This is a yellowy powder concealer. I really like the yellow undertone on me as I have an Asian golden undertone (I wear bare minerals Foundation in Light). Well Rested has more yellow to it than Summer Bisque, it cancels out blue shadows under the eye very well (within reason, it did not completely cover my husband's uber-dark German circles). I apply Well Rested first to cover circle, then my foundation, followed by Bisque (original shade, not Summer Bisque) as an eye brightener/allover shadow base. Overall this does what I want for me. It is a very subtle application and lightweight, but seems to make a big impact and mellows darkness and blemishes. During the winter, when my skin can handle something heavier, I use Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage instead because it masks imperfections and blemishes much better than Well Rested, but in heat and humidity its too heavy and melts. Like all bare minerals products, a little goes a long way so it could easily take a year to use this up, but I dislike the packaging as it is messy for travel. I will buy again.

An everyday pot that's become a little miracle! Having never used a product like this before it took some experimenting to see what works the best. I tried using this all over at first as an all over sort of luminizer. Looking back at pictures this wasn't a great look and definitely looked a bit greasy on the skin. I then stuck with just using this alone under the eye and felt it didn't do much. Now I have found the perfect way to use this is to use with the stroke of light. I first use the stroke of light in shade 2 to go under my eyes and at the sides of nose and sometimes down the center of face to highlight and then I go in with the well rested JUST under the eyes. This honestly finishes the brightening look off and makes dry under eye skin look creamy and radiant. Such a beautiful look and i've had the pot for going on a year now. Packaging is slightly annoying but I can put up with that.

I never thought I would like a powder concealer, but after a sample trial, I've been using it for about a year. It is silky smooth and blends in beautifully. It absolutely covers any discolouration or spots. I sometimes use it with no other make-up.

Simply amazing! The most illuminating and lightest concealer I've ever used with a crazy staying power! Just remember to moisturize under your eyes very well before applying this and of course bare minerals concealer brush is a must. I've used this almost every day, sparingly, sometimes twice a day for almost a year and there is still some left, so it's worth its price. Highly recommend!

I just finished a full-size version of this powder, and I can't say that I particularly enjoyed using it. First, it's a pretty pale powder, so if you're darker than NC30, this will be difficult to use. My skin ranges from NC30-35 and I can only use this in the winter, and even then, if I put too much of it, it would look too light and cakey. Second, I start to look really cakey really easily with this. I use just a tiny bit dumped into the cap, probably a little pen tip's worth and blend it in with a Real Techniques setting brush. I find that is accentuates the dryness under my eyes, even if I have just moisturized (and let my eye cream set in!) I don't have this problem with any other powder that I put under my eyes. The packaging was an improvement on the old BM packaging, since you could slide the cover to close the holes, but sadly, this powder just didn't work for me. I prefer a smoother powder like MUFE HD powder.

i bought this online from the ulta website. when i received it i was surprised to see how dark it appeared in the container - i have fair skin and i was scared at first glance that it'd be darker than me. after using it today to set my nyx hd concealer under my eyes, i've come to the conclusion that it's nowhere near too dark - it's just about the perfect shade! there's a slight shimmer to this powder, which also scared me a little - shimmer on my dark circles? won't that just draw attention to them? well, fortunately, when you apply it to your skin, you can't even tell. the color was excellent and brightened up my undereye area very well, but unfortunately IT DOES CREASE! i experienced creasing within half an hour of applying. real bummer considering my much cheaper fit me powder never had that issue. i may keep using it, however, and experimenting with the amount that it begins creasing at. perhaps i'm using too much? or too little?

I bought this to set my concealer under my eyes, as suggested through some YouTubers. Unfortunately, I think it might be too yellow for my skin tone. I don't find myself reaching for it often for that reason, and it also tends to look a little cakey under my eyes. I have better and cheaper setting powders, so I would skip this if you were pale like me. If you were more tanned though, it might be nice!

I tried a decent sized sample of this and was able to determine that this doesn't work for me. I had hoped that since it is a yellow powder -- it would brighten my undereye area. I LOVE Mineral Veil powder and it has never settled into my lines. This product didn't do anything except for accentuate the lines under my eyes. No thanks. :(

I wanted to like this. It came very highly recommended. (EmilyNoel83 anyone?) I thought I would use this as a powder to set my under-eye concealer with. It does have a good amount of coverage and the color is a nice corrective yellow, helpful for those of us with purple or blue circles. The problem, though, is that this is packed with sparkles/shimmer. The shimmer does throw a good bit of light to that area, but it makes my under-eye area look positively lizard like! All scaly and gross, and every fine line is highlighted. This is on top of my regular concealer, mind you. Ugh. I'm much better off using my favorite Smashbox Halo powder under my eyes, it makes them look smooth and airbrushed and doesn't highlight every flaw. Did I get a bad product? No one else seems to talk about the shimmer. Maybe it looks good on younger skin and it's not as noticeable.

This mineral eye brightening product is easy to use. I found that it can look cakey, if used too heavily. I also found when I applied it over my sunscreen (which can sometimes be greasy looking) that it had a really nice finish. The yellow tone was less brightening for me, since I am already quite pale. It is almost an exactly match for my skin tone, if applied with a sheer, buffed out layer. I ended up using this all over my face on occasion, when I didn't want to bring my separate foundation. It is good at covering dark/blue-ish tones, but less so for warm red tones.
Are you sure this product is discontinued?
