Bare Minerals Afternoon Delights Eyeliner Set Review & Swatches

Bare Minerals Afternoon Delights Eyeliner Set

Oops something got lost along the way in the making of the Bare Minerals Afternoon Delights Lasting Line Long Wearing Eyeliner Set! For Holiday 2014, Bare Minerals released two different Lasting Line Long Wearing Eyeliners set that contains five eyeliners each for $29!

Seems like a steal but…

The Bare Minerals Afternoon Delights Eyeliner Set contains five 0.012oz Lasting Line Long Wearing Eyeliners. These liners are fabulous in terms of packaging as they have a double ended tip featuring the pencil one end, a smudger on the other, and a pop out sharpener hidden away under the smudger.

Shades include:

  • Perpetual Plum
  • Immortal Emerald
  • Eternal Bronze
  • Stay Golden
  • Timeless Taupe

One thing I noticed about the set is the fact that Perpetual Plum, Eternal Bronze, and Timeless Taupe kinda sorta look all the same on my lash line. Even the pencils themselves can get confusing as the coloring on the barrels is very similarity toned.

I’m not a huge fan of this formula unfortunately. It’s quite dry, tugs during application, and doesn’t have an intense color pay off. Aside from Stay Gold, all the shades seemed to have a very dense, dry texture and produces very little in the ways of pigment when swatches on either my arm or my eye. Last year there was a selection of Round The Clock Waterproof Eyeliners in a similarity Holiday Gift Set and I do think that was considerably better than this set of liners. If you have oily lids you might appreciate the dryness but I even question that. On the upside, they do not smudge and wear quite well on my drier eyes. However, they look very faded out on my lash line as the colors simply are not intense enough. Even after going over the line I failed to get the proper color payoff off I really wanted these to have!

Not sure what happened here but the Bare Minerals Afternoon Delights Lasting Line Long Wearing Eyeliner Set formula got lost in translation somewhere along the line! I’d recommend swatching in stores prior to a purchase online as these are a little iffy in terms of texture, application, and color pay off so they did disappoint me on a large scale.

Anyone try them?

    I never like Bare Minerals’ eyeliners. I love the brand by their eyeliners are never that great.

  • Fancie

    The colors are pretty but they do look dry. If I didn’t know better I’d swear they were eyeshadows lol

    Hi Muse. Thanks for all the great holiday reviews. I have this set & love them. I have oily lids and alot of eyeliners migrate on me but these dont. the colors are not bold but I like a softer look so that works for me.

    • Isabella Muse

      my pleasure colleen! πŸ˜€ I’m glad you like them colleen! that’s all that matters πŸ˜€

    I hate these. I bought a couple with my rewards and honestly, ending up tossing them because I couldn’t find the receipt. No way are these worth the price tag-nyx is so much better for 1/3 of the price.

    In general, Bare Minerals for eye products is hit or miss for me. I find the 5 in 1 cream shadow wand very dry and chalky. I LOVED their Primetime eye primer with shadow mixed, but they’ve discontinued them. I’ve found a few at Bare Minerals outlets. I like a lot of their other products.
