Another amazing BE product!!!!!

Phrases Chosen: creamy, long lasting, a must have
I received Barely Nude as part of the Hot List collection. The product is extremely creamy and easy to apply. It looks amazing and really does last all day, not just an 8 hour day. It last without creasing in 95 degree weather while I was outside. This product looks amazing on its own and makes my other shadows last all day as well.
Unfortunately, I was not able to attend the preview party at my local boutique. However, I will be going as soon as possible to pick out more colors of this wonderful product. I am going to need a separate bathroom for all of my BE makeup if they keep bringing out such wonderful products!!!

Phrases Chosen: creamy, beautiful, wonderful colors
The picture of this palette is probably the most true to the real colors I've ever seen. The "jade" color is really a blue that reminds me of water. The colors all work really well together and I feel the finishes work well together as well. The blue is actually kind of sheer but buildable, which I like because my eyes are blue. I can work to a really pretty color without washing my eyes out.
I'm still working on different looks with it. I'd love if BE posted ideas with this palette and the future ones. I can't wait to see the rest of the palettes they release in this series.

Phrases Chosen: long lasting
I'm a little late to the game but I finally tried the ready foundation after being a fan of the loose powder foundation for years. I got the precision face brush to use with it and couldn't be happier. I was always disappointed after a twelve hour work day with how my powder foundation looked. Apparently I have more combination skin than I thought. So, I got the oil control foundation primer and the ready foundation and tried them together. I couldn't be happier!!!! I noticed about half way though the day my skin felt a little cakey (don't think that's really a word) but my complexion still looked flawless and not oily at all. I actually worked about sixteen hours that day and my makeup stayed strong the whole time. So now I'll be using both depending on how long I plan to be wearing my makeup. I can't wait to be able to try the new bareskin foundation as well!
P.S. I was a shade darker than in the loose powder. Keep that in mind if you can only order off the internet. I would definitely recommend going into the store to try and/or see the product before buying.

Phrases Chosen: my skin looks better than it ever has
I'm kinda pale with a little tan but a lot of redness and dark circles. I got the number 2's because they have a more yellow undertone and they do very well to at covering up the redness on my face and dark circles under my eyes. I've noticed after wearing the makeup all day for a couple days in a row my skin is less red, my under eye area less dark and my pores are getting smaller. BE foundation always made my skin better but the correct/concealer makes the change quicker and more noticeable. Once my usual foundation/mineral veil routine is complete, my skin looks flawless! I've always loved BE and this just gives me even more to love!!!!

I watched this video numerous time before purchasing these products. I followed her suggestions, used my ring finger for application and used mineral veil all over my face afterwards (my job doesn't allow much makeup). It was very natural looking and for the first time, made my under eye dark circles disappear!!!! I love your video tutorials....keep them coming!!!

Phrases Chosen: can i add more stars please!!!!
Ok....so I wasn't much of lip gloss or lipstick person until I tried the 100% natural lip gloss. Loving that and thinking I would love this color, I ordered this a couple weeks ago. I love the color alone and layered over darker bolder lip colors to tone them down or "pink" them up a little. I can't get enough of this lip gloss....I have ordered a backup tube already with plans to get at least one more!!!!
This is very different from the 100% natural lip gloss. I think the moxie lip gloss is less sheer and adds more color payoff to your lips in a gloss form. It seems a little stickier at first but once warmed up by my body temperature, its creamy and seems to moisturize my lips all day long.

I got this kit a week ago. I love the neutral brown colors with my skin tone so I went ahead and bought two kits at once. I wanted to wait to write a review until I had tried all of the colors. I can't get enough of this kit. All of the colors look wonderful alone or combined. I've tried multiple combinations and they all look amazing. I love how bright and open the lighter shades make my eyes. Right now I'm loving these colors with a bolder lip

Phrases Chosen: wonderful summer look
I bought this at the boutique today and had to try it immediately.
The BB cream for the eyes is wonderfully soft, smooth, and creamy. It makes a great blank canvas for the eyeshadow. This kept my eyeshadow exactly where I wanted it all day long.
The eyeshadow palette (Hot Shot) is perfectly matched, the colors look amazing together. If you're not really into all the shimmer, the darker shade is a matte shadow.
The all over face powder (A little sun matte) and the Luminizer (The Most Wanted) create a wonderful sun kissed summer look. They are also wonderful if you want to contour your face. (Still practicing this!!! :-P)
The lipstick was the scariest part of this collection. I am pale and generally use a pink or neutral lip. I experimented with different amount of color and found that even bold this color looks good with my skin tone. I even used a little of the heartbreaker lip gloss over is for a softer hue and some shimmer and loved it even more!!
I love the collections that BareMinerals offers. They are such a wonderful way to get things I know I love and try some things that I normally wouldn't if they were on their own.

