Subtle Highlighting
Rating
4 out of 5
4 out of 5
Phrases Chosen: subtle, highlighting
I'm really enjoying this brightener. I'm confused as to why people think it's a concealer - it's not, nor does the description claim to be. I use this brightener along with my Well Rested Concealer and the results are subtly beautiful. I use the concealer for my dark circles, and dot the brightener along the tops of my cheekbones and slightly over the dark circles. Like I said, the effect is subtle - nothing earth shattering, but combining this with other concealers does brighten the look around my eyes (not just under them).
I agree the applicator could be changed to be more useful - I blend it with my finger instead. I recommend for those looking for a highlighter without all the shimmer!

Impressed, but other BE mascara still my favorite
Rating
4 out of 5
4 out of 5
Phrases Chosen: volumizing, thick
I was skeptical about this mascara because BE's Flawless Definition Curl & Lengthen is my all time favorite mascara - but I was impressed with the coating of this product. It applies thickly in one coat, reducing the amount of times I have to go over each eye. It absolutely increases eyelash volume which is always a plus. The formula is definitely thicker, but still feels nice when dry and doesn't smear or flake throughout the day.
That being said, there are some downsides that keep it from being my favorite. Although it applies nice and thick, this can and will lead to clumping. Wiping some of the product from the brush helps, but it's inevitable so apply with caution. It also weighs my lashes down (again, because of the thick formula) and the curl is often gone by midday. My favorite Curl & Lengthen separates my lashes making them appear naturally thicker and longer, whereas the Lash Domination tries too hard to do its job. My lashes are thicker, but it's more noticeable that I'm wearing mascara because of clumps and such. All in all, a decent buy but I'll be going back to my favorite!

Love this palette!
Rating
5 out of 5
5 out of 5
Phrases Chosen: creamy, longlasting, creaseless, flattering
The Power Neutrals palette is a must have for just about anybody. With eight different colors, I can mix up my looks daily and never feel bored. The colors themselves are definitely neutral (obviously), but with a little practice anyone can create a "work" look that transitions into a beautiful "nighttime" smoky eye. The colors are also perfect on my light skin for easy summer makeup #can't wait to use for the fall/winter, too!#. I have had a fantastic experience with all the READY eye colors I've bought, and I definitely recommend you try them if you like more control over eye makeup #vs. loose eye shadows#. The formula glides on smoothly, lasts all day long without creasing #with eyelid primer#, and the palettes have lasted me quite some time. I highly recommend this to add to your collection!

Another BE hit!
Rating
4 out of 5
4 out of 5
Phrases Chosen: creamy, moisturizing, calming
I waited a couple months before reviewing this product because I wasn't sure after the first couple days. But I can now officially say that I love this cleanser! It was recommended to me because of my combination skin and because I felt like the Purifying Cleanser just wasn't doing it for me. I was also battling severe redness (from trying too many different products!# so I needed something to calm this irritation. This cleanser has almost hit it out of the park. It controls my t-zone oiliness while also keeping my dry areas moisturized. I use it morning and night, and combined with the night serum, my redness is gone and my face is much less sensitive than before. Minus one heart because it does not completely remove eye makeup #but it also doesn't say it will, I just wish it would). I highly recommend if the Purify cleanser just isn't cutting it anymore!

Made My Skin Breakout
Rating
2 out of 5
2 out of 5
Phrases Chosen: no results, breakouts
I was very excited for this product, but was sadly disappointed. My usually clear, perfect skin was marred with breakouts after using this. I've been doing the same nighttime routine for a while, and adding this to it really did damage. I used this on my forehead and smile lines, and have been unable to get rid of the breakouts. I have clear, combination skin that is NOT sensitive, so I'm really surprised this happened. I also did not see major long-term results - immediate results showed some wrinkle plumping which was encouraging, so perhaps using this for months could produce wrinkle repair. Two stars because I love BE products, including its skincare line.

Amazing Set for Great Value
Rating
5 out of 5
5 out of 5
Phrases Chosen: great value, everyday use, awesome
This set includes so many different BE products to try for such a low price, that it's impossible to turn down. The mascara is by far my favorite I've ever tried, the BE brushes can't be beat, the eyelid primer is a must, the neutral eyeliner can be worn with anything, and the eye color is subtle yet enhances any eye color. Wear it alone for easy, day-to-day looks, or pair it with other neutrals to really stand out. This "tutorial" is a must have, even if you're a beauty expert, mainly because of the great value for several different BE products which are always outstanding quality!

Good concept, but somewhat poor execution
Rating

Phrases Chosen: beautiful colors, needs constant sharpening
I really do like these eyeliners, but the constant sharpening is a bit of a money waster. The color goes on smoothly and a bit thick, begging to be smudged. It took practice to create different looks because it's not as precise, but it can be if you want it to. The biggest negative about the eyeliners is how soft they are. It's nice when you want a soft line, but the product wears down very quickly. Within the first week of using it, I had to sharpen it. I didn't have trouble sharpening it like other reviews have said, but it will definitely needs multiple sharpens. For the price of the product, I'm not sure it's worth it, but we'll see how long it lasts.

Keeps Blemishes at Bay
Rating
5 out of 5
5 out of 5
Phrases Chosen: fantastic, actually works!
This product is wonderful, as are all BM products! I tend to break out if I stress too much or forget to wash my makeup off a few nights in a row. With the Blemish Therapy, I can keep blemishes under control at any time! I apply this under my foundation and as the last step in my nighttime routine, and it works great at keeping pimples from popping up in the most unwanted places. The key is being consistent with this product - however, if I use it too much, too often in one area, it can dry out my skin. When this happens, I wait one or two days before applying it again and it's back to working perfectly!

Phrases Chosen: fantastic, the best serum ever
All I can say is WOW. This serum has worked wonders on my skin by providing intense moisture and smoothing all surfaces and wrinkles. With the dry winter months wreaking havoc on my skin, I needed something extra along with my moisturizer and this serum was perfect. A little goes a long way and it instantly soaks into your skin, without a greasy feel. I now wake up with perfectly moisturized skin and no more flakes! I recommend this serum for any and all ages because you never can start too soon on protecting your skin.

The best mascara I've come across in a long time!
Rating

5 out of 5
Phrases Chosen: amazing, eye-defining, highly recommended
I've been using two different brands (CoverGirl and L'Oreal) of mascara for several years now (both at the same time on a regular basis), and I never saw myself switching from them. Then I received BE's Flawless Definition Curl & Lengthen Mascara in a kit and I've gotten so many compliments in just a few short weeks! I couldn't believe that this one tube of mascara could not only match what the two tubes I've been using for years do, but completely outdo them as well! My lashes are instantly lengthened while still looking natural and clump-free. This mascara opens my eyes and perfectly tops off any BE shadows I use. Highly recommended!

Should I apply the moisturizer after this product?
I have the product but don't know if it should be used alone or with moisturizer. Thank you!
It depends on your skin type. If you have dry skin, you'll most likely need moisturizer. Combination skin (like me), you might get away without it or a light serum. Very oily skin, you may not need extra moisturizer. If you tend to get oily, stick with a lighter moisturizer. Hope this helps!
