I bought the original starter kit at the mall that had like 3? foundations a setting powder the brush, concealer and what not...But I wasn't a huge fan. I think it depends on your skin though. For me, it turned greasy way to fast and even the lightest color in the kit was slightly too dark and yellow. But some people do like it :) Everyone's different.

I am pretty sure that is the same kit that is sold at Bed Bath and Beyond, if you have that store where you are and don't want to order by mail. I saw it up at the cash register recently when I was there. I have never tried that makeup myself though.

Yeah after doing proactiv and dealing with SUPER bad customer service I never order from infomercials. I actually got my kit from Bed Bath and Beyond =) But the kit they had wasnt' the one from the infomercial. I don't recall how much I payed though....either 30 or 40 I wanna say.

My mom was watching that infomercial today, too. She was about to make an impulse buy for me without my knowledge, but luckily, she paused for about 5 seconds and remembered to ask me. (Did we learn something from Proactive? Did we?)

I looked them up online and saw the possibility of bismuth oxychloride being an ingredient, which I'm trying to stay away from. So, I talked my mom out of buying it by getting her to buy me the EM sample kit, instead. :D

I found the "this is the makeup all the movie stars and models wear" ploy to be very off-putting. That made me want to gag, even before I looked up the ingredients, so I was already a bit biased.

Tacky. Very tacky. But, what infomercial isn't, even a bit, tacky?

I looked at this, included in the price they also send you a kit and charge you if you don't cancel. Well they do here in the UK, I would think very carefully about thier cancellation policy too.

Sheer Cover is the competitor of Bare Escentuals, the two products have identical ingredients. Many people who used BE have suffered breakouts and some have their skin permanently damaged (like myself, I still have the acne scars from some of my worst breakouts from BE). So I strongly suggest you don't get it.
