I use this everyday I apply on under eyes, upper checks, & forehead, I use the beauty blender to apply to save product and I still find myself buying every 2 months. If your planning on using for many troubled areas then it won't last, but listen it's worth it! I won't use anything else! I love it!

This concealer definitely does not make under eye circles look darker. You should choose a shade one shade lighter than your natural foundation shade (so I'm told) so it highlights the under eye area.

My eyes (skin) are extremely sensitive and dry and this has been really fantastic. Definitely has not made my eyes darker and it has left the skin feeling soft and comfortable.

Wearing a good concealer daily will not make dark circles worse. This one doesn't crease with my oily skin (probably okay with sensitive undereye area), blends well, and a little product goes pretty far and covers well. Helps make the $28 price a little more bearable!

That's actually a good question because most of us use concealer everyday and we want the product to last as much as possible. Luckily, Lancome's Effacernes is GENEROUSLY sized, "0.52". That's actually more than a typical eye cream!!! Very good value, and seriously ONLY a little bit goes A looong way! This lasted me like 6-7 months, and I use it everyday!

I'm not sure why I chose to answer this question because, you know what? I don't know! What I DO know is that it lasts FOREVER. It is easy to keep sanitary as you do not apply the product source directly to your face nor put your finger into it. What works best for me is to place a tiny dot on the back of my non-dominant hand (for me it's my left hand as I'm right handed), use the ring finger of your other hand, dab and gently blend. While I don't know exactly how much is in the tube, it lasts a very very very long time! And I use it for more than just under my eyes.....it's also great for little "whoopsies" and other red areas on your face under your foundation for absolute perfection. I've been using this product for years and love it. Fantastic stuff!

I've used it for my whole face! Lol it's just that good for staying power when I know I won't have time to re apply my makeup after my morning run before work. I also have a large scar down my forehead and it covers it perfect! Can't say enough about this Product.

This concealer is the best I've ever used for under eye circles. I'll bet it would be good for acne scars, etc. since it is waterproof it won't blend in and disappear like some other concealers do. I also use it for the red lines next to my nose and it works beautifully.

use your fingers, apply a thick layer, let it soak in for a few minutes, then pat to blend, also works great as an eye shadow base on lids

It depends what you're looking for in a base! It won't make colours "stick" the same way that things like Urban Decay Primer Potion or Too Faced Shadow Insurance will, but it (like any other concealer) will give an even base colour to your lid.

I just had a lady at the lancome counter help me pick out a color and I ended up choosing Light Bisque. She told me that you have to be careful since most people tend to gravitate towards light colors for dark under eye circles, but the dark will only show from underneath the light color. (if you have a black color and try to cover it with a white color, you can still see the black underneath can't you?) Try to match the same color as your skin, which probably will not be the lightest or second to lightest color. Good luck! :)
