Concealer Broad Spectrum SPF 20 - null
I am new to Bare Minerals and I have just gotten my starter kit. I have been reading the reviews about how the color of the lightest concealer has changed without warning; it is now too dark for light skin. This concerns me because I wanted to reorder it. The other thing is that the concealer in my kit has one name but on the bill it has another. I don't know what I have and wouldn't know what to reorder. maybe one of them is the new darker color the other reviews were talking about. On the concealer it is labeled- Mineral Beige N20, matt SPF 15, foundation, (not concealer). On the bill it is called- S SPF 20 bisque, (01) V2. Is it SPF 15 or 20? Is it Mineral Beige or Bisque? Is it a foundation or a concealer? I don't care what it is called, but I do care about getting the same product IF I reorder.
Better than the cream concealer!
Definitely like the powder form better. Doesn't cake and looks light. I wasn't even aware that concealer could be in powder form until I found this product.
Formula Color Changed Without Warning, Now The Lightest Shade is Too Dark
I've been using Bisque for years. Now the color is different. I even got a replacement because I was convinced that it must have been labeled wrong. It wasn't. The second container was too dark also. I use Fairly Light foundation and the Bisque (the lightest color available in a concealer) is now too dark. It actually GIVES me dark circles under my eyes. It's darker than my foundation! So sad! Because there is no lighter option. I could try going for the very lightest foundation shade and use it as a concealer. I have the Well-Rested for eyes but it is very yellow and not a good choice for touch-ups all over the face. Photo shows my foundation color on the left, and the two samples of Bisque next to it.
WE NEED FAIR BISQUE! We are FAIR not light skinned!
Why is it that darker skin tones have multiple choices for bisque, but regular bisque, which is LIGHT is supposed to be good enough for fair skin tones‽ if I use it alone I have dark splotches all over my face because it is 2 shades darker than my skin tone. I have to buy a light cream or off white eyeshadow and make my own fair bisque which is costly and never consistent. I have used be since 2003 and have been BEGGING since 2005 for a fair version of bisque. With the plethora of shade options they've added you'd think Fair Bisque would've been one of them but no! PLEASE I know I'm not alone here and that they're are many others with Snow White skin needing thus product last year. Please give us the fair bisque we've been very patiently waiting for. Wow, Fair isn't even an option for my skin tone in the drop down menu of this form!
I've been using this since I was a freshman in high school! It's truly timeless and works great! I've only had one problem with this product and that's when the temperature are very high, it will melt right off, but even then it doesn't clog my pores! Great product overall, I recommend this to many of my friends and family!
No "fair" or even "light" available now
I last used this several years ago and the lightest shade sold ( sadly, I don't recall the name ) was perfect for me. While I have very dark red-brown hair I have the palest skin, porcelain is the term I usually hear, and not a freckle in sight. When returning here to purchase the concealer I was troubled by both the name, "Bisque" and the photo. It seemed *so* dark, but as it was the only color recommended I decided it was my faulty memory and/or my faulty screen. Not the case; I ordered 3 jars and they will be on the way back. I did try it, but even the lightest application had me looking like an orange-ish clown. With a dirty face. And too much make-up :( I'm once again on the hunt for a different brand with a shade for truly pale people. LOREAL made one I like called True Match Naturale, in 2 light shades, but I can no longer find theirs, either. I've always used just a bit of concealer and a light brushing of Mineral Veil which worked wonderfully, even at my age (64), so perhaps before I return all 3 jars I'll try mixing something and see if I can make this usable.
Pretty good concealer
This concealer goes a long way, covers well, feels silky and is non-irritating. I use the "Bisque" shade and am a "Medium" on my foundation shade. The only reason that I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is that I have used something I like better: the Correcting Concealer by Bare Minerals. I know that some people apply concealer after foundation too, but I don't want to do it twice. It seems as though a bit gets brushed away when applying your foundation, but I don't have that problem with the Correcting Concealer. Overall, it is still far better than any other brands I've ever tried.
