One of the only reasons I would use a gel/creme liner again is this product.

I had given up on gels as they dry up very fast, look to heavy/thick in formula, flake off and are too much of a hassle.

Standard routine was tight line with laura merciers' cake liner, trish mcevoy eye definer, or a MAC powerpoint, then liquid liner on top, smooth and soften the liquid with …

Not the perfection that was brownie pink but lacks the browner/Orangier base that might make brownie pink too heavy for some. On me this is a soft pink,mauve in a beige base, can pull too much ash tone with my warm ruddy skin, the pink lifts it and makes it more youthful or fresh than some deeper nudes can achieve. If you are very warm or ruddy I suggest trying this out first as it may be too …Read more

Love love love. Please do not ever DC. The finest brush tip, thin but not watery formula, and black, not harsh black, but soft black. Not waterproof but not vulgar gloomy vinyl thick, so absolutely perfect. Would repurchase a thousand times over.

Not brightening on me, but dark enough to cover circles and tone down redness. I have this in biscuit, which is a touch too yellowy but works in the tiniest smidge in the deepest area of my dark circles and doesn't require another shade of product to blend over the rest of my face. Chanel and Armani are HG concealers but require more blending into the rest of my coloring. I break out easily …Read more

Eyeliner - Laura Mercier - Special Brown

Good deep brown with more of an ashy leaning neutral base than red. Not as green based as BB's Espresso e/s, this is closer to a true neutral and not as dark. Does not always apply as smoothly as I'd like, so I have to resharpen and sometimes warm it up with a hairdryer or pass through a flame. Hard enough to hold a crisp point and apply with said fine point without wearing down too …Read more

Eyeliner junkie here, have been using liquids for 20 yrs now and found the quality or brush style liners to have dramatically fallen, as well as for brush style liquids to gone the way of the dodo bird. That said, this product is like a flash back to my younger days of simplistic joy with *just* a liquid liner. Easy to apply, brush is neither too thick nor too flimsy (most companies seem to load …Read more

My dearest, fickle Bobbi,

*sigh* It has been some time since I've sung the praises of your inspirations, but I had to put this out there, should anyone at BB be listening...


BB gels(the old ones in the frosted glass jars) were nothing short of perfection. Soft yet pliable, thick but smooth. One dab of a brush and it covered the top lash line perfectly with enough …

I am extremely pleased with this and this is something I go to for daily use simply for 1) how natural looking the overall effect is, and 2) how easy to layer up and blend. I'm not a huge fan of most base makeup and I find the heavier coverage items, while impressive when used correctly, take too much time and fussing to get right for daily use. This is pretty much like a brightening …Read more

This blush is gorgeous. Pinky-beige flesh toned shade with shimmer. I can't say it lasts all day without oxidizing, but that's my own skin issue and not the blush. You get a huge amount for the price so I cannot see griping about price. Subtle enough shimmer that the effect is not flattening but nothing you can see from close up. I currently use their luminous foundation shade 5.75 and …Read more

This review is for beige 110, which is a nude beige tone with just enough pink to keep me looking alive but still very much in beigey nude territory. Enough color to wear alone with a neutral face but also not so much it can't help carry off a stronger eye. I love the formula. Truly longer wearing without being thick and tacky, has a soft-shine finish, not a weighty matte shade. Looks the …Read more
