1,900 people each month still search for the NYX Dark Circle Concealer  around the world despite it being dropped from the brand.

The peach-toned correctors work to disguise the look of dark or purple rings, meaning that your under-eyes appear brighter and more fresh looking.

Featuring six balancing shades at a similar price, the NYX Professional Makeup 3C Palette Color Correcting Concealer is the ultimate colour corrector at just £12 via the LOOKFANTASTIC website.

For a single shade alternative, the beauty retailer suggests Bobbi Brown’s Creamy Corrector in ‘Dark Peach’ which comes in various shades and only costs £21.50 via the LOOKFANTASTIC website.

DISCONTINUED: Becca Under Eye Brightener

After Becca shut its doors for good in 2021, fans of its legendary eye-brightener were left heartbroken.

But their misery is over because Makeup Revolution’s Eye Bright Under-Eye Corrector is the next best thing. 

The lightweight corrector, priced at £6, helps awaken tired-looking eyes with its clever formula that features light-reflecting pigments and castor seed oil.

It is coming soon to the LOOKFANTASTIC website, check if it's in now.

When we lost Becca, we also lost its glorious Champagne Pop Highlighter that gained cult status in many a makeup bag due to its natural-looking coverage. 

But all is not lost because you can get that instant holographic glow elsewhere with this Wet N' Wild MegaGlo Highlighting Powder.

With its shimmery pigment, you get a golden, pearlescent finish for currently £3.74 ( RRP £4.99) via the LOOKFANTASTIC website.

DISCONTINUED: benefit Zings Eyebrow Kit

Benefit's Zings Eyebrow Kit featured two pans – one powder and one waxy formula to shape, define and set your brows in an instant. 

It covered all your bases with two brow brushes and a pair of portable tweezers except that you can't actually add it to your basket anymore.

Thankfully, the Sleek MakeUP ( £8.49) is on hand with a Brow Kit that is not a far stretch from the benefit version.

The Brow Kit which holds wax and powder formulas with a handy mirror is coming soon to the LOOKFANTASTIC website, check if it's in now.
