Phrases Chosen: shear, sparkly, feels good, taste good, shinny
I'm med-tan skin & this color doesn't really show up on me. It just gives a good shine with a touch of sparkle, almost not it.
And I have really nice stains in every color (other brand) but the problem with those is even though they have good color & they last ALL day....they're not gloss & shinny...BLAH!
Problem sovled -
I layered this on top of a couple coats of good stain & it gives me glossy, sparkly color that is BEAUTIFUL & last all day with just a few touch ups of gloss that I can do without even looking in a mirror.
Very convenient for a busy mom on the go that doesn't always have the time to stop what I'm doing & get a mirror to make sure my colored lip product is going on even & not smearing all over the place.
A+ for product quality, smell, feel, taste!

BRING BACK BUZZ LATT'E!!!
I cant tell you how much i LOVE LOVE LOVE the Buzz Latt'e. I wear nothing else WHEN i have it but I dont use the minerals fast enough, either on my eyes or lips, to warrant buying a WHOLE new kit every time I run out of the balm. This seems like a common complaint so what the deal BE team?
Why the hold out on the Buzz Latt'e...? Its sooooo wildly popular theres no reason to NOT make it available for purchase separately.
I can honestly say that making BUZZ LATT'E only available in the kit is the ONE thing you guys have done wrong!
And that goes for the BFF lip balm too! FREE THE BALM'S!!!
Make all the balms available for purchase separately!

Phrases Chosen: must have
Best BE product I've found thus far!
I am a BUSY working mom of 4 & often don't get much sleep or very restful sleep. Unfortunately I must interact with clients daily & sometime at ungodly ours over video conferencing so I must look rested at all times. This product has been a good send to my eyes! I am very tan during summer & Im still able to use it just fine. I just use my Honey Bisque concealer over the top.
If you have bag, circles, darkness TRY this product.
I would just suggest trying it a few times at home first. It took me a couple times of using it to get the right amount of product vs buffing to achieve perfection.

Got this as a gift.
I personally didn't notice any difference using the Blemish Therapy part of the kit.
The Bisque is a great product in & of itself but I am a Honey Bisque & the Summer Bisque is the darkest shade available in this kit & its just way to light for my skin.
But if you like the Blemish Therapy & have a lighter skintone then Tan this is a great deal!

So pretty but really not "peach" color family
Rating

5 out of 5
Phrases Chosen: summer color, great on bronze look, pretty with green eyes, not a peach color
I have been using this color since I found it earlier this year & I don't see how its a "peach" color family at all. It would call it a bronze or dark gold maybe eye a brown family personally.
I also just discovered that the Prime Time Primer Shadow in "Sundance" is a perfect matching color (which is also referred to as "peach" but I question that as well)
Maybe its just my skintone & these look peachy on some people but on my very Olive skin its a very pretty bronze color & pulls my green eye in the most amazing way!
It sounds crazy I know but at a 80's party i went to recently we used Beautiful Autumn & a warm purple color that I cant find the name of now & it was CRAZY pretty. I use it in a much lighter fashionas a day look now & then, its mybe not a everyday office look if you are a lawyer or something uber professional but I cant tell you how may compliments I get on it.
Bottom line - experiment & have fun ladies.

Phrases Chosen: light, shear
Margarita, Melonie, Cherry are the summer "Tint" versions.
As much as I love all the Buxom lip glosses I was a little disappointed in these because I felt the 'tint' in the name was misleading. They are bright but shear & light, super pretty especially for summer, however they are NOT tints.
I have many many tints from all different brands & i love the ease of tint because I hate reapplying throughout the day. So when I saw these I snatched them up as fats as I could. I will use them anyways because they are great, true to Buxom product but I was kinda bummed when I realized they weren't real tints.

I gotta say I love love love all the Buxom lip glosses i just having to reapply so when I saw this one & it was called a tint, I jumped all over it for summer because I LOVE the ease of tints.
Well it lives up to the Buxom name & its a very pretty color, nice & bright for summer but it doesn't really tint your lips. So for that reason I was a little disappointed, hence the 3 stars, I feel the title is a bit misleading, but I still love it.
It is a bit light & shear so it doesnt really show up THAT well when Im super tan. Its more fitting for medium shade skin. But its still really pretty.

