Is anyone else a big fan of BN Cosmetics?  I just bought some eyeshadow refills to create my own neutrals palette and I can believe how incredible the pigment is and how smooth and blendable!! Cant wait to try the Lumiere colours!

I have there 5 color blush wheel and it's pretty nice. It's only $20 and you barely need any, so it lasts forever. The final seal setting spray works pretty well too.

I love Ben Nye.  They haven't sold out to the big boys after all these years... and they care more about the integrity of their product than the money they make... that is just so rare. 

I'm sorry it took Kim Kardashian to put them on the map....they should have been recognized for their superior products a long time ago

I really like Ben Nye - the powders, eyeshadows & the creme blush, lipgloss & fireworks wheels are all so lovely and purse & kit friendly too!

I get all my BN stuff from CRC Mary. I agree, they dont do big expensive Ads and keep their packaging simple, but the quality of their product is never compromised :-)

Big fan here. Love the loose and pressed powders, they are staples in my kit. I also love my Fireworks wheel, the powder blushes, brow pencils, lip pencils, lipgloss wheel, cream blush wheel (though not a fan of the singles), lumiere shadows, Final Seal, scar wax, glitters, cake liner, character wheels, and the brush cleaner, although not my fave, is not bad in a pinch and their prices are ah-mazing.

Glad I found this! I was looking to add more neutrals to my kit, and have been see-sawing between inglot and ben nye. I have not tried ben nye eyeshadow, but if it's anything in feel and quality to ther blushes I know I'll love it. I see the inglot 3 color squares as very space saving and cost effective though, and I know they have great formula.

Anyone in this forum tried both the ben nye and inglot eye shadows?

I'm adicted to BN blushes, as well as their banana and nutmeg powder, i'm probably going to add cameo soon.

No, I don't think so.. They have the best creme liner on the market and are used by pro makeup artist that know..
Also, Ben Eye Mellow Yellow is used by many Playmates during the 80's and 90's. (Not sure about now)
Ben Nye is pro line...

lol...no it has been for very long a good product especially the foundations..love them! and not thanks to Kim Kardashian, this products where quite well used throughout different well-know soaps like the B&B...

I hope it does't go mainstream, as the same thing would happen with MAC, the professional line went down in favour of the consumer line

I think kk did out them on the map in the eye of the general consumer. I'm a little embarrassed to say that's how I found out about Ben Nye but not embarrassed to say I have since purchased a few if their wonderful products. Can't wait to try more.

The inglot eyeshadow are really pigmented. It's bendable and easy to use. I love it!! It's super affordable and they have a pro discount.

I love Ben Nye eyeshadows, not a fan of most of the other stuff. I use the powders too, the pinkish one and white one. I'm not a MUA but I do drag so ya know. La Femme eyeshadows are also super pigmented. Krylon isnt bad either.

My first interesting in makeup was pinged while doing theatre as a child.  Discovered Ben Nye back in the early 90s when some products were used for our stage productions.  That's what I love about Ben Nye and Kryolan, they have a unique smell from other makeup lines that really reminds me of being backstage in a theatre.  How can you not love that??

what I mean by Kim put them on the map is that she brought the name to consumers.... Trust me, I sell the brand and the minute her artist put banana powder on her sales went crazy and haven't let up yet.  Regular consumers had for the most part never looked at the brand outside of Halloween and stage makeup. KK started the snow ball with consumers
