Stroke of Light Eye Brightener - null
I thought all brighteners were rubbish, until this
I have used all the famous designer brighteners with promises of full coverage of my 11 year old dark circles (so aging!), but all of them just cost a fortune and were useless. The BM one came in a kit I was buying so I hadn't wanted this specific item and held out no hope it would work. Imagine my surprise when this actually stood up to it's name! My dark circles are now covered by the BM concealer and then this really does add a stroke of light, reflecting light back off the under eye area so I look like I have had a decent nights sleep. I am seriously impressed, especially as I wear really strong glasses that make the circles look worse than they are and really magnify lots of cakey concealer (of other brands). I love this, it does the job really well and is also good around the nose where those nasty red veins show through my pale skin. Marvellous, totally converted.
Never runs out.
I use this everyday it really brightens my under eye area and around my nose. I have had this for four months and it is yet to run out, the pot just seems to refill itself, brilliant buy and great for my purse.
Product is okay
This product is okay - it covers my dark circles but not completely. I would expect a product with this price tag to completely cover them and brighten my eyes up a bit. I use this product in conjuction with the eye brightener.
This product was colour matched to my skin but my eyes can still appear quite dark.
Love this stuff!
I first tried this because I got a mini sample with another order, and I couldn't believe what a difference it made from the first time I tried it. I don't have particularly bad circles under my eyes, which is why I didn't really think much of it when I first tried it, but it really does "brighten" when I put it on, regardless of whether or not I'm actually trying to cover anything. I use it whenever I put makeup on and it never creases (and I'll usually wear it all day long, from morning to night). This stuff is crazy good and I've recommended it to many of my friends!
Cover well but
I bought the luminous 1, and it covers my under eye well! Doesn't crease... But!! It has sparkles!!! I want it to look "natural" or as natural as can be, and now I have sparkles all over my face.... I've only used it once so I'm hoping it won't bother me too much over time....
Great highlight product
This is really a great product for anyone who is learning how to conture and highlight or has already mastered the art of it! I do want to caution people that if you are using Luminous 2 that is a bad idea! Luminous 2 is yellow tone and yellows usually bring out the blue tones. So if you are putting it under your eyes it will most likely bring out the circle under your eyes versus concealing them. I suggest you use Luminous 1- it might look a bit off but trust me when i say it will blend a lot better and will cover up those dark circles better.
A must have in your make-up bag!!
I just love the fact that I can look awake and bright eyed after I put this brightener on!!
Quit reading this and go buy it!!
Seriously, this product is amazing. I am only in my early twenties, but I do get some darkness under my eyes (especially when stressed or sleeping less). I normally would just swipe some sheer lightening shadow under my eyes, and that worked somewhat. When I got this brightener with my bare minerals starter kit, I decided to try it out. I was blown away by how much brighter and bigger my eyes looked, immediately and over the course of the day (it seemed to continuously brighten). I did not have any issues with caking (even after twelve hours in the Arizona heat!) and would recommend this to anyone struggling with darkness around the eye area.
Even if I don't wear any other makeup, I will always wear this. It camouflages dark circles, brightens and instantly makes me look better rested! It resists settling into fine lines, and doesn't irritate my skin. Fantastic product!
Can't live without!
This product is amazing! I always would joke about my "racoon eyes" because I have hereditary dark circles & undereye puffiness, regardless of how much sleep I get. This product makes them virtually disappear, and I've noticed an improvement in the look of the skin surrounding my eyes on the days I go sans-makeup. I wear the medium tan original foundation, so I went with Luminous 3 and it works like a dream.
This is the specific order I do things in (only because this is how the make-up artist at the counter told me to LOL):
1) Prime Time Foundation Primer
2) Original Foundation
3) Pure Radiance
4) Eyeshadow and/or Eyeliner
5) Stroke of Light Eye Brightener
6) Mineral Veil
I haven't had one pimple since I started using Bare Minerals, but I don't imagine this product would work well to cover it up. Otherwise, AMAZING product and I cannot live without it :)
