I am obsessed with tarte, and I am obsessed with concealer/corrector/under eye products, so naturally, I absolutely HAD to try the new Colored Clay CC Undereye Corrector

With only two color choices, light/medium, and medium/tan I was worried I would not be able to find a good color match. I opted for light/medium of course because I have a fair complexion. 

This product promises to mask undereye discolorations and dark circles, the light-diffusing particles brighten undereye areas, and soften the appearance of fine lines while the color-correcting colored clay offsets the look of dark circles. It works to hydrate, condition, and smooth skin while helping improve skin tone and texture over time. Who would have known there were three types of clay in the mix here- rose clay to soothe the skin, yellow clay to diffuse the look of dark circles, and purple clay to reflect light and instantly brighten. Somehow, they magically come together and create the two shades this CC product is offered in! 

tarte colored clay cc undereye correctorI have to say, WOW, this is a tall bill to fill with all the things they claim this can do. The texture reminds me of Benefit Erase Paste- thick and almost sticky- but it applies like a dream. Because it’s in a pot/palette, you could possibly apply with a brush, but I do find it’s easier to dip my finger in. A little dab will do ya, and you hardly need any. I find myself using this under my eyes and around my nose and mouth as well. Those areas get red on me, so I need a little CC action there too! 

I have found that if I use a teensy tiny amount (I can always add more) this works fantastically on me. I am surprised at how well of a color match I was able to find in the light/medium shade. I am curious how this will look as my skin gets lighter in the winter, but the peachy tones that are in this particular shade normally work to brighten on me even if it’s not a fantastic match for my skin tone. I like to set this with a powder, and if I use a little too much of this, it does crease. Like I said, a little goes a long way.

Will this replace my regular concealers and CC correctors? Only time will tell. For now, I am really enjoying this product. I am a huge fan of the colored clay line and will have more reviews up soon for other products with similar ingredients! Stay tuned!

What do you use on your undereye area? Do you have dark circles like I do?

      I know! Doesn’t it remind you of Erase Paste?

    Oooh, definitely something I must swatch to see if it’ll work for me…tho’ I’ll wait till my ‘tan” fades. I love Tarte, and I’m wondering whether this is full coverage enough for my dark spots as well.

    OOohhh this sounds pretty nice. I do like the Benefit Erase paste but a little goes a looonnng way for sure or else you get crease action badly. I think I need to check this out soon. Great post!

    Looks like a good concealer but I wonder if it really would be able to correct red and purple/ dark shades. (Makeup artist nerd talk)

    You’ve just solved a big problem for me — lack of sleep is a killer and who has time for that? Sooo this girl has been in the market for a good under-eye corrector – I think this just may be the ticket! Thanks girl…I can always count on you!

    Looks like a great concealer to try. I should keep this in mind next time. Right now, I use either Cover Fx or NARS
