After receiving this Bare Minerals metallic eyeliner in the Supernova gold color as a gift, I was hesitant to try it out. When I do wear make-up, which is not that often, I like it to be neutrally understated. This gold color is far from that. On my first attempt, I felt like a Cleopatra wanna-be and couldn't remove it fast enough. I tried again, thinking perhaps I had just made the lines a bit too thick. However, because this is a pencil it is really difficult to obtain a thin like, even when sharpened into a fine point. The pencil is so soft that it wears down quickly, so you have to constantly sharpen it to maintain the point. Once I finally got the line to the width I had in mind, the color still wasn't quite right with my complexion. I ended up adding this particular eyeliner to my collection of costume make-up.

All that said, there are some positive aspects about this product. The pencil's texture is extremely smooth and glides right on with no pulling or tugging at your eyelid. It's light, not heavy or flaky. All of this makes for easy application, and it's great to use for dramatic looks such as extended lines for a sexy "cat's eye" appearance.
