I'm not sure what to do...on the link page it says "only one per customer". So, if I order three I am worried they will just send one and it may not be the color I need most??!! What do you guys think??

I don't think it comes with a brush, doesn't this stuff use a special brush? Should I get that too?

ETA: OMG the brush is $28!

rainy~daze
06-27-2009, 07:48 PM
it says one per customer, why is everyone ordering 3? how do you know they will send all 3 and not just pick one and send it, then you get the wrong shade?

The shade color chosen is listed in the invoice email you get after you order.

but most of the people on here are saying they are ordering 3, I looked at the link, it says limit to 1 per customer. why would anyone take the risk on getting 3 just because it has a glitch and lets you order 3 that you get the wrong one, when you could have ordered just the one you are allowed to get and it is definitely the right one

What will happen most likely, on Monday they will see the error and cancel ALL the orders. There is always those who abuse things like this and this will not be the first time.

Thanks.

My emailed invoice has 3 listed. I didnt; see anything about limit one, but I didn't look much either. I could care less if it's the wrong shade or not, because I am just trying it out, so maybe it's the right one for all I know if they just send me 1. But if they emailed an invoice for 3, I highly doubt they will only send me one.

For $4, you can't beat it! Hopefully I will like the product enough to continue purchasing it for years to come.

Well the funny thing is the other day I tried to install the upgrade and it kept comeing back that it couldn't be installed, but it installed other stuff with it, so maybe it's the stuff that was installed with it. I think it had about 3 or 4 things, but the actual 8 wouldn't install for some reason.

I wonder if I try it on firefox.

I'm stuck between light and medium beige. Can anyone comment if the light if really light, or if the medium beige is tan, or a darker shade. My other foundation is called med. beige. I think the light looks really light. I hope I'm making sense!:lmao:

KayW
06-29-2009, 08:14 PM
Thanks I just ordered 3.

I used to use light, but it didn't give me the coverage I wanted. I've been using the medium for a while and love it. My skin tone is kind of in between fair and medium-I have dark hair and blue eyes if that helps.

The light is pretty light. I use that and fairly light. My sister made me try her shade, medium beige, and it was a bit too dark for me. She's more olive toned where I just have peachy undertones. Does that make sense? If not, we can hang out. :rotfl: I used to wear Revlon Buff Beige and I thought it was a little off.

Tina

Keep in mind that Bare Escentuals is in powder form. If your shade isn't exactly right, you can mix colors together to get it right. I've been using it for about a year or so now. The Fair is too light for me, but the Fairly Light is still not quite right. I use the Fair with a splash of light mixed in every morning and I get the perfect shade for me.

So which one is the darker of the two -- light or fairly light? I don't want the lightest one, but probably need the next one after that.

ETA: Never mind. I guess it helps to read the description of each shade. Yesterday I went to a B&M JC Penney store, but the Sephora counter was all covered up and still under construction, so I'm just going to order online. Thanks for the deal, OP!

So do you think you got a month's worth being that you ordered 3 (3 10day supply = 30 days)? Do you feel like it saved you any $$$ vs. buying the regular size? Or was the total amount of makeup only a portion of the regular size? Sorry for all the questions!!!! LOL :rolleyes:Just trying to figure out if it's worth the order.....thanks!!!

Ms.Grumpy

Or was the total amount of makeup only a portion of the regular size? Sorry for all the questions!!!! LOL :rolleyes:Just trying to figure out if it's worth the order.....thanks!!!

Well I've never used this stuff before, so I have no idea how much I will actually use..if it will last me longer than 10 days or shorter. I also have no clue what a regular size looks like or cost. But this only cost me $4.21, so we'll see how I like it. I do know with liquid, I may pay a bit more for a bottle, but it last me longer than a month..several motnhs actually, so unless this proves to be absolutely wonderful, I most likely won't buy it regularly.

One thing I liek about the small amount I brushed on today quicky, just to try it is that it feels like I have makeup on. I was worried about that. I like the liquid because I can feel it. I hate real powdery stuff the flies off my face quicky, and so far this feels like it is sticking. LOL! Not heavy, but I don't feel naked either.

I have always wanted to try it glad I ordered the 3 if I had only ordered 1 I would be seriously upset about the size.

thank you op for the post am glad I am finally getting to try this out even if their ad was totally deceptive.

jenseib
07-06-2009, 03:54 PM
Thats what I thought too, but I have used it 4 times and still have some left in there. You need very littel surprisingly. You have to tap the brush each time and buff away and it has alot of coverage. I was a doubter too, but once I used it, I was shocked that so little went so far. I don't know if I'll actually buy the stuff though.

livie1205
07-06-2009, 05:09 PM
I have used this stuff for a few years and I love it! I wouldnt worry about them being small....a little bit goes a long way.It does not take much of the base powder to get a good look, and the brushes alone are worth the shipping....those darn brushes are very pricey!

mamalle
07-06-2009, 05:16 PM
hum.. very small IMO. I would of gotten 3 of I would of known how small it was going to be or actually gotten it at the mall and not paid for shipping.. oh well.. you live and learn

jenseib
07-06-2009, 05:19 PM
I have heard several talk about how great the brushes are, but I find them so small and hard to hold on to. Anyone else have this problem. If you buy the bigger amount is the brush bigger?

