      I have always had a problem with dark circles under my eyes. For as long as I can remember, I’ve had trouble sleeping and it wasn’t until my twenties that I was actually diagnosed with a sleeping disorder that causes me to fall asleep hours after I’ve gone to bed, and then I can never stay asleep for long, always tossing and turning. As a result, I pretty much have a perpetual set of dark circles under my eyes that have, at times, been so severe as to make me look ill. There’s nothing worse than putting on gobs of makeup, trying to pile it on under the eyes, just to discover that it’s really doing nothing to hide the circles, and only makes you look worse, because it’s obvious you’re trying to hide the problem. I’ve tried several dozen different kinds of under eye concealers and line smoothing creams and makeup and anything else you can think of, and still, I have this problem. I found one product years ago, can’t remember then name, could never find it again, and

      it’s the only thing that worked, and I’ve been on a desperate hunt for it for years, trying things continuously until I hopefully find it again. I was hoping that the Almay Line Smoother Under Eye Concealer would be the answer to my years of troubled eyes.

      This was actually more expensive than I was initially willing to pay, costing something like $11 (maybe more), when I almost always spend less than $10 on under eye concealers. Heck, my foundation and powders don’t even cost that much, so it was a stretch, but I was still hoping it would work. I bought the “light” color, but it looked a little pink to my eyes, and I was worried about that because Almay products are known for having a great deal of pink and orange tints in it. I took many an artclass, and what is the one thing that you learn about the color wheel? Pink tints and blue circles make what….? Purple. I shoud’ve known right then and there that this wasn’t going to be a good product for me,


      • but did I listen to my own instincts? No, of course not.

        I brought this product home and was ready to give it a shot. It has an easy-to-use applicator tip that reminds me a bit of what you’d see in a lip gloss. I spread the concealor (after one dip in the tube) under my eyes and then blotted it on with my finger. It’s supposed to reduce the look of puffiness under the eyes, and I have to admit that it did that pretty effectively, but that’s about all it really did, and I found that disappointments abounded in relation to this product. I really couldn’t even stand the look of that little tube before I was done, because I thought it was too expensive to begin with. It did nothing to hide or smooth lines around the eyes, and looked just as clumped or caked on around that delicate skin as any concealer or foundation has in the past for me, and I even tried putting it on sparingly, tried smoothing it in better, tried applying multiple layers.

        I experimented with this concealer as many ways as possible thinking it was maybe just my technique.

        But, technique aside, the color options were above and beyond the worst part of this product all together. It comes in a total of like three dismal shades, and they are either pink, brown-ish, or orange-looking. I don’t what genius thought this would make for a good cover-up over blue/black circles under the eyes. Yellow. Yellow is the tint of the very first concealer I used and loved and could never find again, and that’s the perfect tint to cover dark circles. This just really actually accentuated the problem even worse and turned them from dark circles to looking like someone had flat-out punched me in the face! It did nothing to hide lines, I couldn’t use it as a general concealer or an under eye concealer because the color was so off, but it did help reduce the look of puffiness by some miracle or another. Still, that doesn’t warrant it’s price, and I have no plans to purchase this product again in the future. 3