I have dark circles and dry under eyes and have been using the correcting concealer, but throughout the day the concealer would settle into my fine lines and look really bad by the time I got home. Embarrassingly bad. I didn't think I would find anything that wouldn't settle into my lines and not irritate my under eye skin until I found this! A little goes a long way and it stays on all day! Highly recommend for under eyes!
Works well but colors are limited
Please make this in a lighter color, as others have said!
I like how this product covers and blends but unfortunately there isn't a shade light enough for me. I need a light cool tone and I have no problem finding that in the Bare Minerals foundations which I have worn for years and love, so I don't understand why they don't make this concealer in matching tones, including lighter tones. I tried the creamy concealer (Correcting Concealer) in Light 1 and while that was a little better color-wise than the lightest color in this product (which is Bisque), I couldn't wear it under my eyes because it turned into numerous fine lines/creases within an hour or two.
I've been using bisque for maybe 8 years +? and I have yet to find anything that covers as well and as light as the Bare Minerals bisque. I even remember when this was just a late night infomercial product. My skin doesn't get greasy afterwards like it does with other products. It covers for hours and leaves my skin feeling soft. I don't EVER break out when I am wearing this. I only wish it were bigger because I apply this to my whole face and run out so very easily! The Bare Minerals foundation just doesn't cut it with coverage. I recently found out I had rosacea and this is a+++.
Doubles as a Foundation
I loved this product, but the color has changed. It used to match my skin tone exactly. now it's too dark and too pink. It worked for me because I have a number of spider vein clusters on my face, and this concealer covered them well as it matched my skin tone very well.
I hope BE puts it back the way it was, I would be very happy
Love it! Doubles as foundation
I have been using Bisque for years now. I have very light skin with pink undertones but I have red blotches, freckles and a few scars. The Bisque works great at covering imperfections and I now use it as my foundation. It is lightweight and feels great. Plus the container is smaller and fits nicely in my makeup bag!
I bought this in Bisque after trying and loving the Original Foundation. I find that it does not blend well with the fair foundation. It seems much darker than the fair tone and it is quite noticable. I think it covers well, but I find using the foundation over blemishes works just the same if not better. I don't think it was worth the money and I will not repurchase again.
Broad Spectrum Concealaer
I use the Summer Bisque AFTER I put on the Matte Foundation in Medium Beige. It works wonderfully to cover all my "trouble spots." Next, I lightly blend it with the foundation brush (still with some remaining foundation on it). To finish, I use the Original Mineral Veil with SPF all over to set my makeup.
I love this product
Bisque is the most wonderful concealer I have ever used! I cannot do without it and there is no way I would ever go back to the liquid or cream makeup and concealer after using Bare Minerals. I have used this product for about 13-14 years.
This is a great product!
I wear the lightest foundation you have. It looks a little paler than my skin, which is shocking cause I wear pale ivory in other brands. I almost took the pale foundation back, when I got the idea of using the Bisque on top of my foundation to give me a pinker look. I LOVE THE LOOK! The Bisque over my foundation saved the day! That's the benefit of being able to mix various powders.
Covers all my red spots!
As a sufferer of adult acne I have tried a lot of different strategies for curing/covering it up. This concealer when used with the concealer brush is amazing! Never thought my red areas could be covered so well by a powder, but it works! I use it under my eyes too, which tend to be dark after being up with my baby. This concealer does not fall into the fine lines and is nice and light. Plus the SPF is an added bonus.
I love that this concealer is not cakey, but is more light and fresh with coverage
This didnt work for me
I decided to try this powder instead of the ready made concealer and wow there is a difference. This powder did not conceal anything for me at all. I tried to even add some on top of my foundation to see if it would help but it didn't so i ended up using the ready made creamy concealer from bm that i had been using. Just didn't work for me.
Makes Me Look Ten Years Younger!
This is a great concealer that covers with a lightweight, creamy consistency. It is my new favorite makeup product that really covers my dark circles beautifully. I use to not wear concealer, but now I won't leave the house without putting it on! I acutually love all of the Bare Minerals concealers and use them for different reasons. But this one, is my every day go to concealer. For reference, I am Medium Beige and I wear Summer Bisque and love the color! I will repurchase for sure.
