Bare Escentuals bareMinerals Big + Bright Eyeliner

After falling into the monotony of using the same brown & black eyeliners for a while now, I am venturing out to explore other colors. While adding to my options, I decided to sample a brand of eyeliner that would be new to me.

I purchased this Bare Escentuals bareMinerals Big + Bright Eyeliner in Plum over the weekend; I've fallen hard for it since. Not only is the subtle color shift very flattering for my hazel eyes, but the product itself makes application so much easier. There is a very fine pencil tip of liner which is very creamy, so it glides on effortlessly; no more sharpening either because this pencil is retractable. On the other end of the pencil is a soft brush tip for smudging & blending (a great tool for those of us who can't seem to get perfect lines; just a daily reminder that I am an artist not a makeup artist).

The only downside is that at fourteen dollars this pencil is double the cost of most pharmacy brands. Plus now that I've tried one, I want the whole lot of them (Charcoal, Chocolate, Espresso, Intense Black, & Midnight). Thus officially making Bare Escentuals & my wallet frenemies.
