Pros: precision, control
I agree, this is a great brush for re-shaping your eye. I like the larger end especially for the crease, and the smaller end for a winged or cat-eye liner. Eyeliner was the hardest thing for me to master. I always stunk at it, and my lines never looked right. Yes, I would have people show me to dash the liner across your lid and go back and connect the dots. Mine never looked right. Maybe I'm too much of a perfectionist, but I could never get a a thin, even line until I came to Bare Minerals and started applying it with a brush! Part of my eyeliner troubles comes from me having astigmatism (uncontrollable rapid blinking). It makes my eyelining a challenge, but with this brush, my eye makeup always looks great when I need extra precision, even if my eyelids are fighting me :)

Pros: precision
I use both ends, but I really do enjoy the pointed end for putting a light dusting of color under the eye when I want the "halo" effect of the smoky eye with a bright color. It's a soft brush that has lasted me going on four years and gets the job done even with daily use :)

My Preferred Liner Brush
Rating

Pros: precision
I use the wider end of the brush everyday for lining my top and bottom lashes in either loose or Ready shadows. I dip it in the shadow, press down, and wiggle to attach some shadow onto the brush, and then, I press and wiggle to apply to my eye. It always looks great. I like to use the smaller end when I want to apply the shadow "wet" by wetting the brush and dipping it in the shadow.
I do agree the little plastic end off my brush is gone, but I store all of my double-ended brushes flat in a brush roll, anyway. I still gave it five stars because I use this everyday and my eyes always look great :)

Pros: even distribution, soft
I love this brush. I apply highlighter shadow under the brow and color to the eyelid using this brush. It puts on a sheer but good saturation of color without irritating my skin. I use it with the loose and Ready shadows without any problems. I just swirl, tap, and buff with the loose and only tap and buff with the Ready :)

Pros: gentle, effective
I haven't used Bare Eyes, just this one from the BE product line, but I can say that this is a very gentle and effective eye makeup remover. I used to have to use a couple of cotton pads with my old department store brand to get all my eye makeup off, but with BE I get everything off in one go, which is great because I don't want to feel like I'm scrubbing my eyes. I LOVE my eye makeup. I use eye primer, lash primer, mascara, liner on upper and bottom, brow powder, three shades of eye shadow, and under the eye, I use a bit of concealer, and this stuff gets it ALL off in one go... to me, that's amazing :)

Pros: gentle, effective
I have been using this to clean all of my BE brushes for a couple of years now, and it gently and thoroughly cleans them all. It has also kept all of my brushes in really good condition. I haven't had to replace any of them, as of yet, and I haven't had a problem with any of the bristles coming out.

Pros: easy separation
I really love this little tool. I use the BE eyelash curler, then this comb, followed by a swipe of primer and a coat or two of mascara. I am someone who spends more time on my eyes than any other part of my face, and this little step really does make a huge difference :)

Needs Some Work

I appreciate the attempt at creating a way to make the foundation more portable, but my experience with this product really wasn't good. I've owned it since 2009 or 2010, and it just sits in a box because I haven't thrown it away yet. In all that time, I used it a couple of times, but there were so many problems with it leaking or just generally making a mess when you try to put product in it. I was also not a fan of the brush because it didn't give enough coverage. It was a really great idea, which I really wanted to love, but in the end, since it's been sitting in a box until I justify throwing 30 dollars in the trash, it wasn't a good investment. I keep hoping I'll find someone who might appreciate it that I can pass it along to rather than trashing it.

Awesome Mineral Veil Brush

Pros: super soft
I do love this brush, though I only use it with the Hydrating Mineral Veil because I know it's formulated to best work with that product. I do love how it feels on my skin, though. It's very similar to the soft focus face brush, which I love. I just keep my use of it to the product which it was designed for :)

Pros: finishing touch, airbrushed look
This product really is that finishing touch that just makes your whole face come together and look radiant. It sets your makeup to stay in place. For example, I used to apply blush over my Mineral Veil thinking I would blend the blush into my face if I did blush first... blush didn't last all day. I tried putting the blush under my Mineral Veil, and to my surprise, my blush was not disturbed when I buffed the Mineral Veil over it, and it lasted all day. I wouldn't go without it :)

 Secret Radiance - REMIX Edition

Secret Radiance (golden candlelit sheen)
 
How does this compare to Clear Radiance? I am curious about the color.
i truly enjoy Clear Radiance...especially around my cheek bones and under eye area. Is this close to clear or dos it have any type of hue to it?
I have very fair skin and wear Golden Fair foundation. I also enjoy using a Radiance to "wake-up" my face, and I have not had any issue with Secret Radiance casting a color on me (which my face will pick up almost any color with it being so fair). It looks very natural on me and leaves a glowing complexion. I was able to test this product at my local Ulta before I bought it... I hope I was able to help you and good luck! :)

What is the best radiance for medium tone skin with a ruddy complexion or red splotches?
I have some reddish coloring on my olive skin...I would like to use Radiance but the right kind...thank you for your help!
I also have some redness on my nose, forehead, and the cheek area around the nose. I find using a little extra of my foundation (Golden Fair) on the red areas gives me an even complexion, and I don't have to worry about the Pure, Clear, or Flawless radiance colors making me look red... I hope this helps and good luck :)

what is the difference betwen the Radiance products and the All Over Color products?
I have med. skin with yellow skin tones and blonde hair, green eyes. I am confused.
Radiance products just bring a light and glow to your face, whereas the colors will have a slight tint to them. I also have yellow undertones, brown hair, and blue eyes. I have fair skin, wearing a Golden Fair foundation, and so I find the face color products kind of detract from my natural skin tone color (which I think is gorgeous thanks to BE skin care). I just use the radiance to let my natural skin tone shine through... I hope this helps you and good luck! :)

What Radiance color is best for medium skin tone with yellow undertones?
I wear golden medium foundation and want to know which Radiance shade will look the best. I have yellow undertones and medium skin, black hair. I don't really want to wear this as a blush. Any suggestions?
I usually use Pure Radiance applied with a soft focus face brush all over my face. I have dark brown hair and wear Golden Fair, so I do have the yellow undertones, as well. It seems my skin is just a little more fair than yours, so I hope this helped :)

How does this compare to flawless radiance?
I have tried a few of the options from the radiance collection but I haven't found one that has satisfied my search for that dewey radiant look. Is this product more noticeable?
I use this in addition to radiance and apply radiance on more of my face since it is so subtle. I would say this is definitely more noticeable than the radiance, so I would be prepared to only use a very small amount in very strategic places for this product. It's likely to just make you look "pink" or "yellow" all over, otherwise. That being said, my skin is very, very fair, and so the product may just look that strong on my skin tone. I use Golden Fair foundation and Pure Radiance... I hope I helped some :)
