Phrases Chosen: hydrating luxurious
Let me start out this review by saying that I am a lotion/body cream/body butter junkie. My legs are so dry that it's like I walk around on the Sahara. I am constantly looking for a prodcut that will soak into my skin quickly, hydrates it for more than 20 minutes at a time, and doesn't make my skin feel worse for it. Ladies and gentlemen, this product is my personal nirvana!!!! It soaks in quickly, and skin feels wonderful afterwards. It doesn't feel greasy, or funky - it just feels like amazingly touchable soft skin. I cannot say enough good things about this product. Please, please, please, buy it. You cannot go wrong with this winner!!

The only masacra that works!!!
Rating
5 out of 5
5 out of 5
I am an afficiando of mascaras - simply because I have never been able to find one that works like it says it does. I have pretty decent lashes, but the stick out completely straight and have a hard time keeping a curl even with a curling iron. The masacra does EVERYTHING it says it does! My stick straight lashes curl up and touch the top of my eyelids. This is truly my "if I was stuck on a desert island" product. I cannot live without it!!

Yet another AMAZING product from BE!!

Phrases Chosen: love this product!!!
As per usual, BE has it out of the park with Stroke of Light! It does an amazing job of covering up dark circles, and doesn't settle into any lines you may have. And I have tip - I use it right over the smile lines that run from my nose to the corners of my mouth. By putting Stroke of Light there and patting it in with my ring fingers, it smooths out my face and takes about 10 years off!!

Phrases Chosen: fresh springtime
This is one of those great little kits, (actually not so little), that you should pick up! Peach is one of the universally flattering colors and this kit has the perfect shades!!. For those of you who still haven't tried the Ready formula this is also an excellent opportunity to get your feet wet with the gorgeous shades in the sweet duo that is included.
I was lucky enough to pick this up in the BE boutique in Indianapolis about a week ago, and have already worn this kit 3 times. Just like with all of the other BE shades, you can build the color so that it becomes super simple to wear this as a very neutral fresh look, or smoke out that eye for an evening look.
AND you get a full size masacara and Moxie! Honestly, this is one of those few things in life that is a no brainer. Pick this kit up and you won't regret it!

The palette is just so much fun
Rating

Phrases Chosen: luxe choices lovely, the palette of a 1000 looks
First, let me say that I was lucky enough to pick up this palette on sale for a measly $25 dollars. All of these beautiful colors would be a steal at the regular price, but this just made it all better.
Don't let the few darker colors in here scare you; you can use them as liners! These colors give the same soft, buildable coverage that you've come to love in all of the BE colors. In addition to that you receive a handy dandy little card that shows you three different ways to wear the colors in this collection. The colors are really neutral and able to be worn in a ton of ways! If you haven't had the opportunity to try any of the READY eye colors yet, then this is the collection to get your feet wet on! Not to mention that you get a little baby Prime Time included with this - and if you aren't using Prime Time, then sister you are missing the boat!!
A couple of quick tips: First, please, please, please don't be tempted to get that brush in there and rub it back and forth over the colors. Believe me, I completely understand that this is the way we've all used eyeshadows in the past, but you will just soooo much product on your brush that you'll never be able to use it all. The key here is to pat the brush onto the color, trust me, you'll get plenty on the brush. Also, don't forget that those darker colors make for beautiful liners - just remember to pat that brust on the color!

This product is Ahu-mazing!!!!!!

Phrases Chosen: ahu-mazing!!!!!, glides on smoothly, stays all day
I was one of the lucky people who ordered this early via QVC, and I cannot imagine NOT using this product! First, like all of the Prime Time foundation primers, this baby slides over your skin effortlessly, and provides the same all day round the clock use that we've all grown to love so dearly. The thing that drives this above and beyond is the fact that it just simply removes the redness from your skin! I swear it's like magic in a bottle. A couple of pumps and viola! - all of that redness is gone. Trust me, if you have ANY redness to your skin you owe it to yourself to try this.
Oh - and a little tip that I use: 1 pump of the Neutralizing and 1 pump of the oil control, mix them together and you'll have a matte, red-free finish in approximately 2 seconds!

Phrases Chosen: choices choices choices, the color combinations are endless (& beautiful)!
First, I have to say that the I love the size of this palette. It fits beautifully in my purse, clutch, or whatever I'm carrying. I also adore the natural lip color formula - the texture is magnificent and simply feels wonderful on my lips. As for the brush size, I think it's perfect for this kit. Keep in mind, that just like every other BE product, a little goes a loooonnnggggg way!!!
Secondly, the choice of color here is simply FABulous! There is every shade in this compact for a demure look for the office to unleashing the kitten in all of us. The best part? Because there are so many choices, and they are all in the same spot, you can mix and match on your lips to create your one of kind perfect color!!
I believe there is a TON of product in this little compact - evidenced by the fact that I've had mine for well over 4 years. I LOVE it!!

Phrases Chosen: creamy long-lasting beautiful, worth the price of admission!
I purchased these during one of the famous "Last Chance" sales and I couldn't have been happier with the purchase. The colors are gorgeous, and the pair wonderfully together or worn alone. They are creamy in texture and long lasting; in short, they are perfect!
I have to admit that I was a little leery of both the extremely light pink pencil and the plum gloss that matches with it. When I put them on together - WOWZA! The color they create is fantastic! Perfect size to stick in your purse or in the pocket of your skinny jeans for a night out.

This is an AMAZING product!!!

Phrases Chosen: full coverage moisturizing fabulous, this is a game changer!
Okay, so let me start this review off by saying that yes, I am a full on BE girl, and have been for about 7 years now. I was also one of the incredible lucky people who had this product shipped to me for free because I filled out a FAB survey!!! So yes, I really have used this product.
This product is AMAZING!!! I was a little leery because it's a solid; how is it going to go on? Is it going to be chalky looking? I'm I going to have to use a metric ton to get coverage? The short answer is: Beautifully, Nope, and DEFINITELY nope!
It's important to know that while Swirl, Tap, Buff has been ingrained in us - this product is different. It's Tap and Buff. Make sure that you get an angled brush and tap it a few times into the compact - no more - then with wide, sweeping strokes brush that wonderful goodness on to your face. That's it! Resist the overwhelming urge to go back again and again. A little of this will give you a full coverage face; believe me, I know that doesn't sound right, but it's so true!
Now for how it feels: It feels like silk going on. On top of the full coverage in about 20 seconds, (if anything I'm exaggerating on the long side of that time frame), my skin looked wonderfully hydrated, and it felt wonderful to the touch!
As for wear time - I have been in this for up to 12 hours and it simply stays put. There is no traveling, or shine break through, or oiliness to this; just hours of wonderful, smooth, stay-put, hydrating goodness!
I have to admit, that as I said before I was a little leery, but I couldn't have been more wrong. Not only is this a fantastic formulation, it travels beautifully because it's in a pressed form. If you are on the fence at all about this, I can tell you - first hand - that you are going to love this product.
Thanks again BE for hitting it out of the park with this product!!!!

Jack of All Trades trio
You offered a Jack of All Trades trio last year on QVC. I love the product and the colors in that collection. Will you be offering that product in those colors again? I am almost out and hate the thought of not having it anymore. Please consider! Thank you!

Hi Mommakansas!

Just like you, I picked up that same trio on QVC last year. I don't know if you had an opportunity to watch last weekend, but they introduced a brand new trio for Spring. I know it's not the same colors, but they seem very similar in makeup, ( a neutral, a pink, and a berry), so it may be fun to try out some on trend colors for Spring.
