I've seen this little concealer tube mentioned in a few of other blogs as a favourite or HG item. It's so true -- I fell in love with it from the first time I tried it!
So, what is a tinted eye roll? Basically, it is a small tube that has a metallic roller ball on top and contains some very fluid eye concealer inside. The metallic roller ball is supposed to be cooling and massaging and refresh your tired eyes, while the concealer fluid moisturizes your eye area and covers your dark undereye circles. Caffeine and lemon extract are supposed to stimulate your skin and reduce the appearance of fatigue. A cup of coffee for your undereyes?!? Bit of unbelievable and unreal concept, no?
At first, I was very skeptical about the product. Surely it can't do everything it promises, I thought. Good enough, if it matches my skintone even remotely and doesn't scream "I've done a hard concealing job" to every passer by.
The fact is, it does everything it promises and and even more. While I can't really tell about the positive effects of caffeine, because I have a ritual of using an undereye cream before makeup, the roller ball feels very nice against my skin, although it is not a blending tool, I still need a brush or a finger to blend the concealer wholly.
Once blended, it is quite unnoticeable against my skintone (I use the "Fair" version for my NC15 skin) and really helps to make those dark undereye circles vanish. It's not mentioned in the product description, but it must contain some illuminating particles. The best part is, that once set, it doesn't move anywhere for the whole day and it doesn't emphasize those little undereye wrinkles like some of the concealers do. Believe me, it's one of the best undereye concealers I've ever tried and I have tried quite a few!
I think that it is more than you can expect from a drugstore product. So thumbs up!
The price of this should be around eur 10. I bought it for eur 9.95, but I've seen it being sold for eur 7 to eur 13. Go figure... Anyway, it's totally worth it.

Garnier Caffeine Garnier Caffeine Anti-Dark Circles 2 in 1 Tinted Eye Roll-on on juba mitmetes blogides kuulsust kogunud. Sellest on saanud ka minu lemmiktoode, sest umbes 10 euro eest, mis selle silmarulliku eest välja käia tuleb, täidab see nii niisutava-värskendava silmakreemi kui peitekreemi ülesandeid. Kasutan alati enne meikimist ka silmakreemi, seega niisutusomaduste kohta ei oska kommenteerida, ent silmaaluste peitekana on Garnieri toode küll suurepärane! Märkamatu, püsib hästi, ei rõhuta kortsukesi ... Soovitan!
