Great collection-can't beat the sale price!

This collection is really beautiful. These are all full-sized eye shadows so you cannot beat the sale price. The colors are really beautiful. To be honest, when I first played with these colors at the boutique, I thought that I only really loved about half of them. But then when I got the colors home, I played around a bit and I'd say that I genuinely love 10/12 colors and I like the other 2 colors, which is pretty good for a set. January is a light periwinkle color; February is a pretty pale pink; March is a nice medium green color; April is a baby blue color; May is a grape purple color; June is a very sheer light yellow; August is a bronze color; September is a brown with very different colored shimmer; October is a great purple with a reddish undertone; November is my favorite color-a grayish purple color; and December is a white color with a lot of shimmer.

Torn about this item
Rating
3 out of 5
3 out of 5
I bought this item when it first came out...I'm torn about it. First I want to review this product as a concealer which is how a lot of people are using it. For me, it's too yellow. It seems odd to me to use a yellow product to cover redness. Green covers and neutralizes redness. So as a concealer, I rate this product very low-1-2 hearts. Now as an actual redness remedy/therapy, I rate the item a bit higher. I have used it for a few months and it seems to help reduce the redness a bit. I use it at night before bed on the redness around my nose and cheeks. It seems to help a little, but not a lot. I also have been using this item on breakouts and it seems to help make the breakout go away quicker. I think it dries out any congestion and helps it go away faster. I think this item works better on breakouts than the blemish therapy, which did not help my skin at all. If you're looking for a concealer, look elsewhere (there are green primers out there that look well); as a therapy for redness or breakouts, give it a shot.

If you've been curious about BE skincare, then this is a great way to try out a few key products. The purifying facial cleanser is great-it takes off all of your makeup (eye makeup included) and is gentle enough to use twice per day. It doesn't dry out your skin and makes it feel very tight and clean after use. The moisturizer is perfect for combination skin-it's probably not heavy enough if you have dry skin, but it's good for everyday use for combo skin. The eye cream is great too. It's a thicker cream and makes your eyes feel tight and nice afterwards.

This is a really great product. I've used other primers before but this works perfectly with bare minerals. The texture is really smooth and you only need a little of the product. It makes your skin feel really smooth and makes your makeup go on much nicer. I would love for BE to make a tinted primer. I have red undertones and have used a green primer in the past to cut down on the redness. This is a great product and will definitely make your makeup last all day and night. A must use for BE wearers.

I really love this color. It's pretty sparkly with a pink tone to it. It doesn't have a lot of actual color to it, but it's absolutely perfect for layering. I usually use it all over my lid but sometimes I'll put it over another eye color and it tones it down a bit.

Perfect brush for radiance
Rating

This is a really great brush for applying radiance. I used to use the flawless application brush to apply radiance but I'm so glad that I have this brush now. if you're a fan of radiance, definitely get this brush. I think it would also work well as a blush brush. The bristles are less dense and therefore work well for all over face colors.

This is an interesting product-it's definitely unlike any other lip color that I've ever tried. It's some combination of a lip gloss, lip stain and lipstick. The shininess doesn't last too long if you're looking for more of a gloss. It's more like a lip stain than a lip stick. It goes on nicely but the brush takes some getting used to. The bold color/glossiness doesn't last too long though there is a stain on your lip after a while but not nearly as bold as the initial color. It's an interesting product. If you want a more saturated lip color then you might like this a lot but for me, I'd rather stick to Buxom for lip color/gloss.
The fearless color is nice, fairly neutral and would work well with most skin tones.

Another good set from BE

First, Dolly is my favorite Buxom color-I have it from another kit and wear it all the time. It's a beautiful color, neutral enough for anyone and good for day or night looks. The rose radiance is a really pretty color-it's more pink than many of my other radiance colors but I like it quite a bit because it still has brown undertones to it. The black liner shadow is exactly that-I don't use liner shadow too often but I look forward to playing around with this color. The starlight color is really pretty. I have a lot of light colors and I don't wear them too often but this is nice shimmery color with gold tones in it-definitely great for the whole lid and for layering or for a quick day look. The two brushes are great too-I haven't played with the flawless radiance brush but I can't wait to try it out. The double-ended brush is ice too-the contour brush is my go-to all over lid brush. And the liner brush is the best brush for using the loose liner colors from BE.

