Ok well since I know I am not the only one fighting bags under my eyes and a freaking out face, what kind of concealer do you use? I usually use Mary Kay cream foundation as my concealer and I have some liquid makeup that I use for the rest of my face but I am not loving it lately and I am 100% out so I am thinking of trying something new but I don't want to spend $40 trying to find a good one! FYI I am very pail and have a strong red tone to my skin.

I use MK too! I used to sell it, but now I just keep up my account so I can get the discount!

I only use the MK yellow concealer & the liquid foundation...but I've got a darker complexion.

So basically, I'm really no help at all! Good luck!

I use Estee Lauder's and love it...a tiny tiny bit goes a long way, so I swear one of these lasts me like half the year: Smoothing Creme Concealer | Estee Lauder Official Site

I switched to MK when I was pregnant with Karlee cuz it was hte only face wash that didn't freak my skin out! Not so lucky this time. I wash my face and then it is covered in a rash

I have acne scars and I swear only my Dh and maybe my Mom actually know about them. I use a Revlon cover stick, its part of the photo finish line I think. Works amazing and is only about 11-12 bucks Canadian. Over it I use Cover girls basic liquid foundation for sensitive skin. Again, only like 8 or 9 bucks. I don't use the fancy stuff, most of it has too much crap and fragrance in them. A good primer would help with coverage too.

And I am also I lovely shade of WHITE. Lol. I have red undertones as well. Green tinted primer might help balance your skin if you can find a good brand.

I use Loreal True match powder foundation for daily use and Clinique balanced liquid foundation when I go out on special occasions. I have dark olive toned & oily skin...soI've always got to hunt for darker shaded stuff that doesn't leave a sheen! No help here either. But the clinique brand seemed to be the only liquid one that didn't mess with my oily skin. Its pretty mild. I've recently started using Origins skin care products and they are pretty mild too. Haven't tried their make up though.

Right now I'm only using Physician's Formula mineral make up. I use the compact concealing powder as a base, a little blush and then the matte finishing powder on top. It works fairly well for me because my skin is sensitive and other cream concealers have made me break out in the past, but it doesn't do much for redness (my biggest issue is tiny bumps everywhere and a few bigger bumps here and there and it's be okay for that).

I'm also interested in what has worked for other people though, since I wouldn't mind something a little heavier for special occasions or if I do have a day with a lot of redness. I'm WHITE too with pink undertones so I'm right there with a few of you ladies.

I'm really pale with strong pink/reddish undertones, and I'm addicted to Mac. It's not the cheapest, but it's very high quality and whatever you get from there will last a long time. There are plenty of independent Mac stores here, but they also have counters set up in higher-end department stores.

My even cheaper go-to for when I need fuller coverage (like for an evening out) is Max Factor's Pan Stick - sometimes I even use this for concealer under my Mac foundation.
