Correcting Concealer Broad Spectrum SPF 20 - null
MORE than 5 stars!
After using the loose concealer for almost 5 years, I became curious about this concealer after it came out only because of the stated correcting benefits. After a couple of tries at getting the shade matching right, I discovered that this concealer brings more beautiful magic to my face than the loose did. It's great at highlighting, covering dark circles and my favorite is that it really does conceal blemishes quite well. When "micro" concealing, I use the precision concealer brush to "dab" at the blemish until it is appropriately covered, then I "dab" at the concealed blemish with some touch up veil to seal in the concealment. Works perfectly. I have achieved concealing perfection with this concealer compared to the loose concealer. I have to say also, that after using for 8 weeks or so, dark spots that were continually concealed appeared to be diminished--big bonus.
This is really a very great concealer. Worth the price. Bare minerals has always claimed that just their foundation is good enough to double as a concealer, but it's never quite done the trick. This is by far the best concealer I've tried: long lasting, great coverage, doesn't feel cakey or waxy. I can use this under my eyes, around my nose (where my skin can get dry. Other concealers generally make it worse), and on the occasional spot I'll get. Great job with this!
perfect color, too much titanium dioxide
my skin tone is medium but i have a lot of yellow tones in it, so i find it hard to find a good match when shopping for makeup. i had been using Almay Nearly Naked concealer in light/medium for years and was so disappointed when they discontinued it because i liked being able to buy a cheaper drug-store brand without having to spend a lot of money. when i ran out, i went to my local bare minerals store (i love the powder foundation) and found a perfect color match! i was so excited to try it! i mostly use it for under eye circles and blemish treatments. within a day i noticed the skin under and around my eyes was extremely irritated, red and puffy. i think it may be due to the high titanium dioxide content (the SPF), and cannot use it for under eye circles. I am so disappointed! i will still use it for blemish treatment but I'm hoping bare minerals will make either a lower titanium dioxide formula or one without it at all. other than that, the color is perfect for my skin tone (i'm using medium 2), it covers blemishes completely, is very creamy and hydrating and it lasts all day on my oily skin! i love it for the most part but i need a product i use all over.
makes my skin look blotchy....
I got the lightest color you can possibly get, and it still makes dark blotchy spots on my face. If there were more color choices to match skintones, it would be great!
I've been using the correcting concealer in Light for 2-3 months and love it. I only need a little bit around my eyes, nose and lips. No longer do I have to use liquid foundation all over my entire face, which leaves me with a natural look that I just love.
I needed something to blend away some uneven skintone under my eyes. I may not have selected the correct color tone so in defense of the product-I do love the consistency of it. However, it doesnt seem to last very long on my skin and doesnt conceal how I would like. It does offer hydration benefits which is a plus but I feel, for my aging skin, I may need something with a bit more kick.
I had a coupon, so I got it to try it out. AMAZING! Creamy, fluffy, and lots of coverage. No more dark circles, yay!
BEST CONCEALER EVER
i was having a real hard time finding a perfect concealer for my skin pigmentation and acne scars on my cheeks. I hated Mac and was ready to go to a dermatologist to do the laser scar removal. My mom would tell me how much a waste of money it is and give it time. She also told me go buy Bare Minerals, which she seen on her favorite tv show/website QVC. I never believed her and finally a week ago i went to a store called ULTA to find a concealer. The consultant put every concealer on my face and it didn't work, so finally i said what about bare minerals and he was like no it's not good for scars. So we tried it anyways and what do you know my scars and pigmentation was TOTALLY COVERED!! I was so happy and called my mother immediately to tell her the good news. Thank you BARE MINERALS!!!
Not what I expected!
I have light skin with neutral undertones, so finding a good concealer is hard--always too yellow or too pink. I bought this skeptically. I was told to by one of the BE workers to buy Light 1. It looks REALLY pink in the tin. I first tried applying it with my fingers, and it didn't look good. But before giving up, I tried it with a brush. Boy, was the difference amazing! It blended with my skin tone perfectly! Plus, it covered my dreaded raccoon-didn't-get-enough-sleep eyes, and my blemishes! Nice job, BareMinerals!!
just perfect for every day
Nothing I've used before covers quite like this. It blends really well. I have two ways of wearing it: either under foundation for a complete look or by itself everyday. I just cover my dark spots and I'm ready to go. I only wish it came with more than just 2 grams since I do use it so often.
