Stroke of Light Eye Brightener - null
I got this as a sample. I like this as a highlighter but not as any kind of concealer. If you need very light concealing this may work, but not any heavy concealing. Now as a highlighter it works amazing!! It is nice in the corner of the eye, on the brow bone, on the cheekbone. it has a nice luminous look to it. It's sheer and beautiful as a highlight. I would buy this.
Best Under Eye Concealer Ever
I absolutely love this concealer. A few tips, though. I noticed I got the best results after using the cream concealer over my entire face (I don't use the cream concealer under my eyes#. This helps to even out your complexion, and doesn't make you look like you are trying to cover your under eye circles. After applying the cream concealer on your face, then apply the under eye concealer, followed by the foundation #but wait until the concealer dries, or else it will be a mess). Other than that, I love this concealer, and I cannot live without it
Not to be Confused with Concealer
I bought this product to help cover & brighten under eye circles. I am a light complected person, and the Shade 2 was still too light. It looks like a semi-shiny white frost under and around my eyes. It does nothing to conceal the dark circles and still looks like a shiny white frost over the top of other concealers. Maybe it's a great product if you are just looking to highlight your browbones or cheekbones. But don't use it near an undereye circle or any other flaw.
Stayed all day!
I have always had dark under-eye circles. I started using BE a couple of months ago and used the well rested duo. I looked great when I walked out the door but I needed to reapply the concealer powder once or twice throughout the day, so I decided to give this a try. I went ALL DAY (6:15am to 10:00pm) without reapplying anything and I still loved the way my face looked when I got home! I didn't look morning-fresh, but certainly better than I ever have before when I don't reapply. It's amazing what bright eyes does for your entire look. Definitely recommend!
Better than more expensive versions
I have a very pricey brightener, but I like this better. It offers more coverage than the other brand, and I appreciate being able to see how much product is in the tube. It brightens and does not crease or settle into my fine lines. A winner!
I have used Bare Minerals off and on throughout the years and have been waiting for them to come out with a liquid concealer. Quite frankly, I have not liked the loose powder for touch up applications. I have really bad dark circles and have always been searching for that perfect cover up. I think I have found it!!! I also use this for other imperfections and works well for areas other than the eye. AWESOME!
although i would normally go for the lightest shade of anything i felt the no 2 colour more suited skin tone and i was right ! the colour worked well with my skin and blended in very easily it didn't feel like it was just settled on my skin, i found it worked better for redness of the skin rather than dark circles
Yet another AMAZING product from BE!!
As per usual, BE has it out of the park with Stroke of Light! It does an amazing job of covering up dark circles, and doesn't settle into any lines you may have. And I have tip - I use it right over the smile lines that run from my nose to the corners of my mouth. By putting Stroke of Light there and patting it in with my ring fingers, it smooths out my face and takes about 10 years off!!
THIS STUFF IS AWSOME !!! HOPE IT NEVER GOES OFF SHELF!!!! HIGHLIGHTED MY EYE HELPS HIDE DARK CIRCLES AS WELL
Really does cover the dark
I love this product...I have dark circles under my eyes and I'm able to hide them well with this product. I'm very happy with this purchase.
Great under eye circle concealer!
I am so pleased with this product! From the first time when I used the wand and my finger to blend to now using the concealer brush it has worked wonderfully.
I also want to thank you for adding the video above to the product pictures. It helps so much! Because of the video I'm not spending time in front of my mirror wondering if I'm applying it correctly.
The Stroke of Light Eye Brightener is perfect for hiding under eye circles with out a lot of steps. I use it every day and definitely am going to get one for my purse for touch ups during the day.
Perfect Solution for Dark Circles!
I have SEVERE under-eye dark circles. They run in my family & I've had them since I was young. Plus, I'm prone to insomnia, so that doesn't exactly help. I had tried EVERYTHING to decrease their appearance. I was using the bareVitamins Eye Rev-er Upper, concealer, foundation, & Well Rested Powder, & they still weren't completely gone. Now, after adding the Stroke of Light after my bareVitamins Eye Rev-er Upper, they are 100% gone. I look younger & more rested. I use it all under & in the inner corner of my eyes before I do my makeup routine & it looks amazing. It also works miraculously as a heavy-duty concealer for blemishes that are incredibly red. I apply my Prime Time, allow it to dry, then apply a tiny dot to an incredibly red blemish & it disappears after foundation. A wonderful second usage.
Stroke of Light Eye Brightener
Loved this product. It did not settle into my fine lines and it last all day. Great stuff.
Stroke of Light
I am pretty happy with this stroke of light eye brightener. It does make my eye area brighter, and helps to hide dark circles (although it is not really a concealer). The reason I am only giving this 4 stars instead of 5, because there are tiny sparkles in it, and when the sun hits it correctly it is really noticeable, so I will only use it sparingly around my eyes- I was really hoping I could use it on the occasional breakout, but not with sparkles in it. Overall, I like it enough to buy again.
Stroke of light is a GREAT product
I can not stress this porduct enough, I had went to a BE boutique about a week ago and was looking at this particular brightener and was curious and spoke to a salesclerk about it. She had told me that it would remove the appearance of puffy eyes and tiredness in the eye. I was a little unsure about it at fist, but when she applied it I saw the immediate difference on the eye area. After purchasing it I have experimented and saw that you can use it every where on your face if you are looking into contouring the shape of your face as well. Like I said love this Product, I am very glad that BE has expanded its line. Try it you won't regret it!!
Buying it next time
I got a free sample of this and I love it! My under eyes are always dark and I hate it. I can never use enough cover up, but just a little bisque, my bare minerals foundation and then stroke of light and my eyes are AMAZING!
Shine your light
This product is genius. I do not have extreme dark circles, but as I am getting closer to 40, I have noticed the texture & color underneath my eyes drastically changed. I put a dollop of the Luminous 1 on my hand & use the Light Stroke brush to apply. I do blend with my finger a bit. Once it has dried, I cover it with either bisque or well rested. You want to not put on too much, otherwise it can look cake. Also, a small amount on the inner corner of the eye will do you wonders.
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!
