I’ve been plagued my whole life with dark circles under my eyes. “Thin skin” or some other nonsense. 🙂 I’ve never found the right concealer and I’m thinking that if I have any issues sleeping the night before the wedding, the circles will be bad. What is your preferred under eye concealer? I tried MUFE HD for a while since the foundation works well for me, but it didn’t quite cut it. Or maybe I’m just overly aware of them….

Anyone tried Benefit’s Boi-ing?

Look there! They have reviews of pretty much any concealer!
Here’s what they say about Boi-ing:
“Boi-ing is a cream-to-powder concealer (which leans toward being creamier) and provides almost complete coverage. It blends on easily and layers well if you need to camouflage very dark circles, but won’t last through the day unless it’s set with powder, which can make the under-eye area look dry and cakey.”

I’ve tried Boing, but not for underye circles. I absolutely love Benefit’s Lemon Aid – its yellow and erases blue undereyes like a dream!

I use the Revlon Eye Brightener. It works well for me!

I am in love with Benefit’s Erase Paste! It also does a wonderful job covering blemishes!

You might consider using a corrector in addition to a concealer. I’ve read great things about Giorgio Armani corrector, which helps to hide the bluish tint of dark circles.

I have dark circles as well and did use Boi-ing for a time. I can’t quite remember the reason I stopped using it… I liked it enough to stick with it for about 3-4 purchases, but I either felt it stopped working (new formula maybe?) or that it started to look cakey on my dry skin. Or maybe it was just my tendency to get bored with products- no matter how much I like a product, I always end up looking for a holier holy grail after a few years. 🙂
I switched to MAC Pro Longwear Concealer and have used it consistently ever since. The coverage is great and it never looks cakey or creased. No complaints. Well, maybe one or two- it’s a little messy and the pump design wastes SO MUCH product. But it’s generally a winner for me.

Anyone try Benefit’s Fake Up? It’s softer than Boi-ing, though lighter in coverage.

i love physician’s formula concealer! they have it in stick form and in a tubey thing that you apply with a wand, which is the one i prefer.

Thanks, bees! Looks like I’ll be running some trials as soon as I can collect samples. Keep ’em coming…

Another vote for MAC Pro Longwear Concealer! It does run pretty warm with yellow undertones though, so if you have a very cool or even neutral complexion it may not blend well.
