Beauty Review: VS PRO Light FX Eye-brightening Pen

In front of the camera. On the runway and off, VS PRO keeps our Supermodels photo-ready.

The magic of makeup. It’s the secret behind every flawless close-up and dazzling turn on the runway. Now the secrets are yours with VS PRO. Inspired by the artistry and ingenuity of the world's top makeup artists, we've taken their professional tricks and techniques and translated them into easy-to-use products anyone can master. Exclusively at Victoria's Secret.

This amazing highlighter—indispensible to all of our pros—is like beauty sleep in a pen. Advanced optical diffusers pair with luminous Diamond Powder to lighten and brighten the look of dark shadows while reducing the appearance of fine lines. Instant gorgeous for any close-up.

BACKSTAGE BEAUTY SECRETS: For the ultimate, bright-eyed Supermodel sparkle, apply Light FX Eye-brightening Pen around entire eye area, from under eye to browbone, inner corner to outer corner. Blend well, then apply eye makeup as usual.

I use a lot of brightening pens and concealers because like so many I have horrible under eye circles.  I tend to not sleep, ever, so I need as much help hiding my under eye circles as possible.  And I have to say, for the most part I really like this one!

Let me start with the pros of this pen.  It is easy peasy to use!  Seriously it is idiot proof.  I love the reflector properties in it as well.  I found that it is perfect as a highlighter on your cheek bone as well.  So it is very versatile.  A little bit of this product goes a long way!  And because it goes a long way you won't need to replace it right away!  Money saving is always important!

I also love the brush that helps you apply a even layer.  It helps to use your fingertip to really blend it well.  Make sure you put a primer under it, it will make a world of difference.

Now for the downside....

As you can see by picture 2 it can be incredibly messy.  I have used this particular pen twice and this is what it looks like.  So that is a issue for me.  Also it doesn't last as long as some I have used in the past.  I would say about 6 to 8 hours max.  You will need to reapply if you want to go out at night.  But then again, what girl doesn't reapply before she goes out?

If you have deep lines under your eyes, it will be noticeable.  But that holds true of almost every under eye treatment I have ever seen.

All in all, I give it a solid 3.75 beauty lipsticks!

You can purchase it at Victoria's Secret:
