5 out of 5
Phrases Chosen: elegant, striking, luminous
The brushes alone are worth the price of this collection.
Everything you need for a complete makeup look is here. If you are new to Bare Minerals or want to give a gift that will thoroughly introduce someone to the Bare Minerals line this set will set you up nicely.
The addition of real pearls in this makeup really make it feel luxurious. There is just this glow on your skin and the colors really light up. It feels like a special occasion every time I use this set.

Flowers blush is the one I have to keep an eye on, it somehow ends up trying to go home with all my friends and siblings! I am very pale and this is an amazing color on me. It also looks amazing with a tan.

Phrases Chosen: perfect shape, natural looking application
I use this brush everyday with every blush I own. Something about the way it is shaped makes it ideal for applying blush in a subtle, natural looking way.

This gloss feels wonderful and comes in sophisticated packaging that does not look out of place in a serious makeup collection. There are colors to suit everyone and the gloss can be perfect alone or over lipstick.

Phrases Chosen: adds depth without darkness, perfect for a 'light' smokey eye
I love this color because I love to create a smokey eye look without using the stereotypical dark colors. I am very pale and heavy blacks and browns overwhelm my eyes and make me look like a wet raccoon. I use Celestine as a base or blend it in with heavier colors to lighten them up without losing intensity.

Disappointing
Rating
3 out of 5
3 out of 5
Phrases Chosen: strange texture, inconsistant application, not as good as the original primer
When I saw this product I was super excited, it looked nice when the girl at the BareMinerals boutique put it on her hand so I bought it. The product does not apply smoothly and is difficult to blend it kind of smears and some areas seem more intense with other areas left with little or no coverage. It also did not improve the appearance of the eyeshadow the way the original eyelid primer did.

Intense but gentle

Phrases Chosen: intense color, washes off easily, no clumps, gentle
I have sensitive eyes and delicate lashes that are next to invisible. As soon as I tried the flawless definition mascara I had to buy it. It coats my lashes without smothering them and each little lash magically appears defined, not drowned. This mascara also seems to wash off much more gently than my other waterproof mascaras.

Phrases Chosen: intense, colorful, messy
I love the high color and shine but the applicator/package always leaves me with eyeshadow falling off the eyelid and into my under-eye bags so I apply it with a separate brush to keep things more under control

 Blush - Flowers
Blush - Flowers
Naturally good-for-you cheek color.
 
Which shade of blush would work best on medium skin tone, flowers or fruit cocktail?
I am currently using warmth which gives me a tanned appearance, but I am looking for a blush that will give me a more rosy cheeks "blushing" look.
Flowers! I have used Flowers on super pale to super dark skin tones with great results. Start by buffing in a small amount at a time until you get the desired results.

what would be the best liner to go with the 7 layer cake lipgloss?
i am purchasing the 7 layer cake lip gloss. i'm wondering what you would recommend as the best color liner.
A color that matches your natural lip color is best. Liner of any color will help hold the gloss on, but a color close to your natural color with gloss over it will make your lips look more plump.

Dose this wash off ?
Dose this wash off with soap and water or will I need eye makeup remover?
The brush can be washed with the Quick Change brush cleaner, the Well Cared for brush cleaner or gentle soap.
