Correcting Concealer Broad Spectrum SPF 20 - null
I have never liked the Bisque concealer. It never laid well on my face and I was way too pale to use it. I LOVE this concealer. It is creamy and it doesn't take much to cover. I recommend that you use the Max Coverage Concealer Brush instead of your fingers in the pot (it's more sanitary), and then blending with your ring finger. It drys almost instantly and then you follow with your favorite foundation (Bare Minerals of course!!!). Totally a great product and I expect the pot to last a few months. Good job BE!! =D
Wish there were more shades
I do love this concealer, although I wish more shades were offered. I was matched in my local BM boutique as a Light 2, but I feel it has too much of a yellow undertone for my face. I tried a friend's Light 1 and that was not right for my face either. The concealer itself is good and the READY foundation can hide pretty well the off-coloring, but I wouldn't want to use this alone without foundation. Love the product, just wish there were more options.
I do not look like a zombie any more! I have always used a product called Time Balm, and this concealer has definitely replaced it! Since I always have plan B' s I may keep some Time Balm to go over this concealer, for those insomnia days when I do not sleep for FOREVER. A great buy!!
IN LOVE with this product!
I have never worn much makeup (or known how to wear it) but recently discovered how wonderful Bare Minerals is and this concealer is my new obsession. I am so impressed with how this product blends into the foundation for a fresh, youthful look. For early mornings and late nights this is a great natural, fresh look and I highly recommend checking it out!
I recently bought this concealer and I have to say that I am so happy that I did. It covers everything perfectly and it is now a big part of my daily routine. Once I found the right shade, it matches my skin tone beautifully. It is really easy to apply and I now prefer it over the powder concealer that BM sells, but that is mostly due to the level of coverage I get. I like a thicker concealer and this is my favorite. I'm so happy that I ended up buying this product!
Good if you don't NEED concealer (ironic)
This was purchased after hmmm'ing and haw'ing over it for a while as I haven't ever tried the brand's concealer before. But after reading the glowing reviews I caved.
I have tried everything from drugstore to high end concealer, and this falls very short of it's claims and price tag.
I will say that it's very lightweight, creamy, easily blended; however that's where the accolades stop. It's very VERY lightweight - as in sheer - as in would be an excellent concealer for those who really don't NEED concealer.
I pride myself #finally after many years# on usually needing only a bit of makeup with the occasional hormonal spots that pop up, and age appropriate dark circles... I am not a 15 year old who needs the coverage of a "studio fix" type concealer or anything of the like... However this concealer failed to cover even my menial dark circles well, and also my small pigmentation/scar spots. I actually had to go over them with another brand concealer afterwards.
To say this feels lightweight is an understatement, but if that is the type of concealer you're in search of then by all means purchase this. But if you actually need concealer that conceals (what a concept eh?) then look elsewhere.
Again, Im sure other people's views on this are going to be different; but my experience with it is that it did not conceal, and I had to use another brand concealer on top of it for even the smallest of dark spots. Its getting returned.
Not for oily skin
It covers good but it gets too cakey for my oily/combination skin. I think the shades are very complimentary to the foundations but it starts to give frown lines and gets cakey after a while. I returned it after 3 days. However, I think it would be good for people whom have good skin with minor blemishes.
I have VERY dark circles under my eyes due to allergies. I feel as though I have tried every reasonably priced concealer made. Nothing worked for me until this one. I tried this concealer because I use the foundation and LOVE it. It applied easily and blended well. I tried it with foundation and without. It did not provide full coverage but it did lighten the area without looking dry, ashy or obvious. I was so excited that I had found this little miracle. Unfortunately, within minutes my eyes started to water and my upper and lower lids began to itch and become inflamed. The SPF is my enemy. I am so disappointed. Please make a line without SPF for those of us that love BE and don't want to use anything else.
I always used the powdered concealer from BE. It has always covered well, except for a few dark spots I have. But, this concealer not only covers them, it covers everything else! I'm over four months pregnant, and my acne has flared up. I was embarassed to go out in public, but now I fel confident with this concealer. I'm also quite happy with the shade of the concealer as well. I use BE's LIGHT foundation and I got this concealer in LIGHT 2. The concealer is also supposed to correct the dark spots! Thank you, BE!
The best concealer ever!
I am over 55 and have needed concealer for one reason or a other since I was 10. This is the best concealer I have ever found and that's saying something! It is silky, glides on beautifully, covers well and lasts. It is worth every single penny. I will never switch. Love this product and highly recommend!
