I'll be the first to admit, I've tried my fair share of under-eye products to hide my dark circles, all to no avail. I'm talking about everything from color correctors and different concealer formulas to brightening eye creams. Regardless of the product, I always ended up with the same results: either it fades after a long day or doesn't actually hide anything dark shadows in the first place. With no luck, I've even started to consider getting a filler to hide my circles.

Then I found this viral TikTok video about Becca Cosmetics Under Eye Brightening Corrector (Buy It, $32, sephora.com). It's the latest under-eye product to take the beauty world by storm, and for good reason: It actually works.

After watching the video from Flexylexxy showing off the effectiveness of the Becca Cosmetics product, I immediately ordered it online. During the video, she calls the corrector "absolutely insane" while showing off her now-nonexistent under-eye circles. That's exactly what I wanted — a magic solution (don't we all?) to make my dark circles vanish.

When I first tried the corrector, I was a little skeptical. Its peachy-pink formula looked more like a lip balm than an under-eye product. And, since it has a pearly pink color, I feared it would make my face look glittery. But all my fears were for nothing. The Becca Cosmetics Under Eye Brightening Corrector glides on super easily with just a couple of swipes, and blends in seamlessly when applied gently with a ring finger. (BTW, that's exactly how you should be applying eye creams.) Plus, you can wear it alone or under concealer for even more coverage. Although it comes in just two shades, light to medium and medium to dark, the flawless results shown on all different skin tones throughout the TikTok community prove its versatility.

And get this: While my mask-wearing usually accentuates my under-eye circles, I was actually complimented on my supermarket run for how bright and fresh I looked. Since that first use, I've worn it almost every day through Zoom meetings and no longer need to worry that my dark circles make it seem as if I just rolled out of bed.

I'm not the only one who feels this way. With more than 700,000 views, the original TikTok video has led the corrector to become a top-selling product in both Sephora and Ulta. (You can also buy it on Amazon.) That one video spurred hundreds more TikTok reviews of the product, and sales on the product went up more than 427 percent at Ulta since the first video was posted, according to a rep for the store.

Reviewers on Sephora agree with me, claiming that it's a "must-have for dark circles." One reviewer writes, "this is such a winner for me. I've spent my whole make-up wearing life testing concealer after concealer, spending so much money trying to hide the genetic bags and dark circles under my eyes. In recent years, better skin care has helped. But this has changed the game." Another wrote, "I have very bad dark under eyes, and this is literally the only product that has helped cover them up."

The secret to the under-eye corrector's brightening formula is a few special ingredients: peach and apricot tinted pigments, Becca's backlight technology, and vitamin E. The pigments help color correct and neutralize blue tones underneath the eyes, Becca's backlit technology helps to instantly brighten and illuminate skin, and vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant that helps protect skin cells from damage. So while this under-eye corrector's main brightening effect is at work while you're wearing it, it has some longer-term skin benefits as well.

If you've been on the hunt for an under-eye corrector that actually works, your search ends here. I can guarantee that purchasing the Becca Cosmetics Under-Eye Brightening Corrector will be one of your favorite buys of all time. While it might be a bit pricier than other under-eye correctors, the results are worth every penny — plus, not having to worry about dark circles peeking out from your mask, on Zoom calls, or IRL is totally worth the price, IMO.
