Well-Rested Face and Eye Brightener
Love this brightener
I do love this brightener for use under my eyes. However, when I first opened it I had to twist it more like twenty times to get the product to come out. I also feel that the brush is too stiff to use to apply the product under my eyes, so I have to dispense it on my finger and then pat it under my eye. I would like it better with a sponge applicator or in a squeeze-tip bottle.
Love product but doesn't last long.
I love this product, but you can't highlight those special areas on your face everyday. The product only last 2 weeks and it's too expensive to buy one every two weeks. Wish it had more in that big pen. Pen size is deceiving. It will have you thinking there is more in it than it really is.
Needs more work on the dispensing
I got the Well Rested Face and Eye Brightener on the advice of a consultant at my local BE botique. It took me a while to get the product to dispense properly and I never knew for sure how much was going to come out and especially if the tube was truely empty. It apparently has finished dispensing after only a week or two of use. Definitely not a value for my money! This is the only BE product I have ever felt unhappy enough about to write a negative review. I hope they will reconsider the packaging, the product is good, but not worth it in this form.
Just what I wanted
This stuff is great!! It's not a concealer ladies. So if you're wanting to cover really dark circles pick something else. This is just to brighten up that under eye area or other areas you want highlighted. It just gives you that little bit extra glow that is subtle but amazing!! Also it's so light so it doesn't sink into your fine lines. You will love this, it does exactly what it says it will do.
The consultant at my Bare Minerals store recommended the liquid over the powder version of this product, so I went with this one. Truly a great product...I apply it under my eyes, right under my browbone and anywhere else I need a little magic. There is no shimmer or glitter so it looks very natural. It is most definitely not a concealer...this is the last thing I put on before walking out the door. 4 stars because the cap is a nuisance. If I push it down all the way I have a VERY difficult time getting it off. Leaving it slightly uncapped but still securely on has been a better option for me.
I am the queen of dark circles...
I'll admit, I was very skeptical. I have genetic very dark under-eye circles (thanks, mom!) that make me look like I never get any sleep...which, (who am I kidding?) is partially true. I had tried other dark circle cover-ups in the past with only minimal results.
First off, this product is easy to put on and FAST acting. It only took about a minute, or two, to see a HUGE difference. I was amazed at how natural my eyes looked - and the best part was that my dark circles were practically gone!
I am soooo glad I found this product! Once again, bareMinerals, you have wowed me. Thank you, thank you, thank you! I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for an under-eye dark circle fix that really does work - no gimmicks.
Skeptical at first but surprised!
When I was first shown this product, I was a little skeptical at first. When I first tried it, I thought it didn't work. Now I've used it everyday and it works wonders around the eyes. Having light skin my eyes look dark. I always used to use concealer to cover my eyes. Now I no longer need to use that much concealer. This product brightens up my eyes so naturally it looks amazing!!!! Thank you so much for this !!!!!
Goodbye Sleepy Eyes!
This product works really well for me! I have fair skin so dark eyes make me look deathly, and this helps boost the concealer I put over top of it!
Not a concealer!!
This product is NOT a concealer, and it makes no claims to be. It's a brightener. Watch the video if you're unsure how to use this, or read other reviews, the gals give pretty good instructions.
This is part of my daily routine. I use this, concealer, the well rested powder, stroke of light, and the brightening eye primer. Why do I do this? Because it WORKS! I have terrible dark circles. I'm a grad student, I'm up late studying and up early to work out before class and work. Yet I look great every day.
This brightener does exactly what it says it does, for my eyes and for my face (I do use it on occasion above my upper lip). What miracles, get the whole team and enjoy the results.
And as for how long it lasts. Don't over use it and it will last months, remember, it's a brightener, not a concealer. I've noticed that those of my friends and family who go through this a lot tend to try and use it as concealer, so they use a ton of product compared to what I use.
Well-Rested Face and Eye Brightener
I wasn't sure if I was going to like this product; it's not a concealer, it is just a brightener. However, I have learned to love it! It especially helps me on the days where I am extra tired and my eyes need a little perking up. I usually usually put it on after my concealer for a little more brightening up. Overall a great product if you're looking for something to brighten your complexion.
Remember, it's not a concealer; it's a brightener! If you're looking for a concealer, try the Correcting Concealer or the Bisque powder concealer.
Tip: After getting some product on the applicator, tap it onto your eye, brow bone, etc. and then pat/roll the product till it is absorbed.
