hi--I haven't gotten the beginner set yet--I still have a powder foundation by Loreal that I have been putting on with a big brush in the manner they tell you to use BE, and it does so much better than the powder puff does! That makes it look heavey and uneven. I DID order the BISQUE--and it is good for covering little broekn vessels and small blemishes....it didn't do dor my dark circles under my eyes....I have very dry thin skin there (I'm 56) and so a powder DOESN'T help that area--it accentuates the wrinkles you already have!! SO--I'm STILL hunting for a good undereye cover and still looking for advice from ANYONE who has good thoughts about this!
I also have thin eyebrows, so I ordered the eyebrow powder, brush and finisher--which I love dearly--SO much better than an eyebrow pencil-any I've ever used! I see in the future that I'll be buying the powder base--but not til I run out of the Loreal that I have--can't afford to just toss that!!
