Rated 5 out of 5 by Sophiec1 well worth it
This set is so cheap considering what you get. I bought it not knowing there was the extras of the brushes etc but since it includes them it is an amazing buy. The products are so high quality and I would definitely recommend this set.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer amazing value - can't get enough of the well rested eye brightener!!!
I have already used and become completely addicted to most of the products in this kit, so buying everything together for a saving was a no brainer :)
I can highly recommend the original primer - I also use this mixed 50:50 with the tinted version to take advantage of how beautifully smoothly it goes on, but adding a little coverage with the addition of the tint.
The revelation here for me is the well rested brightener - I use this as a concealer all over and it is an AMAZING product - it blends particularly nicely when you have used the primer in advance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KittyNibbles99 Best introduction to the best make-up EVER!!
I first started my journey with Bare Escentuals back in 2000 on a holiday to the US. Now the products are widely available in the UK which is fantastic news! This is the closest set to the original "starter kit" that was sold 15 years ago and is by far the best set you can buy if you are new to the range. As an indication of who I am I am a female in my 40s, fair complexion with combination skin that is also very sensitive. I have never had an issue with any of the BareMinerals range of products being used on my face.
Start with the Prime Time™ Foundation Primer to give the perfect base for your foundation.......
The Original Mineral SPF15 Foundation allowes you to select the coverage you want and stays put for hours. Simply decant some into the lid, swirl your brush in it, tap of the excess and buff on to the skin. The more you add/buff the more coverage you will get WITHOUT the old fashioned "caked on powdery" look....
I also received the "Well-Rested" concealer and used in combination with the Maximum Coverage Concealer Brush it almost appears to work miracles.... lol. Never under estimate the power of a BareMinerals powder concealer..... if works wonders, stays put for hours and the tiny amount you will need to use means it will last you for ages!
Team this up with one of the "Radiance" complexion enhancers and your skin looks flawless with a beautiful dewy glow.
The brushes in the kit last for so long, they are themselves a valuable addition to anyone's make-up collection.
If you are unsure if you should try BareMinerals, take a chance on this set, you will not be dissapointed....... even better visit a BM counter in store and arrange for a make-up trial, you will not believe the difference this amazing range makes to the look and feel of your skin.
BareMinerals is quite simply the best make-up in The World..... in my opinion ;o)

Rated 5 out of 5 by cjquinn25 Best kit out there!
I bought this kit as a birthday treat and I honestly love it! It has everything you need to have the complete make up look. It is an expensive kit but definitely worth the money. Would recommend this 100%
Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Great introduction to Bare Minerals
Great products. Love the primer, original foundation & mineral veil. Really good sizes - they will last ages. Gives me a really natural look & makes my skin tone more even. Didn't really wear make up before but this doesn't feel heavy or too made up. I would definitely recommend this set.
Rated 5 out of 5 by kiltgirl Take the plunge!
I actually bought this kit at a bM store in my home town. I entered the store looking haggard and tired and apologetic for my appearance and walked out clutching my new bag of goodies, glowing, looking quite a bit younger and slightly smug.
The kit contains everything you'll need to get going. Large and medium buffing brushes, good for the foundation, veil and bronzer...and my personal favourite, the concealer brush for effortless, magical elimination of those ageing reddened areas around the nose and chin.
Initially I was worried that the mineral powder I had chosen was too light, being fair and freckly I'd always bought foundations that added more colour to my face. I don't know why but I think many women start to use darker shades as we get older. The shade and tone (Fairly Light) is the exact match for my skin and offers and subtle healthy glow, much the same as (younger) naked skin would, without masking or looking heavy.
I looked in the mirror today and saw a glimpse of a much younger, brighter me that I'd long forgotten, sounds ridiculous really but it made me realise how I've been ageing myself using incorrect shades and tones.
After applying the primer and foundation and concealing, a sweep of bronzer to add some depth and a hint of colour. I opted for the blusher to be included in my kit. Its lovely and soft and subtle.
My only regret is that I didn't take the plunge sooner... I was so sick of looking in the mirror and cringing at my mismatched foundation and concealers. I see it as an investment, I already look and feel so much better and my skin feels much softer than it did before! I was told this would happen but seeing is believing.
I'm going back on my birthday for an eye makeover, can't wait!
I feel transformed and am most definitely hooked on bareMinerals.

After a long time of friends recommending bareMinerals, I finally got round to ordering! I decided that the Flawless Complexion Kit was a good place to start so I can get everything I need at once without spending a fortune.
I ordered the READY SPF20 Foundation which is ideal for my dry skin and has really good coverage- quick to apply for day to day and easy to build for going out at night. After reading reviews, I chose the Precision Face Brush to go with the foundation- great recommendation!
The correcting concealer is really good at covering red areas and old spot scarring but also works really well under the eyes when applied using the Maximum Coverage Concealer Brush that comes in the kit.
For the 'complexion enhancer' I chose the Faux Tan All-Over Face Colour- its really good because you can build the colour to the darkness you want- I have quite fair skin so don't need to use much for it to do its job. I'm not sure if it's meant to be used with this but the Flawless Application Face Brush also included in the kit is a little soft to apply the bronzer- needs to be a bit sturdier to have complete control.
I've not yet tried the Primer or Mineral Veil (saving them for going out rather than day to day wear)- but I'm looking forward to trying!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Mims Truly incredible- best make up I have ever used
I had thought about using this brand for a while but I have scarred and red skin caused by falling over a lot due to a medical condition. Used it for the first time today and was stunned! It has covered my red patches and scars so they are not detectable. I have previously spent a small fortune on high end make up and also used heavy specialist scar cover products - none of them gave a good coverage without looking caked on. Today my skin looks so fresh and natural but without any imperfections. I also have very fair skin and it is perfectly matched by the foundation.
Only wished I had bought this ages ago instead of wasting time and money on other brands. If you are thinking about trying this for the first time - go on, give it a go. You will never look back!
