BEST Cleanser Ever!!!
Rating

5 out of 5
Phrases Chosen: great cleanser, removes makeup, soft and silky
For years I have had a three-step process for removing my make-up and washing my face. I would remove my eye makeup with a skin sensitive lotion and tons of Q-tips (for the mascara), then I would use a make-up removing cleansing cloth, and THEN I would wash my face to remove "the leftovers".
This Facial Cleansing Oil has streamlined this process for me because I can do it all at once! No more taking 30+ minutes getting ready for bed anymore! It removes my stubborn eye makeup, no matter how much mascara or eyeliner I have on. It removes my long-wearing BE face makeup, which doesn't even come off after an 8 hour work day and an hour of sweating at the gym. And surprisingly enough, it lifts away the dirt and oil from my face leaving my skin feeling soft and refreshed. I love the slight scent of rose, it is so pleasant and calming. My face not only feels better, it *looks* better too. My skin tone is more even, there's no dry or flakiness (not that I had a lot to begin with, but there was some), the fine lines I began to see on my face are less noticeable, and my skin has a natural glow to it.
I have been using the cleanser 4-6 pumps at night (follow the directions on the bottle, it makes a difference) depending on how much makeup I am wearing, and 2 pumps in the morning just to refresh my skin. I've used less than 1/3 of the bottle in the past 4 weeks, so I am expecting this to last 3+ months (definitely worth the price).
The combination of switching to BE skincare and BE makeup has made a HUGE difference for me overall. I will be using BE for life :)

Phrases Chosen: silky, good moisturizer, nice scent
I love this product, and am hooked for life. I have not tried the Renew & Hydrate Eye Cream so I cannot compare, but this one is great. It feels so silky and smooth (not greasy), and is SO lightweight you don't even notice it. It doesn't clog my pores, and it is great for sensitive skin. I have used it every night before bed for the past month and the skin is less puffy around my eyes, my "bags" are practically nonexistent, the fine lines around my eyes diminished and became less noticeable (although not gone completely) and the dark circles faded slightly. I hope that I will continue to see even more positive results with continued use of the product.
One thing everyone should know. The product is solid. You just have to gently rub your fingertip over the top of it for a few seconds to release the oil (warms instantly). Don't try to stir it or anything, that's not how it is designed to work. You don't need a lot either, it spreads very well so one jar will probably last 6 months (maybe even longer).

Perfect Mascara!
Rating

Phrases Chosen: amazing, favorite, soft & thick lashes, everyday use
I have tried three different BE mascaras so far, and this is definitely my favorite! It is absolutely perfect for every day use. It coats my lashes evenly, doesn't clump or flake, doesn't smudge easy. It leaves them feeling soft (not brittle like other non-BE brands), and I have no problems washing it off with the Mineralixirs Facial Cleansing Oil. It adds natural-looking volume to my lashes without making them look fake, or overtly dramatic. I always get compliments on my eye make-up when I wear it to the office.
Thanks BE for another amazing product that I can't live without :)

Like this product, but it's not magic
Rating
3 out of 5
3 out of 5
Phrases Chosen: brightens eyes, adds sheen, no more bags
Thanks to graduate school, a stressful career field, and my mixed genetics, I have chronic "raccoon eyes" and "crow's feet" underneath my eyes and my lower lids. I like this product because it decreases eye puffiness, keeps them moisturized and doesn't irritate my skin. The little light-refracting "pearls" leave a nice, very sheer, sheen over the tops of my eyelids.
I'm giving it 3 stars because I haven't noticed ANY effect on the fine lines underneath my eyes, and only a mild effect on the dark circles (even though I have been using it daily for about 2 months now). I thought it was going to be like magic in a tube based on the other reviews that I'd read, so I am a little disappointed. However, I must say that it does look very nice underneath the Stroke of Light Eye Brightener with some Original Foundation and Original Mineral Veil, or just Tinted Mineral Veil on my "no make-up" days. Using it in combination with the other products makes a difference, so I will probably purchase it again. I am hoping if I use it for a longer time period that I will notice more of a difference.

Phrases Chosen: easy to apply, very sparkly, bit messy
I ordered Moonshine and Vapor, and they're great! Wish there was a golden type of color available. Vapor gives you a perfect smokey eye with some black liner and mascara. Moonshine is more like a soft pink with a lot of sheen to it. It's more shiny than glittery, as though the glitter was mixed in homogeneous rather than randomly sprinkled like most eye shadows.
Application process is easy, I like the built-in wand that comes with it. You do need to scrape off excess before application, or it will get everywhere. Probably best to wait to do any concealer or under-eye stuff until after you've applied this shadow. Very easy to remove with almost any eye makeup remover.
I'm giving it three stars because it's messy. I don't like that when I come home from work the shadow has migrated to my lower lid. I'm picky that way, I like my eyeshadow on my actual eyelid and I like it to stay there. But no matter what I seem to do, I have yet to find a remedy to this. I wish the Velvet Eyecolor line made some sparkly shadows rather than matte (don't let the pictures fool you), because I don't seem to have that problem with them.

