Rated 2 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Not For the Fair Skinned
I bought my starter kit online and after a grueling two weeks, was so excited to see it in my mailbox! I open everything up and I'm excited to try it on, obviously struggling to figure out how to use it. I do everything as normal, wash, moisturize, prime, foundation, next is the moment of truth. I swipe my concealer brush into the little pot and start to cover up my dark spots and blemishes. It's slightly off color than my foundation but I figure no problem, finishing powder will fix it. I get done with my routine, hop into my car to go to work and take a glance in the mirror. Brown. My concealer is brown. I have brown spots on my face and even worse, under my eyes. Why?? Why in the world is it possible to have such a light shade of foundation yet the concealer matches not one bit? Worst of all is that I can't use any of my previous concealers because they no longer match my foundation. I love this stuff don't get me wrong, but the concealer shades make absolutely no sense to me. Can we go just a few shades lighter, Bare Escentuals, please??
Rated 5 out of 5 by Shyla A truly great concealer.
What a fabulous product the Correcting Concealer Broad Spectrum SPF 20 - Light 1 is. This is an unabashed hit! Works like a charm. It has great staying power and even application. No fuss, no muss. Love it!
Rated 5 out of 5 by baremineralsnewbie96 Amazing concealer!
I love this stuff, and so does my mother who has aging skin and redness! It works so well for both of our skin types (20 something and 50 something!). Light 2 is great for my dark circles and chin discoloration, whereas Light 1 does wonders for my acne scarring.
Rated 5 out of 5 by SmilingSunflower Works Great for Rosacea and Scars
I have light to medium skin and have terrible rosacea redness. This stuff works quite well to cover it and stays on well. It's been a real struggle for me to find something that covers it. I use it on my cheeks on any red ares or spots and then I've been using the Matte Foundation Broad Spectrum all over my face. I finish with a dusting of mineral veil. All 3 products are needed to keep the red covered since I have oily skin. If I don't use the mineral veil the redness starts showing again much sooner.
I recently bought Prime Time and Ready Foundation. Ready has fuller coverage than the other foundation I was using. I'm still perfecting using it, but it does cover even better, it just looks more like I'm wearing makeup. I think I will put on less and buff more and see if that helps. I think Ready Foundation will be better to cover the rosacea with my routine.
Rated 3 out of 5 by blonde compact falls apart
there is nothing wrong with the concealer itself, however the little compact that it comes in falls apart. I bought 2 of these in different colors and different times and within a week or so both fell apart.
frustrating trying to put a rubber band around it to hold it together.
Rated 5 out of 5 by linda123 FABULOUS MAKEUP
I love this stuff. I use it as foundation in the summer. For extra coverage, I use a brush to cover up flaws. Love Love Love
Rated 1 out of 5 by thinkingoutloud When natural makeup isn't enough (Sensitive skin beware).
I have been using Bare Minerals for years, thinking all along that it would work for my HIGHLY sensitive skin. But as I faced a particularly bad breakout I decided I needed more to conceal my acne than my normal routine, which was where the Correcting Concealer came into play. I started using it and everything was fine, it was covering my breakout (for the most part). But as a couple of weeks went by I began to notice my skin was getting worse. The worse my skin got the more Correcting Concealer I put on in hopes of covering what was quickly becoming my worst breakout ever. Finally, after weeks of frustration and my skin only getting worse I ran out of Correcting Concealer. I went to the store to buy more but they were out of stock, so I went home, in my mind relegated to bad skin with no coverup in sight. But as the days went by and I went through my previous makeup routine I slowly started to see my skin improving. After a couple of weeks my skin was looking leaps and bounds better than it had when I was using the coverup.
Finally it dawned on me, I was 110% allergic to the Correcting Concealer. Now I would recommend this product to anyone who doesn’t have sensitive skin. It should work for covering your problem spots. However, if you have sensitive skin I would avoid this product. Bare Minerals foundations may work for you, but it's likely this will not.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer great coverage
I'm not sure if this product is worth $20 for the small amount contained. Great coverage though. I'll probably re-order when I run out, I just have to use it sparingly.
