Most Helpful Positive Review Awesome lil cute stuff
I really like using this cute lil panda on my dark bags under my eyes cuz it works really well at brightening up that area. I know some people say it doesn't really work, but I've looked up so many reviews & YouTube makeup videos for this guy & they showed different ways to use this. The way I like the most since I have a fair/neutral skin is using it as a light colored creamy concealer/highlighter before or after I put on foundation or just by itself when I'm at home & want to look alive. Alil goes along way & you gotta just blend it in along the under eyes or all over the eye area if you'd prefer. Though it is alil bit greasy, but that's why you should only use alil at a time, but It's also pretty moisturizing & it smells like makeup (I like the makeup smell) I have seen a difference in using it for about a week & it's brightened up the dark circles under my eyes alil bit. I think I'd buy this again if I ever run out to keep my under eye bags & dark circles away.
Most Helpful Critical Review I won't be purchasing again. Returned.
I understand that my experience was probably unique as many in the beauty community like this product. In my personal experience it was not good. One hour after applying I started experiencing burning and redness in my under eye area that escalated to puffiness and bruise-like appearance that continued after cleansing. I ended up icing my under eye with frozen chamomile tea bags to soothe and returned the product the next day. Overall a bad and scary experience.
Reviewed by 174 customers good brightening eye shadow base
Leftyleolady from Washington DC Metro Area
i use this as an eyeshadow base. it is slightly brightening and helps colors to pop. i do believe that i tried it under my eyes as some point but as a 40+ woman with a medium-deep skin tone, it was too light and not moisturizing enough for me. for those people who do not like the effect under eye, i would recommend trying the product as an eyeshadow base.
So Cute, Works Okay
demmeg from Syracuse
I bought this not because I needed an eye base, but because it was so cute! I can't say that it works to brighten my under eye, but it feels really nice to put on. Doesn't seem to do much but idk I really like it.
sinena from AZ
May not happen in every experience, but it caused serious irritation under my eyes. burned the skin and left it extremely dry. went in the trash less than 24 hours after using.
Crystal from Las Vegas, nv
I works if you are are on top of it. Although it's only good if they are not to bad so I'm happy with it.

I just received mine today ! I love it very much can't it has brightened up my dark circles definitely will be part of my skin care routine.
Starsangel21 from Massachusetts
It won't smooth on ur lids. It's gritty, messy & useless. The cool stick they sell is ok if you want to try their products. Stay clear of this one.
MiraMira42 from Philadelphia, PA
I'll be honest: I didn't even care if this worked. I mean, look at it! It's an adorable panda! But the good news is, this genuinely does provide a little bit of brightness and take care of the finer lines under my eyes (the big ones still require concealer, though).
Is it a must-have? From a makeup standpoint, not exactly. But if you've decided you need to have it in your collection regardless, you can still get some good use out of it. Especially if you're still at an age where people aren't going to look at you oddly for squeeing over panda makeup.
The only thing that covers my dark circles
Rhys from TX
I have genetic dark circles that are made worse by the fact that I'm a college student who gets no sleep. Concealer and color corrector and serums didn't work. Using this under my concealer? Works wonders. I'm super impressed.
It's a brightener
Alice from Florida
So I've noticed some reviews that show disappointment in this product for only covering up the underlying problem. That's the point of this product; it's a brightener NOT a wrinkle reducer/color corrector. If you want to address those issues, another product needs to be used. This eye brightener will lighten the skin underneath one's eyes to reduce the appearance of the exhaustion and dark coloration. Think of it as like a pre-concealer. It goes on white and needs to be blended in a bit; I'm fair-skinned so it blends well for me. I cannot speak on how this would appear on darker skin shades so be mindful of the possibility it may be more noticeable depending on the shade of your skin. I apply before I even prime, and the dark circles now permanently a fixture under my eyes are instantly less obnoxious. That's the sole purpose of this product, to make you look a little less weary. It works for me. I will say, however, be EXTREMELY cautious when applying; if you get any in your eye, the burn (especially to my fellow contact lense wearers) is severe.
i would buy this product again and again
cheetos8813 from san benito, texas
it works with my puffy eyes and it makes them less puffy. you simply apply to under your eye and rub it gently to smooth it out
I would buy this again if I needed halloween makeup
Lala from USA
Somewhat works as a primer but it would be the last primer I would choose. Cute product but useless and a total disappointment.
Great for brightening undereyes!!!
