Love this kit!

Phrases Chosen: great value
I purchased this kit so that I could try out the new eyeliner and the new BB Cream. The eyeliner goes on nicely and lasts all day. I didn't care for the feel of the smudger, so I used a brush like I normally do. The BB Cream is AMAZING! I highly recommend watching the tips & tricks video on the BB Cream Eyeshadow page. I first applied the cream directly to my lids and didn't like how it felt after it dried. I watched the video and tried applying it to the back of my hand first, as shown in the video, and then to my lids. That worked out much better for me. I didn't feel it at all once it dried. It lasted all day long, as did the shadow I applied over it. The Ready 2.0 palette has very nice, soft colors. The darker shade is more matte that the lighter shade. I haven't tried the brush yet. I highly recommend this kit!

Phrases Chosen: convenient, has a weird smell, oil-absorbing
I purchased the Touch Up To-Go kit, which is a trial-size. I am glad I tried a smaller version first because this product is not for me. I love my loose Mineral Veil, and thought a pressed version would be great to have in my purse - no mess. Well, it has an odor in the compact and during application, and it makes me break out. I use the Feather Light brush for application. The product itself is oil-absorbing, makes my skin look flawless, and lasts pretty well.

Phrases Chosen: high-pigment, smooth, soft, a little goes a long way, sheer yet buildible
The Dream Sequence is an amazing pallet, especially for green eyes! A little goes a long way, as the colors are highly-pigmented, but they are sheer. There is a matte and a shimmer for each color group, which is hard to tell from the picture. I have been using BE for 9 yrs, and I am just so impressed with the pressed pallet that I will be buying more!

Mineral Veil is a must have. It absorbs oil and gives you that air-brushed look.

Phrases Chosen: very wearable, great value, full-sized products
This is a great kit! I was pleasantly surprised to see everything full-sized, so it is an outstanding value! The colors go on light and sheer, but you can easily build the color, and they will flatter all skin-tones. Grab it now before it is gone!

These eye sticks are very pretty in person! I have only tried Slingshot so far, and it was pretty easy to apply as a liner. It seems that the color sets pretty quickly once applied, so smudging and buffing should be done promptly.

I switched to BE 9 yrs ago, thus giving up all stick eyeliners in the process, and only using BE mineral liners. I wish I would have tried this BE liner when it launched - it is perfect! It goes on smoothly, and the Plum is flattering for my green eyes.

Phrases Chosen: good value, great for oily skin, great try-me kit
I love this kit because now I can try Matte, and I still have my favorite Original. I also love this kit because it does not come with Warmth (as a loyal BE user/kit-buyer for 9 years, more Warmth is the last thing I need); it comes with Bisque, which is a great multi-tasker. And I can always use more Mineral Veil. If you are thinking about trying BE, or just want to try out Matte without the full-size commitment, this is the kit for you!

Which brush and technique do I use for ready touch up veil?
Technique is so important with the new ready products and I think further education is needed. The foundation videos were very helpful.
I use the Feather Light brush to apply the Ready Touch Up Veil. It is a super-soft brush, and doesn't pick up a lot of product, so that you can apply as much as you'd like. You can use the Soft Focus Brush, too, as it looks like the Feather Light brush is not longer available.

I need to order mineral veil. I love the ready foundation but do you use it over or under your foundation?
Do you use ready mineral veil over or under your foundation? If I wear ready foundation do you need to use the ready mineral veil or the regular?
You can use mineral veil under and over your foundation. In the summer, I do both, otherwise, I just wear it over. You can use regular mineral veil with the ready foundation.

How should I know what colors would look best on me?
I have used plum and a lighter shade, which seem to make my eyes "pop". I have deep set eyes. Would other shades be better?

What color are your eyes? If plum is making them pop, I am guessing green or brown. I have read that plum and raisin are universally flattering.

Can Any one suggest me What shade would suite me? I have skin slightly fair. And also how to use it?
Your best bet is to go to a Boutique and get color-matched. If you are unable to do that, start with the Light Kit.

Is there a specific way to put on any mineral veil?
i've been checking the "get the look" sections and it always says to put on the mineral veil last. i've done this several times but for some reason i think it takes off or smudges whatever i have already on (eyeshadow, foundation, all over colors). what i want to know is if anyone else puts on the mineral veil after foundation and put on anything else just right on top.
I put Mineral Veil on last, but I don't use it on my eye area. But you can certainly use it before your foundation, blush, etc. One of the best things about BareMinerals is that there aren't any hard-and-fast rules.

i recently bought medium beige matte foundation. i want to buy finishing powder. which one should i buy
is there any face powder available that i can apply without putting foundation.
Mineral Veil can be worn alone or over your foundation. You can wear Original or Tinted. The tint is very light, so it works well on most everyone.
