I find concealer under the eye creases and goes cakey on me, no matter how I prime or set it, but I have recently discovered this and it is really good for brightening the eye area (I also use it for blemishes, just like a concealer) and staying put. There are loads of similar pencils out there, doesn't have to be that one, but I think it's the waxiness that helps it go the distance.

i had a realisation that i looked like the living dead at the weekend so I sympathise. I agree re under eye concealer being difficult, it cakes and makes me look worse.

I have starting using this and my under eyes do surprisingly look better:

and I also like a concealer pen, its light enough to not go cakey:

avoid the pink shades, go for something more yellow.

For me, loreal touch magique works better than the trillion or so others that I've tried.

Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer beats others hands down for me. Non-drying and highly pigmented. I use a primer with mine. Great colour choice too. You don't need much so it lasts. Pricey but worth it.

I've just bought collection concealer and it's fab and so cheap. I've tried Laura mercier and bobbi brown and it's much better than those for dark circles. It cost about £4 I think.

I second the LA girl concealer

I second the NARS creamy concealer. A little goes a very long way. I used to use the Collection one, but have to concede that the NARS one is better. Also, this is great for brightening/evening out the whole eye area and it's good as a primer for eyeshadow too:

Benefit boing here. Its called industrial strength for a reason.

thanks for this - I barely drink but have ethnic origins and mine is the skin that will go really dark under the eyes....I am 40 and I realised it's starting. Plops. I am currently using Soap and Glory but I'm going to have to get something more highly pigmented.

I use maybelline fit me concealer which is apparently a dupe for Nars. I then put Touche Eclat on top.

I like Boots no7; covers up my dark circles well. I'm using urban decay crayon- style at the moment, but it doesn't give as much coverage.
