I know I'm in the minority here, but the smell of this stuff drove me up the wall - it smells just like an orange creamsicle - but I don't like them so it bugged me. It's a but too thin to have staying power, and mine separated in the tube - ended up losing half the product down the drain!
This didn't work for me. The color was very yellow and showed up that way on my PPP complexion. I also found it hard to apply - had to use my fingers but still had a hard time getting it out of the case. I can see that it would be nice for people who the color worked for though.

I love these! I have String of Pearls and Naughty Feather. They really don't crease and go on sheer but intensely shimmery. Don't get the matte ones though - I had Speed Bump and it dried up completely in a matter of months. I've had String of Pearls for 2 years and its still going strong, so the shimmers seem to be ok.
High beam is a benefit product that actually works. It leaves a nice pinky shimmer wherever you put it. My only complaint is that it tends to get a little goopy and dry up.
Although I generally like Benetint, I don't care for this balm. It has a strong rose taste and scent that really bothered me, and it left almost no color on my lips at all. The pot also had too small an opening, making getting any out hard.
I'm sorry, but this stuff is just awful. I bought it several years ago when it was hailed as the best thing since sliced bread by several magazines. I applied it, waited for it to dry and then applied my lipstick and waited for the miracle. What I got was goopy brown lipstick. This stuff changes your lipstick color and never, ever dries, no matter what they say on the box. I like some benefit products, but this one is a total gimick!
I love this blush (and the whole BE line!) I have sorbet, which looks like a wicked bright pink in the jar but goes on soft. It's a perfect shade for us PPPs! I apply with the BE brush and have no trouble. It's very natural, and works well over the BE mineral foundation.
I love these! I have Purrfect and Sex Kitten, and I'm waiting on Socialite and Summer right now! These shadows are intensely shimmery - more so than most! Some, like Purrfect, a deep olive green, look scary in the container but are beautiful on. My only complaint is that they can be a little messy to apply.
I have the powder brush for applying the foundation. I love it! It works very well with the foundation, and I also use it for BE Blush. It's fairly soft and the bristles don't fall out - I would recommend it!

I love this stuff! I wear shade #1 (fair) which is actually light enough for ghostly me (LBD Crema was too dark for example) it gives a wonderful glow, and I didn't find the application to be hard when I used the BE Brush. I'm going to get mineral veil too. My only complaint is that it sometimes can settle in pores - but since it doesn't cake I don't find it a big deal.

I didn't care for this - it left my face feeling very greasy and made me break out. I also didn't care for the scent of it at all! I never did see any "glow" either, but perhaps I was expecting too much.
This is a very nice cleanser. It leaves your face feeling very clean and doesn't seem to cause breakouts. Unfortunately it over dried my face so I can't use it, but I would still recommend it!
I don't think this adds any volume. The packaging is lousy too - in a glass bottle, I dropped mine and broke it in the bathroom! I prefer plastic.
I like this shampoo, but I wish it were more moisturizing! It leaves my hair dry and not very clean feeling sometimes. I do like it though - it does a nice job adding highlights when combined with the conditioner. Be careful to clean your shower curtain after using it though - it will stain!
I like this conditioner. I have colored hair that is a medium bright red. I would agree that it would turn blonde hair red - it really helps to keep mine red between colorings. I like to leave it in for 10-15 minutes once a week - it really leaves a color deposit!
