This two-in-one product covers up dark circles immediately and corrects them in the long run too!

About two years ago, seemingly overnight, I had to start using under eye concealer each and every day. Up until then I had remained unscathed by the effects of late nights and aging. I was no Bar Refaeli, but I looked just as rested. But then my luck ran out and my tiredness was visible for all to see on a daily basis. Since then, I’ve been on a mission to find the ultimate concealer.

At times I felt like the Goldilocks of eyes. “This one’s too thick. This one’s too sparkly. This one’s too light.” The list of my gripes could go on for ever. Then, I stumbled upon Garnier’s Skin Renew Anti-Dark Circle Roller, ($12.99) or as I like to affectionately refer to it as, “12-hours of sleep in a stick.” Here’s why I love it. The packaging is genius. All you have to do is roll the metal ball from the inside corners of your eyes and out along the bottom. The ball is the perfect size for the small, hard-to-reach area making application not only idiot-proof, but nearly instantaneous. Perfect for those days when you have literally two seconds to get out the door.

The formula, which comes in one fair beige shade covers perfectly while mineral pigments work to illuminate the dark shadows under your eyes. (I have medium-toned, olive skin and the color still works on me as it blends well.) It’s not thick and goopy feeling and it does not budge at all during the day. Now, not only does it cover up a plentitude of sins, it’s also packed with powerful caffeine and lemon extract to stimulate, smooth and brighten the under eye area. Which means I don’t feel bad skipping the eye cream as often as I do. Plus, it’s only $12.99 and can be bought at any drugstore starting this month! I hope this product works as well on you as it does on me!
