Lash Enhancing Eyeliner? Buxom Lashliner from Bare Escentuals


How did I not know about this stuff? Actually, with all the lash-enhancing products out there now, how did other brands not think of this sooner? Especially since you apply them all "as you would an eyeliner".

I guess as a long-time MAC Blacktrack Fluidline fan, I've never felt the need to look elsewhere for a good black gel liner. I came across the Buxom Lashliner by Bare Escentuals on a trip to Sephora about a week ago. I had to do a double take as I glanced over the little selection of gel liners claiming to be a "Lash Enhancing & Conditioning Treatment". Sold. Seriously, why didn't I own something like this already? We all know how much I adore my black eye liner and wear it pretty regularly. Adding a lash treatment in the mix just makes good sense. And at $15 for a 2gram jar (MAC Fluidline is 3 grams, just to give you some comparison), I felt like that's reasonable for the quality ingredients and if it actually delivers. It comes in three shades, a black, brown, and a black with silver micro-glitter. I purchased Leatherette, the black shade.

So I've been using this product for a week straight, mainly looking at the actual wear and quality of the liner. Just because it hasn't been enough time to see any benefits where the lash-enhancement is concerned.
To my surprise, (Because honestly, lets face it...this stuff seems kind of too good to be true) it applied easily and has great pigmentation. And even better, sets to a smudge-proof finish. However, it does take a little longer to dry than fluidline, but that's not a problem for me since I have a habit of setting liners with black eyeshadow anyway-- even gel liners. Other than that, it's very comparable to Fluidline.

Then for the really rewarding part-- The formula contains natural ingredients and no parabens, which is always a little added bonus. It contains ingredients that actually stimulate hair growth as well as other great ingredients that support healthy lash growth and keep them conditioned.
Now I've never used any lash-enhancing products before and mine are naturally pretty thick, black, and long to begin with. Like I said, I haven't used it long enough to see real results, but I'll report back in a month :)

This is available at Sephora and most everywhere else you can purchase Bare Escentuals products. Click here to read more about the product and for shade info.

  5. hmm can't wait to see if they result in any changes, but your eyelashes are very dramatic as it is...sometimes i think you are wearing false lashes

  6. This sounds very interesting. I might give this a look tomorrow. I might have to make a list so that I don't exaggerate on buying so much makeup tomorrow.

    ^-^;;

    Thanks

  7. I've used this ever since it came out! It's a great liner, but sadly I haven't noticed a change in my lashes. Maybe it's just me? Dunno, but can't wait for your review on it!

    Thank you for all you videos, love em to death,
    T

  8. not thick and black tiffany be real.. your lashes are long but if they were thick you wouldn't be wearing falsies for more than half your looks.

  9. "if they were thick you wouldn't be wearing falsies for more than half your looks."

    did you go back and watch all of her videos to count and come up with that statistic? or did you arbitrarily make up one to be a jerk for no reason?
    i assume the latter, because in my experience watching tiffany's videos, she rarely wears false eyelashes. i'd say she wears them in less than a quarter, and by far less than half, of her videos.

  10. JSYK, it says Benefit in the title, instead of Bare Escentuals. Little confusing. :)

  18. Thanks for the review Tiffany! I've been very tempted to try this liner since I am a HUGE Bare Escentuals fan, however the one product of theirs I am not sold on is their buxom mascara. Soooo I thought maybe I wouldn't like this liner either. Glad to know it's a winner! I will be scouring my Sephora for it soon. =)

  19. Thanks for the feedback everyone :) LOL a buddy on twitter let me know I had said it was by Benefit in the title by accident! OOPS! Fixed it-- :) No biggie though. It's obviously by Bare Escentuals as I stated within the first few sentences so I don't think many people even noticed.
    For the person that seems confused by my eyelashes and thinks I wear false ones-- You can obviously tell when someone is wearing false lashes. Also, watch my videos and you'll see I never use them 90% of the time. There are lots of people out there like me with longer thicker lashes. :) People that know me in real life always laugh when they see people saying I wear false lashes. And if that annoys you enough to comment rudely to me and others on here, why do you bother to post? haha :) I'll never understand the mind of a hater.

    Just an fyi-- I'll definitely review this on the lash-enhancing effects after about a full month of use. I'm trying to use it everyday until then.
    Thanks for the support guys! Talk to you all soon-

  26. Just wanted to say that these liners (and most of the Bare Escentuals Buxom Line) is exclusive to Sephora.

    I agree that this liner is awesome! I have it in Sequins and it is my go to liner. I am a big Bare Escentuals fan and I am so glad that they have come out with a gel liner!

  33. I just have to stick up for Tiffany here...there are people with naturally gorgeous eyelashes, my niece is one of them - she's only 7 and has the darkest, thickest lashes I've ever seen (better than mine when I DO have falsies on!!) - her teachers always ask her if she has mascara on.
