This was originally designed as a color corrector, but the line has been expanded to include more skin tones, so it is a perfect concealer. It was also designed to fight puffiness, so it is my go-to for the morning after a long night.
In the photo, the left eye has circle defense, right eye does not. You can see what a game changer it is for me, I have some serious dark circles!
I work your typical 40-hour week, but sometimes I have to work evenings, which leaves me looking pretty tired. I have subtle under-eye circles, but they become amplified with puffiness...especially if I don't get enough sleep. This product calms my skin, reduces the look of dark circles and imperfections, and blends easily. I also like to look wide awake, even if I'm not, so in the past I would reapply a small dab of concealer around my eyes later on during the day. Not anymore, not with this amazing container of awesome! What makes it even more amazing is that I can use it as an eye primer...it doesn't crease, covers spider veins, and makes eyeshadow stay put. I love making the most out of my make up, and this is by far my best investment!
Best undereye concealer I've tried to date.
Tarte's Dark Circle Defense is the best thing I've used for under my eyes. Ever. I've tried nearly every drug store brand and nothing came even close. The day I bought this I spent about 30 minutes at Ulta with a lovely sales rep who helped me pick this out. I'm pretty sure we went through every high end concealer Ulta offers! This was the only one that worked and covered up my dark circles. Tarte also claims that in about 4 weeks it helps reduse under-eye puffiness but since I don't wear makeup every day, I can't confirm this.
This was originally designed to be a color corrector, meaning it should be used with a concealer. I am lucky enough that it is a beautiful match to my own skin tone. I have always had the worst dark circles that nothing seemed to take care of. This product takes away the darkness and still looks completely natural, not caked on!
