Review:- Garnier tinted Anti dark circles roll on

First thing I have to say about this product is 'Holy Grail'

I was in love with the original garnier anti dark circles roll on which is the one in the green roll on tube 
it is basically a liquid gel like eye product and the metal roller ball provides a cooling massage and actually squishes down puffy eye bags and soothes 
the main active ingredient is caffeine 

My only concern with the original one was that as i am a daily makeup wearer I was worried that my foundation, concealer, powder etc was contaminating the solution in my original roll on 
and i could 'imagine' the nasty gunky formula inside 

But since this is now tinted I dont have that concern anymore :)

I use the light shade which works fine for me I think the other darker shade would work fine on NC 35- nc45 skintones and I really hope Garnier read this and create a truly dark one for women of darker colour above nc45 as nobody should be without this product.

The roll on gives light coverage on dark circles, so if you have very dark circles you will need a proper concealer, I have medium dark circles so this works ok for me and better with a highlighter as well such as ysl touche eclat, but my main concern is eye bags and puffiness which is the HARDEST thing to cover up since it is a real problem as puffiness is 3d and not just aflat  discolouration .

I still use an eye product under this and I do go over this with concealer and highlighter but this is mostly out of habit and also to try to cover up my puffiness -which usually fails anyway lol

Have you tried this ?
which eye products do you use ?

Hello hun, ive heard this is good but my favourite is the estee lauder cooling idealist illuminator. It takes down puffiness more than anything else ive tried although it is pricey xx

I actually use the original Garnier one, I've been wanting to try this one. I love how the ball feels so cool on the skin, I want to keep rolling in on and on and on...haha
