Effacernes is a pretty good concealer. It is easy to blend and stays put all day. It stays on through everything, not budging one bit. It doesn't crease or settle into fine lines, either. I was really worried it would crease, as with all other concealers I had used, but it didn't. Even when I layered it! I found a good color match, too. However, it doesn't have enough coverage for my underye area. My circles were only brightened a bit. I think this would be a great concealer for people with lighter dark circles. As for myself, I'm going to give the Maquicomplet a try. Effarcernes is $22 at Macys and Nordies.
I don't usually go for Lancome products but this is the exception. I love this creamy, longwearing concealer. Paula Begoun said effacernes is one of her top concealers ever and I can see why! The shades are minimal but they really seem to blend right in (unlike some concealers that just sit on top of the skin). I still can't believe I can wear this all day in 85 degree heat and it doesn't crease. It just does not move!
I have been using this on my dark undereye circles for years. After reading all the reviews here, I decided to check out some other concealers - Benefit, Sue Devitt, Shiseido, Almay, Prescriptives Camo Kit, and Maquicomplet. I must report that I have returned or trashed all of them and am back to my trusty Effarcenes. I like the light, creamy texture that blends so easily (no pulling necessary) and never creases. If only it provided a little better coverage, it would be perfect.

This is the best concealer I have ever used - its softening so good for under eyes, concentrated and long lasting. The packaging is hygenic and it lasts forever - it IS $$$ but I figure I would rather buy something that works and lasts than waste my $ on cheap products that I have to replace all the time. The first time I wore this, I got lots of compliments on how 'beautiful' i looked. Whether it was the concealer or a momentary lapse in vision who knows?
I'm on the fence about this concealer. Maybe because I'm getting a bit older, I've used this for years but I haven't recently been happy with it. I only use it for my undereye circles and it doesn't completely cover them. It also does not last all day. I like the texture because it's creamy but dries so it doesn't cause your makeup to run and it doesn't crease. HOwever, at the end of the day I look like I'm wearing almost nothing. I'm nearing 30 so I think it's time to find something with more coverage...
This is one of the best, if not the best concealers I have discovered. It has superb coverage for dark circles. It doesnt cake or accentuate lines around the eyes. It also lasts a long time. It is quite expensive, but worth the $$ imo.
YES YES. This is the cover-all-your-uglies concealer that every girl needs. I use this daily on pimples, zits, under eyes, scars and anything i can imagine covering. It covers immaculately and stays put until you take it off. This is a must get for all girls with oilier skin types that find most concealers slide off.
I very nice concealer. It covers dark circles perfectly, and lasts for a long time. I have nr1 in beige pastel.
I've been having sleeping problems lately, and the circles under my eyes are getting darker -I've them already genetically- and after ages without using concealers I decided to give effacernes a try (mainly after all the raves in here). I used it on Monday, and a colleague immediately asked me: "did you sleep better last night?, you look so nice today" So, I guess that's says it all !! :-))))
