Better than loose mineral veil

After reading reviews, I purchased both the light and the medium - I wear the medium beige matte in the loose foundation and the Medium tan in the Ready Made foundation. I like both the light and the medium in this touch up veil, I think the light works best for me but I can get away with the medium as well. I don't use the pouf that came with it, I use a retraceable brush and lightly touch the compact. This is so much easier and less messy than the loose veil. I have not tried this with the loose foundation, only with the ready made foundation. I don't wear the loose foundation much anymore since I switched to the ready made foundation.

I first received the face cream and the facial cleanser as samples in a previous order. I fell in love with the cleanser. I was nervous about the face cream since my face has become super sensitive over the past few years and will break out with a drop of a hat. Since I was in need of eye cream and thought, this is worth a try with the saving of the trio. I must say I love all three! The cleanser really washes off all of your makeup and your eye make up too without irritating your eyes. The eye cream does not bother my eyes. I wish they would do this trio with the SPF version, as I'd love to try that for days I'm not wearing foundation. This is my first Bare Minerals skin care I have ever purchased. With my sensitive skin, I have been using this for a week and I have not had any breakouts! If you read the reviews of just the face cream, some reviewers mentioned their face was "shiny" after putting it on. I have not had that problem. One small negative: I wish the face cream was a little bit larger, perhaps 3 fl in a tube. Please keep this trio around - it's a great savings and it's naturally perfect!

Maverick, Spark Plug and Smooth Talker are my favorites in this pack. All of the colors are nice really but the first three i wear the most. Hopefully I can find them in the larger size. This would make a great gift to introduce someone to this line of lipgloss.

I have thin lashes and most mascara will eventually clump on me. My favorite by far is the expresso flawless definition, it would be nice if the waterproof came in expresso. Anyway, this does go on fine for me. I do have to dab the brush on a small piece of TP or tissue to get some of the excess off - I do this for just about any mascara I have ever used. This does not flake yet it's not as waterproof as I'd like. I have had my tube for about 2-3 weeks now and it is not clumping or oozing out like it did on another reviewer. Perhaps a bad batch was made? All in all I am pleased with the purchase.

After watching the video I was a bit scared to try this since my skin tone is completely different. I have a medium skin tone with brunette hair and blue eyes. I must say WOW! Love love love!!! made my blue eyes pop with color. The colors blend so well and you can layer them for a hint of color or go more dramatic for an evening. I'm debating on ordering another kit before it disappears. The lipgloss at first I was worried it would look like it does in the tube. Not for me, my lips have a lot of pink in them and the gloss looked really natural on. you won't regret this kit. I will add one more note - I wish there was an option to choose the expresso mascara.

I started using Bare Minerals about a year ago and I started with the matte in shade medium beige. When the Ready Foundation came out, I was curious. Back in February of this year, I went to a boutique and was color matched to the shade medium tan in the Ready. I was surprised I was matched for the medium tan, it looks so dark in the compact but it's not dark on. I really LOVE this foundation, it's perfect and the best on the market I think. So easy to use and yes, if you are not careful it's easy to use too much, it does take practice. The plus side to this foundation is you can build your coverage. I use the precision brush and love how it applies the foundation. I have super sensitive skin and this does not bother my face. I think I like the ready foundation better than the matte. My foundation woes are gone! Thank you!

I really like the lip gloss - it looks more peachy online than when you have it in your hands. The gloss is smooth and a nice sheer natural color, neutral. The lip liner is nice. The lipstick, I did not care too much for. It was not creamy, it was "stiff" and hard to use. The color was too tawny for me. Perhaps it would look nice on more of a dark olive or darker skin tone. I'm a medium toned skin with a neutral tone. The lip stick looked "flat" on me if that makes any sense. Love the gloss, that is a keeper and for the price of these three, i can't complain.

This color came with a kit I had ordered and i really like it. It's not too shiny and it is a nice neutral color that you can pair just about any color with it - pink, browns, blues, greens. I would not wear it as a solo color but it's a nice highlight color. Very creamy. Once this is gone, I'll be ordering this.

Phrases Chosen: nice collection
This is the first kit collection i have purchased. It's a tad bit too shimmer for me (the light green color) but after some practice you can layer as much or as little. It's a great everyday look. The brown is wonderful., it adds great definition to your eyes to help make them 'pop'. The cheek color - i was a bit afraid of how bright is looked. It's a good summer color, I'm not sure how it will look when I have lost my tan. The eye liner is great and the lip gloss is fabulous. it appears brighter in the tube than on your lips, it is very sheer. I"m not a bright color person, I like a soft natural look.

I like this brush just as much if not a tad more than the regular flawless brush. Perfect for travel - I recently took this and the retractable kabuki brush on a trip to CA and it was perfect. This brush is easy to use. Love it.

does the light shade have orange tone or yellow tone to it?
I cant handle tones of any orange or yellow and just wondered if the light has any of that in or is more toward a cool base im hoping so hard for me to really know from the picture I wear fairly med in loose and med in the new foundation ready I just trying to know if should get reg or try the new light-thanks
I don't notice any yellow or orange tones with the light. the medium has more of a tint to it so that might. I purchased both the light and the medium to try out.
