I La-La-LOVE this product

I really love this product!!! I received a couple pads in a sample from a boutique in Chicago back in March. I tried out the sample the next few days and have to say that I saw an immediate difference in my skin. I literally had a "glow" to my skin that not only I noticed but my friends did as well. It helped reduce some of the red irritated spots I have on my skin as well as gave me a fine smooth looking finish. My face also felt refreshed after application. A couple of quick notes about this product. I only use this product at night after washing with the exfoliating treatment cleanser. After using a glow pad on my face, I usually follow up with a moisturizer as well. Next the pad has two different sizes that can be utilized, a smooth softer size, verses a bumpy exfoliating side. Each is great, however i tend to use the smoother side from day to day and use the exfoliating side once a week or so. Lastly, as much as I love these pads I was initially going through them quickly. I got an idea from a sales associate to cut the pads in half, since the pads are pretty well saturated. This idea was brilliant and has definitely prolonged the longevity of my stock. This product is a really good one, a tad bit more pricey and you can go through them quickly; just be aware they can be quite addictive. I have already recommended this to my friends and I have received nothing but positive feedback from them.

I absolutely love these two colors!!! Having tan skin its always been difficult for me to find eye shadows that are not only pretty but once applied keep their same rich colors. This specific palette will not let you down if you find yourself in my boat. My favorite of the two has to be Nirvana, I seem to be going through that much faster. It's a great color that can be swept across the lid and honestly just worn by itself for a simple yet natural look, the little specks catch the light which adds a bit more "umph" your eye shadow. Utopia is a matte deep green color that I use literally every day. With this color I usually highlight outer edge of my eye lids creating a "V" which allow for a more dramatic look. The color blends nicely into Nirvana (or any other shadow) and helps create a layered color. You can apply more of this darker color to create a more dramatic look, or just lightly add it for a casual day look. I honestly use this palette every day, sometimes I switch up Nirvana (since I am running low) and use a loose BE eye shadow "Zany" LOVE LOVE LOVE that color as well. Instead of the almost orange base that nirvana has "Zany" is more of a gold. I just wish that "Paradise Found" came with a larger size of Nirvana, or refills. BOTTOM LINE!!! I love this palette!!! it's my absolute favorite eye shadows and I have finally found a shadow duo that looks great on my skin!!!

I have been using the exfoliating treatment for almost 2 years now and I can truly say that I love it. This product is gentle enough to use daily for both day and night, or it can be used once every few days as strictly an exfoliant. When i first started using the product I was fascinated with the idea of using a powder instead of a cream as a fascial cleanser. Then i realized there were so many different ways you could use this product. By adding some water to the powder you could create a nice smooth and creamy lather that is gentle yet throughly cleans your face. After my face doesn't feel dry instead it feels smooth, soft and just enough moisture. The powder can also be used as a fascial mask by adding a tiny bit of water, applying to your face and letting it sit anywhere between 5-10 minutes. I do this every few days. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone. I couple this with the deep cleansing foam and have found the two to be a great combination together.

Disappointed

Having been a long time BE enthusiast I was extremely disappointed with this new set of eye liners. Many have already expressed their past love for the Big and Bright collection and disappointment with this new round the clock eyeliner; I would have to agree with them. I was very optimistic hoping that this would be a great new product however that was not the case at all. The positives were that I really do like this color (closest to mocha for the big and bright). The color also goes on smoothly which is nice. However, these pencils do not sharpen very well, its hard to get a nice defined tip. The blunt end causes fat noticeable lines instead of the more discrete natural lines that I prefer. I am constantly sharpening my pencil in order to achieve this look but I never get the same effect I got with the big and bright. This may be a bit random but I noticed that putting my eyeliner in the freezer for 10 minutes before sharpening helped create at sharper tip, just be careful not to use too much pressure when sharpening of you can break the tip. Also this liner doesn't smudge very well, which can be nice at time, but its difficult to blend with eye shadows. Sadly I wouldn't recommend buying this eyeliner. Hoping they will bring back the BIG and BRIGHT collection...

If I am currently using the purifying facial cleanser and bought the exfoliating treatment cleanser, how often should I use the exfoliating cleanser?
I wash my face twice a day and would like to start exfoliating. I am not sure how often I should exfoliate my face or if I need both cleansers twice a day.
I have both the exfoliating cleanser and the deep cleansing foam. What I have found that works well for me is using the cleaning foam in the morning and using the exfoliating cleanser at night. I prefer the exfoliating cleanser at night which does a really good job at getting rid of all my make-up, sweat, etc from the day. On the other hand the deep cleansing foam is a tad bit more mild which is why I like this product in the morning. Sometimes when my face really needs a good rub down i'll use the two together, put a little bit of both in my hand, add a bit of water, rub together and then apply directly to my face. I believe this little routine could work well for both the purifying facial cleanser and the exfoliating treatment cleanser.

I just purchased this eyeliner and can't figure out if it sharpens or how you would use it once the tip is worn down.
If you are unable to post the answer could you at least send me the answer? Otherwise I will want to return the product because 15 dollars is too much to spend for that tiny tip of eyeliner.
Thank you!
I have the same problem i like a sharper tip when applying my eye liner. I found that putting your eye liner in the freezer for about 10 minutes before sharpening helps. I had to buy a sharpener since this new set didn't come with one, the one I bought was form CVS and cost around $2. Hopefully this helps.

Removal
How difficult is it to remove the eyeliner at the end of the day?
I don't have a difficult time removing this product. I actually just use eye make up remover, slightly saturated in a cotton ball and then dab off the product.
