I really was diappointed when I got this in the mail - it was a bit too orange looking. BUT, I tried it anyway and I am so glad that I did! It makes my brown eyes look terrific!! I will definitely buy this shade again and again!
I wanted to like this, but I didn't care for the way it looked after being applied. It was obvious that it had been applied, made my under eye area look dry and powdery.

I love this color! It is not as heavy as a dark liner and it seems to makes my eyes a little whiter. Will definitely buy this again!! I blended Midnight sky with just a touch of True Gold and wetlined the color onto my lash line - LOVE IT!!!!

I like to wear eyeliner, but applying it has always been a bit of a challenge. That is until now, I love the slanted eye liner brush; makes applying liner a breeeeeeeze!
Powder -Bare Escentuals - Feather Light Mineral Veil

I was somewhat surprised by the sparkliness. I mixed it with the regular MV, which made it a little less sparkly. I think it is great for nightwear, but not for the usual "work, chores, running errands" daytime activities. I thought feather light meant it was finely milled, more so than the regular BE MV. The price is fine - more MV for your buck than the usual MV. I won't run out of it for a while, but when I do I will buy more.
I was looking for a nice primer that would be a good base for my mineral shadows. This product made it hard to apply shadow evenly as it seemed to 'grab' the mineral powders. I think I'll just stick with my BE Well Rested.
Awesome mask! Easy to apply and remove, left my sking feeling so fresh and clean, not drying at all. Love using products that are made with natural ingredients. Wonderful product, like all other C.O. Bigelow products.

Great toner!! Cleans and refreshes without drying out your skin!
Powder -Rimmel - Lasting Finish Mineral Powder Foundation

I like the wat the foundation went on, smooth finish. I knocked off one lippie because I am not crazy about the brush.
I love Lancome Juicy Tubes lip gloss. The name fits the product - they apply well, are super shiny, give your lips a slight tint, and smell soooo good. Will definitely buy this and other Juicy Tubes 'flavors'.
I was excited about trying the MAC paints as everyone here seems to love them. The paint went on feeling heavy and 'grabbed/pulled' at my eye lids. When I tried to apply pigment afterwards, it did not blend well. I won't purchase a MAC paint pot again.
Powder -L'Oreal - Bare Naturale Powdered Mineral Foundation

I was looking for a less expensive alternative to my fave, BE mineral foundation. Unfortunately, this product isn't it. It left my skin looking cakey and powdery, yet oily hours later. Does not have staying power. Color was nice, but it overall, the product is not nearly as nice as BEs mineral foundations.
I have used many foundations, cream, liquid, cake, and powder and I have to say that this is the best! I have facial scarring from a car accident - no airbags :?( - and as a result, most foundations seem to gather in the scars, making them even more apparent. However, BEs mineral foundation goes on easily (I won't lie - you have to apply it a few times before you get the hand of it), stays where I put it, and has also had a wonderful effect on my Rosacea, reducing the redness/blotchiness. WONDERFUL product!!
I love this rich moisturizing cream!! I don't love the tin it comes in though, comes apart too easily - not good for keeping in your purse. Other than that - it is another great Nivia product!
I love BE products and the buxom glosses are no exception. I have tried Amber and Dolly and love them both. Made my lips shiny and pouty for hours. Love the tingle too!
