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.

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.

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!
Regina from massachusetts
works as advertised but be super careful to not use too much or you're a revrrse raccoon!!! dust lightly and you'll get a smooth, illuminated undereye!
Does make a difference
Mrs P from Naples, FL
I lightly brush the concealer under my eyes in a "V" shape, stretching the skin a bit to get into the creases.
Frances from New York
I recently purchased this eye powder during the 21 days of beauty sale and it arrived just on time. After two days of not getting a full night rest, I was hosting an event and looked tired. On the day of my event, I used this powder and fell in love. I immediately saw the difference.
I'm not a fan of the packaging, but it's your typical powder sifter jar
I use as a concealer
Jlb102 from Lynchburg
I know this is for under eyes but if you're pail like me, this works better as a concealer. The shade is perfect.
I've been using this forever!!
Miss JoJo from Central California
I've been using this for many years. It's sets my makeup and gives me a fished look without being caked or heavy. I love it and wouldn't be without it!!
Not for mature eyes
Heather from Maryland
I used this with and without BM concealer. Either way it was bad. I wanted to live it, but hated it.
New Favorite Under Eye Prodct
Pewter68 from NV
For years, I've used the Becca under eye brightening product, but it always LOOKED like I was wearing it. This product is far more natural. This is now my one and only makeup product for my under eye area. It lasts all day, doesn't move, and doesn't settle into my fine lines (I'm 50) at all. I love it, and when I'm finished with this container, I'm buying another.
Brightens but doesn't Conceal
OneCueT from OKC, OK
The listing pic is deceiving. This is an under eye loose brightening powder. The shade compliments lighter skin tones. The formula does brighten with an illuminating quality. It does not conceal dark spots. You'll need coverage from a concealer. This is a fiishing under eye type powder. The packaging does have a closable sifter to prevent powder spilling over.
True to its name!
April from WV
This brightener is amazing! This has been a staple for me since the first time I tried it. Actually covers my dark circles and stays put all day! Doesn't settle into fine lines or look cakey. Just gives my eyes a "full night's sleep" look no matter how long my day is. I blend a little into the inner corners of my eyes too for a little extra glow. Love it!!! No other product comes close to this.
Val J. from Loudon, TN
I apply this under my eyes and around the inner corners of my eyes after foundation for a bright and refreshed look! Absolutely love this!!! It's a staple for me.
so light, it seems stark white
jc from MI
I have a medium skintone, and this power is sooooo light! I can't use it. It seems only the most fair skintones can use this. I wish they had different shades.
I would buy this product again
Kris from Spokane wa
I use an eye makeup brush applicator. It's the perfect color my my fair to olive skin tone. I love the powder compared to the liquid especially in warm weather. It doesn't seem to crease. Covers up redness and blemishes well.
Already bought a backup!
Baroness Isabeau from Tacoma, WA
I have thrown out numerous concealers after trying them over and under foundations powder and creme. This one *works* for me. It is the only thing that covers, brightens and blurs without settling in and exaggerating my lines and wrinkles. Using it with a Bare Minerals concealer brush under eye and a smaller brush for spots. A *little* goes a long, long way. I still use the original powder foundation so I don't know how it would work with a liquid. My guess is yes but I'd check w/ Bare Minerals regarding that.
PrincessHadiza from IL
This product was just white. It doesn't blend in for darker skin tones no matter how hard you try to blend it. I had to return it because it was a wrong fit for my need.
best eye primer ever!
Amy from Kennewick, WA
For all those that say this is too dark, i think you must be reviewing the wrong product. This is very very VERY light.. there is no way this is too dark for anyone. This is the best eye primer i have ever used. I use this first on eyelids and under eye.. then i use bare minerals loose eye shadow and foil it.. and this stays. some eye primers don't stay.. even with dry eye shadow.. like he smashbox eye primer. that stuff is terrible..i live this and will never use anything else
Holy grail product!
klee from Georgia
I do not have dark circles however, I do have bluish skin on my inner eye corners and slightly under my inner eyes. I have tried many concealers and disliked everyone for various reasons....will not stay put, adding powder makes it cakey. Etc! This is my HOLYGRAIL product for covering the blue and adding brightness to the inner corner, outer corner of my eyes and under my brow. What the heck....I even dab a bit on the top of my nose and my Cupid's bow. Just enough coverage and highlight!!!! LOVE IT!!!!
Love this product!!
NanNan to six from Milton,WV
I use this on my eyelids before applying my shadow. My eyelids are becoming discolored as I'm aging, but well rested completely covers all the redness.
I love Bare Minerals
Karen from Ryan, Oklahoma
I love all the Bare Minerals products. I always had problem skin and allergic to lots of products. Once I started using Bare Minerals no problem and my skin is great.
Brinda from Oregon
This product definitely helps me conceal my dark circles and blends nicely with my bareminerals original foundation. I will definitely be repurchasing this in the future.
If you have fair skin, this isn't for you.
Haley from Idaho
This has such a pretty finish, but it's definitely too dark for me. I wish they had a wider range of shades because I know I can't be the only one! This seems best suited for medium skin tones only. Not for light or deep shades, which is disappointing. I'd LOVE this product if they'd make it in different shades.
Not for me
TexasGirl from Dallas, Texas
I love all things bareMinerals, but not this. It didn't work or make my eyes look as advertised. I returned.
Kodaroe from Nevada
At first I did not like this, it sat in my drawer for a while. But, lately I have been using it and found that it works best with a damp beauty blender. I usually pay it on the top of my hand, then apply to my eyes. It definitely brightens.
Kari82Texas from Fort Worth, Texas
I have fair-light skin and this was SO dark on me. I thought it would be light, since it says it's an "eye brightener", but it's TOO dark. I tried tapping off all the excess product & tried to not use a lot, but it doesn't work for me. :( I'm either going to save it for when I have a tan or I'm going to give it to a friend with a darker skin tone. I still LOVE every other BareMinerals products I've bought. I'm obsessed with their silky-smooth BARESKIN® COMPLETE COVERAGE SERUM CONCEALER!! ❤️❤️
