Despite its "normalcy" I'm finding myself drawn to this shade. It makes a great wash to "perk up" tired eyes. I've not tried it under my eyes yet as I have a pretty set undereye regime to keep things looking somewhat normal! LOL I'm sure there are similar, less pricey shades but I got this in the wish kit (which I'm thrilled with btw) so I'm pleased.
I continue to be surprised by all the good reviews here about this stuff. Someone gave me the Wish Kit. Thank goodness or I'd be hoppin' mad that I spent what they want for it. The colors are the same I would've chosen for myself, so I don't think that's the problem. As a new mother, I very much hoped Well Rested would do what they say it does. NO! If possible, I look more tired. Actually, I look like a corpse. My eyes appear more recessed and fine lines are more pronounced. What the ...? Yuckity yuck yuck yuck.
Not sure about this. Does cover dark undereye circles but also has a greyish cast on me.Prefer Cory Cosmetics conceler
What a great nuetral color from BE...not that BE doesn't make a slew of colors that closely resemble this shade...because the do...Bisque,Vanilla Sugar,Soul and I am sure a few that I can't think of right now. Besides that...Well Rested is my favorite color from the recent Wish Kit that QVC offered as a TSV in June. It is a great off white that works wonders as a base color before shadows OR can be a great wash for a day when all you really want is just a little bit of color to even out your eye area. Very nuetral and can be applied TOO heavily and become chalky, but with a light hand a great color, that I am glad was included in a kit, so I didn't have to pay $14 for one shade.I am a nuetral toned PPP w/brown hair and eyes. continued >>
This is quickly becoming my HG base eyeshadow color (I usually use Stila Dune). This is very similar in color to Dune in that it is a yellow based beige. When I first saw it I was not impressed...it looked just like a loose face powder in terms of color and consistency. I gave it a chance as a base and it brightened up my whole eye. Have to be careful, it is so concentrated that it is quick to turn chalky. A little goes a long way. As a bonus, you can apply this *very lightly* under your eyes and voila, no circles! The trick to application is to make sure you do not see loose particles on the end of your brush. Easy does it. I am a cool toned fair brunette. Loveeee this. So impressed with BE.
Wow! Since I started using this e/s people starting noticing that I look "different" and "less tired." It definitely lives up to it's name. When I first got this, it looked just like yellow-toned eyeshadow but after I put it on my eyes looked alive. Definitely recommend.
I use a mixture of 2.3 & 4.53 to get my complicated skintone. When I tested this on my lids, it looked way too chalky. It did, however, make my eyes appear bigger but I can get the same effect by using Almay's lasting concealer in medium. Obviously not a fan of this=) but the quality is really good. Great coverage and I know this will be a great concealer for someone out there.
Another wonderful shade from the BE Wish Kit. Now I use this with bisque on my blue undereye circles--seems to conceal them as much as possible. Works as a great wash on eyelids, too--really does provide a canvas for any color you want to apply.
Got this in the Q's TSV and it's the little pot that I reach for the most. Works best w/ the brush that came with the kit for a WASH of color beneath the eyes to brighten and even dark circles. Careful, using too much and it becomes very opaque and chalky. Just the right color for me, a LLL. Packaging stinks b/c if you drop, that't the end of that. Still gave it 5 lippies, b/c it's the perfect color for me. I like it better than YSL's Touche Eclat #1 b/c applicator is smelling rather mildewy, eewww! update 6/08 still using this as an under eye brightener- this stuff is really amazing for that. I don't use as an e/s base because I prefer creamier products, but for under the eyes, this is my go to, everyday item.
Well, I'm impressed. This has more opaque coverage than the BE foundations and Bisque concealers. I use it mostly to give the area just underneath the eye a lift. It truly does make me look more awake yet it doesn't get cakey. It doesn't look too flat or too shimmery. The first time I used it, I'd had less than 3 hours of sleep...and you could tell. But after applying WR, I looked like I'd had a full 8 hours of sleep. I didn't give it five stars because the shade is very light. I'm a LM Sunny Beige/Golden Beige, MAC C35, BE Medium (w/ yellow undertones) and it's light on me. I do have to use a bronzer over that area to even it out. After I do that, you can't tell it's too light. I'd love it if they made a "Well Rested" medium shade. This is one product that truly lives up to its name.
