This handy radiance boost pen needs to be a staple in your makeup collection.  Sold in six different shades, not only does this product help add brightness to dark circles!

This full coverage, pink toned cream will help create the illusion of plumped, smooth skin while adding luminance to the dark circles that form under the eyes. One of the main reasons we love this product is because it won’t settle into fine lines and wrinkles, so it stays sleek and smooth all day long.

With hundreds of raving reviews and continuously being sold out, it’s quite apparent that Smashbox is doing something right. For an affordable price, this under eye brightener will help add radiance while covering up your lack of sleep.

Not only does this product deliver vitamin E and grape seed extract to the under eye area, but this lightweight illuminator can double as a cheek highlighter. This product is ideal for those of you that tend to have a dry under eye area as it adds nutrients and moisture back into the skin.
