Love it or Leave it: The Best Eye Creams and the Worst Eye Creams
Hope in a jar doesn't come cheaply for those looking to repair and protect the delicate skin around their eyes. From dark circles to fine lines to under eye puffiness, there are a bevy of products that promise to turn back the clock, or stop it all together.
But, only a handful of products deliver on their promises to rejuvenate under eye skin. (And we should know, we tested 124 eye products in all.) Here's what you'll want, and what you'll want to walk away from.
The Best and Worst Eye Creams...
Drugstore duds and darlings
Three lip liners, three nail lacquers, two lipsticks and a powder. That's what I left Walgreens with after stopping in for a razor. A trip to CVS to purchase lined paper for my son ended successfully for him. I, however, left out of cash - and willpower, apparently - thanks to dry shampoo, hair spray, eye cream and a tube of mascara for each lash on my lids. But my pain is your gain, because this week I've rounded up my latest list of drugstore duds and darlings.
Dud: Revlon Color Stay Polish
I picked up a new hue in Revlon's Color Stay Polish called 'Buttercup,' a pale yellow, which, when paired with the coordinating Revlon base coat and top coat, promises to serve up 'gel-like shine and up to 11 days of shatterproof color.' My polish didn't make it 11 days; it barely made it 11 minutes. The color went on thick and streaky, thanks in part to an awkward brush that makes application challenging for the less-than-professional manicurist. While the hue itself was quite pretty, after awkwardly shellacking on three thick coats of polish, the drying was never-ending, leaving me with a messy manicure that took hours to dry.
