I'm really surprised at the bad reviews. Mind you, I have med/light brown hair and used Light Brown 6.0- fairly close to the color it was. I used it to blend growth of highlights and greys, to even it all out basically.

I had to use two packages, but my hair is pretty long.
I like the smell, the consistency.
End result is very nice and quite natural looking.
I …

Not terribly impressed with this one, sadly. It's very expensive for the amount of product you get. BareMinerals is quite superior, for half the cost (nearly).

What I like:
It goes well over concealer for a very subtle evening out of skin tone. That's about it.

What it lacks:
Pigment! Hardly any coverage. Bareminerals I can use as concealer with a …

So many positive reviews, and tips- thank you MUA! This helped me a lot in making the decision to even attempt at-home highlights.

My hair was growing out from dyed medium/dark brown, I had been colouring it medium brown but it had faded. I had about two inches of natural growth at the roots, which is ash/mousy brown with LOTS of grey. Basically I'm sick of dying my hair to …

I have been going to the salon for a year, every 5 weeks to have my roots touched up. Needless to say, $100/pop adds up fast.

I have naturally medium/dark brown hair and a LOT of grey. My stylist has been making it nice and dark and rich, and emptying my wallet in the process. I just can't afford to be going every 4-5 weeks (and trust me, that's stretching it) to have my …

I just picked this up yesterday- the price can't be beat so I figured I'd give it a go.

This is the perfect set of makeup for my purse. I use BE for nearly everything else, but it's not very convenient to carry around or touch up.

The concealer+foundation worked great under my eyes which weren't looking too refreshed this morning. The mascara was ok …

Wow, not sure what else I could possibly add to Laci's review- well done, and well stated! I love this set, it's beautiful. The Mermaid eye colour is gorgeous. It's got some colour to it, but not overdone.

This is another great kit from BE, some bang for your buck- and a great way to try out several products for the price of one.

The brush- while i find …

I love this set- the brush has become a staple for me and I pretty much use it for most of my eye shadows and looks. The two shadows included are very very pretty- Celestine is quite shimmery but somehow it still looks conservative enough for day wear. I also use it sparingly, so maybe that helps. Skyline always gets me a compliment on my eyes- which are a grey/blue. Love the set, it's a …Read more

I've only been using this for a few days- but so far I really like it. I've been wearing it over Clinique dramatically different moisturizing gel in the morning, and with the night rescue lotioin for oily skin. And on top of that I've been using my new Clarisonic twice a day for the last week. Whatever the cocktail is, it seems to be working. My skin looks smooth, even, and …Read more
