I can't say how happy I am to get this deluxe collector's edition in my shade, Fairly Medium! It is my perfect, most of the year shade here in upstate New York, and finding it ended a 20+ year search for the right foundation shade. And I love this year's holiday packaging in this lovely champagne gold. (I may have to buy at least one more.) Bare Minerals, this just MIGHT make me forgive you for not having a holiday TSV this year on QVC... I said, MIGHT! Pretty baffled on that one. I hope the creative teams are working on something REALLY good for 2017.

This is a great kit from Bare Minerals and illustrates what the brand stands for: a soft, pretty look with some innovative additions like this eye liner. The define end of the Smoke and Define liner is my FAVORITE. Don't be scared of how these eyeshadow shades look in the compact. Try this look. It's gorgeous, warm and soft.

This is a FANTASTIC collection. I am Fairly Medium in Original foundation or Bare Shell in BareSkin. All of these colors are gorgeous. I don't particularly like the Moxie gloss included in the Golden Light set, but I have plenty of other Moxies that fit the bill. Please bring more of these, Bare Minerals.

I have been finding that I don't really need some super thick undereye concealer. I have some dark undereye circles, but this product does a great job for me by diffusing the darkness and brightening my undereye region. It's also the perfect highlighter for above my brow line and along my upper cheekbones. This product is light, creamy and easy to blend. It truly seems to "lift" my face.

I love to use self tanner in this part of the winter when I need a pick me up and natural tan is months away in Upstate New York. My Original foundation shade is Fairly Medium, or I wear Bare Shell in Bareskin foundation so I am pretty fair. I apply this product after showering, exfoliating and moisturizing at night before bed. It doesn't stain my white sheets, pillowcases or pajamas. I allow the color to develope overnight and shower again in the morning to wash it off. What remains is a nice warm, golden color. I think it makes me look thinner and younger, and it just makes me feel good. I have used this product on my face, too, although I like to use the formula Bare Minerals has developed for the face for a couple of days first because I'm so fair.

My natural skin tone is Fairly Medium, although in the dead of winter I think I'm leaning closer to Fair. That being said, I have cool undertones and always burn before tanning. This product gives me a golden, natural looking tan color without looking fake or orange. I love that there is a version for the face separate from the product for the body that provides good color from your forehead, to your neck, to your chest, to your body. So many presenters, even during a self tanner presentation, seem to have ended their self tanner at their jawline and then tried (unsuccessfully# to match their makeup to the self tanner on their neck. They have these weird white looking faces and tan bodies on HD TV. This product gives you all the beauty effects of a tan #looking slimmer and younger/evening skin tone# without the harmful tanning bed rays. I exfoliate and moisturize drier areas #around my nose) prior to application and apply after my shower before bed in order to let the color develope overnight. I have not had any problems with this product staining my pillowcases or sheets. In the morning I wash my face, moisturize and put on my moisturizer and makeup. I learned last year that my Original foundation shade will change from cool Fairly Medium to a warm color like Light or Golden Medium.

I purchased this a few weeks ago in a Bare Minerals boutique. When I saw the colors I just couldn't leave it there! I love the Ready shadows for their beautiful blending and it decreases the amount of little pots of loose powder scattered around. It's a beautiful collection of pretty, polished looks and the way it foldsout and holds together is priceless. I wrote immediately on Facebook that fellow lovers of Bare Minerals should RUN to the nearest Bare Minerals vendor or computer to pick up this collection before it's gone since it's a limited edition. Thank you also for the two sample looks in the foldout. Please create more like this one!

I received this product in a Bare minerals kit this spring and have been hoping more colors would be created and it would be added to the line. I love this. Wear it alone, or wear it under your other eye makeup... it doesn't matter because it will look FABulous either way. I love my BM eye shadows, but when I'm busy or running late I throw this on to even out my eyelid color without doing an entire shadow look. It helps create my polished look and stays put! I am in love with my Blushing Apricot and my sample of Candlelit Peach. I can't wait for this Soft Shell to come, and my next purchase will be Soft Linen.
I had to try this because I watched so many of the QVC presentations. I love it. I just follow the directions (shake, blend, "it's not a kiddie pool" LOL) and use a total of four drops for my whole face. Fellow BM/QVC junkies at work say it's so perfect that I look airbrushed. I like my Original foundation a LOT, but I've been dry and feeling like it was settling in the lines around/under my eyes lately. I am Medium Beige powder (after Faux Tanning), so I went for Bare Natural. It's a perfect shade match. And I LOVE THE BRUSH! This foundation lasts through a 12-plus hour nursing shift in an ER (including CPR). I am considering buying Bare Linen for times when I haven't had time to Faux Tan since I'm normally Fairly Light.

I have tried this eyeliner and am very disappointed. I don't feel it glides on anywhere near as nicely as Round the Clock eyeliner and cannot express enough my sadness that Round the Clock is being discontinued. 10 pm eyeliner (very difficult to find, but I've been resourceful) has been my staple for two years.
