I've been using this product for YEARS and won't be without it (and I'm over 54 and definitely have little crinkles under my eyes). I'm thinking you might be using too much if you're not pleased with the end result. You are so right that it is very concentrated and a teeeeeeeny bit goes a long way in covering dark circles as well as other facial little issues. What you might try is using less of the Effacernes (after using your eye serum/cream.....whichever or both) and after applying the rest of your foundation, using a very small brush, tapping off the excess, and using a finishing powder like Bare Escentuals "Mineral Veil" or another similar very light product in that little area under your eyes (in case the finish is too emolient). Another idea would be to put a dab of your eye cream on the top of your non-dominant hand (for me this would be my left hand as I'm right handed), add a dot of the Effacernes to it, blend with the ring finger of your other hand and dab on to apply. You're right. You shouldn't have to be using two different concealer products for the same area. I use eye serum and cream, then apply Effacernes and even use subtle eye liner under my eyes. Depending on the humidity and any other factors of life, sometimes I need to use a teeny hush of finishing powder which does NOT settle into the little lines and it looks fantastic as well as lasting until I take it off. I absolutely LOVE the finish and natural look. It makes me look well rested and provides complete coverage without settling into any lines. For me the secret is just finding the right amount to use. Hope this helps! Good luck!

Have you tried put a small amount on your hand and rubbing it just a little before you apply it to your face? I was told to do that by a Lancome salesperson and I never have that problem. I hope this helps you.
