I allowed myself to be talked into buying this by a Benefit SA. I am not one to be easily convinced or coaxed into buying something, but I have used some Benefit products that have worked well for me. Unfortunately, this would not be included in that group.
The idea is to use this as a highlighter under the brow, on the inner corners of the eyes and even under the lid. I thought this would brighten up my undereye area. But the product is not easy to apply and goes on chalky. I also noticed that it doesn't have much staying power. You have to keep reapplying it during the day.
I was convinced that this would be a good undereye brightener, but I cannot recommend it for that purpose. It's not creamy enough and doesn't blend well. This was a real disappointment. By contrast, I have been using Ooh La Lift under my eyes for a number of years. I use it after applying my concealer. It's kind of a last minute touch to give a little pop of brightness under the eyes. This is a creamy pinkish liquid that goes on smoothly with the felt tip applicator. I can blend in with my fingers or my Real Techniques Deluxe Crease brush. I think it does a great job.
This was a waste of money, because I just didn't use this Eye Bright much at all. I really didn't need that. Oh well, live and learn.
I really like this. I got it in a set because its not something I would normally buy or even probably consider buying or looking at.
-it's a very light natural pink color.
-brightens up the water line
-can be used anywhere on your face that needs some color correction. I've used it in dark bags (ugh) under my eyes to kinda reflect light. Sides of my nose where it's red, etc.
-this really is a multi use product that, on me, is neither drying or too oily.
-sets good with powder or with one.
Obsessed with this product!!! I don't have bad under eye circle, just some redness that comes along with not getting enough sleep or just being tired. I put a little bit of this sucker on around my eyes and it totally brightens and wakes up my entire face. This is a MUST HAVE for most of us who just don't get the required 8 hours of sleep a night. It really sets well and helps keep my eye makeup in place. Great product. Cannot stop raving about it!
i find this product completely useless. love their lemon-aid. this stuff just makes me look old.
This is a light pink-toned pencil that has shimmer. It's alright, but you can't get a good consistency by dragging the pencil over your lids. The pencil is too hard to do that and the skin around your eyes is fragile. And god knows I hate applying things with my fingers. Don't bother, it is not worth the money.
A little pricey for what it does. After a while, mine has become dryer and dryer and I have to apply with my fingers, because I don't want to drag a dry pencil around my delicate eye area. Now that mine is down to the half-way point, the product has separated from the wood, so I can't sharpen it anymore. Wouldn't re-purchase for those reasons alone.
As for the color, it's a beautiful cool light pink - but I don't notice any obvious miracles when I use it, at least not like they SAID I would! I've used it on no makeup days, just to even out my eyelids - but even then, within a few hours, it creases.
Just a blah product, not worth the money. Why do i always fall for the Benefit hype? It's just that it's such a CUTE company...everything looks like so much fun. I'm such a sucker, I could spend hours adding reviews here for Benefit products I have bought over the years.
I got this product as a free gift when I signed up to a magazine. I would defintely re purchase this item. I put a little underneath my eyebrows and it instantly brightens up my eyes. I also sometimes put some on the outer corners of my eyes but I dont really see any difference when I put it there. Its not the same as just putting white eyeshadow underneath your eyebrows as this eye bright gives it a more natural look and its not obvious that you have something underneath your brows. I think its worth it to purchase this item !
This pencil is just okay.
When I apply it.first of all with the passage of time the pencil gets hardened and then gets dry and makes the whole face look chalky under the eyes.
Its good for using it on the bridge of the nose..the color is absolutely beautiful. You can use it on your cupid's bow to make your lips look nice..
Its hard to sharpen though! and TOO expensive for a stupid brightening pencil. Overall i would still buy this product and recomend it for "highlighting" purposes NOT for concealing!
I actually quite like this product for an inner corner highlight. I don't think its worth it though to buy it when you can use a champagne colored eyeshadow and it works just fine. It also is very hard to sharpen, but it works fine and i will definitely use it up
I purchased benefit's eye bright about a year ago, so I've had a considerable amount of time to test it out. Honestly, it's okay. Used as an inner corner or brow highlight, it works great. However, it you put it anywhere else, it settles into lines and looks greasy. I tried putting it underneath and on the outer corners of my eyes, and it looked really nice for about an hour, however after that, it creased and looked cakey. It made me look like I had wrinkles! I'm not even 18 yet, so obviously this is a problem!
If you want a nice highlight for your inner corners, go for it. However, if you're going to use it anywhere else, don't get this!
