Rated 3 out of 5Â by KimiKauai Please Bring Back Underwear for Lids!
I tried the Eye Brightening Color Stick as I wanted to replace my discontinued Underwear for Lids. I was looking for something to even out the color on my lids and brow bone (which in turn brightens) and while it does work I find the stick to be hard to apply and I have no idea how to sharpen it as no sharpener is included. It just didn't look right with my medium to tanned complexion when used all over and was sticky and has an oily scent, but it may work just as a highlighter on the brow bone.
I do have a blue cream cover-up which was made for redness due to breakouts, etc.. Once applied you use a cover-up over it and it really helps. And for years I've been using it on the inside corners of my eyes to brighten them so I knew what to expect when I saw the stick is blue. But the application and texture isn't going to work for me and my tender eyelids.
The Underwear for Lids was awesome. With a smooth, matt-like, neutral beige color and easy twist applicator (like a lip balm) it provided a easy-to-apply, long-lasting, soft cream finish that evened out the color on my lids and brows. I stocked up once it was discontinued, but would love to see it come back!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by TeamOrigins Another Way to Use It
I used to work for Origins many years ago, and the way we presented this product to customers was not how it is described here. Although you can use it as an eyeliner or eye highlighter, my favorite way to use it is to apply over the entire lid and blend well. Then, when you put on your eyeshadow, the color really pops, is more true to the color of the shadow, and lasts all day. How much you put on your lid depends on you; I knew some people who colored in their whole lid very dark. I prefer to use it lightly so as to avoid stretching my delicate eye area. I love the eye-brightening color stick! Hope this helps. . .

Rated 4 out of 5Â by alumnibear Love it, but...
I used to work for Origins, so I feel like I know a number of products fairly well, especially this one b/c I use it regularly myself.
I think this is a great product, especially if you are very fair skinned like me. I have dark circles under my eyes if I don't use it, but the color is perfect on my skin tone. I also use it on my nose, to make it appear more narrow. However, my one complaint with this product, is that every time I end up getting close to the end of the pencil, it is too short to sharpen and I end up wasting the rest of it. Also, every time I get to the end, it ends up breaking off, so even if I could sharpen it, it is wasted anyways.
I love this product so much I would have given it five stars, if not for this one problem. But it really does depend on your skin tone, as to whether or not it will work well for you. It might say that its for everyone, but it really isn't...

Rated 1 out of 5Â by buffy This should come with a sharpener!!
This is a great product and I love it but now I'm at the point I need to sharpen it and I can't find a sharpener that works. For the price of $17.50 this should DEFINITELY come with its own sharpener!!! I looked on the website to see if they have one specifically for this pencil and they DON'T! I do live in a small town but after shopping on line and seeing other brands that come with their own sharpeners I will definitely try them before I can highly recommend this product. If it did have it's own sharpener I would give it 5 stars.
