This was great to show how to apply the new BB cream eye shadow, I too, was using too much. However, just a couple notes on watching and the products listed. It would be nice to know which BB cream eye shadow she used, when you click on the product listed it highlights Soft Shell, the 2.0 shadow when you click on it, goes to The Covert Affair instead of The Nick of Time. I have not worn either of these 2.0 shadows, they both look pretty similar. Once I get around to trying this look I will update my review. this looks like a great every day, neutral look.

This is a really nice kit. I have to admit, I'm not really sure what to do with the luminizer, the color is really pretty and it looks great as a light blush or a little dusting on the face. The Berry Mauve Color, Gloss and Stain is really pretty. In the video it looks like a bright pink - it isn't. It's more of a berry/wine color. The first time I tried it, I did so without any make up and it look fine on me - that is how I test lip colors on me. If they look good without makeup then they will look even better with makeup. The eye colors are a gorgeous neutral that you can wear with anything really and you can keep it light or build. I tend to keep my eyes light, not too heavy. Because of the shape of my eye, I never take shadow, mascara or liner to my lower lash line/lower eye area. This is an amazing kit. The BB cream eye shadow is a full size, I was expecting it to be a sample/mini-size. I hope BE will put the Triple Take Color Gloss & Stain in their product line, I tried to find them and I could not. Same with the Ready Eyeshadow Duo color, it's not in their regular line. The All Over Face Color, I'm on the fence about. I have tried it the way it was done in the video and it was fine but I have not tried it as a light all over face color yet. all in all, this is a great kit and you won't be disappointed.

I am really, really picky about pink lip colors on me. I came across Smooth Talker in a gloss kit last year and it's a very lovely shade of pink - not bright and not too dull. The lipstick in this kit is wonderful. It's a nude pink that actually looks great solo and with the gloss. My lips are really pink sometimes nude pinks wash me out and look "flat". These are great. I will be getting both of these in full sizes.

These nudes are a must have. The first three colors I really love (Super Power, Trailblazer and A-Lister )and the last color, Maverick are really nice. I have to admit I have not tried Future Star or Live Wire yet. For me, A-Lister is a perfect nude shade that does NOT wash me out like most nude shades do. I tried to find this shade in the regular line and I don't see it. BE - PLEASE add it to your regular line as I would stock up! Maverick is a gorgeous brown, not too brown. I even put it on without any other makeup and it looked nice - a little goes a long way. If you purchase this you won't be disappointed. I might just order another set to have on hand.

I received a sample of the 5-in-1 BB advanced performance cream shadow in candlelit peach. I am a light to medium skin tone who tans very easily with brunette hair and blue eyes. At first I was skeptical about trying it, thinking I would not like it. I was pleasantly surprised! I love this shade. It is neutral without washing me out and it "wakes up" my eyes. a little goes a long way. I will definitely purchase this in a full size. This would be a great product to use on those days when you don't have much time.

Better than loose mineral veil

After reading reviews, I purchased both the light and the medium - I wear the medium beige matte in the loose foundation and the Medium tan in the Ready Made foundation. I like both the light and the medium in this touch up veil, I think the light works best for me but I can get away with the medium as well. I don't use the pouf that came with it, I use a retraceable brush and lightly touch the compact. This is so much easier and less messy than the loose veil. I have not tried this with the loose foundation, only with the ready made foundation. I don't wear the loose foundation much anymore since I switched to the ready made foundation.

I first received the face cream and the facial cleanser as samples in a previous order. I fell in love with the cleanser. I was nervous about the face cream since my face has become super sensitive over the past few years and will break out with a drop of a hat. Since I was in need of eye cream and thought, this is worth a try with the saving of the trio. I must say I love all three! The cleanser really washes off all of your makeup and your eye make up too without irritating your eyes. The eye cream does not bother my eyes. I wish they would do this trio with the SPF version, as I'd love to try that for days I'm not wearing foundation. This is my first Bare Minerals skin care I have ever purchased. With my sensitive skin, I have been using this for a week and I have not had any breakouts! If you read the reviews of just the face cream, some reviewers mentioned their face was "shiny" after putting it on. I have not had that problem. One small negative: I wish the face cream was a little bit larger, perhaps 3 fl in a tube. Please keep this trio around - it's a great savings and it's naturally perfect!

Maverick, Spark Plug and Smooth Talker are my favorites in this pack. All of the colors are nice really but the first three i wear the most. Hopefully I can find them in the larger size. This would make a great gift to introduce someone to this line of lipgloss.

Phrases Chosen: nice
I have thin lashes and most mascara will eventually clump on me. My favorite by far is the expresso flawless definition, it would be nice if the waterproof came in expresso. Anyway, this does go on fine for me. I do have to dab the brush on a small piece of TP or tissue to get some of the excess off - I do this for just about any mascara I have ever used. This does not flake yet it's not as waterproof as I'd like. I have had my tube for about 2-3 weeks now and it is not clumping or oozing out like it did on another reviewer. Perhaps a bad batch was made? All in all I am pleased with the purchase.

After watching the video I was a bit scared to try this since my skin tone is completely different. I have a medium skin tone with brunette hair and blue eyes. I must say WOW! Love love love!!! made my blue eyes pop with color. The colors blend so well and you can layer them for a hint of color or go more dramatic for an evening. I'm debating on ordering another kit before it disappears. The lipgloss at first I was worried it would look like it does in the tube. Not for me, my lips have a lot of pink in them and the gloss looked really natural on. you won't regret this kit. I will add one more note - I wish there was an option to choose the expresso mascara.

I don't notice any yellow or orange tones with the light. the medium has more of a tint to it so that might. I purchased both the light and the medium to try out.
