    • Poor Value

    Comments about bareMinerals Well-Rested Face And Eye Brightener:

    I really love this stuff. It is light-weight, not greasy, and translucent with just a hint of shimmer. It brightens without adding much color (it is not a conceiler). It works well as a primer both on the eyelid and under the eye, and I've been able to skip an eye moisturizer when using it. My only complaint is that I go through it pretty quickly if I use it daily. I would expect to get more for the price.

    If you have little lines under your eyes

      • Under Eyes

      Comments about bareMinerals Well-Rested Face And Eye Brightener:

      For some reason I thought I could escape the tiny lines that my mother and grandmother have under their eyes. That I would be the one to beat genetics, but no such luck! I have the tiny lines. Most under eye products settle right in these creases, aging me about 10 years! This one does not.
      Also it is has a reflective property which covers up any under eye circle I might have. But mine aren't super dark, even on a "bad nights sleep" day. (If that's something you do have you might need more coverage.)
      It's totally blends and you can build it up if you want too.

        Comments about bareMinerals Well-Rested Face And Eye Brightener:

        I use this product only under my eyes and on my eye lids, after primer but before foundation powder. So... I've spent years trying to cover/hide/do anything to lessen the dark circles under my eyes. I haven't slept well since I was a tween and now being a single mommy - I really have dark circles.
        This product completely changes my entire face with just a few clicks, a little blending and voila! I'm in love. I've just recently started using BM products and am really impressed with them.

        Comments about bareMinerals Well-Rested Face And Eye Brightener:

        I was disapointed- I heard rave reviews on you tube and purchased it- for the price go with the drug store brands- Ulta sells them- lumi magick/ majick. It doesn't really provide coverage- it is kind of oily/ slick and doesn't leave a great sheen. If you want a real highlighter I'd go for benefits watts up.

            I've used this product for a couple of weeks now and really like it. I've bought a couple of other types of products like this in the past and did not like them. I haven't used for very long so I'm hoping that it lasts a while because it's hard to see how much you really have in the container/tube.

            Doesn't make a difference to me

                Comments about bareMinerals Well-Rested Face And Eye Brightener:

                I wanted to love this, for no makeup days when i just need very natural highlighting here and there and even under the eyes, but I was skeptical because when I swatched it on my hand, i noticed absolutely no difference...however I tried it on my face anyway because sometimes things show up differently on the face. I again noticed absolutely no difference. I also don't love the packaging, the whole twist up thing isn't really for me.

                  I gave this product three stars because i was less than impressed with how it compared to the powder. I bought this because the store was out of the powder and i needed something to cover up my dark circles asap. My dark circles are genetic and more of a blue, purple tint. Unfortunately this product was to sheer to cover them much. The concealer goes on smoothly and its a convenient product, however this did not give me the coverage i needed. I will be sticking to the powder.

                  No real results for me. Would not recommend this product for cover up. Okay for primer

                    What area specifically do you use it on? I'm guessing not the whole face.

                      A:

                      Here are some usage tips:

                      Hold the center of the pen and turn the bottom clockwise to start the flow of product. When using for the first time, turn approximately 5 times.
                      Use the brush tip to apply brightener to the inner corner of the eyes and under the eyes to disguise dark circles and instantly "wake up" your look. Gently pat eye area to blend.
                      To brighten facial shadows and give your complexion a fresh-faced glow, lightly sweep the brightener on all the areas you want highlighted-along the brow bones, sides of nose, top of cheekbones or around the lips.
                      Apply before or after foundation application for easily blendable illumination. You can also reapply throughout the day to give your complexion a quick brightening boost.

                  • Q:

                    I don't use foundation,I rarely use powder or primer. Can I use this alone to help with dark circles under my eyes? Concealer always looks bad on me since I'm not blending it into foundation.
                    Thanks!

                      bareMinerals Well-Rested Face And Eye Brightener features a super blendable, translucent formula that looks natural on all skin tones and can be used on bare skin without foundation. You can certainly use it alone to help minimize the appearance of dark under eye circles.
