The perfect holiday gift for the liner lover in your life!
I’m speaking the truth when I can safely say I think we ALL know a gal in our life who is a slave to eyeliner. It’s the one thing they can’t leave their house without. It is a must-have in their daily eye makeup routine. They hoard it in their purse like a security blanket. It’s just one of those makeup items that a lot of ladies need in their lives. Well guess what? I’m one of them too. No shame here!
I think it was meant to be that I got to review both of bareMinerals’ limited edition, holiday eyeliner sets – Afternoon Delights and I Love The Nightlife ($29 each). If you know someone who has an eyeliner obsession – or is even just new to makeup – these make amazing gifts.
And here comes the genius part: the two sets are curated depending on lifestyle. I find this to be very smart because sometimes with gift sets, you can’t help but pass on some colors. I really do think that this helps to streamline things even more, to hopefully get the most use out of each set as possible.
Got a friend or relative who only wears neutral eyeliners and “safe” colors? Afternoon Delights is the one to get – an assortment of browns with some unexpected yet wearable gold and green.

Looking for a gift for a more dramatic makeup lover or that party girl that you picked for Secret Santa? The I Love The Nightlife set has your traditional black but also a fun splash of blue and silver for a bit of experimentation.

No matter which of these sets you choose, there is bound to be something in there that they will absolutely love. The following may be bad news to some. These eyeliners are not the boldest in pigmentation so do not expect an extremely dark line at first swatch.
They make great washes of color and the great thing is that you can build on color and use the smudger on the other end to smoke out. The formula is definitely long lasting and I have had great experience with these liners.
You simply cannot go wrong with either (or both!) of these as a holiday gift. They are boxed to perfection. How cute is the striped packaging with gold and red accents? I am obsessed. Plus for $29, you are getting an $80 value for five of bareMinerals’ Lasting Line Long-Wearing Eyeliners. They retail for $16 each! In other words: this. is. a. steal.
