Well-Rested Face and Eye Brightener
Don't Do It!!! It does nothing...get the "Stroke of Light" instead!
Sorry, but I just don't get it. It's so thin, even used purely for a bit of light reflection, certainly not a concealer...it's not even buildable. I tried four layers on the back of my hand...noth. I hate spending good money on something and not being able to get some kind of use out of it, but I think I'm giving up on this one and tossing it.
Great pick me up -
This works really well at just adding a bit of light to either dark circles or puffy eyes so they are not as noticeable. It is not a concealer so it wont hide anything - but if you are in a rush and have no time for the full make-up effect - it's rather clear in color - almost nude but adds just enough highlight to brighten under eye or in the corner of the lid to make those little flaws less noticeable. I sometimes do not have time for make up - but this under my eyes is just enough to make the unflattering puffy or dark circles less noticeable.
I don't get it, this product does nothing except make your skin moist. No coverage, no brightening effect.
I agree with just about all of the other reviews -- the dispenser could use some work (or just eliminate the brush tip; you need your finger to pat it dry and even anyway). The amount is far too little for for cost -- $22 for 0.1ml? Ok... I'd deal with the cost if it was a great product, but I haven't found it to be. If I use it for under-eye brightening, adding concealer on top dulls the effect and creates a dry, flaky look, so the finish is definitely not smooth or even, and the "bright eyes" look is pretty much where it would be with only concealer. I've used it as a highlighter for other areas like brow bone or cheekbone, but beware the light you plan to be under. In front of my lighted cosmetic mirror, it looked subtle and even, but in daylight it was just too obvious where the product was on my face. I love this company, but the price and claim of this product are not right.
Terrible Packaging Design
I really wanted to love this product...if only I could get the packaging open. When using this product, I have to remember to open it before I put any lotion on in the morning. So if I happen to forget this, then forget about getting it open, my hands slide right off the tube. I definitely won't be buying this again and will be buying a different cover up in the future, probably one with a twist off lid.
I got this with a set I received as a Christmas gift. I had run out of my Bisque concealer, so I tried it out. Not impressed! It did not cover anything! It took forever to get the stuff out onto the brush too. All this did was make my face sticky . It would not dry, so I couldn't apply the rest of my makeup without having a patch under my eves from this stuff. I honestly can't believe there are people who love it. I threw it in the trash! I'm very glad I didn't waste my own money on this stuff! If you want to really cover your dark circles and blemishes, get the concealer powder. It's probably my favorite Bare Minerals product.
Touch Of Light
Adds the perfect highlight to your cheeks,nose above the brow. One of my favorite products and a must have!
Not a fan
I wanted to my hand at illuminating/eye brightening but this item is not doing the trick. I don't have dark circles luckily but this product would not conceal them if I did. It takes forever to get the product started and then it doesn't last long. I generally didn't even like the look of it afterward - I think it enhanced under eye lines and my dry skin. Luckily this came as a freebie b/c I would have returned this if I actually paid for it.
I love this product! I have dark circles and this just takes the edge off, without looking cakey or thick. I put it over my tinted moisturizer (just around the eye area) and then dust with some mineral veil or bare minerals foundation. It doesn't look like I am wearing makeup. Do not overuse and you will love this product. It lasts me a couple months, as I only use it around my eyes, or anywhere I need a little brightening! I did not find that it made wrinkles more pronounced as mentioned in another review. In fact, I have VERY dry skin and this is the only product that does not make my eye area look dry! I never want to run out of my Well Rested Face and Eye Brightener... A lower price would be wonderful!
Simple and Beautiful!
While unwrapping this I thought to myself, "Oh My! I just know I am going to make a mess and make huge bright circles around my eyes!". How wrong was I!!! This blends and brightens you right up and it's so simple for the difference this product makes for your eyes I am super happy and excited! My only issue is the price... I just wish it was priced a little more reasonable. I am giving this a 8 on the hearts rating due to price, not the product itself. :o)
