Garnier 2in1 Tinted Eye Roll-on

Posted by Lipglossiping On January - 21 - 2010

ON the 15th January, Garnier released the long-awaited update to their original Eye Roll-on which has accumulated fans across the globe.

Garnier 2in1 Tinted Eye Roll-On.

I don’t count myself a fan of the original non-tinted version. Despite finding it refreshing and a pleasing object to use, I just didn’t notice enough difference to justify a £10 price tag.  I was sent the new tinted version last week and have been excited at the prospect of a comparison!

I don’t have a particular problem with eye-bags, but dark circles are pesky nuisances that appear frequently thanks to late nights and early starts and concealer in that delicate area is something tricky to get right – especially on-the-go.  I’ve used many products and am currently favouring Bobbi Brown’s Creamy Concealer Kit (kindly gifted to me by LondonMakeupGirl) – it’s a fantastic product, but it’s not something I could use to touch-up with during the day.  I’m also not a fan of YSL’s Touche Eclat, I hate how it photographs and think it’s a particularly overrated product.

Like it’s counterpart, Garnier’s 2in1 Tinted Eye Roll On, comes in a purse-friendly tube, ergonomically shaped to fit comfortably in the palm of your hand.  It promises two things:

1. Immediate Coverage

2. Reduce the look of fatigue

Well, does it deliver?

Yes and Yes-ish…

It has the same roll-on application system as the original.  That roller ball is a joy to use, it’s smooth… never drags and is cooling to the touch.  Innovation at it’s absolute best.

It delivers a steady stream of product and in my (limited) experience, hasn’t blocked or clogged on me.  I put the original version in the fridge in the Summer for an extra-cooling experience, but I’m not sure how that would translate now that it contains coloured pigments.

Available in 2 shades: Fair and Medium, I received it in Fair.

As you can see, it’s a little darker than my (very pale) skin tone and a bit warmer aswell.  It claims to be able to “perfectly adapt to your skin tone”… I was unconvinced upon swatching.

Once rolled onto the eye area, it looks a better fit.  It blends easily and smoothly.  I use my ring finger to blend gently, I want to blend it with my skin… not rub it away!

Once blended, I’m pretty happy with the effect.  I don’t think it will replace my Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer Kit (which is more heavy duty) – but I’ll definitely be carrying this in my makeup bag for touch-ups throughout the day.  It needs precise blending on me thanks to being a little too warm for my skintone, so I wouldn’t dare use it without a mirror… but I’m always gazing at my reflection in various shiny objects, so I’m sure I’ll be ok 😉

Oh, also! Very important and hugely positive.  No creasing!  I even layered it for more coverage and didn’t notice it seeping into the fine lines at all.  It has the same cooling effect as the original, but I still don’t notice any significant hydration of the area or anything that would suggest I’ve had 14hrs sleep… maybe I just need 14hrs sleep?

This is currently a Boots exclusive in the UK. Get it online here, priced at £9.99

    Thank you very much for your review. This is very useful. What would you say your top 5 of “under the eye” concealers are? I’ve got lots of lines and my main concern is coverage, blendability, and not seeping in the lines. Thank you very much xx

    I wasn’t that impressed with the normal roll on. Good review though thanks :o)

    LOL, I also think the only thing that actually gives the look of 14 hours’ sleep is….14 hours sleep. It’s a pretty good idea to do the treatment and colour all in one, and that looks like does it quite well. I don’t like eye creams that claim to cover dark circles with shimmer – that just looks wrong to me (and I think is one of the reasons why that YSL photographs so badly.)

  4. Leanne says:

    I’m really liking the look of this and can’t wait to try it… still waiting on mine! Hopefully the colour will be alright, I think you might be even paler than me. I’m definitely pleased there’s no shinyness to it!

  5. Tali says:

    The only products i found that gives the 14 hrs sleep look is the Guerlain Midnight secret.. and it is so expensive its on my wish list and will most probably stay there. I was lucky enough to get 6 samples and after using one everyone was complimenting me on my skin. It is the best thing ive come across. But i cant part with £110 for a treatment ill use 2x a week!… for shoes yes but for cream????

    Thank you for this review!
    I agree that YSL Radiant Touch is so overrated!
    Im excited about this one as I like the first roll on- it refreshes my skin and makes my eyes feel less tired.
    Im so gonna try this one:)
    xx

    This looks a LOT more pigmented than I expected, l agree about the original version too – nice enough, but not amazing…

  8. desiiGirl87 says:

    oooh!
    thanx so much for the review!
    duno..should i get it? lol

  9. Redtiger21 says:

    Well now that really does surprise me, as to hear about it i’d be very dubious about how good it can be make-up wise, but i’m pleasantly surprised by your photos!
