Broad Spectrum SPF 20 Concealer - null
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".
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.
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!!!
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.
Blessing in a Little Jar
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!!
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.
My magic make up.
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!
Best Produt to Even Out Skin Color.
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.
