              Big Nope! I really wanted to like it but this product did not work for me. I tried applying it lightly as well as building coverage. It accentuated my pores big time and separated on my skin over time. Coverage doesn't last long. Only good things I can say is that it is easy to apply and feels nice, but it doesn't perform it's primary function well and was a pricey lesson.

                I am 74 years old. I've used Clinique make up since 1974 and have replaced some of their products with Bare Essentials over the past couple of years. The products don't irritate my skin and do a great job of covering blemishes on older skin. I still stick with some of my Clinique but the products I've gone to in Bare Essentials are wonderful.

                        Hello Laurie,

                        We recommend using our shade finder to find your best match. We first suggest choosing you skin tone and then your undertone. If you find that you posses more red in your skin, you should choose cool. Yellow undertones would be golden. A mixture of both would be considered neutral undertones.

                      Years ago, I used summer bisque concealer because there wasn't a good match in original. I traded to bare pro in light natural 9. I have neutral undertones. I wanted to try the original again. I looked at the shade match and couldn't decide between two of the new shades.
                      Can you recommend a shade? I'm happy with bare pro except that I want spf. Should I just go back to summer bisque?
