Most Helpful Positive Review Best of all BE purchases I've ever made
I've been a BE user for at least a decade, and, while I love their products, I've never been compelled to review any of them... until now. The Well-Rested concealer has inspired me to action. Whenever I needed to conceal something previously, I simply used my regular matte Fairly Light foundation--but on a whim I wanted to try something new. I compared Well-Rested and the various "Bisques" alongside my foundation and it was clear that the bisques would be FAR too dark... but Well-Rested is just a hint lighter than my foundation (and a hint more yellow), so I chose that. As it turns out, the slight shade differential has worked wonders for my concealing needs. WR makes a wonderful undereye concealer, but works equally well at conealing blemishes, slightly-red scars, redness around the nose/chin, etc. It seems to be a little more matte than the matte foundations themselves, so when I've "inspected" the coverage hours after applying the WR concealer, everything looks smooth with NO attention drawn to the areas I've been trying to hide.
In summary: LOVE this product. It's completely eliminated any need I might have had for a cream- or liquid concealer.
Most Helpful Critical Review Not for ladies with fine lines around eyes
I am in my 50's and have a few fine lines around my eyes, and big pores. This product accentuates both. When I use it under my eyes to offset my dark circles (which is why it was sold to me), my fine lines turn into very pronounced lines that you can see a mile away. In a picture, it looks like I have a shelf under my eye. It also sticks in my big pores and won't blend at all. Might work for a teen with no pores and no lines.

what took me so long to use this? I purchased I a few months ago. arrrrgghhh
I am 52 with decent eyes. I recently tried this...and WOWZA!!!
I use a primer, concealer then this. Very little is needed. I apply with a small kabuki brush. Of course I set all my makeup as a final step.
My face looked fresh and bright all day.
Been buying this for years
Leenie from Wareham, MA
I love bare mineral products, but this one is my favorite. With just a tiny amount of concealer my dark circles are gone and my facial tone is brighter.
Used for 25 years!
Rocketmom from Dawsonville GA
I have used Well Rested for 25 years, because it's a clean makeup and it works to minimize my dark circles. When I use over my concealer, it sets and brightens the under eye area.
I LOVE this stuff!!!!
Brittany from Indiana
I do not like cream or liquid products. I prefer all powder abs this covers up my under eyes and brighten them! I always look rested and ready for the day.
Ms M from Bloomington, IN
I love the coverage of this concealer. I will buy again but I need the next darker color. This shade was too light for me.
Not a universal shade
Meg from KY
I am extremely pale and this product is straight up yellow on me. I will give it some credit in that it does make my under eyes look smoother. Doesn't really brighten, though.
Courtney from United States
It's supposed to brighten, but it just looked like I was wearing a bunch of 2 shades too light makeup caked onto my eyes when it was really just a light dusting. Also, it creased really bad in my fine lines/wrinkles. For reference, I use bare minerals light/medium neutral in both the liquid original mineral concealer and 16-hour full coverage concealer.
Brightening + Lightweight

Lovely powder do my concealer and then i bake a bit and then i add some of this powder and it brightens my eyes very nice highly recommend
Jen from Ulta 🛍 from Epping, nh
I work at ulta so I've tried many under eye brighteners and this is the BEST! It covers my under eye circles and highlights my under eye amazingly. Compared to other brands of brighteners this one is priced pretty good as well. I love it. Definitely a staple in my daily makeup routine. Even on those days I wear minimal makeup. I normally don't do reviews but this product is so good I had to let everyone know about it🤩
Jen from Las Vegas
Great as a finisher under the eyes after concealing and setting I put a little just enough to brighten the under eyes. I did get the tip from an influencer.
Chelsea from Spring Hill, Tn
Bare minerals loose matte powder foundation has been my go to for years and years, I love this brand. However this stuff is AWFUL. I've tried it with multiple products, foundations, and brushes and it separates and makes me look scaley no matter what I've tried. Idk what I'm doing wrong if it has such positive reviews. After today I give up.
Product junkie from Northern Cali
This is a repeat purchase for me. That says a lot because I love to try new things! Well rested by BareMinerals is the only powder formula that is meant to go under the eyes that I know of & it works wonders! You only need a dab. I also use it to cover up pigmentation on my cheeks too & on small blemishes. It doesn't highlight the area but oddly it has a touch of something in it-which I'm sure helps with the well rested meaning. Overall you don't need much, therefore it lasts a good while. It does what it says & because it's not a cream formula there's no creasing & it's an easy quick application.
Alicia from GA
I wanted more light around my eyes, so this works. However, I placed on my cheek bones. It wrinkles when I put under my eye over my concealer.
Priscilla from Texas
I use this over my shape tape concealer and my eyes immediately look brighter and much more awake.
Brie from US

Kf from Kansas City
Love bare minerals but not this product. Settled into lines, cakey and drying. Immediately returned.
Andrea from LA
I seen someone raving about this product so after some time debating I decided to try it. This product will separate your foundation/ concealer only in the area where I applied the powder did it get immediately patchy and break apart. This has never happened to me ever. I knew I had to return immediately
This is not universal-stay away if you're Brown!
Nikki from Florida
I would not recommend this powder if you're darker than light to medium skin tone. I bought this thinking it would be universal since there is only one shade, and there has only ever been one shade.
I would give no stars, but I had to select at least one.
It is drying and not flattering under the eye. It sticks to texture like no one's business.
The elf under eye powder is much better.
cakes in wrinkles unless applied just so, but good coverage
MS from California
When I first got it, it did cake in my undereye wrinkles so I wondered how this would make me look better. But I needed an eye SPF for vacation. It works if you do the following: apply after eye cream so there is a moist base, I apply after tinted Tacha eye cream. Swirl and tap a fluffy concealer brush, but don't buff under the eyes. Press it in with the brush. That seems to work better.
BEST STUFF EVER
Leslie from Minnesota
Highlight and conceal all in one. It doesn't look like Im wearing makeup, this stuff is a miracle worker.
Not for medium skin
Maggie from Miami, FL
I have medium skin tone and it looks awful. Even my 10 yr-old noticed and told me that I look sick. For medium skin tones, it looks ashy, unnatural.
