I like the product as it is very natural and covers redness on my face. It is very easy and quick to use.
I love this stuff, I bought these on QVC along with alot more of theyre products and it covers up soo much, it take a time or 2 to get a hang of it but i love it
I have developed somewhat of a love-hate relationship with this stuff. I definitely HATE liquid foundation and when wearing BE it does not feel like I have anything on. It has taken practice for me to get the right application of this and I'm still working on that. Somedays it look great and I get compliments but other days it makes my pores look HUGE and is shiny. And some days it looks great outside in natural light but awful under flurescent light.
It is much better to start with a little bit of the powder and start with forehead, chin and then apply to cheeks and then lastly areas with more noticeable pores and keep buffing. The mineral veil is a necessity. I apply a tiny bit before applying the foundation to areas that have larger pores and then again apply all over after the foundation has "set". Although the color selection is somewhat limited I bought samples from ebay, about $3-4 each and have experimented. When I used to buy liquid I was a light ivory shade but since I have some redness on my cheeks and chin I have found that a combo of the fairly light 1.2 and fair 1 works best to cover the redness. Overall the coverage is good for minor imperfections and redness but it does not cover scars and freckles perfectly as the infomercial claims.
I am curious to see how this will do as my skin gets drier this winter. It is essential for me to moisturize before applying this or else it accentuates any dry spots that I have.
As many people have pointed out this is very messy but worth it to me to not have to wear liquid or another powder that just sits on top of my face. I can't say this is my HG but I'm not giving up on BE yet. If you're thinking about trying it I recommend either QVC, they have a good try-me kit and you can always return it if it doesn't work for you or also try e-bay.
I can't say enough about this product. Love it!!!
Thank god I tried this stuff in Ulta before I bought it(which I actually didn't). I've seen the infomercial & thought "Neato!" & planned to go buy some. I tried the light & medium shades on my hand, and liked the texture a lot. But as soon as I got outside & looked at my hand, I noticed a huge bruise where I didnt have one a few minutes ago. Oh wait- my hand wasnt bruised, the discoloration was where I had tested the makeup. I cannot imagine how horrid it would have looked all over my face. The colors are a joke- they say the light kit will work on porcelain skin, but both colors in that kit are tan! Just another bait & switch, waste of money, gimmicky product that you will regret buying.
I love BE Mineral Veil. I have oily skin, so I dust this on BEFORE I use my Mac Studiofix, and I find that it keeps oil away longer than with Studiofix alone. Don't need blotters or anything! Just like other loose powders, it can get a little messy, but ov
I really like the idea of this product (powder foundations), but unfortunately, I found that it just is not compatible with my oily skin. After a couple hours, it's just kind of floating on top of the oil on my face. I think that it would work well for someone with normal to dry skin though.
I agree with the previous reviews that this is messy but the scariest thing about this foundation is that the moment I applied it to my face with a fluffy brush, these fine wrinkles right under my eyes (THAT I NEVER EVER KNEW WERE THERE) were extremely prominent. I have never noticed these wrinkles before in my life until I tried this. My first reaction was extreme surprise and then now I just feel like reality hit me and I will age like everybody else. CRAP! . =0( Well after I blended it into my skin quite a bit more, the wrinkles were less scary but then I came to realize that this jar it comes in is awfully small. I recieved it in a swap so I don't know the exact cost of it but after the things I swapped away in return for this I can't help but feel a bit jipped. Oh well. Overall I am probably never going to buy this with my own money since it is the very first product in all 25 years of my life to let me know that I will become old one day. UPDATE: SO I broke down and gave BE another heck of a try. I bought 2 starter kits in my winter & summer shades & a large tub of just the medium beige powder. After giving this a decent whirl I still come to the same conclusion that it isnt for me. Not enough coverage, overpriced, a pain in the arse to apply..just....blah....so after all that money spent I bequeathed it all to my poor sister who is in college. I think she likes it ok. Just not for me.
The results of BE makeup is beautiful but it's not user-friendly. Time consuming to apply and easy to spill. I have mixed feelings on this kind of makeup.
TOTAL RAVE!!! I first started using this a few months ago and I didn't think it would work for me. At the time, I didn't realize that I needed to use the Mineral Veil with it. Now that I have incorporated the Mineral Veil into my routine, this makeup makes my skin look flawless! My pores are hardly noticable and my skin has a glow to it. I'm also happy to say that I haven't had a breakout in months! The containers really suck because they are so messy but whatever! It's worth it to have skin like this! This is now my Holy Grail foundation!!!