Rated 5 out of 5 by FoxxyRed Amazing concealer but poor container
I use light 1 and it is the best concealer I have ever used. It has great coverage for my under eye circles, and areas where I have rosacea. The only complaint I have is the packaging. Every container I have had the plastic has broken off around the hinge and then the lid won't stay on...so frustrating! Please change the container!

I tried this concealer for the first time, i just loved it.
Very easy to use, and work great. last all day. I use warm deep loose mineral powder, and it blends so easily and quickly. Looks very natural and wears all day.
Rated 5 out of 5 by 15yearsofBE Really like this over the powder and brightener
When I switched to the liquid foundation, the sales lady suggested I get a concealer. She automatically suggested the Stroke of Light, which I realize NOW is not a concealer. I have veins on my nostrils where my glasses rest. Foundation and powder concealer tend to rub off or cake in that area. The Correcting Concealer not only masterfully covered the veins because of the high pigmentation, it also lasted a lot longer than anything else I have used in that area of my face. It really stays put! It blends beautifully and is not shiny or shimmery. It has a creamy texture, yet matte appearance. I have read some comments that it is greasy. I have combination skin and this does not feel heavy or greasy at all to me, but as always, YMMV.

The coverage is perfect and a little goes a long way! It goes well under the powder AND Bareskin foundations! I've even just used this and some tinted moisturizer (the new complexion rescue is my fave) and it looks great! Ive been using this for years and will never use anything else! <3
Rated 5 out of 5 by Chuysmom works for me
covers my redness problems, occasional acne, and lasts thru the workday. easy to blend, does not break me out. Very satisfied customer.
Rated 5 out of 5 by kbtz Excellent
Love the powdered mineral concealer. Product works great on this old face, never flaking, always giving a smooth appearance. I no longer worry about sun spots or damaged areas on my face. I am confident I appear smooth and blended to any and all.
Rated 5 out of 5 by slp1169 Concealer
I love the concealer. It is actually my favorite product. It covers the dark spots and circles under the eyes and last all day.
I also use the Matte finish and love that it takes so little to use.
Rated 2 out of 5 by LindyLou Powder version works better for me
I have always used the powder version concealer but got talked into this at the store (came in a kit w/ brush and eye brightener) and I hate it! It is greasy and doesn't cover nearly as well. And worse - it has made my face break out. So lesson learned, buy what you already use and love!
Rated 5 out of 5 by KDizzle3 Best thing EVER (no lie bro)
I saw this and looked at how small it was..looked at my face and was like, this wont last..WELL was i wrong. This Little thing goes along way! I use it mostly under eyes and in areas i feel its needed. After a minute it just feels like you placed a very light soft powder on your face. No cakey after feel, no crumbling off, feels soft and like you didnt even put make up on. I live by this Concealer. Trust me, give it a shot. It blends well and is great for dark spots, pimples, dark eyes, eyeshadow base, you name it! :) Very pleased. (also works with just about all skins)
Rated 5 out of 5 by thecarsfreak Awesome Concealer!
I previously used the powder concealer in Bisque, and was disappointed in the coverage. THIS concealer, however, is the magical end to all of my cheek/jawline red blemishes. I use the maximum coverage brush that came with my Get Started Kit, just put a little dab over scars and pat it around a little. Voila! My husband keeps commenting that my face is clearing up really well, LOL!
Rated 4 out of 5 by BethieBeth Great product, terrible packaging
This product does a great job evening tone around eyes and eliminating dark circles. I would definitely recommend it to those who want to even out their complexion and conceal blemishes, etc. I have bought this item several times and the top part of the compact always snaps off. It's particularly difficult to deal with if you have to travel with it as I end up taping it together. I wish it came in a different type of packing, and also in a larger size.

I have tried countless correcting concealers. I finally have the creamiest correcting concealer. I am bare caramel in the bareskin brightening serum foundation and deal with dark circles and hyperpigmentation, almost always dry in both areas. Tan 2 is perfect for my dark circles and Dark 2 for the hyperpigmention. What an AWESOME product!!! No more dry flaking troubled areas. Again Bare Minerals has out done themselves. THANK-YOU!!!!
