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!

Eyeshadow base?
Several people have said this is crease-proof with excellent staying power under the eyes, but would it also double as a good eyeshadow base for the 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 use this for all over coverage. I love it for under my eyes! I have tried every brand in drug strores and department stores, this is the only brand that doesn't sit in the wrinkles under my eyes!

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! :)

Can you help with the correct shade to order if I use Bare Essentials light makeup?
I don't want to have something too light for the makeup shade. Also, my eyes water daily and I have to blot them frequently, do you think this is appropriate for me?

I have also used the same brand and color shade of mineral makeup you are referring to. I recommend the Lancome concealer in "Light Buff".

Yes, this product will even out skin tone, and my eyes water in the morning, too, but this really helps keep my eye shadow on all day - it's really great.

Effacernes colors tend to be really light. I'd go a shade darker than what you think you might need.

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.
