Bare Minerals Stroke of light Eye Brightener Review



Bare Minerals say Stroke Of Light Eye Brightener will, ‘Immediately brighten the eye area and diffuse dark shadows while reducing the appearance of fine lines and dark circles over time. The illuminating tint blends seamlessly to conceal imperfections for a refreshed, radiant, even-toned look.’
After attending the Manchester bloggers meet at Harvey Nichols we was given a couple of samples one was a little tube of bare minerals stroke of light eye brightener, i quickly became intrigued by the product and it even more quickly became a new favourite of mine!
As the name says its an eye brightener, so its aim is to help make any dark patches you have appear lighter and brighter. The shade which i have is Luminous 1, its a very nude, pink shade that nicely matches my skin tone.
 The formula is very creamy but at the same time it still sticks to what it states, diffusing dark circles and reducing appearance of fine lines without appearing cakey on the skin, i really like the spongy applicator which i use to dab on a couple of blobs underneath each eye then i usually buff into my skin using my fingers. On days where I’m feeling over tired or a little under the weather i will wear concealer as well over the top but it is very effective that on a normal day i could use it without!
I really do love this product and ever since receiving a sample at the Manchester meet up i knew i had to buy the full sized product, now its an everyday staple in my make up bag! i use the tiniest amount each day so this big tube is seriously going to last me some while, I’ve had it since November and I’ve yet to make a dint :) so for £22 it’s well worth it in my book.
 A big thumbs up from me!

    Oooh this sounds so good! I've just bought a new Touche Eclat which is a similar price and sounds like it does a pretty similar job.. I'd love to try a sample of this to be able to compare the two! If only I had a birthday coming up so could put this on my wishlist haha.
    Lovely review :)

    • Yes it's very similar! I've never actually used it though only my mum so I couldn't compare the two, but I do love this it worked fab! :) xx
