Rated 3 out of 5 by missx Not Same Shade As the One In the Black Tube
I purchase this product because I always purchased the one in the black tube, but the same shade in this product was lighter and I didn't receive a brush; it was after 30 days before I used it so I couldn't send it back. I cancelled my auto delivery on this product. I'm very disappointed with this product and not receiving the brush that came with it; I have to use my finger.
Rated 3 out of 5 by A-L Very sadly giving it three stars
I am 75 and very fair with dark hereditary circles on crepey undereyes. I watched the video and followed the instructions, applying it on clean, dry skin. t looks like it's covering the dark circles, but in 20 minutes they are back. It doesn't crack, but does settle into the tiny wrinkles. When I watch the older model in the demo, it looks to me like it accentuates her undereye wrinkles too.
The models who are applying it on-camera also look like they're applying gobs of it, and the consistency for them is more like foundation. Maybe it's the hot studio lights? It looks heavy and fakey on them.
This is so thick, it takes all my strength to get a tiny bit to appear at the end of the tube. I tried applying it with the brush, but it was so thick and tugged on my skin that find it works better to just barely touch my finger on the little bit that first appears at the tip of the tube and then pat, pat, pat to spread it.
I warm it on my hand, but it doesn't make it any less thick and it's still hard to spread thinly. Next I'm going to try putting the tube in a glass of hot water when I start my makeup, so it might come out of the tube more easily and spread better that way.
I love the original Bye Bye Undereye, and found that works best when my undereye area is well moisturized and has time to absorb completely before applying the Bye Bye. That doesn't work with this version - it sinks into the cracks between the wrinkles, and the dark circles come back within 20 minutes.
I've tried applying a salmon concealer under it - then it covers well but gets cakey. I've tried applying my illumination CC foundation over it. It goes on smoothly, but in 20 minutes the dark circles are back, and it's piling up in the little wrinkles. I've tried setting it with Bye Bye Pores powder, and it stays in place that way, but it really looks like a thick, hard layer and makes wrinkles deeper. I've tried just using a makeup setting spray, and it does stay put, but the dark circles are back in 20 minutes.
If I put on enough to really cover the dark circles and keep them covered, and do nothing else, it settles into creases within half an hour. I find if I tap on the undereye area when I notice it, they go away. But all that tapping gradually wears it off, and who wants to keep checking every 30 minutes all day anyway? So I guess for me, it's just a choice between dark circles or accentuated wrinkles - unless I can figure out how to use it.
I love IT cosmetics and will keep trying. But at this point, giving it even three stars is being generous! If I were not such an IT fan, I would be giving it two stars, or maybe only one. I'm hoping I will figure out how to use it to get the good results others talk about.
Rated 1 out of 5 by REDZ Eh...
I have 41 year old under-eyes and sensitive, fair skin. II was excited to purchase IT Cosmetics Eye Illumination but I found after using it for a week it does not live up to the hype nor did it look like what the models were wearing.
I agree with other users. It was hard to get out of the tube. I also felt that the brush wasn't that great. It felt and looked cheap.
For my first two applications I did exactly what was said on the presentation. A pin head size amount on the hand to warm it up and then blend.
By mid day, my under-eye was obvious with makeup and it looked awful. Very dry.
The rest of the week, I tried variations of putting on the product but found the same results each time. No thanks.

Coverage good but to heavy and hard to apply. Very thick and not a great look