I am kind of pale with a slight tan still hanging on from last summer. I got this product because I needed a solution for the dark circles I always have underneath my eyes. I got it at the store today and had to try it out. I LOVE THIS PRODUCT!! I used it under my foundation and applied it with the wand then smoothed it out with my finger. Once my foundation was applied, the dark circles were gone and my eyes looked wide and awake. This product will now be a constant part of my makeup routine.

I definitely recommend you start with a small amount of product and build to what looks good for your skin tone.
I love this product. There are times when I don't have the right shade of foundation or just look like my face is washed out. This product brings back that sun kissed, healthy glow to my skin. Since I am fair skinned, I still have my warmth from my starter kit that I bought over five years ago!!!

I like the coverage from READY SPF 20 Foundation except that it produces wrinkles along my jaw line that do not show up with other foundations?
I do use Bare Minerals moisturizer, prime time before applying foundation. I will try a layer of mineral veil between primer and foundation and see if it helps. It doesn't look so much like it settles into wrinkles. It looks like I have a patch of skin about the size of a quarter on each side of my face that looks shriveled. What am I doing wrong? I am 52.
Top 100 Contributor
I am not a professional but I have tried the Original, Ready and Bareskin formulas on my skin. They all work differently!!! My personal advise would be to try the Bareskin formula and a primer to see if that works any better.

I'm a Medium Beige in the original foundation. What shade would be best for me in the Ready foundation?
And do I need the Precision Brush to use this foundation?
Top 100 Contributor
It's general rule that you'll be one shade darker than the Original formula in the Ready foundation. However, after my experience, if you can get to a boutique or anywhere that sells it so you can test it first and/or be shade matched, that's the best.

I've heard of other people using other foundation brushes to apply the ready foundation. I have the precision face brush. I love the brush because it picks up just enough product and blends it so well over my whole face. This brush is very soft as well.

I would think almost any brush would work but I definitely think you should use a brush to get it blended well

Between the ready and Bareskin, which formula is more sweat proof for summer?
I am debating between the two foundations never trying either yet. I want a somewhat sweat proof formula that won't completely be removed when wiping my mouth when eating, etc.
Top 100 Contributor
I am not a professional makeup artist or anything but I have tried both formulas and work outside no matter how hot or cold it is.

I think (at least with my skin, yours may be different) they both last about the same in the heat and they both will wipe off while using a napkin. I have used both with and without primer. The Ready foundation, I feel, does a little better than Bareskin without a primer as far as last power. However, while using a primer, I feel the Bareskin does better and looks better throughout the day (more natural, not like a mask) while working in the heat and sweating (a lot).

In my opinion they are a combination of matte and sheen. None of them seem overly shimmery to me. Hope this helps.

Yes, this set comes in the minis. However, the shadows last forever, especially for me since I can't wear them heavily/dark.

Are all BE eyeshadows so shimmery?
I've purchased 2 BE eyeshadows and they're both so shimmery. Are they all that way? I'd prefer some that are matte and less Las Vegas-esque for work. This set appears to be toned down. Are they? Thanks.
Top 100 Contributor
These are somewhat shimmery but can be put on very lightly so they only brighten or heavily so there is a lot of shimmer. I have no doubt these will also blend well with all of the BE shadows. When you're looking online, look for the shadows that are described as "matte" if you want color with no shimmer at all. There are also the satins which are somewhere in the middle between the mattes and the shimmers.

How to Keep This from Going On Too Dark
Help! I'd love to add just a little warmth to my face, as this product is designed to do. But it goes on too dark, so I look oddly dark on my face. I've tried putting it on with the fan brush, but then I don't see any additional color in my face at all.

Any tips and tricks in terms of applicator brush to apply it with and how to get the color just right?

(FYI -- I'm a warm "light" -- I use Fairly Light if I'm really pale, but usually I'm Golden Fair, or Light.)

Thanks!
Top 100 Contributor
I am very pale as well. My suggestion would be to be very careful to put only a very small amount of product in the lid and I use a blush style brush with tapered bristles. Then, start to where you can't see any color and build to what you're happy with. This may take some time but you'll avoid going straight to having makeup that's too dark.

Where is Warmth meant to be put on the cheeks?
I've heard about a million different explanation for applying Warmth, and I'd like to hear what you all think. Where does Warmth go on the cheeks? On top for a highlight? In the middle for some extra color? In the hollows for a more sculpted cheek look?
Top 100 Contributor
There are tutorials out there that show you if you need a visual reference. I put warmth on all the high places of my face, that is my nose, cheeks, chin and forehead. If you wear blush as well, I have had success with putting warmth under my mineral veil and then the blush to highlight the tops of my cheek bones after my mineral veil.

I hope this helps.

What do you do to continue using the eyeliner?
I'm not sure if I need to use an eyeliner sharpener on this or if there is another way of being able to continue using the eyeliner.

You can get a small cosmetic sharpener from any store in order to continue using your BE product
