Review: Garnier 2 in 1 Tinted Eye Roll-on

I was kindly sent this product to try out and review, It is the new Garnier 2 in 1 tinted eye roll on. It is available in all drugstores and currently retails at £9.99

Firstly I must state that all my reviews are honest personal opinions, in no way will I be swayed to give a good review just because it was sent to me for free.

Here is what it looks like, same familiar packaging as its green partner. It comes in two shades, fair and medium to dark. Here I am reviewing the fair shade.

What does it claim to do?

  1. Moisturising eye cream & a cooling roller ball: refreshes and hydrates tired-looking eyes
  2. With mineral enriched pigments it instantly covers dark circles

How do you use it?

For best results with Garnier Caffeine Anti-dark Circles 2-in-1 Roll-on:
Whenever dark circles appear, apply Caffeine Anti-dark Circles Roll-on, in circular massaging motions, onto the under eye area, from the inside towards the temples. The 2-in-1 eye care instant concealer formula will be applied automatically via the roller ball. Gently blend in the formula with finger tips, as if makeup, for flawless coverage of dark circles.

Here is what it looks like when swatched on the back of my hand, it rolls out smoothly and the consistency is quite watery

However, this blends very easily but you have to be quick, it does tend to dry quite quickly and this then makes it tricky to blend. Once blended it is almost invisible and the colour match is pretty spot on. The coverage is light to medium although this is very buildable

Here is what the bottle looks like after...

Overall I think this is a great product. Its especially great for those who find applying eye cream and concealer a hassle, this is 2in1 =) saves you time and money.
The only down side to this, as a devotee to the original green roll on, I like to roll the ball under my eyes for a good few minutes, not only for product flow but also to give them a cooling gentle massage. I would find it hard to do that with this tinted version as I can just imagine having too much product under the eye area.

Apart from that I think its great value for money and would give it a thumbs up =)
