Rated 2 out of 5 by BrummieMoneypenny Not for me
I was SO excited to finally get my hands on this foundation and brush. I'm a huge fan of BM mineral foundation so bought this on the back of being really happy with the powder but wanting a brighter perfected foundation. I didn't get it. It's an unusual consistency, it's almost like a dry oil and you only need one drop in the well of the brush. I started with one and straightaway I could see it was the wrong colour for me. I'd chosen the colour using the online matches on the BM website but it was too orange for me. One of the reasons I love the mineral powder is that hardly any effort is needed to apply it but this required abit of work. I found the brush too small and too dense and felt it was dragging my skin as I tried to even out the foundation. The brush head is just too small and I had trouble getting into the nooks and crannies around my eyes. Overall I used around 3 drops and didnt get a lot of coverage at all, it was too time consuming having to stop and add more drops and slap it on again. It also highlighted dry patches on my cheeks, giving a horrid scaly appearance. Not good at all! I will be returning this item and sticking with my foolproof BM mineral foundation. I wish I had more positive things to say about this but I havent. If you want to try this then head to your local BM counter and get a proper colour match and test the coverage, or just try the brilliant mineral foundation.

Bought this set as on Easy Pay and the fact the brush was included in the price.
I wear Fairly Light in Mineral form and opted for Bare Linen. Found the colour to be a good choice for my skin. Generally speaking, my skin is sensitive, but in good condition no dry patches etc. I used 3/4 drops initially, which gave me a really good coverage, followed by some mineral veil. My friend used this also, but the effect was totally different, patchy etc.
I would say this product works well if your skin is well balanced, neither only or dry. I do like this and would purchase again. The only reason I would not recommend to a friend etc, is due to skin condition, I really think you need to be able to try out in-store first and know it works for you.

I have been using the original BM foundation (in medium and medium beige) and I love it. Really wanted to try this and as it was on easy pay thought this was my opportunity. I ordered the Bare Linen and the Bare Natural. Both colours were ok for me, but they had no staying power. Within 2 hours of applying it was coming off! Also my eye products don't stay in place when I use this. I have found this product to be too shiny for me, not dry at all and will be returning both and going back to the original. What is it they say...."If it's not broken........!!

I have been wondering whether or not to purchase this product due to the fact that it appeared very shiny. Decided to take the plunge and it arrived this morning. What can I say there is no shine whatsoever it's like applying chalk it's awful makes the skin look so dehydrated. Obviously there is something wrong with the mix and I would love to hear from others whether they found the same. Such a shame I really wanted to use this new product.
