My experience with Garnier Light Anti dark circles eye roll-on:-

The Garnier Light Anti Dark Circle eye roll-on is a thin tinted liquid which has a runny consistency. It is applied by rolling the metal ball on the eye contour which dispenses the liquid. The liquid sets pretty quickly so you need to work up fast and blend it completely with the finger tips else it will look ashy.

Due to its light and thin texture it blends nicely into the skin. I may look ashy at first but given a few minutes time it adapts to the skin tone and brightens up the under-eye area. It works well as a light coverage every-day concealer but don’t expect it to be effective in hiding heavy dark circles. It is more of an illuminator than a concealer.

It also works as an eye shadow base for me. Sometimes, (when I am in a hurry) I also use it as a concealer for concealing the light acne marks and blemishes. It sets as a matte finish and doesn’t crease or settle into fine lines even hours after application. The metal ball gives a cooling sensation when rolled over the eye area. I love rolling it over my eyes and the most easy to use concealer that I have come across.

Pros of Garnier Anti Dark Circle Eye Roll On-Light:-

  1. Thin liquidy texture that blends nicely into the skin
  2. It gives slight cooling sensation on the eye contour due to the metal roll-on.
  3. It sets to matte finish and doesn’t feel heavy on skin
  4. It gives light coverage and brightens up the under eye area giving a natural finish.
  5. It stays for long without creasing or giving a cakey look.
  6. It can be used as an eye shadow base and  for spot-concealing on face. It wont be as good as actual concealers/primers but still does an average job.
  7. Sleek and travel friendly packaging. Quite different form the regular pot type packaging for concealers, super cute and convenient to use.
  8. Dermatologically and Ophthamalogists tested.
  9. Pocket friendly at just Rs 199.
  10. Easily available

Cons of Garnier Anti Dark Circle Eye Roll On-Light:-

  1. Won’t be able conceal heavy dark circles effectively as it provides light coverage.
  2. Need to work up fast as it dries fast after application and if not spread evenly it will create a whitish cast on the skin and might look ashy
  3. Only available in 2 shades:- light and medium. So, you might find it difficult to choose a proper shade for your skin.
  4. Claims to contain Pure lemon essence and caffeine but these are listed in the end of the ingredients list. It consists of lots of chemicals and not a natural product.
  5. People with dry skin might need to moisturize the under eye area before applying this as it dries to a matte finish and might enhance the fine lines and wrinkles

Recommendation:-  Those who don’t want to go for heavy concealers or foundation to hide their barely visible dark circles and are looking for an easy to use, pocket friendly daily wear concealer than go ahead and buy Garnier Anti Dark Circles Eye Roll-on.

It won’t work on heavy dark circles as it gives light coverage only. It works best for working women who don’t have much time to do makeup and want something non-messy and less time-consuming for daily use. It works fine for the price you pay and is definitely worth a try. I think the medium version will suit better on most of the skin tone (Indian ladies) unless you have that flashing fair skin.


Rating:- 3.5/5
