Undereye Quick Fixes: Top 3 Concealers

A little concealer goes a long way to cover up under eye circles caused by late night studying and celebrating. Here are my top picks:

1. DIOR Skinflash Radiance Booster Pen
PRO: The clickable pen form makes application super easy because it deposits just the right amount. This is perfect for when you're in a rush to get out the door. Even if this is the only makeup you have on your face the light reflecting formula brings lightness to darker areas on your face making you look like you've slept forever.
CON: $44.00 for 0.05 ounces

2. M.A.C. Studio Sculpt Concealer
PRO: full, buildable coverage. Great for scars, blemishes too.
CON: the formula works best with a brush especially made for concealer. Using your fingers gets a different finish.

3. Maybelline Mineral Power Natural Perfecting Concealer
PRO: Effortless natural coverage that lasts all day + can be found at most drugstores
CON: Fantastic for undereyes but not for dark scars and raised blemishes.

I always have dark circles under my eyes and I absolutely hate it. I do use a MAC concealer and I find using my finger does no justice. I am definitely going to take your advice and purchase the Dior stick, as it seems easier to use. How long does the stick last for?

It lasted me a couple months. It's pricey but it's worth it. One pen click squeezed out just enough for both eyes.

Dark circles are the bane of my existence. One of the few cosmetic items I bother with is Vivier dark circle diminishing cream. I paid too much for it, but I was particularly irritated at my skin one day and it's lasted over a year so far.

The next time I buy concealer, I will have to look at your suggestions. Thanks.

This post could not come at a better time. Final papers tend hit my beauty routine HARD! I was thinking about trying Benefit's Eye-con. Its not a concealer but a highlighter that is also supposed to reduce the look of dark circles over time. I've read good reviews about it on sephora too, have you tried it?

I haven't tried Eye-con but I've heard good things! Highlighters work best in the inner corners of the eyes and on the brow bone.