Brightens Eyes & Minimizes Dark Circles/Blemishes
This product is great for brightening under eyes and minimizing dark circles/puffiness. I would not say that it gets rid of dark circles completely, but minimizes them so that it's not noticeable.
The one thing I don't like is the applicator. When first receiving the product, you do have to click it about 3-5 times in order for the product to "start flowing". What I like to do to conserve is brush the areas I need with the applicator and then blend in using my fingers. It is easier to even out, rather than using the applicator brush. I also use it to cover up/minimize blemishes as well.
I'm really enjoying this brightener. I'm confused as to why people think it's a concealer - it's not, nor does the description claim to be. I use this brightener along with my Well Rested Concealer and the results are subtly beautiful. I use the concealer for my dark circles, and dot the brightener along the tops of my cheekbones and slightly over the dark circles. Like I said, the effect is subtle - nothing earth shattering, but combining this with other concealers does brighten the look around my eyes (not just under them).
I agree the applicator could be changed to be more useful - I blend it with my finger instead. I recommend for those looking for a highlighter without all the shimmer!
Dont waste your money on this. The product is decent but the packaging ruins it. Ive owned it for months and it's still a hassle every morning. You never get out the right amount and it take forever to get it out.
Brightens it up!
This product is great at brightening it up under the eyes, as specified. It is light weight and easy to put on.
The applicator is not exactly my ideal. I would rather it be like the stroke of brightness. For this one, I click it out and put it on my finger to apply.
It goes on weightlessly, and can layer on concealer easily. It does need to be layered if youre looking to conceal, because while it brightens, it really doesn't conceal that well.
Cover your dark circles - ALL DAY!
Perfect for DARK circles. This is NOT a concealer. At the BM store they showed me how to use it properly. I have SEVERE dark circles and have spent thousands trying to cover them. This WORKS like a CHARM. 1. Apply BM moisturizing eye creme 2. Apply a small amount of Well Rested about 3 clicks, 3. With a fluffy brush load it with your fav BM mineral foundation and tap over under eye 4. Repeat with brush and mineral veil. LASTS 12 hrs, no creasing, no fading, no settling in lines, no reverse raccoon. What are you waiting for? Click add to bag now!
pass on this
I tried it but it was a hassle to use with the bruch applicator. The one I purchased only had 3 uses. What a disappointment.
I am disappointed by so many reviews bashing this product because it doesn't conceal. This product never claimed to conceal like the powder, only brighten. And it does exactly that. When I first was turned on to BE, I went to a boutique and the girl that worked with me used this on my eyes first, and then the Well Rested concealer powder. The two together, in her words, "look bomb!" For someone with dark circles like me, you cannot rely on this product solely, but it is great for highlighting.
In terms of the dispenser, I don't really like the brush - its easiest for me to wipe the product on my finger and use it that way instead of using the brush. The first time you use it you will have to click it a lot #and I do mean a lot# for the product to start coming up, but then for each use after that, I use about 3 clicks to cover both eyes. I can't totally speak for how long this lasts, but I've been using it so far every day for 3 months and it isn't showing signs of running out yet, so I think it is definitely worth the cost.
Frustrating delivery system
I love the product itself, but the delivery system is a hassle to use. I can twist the dial for a minute or so before product comes out. The price does not justify the amount of product that is ultimately delivered. The product prevents creasing of eyeshadow, which is awesome. Unfortunately, I will have to go back to the powder form.
Not worth it
I got this as part of a set and was disappointed with it. It lasted for a very short time compared to all my other BareMinerals products (maybe a month, if that). You can't actually apply it with the brush- you have to rub it in with your finger, and it didn't really seem to make much of a difference once applied.
amazing ...pros and cons
pros love the coverage, i bought it in a small combo with brightener, eye primer, and mineral veil, if used in that order it provides perfect brightening for under eyes and eyelids..its more of a highlighter for tired eyes than a concealer, best eye highlighter I've used in 25 yrs!!
cons, the applicator has issues, i thought it was a bad one until i read the reviews i wondered if i had left the lid unsecured and it dried out so the next time i used it i turned the dial more still nothing then next time i opened it gushes of wasted product? just wait it will come out onto the brush eventually i guess??
Well rested face and eye brightener
Difficult to smooth out...container doesn't distribute easily. Not nearly as efficient as original powder form...will go back to that.
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.
