I purchased the wearable brown light as part of the Gorgeous by Nature Collection a few months ago. This has been one of my favorite go-to colors in that collection because of its versatility. I use it often as a base color for my eye lids then, layer on with other colors - whether I feel like having a "light" eye color palette or a "rich" eye color palette that day. Also, it's a great blender color when used with the appropriate brush.

Phrases Chosen: rich color
I have always been a neutrals eyeshadow gal. When this eyeshadow was available as a set with the Gorgeous by Nature Collection, I knew I just had to get it. The eyeshadow name says it all - "wearable brown dark". It is one of my favorite go-to colors. It's very adaptable and versatile whether I'm doing an all-neutrals eyeshadow look or if I'm combining with it other colors in the violet/purples, blues or greens. This is a must-have eye color. It is a keeper!

I purchased this brush as part of the Rich and Fabulous Collection. In the past, I've used the full application face blush and have been happy with it but I wanted another option for a face blush. I've been using the angled brush occasionally since I received it a few months ago but find myself still gravitating towards the full face blush. Why? Because I find the angled blush brush too small. I think it's a good travel size brush but not for everyday use.

I was looking for lipgloss without the "refreshing" after effect and the lady at my local BE Boutique was raving about 100% Natural Lipgloss. So many colors to choose from......but I decided to go with the sheer effect of Sprinkles. This lipgloss has no color which gives it the versatility for one to apply it over other lipstick colors or over bare lips. The gloss adds more pout to my lips! Furthermore, the lipgloss doesn't have a strong taste.
The only thing I have yet to get used to is the "goopy" texture. I find it a wee bit messy to apply.

I am on my way to finishing my 3rd bottle and just purchased the 4th :) I started using the Purifying Facial Cleanser as part of a 30-day Combo Kit with the Combination Skin Facial Moisturizer. I decided to move on to another BE moisturizer but decided to continue on the PF Cleanser.
As with other BE products I've tried, a little goes a long way. All you need is about 1-1/2 to 2 pumps. The cleanser effectively removes my make-up but feels gentle on my skin. I've been using this product for almost 4 months now and there has been a progressive improvement in my complexion. My face feels more supple, no more dry spots and even skin tone. This is a must-have for ladies needing a gentle but effective facial cleanser. Thank you BE!

First of all, I have to say how sad I am to find out that BE is phasing out their Big & Bright Eyeliner :( I'm sure there is a wonderful new product BE will be coming out with to replace the B&B Eyeliner but....I'm just saying *sigh*
I have this eyeliner in charcoal, plum, midnight and chocolate......and I love them all!!!!! But since this is a review on charcoal, let me focus on that specific eyeliner color. Compared to black eyeliner that provides a stronger contrast against your eyeshadow and sclera (white of the eye), the charcoal is such a sophisticated color that blends well with certain eyeshadows. I love how it can further accentuate smoky eye make-up. Also, the blending sponge and sharpener at the other end of the pencil is sooooo practical.
Farewell my beloved B&B Eyeliner ;) You will be greatly missed!

I've been using "ripe fig" as one of my go-to everyday lip colors for about 2 years now. I love this shade a lot because it is very close to my natural lip color. The only issue I've encountered with "ripe fig" is that it runs out easily at my local BE Boutique. I guess that means it's a very popular item :)

I've recently shifted over from wearing mostly neutrals to colored eye make-up. I got so excited when the Year of Beauty Collection went on sale at such an incredible price I just had to get it. The colors are so vivid, adaptable and fun!!! I've experimented with a few daytime and night time looks and the possibilities are endless. This collection is a definite must-have for its colors, quality and cost.

I bought this mascara about a month ago because of its "friendly" ingredients - no parabens, etc. I usually like my mascara on the natural and light side - just enough to enhance my thin lashes. The brush applies smoothly on my lashes and definitely defines each lash. I love how a product is called exactly what it does and delivers :) Thank you BE!!!

I've typically stayed with neutral eye shadow colors but decided it was time for me to have fun with colored eye shadow from the BE Ready Playlist palette. At first, I was concerned about looking like Mimi from the Drew Carey show but after playing around with the Playlist eye shadows I am so glad I bought this product. The colors are beautiful!!! The palette provides so much versatility when combining different colors to achieve various looks. The brush on the 8.0 is good for touch-ups and definitely better than the sponge applicator BE provides in the duos. The only minor criticism I have is that the gold case, although very lovely, attracts fingerprints easily.
In general, I think the BE Ready eyeshadow collection is a great addition. I just wish that we would have the opportunity to customize our color sets and have the ability to re-fill our 8.0 cases.

Will this product help with filling or smoothing the appearance of craters due to chicken pox?
My daughter had a very bad case of chicken pox at the age of 1 which left her scarred with craters. Now she is 16 and old enough to wear make up. Will this product reduce the appearance of her craters so that her make up foundation is smoother?
Based on the description of your daughter's facial condition, I don't think the Prime Time Foundation Primer will help with filling in or smoothing the appearance of craters. The product is more like a thin film that smoothens the entire face. Pardon my forwardness...but are the amount of "craters" dense and cover a large area of her face? Or is it more "spotty"? If it is more spotty, you might want to consider using a concealer for your daughter then, add the mineral powder over for a smooth look.
