I picked this palette up via QVC awhile ago, and it fast became a huge favorite of mine--and my sister! Now that it's available here, I'm going to make her buy her own.
The thing I like best about this is that this palette doesn't just coordinate with itself--literally everything in it can ALSO be used with colors from other palettes to create some unexpectedly cool effects. I like all my Ready shadows much more since I added this palette to my available options. I think you will too.

The retractable kabuki is the BEST!!!

Phrases Chosen: must have
Anytime you see a BE retractable kabuki, ORDER IT! This one is even prettier than the pink one that BE had available online last summer.
I LOVE THEM BOTH!
Retractable brushes help your brushes keep their shape--and the kabuki size Brush Guard goes over the casing just fine to dry them upside down when you wash them once a week, If you love the original loose Bare Minerals?
You need this collection--NOW!

I LOVE retractable brushes, and I LOVE kabuki brushes. A BE retractable kabuki brush is the best of all possible worlds.
My pink-cased BE kabuki brush still makes me smile when open my makeup bag every morning--but this?
Even prettier!
I LOVE this brush. I just wish that BE would make their retractable kabuki's part of their regular standard product line--I'd like to give everyone I know one of these for Christmas!

Brush cleanser included makes this the best kit
Rating
5 out of 5
5 out of 5
Product wise, this Get Started kit has all the essentials to actually get started.
However, in my considered opinion this particular version of the "getting started" is far and away the best choice, not just because of the products and brush set it includes ( BOTH a full flawless face, and a flawless face brush, and the max coverage) but because it includes a full size brush cleanser. There's nothing more important in putting on makeup on your face than putting it on with CLEAN BRUSHES, and I think that by including it, BE is promoting their message of healthy skin in a very active way.
The only caveat to my unqualified love of this kit is that I intensely dislike the 'opens to the bottom' tube packaging that the shampoo comes in. It wastes an unbelievable amount of product, because there's no way to control the flow it of.
If you purchase this kit, I suggest you go out and get a different bottle to put the brush cleanser in; if you try to use this 'tube style' thing, you'll waste at least half of it--if not more.

Phrases Chosen: super emollient, wears well
This? Is a great, great color. Everyone who see it on me wants the shade.
But the fact that it's as emollient as a lip balm is what REALLY makes people try to sneak it out of your make up bag--I've caught Mom twice now. I guess I'm going to have to order her one of her own :)

This particular kit is an amazing GREAT bargain on a medium size of the SPF 25 mineral veil all by itself. The inclusion of a great lip gloss and the smallest Pure Radiance makes it almost a crime not to at least TRY it.

Never too many brushes :)
Rating

Phrases Chosen: excellent mini brush, not so good pen dispenser
I also bought this as part of an online preview special--that mini concealer was completely irresistible at $15, so I actually bought 2--the rest of the kit is a bonus. I use the original Well Rested every day, and the jar in my 'never unpack it' bag is getting a little low; the smaller jar may fit in there a little better than the one I'm using right now.
I'm not the world's biggest fan of this new 'pen' version of the Well Rested, though. It's a good thing I purchased these specifically for the mini concealer brushes, because I'd have been mad if my reason were these WR pens.
The problem is that the 'brush' element provides really....spotty....control of the product. When I first tried to use it, I probably clicked it 5 times at least TWENTY-five times before I got the first droplet of product to infuse the brush. The next day, 3 clicks produced 2 droplets; then next after than, 1 click produced a huge glob. I've been playing with this for 2 weeks now, and I don't think I've ever gotten the same amount of product 2 days in a row.
And both wands have the exact same problem. I thought it might just be that the first one was defective, so I opened the second kit and tried the other one, and either they're both broken, or this just design just doesn't work for diddly-doo.
The Stroke of Light "wand" provides much better product control in terms of amount and placement; I wish this used a wand delivery system instead of this messy, unpredictable pen. I suspect that if I could ever get a consistent amount of it on my face, I might like it; as it is, I haven't worn it out of the house yet.
Because I bought this for the mini concealer brush, the WR pen was just a bonus item that doesn't work, and so I'm not taking off any stars. But if you're considering buying this to TRY this new version of Well Rested, you might want to give it a pass.

