Phrases Chosen: matte black, thin line
The around the clock pencil that needed sharpening was not my fav. The pigment while deep was too soft and you needed a brush to get a clean line. This is very similar to their old eyeliner that was discontinued. This one doesn't need sharpening and it gives you better control. The black is nice and deep. I’m glad they brought it back!

I have this in dark purple and black. It's been messy in ways I couldn't have anticipated. I have to agree, I like the big and bright eyeliner much much better. While not waterproof If you used an eye primer it lasted all day. I also liked the finer point and not having to sharpen it.

Great travel kit, it has everything but mascara! I found the blush and bronzer shades to be just right for my fair skin. The eye shadows work well for daytime and the black shadow can be used as a liner. It’s a large pallet and could be slimmer but the mirror is nice and big.

I finally took the plunge and bought this pallet when it went on sale. It has all my favorite colors. I like the brush and the slim design; it will be perfect to take along on vacation. The colors work well together. I use them vertically like; brown + apricot, white + teal, fuchsia + light pink, gold + plum. They stay on even with out primer.

I love the color of the balance and boost. It’s a pinky peach and is much darker that the image. I use it as an all over face color; it really warms up your face! The container works really well (I have one for the regular mineral veil too), only a small amount at a time is dispensed. Less mess.

I thought I’d treat myself to this set. The eye make up remover was very gentile even if it was a bit oily. It worked really well with no scrubbing. The pencil stayed on fine no smudging, but I’ll need to get a sharpener. The lip color was very bright but if used lightly makes a great stain. The only thing I didn’t care for was the primer shadow. It looked similar to a pink I had in another set but isn’t sold separately. It ended up being very glittery.

sharpen?
do you have to physically sharpen this pencil or does it auto sharpen when you twist it up?
I never do, it's thin enough. It dose come with a built in sharpener if you need it.

What blush would be good for me?
I'm looking for a good blush for me as I am very fair skinned. I don't want to look like a clown without the nose?
I use the lightest foundation BE has and I look for blush shades that are translucent. Vintage peach is my new favorite. I stay away from anything too brown or reddish.

Is this the same formulation as the original?
Is this just a change in packaging?
I'd have to say no. Maybe to get it to squeeze through the new container they made it thinner. The old formula had a thicker consistency that this just doesn’t have.

Why can't we get smoky violet eye color as a regular size single piece. I love this color and have tried to combine other colors to get the right.
Please bring this in as a regular color. I love it so much. Thanks
I know! Bring in the jar and have the staff try and find you something similar. I found Soul Sister close but with sparkle.

Is it better to use matte eye colors if you are older?
I am wondering if shimmering eye shadows make wrinkles more visible. I have always used matte colors and would like to try a shimmering color, but, don't want aging to be more visible.
There are three kinds of BE eye shadow textures; matt, sheen and glimmer. I’ve found certain sheen colors make my eye creases more visible. Glimmer if not foiled seems to open up my eye a bit more, as if I place a lighter color shadow in the center of my lower lid. Matt colors are always good. I usually wear a darker matt color on my lower lid or crease, a glimmer on the lower lid from the inside corner of the eye to the center and a light sheen color above the crease (less wrinkles there). Glimmer shadows also make it easy to do a one shadow color eye. For this I use a medium shade glimmer starting at the base and blend it lighter as I reach the brow, sometimes adding a line of shadow (with and eyeliner brush) at the base of the lashes. I hope this helps!

How long will this liner last?
My skin can become oily throughout the day & w/other pencil liners, the liner melts & forms a line where my crease folds. Therefore I started to wear waterproof liquid eyeliner, but I wanted to switch my liner to bare essentials. Will this liner last the entire day?
Being a more natural product it doesn’t have the same staying power that a petroleum based eyeliner dose. I use it only on my top lid and set it first with a base of eye primer and then loose eyeliner or eye shadow powder.
