Good primer

Phrases Chosen: silky
I've found that you must prime, or foundation will just not look the same or last as long. I like this primer, although I think it might cause me to break out. I'm still investigating if the problem is with the primer or something else. I've also noticed that on some days it causes little bumps on my face to look more pronounced. In other words, the primer and I have a love hate relationship. If you have oily skin, or skin with uneven texture such as myself you might want to go with a different primer than the original.

I have tried a couple of brush cleaners, this is hands down the best. Very gentle and does an excellent job of cleansing. I wash all my makeup brushes, bm and otherwise with this shampoo and the brushes come out like new every time. Washing your brushes is necessary not only to upkeep the quality of your brushes but also to make sure you get the bacteria out of there so it doesn't cause skin problems on your face.

Good coverage but...

Phrases Chosen: creamy, good coverage
I have to say I like, not love this concealer. It's very creamy and offers decent coverage but when I put it around my eyes and it settles, it tends to get cakey and works its way into any fine lines I have in the eye area, which is quite unflattering. It does a moderate job of covering my acne scars on my face. Overall, it's okay.

Phrases Chosen: creamy
I actually use this in harmony with my concealer, I have tried it a few other ways but I found this is what works best for me. Or I use it on days when I don't do a full face in place of my concealer, so I don't look like a zombie. Make no mistake, this is not meant to take place of a concealer, but to add a little oomph. While I love the texture and creaminess of this product, and the fact that it is not glittery, I do wish this was a more "brightening". Other than that, no complaints!

Perfect shimmer

Phrases Chosen: shimmery
I purchased this color in "queen Phyllis" and I found a gem! This is the absolute perfect highlight color for right on the brow bone and also to brighten up your eyes by smudging in the tear duct area. I even use it as a highlight on the tops of my cheekbones. This color is a must have, no matter if you are doing a neutral or bright eye look. Oh, and this definitely is not a yellow color, it doesn't really have a color, mostly just shimmer.

Beautiful golden glow

Phrases Chosen: glow
I purchased this to use as a highlight on tops of my cheek bones and it gives me a lovely shimmer. I use my ring finer to press into the luminizer and gently tap on my upper cheek bone in a "c" shape to around my eye. It gives a subtle golden shimmer. I have found that throughout the day this does get a little too gold, but I think that's because my skin is oily. In my experience it is best to use your ring finer to pat the product because a brush will not pack on the color enough and it will diffuse the shimmer.

Phrases Chosen: brightening
I love this concealer, I actually use this as more than a concealer. Once I have used my cream concealer and put my foundation on, I use a fluffy brush to pat this under my eyes and downwards just slightly and also in a cross shape across the middle of my forehead and down the bridge of my nose for contour. This method works like a charm and makes my face looks bright as well as keeping those unwanted dark veins under my eyes muted.

Phrases Chosen: great pigmentation
Over my experience with bare minerals I have tried the colors hint, joyous Jennifer, vintage peach, beauty, and giddy pink (I like to switch it up.) Ihave enjoyed all of them but I think my all time favorite is vintage peach. In my opinion, it looks wonderful on all skin tones, it is a light color with just the right amount of sparkle. A little bit goes a long way, which means one jar lasts forever. The texture is creamy and perfect. Even though some of the colors seem bright in the jar, with a light hand these colors are simply perfect and the high pigmentation is unmatched by any other blush I've tried.

Staple eyeshadow brush

Phrases Chosen: awesome shape
This is the leader of eye brushes in my every day eyeshadow routine. I use this brush to sweep a soft color from my socket upward and I use the highest tip to sweep darker color in the outer corner of my eyelid, works like a dream. This is a must have brush, this shape is hard to find and bare minerals hit the nail on the head of this one. It does shed some, but not enough to bother me. I would be thrilled if they offered this brush in a little bit small of a brush size, for some detail work.

I received this mascara in a kit, so happy I did. I didn't have any expectations and when I used it BAM my lashes curled, thickened, and had tons of volume, and that's saying a lot for my super straight and short lashes. Thank you so much for introducing this new product. Please don't ever take it away!

Need help finding a blush.
My skin has cool undertones and I wear fairly medium foundation. I am looking for a shimmery blush. Any suggestions? I am brunette with hazel eyes.
Try out vintage peach. It has a touch of shimmer and is light, but definitely build-able if you would like it a little darker.
