answer 1
I use this to "tight line" or rim the inner edge of my lower lid. (I've heard it called the "waterline"). I'm of the Princess Di school of blue tightlining the lower inner eyelid edge, and thank goodness this has updated me to the current era. At night I still like to use dark liner, but during the day this really brightens my eyes and makes me look - hallelujah - younger.
Really creamy and goes on easily. I do blot my lower eyelid with a tissue to dry it so that the pencil adheres better. It's also a good blend of white and peach, so you don't look weird.

Hi,

I use this in the inner corners of my eyes to give me a well rested look. I've also used this under my eyebrows as highlighter and also on my cheekbones as a highligher/luminizer. It's very versatile. I love it.

Hope this helps.

You can put a little bit on your finger and pat it into the inner corners of your eyes and under your brow bone. Or you can apply it straight from the pencil to those areas, and just pat it in. Just make sure to blend it well so that it looks seamless with the rest of your makeup.

Unlike other users i apply this after my makeup is done, meaning foundation, eyeshadow, mascara, eyebrows. I use it in the inner corners of my eyes and the outer corners of my eyes as well as my eyebrow arch and under my lower lash line (near the outer corners). The key is to blend enough to notice the highlight but not so much that you wipe the product off. Play with it and step away from the mirror to get an overall look and then upclose to make sure its not terribly noticeable. Remember this is NOT a concealer it is a highlighter. Concealers are meant to hide and cover blemishes discoloration, etc..highlighters are meant to enhance, draw attention to.

I use this to hide the color imperfections on my eyes. I apply it in the circles under my eyes and then I glide it from the outer corner of my eye up to the end of my eyebrow for that extra kick. Then blend, but not too much or you'll wipe it away.

I line it right under the arch of my eyebrow and I blend it with my finger or a foundation brush. You don't want to use too much though or it will over power your eyeshadow.

Hi,

Sephora sells a variety of sharpeners that work perfectly. Look for one that contains the shavings in an enclosed section, plus one that has a duo size. They're very inexpensive and last until they get lost. Sephora makes as nice duo sharpener as does NARS and UD (Grind House). DuWop makes a duo sharpener that even sanitizes the pencils as it sharpens.

Hope this helps.

I like this a lot better. For me it is less chalky and more blendable and subtle. It looks less obvious and thick in terms of formulation. You can also us it on more places to counteract darkness, like on the sides of your mouth.

Awesome both have their own uses, high brow is more emmolient which allows it to glide and blend easy to look super natural. Yet, eye bright is perfect for the tear ducts/inner eye! It's such a thick consistency so it wont move and get in the corner of your eye and give you those sexxxy boogies! Looks fresh all day! Make sure you set it with powder though!!

High brow is excellent for applying under the brow line to brighten up your eyes but it's not pink tinted. The pink tint really is magical for eliminating under eye circles.

Hi,

This is not made for the inner rim of your eye. Sephora sells a variety of liners for that purpose. This is made for the inner corners of your eyes to give your eyes a bright wide awake look.

I would not want this getting into the eye area which is what will happen with a non-waterproof product on the inner rim.

Hope this helps.

I'm fair skin with darkish blue in the corner of my eyes with a little darkness around the bottom of eyes. This did nothing for me but look like I had light pink pencil on top of the darkness, did not actually brighten or cover anything for me.

With strong yellow undertones in your skin, this is probably not the best product for you. I would recommend Laura Geller eye spackle. It is yellow and does a really good job covering dark circles, but you have to set it right away with pressed powder or mineral makeup to keep it from creasing, because it is very creamy.

What worked for me and was recommended by Paula Begoun's website Beautypedia.com, is Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Double Face Perfector. Covers the circles and doesn't creep into creases like Eye Bright did. The Maybelline product has a concealer end and a highlighter end. You need to blend the concealer fast because it dries quickly.
