    This blos pretty interesting and I like your post but your 1st fact and 25th fact contradict each other and your 12th fact is untrue, marketing laws mean that manufactuers can label a product as natural even if only one ingredient is ‘natural’. Just thought I would point that out as this sayd ‘facts’

You can start out with the starter kit, you get two foundations you usually have to mix them a bit to get the right color its so simple! You get Warmth which looks dark but it isn’t it just adds a natural sunlight look to you. You get Mineral Veil it perfects your look and gives you that smooth finish : )You get three brushes the brushes are unlike any other don’t try any imitations the B.E. brushes are wonderful! You usually get a starter DVD also you will watch it the first couple times you put it on I remember I panicked and thought Id never remember the order to put it on : )I put mine on a little heavier than the DVD suggests it works well for me.They are on QVC all the time, so check QVC for great deals : )I have amoslt all of my friends and co-workers wearing B.E. now we are addicted : )I think my favorite would be the Well Rested for your eyes no matter how tired you are you put that around your eyes and you look well well rested!Oh and the Bisque it covers trouble spots liver spots blemishes dark circles and other things : )It DOESN’T come off when you sweat its safe to sleep in!I cant say enough about this make up try it you will LOVE it!Oh and don’t panic your face might feel a little dry the first 3 4 days that you use it but it will go away!Hope this helps ~ B.E.
