Q & A

Pure Radiance is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 29.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Amazing Love love love this color. Pure radiance is absolutely my favorite color by far. I love the way it looks on me and I love the way it shimmers. I can use very little during the day with the perfect slight glimmer or I can wear more at night for a brighter shine. This color makes me feel very happy.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Lots of unnecessary sparkle in this product. This product (Pure Radiance) was just way too frosty looking on my face. If I could suggest one viable change to bareMinerals, it would be to pull back a bit with the shimmer and shine. Packing a product with sparkles is not necessarily the answer to freshness, youthfulness or capturing that always coveted “healthy glow.” Using a light application still gave me a bit of an Ace Frehley vibe. Channeling KISS at work was, uh, not exactly what I was looking for, with all due respect. I returned this product, but would still recommend that others give it a try because it may very well work for you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't live without Of all the Bare Escentuals products I use (BE makes up the entirety of my makeup and skincare products, other than my sunscreen), the radiance line of face products are the ones I absolutely cannot live without. On days where I don't care much about appearances, but know I'd benefit from a little something something, I use one of the three radiance powders I have. The pure radiance is perfect for the days when I need a little warmth to my appearance or during the months where I'm a skosh darker than normal because of the sun (I use ample sunscreen, but still end up a hair tan in the summer/fall months). My skin tone has elements of olive and yellow undertones with some red (go figure/yeah I'm weird). I have medium to fair complexion. A side note: My favorite of all of the radiance products was a limited edition 'secret radiance'. I wish I could find it again. =)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So many wonderful Uses I LOVE LOVE LOVE this. I use it every day. It is one of my favorite items. I use it to highlight my cheeks. and I also use it as a base color for my eyeshadow. It is a perfect color that looks great with any other eyeshadow color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Highlighter ever! This product literally gives you a "lit from within" type of glow. It does not act like a blush (would probably work for Rose Radiance), but just highlights and illuminates your face. I love that soft, dewy, naturally luminous look and this product is essential to receive that. I use it after my foundation, but before the mineral veil, and sweep it over my cheeks, brow bones, bridge of nose, and chin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Natural Healthy Glow I just purchased Clear Radiance and am so in love with the natural healthy glow it gives my skin. And it's unbelievable how tiny an amount is necessary to achieve that look. It truly brings radiance to my skin.

Q & A

I have a fair complexion and am wanting a radiance to use as a highlight. Would the clear radiance or pure radiance be better for my skin tone?

I would like a natural looking sheen, nothing glittery that would accentuate my pores.

What shade of Radiance for Light-wearer with rosacea?

I wear Light in the winter and Golden Tan in the summer when I have a tan. I have rosacea on my cheeks, sometimes with small blotches. What shade of Radiance should I buy? I can not have one with red tones, rather a shade that neutralizes the red areas on my cheeks.
Asked by: AnniQa

Would you use the mineral veil if you choose to use the pure radiance or does one take place of the other?

I have both the mineral veil and the pure radiance and am not sure if I should use both or just one at a time.
Asked by: TGM1955
They both do about the same thing. I use the mineral veils when going out for the night because they are a little more sparkly. I would only use one or the other.

What is the best radiance for medium tone skin with a ruddy complexion or red splotches?

I have some reddish coloring on my olive skin...I would like to use Radiance but the right kind...thank you for your help!
Asked by: Ravenhare
Pure, Secret, or Bare. The golden undertones in those radiance shades will counteract the redness in your complexion.

what is the difference betwen the Radiance products and the All Over Color products?

I have med. skin with yellow skin tones and blonde hair, green eyes. I am confused.
Asked by: oldster
Radiance is an All Over Color product. It is more of an accent the Faux Tan or Warmth, but can be used as an accent al over your face. I like it both under & over my foundation for that little extra glow.

What Radiance color is best for medium skin tone with yellow undertones?

I wear golden medium foundation and want to know which Radiance shade will look the best. I have yellow undertones and medium skin, black hair. I don't really want to wear this as a blush. Any suggestions?
Asked by: Kali28
I use the 'pure', 'bare', and 'clear'. I have yellow undertones too and light to medium skin.

Pure Radiance vs Foundation

If the pure radiance is an all over color can it be substituted for the foundation? If not what's the difference?
Asked by: BrittanyC
The difference is the radiances are lighter and don't cover as well as the foundations. I either use both, with the foundation first and a light dusting of the radiance or one or the other. When I'm lazy, just running errands for the day, or just having an amazing skin day, I just use the radiance powder and it gives a nice glow and covers some imperfections beautifully. I usually use the foundation on days where I just have to look more polished up or am having a really bad skin day.
