Touché éclat doesn't cut the mustard anymore ......

My under eye shadows are determined to be noticed even with a layer of touché éclat followed by foundation on top.

Anyone know of a good concealer for the under eye area?

Jane iredale circle delete is the only thing I've found to help

By Terry equivalent

MarianForrester Wed 30-Jan-13 21:37:49

By Terry. It's a revelation grin

Currently using EL doublewear concealer. Staying power like I've never seen before! Doesn't budge.

formerdiva Wed 30-Jan-13 21:51:08

I borrowed a friend's Garnier roll on concealor, and I loved it. Didn't settle into the lines like other concealers!

winefairy Wed 30-Jan-13 21:54:32

Another vote for By Terry.

And another vote for By Terry. Love all her stuff but eye concealer outstanding . She actually used to work for YSL but her own product is much better.

Bobbi brown one is great but expensive

Anything By Terry is wonderful! her foundation is the best I've ever used.

Boing by Benefit is best under-eye concealer I have ever used.

staverton Thu 31-Jan-13 11:03:54

Erase pâté by benefit.

staverton Thu 31-Jan-13 11:04:08

Paste paste! Not pate

sillymillyb Thu 31-Jan-13 11:06:23

I use erase paste too. marvellous stuff!

mycatlikestwiglets Thu 31-Jan-13 15:11:18

Erase paste here too. I had a benefit counter person do a comparison between that and Boing for me when I was deciding what to buy and erase paste was far more effective for me. I used to use Christian Dior Skinflash which is like touche eclat but with concealer. That's quite good but not if, like me post-DS , you have proper under eye darkness.

This is my favourite at the moment. I'm sure I read about it on here.

Touche éclat is a highlighter so with dark circles you need something else on top otherwise you're just highlighting them.

I now use a BB corrector first then BB concealer for nights out and stuff. The corrector does the same thing as the touché éclat.

If you want a cheaper version of touché eclait or correcter first I use Aldi's version of the touché eclait most days.

I think the other trick is you need to apply it beyond the undereye area too so it blends in with the rest of your face rather than there being a distinct difference. I bought the above products after seeing a video online where they drew a triangle from the outer eye to the nose to do this but I can't find it. Plenty of other videos on youtube though.

Good luck.

Had a look on By Terry website but probably a bit too pricey for me at the mo, trying to cut back!

How much would the Benefit concealer be?

Thanks for suggestions smile

sillymillyb Thu 31-Jan-13 20:27:39

Benefit is £19.50 I think which is still on the pricey side - its lasts me a good 6 months though and I don't use it sparingly!

MarianForrester Thu 31-Jan-13 22:33:23

The By Terry one is ridiculously expensive, but it really does last for ages. I got mine early summer last year and still going.

The Terry one does last forever. I think I've had mine for two years and use it every day.

IsabelleRinging Fri 01-Feb-13 07:41:14

I use a MAC one in a little squeezy tube (can't remember it's name), really good shades which match to skin tone, also, Christian Dior do one which is even better, that also comes in a small blue squeezy tube and you have to go to the counter and ask them for it as they never seem to keep it on display. It lasts forever. I know these things as always look like I've been punched in the face my bags are so blue.

winefairy Fri 01-Feb-13 10:58:18

Agree that By Terry lasts for ages. Had mine for well over a year, maybe two before it ran out. Lasts far, far longer than Touche Eclat. I was seriously impressed.

HotBurrito1 Fri 01-Feb-13 11:28:02

I use a really cheap one from Maybelline called dream lumi touch. Does the trick.

Taffeta Fri 01-Feb-13 11:30:18

At 40 I graduated from Touché Éclat to Bobbi Brown.

FruitOwl Fri 01-Feb-13 11:40:13

I like Lancome long-lasting softening concealer. It's around £14 and a tube lasts ages!

Mr Light by Givenchy. Such a hidden secret! It is sooooo better than touché éclat!!!! I think it's around £20 but it's honestly amazing

IsabelleRinging Fri 01-Feb-13 12:35:02

I think you should try applying your concealer after your foundation, if you apply before it will just get rubbed off an smudged around when you put your foundation on.

BaconAndAvocado Fri 01-Feb-13 19:17:21

Ohh, that's an interesting idea isabelle, will give it a go tomorrow morning!

MarianForrester Fri 01-Feb-13 19:51:51

I always do mine after foundation. Then cream blusher, dust of powder, gorgeous grin

Well, at least looking better than knackered old crone with young children that I am....

MarianForrester Fri 01-Feb-13 19:52:46

Oh, and then the rest of my make up, of course, that's a whole other thread smile

BaconAndAvocado Fri 01-Feb-13 20:44:51

It's amazing now that I'm middleaged (eek,,sad but true) and I'm 43 , just how much longer it takes to look half decent and the fact that I now never ever leave the house without make up on!!

Getting old is crap......

BaconAndAvocado Tue 25-Jun-13 14:30:44

After all the great advice here I splashed out on some Benefit Erase Paste.

Very very excellent.

Am also trialling some high end foundations. Clinique and Double wear by EL.

Both gorgeous so don't know which to choose! Think I prefer Clinique as an overall brand, it's a bit younger than EL? (I am only 43!!)

Any advice?

GobblersKnob Tue 25-Jun-13 14:53:28

This is the triangle concealer trick. I recomend it so often I have it bookmarked.

This will make so much difference, regardless of what concealer you use. (Though don't try it with a highlighter pen, like Touche Eclat).

rootypig Tue 25-Jun-13 17:43:10

NARS radiant creamy something or other. Can never remember the name but it's amazing - new this year.

BaconAndAvocado Tue 25-Jun-13 17:57:29

gobblers that looks v good, I think there were instructions in the Erase Paste box, which I have now thrown away, so thanks for link smile

rootypig Tue 25-Jun-13 18:00:52

oh foundation advice - try YSL Teint Eclat. extraordinary.

greyvix Tue 25-Jun-13 18:06:27

What do you wear on top of By Terry? I love it, but don't wear foundation, so it tends lo kook white. I have porcelain, which maybe is too light?

justasecond Tue 25-Jun-13 21:45:25

Please can someone link to the By Terry one? I might upgrade from the ysl one I have used since I was 22 (am now 37).

polyhymnia Tue 25-Jun-13 21:56:34

This is the By Terry one
uk.spacenk.com/Touche-Veloutee/MUK200003374,en_GB,pd.html?dwvar_MUK200003374_color=UK200003374&start=2&cgid=By%20Terry

Another vote here for this and all her products. Well worth the money and last for ages.

I'd go into a Space NK and get advice on the right colour and what if anything to put on with it.

JennySense Tue 25-Jun-13 22:18:36

I get great results from LilyLolo's Peepo - it's a powder you brush under your eye.

justasecond Tue 25-Jun-13 22:55:48

Thanks Poly. Its expensive but I suppose not loads more than the Ysl. Will def try it when my current one finishes.
