Touche Veloutee- SO worth the money!!
Firstly, Id just like to start off by saying, Im always a little apprehensive in believing reviews but as this one had been particularly raved about I decided to give it a try. I can confirm that my caution was completely un-needed. This pen is an absolute GOD SEND!! I've tried every concealer/highlight pen under the sun, high end and low end (MAC, YSL touché éclat, collection, max factor). NONE are as good as this. Most concealers are good at hiding dark circles these days- but they're all quite thick, and if they're thin they don't do anything. However, this one is like silk going on (nothing like it-such nice texture),also thin but gives a load of coverage. Lasts a good 9 hours. Blends well and looks so natural (great in daylight too). Never looking dry or cakey- perfect for that dewey no makeup makeup look that everyone seems to be going for lately. Like somebody said below, I too would recommend this over the YSL touché éclat too, if your thinking about buying the YSL one, you really just need to go straight for this one as it is SO much better in every way. Ive honestly never tried a pen like it and i don't think ill find one like it again! I shall defiantly be recommending to everyone. Cant tell you how worth the price this is!

With more coverage than your average light reflecting concealer, this amazing product goes everywhere with me. I have inherited awful dark circles and while this doesn't completely hide them, it certainly brightens and makes me look like I have had eight hours sleep.

Repurchased a second time
This is pricey, but if you want a very good brightening concealer then this is your product!
The lady who owns By Terry also created the YSL Touche Eclat, but if you want my advice, don't bother with the YSL version, go straight to the horses mouth (or brand in this case) and buy this!
The packaging is insanely gorgeous and the product inside is very pigmented and does a REALLY great job of making you look like you had sleep and are more awake than you really are. I have eye bags, and nothing that I can use will take them away, but if I put some of this concealer JUST on the dark shadows then it really does improve the situation. I apply it to my nasolobial folds too (the lines that run from your nose to the corners of your mouth) to make them look a little less harsh.
I find that this concealer can cover up minor imperfections and is a great tool to tote around with you - the kind of after work pick me up that works really well just before you nip into town for drinks. ;-)
Many pens like this (including YSL's actually) are a lot sheerer and work at highlighting features, but this does a decent job of concealing with a thin but pigmented formula AND it does a super duper job of brightening up your skin too. You don't need much at all and as far as magic wands go...nothing has come closer than this yet.
