Well-Rested Face and Eye Brightener
Dont waste your money on this. The product is decent but the packaging ruins it. Ive owned it for months and it's still a hassle every morning. You never get out the right amount and it take forever to get it out.
Brightens it up!
This product is great at brightening it up under the eyes, as specified. It is light weight and easy to put on.
The applicator is not exactly my ideal. I would rather it be like the stroke of brightness. For this one, I click it out and put it on my finger to apply.
It goes on weightlessly, and can layer on concealer easily. It does need to be layered if youre looking to conceal, because while it brightens, it really doesn't conceal that well.
Cover your dark circles - ALL DAY!
Perfect for DARK circles. This is NOT a concealer. At the BM store they showed me how to use it properly. I have SEVERE dark circles and have spent thousands trying to cover them. This WORKS like a CHARM. 1. Apply BM moisturizing eye creme 2. Apply a small amount of Well Rested about 3 clicks, 3. With a fluffy brush load it with your fav BM mineral foundation and tap over under eye 4. Repeat with brush and mineral veil. LASTS 12 hrs, no creasing, no fading, no settling in lines, no reverse raccoon. What are you waiting for? Click add to bag now!
pass on this
I tried it but it was a hassle to use with the bruch applicator. The one I purchased only had 3 uses. What a disappointment.
I am disappointed by so many reviews bashing this product because it doesn't conceal. This product never claimed to conceal like the powder, only brighten. And it does exactly that. When I first was turned on to BE, I went to a boutique and the girl that worked with me used this on my eyes first, and then the Well Rested concealer powder. The two together, in her words, "look bomb!" For someone with dark circles like me, you cannot rely on this product solely, but it is great for highlighting.
In terms of the dispenser, I don't really like the brush - its easiest for me to wipe the product on my finger and use it that way instead of using the brush. The first time you use it you will have to click it a lot #and I do mean a lot# for the product to start coming up, but then for each use after that, I use about 3 clicks to cover both eyes. I can't totally speak for how long this lasts, but I've been using it so far every day for 3 months and it isn't showing signs of running out yet, so I think it is definitely worth the cost.
Frustrating delivery system
I love the product itself, but the delivery system is a hassle to use. I can twist the dial for a minute or so before product comes out. The price does not justify the amount of product that is ultimately delivered. The product prevents creasing of eyeshadow, which is awesome. Unfortunately, I will have to go back to the powder form.
Not worth it
I got this as part of a set and was disappointed with it. It lasted for a very short time compared to all my other BareMinerals products (maybe a month, if that). You can't actually apply it with the brush- you have to rub it in with your finger, and it didn't really seem to make much of a difference once applied.
amazing ...pros and cons
pros love the coverage, i bought it in a small combo with brightener, eye primer, and mineral veil, if used in that order it provides perfect brightening for under eyes and eyelids..its more of a highlighter for tired eyes than a concealer, best eye highlighter I've used in 25 yrs!!
cons, the applicator has issues, i thought it was a bad one until i read the reviews i wondered if i had left the lid unsecured and it dried out so the next time i used it i turned the dial more still nothing then next time i opened it gushes of wasted product? just wait it will come out onto the brush eventually i guess??
Well rested face and eye brightener
Difficult to smooth out...container doesn't distribute easily. Not nearly as efficient as original powder form...will go back to that.
Essentially did nothing.
I've used MANY eye illuminators, this was the first time using this brand's.... So disappointed. Really. It essentially did nothing at all. I tried it many different ways, from putting it on before my concealer all the way to putting it on after my Ready foundation. It didn't make any difference at all. Frankly, to be honest, a drug store brand that costs 1/4 of the price has done a better job IMO of "illuminating" the eye area to take away from dark circles.
I suppose if youre looking for an overall face highlighting product this might be what you would be looking for, but if you're looking for strictly under eye / dark circle concealer/highlight/illuminating then look elsewhere.
I have given it 2 stars b/c it is a very light weight product which makes it easily blendable so you could use it over your foundation and not have the product smudge or cake up - but thats the only reason it did not get 1 star. Which is sad b/c I was hoping this would be an amazing product.
I am sure other people have different opinions, but for me, this did not work.