This BE product is one of their best!
After trying so many concealers over the years, I have finally found THE one! It covers my dark circles without accentuating the wrinkles. Most concealers you have to choose between having dark circles OR accentuated lines, but not BE correcting concealer. Love it!!
New to concealer, but LOVE what it does. I am very light complected, Using a concealer brush, use 1 side to apply & other side to blend in completely. I found also using "we'll rested" covers & brightens your eye area.
Works Great if Used Right!
I tried using this product multiple times, trying to get the best coverage possible. The best way to get great coverage would be to get a lot of the product onto the maximum coverage concealer brush, and then blend the product into the skin with your finger. This will help the concealer look the most natural on your skin.
Works like a charm!
I have tried many (almost all) concealer's on the market and this one is by far the BEST!! Just a few dabs onto a blemish/dark circles and it instantly disappears. It is also very easy to blend into your skin tone so you can't even tell you are using it. I also have started using this in conjunction with the neutralizing prime time face primer. The two together is AMAZING!!!
I had read every review of this product before purchasing and even now I struggle with how many stars to give.
PROS: Great coverage! Hides the dark circles under my eyes like a dream. I didn't know what I was missing until I started to use this. Now that I have something to hide the circles my whole face looks brighter and more natural. It goes on flawlessly with the Maximum Coverage Concealer Brush. Does what it was intended to do and I'm more than satisfied with that!
CONS: Yes, it does give off a cakey look after a while but it doesn't bother me enough to not use it. Unless you are face-to-face with another person, you will be the only one to notice it. I had started to use it on other spots on my face but quickly decided to keep it just for my eyes. Even though the container is small it will still last me a long time!
Like this product and will definitely buy again!
I love this concealer! Using the max coverage concealer brush, I can apply just the right amount to blemishes, slightly red areas, and wind up with a perfect canvas for BE foundation. It's creamy, yet not heavy. I've found that this works best when applied to just moisturized skin, blend, and wait a minute or two before buffing in my BE matte foundation, proceed with the rest of BE makeup and topping with BE hydrating mineral veil. The only time it is cakey at the end of the day is when I have a particularly troublesome blemish that may be rather dry. Will definitely continue to use the Correcting Concealer; with very fair skin, I've been color matched to use Light 1, and it's perfect for me.
Bare Escentuals has done it again!
I admit, I've gone on to try other cosmetic brands after years of using BE, but I am continually disappointed with what I find and end up coming back! There's just nothing like the BE concealers. NOTHING! And now with the READY SPF 20 Correcting Concealer, I am NEVER going to try anything else! Just like with the Bisque Concealer, it's the only thing that really, truly conceals without looking fake or nasty! It literally melts into your skin. Love, love, LOVE it! PLEASE MAKE A LARGE SIZE, PLEASE!!!!
Just Not Like Bisque
I love the Bisque concealer and purchased this product as a replacement. Overall, the tone matched my skin pretty perfectly, and I was impressed by the seamless coverage and ease of use. I was sold by the promise of imperfecton-lightening. I'm in my 20s and have combination/acne-prone skin, and it really covered everything I wanted it to!
BUT, it did not last! The product caked and flaked throughout the day, leaving me with fine lines that make me look much older than I am. It really looks gross by the end of the day. I will not be purchasing this product again.
Not what I imagined it would be...
I am an avid Bisque user for concealing blemishes and there was this one time where I ran out of it and needed it ASAP. Ulta, Macy's, and Sephora were sold out of Bisque, so I decided to try out this creamy concealer. I thought that it was going to be even better than the bisque since it was creamy/wet. I was wrong. I don't know if I was given the wrong color (I have very Fair skin), but I was given the Light 2, I believe it was, to try and it looked horrible under my foundation. It barely covered any blemishes. And when it did, by the end of the day, it was making creases on my face - even with Bare Minerals Face Primer on. Don't get me wrong, it looked wonderful under my eyes - but that isn't why I use concealer. So, sad to say I wasted money on this. I am going straight back to Bisque and buying a couple on the website to have them as back ups for when I run out randomly.
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.
Best Concealer Ever
Until now, I haven't used concealers because I thought they just brought attention to my problem areas. This concealer is smooth and blends really well. I use it for redness, blemishes, sunspots and uneven skin tone. After putting on the original foundation, you can't tell I have anything on. It just looks like I have fantastic skin! I always get compliments on my skin's appearance when I wear my Bare Minerals.
