Garnier Tinted Eye Roll On

Following on from their original best selling version, Garnier have tried to double their good luck by releasing a new tinted version. Having been a fan of the first one and it’s anti-puffiness abilities I was excited to try this. As with a lot of their skin products of late, including the now infamous BB Cream, only two shades are on offer – light and medium.

I was disappointed to note that light is not light at all but quite a medium toned shade, far too dark for my skin. No amount of blending or tapping into the skin will make this look right. I never understand why brands think two shades are sufficient to work for the whole female population, it’s quite ridiculous – especially when they put a phrase like “instant fairness” on the packaging. On top of this, the formula isn’t as good as the first one. It’s harder to work with and is much less gel-like, thus getting rid of it’s anti-puffing abilities. Here’s some pictures below:

Hugely disappointed by this product, but maybe it will work for the small number of us whose skin type completely match the two shades on offer. Anyone else tried it?

    Oh goodness, where to begin with how wrong this product is… if you use it a few times, you discover why it’s a problem that you can’t control how much product comes out of the rollerball. You end up using a makeup brush to take the product to the eye area, thus making the entire concept redundant. Major Poo!

    I wasn’t particularly blown away by this product as well, but it was worked for me sometimes. Maybe give it another try during the summer and see if you like it 🙂
