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. It's a revelation grin

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

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

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.

Erase pâté by benefit.

Paste paste! Not pate

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!

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.

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.

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.

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

At 40 I graduated from Touché Éclat to Bobbi Brown.
