I have used this range before and it is the best without any doubt normaly i would use the loose powder, but as this was part of a collection and tsv previously i thought i would try it and its fabulous, you would not be disappointed.

I wasn't sure about this at first. Couldn't get the coverage I wanted without repetitive strain injury!! I tried ready and although looked fab at first really broke up on my skin so I went back to this. After hearing SJ say to put mineral veil on first if you're very oily, I tried that and wow. Much better coverage and staying power. I live it

Years ago I was stopped in a big department store asking me if I wanted to try Bare Minerals in a demo situation . I had some previous experience of powder foundations and found that even with , at that time, my relatively young skin, the finish was awful, cakey . powdery and with all the product sinking into my pores - not pretty at all.
Thought I would give it another go as the reviews were so great so I ordered this .
I used it when I was going to have my Passport Photo done - they always look horrible so I thought it was the ultimate challenge.
Once again, the product had sunk into the skin, made my face look hard and gave the skin a dead ashy look - I scrapped the photos and went back the next day in "normal" foundation and the photos were considerably better , i.e.. I didn't look like a corpse !
For my age, I am told I have great skin , it needs a little coverage on the cheek area but it doesn't need this powdery , dead look .
I will stick to my creams in future , my skin is on the dry side of normal and I don't believe that powder foundations are the way forward for dry skin . I can't say that this won't work on normal or oily skin and clearly it must work well on some people or it wouldn't sell at all but I would say that to those ladies with dry skin , this is probably not for you .Try it, you can always send it back !

Quick and effective
Having reached 80 years of age I really needed some make up which was not obvious but did its job, evening out the skin tone and giving me a favourable complexion. This product is really good, goes on so quickly with the big brush and the results are far better than my usual foundation lotion. I shall certainly continue to use this from now on, perfect for my needs.
