After finally purchasing the original Garnier Eye Roll on and being quite impressed with how it soothed my puffy eyes in the morning, I was actually quite excited when Garnier released the Tinted Eye Roll. It contains the same ingredients as the original roll one, apart from it contains mineral pigments which is supposed to instantly cover dark circles. Hmmmm.... "De-puffing and concealing all at once" I thought. Sounds good to me!
I was actually just on the verge of purchasing it when I was talking to my lovely friend Marcia on Twitter and she offered to send me hers as she just couldn't get on with it. So yeah... I was sent this product for free, not by a PR firm.. by Marcia. Ha.
I'm not going to go into too much detail as I'm fairly certain you would have read countless reviews of this product on other blogs. Basically I'm just going to tell you about my experience with this product.
First off I am fair skinned. When choosing a concealer the lightest shade is always near enough always a perfect shade match. So I had high hopes for this product as the shade Marcia sent me was number 1 for fair skin tones. I was wrong. The shade doesn't work well for me at all. It comes off rather yellowish to be honest.
I also found the consistency to be really watery. It was just too thin. I don't like my under eye concealers to be think by any means, but I like them to be a bit creamy and give me good coverage as I have under eye circles that need to be covered basically. For me this just wasn't suitable in any way. I'll be sticking to the Original Roll On and using my own concealer.