Agreed! I did get two tones because I wasn't sure if Fairly Light or Light is best for me, so I'm glad I didn't spend the money on a full size just to find out it didn't match!

07-06-2009, 06:48 PM
I've been using Bare Escentuals for some time now and I learned quickly that a little goes a long way. The first time I put it on, I thought I wasn't getting good coverage and used WAY yoo much. I ended up looking like a clown. LOL

These brushes, on the other hand, are not normal sized brushes. I'm sure they were made this small so they can be used in the lids of the little jars. the standard brush is much easier to use.

windycitymom
07-07-2009, 01:05 AM
I received my free samples and love it! After only ONE use, I could tell my pores were smaller. My skin looks better too. I will probably buy the full size once my sample runs out (that was their point of giving out free samples - to get people hooked:) How's is the rest of their make-up? Any deals out there?

karensi
07-08-2009, 03:54 PM
I received my free sample yesterday :thumbsup2 I really liked the way it went on and how it looked so I printed out the in store coupon.
I took it to the mall and went to JC Penneys, asked at customer service if they had a Sephora counter, the woman says "no", but tells me I can take it to the Sephora store that is in the same mall and redeem it there.
I told her that I was under the impression that it could only be redeemed at a JC Penney store (if a Sephora counter existed there).
Anyway, the woman at the customer service desk says that JC Penney owns Sephora and it would be "no problem".

So I go to the Sephora store and tell them what I was just told. The sales woman (at Sephora) practically laughed at me!! :rotfl2: She seemed incredulous that I was told that Sephora is owned by JC Penney :scared1:
She kept asking me, "who told you that?", and I kept telling her that the customer service woman at JC Penney's told me. She (the Sephora saleswoman) started telling other salespeople "do you know that this woman (me) was told that JC Penney owns Sephora??

I felt kind of foolish but it all worked out in the end.
I had to join the Sephora "club", just gave my name, birth month and day (to get a free sample on my BD :wizard:) and my e mail addy, then I was given the free sample.

Pretty easy after all was said and done, but I'm now wondering....does JC Penney own Sephora or not :confused3

Just wondering who was right??


Thanks,

Karen :):)

Hi Karen
I took that coupon to a JCP store at a mall, and JCP told me that since there is a Sephora store in the mall, that JCP can't sell that BE make-up. The lady at JCP told me to take the coupon over to Sephora and they should honor it. I took it over to the Sephora store and they gladly honored it. I wasn't given a hard time at all. Not sure why the Sephora employees by you gave you a hard time.

From the Sephora website:

Sephora USA and Sephora.com, both wholly owned by Mot Hennessy Louis Vuitton (LVMH), the world's leading luxury products company, select qualified candidates who are dedicated, innovative, show initiative, work well as team members, and are passionate about servicing the needs of our customers.

Yea... JCpenney... Louis Vuitton.... they're practically the same thing... :lmao:

They really didn't give me a hard time redeeming the coupon, although said I had to join the Sephora "club" (forget what the name of it was) in order to get the free sample. But actually glad I did, because of the benefits. I do think I will start using Sephora now, I do like the products.
They ,well really just one salesperson, kind of made me feel foolish, and almost like I was making it up (lying) that I was told that JC Penney owned Sephora.
I see from the next post, that JC Penney does not own Sephora, but heck, I didn't know that at the time and I did feel foolish when the saleslady made such a big deal about what I said :lmao:.

Thanks Tina, now I think I like Sephora even more. You're right.....JC Penney....Louis Vuitton.....Hmmmmmmm, whose make up would I like to be using ???

I wonder why the JC Penney saleswoman told me that???
Kind of strange :rolleyes:

Oh well, no real big deal...and now I learned something new.

got my samples today and I seriously doubt that is a 10 day supply more like one application!:rolleyes1


I have always wanted to try it glad I ordered the 3 if I had only ordered 1 I would be seriously upset about the size.

thank you op for the post am glad I am finally getting to try this out even if their ad was totally deceptive.




I got my order on the 2nd. I have used the one everyday since (and twice on Monday cause we went swimming). I still have another use or two out of it....so I'd say 10 days supply seems about right :thumbsup2

My husband works at the Penneys home office. Penneys definitely does not own Sephora! But my local Penneys has a Sephora inside, and the same mall has a Sephora, but Penneys carries the BE. The only thing that our Sephora inside Penneys does not carry is the hair products. But that is because it would be in competition with the hair salon at Penneys, which also carries hair products. I have to say that the 2 of them seem to work together. If the Penneys Sephora runs out of something, they will call down to the Sephora in the mall and they will honor it. I guess it all depends on each store.

I switched to BE about a year ago. The full sized makeup lasts a very long time for me. One full sized foundation lasts 4-5 months for me. When I was using MAC, I would go through the makeup a LOT faster. The blush lasts even longer because the color goes a LONG way!