Scarlett from Washington, D.C
I put this on before my foundation, color corrector and concealer, and it works very well! I notice a big difference in the brightness of my under eyes when I use this. The stick is white but it blends very easily (I do have light skin so I don't know how well this would work on deeper skin tones) and it has a natural finish. The only con is it is a little dry so I would not recommend this to someone with dry under eyes.
Such cute packaging, decent temporary effect
Brit from Champaign, IL
This cute little panda is really nice for brightening the under eyes! I've been using it for a week or so, and it does brighten under my eyes but I think it's mostly from a mica pigment in the product, not a lasting effect. I don't notice any other benefits, but it does do well under my makeup / concealer and makes it easier to cover my dark circles :). Would recommend if you go in with realistic expectations of what this does!
works so well!
🤩 from york
I use this product under my eyes to brighten my dark circles, and I don't wear concealer or powder over it at all. it works wonders, and since it's so white I thought it might leave flashback in pictures, but I got none! I don't wear makeup except for on special occasions (and even then it's extremely light makeup), and on a daily basis this is amazing! I've used it for about a week and can fully say I love this brightening stick so much.
I don't have raccoon eyes anymore.
Kam from San Jose,CA
I use the product after an intense workout to feel cooler. I also put it on once I wake up to feel more awake.
Kali from Colorado
I absolutely adore this product I use it daily to help brighten up my under eyes or even just as a light basecoat before I put on eyeshadow it has a little bit of a tacky feeling so it can definitely hold whatever concealer eyeshadow you put on not reliable as a long-term eyeshadow primer but definitely something to get the job done. Because it's a brightening base it definitely really helps out with any minor dark circles or discoloration under the eyes but anything more severe obviously you just want to use a concealer. Perfect for no make up make up and quick make up applications.
I will buy it again!
Tae from Midland, Michigan
I love it!
Ruby from NC
I should have read the specs on this, but honestly it's my only complaint. I have seen more harsh reviews but everyone's skin is different and I had a positive experience using this. It doesn't leave grease residue (for me) and does a pretty good job for the price. Just keep in my mind it's pretty small.
Broke me out so bad
Mickey from Asheville
I have never had something break me out so badly. The rash began with rough bumps under my eyes and then spread all over my cheeks. It's been lasting for days now and i am extremely disappointed.
Use it Correctly and It's Amazing!
Heather from Louisville, KY
I've seen lots of bad reviews for this cute product, but in those reviews, it seems to me that people were expecting it do something it isn't supposed to do. First, this is a brightening under-eye base. It is meant to be worn under concealer or foundation. Second, it should be acknowledged that Tony Moly is a Korean brand. Most products are going to be geared towards sheer/minimal coverage.
For me personally as a university student, I wear light makeup. My dark circles are still very visible under my concealer (which is a peachy/salmon tone, to color correct for purples.) When I dab this under the eyes, blend it out, and then apply my concealer over top of it, it makes a world of difference!! After applying powder on top to set, I can get a decent amount of wear time. While it does not perfectly conceal my dark circles (though nothing I use ever does), it does brighten the area and make them way less noticeable.
I would buy this again
Izzy from Los Angeles, Ca
This product is amazing I use it to hydrate my skin but I also use it an eyeshadow primer.
BUH-BYE TONY & MOLY
tiffdolla from orange county, ca
Wanted to give this guy a try since I've used many products from TONY MOLY and they all panned out well. The panda cooling stick they used to have was amazing!! This one has the same packaging but is terrible. It does not glide on smooth or work. Leaves a white residue I'm assuming is the "brightening" factor but no go. Girl bye.
Cute packaging, don't waste your money
🐼 from NY
It's cute but it feels more greasy than it does moisturizing. Doesn't really brighten very well. Overall just a gimmick product
great product in a cute little panda
TINK from Enid ok
TONYMOLY has fun products that do a great job
I did buy this product again and I will continue to buy it
Lisabelle from San Diego, CA
I first used this product for my dark circles. It had a brightening effect, but doesn't actually make my dark circles disappear like concealer. You would use this under concealer. It does awaken my tired eyes in the morning. I then started using it as an all over the face moisturizer. Because it goes on so smooth and has a brightening effect, I apply this on my bare face in areas that I want to brighten. My face feels smoother and moisturized which is why I use this as a primer as well. However, it does leave creases so I would avoid the eyelids. It's small and easy to apply. Use a thin layer and with your weakest finger, dab it around your circles.
