The reason I was sent 3 foundations to choose from was I wasn't sure which one would work for me. I really had not expected 3, I had told them to send me the one closest to the shade that fit me. I thought they would send me one to try but they sent three to choose from and it's a good thing that they did because I could not decide myself once I got them. I did settle on the Fair because the Fairly Light was a tad too dark and the Fairest was too light. It went on really smooth (I did use the Kabuki Brush). If you do decide to use mineral makeup you really need to invest in a Kabuki Brush. I found this out pretty quick while I was testing other mineral makeup. It just makes the whole process so much more smoother and looks more polished than if you use a powder puff or other type of brush.
I used the Silk Translucent Sheer Perfection over the foundation to set it and make it look better. I only used a tiny bit as it does not take much. If you use too much it won't look right so please be careful and go slow until you get the look you want. Of the two blushes I liked the Bliss the best for summer/spring and I would use the Cool Kiss as a bronzer for the winter. It might not be what it was meant for but in my opinion that is how I would use them.
The Bliss Blush is a nice soft color and makes your cheeks look like you are blushing slightly while the Cool Kiss is slightly darker. Of course, I use such a tiny amount that if you wanted your color to be more dramatic it can also do that by adding more on top of more. I am so fair skinned that if I used alot it would look fake and I would look like a clown!
Now, I am not a big eye shadow person, but I do wear it occasionally and the two colors that Mineral Hygenics sent were pretty good shades for me. They are both like enough that I would not look made up and just dark enough for you to know I have something on. Of the two I liked Dusty Rose the best. It gave my eyes a slightly pinkish beige look that brought out my eyes more.
As with the foundation, I don't put much on. I use the tips of my fingers and lightly go over my eyelids just enough to sorta blend in so that it is not darker than the color on my face. I try to make my makeup blend in together so that it is one continuous color. I am too old to wear the bright colors that younger women wear and I know it. Not saying I want to look old but I don't need to make it obvious I am older by wearing something that does not agree with me. So, that is my rule of thumb on makeup, put on just enough to blend in my faults but not too much that draws attention to the fact that I am getting older.
Mineral Hygenics is a really good, solid mineral makeup and you should have no problems with it. If you do, they have the 100% money back guarantee on the Starter Kit or if you choose to just get one or two items then you have 45 days to return it if it isn't what you wanted or expected.

Oh, one other thing I did not mention. This makeup stays on til you go to bed! I know I used to wear makeup, mineral and regular that would fade or bleed out long before time to call it a day. Mineral Hygenics stayed on until I had to use makeup remover! This means those of you who work can safely wear your makeup all day long w/o re-touches and that alone should save you some money.
