Benefit Eye Tint, August 31, 2006

I was unsure how the eye tint was going to work but I was really surprised at how great it was! Once you learn how to blend the tint right its gives great coverage of those dark circles without creasing during the day like most concealers. Its kinda tricky to blend it right, but once you figure out the right amount its really great!!

Great product, especially for fair skinned gals, March 13, 2011
I got the Eye Bright pencil on a whim at Ulta, since I was looking for something to cure me of undereye circles. I am up a lot of late nights and dabbing extra foundation under my eyes just doesn’t cut it. Plus, the extra foundation tends to pool in the fine lines around there. I’ve been using this pencil for almost three months and it is without a doubt the only thing I’d reach for if I could only wear one item of makeup every day. The pink color really pops your eyes and makes you look wide awake. Contrary to the other reviewer’s experience, I find it takes about two seconds to blend (just swipe your finger under your eye quickly), and then I’m out the door. I’ve received a lot of compliments lately that I look like I’m getting more sleep and that I look way younger (I’m a hair away from 30). This is the only change I’ve made to my routine, so I know it has to be because of this.
For those of you who watch the TLC show, What Not to Wear, this is the stick Carmindy used to use on all of the fair skinned women until she switched to her own line of products. You draw it along the inside of the eye, the bottom of the eye, and then blend with your fingers or dab your dry foundation sponge over it. Really looks amazing.
I WILL warn you that if you have tawny or warm-undertone skin, this might not be the product for you. It is PERFECT if you have rosy or even bluish undertoned skin (very common in redheads, etc). Perhaps it’s obvious, but women of color will want to look elsewhere (Mally Beauty Light Wand Eye Brightener is a bit darker, and more yellow-toned).
