I think we could all do with looking a bit more well rested recently, so this definitely caught my eye. With a mix of late nights and early starts, the bags under my eyes are definitely more prevalent than ever. My toddler has recently decided that sleep is for the weak so I’ve had my fair share of 5am starts!
What is it?
This is a mineral based eye brightening powder that has been specifically formulated to achieve the look that you’re a lot more alert than you actually are! Bare minerals is a brand I’ve always enjoyed, their brushes are fabulous and I adore their powder products! As soon as I clocked the ‘well rested’ description in the title, this product really was straight in my basket!
Bare Minerals tick a lot of boxes and so it’s a brand I would definitely recommend trying if you haven’t already – they believe that beauty and skincare products should be good for your skin and therefore they use clean formulas with natural ingredients derived from the earth, free of harsh chemicals, parabens, palm oil and phthalates. Bare Minerals are also a vegan and cruelty free brand that do not believe in animal testing. They have believed in these theories since their brand began 25 years ago!
According to the description on the brands site, this product will diminish the appearance of morning drowsiness by hiding dark circles and creating the illusion of a well rested face.
This product is very brightening! It’s almost like a matte highlighter which ensures a natural looking highlight to the skin as apprised to a shiny / glittery one. I’ve been applying this with a flat brush (*) and dabbing onto my under eyes and the centre of my forehead to give my skin a concealed glow! The way I’ve been describing this to my friends is like real life Facetune!
I think this would be great to use when you’re feeling a little hungover or you’ve been unwell, if really does make your skin look a lot more healthy.
If you’re wanting to create a fully matte make up look but still have a glow to the skin, I think this product works great. It can be used to brighten up the skin, highlight the cheeks or even on a pencil brush under eye eyebrows and in your inner corner.
For £22, I think the amount of product you receive and the size of the packaging is definitely on the smaller side, I was expecting a typical powder sized product but it is really small! A little really does go quite a long way which helps though!
