Compared side by side in store, the Kabuki that comes w/ this set is a teeny tiny bit smaller. Not a mini but not quite as big as the regular w/ the zipper case. However I like this one much better, its the perfect size and easy to use, great quality too :)

the best way is to go to a sephora store and get color matched.
another way is using temptalia.com 's foundation matrix

The Microfinish Powder and Primer are "to go" sizes that are also sold by Sephora. The Foundation and the Brush are full sizes. The brush does not come with it's zipper case though.

- 0.17 oz HD Microfinish Powder (HD Microfinish Powder To Go is $15.00 on it's own and also 0.17 oz)

- HD Kabuki Brush (full size. zipped pouch NOT included. $39.00 on it's own)

- 0.5 oz HD Microperfecting Primer (HD Microperfecting Primer To Go is this size and is $15.00 on it's own)

- 1.01 oz HD Invisible Cover Foundation (full size product) $40.00 on it's own

So that's where the $109.00 value comes from.
You don't get the brush pouch, but considering not having it getting you $30.00 off the set is a great deal.

Hope that helps <3

The foundation is full size and the brush is the same size as the one that's retailed in stores, but without the zipper pouch, and the primer and powder are the travel versions that are also sold separately in stores.

I've found my breakouts have become less frequent because I love the way it looks AND it doesn't irritate my skin, so I don't touch my face like I used to.

I was dithering between 125 & 128 this summer (was slightly tanned). Tested both in the store & I thought 125 was a *true* neutral beige and 128 was a teench darker AND ever-so-slightly warmer in color. I bought 125 (I wear 118 during the winter).

I would go to a store if you can. I went 3 times and the first time was told a different color. Then the next 2 times the same color. All from 3 different associates. So I picked the one they picked twice of course and it has been a perfect shade. Go home after they put it on you so you can see what it looks like and check it out in your car and in different lights before you buy one.

They just have slight shade differences, both have beige undertones but 128 is slightly darker. If you're buying in-store then have an employee do a swatch on your skin to see which matches you better. If you're buying online then it's basically just your decision on whether you believe you're closer to a 'fair' skin tone or a 'medium' skin tone.

Does this product cause acne?
I have issues with acne because I have sensitive, acne-prone skin. I don't have oily skin though, in fact my skin is fairly dry. I was wondering if this product caused breakouts and was somewhat moisturizing. Thank you!

I also have problem skin to the point where even BE foundation sinks into my pores and makes me break out. I have been using this for the past 2 months and its amazing. I use my regular skincare routine and use the primer (which I think is a big player in not letting it sink into your pores) and I cant say I had any problems with breakouts caused by this product (even when dancing all night long in a club, when ur sweating and ur pores are open) =0) Hope this helps. <3

Can customers try the foundation and powder in the store before buying?
Do the Sephora stores carry all the shades so that customers can try to match with their particular skin tone before actually purchasing this product?

I highly recommend trying on in store before you buy. The Sephora associates are fantastic, not high-pressure at all, and they know the product so well! I would have chosen the wrong color, because I didn't know the matte finish foundation changed color slightly as it dried. It looked too light at first, but was perfect after a couple of minutes. I'm so glad I was able to visit a store first! I also have extremely sensitive skin, so I wanted to try before I paid that much.

Yes, yes and yes! This is the best store you can shop at for makeup. Try it on in the store yourself or ask for help. The associates are great and honest, not just trying to make a sale. If you dont like what you buy, you can always return. They have a great refund policy. They will also give you a sample to take home if you are nervous about purchasing.
