Lasting Line Long-Wearing Eyeliner - null
Really, really wanted to love....
I love Bare Minerals. My holy grail foundation, skin care, lip stick, lip gloss, shadows.....but not this liner. Oh my goodness, how I wanted to love this as much as everything else. My first application was on a none primed lid. I applied the shade Forever Brandy and I was surprised that it wasn't as red as I was expecting, it's reddish-plum color that I really liked. It's very unique. It goes on very smooth and creamy and I used to tight-line and it went on beautifully . Then I closed my eyes to apply mascara. When I opened my eye, I had eyeliner over my entire lower water line!!! GACK!!! I removed everything, primed my lids, and applied the liner to the base of my lashes. Again it applied like a dream. I then applied my foundation and when I went to put on the mascara, I had liner in my inner corner, near my crease, and a little in the outer corner. I've used this liner and another shade for a month now and now matter what primer or shadow I use or how I apply it, I end up with liner on my lower lash line or even on my cheek. It's so frustrating and very disappointing. It does wash off very easily!! I won't be reaching for these again because for the price, I expect it to stay put.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE this Eyeliner!
I've been wearing nothing but Bare Minerals makeup for over ten years now. Years ago, Bare Minerals made a similar eyeliner that was discontinued. I was so disappointed but then I found this. I wear Forever Brandy, a perfect brownish-burgundy-plum color. It's easy and quick to use every time, lasts all day and washes off with soap and water. Please Bare Minerals, never stop making this!
It will last all day. At least it did for me.
I didn't like how nice and sharp it was, then after the first use it was flat and thick. It goes on light and feel nice.
I know I am going to mess up when I try and use it again. lol
I haven't used the smug side, so I can review that.
Hope the picture helps. I am also wearing Modern pop Express Yourself Lip Stick..love it
I ordered a pack of these eyeliners on cyber monday---I received 10 liners in different shades of brown, grey, black, blue and green. They are amazing! They glide on smoothly and do not rub off even after a full day of working and working out. I highly recommend them in any color---I am blonde with blue eyes so I wear the black for going out and the brown shades for everyday, depending on my eyeshadow colors. One other thing--they're waterproof (comes off with vaseline and makeup remover) so you don't have to worry about things smudging if you're stuck walking home in the rain or sweating at the gym. They also don't "bleed" onto your lower lash line if you choose to tightline. I have almost all the colors except purple, which I would love to try.
This is the best eyeliner I've found for everyday, not too bold although I guess you could make it bolder by applying more. Stays on all day, like the smudger on other end. Have black, going to order brown next.
My favorite eyeliner.
I love this eyeliner and it does last a long time. I have used this or a version of this for years from BareMinerals, however my last two orders i have noticed that it barely lasts a month, when one used to last 3 months, so i'm pretty disappointed that they are cutting the length of the stick and i'm paying the same price.
At LONG LAST!!!
I received this as a gift and figured it would be just like the last five types of liner I've tried. SURPRISE - it really is LONG LASTING! It goes on beautifully and can be left solid to form a bold look, or blended for something more subtle. I can honestly say I will be purchasing this liner as long as it is available. My next purchase will be something in a brown. :)
Disappointed in this liner
I received the Lasting Line eyeliner pencil in Endless Orchid as my bareMinerals FAB free birthday gift. Honestly, I am glad I didn't pay anything for it, because it's been a complete disappointment. Usually I use bareMineral's powder liner and brush to line my eyes because I get the best look with that, but when traveling or in a hurry, I use their Big & Bright eyeliner pencil (in Granite), so I do have some frame of reference to compare liner pencils. I believe the Big & Bright version is now discontinued, which is a shame, because I like it so much better than this Lasting Line. First of all, the Lasting Line broke the very first time I tried to use it. It gives me an okay line on my upper lid, though I wish it were darker. That could be because of the color, I guess, though other than that I think the Endless Orchid is a nice enough color. It doesn't pull my eyelid, which I like, but the line fades very quickly. My biggest problem with this liner, though, is that I cannot get a line on my lower lid at all! The Big & Bright draws just fine along my lash line, but this one doesn't show up, and even clumps in the lashes sometimes. Big disappointment. I do like the built-in sharpener and the idea of a smudging tool, but the actual smudger is better on the Big & Bright because it's more of a blender-sponge material versus the more solid rubber on the Lasting Line. Overall, a big disappointment - when I need the speed of a pencil liner, I will be sticking to my Big & Bright and once I've used that up, I'm not sure what I'll do, but you can bet I won't be buying a Lasting Line pencil.
Smooth and long lasting
This eyeliner goes on smooth and lasts all day. I also love the blending tool on the other end to get different looks.
Love the mascara it stays on for quite a while and doesn't bother my eyes like a lot of mascaras do
