Ive tried BE foundation several times and have never had any success. I have really oily skin and BE makes me look like a oil slick within a few hours. The lightest shade they have is to dark for me. Everytime I tried wearing their foundation I would get comments on how heavy and oily my makeup looked. I tried BE because it is supposedly really good for acne prone skin but it clogged my pores and made me break out. I will be staying away from the BE line from now on. It was money down the drain for me.
This product was not what I expected when I received it in the mail, but I was very surprised by how much I like it. I use it after I cleanse my face initially with my clean and clear cleanser. My skin has stayed clear and really wonderful since starting to use this. It smells horrible and no it doesn't foam or make a paste very well, but the results are worth the price tag for me. I use this every evening and throw in the dark angel coal cleanser once a week. I haven't had any break outs and get compliments on my skin since adding this and dark angel to my routine. It will continue to be a staple.
This is a very good quality palette but not something I would purchase again. The eyeshadow colors aren't very wearable everyday and I had a hard time blending them. The great thing about this palette is the blush. It's a great color! The lip glosses are ok but nothing spectacular. One problem is how small the palette is. It's very easy to get blush and eyeshadow fallout into the lip glosses. Overall this palette is medicore and something I would only recommend for teenagers. The blush is the only thing from this palette I wear almost daily.

I think the reason why so many people have problems with this powder is IT IS NOT A BLUSH. It is made for very pale skin as a all over powder. I fall into the extremely pale category (MAC doesn't even make a foundation light enough.) This powder when lightly dusted all over my face gives me a very pleasant peachy glow and adds a hint of color. I would recommend this as a all over highlighter for anyone super pale. The scent and cute packaging is a awesome bonus!

This stuff is amazing! I started using this every morning in place of using my clean and clear advantage cleanser morning and night. Since using this in my morning face routine my skin is glowing! I haven't had any breakout, the redness is gone, and it leaves my skin so smooth. The only complaint I have is the screw top. A flip top would be much better. You get a great amount of the product for the price and it doesn't take much so this tube lasts a good amount of time. I highly recommend this stuff!

I purchased the Bare Escentuals Starter Kit after hearing so many great things about it. This stuff used along with the Bare Minerals Foundation made my skin very oily. It felt heavy and was way to dark for me. I then used it alone. I'm going to give this product another shot used under my Almay foundation, as far as I'm concerned right now I wouldn't waste my money on this. I understand what it's suppose to do but all it does is make my skin more oily and break out. The upside is it does make my skin smooth and made foundation application very easy, unfortunately my skin doesn't agree with it.
This product is horrible! As a teenager I was prescribed this and had to not only take a blood test but a pregnancy test every two weeks because of all the side effects. Anything that requires that much testing because of the danger is no good in my book. It also made my acne worse. I got off this and switched to using all lush products and behold my skin cleared up and I have been acne free ever since. I would never allow my teenager to be prescribed this. I'm surprised it has so many positive reviews. ***I am not talking about Accutane, I have never been prescribed a pill for acne.
This is a great deep purple eyeshadow. I use it to create a rich gold and purple look. It takes a couple of application to get the product really dark. I like that though because it helps me from getting to much on. It's easily blendable and is very versatile. This will be a purple staple in my collection.
This made my hair so smooth and shiny. I put it on and left it for two hours. I had to rinse and shampoo my hair twice though to get it all out. I only wash my hair twice a week because it's dyed and this helps keep it healthy and strong! My hairs health has improved so much after using this. I would recommend it it anyone who dyes their hair a lot and needs to improve it's health. It also feels great to give yourself a scalp massage with this wonderful smelling hot oil.
Horrible! This does nothing for your eyeshadow and I think it makes it crease even worse. Some days it would work ok by not making my eyeshadow crease but most of the time I couldn't tell a difference using it or not. Sometimes I notices my lids crease faster. The outcome of this product is inconsistent and crappy. The applicator sucks. I have the sponge applicator for primers. Why not a squeeze tube like Too Faced?
I bought this with Ocean Salt. Both were awesome! This smells so good and makes my skin feel so clean. Used in combination twice a week with Ocean Salt my face has become so clear and smooth. It doesn't over dry and is worth the price tag.
This mask leaves my skin so soft and clean. It helps clear my acne and it smells great. It is a bit expensive but a small tub will last for about 4 months using it twice a week. Since I started using it I have only had very minimal hormonal break outs during my cycle. It has also helped clear my acne scars. This will be a staple in my skincare routine from now on!
This color is so pretty. Ive gotten so many compliments on it. The application is great. This will be a stable in my collection! It's the perfect mint color. It's not to green and is very retro.
I love this color. It's so peachy and fresh. The application was great. My only complaint is sometimes I would find the color to look a bit dirty in certain light and also after awhile of wearing it on my fingers I got terribly tired of it.. It's very bright and I'll most likely be using it only on my toes from now on.
I love this dry shampoo. I only wash my hair 2 times a week and dye my hair with Manic Panic. I use this every night before I go to bed. I have really oily and limp hair. This product keeps my hair from getting oily and leaves it plenty of volume.The smell doesn't bother me and doesn't linger. I will be repurchasing!
