I really love this product-I have been using it for 3 months and really feel that it has reached its full potential at this point. I have enlarged pores, granted to me by heredity, and this is the first product that I have ever used that I really feel does as advertised.
I use it on my clean face, and follow with my moisturizer. It is lightweight, it doesn't have an offensive smell …

On my quest for the perfect primer, I decided to swap for this product. It has an outrageous price tag IMHO...$38 seems a little steep for the amount of product you recieve, so I feel that in swapping for it, I saved some $$.<P>The consistiancy of this product is somewhere between a gel and a wax, almost reminds me of prodcuts I used on my hair when it was short. You only need the …Read more

I really like Mata Hari...I must admit that NARS blushes have a way of roping me in...<P>Mata Hari is one of the tried and true colors that I have opted not to swap away(I swapped a way Orgasm,Sin and Deep Throat for their non-uniqueness).<P>Mata Hari can be sheer when applied lightly or built for a heavier layer of nuetral pink that does not overpower the rest of your makeup. I …Read more

I am NOT impressed with BE's Brushless Mascara...It goes on clumpy, and I do mean clumpy...It flakes off after about 3 hours and ends up all over your cheeks. In my opinion BE should stick with the minerals it does so well and stay out of the other areas of makeup, including mascaras, lipsticks and lipliners.

I swapped for this lipglass and I am so happy I did...It is possibly my most favorite lipglass...and that is not an easy thing for me to say...<P>Zazoom is the most amazing blue based pink with multi-colored micro glitter. It is a little pale for me in the winter, but is perfect for summer when I get a little color. It goes on like most lipglasses, although it is the newer formula that is …Read more

Aug/02/2004

A great alternative to BE's Clear Radiance which is much more geared toward cool complexions.<P>Warm Radiance is much more a bronzer IMHO than it is an "All Over Face Color", it gives you a nice warm glow to your face and can be used under foundation or over foundation, whatever you decide. It has a small amount of glimmer that is much more noticable in the pot than when …Read more

What a great nuetral color from BE...not that BE doesn't make a slew of colors that closely resemble this shade...because the do...Bisque,Vanilla Sugar,Soul and I am sure a few that I can't think of right now. Besides that...<P>Well Rested is my favorite color from the recent Wish Kit that QVC offered as a TSV in June.<P> It is a great off white that works wonders as a base …Read more

Jul/28/2004

I must agree with other reviewers, this color is very similar to Maiden in Raisen, seems that the biggest difference is the glitter particles are much bigger and more noticable on lips...I do get color payoff from this shade however.<P>It is a nice bronzy pink packed with micro fine glitter pieces that don't feel chunky on the lips at all. It is VERY sticky and I save it for …Read more

I have to disagree with most of the posters on this product...<P>I am not overly impressed with this brush set. There are things about it that I love, especially the packaging, I also like the silver handles. There are more things that I really don't like, the first and formost being that the brushes are not very soft when compared to my other brushes(Mostly Bobbi Brown, Cargo, MAC …Read more

Mar/19/2004

My first NARS lip product. I swapped for this item, and am not sorry...a pretty raspberry shade with a decent amount of shimmer. I was afraid of the scent after reading so many reviews stating that the lip laquer's smelled...but albeit, mine does not smell offensive at all. The pot is a little cumbersome, but does not take away from the outstanding quality of this gloss. Not to tacky and …Read more
