BB EYE CREAM. I know, right? Please don’t judge me and my easily-influenced-and-salestalked self just yet. I was on the lookout for my MAC Studio Finish concealer replacement that has already melted and frozen a couple times over. You see, concealers and I have a special thing. It’s my can’t-live-without-makeup product. Sometimes, it’s all I ever wear when I’m going out. It instantly lifts up my eyes and makes me look more alive. I’ve tried a few others (luxury and drugstore brands) but have constantly been disappointed because my dark undereyes are just so… picky. And so, it has always been my MAC Studio Finish and me for quite a while now.
The Diorsnow BB Eye Creme aims to deliver brightening, moisturizing and treatment for dark circles, puffiness and dark spots in the eye area. Big promises! For someone like me who has insanely dark circles, this seemed like utopia. Being constantly underwhelmed by other concealers, I didn’t expect that this would deliver on its huge claims either…
ThoughtsThe Diorsnow BB Eye Creme gives very sheer coverage as a concealer. But then again, it does not promise complete coverage. My trusty MAC Studio Finish is a thick, matte, pigmented, industrial-strength concealer. This is very much the opposite as it is a slightly thin and moist cream that’s easily blendable. Its brightening promise certainly hits the spot, though. It does illuminate and awaken tired eyes by its impressive light-reflecting properties. As a concealer for completely covering up dark circles and eyebags, this is a 2.5/5. But for its brightening and illuminating properties, I give this a 4.5/5! What I do appreciate also about this product is its SPF factor. As mentioned, I go out most of the time with only sunscreen and concealer on, so a sheer concealer with added SPF specifically for the undereyes excites me. You do know that the eyes tend to be the first to show signs of aging, right? The wrinkles, etc. So with this product, even if you forget to slap on the sunscreen for your face (God forbid), at least your eyes will still be protected! A 5/5 in the added benefits category.

|Excuse the disgusting eyebrows and bumps. I also only put quite a tiny amount of BB eye cream. If I had put a bit more, this would have turned out better.|

OVERALLI would not recommend this product if you’re on the lookout for a regular or heavy-duty concealer. Certainly, there are cheaper alternatives that can give you both benefits of a concealer — to use for your undereyes and for covering imperfections. My MAC Studio Finish still remains as my go-to for those two jobs. But if you’re looking for something to protect your eyes and a fix to lighten dark circles over time, this may be a good product for you to look into. Try a sample at a local Dior counter first, though. This comes in two shades and I got the darker one. Although I await for its dark-circle reducing properties, I really like its SPF and light-reflecting properties. I seem to grab it more often than my MAC concealer nowadays because I like the natural finish it leaves and I can get away with wearing just sunscreen and this on my lazy days and good-skin-days.
