Review It: Benefit Eye Bright

by Angela (Oh She Glows) on December 3, 2008

Morning everyone!

For some reason I could not sleep well last night. It was one of those nights where everything was distracting me- from the alarm clock light, to Sketchie crawling over us, to Eric’s tossing and turning. I am one of those people where if I can’t sleep I start to get agitated, making me less likely to fall asleep!

I must have been dreaming about my new treadmill that is set to arrive this afternoon! :D

Luckily I could sleep in a bit this morning. However, the tiredness was showing in my face!

I thought this was a great time to do a Beauty Product Review for Benefit Eye Bright. It is something I have had in my collection for a year or so now and it really does a good job to brighten up the inner corners of the eye. Mine tend to get dark when I haven’t had a full night’s sleep!




You simple take the ‘crayon‘ and colour the inner corners of the eyes:


You can also use the crayon:

  • To emphasize the bow of your lips (V-shape)
  • To ‘fill in’ wrinkles (just color in a crease and the highlight will make the wrinkle disappear)
  • To line the bottom lash line and make the eyes look huge!

However, do not use to cover a pimple as the shimmer will act to emphasize the problem area!

I rate this product a 4/5

I would give it a 5/5 but I find that it has a tendency to emphasize lines around my inner corner of the eyes. It still does way more good than not!


Well, I am off to eat and then jet set to work!

Have a GREAT humpday everyone!

Wow! I think I like this product. I do the same thing with a white/beige colored eyeshadow, but this seems much easier.

I love Eye Bright! My favorite way to use it is to line my lower inner eyelid. Totally brightens my eyes!

that looks great! i use cliniques all about eyes.. it seems to have helped with my dark circles and the fine lines that are developing under there!!!

This may sound weird, but whenever I have a hard time falling asleep I force myself to breathe slowly and deeply and I don’t let my mind think about anything but a shape and a color. My focus is a sapphire circle. I chose a circle because it has no edges and the color of sapphire makes me feel calm. If you just focus on something like this long enough you will drift off to sleep. I swear it’s not crazy! :)

I have never used this before, I think it would be funny if someone used it to cover up a blemish…lol have fun with the new Tredmill!

Hi! I just wanted to say how much I love your blog! I just found it today and spent (too much of) my afternoon at work reading it from the beginning.

You are really an inspiration! Hopefully I’ll get back on the wagon soon- I’m lacking the motivation lately, but I REALLY need to get on track.

Best Wishes!
