My favorite eyeshow formula is the ready formula.

Phrases Chosen: long-wearing, pigmented, smooth application, blendable
Love the one shade, the left shade in the enlightenment duo, the shade on the right is really dark, both have beautiful pigmentation. Definitely my favorite duo, but only because of the shade on the left as it makes the perfect daytime smokey eye for my skin tone. Very smooth formula. It applied like a dream, and is easy to blend. I have very oily skin most of the year and for about 2 months in a very cold windy NE winter I have combination skin that leans oily. Nothings holds up on me like the ready eyeshadow formula. I get good wear whether I use primer or not, though I do notice I get better wear when I avoid using eye cream on my eye lids, true of all eyeshadow. The colors are beautiful and I love all the finishes. I have two requests. One is a basics eyeshadow quad for EVERY major skin tone; 2 matte transition/crease shades based on skin tone, and 2 matte highlight shades based on skin tone. 1 warm transition and highlight, and 1 cool transition and highlight. Each major skin tone would have their own quad of basic everyday shades perfect for their skin tone, and since one would be warm and one would be cool, they could be used in every eyeshadow look. A quad for each; fair, light, medium, tan, dark, and deep. It would save people a lot of trouble and money. No more shopping for the perfect shade for their skin tone or shadow look. I can only speak for the issues I have had on my hunt for the perfect shades for my fair wearing skin, nearly everything is too dark/dramatic on me. I imagine other skin tones have their own issues finding the perfect shades. Plus it would be so convenient to have everyday shades, all in one palette, so it would save me time in the morning. I bet it'd be a big seller. My second request, ready matte brow powder duos, just like the ready eyeshadow in shades for everyone (not just warm); ash blond, golden blond, light auburn, dark auburn, light warm brown, light ash brown, medium ash brown, medium warm brown, dark warm brown, dark ash brown, black, and gray. Each duo could have a slighter lighter shade and a slightly darker shade. It is hard to find the perfect brow shade, the colors I try are almost always too warm, or they do not have the best ingredients.

Makes my lips look like a child's pigmented pink lips. The color looks quite bright and a little scarey, but it goes on sheer. Applicator applies the perfect amount evenly. Love this gloss. Ive noticed a decline in the performance of my bux0m since selling, so happy to have an alternative.

Phrases Chosen: warm toned, slight tingle, slight plumping, smooth, moisturizing
I decided to try it out after reading a review about a cool toned person loving this set. It didn't work for me. There is nothing wrong with this set (thus 5 stars), I simply cannot wear warm tones easily. By the way, how great is it that bare minerals did a set of cool and warm tones. Please continue to do cool and warm lip sets. If you have a neutral or warm skin tone, this will be great on you. If you are cool and do not have a lot of redness in your skin, or if you do not mind doing some serious covering up of redness, this set will likely work for you. If you are cool toned and want to try it, be sure to neutralize all redness in your skin (with either a yellow based foundation or concealer or neutral foundation and/or concealer) otherwise the warm tones will clash and make you look more pink than you already did. The lip gloss smells like cinnamon (no burning), vanilla, nutmeg, and tastes good (but not so good you are eating it). It has a slight tingling smooth semi-thick feel on the lips. For a comparison Id describe buxom as a sweet vanilla scent, but it tastes like a menthol based vapor rub, tingly, thick, and pretty sticky. If you find ALL lip gloss sticky, marvelous moxie will not be an exception. Onto the colors. Maverick is a medium rosy brown, one of the few I liked. Crowd surfer is a light pink, has a slight yellow undertone to it, I can wear this one as long as Ive got tinted moisturizer or a light foundation on. Smooth talker is a light pink with lots of gold shimmer, looks gold on my lips, terrible on me. Fire cracker is a red with a very slight warm tone (at least on me), very sheer and wearable, I can wear this one as long as Im wearing foundation and concealer on my chin and sides of my nose. Smarty pants is a pale champagne, doesn't work on me. Dreamer is a light golden bronze shade (very light bronze), also doesn't work on me.

