Big, bright and brilliant - eye liners from bareMinerals

Good evening!
Firstly, a quick hello to both old and new followers, we are thrilled to now have over 100 followers! Hello to you all!
Today I am going to talk about my new eyeliners I purchased at the Vitality show.
Now as you probably know, we are both big fans of bareMinerals, and I have been using their eyeliner for a few years. When I saw this fab collection of three mini eyeliners I just had to have it!

The three colours that came in the pack were midnight moon, which is a bluey colour, black gold, which is a lighter black with a very subtle hint of gold and black diamond, which is a striking black. See below for swatches.

I really like bareMinerals eyeliners. They are easy to apply as they glide straight on to either the bottom or top of the eye, depending on where you like to wear eyeliner. They really show off the eye colour, bringing out the whites of the eye. The colours have light reflective pearl which really glistens when it catches the light, the pictures really don't do the colours justice.

I have very sensitive eyes, and have often had to throw away eyeliners after one use because they have caused irritation, but with the preservative free formula of bareMinerals, I can happily wear these all day with no irritation.

My personal favourite is the midnight blue, as it really picks out the colours of my eyes.

I have tried to capture a better idea of the colour on the two pictures below, where I am wearing midnight blue:

Midnight blue is now my everyday wear eyeliner, and the other two are perfect for throwing into my make-up bag for nights out as they are handbag size.

I bought this set for £14, I have just tried looking for it online, and I cannot find it in stock anywhere, so it may have been a show only item.

What eyeliner do you use, and is it worth me checking out? Have you used  bareMinerals before and what did you think? Let us know by leaving a comment below or on twitter you can find us tweeting as @beautyu
