gruveechik that's an amazing difference !
Tushka_BeLLa Touche Eclat only come in 2 tones (#1 and #2).
When I talked to the SA about them she said that #2 is the one for asian skin tones. #1 is for everyone else was the impression I got, in any event it's the one I use

^ when i get pimples it works well to cover it up - ditto for any scarring...
but i don't get a lot of acne.

i'd check out their site about acne coverage/scarring as my issue is the mad hyperpigmentation.

^^ ok let's see..
i still vouche for the Cream foundation as superior coverage.. IF you need it.
If you only need under your eyes and on some dark, then use the Cream Foundation there and either the PowderFX or MatteFX on the rest of your face.

If you need only light coverage - then you can use the Natural FX (which is more like a liquid foundation rather than the cream compact) where you need it and the Powder FX everywhere else.

Here's info on PowderFX and MatteFX --- i don't use either b/c i have very dry skin and as you saw, i need heavy coverage.

http://www.coverfx.com/products/index.html
then click on the product you want to see




A nutrient-rich, mineral powder foundation, which was developed for the most sensitive skin, and is recommended by leading dermatologists. Available in a global shade palette of 14 shades.

  • Normal to Oily and Combination skin types
  • Acneic and Sensitive skin types
  • Effortless sheer to moderate coverage



  • Wax-free, Oil-free and inert to bacterial growth…ideal for acne prone skin. Non-clogging to pores.
  • Fragrance free to reduce allergic reactions and irritation.
  • Minerals are magnetic and flat in shape to obtain smooth looking, moderate coverage while resulting in longer wear.
  • Low oil absorbing mineral beads provides a matte appearance without drying out skin.
  • Silicone and emollients provide a soft and creamy feel on skin

Corn starch and silica microsponges absorb excess oil and sebum continuously throughout the day, while reducing oil and achieving a matte shine-free complexion.

I heard that hemorrhoids salve works wonders, especially if your under eye area is a bit puffy and swollen.
I haven't tried that myself, though.

homemade tips
this should be in household recipes.. but this is specifically for dark circles under eyes.

has anyone ever tried one of these tips?

http://www.fatfreekitchen.com/beauty/eye-care.html

Dark Circles Under Eyes, Dark Eye Circles Remedy
  1. Drink at least ten glasses of water everyday.
  2. Dark Circles under eye are generally due to a lack of sleep, fatigue, stress, deficiency or some disease. Take all precautions to avoid strain on the eyes.
  3. Eight hours of sleep is a must for all of us, specially for people having dark circles under their eyes.
  4. Close your eyes and cover eyelids with slices of raw potato or cucumber for 15-20 minutes. Wash with warm water and apply a cream.
  5. Grate a cucumber, squeeze to take out its juice and refrigerate. Make a mixture of lemon juice, lanolin cream and cucumber juice and apply around the eye for 10-15 minutes.
  6. Dip some cotton in a 1:1 mixture of potato and cucumber juices. Put the cotton on your eyelids and keep for 20 minutes. Wash your eyes with cold water.
  7. Apply a mixture of lemon and tomato juice (equal parts) on the black circles 2 times a day.
  8. Apply a paste of turmeric powder with pineapple juice for dark circles under the eyes.
  9. Apply crushed mint around the eye.
  10. Massage with almond oil under and around eyes at bed time daily for 2 weeks and see the improvement. Almond helps to remove dark circles, and is an excellent "skin food".
  11. Remove cream applied around the eye after 10 min. No cream should be left on the skin around the eyes for long periods.
  12. Rub the area with a powdered Vitamin E capsule and wipe off with a mixture of honey and egg white.
  13. Put hot and cold clothes alternatively under eyes for 10 minutes. Then apply some almond oil on the dark surface before going to bed.
  14. The acupressure point for eyes is on the mount below the index finger of your palms. Pressing this mount may help.
Puffiness of Eyes:
      • Apply vitamin E or olive oil.
      • Tie some potato grates in a cloth and place over eyes for about 20 minutes.

For better Vision:
  • Eat vegetables and fruits rich in vitamin A.
  • Immerse carrot leave in hot water and leave for a few minutes. Drink the liquid 3 times a day before meals.
  • Dip cotton balls in rose water or cold water and keep under the eyses for 10 minutes.
  • Take Ginkgo.
  • Try chamomile tea bags cooled over eyes.

Aww well you found a perfect solution to the problem, thats allways something - I have a friend who suffers from hyperpigmentation (and I know I'll be doing her wedding make-up when that day arrives..I'll have to get a hold of some of that Cover FX in her colouring..to bad it can only be bought in the US and Canada..)

Satin chic try and do a search on hemorrhoid salve - I remember reading some posts saying that long term use of it will make the skin under your eyes thinner and make bloodvessels more visible = make you blue/dark under your eyes

I use number 2, I have gemma ward skin also... Number 1 I found was a pinkish bass, where as my skin tone is more yellow based... Which is what number 2 is. It works for me... I hope it is the one I am supposed to be using...?!

I just try to sleep longer (8 - 10 hours) for a fre days, then they go away. (If I get less than 5 hours of sleep, I look like a ZOMBIE in the morning! lol)

Yeah, I think sleep is the best prevention and remedy. I find going to sleep earlier almost matters more than sleeping longer, but I guess being "well rested" in general ^^
