It's Potent! Eye Cream...Is It, Actually?

I detest my genetically inherited dark undereye circles. I'm forevermore trying to find a product that will help diminish them, if not make them disappear completely (a girl can dream, right?). They really age me and make me look like I'm tired and haggard. Doesn't matter how much sleep I get. Really, I've come to expect that there isn't anything out there to treat this, short of seeing a plastic surgeon, but I keep hoping that the great minds of cosmetic science will stumble upon the answer to this dillemma that a great many of us gals (& guys) have. So when the sweet rep at Ulta gushed about how fab Benefit's It's Potent! Eye Cream was, and how she herself used it with great results, I was suckered in.

Why I recommend it:

Stila Stay All Day Eye Liner...Well, Does It?

So you already know that I've been hunting "the" eyeliner.

I used Ulta's refund policy and exchanged the Essence Liner I reviewed previously, because it was not waterproof, and DID transfer to the tops of my eyes.
After speaking with a couple of the helpful employees, I decided to try out
Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner.
