I've used the Bobbi Brown one in the past but would like to try something different. I have fine lines and not the smoothest of skin in that area so it needs to be something that doesn't look cakey and blends easily.
My dark circles are pretty bad since having children!
Have you thought about possible causes of your dark circles? Lack of sleep of course, but they can be an indication of allergy, autoimmune conditions such as coeliac, liver and kidney problems... So if you are having other health symptoms, maybe worth investigating? Interestingly a lot of women who develop autoimmune symptoms find that happens after having children (although maybe that's just because they are also getting older iykwim).
Not being alarmist but just thought it worth pointing out (used to have awful dark "bruising" under my eyes before I cut out foods I was reacting too). Saves me a fortune in YSL touche éclat makeup pens!!! It is great stuff, and really worked well on me as I have very pale Celtic skin it blends into nicely.
