Benefit Eye Bright Instant Eye Brightener Pencil 1.4g -
currently £14 available from a range of places including Boots
This wonderful eye pencil is lovely and wide with a creamy filling. The pencil is very pale pink, and it will help you to appear as though you have brighter eyes.
The eye bright pencil will help to eradicate shadows in the inside corner of you eye, and according to the information on the Benefit website using it on the outside corner of your eyes will make you look wide awake, and radiant.
The eye bright should be applied after applying all of your other make up, and for best results it should not be blended in completely - it's the little bit that linger that helps you appear brighter eyed. Around the inner corner of you eye it can take a few strokes to lighten the shadows, and a light line over the outside corner of your eye is usually sufficient to make you appear more awake (or less hung over)...
I'm a massive fan of this product - it works wonders, and is a really quick fix when you are feeling less than great in the morning. It does perk up your eye area, and does make me appear less tired. It does need to be reapplied every few hours or so. When applying it to your eye area it is important to not get it on your eyelashes as it looks a bit gunky, and it can be a pain to get rid of (especially if your not at home with cotton buds handy)...
The product is wider than a 'normal' eye pencil, and it can be difficult to find a pencil sharpener for it - so when you do keep it safe. I'm always a fan of keeping my eye pencils sharp, as I used to have terrible vision and sharpness made eye liner easier - this is a habit I feel to be best practice with this pencil as it helps avoid eye lash gunking.
The product is £14 but it does last for a very long time (if you find it cheaper elsewhere let me know!!!!) It really does do what you expect of it, and I highly recommend it to all.
It's difficult to find a sharpener for it
Summary: It's awesome
