Phrases Chosen: great quality, great value, super soft
I was debating on other brushes by BM, but after the total reached over $100, I took a look in the LAST CHANCE items and there they were looking like a great deal...and they were! I am impressed. Super soft, full length handles(except buki), no bristles have fallen out and application is flawless! My Problems are solved! LOL

bareMinerals saved my FACE!

Phrases Chosen: amazing!
I am 31 and I have battled acne for well over the past three years! Finally the last year and a half I went to the dermatologist to try to fight this battle professionally. Well, many bottles and my pocket book emptied by prescription lotions, creams, gels, pills...still no permanent/long lasting results in the end and the acne scars to prove it. My recent visit my doctor had ran out of ideas and now came to his last resort...A*****E! At this visit I reluctantly signed up for A*****E. It's a process for women luckily, we are not able to get on the med right away. You have to be tested twice for pregnancy and sign this A*****E manual/contract. Talk about a scary read, but at this point I am desperate!
After reading the scary manual and all the side effects I decided to take this time to finally try what my doctor had mentioned several times to me. He said I may be allergic to my makeup, so to give bareMinerals a try. He mentioned this every other visit and I am so glad he did!
I took the leap and went in all the way, I only wish I had tried this so much sooner...I bought everything! Skin Care, Treatments, and all the makeup. It's the best money I ever spent! I started with the Youth Revealed 3-piece collection in the AM(even use the Active Cell Renewal Night Serum in the AM) and then PM cleansing with the Purifying Facial Cleanser(included in Youth Revealed), Skip your Active Cell Renewal Night Serum PM during Detox but apply the day assigned of the 7-Day Skin Detox instead USING THE WHOLE VILE(suggested by my bareMinerals beauty consultant), after that dried completely I applied the Purely Nourishing Moisturizer(included in Youth Revealed). I could feel the difference immediately in the texture of my skin, by day 7 I am a full on bareMinerals believer and customer/FAB Friend for LIFE!! After my 7-Day Detox I have added in my regimen in AM and PM the Biolucent and Multi-Wrinkle Repair(one pump each and mixing it together) after the Active cell renewal. In addition in the PM after cleansing I use the Intensive Glow Pads, followed by the rest of my routine. I know it may seem like overkill, but my face has never been this clear and my acne scars are disappearing everyday. My face is so clear I will be doing the 7-Day Skin Detox monthly or every other month which ever I can afford at the time. It's so worth it!
I started my bareMinerals journey Friday, June 20th, 2014 and it hasn't even been a full two weeks! This is only the beginning of my bareMinerals journey, so I can't wait to see what is to come! Thanks to bareMineral's and the great beauty consultants in my local bareMinerals boutique I will not be going on A*****E after all and a big bonus is I love my skin!

What size is the purse?
What is the size of the black purse (that stores the brushes)?
I would say its a mini roll up bag medium is size, with two mesh zipper compartments. One compartment I can put all my brushes including several others(all my brushes basically) that are not included in this collection and the other I put my loose powders. I can set this in my travel bag to where the loose powders stay upright and no loose eye colors were spilt out at all. Great value and quality!

Are the bristles stiffer?
Although the natural bristles absorb oil, they seem to be stiffer and I have to apply more pressure which leads to a cake-like look. :-( Are these bristles softer and airier than ones you previously had in your product line?
All brushes are super soft and I would say airier too!

Multi-Tasking Kabuki Brush - Synthetic hair
Flawless Buffing Brush - Synthetic hair
Dual-sided Concealer Brush - One side synthetic & one side natural

Do you use the whole bottle
Do you use the whole bottle?
USE THE WHOLE BOTTLE! I read reviews and Q&A's and I was tempted to save half the bottle, but I am so glad I didn't. I got the results that this amazing product promises!!

How long after the detox before I can safely tan again?
I tan at the salon once or twice a week, and want to make sure I wait the appropriate amount of time before resuming tanning after using the detox. Thank you!
I would try not to tan your face at all, at any point in time, but if you insist I would wait one full week after treatment. Try Faux Tan Face Gradual Glow Sunless Tanner, its a great product and you are saving your face from expedited wrinkles and age spots!
