No, this is a typical eye cream. It is a white cream, and does not conceal at all. I have been using it in the morning, but still have to cover with concealer.

answer 2
depends on your skin tone - it is tinted so if you have fair/light skin, this might be enough. I have olive skin so I use this with Amazing Collections Amazing Concealer which truly is AMAZING and I feel like I look 10 years younger when I'm done getting ready in the morning.

I highly recommend you go to a store (if you have one close) with NO make-up on (I know, I know....just wear some big shades) and have them do one eye.

A little! It's peachy. The tint very barely shows up though, so it's not like a concealer.

You'll need a concealer. This is tinted but not enough to make a difference. It's more like a highlighter.

answer 7
You will definately need an additional concealer. Think of this as a little bit of a tinted moistureizer. It lightens your circles a bit upon application, but not enough to replace concealer. Keep in mind a little goes a long way, so use a tad less and wait for it to absorb a few moments before you apply your concealer.

NO! It says on the instructions that you should apply before your moisturizer, which clearly means it is not intended as a proper eye cream for moisture.

For me it's not sufficient as a moisturizer. I always put moisturizer on first after washing my face, and then apply this last. It's not like an eye cream - it'll absorb quite fast, and then the area will be pretty dry.

It depends on your complexion, I guess. It isn't noticeable on me, meaning for me at least, it applies and rubs in well. I am slightly darker than a Pepperidge Farm milano cookie. Hope that helps.

This is a slightly cream colored cream that leaves no color or residue on my face. I don't see any reason why you wouldn't like it as much as I do.You're probably younger and with tighter skin than I am(70) so I think you'll love it.

Yes the cream is tan colored but it does blend in to african american skin. I just found that it doesn't work as well, maybe the color helps mask dark circles on lighter skin but it does nothing for darker complexions.

Since the product was developed specifically for the undereye area, you might want to consider one of the following for your eyelids: Clinique's All About Eyes cream, Algenist's Complete Eye Renewal Balm or Shiseido's Benefiance WrinkleResist24 Intensive Eye Contour Cream. I was looking for a product for my crepey eyelids and was told by the respective companies that these products are safe for use on the actual eye lid as well as the surrounding eye area.

I have used it on my eyelid as well with no problem but you need to be sure you dont have oily eyelids because it will crease. You can put a primer or eye shadow to diminish this effect.

Question
clinique's even better eyes dark circle corrector to be applied before or after ones regular eye moisturizer?
There is no proper answers on this site or even in the packaging regarding this eye product. Are we to apply this before or after using a daily moisturizer? There are directions for the "even better dark spot corrector", with none given for the eye. Are we to assume to use a moisturizer with this product? Please bring some clarity. There are I believe 7 products cited within the packaging, making it difficult to read or understand. This type of packaging insert/product directions is highly impractical, and without benefit for either the end-user or clinque.

I use this as an eye moisturizer. My daily morning routine: cleanse, tone, exfoliate, apply this to my eye area, apply a serum all over my face, apply seaberry oil all over my face (including over under-eye area), and finish with a mineral sunblock SPF 50. I hope this helps!

I use mine before my moisterizer. You could wait for it to sink in, then add moisterizer all over and around the eye for more moisture. Or you could put it on then add your daily moisterizer, avoiding the eye area.

I haven't actually used Benefit's eye primer over it but I have used Laura Mercier and Lorac eye primers (on my lids) and Laura Mercier foundation primer underneath my eyes with no problems at all. The clinique eye cream dries quickly and make-up goes on top very well in my opinion. I'm on my second container.
