Well-Rested Face and Eye Brightener
Great pick me up -
This works really well at just adding a bit of light to either dark circles or puffy eyes so they are not as noticeable. It is not a concealer so it wont hide anything - but if you are in a rush and have no time for the full make-up effect - it's rather clear in color - almost nude but adds just enough highlight to brighten under eye or in the corner of the lid to make those little flaws less noticeable. I sometimes do not have time for make up - but this under my eyes is just enough to make the unflattering puffy or dark circles less noticeable.
I don't get it, this product does nothing except make your skin moist. No coverage, no brightening effect.
I agree with just about all of the other reviews -- the dispenser could use some work (or just eliminate the brush tip; you need your finger to pat it dry and even anyway). The amount is far too little for for cost -- $22 for 0.1ml? Ok... I'd deal with the cost if it was a great product, but I haven't found it to be. If I use it for under-eye brightening, adding concealer on top dulls the effect and creates a dry, flaky look, so the finish is definitely not smooth or even, and the "bright eyes" look is pretty much where it would be with only concealer. I've used it as a highlighter for other areas like brow bone or cheekbone, but beware the light you plan to be under. In front of my lighted cosmetic mirror, it looked subtle and even, but in daylight it was just too obvious where the product was on my face. I love this company, but the price and claim of this product are not right.
Terrible Packaging Design
I really wanted to love this product...if only I could get the packaging open. When using this product, I have to remember to open it before I put any lotion on in the morning. So if I happen to forget this, then forget about getting it open, my hands slide right off the tube. I definitely won't be buying this again and will be buying a different cover up in the future, probably one with a twist off lid.
I got this with a set I received as a Christmas gift. I had run out of my Bisque concealer, so I tried it out. Not impressed! It did not cover anything! It took forever to get the stuff out onto the brush too. All this did was make my face sticky . It would not dry, so I couldn't apply the rest of my makeup without having a patch under my eves from this stuff. I honestly can't believe there are people who love it. I threw it in the trash! I'm very glad I didn't waste my own money on this stuff! If you want to really cover your dark circles and blemishes, get the concealer powder. It's probably my favorite Bare Minerals product.
Touch Of Light
Adds the perfect highlight to your cheeks,nose above the brow. One of my favorite products and a must have!
Not a fan
I wanted to my hand at illuminating/eye brightening but this item is not doing the trick. I don't have dark circles luckily but this product would not conceal them if I did. It takes forever to get the product started and then it doesn't last long. I generally didn't even like the look of it afterward - I think it enhanced under eye lines and my dry skin. Luckily this came as a freebie b/c I would have returned this if I actually paid for it.
I love this product! I have dark circles and this just takes the edge off, without looking cakey or thick. I put it over my tinted moisturizer (just around the eye area) and then dust with some mineral veil or bare minerals foundation. It doesn't look like I am wearing makeup. Do not overuse and you will love this product. It lasts me a couple months, as I only use it around my eyes, or anywhere I need a little brightening! I did not find that it made wrinkles more pronounced as mentioned in another review. In fact, I have VERY dry skin and this is the only product that does not make my eye area look dry! I never want to run out of my Well Rested Face and Eye Brightener... A lower price would be wonderful!
Simple and Beautiful!
While unwrapping this I thought to myself, "Oh My! I just know I am going to make a mess and make huge bright circles around my eyes!". How wrong was I!!! This blends and brightens you right up and it's so simple for the difference this product makes for your eyes I am super happy and excited! My only issue is the price... I just wish it was priced a little more reasonable. I am giving this a 8 on the hearts rating due to price, not the product itself. :o)
I loved this product but it broke on me the first day. :(
I was hoping that this would be a quick fix to under eye circles. Unfortunately, it didn't cover nearly as well as the Bisque powder concealer. This product also dried into creases in the little lines under my eyes and made them look more pronounced. Not my favorite.
Love the product not the packaging!!!
This is one of the best products ever. I've purchased it many times and love it. However it is quite expensive considering it doesn't last very long. It does all the things it's advertised it will do! Dark circles, fine lines, you just don't see them as much. But the average mother, home maker, or even professional (such as myself, I'm a teacher and dedicated bare essentials wearer) can't afford to purchase this every two weeks. :/ please consider repackaging it with more bang for your buck. Otherwise, I absolutely love, love, love all of the priducts I've purchased throughout the last 15 years. Thank you so much!!!
Totally obsessed. I was shocked to see negetive reviews. I have olive skin and kicks circles when I'm tired. I would say I get the best result using this product after my foundation and before mineral veil. Since using the pen people are constantly complimenting the dewy,healthy finish to my skin.
I just bought this yesterday and tried it for the first time this morning. My dark circles - GONE! I was so impressed with this product. Because its a sheer pen its so easy to use too - easier than a concealer in my opinion. Just dabbed some underneath both eyes, set it with my finishing power and I was out the door. I generally dislike concealers because they feel heavy so I'm so so so excited and happy I found this product! Thanks again BE!
Great quality poor quantity
This product works great, but I will not buy it again until I get more product with each purchase. I am very conservative with my makeup and I was disappointed in how quickly it went, not even using it every day.
AMAZING & disappointing
LOVE THIS STUFF!! Works like a charm. VERY disappointed in the amount you get for the money!!! Barely lasts two weeks. Wish it came in a bigger size.
Couldn't Live Without It!
I love, love, love this! I use this everyday before applying my eyeshadow and it hides the dark circles under my eyes so well. I thought it was a concealer but it is translucent and now I don't have to use concealer under my eyes. It brightens up my whole face and last all day. I use just a small amount each day, 2 clicks per eye is perfect. The only complaint I do have is that the lid is extremely hard to get off. So, I just lightly put it on and don't close it all the way. I am not sure if this is a problem with all of them or just this one in particular. I have ordered an extra just to have on hand when I run out, but with such a small amount needed, I think it will last a long time. I have used it over 4 months and have not used even a quarter of it. I love the BM products I have tried but I think this is my absolute favorite.
Just one click, wipe on hand, use concealer brush to swipe/pat the liquid under the eye, then use the heavenly brush to blend into the skin. I also use my fingers at the end to press the liquid in just to be sure. I love this product. It's too bad there isn't much product in the marker style package. It doesn't crease at the end of the day like concealer. Ditch the concealer under your eyes. Say hello to this 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!
