Instant Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover - yup the name says it all. This will remove all of your waterproof eye make up instantly without tugging or irritating your delicate eye area. The formula isn't greasy even though in the bottle it looks like there is an oily substance. There is one minor complaint about the bottle and it's probably just me. The bottle isn't flexible so you can't just squeeze you have to shake out the liquid onto a cotton ball. Again, minor and not worth taking off a star.

Phrases Chosen: beautiful
I really love the Bronzer in High Dive color because it is light with subtle shimmer. I am medium skin with neutral/yellow undertone so this color works really well for me. It doesn't make my face look "dirty". The Luminizer in The Long Weekend is equally as awesome because it's warm gilded sheen works perfectly with the High Dive. I like to use the Luminizer on my brow to highlight and WOW it's so pretty!
Of course you can't forget the beautiful nude color of Jack of all Trades. It's nude color works well as an everyday lip sheen or can be used as a base for lip color. I do have one complaint on the actual dispensing tube. I can twist the bottom to dispense more product, but I can not counter-twist to get the product back into the tube. I actually lost a chunk of balm because I couldn't retract the product. I REALLY REALLY hope BE will make Jack of all Trades a regular product because I love the color!
I am actually not fond of the tapered fan brush hence the four stars so...I gave it to my sister and I think she likes it. I like to apply my bronzer with the angled blush brush and the luminizer with the full tapered brush from my Mini Masters set.
In all this set is awesome :)

I have been really hesitant on trying the Ready line, but I am really glad I tried this. The compact is half the size of the regular one, but for $12 you can't go wrong. I think I like this one better than the loose powder; I feel like the solid controls my shine longer. I love how BE gave two application options 1) a super baby buki (my baby buki is bigger than the one sent) 2) a compact pad, which I might add is super awesome. I like to apply this in a tapping motion with the pad just because I feel like I'm not smudging my foundation around. I will definitely buy the regular sized Ready Veil!

Phrases Chosen: amazingly light!
I bought the foundation yesterday and so today would be my second day wearing the ready. I went to a BE Boutique to get matched since there are so many reviews encouraging to do it. Well, for me, I am actually the same shade in the Original as in the Ready and in the Matte I can't find a good color, but I am glad that I tried different shades. I am light/medium skinned and neutral/yellow undertone (Hispanic) so I was matched as Medium Beige.
I live in SE GA which is very hot and humid and my foundation stood up to all the humidity we had today. For me this definitely stayed on my face compared to the loose powder. The loose powder will "run" off my face and come off I try to blot with a paper towel or an oil control sheet.
I REALLY LOVE how this formula does NOT make my face itch. The original formula made me want to claw my face off and the matte made my skin feel oily and mask-y even though it's made to help control the oil. The Ready is so light weight that I had forgotten that I was wearing make up at all! Now I need to find someone who needs my loose power foundation because I found a new love <3 <3<3
In all I LOVE all the Ready products!!
I will definitely recommend this to all my sister and all my friends!!

I got this in the $40 mystery kit that just came out. I don't want to but I have to say this...BE you could have kept this in the warehouse or tossed it in the recycle bin. This thing is ugly and bulky. I am not going to return this because it came in the kit and the shadows that came with the kit are awesome enough to overlook the face case. The only reason I give this 1 <3 is the baby buki brush.

My sister LOVES this little set. She usually wears black or brown so I decided to give her a little variety while introducing her to the fabulous world of BE. She is of light skin tone, brown eyes, and brown hair and she says the colors looks amazing against her eye and skin color. I know from my personal experience the liners go on smoothly with precise application and of course no sharpening.

I really love all the colors in this color palette, which is very rare for me. All the colors go on smoothly, are blendable, and stay on for hours. The brush that comes with the compact is better than those that you get with an over the counter eyeshadow, but in my opinion it isn't as good as BE regular line brushes. This is my first READY product and I must say I LOVE IT!

I got this in today and I had to try it! I absolutely love the color and sparkle because it's not overpowering. The color is like rich champagne, but again it doesn't give a lot of color it illuminates. This product will probably last a long time because the powder is so concentrated that a little goes a long way. I also love the texture, it's very soft :) This is definitely a gorgeous color that can be worn on the eye lids on a day you don't want to be "made up" or as a base for eyeshadow. I absolutely would recommend this for anyone who wants to achieve a flawless glow.

I went in today to my local BE boutique to try out the new Ready Foundation and I have to say overall I like it. I give this three stars because the price is high and I would need to buy another brush just to apply this foundation. The product did give me full coverage just like my original and matte formulas. As far as color, I am the same shade in all three formulas, but it doesn't hurt to get color matched. I have combination skin and my T-Zone did oil up some but I noticed my make-up still looked good. I would recommend this to my friends ,but I'm still debating if I want to spend $29.

What is the size of the mini compact?
Would like to know how much product I am getting in the compact and how tiny the compact is.
Top 100 Contributor
The compact itself is about half the size of a regular one and you get 4.5g/0.15 oz of product. The regular compact gives you 10g/0.3oz so for half the price you get half the product and a baby buki and compact applicator. Hope that helps :)

Does the brush fit inside the compact?
I'm wondering if the mini brush fits in the compact to fit easily in a purse?

The mini brush has a round handle that doesn't fit in the compact.

why does this make up make my face itch when it is humid outside?
I love the way it looks and feels, until I get in the humid weather and then I want to claw my face it itches so bad.
Top 100 Contributor
I've ready and have been told it's because of the Bismuth in the original formula. I also had that problem with the original so I purchased the matte formula and problem solved. For some reason under my eyes it doesn't irritate so I use my original as under eye concealer since it has that sheen. I had asked a beauty rep what I could do about the itch and she had recommended doing a mineral veil sandwich (mineral veil, foundation, then mineral veil again). In order to use up my foundation and not waste $27, I mix my foundations and do mineral veil sandwich and the itch isn't bad. I hope this helps :)

Does this mascara run down onto your lower eyelid?
After I wash my face or wake up without taking my mascara off, will the mascara look runny?
Top 100 Contributor
From my personal experience, yes, the mascara does run to your lower eye lashes and outer corner of eyes. When I forget to wash my face (or just too tired to do it) the next morning I'll have smudges under my lower lash line. Don't get my wrong I LOVE their mascaras, but I've read if you sweep some mineral veil on your eye lashes that will help the mascara stay on better. I like BE mascaras because I've noticed my eye lashes don't fall out as much as with other brands.
