If you’re anything like me, you’ll try every eye cream, patch and concealer that promises to reduce dark circles. And while I know it’s natural to see more hollowness and shadows around my eyes as I age, it doesn’t mean I love the way it looks. What inevitably happens is I become underwhelmed by the results of (sometimes very pricey) products, or I cake way too much on to get the desired effect. Instead, I end up with a flaking, piling mess of cream and concealer. Maybe there’s no quick fix, or maybe my luck is about to change thanks to Catrice Cosmetics Under-Eye Brightener ($6).

The color-correcting concealer comes in two shades, Light Rose and Warm Nude, which suits light to medium skin tones and tan to deep skin tones, respectively. Both are specifically designed to balance out the bluish and purplish tones of dark circles for an “instantly awake” effect. The formula contains hyaluronic acid and shea butter to keep skin nourished and help the cream texture blend into skin seamlessly. The coverage is medium and natural, so it works as a super-booster for your concealer, or it can replace it altogether.


Catrice Under-Eye Brightener Reviews

Reviewers confirm it neutralizes dark circles. One shopper in her 60s with “blue veins under the eyes” that “can’t be covered with just foundation anymore” was so impressed with the color-correcting coverage they said they would “gladly” have “paid triple” the price. A second called it “magic in a jar,” before praising it for making them “look younger, more awake and more refreshed.”

“I have tried expensive undereye concealers ten times the price of this one that don’t work as well,” the same reviewer also shared. A 40-something customer agreed, noting it “performs much better than many higher end brands.”

A new mom said “dark circles are real these days,” but the Under-Eye Brightener “covers the purple” and she no longer gets the “you look tired” remarks. Another raved it “immediately covered the bags under [their] eyes” and made eyes look “so much brighter,” adding they also use it on their cheeks to “because they are always a bit red and it helped with that too.” Other fans called it “silky,” “clever,” and “great for mature skin.”

For just $6, there’s no good reason not to try Catrice’s Under-Eye Brightener. Whether you wear it with or without makeup, this color-correcting cream may just be the key to brighter, smoother, more awake-looking eyes in an instant.
