Pros: amazing, gorgeous, bit messy, worth the money
Why these are in the last chance section?! A friend of mine has had these for awhile, but for some reason I couldn't find them on here. I was browsing the last chance section and spotted them (the two colors I really wanted being sold together? I was thrilled!) As soon as they arrived I put them on, and OH MY GOD. These are seriously gorgeous! It really does give off that foiled look without the work, and yeah, it's a bit messy, but hey, it's glitter and that kinda comes with it, you know? The applicator is nothing to get excited about, but like others, I just apply it to a brush instead. These are really beautiful, and I hope bare minerals is planning some kind of relaunch of these (maybe in a more user-friendly container or something). You are getting two highly pigmented, glittery eyeshadows here, so the price is really not too bad. Highly recommend.

Pros: sheds, somewhat soft
This brush came with my foundation starter kit, which is fine, but I probably wouldn't purchase another. The bristles are a bit long, and they could be a bit softer in my opinion (as you are buffing, you skin can get a little sting from this brush). Someone on here said that they needed a hair removal roller after using this because it shed so bad, and I remember thinking, "Oh god, they are so exaggerative." No, no they really aren't exaggerating at all! I was in shock at how many hairs were all over my shirt after my first few uses. Not sure if it is going to eventually stop shedding so much, but not sure if I will keep using it as my main buffing brush, either. Overall, not something I would recommend unless it was free or heavily discounted.

Pros: great value, great pigmentation, versatile colors, a must-have product
I am a neutrals kind of girl (rarely do I feel bold enough to try colors), and this palette suites me perfectly! It is really a good deal for how much you get, and the colors are very nicely pigmented. I like the brush that is included (not your standard throwaway kind). These colors are great to use with other palettes as well, and you can make them bold or subtle depending on your preference. Definitely would recommend to others. Also, this palette does have a ton of fallout, so be sure you are tapping off the excess or you are going to look like a mess. These are really blend able, as well. Great palette.

Pros: not for dry skin
I have extremely dry skin, and was disappointed the first time I used the bare minerals foundation and this veil as they seemed to really accentuate my dry patches. I was applying this mineral veil beneath my foundation as I have been told that can help relieve the itchiness that newbies get when first using bare minerals. It is true that my face seems less itchy when using this beneath my foundation. BUT, I absolutely cannot use it to go over my foundation because it makes my face look horribly dry. I am not sure if it is a particular ingredient in this that is causing this reaction, but it is just awful and totally ruins the work I have put into my foundation. Really wish I could have the experience most people have with this, that it would finish everything beautifully, but it is just not the case for me. Maybe I can try the hydrating one in the future, but for now I am probably going to have to search for a different product to finish my face with (such as a setting spray).

Pros: amazing, build-able coverage, long-wearing, non-irritating, reasonably priced
I personally have very, very dry skin around my chin, sides of nose, and cheeks, yet very oily skin on my t-zone. This foundation seemed to really accentuate my dry spots the first time I used it. I applied the mineral veil beneath this foundation (it is supposed to help newbies not have so much itching) and just a bit of mineral veil on top. After some experimenting, I found that the mineral veil was a huge no-no for my dry skin, as it made areas that weren't all that dry look terribly dry. The application of this foundation (the buffing) is allegedly not good for dry skin as it is a form of micro exfoliation (and we dry skinned people know how exfoliation can be an enemy). You can use puffs to press this powder on, but I just really love buffing and have been trying to work around the dry skin issue because truly this foundation is amazing and makes my face look so even and smooth when I fist put it on. I really recommend dry skinned people to be aware that you may have issues with this foundation, and it may help to use a spray setter (a product you spray on after applying your makeup) and it helps set the bare minerals and reduce the appearance of dry patches. You must moisturize and use primer, or you will not have a good experience with this foundation. I will continue to try and make this foundation work for me because I love it so much and know it is not harming my skin like some foundations that are less natural.

Pros: good pigmentation, long-wearing, overpriced
I was really excited to get this palette and try it out. I love how beautiful the case is, and yes the colors are long-wearing (with an eyelid primer), but I really don't think I would re-purchase this at this price. The bare minerals eye palette with 8 shades is only ten dollars more, so you really aren't getting as much for your money here. And yes, the exterior of the palette is gorgeous, but I would rather pay less and have a less beautiful exterior, I guess (I want the makeup to look nicer than the palette haha). The colors are very dark on a fair skinned person, as a warning to other, go VERY lightly as the color (or lack of color..?) tide pool is extremely intense and will overwhelm your look pretty fast if you aren't careful. The more blue tinted color comes off grey for me, so it makes the whole look very dark if you aren't really light handed (dark eyes doesn't really scream summer or the beach to me..). Overall not a bad palette, but a bit overpriced and not something I would re-purchase (unless price greatly reduced).

