Bare Minerals Well Rested Eye Brightener Review, Photos and Swatches!

Bare Minerals Well Rested

"This eye-brightening shadow base is a favorite among the sleep-deprived for its ability to magically diminish the morning-drowsiness that results from too little sleep or a long day's journey. Well-Rested works as a beautiful, eye-brightening shadow base, and can also be used to brighten dark shadows around the eyes, nose, lips and anywhere you feel you need an extra pick-me-up." -Bare Escentuals

It's a luminecent beige with a hint of yellow..

It's very pigmented and you can control how you want it to look.

See how pretty and luminous it is?

I think this stuff is great. I've been using it mostly to set my concealer and add extra coverage. You can also wear it as an eyeshadow (since it is an eyeshadow anyway) or a natural highlight!

Overall, I'm very happy with this product. Since my under eyes are always so dark, this REALLY helps me. I purchased it on ebay for around $10.

I originally heard about this from Jacqueline. Her under eyes always look SO bright and concealed and it's because of this product. This is what it looks like on her under eyes.

Isn't this a gorgeous look, btw!?

Have you tried this? What are your thoughts?


  1. Whoa. That chick's eyebrow can slice butter.

    I haven't tried it, but I've jumped the Everyay Minerals bandwagon and I know I can find a dupe of well-rested. But you got it for 10 bucks so not bad!

    You ever watch QVC or HSN and just watch them apply makeup in real time?

  2. I used to use this one its own under my eyes for dark circles and it worked great! i have kind of forgotten about this product but now im thinking i should repurchase one to set my concealer!

  3. I have always seen Jacqueline mention it in her makeup looks and always wondered if it worked for darker skin tone.

  4. i wanted this too after i saw it on jaqueline but every time i try it at sephora it looks cakey on me..i think im not putting it on do u do it? with your finger?

  5. LOL, yeah louzee I do sometimes. It always looks like they're putting it on so "fakely" lol

    Alegra - I use my MAC 224 brush and buff it in.

  6. Thanks Natalie <3 Im going to try that..I know I must have been doing something wrong bc its always sold out too at my its looks so awesome on u & jacqueline..Thanks for the tips :D

  7. That is UH-MAZING. I have dark circles that I can't seem to get rid of. This product is seriously going to be the next beauty item I purchase! Thanks for sharing your find with us!


    P. S. Yes, that eye make-up is GORGEOUS. Her blending skills are insane.

  8. I have seen it and really want to try it! Maybe I'll start stalkin ebay to see if I can get a great deal like you did!!!

  9. Oh wow, thanks for this review,girl. I'll deff. pick it up.

  10. Wow, this looks very promising! I will def look into this now :)
