Liner Shadow - null
Perfect but Messy!
I've been using this eyeshadow/liner for almost 4 years and I love it. All you have to do is add some water, grab an angle brush, and it goes on well and stays on all day. I will be using it forever, the only thing is when you open it, IT GETS EVERYWHERE! I usually have to open it up on top of a paper towel because if I don't, it gets all over my fingers and the table and it doesn't come off except with makeup remover! That is the only thing I don't like about it. If you're thinking about buying it, do it, just have a good makeup remover and a paper towel near you when you open it up.
Create any number of looks with the Liner Shadow!
I have this product in several shades. What I like most about it is its versatility. I can create a soft, natural look or a more bold, sassy look just by the way I apply it (dry or wet). Very easy to layer color if you want a heavier or smokey eye look. The only reason why I did not give it five hearts is because it can be a little messy sometimes.
Black Ruby - my new best friend
I absolutely love Black Ruby. Not only is it a great liner, but I have mixed it with a soft light shadow and used it in my crease for a great smoky eye. I have blue eyes and it just makes them pop! Its got just enough shimmer to glam up your eye. It stays put, what's not to love.
I have these in Black Ruby and Sugar Plum -- both are fantastic for setting off green eyes. I mix it with a dot of shadow liner, tap the brush to make sure there's no loose fallout, and I find it very easy to apply. I use an angled eyeliner brush, and I can do a thin line or thick. I love the colors -- they are really "there" and don't fade. Best of all, it stays put all day. This is better than any pencil I've tried, and better than liquid liner. In the future it would be nice to have in cake formula for travel, but I highly recommend liner shadow as is.
Dragonfly - BEAUTIFUL
I received a sample of the Dragonfly because I wasn't sure if I would like the color or not. It is a BEAUTIFUL color. The color shown on the web site doesn't do it justice. If you have ever seen a real dragonfly in bright sunlight, this is the exact same color. It is a deep sapphire color with tiny sparkles of other colors. I use it wet as a liner and then also brush it on my lashes after using the Flawless Definition Volumizing Mascara. Next week when I get to the Boutique that my sister-in-law works at, this is going to be at the top of my list. Thank you Bare Minerals for such a awesome color!
Surprisingly versatile and long lasting
I had been alternating btw a liquid liner (Stila) and a gel liner (Mac) when I bought this. The other two products worked well, but one ran out very quickly (or dried up) and the other was drying up.
The beauty of this little jar of powder is that it won't ever dry out. One of the girls at a boutique showed me a nifty trick: Mix a bit of eye shadow primer with a tiny bit of this liner/shadow powder and the liner will stay on forever.
And I swear: It works as she said.
Using primer to mix the product, the liner cannot be easily rubbed off or washed off (it really stays on). One has to use an eye makeup remover. And one must wash the brush immediately (and maybe with special cleanser).
Alternatively one can also just use a drop of water (as suggested) to mix with the powder--it applies just as smoothly and stays on quiet long as well. The brush washes clean just as easily.
I can't imagine my life without this product.
I decided to purchase this on a whim and I am SO GLAD I did. This little jar has lasted me forever (over a year) even with daily use. I use coffee bean and it is the perfect shade. I use it as a brow liner as well as an eyeliner and it gives me the most amazing smokey look. I find it much easier to apply and way more forgiving than liquid or pencil liners. This product is a MUST HAVE. I want everyone to experience the absolute perfection that is this product. I mean really guys, over a year's worth of eyeliner and brow liner for $14?
I am in search of a replacement but unfortunately it looks like I can only get it online now. Ulta has stopped selling it and the boutiques I have visited do not carry it. PLEASE DO NOT GET RID OF THIS PRODUCT!!
Versitle & Great Color
I just bought my first Liner Shadow in Patio Party. It is a beautiful, soft black with a subtle gold flake. Not too glittery. (But it's not a color available on the website.) I put it on dry in the morning for a smugy line. I add a bold line, using it wet, before I go out for the evening. It's not quite as blendable as the other shadows, but is still blendable enough to get a great sheer look.
Soft Black Liner
I use this as a wet liner, dry liner, eye shadow and a brow liner! It is now no longer available at the Ulta Store, they tried to steer me to another brand, but I thought I would check here online first. So glad I did!
Website Color Representation
First, I love the powder eyeliners. Love that I can use it dry or wet, a little or a lot. However, the colors online don't match the colors in person. I suggest to anyone looking to buy a particular eye liner or eye shadow, to go to the store to look at the colors in person.
I loved the 'Turquoise Sea' eyeliner color online. Description reads, 'a green marble shade'. The online description and color really does look like a green marble color, but when I went to the store it looked more like a blue turquoise color like the sea. The color matched its name more than its description. It was not at all a green marble shade, I'd say its blue/green.
In result, I ended up looking at other colors that resembled the green shade I wanted. Good thing I didn't buy the Turquoise Sea online, because I would've been disappointed. Nothing disappoints me more than buying things online (& paying for shipment), waiting for it to arrive (time consuming), and its not what I wanted.