Beyond Amazing--this stuff is ASTOUNDING

Phrases Chosen: incomparable
Lipstick in general is far from my favorite make up product--I'm a talker, and a smiler (and a frowner) and traditional lipsticks just wear off really, really fast for me. Even colors that I love, I just don't use a lot, because they don't last. I have very much tended to 'tinted lip glosses' that I felt really comfortable reapplying without a mirror.
Not anymore.
I got the first one of these as part of a kit, and I tried it out one night when I went to a play with some friends, thinking it was just a lip gloss. Imagine my surprise when I walked into the ladies room at intermission, prepared to reapply it--it had been almost 2 hours since I'd put it on, I expected it would be completely worn away--and it looked barely smudged!!! Not even so smudged that it needed a retouch!!!!
I actually didn't need to reapply it until after we ate a late supper, following the show. Right before I left the restaurant, I checked again. It was 3 hours, plus a meal, before I felt like I needed to reapply it.
So...I ordered a bunch more and IT WASN'T A FLUKE.
This is far and away the best lip color out there. I have some lipsticks that cost close to 4 times what this does, and none of them work even one tenth as well. Even the other Bare Minerals lipsticks--which are better than most--are this good.
It needs to be renamed--amazing just doesn't do it justice, in my book.

Phrases Chosen: great value, hate the pattern
....the dreadful pattern on the acrylic box.
It just gets worse every day it sits on my counter, that pattern. I know, JA is a design genius and all.....but that pattern clashes with literally everything in my bathroom. You can't tell how jarring it really is in the boutique where there are several of them displayed, or online, where the colors aren't necessarily perfectly displayed by your monitor--but the colors and that pattern are just appalling.
I HATE the pattern. Really, really despise it. I literally lay a handtowel OVER the box, because that pattern makes my eyes cross!
And that's really, really sad: because the acrylic box itself is really worth 7 stars, all by itself.
The box is a great size, divided in the right 'unequal proportions to lay mascaras, liners etc, on one side of it, while your lipsticks fit exactly in the square part--you can even store them standing up, with labels readable, and the lid fits perfectly. I've got more than a dozen lipsticks in mine that way, right now. Plus the lid slides on and off easily, but it's not loose; and because you do have to pull a bit to get the lid off, if it tips over, everything in the box STAYS in the box, because the lid doesn't fall off. Which means my lipsticks don't get dumped all over the counter (always a plus).
I love the structure of the box ITSELF. I want more of the box--but NOT with this dreadful pattern. This box would be gorgeous in solid, saturated primary colors, and I would buy more kits that came in a box of this structure if the box came in primary colors--or even just black or white!
But I'm going to have to figure out how to paint over that pattern with red lacquer or something. That pattern was a terrible thing to do to a really great acrylic box, and I don't think it does the brush handle or the lid of the foundation many favors, either.
Big thumbs up for the supersized foundation, the brush and the structural elements of the box, though.

Believe it when it says "shimmer"
Rating

Phrases Chosen: one bad thing
Love the make up remover size--super easy travel size for my travel bag! 5 stars
Really Love the Pizzazz lip color--it's still quite sheer, but more saturated than other lip slicks I've gotten. 6 stars!!
Like that metallic black eyeliner a lot--it won't be something I wear often, but I can see a number of good applications for it, mostly around Halloween. 4.5 stars
But really believe the description on the eye primer when it says pink SHIMMER. I had a HUGE amount of fallout with the 'shimmer' particulates all down my face--to the point that I had to use the make up remover and start my whole face over after they attached themselves to my Prime Time face primer. Really not helpful when I'm trying to get ready to go to a Christmas party in under 10 minutes. I'll use the Pink Sugar eye primer--but ONLY by itself with eyeliner/mascara, when I'm planning to be someplace with very low lights, when I need all the pick up I can manage. And I'll be putting tissue over the rest of my face while it dries when I do use it! Very disappointing, because the color was beautiful, until the shimmer started falling all over my face. 1 star
Average: 4.1 stars
That said, the pink shimmer primer is frustrating enough that I won't be buying this kit again. :(

How much lipstick is in this?
Total grams of product would be fine, but if you have a 'grams per pot', that would be really helpful. I'm considering buying this, but would be repotting other shades into it when each one is empty, if the pots are the right size.

Thanks!
