I'm not gonna lie, I really love this stuff. I've been trying out various mineral foundations from drugstore to this to bareMinerals. Here's my conclusion: The more expensive ones, like this, are creamier in texture, while the drugstore ones, including Maybelline, Cover Girl, and Revlon, are pasty and hard to get good coverage. However, I won't bag on L'Oreal's because it's pretty close to being higher end in quality. I ordered the Light Starter Kit from Sheer Cover. Here's a breakdown of what I like and don't:Pros:Concealer - Loved it! Very creamy in texture and covers flawlessly.Foundation - Loved it! Excellent color match for me, creamy in texture, and provides good coverage, provides a good, but not over the top luminosity.DVD - Really good at showing some techniques for applying the makeup.Color Palette - Beautiful colors!Concealer Brush - Really good quality and applies the concealer and the foundation in concentrated amounts flawlessly.Cons:Foundation Brush - Not bad quality, but didn't apply the minerals with enough coverage for me. Had to use my bareMinerals brushes.Blending Brush - Not bad quality, but don't really have a use for it.On-the-Go Brush - Not bad quality, but don't really have a use for it.Six Days Bronzer - Not really into taking it off a piece of paper, plus I don't really like bronzers, so I probably won't use it.Cleanser - I'm afraid to try it due to my skin being so sensitive, and probably won't. UPDATE: Tried it and didn't like it. Might be ok for someone with normal-oily skin, but certainly not someone with dry.Moisturizer - I'm afraid to try it due to my skin being so sensitive, and probably won't.None of the cons are enough to make me not repurchase, I just won't get these things in my kit next time.Products that didn't come in the kit:Kabuki Brush - Hated this, weird texture and cheap.Finishing Powder - Excellent, finley milled texture, not pasty looking, has a slight sheen to it.Eye Collection - Loved the colors, but I wish they were more...shiny? They are a little pasty looking.Refreshing Mist - Loved it, does what it says it will do. Refresh and set makeup and hydrates skin.UPDATE: Absolutely adore this stuff. Colors match perfectly. I love the way it applies - you really do need less with this. Never looks pasty, but doesn't make me look too shiny either. I don't have to use any glow or shimmer products with this, because it provides the exactly amount of dewiness that I want.

it's not a bad product. with the right moisterizer it looks good and is not irritating to the skin. it's just that there are other products like this with a better price and non irritating. the concealer, however makes blemishes look worse than it actually is.

There is something about middle of the night infomercials that really steal your common sense. I ordered this stuff, and then checked online. I presently use PUR minerals, and love it. I have no idea why I thought I needed to try this, but I did. Not a good idea. The colour was terrible (I ordered light) and it was messy. Not only that, but with PUR minerals, you do not need to use a concealer...just a little more product and coverage is great. The cleanser was irritating, and the moisturizer didn't do a thing for me. The minerals went on far too sheerly with a scratchy brush. The colour compact "freebie" was pretty useless too. I must say, though, that the packaging was very pretty, organza bag and all. I just wish they would have had the same standards for product quality that they did for packaging! I really hope that I don't have any problems with the return, because it is going back in the mail tomorrow! Save your money, ladies, and give PUR minerals a try. I really do love that stuff, and will never stray from it again…till the next bout of flu catches me infront of the boob tube in a coma…..wanting to believe, wanting to believe….

I found that this stuff covers better than Bare Minerals and matches my skin tone to a T, but it isnt very easy to get a hold of as you cant buy it in stores and I dont want to order anything off of their website after hearing the HORROR stories about the sales people sending you more make up than you can possibly use in 3 months time and charging your account EVEN AFTER you cancel. So once Ive used up what I already have, Im done. Love the color match, love the way it feels on my face, doesnt break me out, feels weightless and gives an airbrushed look...but not conveniant - and for those that are not bothered by that: go for it, but for me, conveniance is everything! I pass on this.

