Hellooo there! It’s been a while since I’ve done a beauty review because I haven’t bought a lot of new products recently, due to the fact that I’m too lazy to do my makeup anymore. And it is just as sad as it sounds. Although about a month ago I picked up this new Clinique eye cream, cause the girl at Sephora persuaded me and when do we not fall for it? -_-
But I must admit, I did end up loving it (so I guess she wins this time)
The cream is said to hydrate and brighten under your eye. Using it in the morning it refreshes your skin and makes you appear more wide awake. It is actually really good at doing that… when I use it I find just using a bit of corrector under my eye is enough and I don’t bother with concealer after that. But even if you do wear concealer on top, it’ll apply much nicer and definitely doesn’t crease as much!
My eyes are also really tired when I wake up, even if I’ve had a solid eight hours, so this actually really helps to open them and make me feel more awake. I forgot to mention the best part…….. it’s only 30 bucks!!!!! That’s what made me buy it in the first place, even if it sucked at least it was cheap. Most eye creams are usually way more costly than that, so this is a good choice if you don’t want to spend a lot.
Now as much I love the product itself.. I hate the application. A lot. The bottle comes with a ball tip (that doesn’t come off) and you have to squeeze the product out of it and then massage it with the ball into your skin. Annoying right? Honestly I don’t know if the ball application has a purpose or better result but it does take a couple minutes to blend in, and let me tell you ain’t nobody got time for dat! Alsoooo, when you push the ball back down a lot of product jumps out, so my trick is to squeeze a little on one eye then close the tip and put whatever comes out on the other eye so it doesn’t waste. If you do end up buying it, make sure you do that trick!!! BUT don’t expect any miracles.. at the end of the day it’s a cream and isn’t going to make your dark circles suddenly disappear. If you want something that’ll brighten your eyes then give this a try and let me know what you think!