Pros: versatile, easy-to-use
This was a splurge item for me, as I am usually fine with just using really inexpensive brushes (but I have found lately that with a higher price, you get a better brush that lasts longer). I love the shadow brush on this (the larger end) because I have somewhat smaller eyelids, and it is the perfect size for placing a bit of color on my lids without hitting my crease. The smaller end is great for doing highlights, but I am sure you could use it for other things like applying small dots of concealer. Would recommend to others looking to upgrade their brush collection like I am.

Pros: amazing, easy-to-use, perfect application
For me, this brush is a bit on the pricey side (I'm a college student). But the reviews were so great and I am really trying to use better quality tools, so I decided to splurge on this brush. So glad I did! I did not realize that a quality brush could be so much better than the drugstore ones I have been using. This brush makes doing a smokey eye SO easy, you really don't even have to try, it will do it for you! :) Would recommend this brush to anyone who does a lot of smokey eye looks or blending the crease as this brush does an amazing job of that. Also, no shedding so far, so that's a plus.

Pros: dark, long-wearing, build-able coverage, non-shimmery
I have porcelain skin (and I never try to tan because I just turn red rather than brown haha). I don't like to use self-tanners or anything either, because I am at a point in my life where I am just happy with my natural light skin and am embracing it rather than fighting it. Plus, most bronzers or tanners just make me look like an oompa loompa, or worse, cause a severe allergic reaction. This bronzer came free with my foundation starter kit, and I decided, what the heck, why not try it. Wow!!! I was totally blown away by how awesome this bronzer looks on me! I have naturally red cheeks, so I never wear blush. But I am actually able to use this bronzer to contour my cheeks a bit, and they look amazing!! I use very, VERY little (and would recommend that light skinned girls like myself do the same), like less than a drop almost is plenty if you are buffing it in well. I go back and use whatever is left on my brush to lightly smooth across my forehead, bridge of my nose, and my chin and my face just looks so much healthier but not orange or muddy at all. To those struggling with this product I would just really recommend using less and working it in slowly as it is very intense and can get crazy dark really fast. I don't see myself living without this bronzer now. One last thing, I really like how it is not shimmery, as that just is not my style and would not be appropriate for my everyday look. Love it.

Pros: soft, long lasting, moisturizing, vibrant color
I am totally in love with this lipstick! I have porcelain skin and am always a little scared to try lip shades because they either work really well or look absolutely horrible (usually absolutely horrible haha). I decided to trust another reviewer who has light skin and really recommended the shade Get Ready, and I have no regrets. I really love the red-pink color, and it lasts a really long time. It is a bright and cheerful shade that also moisturizes and feels so amazing on the lips. Will be looking forward to taking a chance on some other shades because this lipstick is just too awesome. Also, I really like the tube being a bit harder to open because I know my cap won't accidentally detach while moving around in my purse or anything. I think it's neat.

Makes your lips tingle?
I just put on some and my lips are tingling like when you use chapsticks that have menthol. Does anyone else notice this? I just want to make sure I'm not having an allergic reaction. Thanks!
Isn't it great? :) No, you are not having an allergic reaction (unless there is burning or any kind of pain or unusual swelling, then I would say yes you might be allergic).

Water line?
I heard that this does not go on waterline well, if at all. Does it last on waterline? I liked RTC for the waterline...not for much else.
Unlike the other two who answered this question, I've had the exact opposite experience from them. This liner literally will not go on my lower waterline at all. I have used a lot of other liners for my waterline and have not had an issue with them (so I don't think I am completely doing it wrong haha). Basically the one time I actually got this liner to finally smooth on my lower waterline, it faded in less than an hour. I only use this liner for non-waterline purposes because of this.

What am I doing wrong
I am having trouble using this eyeliner. It does not write on my undereye, what am I doing wrong?
If you are referring to trying to use this liner on your lower water line, then I would say that you are doing nothing wrong as I've had the exact same problem. It does not seem to go on well in that area, and even if you get it on it seems to fade in less than an hour. I'd recommend using a different liner for water lines because this one just doesn't seem to want to go there.
