Rated 5 out of 5 by Kittycott So glad I gave it a second chance!!
I got this original foundation in a set from QVC a months ago and hated it.I found it sat in my open pores and fine lines and made me look (and feel) caked in a thick layer of make up. I even went to the Bareminerals counter & them which brush would help. The assistant recommended the Beautiful Finish brush that you get here but that didn't help either so they have both remained in a draw full of unwanted make up at great expense to me! That was until a couple of days ago when I saw a demo from BM on QVC & it changed everything! They explained to use a little tiny amount and buff buff buff because the minerals then warm & with the oils on your skin & expand so buffing helps with coverage. Sorry if that's not the exact science of it but it was enough to convince me to give it another try.........OMG what a difference it has made. My skin looks dewy, flawless and dare I say gorgeous! I'm SO happy I gave it another try. Less is definitely more in the case if this foundation. Now I don't think I will ever use anything else. I was previously using LG balance & brighten but this is amazing and is now my favourite! X

Rated 3 out of 5 by 101Spaniels NOT FOR THE MORE MATURE WOMAN - FACT!!
I am completely new to Bare Minerals and on my first application of this, the original powder, I have to say that in 35 years of wearing make-up, this is by far THE BEST - Bar None - finish I have ever seen either on myself or someone else. It is absolutely stunning - flawless doesn't even begin to describe it. It has a sheen to it, is beautifully smooth, goes on easily and your face at the end of the application is catwalk-ready!!! NOW for the bad news. Oh, to be in my twenties or thirties again!! Then I would without hesitation use this product every single day. I am now 63 and can say that in my opinion, the beautiful coverage shows each and every wrinkle in high definition! Then, as if that wasn't enough, a double whammy ensures that it highlights open pores and makes them double in size. I looked much, much older! GUTTED does not begin to describe how I felt, after my initial euphoria, the disappointment was dreadful. I agree completely with the reviewer who said that you need to be young with a perfect skin to use this powder. In my opinion, it is most definitely not for an older woman and I am so, so disappointed. I have really good skin thanks to Liz Earle's Cleanse & Polish, which used regularly, ensures that you have absolutely no pimples, lumps or bumps, just lovely clear skin, but unfortunately, you cannot stop the passing of time. I do have the wrinkles (not that many, I hope) of my age group and there is just no way that this powder was doing me any favours at all. As well as showing the age of my skin, I was quite disappointed to find that my dry areas started to become uncomfortably drier about one hour after application, which leads me to wonder (in common with other reviewers), if a powder foundation is the way forward for a mature skin, instead of a good hydrating liquid foundation. (I use Doll 10 Hydragel from QVC, which is marvellous). Anyway, very regrettably, this powder is not for me, but younger ladies, please do give it a try, it is absolutely gorgeous. It's not the powder's fault that I can't use it, but Father Time's!!!
