        Comments about BareMinerals Up Close & Beautiful 30 Day Complexion Starter Kit:

        I'm glad I tried this kit! It was definitely worth it. I will repurchase full sized items of the original foundation and mineral setting powder. The flawless brush is still holding up and is great for applying the foundation. No complaints about the concealer brush. However, the primer is pretty bad. I found that it wouldn't dry at all, and would peel off in what looked like eraser shavings as I buffed my foundation. Not pleasant. I also have an issue with the concealer, which leaves a grayish color on my face.

        I've noticed that a) I don't necessarily need to use primer, but I do use one occasionally with this foundation, and b) the foundation is buildable and I can use it to cover blemishes instead of using the concealer. So no need for those products!

        A little of the foundation and mineral setting powder goes a long way, which is a great for the price.

                I am 51, so I do have a few wrinkles. This product hi-lighted the wrinkles under my eyes, which made my eyes look worse than without make-up. Yes I did use the primer before applying the powder foundation. My daughter told me my face looked good, but not up close because it looked like I had on a lot of make up (up close). I did not apply much at all.

                The powder was very messy. It could of been because it was the smaller size (30 day supply). But I just wanted to try it without making an "investment".

                I think I will stick with my Clinique.

                      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!

                      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!