Great for yellow/gold skintones but...
Rating
4 out of 5
4 out of 5
I have a very yellow/golden/olive skintone but I really dont have a any major redness issues however I do get redness & have some minor broken capillaries around my nose area. Summer or Honey Bisque works well to cover & hide but it still wasnt flawless like I'd like. When I found this product I had been using a redness solutions compact by Clinique but it just wasnt strong enough for me. Since my skin is very yellow I felt like I needed a stronger pigmented product & since I am a total BE girl & this one was a fair bit more yellow & a loose powder which I feel gives you more control OF COURSE it was in my basket as fast as I could grab it!
I've used it for a while now & I am amazed at the coverage this offers for my minor redness. It completely hides the broken capillaries area around my nose & I even use it on my eye are with the BE maximum coverage concealer brush before I use any other eye products.
Recently I was out on the water & got VERY sunburnt on my face. To make things worse I had sunglasses on so I had a distinct pattern of sunburn. I used this product with the handy buki brush just on the ares of burn before my foundation & it helped tremendously to even it out. You could still obviously tell I had a sunburn but with this on it didnt look 1 tenth as bad as it really was.
CONS - my sister has mild rosacea & she has a light, very pink skintone, & it just didnt cut it for her, washed her out, didnt cover the red adequately with out really packing the product on & then it just looked funky.
Also as I started tanning heavily & got very very dark (BE Golden Tan foundation) it almost is to light & seems to be very noticeable under my foundation. Looks like I used a wrong shade concealer. I have to make an extra effort to buff, buff, buff it in & then use Honey Bisque over to blend it in. Not a big deal really, its just 1 extra step I wish I didnt HAVE to do but since Im looking for flawless I guess I really cant complain to much.
Bottom line - works great on my yellow/gold skintone when Im not extra tan.
Didnt work to well on my sisters very pink skintone.

I'm new to makeup and I need help! Will the colors in the set be too drastic for me? Will the jars last? Help!
I'm 17 and I'm new to the world of makeup. I recently got the bareMinerals foundation set in fairly light and I love it. I'm looking to expand my makeup collection to eyeshadows/liners now. This kit looks to be a bargain, but I'm not sure...I prefer a toned down makeup style, so I was wondering if this kit will fit my needs. I'm already hesitant to buy it because of all the shimmer shades, but I can be persuaded. Not only that, but the jars seem so small. It's a lot of money to drop on makeup (even if it is on sale) for it not to last very long. So my main concerns are colors to match my preferences and the makeup lasting for awhile. If someone could help me out, that would be fantastic :)

PS. I would love it if someone could recommend some color combinations from this kit or some how-to's regarding application!
Top 100 Contributor
The BM site doesn't link whatever product you were looking at to your "ask a question" click so we have no way of knowing what product you were looking at...theres so many kits...no way to even take a guess.

To address some of your questions though, any eyeshadow form BM can be "toned down" from what they look like in the jar. It depends how much you pack & pile on. If you start with a super light application & go up from there you can take any shade from a day time (school/work) "toned down" look to a heavy dramatic look.
Obviously some shade are better than others at this. I wouldn't tell you to buy a black shade & then say just use it sparingly & all will be well.

Again not sure what kit you were looking at so I cant comment on the jars sizes but I have kits on top of kits going back years and most of the jars are still half full. It really depends on how much you use and how often. I get a good couple months out of the colors i use the most, like 3-4 days a week.
If you were WAY into eye makeup, like my younger sister, I would say any kit would be great but honestly Im not & I have bought so many of theses kits that I don't use over half the colors very often. Its still a great value since the cost is about the same compared to buying just the couple shades that i WOULD & DO use. So it all works out for me in the end.

Now you asked about color combinations sadly again no idea what kit you were looking at....I think BM needs to fix their site in this regard...but I can tell you the sky's the limit. Everybody is different with different color combo skin/eyes colors so you are only do your self an injustice by NOT mixing & matching colors. What works for me may not be best for you & vice versa. As a general rule, use complimentary colors. Find out what colors work best for your skin eyes & go from there.

I understand why you may not be into shimmer shades but the shimmers from BM aren't like the crazy shimmers you see on TV or in some makeup stores. My 70 year old grandma wears them with no problem. Its all about color choices, how you wear them & how much you apply. Anyways your young...you can pull off almost any makeup look you want.

Until BM fixes the site to reflect what product you are "asking a question" about I would suggest stating what kit/product your question is about in the body of the question so we can better help each other out.

What are the best colors to wear for light skin and light blue eyes?
I dont normally wear any eye shadow but I really would like to start wearing some that will really make my eyes pop. Any suggestions? Thanks!
Top 100 Contributor
Depends on the color of blue but as a no fail...I use blackliners and orangey brown, bronze or copper....Like fall colors... on blue eyes to make them pop.
Try adding a dot of mauve to the inner corner of your eyes...its very pretty against blue eyes.

how do you put it on without it splattering on your face?
Every time i apply eyeliner that is in the powder formula it splatters on my cheeks and chin so i end up with splochie black spots all over my face that doesnt readily come off i end up having to wipe with makeup remover then reapplying all my facial makeup again. How do i prevent this from happening?
Top 100 Contributor
I use a brand of eye shadow (not BM) that is HORRIBLE for that. I end up with fallout & glitter EVERYWHERE. So what I do is apply a heavy dusting (I mean make it thick & white) of a setting powder like Mineral Veil to under my eyes & cheeks. Then after i'm done with my eye makeup i just dust it off with a tissue. No need to reapply.

