Pros: subtle, enlightening
I was worried about looking like a lady of the night with this being to high shine, but they are just right. They don't fully color your lashes like I was afraid and just gave a subtle hint of sparkle to my eyes. Almost celestial in fact...
Over top of the Flawless Definition Volumizing Mascara, this is absolutely gorgeous. The Black Diamond one made my blue eyes unavoidable to passerbys.
Another fantastic BE eye product!!!

Pros: brilliant
This brush is PERFECT for creating a smoky eye...swirl the tip in your liner shadow then tap and run along top and bottom lashes for perfect amount of liner without making it look like you have racoon eyes. For added drama make the outer corner of your eye heavier than the lash lines in a sideways V shape. Supurb liner brush!

Pros: illuminating
this is the same formula as the Active Triple Treatment Eye Cream but better!!! It is more firming and makes me look actually awake in the morning!
Even though I'm young it's still important to me to prevent premature aging so I use this daily. I LOVE it!
I loved my eye cream before and now that it's more firming I love it even more! Still refreshing (especially if placed in the refrigerator) and still delicate....even better than before.

Pros: convenient
I never thought I would buy these...my logic: *why would I buy these when I can just dip a q-tip into my eye makeup remover?* well!!! these are nice to carry when you travel instead of making your q-tips unsanitary and having to carry the whole bottle of remover.
Worth the $5 and if you're really close to the free shipping...why not spend the $6 on something safe for your eyes instead of postage?
Removes your makeup without smudging anything unwanted....all in all well worth the money, lasts longer than you'd think.

Pros: versatile, fun
Frost is my favorite of the High Shines. I like to use it when I am doing a smoky eye that I want to play up and make my own. I use the Heavenly Liner Brush to apply it lightly over top of my Onyx Liner Shadow. It is also the base color before I put on my Black Ice Eye Color. These products have made the most stunning eye look I've ever had. Absolutely sensational!

Pros: necessary
I've used this product with my foundation since day one. It just went hand in hand, like Bert and Ernie. One day, in a rush, I forgot to apply this. It was more obvious than I could have imagined. It made a huge difference in the luminosity and stay power of my foundation. Never again will I let myself skip this step in my routine. Without this product, you're missing out on the full potential of your makeup!

Pros: ok
This eyeliner doesn't stand out to me. It goes on nicely and has good color but it doesn't have stay power and isn't anything that some other pencils equal up to. The first few times I used this, it just made my eyes water really bad (which has never happened to me) making me have to reapply three times before I could finally walk out the door. I like the product but not any more than I like other pencil liners I've used. I'm going to stick with the liner shadow (amazing).

Pros: convenient
As if BE products didn't last long enough! If you use the lip brush as opposed to direct application of 100% Natural Lip Colors, you control the amount of product going on your lips AND it helps to avoid feathering (and unsightly tooth-to-lipstick contact). The lid just makes it that much more worth it. If you're a lip-addict, you need this brush!

Pros: perfect balance
I have been "blessed" with the incredible gift of dry AND acne prone skin. I've always resorted to harsh washed (meant for men) to get rid of my breakouts and had to put the dryness on the backburner. I tried out the Purifying Facial Cleanser and it significantly helped with the dryness but did nothing as far as my blemishes. I was offered the Deep Cleansing Foam and was skeptical that it would just be mediocre and do a little bit for both.
I was wrong.
This is the first product EVER that I have tried that doesn't mutilate the moisture in my skin and actually keeps the breakouts at bay. It is incredible and I wouldn't trade it for anything. It doesn't over-exfoliate like some cleansers, so it keeps my skin from being extra dry while it's helping my face clear up. This, in conjunction with the Purely Nourishing Cream for Dry Skin, is one of the things in life I will never stray from. I would give up everything else in my skin regiment if it meant keeping those two products.

