Who doesn’t need a little lift now and then?  It Cosmetics Hello Bright Eyes Silk Anti-Aging Waterproof Brighteners lift and illuminate your eyes and any other area of your face that could use a little lift.  These brightening pencils are waterproof even after 8 hours, and have tons of great ingredients for your skin.

Inside the box are two brightening pencils, one matte and one pearl, plus a handy pencil sharpener.

These pencils have great stuff in them, including hydrolyzed collagen, silk proteins, and vitamins C and E.  They have ‘micro-illuminating pigments of light’ to brighten the eyes, give lips the illusion of fullness, and dimish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Let’s see what Lisa and Marcia think about these anti-aging waterproof pencils.

Lisa’s Side:

Oooooh, I like these!  These two pencils are extremely versatile, wonderful highlighters.

matte and pearl brightening pencils

I love using these on my waterline and underneath my lash line, it really opens up my eyes and makes them look brighter and younger.  I have had some real issues with allergies this fall, my eyes have been so puffy and swollen it’s ridiculous.  So I’ve turned to these magic pencils time and again to help conceal the damage the pollen has been doing to my eyes.

matte and pearl

I don’t really have a favorite between the two.  The matte shade looks extremely natural and just helps make the eyes look wider.  The pearl shade is very pretty and it gives a little more brightness to the look.

While I typically use the matte shade just on the waterline, I use the pearl shade on the waterline and along the lower lash line.  These are very handy pencils that definitely help me look far more rested than I do without them!

 Marcia’s Side:

I’ve been enjoying using these Hello Bright Eyes Silk Anti-Aging Waterproof Brighteners so much. Just picture me with Hello Lashes, Hello Bright Eyes and a giant smile on my face. I’m ready to say Hello to the world with these.

The first one of these pencils I tried was the Pearl one since I love to add just a touch of non-glittery, non-shimmery color to my browbone. My eyes are getting a little more hooded and I need more opening up and Pearl absolutely does that for me.

Matte and Pearl

As you can see by the pictures the two pencils are different. Pearl has a light peach tinge to it that translates to a subtle color once on my browbone. Plus you can add a little to your lips to make them look fuller! Either define your cupid’s bow or put it in the center of your lips to give yourself a subtle pout.

Matte is a more nude skin tone. I’ve used the matte in the inner corner of my eye as well as on my waterline. I don’t look natural with a glowy white in the inner corner, I think it accentuates the lines in my eyes but the matte shade of this pencil gives me that lighter look while being more natural. After a night like I had serving a houseful of people on Thanksgiving you can be assured that this was needed the next two days. It’s so effortless and opens up my eyes, making the whites look much brighter.

At Beauty Info Zone we think It Cosmetics are IT! These two pencils again prove to us that they can do no wrong. Hello Bright Eyes Silk Anti-Aging Waterproof Brighteners are a set you definitely need for this holiday season (and any season).
