This AMAZING $9 Under-Eye Concealer Is Selling Out

You always want what you can’t have — especially when it comes to beauty products. That’s why we’re getting the inside scoop from your favorite retailers on what’s selling out right now, how to sign up for waitlists, and where to go to find the next best thing. Because if everyone’s buying it, you know it has to be good.

Every summer, when temperatures get closer and closer to triple digits, one thing becomes clear —we can't be bothered with a full face of makeup. Even the thought of buffing on a layer of foundation, no matter how light, sends shivers sweat down our spines as we imagine the inevitable meltdown that will likely occur later that day.
Our solution for complexion perfection on the hottest of days? Just a touch of does-it-all concealer, only where we need it. For years, we've been reaching for Maybelline's Instant Age Rewind — a lightweight, brightening liquid that's super easy to swipe under the eyes to diminish dark circles and subtly highlight the face. No shock here: The rest of the world is gaga for this stuff, too. In fact, we've learned that the twist-up tube is one of the brand's top three best-selling products.

We highly encourage you to give it a whirl this summer, but if you can't get ahold of it — or simply want to try something new — we've rounded up our favorite brightening concealers in the slides ahead, too. All of which will hold up against the dreaded heat waves to come.

For dark under-eye circles, reach for a highly-pigmented concealer like this one from Bobbi Brown. The formula is thicker than any others in this slideshow, but thanks to its full-coverage finish, you can use less. Just a dab will do.

This formula from Too Faced can be used all over your face for on-the-go spot correcting. It has a beautiful skin-like finish, yet somehow manages to also brighten the under-eye area. Plus, thanks to the coconut water in the formula, this baby doesn't cling to dry patches.

Our senior beauty editor swears by the miracle formula in this pink tube. The concealer feels like skin-care, yet provides medium-to-full coverage. It also brightens and firms over time thanks to a hefty dose of vitamins C, E, and caffeine.

Onomie Bright Concealing Elixir, $30, available at Onomie.
