More glitter than shimmer
Rating
3 out of 5
3 out of 5
Phrases Chosen: very sheer
I already tried to add a more in depth review , but for some reason it hasn't shown up on the site. To save time, I'll just use the review I submitted to Ulta for this set.
I love BE moxie so as soon as I saw this set online I had to order it. Now that it's arrived I'm somewhat torn. I knew it was super shimmery but after trying it on it's slightly more glittery. When standing at a distance you don't notice the glitter too much, it just shines. However, there is definitely a difference between this & my other shimmer moxies.
As for the colors they were all lovely & versatile. There is more of a wash of glittery color rather than highly pigmented saturation. I plan to add these on top of some of my fall color moxies for a boost of shine rather than wearing alone since there isn't enough color saturation for fall when I'm a little pale.
I like this set but I won't be purchasing again once they're gone.

Flawless Radiance

Phrases Chosen: slightly shimmery
I like the Radiance collection, but I'm just not 100 % sure about this one. I find it slightly shimmery, but not necessarily bad. I use it everyday and have for several months now.
I'm gonna play around with it some more and see if I think it makes a difference in a good way, bad way or maybe if the Clear Radiance would work better. Not sure yet, but it's worth a try.
Hope this helps!

Pure Radiance
Rating
5 out of 5
5 out of 5
Phrases Chosen: great color for fair skin
I use the Bare during the warmer months as a Bronzer and it gives just the right amount of color for fair skin so that it doesn't appear fake or orange. I recently switched from Bare Radiance to the Pure Radiance since it's turning Fall and getting cooler.
I have red undertones, and when I even out my skin tone with enough foundation, it can appear washed out since I'm also very fair. Pure Radiance helps give me that natural color but not so much that it looks sun kissed, which is not very realistic in the Fall/Winter.
I haven't used it long so I can't remember for sure, but I want to say it has more of a Matte finish to it unlike the slight shimmer in the Clear Radiance.
Hope this helps!

Phrases Chosen: great bronzer for fair skin
I'm a fair skinned gal and during the Summer, I love how this gives me just an extra little touch of color without looking fake or orange. During the colder months I switch to Pure Radiance which still gives a hint of color, but it's more subtle and peachy rather than sun kissed.
I apply it lightly over my foundation prior to blush so I don't get too much color on my cheeks. I use light even strokes to apply it in the shape of the number 3 or in reverse for the other side of the face. I start at my inner brow bone by my nose and gently sweep it around the top of my brow and down following my cheekbone and then back around and down along my jawline toward my chin. Then I sweep a tiny bit down the length of my nose and across the tip for that look like you just came in from being outdoors.
This particular Radiance isn't sparkly like some of the others so it's very versatile. Hope this helps!

Nice set, but repeat from last year
Rating

Phrases Chosen: same as last season
Good news is the set is really great. Bad news is, if you already have it from last year and haven't used it all up there's no new selection. If you didn't get a chance to grab it, now you have another chance.
I really like the colors, the size is great to throw in your purse and for the price it's a great way to try out several new shades. I just wish for those of us who already have this, the would come out with a new set or 2 before Christmas.

Phrases Chosen: from the emerald city
I love this color. It's a lovely shimmer and truly reminds me of the Emerald City, Oz. The coverage is good and the shimmer is wonderful, which I hope you can see from the pictures. Very nice and will definitely enjoy wearing it.
In pictures, I applied 2 coats on bare, moisturized skin with mascara only.
Hope this helps!

Wildflower
Rating

5 out of 5
Phrases Chosen: enchanted fairy color
Wildflower is a shimmer which I always buy and love. I applied it using the foiled technique which lasts longer for me and increases the shimmer. In the pictures I've added, I applied 2 layers of the wildflower on my moisturized bare skin and added some mascara and that's it. I hope you can see the pearlescent shimmer this has. It almost has a slight pinkish sheen to it, but all I can say is it's beautiful.

This mascara does a great job at building volume.
Rating
5 out of 5
5 out of 5
Phrases Chosen: great volumizing mascara
I've read a lot of reviews on the definition mascara as well as the volumizing mascara and it seems like people can achieve the definition OR the volume, but not both. I think I've solved that delimma, at least for me.
I've been using the buxom Lush mascara and I like the way it stays on, but the formula tends to clump a little, especially when building volume by applying additional coats. I though I'd give the BE definition mascara a try, but really wanted to amp up the volume, which was always a problem in the past since the formula was a little too wet. I had this idea to get both the definition and volumizing formula and try them separately as well as together. Now I've figured out my magic combination.
I start by applying one good coat of definition mascara and brushing through with a clean brush to arrange my lashes. Next I added 1 to 2 coats of the volumizing mascara which builds the volume, but on a nicely set and defined base. Voila! The perfect combination (at least for me).
I also love the way it seems to last all day and doesn't irritate my sensitive eyes with yucky ingredients.
It seems a little more expensive initially, but it pans out since you have 2 tubes to go through rather than one. If you want to give it a try, I'd suggest going to a BE boutique if possible and playing around before committing to the extra expense. Hope this helps.

Phrases Chosen: too much time to apply, uses too many products
I would never have the absorbatant amount of time to apply this everyday along with the rest of my make up and fixing my hair. For a special occasion like a date night or something, it might be nice. It also uses a lot of product.
The best part, in my opinion was the tip on using the lighter shade in the center of the lower lid for that fresh look and extra pop of color. I plan on trying that out.

