I am the worst sleeper lately. I've just been sitting in bed every night praying for sleep and it barely ever happens. It's a combination of factors (I'm guessing the caffeine from all the green tea I've been drinking isn't helping...) but it's making me very cranky and it's also giving me major dark circles under my eyes. It is not good. So needless to say, right now a great under eye concealer is an absolute must. And for the past week or so, the one I've been turning to is Smashbox's Camera Ready BB Cream Eyes. It's technically a 5-in-1 product that helps to hydrate, protect, perfect and correct WHILE concealing under eye circles, so it's kind of a like a super concealer that goes above and beyond the call of duty. And I LOVE it as a concealer. It's a little thick so you have to make sure to blend it enough or it's too obvious, but once you do that, it covers the worst dark circles amazingly well. And I like the fact that it has other benefits as well so it isn't just a concealer. I also like the twist-up brush applicator because I feel like it lets me waste less product (I have no actual proof of this, but I've used enough products in my life to get a pretty fair estimation of things like this. Call it a makeup hunch). At $25, it's mid-priced for concealers - maybe a little on the high end - but since you're only using it under your eyes, it should last a long time. Definitely a great addition to my morning routine (although I'm counting the days until I can sleep more and don't need it as much!) New moms especially should check this one out!
