Pros: gold, summery
I've been eyeing this kit for a while now and recently got it as a gift when it went on sale. I'm in love with the primer in Gold Nugget. It's such a pretty deep gold color that is just gorgeous alone. Heatwave eye color is also really pretty. It's a nice smokey brown that applies light at first but buildable and gets deeper in color. Really pretty! Canyon Blush and Citrine Radiance are also really pretty. Canyon Blush is a nice deep red but is sheer and buildable. I like the radiance since it gives such a nice gorgeous golden glow. I love the eyeliner even though it needs to be sharpened. I perfer it over the Big and Bright Eyeliners because these are way creamer and easily smudge but won't budge. The Curl and Lengthen Mascara is my favorite! It really lengthens and makes my lashes looks so full and enhances my already curled lashes. Haven't tried the lipgloss but it's a nicee color and I've always liked nude colored lip colors so I have plenty.

Pros: smooth, shimmery
I am so glad I decided to get this quad. The colors are so beautiful. The lightest color, Icebreaker, is really bright. Works well as a highlight but does have fairly large chunks of glitter. Fashionably Late is a gorgeous pink! I've never owned a pink eye shadow that doesn't make my eye look irritated. In the pot this is a really bright pink but on it's a lot sheerer. On it's more of this silvery pink but still obviously pink. The purple, Swanky, is really pretty and smokey. Slightly shimmery and works really well with Fashionably Late. Black Tie Optional is a nice matte black. No shimmer and works well as a liner.

Pros: wearable, easy, sultry, smoky
This is an awesome 10-piece collection of face, eye, and lip colors. I love Cognac Diamond! It goes on a little lighter than what it looks like in the pot and way more sultry as well. It's this beautiful smoky brown shimmering color. Flawless Diamond is very in color and brightens up Cognac Diamond. Smoky Diamond is another gorgeous color and super easy to smoke out. It's kind of looks like a shimmering piece of chocolate ;-). I like Rose Diamond blush and it doubles as a flirty pink eyecolor that works very well with the browns in this collection. Champagne Diamond Radiance is super uber gorgeous. Plenty of sexy shimmer and it doesn't look tacky. It has enough color to be worn as a blush/all-over face or as a highlight over Rose Diamond and looks good even when the 2 are mixed. Brilliance gloss is also a great color to go with this collection. It's a soft muave color but is still on the light side. It's moisturizing and smells of vanilla and isn't sticky at all. The Eyeliner brush is goof proof. It's bristtles are super tiny so it picks up just enough (just make sure to tap if you do put on too much) to pat onto lashes. I love love love the crease brush. I have the original one and it's bristtles are a little wider. This one applies all these colors lightly to help with building color. The Cheek brush is also another awesome addition. It's got big bristtles but not super packed together so it doesn't apply colors heavily. Lastly, Original Mineral Veil, my all time fave! Completely translucent, absorbs excess oil, and holds everything in place. Anytime I use the original Mineral Veil, I never have to reapply anything and I'm always looking fresh faced like if I just did my make up.

Pros: awesome, shimmering
I am in love with this particular duo. Breathtaking is a gorgeous white and acts as a perfect highlight more than a color. Spectacular is exactly what it says, spectacular! It's this beautiful shimmering greenish gold. When Breathtaking is layered lightly over Spectacular it goes from shimmering to metallic-like. It's sooo cool and I can't get enough of it.

Love this 6-piece set. They're not as big as the originals but they are still awesome. With all the colors you get it's a great value plus a brush! Absolutely love this brush, it always smudges the liner perfectly for a sexy smoky eye and never leaving a harsh line.

Pros: pretty, fun
These 2 colors are soooo pretty on. The look like they wouldn't go together in the compact but once on it looks so beautiful. Nirvana is now a favorite its a kind of tangerine color or pink and gold mixed, which I mistakened for pink. Utopia is this gorgeous deep green color and it goes on exactly like it looks like in the compact. I really love these 2.0s because bareMinerals gives you a fun smoky eye look and a nice daylook in one little compact. Couldn't be happier!

Pros: brightening, fun
I really do like this collection. The lipgloss is a cute, flirty pink. I like Flare, but it just seems like a mix of Sand Dune and Pale Gold mixed together (which I have both of). Still a pretty color tho; it's like a mix of yellow, brown, and gold. I love love love the eye pencil. Ultramarine is such a beautiful blue. When I put it on, it made my eyes look bigger and more open. The reason for the 4 stars is because Ultramarine, when lined on top of Flare turns a kind of grayish/blue color that doesn't really brighten. I don't know if I just didn't put enough but it was not blue. Alone tho, it is a gorgeous blue.

