Stroke of Light Eye Brightener - null
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.
