Rated 1 out of 5 by summerfallwinterspring Summer bisque/concealer
I bought this product yesterday and could hardly wait to try it. Having very sensitive skin especially around the eye area, I was hoping that this would not irritate that area. Have recently had a bad eye make-up experience which resulted in contact dermatitis and now that that has cleared up decided to give a mineral product a try. Only used a slight bit of the product under the eyes, slightly on the lids and in the corners closest to the nose just to give it a trial run, so to speak in case it turned out I was allergic to the product. Washed my face in the usual manor and much to my horror, 30 mins. later my eyes felt a little swollen and much to my horror I have terrible dark bruising in the areas that I had applied the summer bisque concealer! My eyes look as if I have been struck in both eyes. Cannot believe this but read a review by another person who described an issue very similar to mine as she stated that the dark area under her eyes were worse AFTER using the product. Don't know what I can do to eliminate the "bruising" but will be returning the product ...that's for sure! Wish I had not had this type of reaction as I really liked the coverage.
Rated 5 out of 5 by ArmyWife75 Amazing product that conceals EVERYTHING!
I received a mini size with my trial purchase to see if I would like this product. After only 2 uses, I was in love! This stuff is awesome! I have freckles, blemishes and even red marks on my face. This concealer blends effortlessly into my skin and covers everything naturally! I call it my "disappearing act" because its that great! I sometimes will wear just this with some blush and it works great! Highly recommend this product

This concealer has saved me so many times. I use it to cover the dark circles under my eyes on days I don't get enough sleep. It is my lifesaver in the summer to help control shine in the t-zone. I wear summer bisque concealer and medium to medium beige foundation.
Rated 4 out of 5 by martinaj78 Nice concealer
Used this for years before switching to the new correcting concealer. I give this one only 4 stars because it's not as good at "micro" concealing as the new correcting concealer (good for under eye circles, but not blemishes). In addition, more shades need to be created for this, as I did not have a good shade match with any of these options.
Rated 1 out of 5 by stargazer4 Need to go back to older style package
The newest container is awful. You can't get all product out. This makeup is good but costly, so being able to utilize all of it is important. Also, with the new packaging, there is less makeup as well. Please correct this packaging issue, so that all product can be used.

I am 47 years old and was given Bare Minerals by my mother. It was kit that she ordered and decided to pass on to me and my daughter. I could not believe this concealer, it was the best I have ever tried. It complete covered these small veins around my nose and when I have red spots it is flawless. I love all the Bare Minerals makeup , I am totally impressed , I normally wear Mary Kay but am slowly switching over. I am a breast cancer survivor and used this product when going through chemotherapy too as you start to look a little pasty.

I use this in Bisque as an all over foundation when I don't want to wear a lot of anything. I have some redness and this tones it down. This is my "Go To," concealer when I use my Ready Foundation. I have tried others and I should just stop because this has lasted longer than anything else I purchased.
Rated 3 out of 5 by PaleFaceChick73 Not for Fair skin shades -- please add a shade!
Let me start by saying that I truly love almost all Bare Minerals products, been using them for several years, and have seen remarkable changes in the appearance and texture of my 39 year old face. I use the Matte foundation in "Fair", oddly enough combined with the Ready foundation in the lightest shade as well. Not sure if anyone else uses this combo, but the "Fair" shade in the loose foundation is actually a little dark for my skin, so a very little amount of the Ready foundation helps to lighten it up. My skin is very pale, and I happen to like it that way. Embrace who you really are, right? I also use the cleansers, moisturizers and skin treatments, primer, eyeshadow, etc., but I digress.
Anyway, I was looking for a concealer to compliment the foundation I wear on a daily basis. I have very fair skin, but tend to get dark circles under my eyes from genetic predisposition. I also have some redness around the creases of my nose that are not sufficiently covered by the foundation without caking it on. Then I run into the makeup looking heavy and actually accentuating my fine lines especially around my eyes instead of diffusing them. So my search was on to find a concealer that I would hope cover these areas without caking. I found this product and even though it didn't list a "Fair" option, I figured I would give the "Light" shade a shot. Unfortunately this didn't work out so well. While the texture and coverage of the product seemed good (which is why I gave it 3 hearts), and looked as if it would conceal, the shade for my skin tone was completely wrong. It made my eyes look as if the darkness underneath was worse instead of better, and the redness around my nose was replaced with dark patches. I tried to see if putting my fairest foundation over this concealer product would work, but it didn't. The "Light" concealer is way too dark for my face and I have not found a way to make it work for my fair skin tone. I think I would love this product if only it was made for me!
One more caveat -- I can't even enter "FAIR" in reviews that include skin shade! Again my closest choice is "light". If "fair" became a choice for not only this product, but also a criteria for writing a review and selecting your skin shade, I might be able to more accurately judge appropriate products for my skin shade. There is a HUGE difference between "light" and "fair", and I would like to know if colors and shades would work for me without being too dark or overpowering.
To the powers that be -- Thanks for reading, and please please please take more consideration for those of us with the fairest of fair skin tones. I also wouldn't mind if the Original and Matte loose foundations came in a fairer shade than "Fair".
Rated 5 out of 5 by Btixa The best
I have 3 concealers now, they are expensive and better of all concealers wich I know, but I forgot about them after the purchase of this product of BareMinerals. This one is the best! This covers the very dark circles under my eyes, it's not dry the skin and does not accentuate the wrinkles. Also I use this for lightening of my upper eyelids and as a basis for the shadows. Moreover it is good hides the pores, also perfect conceals any redness, dark spots and other blemishes of the skin. I happy that I discover this powder-concealer for myself

Best concealer I've found for aging skin - takes a little practice to use it correctly but once you have the hang of it it's wonderful - excellent coverage, no creasing, no smearing. Blends well with foundation, etc.
Rated 4 out of 5 by tMqig Too shimmery
Now that Bare Minerals has a Matte foundation, they need to make a Matte Bisque concealer to accompany it. It looks odd to only have shimmer under my eyes and over blemishes while the rest of my face is matte. I love this concealer and I love that it's a powder but PLEASE make a Matte version!!!
Rated 5 out of 5 by M9511 Concealer that really lasts
I am able to use this concealer ALL day with no touch ups. It is the best I have ever used and does not look clumpy.

I've been using the Honey Bisque for about six years now. My grandmother started my on the product, especially being a cheerleading and dancer it's a great tool to have when going through puberty. My face had instantly cleared up and now I receive compliments daily on how great my make-up looks.
This will be the only concealer I ever use again!!
Rated 5 out of 5 by threeblessings Under foundation or in place of foundation
Been using this for about 6 months. Previously used for spot concealer; now it takes the place of my foundation. Can be used alone or layered. Great coverage.

I developed dark spots all over my once before clear face after having my third child. Bare minerals is the only thing that makes me feel pretty again. Thank you!

I have been a customer for 10? years. This product is my favorite and I use it daily prior to applying my foundation. I have sever allergies and Rosacea and have no issues with this product. This works great to help even my skin tone, with Rosacea I have dark spots, red spots and areas that I need to control blushing. I use the Bisque color on my Fair skin. Only negative is I do not use it on my nose, if it is hot and I "glow", it makes my makeup look blotchy.
