Rated 5 out of 5 by Butterfly13 Great value set for light/medium coverage
This 3 piece set with the brush is great value but only gives light/medium coverage.
I apply the complexion rescue in butter cream for a quick light base, I then apply ready wear foundation in R170 (not in this set) where I need more coverage as I have areas of pigmentation. Finally I apply a light layer of mineral veil. This gives me really good coverage with stays on all day.
I highly recommend this set as a base and finishing powder with brush if only light/medium coverage is needed.

So looking forward to trying this but I am afraid this is not for me. Does not cover my freckles, makes them even more noticeable. Will have to return.

I found the consistency a little strange and not enough coverage, so I tried to apply a bit more and it felt cakey. I didn't like the fact that it settled into the crease of my eyelids. I will be returning and sticking to the original formula which I have been using for a few years now.

I love all things Bare Minerals, and am always eager to try out their new products. I usually wear loose mineral foundation on my days off, Ready foundation for work, but thought I would give this a whirl as I was going abroad and liked the sound of the SPF 30.
Firstly, the range of colours is very impressive. I have tried tinted moisturisers in the past and the medium or dark option always make my skin look 'dirty' on applcation (I am olive skinned normally). I chose 'Natural' in the complexion rescue. The application is really easy and I applied the product with my fingertips. It spreads well on the skin and has a cool feel upon application. The coverage is very natural but can be built up for heavier coverage. It left my face looking flawless, with a healthy amount of colour and very subtle dewy glow. It didn't look like I had heavy make up on, just great looking skin!
I wore the complexion rescue on holiday during the day whilst sunbathing, as I have had allergic reactions to sun tan lotion in the past. The complexion rescue protected my skin from the sun's rays and left my complexion looking fresh and radiant throughout the day. I used a bit of bronzer to highlight areas of my face as my tan deepened, but overall this was a great colour choice for me.
The retractable brush is beautifully soft and such a handy travel size to keep in your handbag. The mineral veil leaves a natural healthy finish on the skin and helps to keep the complexion rescue in place all day.
I haven't got a bad word to say about this kit - it is great value for money and the quality and performance of the complexion rescue is fantastic.
If it helps with colour choices - I am an Olive skinned brunette who tans easily. I wear Medium Beige in the loose, Tan 310 in the Ready and I purchased Natural in the complexion rescue. My local BM counter colour matched me prior to me purchasing, but I'm told that this is a very forgiving product.
