I got this foundation in the pallet set with bronzer and finishing veils and I love it it's so easy to apply great for traveling. The only reason why I cannot give it a 10 is because one day I got ready with the original Matte foundation powder and then in the evening I had traveled and I took this with me and wanted a touch up unfortunately it doesn't Blend well with the matte foundation powder also I wish it came in matte because it is a little bit shiny for my oily skin and it doesn't last for 12 hours it claims it does I feel like after eight maybe because I have oily skin it wears off quick.

Best eye concealer and highlighter
When I first bought bareMinerals this is the first thing that was recommended to me for an under eye concealer and it does really brighten up your whole face. recently I started becoming obsessed with contouring my face and this is a great highlighter because it has a little bit of shimmer but at the same time you get the benefit of concealing

I love this foundation, it doesn't break me out and it makes my skin look flawless. The only reason why I don't give it a 10 is because it doesn't last eight hours on me unfortunately I do have oily skin I've even try using it with the oily skin primer and unfortunately it just doesn't work. The only thing that I have found that helps make it last for 12 hours is it works with the finishing spray from Mary Kay, but I don't really like using that all the time because the spray does have alcohol and if I use more than a day in a row it does break me out. However if I wet the foundation it last at least 10 hours but it does make the color darker so if you want to use the foundation wet you might want to color match it wet in a bareMinerals boutique but I do love it wet because it's easy to apply it it's just like a liquid foundation. Sometimes I feel like when I apply it when I get more compliments on my flawlessness of my skin. Also another benefit of applying it wet is when during the summertime when you get tanner skin you can use your normal color bareMinerals foundation and just wet it and usually it'll match your tan skin color otherwise during the winter time it doesn't really match. Also, it takes a long time to apply it when it's dry which is another reason why I can't give it a 10 in order to make your skin have that airbrush look at least 4 to 5 minutes of application time.

Best Concealer Wet or Dry
I absolutely love this concealer I would never switch it. I use it wet or dry. I have really red skin on my cheeks and I wet the concealer and brush (with a synthetic brush) it on and it's kind of like a liquid foundation and covers everything leaves my skin flawless sometimes I don't even need to put the foundation on but I love the bareMinerals foundation too so I do use it. You can use it for under eyes, scars, or blemishes, I use it wet for my red skin and for my really bad scars but normally I can just use it dry on regular light scars or acne. The best part is that I feel that it even helps lighten my current scars and it doesn't even make me break out.

Horrible leaves white streaks
I bought this because I have oily skin. I thought that it would make a difference in making my matte foundation from bareMinerals last longer but unfortunately it did the opposite it doesn't control oilless you can see all your pores so it doesn't smooth or fill anything either and worst of all it leave these white streaks as if they were drool on your face if you don't blend in well enough and even then where you end the application of this on your face the foundation sticks to it and makes noticeable lines. I also have some redness on my cheeks but I honestly do think that this made it worse and even made me break out. Since I spent so much money on the primer I didn't want to have to throw it away because I lost the box and couldn't return it. I asked the consultant at bareMinerals what I should do because i thought bareMinerals foundation was no longer providing coverage even though it never was a problem when I use the neutralizing primer and you couldn't notice any redness on my cheeks and they recommended that I use the foundation wet which in the end did help with coverage tremendously and made my skin look good even with this primer, so until I run out of this primer I'm using my foundation wet which I don't mind because my application for the foundation is much quicker now. However I will never purchase this primer ever again.

The coverage is good but you still need concealer for the extra dark spots. The color is close to my skin color. My complaints are that it stays well everywhere except for my nose. It doesn't matter how much I apply it melts away only on my nose. I've tried primer even though its included and setting powder but nothing works. Plus there isn't much option of a selection for shades. Overall I like how it does quicken my routine but I won't be repurchasing this because of the staying power on my nose.

Didnt make my lashes look longer or fuller. Ok for a natural look. The best part it doesn't smudge and easy to remove (when removing it doesn't give u raccoon eyes)

Not worth the money
I have oily and acne prone skin. This didn't give me acne but my face look like it was melting after an hour definitely not a matte finish. It made my skin look so greasy and didn't stay on all day. I really wanted to like it I even tried using a primer before applying my foundation but didn't even work. IfI'm going to be paying $40 foundation it should work
