Breaks off with little to no pressure- to narrow??

Phrases Chosen: breaks off..... grrrr!
The color is great, I didn't have any problems with my lips drying out or any other taste, etc. issue.... my big problem is that no matter how little I expose of the pencil to keep the strength in the container-- the tip continues to break off and crumble. This started from the first time I unsealed the pencil so it wasn't a matter of the product not being fresh. I can't tell you how much of the pencil went in the trash because it was lost breaking off. I have never had problems with ip pencils before (any brand) so I know it's not my technique. I wouldn't have expected this from BE- I LOVE the rest of their lip products, actually the rest of ALL their products. I hope this is a problem they take a look at and either make the liner a little larger so it has more support, or find a formula that won't crumble with the least amount of pressure. I hate wasting $16.00 literally watching it go down the sink and cannot find my receipt to return....

Soft Glow with the ability to Highlight!!
Rating
5 out of 5
5 out of 5
Phrases Chosen: light, soft glow
I tried this on a whim, thinking it would end up more glittery then "glow". I was SO wrong. I don't see any glittery type powder in this at all- but it does bring my whole face to life with a soft subtle glow. Or, if I'm feeling/looking especially tired, I sweep it up by my eyes-- making sure to highlight my cheekbones with it and my eyes are larger again, my cheekbones show-- and those pesky crows feet which are starting to appear to bye-bye again!! I would LOVE to find this in a full size READY compact so when I run out I can resupply- the ready formula is so great for carrying in the purse, as well as giving you a little mirror. So far I've ordered two of these sophisticated little compacts and I might stock up on a 3rd. I would also love to see the hydrating mineral veil in a small portable ready company like this. Thanks BE!!

What is the point of lip liner?
I've never used lip liners before and honestly can't tell much difference when someone else uses them. Aside from layering colors (which you can do with just good old lipstick and glosses), is there much of a purpose to buying a liner?

Thanks!
I find a lip liner to have two main functions- first, it gives your lips a "polished edge" and by using the lip liner you can correct any lip areas you don't like (one side of the top lip is more "plump" then the other, etc. The second, and most importantly, is that it keeps your lipstick and gloss from feathering outside the outline you've made with the lip pencil. Another reason for using a lip liner is that many of us actually color in our lips with the liner, then add the lipstick and/or gloss over the top. it makes your color stay on longer-- especially if you drink a lot of liquids during the day (like me!). if almost provides your lips with a "stain" that then we you reapply your lipstick and gloss (if you want) brings you back to how good you looked in the a.m.-- it keeps your lips from going back to totally normal and washing you out. Many lipliners will dry your lips out-- but I don't find that with BE- I find it moisturizing (like all their lip products), and I love their colors- I've had total strangers (in cosmetic departments) stop me and ask about my lip colors and how great my lips look-- go figure.... I just thought I had normal lips! Hope this helps!!

What size is the touch up glow in this set?
Wondering if it is full size or mini for $14

thanks
Camille
Camillcanada-- it is the "mini".... but it works the purse-- or especially an evening clutch SO, SO, well. I've not found it in a full size "ready" formula-- the illuminating (Touch Up To-Glow) mineral veil, but I sure love this. I would love to see this size company continued in this color/finish as well as having the hydrating mineral veil formula in a ready company- mini or regular. I would stock up on these little beauty's... but then again, it lasts a long time, good thing BE never goes bad!!
