THE PRODUCT: I am reviewing this liner shadow from bareMinerals which is a brand I have been using a lot recently due to treating myself to a few of their products. I was actually looking for a gel liner but they don’t actually do this but the lady at the bareMinerals counter showed me this product instead and it looked impressive and very easy to apply when showing it to me. The liner does come in various shades although I purchased the ‘Soft Black’ shade. As this liner is a powder you can apply it dry to create a gorgeous Smokey look or you can apply it wet to create bolder lines and to make the colour look more intense. The lady at the counter actually showed me how to wear this product wet so this is how I first started off using the product at first.
PRICE/AVAILABILTY: I purchased this from the bareMinerals counter in my local Boots store for £14.00 and I also purchase a brush to go with it as well so I could apply the product easily.
USING THE PRODUCT: When using the product for the first time you will need to remove the found sticker on the inside of the pot which is covering the holes in the tray. Simply peel this off and this reveals 4 square holes in which the powder dispenses out of. Tap a little powder out into the lid and then spray a little water into the lid. Mix together using your brush and then apply it. You do only need to use a little water as if you use too much you may find it a little harder to apply and it does tend to water the colour down a little as well. In terms of application I found that the product is actually quite easy to apply, and a lot easier than apply a gel liner as you can apply it in a quick line very close to the lash line. Of course you can build this up a little to make it slightly thicker for a more intense look if you wish.
RESULTS: The liner looks great once applied and it really makes a difference to my eyes. I have used the liner applied straight to my eyelids or on top of eye shadow as well and the eyeliner applies perfectly each time. I was glad that the eyeliner lasted all day and didn’t start to wear off at any point and it didn’t smudge during the day either. The product was very kind to my eyes as well. This product also looks great dry to create a Smokey look which is perfect for an evening look. You can build up the colour as much as you like as well. At the end of the day the product was easily remove using make-up remover or a facial cleansing wipe.
