Maybe Kopari Starry Eye Balm Will Impress Me More Than Becca’s Anti-Fatigue Under Eye Primer

Products like Kopari Starry Eye Balm ($28) always sound great in theory it’s just when you get to using them that you realize they are more talk than action. I tried out Becca’s Anti-Fatigue Under Eye Primer and wasn’t terribly impressed with the formula but I’m putting a little more faith in Kopari’s Starry Eye Balm in the hopes it is as moisturizing as it sounds!

This eye balm contains coconut and caffeine that acts to de-puff eyes and hydrate it. Coconut oil hydrates your eyes while coffee oil depuffs them and Hyaluronic Acid plumps and smooths finer lines while helping to retain moisture under the delicate eye area.

Apparently the balm turns into a lightweight oil upon application. It does also promise to illuminate eyes as well and I hope this doesn’t mean this contains some sort of shimmer or sparkle as that doesn’t do well under my eyes and only acts to put a spotlight on my puffiness and finer lines! I quickly glanced over the ingreidents and it is formulated with some amazing oils.

Cocos Nucifera (Organic Coconut) Oil, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter), Candelilla Wax, Sesamum Indicum (Sesame) Seed Oil, Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa Butter), Ricinus Communis (Castor) Oil, Hydrolyzed Jojoba Esters, Jojoba Esters, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Flower Wax, Coffea Arabica (Coffee) Oil, Caffeine, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Fruit Extract, Sodium Hyaluronate, Citrullus Lanatus (Watermelon) Seed Oil, Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Bismuth Oxychloride (Natural Mineral), Menthyl PCA, Rosehip Seed Oil, Ethylhexyl Hydroxystearate, Camellia Japonica (Tsubaki) Seed Oil, Melia Azadirachta (Neem) Extract, Moringa Pterygosperma (Moringa) Seed Oil, Rosa Damascena (Bulgarian Rose) Oil.

What do you think of this formula?

    I have never used oil under my eyes during the day. That makes me a little nervous as far as putting concealer on over it and having it last. Does that make a difference?

      I’ve used oil under my eyes in the day! I have super dry eyes and it never harmed anything! I just set my concealer with powder and it holds ;-D

    IDK. I’d try a sample first. Makes me think milia. Some decent ingredients here, though.
