It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Review

I have dark circles under my eyes and I have been searching for the perfect under eye concealer for a while. Think I have finally found my holy grail product at long last.




I got this from the 6 PC Must Have Collection through the Shopping Channel(see my post) 3 weeks ago and have been trying it out ever since daily.

Bye Bye Under Eye
" Full coverage waterproof concealer with hydro-collagen, vitamins C& K. This multipurpose full coverage anti-aging concealer covers dark circles, bags, redness, hyperpigmentation, broken capillaries and discoloration instantly. Our exclusive concealing and moisturizing formula with vitamins C & K, hydro-collagen and antioxidants covers in a single application, and is also buildable as both as a concealer or foundation. The skin-loving ingredients work to moisturize and strengthen the delicate under eye area and give skin a more healthy youthful appearance."

Ingredients:
Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Bis-diglyceryl, polyacyladipate-2, VP/Hexadecene Copolymer, Cetyl Alcohol, Silica Dimethyl Silylate, Ozokerite, Tocopheryl Acetate, Collagen Amino Acids, Retinyl Palmitate, Tocopherol, Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate, Phytonadione, Soluble Collagen, Propylparaben, Methylparaben.


The consistency of this concealer is quite thick, unlike any other concealer I have used before. You only need half a pea size to use for both eyes. As you can tell from the swatch, it has a bit of sheen to it. The shade I got is medium neutral and I am a NC 30. It may look a bit too light but for under eye, I prefer a lighter shade to give my super dark circles a brightening effect.

Have to admit when I first tried out this concealer, it is a bit challenging. It is so thick that it takes a few trials to find out exactly how much is needed. I started with very tiny amount and spread it out when my fingers. I applied where my dark circles are and spread it out in a triangle shape. Then I use my beauty sponge to gently dab it around to even it out. 

I have normal/combination skin but I don't usually get oily underneath my eye. It is very moisturizing and have a brightening effect. But I set the under eye area with my Tarte Amazonian Clay smooth operator powder mixed with Ben Nye Banana powder. If you like the glow effect underneath your eyes, you can skip the setting step. 

This concealer is very long-lasting and does not crease. At the end of the day, my concealer is still in place. Since it has special moisturizing ingredients, I find the concealer does not settle into the fine lines around my eyes. Some concealers I have used before are heavy-duty but they make your under eye area very dry and cakey after a few hours of application. 

Overall, I am very impressed with what Bye Bye Under Eye can deliver. Highly recommend this to anyone who suffers from dark circles and bags.
