Good concealer for dark circles?

I went to the Bobbi Brown counter (had heard good things about their concealer) but they try and sell you a two-stage (i.e. two products) concealer. I'm sure it's excellent but my make-up routine is minimal and super-speedy!

I need something quick and effective for dark circles that make my eyes look tired even when I've had lots of sleep (genetic)!

Thanks in advance for any product recommendations.

I use Benefit Erase Paste, having not got on with the Bobbi Brown one. A professional make-up artist had used the Bobbi Brown on me and it looked like I'd been airbrushed, but I've never got the same results myself.

I get a lot of stuff from Benefit and was told by them that Erase Paste is better for me than Boing! I do use a Bobbi Brown concealer brush to apply it though.

The new Nars concealer is amazing. It last all day too.

Benefit boing and then ooh la lift on top works a treat, or Avon have a fab one too!

Have used Nars for years, love it, don't go out without it. Makes me look less tired.

I use the Bobbi Brown corrector and then Clinique Airbrush concealer - this combination works for my dark circles - it is a bit more of a faff but you get a better finish and it lasts longer than concealer alone.

I use an autograph at marks and spencers pen thing. It's about £10 and I think it works really well!

I have terrible dark circles and have tried lots of products my favourite is benefit erase paste and always look so much better with it on.

I needed one recently and was torn between the Nars one that is raved about and the new Benefit one, called Fake Up. In the end I bought the Benefit because I was in Boots and it was there.

It's really nice, it conceals and moisturises in one go. Very creamy and easy to apply and blend.
