Great everyday palette

There is a reason this palette is always sold out because it is gorgeous. The perfect neutral eye. A classic and must have staple in anyone's makeup bag. Smooth and pigmented. No fallout. I even love the little brush.

Lovely mix of taupe and purple shades. It is a perfect neutral palette with a pop of color. Perfect for spring.

Pros: long lasting
Omg, these liners are my favorite for the waterline. They are the only liners that would last and safe for my sensitive eyes. I am so glad BM brought them back in this great kit. The value is amazing and the colors are perfect. Not a dud in the bunch.

Pros: amazing deal, full size
I can not believe this incredible deal! I strayed from BM and came back and this deal was amazing to get my perfect complexion back. The very best starter kit yet! I plan to purchase again when I need to go a shade darker in the summer. Unbelievable value!

Perfect for Ready Foundation
Rating

I had a love/hate relationship with the Ready foundation sometimes it would look good and other times it could look cakey and heavy. I followed the tips and advice on this website using different brushes with the same results. Not until Stacie from the Soho shop showed me this wonderful gem. This brush allows you to build from a light to medium coverage. Never looks heavy or cakey. I get a perfect application every time! I now love my Ready foundation thanks to this brush.

Great and informative video. I like how Bareminerals is creating products in all mediums because they always do it better. Better ingredients and better technology. I like that I can trust the product to work with my skin than against it. I've always like to use a tinted moisturizer and was amazed at this video demo. My jaw literally dropped. Keep up the great work Bareminerals and continue to revolutionize the beauty industry with your amazing products.

Pros: long lasting, natural finish
I have been using this when it first debut and I love it! I have oily skin and suffer from redness, large pores and acne scars. This is a light to medium coverage foundation so I get a nice coverage when I apply 2 layers with my fingers. If I need any additional coverage I will use my bareminerals cream pot concealer. My pores and other flaws look minimized and it leaves such a nice natural skin finish. I got rid of all my other foundations and will be keeping this one. It is amazing!!

It is so important to get color matched and use the less is more application as this formula has amazing full coverage. I love it because it is so quick and easy to apply.
I had used shade Medium Beige in the original and matte and now use Medium Tan in the Ready foundation. And if I get a little color in the summer I will switch to the Ready in Golden Tan. I have oily/acne prone skin and this is my favorite foundation! It has brought me back to Bareminerals.

I have always thought I needed to get full coverage and I had been using the precision brush with the Ready foundation and at times it would look cakey. Even with following Leslie's tips on application I sometimes would look like I was wearing foundation. Recently I decided to try it with the Flawless face brush and now I love it every time! I realized full coverage is too much for me and I just needed to change my brush for the natural finish I was looking for.

How does this compare to bareMinerals bareMinerals READY™ Eyeshadow 4.0 in truth
How does this compare to bareMinerals bareMinerals READY™ Eyeshadow 4.0 in truth
I own both palettes. They are both similar. I would say the Truth leans more taupe brown and the Power Neutrals leans more gray taupe with additional brown and olive shades too. I love both palettes but if you can only choose one I would go with the Power Neutral since you get more.

How much concealer is included in the package?
Is it the same size as the other one you buy online, 2 grams?
Yes it is full size. Only the well rested highlighter and concealer brush are smaller sizes.

Is this product also a sunblock? If not, how do I got about putting on sunscreen in addition to this product, i.e. before or after?
I want sun protection in addition to the faux tan
It doesn't not contain sunblock. So once the faux tanner is dry I would apply sunblock over it.

If using in the morning, do I use after mosturizer?
When using Faux Tan Face can I use all my other applications first like toner and moisturizer then apply Faux Tan?
Yes you can use it over your moisturizer or save a step and mix it in with your face moisturizer. I have oily skin and I just use this as my face moisturizer and then apply my primer and foundation on top.

Does this serve as a moisturizer too? Also, does it have that odor typical of sunless tanners?
I use a product that is a facial moisturizer and sunless tanner. I like the convenience of the 2-in-1, but after a few hours, I can smell that odor that is typical of sunless tanners. Perhaps that is unavoidable, but would love to find a product that doesn't have that smell.
I have oily skin and I just use this as my moisturizer. I have a sensitive nose and I don't smell the typical self tanner scent.

If I am currently using the purifying facial cleanser and bought the exfoliating treatment cleanser, how often should I use the exfoliating cleanser?
I wash my face twice a day and would like to start exfoliating. I am not sure how often I should exfoliate my face or if I need both cleansers twice a day.
the exfoliating cleanser is very gentle. You can use it everyday in the AM and use Purifying at night when you remove your makeup. Also you can mix them together and use them that way if you want to. I also love to use the exfoliating cleanser as a mask once a week.

Will this cleanser break my skin out with blemishes (acne)?.. and will my skin be oily later in the day?
My skin is acne prone, I am nervous to try anything because of this.
I have very acne prone skin and I haven't had any trouble with any of the BE cleansers.
