In lieu of heavy, theater-made concealers, we often prefer light-reflecting, ultra-fine textures to cover the delicate area underneath our eyes. It’s a tricky space, and any formula has to grapple with dark circles, puffiness, inner shadows, and crepey skin—all at once. That’s why we love sleek, travel-friendly pen concealers. Even though the twisting maneuver might be a little cumbersome to master in the beginning, we found three formulas that are worth the click!
Leave it to Charlotte Tilbury to create one of our favorite buildable concealers. The Retoucher strikes a magic balance between its ability to conceal while being barely perceptible. The slightly short tube makes it easy to fit in any bag and the formula is light enough that it can be used to retouch throughout the day.
Terry de Gunzberg hit the high mark when she developed Yves Saint Laurent’s concealer/highlighter hybrid touche éclat, and it quickly became an essential in practically every beauty maven’s bag. Terry’s own click pen is the original formula—but with improvements! Touch-Expert Advanced really does it all, concealing dark circles and puffiness with a paper-thin texture.
Words cannot describe how much we love this concealer—it literally blends in like skin! No creasing, no fading—just flawless, well-rested undereyes. And as a bonus, the formula has enough coverage to mask subtle discoloration and redness anywhere on the face.
