Bare Minerals Stroke of Light Eye Brightener ($22) is a newly launched eye brightener for giving you a wide-awake look. Don’t confuse this one as a concealer as it works best, in my experience, in conjunction with your concealer of choice.
Available in four shades the multi-benefit formula contains peptides to diminish the appearance of fine lines as it brightens.

If you’re interested in Bare Minerals Stroke of Light Eye Brightener don’t head into the purchase believing these are a concealer as they are not. The product is quite sheer and should work well for those with very little to cover however, those of us who rely on a concealer to cover dark circles, puffiness, fine lines, etc…will not be able to use it as a stand alone product.
Now I like it but I dislike having to put even more “stuff” under my eyes. I’m already doing eye cream, concealer, and powder so this is an extra step in my regime but it could prove worthy for those who suffer from tired eyes or just need something to brighten up their eye area. I don’t mind the extra step so much since the product is quite well done.
I was a little scared at the use of “brightener” as I expected this to be iridescent, sparkly, or glittery. Thankfully it does not have any sparkle to it at all. It does contain a variety of minerals such as jade, pearl, sapphire, amethyst, etc…..which brightens eyes and diffuses the look of dark circles giving you more of a fresher, awake look versus a tired, fatigued one.
The brightener is a thinner texture with a super creamy easy to blend moisturizing formula that glides under eyes without pulling or tugging. It really has a lovely feel and translates well under drier eyes without creasing into finer lines or adding an extra weight to your completed look. As I mentioned above these run sheer so you aren’t going to conceal anything with these. Apply your concealer as usual and add a little Stroke of Light directly under your eyes in on the inside corners. Done! It adds instant light under eyes.
Shades 1, 2, 3, 4
I do wish I could take advantage of these as a concealer of sorts as the formula is positively heavenly but they are a tad too sheer for my issues. Overall, Bare Minerals Stroke of Light Eye Brightener is well worth picking up for those who need a little more brightening power than there concealer gives them. Or for those with more youthful eyes who need a little touch of concealing with added brightness to give eyes a wider awake, fresher look.
