Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! <3 Love this concealer. I read on amazon reviews that it was like glittery, but after trying it on and walking into the sun to inspect I haven't noticed any glitter effect. This is perfect because I intend to also use it on acne when I need to! I just use a tiny amount, and this has great coverage. I love this product and am happy that I purchased it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A great "coverage" tool! This is my "I don't leave home without it" make up. Here's the thing, it's not great as a brightener under your eyes. I do use it for that but I use a moisturizing concealer first and just dab a little of this in the darkest spots and blend. It will dry out your skin under your eyes and hasten your wrinkle development. HOWEVER, this is the best makeup to cover up a pimple, blemish or dark spot. It stays where you brush it on and will make your blemish virtually disappear. My routine is this- moisturize, use "well rested" to cover up spots and blemishes, then use foundation powder all over. The result is fabulous.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not sure about this stuff Based on the reviews, it seems that people really like this stuff, but for me, it looks freaky around my eyes. It goes on too white, and it makes me look really tired and puffy. It does not look natural at all to me. I have tried it on top of the bare minerals cc eye primer. I don't know how to make it work. So far, my most favorite concealer is the bisque. It looks natural and it goes on so fast! When I use the cc eye primer, it takes me awhile to get it on right. If I just use the bisque, over a silicone based primer (not the cc eye primer) it goes on very quickly and lasts all day. I save myself a lot time in the morning and when I look in the mirror during the day, it looks much more natural. I think that I will stick with the bisque.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for pale girls with yellow undertones! I wear bare minerals original foundation in "Fairly Light" and this works perfectly with it!! I am one of those rare people that has pale skin that actually can tan really well, only I choose to protect myself from the sun and stay fair. The only problem with that is usually it's so hard to find shades that match my skin! But this concealer does. It seems like everything made for fair skin has pink undertones, since fair people usually have skin types that burn in the sun. But since I have yellow undertones it can be very frustrating to find things light enough to match me since people assume that if you have yellow undertones you must love to tan because you can. Anyways, this has full coverage of my under eye circles and is slightly lighter than the Fairly Light foundation so I also can use it as a very subtle highlighter on the bridge of my nose and top of my cheekbones. Works best with the Bare Minerals concealer brush, if you don't have that already you should get it, that brush is amazing too. This also doesn't settle into any lines and lasts all day, doesn't rub off easily. I have combination type skin. I hope they never discontinue this product, best concealer I have ever used and my makeup doesn't look perfect and complete until I use it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Sorry this didn't work out for me I don't know quite what to do with this product. I thought it might take some of the redness from my eyelids, but it is just a yellowy white shadow. I have green eyes and reddish skin tone. Just not working for me. will put it in my box of cosmetics to give to my grandaughter, hopefully it will be good for her.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not for me I just didn't have any luck with this product at all. Every time I used it people told me I looked puffy. Or tired. I can look puffy and tired for free! Thank you tho

Rated 3 out of 5 by from For Fair Skinned People. I'm not too sure if this is the right way to use this item but this is how I use it. I put it under my eyes and on the eye lids before I put on my foundation. Only because I find that it is pretty yellow if I put it over the foundation to get that 'well rested' look. It certainly works well that way however, I guess it would become more like a concealer. I am really FAIR skinned so if I put it over top of the foundation it looks terrible. Just in case there were any other fair skinned people looking at this item.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Too yellow for fair girls I was so excited to try this product that I bought the full size. It is far to yellow for fair skin with cool undertones. I tries using a precision brush and applying it only over blue under eye circles...and it still showed up "yellow" next to my skin. It is unwearable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love Bare Minerals I use well rested eye brightner to cover red splotches on my face and it works great. I also use it to cover bags under my eyes. I've used bare minerals for several years now and love the products. I do sometimes get caking if I have hot flashes and perspire a lot, but I think that would be true of any make-up.

Q & A

Is this product good for concealing pores and acne?

I've heard great things about this. I often get dark circles under my eyes due to lack of sleep (thanks college), but if this doubles as a concealer it's a must have! So, does it?
Asked by: Pimanee
I use this to conceal acne and it works great. I have more of yellow toned very fair skin, though. If your skin is more pink toned I would suggest the bisque shade. That shade was to dark and pink for me.

can well-rested eye brightener work for highlighting ?

I'm new to the world of makeup and new to BM as well and lately I've been really liking the conturing and highlighting look. I've heard that well-rested eye brightener works for highlighting? i mean can an eye brightener be used for highlighting other areas other than the eye area?
Asked by: Aria
YES YES YES! It's kind of fun to play around and experiment with this product. I use it in my inner eyes, down the center of my nose, cheekbones, cupids bow and around my lips. Play around with it. You'll love it!

about Nano

Does the well-rested brightener contains the microparticles (nanoparticles) or is it not nano?

Bare minerals eye brightener how to apply it (well rested)

Not sure how to apply
Asked by: Camden
I use a Flawless Face brush to apply this - maybe the size of this brush is a bit overkill, but it works. I use the same Swirl &amp; Tap process that BE suggests, and then I close each eye and lightly buff it both underneath and over the eyelid. After that, I use my fingers to squeeze the brush into a thick line and get up to the eyelashes for all around brightness.

What has better coverage: the SPF 20 concealer or the Well-Rested SPF 20 Eye Brightener?

I have dark circles and want to know which product is likely to work better for me. Super sensitive skin, too!
Asked by: Brynn
Since you have super sensitive skin, you may have to try a few different things. The Correcting concealer (the creamy version) works well under my eyes to even out skin tone, as does the Stroke of Light. The Well Rested Powder does some concealing, but in my experience it does not last all-day without either the concealer or Stroke of Light underneath.

Is Eye Brightener gluten-free?

So many BM products sound like they might be gluten-free but scientific names are not easy to determine if they are gluten-free unless sources are given. It is necessary to know what products contain gluten for millions in the US alone. No concealers are listed under your &quot;products containing gluten&quot; but I wonder if the list needs updating. Thank you.
