Any good dupes for benefit eye bright? I'm almost out and with baby #2 almost here can't afford to splurge on more 😭
First of all, congrats mama! Don’t forget to take a little time for yourself whenever you can! You’ll definitely be able to find some inexpensive alternatives to Benefit Eye Bright, so no worries!
Benefit Eye Bright ($20)* is a creamy pencil used to conceal darkness around the eyes and add highlight to the brow, lid, and under eye to create the appearance of rest. Definitely an important product for mothers, I’d say! While I’ve found quite a few replacements, not all of them have the same pink tone - most are more nude, but they do the same job and do it well.
The closest dupe:
Sephora Collection Brow Enhancer in #01 Matte Light Pink ($12) is the most spot-on match that I know of. It’s not quite as creamy as the Benefit one at first, but it blends beautifully and the color is perfect. It’s a slightly chubby pencil, just like Eye Bright, and has great staying power so it won’t crease.
My #1 recommendation:
NYX Wonder Pencil ($4.50) is my top recommendation to your for what you’re using the product for. The color itself isn’t the same, because these are more of a flesh-toned nude than pink, and these are slim pencils unlike the larger size of Eye Bright, but I’ve used these and I like them even better than the expensive Benefit one. You can do more with these pencils, such as concealing, cleaning up rough edges, creating an ombre lip, brightening the waterline… I could go on. They’re very inexpensive and they’re still nice and creamy and easy to blend. They also come in different colors for different skin tones.
I also like:
Milani Brow & Eye Highlight ($6) In this pencil you get two colors in one! One is a glowy pink with a hint of shimmer, and the other is a matte nude. The texture and size is very similar to Benefit Eye Bright, too!
NYX Eyebrow Push-Up Bra ($10) The pink highlight side of this double ended pencil is really close to Eye Bright, and it comes with a brow filling pencil on one side, which could either be a good or a bad thing!
I really hope that you find something that you like! And good luck!
