Great new foundation!

Phrases Chosen: gorgeous!, full coverage, flawless
I have been a faithful Bare Minerals fan for many years using the Original and the Matte powder foundations, but this new foundation blew me away! I have gotten compliments from TOTAL STRANGERS in the street, my friends ask me why I look so good, even my dad noticed my skin looked pretty. It is totally awesome!
I got the new precision brush and it is amazing as well, soft to the touch, makes me wanna put my foundation on, and best of all, gives me full coverage and bright, fresh-looking skin. I have oily skin and it is still matte at the end of the day, no shine at all which is nice. However, I feel it hydrates my skin as well and it is definitely not drying.
A little goes and looooong way! And it has soooo much staying power it's ridiculous. Mid-afternoon/early evening I look at my skin and the foundation is still going strong... No need for touch-ups.
You need to get shade matched for sure! It will make all the difference. I dare anyone to use this foundation and not like it! It's pretty much impossible!

Phrases Chosen: contour
I read the previous review on this and I agree, this brush packs a little too much color to use as a blush brush. I use just a little bit of of tropical radiance, and it seems to go a looooong way!
I did find the brush very useful for contouring my face precisely because the brush packs more color. I use it around my jawline and the outside part of my cheeks to slim my face a bit and I think it looks great.

This is the first set of glosses and lipsticks I have ever bought from BE and I cannot say a bad thing about them. The colors are great, the Sherbet color is very nude, light pink, and beautiful. I always get tons of compliments when I wear it. You can wear it alone or with the matching gloss for shine (same for the gloss, definitely pretty on its own).
The Rose Crepe color is also very pretty, darker, I tend to use it more at night. It's nice when you want a bolder lip color. It does not disappoint! Use it alone or with the darker gloss!!!
I totally recommend this kit if you just wanna try new shades, or are new to BE lip colors.

Beautiful colors, but hard to keep them in place!

Phrases Chosen: great colors, colors get everywhere
This palette had everything going for it: great colors, nice huge mirror, plus a handy brush to go along. It could've been totally travel-friendly, but it falls short of that. The colors are hard to get out of the little recipients and they kinda get all over the palette if you're not careful. If you have a lot of patience and take your time you can minimize the waste of shadow, but still it's really annoying if you're looking just for a quick touch up. If you can handle the mess and have plenty of time to put your makeup on, I would recommend this only for it's beautiful colors.

Great liner shadow. I always get compliments when I wear it! My eyes are somewhat hazel/light brown (they change color depending on the light) and this really highlights them! Brings out the gold flecks and the green comes through.
It's easy to put on with the liner brush and since it's a powder you can add more or less depending on the effect you want to achieve.

I was pretty skeptical about buying this shade since it seemed like it would be too yellow, I was totally wrong!! The color is beautiful, once you put it on it shimmers and there is lots of gold color coming through, although it's not over the top. It can be though, if you foil it! =)
It's also versatile since you can just use a little on your brow bone or put it over the entire lid. I just love it! It's a little bit darker than the photo online, but it will not disappoint you!

Phrases Chosen: perfect
I only have good things to say about this starter set! I purchased it 3 years ago when I heard about Bare Minerals on the internet and have never used anything else since! Many of my friends ended up buying for themselves afterward!
The brushes are super soft and the instructions make it easy even for those who don't know a lot about makeup. You can add as much coverage as you want, plus using warmth gives you that special sun-kissed glow in the end. To finish off, you can use a bit of mineral veil which will give your face a soft focus finish. Just gorgeous!!! Highly recommend this kit!

Great eyeliner for those who have difficulty lining the eyes, it is very easy to use. This liner glides on very smoothly and doesn't smudge. I put it on in the the morning and it's still on in the afternoon. The espresso color is great also, not so dramatic for daytime use, but it gives a nice touch to the eyes! I highly recommend this product and totally want to buy all the colors now!!

Foundation match?
I wear the MEDIUM in the powder and Elizabeth said in the video that you might want to go one shade up from what you use. What is the next shade after MEDIUM?
I wear medium in the powder and now use Medium Beige in the ready foundation and it is perfect!

Is this foundation good for really, really oily skin?
I have tried the bareminerals original foundation and like the look, however I need something with stronger oil absorbing properties.
I think you will like this for sure! My skin is very oily during the summer months, and this foundation does the trick. No shine at all; by the end of the day my skin looks like I just put on foundation. I would definitely give it a go. Get shade matched first since it will make all the difference.

Between the ready and Bareskin, which formula is more sweat proof for summer?
I am debating between the two foundations never trying either yet. I want a somewhat sweat proof formula that won't completely be removed when wiping my mouth when eating, etc.
I would definitely try this foundation. For me, it has the best staying power. At night I get home and it is still going strong.

Could someone help me with eyeliner application tips?
I really struggle with applying my eyeliner. Could anyone give me any tips or advice? Also, what's the best way to use the smudger tip?
I would say start out slowly, less is more when learning. When I started using eyeliner (not too long ago!) I found it easier to line the bottom part first. It really gives you a nice daytime look, not to strong. Start at the outer corner and work inwards. Once you have this mastered move on to the top lash, which I believe is harder to do well. The top part I find easier to start at the inner corner and work outwards. Line as close as you can to the top line for a polished look, or else you'll end up with a more nighttime look!

Use the smudger if you want a softer line so you can blend in with the eyeshadow. Use short strokes and stop as you go along looking at the results you're getting. That way you can adjust the application as you go along.

Hope this helps!!

My skin is between light and medium and my hair is brown but not really dark. What color base is right for me?
I don't burn easily and I don't have (and I don't get freckles).
I would try the medium (which is a neutral shade). It seems to work for most people. If you're not sure, you can always go to a store and try them on your skin. The medium is not too light and not too dark! =)
