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.

I have been using these for about 3 yrs now, originally replacing ysl touché éclat. This is far more superior product! It's one of the only 3 things I don't leave the house without (the other two being Laura Mercier illuminating tinted moisturizer and black mascara), as it makes me look so much less tired (I have 2 kids under 2 so lots of sleepless nights!). I doesn't cake up like other products do and the coverage is really good. And it lasts good 3-4 months (daily, sometimes twice daily use) so good value for money. Totally recommend it!
