Not quite what I expected

I was looking at this product for awhile, trying to decide if I should buy it if not. Overall, I like the eye liner, but it isn't quite perfect.
The application is very smooth, but I have to make multiple lines to get the boldness I am looking for. Even then, it doesn't last 12 hours, which I want. The blender isn't necessary because the pencil is so soft. Also, when I chose orchid, I thought it would actually be purple. Not so. It's more of a chestnut-plum. I like wearing brown eyeshadow with this eyeliner (better than purple shades). I'm making it work, even if it falls short of what I expected.

Pros: great for oily skin
I have used this moisturizer for the past two years. It is a fantastic product for my skin. Upon the first use, I was in love. My skin did not have to adjust, like with some moisturizers. In fact, I used up my first bottle very quickly. Love it so much, I have to regulate my use!
My only complaint is the packaging. The bottle is deceivingly tall; there is less than half that actually contains moisturizer. When you're out, that's it. Normally I have a clue that I will soon run out if a product; not true with this one. And because of the way the bottle is constructed, you can't get the last bit out of the container. Again, normally I would employ tricks (unscrewing the top, storing the bottle upside down) to get the remaining product out of the bottle, but they don't work.
Now I only allow myself 1 squirt per usage to ensure it lasts longer.
I do recommend the smaller travel size containers. These typically hold 1oz and the "full size" is 1.7oz. Often you can get them as a deal/package/ or add-on with the face wash for a great price. Plus, you can actually empty the container.

Perfect under eyes

Pros: great
I bought this on the advice of a consultant in the BE boutique. I have used the powder concealer (good for blemishes, but settles into fine lines around the eyes). I have used the other cream concealer (in the pot) but that is far too heavy for the delicate skin around the eyes--also works well for blemishes, though.
This one is finally what I am looking for when I've been up late with the kids and I want to look awake! I apply primer first, then a smidge of this concealer under my eyes and dab with my ring finger to blend. It is so smooth, light, and creamy it goes on well. I follow with my BE foundation and they look seamless around my eyes. Some mineral veil and I'm all set.
This is a great product. Plus, I use such a small amount each time, I think this will last a long time.

Pros: essential, different products for different seasons
I have used BE for two years now and Mineral Veil is a must have product for those of us with oily skin. The original is my favorite; it soften and gives the illusion of great skin. Also, I love the tip about applying Mineral Veil before foundation to absorb oil--brilliant!
I have also used the tinted and illuminating formulas.
I have fair skin (usually Fairly Light) so when I bought the tinted mineral veil, I knew I was taking a risk, not trying it at the store first. I got it in the spring and loved it! There was enough color to warm up my skin, without the overbearing color in the regular warmth product. Plus, I used the tinted mineral veil in place of the original veil and another all-over color or bronzer. This was wonderful for the warmer months!
When it got cooler, I thought I would try the illuminating mineral veil. This one isn't for me, at least not for everyday use. It is very sparkly/shimmering in color. As soon as I opened it I was skeptical. I didn't care for how sparkly my face was. Maybe if I was going out it would seem more appropriate. I'm going back to original mineral veil, where I was happy.
There are lots of great products here: all silky smooth application and they last a long time.

About which shade should i get
I have a very light skin tone and dark circles under my eyes so i don't know which shade i should get please help
I don't know which foundation shade you use, but I use Fairly Light (I have used Fair also) and the consultant in store gave me "luminous 2". By itself Stroke of Light has good coverage, which I think would cover even very dark circles. When I use the concealer, I put it on prior to my foundation and they blend well together. I hope it works for you!