Mostly because I don't have any teal colors in my eyecolor collection. This color is great-it's really bold and I'll definitely be blending this with other colors to tone is down but it'd be fun to wear for a night out as well. The lucky penny color is incredible-it's a coppery color with almost purple undertones-beautiful! At first, I thought, blah, another light eye color, but the Dandelion is actually not a pure cream/white/light yellow color like many of the BE eye colors-instead it has a nice sheen to it and is really most like a light green color (despite the Dandelion name)-definitely a pretty color for layering.

This is really a great set, especially if you're new to BE or want to try out different products. The two eye colors are really nice. The satin ruffle is a light sheer creamy color which is great for all over color and for layering. The frills eye color is a really pretty color-different from anything else in my collection-it's a charcoal color with green undertones. The blush color is nice though I usually wear it on my eyes and not my cheeks. The icing lip color is nice too-it's pretty neutral and light and would work with any skin tone really. The mascara is a full size-which is rare in these kits. The eyeliner is charbronze is nice too-it's a darker bronze color. PLUS you get two brushes in this collection-a flawless application brush-which I use for MV, radiance, warmth etc. and the eye shaping brush which I haven't had a chance to play with yet.

Questions
 
Can this be used with the Clarisonic?
I just bought a Clarisonic and it says not to use it with exfoliating cleansers-does this include non-harsh BE exfoliating cleansers? Or just gritty drugstore brands. Anyone have experience with this? Thanks.

Is this the correct shade after using Fairly Light and getting a tan?
I normally use Fairly Light, but I have gotten some sun recently so I'm looking for a shade that better matches my "new" skin color. Is this the one I should try first? My undertones don't appear any different than they did before, but I'm a little scared that this shade might be too dark since I'm rather pale.
I'm fairly light and when I get some summer color, I use warmth mixed with my foundation to warm it up. You only need a little bit but it definitely makes the color a bit darker. You can also use your foundation normally and use warmth all over your face to warm it up.

I currently use fairly light but need a darker foundation for summer, what do you recommend?
Do I go with mediun beige and stay with netural or should I go to medium, I do have a pinker skin tone?
I'm fairly light and in the summer, I use warmth to darken my foundation-you can mix a little directly in the lid with the foundation or you can just use the warmth all over your skin for a little color. Tinted MV could work the same way as well.

Is the Bare Minerals Triple Eye Cream still available?
I went to a Bare Escentuals Store and asked for the Triple Eye Cream but was sold the Firming Eye Treatment. Has this replaced the Triple Eye Cream?
Yes-it's the same thing-they just rebranded and renamed their RareMinerals line.

Is this non comedogenic?
My dermatologist said its very important if its non comedogenic. I couldn't find anything on the bottle that said it was non comedogenic, so im not sure if it is or not.
I think it is. I can't be sure but I have acne prone skin and BE makeup and skincare line has improved my skin. You can definitely try it out and see what you think-I'm sure you'll like the results.

How to apply the primer?
This is my first time getting an eyelid primer it came in the flirty & fabulous kit that I baught and im unsure on how to really use this
You should put the eyelid primer on before you apply your eye color. It will help it go on more evenly, more vibrantly, and will help the eye color stay on longer.

What color eyeliner would work best with the Pretty Wild Kit?
I'm interested in buying the Pretty Wild Kit, and would like to know if I should be making an additional purchase of eyeliner. Or would you recommend using the greenhouse eyecolor as a liner?
If you're using the two colors together in this kit-you could go with a green or purple eyeliner and smudge it-I think either would work well with these eyecolors. This combination is really great together!

Has anyone ever used this cleanser with the Clarisonic Skin Cleansing system?
I use this cleanser now and I love it but I'm thinking of getting one of the Clarisonic skin cleansing systems.
I saw Leslie and the BE ladies on QVC and they said that all of their cleansers work well with the Clarisonic.

Deep Cleansing Foam (119 g / 4.2 Oz.)
 
Difference between the Purifying Facial Cleanser and the Deep Cleansing Foam.
I use the Purifying Facial Cleanser and I love it! But the Deep Cleansing Foam is supposed to be really good at reducing the size of pores and has gotten rave reviews. Is the Deep Cleansing Foam ok for everyday use? Do people use both of them in their regular routine- and if so, how? Do you recommend using both or one over the other?
The cleansing foam can be used everyday-all of the BE cleansers can be used every day twice per day. I use one cleanser in the morning and one at night. I usually use the exfoliating cleanser in the morning in the shower, and use either the deep cleaning foam or the purifying cleanser at night. I like them both but I think I like the foam slightly better because it has a cooling sensation and foams up nicely. I would say try the cleansing foam-your local BE or Sephora will give you a sample. And then decide which you like better/the best. I use all three cleansers.
