Which One?: First Aid Beauty Eye Duty Triple Remedy v. Tarte CC Under Eye Corrector

When you are lacking sleep (like I am 99.99% of the time) under eye correctors can help brighten your face and conceal any dark circles. These products are both under eye correctors that have hit the market in the last few months. They both have their pros and cons but when it really comes down to it if I could only have one in my make up bag which one would it be?

First Aid Beauty Eye Duty Triple Remedy

I picked this up to try because I had heard a few bloggers and Youtubers rave about it and decided to give it a try. When I first got this product I looked at it and thought that the packaging was kind of gimmicky. I wasn't sure how I felt about the metal applicator that wasmeant to apply the corrector to my under eye area. However, the first time I used the metal applicator I was in heaven. The applicator felt so cool and refreshing against my skin and I didn't feel like it was tugging at the sensitive area, it was simply gliding over it and helping the corrector sink it. It was not just cover up my under eye circles. When it comes down to it the metal applicator is probably the best thing about this product. I don't feel like the corrector is super effect and I really don't think using it day in and day out makes that big of a difference over time. The actual corrector is a light weight consistency that does moisturize the area, but I don't think it depuffs like it claims. Nor do I feel like the corrector provides enough coverage to hide any dark, purple colored under eye circles.

Tarte CC Under Eye Corrector

I hate to start out with a con but for this product I just have to. I hate the packaging. There I said it. Now let me explain why. This is a very thick under eye corrector. When you put this stuff under your eyes it does not budge and I personally have to blend into my skin using a Beauty Blender. When I apply it I have to press my finger into the corrector with some pressure and move it around. I feel like this concealer needs to be in some sort of tube for easier application...or maybe that's just me. Over all the coverage of this corrector is amazing. The product is not super moisturizing so make sure to add eye cream. This product will stay in place all day if you set it with a little powder and it won't crease.

So Which One?

This is a hard one. If I could take the Tarte CC Under Eye Corrector and put it in the First Aid Beauty Eye Duty Triple Remedy packaging I would in a heart beat. But since I can't do that I guess I am gong to have to pick just one of them. And the winner is...TARTE CC UNDER EYE CORRECTOR! When it comes down to it the Tarte CC Under Eye Corrector does actually cover under eye circles. The only thing First Aid Beauty's Eye Duty Triple Remedy has going for it is the metal applicator which isn't enough of a reason for me declare it the winner.