Phrases Chosen: slight tingle, slight plumping, moisturizing, smooth texture, wears even, pleasant scent, pleasant taste
Marvelous moxie has a far more subtle tingle than buxom, tingles a little bit. It is not as sticky as buxom, more smooth with a little stickiness. I find the wear time similar. Marvelous moxie smells like cinnamon (but doesn't burn), nutmeg, and a little vanilla. I love the smell and taste. Buxom tastes like a menthol vapor rub to me (but smells good). I put this on before bed and I wake up with full, soft, hydrated lips. It lasts all night on me. I like that bare minerals came up with two marvelous moxie lip kits and I hope they do the same in the future; one has cooler shades (this set) and the other has warmer shades. Ive got very pale very pink skin, cool undertones, and I cannot pull off warm lip colors (not without trying). I appreciate that I am buying a whole kit of lip gloss shades that look good on me, on my cool skin tone. Usually kits have a mix of tones and I never use the warmer shades, which is a waste. If you look good in warm shades, there is a warm kit. If you look good in cool shades, there is a cool kit. My color descriptions are based on what they look like on the lips. Hot ticket is a sheer pop of a bright medium pink with a slight shimmer to it, bright but wearable. Daredevil is a sheer merlot wine shade with extremely subtle shimmer, again very wearable. Fashionable late is a very pale pink champagne shimmery shade (very finely milled micro glitter in this one), very nice in the center of the lips to make lips appear fuller. Socialite is a light pink shimmery shade (not too light and again very finely milled micro glitter), very soft and girly. Fashionably late and socialite are the two with the most shimmer to them. Gutsy reminds me of jet setter (qvc duo) a sheer berry with very subtle shimmer. Rebel is a great every day, goes with everything, naked pink lip with no shimmer (as far as I can tell). I love all every shade. I hope to see hot ticket, fashionably late, socialite, and gutsy (jet setter) in full size available for separate purchase.

Phrases Chosen: great pigmentation, not powdery, blend nice, apply nice, don't fade
The pans are smaller than the 4.0s, but you do not need much (lightly set/tap brush into pan), and the color selection is worth it. The actual size of the case is perfect for travel, about 1&1/2 4.0s. Even though I suspect it would travel nice, I won't travel on an airplane with anything I care about. Id take it on a road trip, train, or cruise. The online picture of this doesn't do the palette shades justice. They are far more vibrant in person. FYI the palette is missing a matte brow bone highlight and a matte crease blending shade (no big deal for me). Color applies true. I love the little double ended brush. Often I do not like included brushes, but I like this one. VIP is a matte black base with golden and copper very finely milled micro glitter. I do not notice the micro-glitter unless I use it wet or really pack it on. Connoisseur is a really neat brassy bronze shade, it has shimmer. Carte blanche is a pearl shade that has a sheen to it once on the skin. Ritsy is a milk chocolate shimmer shade. Kudos is a pale taupe sheen. Bragging rights is a rosy copper metallic shade. Elitist is a sage green shimmer. Extravagance is a warm yellow gold sheen, borders metallic if packed on or applied wet.

FYI the palette is missing a matte brow bone highlight and a matte crease blending shade (no big deal for me). My favorite shades in the palette are max volume, one hit wonder, most requested (awesome on green eyes), and speaker box (olive green shimmer). I love that the color applies true to pan. My least favorite shade is remix (warm gold almost brass shade). On my super pale pink skin it doesn't work (fair but if they had a paler shade Id use it).

