                      The original foundation covers better than the matte. I liked purchasing this starter kit to be able to try both kinds and see which works best for my skin type and tone.

                          I feel that the ULTA representative was in a hurry and just wanted to sell me something. I was looking for an intro kit, never having tried Bare Minerals before, and was sold this kit in "Fairly Light". It turns out that the foundation was too dark on me and looked orange. I went to another ULTA store and the representative told be I should wear "Fair", and should never have been given "Fairly Light". However, "Fair" is not available in this kit. I would have been better off with individual items because I don't care for the "Warmth" product that came with the kit either and don't use it. The ULTA representative mislead me on this one...

                          Careful when you open the mineral veil and warmth they can come out too fast. I put tape over 3 out of 4 and that seems to have worked for me.

                            I use medium dark, but that color isn't available in a kit. Which available color in the kit would be the closest to medium dark? Thanks!

                              The most similar available shade is Golden Dark, which is slightly darker and more warm-toned. We recommend testing this shade at your nearest ULTA store:

                              Either is a wonderful option for a bareMinerals newbie! If you are wanting to try both Original and Matte formulas of bareMinerals Foundation, we suggest going with the Get Started Complexion Kit, which includes both.

                              Original and Matte Foundations provide up to 8 hours of wear. Using the Mini Prime Time Foundation Primer underneath your foundation, plus setting foundation with Mineral Veil finishing powder will definitely help to extend makeup's wear. All products within this kit are formulated for all skin types including oily skin. bareMinerals formulates all of their products to minimize any irritation or discomfort, but if you have a known allergy or diagnosed skin condition (such as rosacea), we do recommend consulting your physician.

                              If you're a makeup novice, bareMinerals Get Started Complexion Kit is a great place to start!

                              bareMinerals products are formulated for all skin types, and bareMinerals ensures their foundations and complexion products have no potential for comedogenicity (won't clog pores).

                              We think you'll especially love the Matte Foundation within this kit! It features up to 8 hours of wear with a matte finish, perfect for those with oily skin.

                              Additionally, Mineral Veil helps to absorb excess shine as well as to minimize the appearance of enlarged pores, fine lines and wrinkles, and other imperfections. It provides a soft focus, flawless finish when applied over your foundation and can be reapplied as needed throughout the day for touchups.

                              All of these products are super simple to use! Detailed instructions are included with this kit, as well as listed below:

                              Four Steps To Flawless:

                              Prime Time Foundation Primer: Apply one pump of Prime Time Foundation Primer, massaging an even layer all over your face for a luminous, skin-smoothing finish. Allow it to dry, then apply bareMinerals Foundation.
                              bareMinerals Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15: Apply with the Flawless Application Face Brush using the SWIRL, TAP, BUFF Application. Start application on the outside of your face near your cheekbones and work your way to the cheeks, forehead and nose. Buff until you're satisfied with the coverage.
                              Warmth All-Over Face Color: Apply using the Flawless Application Face Brush. Sweep just a touch of color on the forehead, cheekbones and chin, where sunlight naturally touches, in the shape of the letter "E" and the number "3". Warmth All-Over Face Color creates a nice contour to the face.
                              Mineral Veil Finishing Powder: Buff on using the Flawless Application Face Brush for a smooth, translucent, soft-focus finish all day.

                              Warm Tan is not an available shade for this kit. Your closest match may be Golden Tan, which is slightly more yellow-toned. We recommend testing this shade at your nearest ULTA store to ensure it is a good match for your skin tone:
