Bare Escentuals Well Rested, Grail or Fail?

excuse me while i lick chocolate from my fingernail...this is what you get when you post and indulge in your favorite candy treat at the same time. i'm almost annoyed that my typing is interfering with my eating.

you're looking at the Bare Escentuals "Well Rested" for eyes. i purchased this product several months ago. as a mom, there aren't a lot of mornings that i wake up feeling like i had the best sleep of my life. which means anytime a products touts itself as the eye awakener, i definitely perk up.

the sales girl promised, put a little of this under your eyes and you will look well rested. those dark circles will just disappear.

she was wrong.

in fact, those dark circles didn't disappear, they only looked worse. the loose powder was difficult to spread, it provided poor coverage, and it looked caked. don't get me wrong, i LOVE me some Bare Escentuals, it's just that this product is an unfortunate Fail.

while i would recommend Bare Escentuals foundation to anyone (it's easy, flawless, and works for everyone), i would also recommend avoiding the "Well Rested".



  1. Glad you posted about this product. I've been wanting to try it myself but probably not now. Thanks!

  2. I couldn't agree more. I am a 40+ something mother and I have dark circles under my eyes that I just hate. I purchased this product many months ago and I think it makes my eyes look dry, crepey and look even more tired. Let me know when you find something that really does work.

  3. ladies, i can´t tell you the number of people of have also commented on their dislike of this product! Bare Escentuals should maybe reconsider... haha

    thanks for your feedback and i will definitely be on the lookout for a better product!