Pros: shiny
The colors in this kit are very pretty and I love the foiling technique. It really makes the shadows stand out and is great for a party or a night look. They can also be applied dry for a nice shimmer without being too crazy. I'm not so crazy about the brush but it really is good for foiling since it's thin and won't loose its shape after wetting it. The only big thing I'm not so crazy about is the consistency I got with my eye shadows. Both colors come out very clumpy and don't go on even when dry or wet. It's as tho they was moisture in the jars before I even opened them. I have a bunch of other eye colors and this is the 1st time I've recieved something of that consistency.

Pros: fun, spring
This collection is so adorable. It makes you look super cute and flirty. Mango Smoothie is a yellowish color that I had some trouble making show up but it worked as a highlight and had some nice sheen to it. Paradise is my fave from this collection; it's a tangerine like color, not too pink not too orange but just right. It was a little hard to blend at first but the more I put on the better it blended. Cruisin Teddi is a bright blue when applied wet but applied dry is more toned down, even though it still is a nice sky blue color. At this point in time, I'm gonna put off wearing this collection until spring because these colors just aren't for the winter.

Pros: sexy, flirty
This is such a great collection of shades that go perfectly together. Sydney is a beautiful highlight color with enough pigment in it so you can see it. Its a creamy off white color and doesn't have a lot of shimmer. Treasure Island is a deep green color which I thought was gonna look funny on my skin but it turned out to be very nice. Its a little dark so it is easy to overdo (which I went and did by accident). Bondi Beach is such a gorgeous liner color. In the pot it's a very navy blue but once it's on it's more like a denim blue. I made a biiiggg mistake when putting this on thinking it wasn't gonna show up and put way more on than I meant to so I made a huge mess of my face and had blue everywhere. None the less it is such a pretty shade and makes me wish I really was hangin in Sydney. The bag is actually pretty deep. I could fit a ton of stuff in there. Only thing left now is to find the perfect shade of blush that'll go with this collection.

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.

Would you apply this concealer prior to applying foundation? Or would this just be used instead of applying foundation?
I am trying this product for the first time and I want to make sue I can get the best experience. I have been breaking out alot and want to hide my blemishes but don't want to cake on make-up.
What I normally do for this is I put on my foundation first but try to avoid the spot with the blemish then I'll put on the Blemish Therapy and right on top I'll use the concealer. Then I would apply a tiny bit more of foundation right on top of the concealer and blend just that spot.

looking for blush and lipcolor
I'm looking for a muted neutral coral blush and lip color. There is only one place near me that sells BE, but I'm not able to leave my home without help. Can you make any recommendations or suggestions? I have a pink lip and blush, but I was looking for something coral so that I have one more choice. Thank you
That's sad to hear maybe I can help answer your question, try: Beauty, Escape, Fruit Cocktail, Hint, Laughter, Morning, Sorbet, or Vintage Peach. For lipcolor you can try Amaretto, Berry Cordial, Bavarian Creme, Cherries on Top, Passion Fruit, or Rock Candy from the regular lipcolor or Confidence, Fearless, Courage, or Charisma from the Pretty Amazing Lipcolor collection. Hope this helps

Do I apply radiance (either Flawless Radiance or Bare Radiance) before or after mineral veil?
Hi,

I am a little confused about the order in which to use some of the products. I have foundation, which I apply first, however in terms of all over colors, blushes, radiances, and mineral veils, which order should I apply them in? I am never sure I'm doing this right. Thanks!
I always put mineral veil last to kind of blend all my makeup together (except eye shadow). If you use a primer before putting on foundation than just a little mineral veil is needed in your T zone (forehead, nose, a little on the cheeks). But if you want to show the color you're wearing, like blush you can put mineral veil underneath, but some blushes are a little overwhelming in their color. But I would recommend using mineral veil last.

Do you recommend anything for me?
My favorite Buxom Lip Polish color is SUGAR! Hands down. It is sheer and light.
Does anyone out there recommend another color that is similiar so I can change it up?
Thanks
I think Isabella or Amber, Isabella is a little darker than Sugar and Amber is a peachy shine if that makes sense

What is the best brush to use for applying the mineral veil.
I like the mineral veil, what is the best brush to use with this product?
i like to use the full flawless face brush for the mineral veil. if you apply primer before putting on foundation then a light layer of mineral veil is only needed to set your make up and diffuses any harsh colors (like a bright blush)

What is the difference?
What is the main difference between the Angled Face Brush and the Angled Blush Brush? Which one is more dense?
both are dense but the face brush is bigger than the blush brush. the face brush is used to hit target areas such as upper cheeks, nose, and forehead and put an all over face color without having to repeat so many times. the blush brush is for cheeks and designed to apply blush without putting it all over your face. i hope that makes sense and helps.

For those who already purchased and using this product..
Hi! I just wanna know how full the jar is.
I've purchased this from another website and when i got it, all the powder was only 1/4 of the jar (eyeshadow, blush, mineral veil). I was kinda disappointed, but I want to know if the powder really comes to only that amount.
I'd appreciate any answers.
all of the jars that i get from the bareminerals web site have been full
