I bought the Bare Minerals Big and Bright Eyeliner trio from Sephora ages back - either during some sale or to round up my basket total to $50 (the magic number for free shipping).  I use eyeliners way more than eyeshadows, and these are twist-up eyeliners, so that pretty much sealed the deal for me.

The set contains mini-version of the 3 Bare Minerals Big and Bright Eyeliners - Black Gold, Black Diamond, and Midnight Moon.  These eyeliners are smaller than the regular sizes, but they aren't terribly tiny either and do contain a decent amount of product in them.  These are twist-up pencils - so they can get away with no sharpening.

There's much more product in the eyeliners.  I have a long history of dropping the pencil just when I extend it to the full length, so I decided to not do that this time.  Despite all my care, though, I have already managed to snap the Black Gold eyeliner.

The trio features two black-based shades - Black Gold and Black Diamond - and a bluish black shade - Midnight Moon.  There really isn't much difference between the two blacks - Black Gold being perhaps a tad more bronzy and the Black Diamond having perhaps just a bit of a silver shimmer to it.  It's hardly noticeable, though, and I could easily mix up the two.  Here's how they look on my eyes:

The eyeliners are creamy and soft and very easy to use.  Their size also makes them convenient for travel/carrying in the bag for that quick touch-up.  What pulls them down, though, is that they never really set.  They start smudging and disappearing in about an hour on my eyes.  A primer and setting with a shadow helps a bit, but it's not much - besides I really don't want to put in that much effort on an eyeliner!!

Overall, cute packaging but falls short in terms of staying power.  I think I paid around $10 for these, and there are a whole lot of much better eyeliners available for that price or less.

  2. Thank you, Cali :D Only the dabba is nice..I also saw that (and the price) and ran and got this! Avon ones would be my favorites for a much cheaper price..I liked Midnight Moon a lot. Should take it and go looking for a similar color in some other brand which hopefully stay longer :D
