    Weleda makes a great cream for cold weather skin, too.
    I need eye cream recommendations. I too have dark, dark circles.

    I have just started using L’Oréal million lashes. It is really good. It’s probably the best mascara I’ve ever tried.

    I don’t have dark circles or puffiness but since about age 28.5 I’ve been noticing wrinkles/lines under my eyes. Even with a primer, my makeup creases under my eyes now and I have to be careful (I don’t even use much makeup, just a light powder).

    Miss Dre, Benefit FakeUp is a good concealer that doesn’t crease or settle into whatever’s going on under my eyes.

    Miss Dre, I tend towards creamy concealers (Nars, bobbi brown) and set them immediately with laura mercier translucent setting powder.

    Another vote for Benefit FakeUp. It’s really natural looking, probably the best concealer I’ve tried.

    I actually never use concealer. I don’t even know how 😐 My skin is very clear so I’ve always just used moisturizer and a little bit of mineral powder.

    I find powders settle more easily into creases. What primer are you using? Perhaps you need to switch up your primer or apply something different around the eye area? Perhaps something plumping or smoothing to help prevent the mineral powder from settling into the fine lines?

    I use Pur Minerals primer and powder. I really like them both, except for this wrinkle problem I suddenly have.

    Are they both powder? I’m having trouble seeing it… if your skin is so good that you don’t need an undereye concealer, then why put anything at all under your eyes? Why put the powder there? What’s it doing for you? If you do need some coverage there, then use a creamy concealer like fake up or one of the ones Snoopy mentioned.

    Most days I don’t wear makeup at all, other than a bit of blush and mascara. But if I’m going out or have an event I’ll use a bit of powder to make sure my skin doesn’t get shiny and everything looks even. I really really dislike having any kind of cream makeup on my skin.

    You might have to start switching it up or just not putting powder right around your eyes. Welcome to aging!

    Under your eyes is not a usual shiny area. I would focus on the powder only on the areas that get shiny (like the T zone) and avoid putting it under your eyes if it causes creasing.
