I actually like the tinted one more, but this stuff is really great. You just have to be careful not to put too much on or your cheeks will look cakey. That's not true about most BE products, but it is for Clear/ Tinted Radiance.
This stuff is great! It doesn't drip and it mixes very well. It went slightly darker than I wanted, so next time I'll just go a shade lighter. My hair is naturally a dark blonde, but I prefer darker hair on me. So, I bought dark brown & it is practically black. Since dark colors fade quickly anyways, it's not a big deal to me. My hair is super soft & shinny now. I really wish you could buy the conditioner in a bottle. I would use it a lot. I will definitely buy this brand again.
Makeup Brushes -Bare Escentuals - Wet dry shadow brush

This brush does exactly what it claims: you can use it for wet or dry shadows. It's great for eye foiling. I love this brush!
This is a great bush. It holds just enough eyebrow powder to do both eyebrows. It's smoothe and doesn't make a mess. Love this brush. Although I don't use all of BE's products anymore, I do love the brushes!
Best thin brush ever. I will use it forever. It's easy to clean and the same brush has stayed in good condition for two years now. I love it with the BE eyeshadow/liners.
Makeup Brushes -Bare Escentuals - Handy Buki Brush

My favorite foundation brush by far. A large handle keeps your fingers away from the product and thick bristle base holds a lot of foundation, but doesn't store it up inside forever. It's a great brush!
I really liked this brush at first. It gave good coverage, but then it started to really dry out and turn scratchy even after using the proper brush cleaners and moisturizers. It's $29 at ulta. I probably won't buy it again. I like Japanese tools better.
I like this product. It does a good job of getting makeup off except for eye makeup. I still had to use baby oil gel to get my mascara off. Besides that, it worked great. I noticed that some of the reviews mentioned that it is $3 at Ulta. I paid 5.32 at Target. So, don't buy it there. I would recommend this, but I don't necessarily like it as much as my Olay disposable facial cloths.
Cleansers -Neutrogena - Wave™ (Power-Cleanser And Deep Clean Foaming Pads)

I really like this product. I have been using it for about a week and I definitely feel my skin getting smoother every day. I have used numerous cleansers, scrubs, cleansing cloths, etc. and nothing has made my face as smooth as this little machine. I will keep buying refills. I use it every night after using the Neutrogena Gentle Foaming face wash to get my makeup off.
I love bareminerals, so I knew that I would love this product. I have always had trouble finding the right shade. I am a medium tone but I get very dark during the summer. I finally found my perfect shade "Thistle". It's absolutely amazing and lasts all day! Even though I've stopped using BE's foundation and moved onto another mineral foundation, I will keep using this great blush!
I was on middle ground with this one. Nothing great, but not bad.
I totally agree with beautiflaw! My best friend in highschool did the same thing. Now the scent just reminds me of times that I am glad are over and of her. uhg!!!
Love this stuff. I use it in the shower every morning. My husband uses it too. He wouldn't admit it, but I noticed that it is the only item of mine in the shower that gets moved around. So, we'll definitely keep buying it! It scrubs the dead skin off and makes my skin extra soft. The target brand apricot scrub is quite comparable in quality, but a dollar cheaper.
Greasy, Greasy, Greasy! The cons are: the coverage is thick and cakey, it sweats off in thick muddy rivers, the colors are never right, it has glittery sparkles in it. The models they show in the advertisements are definitely not wearing this garbage. Pros: lots colors to chose from. however, none were right for me. It left me feeling really greasy. I highly recommend not purchasing this stuff.
This is the best balm ever. I always have one with me. The tingles feel great and it makes my lips soft. For seriously chapped lips, I would use something stronger and then use this once their close to healed. This is more of a preventative than a healer, but I still love it!
