Allergic to most concealers and have dark circles and need to use one

Does anyone know of a good concealer that is hypoallergenic and will not make my eyes tear? I think my allergy in the concealers is the ingredient
isopropyl Titanium Tr or just titanium which is in most of them:(

    Hi Koolkurl, Do you live near a Sephora? I've found them very helpful. If you live near a CVS you can buy any makeup, try it, and return it for free if it doesn't work. They will refund your $$ no questions asked.

    I really like Lancome Teint Idole Ultra Camouflage but it's not right for everyone. It's very concentrated and not creamy. It's very heavy duty. I like it because I have the world's worst dark circles. You need a serious moisturizer underneath and there's a learning curve. That said, I read the ingredients and I don't see the one you mentioned although there's a cartload of stuff in it!

    Maybelline Age Rewind gets excellent reviews and mentions on Youtube so that might be one to investigate. Good luck - I'm very curious to know what you find out.
    2/c Coarse hair med. density.

    I love all the Curl Junkie products. Still experimenting with gels and curl creams. Still hoping for 2nd day hair....
    Every day is a gift :flower:

    I don't know if you found a good concealer. One brand I like very much for their pure mineral makeup is COLOREVOLUTION, I'm not sure where you can buy it, amazon has some products but you can find everything in their online store. I have sensitive skin and prone to acne, their makeup doesn't cause any issue on my skin.
    At the moment I'm using Bobbi Brown corrector and concealer without a problem, so if you haven't tried give it a chance. Otherwise do try colorevolution
    2c, dense and coarse hair.

    Have you tried Jane Iredale concealer? I use a lot of Jane Iredale makeup because I have a lot of chemical sensitivities. The Jane Iredale website says that the makeup is hypoallergenic. They have a few different types of concealers available.

    Some other makeup brands to consider are Zuzu Luxe, RMS Beauty and Vapour Organic.

    One of the youtube makeup artists (maybe Wayne Goss) loves the Jane Iredale concealer.

    I tried Maybelline AgeRewind- Yuch - did NOT work for me.

    You may be allergic to dyes, lanolin, perfume or, petroleum. Also consider your skincare regimen and your perfume. My eyes go nuts about 2 min after spritzing
    Here are some products that may help. If you can find something that is vegan (no lanolin, carageen, carmine (made from stinging insects,) or honey,) petrochemical, talc, perfume, and paraben free, there is a good chance it will work for you 

    Drugstore (not "clean" but less allergenic: 
    Almay cream or Neutogena $,  Pixie multi color concealer wheel $1/2 (cleaner) 
    Ulta, Nordstrom/Dillard's etc.,  or Sephora: 
    Tarte Aqua or clay concealer $$ (cleaner but not perfect,)  NYX in the jar $ (cruelty free and basic,)
    Laura Mercier (don't remember the title, but the one with 2 colors in it,)  Clinique (hypoallergenic but not clean,) or Pür $

    "Clean" products: RMS un concealer concealer $$$( also works as foundation at Sephora or pharmaca,) Hynt beauty cream $$$, Alima Pure (amazon or,)  Juice Beauty (ulta, $$,  100% Pure second skin (detoxmarket and, Pacifica liquid cream  $$ (at Target and,) 

     tip I just learned is to use 1 shade darker than usual for puffy circles and a lighter color corrector, (pink, orange, or peach depending on skintone,) first then regular concealer only at the inner 1/2 of eyes.