I am REALLY REALLY upset with bare minerals….
I have used this concealer in BISQUE for almost 3 years - i swear the shade was made for me, and it has the BEST coverage ever!! I can't wear liquid/cream concealers cause it gathers under my eyes and creates a line.
SO the reason I am SO upset is because bare minerals CHANGED BISQUE - it is AT LEAST 3 shades darker and redder…. and I am not even the most pale person ever - so I just don't understand why they would change it - I put the new bisque next to my old one to compare and it is a HUGE difference… I am honestly so so disappointed…
ugh. since I ran out of the old bisque my makeup hasn't looked near as good - it was honestly my favourite makeup ever.
I am now using SUMMER BISQUE - but it just isn't the same - and doesn't brighten under my eyes, nor does it correct my complexion near as good.
I tried "well rested" for under my eyes and it just didn't offer the proper coverage and it has sparkles in it - EW.
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE bare minerals bring back the OLD bisque - for me and all the other white girls in the world… I Will buy a million pots of it !!!!
This amazing concealer even covers the red streaks caused by rosacea, without appearing heavy or caked on the face.
Excellent Though You May End Up with a Mess!
Love this product. It goes on very nicely. To cover under eye circles I first use BE's correcting concealer then the bisque and it does wonders. My only gripe is if I travel with the bisque, I get a mess as it leaks out of the container. Wish we had the ability to open/close the tiny BE round containers.
Use for coverage of vein on eyelid (summer bisque)
I have a very dilated bluish blood vessel on my eyelid. The bisque totally hides it. I use it both as a concealer and eyeshadow base. It covered bluish vein completely, where as, the foundation and well rested only lighten it.
Grat product for acne scars
I have olive tone skin, so when I get an acne (which is often), it takes a while for it to clear up. Summer Bisque is my favorite to help me hide my imperfections and also for dark circles. It works great, and looks so natural. I highly recommend. I use a lot of acne medication and therefore at times my skin tends to be very red. This really helps tone it down and once I put on the foundation, it looks normal and no redness to my skin. I love this product and a little goes a long way! Definitely great for acne-prone skin.
Best concealer i've tried
I live by this concealer. When I discover that i'm running low, I immediately reorder! The concealer usually lasts me about 4 months. I use it daily sometimes twice a day. I have problems with redness and acne and it covers great! Also very good at covering dark circles. My only problem is I have to apply under and over my foundation. By far my favorite concealer!
I bought this concealer and it came with the full coverage brush. I was leery due to I have dark circles. I am really liking this concealer. It covers just right and it so easy to use. I apply it in a triangle shape under my eye and then apply my foundation. I am not old but not young so I'm in the process of trying to find products that dont make me look like i'm trying to hard to be young but then again do not want to look like a frump. I would recommend this concealer :)
Broad Spectrum Concealer (Bisque)
I have always needed to use creamy concealers (such as the Correcting Concealer) because although I have extremely dark circles (thanks to my family genes), I also have very loose skin/wrinkles under my eyes (at 23!) the powder concealers only accentuated that fact (which is why it has 4 stars instead of 5 - not the best for covering wrinkles!) I usually use it under my eyes after I use the Corrective Concealer.
However, this concealer is fantastic at concealing blemishes, dark spots, and redness! it feels so light, but covers really well. website says to use beforehand, but I usually use it after foundation (to cover what the foundation missed), with a quick swipe after the concealer to blend it seamlessly, and it works for me! You'll have to see which works best for you, before foundation or after.
Overall, it's a miracle concealer - you won't believe it until you try it.
Tip: It's all in the brush! Make sure you experiment with different brushes to find the one that blends/conceals the best - still looking for mine!
NOT FOR FAIR SKIN
I'm a bareminerals girl. I needed a concealer and thought this would work. The results were that it was too dark. I'm fair...PLEASE make this in a fair tone.
I used to try to avoid the extra cost of a concealer by just using the loose foundation under my eyes. Once I caved and purchased this product, wow, huge difference! I'm happy I tried this, it's a great product and I will continue to purchase it!
