Under eye circles are something I’ve struggled with since my late teens/early twenties. I want to say they began to first be really noticeable when I started college. I wanted to attribute it to late night study sessions, but they never went away so I guess it was just coincidental timing.
I’ve tried a few under eye concealers over the years, which have all worked fine but I haven’t come across a holy grail concealer yet. Keep in mind, I still haven’t tried out the MAC Pro Longwear concealer or NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer yet, both of which I know get high praise from many. After recently finishing up my Benefit Erase Paste, which took forever, I picked up the IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Concealer.
The product comes in this squeezey tube and I have it in the shade “light”. It is quite thick – thicker than any concealer I’ve ever used before, but it does spread easily. Now that I’ve been using this for a few weeks I feel like I have a good idea on my thoughts on it. The product definitely does its job, but does it completely erase under eye circle or as the name suggests allows you to say “bye bye” to them? Not quite. The product is thick, as I said, so it does lighten dark circles considerably. However, because it is thick I’m hesitant to apply more to build up the coverage for fear of it turning cakey. I do have fine lines under my eyes and the last thing I want is to accentuate them.
The product will last a long while because it only takes a tiny amount for each eye due to its thickness and pigmentation, so that’s another pro.
To conclude, I do like the concealer as it does lighten my dark circles. I would definitely consider repurchasing in the future once I’m finally through with this tube, but sadly I still have not found my HG under eye concealer.
