence again. The she got me using it and I love my circle delete #2. The peach color conceals my under eye circles and I dont have to wear any other makeup over it. I too, agree with other customers that I wish you would sell the colors seperately because I do not use the lighter one. I feel I am throwing away my money for just half a container. Great product though!
I love this concealer! It's perfect ..my only complaint is that they do not sell the darker half separately since I go thru it so fast. Like someone else said ...the light is too light but the other half is great, just too small of a portion so it gets expensive.
It's all in the application!
I just got my starter kit "Porcelain" a few days ago, and wasn't real thrilled with the results I was getting from Circle/Delete. The colors were fine for me (I'm a very light skinned Winter - Ivory base is a perfect match). But I was having trouble dealing with both my dark blue under eye circles AND the puffiness - in spite of following the application tips for concealing both. Also, the more I tried to work with the concealer (holding my finger on the area to melt it in, and then trying to rub it in) - the more chalky and caked up the product got, separating actually into bits and pieces - even using very minimal product. The first time I thought maybe I hadn't moisturized my under eye area enough, but it still happened later after good moisturizing.
I finally saw the light of day! :D I found that using the peach (darker) concealer for the entire under eye area (instead of trying to do the darker color in the middle and the lighter on the edges, as suggested)worked the very best. It perfectly covers the dark circles, blends in seamlessly and hides the puffiness.
Best of all, I found the KEY (for me) to applying this product so that it blends in smoothly and looks smooth and natural. It is very gently stippling with my finger, and not trying to use the brush. I take a very small amount of concealer (using the tip of my pinky finger just gently touched to the surface of the compact) and stipple it across the under eye area, blending it in by continuing a gentle stippling motion (not rubbing!); repeating as necessary for the right amount of coverage. Finishing with a spritz of the balancing spray just makes it all look wonderful. :)
Best I've used....
The gold is great at concealing my under eye dark areas but I have no use for the brown as it is far too dark for my skin tone. Wish you sold the colours individually.
Nothing works better!!
I will never use anything else! It covers up my dark circles, makes me look (and feel) awake and young :)
PEACH Circle Delete**!***
Circle Delete #2 is absolutely amazing! I find there is NO odor at all, and it's like silk on my finger and applies to my undereye area like silk, as well! And immediately - the entire eye area is brightened and it just makes your eyes sparkle!!! Perhaps the reviewer with the thick and sticky and off-odor Circle Delete purchased theirs from someone who had out of date merchandise? I would certainly return it immediately, as I think this is the best concealer I've ever used (and I've pruchased and tossed dozens!!!) I have dark blonde hair with hi-lites, Spring coloring, fair skin, wear Warm Silk pressed mineral foundation, and I have found my skin has done nothing but improve with every day that I use JI's products! Seriously - and I was the 50 something who still had more than 'occasional' break outs....NoNE since I started using Jane Iredale! LOVE THEM!!!
This is a great concealer for the under eye area. I have tried countless others in my life, which were always cakey and dried out my under eye area. This one is moist, creamy, and blends well. I have olive tones in my skin and the Circle/Delete 1 is great - I can blend the two colors or just use one or the other. I'm psyched to have finally found a good concealer that is not full of chemicals and toxins. Thanks Jane Iredale, you rock!
Sticky and colors did not blend
I tried the Circle Delete (in Yellow), and found it difficult to use: it had a tackiness/stickiness, and the colors did not blend into my skin at all. (I have light/medium olive Asian skin). The CircleDelete was clearly visible under my Jane Iredale pressed powder (Golden Glow). It required me to use my fingers and an additional makeup brush which was messy. It made my skin oily and break out. Additionally, when I used it on the tender skin under my eye, the tacky/sticky consistency of the concealer did not allow it to blend in. But what was most frustrating was that, since I wear glasses, there was a visible yellow line of concealer where the glasses rested on my face. If you are looking for a Jane Iredale concealer, try their ZapHide. I LOVE the ZapHide (in medium). It is super easy to use, not messy at all, creamy, and blends in perfectly!
just dab it on lightly with your pinky, and right after moisturizing....it is awesome! I found that if I use too much, it will cause creases...but if I use the "less is more" adage, as you should with all makeup, it works wonders!!
Great for my age
I am 57 and this is by far the very best concealer I have ever used. It restores life to my undereye shadows and makes me look bright. Those younger than me will not be disappointed at all!
I am really smell sensitive and there is no offensive smell. I'm really skin sensitive and this does not irritate my skin at all. This is great for under eye and lid primer if you use sparingly and don't over-apply. This is also effective for concealing blemishes if you use a stippling technique layering with only a tiny amount at a time.
Mine contained vitamin K (phytonadione), which is mentioned in “description” but not listed in “ingredients” (probably was reformulated at some point). Having suffered from severe phytonadione allergy in the past, I was skeptical, but decided to try it anyway, because I absolutely loved its texture and conditioning composition. After a month of cautious testing, I courageously incorporated it in my make-up routine with absolutely no signs of irritation! This suggests that it's carefully formulated, with highly refined ingredients, free from contaminants! OK, price tag forgiven…
I only apply the tiniest bit, which invisibly and effortlessly blends with my skin! No rubbing, no layering, no powder! The area around my eyes appears brighter, but even a closer look will not detect any traces of concealer!
The dual pack is a great idea, but I found it difficult to select the right duo for my medium/neutral complexion: #1 is too yellow, the lighter of #2 is too light and the darker of #3 is too dark! So I got #2 and use mostly the dark half, while the light serves as highlighter/eye shadow. If only there were refills for each shade separately… And a smaller, more portable pack! I’m sure this one will expire long before I use it up, unless I try it as a foundation to avoid such a waste! Finally, a little SPF added to Circle\Delete would make it just too good to be real!
Have used dozens of concealers (I'm old!), but I have to say this is the best concealer to date! If it can take away darkness and restore life to my undereye shadows and make me look bright and perky it will work wonders on the younger ladies! They won't be disappointed!
I am not thrilled with circle/Delete. It does go on really well. I am 52 and all this does is crease up and accuntuate the wrinkles under my eyes.
I did apply loose powder and foundation after applying Circle/Delete and it just made it worse.
We are so sorry you are having trouble with Circle\Delete. For best application without creasing, it is important to use just a tiny amount, and blend gently with a small, synthetic brush like our Camouflage Brush, using criss-cross motions. Also, gently pressing the product into your skin with your ring finger will help it to melt in. After your powder, remember to use your Hydration Spray to minimize any fine lines. We hope this helps you get better results!
it really covers up your blemishes. But the shades are a little hard to match with my skin color and it smells kind of funky. It also is hard to blend because it is kind of thick and sticky.
While Circle\Delete can be used for blemishes, it is really intended for undereye circles. The consistency is thick to help moisturize the delicate undereye area. Disappear or Zap & Hide are ideal for concealing blemishes, and they also have ingredients that help soothe them.