I like Sheer Cover. I have eczema flares on my skin, so I don't wear makeup (like, 90% of the time in the winter).I really like it - I feel like I have a little more polish than I do without any makeup. I think if you are used to regular foundation, you would not like this at all, as it is a very natural, light look. I don't know about staying power, because I never touch up makeup. I think its a good option for people who don't like/use foundation.The brushes aren't the softest, but I also don't have the problem where peices of the brush come off on my skin and I dont' know it, so I walk around all day with a bristle on my face . . .Also, I like this better than Bare Minerals, which I ordered when it was first out on infomercials years and years ago. I think it "sits" nicer on dry skin. I'm looking forward to ordering the pressed powder version of this, which Paula Begon (Sp?) gave good reviews, and I think will be easier to carry around. Good luck!EDIT: This irritated my skin so I stopped using it.

I have picky skin, so I have been moving more and more towards "natural" make-ups. I've used other mineral make-ups and have been quite successful. This, however, was horrible. The first day I used it, my skin was happy, but it just went down-hill from there.Here's a Con list:1. Wears off quickly (so much for lasting all day)1.5 The gloss caused my lips to peel and crack horribly.2. Is foundation is very shimmery, so it makes my skin look oily when it isn't.3. ACNE!!! Oh my goodness! After the first day, my skin went crazy! I earned many blackheads and cystics. Absolutley horrible!I called the company and stopped my membership. The said that I would be getting a refund to my card in 3-5 days. I'll let you know if anything goes wrong.

My "dream" of the perfect skincare and makeup regime is something that's quick, easy to do, feels lightweight on my skin, non-irritating, makes my skin look good and has anti-aging properties. I saw the infomercial for Sheer Cover and decided to give this product a try. I used this product for 3 months. At first, it was heaven! It looked like my "dream" was finally becoming a reality. The Bisque MMU seemed to match my skin perfectly. My skin looked great and life was fine. By the end of the 3rd month, the MMU didn't seem to work as nicely. The cleanser, toner, and concealer (which I love and still use) still worked great but the MMU started to look "tired" after 8 hours of wear. I was under the impression that makeup was supposed to last us from morning til night but the Sheer Cover MMU started fading, cracking, etc. by 5pm :-(. No amount of touch ups after 5pm would "refresh" my makeup. Not even the refreshing mist worked to revive the makeup. To my surprised, the moisturizer also didn't moisturize that well anymore (dry patches here and there appeared after 8hrs). When I looked at my make-uped skin in a magnified mirror, instead of seeing pores, I saw miniature "cracks" (like in the desert!!!). Now, as a dry skin type, that's horrible to see. Also, I expected the foundation brush to be larger (like a fluff brush) and it is rough on the skin. I had to wash it with a shampoo and conditioner and air dry it just to soften it.I was so disappointed :-(. I canceled my membership in late Nov. Then there was an unusual charge of $34 on my account in Dec. My $85 re-order which arrived in Dec. and I immediately returned (btw, I strongly recommend you use registered USPS mail when returning orders) was charged in Dec and was credited back to me in Jan. But that "unusual" $34 charge was still unexplained. I called customer service on Jan. 11 and they didn't know what that charge was for either. I was promised a credit for that amount within "two to three business days". [UPDATE: I did get my $34 refund after 3 business days.]Here are some important tips: 1) When returning orders, make sure you use some kind of service which will allow you to track the shipment. 2) If canceling your membership, jot down the date of your cancellation and monitor your account for any unusual charges from Sheer Cover.The only reasons I gave this product 2 lippies are that I love the concealer, I love the color pallette, I love all the brushes (except for the foundation brush), and I love the travel brush. I put my DHC transparent finishing powder in this travel brush.UPDATE: So, my friend (has oily skin) decided to try this product. After just 2 days of using this product, she decided it was NOT for her. She was extremely disappointed. It did not work well on her oily skin. The coverage was minimal and she was shiny in her T-zone by mid-morning. By afternoon, she looked like she had no makeup at all. But she loved the concealer though. It definitely lived up to its rep. Is it possible to buy just the concealer without being a SheerCover member?

At first I loved this product. I bought the light to medium kit, and found that the buff matched perfectly. My skin looked great, and the MMU covered my rosacea.However, after using this for about six months, I felt my skin texture had gotten much rougher, my rosacea seemed worse, and then I read that some MMUs can cause micro-tears in your skin. So that's the end of Sheer Cover for me!I do like the concealer that comes with the product, but hate the brush (it's rough too). My recommendation, if you want to try this, would be to buy a kit at Bed Bath & Beyond, since you can use a 20% off coupon and return it if you don't like it.
