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:http://www.clinique.co.uk/product/1588/4769/How-to-Guide/AM/All-About-Eyes?77tadunit=e96f9bf6&77tadvert=78027093060&77tkeyword=clinique%20all%20about%20eyes&77tentrytype=s&cm_mmc=ppc-_-77agency-_-brand-_-clinique%20all%20about%20eyes&gclid=Cj0KEQiA4LCyBRCY0N7Oy-mSgNIBEiQAyg39tkmPD6tmc_7A2--WJLV8Sp_5KohoIESWDOsDyXIog24aAnPg8P8HAQ
and I also like a concealer pen, its light enough to not go cakey:
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:
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.
