The foundation is so lightweight - I never wore foundation before because it felt heavy, too creamy and just gross on my skin. BE foundation is like a powder, but it doesn't dry out your skin.
There is a good foundation primer to use that helps minimize pores and control oil, if you have skin issues with that. They also have a good lip primer and eye primer. The eyeshadow colors are beautiful and blend seemlessly together for a natural look. I never wore eyeshadow before, and now I am addicted to it!!
Ebay is a good place to buy for less. Here is a good site that includes a list of color charts for BE colors, as well as a forum for tips, comments and suggestions.
Welcome to Mineral Madness!

Be careful, because I bought mineral veil and the fairly light foundation (I tried to get the fair colour (even lighter than fairly light), but it kept selling out! So I got the next one down, the same colour I ran out of from the starter kit).
You know how if you swirl it around the lid a few times it kinda sticks to it and you have to get a tissue and clean the lid? Well the stuff off eBay did not stick!
The foundation was DARKER than I thought it was, and I couldn't tell the difference until after I used it (isn't that always the way!). It did stick a bit to the lid, but not as much as the starter kit stuff.
The mineral veil (from the same seller) did not have the same consistency as the original kit product. It did not stick at all to the lid, so it makes me wonder if it stayed on my skin at all.
This particular seller had a really good rating, but I'm not sure if I'll cheap out again on eBay. Love the product, but I'll order it right thru Sephora next time.

Does my face look too pale in comparison with my arms?
and i dont think your face is too much lighter than your arms, etc, but also, if it were its better than those girls you see with too much on their face, so its darker than everything else! i'd rather the face be a shade or so lighter, makes us look younger

Some of my friends love it. I have really sensitive skin so now I stay away from any "natural minerals" make-up products. Hope it works for you but you'll only know if you try it.

I was reading this little card that came with a sample & only some of the shades have zinc in them. The fairly light doesnt but the light does. could that be why people have mixed results?
tara, in that picture i think the difference is because you face is closer to the flash. I wore bare minerals at my wedding & didn't notice any weird reflecting in any of the pictures. I was wearing the light one that does have zinc.
at my brother's wedding there is a picture where my face looks white, but the photographer had his flash way up. he made mike's face pretty white too & he isn't wearing bare minerals.