I've been using a store brand cheapo setting powder so I don't waste all my good stuff.

eye product differences
Are your liners water resistant? I use a crayon that stays on most of the day, but I can't get a fine line. I'm looking at the eyeliner powder and it looks just like the eyebrow powder that I have 2 of after blending colors. What is the difference. I bought the fine liner brush, but want some tips. The worst thing would be to have product that runs when wet, so the powder is interesting. No store close by to get a first hand look.
Top 100 Contributor
Powder liners by default are NOT water resistant & in my opinion, they are more pigmented than brow powders. However BM makes a product called "weather everything" that is just what you're looking for if you want to use their powder liners. Not sure what you are going for with use of BM liner powders...like are you looking for just a better product, easier to apply? I use them because powder liners with a fine line brush offer you more creativity but again NOT waterproof. This is where the "weather everything" comes in. Its a liquid that waterproofs your powder liners & its creamy to apply so you get a tight fine line ( as with any liquid liner) but if you work quickly you can smudge it out to get a blended look like in a smokey eye. I use it frequently & it works well but I just like my waterproof eye liner pencils (by a different brand) more. They just work better for me.

BM just started making a waterproof liner pencil so you might want to look it up. I haven't tried it yet but my sister loves it. She got it earlier this summer & has been using it by the pool & water & says its great.

Will this product work well on tan color skin?? I'm afraid it will be too light for my skin tone.
Since most of the helpfull reviews were written by light to medium skin toned ladies I could not decide right of the bat it this will work for me, but I'm really trying to find a product for my under eye dark circles. Thanks in advance for the help!!!
Top 100 Contributor
Not sure what product your asking about.
The site didnt link your "ask a question" to the product you were looking at.

I'm a med to very tan, yellow/golden skin tone.
I use Honey Bisque & the concealer brush. When used right it works wonders. However there are weeks that I'm not getting any sleep for days & its not enough.
The "Well Rested" product is great for those times. But it can be a tad light on me so I use it first, then my Honey Bisque. But you want a lighter product to conceal with first before adding foundation.

Again Im not sure what product you were asking about so sorry if that doesn't help.

I am confuses about the brushes contained in the kit I purchased and the ones used in the video.
my kit came with a full flawless application brush, a flawless application brush and a concealer brush. The brushes used in the video are a flawless application brush, a kabuki brush and a concealer brush. Which of my brushes do I use with my products? Can I use 1 brush for more than one product? I am very confused.
Top 100 Contributor
The Full Kabuki has the heaviest coverage of all the larger brushes. You would use this is you really wanted to layer it on.
A step down would be the Handy Buki.
Next would be the Full Flawless
then Flawless is the lightest application of the 4 ....I believe, at least in my experience.

The concealer brush is also a heavy application brush used for under eyes or birthmarks. Whatever you wanna hide.

You can use all brushes with all products but some brushes are deigned to work better with some powders.

Like the Bisque powers, the concealer brush works best with those. Not that you couldn't use the bigger brushes but you wouldn't want to. The coverage may be weird.

It really just depends what kind of coverage you want.

Start with the concealer brush & use either your regular foundation or the Bisque & conceal all the dark circles or freckles or sun damage....whatever.

Use one of the following: Full Kabuki, Handy Buki, Full Flawless or Flawless to apply your foundation. Once you decide which brush you like best then you can play around with amounts of product & layers of application. Don't be in a big hurry the first few times. Take your time and start out with a small amount of product & build up the coverage until your happy. You'll get the gist of how much you need & for what kind of application after a couple times & then it will be fast & easy.

I but a new kit once a year because its cheaper than buying new brushes AND makeup. The kits are a great value & you get a lot for free.

I always use the other brush that comes in the kit, the one I don't like better for my foundation, for applying any blushes or warmth. I personally don't like to mix colored product on my foundation brushes no matter what the video shows.

Keep ALL your brushes clean & dry for best use. I mean you wouldn't use a dirty wet towel on your clean face right? Your brushes need to be clean of product build up & facial oils to work right.

My question has not been answered yet regarding the original and matte foundation.
What is the difference between the original and the matte foundation? Is one better than the other to use on "older" skin? Will the powder settle into wrinkles? Thanks!
Top 100 Contributor
Ok so original BM has a "glow" to it. The Matte dose not. There is a mineral metal in the original formula that sometime can break very sensitive skin out. I am told this is how the "glow" is achieved. Not a problem for most people. I only know this because it happened to my sister & we researched this problem well to make sure she got makeup that did not have that ingredient in it.

