Phrases Chosen: perfect nude
Golden Gate is so natural and pretty-it seems to just meld with my skintone and become my own shade. On my fair (mostly cool) skin, it is a flesh toned mauve. I need to wear this more often-it's lovely!

This is a wonderful deep cool mauve, darker than Posh and not as shimmery. I love this in the fall and winter, or when I want a more dramatic blush colour.

Phrases Chosen: a must have!
This kit is amazing-everything is perfect! I thought the lipstick would be too dark, but it is wonderful-great with the gloss or on its own. Popular e/s makes my eyes POP, definitely a green eyes girl's colour, but I imagine it looks great on almost everyone. I wear it as a smudged liner with the HS Charisma on the lid and Well Rested under the brow. Glee Radiance is a beautiful soft shade-a nice blush or AOFC. This kit is money well spent.

Phrases Chosen: glowy
I've had a jar of this forever and finally decided to crack it open-at first the intense shimmer threw me off-I am way past my teen years and could not imagine it would look appropriate on me-WRONG! I put it on with the fan brush before my Mineral Veil and it adds the nicest soft pink/coral glow to my skin. Perfect as an AOFC for a fresh minimal MU look. I love this stuff.

Phrases Chosen: looks great with my faux tan
I don't normally wear coral, but this looks so nice with my new Faux Tan! It is sheer, so even on fair skintones it will work, unless you have very cool undertones. This blush will get a lot of wear this summer and it is a steal at 9.50!!

Phrases Chosen: awesome
I was having second thoughts after ordering this, but I am so glad I did! Everything in it works for me...the primer is so pretty on its own that I did not want to cover it with shadow, so I didn't! It reminds me of Bare Skin e/s. Queen Phyliss Matte will make a very good base colour, I know I will wear it often. The lip balm might possibly be my new favourite lip colour...a very pretty sheer raspberry, not too bright or dark, and very moisturising too. Let's add this and more colours to the regular line up (hint, hint!) I already had Love Radiance from another kit, but I don't mind having a backup as I use it on a regular basis. OMG, the liner!! I am in love with this pencil...I can't believe I just said that, since I am not usually a pencil fan, but the colour is so rich and vibrant, absolutely love it. More vibrant pencils too, please!! The charm is cute, it will probably go on my keychain. Can you tell I am very pleased with this purchase?!

I love this colour! I am wearing it right now as a smoky eye with Princess and Soul-we are going out later and this is the first colour that sprang to mind while getting ready. It goes with everything and looks incredibly sexy. A must have in every girl's BE arsenal.

Phrases Chosen: fresh and pretty
Fruit Cocktail is indeed intimidating in the jar, especially for a fair skintone, but it looks so natural and pretty. I just use the dust in the lid and the Soft Sweep Cheek Brush, and it gives me a very natural pink flush. The description says it has some coral tones, but I really don't see that--to me it is a bright hot pink. If you are looking for a fun pink blush this is it.

Sugar Plum is amazing! Wonderful colour payoff and it keeps my lips moisturised all day. I am fair and it is definitely a purple/plum shade with some shimmer and lots of shine. I think I need a backup tube.

Help in choosing a right shade
I've been trying to find the perfect blusher to create a natural looking flushed look and have been using pinky shades but as always, they are too pink for me.
Would anyone recommend this shade or any other shades for an Oriental girl?
Have you tried Golden Gate? Or maybe I should ask which pinks have you tried? GG is a flesh toned mauve, not too pink at all. Also, maybe Hint or Sorbet?

True is actually an All Over Face Colour, you should be able to find it here in that category.

How can I stop my lower-lid liner shasow from smearing during the day?
I just started using BE liner shadow. I use it as a liquid and apply a thin line to both lower and upper lids, but by the end of the work day, the lower line seems to have "dried" and smeared below my eyes. Not attractive! Any application tips or other ideas? thanks!
Do you use an eye primer? If you do, try mixing your liner shadow with a little primer, make a cream liner and see if that helps-it helped me.

How big is the "small" container of concealer?
I have been looking to buy the BareMinerals concealer for a while now, but have not had the money. I found this "small" container for only $6.50, but I was wondering how big it really is. I do not plan to use a lot of concealer, so a small one would probably be perfect for me. I just do not want to buy it if it will only last me a few times. Thanks!
I believe the small container is the size of a regular eye shadow jar. HTH!

I just ran out of a liner shadow (retro) that I've had for 2+ years. Unfortunately, I didn't see it in the list of available liner shadows.
Has it been discontinued or just renamed? If so, what is the new name?
It hasn't been renamed, just not readily available on its own. Have you tried Bark? It is almost as dark as Retro.
