EDIT: YUCK! I don't know if it is because my skin has gotten more dry because I am on Retin A or what but this no longer works for me. It emphasizes every fine line and pore on my face. I look ten years older than I am. Now, it turns orange on me as well. My brother said "Man, you look like a tangerine!" I looked in the mirror and he was right. I checked the package and it hadn't expired, so I don't know what's up. I am not feeling this anymore at all. I've switched to Mineral Basics. Original review: It took some practice (and looking at QVC's videos on their website), but I figured out how to correctly apply it: Put some tape over most of the sifter holes, you don't need all of that product coming out. Pour less than a dime-sized amount into the top, swirl a good kabuki brush down into it (like *crush* the brush into it.) Then tap the brush against something hard so that the powder falls down into the bristles. Buff it into your face, like waxing a car. Go over again if there's not enough coverage. continued >>

I'm in my early twenties and I've tried many types of coverage but everything always seemed to aggrevate my acne more (I have combination skin...occasional hormonal breakout- little bumps). i was skeptical about bare minerals at first because it just sounded too good to be true (saw the infomercial) but long behold- this is probably the only thing i'll use for a long time to come. i'm already on my third round of purchase!!! the only problems i have with this product are the light coverage (too light for me) and the shifter jar that just shifts TOO much. because the minerals are slightly reflective, it does an amazing job of covering up redness but not if you have blemishes. for me, a little paula dorf concealer over the first foundation layer of minerals, however, does the trick of making my skin very natural and effortless. i highly recommend this-it's true that you can sleep with them on without breaking out!i find that using just the foundation alone washes me out a little..so definitely pair this up with the mineral blush(the colors are very soft) or your own favorite powder blush.

I've used this product for almost 2 years now, and though I'm not in love with it, its great for my sensitive skin. I had same same "shiny big pore problems" as other people, but have found away to reduce if not eliminate them. First, wash your brushes weekly. The build up on them will make you shiny.Do not buff, buff, buff as instructed. Because this makeup is a mineral, when you buff you are actually polishing the minerals and making them shine.The bisque concealer, used in the areas where my pores are large, help cover them up.I love the sun protection thiss makeup offers. I live in Fl and this works better than sunscreen and doesn't sweat off.

The foundation is just ok.It doesnt hide blemishes or spots. It's supposed to, but I heard it didn't, so i didn't expect it.It looks real natural to.The warmth is great. Gives a warm colour without looking fake.The veil is also great.Covers oily skin perfect!They are all easy to apply.The greatest thing is; i can't feel it. And thats a plus, cuz i hated to use foundation, just because of that. But no more thanks to this one.Would repurchase.

I am mostly positive but still slightly ambivalent toward this product. Here's why: 1)When applied correctly (patiently apply light layers and repeat until coverage is sufficient; make sure to knock the heck out of the brush until there's no makeup visible on it before brushing it on), it covers my moderate acne and constant red dots (post-inflammation hyperpigmentation from the zits). 2)It does feel better than liquid foundations or powders. 3)The color matches my skin better than any foundation I've found. 4)I have not had the pore-highlighting effect some women noted on this site, nor do I find that it settles into lines and cracks. So I really like the look it offers. 5)It does, however, look AWFUL on peeling skin. But that's true of any makeup. 6)The containers are a huge pain unless you put on makeup in exactly the same place every day. The travel compact sucks big time, and even when carefully sealed leaks powder all over your purse. 7)The pearlescent, transluscent effect can look like oiliness on the wrong day. 8)All of the crap they try to send you is awful, from the mineral veil to the warm highlighting junk--just get the foundation that matches your skin, one lighter, and a brush or two from Sephora, and skip the kits. 9) it's expensive. 10) It only takes a swipe with the brush (not more makeup) to touch up in the middle of the day. 11)But some days that means every two hours. 13)But it's titanium dioxide sunblock, so there you go. I'm about 80% pro BE.

I tried this WANTING to love it, but I just cannot. It made my face look weird and shiny. I also did not like the packaging. Too small and it is easy to spill. I also wonder how a POWDER can supposedly provide wonderful sun protection as the package claims. I dunno, I like Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer better.

well I am a little mixed about this product. I bought it 3 months ago. I used it all the time for the first 2 months. But then i started to notice some things. I have huge pores on my nose and the minerals just made them look bigger. My face looked great after i put everything on, but after 2 or so hours, thats when the shine and pores broke out. I use liquid foundation now, but i was reading in another post that someone uses the foundation as a powder to set the liq foundation she uses. So i think i am going to try that.

I just had a massage today and they were selling this product at the salon, so I thought I'd try out the tester first. Boy am I glad I tried it out before deciding to buy it. This stuff makes my pores look big enough to have their own zip codes. Even standing a few feet away from the mirror, all I can see is pores, pores, pores. One good thing is that it did seem to control oil, as I didn't get shiny for several hours, even without using a mattifier first. Aside from the huge pores, I did notice that my other flaws were minimized, but when I looked a little closer in the mirror, my face looked totally powdery and mask-like. No thanks, I'll stick with liquid foundation. (I can't say whether I was wearing too much of the product or not, as one of the makeup artists applied the product for me.)

i absolutely love this product! i have tried every foundation over the years from drugstore brands to super expensive ones. this is by far the best. the reason why some people may think it looks "powdery" on their face is because they're using WAY too much. only a little is necessary and you're face looks flawless. enough said, this will be the foundation i use for a long time.
