The 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.
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.
