Bare Minerals Big and Bright Eyeliner: Black Gold

Bare Minerals Big Bright Eyeliner delivers the look of larger, naturally brilliant eyes by visually enhancing the whites of eyes, so eyes look whiter and brighter.  The velvety formula glides on easily and delivers an unparalleled saturation of color with an infusion of conditioning botanical extracts, antioxidants, and 100% pure Bare Minerals.

I got a small trio set a couple of days back to round up my Sephora order, and Black Gold is the one I am trying from the lot.

I wanted to post the entire set, since it's just 3 small liners, but with this week being all rainy and cloudy, I just couldn't get any decent photos.  It's just this one for today :D  Anyhow, Big and Bright Eyeliner in Black Gold is a regular black twist-up eyeliner with some sparkles thrown in.

Bare Minerals Big and Bright Eyeliner in Black Gold - Likes/Dislikes

  • What I like about it:  The texture is smooth and the sparkles don't feel gritty.  It glides on easily.  It isn't very pigmented, and if you are looking for an alternative to the a jet black eyeliner, you might find this a better/subtler option.
  • What I absolutely hate about it:  It really doesn't stay on much.  While it doesn't leave raccoon eyes, it does transfer slightly to the crease and mostly just fades away in about an hour or two depending on how hot/humid it is.
I took this photo for some other post (which didn't really work out :P), so here's how Bare Minerals Big and Bright Eyeliner in Black Gold looks on my eyes.

I got this as part of a set of 3 Bare Minerals Big and Bright eyeliner pencils - retailing for around $10.  I haven't yet used the other two liners from that set, but I am not impressed enough with these to bother repurchasing.  Have you tried the Bare Minerals Big and Bright eyeliner pencils - liked them?

    1. A couple of hours would be giving it too much credit :( It didn't make a mess around my eye, though, and I am really thankful for that - just disappears quietly :D :D The gloss is an old Chanel one I dug out..is my favorite :D

  3. Rads, you can try setting it with transparent powder (and use an eyeshadow primer too).. but another thing this type of smudgy liners are good for is the power smoky eye. Smudge this all over your lids, pat with your finger to blend and then use a brush to blend the edges and finally pat your favourite eyeshadow ontop of it, concentrating the color towards the upper lashline.

    1. That's just what I do with it..smudge it and use it as a sort-of base for a shadow :D :D :D

      It's just that I don't think it's necessary to spend the $10 for these. ELF does an equally good if not better job at $1. Though, Bare Minerals feels safer :P :P :D
