BareMinerals Big, Bright, & Brilliant Trio of Mini Eyeliners Review

BareMinerals Big, Bright, & Brilliant Trio of Mini Eyeliners
Grade: B+
Purchase Place: Sephora
Purchase Price: $10.00
Colors: Black Diamond (black with silver glitter), Black Gold (black with gold glitter), and Midnight Moon (dark navy with blue shimmer)
Plus: these are preservative free!
FYI: I didn't do swatches because the liners are average everyday colors with glitter. I didn't see a need to do swatches but if anyone is interested in them I will post some.

This photo got a little blurry on me but you can still get the general item of what the point looks like.

This is how much liner you get in each one, it's completely rolled up. You can also see a little bit of the silver glitter in this liner as well. Color Shown: Black Diamond

When I saw these I knew I had to have them and couldn't wait to give them a try since I've never tried bareMinerals liners. I've used these for a couple of days now and while they are really just an average everyday liner with glitter I do like them. The thing I think I like the most about them is that I can get a very thin precise line on my eye especially my bottom lid. I find that many liners I apply leave a rather thick heavy line which is ok some days but I would rather have a nice thin line most days that defines my eyes just enough without overdoing it, and these give me that. The way they are sharpened is just perfect for a hint of definition. Another great thing about these is they they apply smoothly, no tugging no pain and they are smudgeable. These are also twist up liners so they do not require sharpening, when you want more liner simply twist up from the top and there you go. Bare Minerals claim that these liners will make the whites of your eyes appear whiter and brighter. The last few days I've wore the liners I didn't really see where my eyes appeared any whiter or brighter. BareMinerals also makes the claim that these have a little light reflective pearl in them, and it must be a very little bit of light reflective pearl because when I swatch them as well as when i use them I don't notice any light reflective pearl effect from the liners. What I did notice is that they wore well, they lasted a long time and I'm very pleased with how long they staid on and I didn't have any smudging or running of the liner during the day it staid put. I will say I don't ever put liner on my waterline because to me that just screams eye infection, so I can't really say how they would wear when applied to that part of the eye. Given that the liners do have glitter in them I wouldn't recommend putting them on the waterline. When I do apply them given that i do just make a very thin line I don't tend to notice any of the glitter,I never see it. If some of you prefer thicker lines I'm sure the glitter would be more noticeable. If you are not really a glitter person you may still enjoy these especially if you are like me and like a more natural looking line. In terms of the glitter it's not a chunky glitter it's very small pieces of glitter and there is more liner color than glitter, when swatching these I didn't notice a ton of glitter in these, it's there but it's not like a disco ball or anything. Also another wonderful thing about these liners is that they didn't cause my any eye irritation or any problems at all.  Overall it's a good deal for three liners and I really do love the liners, I'm happy I bought these.
