I received this initially when I purchased the whole bare minerals kit a while back and never used it. I thought it looked kind of dark for my fair complexion. Then about six months ago I was cleaning out my makeup and decided to give it a try on my eyes. I fell in love with it. It provides amazing coverage and stays on all day without caking up. I use it on my eyelids from lash to brow to cover all the capillaries that are all too visible on my pale skin. Traditional concealers always crease on my eyelids but this stays put and creates a completely smooth uniform canvas if I want to add eyeshadow to my look, but I love to use it alone most days. Everyone has something about their face they see as a flaw, and for me it was always my translucent eyelids. Not anymore!
I have been using this product since their debut and I wouldn't consider using anything else. In the past I tried some "wannabees" but there is nothing that can compare with the original. Everything thing they claim is absolute true. I may be old and fat but my skin looks marvelous thanks to Bare Escentuals Bare Minerals products. As the old saying goes, "Try it...You'll like it"!
This is a very light beige powder with a slight pink undertone. I am light, but not fair, with neutral undertones, with hazel eyes and dark blond hair. I use this powder as an eyeshadow base and sometimes as a concealer if I have dark circles. It is quite heavy and therefore offers good coverage. It is especially good if you have any discoloration on your eyelids. Using this as an eyeshadow base helps eyeshadow go on true and stay that way all day. This powder is more dense than B.M. eyeshadow so a tiny amount goes a long way. It is best applied with a small brush. Shaking the contain up and down and then tapping on a counter deposits the perfect amount of product on the lid. Because it takes such a small amount to do the job, it is actually quite economical. I have had mine for several years and have a decent amount left. I don't use it every day but rather, several times a week. This is an excellent product and one I rely on. I highly recommend this product.