What's the size of the container?
I'm curious if what is sold online is the size of a BE eyeshadow or a BE foundation?
Top 100 Contributor
I'm not sure about the weight or volume, but mine is the same as the other Radiance colors. I think the container is the same size as the blush if I'm not mistaken. I want to say my foundation is the same as my mineral veil, but my blush and radiance colors are the same sizes, just a little smaller than the foundation and mineral veil.

If you want the exact weight/volume I'd call the store or CS number.

Hope this helps!

Is this product sparkly?
I love a luminous finish to my make up (think clear radiance or even the original foundation) but do not like sparkle or glitter (think true or tropical radiance). Is the finish of this product luminous or sparkly?
Top 100 Contributor
I don't find this to be sparkly like the Clear Radiance which I wear as well. I haven't tried the Tropical or anything like that, but I think this one is more of a matte finish so to speak.
When in doubt, either stop in a store to try in person or give it a try and return it if you don't like. Hope this helps!

Does this raccoon as the day goes on?
I love almost everything BE makes ACCEPT their mascaras. I find they raccoon over the course of the day. Does this one? I tend to stick to a waterproof drugstore brand and I HATE that. I'm really brand loyal and want to use only BE products....however, I can't find a mascara I like that doesn't end up underneath my eyes in a horrid black smudge. Helpful hints or product suggestions??
Top 100 Contributor
Which product are you referring to? This question popped up under the eye shadows, so I don't know if you're asking about mascara or shadow? I use both from BE and don't have any problems with either their mascaras or their shadows running. I have very sensitive eyes that water a lot and don't have to touch up my eye makeup throughout the day. Give it a try since they have like a 30 day return policy. If there are any stores around you, you should be able to go in with (sometimes without) a receipt and ask for something else. I prefer the shimmer shadows and apply them wet for the foiled technique which lasts better on me since my eyes crease inward quite a bit. I also use the flawless definition and flawless definition volumizing mascaras as well as the new lash domination.

If you have tried these and you're still having trouble, I'd say try the locked and loaded waterproof mascara top coat to prevent your mascara from running. (I've never used this, since I don't need it, but it has good reviews and you can always return it if you don't like it.) Also for the shadow, I'd recommend using an eyelid primer. There are several to choose from so you might want to call the CS to determine which is right for you or stop by a store and talk to them or try it on.

Hope this helps!

Finesse Eyecolor (light golden peach-pink sheen) (size: small)
 
What is the difference between Sheen and Shimmer eye shadows?
I know that both are frosted but what is the difference?
Top 100 Contributor
Hi, I'm not a BE specialist but I just asked this question recently. I was told that a Sheen has some shine, but it's somewhere between a Shimmer and a Matte texture. If you want lots of shine go with Shimmer. If you want a nice natural matted finish of course go with the Matte. If you want something that isn't quite so shimmering, you'd go with the Sheen. As for me the shinier the better as long as it doesn't look like glitter. Hope this helps!

Can I use eye colors as eyeliners?
What's the difference? Some of the colors here are really pretty.
Top 100 Contributor
Hi

I hope this helps, but I'm by no means a makeup specialist. I love the shimmer colors and apply them with a damp brush to give the foiled technique. I us all the shimmer eye colors & the eyeliner shadows as a liner. I apply it with a thick eyeliner brush (damp) that I bought from Eco tools. I apply just below my lower lashes and if the line is too thick, I wait until it's dry and then use a damp cotton swab to erase it until it's as thin as I'd like. I just added some pics and a review of the Wildflower shadow, which shows how I apply my shadow as eyeliner. I'll add it to this answer so maybe you'll see it sooner. Hope this helps and have fun with your colors. You can use them for lots of stuff. Also search google, I've even seen a how to on using BE eye shadows to make a nail polish!

Is the masccara gluten free?
Those of us who can not consume gluten must avoid gluten in our skin care as well. Does your mascara contain gluten?
Top 100 Contributor
I know this may not directly answer your question, but the ingredients are listed. You could try entering them into an online beauty ingredient dictionary to see what each are. Also try calling the phone CS or emailing to see if they can answer.

Hope this works for you. Good luck :)

Are your products nonallergenic?
Many makeup products irritate my skin and eyes. I have used your loose powder and like it very much. But are your eye makeup products nonallergenic?
Top 100 Contributor
I'm not sure if it's nonallergenic, but I know BE stopped selling their Buxom line from their site and stores since the plumping ingredients weren't from all natural sources. The mascaras they carry are supposed to be made with all natural ingredients.

I personally use this as well as the volumizing formula and neither bother my sensitive eyes, but everyone is different. You can try it out in one of the BE boutiques or just return it within 30 days and they will refund you if you have any problems. Hope this helps, and good luck!

I have long eyelashes, is this right for me?
I have naturally long eyelashes so I usually have to curl this before mascara so they reach their "full potential." My eyelashes are black. Thanks a million :)
Top 100 Contributor
From my personal experience I'd say this is a great formula for separating and defining the lashes. If you want extra volume, like me, I use this for the first coat and then brush to place lashes. I then follow with 1-2 coats of the volumizing mascara to build without the clumps. Hope this helps. Lucky you with those long nice lashes :)
