I have a dark coloration and usually use MAC NW45 for seriously dark circles (genetic/allergies etc). Just wondering if there are any better out there. MAC NW45 is ok but not perfect. For the rest of my face, I'm a MAC NC40ish (NC 35-45).

Hi Olivia ,

Thank you for the recommendations. I'm darker than you though and sadly there's not a good match of Kevyn Aucoin nor Cle de Peau or even LM for me... But I do love the texture of Kevyn Aucoin! The LM Secret Brightener is a good one - I use that one too to set and actually use it all over my eyes. Also, at times I use the YSL touche eclat in the corners.

Nars Concealer is good. Dollbird recommended it to me. Smile

What shade of Nars concealer do you use, Lisey? Also, what foundation shade do you wear for reference?

I'm in the 5s for Alima - something like W5. I didn't have much joy with make-up for ever palettes either. It seems as though I have a very unique problem... Rolling Eyes

Thanks Lisey. Are you W, N, or C in Alima? I'm between W1 and W2. Steffers recommends Nars Concealer as well, so I think I'm gonna have to check it out.

I like Jane Iredale Circle Delete for dark circles as there are 2 shades in each pot (a light & a dark) so you can adjust. I use the peach and its very moisturizing, doesn't cake and really does the job for me. If your dark cirlces are purple/brown, try a peach concealer. If the dark cirlces are pinky/bluish, try a yellow concealer.

Sorry, don't know what all the Mac numbers mean... Smile

You're welcom, Lynn! I'm in between N3 and W3. For Laura Mercier MMU real sand suits me best.
