Favorite brush

Phrases Chosen: nice
I haven't actually tried this brush with any BE concealers, but it is a huge improvement over the brush I was using before. I love that it doesn't get clogged with product after one use (I wash every 3-4 uses) like my previous brushes (not from BE).
Further, I used it with a creamy liquid under-eye concealer which i dab unto my finger. Then i use the brush and pat it around my eyes. Once all the product is applied, I pat it again with the brush. I barely have to blend with my finger! The coverage is perfect.
I also like to use this brush with my BE foundation to achieve a little more coverage around problem areas (redness around my nose). I find with this that I don't need to use concealer there every day.

Good lipstick, great colors

Phrases Chosen: creamy
I can't comment on the container that others have complained about since I bought the "Kiss and Tell" collection which comes with sample sizes. I also received a sample of Be Free with a recent order.
This lipstick is very high quality, although for the price I'm not sure I would buy the full-sized versions except of the exceptional color Get Ready (see below). This lipstick is incredibly rich and creamy and leaves doesn't dry out my lips. I've used it with and without lipliner and haven't had any problems with bleeding (although I do not have fine lines around my mouth). When used with lipliner, and using the typical method for applying lipstick, this lipstick is long lasting and the colors and range of colors are beautiful. (For reference: the typical method is, lipliner all over lip, apply, blot, apply powder (I use some old maybelline foundation or mineral veil), and apply again, and blot. Try this method before you write this product off.)
Colors: Overall I would say the pictures are true to color (except Be Free) but the descriptions are not always.
*Go all out: Vibrant Barbie doll pink. Definitely not a good color for work but a beautiful spring color that I have not been courageous enough to wear yet. Maybe soon.
*Speak your mind: Rich ballerina pink. This color is almost pure pink with no red, purple, or orange undertones. A great every day color for spring and summer. Great with my skin tone.
*Get ready: A purplish red. I would not call this a "warm rosy pink" as the website does. I find the color to be much more red. This is my absolute favorite color of any lipstick I've owned. It's very beautiful and I believe would be a very nice go-to red for anyone with light and medium skin. I think it would appear more muted on someone with darker skin, but would still be beautiful.
*Break away: Redish-brown mauve. Not a bad color but not for me. I believe it to be a little to intense a mauve for my (very) light skin tone. There is some nice red in there but I would call the color mostly brown.
*Be bold: Blackberry. Seems to be discontinued. I don't love this color because berry isn't the color for me but it is a very nice, pure berry color if that's what you're into.
*Be free: Light caramel. This has to be the absolute ugliest color I have ever seen. It's a little less golden than a piece of caramel. Definitely not flattering for light skin, and I can't imagine it would look good on darker skin either. Definitely not a creamy "pink" nude. It is pure brown.

Which red?
I am FAIR with pink tones to my skin with reddish hair and blue eyes. I want to try a red lipstick. What color do you think I should try? I was thinking the scarlet color because of the blue tones it would have, but I like the vibrant red of the cherry red color. Any advice ladies?
I have the same skin tone and strawberry blonde hair and blue eyes. I looovvveeeeee Get Ready. (I find it to be red and not pink as the website suggests. It has a bluish tone and I think would look great with anyone with our complexion. I haven't tried the cherry red (Live it Up) but as long as it's not orangey (it doesn't appear to be on the website) then it should look fine with your skin! I also think Call the Shots looks great on the website but I haven't tried that either.

Does this product have a scent?
I tried one of the lipglosses before and got very nauseated from the scent.
I tried a sample of the lipgloss and it smelled like chocolate. I liked the scent but I understand that some wouldn't. These lipsticks (at least the colors I own) are unscented in that they are fragrance-free (or at least don't smell like they have added fragrance). However, they do have a smell. A very typically lipstick smell. So if that smell bothers you then perhaps you get a sample before buying.
