Stroke of Light Eye Brightener - null
Cover well but
I bought the luminous 1, and it covers my under eye well! Doesn't crease... But!! It has sparkles!!! I want it to look "natural" or as natural as can be, and now I have sparkles all over my face.... I've only used it once so I'm hoping it won't bother me too much over time....
Great highlight product
This is really a great product for anyone who is learning how to conture and highlight or has already mastered the art of it! I do want to caution people that if you are using Luminous 2 that is a bad idea! Luminous 2 is yellow tone and yellows usually bring out the blue tones. So if you are putting it under your eyes it will most likely bring out the circle under your eyes versus concealing them. I suggest you use Luminous 1- it might look a bit off but trust me when i say it will blend a lot better and will cover up those dark circles better.
A must have in your make-up bag!!
I just love the fact that I can look awake and bright eyed after I put this brightener on!!
Quit reading this and go buy it!!
Seriously, this product is amazing. I am only in my early twenties, but I do get some darkness under my eyes (especially when stressed or sleeping less). I normally would just swipe some sheer lightening shadow under my eyes, and that worked somewhat. When I got this brightener with my bare minerals starter kit, I decided to try it out. I was blown away by how much brighter and bigger my eyes looked, immediately and over the course of the day (it seemed to continuously brighten). I did not have any issues with caking (even after twelve hours in the Arizona heat!) and would recommend this to anyone struggling with darkness around the eye area.
Even if I don't wear any other makeup, I will always wear this. It camouflages dark circles, brightens and instantly makes me look better rested! It resists settling into fine lines, and doesn't irritate my skin. Fantastic product!
Can't live without!
This product is amazing! I always would joke about my "racoon eyes" because I have hereditary dark circles & undereye puffiness, regardless of how much sleep I get. This product makes them virtually disappear, and I've noticed an improvement in the look of the skin surrounding my eyes on the days I go sans-makeup. I wear the medium tan original foundation, so I went with Luminous 3 and it works like a dream.
This is the specific order I do things in (only because this is how the make-up artist at the counter told me to LOL):
1) Prime Time Foundation Primer
2) Original Foundation
3) Pure Radiance
4) Eyeshadow and/or Eyeliner
5) Stroke of Light Eye Brightener
6) Mineral Veil
I haven't had one pimple since I started using Bare Minerals, but I don't imagine this product would work well to cover it up. Otherwise, AMAZING product and I cannot live without it :)
The Best BE Product - Hands Down!!
I love the Stroke of Light Eye Brightener by BE. I ordered it in Luminous 1 and it is my go-to makeup item. I carry it with me all the time- every purse, every day, every vacation. It is by no means a concealer (nor does it pretend to be), however it adds just the right hint of shimmer and color coverage that truly enhances and highlights the corner of the eyes. Can wear to work or a night out without it seeming as "too much". As a fair skin girl, I was debating between Luminous 1 and 2, but found that the lighter option made me appear less tired and as an added benefit, actually helps my eyeliner stay in place.
I am kind of pale with a slight tan still hanging on from last summer. I got this product because I needed a solution for the dark circles I always have underneath my eyes. I got it at the store today and had to try it out. I LOVE THIS PRODUCT!! I used it under my foundation and applied it with the wand then smoothed it out with my finger. Once my foundation was applied, the dark circles were gone and my eyes looked wide and awake. This product will now be a constant part of my makeup routine.
Perfect under eyes
I bought this on the advice of a consultant in the BE boutique. I have used the powder concealer (good for blemishes, but settles into fine lines around the eyes). I have used the other cream concealer (in the pot) but that is far too heavy for the delicate skin around the eyes--also works well for blemishes, though.
This one is finally what I am looking for when I've been up late with the kids and I want to look awake! I apply primer first, then a smidge of this concealer under my eyes and dab with my ring finger to blend. It is so smooth, light, and creamy it goes on well. I follow with my BE foundation and they look seamless around my eyes. Some mineral veil and I'm all set.
This is a great product. Plus, I use such a small amount each time, I think this will last a long time.
helps with tired eyes and makes eyes look younger!
I have struggled with hereditary dark circles all my life. I have tried so many concealers. Some have done a great job covering....but it still looks like I am wearing concealer. I finally found a concealer combo that works so well for me. After I prime my skin, I apply stroke of light (Lum 1) all around my eyes and then use my originaly bisque concealer to set it. Perfect!! And it lasts all day : ) I also apply stroke of light anywhere on my face where I want to "add some light" It blends so well. I typically skip my BE foundation. Stroke of Light and bisque is all I need. Thanks BE!!
