Not as great as I had hoped

I was looking for a long-lasting eyeliner, since all the other brands I've tried disappear in a couple of hours. Loved the functionality of this one, so I bought the Infinite Sage and found that it doesn't go on dark enough to even see. I have tried putting several layers of it, but what I found works is putting it on top of another (darker) color. Shouldn't have to do that.

Needs to last longer, need AUBURN!

Thought I would love this product. It does have a really nice, fine point to shape your brows well, but it's very delicate and breaks easily. However, even if it didn't break, it doesn't last anywhere as long as drug store brow pencils. Worst of all, there is no auburn, so my brows don't really go with my natural color hair! That's the most disappointing part. I will probably go back to my drug store brand.

I love this mascara

This is the best mascara I've ever used. I rarely use mascara because I have very sensitive eyes and this is the only mascara that doesn't irritate them. It's so good that I forget that I have it on. And it doesn't run either. Very happy!

I was lucky enough to receive a sample of this mascara for my birthday. It makes my lashes really thick and pretty. But best of all, it's the first mascara I've ever used that didn't irritate my eyes. I wore it with trepidation to my 50th high school reunion--I was worried that I'd be rubbing my eyes all night. Didn't happen! I even forgot I had it on--never happened before! And it didn't run or smear all night, in spite of the heat, humidity, and dancing. Love it!

I was blown away by this mascara. I received it as a free birthday sample and figured it would be like all the others...wrong! All the others, including the brands that tout being hypoallergenic, irritate my eyes. This one doesn't. I wore it to my 50th high school reunion, half expecting to be rubbing my eyes all night. I didn't. I actually forgot I had it on, which was awesome. It may not be waterproof, but it didn't run at all. Because of my past experience, I rarely wore mascara, but now it's my new and only mascara from now on and I will start wearing mascara on a regular basis. Love it!

Love the product and the brush

Phrases Chosen: great coverage
When I bought Ready SPF 20 foundation, it was the first time I ever bought anything from bareMinerals. I am very impressed with both the product and the brush. My only issue is the color. I was color matched by a boutique rep and bought the medium beige. One shade lighter was too light--made me look ghostly, but this shade is just a touch yellow--would love something in between. It covers all the spots and unevenness on my face, which is wonderful. It's the best I've looked in years--my husband really noticed the difference. There are two things, though, that I'm looking to improve: my pores are a little more obvious with it, and I would really love to get a more dewy look, so I'm going to look into some of the products that say they will enhance that. Over all, I'm very happy with the product.

I am 64 yrs. old and my lids are getting droopy especially if my liner is a dryer type , does this liner go on creamy and smooth?
I don't know if I should use moisturizer prior to using the liner.
I do find this liner pretty creamy. Go into the store and try it. I'm 67. The only thing I found is that the sage color isn't very visible unless you layer it on top of a darker color. The best way to know is to try it.

Are your products nonallergenic?
Many makeup products irritate my skin and eyes. I have used your loose powder and like it very much. But are your eye makeup products nonallergenic?
See my review. This is the first and only mascara I have found that did not irritate my eyes. I've tried Clinique, Almay, and others that tout being hypoallergenic and this is the only one that I actually forgot I had on.
