Rated 1 out of 5 by Fibrogurl 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.

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.
Rated 2 out of 5 by missye SOOOO UPSET
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.
Rated 4 out of 5 by BmoreNatural 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.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Isargent 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.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Sunocean 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.
Rated 4 out of 5 by BmineralsAddict 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!
Rated 4 out of 5 by lilqueenzmum 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 :)
Rated 4 out of 5 by azooeydejesusgirl 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!

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.
Rated 5 out of 5 by FLBeachBlonde Great product!
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!
Rated 2 out of 5 by PAHoney fair beware
I have the lightest shade available and it's still too dark for me!? Now I'm not super pale, but still fair...love the coverage but the shade needs to be lighten! I would buy this product if they made it in lighter shades.
Rated 2 out of 5 by shellbell12 Not for fair skin
I am light skinned, but there are certainly people who are white than me walking around - I don't understand how so many make up companies have concealers that just don't work for fair skin. I have this concealer in Bisque, the lightest shade, and it is far too dark - it might work in the summer when I'm tan, but I'm going to have to wait about 9 months to find out. The correcting concealer is close, but I think has the wrong undertones for my skin, so I was hopeful that this concealer could work as an alternative.
In my low rating, am not saying the product itself is bad, but I don't really have the opportunity to find out.
Rated 4 out of 5 by azulchica My new go-to concealer!
I love how lightweight this concealer feels. I'm pleased with how it covers up my acne. It's not perfect, but then again, nothing is. Also, the shade fits is great - really, really close to my natural shade. I'm really happy with it and I would definitely recommend it!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Blissful Best concealer I've ever used!
In the past, I have used pencil concealers which caked or eventually wore off. This concealer, however, is perfect! It is so light yet it covers my blemishes, dark circles, and red spots perfectly! If I have a particularly troublesome spot I can just apply a little more concealer. Perfect coverage everytime!
Rated 5 out of 5 by lilcrow Transformative!!
I've been using Bare Escentuals for approx. 7 years. This is THE product I absolutely cannot live without. I am 65 years old and as I've aged, I have red spots, broken capillaries, brown spots, enlarged pores, dark under-eye circles, some old scars and wrinkles. Truly awful. The Bisque concealer actually ERASES all of it and gives me a smooth and even 'canvas' on which to work. A little Bare Minerals foundation in Light, a teeny bit of Warmth for blush, a light dusting of Mineral Veil, and I'm done. A bit of eye shadow and mascara and the transformation is complete. None of this would be possible or pretty without the Bisque Concealer evening out the skintones. This concealer works on red spots, brown spots, capillaries, racoon eyes, everything! This product is consistent over the years, works beautifully, and I cannot recommend it enough. It also lasts all day and does not come off. Imagine!! A product that does exactly what it says it will do, that retains its' high quality over the years, and at a decent price. What more could one ask for? This is one product that truly works and I highly recommend it. You'll be happily amazed.
Rated 3 out of 5 by SarahDW93 Decent
I like the consistency of this product, and I like how well it covers. However, I bought the lightest shade and it was TOO DARK. I could MAYBE wear it when I'm at my tannest in summer, but right now, I'm in Denmark and I'm not getting much sun, so I've already paled enough to not be able to wear this for the rest of the season.
Rated 5 out of 5 by siren4song My favorite product
This is the only thing I use on my face. I don't need to use much. The reason I use it is because of the way it reflects light. The foundation is too flat and it looks terrible on me. I wish I could buy this in a larger container. I have to buy 2 or 3 at a time.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Kim1960 I.d. Multi-tasking Bisque is a must have concealer
I have used this concealer from I.d. Bare Escentuals for 8 years. I have fair skin and the color Bisque is by far the best concealer match for covering under eye, uneven skin tone, and minor breakout activity. I highly recommend this and never leave home without it.
Rated 5 out of 5 by NYCNewbie A powder concealer for real? Yes and it is good!
This version of BE's concealer is really good. It stays on. If you aren't careful, you will find bright spots on your face where you'd applied it. But I have since learned to apply the concealer after I have put on a thin layer of mineral veil and to use the larger concealer brush. The mineral veil makes it easy to spread the concealer.
I still have my (two shades of) BE cream concealer, but, maybe because it is summer now, I can't imagine substituting this one with the cream concealer.
I have light-to-medium colored skin (and use Ready Golden Medium (and Light in the Original), and Summer Bisque is more than light enough for me. I believe there is a lighter version of this concealer, but if that is too dark, then maybe this line doesn't work for you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Moosh The only makeup I can't do without
I have the starter kit, but the only item I've replaced in four years is this. I am Puerto Rican / Italian with an olive complexion. Which has been turning red as I get older.
I never wore makeup because the one thing I could always count on was a blemish free, olive complexion that tanned fabulously in the summer and glowed in the winter...and then I turned 38. I started getting these little red bumps around my eyes and mouth (BTW, this condition is called perioral dermatitis--after three years my doctor prescribed Metronidazole Gel and it went away in two weeks, but I digress). At 40 I started noticing that my nose would turn bright red at times and I could see capillaries on my face.
This stuff works amazing for me. After I started using it my friends were like "what have you been doing? Your skin looks so great." I use the big blush brush over my nose, and spot brush if I have a blemish. I only wish they had it in a compact so I could keep it in my pocket. I really love this stuff.
That said, they do need to make lighter shades. I use the bisque and my skin is medium toned.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Victoria Summer Bisque Concealer
I was skeptical about trying this. I have dark spots just below my cheeks and dark circles under my eyes and some acne scars. I really didn't think this would cover at all. I thought it might do the same thing that all the other products did, like get into my crows feet and little lines and actually "enhance" what I was trying to cover, but BE did it again! I love this concealer!! I use it by it's self sometimes if I'm in a rush and it works!! Hope you never discontinue this, it's amazing to be sure!! Thanks!
Rated 4 out of 5 by maychel Great for covering RED imperfections!
Before I bought this concealer, I debated whether I wanted to get this or the Well-Rested Eye Brightener. I finally decided on this one because I read a few reviews that said that it worked for their red blemishes AND the dark circles under their eyes. Well, this is NOT the case for me. Perhaps it is the olive undertones of my skin, but this concealer makes my dark circles WORSE and brings attention to them. I work nights, so the darkness of my circles can vary quite a bit, but I've never gotten this to successfully cover them while they're at any level of dark. I've tried applying it in varying levels of heaviness, but it goes from not enough to cover/brings attention to them to way too much/caked-on/still doesn't get rid of the dark color. I'll have to break down and buy the Well-Rested Eye Brightener to take care of those!
But this product is WONDERFUL for red blemishes! It covers the broken capillary on my face flawlessly, camouflages my little red pimples perfectly, and masks any mark that is based in the red family!
Remember: THIS PRODUCT IS NOT 100% EFFECTIVE FOR DARK CIRCLES UNDER EYES.

