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.

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.
KE from Washington
I love this stuff! I use it around my eyes and sometimes on problem areas on my face. Wakes me up and makes me look like I don't have an insane toddler

I use this to help my eyes look wider and brighter! I love that it has spf to protect from sun damage!

I have hereditary dark circles. Brownish blue, so the dark circles look horrible. Concealer has been a big part of my life and honestly no concealer is making the cut these days (age and stress), not even ShapeTape!! I use color correctors, brightening eye creams, I've tried it all! And I started getting into BareMinerals and gave this powder a shot! Wow! It actually works. With or without liquid concealer underneath. And it last at least 6-8 hours. It does crease, but one battle at a time! You do need to try different ways to apply it and see what works best for your skin and level of coverage need. I need full coverage, so I do put a dot of concealer on my darkest area pat it in lightly and then lightly pat this powder on over my whole under eye with a concealer brush. It looks good and I look refreshed! This is a win! I knocked out a star because of the creasing..
I would buy this product again.

Under the eyes.
Emma from Pottstown Pennsylvania
I enjoy this product. sometimes I put liquid concealer underneath and use this eye brightener as a setting powder on top. other days I simply use the brightener powder as a
concealer. I would say it is multifaceted and packs a punch for coming in such a teeny jar! I highly recommend this.
TC53 from Colorado
I'm 53, I don't wear foundation and concealer just has never looked right with bare skin. I have slight darkness under my eyes that is magnified when wearing a mask, I needed something. I decided to try this on a whim, and all I can say is LOVE! It diminishes the darkness and brightens the area and blends flawlessly on a no makeup face. I use very little with a small fluffy brush and my face is "naturally" transformed.
Cannot wear with foundation
Blank123 from Baton Rouge
This concealer is good but only if there is nothing on your under eye. CANNOT layer cream concealer or foundation or powder with this. Maybe if you want a natural no makeup look this is good? It creases with foundation on so doesn't work for me.
I Use As My Foundation
CC from Boston, MA
This is listed as a concealer, however, it matches my skin tone to a T. I use this as my foundation, and have since 2003. This has taken me from occasional mild acne in my early 20s, to the fine lines of my early 40s, I love it.
BOTH powder concealers by BM are SO GOOD
MOO from Napa Ca
i love this product. I first bought the regular powder concealer in bisque and that is my holy grail (im 33 with slight dark circles and a few fine lines) i am almost out of that so i decided to try this out. I also use the BAREPRO serum liquid concealer because i needed a little more coverage and i switch between my BM Matte mineral foundation and my NARS radiant tinted/MACstudiofix blend. Latley ive been using the liquid found/concealer combo then i set with a little bit of bisque and then dust a little bit of this on.... LOVE.
Im not sure why people are saying this is dark.... they must be reviewing the wrong product, this isnt dark on ANYONE, its not possible. And for the people saying its cakey...they are def applying it incorrectly. You dont need alot of this. A dime size amount of this powder would be sufficient.
Also, using this alone works amazing also. I will continue to buy this, i will never go back to regular setting / "baking: powders again.
Great for dark circles!
Kam from Rhode Island
Totally erases my dark circles! Brightens my entire face. I haven't used BM in years and was never really impressed with their products, however in my search for cleaner, cruelty free products I figured I'd give them another try and I'm so glad I did! I'm a tired mom who has to get ready with minimal time so the less products I need to put on the better and this product is a game changer. Highly recommend!
I love it! Will def buy it again!

Best Under Eye Product
Melly from Fresno, CA
This is the best kept secret for well rested under eyes. I found this user on tiktok and politely asked her, her secret to bright and beautiful under eyes and she shared this amazing product. Ive bought this product several years back, but never knew how to use it. Now I know a little goes a very long way!!
Doesn't hide my dark circles

Just looks like I put a bunch of whit under my eyes. Doesn't hide the dark circles. Wish I had saved my money
Nice concealer with good color
Dee from Kentucky
I use summer bisque in the summer. But, it tends to look too dark in the fall/winter months. I also go lighter on my foundation. This just works for me. Use a light hand. A little goes a long way.
Bonnie from Waukesha WI
It is a banana colored powder when I apply to my skin. I'm 56 years old and don't have much for wrinkles. But, this needs to be applied very lightly as it does look crepey with too much. And skin must be dry. I found I'm better off just using my Glossier concealer. It's the bomb!
Only Concealer/Brightener I will use.
Tigergirl1960 from Houston, TX
I was born with Translucent Skin on my Face & very dark circles under my eyes. W/O Well-Rested Eye Brightener people would ask me if I had been punched in the Eyes!
