Comfort Zone? So much more than that!

Phrases Chosen: 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.

Phrases Chosen: 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...

Phrases Chosen: 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!

Phrases Chosen: 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.

Phrases Chosen: 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.

What a perfect set!

Phrases Chosen: warm, natural, essential
This set was demo'd to me at one of the boutiques, and I love everything in this kit. I use the bronzer to define my cheekbones, along the side of my nose, and the bottom of my chin. The luminizer is a nice touch to finish the cheekbones. Once I'm done, I see no need for blush.
I hope that the lip balm is kept on as a permanent addition to the BE collection. I use it as a lipstick.
Just a word to those who have never used the Ready products: a little goes a long way, and I mean that in a very good way.

Phrases Chosen: natural. light. effective., amazing! naturally perfect!, a little dab will do ya!
I went to my local BE boutique specifically to test the new concealers. I have dark allergic shiners, and desperately needed a fix. Your powder concealer did not work for me and accentuated the lines under my eyes.
My BE sales consultant put some underneath my eyes, and I was convinced! The shade is perfect. The coverage was better than anything else I have ever tried. Ever! My lines were minimized, and while my "shiners" were not completely gone, the light deflecting properties of this product reduced the darkness almost completely. This product is light, moisturizing, and I have yet to retouch it once applied.
This is quite possibly the best product you've put out. No. It IS the best product you've put out.

Phrases Chosen: versatile
This is an absolutely lovely shade. I use this primarily as an eyelid color, and it works beautifully with other crease colors. It can be used for a truly glamorous evening look, or it can be the basis for a nice, natural daytime look. Brush some Grace over top of this shadow, and the effect is stunning. You cannot go wrong with this shade.

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.

I've been using a moisturizer, and the result is still very nice.

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.
