Here is my opinion on all tarte concealers. Tarte dark circle defense is great for under the eyes. Thats all Id use it for. If youve got under eye circles, you want DCD. Tarte amazonian clay stick concealer melts down very fast, super easy to blend out. Dries down to almost a powder finish. I like the stick for pimples, thats all really. Ive got oily breakout prone skin and I find it a bit drying, but I like that for spots/pimples. Tarte maracuja creaseless is a nice all around concealer. Ive never believed that one concealer could do it all well. Quite frankly I think thats expecting too much. If I had to take one concealer with me, say traveling, it would be the maracuja. It is full coverage. Works pretty good for under eyes, not as good as DCD, I sometimes layer the two. I think its nice for scarring, redness, pigmentation issues, I also really like it for pimples when they start to dry out and they have that flaking. The finish on this has a bit of a glow, not shiny. It can easily become matte with a touch of powder to set it. Does it crease? That depends on your skin and what products you use under it. If you use a lightweight eye cream or eye gel under your eye makeup, no it wont crease. If you use a heavy eye cream, all your eye makeup is going to crease or smudge. I find the maracuja concealer healing and moisturizing, but it doesnt make me oilier than I already am. Hope I helped and didnt confuse you.
I just returned the Maracuja tube because the product is too thick and difficult to blend. I purchased the stick instead and love how easy it is to blend. There is a little less coverage with the stick, but still does quite a good job.

i have both concealers, i think both work well at covering, but i find i reach for the maracuja one more, i think it covers a little better and lasts longer. other than that, this is a liquid and the stick is a solid. i find both need to be warmed a bit for easier blending-- i apply both with my finger
