Our under-eye area refuses to be our friend. We treat it so nicely. We pat it delicately with creams, let it relax under eye masks and roll over it so gently with our cooling jade roller. But still, we can’t win. It puffs up, blackens with fatigue and eats up our concealer like a lion after its prey. We’d prefer to just get along, but if we can’t, we’re going to make sure we come out on top, with eyes bright and sparkling in the spotlight, no matter what it takes. In other words, we’re going to need a little help.

One shopper called this powder a “game changer” for their dark circles, while another was relieved to have “finally found a powder that keeps eyeliner from smudging.” Others commented on how it soaks up any of the excess oil on their face all the while brightening them up. Many are big fans of using this “silky and soft” powder for baking, too, helping them to achieve a flawless finish.
This “light-as-air” powder claims to have an invisible brightening effect, hence why it’s a “secret.” It’s a mostly transparent powder with just the lightest touch of sheer coverage for smoothing out skin, giving us that blurred, air-brushed effect.

This powder claims not to settle into any fine lines or accentuate our eye bags and any shadows they cast. It’s made of micronized pigments, which may help to eliminate the cakiness that creeps up on us while we’re layering products.
