Today I’m bringing you my review of a rather uncommon product (at least for me) - BareMinerals Well-rested Eye Brightener Broad Spectrum SPF 20 Concealer.
I really like the name of it - Well-Rested, so cute, isn’t it?
The name is catching, this is probably the main reason I grabbed it.
The back of the jar gives all the product details: name, weight (2g), ingredients and SPF 20. I like that there’s SPF here. It’s such a good thing when I can additionally protect my under eye area. Cool!
The package is handy. You can open the sifter each time you need to get some powder. So nice for travelling. I wish there were many shades, but they offer only one.
In the cap it looks way darker rather than in life.
They advise us to buff it into the skin, but I know this “buffing” technique doesn’t work for me. At all. If I do buff it into my skin, then it looks horrible: flaking, with all the dry patches accentuated and creased into fine lines (even though I had no idea they existed). Such a nightmare.
That’s why I had to turn down this concealer for some time.
Recently I gave it a last chance to recover and finally managed to tame it and find good use of it. I could finally see the “well-rested” look, which I was dreaming to obtain for so long.
How do I apply it?I apply my makeup (liquid concealer + some powder along my lower lid to set the liquid formula), after that I apply this mineral concealer with the lightest veil.
I usually try to cover only my under eye dark circles. I try to avoid the upper part of my eyes, because here I have some fine lines, where it willingly settles. :(
And yeah, only after that I can see the so awaited results! My under eye area doesn’t look fair, it looks as though blurred and photoshopped.

Unfortunately, the results in the photos don’t look so obvious as in real life.
The staying power is great the entire day. I tested this concealer with a flashlight, and no, it doesn’t look white in the shots.
The price is $20.00.
Even though I like the outcome I get with this concealer, all this mumbo jumbo that I have to perform to apply it well freaks me out a little. That’s why I take off one star to be fair.
