This product is life changing for women with dark circles under the eyes. Don't know how many concealers i tried. All powders put on the concealer let it look Grey and dark again. But not this one! Almost i don't Need any concealer anymore. This product now is my concealer!!! I only wear my Foundation, put a second layer at the under-eye area and set it with this secret brightening powder... ready!!! No Problems like creasing anymore. Hands down. I'm blessed with this product. It should be more known.
I realize I'm solidly in the minority here, but I am not a fan. The product, used very lightly over the top of NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer, made my undereyes look oddly grey. And it creased like crazy. I tried applying lightly with a brush and baking with a damp beauty spong, a la Nikkie Tutorials, to no avail. Would return if I believed in returning makeup, as it was fairly pricey for a product I will throw away.

Easy to use. Brighter. Gives a wide awake look. Does not settle into fine lines. Natural looking. A little goes a long way. Really looks natural.

I just bought this powder for the second time. It's light weight and really brightens my skin.

This is my 1st review for Ulta. I've never used this brand before, but asked an associate for something to brighten my under eye circles and stop the end of the day eyeshadow and mascara smudge. She recommended this. I'm so glad she did! It's taken a decade off my looks. It's light and not heavy. I love it! Highly recommend it!

Love this product!

I finally found a brightener that will not settle under my eyes! It really does brighten and make my eyes pop. I am in my late 50's so it has been hard to find products that don't settle in wrinkles. Please keep this product in stock forever!!

Love this under eye brighter. Makes the under eye smooth.

Have used this product for years! Love it. It does brighten under eye area without heavy powder or caking. I am 62 and does not age under my eye.
Anita from NJ
Well like any powder probably would, this made fine lines under my eyes more prominent. I guess the Secret is that this product isn't any good if you have any lines or wrinkles under your eyes.

I have used this and the regular setting powder but I definitely prefer this for my under eyes which are naturally dark.

I've been using this for years for my eye area. It works magic on dark circles and other imperfections. A little goes a long way. Highly recommend.

A little goes a loooong way. And if you are going to be in photos, be careful not to over-do it.

I was excited to use this and brighten my under eye area. However it did more to emphasize my fines lines than brighten dark circles. I love everything else I've bought from Laura Mercier, so it may be this product would be more effective for younger women.

I have been using this powder for a few years and I can assure, this is not your average face powder. The milling is so extremely fine that it sets your concealer without sitting on top of your skin. It is most definitely worth using.

I love this powder! Its so translucent and lightweight, yet it brightens the eye area without any creasing. Once u get the creasing smooth out of concealer, I lightly tap on the powder with a brush after tapping off the excess and nothing moves throughout the day. Eyes look younger and more rested.

I usually use Laura Mercier translucent powder to set my NARS concealer in Ginger. This didn't work for me since it brought out my dark circles, got into my eyes and made them scratchy when I used a little brush to apply, and left a white cast. I returned it.

I am a forever friend of this product. Although my eyes are showing the normal wear and tear signs of a 76 year old, this powder creates a veil of light around the entire eye and makes them appear "refreshed".....does not emphasize my well -earned smile lines or age related crepiness.....I call it a miracle! And I don't leave home without it! Years ago, when I was I was a makeup artist, I used to use a product similar to this around the eye of the model or on brides....the photography "catches" this subtle light and really makes the eyes "the focus".... This product is far superior.....mainly because it literally disappears....leaving only the glow behind. Can only imagine the miracle this powder would create on younger eyes....hey, now, don't y'all go ahead and buy all of the stock....I still need my "secret"....LOL

I tried this product, but I would really like to return it. I didn't care for it at all and didn't think it helps my under eye area at all! On a more positive note, I did try the Tone powder meant for fair skin, and I do like that. Can I please return this white powder which does nothing for me?

Maybe a lighter shade would have been better.I like the change it makes around the eye

This is my 2nd order, keeps the concealer from smudging and makes my eyes pop!

I have used the Secret Brightening Power for 15 years. It is one of the best products I have ever used and truly is the secret ingredient to looking great on and off the camera.

Just the right thing to "seal" the under eye corrector

Sets my concealers without becoming cakey or settling into fine lines.

This stuff is the bomb. Seriously. If LM ever discontinued this I shall be despondent because it's one of those holy grail products that once you try it, you never want to be without it.

So I love this brand, but this product isn't good as the others in my opinion. It had horrible flashback and it creased my concealer. Don't recommend it.
Beth from Texas
I love this stuff. Doesn't collect in my under eye wrinkles and keeps my eyeline and mascara from smudging under my eyes. It doesn't take much so although it's a little pricey it lasts a long time.
