Review: Jane Iredale Circle/Delete Concealer in Peach

*This post contains affiliate links.* 

Hello gentle readers.

In my never ending quest to find something. Anything that will work to correct, conceal and brighten my deep, dark under eye circles, I purchased and have been test driving the Jane Iredale Circle/Delete Concealer in Peach. This product is a two part system created to correct and brighten the under eye area and knock out dark circles.

Thanks to the generosity of my ancestors, chronic, year 'round allergies and rotten sleep patterns, I have nasty dark circles. They are especially difficult to correct and conceal because I am so damned fair skinned. Add to the pile the fine lines under my eyes (because old broad) and I have a lovely problem, indeed to solve, here.

Is the Jane Iredale Circle/Delete the answer to my problem? Read on.


There is 2.8 g./ .1 oz of product the retail price is $29.00.


This product is made up of a lot of gentle, natural and soothing ingredients. There are no harsh chemicals, no chemical sunscreens. This product is not tested on animals.


The Jane Iredale Circle/Delete Concealer is a two part system. The top is a peach toned creamy corrector that is patted on first to help neutralize blue/purple toned discolouration under the eyes. Then, the lower, lighter portion can be used to brighten and conceal. This product can be applied with fingers, a taklon brush or, my favorite tool, a damp Beauty Blender.


Swatches of the Jane Iredale Circle?Delete Concealer in Peach corrector and light concealer.

I have been using this many different ways: Under foundation, over foundation, instead of foundation. Just the peach; under, over, instead of. Just the light; over, under, instead of... Set with powder. Not set with powder.

What I like about this product:


  • Lightweight, creamy and smooth. Blends into the skin and stays put. 
  • Easy to apply with fingers, a brush or a damp sponge. 
  • Can be worn alone or under or over foundation. 

What I don't like so much about this product:

  • My dark circles just laugh at it. 
  • Wear time isn't the greatest. I have to touch up, after about six hours or so. 
  • Settles into my fine lines. I have to tap it smooth, then reapply to keep my under eye area looking as smooth as possible. 

I really, really wanted this product to be a beautiful success for me. There is a lot to like about this corrector/concealer combination. It is smooth, lightweight, creamy and easy to blend into the skin or into foundation. It does brighten and correct. Unfortunately, it just can't handle my monster dark circles. I think that for someone with mild/moderate dark circles; say, you partied a little too hearty, missed a little sleep because the baby kept you up or you were pulling an all nighter studying or getting a closing argument ready this could work beautifully for you. But sadly, my quest for my holy grail under eye corrector/brightener continues. I will keep using this while I search, tho. It does help a little and it isn't awful to have on my face. I do find it emollient and comfortable for the skin under my peepers. 

Are you a fair skinned blonde person with monster blue/purple-y toned dark circles from hell? Have you hit upon the magic peach/orange-y corrector of life that corrects them, makes them disappear from sight? (I have tried the Bobbi Brown, it was a bust,) Do you have a holy grail combo that makes you look fresh as a daisy, alert and awake? I'm desperate, here. 

Thank you so much for popping in and reading and have a beautiful day!

  1. Aw, bummer! I was hoping it was a win. Have you tried Vitamin K cream? I haven't yet, but I've heard it's good for that. My fave 'pick me up' product from partying too hard (hellooo, 40s!) is Hard Night Good Morning serum. It's freakin' amazing how it makes me look like I've just had my coffee and I'm ready for the day.

  2. Great review on this! Its too bad that this didn't work out for you though. It probably won't work on me too since I have a yellow skin tone.

  3. Thank you. I think that they have one that is more yellow toned. :)

  4. I have read good things about Cover FX, I think I'll give it a whirl. Maybe IT Cosmetics, as well...

  5. Vitamin K is a bust for me, unfortunately. These bad boys are large, in charge and going nowhere, fast. *sigh* They are entrenched! LOL Thanks for the suggestion, tho. :D

  6. I too have very dark & entrenched blue/purple circles. My hair is dark brown but I am very pale. I have yet to find my holy grail too. It's too bad this didn't work. I've heard great things about Cover FX and Benefit Erase Paste and am going to try them next. Thanks for the review!

  7. I pretty much have permanent dark circles because my skin is too thin, and also on the hunt for my perfect concealer. Too bad this one didn't work for you, sounds like it wouldn't work for me either. Bummer! :(

  9. What a bummer! :( have you ever tried Eve Pearl Salmon Concealer? I like yourself have some lovely dark circles and the Eve Pearl works pretty well.

  10. I agree with Phyrra. It looks too shimmery on your hand to be a conclealer. Maybe you can combine it with something really matte to get a happy medium!

  11. I used their cover up bit it was matte. They would look great as shadows though

  12. You make that concealer duo look beautiful! At first I was thinking it was color makeup! Love it

  13. Quite a work horse of a product, I'd say!

  14. I've been pretty skeptical of pink concealer, I think it'd look all wrong on me!

  15. I'm right there with you. I'm extremely fair-skinned and I have the darkest blue/black circles under my eyes. I think I've tried nearly everything at this point. I'm desperate to find something - anything! - that will work!

  16. I like that it has a pink undertone. Too bad it's a stinker!

  18. I would have loved to have seen this as a before/after on your skin.
