I gave this foundation a chance. I've been using BE for years, but I just can't do minerals in the wintertime anymore. I picked up a bottle in the New Ivory shade from Target. For shade reference; I initially was using BE's Fairly Light until they came out with Golden Fair (a much better match for my fair skin with warm undertones). After my long sabbatical from liquids (I'm not counting Josie Maran's foundation, that stuff goes on like tinted moisturizer), I had to reteach myself how to apply foundation. My initial attempt was a failure. I used Tarte's Brightening Primer underneath & it made the foundation impossible to blend. So I removed it with a baby wipe & started over primer-free. My second attempt was a success. I got a nice satin finish with a medium coverage.I could probably go a shade lighter, but the foundation doesn't oxidize & using the darkest shade of foundation you can go to actually helps to camouflage sun damage more effectively. After using minerals for so long, I can feel this on my skin, but it's a nice feeling. The formula seems to release moisture as you wear it, a very nice feeling in the winter. It's the happiest I've been with a foundation for quite some time. I hope the love affair lasts :)
