Bare Escentuals Buxom Insider Eyeliner - Onyx

 What's so great about the buxom insider eyeliner is the fact that it's formulated for your waterline/tight line therefore you know 100% that it's safe to use in that area.   It comes in 10 gorgeous shades and retails for $14 US & $18 CND.  I have mixed feelings about this eye liner; sometimes i love it, but sometimes i hate it.  Find out why below.

breaking down...the packaging
The packaging is very sleek and stylish, which i love. It's a twisty eyeliner and the tip pops out to reveal a built in sharpener. The twisty part does not get stuck and it's very easy to twist it up and down. I've had this since December 26, and it still hasn't run out...and i use it every single day.  packaging receives 5/5.

breaking down...the product
On to the actual is a soft liner, so applying it doesn't take a lot of effort. With one swift sweep it delivers a very pigmented effortless line. Unlike most eyeliners, you do not have to tug at your waterline in order to get the product to actually show up. As well, it's very smudgable. So that get's a 5/5

 Is it long wear as it claims?
 No, that's not correct. I wear this on just my tightline daily, and i notice that the moment i blink product is transferred to my waterline. By the end of my 8 hour day it is completely gone. It isn't all over my face or anything, it's just gone. As in, i legitimately have no more eyeliner on my tightline (yes, even the waterline transfer is gone). Now, i don't have oily lids or an overly watery waterline/tightline so in my opinion, that's just inexcusable. Lasting power rates 1/5.

Do i regret this purchase? Absolutely not. I think that this is worth every penny. It is an amazing product, just remember to bring it and a compact when you go out.
All in all, i rate this 3.5 because although the pigmentation and everything is fantastic and all around it's an amazing product the lasting power sucks, and i don't have time to keep reapplying it throughout my busy day.
