bareMinerals Well Rested Face Powder is one of the most iconic makeup products in history and women have been raving about it for decades. Now it comes in a liquid form–bareMinerals Well Rested Face and Eye Brightener ($22). This is excellent news for us over 40 women who prefer a liquid that won’t settle into fine lines and wrinkles.
The two products are very different though. Well Rested Face and Eye Brightener is a lightweight luminizer for use under eyes in a new cream formulation. A few weeks ago I told you about the tinted version of this, Stroke Of Light. Well Rested is a pearly white shade with a brush applicator versus the Stroke of Light doe foot. It has light reflecting minerals to even and enhance skin tone while visibly minimizing fine lines and wrinkles. It is suppose to “instantly brighten and revive a lackluster complexion for a fresh-faced, youthful-looking glow.”
I actually prefer it as a face highlighter over an under eye brightener. Using it under the eyes takes some time and finess and frankly, I don’t want to mess with it that much. I have Stroke of Light for that. On the face, however, it gives a subtle radiant glow. Apply to the high planes of the face–cheekbones, brow bones, a stripe down the center of the nose. I like to use it over my eyebrows to give them a lifted look. It does creates a nice fresh-faced look and gives a youthful glow to your finished makeup.
Well Rested liquid is packaged in a click pen and I’ll tell you straight up I’ve never met a click pen I liked. You click, click away, nothing happens and then BAM-you have a big glop at the tip of the pen. At any rate, this is easy to throw in your bag for touch-ups throughout the day.
If you’re a fan of the original bareMinerals Well Rested, you will probably want to give this a try.
