Are you using an eye cream? One with light reflecting properties will help lessen the look of dark circles and open up your eye area. It will also help to smooth your concealer out and make it last longer. Borba makes a good one as does Clinique.
A yellow toned concealer will counteract the blue/purple tones of the undereye circles. You mentioned you have tried the Bobbi Brown concealer, did you also use the corrector? I use the concealer along with the corrector and the corrector is what really makes the difference for me. Maybe you could try that if you have not already. I've also heard good things about MAC Studio Finish concealer and TimeBalm's concealer.
Also, maybe you could try a highlighter under the eyes to help with the sunken in look. Tricia Sawyer's Eye Slept on QVC is getting really good reviews, I'm still waiting on mine in the mail though! Bare Escentuals makes a highlighter designed to open up shadows on the face also, it's called Natural Light. Smashbox also makes a highlighter for the eyes... Photo Op Under-Eye Brightener.
But I hope this helps! I def. understand how you feel about your undereye circles girl!

Right now I'm using neutrogena moisturizer in the morning before applying makeups, mineral powder to mattify the look , I have acne prone and blothy/shiny skin, over that a little bit of benefit get even powder, usually do that first then concealer, I somewhat liked the boi-ing, but the color was too dark for me, so I mixed it with another one, once I ran out of that, I purchased bobbi brown corrector and using that now along with time balm concealer , because its a bit too light for me and blending helps a bit.
rawrrawrrawramy- I'll sometimes use eye creams at night, but just regular moisturizer SPF 30 or 45 in the morning, I've tried the yellow concealers and they just look really awful, even after blending, doesent match my skin tone at all. I was thinking about the highlighter and might give it a try later when I have extra money

my favourite brand of concealer (not green, just regular, lol) is the covergirl one with a blue lid. It's always covered for me!
I find the light reflecting ones show up in photos making you look like a ghost.
Best of luck with your eyeball issues!

Its really light so for everyday use I use it by itself but for nights out I usually wear it over a concealer. It contains light reflecting particles which brighten up the area. The thing I love about it is that it doesn't crease or sink into fine lines.
I usually get mine from fresh fragrances and cosmetics
