First of all, if you are prone to really dark circles, there are no products out there that will be a miracle and cover them perfectly. This Garnier product sure does a pretty good job at it though! Starting off, the rolling tip is great for application! I don't waste any product, and it glides on very smoothly, and only takes a second to finish blending in with a finger.. The make-up covers pretty well- it is not perfect, but it improves dark circles a ton. I've bought a lot of products for dark circles, and spent a range of different amounts, and this product holds up well to all of them at a fraction of the cost. This product also tends to lighten up the area a bit, and has some reflective qualities, which really helps with looking tired through the day. It does sometimes wear off partway through my day, but it's a compact size that's easy to carry around, and easy to apply, so that's not a really big problem. Absorption I never feel like I have make-up caked on top of my skin with this product.