Phrases Chosen: pigmented, blends beautifully, doesn't fade, doesn't crease
I bought the truth palette. Colors will suit a variety of skin tones and eye colors. Really nice everyday palette. Easy, no thinking necessary, when I have five minutes for my eyes in the morning. I find (the shades in this palette) go on beautifully. Nice pigmentation, so a little goes a long way. Nice and almost creamy, so minimal fallout. They blend beautifully. If you have issues with blending; only use the tip of your brush, do not press rather use a very light gentle stroke, still streaking try using a matte skin tone shade all over your lid before applying these. I do not need to use primer when I wear these eye shadows. I have oily eye lids and they last me all day, which is a first ever. I was nervous to try these new ready shadows, Ive been using be since they started doing infomercials (I was just getting into makeup so my mom would order it for me). My expectations were very high, and they were met. How often can you say that?

I wear fair in the foundation. I notice no one with fair foundations writes reviews on the faux tan collection. One use gives me a very subtle, very subtle, bit of warmth and color to my skin. No streaks after one use. I decided to use it again the next night. When I woke up I was a streaky mess. Waited about a week to start all over again, same thing. Waited a week and tried using a little and really rubbing it in good, tried using quite a bit and not rubbing it in very good. I tried everything I could think of to get this to work for me. It never did. I like the regular faux tan, so I thought Id like this too. It is good for winter if you live up north and do not want to use the full on faux tan, for fear of looking way too tan in winter. It is also nice is you want something subtle. I wound up giving this to my mom who has medium beige skin tone, she quite likes it and it does not get streaky on her. I should also probably note that this broke my back out, broke my face out, and was not very moisturizing.

Seriously, no other gloss even comes close. I do not even buy other glosses, just buxom. Naturally I have almost all the shades that will work for me in the regular line-up. Love to see new seasonal colors. This one looks, wow florescent pink. I thought no way. A sales clerk insist I try it on. Glad I did. It is sheer so very wearable. It is on trend, but not in a way that is screaming hot pink lips. It is a slight pop of hot pink. Does beautiful things to the lips. Love this color. Keep it in the line-up. I will buy it when I run out.

Everything contains chemicals, everything, including your body. What you want to ask is, 'does this product contain any potentially harmful ingredients or harmful chemicals'. The answer is no, I do not see anything that would make me discontinue usage.

I like prefer it to UD. I get creasing after about a few hours with UD, with this one I do not get creasing until about 7 hours. Ive got very oily lids though. Id describe it as not as slippery as UD, not as liquidy as UD, but it isn't dry looking either. I think eye shadow primer preference depends at least a little on skin type. I like UD under my eyes, but not on my lid. If you've got super super oily lids (oily within ten-fifteen minutes of washing face then try n@rs (@=a) shadow primer.

Is this retractable eyeliner or one that you sharpen? It does not say in the description and I was confused by some of the reviews.
I'm asking about the Big & Bright Eyeliner.
Top 10 Contributor
Big and bright is retractable, but there is a mini tool on the end for which you can sharpen the liner stick that comes up. It is awesome and works on all retractable liners of about the same size. Worth the purchase alone. In other words, it is retractable (twists up and down), but the liner that twists up can be sharpened with the mini tool. You can find the tool on the opposite end of the liner. The butt end comes off, on one side is a smudger the other side is a tiny sharpener (you have to get the little (almost a) cap off of the tiny sharpener. Try to find a video on youtube. That may be more helpful. Just type in bare minerals big and bright eye liner.

Prime Time Brightening Eyelid Primer (luminous golden sheen) (0.1 fl. oz.)
 
Will this keep liners in place?
I have problems with very oily eye lids and have a problem with liners running and disappearing by mid day. Will this keep liners in place?
Top 10 Contributor
Eye shadow primer will help. If you line your lower lash line, use some there too. Look for stuff with words like long wear and water proof. Ive had great luck with BB (high end brand womans name female makeup artist created brand) gel liners. Gentle and they hold up on my oily lids. If you use powder try something like fix plus instead of water. t@rtE makes liners that last a long time, unfortunately they all look the same once on the lid save black and bronze/brown. I find UD stays true to color and lasts, but sadly something in them really irritates my eyes (if you do not have sensitive watery eyes you may want to try them). Try different kinds/brands of liners. With holidays coming up, no better time with all the high end sets.
