Well-Rested CC Eye Primer
Good product, preventive packaging
I bought this on a whim because I'm trying to find a replacement for a questionable-quality tinted under eye roller that I've used for years. I love the product, but it's almost impossible to use unless you store it in a refrigerator. I keep it at a normal room temp, and it just keeps breaking off. I won't buy it again for this reason, but I'd love to see it formulated better or with new packaging so it doesn't break off.
As far as the product itself, I use it under concealer for some added coverage and staying power on my oily skin. I like it for that, but it just isn't a standout in the market, so I'll probably move on and try what the next brand has to offer in this department.
great with some added changes.
I am 49 yrs have been using this product for over a year. People are correct in saying it breaks up. I found that it was to stiff for the delicate skin under my eyes.. so I broke off chunks and blended it with my eye cream. Keep in a sealed jar. If start to dry out add more cream. It works great. I seal it with well rested powder. So I'm getting double the benefits by adding my eye cream, and making it smoother more blendable. Covers better
Doesn't measure up
I'm usually impressed by Bare Minerals products, which is why I was tempted to try this despite some negative reviews. I'm sad to say, now I agree with them. I was surprised at how thin the coverage was - it doesn't cover the thin skin around my eyes and you can still see my veins/blood vessels clearly. It's almost like a very sheer primer - definitely NOT a CC. And then it falls into creases under my eyes as the day goes on, which I was horrified to find makes it look like I have wrinkly eyes. I won't be buying this again and would not recommend it.
Best product ever!
I'm 47 with hereditary bags under my eyes. I have tried so many products to reduce puffiness and cover the dark circles with no luck until this magic product.
The first time I used it the color correction was perfect (I'm neutral tone medium) and it felt great. Today I noticed a significant reduction in eye puffiness, so much so that I took my mirror outside to double check. I've been using it for about a week. I'm amazed. I will always have this product in hand.
Use brush to apply
This works fine, but I do feel like it accentuates my fine lines a little bit. I recommend applying it with a brush, since other users have complained that it is sticky and breaks.
I like almost all of the bare minerals products that i have used, including this one, but....it breaks every tube that I buy. When it gets near the end of the stick, as careful as I am, don't wind it up very far and use my finger and dab it, it still breaks.
I was very excited to use this under my eyes to help cover any darkness or uneven skin. I'm 28 years old and have a few fine lines under my eyes. When using this, the fine lines are exaggerated and look deeper. The product itself goes on smooth, but becomes quite sticky if it sits for very long, which makes it difficult to blend in. Also, one day while I was putting it on, the tip of the product broke completely off!!!! It's a chunk about the size of what is shown in the picture. So now I have the already small amount of product broken. The small piece that broke off, I've been using with my hands because I don't want to waste any of it since it's not cheap. But then every time I use it, I remember why I don't often use it. :( Very very disappointing as I LOVE my ready foundation and mineral veil and all of my other face products from Bare Minerals.
Working great for dark circles
First of all I want to be clear, I have gray/blue eyes and medium skin. I think it's really important with this product that you find the right shade for yourself, otherwise the skin color around you eyes will differ from the rest of your face.
I bought this product on a whim and I'm so glad I did!
I occasionally have dark circles when I'm tired or just having a bad skin day, I just rub a little bit on my eye lids and underneath my eyes and BOOM no more dark circles!!
And the best park about this product? It doesn't clump at all. :)
yes and no
Love this product but it is very small for the price so i am not sure if i will buy again. But i love it as highlighter and for under eyes. Im fair skin so this works well for me and really does brighten up my eyes wish is good because i wear glasses. :). However i feel it is way over priced it is very small amount. :(
What I've been looking for...
This is exactly what I've been looking for to use under my powdered Well Rested. It helps the staying power, adds coverage, and keeps the powdered form from settling into my fine lines under my eyes. However, I too experienced the product breaking after just a few uses and I feel that you don't really get enough product for the money. (I ran through mine super fast) Please change the packaging on this!!! Other than that, it's a great product.