The Matte formula does not have this ingredient in it.

I am not sure of other differences between formulas to go from the "glow" of original to the matte formulations.

The original & matte both have the same exact application & coverage.

You have to decide if you like the "glow" in original. I suggest you go into a store that carries BM, with no makeup on, try original on half of your face & matte on the other side. Then go about your business, out in the sun, indoors, school, work...whatever & check the finish in different light. See what you like best.

I do not like it at all, thats just my personal preference . I used BM for years & used a matte setting powder by another brand until the new matte formulation came out.

A lot of the BM blushes have this "glow" effect as well as the Radiance lines.

If you don't know what I mean by "glow", its an almost shiny effect. Like right after you wash your face squeaky clean & apply a good face lotion. It can be a bit much if your super oily & WANT to get away from that look. However it doesn't make the oil worse in my opinion but most women with oily skin want a matte finish makeup. Its really a personal preference.

On some people its absolutely beautiful. Im just not one of those people & It IS visible through the Mineral Veil.

I hope that helps.

How does it work?
Do you really dip the lip balm into the eyecolors? Wouldn't that mess up the lip balm? I'm a little confused... Thanks for any clarifications you might have.
Top 100 Contributor
You sure can! It doesnt mess it up but it gets build up of product in the tube. I just gently wipe it off with a tissue when needed. Also I just dab my finger in the colors & put it on my lips after I apply the balm & rub in.
They're regular eye colors so you can use any other eye color as well. Also you can use any lip balm with the eye colors too. I started using other lip balms with the eye colors when I ran out of Buzz Latt'e a while ago & since its ONLY available in this kit I haven't bought any more yet because I have no need for any more of the same eye colors.

Can someone please give me your tips for covering dark undereye circles?
I use the summer bisque and the well rested and am still not having success in smoothing out and covering my dark undereye circles. I have most recently switched to an alternate liquid concealer, but I don't like using anything other than BE! Thanks for any advice.
Top 100 Contributor
Trick is to off set the darkness when all the concealer in the world wont cover or like in your case you want to use a specific product that may not have the best concealing properties. I think there are many brands of liquid concealers that are gods greatest gift to women but I understand that some people just don't like them so in that case here is my pro makeup tips using BE.

First thing is make sure you using a good eye cream, both day & night. You want the eye area WELL hydrated. There are some eye creams on the market with light reflecting properties. I cant say enough good things about those products. I love them & use them daily not only on myself but when I'm doing makeup on other. Make sure its massaged in to the eye area, this does 2 things, 1 massage help reduce puffiness & dark circles, 2 you want the product absorbed well into your skin before applying powders.
You should also be using a high quality primer on your skin right before makeup application. Again, make sure it is massage in to skin well & allow time to dry & sit for a minute before you proceed. You want a dry eye ares so you don't get globs of powder. Globby and or cakey powder, however minor, adds significantly to the overall appearance of dark circles.

Next you can try using a touch of mineral veil first to give the other product something to adhere to. I don't do this personally on myself but have had great luck in covering others dark eye circles with this trick.
Now use the Well Rested make sure the product is being warmed in the lid buy swirling it around significantly. BM products work best when warmed up well prior to application. Now buff, buff, buff away. Start lighter & build up. I usually do 2 applications of Well rested. Now do the same with you Bisque. The foundation if you so choose. The BE Radiance family of products has light reflecting properties. You can try experimenting with these. I add a touch of the Clear Radiance to my Well Rested to help defect & refract light & this will aid in the illusion.
Whatever combination you do make sure the product is warmed up & tap off excess off brush & buff, buff, buff & blend, blend, blend!

Distract - If you use eye shadows you should choose colors that do not add to the darkness of your eye area. Choose lighter yellow base shade family colors
(like light warm bronzes or golds - True Gold, Hottie & Beautiful Autumn with the PrimeTime Shadow in Sundance are my everyday got to's)
& stay away from the darker shade non waterproof eyeliners. ESPECIALLY on the lower lash line. No matter how little, they ALL seem to run bleed etc at some point & just add to the darkness.

Recently I have been using the BE Redness Remedy for covering my under eye circles. It has a stronger yellow tones than Well Rested & that will help combat dark eye circles. I know its says "Redness Remedy" but yellow concealers have been a long held pro makeup tip for years to hide dark circles.

If all this still fails you may need to just accept your under eye fate as I have & use the liquid concealers. If so invest the cash in a good brand. DONT buy drug store brands. Get a high quality, creamy one & use a concealer brush designed to conceal. If you do end up doing this you have a lot more flexibility in color corrective measures. You can add as much or little yellow, green, pink to the liquid concealers & get the exact recipe for your under eye solutions. There are several major pro makeup brands the offer whole palettes with several color corrective choices for under $50.
Good luck!
