      It's a really light weight powder, I was doubtful about that but after using it for 8+ hours I noticed it controlled my t-zone really well. I would only wish it would be a little less expensive!

                    A:

                    Hi There! Yes, this powder will hydrate and give coverage to your under eye. For added hydration we also suggest the Under Eye Hydrating Primer. This will reduce texture and add additional hydration.
