I really like it. I have some other mineral blush and eyeshadows that I like, too. Last night I experimented a little and make some foundation. I used mostly cornstarch with a touch of baking soda, then added mineral pigments that I had. It came out pretty good, but doesn't have the coverage that bare escentuals has. My only issue with this kind of foundation is it does seem to accentuate the little crepe-y wrinkles under my eyes (I'm 51).

Sis, since the makeup is very fine, you shouldn't apply it under your eyes. Try applying moisturizer under your eyes and putting on a matte (not mineral) foundation since it will only accentuate the fine lines. Mineral foundation works best on youthful skin. You can try it on your cheeks and jawline.

I love the Bare Escentuals Mineral Foundation in medium beige. It gives my skin an instant glow and it hides minor imperfections. My skin became clearer because of it. I also love the glimmer eyeshadows. It's a superb make up brand. Pricey, but worth it!

Oh, I happened to try the starter kit when I was in the states and I had to go back to the store to get the full size products, so you can really imagine how much I love it. It's very light and very natural. The only thing I discover is it works better with dry skin, when I sweat, it tends to melt and leaves little patches on my face. So I would definitely vote for it in dry weather and dry skin. I have been using a list of their products and I write my reviews here: http://www.beauty-tricks.com (just search for Bare Escentuals) and they might give you some more particular information and comment on specific product.

I love this product. It stays longer on me than the other mineral product that i use. Since it is pricey, i use this for special occasions.I use the other product for daily use at the office. But honestly, as it is pricey, it requires so minimal amount to be used so it doesn't hurt our pocket much. It's a one time investment. i guess once in a year?!

It's one of the mineral makeup brands that I use. I find it a bit pricey so I have more of the other brands but it's great. It looks very natural and feel heavy or cakey on your skin like other types of makeups

I think it is an incredible product!!! You need such a little tiny amount of the product and it covers everything! The best part about it is that you look incredibly natural! It gives you the look of health and natural beauty. I am not an expert but it is safe enough to sleep in! How many makeups can say that?
