Stroke of Light Eye Brightener - null
Brightening without the Glitter
I love this concealer and brightener. I have it in Luminous 2 and it is yellow, but only just so, so it doesn't clash against my pink-undertoned skin. It is luminous without looking like a disco-ball and is very hydrating, making it perfect for my under eye area. It never creases or looks cakey. It just gives that perfect wide-awake-I-just-slept-like-Sleeping-Beauty look. I set it with the original Well Rested using a small fluffy detail brush and together they eliminate all of the redness under my eyes and around my nose. I use it before my READY foundation in Medium and I get that perfect skin I have always wanted. This is a great product!
Use this tip from my BE consultant!!
I had never found a concealer I liked, until now. They were always too thick, settled into fine lines under my eyes, captured my makeup in those lines, and ended up making things look worse. When I expressed my displeasure with the darkness under my eyes, the consultant at my BE store suggested this product, tried it on me, and gave me some FABULOUS tips for its use: Apply this ON TOP of your foundation, not the other way around, and do not apply it directly to your undereye area with the applicator. Put on your foundation FIRST (an absolute must), then roll the applicator of the Stroke of Light onto the back of your hand so there is a little blob of it. Using your ring finger, pick up a smooth light film of the Stroke of Light and apply and blend it gently into your undereye area. Do NOT buff foundation powder on top of it. (I still use mineral veil as my final makeup step, but I try to keep it away from my undereye area as much as possible.) I am ecstatic with the results, and that is no exaggeration!! My undereyes look soft and smooth, any lines are greatly diminished, and there is no dryness in the area at all; my eyes look bright and lively all day. Best of all, my undereyes seem to look better the longer I use it. I don't ever want to be without this product again. My thanks and praise to the consultant for not only suggesting a great product, but for giving me the tutorial and tips to use it for wonderful results!
Could be better
I like this product better than the well-rested powder and pen, but I feel that it is just "ok" when it could be a really good concealer with a few changes. I like the consistency and the color (it matches with my medium beige foundation perfectly) and it blends well, but I wish it concealed better and did not have the tiny sparkles. Also, half-way through the day seemed settle into my fine lines :( It has good qualities, but could be better.
Dark circles faded away
To my surprise after about 4 weeks of daily use - my dark circles are gone. I had mild discoloration under my eyes - grayish red tone. This concealed the dark areas and gave a healthy glow. Doesn't settle into fine lines. Only a small amount is needed to do the job. I still use this product daily - to brighten up my eye area - has been about 12 weeks now and I still have no dark circles. Thanks BE for getting rid of my raccoon eyes.
It's good..not great
I really like the applicator brush..,and the color of the brightener. I do not like that no matter how long I let it sit before trying to blend..it seems to come right back off. It doesn't seem to set at all. I wish it was maybe a little thicker (only slightly) or something so it would stick on better.
I was unsure if this product would actually work but after reading other reviews I decided to give it a try. Not only did my eyes look amazing but after using it for a week I noticed a dramatic difference in my eyes even when I wasn't wearing it! I will never leave home without it!
I have light skin and pretty severe dark under eye circles that I have been trying to hide for the better part of the last decade. I've tried concealer from numerous cosmetic lines and tried just about every type of concealer I could get my hands on. After feeling like I had tried everything and decided I just needed to come to terms with the fact I could only lighten them and not hide them, I happened to see this. I have become a faithful bare minerals customer and rave about it to everyone. Now I have another product to tell everyone I know about! This product is amazing. It goes on so light and I don't have to use hardly any to completely hide my dark circles. It looks beautiful and blends perfectly to look completely natural. It's simply amazing. I usually have to decide if I want to put concealer thick to cover the circles and in turn accentuate fine lines or the opposite. Not anymore! This covers perfectly and doesn't settle into any fine lines. It actually helps to hide all the fine lines too! It also hides any blemishes and evens out where my skin tone is blotchy. Buy this and you will not only love it but will never need to look for another concealer again!
For concealing serious dark circles, I've found that this product is most effective when applied AFTER foundation and mineral veil. However, it is a fantastic eyelid primer and useful midday touch up "eye awakener".
I love this stuff!
I got a sample of this last time I ordered, and WOW!!! I love it and will definately be ordering a full-size soon! It never wears off or makes fine lines look worse. It very subtly brightens your eyes and looks beautiful!!! And you don't have to use very much.
Favorite Under Eye Concealer
I use this everyday now, and I cannot imagine wearing makeup without it. It completely covers my dark circles and works best if you let it set for about a minute before blending! Its not heavy or sticky like many other concealers out there.
The lady at the Bare Minerals section of Dillard's demoed this product on me and I fell in love! It makes my eyes look awake, brighter, and just fab! I wore it to church with just eyeliner and mascara and looked awesome! I wore it also just alone and still looked great! Today, I'm wearing it to work with my Bare Minerals Matte Foundation and it I'm still looking flawless and just alert. The dark circles are gone and its also a good base for eyeshadow. I recommend this product, especially for women of color! The color doesn't leave you looking white or ashy around the eyes. I have on number 4 :)
Makes such a difference!
I absolutely love this product! I wake up at 4:45am every day to go work out before going to work so some days I have dark circles under my eyes. Well with this product that is not a problem anymore. I just dab a little on and blend it in with a brush and the dark circles are gone. It blends perfectly and I love it!
