Clinique Even Better Eyes Dark Circle Corrector

I've had good luck with most of Clinique's Even Better collection and was intrigued when this new item landed on my desk. Fortunately I don't have dark circles but I am certainly not above a little under eye improvement. It's a little deeper under there than the rest of my skin so I gave it a try.

This is not really a concealer . more of a highlighter , but it's not quite that either. The Corrector adds a  little tint of color  that really does brighten up the eye area. It's subtle but definitely there. It also makes the skin feel much smoother.

The product itself is very light and it comes with a the cooling tip applicator you may have seen in other products.

Ok, onto the skincare component. Clinique says that with 12 weeks of use, Even Better Dark Circle Corrector is proven to lighten circles by 30%. That's pretty good.

Ingredients include Vitamin C and Mulberry Root for lightening, Caffiene and Green Tea Extract for soothing, Linoleic Acid and Cholesterol for hydration.

Also there is " Translucent Optics Technology"  which is a blend of optics that capture light for immediate improvement. I did see a wee bit of shimmer on my eye area , which would be from this. Now don't worry about that shimmer, it's minimal. It makes you look better and you will , most likely, be putting your foundation or BB Cream over it.

Overall verdict- I like it. If you have  under eye issues , it's definitely worth a try. It comes in one shade, that is basically translucent on skin, so one shade should work on most.

$ 39.50 at Clinique.

Well PP if you love Clinique ( and they make some fab products) and have circles, then you might. Give it a try at the counter and see what you think. It's really quite nice.
