I agree about Touche Eclat going bad quickly. It didn’t quite work for me either. I’m rather liking the I Nuovi UnderCover, Revlon Spa concealer and best of all, Lancome Effercernes 🙂

My favourites are YSL Touche Eclat (although some will argue it’s not a concealer, but an illuminator, but works fine as a concealer) and for the budget version – which I actually use a lot more – Collection 2000 (UK brand) Illuminating Touch concealer. Much cheaper and almost as good as YSL.

Bobbi Brown’s Corrector. It’s not technically a concealer, but as I’m pale and cool-pink based rather than yellow, it’s the only thing I can find to match me.

And it’s creamy, thick, wonderful and blends perfectly over powder.

I think YSL’s Touche éclat is the most overrated product i have come across so far. It does nothing for me, not even for my NW15 skintone.

My go-to concealer is definatly Max Factor’s undereye concealer, and i was pleasantly surprised by MAC’s Studio Sculpt concealer too.
And i’m thinking of buying Benefit’s powder concealer (the one in the pink ball), but at the moment, it’s only available at one store in the whole country. It’s hard to be Belgian.

Chiara, is this Benefit Powderflage that you seek? If you’re not too far from the French frontier, you can go in Lille: we have 2 Sephora here and they carry Benefit products.

Anyway, I agree with you concerning the Touche Eclat. I’m surprised by the praising I’m reading here. I bought one, this was a total waste of money. Transparent and hide nothing. It was like applying nothing. Maybe wad is a beauty placebo and it didn’t work because I didn’t believe in it? And I’m NW15 too, so it’s not a question of complexion. But maybe does it depends the type of things you have to hide.

I have blueness and blue veins under my eyes and it doesn’t hide it. I need something different to hide the blue under my eyes. So far, the best for me is MAC Select Moisturecover in NW20 (a tad more tinted and salmon than my complexion). The texture is light enough to avoid heaviness and there’s not that ugly thick texture tiring the skin that some opaque concealer have. However, it is opaque enough to conceal the blue tint. I’m really happy with it. I’m NW15 but I take a NW20 because a too light concealer more tend to reveal the blue circles than actually conceal them. I experienced this with Sisley Phyto correcteur that I took in the lightest shade. Right shade for my complexion but too light so making appear my under eyes whitey-blueish. That said it’s a good concealer because there are plant extract reducing puffiness and bringing freshness.

I have not tried many concealers since I use it (about seven years now). The first one I got was the Dior Long Wearing Moisturizing Concealer and I love it! The shade I use is #520 (MAC NW20-NW25 for reference) I like this one way better than the Studio Sculpt concealer by MAC. This Dior concealer is more of a fluid, like the YSL Touche Eclat.
Whenever I use loose mineral foundation, I like EDM Multitasking to conceal my red areas.

Lancôme Effacernes is really good, and Benefit Erase Paste for me. I cover up things with Effacernes, then I use Erase Paste to correct the color because Effacernes is too white for me.

still looking for my holy grail concealer!! Benefit’s Boing works for me when used in very spare amounts (it tends to cake) and not just for the undereye. I used to love Make Up For Ever’s Full Cover Concealer, but it just stopped working for me. I don’t know if my dark spots got darker or what, but somehow it just didn’t provide coverage after a few months.

I really like Benefit’s Erase Paste for under my eyes and MAC Studio Finish concealer for everything else. Though recently I got Maybelline’s SuperStay 24hr concealer and I love it.

Concealers just don’t work for me – period. I’ve tried them all and they always end up making me look like a racoon or like they’re not there. I’ve been using Estee Lauder’s Eyeshadow in the shade Linen as a concealer – it works great as it’s the exact same color as my skin – I use an ES primer first then apply the eyeshadow over my entire lid up to the brow – an underneath my eye and it covers all my dark spots and cirles! Works like a charm! Maybe because it’s powder rather than liquid or cream, I don’t know – I just know it works for me! LOL The cost of one ES single is $16.50 and it lasts me about 4 mos.

hat cocealors? Everything. I have acne at 46 and I’ve tried every concealer I ca get my hands on. No luck. It’s driving me nuts. I want one that works, but does not break me out more.

I agree with you, I too have tried every concealer of all expensive brands to pharmacy brands and they all make me look older it covers everything except what I want covered, adult acne. I wish I could find one that would cover that. Every time I go to the stores the sales people will say this one will cover and when I get home and try it’s a waste of money. If anyone knows of a good one please let me know.

I’m currently using the Benefit’s Bo-ing concealer #3. It’ working pretty good, good coverage, creamy and lasts. It’s working well for under the eyes and can also covers blemishes.

I stopped using concealers, except for the days when I decide to take the time to brighten up my undereye area. For red spots and blemishes, I simply take a small, flat, stiff brush, swirl it in my powder foundation (currently MAC studio finish) and dab it on and blend. It looks so much more natural than liquid or creamy concealer.

I have been using CHANEL Concealer Stick. Although it covers up most of my dark circles, they can still be spotted. I would give it 4 out of 5. And it’s really practical when I’m in a hurry.

I use MAC Select Cover-up for undereyes and blemishes. I use NW35 for undereyes to combat the dark circles, then NC35 for blemishes. I like that Select Cover-Up is not greasy or cakey feeling.

I like MAC Studio Sculpt Concealer and sometimes I like to use Studio Sculpt Foundation as concealer as well. I also like The Balm Time Balm Concealer.
