The solution to my dark circles

Pros: best for dark circles, long lasting
Ever since I can remember I've had dark circles under my eyes, even when I get plenty of sleep. Now that I'm past 40 these have become more prevalent. In the boutique they showed me this correcting concealer and I found that the circles went almost completely away. It's too heavy for anything but under my eyes, but that's really all I need it for. It lasts a long time too. I've used this every day for four months and I can see the bottom of the container but I've probably got 2 or 3 weeks left.
The other thing I like is although it's fully pigmented coverage it comes off with my normal makeup remover and doesn't irritate that sensitive skin. I've tried other brighteners and concealers, and this is the best by far. If you're in a similar situation I'd definitely try it.

I bout the Rare Find because I wanted a soft green and I thought the other colors would work well together. I'm more than please with all four of them. I used to use Warmth under my crease shadow and now I don't need to because of the colors included. I like the two lighter colors as well. One is sparkling and one is matte, so you can go from day to night. Like all BM shadows I find the pigmentation great and the shadows last all day even without primer. I would highly recommend these palettes to anyone who doesn't like loose shadows. This definitely won't be the last one I buy.

What a great pallette

Pros: solid pigmentation
I've been eyeing this palette for a little while now and I'm glad I took the plunge. These colors are great, go well together and have great pigment that lasts all day even without primer. I use the darker colors for liners as well as the liner colors since I like to be a bit unconventual. I spent a few hours trying different combinations. I haven't tried to remove the little compact but I think it's a great idea. Since these colors last all day I don't need to touch up, but if I was out for a night on the town it will be perfect.
The other great thing about this palette is the brush. It is much better than almost any other brush in a palette. I was about to buy a brush for my upper eye and now can put that off because of the soft end of this one.
Twelve colors, a great brush and a removable compact... you really can't get any better than that.

My lashes are long enough they already brush against my glasses. What I was looking for was volume without the length. In the boutique they explained that the brush shape has a lot to do with how the mascara works. The shape of this adds huge amounts of volume and make my eyes really pop. I would recommend this without hesitation.

Exactly the brush I needed

I was new to the idea of a powder liner and could never seem to get the right level of coverage. I always wanted a cleaner line. Enter the precision brush. I'm able to put the liner pigment exactly where I want it. It picks up enough pigment to last day into night. If you want a clean line, this is probably the brush for you.

I'm someone who has a love/hate relationship with makeup. In recent months I made a point to take better care of myself, and part of that was going into the BM store and admitting I had no clue what I was doing. They used the Perfect Ten colors to show me different looks and helped me in application. I've been using it about four months now and I've just made a huge purchase of more eye color and lipgloss. I'm still unsure about the blush, usually I just go with the warmth. Catch this now - you can't beat the price - and get one for a friend. It really is a Perfect Ten

How do I tell if I am a cool or warm undertone?
I have fair, Oregon skin, blue eyes, and dirty blondish hair. I think I am cool, but I don't know how to tell. What's the trick.
You're probably cool. What you could do is go to a regular drug store and try and color match. I would certainly advice you go with BM stuff, but that will tell you which shade you are. If you have a BM boutique near you that would be your best bet.
