The makeup is just not that great. And I've tried alot of it. The makeup is just so-so for the pricetag and has terrible longevity. The skin tint broke up on my skin, the eyeshadow was done within an hour. I loved their lipglosses but theyre so expensive for not being any better than Maybelline. The creme bronzer in a stick is really the only thing I liked and Saie has a better one.

LOVE all of their skincare products- i use the entire countermatch line (moisturizer, serum, toner, face wash) and it changed my skin for the better when used all together. my favorite is the vitamin C serum - i've tried others that make me break out and this one is just solid, gives me a glow. also the branding is on point and looks great on my counter (just an added bonus!) not sure about the makeup but would be interested in trying it based on my experience with skincare.
not a fan of the eye cream- would love to see something in a jar format, wasn't rich enough.
The products and branding are great, but I hate that it's sold by independent consultants. I know you can buy it online or in the store without one, but it's still just off-putting to me. The products I have used I've generally liked, but feel like there's more attention to the packaging than the actual product
Ive really loved their products and their mission- beauty counter was actually the first place I learned about clean beauty which I really appreciate. They have great educational material and do the hard work- like going to the senate and advocating on behalf of the WHOLE industry. I also think they are doing a good job cleaning up from an MLM to more of a pure DTC with small, high end retail locations. Their store on Prince Street is beautiful and the people who work there are lovely and helpful. Product wise- I have very dry skin with limited/no oiliness or acne. I have loved their oils, moisturizers, night cream, and makeups- especially the lipsticks with moisture in them.
Biggest concern has been price- that's why I stopped a using only their products. But, I think they are reasonable for what they offer!
Pyramid scheme corporate structure, meh products that are overpriced.
I love the mission but there are now a ton of better options in this space. Products are very basic, but priced as luxury. Not much of a sensory experience either.
I love the brand's mission and the the fact that they create clean beauty products in familiar textures and forms. I took off one point because while I think the products are good, none have replaced my daily favorites (many of which are also clean). I'm a beauty junkie so I'm a harsh critic, I think most people would be very happy with the products, I just want to be blown away!
More sophistication in product formulation, would love to see more clean innovations from BC.
Skin Type: Combination Main Skin Struggles: Large pores, fine lines/wrinkles, occasional breakouts I had a friend join BC so I ordered a few things from her and overall liked the products, but don't feel like I'm seeing huge results considering the price. The only product I would probably repurchase is the Overnight Resurfacing Peel. The packaging is super pretty and durable, and everything has a great feel when applied— ultimately just didn't see a huge difference in BC products compared to cheaper options.