Hi Girls-
For those of us who ordered, what do you think????? I have always used GLO Minerals before using the BARE samples. Although the BARE seems nice, it is a bit heavier feeling than my GLO MINERALS. The only downside to the GLO is that I can only seem to get it in my cosmetic surgeon's office (I haven't checked EBay though....you can probably find it there).

Tell me how satisified you are with the samples you received. I tried the medium beige and tan samples......both seemed almost the same and I couldn't tell the difference.

I got my 3 samples: light fairly, light, and medium beige. I can't tell much of a difference in color between them either. It seems to have more of a sheen than the Loreal mineral makeup I've been using.

I tried to put some swatches on to see which looked the best, but the one that blended in best on my forehead was not the same color that seemed to blend in best on my cheek- I don't know if I mixed up the samples or what. I will have to redo it and also let it wear for a while. Sometimes it seems like something that looked good inside looks too orange and hour later or when I go outside.

I just got mine and am stumped--can someone explain what to do with the white sticker with the arrow? I tried peeling it off but can't seem to do anything with it? Or am I supposed to pull off the whole transparent plastic lid, which I can't do either?

For those interested in knowing more about mineral makeup, this is a good WebMD article (http://www.webmd.com/skin-beauty/features/the-lowdown-on-mineral-makeup).

I switched from Bare Escentuals to Everyday Minerals (https://www.everydayminerals.com/)because I reacted to the Bismuth Oxychloride in BE. Also, Everyday Minerals is more budget-friendly.

I got lots of good brushes from BE's kits, though.

IIRC, you should be able to pull up the white sticker (it's been a while since I ordered from BE). I remember having to work at it with a pair of tweezers.

07-11-2009, 03:55 PM
Yeah...the sticker should just come right off but one of mine was a bit more difficult. Using tweezers is a good suggestion....

I got my three samples this week!! But, I have not tried it yet!

heartbeeps
07-12-2009, 12:56 AM
I got mine today. Each sample was a little bigger than the diameter of a quarter, I'd say. My 3 were "fairly light." I've used Youngblood before and have been using Arbonne for the past couple of years. I didn't think the coverage was as good as with Arbonne's mineral product but I'll throw it in my purse for a weekend getaway or last minute touch up at work, if needed. Didn't think it was worth the $4.23 shipping for all 3 - wished I had picked up one sample at the mall instead. (Oh yeah, that would have cost me $4.23 in gas... and who knows what else I would've bought while I was there!) :rotfl2:

As for that stupid arrow, I have no clue what it was trying to indicate but I was able to eventually peel off the sticker covering the make up holes. For those traveling, I suggest you NOT remove the entire label from a full-size package or you'll have a boatfull of make up on top of the holes! I found out the hard way; now I use a pair of medical scissors to only remove about 1/2 the sticker top so I don't lose so much make-up through the holes when I travel.

Has anyone received an $89 charge on their credit card for this? I didn't realize there was a 10 day trial and if you didn't send it back within the timeframe, you would be billed $89. Maybe I'm stupid, but I didn't notice this.
And the charge came from Pure Essentials, not Bare Essentials. I feel ripped off, big time.

jenseib
07-21-2009, 09:09 AM
No. When did you get yours? This doesn't even sound right. It's a ten day "sample". So there should be no charges other than shipping. Did you call and dispoute it?

I don't have any charge like that ~ just double-checked. Are you sure you went through the link on this thread & didn't find another trial somewhere?

Did you call & they told you we were supposed to send it back? Where did you see that?
I'm not sure what they would want.....they empty container???

I believe my mother-in-law has some mineral makeup called PurMinerals. That is the only one I can think of that sounds similar?

On another note...has another seen an increase in breakouts since using the Bare Minerals samples?? My skin has been horrible lately anyway, but my neck even broke out in a couple of spots! I stopped using it because now I am worried that it may have been the problem. I, of course, wanted to use it because it is supposed to help my skin.:confused3

Ok, I called the number back that was on my statement. It was for a sample of a tooth whitener. I haven't even opened it and it's just a little bitty box. I cannot believe they are charging me $89 when the website advertises a FREE sample. So I'm sorry I scared everyone. When I saw the Essentials part listed, all I could think of was the makeup. Obviously, I didn't read the fine print. I don't know who I am more mad at, the website or myself.

My mom got into this trouble, she order the trial and they charge you every month! When you call the number to cancell you never get through.when she finally spoke to someone and told them the problem and wanted to cancel..she heard some typing and a click and was hung up on...Eventually she had to close the credit card they kept charging and dispute the charges.

I have just started using mine as well and I have had a pimple on my chin and neck....I never break out but do get a pimple right before I start my cycle every month and it is not time for that...so I am thinking the same thing you are.....I also got a free sample (paid shipping only) of everyday minerals- I am hoping it will be similar without the breakouts. It is also a little bit cheaper. Anyone else have this problem????

You have to register. Then the page will become brighter (instead of the "greyish tone") and it will have instructions on what to do. It is a drag and drop thing. Just make sure you drag and drop in the shaded free sample section. If you accidentally drop the item in the buy section you can remove it later during checkout.
