Suffering with Dark Circles?

Are you suffering from terrible dark circles like myself? If so, you have found the right place! I have a new found love for a product I have recently discovered and that would be the Tarte CC Undereye Corrector.

I recently picked this bad boy up while in NYC when I stopped in at Sephora. I was desperate to find something to help conceal my dark circles. I always look so tired and and I can't seem to find the right product for this. I've tried oodles of concealers and nothing has worked.

I asked one of the ladies at Sephora what she would recommend and she tried to sell me a $40 undereye cream. I actually considered it too (as I was very desperate)-but for the fact that I actually didn't see a difference! No thanks!

So I kept looking and eventually another sales person approached me and I asked her what she would recommend. I was actually looking at the Bobbi Brown Corrector when she approached me and she suggested Tarte instead. I had heard so many good things about Bobbi Brown and really wanted to try it, but I thought I'd play along and see what she could come up with.

This is what she showed me....

It's the Tarte CC Undereye Corrector

Here is the cute compact packaging as well!

The sales associate demonstrated on me how to use it. You are supposed to apply it where the inner corner of your eye meets your nose. Apparently, (I could be wrong, but this is what I was told) there is a vain there that runs under your eye and this can also cast a shadow. So she instructed me to dab my finger in the product and tap it in that area to help cover up the shadow.

SOLD! I could immediately tell a difference. I even asked my mom for her opinion to see if she could tell which eye looked better and she could totally tell.

You can see that this is already well loved! This picture was taken after about 3-5 uses I would guess, but I have since used it for about 2 weeks or so. It is such a creamy product and when you blend in with your fingers, it's like it just melts and truly blends in nicely. I've been using this for a few weeks now and I have never had a problem with it caking or creasing or having any issues at all with it. Also, a little goes a long way!

I truly feel like it makes a HUGE difference. I really don't know how long this product has been out for and why I didn't know about it sooner, but it is the most amazing product for dark circles, in my opinion. 

How I Actually Use It:
Dab finger in product and tap over dark circle areas (including where the inner corner of eye meets nose area, under the eye, and down near the side of the nose (the V shape!)
This  next step is optional: Then I dab a little Benefit Erase Paste on top (just because I am OCD, not because I really need it-it just makes me feel even MORE concealed!)
Then I move on with my normal foundation and makeup routine.

I have noticed such a difference since I began using this product. In fact, I have been suffering with a nasty cold this week, but still have to go to work. So instead of going to work looking half-dead, I actually don't even look like I'm sick. You wouldn't even know if my voice didn't sound so bad! :)

How can such a big life saver come in such a cute little compact? Magic. It's magic! I seriously love this product, can you tell yet?

Thanks Tarte! You NAILED this one!

  5. I so need this! Does it crease at all? I have such a hard time finding under eye concealers and correctors that don't crease under my eyes.

    1. Hi Maurissa! I have never noticed it crease at all. In fact, it blends in so nicely with the warmth of my finger. I go the extra mile (even though i dont need to) and add a bit of Benefit Erase Paste on top. I don't even use a concealer under my eyes any more other than the Benefit. Its a great combo! :)