Will be getting the full size
I got the baby size using the BRIGHTEYE code when checking out, and I am really happy with this. I have been putting my foundation on heavier under my eyes to cover up my dark circles (I sleep a solid 8.5 hours a night, so it’s not that). This is super awesome and doesn’t feel thick or cake, and naturally covers the darkness and blends with my natural Fairley Light skin tone easily. You only need a little, so I feel the baby size would last a while because I just stipple it under my eyes and on the sides of the bridge of my nose. I have put it both under my foundation, and when I forget to do it first I put it on over my foundation and either way it looks pretty much the same. So, good for me! I have a friend that has really dark circles and hasn’t found anything that covers it, so I want to get her one so she can try it for herself.
Brightens up the eye area!
I got a sample of Lum1 with my last BE order and I love it! I use it on days where I don't feel like wearing eye make-up. I use a little dab on my eyelids and it helps conceal my veiny eyelids and brighten up the eye area. When worn underneath eyeshadow it helps them stay in place, but I would not use to substitute my existing eye primer. I don't use it under the eye area like suggested because I feel that it get into my lines and conceal much but it's a great brightener. Also handy to highlight cheeks when in a pinch!
can't even tell I put it on
I was very excited to try this product out in the free sample. I have given it several tries and put it on many different ways (blotting, rubbing, using a brush and finger, etc), but everytime I use it, I still have dark circles under my eyes and I have to reapply my old concealer I've been using all along. This concealer is very very light which I like because I hate heavy make up, but the coverage is no good unfortunately. I'm going to try the well rested now....
Not sure what the raves are about...
I was really excited to try this product because of the great reviews and am sad to report that I am less than impressed. Put it on and lightly blended and there is no change whatsoever with my circles. I also have found that it DOES get into your skin lines. Save your money. The search goes on....

This is undoubtedly the best product on the market for combatting tired, dark looking eyes. Whether those be the result of a late night or, like me, genetics.
Since as long as I can remember, concealing my dark circles has been a challenge. I competitively danced for 18 years and getting my makeup to look as good as the other girls was always just short of performing a miracle. I've used liquid, creams, powders and even the kind shaped like a lipstick. Bare Minerals was the first step, for me, in the right direction against these nasty pore-filling foundations. I used the well-rested powder for several years but found that I had to use 3 or 4 applications to get the coverage I was looking for. Then, earlier this summer, I tried the Well-Rested eye and face brightener. Brighten it did but, unfortunately, did absolutely NOTHING for the dark circles. If you catch the light right, it appears reflective but, from a direct look, the purple eye beasts looked almost worse. I read a review shortly after from a customer who recommended this product, instead, as she had had similar results. Lucky me, I received a sample from my early-fall shopping spree. I was INSTANTLY hooked! I went as far as to pull the cotton off of a cotton swab so I could scrape the inside of the sample bottle. Once I used up the last of the well-rested, I was at the Bare Minerals boutique. We're talking SAME-DAY. I cannot say enough good things about this stuff. It conceals perfectly, it brightens, it's everything I could hope for. I only need one "dip" of the applicator sponge and it covers both eyes. I have light skin with yellow undertones so I use the Fairly Light Original foundation and "Luminous 2" is the perfect color for me. In the bottle and on the back of your hand it will look too dark but its blending qualities are flawless and it doesn't look dark at all. At ALL! That would defeat the purpose.
Seriously, stop reading and start buying. You'll never go back and won't know how you lived without it.
THANKS A MILLION B.E.!
If I could drink this stuff I would. I put it on my lids to cover up my veins (being scottish and all) and under my eyes to cover my severe dark circles. Instant bright eyes! I pair it with the well rested face and eye brightener and the effect is flawless, dewy glow. I never thought my skin would look dewy and now, it does!
It should be called Stroke of Genius
I've tried similar products from several companies and thought they were pretty good, but they aren't in the same class as Stroke of Light. I've never been able to hide my dark circles successfully until I used this and the new concealer. I was not kind to my eyes over the years (e.g., wearing theatrical makeup, inconsistent skin care, rubbing because of allergies, etc.), and now it shows. They claimed that this would improve how my eyes looked. It only took one application to see an astounding difference. It's not often that I'll throw other products away in favor of a new one. In fact, this may have been the first time. I don't what else to say except, "Buy it!"
Dont let your face tell on you
Ever go out for one glass of wine afer work and ops all of a sudden its 1 am and your swinging from a chandellier? Yeah me too. If you have work the next day and your face tells the tale of your late evening this is a great investment. I also use it to cover blemishes. Once at a wedding I cover someones ugly tatoo with it.
I bought this a few weeks ago and I love it! It creates just enought light under the eye to make it look nice but not too much to make it look unnatural. It also works to make your eyeshadow pop!
A mom's dream come true
I have a 2 year old that rarely sleeps through the night and this is the only product that hides my tired eyes (I've tried many). No more dark circles and bags! They disappear with a dab of this and a wave of my brush.
I've always had cirlces under my eyes. They are not horrible, but they are always there. I have tried soooo many products over the years and they either didn't work, made me break out, or looked really unnatural. Well, I have FINALLY found something that works and not a day goes by that I don't use it. It is a huge help on the days that I have to work extra early, and the circles under my eyes are always worse on those days- I am NOT a morning person. This product is light and sheer, blends great with or without make-up on, and looks natural, like I'm not even using anything. I LOVE IT!!
stroke of light
I love this stuff! It brightened my eyes and pretty much covered the dark areas around my eyes. It goes on smooth and it blends in beautifully.
