Sunday Riley Auto Correct Brightening and Depuffing Eye Contour Cream $65.00

The product is Sunday Riley's Auto Correct Brightening and Depuffing Eye Contour Cream.

I discovered it through a collaboration Sigma Beauty that was launched a few months back where they created a super-cool set of six skincare brushes that catered to different steps of your skincare routine. In addition to the set of brushes, I also received a few of Sunday Riley's best-selling products, including their Auto Correct brightening and depuffing cream. And as the eye cream and Sunday Riley lover that I am, I couldn't wait to try it.

I use it every. single. morning. After cleansing, toning, and slapping on some moisturizer, I apply a pea-sized dab of the cream underneath my eyes, on the inner and outer corners, as well as my eyelids. I typically use a more intense hydrating eye cream at night because this one is more geared towards brightening and de-puffing. But if I've been looking like Billy Butcherson (ahem, the friendly zombie) in Hocus Pocus, I'll be using Sunday Riley’s contouring cream at night too. 

It smells like… Hmm, it's hard to put my finger on it. Slightly fruity? A little floral? The scent is not at all overpowering, which I love. It just smells … I don't know… pretty? If you can imagine how luxurious cumin, marigold, watermelon, apple, Roman chamomile, and cocoa meld together, you’re right on track with what this dreamy eye cream smells like. 

It changed my life because it's the only eye cream that's physically and instantaneously transformed my dark under-eye circles while simultaneously de-puffing, brightening, and not clogging my pores. It's essentially become my lifeline on both no-makeup and makeup days (I'll pat it on pre-primer on days I'm wearing makeup), and it instantly gives me a real-life Facetune finish.  

I would give it to everyone. 

You should buy it if you experience dark circles, dryness, puffy morning eyes, or sensitivity to products because it's effective yet gentle.

Since I consider myself a bit of a dark-circle connoisseur (and a product hoarder, in general), I'm also including every other eye product I keep in my circle-banishing repertoire. That said, however, even at $65, Sunday Riley's Auto Correct and Depuffing Eye Contour Cream, will always have the number one place in my heart.
