Well-Rested Face and Eye Brightener
Well Rested Face and Eye Brightener
This product really works amazing! I had to use it two or three times before I realized how amazing the product is. I have very dark circles inside my eyes, a dull complexion, and some red blotchiness around the eyes. I put this stuff on and it brightens my eye area up immediatly. Sometimes I do have to use a little concealer to cover really dark circles or redness, but this stuff works great.
Wakes me up!
I love this brightener. Below my eyes my skin looks a little purple and I have slight bags. This brightens my under eyes and I look more awake and fresher. The only thing for me is that my skin is very sensitive and this gave me bumps on my upper eyelid and in the outer corner of my eyes. It also made that area very itchy. I can only use this under my eyes as it's a skin irritant in those other areas. I really wish I could use it all around my eye -- and I highly recommend this if you do not have sensitive skin. It gives your skin such a nice sheen. I would definitely give this 5 stars if I wasn't sensitive to it!
Miracle in a wand!!
I have an elderly dog and she keeps me up at night sometimes. (please no comments on this subject) I had been up with her one pariticular night for many hours and had to face a group of people for a presentation the next day. I applied the Well Rested Eye and Face Brightener around my entire eye area and then applied my make up. You would not believe the compliments that I had recieved of hoe lovely and rested I looked. This is now a MUST in my make-up arsenal!!!
Nice and bright!
Well hello there you amazing product.
I am so pleased with Well-Rested Face and Eye Brightener. I am a flight attendant and am always looking for great products to help me look fresh and fabulous when I'm feeling not so fresh and fabulous. This does it. I've found that other brightening products I've tried looked caked on around my eye area. But this products is a light formula that brightens and doesn't settle into any creases or wrinkles around the eye area, which I love!
I usually apply this around my eyes after I apply my foundation. I apply one swipe under my eye and up towards my brow and then blend it in by patting my eye area (just how you would apply eye cream). Then I apply my mineral veil and am ready to go.
I really love this product. It is easy to use, light, subtle and you can take it anywhere.
I recently tried the Stroke of Light concealer by itself and was satisfied, but not dependent on it. Then, the gods sent Ashely from the Polaris store to tell me about the new Well Rested pen. I had tried the mineral Well Rested when it first came out, but it didn't conceal my dark circles at all, so I gave up on it. Ashley told me to alternate three dots of Stroke of Light with two dots of Well Rested and pat to blend. The difference is like nothing I've seen--bright, lively, practically irridescent. Either alone may not do it for you, but together, there is no way they can disappoint.
The control and dispensing needs improving. It takes a while for the product to work it's way up the bristles. So waiting is a draw back. Also, it's hard to determine how much you'll get. Either too little or too much once it starts to flow. But once the Well-Rested Face and Eye Brightener is out, it's great! Love the way the light reflects off it and give a bright dewy look to the eyes, nose, lip & cheek area.
This doesn't compare to the original Well Rested!
The product irritates my eyes which have been watering all day from it even though I tried eye drops to stop it. Also turning the pen bottom either produces none to too much of the product which is very gooey. The coverage is also nonexistent and extremely shiny. I prefer a matte finish as I have very oily skin. Up until now I have loved all of the BE products I have bought over the years, since 2005, and used with great success. This one is an exception.
You have to give it a chance!
When I first bought this product I was super excited -- the content was more than the other eye concealer (which is mainly why I bought it) -- but was super irritated at first when I tried to use it and nothing was coming out of the brush! But you have to give it a chance to work itself up the "tube" or container, and then it only takes 2 or 3 clicks for the product to come out. I LOVE the way its super light and thin -- not thick and unnaturally layered the way some concealers look under the eyes. I wake up at 5am every morning for work, and if it can get rid of the bags under MY eyes, then it can definitely work for you! Although I think buying the right shade is super important with this product, so be aware!
Well rested works for me!
I purchased this product based on a suggest from a BE Boutique employee. I have slight dark circles and little bags below my eyes that no amount of sleep seems to cure completely. I can't compare it to the original powder, since I never used it, but this product is wonderful. It doesn't get full coverage, but it gets enough coverage for me to look much more natural and rested. The the twist up/brush applicator makes it very easy to apply then blend out with my finger. Thanks BE!
Not doing what they said it would
I wanted to like this product...but as it was said, does more brightening than covering. Also seems to accentuate wrinkles rather than decreasing the look. I'm disappointed but will play around a little longer. If I change my mind I''ll be back to update!
