      I use the BB cream mixed with a little moisturizer as it a little thick - this works well and provides nice coverage. Finish with the poweder and it creates a flawless matte finish.

        Great long lasting coverage. The clear base is not needed. It makes the make up break down quickly on my skin.

              I really do not care for any mineral powders or BB creams. They just dont cover well enough for me and I feel like they are for women who have close to flawless skin lol. They take forever to put on and I just don't like them. THEN... I was approached with this kit. I actually like this kit. It still wouldnt replace my liquid foundation that has buildable coverage... but its nice. It looks nice, it feels nice, and it has a cute glow to it. It does take a little bit to put on, but maybe thats because I am remedial with powder/mineral makeup. The price is a little high but I guess you get what you pay for. I have tried BareMinerals and this stuff makes that look like a dollar store brand. This is REALLY good stuff if you like mineral makeup and a BB cream on steroids.

                Love it. I bought the foundation knowing I was working a trade show and needed something to last. I put it on in the morning and wore only needing to apply lipstick through out the day. I did think it was a bit pricey however would use it again.

                  I wanted to love this but it caused the worse breakout I've ever had! The sales girl acted like it was the best of the best and I was highly disappointed. The price is ridiculous considering you onky get a super tiny container. My search for a great bb cream continues....

                        A:

                        We recommend testing the BB Cream and Halo Hydrating Perfecting Powder at your nearest ULTA store to find the best match: http://www.ulta.com/ulta/stores/storelocator.jsp

                        These products are suitable for all skin types including sensitive, acne prone skin. For those with rosacea, we recommend spot testing the products on an inconspicuous area of your skin to ensure you experience no irritation before applying as directed.

                        BB Cream does feature a built-in primer. Use alone, or apply over Photo Finish Foundation Primer - it's up to you!
