      The sales girl suggested this instead of purchasing the regular size mineral powder. It wasn't until I got it home that I realized they were sample sized. Only enough for about a week or so. Returned it and bought full sized products.

      Comments about bareMinerals Get Started Complexion Kit:

      I am extremely light skinned, and went with the "fairly-light" version of this product. It is a perfect match! After using this product, I firmly believe there is no other reason to buy anything else for your complexion. It's a little bit pricey, sure, but I see this set lasting for a very long time. A little goes a long way. The powder glides on and covers like a foundation, but surprisingly enough, it doesn't look thick or cakey even in natural light. This is the only powder I have ever bought that really holds it's own in the natural light test - it actually looks like my skin. The darker warm tone in the set is great for facial contouring, and looks natural. I use it right under my cheek bones and it gives me great definition. The mineral veil is a great finisher for all over your face. It gives you a glow without looking sparkly, and diffuses natural light. I would recommend this product for summer because nobody wants thick, goopy foundation on their face during hot days, and you will still get full coverage that looks natural in the sun. This product is also great for winter because it has the ability to still look natural in cold, harsh light. My only concern is about the brush. It feels so lovely but it sheds, like right away. So... go ahead, spend the money and try it. You won't be sorry.

        I had seen this product on TV and in stores over the years but never tried it. My friend talked me into a trial. I love the results. Easy to apply and gives my face even tone. No more red blotches. At 50+ our skin has changed, our needs have changed and it is so nice to find something that is easy to apply, looks natural and lasts all day. Great for any age.

        The tube of liquid is not needed it adds to the wind and sun burning factor. I found I did not get burned or wind burned on the motorcycle if I left it off. We ride a lot and most people do not realize that most of the burns are from the wind when on a bike or in a convertible. wish it stayed on better had to reapply often at every other gas stop so every 150 miles or so. My husband let me put on his nose too so translucent one was awesome

          Comments about bareMinerals Get Started Complexion Kit:

          I usually stay away from foundation and make-up in general. I haven't had much luck with matching my skin tone and finding something that doesn't dry out my skin or leave me with irritation. I found that this product left my natural skin with a warm glow. My skin feels soft and doesn't appear powdery. I am not a usual review writer but am so enthusiastic about this kit that I had to put my story out there. Don't miss out, try this kit!

            I had been wanting to try bareMinerals for quite some time and finally had a friend, who had been using it, encouraged me to purchase this kit. I have noticed a change in how much better my makeup seems to last throughout the day and how my skin "glows" better in photos. Will continue with bareMinerals use. Each product is small...but it is a starter kit and I will be purchasing larger/regular sizes when these run out!

                    Hello,
                    I have extremely light skin. I would like to purchase this product, but I am confused as to which color choice is the lightest. "Fairly-light" looks lighter than "light" in the pictures, but I can't quite tell.

                      A:

                      Medium and Medium Beige are the same depth of color, just with different undertones. Medium is designed for cool undertones, so it is slightly more pink than Medium Beige, which is neutral.

                      Although the foundation within this kit provides buildable sheer-to-full coverage, for under eye circles, we suggest using a separate full coverage concealer such as bareMinerals Broad Spectrum SPF 20 Concealer for best results:
