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!
The fab makeup artist @ Sephora Aventura- totally did me over, Using products I'd never even dreamt of using much less heard of.
When I left he gave me a few samples as I ended up spending over $100.
One of these samples was a fine powder that he put in a small jar, that sample lasted at least 5 months!!, so having no idea what it was I searched the Sephora website and concluded it was this miracle powder, Sent hubby in to purchase it and I'm in love - Again. I have puffy under eyes( or maybe they are just hollow) Anyway, I use Touche Eclat #4 (YSL) And then set it with this silica powder- the difference is immediate my eyes are radiant -Sometimes i use it on its own over foundation- and now when I take photos I dont look like the girl with the puffy/dark undereyes. I'm black - milk choc complexion and use #2.
I Highly highly recommend applying with a small fan brush- I purchased mine at the airport but am sure you can buy @ sephora too.
I couldn't love it more and it lasts For-Ev- Er!!!
I've been using this for several years now and yeah, it's good stuff! I was highly skeptical that it would do anything special and while it's not a miracle worker it definitely makes a difference in the look of my undereye area. I have tried both colors and the #1 is much better for my light skin (NC 20-25) It feels like silk and sets concealer perfectly, brightens, and never settles into my fine lines or looks cakey. I really hate the idea of having to buy a special powder for one tiny place on my face but having seen the results I will continue to purchase.
