I purchased the blackest black several months ago and it's still going strong! I've always loved Maybelline mascaras, and now this liner too. I typically do a subtle wing on my top lids, and this gel formula lasts all day without smudging.
I purchased the sunscreen in fairly light for my mother, and tried it myself once she opened it. I wasn't completely happy with the minimum coverage, but it is still ideal for a day at the beach.
I've been using BM religiously for over a year. My mom suggested I get the starter kit, and I was hooked ever since. I especially love the radiance collections, and recommend investing in a great set of brushes. Like others, I was hesitant I wouldn't have the same coverage I was used to in a liquid foundation. But BM even hides my blemishes. I adore Bare Escentuals and always look forward to new products.
I'm a die-hard bare escentuals user and tend to have oily skin. the mineral veil does a fantastic job at keeping my make-up set. it can dry my skin around the nose area in the colder months, but the hydrating mineral veil is good for those times.
