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 !! :-))))
I have this in 01 beige pastell. I am pale but still it seems to be too light. It does not cover bluish tones so well either.It looks strange under my eyes. If I pick a darker one it goes far too dark. They should have some shade between.
Positive things abaut this product are that it is moisturizing, longlasting and it has a hygienig package.
LOVE LOVE LOVE this Concealer.
I have really oily skin and it is by far the best one I have tried.
The colors are great...I use Porcelaine I in winter and Clair II
in the summer.
Even after a long hot day, it stays put!
When I complain to people about my pesky zits...they usually laugh
and say "where?"...that's when I know I will never be without this product!!
