What I like about Garnier Anti Dark Circles Tinted Eye Roll On ?

  • It is a great everyday concealer + under eye care product. I purchased this in shade light, which has a slight yellow undertone to it. This is also available in the shade Medium , which has a pink undertone to it. Check both the shades HERE
  • It is a roll on, I do like the feel of cold metal ball rolling on my under eye area. It is like a mini massage to the under eye area everyday.
  • The texture is sort of thin. It gets absorbed in skin quickly. I roll the roll-on on my under eyes and then dab the product with the fingers to even it out. The medium shade does not match my under eye area perfectly . It looks a little ashy for first few minutes but it gets absorbed after awhile and adds brightness to my under-eyes. It gives that fresh awakening effect to the eyes. So actually, it does not matter whether you find your perfect match for your skintone or not.
  • It is an excellent everyday concealer . I personally don’t prefer the full concealing on day to day basis. I am pretty comfortable with my little dark circles or a few scars on my face showing. This completely fits in my everyday routine.  It does not completely conceal my under-eye circles but adds a little brightness to under eye area. It looks quite natural.
  • Very sleek , no mess packaging. Easier to carry and you can use it any time of the day. It does not give any shiny look to the under eyes. it sets almost matte. Does not get cakey, not does it crease.
  • The roll on dispenses just the right amount of product and it blends in pretty well.
  • My under eye area does not feel stretchy after applying it.
  • It sort of reflects light and makes your fine lines look less visible.

What I do not like about Garnier Anti Dark Circles Tinted Eye Roll On

  • After almost a month of usage, I have not seen any improvement in my dark circles. It claims to have caffeine, which helps in reducing the puffiness under the eyes.Honestly, I have not seen that claim working on me.
  • If you are looking for a full coverage concealer or if you have severe dark circles, this may not be the product for you. You can however use it as a base for your concealer since this is not slippery and would make your concealer last longer.

Overall, I do like this a lot. However, I see this quite a tricky product. With very limited shade selection this would work for a few and may completely fail for a few. I myself took a few days to really start liking it. That look of ashiness sort of pinches the eye when you first start using it but since it gets settled after a while, you do like the brightness it provides to your under eyes. I do sort of re-apply it once during the day and it is a complete joy to use. :)

interesting product. I did use just the roll on Garnier had and it didnt make any difference to my under eye BUT just for the heck of it, I should buy this one..how much is it?

Reply

Rati August 16, 2011 at 4:48 pm

rs 199 :) it wouldnt hurt much it does not work for you. i’d say give it a try. it could turn out to be very good everyday product. :)

I desperately need a concealer for my under eye circles..though this will not give any coverage for my panda eyes but it does brighten up the area :waytogo:

Reply

Rati August 16, 2011 at 5:25 pm

it does , parita. and you know on regular basis you can use it. It would keep your under eyes hydrated and give a bit of a coverage. :)

Reply

Parita August 16, 2011 at 5:31 pm

Hmmm..now you mentioned so I may pick up next time :) btw I am having very dark eye lids..not sure why they turned like that..these days only I have started noticing..do know any creams/home remedies which can help me in reducing the darkness on my eye lids? I keep on seeing these gorgeous neutral eye tutorial but I cannot do them as I dont think any brown eye shadow will actually show up on my lids :((

Reply

Rati August 16, 2011 at 5:35 pm

use an eye base parita and apply a wash of soft peachy brown color on your lids. you actually have to find a my lids but better color for your eyelids. I use mac soft brown eyeshadow lal the time. :) And apply eyecream on your lids alos. :)

Reply

Parita August 16, 2011 at 5:37 pm

thank you rati..yup I am applying the eye cream on my lids as well..any suggestions for the eye base and soft peachy brown color?? let me check out the Mac one now..thanks! :thanks:

I’m really tempted to try this out. Right now I use Colorbar instant cover up stick but it gets consumed so quickly!

Hi- I bought this yesterday. I bought the Medium since my dark circles are pretty bad and thought perhaps the Light shade would be too light. i was right :whistle: . I have used it this morning and quite like it. I applied Faces Sand Beige compact over it. I must say that I am quite satisfied with this purchase. I will check my face after about 2 to 3 hours and if it ust the way it is now, I will say its a great success ‘cos at 199 bucks then this is a steal.

Thanks a ton Rati. Like you said, this is an everyday concealer and the cold feel of the roll on thingie is damn nice :)

Defy 2 :yes: :yes: for this product so far

Reply

Rati August 17, 2011 at 12:13 pm

that sounds great , Aruna. glad you picked up the right shade for yourself. :) Great you are liking it so far. Do update how it is working for you. :))

Robbie August 17, 2011 at 11:54 am

hi rati.. love d way u analyse products… i have an oily skin so d added shine provided by the product makes my face look more oily … think its a nice roduct for dry skin people…

Reply

Rati August 17, 2011 at 12:14 pm

no it does not add shine. infact you can dab some powder on top and it would be completely matte. :) It does not slip or move so would work for oily skin as well. :)

I bought this one day before in medium shade..does not work for me at all..makes my under eye area look ashy :((
