BareMinerals’ Big and Bright eyeliner in Sage

I really had hopes for this color. Unfortunately, there isn't enough olive, and there's too much blackening. The end result is sparse gilded-olive glitter and a little bit of green eyeliner over an uneven sooty undercoat.

This liner is difficult to apply. This was the case with most of the Big & Bright liners; but this one is especially difficult. I could not get an even line or a smooth swatch unless I put down a layer, waited five minutes, and then put down another layer. (I am just not that patient.) It would have been a lovely, very complementary shade for my eyes…had it applied nicely, and had the green taken precedence over the blackening.
