Broad Spectrum SPF 20 Concealer - null
I love it, truly do. But I have dark under eye circles and this helps it blend in but doesn't fully cover these nasty circles...I love it because it helps greatly with no harsh chemicals...I think I need something a bit stronger but nonetheless it's a great product.
Change the packaging!
I love this product, but hate the new packaging! Like the other viewers, I agree that you can't get all the product out so therefore, you have to throw some of it away! Such a waste!
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.
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
Can't Beat It!
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.
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.
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.
A Bit of Magic
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.
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".
