    I like the coverage but it takes getting use to in the applying process. I would really like to try their new liq with special brush but it is a little to prices for me. Maybe if it goes on sale, since Ulta coupons can not be used for this product.

            This is great stuff. I have this and the bare minerals loose foundation and I really like this better . I am always in a hurry when I am putting on my makeup and it is easier to use because it doesn't make a mess trying to get it out. It is a powder but goes on like a cream. The only thing is if you don't use a moisturizer before you apply this or a face primer then it will not stay on. I have oily skin and this is the best foundation I have tried and I have tried a ton . I use bare minerals matte on top of it because I do have oily skin. Can use it wet but I prefer dry because it is creamy when you apply it.

                        I had heard great things about Bare Minerals, so I was excited to try something. I don't think it's a good fit, though. I have very fair skin, but very warm undertones, and the lightest foundation is just too one-dimensional for my skin. I look like a ghost and lose all of my natural blush. Then it sits on top of my skin and makes my fine lines more obvious! The coverage is great, and it's super easy to put on. I just wish the color and consistency were better.
