Tricia Sawyer’s Eye Slept is a genius product and a must-have for anyone (that’s basically everyone) who doesn’t get enough shut-eye. I recently tried the cream as I was trudging along, oblivious to how exhausted I truly was, and then (GASP!) I caught my reflection in a window and was horrified at my tired, dull eyes. I booked it to my nearest Sephora and alas, I found and used (then later purchased) the Tricia Sawyer Eye Slept… Instant Gratification – lighter, brighter, happier eyes!
A word (or several…) from the company:
“Eye Slept is an instant good night’s sleep in a jar. Use under or over makeup anytime of the day. It is an instant pick-me-up of lightness and brightness for looking like you slept, even when you didn’t. Its creamy consistency is easily absorbed into the necessary areas using your fingers or a brush. Remember, a little goes a long way!”
This product is not a concealer, or even a primer, it is a cream (that brightens)… thus you want to be careful not to use too much (or you may end up a shiny white clown-eyed gal). But other then getting the gist of how much and how to apply (I pat onto the skin for a more dewy effect), this brightener is pretty much idiot proofed!!! I love controlling the application process with my fingers… it gives the product an added allure!
So, for anyone who needs to fake a couple of sleepy-time hours, this product is a literally a miracle cream! Eyes that POP are so much more glamorous…

On another note, the Cargo Eyelighter just isn’t a very realistic eye brightening product. It’s a a double-sided powder – one side white, the other gold. But the powder goes on way too strong and the white side reminded me of clown eyes. The gold worked fine as a highlighter for lash line, but I have Anastasia’s highlighter – and it’s a cream pencil – much easier to blend. Unfortunately, Cargo’s Eyelighter is a bust!