I actually use this in harmony with my concealer, I have tried it a few other ways but I found this is what works best for me. Or I use it on days when I don't do a full face in place of my concealer, so I don't look like a zombie. Make no mistake, this is not meant to take place of a concealer, but to add a little oomph. While I love the texture and creaminess of this product, and the fact that it is not glittery, I do wish this was a more "brightening". Other than that, no complaints!
big fan -- well worth it!
I bought this product a couple of weeks ago because it was suggested to me when I stopped by my local boutique to buy more foundation. I am so happy the woman told me about it. It has become part of my every day routine. Sometimes even on light makeup days, I'll just use my BB cream, mineral veil, then brighten my eye area with it. Add mascara, a little swirl of blush and lip balm then I'm out the door and look naturally flawless. On days when I really need it, it works fantastic over a light application of my 'wide awake' concealer powder. I don't know how I managed before b.M. I'm a happy customer.
I first got this as a deluxe sample with purchase in Luminous 1 (Which happens to be perfect for my very pale complexion) and have been hooked ever since the first time I used it. It's a bit unconventional, but I actually use this as a concealer under my eyes on mornings when I do not have time to put on a full face of make-up and have circles. I also use it on my eyelids to even out my skin tone. I never put anything else over or under it and it looks great all day. I can put this on my eyes and fix my too-little sleep look in about 1 minute.
THE KEY TO DAZZLING EYES AND LIPS!!!
THIS IS A GREAT PRODUCT! I AM A MAKEUP ARTIST AND I DAB IT UNDER THE EYES, THE CORNER OF THE EYES AND IN THE CUPID BOW OF THE LIPS TO LIGHT UP THE FACE. THERE IS A HUGE DIFFERENCE IN THE BEFORE AND AFTER EFFECTS! ESPECIALLY IN THE MORNING WHEN YOU JUST WAKE UP ! A LITTLE BIT OF PRODUCT GOES A LONG WAY!
I purchased this concealer/brightener this afternoon. I had the lady put it underneath my eyes in the store before I bought it. I was amazed at how well it covered up my dark circles underneath my eyes. I love the concealer/brightener duo. I think this is a great product and it will definitely become a staple in my make up routine!
Love it!! I can see the difference
Amazing! A++ on this one bareMinerals! I apply to inner eye, a little under eye, and dap above outer eyebrow. I see immediate results. Brightens up my eyes in an instant. Very creamy. A little goes a long way! Just dab it on. Wonderful product!
Perfects the eye area
I bought lighter than the makeup I use. I apply to the inner parts of my eye's follow with mineral veil, I use the original, and get the most amazing results! My tired eye's suddenly look alive again. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, this product!
NOTE: I used a darker shade and did not get the same great results as when I bought lighter than my makeup shade.
I've tried many products for my dark circles. I received this product as a free sample. I was shocked when it worked! for the first time I finally found a product that does what it says. I am buying this asap!
Easy to use
This eye brightener is simple, creamy and easy to use. It goes on smooth and I rub it in with a finger. My only qualm is that I wish I would have gotten the correcting concealer instead. That being said, I use the product every day under my eyes and for touch up spots and its great.
I love this product!
I got a free sample of Stroke of Light when I purchased Bare Minerals at Ulta. It is, by far, the best concealer/brightener I've ever used. I have fair skin and dark circles under my eyes, as well as veins now appearing on my eyelids. This product reduces the appearance of the dark circles (and any other reddish discolorations you many have) without looking "cakey" or fake. If you use just a small amount, it will not settle in the creases of delicate under eye tissue (and make you look older). It dries quickly so I can continue applying the rest of my Bare Minerals makeup. I like the #2 color because of the distinct yellow base which works so well to counteract redness. Works great to prime my eyelids for shadow, too. I'm a believer.
Great Liquid Eye Brightener
I feel like this is a great product to cover dark circles! To apply, I generally place 4 dots under the eye and blend them with my finger. This lasts most of the day and brightens my eye area quite a bit.
Nice creamy eye brightener
I'm not sure if I would call this a concealer it doesn't conceal dark circles but it's amazing as a eye brightener! I will apply this in my inner corner and below on top of concealer for a wonderful brightening effect!
Blendable easy coverage!
I got a sample of this concealer and was so happy that it was the right shade! I received shade 2 and it works perfectly with my fair/light skin. I am a fan of the doe foot applicator for concealer. Just a dab under each eye, blend and you are good! I found it easy to blend in and you only needed a little to cover the area. I gave it 4 stars because I wish it had just a touch more coverage. If you layer your foundation on top though it works well. My favorite part is how natural this looks! I don't find any creasing throughout the day and it always looks fresh and nice! Great product!
Wanted to love it
Love the feel of this product but, it creases on me, so, I switched to the broad spectrum concealer which I feel blends better with the loose powder foundation. Definitely brightens eyes though but, if you smile a lot like me, it's probably best to stick with the powder.
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!
