Well-Rested Face and Eye Brightener
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.
I think the Well-Rested pen is a great product, because it does brighten your undereye area. What I do is use the Well-Rested pen and my BareMinerals concealer afterwards, it really helps with the covering and to look more awake. The product pretty much does its work! It's not a concealer on its own though, not like the powder.. I've seen people comment that they wish it gave more coverage. For extra coverage, I would probably go for the Stroke of Light.
Wish it covered my dark under eye area more but I like it!
Well Rested- Love What's Inside BUT
Bought this new product and it works well but the container it is in broke after a few turns and I am unable to get the use out of the actual product. Just change the packaging to a tube ...
I had received a full size sample from sephora a few weeks ago! And hadn't used it till one day! Now I'm all about going over the top on making the unders of my eyes bright! So when I first tried this gem I was besides my self! It cuts so much time out and gives me that desired brightness I love and need! I would tell everyone that this is a must in there make-up bag! Another home run on this one
I have bought this alone and in a collection and will continue to buy! It works and always makes my eyes look rested and fresh!
Sample that I'll buy again & again!
I received a sample of Well Rested Face & Eye Brightener in a Sephora bonus. I was skeptical, but was incredibly surprised at how well it works. It's so easy to use, and is perfect for highlighting right under my brows, the inside and outside corners of my eyes. I love the pen format. I don't tend to have under eye circles, so I can't speak for how well it handles that issue. It's not sparkly, or shiny, just a nice highlight. If I use it in the morning, adding a tad more at the end of the day is a nice refresher. Once the sample's gone, I'll definitely be buying more!
Gives a beautiful highlighted eye look. I do prefer the loose well rested to the pen, however, the liquid well rested does have an ever-so-slight of a natural shimmer to it that makes the brightening so beautiful.
This is nothing like the original powder Well Rested. The powder was great at hiding little dark spots and as an all-over light concealer. I don't have big dark circles, but the powder form was always great for actually brightening my eyes. This makes them look saggy somehow. This product is watery, runny, and shiny...and does nothing for my skin. The applicator is hard to open and provides very uneven coverage. DO NOT BUY THIS IF YOU'RE LOOKING FOR A REPLACEMENT FOR THE POWDER WELL-RESTED. I am thinking I will go back to using a different brand. This is not for me. I expect more from Bare Minerals.
I received this yesterday with the expectation that it would be of similar consistency/coverage to the powder form. I have tried to use it multiple times and am just flat out disappointed. It is nothing like the original; it doesn't provide hardly any coverage. It literally only adds a little moisture and shimmer to your under-eyes, which creates a reflection of light...making your eyes appear brightened. The powder form actually does the job....so please bring it back!