I had purchased this online in summer bisque awhile back, and it did not really match my skin tone (I am of mixed heritage Caucasian, Asian, Spanish) . I have to use mineral makeup on my skin and ONLY mineral makeup due to harsh chemicals making my skin break out. Although the minerals keep your skin healthy, they do not offer any coverage and worst of all - they don't match certain skin tones. I went to the actual shop yesterday, and purchased bisque (the lightest), and it is still too dark. I have some acne scars that are a deep shade of red, and all this concealer does is make them even more visible as it is too orange. All the shades are either too pink or orange. It also does not blend well at all. I suggest trying the well rested concealer instead; it looks like it may actually cover if you are paler, and are looking for a simple spot treatment. However, if you have acne I suggest you just wear the mineral matte foundation and nothing else, because the concealer will just make it look worse.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Rachelle Bisque Concealer.. not a fan
I switched over to using Bare Minerals about a year and a half ago. The foundation felt amazing on my skin so I have been dying to try their concealer for my blemishes, under eye, and blood vessels that have burst. Unfortunately, I have found the concealer doesn't really cooperate as such- the only thing I can successfully cover is the small red spot where I have a burst blood vessel on my forehead. Even caked on, this concealer does not cover my dark blemish spots when they pop up. When I layer the foundation on as a means of a second concealer, this helps a little but not much more. (I use the Maximum Coverage Concealer Brush.) I was disappointed with this product and would suggest to others to consider the new creamy Correcting Concealer as it may provide better coverage (which I have not used but was considering). Alas, I will keep searching for my perfect concealer out there.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wilma Just what I've been looking for....
THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!! I have oily skin on my T-zone and redness around my nose and under eyes. I hate putting thick, cream concealers on my face...it always feels so heavy and goopy. I LOVE this concealer! It's lightweight and doesn't increase the oiliness and it covers the redness and lasts all day! Perfection.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Minamia87 Hmmm...
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.
Rated 4 out of 5 by vick47 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!
