Well-Rested Eye Brightener Broad Spectrum SPF 20
I bought this with SOME skepticism in mind. I love Bare Minerals, they're my go to product all of the time. So, I was skeptical because everyone says this eye product is great and this other product is great. Anyways, I tried this one day when I had maybe 2 hours of sleep for a 10 hour shift, my dark circles looked bad. I put this on under my foundation....sincerely surprised. You could not even tell I hadn't slept well, this brightened under my eyes so nicely WITHOUT that weird "I've obviously caked on a light shadow under my eyes and created a white raccoon" effect. This blends beautifully without that weird ultra bright raccoon effect some products give you. I even use it to highlight my brow bones, my nose, my cupid's bow and just above the cheekbone for some subtle light. It even helps cover a red spot, pimple or a dark patch on your face pretty darn well. Amazing! So happy!
I love this product! Actually I love all BE products. This one is awesome because its a sunscreen, concealer, eye brightener and redness reducer all in one. It's got great coverage and great for all skin types. It hides my acne spots well.
More uses than you know!
I actually use this concealer to cover the red blemishes that I've gotten over the years from various medications, as well as using it to cover some age spots and brighten up those pesky dark circles under my eyes. Works great under my Original foundation powder. For really dark red spots, I mix it with just a little light green matte eye shadow!
What dark circles?
I'm very genetically lucky, as I have never gotten dark circles no how matter how late I was up the night before. HOWEVER, this is the favorite item in my make-up bag. It is a better concealer than any I've tried before. I also use it along my nose, and it adds brightness wherever needed. It blends beautifully with all the other BM products. I could go without a lot of products, but I can't imagine living without this one!
beware the glitter!
This would be a slam dunk & HG under eye powder if it weren't for the glitter in it. In direct light you can really see it - looks like shimmery eye shadow! Why?! bareMinerals, grown women don't want glitter on their faces. Wish they would stop adding it to so many products. Glittery is NOT brightening, it is just… glitter. The tricky part is that it you can't see it in unnatural, indoor light. I thought it looked fabulous in the store mirror. Blurs lines & adds coverage. But then outside in sunlight you look like a crazy person. Too bad.
No more dark circles
I got this product when I was a college student--a student who rarely got eight hours of sleep due to work and school commitments. This product was my lifeline---it hid dark circles and undereye bags like a charm. I always looked rested and awake when I used this--I used to trick my friends into thinking I always got plenty of sleep!
Made me happy
Like others have said, I too, have dark circles under my eyes. I've had them forever and have tried everything under the sun to make them look a little less...dark. I started using Bare Minerals a year ago and was excited by the concealer in Bisque. It lightened the dark circles a bit and I thought that was the best I could hope for. Then, I recently came across this product and am even happier!
I have always had dark circles under my eyes. The well rested duo is amazing! The powder part of it really does conceal the darkness well, and it has light-reflecting particles to help it appear even brighter.
My only complaint is that it does not last all day for me. The Stroke of Light does, so sometimes I'll put that underneath the Well Rested powder if I know I won't be home for a long time.
IF NOTHING ELSE - BUY THIS
I have worn well-rested for years and it is my daily go-to! If NOTHING else, ladies - you MUST wear this. You don't even need any other eye make-up! Just put on some well-rested and even you'll be amazed how well-rested (pun intended) you look. Seriously - don't leave home without this!
Sought this product out for brightening
I specifically went to the store to get this product. The consultant was so helpful, she listened to my needs to cover under eye darkness. She tried this product and another on me, and gave me the best match. I purchased this product, a brush and an illuminating eye product! More than I expected to purchase, but I am so happy to add this to my routine!
