This did absolutely nothing for me. I found it to be expensive for what just seems to be a powder.
I got this from a swap without seeing this in real life and I was shocked when I opened the tub... I was thinking how to use a shimmery white powder? *gulp* and under the eye?
Then I tried this with my HG CdP concealer and I have a feeling that they are made to be a pair though I know this is made for LM's concealers and I can't compare as I haven't tried them. This sets the concealer really well. Smooth and flawless. No issue with settling into my line as with the other pressed powder I always use, well unless no touch-up till after-work.
Also, the powder I need for this is minimal, I need to tap off excess powder otherwise my under eye area looks shimmery.
I'm not a fan with the packaging as I hate loose powder form stuffs... I think it will be better if they can make the slits of the sifter smaller? I always get too much powder with one tap on the container on the screw top.
Oh my, my, my. I never thought I'd come across something that would truly help my dark circles. Concealer helps of course, but this is HG.
I love this product! I dont know what else to say other than it is easy to apply, makes my eyes look refreshed and radiant.
I purchased this product based on the fantastic reviews on this board. I'll join the minority in stating that it does nothing for me. I used Bobbi Brown corrector in light peach, dabbed a little Cle De Peau concealer, then set with the Secret Brightening Powder. The SBP seemed to emphasize my laugh lines and make my under eyes look chalky. I thought maybe I used too much so the next day I applied my BB concealer and a just a light dusting of the SBP. I didn't see anything at all - no brightening, no glow, no sparkle and certainly no camouflaging of dark circles (mine aren't even that bad). Would not buy again.
This is the best product I have ever found to set concealer! All other powders look heavy and too much!! I use laura's concealer or dior's skin flash and set with the brightening powder and I am good all day! I have noticed to that it helps so that no other product falls under my eyes, like mascara! No racoon eyes!! Also, the trick with this product is the brush that laura sells! Its a must have!
Really does work on undereye circles! I was shown this at a LM counter demo and bought it. A very little goes a long, long ways, so the price is worth it. I use it over LM concealer and the effect is great. It's not shimmery or glittery on the skin at all and really brightens up the undereye area.
I use this under my eye area to set my concealer and touch eclat. It brightens my under eye area up and keeps my concealer from settling into any fine lines. Reasonably priced, a little goes a long way and amazing result--will repurchase!
I love this powder! It is a super-fine milled powder that is shimmery only if you look at it very closely. I dust a light amount all over my face once all of my makeup is on, then I do my mascara. I start dusting under my eyes and then fan outward over my cheeks and forehead. It creates a very subtle all-over glow! I think it's the perfect amount of glow (glow, not sparkle or shimmer), and creates a fab "airbrushed" look better than bare minerals' mineral veil.
How do I positively KNOW this powder works? The other day at work, a coworker asked me if I had been trying to get pregnant. I said "no, why?" She says "oh, your skin just has that bright, radiant look to it." BEST COMPLIMENT EVER! continued >>
Love it. Like all the other reviewers, I just love it. Probably like many who first heard about this product, I simply could NOT believe powder can be effective in concealing undercircles. But somehow this powder just works. Unlike most other concealing products, this one doesn't dry my lines. Instead, my undereye areas feel very smooth and velvety after I apply it. It might be because of the very very fine texture of the powder. Besides, the shimmer is just right. I hate shimmery products in general, but this one works just fine for me. As its name suggests, it actually brightens your eyes SECRETLY. A really incredible product.
AMAZING! Until I purchased this NOTHING, and I mean NOTHING had been able to conceal my dark circles! After apply a cream concealer I use this with Bare Esentuals Summer Bisque. I mix them together with a concealer brush and apply under my eyes. Amazing! Iknow this just looks like a white powder but it works SO well! A little goes a LONG way too! This will probably last me years!
