Make Up For Ever Full Cover Waterproof Concealer

I am always looking for a good under eye concealer and in my quest I have tried and tested a significant number of them. I have very significant dark circles, probably brought on by a combination of genetics, late nights and just general neglect.
I have tried all kinds of remedies but not even copious amounts of the most expensive eye cream have ever made enough of a difference for me to be satisfied. 

When I realized that my chances of solving the problem with eye cream were slim to none, I turned to the next best thing which of course is cover up! 
The land of concealer, however turned out to be even more confusing than choosing the right caffeine laced eye cream. I had to find the perfect formula that provides coverage, hydration, longevity, smoothness and creaseless ability.
Many were called but only a few survived my cutthroat policies. 

Make Up For Ever and Sephora describe my concealer of choice as;
What it is:
An ultra long-lasting, matte finish, oil-free, waterproof, full coverage concealer.
What it is formulated to do:
Designed to cover major imperfections like scars, hyper-pigmentation  major discoloration, burns, and tattoos. This light and creamy concealer contains a high concentration of pigments that stay put, making it perfect for use on the face, as well as the body.

Make Up For Ever Full Cover Waterproof Concealer turned out to be one of the front runners. Combination of this little miracle with the YSL Touché Éclat results in me looking a little less Transylvanian, if you know what I mean. 
The formula itself is very thick, extremely full coverage and longer lasting than any other makeup product I have ever owned. It has all the earmarks of a dry, caky feel but in reality it's actually very creamy and easy to work with. 
A little tiny drop of this stuff goes an really long way but the only thing to note is that it also dries/sets very quickly. Once it's set, with or without powder, this thing will not budge until you remove it, which is surprisingly easy with standard makeup remover.
Choosing the correct shade can be quite tricky so I would recommend in person swatching to make sure you are getting the correct number for your skin tone. The descriptions below can be helpful but seeing the colors in person would obviously be more accurate, especially for something so unique to your own complexion.

On its own, Make Up For Ever Full Cover Waterproof Concealer is more than capable of covering up the heaviest of late nights with only a small amount required to not only correct but also brighten the under eye area. That's a bonus I can really appreciate. 

If you plan on using this concealer, you must remember to moisturize the eye area since the color pigments can sometimes cling to the dry patches and interfere with its creaseless ability. I find that if I skimp on eye cream for a few days this concealer is a little harder to smooth on and blend in. 
The Full Cover concealer performs equally well on the rest of the face, covering up blemishes, broken capillaries and redness with ease and expert finesse. It really is a superstar of my daily makeup routine. 

The size is 0.5 fl.oz. and since I know how little I really need to get it to work, I feel that the price of $37.00 is more than fair. Honestly I can't imagine using up my #6 Ivory tube for years to come so for me this was a great investment. 

You can get more information and purchase this on the Make Up For Ever site or as usual at our trusty Sephora 

I hope someone finds this useful! What is your favorite concealer?
