Lovely product!
Rating: 
4 / 5
4 / 5
Pros: less is more, great coverage, smooths lines
Cons: product may leak
It took me a little while to figure out how much was enough to apply, and I found that less was more...just a couple of dots to start with. I patted it in with my middle finger, and I was impressed with the coverage, especially for my allergic shiners. Stayed in place without caking in my lines.
The only con: the packaging/applicator could be better. This product will quickly accumulate around the cap and get into the threads where the cap screws on. This will cause the product to leak while the cap is closed. To remedy this, I used clean fingers to remove the accumulated product from the threads and patted it in the eye area. I hope BE remedies this issue. It is the only reason why I did not award 5 stars.

I Decided to Give This a Try...
Rating: 
5 / 5
5 / 5
Pros: lightweight, hydrating, nice coverage, easy on the complexion
Cons: none!
...and I'm glad I did!!!
All it takes is a pea-sized amount. I use a brush, and it goes on flawlessly. I use it like a foundation.
A word to the wise...give it a couple of minutes after you apply it; then apply contouring bronzer, blush, and veil. My skin looks bright, natural and glowing, and this lasts.
My skin tends to be oily in the T-zone, and my experience with this product is that less is more, and allowing it to set briefly before applying anything else does the trick.
This has become my favorite product.

Pros: moisturizing, sheer, conditioning, foolproof, natural, lovely
I chose the Loud and Clear Berry Remix as a free gift on a recent order. I am so glad that I did! With our recent cold weather, my lips were getting chapped, and the condition of my lips improved immediately. Nice fragrance, sheer, and with the right touch of color. I have been using this nearly every day, and I am quickly finding this indispensable. While it is slick going on, it does not get tacky.
Perfect for that natural look.

Pros: effective, fast, gentle, miraculous, invisible
Wow. Simply Wow.
I am a sixty-something woman with combination skin who still gets the occasional outbreak of acne. I have never, ever seen anything that stops a zit like this. Ever. It doesn't stink. It does not cake. It is unobtrusive. It is magical. The irritation stops almost immediately. The skin heals beautifully. The zit(s) disappear.
Don't you dare discontinue this. This is an essential part of my routine.

Pros: must-have, essential, light, perfect
Just bought this a few days ago, and I am hooked. This is an incredible primer AND concealer. Glides on effortlessly, and does a great job of keeping my eyeshadow intact, as well as filling in those little lines underneath my eyes without looking cakey. I use this under my other concealer to match my color, and I am set for the day.
Total keeper.

Comfort Zone? So much more than that!
Rating:

Pros: beautifully natural!, perfect for summer!, gorgeous shades., not to be passed up!
During the summer, I like to look as if I am bare-faced, but don't want to be bare-faced. I want to look polished, but natural. I picked up The Comfort Zone at my local BE boutique, and I am still not finished playing with it.
Business or casual, or even for an evening out, this quad can give you a really pretty smoky eye that is perfect for this brunette. This combo would look lovely on anyone.

A new essential product!

5 / 5
Pros: light, smooth, perfect
I bought this just a couple of days ago, and have been wearing this every day since.
I am a true believer. It goes on smoothly, has a very light feel as opposed to the Original Primer, and gives my skin a lovely finish once I have applied my makeup. I feel like I do not need to use as much foundation, and everything goes on like silk. I don't get that breakthrough shine; just a nice glow.
I didn't know I was missing this. Who knew?

Not just for Mineral Veil...
Rating: 
4 / 5
4 / 5
Pros: soft, compact, versatile
I got this in a kit for Mineral Veil, but put it away because I had other brushes. I found it again when I was looking for a brush to put in my after-gym makeup bag. I have been using this for the Ready foundation, and it is perfect! it is soft and densely bristled, and picks up the foundation like a magnet. Definitely a keeper!

Pros: smooth
This has become my favorite lipstick. It goes on smoothly, and does not dry out my lips. The shade is perfect for me. I also love this case. It does not undo itself accidentally and make a mess inside my purse.
I've done worse. It will take something to do much better.

Rating:

5 / 5
Pros: great color! nice coverage., smooth.
I got a tube of Lean on Me as part of a kit, and I am delighted that it is going to be available in stores. I use this like a lipstick. I love the color. I love the coverage. I love the staying power and how it feels on my lips. I can't wait to try the new shades.
Just twist up ONLY the amount that will provide coverage, because you cannot twist it back into the tube. Not a deal breaker for me, but could prove to be a bummer for the uninitiated.

Is this just as "silky feeling" as the regular primer?
I love how the original primer feels - I am wondering if this feels the same?
Totally silky. You will love it.

I use the nourishing moisturizer now, should the BB Primer-Cream go over the moisturizer or use BB instead of the moisturizer?
Should BB Primer-Cream be used instead of nourishing moisturizer or over it?
The skin in my t-zone is oily, and I have had no problems with this product over a moisturizer.

Would you still need to put on moisurizer before using this primer?

If this is supposed to be used for Mineral Veil, do you add it to the brush someewhere? I bought this & can't figure it out. It's a waste of money.
I can't figure out how/if Mineral Veil is added to the brush or if it holds Mineral Veil somewhere. It's a waste of my money as far as I can tell.
It does neither. You would shake the mineral veil into the cap and swirl and tap the brush like you would any other brush. The brush is also amazing with the Ready Mineral Veil or foundation.

How on earth do you make this brush retract? Just got it along with the Mineral Veil and nothing retracts.
This is just a brush with lid. Looks like the picture on the website, says "Buff & Go" on it, but it won't twist or anything in order to get it to retract. Help!
You pull up the barrel of the brush from the base when you are done and replace the cap. It doesn't twist.

Is this brush best used on loose or solid mineral veil powder?
Is this brush best for loose or for solid mineral veil powder?
I have been using this with the Ready foundation, and it works like a dream! I am sure it would work very well with the Ready Mineral Veil as well.

Does this lipstick have a strong vanilla smell
I do not do well with vanilla so I would not purchase if there is a strong vanilla smell.
I did not notice a vanilla smell.
