Not worth the hype – Clinique Even Better Eyes Dark Circle Corrector

Clinique  Even Better Eyes Dark Circle Corrector | Sam LovesThe rep at the Clinique counter sold the Even Better Eyes Dark Circle Corrector to my friend and I as an under eye treatment. She claimed that we would see a visible difference over a 2-3 week period. We were also told that it would help to reduce puffiness under the eyes. The more I used this as a night and day time treatment, the more I became exasperated with it for the following reasons:

  • My main gripe is that it contains a peachy/orange colour which once applied, is going to look like your eye is brighter and less dark as you are covering it with a colour! Not a treatment – a cover up!
  • It sits on the skin.
  • It brightens the eye area superficially – not a lasting treatment.
  • It has such sheer coverage that the blue/purple tones underneath are still visible- therefore not an effective corrector.
  • The metal applicator is designed to ‘cool’ the eye area and reduce puffiness- it will for the time you hold the applicator in place but after a couple of minutes the puffiness returns.

VERDICT
Bamboozled as to how it’s won so many beauty awards. In my humble opinion this is not worth the hype nor the price tag – sold as a dark circle eye repair but is actually a cover up which is so sheer you may as well purchase a concealer instead.

Sam does NOT love.
