Phrases Chosen: gorgeous, tempting
I refuse to consider myself a lip gloss addict anymore. I'm reformed. The drawer full of old glosses I never use anymore is proof of that. Let's be honest - how many times have you bought a plumping gloss, or a shiny shimmery gloss, only to find it sticky? Or that it had a strange taste about it? Those are all filed away in that dusty storage drawer. In my purse though, Katie and Amber. Amber gives a light shimmer with a very natural tone - it blends in with my skintone. Katie gives a beautiful, light and playful pink hue. Either of these glosses is a great choice for color and shine, and I'm eager to try some more! Unlike lesser glosses, the Buxom line not only looks good, but leaves your lips feeling conditioned - without a sticky, icky sensation!

Phrases Chosen: buildable, natural, soft, gorgeous, never feels cakey!
The title might sound like an advertisement, but I am a huge fan of this foundation. I have combination skin that is prone to a mega-watt shine throughout the t-zone. Not only is this downright fun to apply (there's something much more meditative about the swirl/tap/buff routine compared to plopping and slathering liquid foundation all over), it really truly works! The coverage with the matte foundation is wonderfully buildable, but feels light. When I go without any makeup, I generally start to feel oily after a few hours. Amazingly, not only do I not feel oily wearing the Matte foundation, I don't start to look oily either. If you're tired of having to stock up on blotting papers and repowder your face throughout the day, try this - you will not regret it!

I find myself using this brush for my blush more than I do for overall face coverage. It's great for working with the angles of my cheekbones and blending color in.

My go-to wonder brush!

Phrases Chosen: great coverage, perfect for small areas
I have small, yet defined bone structure. While I do own flawless face brushes and kabuki brushes, this Baby Buki has become my favorite brush hands down. I am able to ensure coverage over every area of my face, especially my nose (normally prone to eventual shine). The coverage I get with this mini might is absolutely phenomenal, and lasts all day. The only thing I use my larger brushes for now is a quick mineral veil dusting.... the backbone of my brushes is definitely the Baby Buki!

Does this work with fairly light skin tones?
I have used so many types of blush that look okay in the container. Sometimes when i put it on it looks too light or too dark. I just want it to look natural and blend in well with my skin.
BareMinerals blush is great because it is amazingly buildable. I believe it will work very well for you for just that reason. The trick is in adding only a tiny amount to the lid before the swirl/tap/buff process (and of course, using a light/fluffy brush - I like the angled face or angled blush brush). The amount of blush in the lid should be so little - far less than even quarter the size of a water droplet - that when you swirl the brush in, it disappears completely. If you need more color when you buff it on, you can buff again. By lightly layering the color, it really is natural looking - and none of the abrupt lines and borders of color that can come from pressed blushes!

Does the Full Coverage Kabuki Brush really work?
Does the brush give full coverage over redness and bumps? I have acne on my cheeks and my face is really red so does it work?
I find that the kabuki brush really does give great coverage - I prefer the baby buki based on my facial structure, but a kabuki brush in general will give good coverage because it is very dense. To most effectively reduce the redness of acne, I would try preconcealing using the full coverage concealer brush with a powder in a shade lighter than that of your foundation. For my medium skin tone the Well Rested seems to work well, but there are also multiple shades of Bisque available too.

is this brush for the warmth?
is this brush to spread the warmth on your face
I wouldn't recommend this for Warmth - this brush provides a lot of product coverage, so it's great for the foundation. I personally use the angled face brush for warmth - it gives a lighter product dispersion that you may then build up to increase the amount of color obtained from the warmth application.
