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 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! :)

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.

Question
Lancome Effacernes VS Amazing Concealer
I've been using Amazing Concealer for a few weeks now. It is highly concentrated and seems to cake into fine lines. It doesn't provide a natural finish, but it covers up my dark, dark under eye circles better than Lancome's Maquicomplet Complete Coverage Concealer. I often blend them together to dilute Amazing's concentrated formula to make it a more smooth, natural finish.

I'd ideally prefer to use just one concealer. Any suggestions on which one is better?

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.

Effacernes Longue Tenue was a water resistant formula. The product has been discontinued. Effacernes Waterproof is a comparable replacement. The waterproof formula has better 'staying' power.

I actually don't know for sure....perhaps the other product you mentioned was the one which did not come in a tube but in a little pen type thing with a sponge tip? I do remember that, but by FAR prefer Effacernes waterproof concealer over EVERY other concealer out there for under eyes as well as areas on my face. It really is waterproof, moves with your face and never settles into creases. FANTASTIC stuff.
