Phrases Chosen: great brightener/highlighter
I have noticed people talking about "coverage" and the lack thereof. This product is NOT a concealer. The powder concealer or the "stroke of light" will help tone dark dark circles. This product is FABULOUS. for brightening the inner eye area, brow bone, couple spots on the forehead, and especially top of cheekbones which can be hard to do with a lot of products. I like this product for winter, because when I use all powder substances my face dries out and makes me look older than I am. I like that BE is starting to have more liquid or semi-liquid options. Per the dispenser... you have to watch the product come up the tube when you first use it. When it gets close to the brush, start clicking slower, then when it starts flowing out, from then on, ONLY click it 1-2 times at a time. Dab it along the area you want to high light, and then rub it in with your fingertips... it will blend pretty well the other make-up you have on. This product's packaging CAN be tricky to use, and it does not conceal dark spots. BUT this product it not a concealer, so people who have that complaint have bought the wrong product. If you go into a boutique, the workers there will tell you that the big difference in stroke of light and well rested is that well rested brightens the complexion but doesn't conceal. I like the well rested because it brightens without being sparkly- it looks more natural. The powder can be harder to blend sometimes and can sink into wrinkles/dry spots/ fine lines very easy. Just make sure you are buying this product for its intended purpose and you'll love it.

What is the difference between Well-Rested and Stroke of Light
The descriptions for the Well-Rested Face and Eye Brightener and the Stroke of Light Eye Brightener are nearly identical, and these are both new products. Can you please explain the difference between the two? Thank you very much.
Stroke of light functions as a concealer and well rested is a brightener/highligher only. Well rested is not meant to conceal. I didn't want to admit it at first like one of the ladies at the boutique told me, but you may need both. The well rested is amazing and doesn't sink into any lines you may have, the stroke of light is really only meant for where a dark circle may be, DON'T put it too close to the under eye area and DON'T put it near any laugh lines near the eyes. The well rested it great for inner eyes, brow bone, and especially cheek bones. I think the well rested is the more important product, and you could use a lot of other concealers for any dark circles... I haven't found anything like the new liquid well-rested as far as brightening and highlighting.
