The Stroke of Light eye brightener is a highlighter type product designed for reducing the look of dark circles and unsightly shadows around and underneath the eye area. I'm usually very skeptical about this kind of product since I need lots of coverage to diffuse the darkness as well as highlighting properties but too much can mean a cakey finish. It also claims to improve the general appearance of the eye area over time but I see this as more of a cosmetic product; I'm so pleased with it for this reason so that's what my review is going to be based on.
On first impressions from the product claims I thought this would be like YSL Touche Éclat but it seems to work better for me. It's very creamy but at the same time a nice medium coverage without being too much and works well as a corrector and brightener in one. I really like the spongy applicator to dab on a couple of blobs underneath each eye and buff in with the Real Techniques Contour Brush. I do wear concealer as well over the top but it's actually so effective for me that I could go without it on a normal day. I didn't want to blog about this straight away but I'm honestly so impressed! I've been using it for a couple of weeks now and it's slotted itself comfortably into my daily makeup routine and is already a firm favourite. I'll be looking to try the next shade down in the range just to see if I can use it on other problem areas or even together with this one. I love love love it and would definitely recommend to anyone suffering from dark circles or general dullness around the eyes. It seems pricey but it is slightly cheaper than the YSL version; and it provides better coverage as well as correcting and highlighting. Huge thumbs up!
