Well-Rested Face and Eye Brightener is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 90.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Product I am 69 years old and have darkness under the eyes. I use this to brighten that area. It works great. I like that after applying mineral veil the darkness is gone without a caked on look. I do have trouble getting the top off sometimes. I have arthritis in my fingers and even using a towel to hold the lid it is hard for me to get off some mornings. It would be good to have a "ridge" or something on the lid to help grip.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I really like this product At first I didn't understand this product and wasn't sure how I felt about it. After trial and error, I found I really like it. I generally use it for brightening up under-eye dark circles; I also have very sensitive, dry skin. 1) I primarily use this product before my under-eye concealer (stroke of light eye brightener). I use the brush to spread it about, and then pat it down with my finger, following up w/ the brightener. 2) It's great for days that you don't want to wear make-up but might want just a little cover-up; this product helps to brighten as well as moisturize the dark circles and dry skin under my eyes (it definitely however, does not replace an actual moisturizer).

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not the same as it used to be I've ordered this product before when it was applied with a foam wand, and it worked great. I ordered it again and now the package is smaller and it is applied by clicking the end and applying with the built in brush. I had to click the end, what seemed like 50 times, to start the flow and the makeup still barely trickles out. I've only used it a couple times and feel like it's already empty. Like the makeup itself but HATE the new product design. I will not be ordering again!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Love and hate this product This product does a great job at highlighting! Only downside of this product is you can not have dry skin especially under the eyes other wise it looks terrible. I use mine primarily on my face and it does a wonderful job!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love looking less tired At 62 yrs of age with the heart and soul of a 25 yr old, I do my best to always try and look how I feel without being garish or too inappropriate for my age. Not that I care what other people think, but looking ridiculous is not my goal. This brightner makes me feel like I do inside without making me look like something I am not. For the customers who gave bad reviews, they just need to read the product description, this is NOT a concealer, but a brightner, 2 totally different products with 2 different goals. For others, trust the company 2 listen 2 your concerns & provide the help you need. I just love the fact that this product makes my skin look fresh & invigorated, Just the way I feel inside!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Product, can't live without it I absolutely love this eye brightener, I put it under my eyes, above my eyes, around my lips, and even the top of my nose. It is truly amazing, it brightens and illuminates. Please don't ever discontinue my favorite Bare Escentuals product, although I do enjoy most all your products. Thank you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Product for Brightening Under-eye Circles I don't know a lot about makeup; however, this is really easy to apply and brightens my under-eye dark circles. I can't comment on how long it lasts with everyday use, since I usually only do powder foundation and mineral veil daily. I would give it a try!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reading other reviews before buying. I have a feeling some of the not so good reviews could be due to dry skin. Make sure you moisturize adequately for your skin type, after cleaning your face. If there isn't enough moisturizer then the products you put on afterwards get soaked up by your thirsty pores. If this happens, the skin care and makeup next in line won't be able to do what is expected. There is a money back guarantee, send or take it back, while inquiring what else to try to help you with brightening your face. The Cosmetic team online and in the stores have done a wonderful job helping me in any area I ask about. Reviews, good or bad are welcomed by any company worthy of their product, trust and commitment to their customer. After reading all reviews, the company will strive to make customers happy about the products they invest in. Change doesn't please everyone, but it happens every day in many ways. We learn to cope and figure out which of the new works for us. Ask for help, they're there for you!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Nope... I LOVE the well rested cc eye primer stick and hoped I'd like this as much since I can't get the stick anymore. Unfortunately this isn't even in the same city let alone the same ball park. It's sticky where as the stick was smooth, creamy and blended beautifully. The color is too light where the stick was just right for brightness without that "someone doesn't know how to blend" look. All in all, I won't be buying this product again as this "new" formulation doesn't work for me. PLEASE bring back the stick!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well-Rested Eye Brightener Being a "senior citizen" I bought this to brighten the inner corners and under my eyes. I know it's not a concealer, but I use it over my concealer to help with the dark circles. I love how it brings out my eyes in the inner corners, so I do look "well-rested." Some reviewers found it to be sticky, but I did not find this at all. You have to use it sparingly, otherwise, I guess that is what would make it sticky. To me, the only downfall is that it does not last that long if you plan on using it every day. Can Bare Escentuals make it bigger???

Q & A

Is the brightener a white or clear liquid or is my applicator faulty?

The first time I used the brightener, a white liquid came out on the brush. The five days since, no matter how many times I turn the base, it appears nothing is coming out.... or it's a clear liquid. Is it clear, am I doing something wrong or did I get a faulty applicator.
Asked by: MKI2
You would be able to see if something is coming out, since the color is a white-cream color.

What is the difference between Well-Rested and Stroke of Light

The descriptions for the Well-Rested Face and Eye Brightener and the Stroke of Light Eye Brightener are nearly identical, and these are both new products. Can you please explain the difference between the two? Thank you very much.
Asked by: Jarvae
The Well-rested is more of a brightener that adds shimmer and high lights the area, versus the eye brightener which does slightly more actual concealing

How do you open this pen? My husband & I both turned the tip clockwise. Nothing's happening.

I can't get this pen to work.
Asked by: Mrs. Y
Keep turning it, it will eventually come out. I've had several products like this before (not just bare minerals), and when you first start the product it takes a little while to get the liquid out of the tip.
