30 Second Review: Clinique Even Better Eyes Dark Circle Corrector

In the past few months, I’ve tried out some new products. Some are great, some aren’t. So I’m bringing back my 30 Second Reviews in addition to my monthly What I’m Loving Now posts.

 

 

Well…I didn’t like it. After using a generous sample from Sephora for two weeks (morning and night), I’m underwhelmed. The texture has that silicone slip to it, so it goes on smoothly. I’m not a fan of products with silicones in general, though. It has a very subtle shimmer, which wasn’t good or bad; once patted onto my under eye area, the shimmer became unnoticeable. So why didn’t I like it? It didn’t make a difference in my dark circles at all, it didn’t feel particularly moisturizing, and my concealer creased more than it normally does over the cream. I’m going to stick with Philosophy’s Miracle Worker eye cream for now.

    That’s really unfortunate. I have bought Clinique products in the past, (mostly cleansers though) and liked it. I haven’t tried this, specific product, and probably won’t since your results were not satisfying. There’s other brands that will likely do the job! Thanks for the review! Happy weekend. /Madison

    Is Miracle Worker good for dark circles? Avi recently asked me if I had bruises around my eyes. Screw you, boyfriend!

      I don’t think any eye cream can really make a noticeable difference in dark circles. Having said that, I just shelled out for a fancy eye cream, so maybe I’ll be pleasantly surprised. And to answer your question, Miracle Worker gives me a nice base for concealer but I don’t think it does much for dark circles.
