i use artdeco perfect teint concealer and i love it. i don't like foundation, so i only use concealer under my eyes & on spots. as my skin is quite fair i always have trouble with finding the right colour but this one works really well/ doesn't leave any spots behind + it's cheap.

Have you tried any anti inflametry products / products for roseaca (don't know if I spelled that right!!). Invest in good quality skincare / drink lots of water / eat well etc.
Back to the concealer, if it's looking cakey perhaps you are using too much? There is a really good concealer by Becca, haven't tried it but have heard so many fantastic reviews.
Well, I never used to wear any make up at all, but then I had a hormone coil fitted because I have endometriosis, and suddenly I was spotty, greasy and dry, and red with massive pores. I use a clinique cream for rosacea, but nothing seems to make any difference, my skin tone is just horribly uneven, and because I'm pale it's even more noticeable. I shall endeavour to drink more water and eat less chocolate.

I love chocolate though!

Try not using Clinique. That sh!t is toxic.

You are joking! Just yesterday I went to clinique and bought the whole skincare range for spots because they convinced me Eve Lom was making my skin bad! Why is Clinique so bad?

It's way to harsh. My skin care lady used it to clean her tub, I've heard some of their stuff even doubles as nail polish remover I've had severe allergic reactions to Clinique products.

Well, I spent tons of money on it yesterday, and today my skin is peeling. Great. I can't even take it back because it's miles away and I don't have the time. I'm sure people have told me its helped them...I wish I'd saved up for more Eve Lom now.

They sell products, of course they tell you it works...damn Clinique folks.

I only use concealer around my nostrils, damn broken capillaries. I'm always red around my nostrils But i do love Helena Rubinstein's Magic Concealer, it doesn't clog pores too bad.

Can you use foundation insted of concealer ? I've never seen the point by using a concealer.

Foundation doesn't have enough coverage. Good luck with covering my dark circles with foundation

i use Lancome Maquicomplet. it's yellow based so it's great for combating dark circles.

Me as well! I ended up with red spots (not zits-this was like a rash) on my face. Not nice.

I'm thinking of trying the Lancome Maquicomplet. What shade should I get for undereye circles? I have fair skin.

Any advice? I really need it.
might need more yellow to tone down the blueness of undereyes. something like that but im not sure...