Rated 5 out of 5 by annamcgee123 THIS IS SOOOOOOO AMAZING
THIS IS THE BEST CONCEALER IN THE WHOLE WIDE WORLD OMG IM SOOOO IN LOVEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I had really bad bags underneath my eyes but as soon as i put this on they disappeared. All I do is set the concealer with my banana powder and im all set.

I have oily skin and lots of acne scarring. This product evens out my skin tone as well as hides dark scars from acne. I have been searching for a product that would help my appearance as well as be gentle on my skin. This product hides beautifully and can be used over or under foundation. The color was such a perfect match. I was hesitant because I ordered it online but it works like a charm.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Kolby Bet concealer out there!!
I am a makeup junky and have tried sooo many concealers a over the years, and this is BY FAR the best one I have ever used. It covers up dark spots and blemishes COMPLETELY without leaving a cakey layer on top. I put the concealer on before my BE Matte Foundation and it works wonders. So happy!!
Rated 5 out of 5 by BreezeAAA Wonderful concealer!
I love this concealer. In the past I had never had much success with concealer but I love this one. I prefer to use the Mini Concealer Brush which came with a trial kit I bought over the Maximum Coverage Concealer Brush which I got in several other starter kits. I've never tried putting it on with my finger. The little compact is adorable too and has a great mirror inside. I like the material of these compacts/containers as they don't show the fingerprints & powders as easily as many of the larger ones in the Ready line.
Rated 5 out of 5 by BE90 LOVE IT
I got this product with the flawless complexion kit and I must say it is a MUST have. It conceals very well.
Rated 5 out of 5 by MissMartiPhreak Works Wonderful!
I am so very happy with this product! I have never been able to apply concealer without it looking awful! No matter what I spent on other concealers and no matter the brands I have used, concealer has always been a downfall for me. However, this concealer it was as easy as 1, 2, 3! I am so happy and will continue to keep this product in my makeup case! :o)
Rated 5 out of 5 by BareMineralsConvert coverage like no other
I am a 28 year old black woman with a very deep purplish birthmark under my eye. This birth mark is very similar in color and shape to a 'port-wine'stain' birth mark. My whole life I have tried every concealer under the sun to try and cover and blend in this birthmark. I decided to give Bare Minerals Dark 2 a try and the results are amazing-- the most coverage I have ever had and it blends in perfectly with my overall skin tone. On top of my concealer, I add a very light dusting of the 'skinny dip' bronzer and the result is absolutely luminous. I am definitely a Bare Minerals convert.
Rated 5 out of 5 by tracykehaunani Best concealer ever
This concealer is the best! I use it over my foundation to cover any red spots, blemishes and scars. Coverage is great and it blends with my matte foundation perfectly. I tap a little mineral veil over the concealer to set and I'm ready for the day.
Rated 5 out of 5 by SaraBear1987 Miracle concealer
I have adult acne that has only gotten worse and worse during my pregnancy. This product is my saving grace! I use it under my BE READY foundation all over my face and it completely covers all of the throbbing redness. In fact, my skin FEELS better with this product on; I don't experience the throbbing I feel with no makeup on. I love the way my face looks when I use this concealer; I feel like it almost totally covers all of my acne problems (redness completely gone, just a few of the major bumps visible, scarring completely covered). I don't know what I would do without this product - it gives me confidence to know that when people are looking at me, they aren't staring at my horrible pregnancy acne. Thank you BE for a wonderful product and the confidence to feel good about how my skin looks.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Hardy1990 Best concealer so far!
I love the versatility of this product! Not only does it work great as a concealer for blemishes and dark circles but it also can double as an on-the-go foundation or base for eyeshadows. As a woman of color I'm pleased that BE had shades to accommodate my skin tone.
One downside of this product is that if you have oily skin you definitely must set it with a good powder to keep it in place throughout the day. Other than that this product never let's me down!
