Either the server is overloaded or there is an error in the application.Cosmo beauty team went ahead and rounded up five truly excellent products to kick things off, including a silky-smooth eye serum, a concealer that hides the darkest of dark circles, and a crazy-volumizing mascara. Pls enjoy.
This baby is thiiiiick in the best, most excellent way possible. It covers dark circles, majorly red zits, and really any mark or scar on your face—all without looking cakey or feeling heavy, thanks to its hydrating dose of squalane. I blend it out with my damp Beautyblender (the way you’re supposed to use your Beautyblender, heads up), and I’m left with a semi-matte, natural-looking finish. Love it.

NGL, I’m definitely a lash extensions girl (I mean, they make life so easy). But lately, I’ve been giving my natural lashes a little break and instead reaching for this mascara. And guys—my lashes look really, really freakin’ good. Like, “Wait, are you back on your extensions habit?” good.
The tapered brush has a mix of short and long bristles, so you’re able to coat every single lash, even the small bb ones in the corners. It also gently grips your lashes from the root and adds lift and volume—basically, it’s a push-up bra for your lashes. Plus, there’s vitamin E in the formula to condition your lashes. Seriously, what’s not to love?
After getting a sneak peek at Dermalogica’s brand-spanking-new eye serum last month, I’ve basically been counting down the days until its official launch. Unlike the majority of under-eye creams—which are usually too thick and creamy for my liking—this formula is incredibly lightweight and silky. I just tap it under and around my eyes with my ring finger, and its combination of skin-brightening vitamin C, de-puffing chia-seed oil, and hydrating mushroom extract blends right in.
I know it sounds wild to use a scalp scrub on bleached hair, but hear me out: After I get my double-process, my scalp always feels tight (bleach is no joke and it dries out the skin on your scalp), and then tiny dry flakes appear several days later. So while I use Olaplex to keep my strands from looking like straw, I use this sugar scrub once a week to gently slough away the dry skin on my head.
Sexy, I know, but sugar is actually a nondrying exfoliant and dissolves quickly enough to do its job without damaging your skin. I mix it with my Briogeo purple shampoo, massage it around, and rinse it out for a flake-free finish.
Finally, a concealer that covers up my dark circles without looking like a thick, cakey mess. The puff tip dispenses a sheer, lightweight concealer that has juuust a hint of sparkle to hide discoloration and brighten my eye area without settling into fine lines or creases. 10/10 would recommend.
