Review : Garnier Light BB Eye Roll-On

Hey y'all!

How's your weekend?
Mine's pretty sparkly from the shopping I experienced earlier. Will post about that tomorrow!

But for now, I shall leave you a review on a product that makes me look like I have enough hours of sleep when in fact, I barely get any!

Garnier Light BB Eye Roll-On

I bought this at Landmark, Makati for Php229.00.
The shade I got is in Natural but I'm not sure if there are other shades available.

I bought this because I was super curious about it. 
Is it a BB cream or an under eye concealer?
Though I've seen quite a number of blog posts about this, I want to try it for myself. It's not really expensive so I bought it with no hesitation.

So here are information of the product from the packaging:


From the data labeled on the box, I don't think it is exactly a BB cream. It doesn't have SPF too. I think it could pass as a light concealer.


The product comes in a tube. Quite handy to bring along. The design is quite boring though. It's also opaque and very solid so you wouldn't have any idea how much is left until you really ran out of it.


It is a roll-on. It's something different which is nice. But honestly, I'm not a fan of it. The roller ball can get messy and since the application is easier when it's directly applied on the eye area, you have to make sure that your face is really clean. 

Here's a swatch of the product on my hands...


and when blended...

The product feels very light and it also has a light consistency which makes it easy to blend. It has a very mild scent too.

The following are photos of my eye before and after the product was applied...


It really did brighten my eyes! It also has a natural finish that doesn't look like you have those very highlighted under eyes. The coverage isn't as strong as some concealers I've tried so I don't think it could entirely cover really dark under eyes.
Lasting power is quite decent too. Never experienced any caking on my under eyes with this one.

LIKES:

♥ Inexpensive
♥ Locally available
♥ Brightens my eyes
♥ Natural finish
♥ Mild scent
♥ decent staying power
♥ Feels light on skin

DISLIKES:

♥ Packaging
♥ Might not cover really dark under eyes. 


Will I buy again?
I think it is a good product but I will pass on buying one again. I have tried other under eye concealers at almost the same price range that work as well or even better.


Have you tried the Garnier Light BB Eye Roll-On yet?



Cheers!

  1. It might not have given the area a full coverage, but it did brighten the eye as promised. I'm so getting this soon ;)

  4. Oooh. I haven't really tried this but I did try the yellow one and didn't work for me kaya I don't think I'll be getting this one esp. that I bought a mix concealer from Lioele! ^^
