Well-Rested Face and Eye Brightener
Needs more work on the dispensing
I got the Well Rested Face and Eye Brightener on the advice of a consultant at my local BE botique. It took me a while to get the product to dispense properly and I never knew for sure how much was going to come out and especially if the tube was truely empty. It apparently has finished dispensing after only a week or two of use. Definitely not a value for my money! This is the only BE product I have ever felt unhappy enough about to write a negative review. I hope they will reconsider the packaging, the product is good, but not worth it in this form.
Just what I wanted
This stuff is great!! It's not a concealer ladies. So if you're wanting to cover really dark circles pick something else. This is just to brighten up that under eye area or other areas you want highlighted. It just gives you that little bit extra glow that is subtle but amazing!! Also it's so light so it doesn't sink into your fine lines. You will love this, it does exactly what it says it will do.
The consultant at my Bare Minerals store recommended the liquid over the powder version of this product, so I went with this one. Truly a great product...I apply it under my eyes, right under my browbone and anywhere else I need a little magic. There is no shimmer or glitter so it looks very natural. It is most definitely not a concealer...this is the last thing I put on before walking out the door. 4 stars because the cap is a nuisance. If I push it down all the way I have a VERY difficult time getting it off. Leaving it slightly uncapped but still securely on has been a better option for me.
I am the queen of dark circles...
I'll admit, I was very skeptical. I have genetic very dark under-eye circles (thanks, mom!) that make me look like I never get any sleep...which, (who am I kidding?) is partially true. I had tried other dark circle cover-ups in the past with only minimal results.
First off, this product is easy to put on and FAST acting. It only took about a minute, or two, to see a HUGE difference. I was amazed at how natural my eyes looked - and the best part was that my dark circles were practically gone!
I am soooo glad I found this product! Once again, bareMinerals, you have wowed me. Thank you, thank you, thank you! I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for an under-eye dark circle fix that really does work - no gimmicks.
Skeptical at first but surprised!
When I was first shown this product, I was a little skeptical at first. When I first tried it, I thought it didn't work. Now I've used it everyday and it works wonders around the eyes. Having light skin my eyes look dark. I always used to use concealer to cover my eyes. Now I no longer need to use that much concealer. This product brightens up my eyes so naturally it looks amazing!!!! Thank you so much for this !!!!!
Goodbye Sleepy Eyes!
This product works really well for me! I have fair skin so dark eyes make me look deathly, and this helps boost the concealer I put over top of it!
Not a concealer!!
This product is NOT a concealer, and it makes no claims to be. It's a brightener. Watch the video if you're unsure how to use this, or read other reviews, the gals give pretty good instructions.
This is part of my daily routine. I use this, concealer, the well rested powder, stroke of light, and the brightening eye primer. Why do I do this? Because it WORKS! I have terrible dark circles. I'm a grad student, I'm up late studying and up early to work out before class and work. Yet I look great every day.
This brightener does exactly what it says it does, for my eyes and for my face (I do use it on occasion above my upper lip). What miracles, get the whole team and enjoy the results.
And as for how long it lasts. Don't over use it and it will last months, remember, it's a brightener, not a concealer. I've noticed that those of my friends and family who go through this a lot tend to try and use it as concealer, so they use a ton of product compared to what I use.
Well-Rested Face and Eye Brightener
I wasn't sure if I was going to like this product; it's not a concealer, it is just a brightener. However, I have learned to love it! It especially helps me on the days where I am extra tired and my eyes need a little perking up. I usually usually put it on after my concealer for a little more brightening up. Overall a great product if you're looking for something to brighten your complexion.
Remember, it's not a concealer; it's a brightener! If you're looking for a concealer, try the Correcting Concealer or the Bisque powder concealer.
Tip: After getting some product on the applicator, tap it onto your eye, brow bone, etc. and then pat/roll the product till it is absorbed.
Brightens Eyes & Minimizes Dark Circles/Blemishes
This product is great for brightening under eyes and minimizing dark circles/puffiness. I would not say that it gets rid of dark circles completely, but minimizes them so that it's not noticeable.
The one thing I don't like is the applicator. When first receiving the product, you do have to click it about 3-5 times in order for the product to "start flowing". What I like to do to conserve is brush the areas I need with the applicator and then blend in using my fingers. It is easier to even out, rather than using the applicator brush. I also use it to cover up/minimize blemishes as well.
I'm really enjoying this brightener. I'm confused as to why people think it's a concealer - it's not, nor does the description claim to be. I use this brightener along with my Well Rested Concealer and the results are subtly beautiful. I use the concealer for my dark circles, and dot the brightener along the tops of my cheekbones and slightly over the dark circles. Like I said, the effect is subtle - nothing earth shattering, but combining this with other concealers does brighten the look around my eyes (not just under them).
I agree the applicator could be changed to be more useful - I blend it with my finger instead. I recommend for those looking for a highlighter without all the shimmer!
