Feeling pretty!

Confession time... I had stopped using most of my BareMinerals foundation. I started with the original more than 10 years ago and switched to the Ready foundation upon launch. About a year an a half ago I felt like it was making me skin look really ashy and too made up so I decided to try another brand's tinted BB cream. Needless to say, I fell in love with it. When this foundation came out I swore I wouldn't try it and then it showed up on my doorstep so I decided to give it a go. I have to admit, I'm pretty mad because I love this new foundation. I'm mad because I've stockpiled the BB cream and now I don't want to use it. Every morning I have to have a conversation with myself about using the old stuff but I keep reaching for the bareSkin.
PROS: Soft, dewy finish; natural looking, but buildable to a medium coverage (I do not like full coverage); a little goes a long way (I use 2-3 drops) so I expect this bottle to last a long time
CONS: Coverage is best with a brush (though I think the brush they designed for this is too small--I feel like I am buffing forever and my wrist gets sore).

Love the bronzer/highlighter duo!

I have been waiting for either mini ready products or for duos just like this. If you love the High Dive bronzer and are looking for a gorgeous highlight to go with, then look no further. This luminzer is a really warm color-perfect for my tan skin (and the upcoming summer). Closer to the Shining Moment than the Love Affair (so less pink). This duo is going to be prefect for travel!
The balm is nice, but not a must have. The color is neutral and there is a nice smell to it (my nose doesn't work very well so unfortunately, can't give the exact scent, sorry). I consider it a bonus. The upside is that it doesn't melt in my pocket!
The brush seems rather flimsy to me-not very dense at all. I have a really small face so I prefer to use a brush that is a little more dense and contact for a bronzer (so it doesn't get all over my face). I think the brush is better suited for a soft sweep of the luminzer.
I'm considering buying a backup since it is limited edition even though I'm not in love the balm and brush. I do love the duo a lot!

I have three quads, two duos, an 8.0 and eye shadows in the Light Show palette and Fired Up (Sephora). I can say without a doubt that these are my all time favorite shadows.in the quads I have The Truth, which is a wonderful everyday neutral. I use the Happy Place and the A- List when I'm wanting a little more color. I love every single one of these quads. The shadows go on so beautifully and blend so well. I can honestly say that my makeup has never looked better. Before the ready shadows, I only wore shadows on occasion. Now I wear them nearly every day because they are just so much fun and make me feel really pretty. The nice thing about the quads is that you can create a subtle day look and use the same palette and bump it up for the evening. I use the eye primer and these shadows last all day and well into the evening. I can't say that about other products I have used in the past.

Can you make a tutorial using this?
I was just wondering if you guys could make a basic, everyday, neutral eye look using the READY eyeshadow 4.0 in The Truth. I just love your tutorials and I would really appreciate it!
I don't have a video to show, here's what I do… This is my absolute favorite eye palette in the Ready line (really, of all time)--definitely my "go to" eye look. For day, I sweep Serendipitous all over the lid and as a highlight under my brows. I use Magnetism in the crease, Fate in the outer V, and Apropos as a liner. For an evening look, I use Serendipitous under the brow and as an inner corner highlight, Magnetism on the lid, Fate in the crease, and Apropos in the outer V. Underneath the eye, I line with Fate and follow with Apropos in the outer corner. I also follow with a darker brown pencil liner on the top lid and in my waterline.
