I need a under-eye concealer to hide my dark circles and one that doesn't exaggerate my fine lines
I'm 22 years old and I need a new concealer for under-eye circles. I've tried a bunch but haven't found "the one" yet. Most of them settled into fine lines around my eyes and made them more noticeable. Any suggestions? I've tried "Camera Ready Full Coverage Concealer" by SMASHBOX, "All About Eyes Concealer" by CLINIQUE, "Double Feature" by LORAC, and "Amazing Concealer" by Amazing Cosmetics. I've also tried the bareminerals "well rested" and "bisque" and wasn't sold on either of them for my undereye circles. I wouldn't even mind using two different concealers but I just want something that will work! Any ideas?

I have ridiculously dark eye circles (think raccoon like without makeup on). I recommend the Benefit Erase Paste concealer to conceal and the Yves St Laurent Touche Eclat pen for brightening. The combo is fullproof.
oh, and Cover FX Cream Concealer is also fabulous but it's a heavier/more pigmented look so make sure you use it sparingly or you will get reverse-racoon eyes
Another vote for Benefit's Erase Paste. Nothing I've ever tried has come close to truly covering my under eye circles. I use the Erase Paste first, then I put on my foundation, and then before the products can crease or fall into any wrinkles I set it with a tiny amount of translucent powder. If I use too much powder, my under eyes look cakey.

The Benefit Erase Paste I tried was too much to work with for me. It required too much blending under my eye which, of course, made me worry about causing wrinkles. So I tried both the Yves Saint Laurent Touche Eclat and Dior SkinFlash Radiance Booster Pen. I feel that the Dior makes my skin look brighter, gives good coverage, feels like nothing, doesn't feel tacky and doesn't crease. I have also tried the Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer which also works great for me. It feels light on my skin and doesn't crease.
My preparation: I moisturize with whichever lotion I choose to use at the moment, then use the Smashbox Photo Finish Hydrating Undereye Primer, then follow with the Nars Smudgeproof Eyeshadow Base just under the lower lashes before I use the Dior pen either under or over foundation.
I just noticed this is from 2011. Hoping that the OP found something that works!
oh and Cover FX Cream concealer is also great:http://www.sephora.com/cream-concealer-P376504?key
OMG!! BECCA just came out with a new concealer that I JUST tried on at Sephora. It's the ultimate coverage concealer. Comes in a pot. It is pretty thick (I am figuring out how best to use it) but I did not have a problem with fine lines under my eyes. And normally when I put on makeup I get these 2 huge ones going right underneath which make me look way older than I am but is only noticeable with makeup. so give that a try.
