      Poor coverage, messy, made me look older than my mother, creased sunk into pores. I used with primer and without- hated it both ways. Made my otherwise normal looking eyes look old. My 6 year old asked me why I was wearing so much makeup lol

        The foundation is fine, it's feels light and gives good coverage, however the foundation brush is not-that-good at all, it feels a little rough or maybe I have too sensitive skin, the concealer is a w e s o m e, I had the thought concealer had to be cream but this one is really good, nice coverage of my dark circles and feels light, the veil is also awesome! for the finishing touches and it gives a flawless look, I am not sure if it's going to last a whole month though.

          I love bare minerals. I have used them on and off for years. I was excited to see this set as a way to get back into bareminerals. The color selection is not great in this set at least here at Ulta. The foundation brush sheds way too much. I have gone to a different store since and purchased my actual color which wasn't available at Ulta. I have also purchased the beautiful finish brush and it's amazing. Again from a different store. I would say check there first for bare minerals.

                      Hello Baby Skin,

                      Medium Beige may be your best match in the BareMinerals Up Close & Beautiful 30 Day Complexion Starter Kit, but please note that your current foundation is intended for Medium Skin with warm/golden undertones. The shades offered in this specific kit are not exactly the best for your skin.

                      Hi,
                      To get the best Foundation starter kit I would recommend you stop by an Ulta location nearest you to get shade matched for the appropriate foundation shade. One of the best deals is the Get Started Complexion kit for $49 which includes Original and Matte foundation, mineral veil, warmth all over face color, Prime Time primer, Flawless application brush and a makeup bag. This will give you two great options to try in foundation.

                      A:

                      Hi, Penny!

                      Golden Fair is a shade lighter than "Light," and falls into the Porcelain-Golden category. I would give that shade a try!

                      Right now, all of our Original and Matte foundations are $28.50 (subject to change). They both absolutely can be used on Mature Skin. In fact, many of our long-time clients rave about how each of these formulations make their skin look and feel more youthful in appearance. Try Original Primetime Primer underneath for added silkiness and longevity to the product!

                      I hope this helps.

                      Hi, April!

                      Finding the right shade of foundation can be tricky, it's true. Based on your description of yourself, I would recommend Golden Medium in Original. It is great for anyone with a medium range and golden olive undertone. If you tend to be more cool (rosey), try Medium instead. You can always have an expert in one of our locations try both on you and see which one works best on your skin. You may even find another color you like better.

                      Hope this helps!

                      Hi, there!

                      Our primers range from 1 oz to 2.3 fl. oz depending on which one you select.

                      And if you find that the Bisques work better for you than any shade in Original or Matte, of course you can wear that as your foundation! I would recommend seeing one of our experts and getting rematched in your formula of choice before deciding on only wearing the Bisques.

                      Hi, Lora!

                      Always see one of our experts for a shade match. It can be most difficult trying to shade match yourself online. Request to be matched in 2-3 shades in order to find the right one which falls in line with one of our kits.

                      If you are unable to go in store, we provide descriptions of our color assortment on the website to make it easier for you to determine both your range and undertone. I hope this helps!
