Questions & Answers for bareMinerals bareminerals&reg Stroke of Light™ Eye Brightener

Question
Is this product like well rested for the face?
I want well rested in liquid form to cover the purple bags under my eyes. I tried the new click pen well rested but it was more brightening w/out the yellow base to cover my purple bags. Anyone know? I noticed this product is offered in different colors....is it just for eyelids or can I use it under my eyes for the bags?

I'm not sure if this helps, but I use luminous 1 for my undereye circles, and am pretty pleased with the result. It doesn't completely hide them but definitely helps.

I was told that this is used for under eye coverage, not eyelids. It definitely covers dark circles. Bare Mineral assistant helped match what shade I needed. For eyelids try the primer for eyes along with the brighter. The primer is amazing and can even be worn alone. I use the primer for eyelids only, but my friend uses it above and below eyes.

i tried both products on in the store, one on each eye...i work nights and was tired, but didn't have bags per se, and i found both did a fine job concealing fine lines, minor discolorations plus both were outstanding at creating a smooth, brightening effect. i really liked both :-)

I think this product is intended for use all around the eyes--undereyes / inner corner darkness included. There were 4 colours available, I tried the lightest [pink toned] but there were other yellow-based shades. It's probably best for young, line-less skin as I found it drying with a tendency to accentuate fine lines. As a highlighter it's pretty good--as a concealer it likely won't be enough to cover dark circles but might work in conjunction with a concealer much like you'd use YSL's touche eclat.

I tried out both in stores. I was looking for something that both diminished and concealed the dark circles and bags I had. Although Well Rested felt nice, it was translucent and I hate those applicator pens anyway.

I really liked the feel of Stroke of Light, and the fact that it has coverage built in due to the tint. I'd try it out. I am a recent convert to Stroke of Light and I am loving it.

Be sure to moisturize BEFORE applying this product (or any product).
I've had the same problem in the past. The under eye area is often neglected; but it's one of the most 'needy' areas of our face when it comes to moisture. I use Clinique All About Eyes eye cream on lids, under eye, and 'crow's feet' area twice daily - maybe an extra layer under eyes when needed. 'Pat' don't 'rub' the eye cream/moisturizer & this product onto the under eye area for best results.

I would recommend using the BareMinerals foundation over this product to get the best results. It could be your moisturizer causing the creasing.

answer 4
that's interesting... this is the first product that DOESN'T do this for me. are you using a good under eye cream as a base before you put it on? the skin under the eyes is the only place that doesn't have oil glands so if the skin is dry it might crease more? try using eye cream before you apply if you aren't already.

when you put it on sort of pat it in under the eyes then do somethng else like say your eye shadow but before you finish your make up pat your finger across it one more time you dont need to use any foundation under or over this nor do you need a setting powder over this

In my sample i received color 2 - luminous, however, I'm pretty sure that before I received the sample, there was a choice of which color sample to receive. Unfortunately you might have to go in to a store and test them. I have light skin and 2 works perfect for me!

Luminous 1 should be a good match for you since you lean more on the blue tones, luminous 1 is a cool tone. luminous 2 pulls more yellow/warm.

Similar to Benefit's Ooh La Lift?
I'm wondering how this product compares to Benefit's Ooh La Lift. I see that it at least comes in four shades, so I'm sure it has more coverage than Benefit's sheer pink-y color -- but is it a huge difference?

I did the same exact thing...at first I bought luminous 2, but when I got home and compared them I realized it was too dark. So I returned it, and with the sample in hand compared it to the four options. It looked the closest to luminous 1, so I bought that one. I am pretty positive that they're the same. So far, I've been happy with luminous 1. Good luck!
