I love this make up sponge. I've been using them for over a year and it's my go to tool for foundation and concealer around my eye area. I understand this doesn't work for some people and I understand why they have their complaints. But for me- a dedicated make up sponge user- it's a winner. The texture of this sponge is in fact different than the various generic make up …Read more

The packaging while not even remotely practical is certainly gorgeous and fun. The actual eye shadows are beautiful colors and nicely pigmented BUT unless you want to press a tissue on the rest of your face while applying (even with specialty glitter eye shadow brush/applicators) you will have the very unfortunate glitter fallout from disco ball hell going on.

This make up reminds me of movie reviewing on IMDB. If you don't like X,Y,Z movie you just "didn't get it". What I mean is that- often times whenever someone has a complaint about BE, people will chime in and say "you were using it incorrectly; you used too much, you didn't buff enough, you need a setting spray, you have the wrong color" etc. Well let me tell …Read more

Bottom Line: I wouldn't buy this again
I purchased the light shade with high hopes given the BB craze the past few years. It seems a trial trying to navigate the many options with these new babies so I was excited to try the BB thing at the drugstore level. I wanted to like this!
The scent is refreshing, light and nice. I LOVED the texture of this, so ultra creamy. My skin is …
