Older under eyes finally get a break!

Phrases Chosen: smooth gentle wonderful
I just turned 50 and find that powder concealers crease in my under eye area adding to an older crinkly look. Liquid concealers are about the same because the skin is getting very thin under my eyes. This product however, glides on smooth, stays smooth, doesn't sit in creases and brightens so I only need a very thin hint of powder cover for which mineral veil is perfect. I'm really hoping there is some bleaching because much to my chagrin I am getting those age spots under my eyes now too. Even if it won't bleach the age spots, I will definitely buy this product again.

The IT Mascara!!
Rating

Better than any mascara I've had in a long time possibly ever. Is it the brush, the formula the combination of the two ... who knows it's great. It lengthens without clumping! No clumps! And absolutely no FLACKING even when I use primer! It comes off with water and a light cleanser. I don't need some special formula that can lift tar off a road to get it off. It dries in a timely manner too, so I can do my bottom lashes and not have spiders on my eyelids, yippee. This product makes me very happy. If someone said I had to take only one make up piece with me and leave the rest - this would be the item I take with me.
Thank you BE!

Lovely colour in every way. Very safe to go for this one, I can't see it failing on any skin tone. It shimmers a light purpley-blue if the light hits it just right, not tacky - won't make you look like "Mimi" on the Drew Carey show. A youthful colour but works on the over 40 too.

Phrases Chosen: classy, sophisticated
I got this colour because of all the great reviews. When I first saw it in real life I was horribly disappointed until I saw it on my eyes. What an amazing colour, it really woke my eyes up and added a very classy and sophisticated look. It does something for a cool tone person (me) and makes my brown eyes a deeper brown and the whites in my eyes seem brighter.
I have medium-light skin tone and dark brown hair, I'm always careful not to weigh my face down with too much colour and this works really well.
I think this colour will work well for summer and winter, a total score! Love it.

Totally cool eye colour! I can also wear it on my cheeks as a little hit of colour and sparkle. Great for office, sport or party this is a very versatile colour.

Does this product really need a review or aren't we all clear on the fact this is the best freakin make up ever!
Liquid foundations seems to turn to an oil slick on my face and after a day of wearing it I feel like Dome petroleum could set up a derek on my face - not with BE make up though. I will never switch back - BE is it for life.
I can golf all day in the sun as well and come to the 19th hole looking fabulous. Thank you BE!

S - Kitten/Shimmer - not working for this gal ...
Rating

Interesting, maybe I need to learn how to use it but it seems to get lost on me. I have brown hair with red-ish highlights and brown eyes, fair to medium skin. It goes best on under the bottom lashes but on the eyelid it doesn't seem to work. The lady at Sephor didn't recommend it either as it wouldn't make my eyes pop. It's such a rich wonderful colour though ... sadly she was right.
There's some dark powder there so it can look halloweenish - or like a kid that got into mom's make up. The glitter/shimmer makes it tough to control as an all over colour or as a highlight. I like matt colours for smoky eyes as I can control the darkness. I tried foiling as well but that's not good for day wear.
I won't buy it again and hate to rate the colour a three just because it doesn't work on me but it is a quality product.

Quality of the product is top notch and plentiful. The colour however is just not right for me. Not sure how that could be I've been assessed as doing well with "winter" colours, but this makes me look like a kid that got into mom's make-up. I love a dab of Queen Phyliss" in the corner of my eyes and on the top of my cheek bones and under the brow but this colour just doesn't work. I have dark brown hair, brown eyes and medium light complexion and tend to burn easily - perhaps my base tone is too pink for this pink?

Best eye colour I have tried in my 30 years of wearing make-up! It goes with everything and the intensity can be controlled - add a little or a bit more for a holiday sparkle. I can't wait for summer to sparkle in the sun with all my golf partners. Yay, me! Thank you BE!

I bought this for myself, but my teen daughter (13) has scooped it up for herself. It's the best pimple remedy I've ever used without leaving a film, tightening, burning or any of the other side effects of the cremes and goops out there. I ordered three more to keep up to demand in my house, perhaps BE could make a larger container?!

Questions
 
Firms skin and reduces the appearance of wrinkles.
 
Is your product good for wrinkles? I understand methylparaben is not that good for skin, why is it in your product?
Methylparaben creates allergic reactions in many people and is a chemical taken out of many products. Why is it in your product? It does create a terrible reaction on my mom skins, I'm concerned about spending $100 on a product with paraben in it, can you tell my why it's in there and if I should be concerned.
