• it Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Concealer •
IT COSMETICS Bye Bye Under Eye Concealer is a full coverage, waterproof and moisturizing concealer with anti-aging ingredients. While I do not suffer from very dark circles, I have noticed as I get older the skin under my eyes is thinning and I do have some inner corner darkness, as well as green veins that I like to cover up. It had been awhile since I’ve tried a moisturizing concealer under my eyes – over the past year I’ve found myself attracted to lightweight brightening “pens” – so I was very curious about this product. Today I’m sharing a review, swatches and before and after photos when using both light and neutral medium shades.
Bye Bye Under Eye is packaged in small squeeze tubes.

On the left – Light. On the Right – Neutral Medium. The consistency of the concealer is quite thick and very pigmented so a little goes a long way! The amount I’ve swatched here would probably be enough for ten applications!
• before & after •
Once under the eyes the Bye Bye Under Eye does a good job at concealing, and adding a “reflective” quality under the eyes to brighten the face.
• review •
Bye Bye Under Eye contains Vitamins K, A, C, E and Collagen to reduce under eye puffiness and discoloration. It is also waterproof, and it definitely stays put all day long until I remove it with a makeup removing solution! The consistency is quite thick and very pigmented (reminding me of a less-orange/peachy Benefit Erase Paste), so a little goes a long way. It is also very creamy and because of the thickness I find it is a little hard to dispense from the squeeze tube, and I often squeeze out too much in application. The concealer is quite moisturizing, so it is very comfortable underneath the eyes, so with my oily skin I do find I need to set this with a powder (if you have dry skin you may not feel the need to). When set with powder I do not experience much creasing during wear, although I need to take care I do not place it immediately under the eyes in the areas where I always experience creasing.
Light and Neutral Medium are two of the four available shades in this line (they also have Tan and Deep available.) I have to say I am most comfortable wearing Neutral Medium on it’s own most often. It is just brightening enough and works well with my complexion. If I feel the need for extra brightening (in the inner corners of my eyes where I typically have darkness) I find it effective, but it is quite bright, so I need to adjust my other face makeup application accordingly. The coverage of both is quite nice, but I also feel the need to use a corrector underneath (I have a couple corrector reviews coming up!) to conceal the darkness toward the inner corners of my eyes as well as some of the green veins under my eyes.
To apply I prefer to use a brush rather than my finger because the brush tends to blend it out evenly, whereas my finger tends to remove some of the product as I am tapping it in.