Great Brush!
Rating

Phrases Chosen: adjustable coverage, easy to use
I love this brush for foundation because it provides as much, or as little coverage as I want. It evenly distributes your make-up during the application process, unlike some other brush brands I've used (not BE products of course lol). I use the original foundation, and it works perfect with it. I've also used this brush with the tinted Mineral Veil and it works great with that product as well. Swirl, tap, and buff technique is a must-use for this brush to work its magic for you :)
The only reason I gave this brush a 4 instead of a 5 is because I wish the bristles were a little softer and a little less stiff. But I think the brush has to be made that way for it to be able to provide the type of adjustable coverage it does (which is my favorite part). That being said, I probably wouldn't use any other brush for my foundation anyways.

Favorite Face Brush
Rating
5 out of 5
5 out of 5
Phrases Chosen: soft, everyday use
This is my favorite brush because it is so versatile. It came with my Complexion Essentials Get-Started Kit, and I'm so glad for it. I use this brush mostly to apply Pure Radiance over my cheeks and brow bone, sometimes using it on the bridge-of-nose, forehead and chin area. I have also used it to apply Mineral Veil over my entire face, but I like to have one brush dedicated per product so colors don't get mixed up.
It provides light-to-medium coverage. I don't own many BE brushes (I also have the Maximum Coverage Concealer Brush & the Heavenly Face Brush), but it is the softest of those three and definitely way softer than the drugstore and other online retailer brushes that I've owned. I've washed it twice with the BE Brush Conditioning Shampoo. It cleans and reshapes easily, and I haven't had any shedding issues.

Phrases Chosen: extremely useful, necessary
I love this product. I had no idea that my brushes were so dirty until I used this! It cleaned them very well, no bristles fell out, and they were even softer than when they were new. If you want to keep your professional BE brushes looking and feeling new, then this is a must-have product. I clean mine once a month with this.

A MUST HAVE!

Phrases Chosen: perfect coverage, easy application
I received this in my Complexion Essentials Get-Started Kit and you will have to pry this brush out of my cold, dead hands before I will give it up. I use it with the Stroke-of-Light Eye Brightener around my entire eye area to cover up dark circles, minimize fine lines and puffiness, and give an overall "bright-eyed" effect. It is SUPER SOFT, non-irritating and makes it super-easy to apply products around the eye area. That is definitely saying something from a girl who consistently still pokes herself in the eye with mascara wands. It is basically goof-proof for those of us who are less-skilled at applying make-up.
Definitely a must-have to apply any sort of product around the eye area!

Phrases Chosen: beautiful skin, lightweight, soft & smooth skin
I am SO sad to see this product in the Last Chance section. I love it so much because for the first time in years I can actually look myself in the mirror and tell myself that I look pretty with no make-up on. It is all thanks to the BE skincare line.
This product has replaced my nighttime moisturizer. My skin is completely improved! No breakouts, no dryness, all while giving me super soft and smooth skin. While I don't have many wrinkles being that I'm 26, I swear it has improved the fine lines I began to see on my face and evened out my skin tone (in combination with other BE products and the fabulous make-up).
This is a MUST to my nightly routine. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE BRING IT BACK!!!

I'm not sure if that is harmful on extensions or not, so here is a list of the ingredients per the BE website: Water, Beeswax (Cera Alba/Cire D'abeille), Bis-Diglyceryl Polyacyladipate-2, Palmitic Acid, Euphorbia Cerifera (Candelilla) Wax (Candelilla Cera/Cire De Candelilla), Stearic Acid, Triethanolamine, Styrene/Acrylates/Ammonium Methacrylate Copolymer, Hydrolyzed Quinoa, Methyl Methacrylate Crosspolymer, Butylene Glycol, Phenoxyethanol, Tocopheryl Acetate, Caprylyl Glycol, Xanthan Gum, Myristic Acid, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Silica, Malachite Extract, Potassium Sorbate, Ethylhexylglycerin, Iron Oxides (Ci 77499).

About which shade should i get
I have a very light skin tone and dark circles under my eyes so i don't know which shade i should get please help
Top 100 Contributor
Go through Bare Minerals Foundation Finder (http://www.bareescentuals.com/on/demandware.store/Sites-BareEscentuals-Site/en_US/Home-Show#ShadeFinder-Show). When you get to the shade-matching section, take notice of which phrase the shade you use falls under...either light, medium, tan, dark, or deep. Luminous 1 goes with "light", Luminous 2 goes with "medium", Luminous 3 goes with "tan", luminous 4 goes with "dark" and "deep". I wear medium tan and use Luminous 3.

Hope this helps!
