I just recently added this product to my collection and I won't be repurchasing. I had received misleading information on Garnier's animal testing policy and that really disappointed me.
I love this product, very cooling when you apply it and covers mild-moderate dark circles. I use this as my eye cream in my skin care regimen (i use a separate concealer, but i dont think i will have to now!)
My only gripe is that I HATE the packaging. I dont know if I got a bad one or something but SO MUCH product comes out. I try storing upright and nothing changes it, every time i open to top the stuff is leaking out everywhere and i barely use half a swipe for each eye because so much product comes out!
Unfortunately, his did not have enough coverage for my undereye circles and also couldn't come up with a strong enough brightening luminizing effect like my beloved Touche Eclat. I would have loved to find a cheaper dupe! Anyways, I think is a product for someone who doesn't have severe undereyeshadows, hence not for me. It does have a nice cooling effect and doesn't creep into fine lines, though.
This product was "stuck" in the begining, but worked after a very vigorous shake.
I was surprised that the coverage is pretty high, if you have only light undereye circles, this is enough for you. Application is easy but not so sanitary. The pigments are not as fine as "real" concealers, it's rather thick, I usually blend it with a damp sponge for a natural finish. Not very easy to blend and cakey in my opinion.
Not bad but i prefer finer pigments.
What I don't like: if I'm going for flawless, I have to use a heavier concealer over this, and under my foundation or tinted moisturizer.
Application can be uneven, coming out easily one swoosh, and then nothing on the next pass.
It's not the best moisturizer out there, so I make sure I use a heavier eye cream at night.
What I do like: adequate coverage for "every day."
Not greasy, so my mascara stays put.
Cool feeling from the applicator.
Doesn't irritate my super-sensitive eyes.
I have very dark circles, and this helps, so that's saying something. Like the others, I've found that swooshing some on (2-3 swipes), letting it sit for a minute (it will kind of spread out on its own), and then patting very gently is the best way to apply it.
This is an amazing product! It's inexpensive, the concealer works very well, doesn't feel heavy, and covers my dark circles beautifully. I'm an NC15, and this matches my skintone better than any other concealer I've ever tried on my under eye area.
The packaging gets a four only because anything that presses directly against your skin isn't totally hygienic.
This is too easy. The liquid consistency is a dream to use, and the pigment is surprisingly effective to cover dark circles and brighten the area at once. It is a must on monday mornings! I even use it down the bridge of my nose as a subtle non-shimmer highlighter. I agree with the others; it's all in the "pat pat" application. On to my 2nd tube now. Love this cheap gem!
I don't have hidious dark cirles, but allergies and working nights leave me with moderately dark under eye discoloration and puffiness. Since trying this, I have ditched my regular industrial strenght full coverage under eye concealer. (still love u Mally but this is so much easier.) It covers well, NEVER cakes, and smooths the surface under my eyes. The key with this is to PAT PAT PAT. Do not rub it in or you take off half of the product. Pat it until it is almost dry and then let it absorb. Voila! Done and no retouching throughout the day/night. Hope this never gets d/c'd.
I originally bought the regular Garnier eye roller, in the green tube. I didn't like that very much at all but I heard that this one was much better. I have been using it for a few weeks now and I like it a lot. I have replaced my usual under eye concealer with this as it is all I need to cover any darkness and brighten up my eye area. I don't really have bags under my eyes very often, so I can't say it helps with that but its super easy for getting ready in a hurry. I have light olive skin and it blends well with my complexion. I also find that the formula is thin enough and moisturizing that it doesn't cake under your eyes like some products do. overall I love this and will certainly repurchase.
This is a great concealer, great coverage and it feels so light on and covers redness too. It looks so natural. it easily matches any skin tone. I really like this product because of the colour, it doesnt make you look orange, pink like most other concealers and foundations. It blends well too, and smells great. It gives you that boost when you apply it. It has caffeine and lemon in it so i guess thats why. it feels refreshing. I wouldnt buy this product again though because I have dry skin, and it makes it slightly obvious that you have something on. However I am abit oilier in my t-zone and when i apply it there it looks amazing, This would really complement normal- oily skin :)
