Ben Nye LiquiSet
This is an amazing product! It can take any powder eyeshadow and make it into a smudge proof/budge proof liquid. I use it when I want to make eyeliner out of my MAC pigments or Bare Escentals eye shadows (you could use it to foil the eye shadows too). Too Faced, Benefit and more recently Bare Escentals make similar products, but much, much more expensive (especially for how much product you get) and none of those products (I've tried them) work nearly as well as LiquiSet. A medium sized bottle of this stuff is $8.00 (a small size is $4.75....which is an equivalent size of the Bare Escental's sealer which is $18.00) and will last forever! I have put on my eyeliner at 5:00 a.m. (getting ready for work), worked all day and gone out to a concert at night and my eyeliner will be perfect when I come home. It works that well. Using this really expands your eyeliner colors. While I love my MAC Fluidline and Smashbox JetSet, the colors are limited, compared to being able to turn any eye shadow into a budge proof eyeliner.
Using a small eye smudger brush, Spencer set the cream liner from L’orèal and soften softened it a bit by going over the liner with a sparkling, charcoal powder shadow from Ben Nye’s Eye Shadow Collection.
This is an amazing powder. It is comparable to the infamous T. Le Clerc's Banane. I've tried both the T. Le Clerc and the Ben Nye and you really can't beat the Ben Nye. The yellow of the Ben Nye is just a tad darker, but the textu... This is an amazing powder. It is comparable to the infamous T. Le Clerc's Banane. I've tried both the T. Le Clerc and the Ben Nye and you really can't beat the Ben Nye. The yellow of the Ben Nye is just a tad darker, but the texture and quality I feel are comparable. If you use any "banane" type power, such as Bobbi Brown, Benefit, and T. Le Cler's, you have nothing to lose with this powder. A smaller size is $8.50 and the large size is $11.50 (I have the smaller size which comes in a shaker bottle, which I like). I always have a bottle of this in my makeup arsenal.
