It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Concealer | Review

It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Concealer  SOFIAADOT Review

I picked this It Cosmetics concealer up a couple of months ago from Sephora in Sydney in the mini size. They definitely got me, as it was one of those splurge in the moment of walking up to the counter things. I’d heard a lot about this before and I do have pretty bad under eye circles so I justified it and grabbed it on the way to pay.

The shade all the mini It Cosmetic concealers come in (at least the ones they had there) were Light so that is the shade I got. The tube is a mini, so it is pretty small and quite simple, plain black packaging with white writing. I do like how secure the lid is though, as there is nothing worse than spilled makeup. Having said that, with a tiny squeeze a lot comes out, far more than I personally would use, so it does waste a bit of product fast.

In terms of the consistency however, I have to say I am definitely not a fan. The concealer is thick, sticky and very heavy (especially for under eyes). I tried to use it first just with my fingers but I found it too thick and couldn’t make it work. I then tried it with a beauty blender and although that spread it out better, it patched and separated as I applied it. Having pushed past the application, the concealer creased really fast and made my under eye area look heavy and just a bit of a general mess. Although the coverage was there, the consistency just didn’t work for me at all.

I’m glad I got the small version of this to test out as I definitely would have regretted the full size. I’m not sure if maybe I just got an old or dodgy one but it was quite disappointing. Have you tried this It Cosmetics concealer before? What did you think?

    I haven’t tried IT Cosmetics before as its quite hard to get a hold of in the UK, however it is coming to one of our biggest retailers this year so I hope to get the chance. Such a shame about this concealer but I have head great things about the CC cream.

    That’s what bothers me a lot sometimes about Sephora products– they are so expensive, and supposedly high end, and sometimes, they really truly don’t work. Though I have to say, that minis counter at Sephora also gets me every time. x

    I hated this concealer! It’s way too thick and sinked into all my fine lines. And it creased like crazy on me too.

    Ooh, I suppose that’s the beauty of trying tester sizes before buying the full sized versions – phew! I bet you’re relieved right now haha 🙂 Hope you’re having a wonderful weekend so far! x

      Yeah it is sooo much better to just try out the small version first!! Definitely glad I saved some money haha Hope you did too! xx

    It’s a shame it didn’t work for you! I had heard good things about it but it does look very thick in the picture x

      Yeah that’s why I was surprised as well as it’s very thick indeed! xx

    It’s a shame that it didn’t work for you, it really doesn’t sound like a nice concealer at all.

    Hope that you are having a nice weekend 🙂

    Even though you didn’t seem too impressed by the concealer, at least you got to try a smaller version! Money is saved and you got to know if it works :).

    Oh yeah, I am NOT a fan of thick and sticky. But then if you get too thin, it doesn’t work either. You need a nice balance in a concealer! 😉

    I totally agree it feels sticky and heavy – which I don’t love, but I actually still use it because it is the only one I have found that covers the color under my eyes correctly! I have such dark circles, that nothing else works!

      Ahh fair enough! I think if you use just a small amount and work through it slowly it could work well, I just can’t seem to get it that way haha xx

    I guess I’m not the only one who has to justify to buy things on a purchase spree next to the counter 🙂 I never used concealer in my life, I wish I could see it used on someone – some before and after photographs. Maybe it’s a good idea for a next post?

    • SofiaaDot
      May 15, 2018 / 5:46 am

      Haha yeah I justify too! Yeah that’s a good idea, this one sucked so much though I didn’t even want to wear it again haha xx

    Minis are a great way to try new products because if they don’t work for you, at least you didn’t spend a lot of money.

    That concealer looks really thick on the picture so I can imagine the consistency.

    Thanks for sharing this review! 🙂

      Yeah that’s exactly why I’m soooo glad I got the mini! It would have sucked to get the full size and have it be like that 🙂 xx

    I have very dark under eye, but this concealer (for whatever reason) always looked a touch too heavy for me. I am not a fan either; thanks for your honest review! I am sure there are plenty of alternatives out there left for us to discover xx


    • SofiaaDot
      May 15, 2018 / 5:44 am

      Yeah that’s exactly it, even if the coverage is there it’s so heavy it looks too intense! No worries, definitely still on the look out for a good quality one! Xx

    • SofiaaDot
      May 15, 2018 / 5:43 am

      Yeah it’s definitely not ideal at all! Xx

    I have heard so many People rave about the line, too bad the consistency didn´t work out for you. Under my eyes I need something lightweight too.

      Yes definitely same here! I know they have an illuminating version of this so maybe that would be more lightweight! xx

    Too bad it feels sticky and heavy, I hate when under eye products feel heavy on the skin and have a thick formula that makes it tricky to apply!

      Yeah it definitely becomes a complete mess to apply when it’s so thick haha xx