How does this differ from the old Raremineral Night treatment?
I have used B.E.'s raremineral night treatment pretty much since Leslie introduced the product, and have wonderful results from it. I am just wondering how this new version is different from the original. Is it simply the delivery system, or are there ingredient changes as well? Any feedback would be most appreciated!
It is exactly the same formula, just different (more sanitary) packaging. No worries!

Is Golden Deep as dark as Deepest Deep?
I usually wear Deepest Deep, but I am thinking about switching to Golden Deep; how drastic is the change between the two shades?
They are in the same shade family but they have different undertones. If you look at your veins and have a slight greenish look to them then the Golden Deep will be fine.

What color foundation should I try?
I use Golden Medium foundation but it is never an available choice in any of the kits. I have tried Medium and Medium Beige and have even combined the two and neither is right. Can I use Medium Tan or will it be too dark?
Medium Tan won't just be too dark, it will also be the entirely wrong undertone. It is a cool undertone (meaning pink) whereas you are the exact opposite with warm undertones (olive/golden). Medium Tan will definitely not work.
The customizable Get Started Kits have all 20 shades available, I would suggest getting that so you are getting the right shade.

Lotion Underneath?
I have combination skin and love the feeling and effects of prime time, but my skin still needs some moisturizing (especially in the winter) along with prime time - If I put lotion on first, and then the prime time, will it block the prime time from being able to fully penetrate my skin and limit its full benefits?
Or should I switch to the Skin Rever-Upper instead of Prime Time, since it is also moisturizing?
Moisturizer is vital. You need it just as much as a cleanser! Prime Time is formulated to work with our moisturizer; in fact, it's supposed to be placed on top of absorbed moisturizer.

How is the new facial cleansing products different from the current?
How is the new facial cleansing products different from the current?
What the idea behind the cleansers was, is that every woman is different in every way, including what they look for in a cleanser. Some women prefer deep clean (Deep Cleansing Foam and Exfoliating Treatment Cleanser) whereas some crave the moisture and gentility (Purifying Facial Cleanser). Beyond those decisions, humans are really touch-oriented, so people prefer different textures of what goes on their face. If you like exfoliation you'd go for the Exfoliating Treatment Cleanser; if you like to have softer clean feeling it's the Purifying Facial Cleanser; if you want the squeeky clean feeling without the harsher exfoliation it'd be the Deep Cleansing Foam. Hope this helped!!

Can I get a black/brown mascara and brown eyeliner with the Pearls Collection?
I don't like the way I look wearing black eyeliner and mascara, I feel am too old to be wearing black mascara and eyeliner this is why most kits are not quite right for me. Also, I have straight eyelashes and your mascara does not quite work for me unless it is the Volumizing Mascara with the big bristles. I have noticed that your kits includes the black mascara with the real tiny, skinny bristles. Is there anyway to modify the kits for us more mature customers, as far as color and style of mascara goes, which would best fit our needs? I am already a member with your club, I made a large purchase of your product late last year and I am loving it, however, I cannot wear the black eyeliner or the black mascara with the tiny thin bristles for reasons mentioned earlier. Thanks and best wishes.
Because the kits come prepackaged, they can't be altered. The other products are well worth the money though, so I would just get the products you're worried about separately...you'll be glad you did!

I have super dark brown eyes and hair and a light medium color. Do you think the Sydney collection would work?
dark blue dark brown eyes Exotic Destinations Sydney
These collections are put together with everyone in mind...but that's not always the whole truth as far as how they really work out. However!!! Sydney is an incredible collection. Since you have very dark eyes, just the Sydney Eyecolor alone will be amazing for you (especially if you use a wet application). The Bondi Beach liner will draw attention to them as well with its dark ocean blue color. It won't offset your beautiful browns I promise!

New deep cleansing foam
Which of your new cleansers (the deep cleansing or the other one that is released to members 2/10-2/11 for advance viewing) is best for dry skin?
The Purifying Facial Cleanser is your best bet for dry skin. It's really gentle (but does its job as a cleanser). It actually feels like it adds moisture to your skin, and you'll be amazed when you step out of the shower WITHOUT that irritating tightness.
