Rated 5 out of 5 by Tkanz79 Looks Like My Own Skin!
I was looking for a new foundation but I have really oily skin. I love this new formula. It not only keeps my shine at a minimum, but it doesn't look like foundation. People asked me what I was doing to have such great skin. When I told them I had foundation on they couldn't believe it. They do recommend going a shade up if you are unsure. I would agree. The compact makes is so easy to use compared to the other formulas that come in the loose form.

I am so happy with the loose bare minerals I should not try something else but I get curious.

I have been an avid user of BareMinerals products for years. They are the first to offer a variety of foundation shades that don't look chalky of Black women's skin IMO and still offering all the benefits of a powdered vs liquid foundation. I love this color too. I wish that the color names were similar or there was a cheat sheet for colors because I used to wear their Golden Tan and this set had all new names. Nevertheless, Teak is what I ordered and it is wonderful. Doesn't feel heavy on my skin and most importantly doesn't settle in my lines, wears well, and lasts all day. Besides all of that though....this brush is EVERYTHING. It's dense enough to pack in the color without overdoing it or applying the foundation unevenly in different areas. It's just wonderful. Around the time I received this, I ordered Laura Geller's For the Love of Chocolate 7-piece Collection (see attached). I love her foundation because of the marbled foundation but the brush, while longer that this one, suuuuuuuucks. (Not to go into too much detail here. Check my review for her product). This brush packs the color in the brush whereas Laura's brush is too "fluffy" and loose to do it. One thing about the color for BM vs LG's foundation is fact that this one is a solid monotone color, whereas LG's foundation is marbled like a bronzer or something. So, it offers low- and highlights to the skin automatically that I like better for a "natural" look. So, depending on what you are looking for, this product can definitely wear well esp for women of color or those of use who are highly pigmented and need a variance in the color options, i.e. caramel, teak, tan, walnut, etc. Enjoy! I hope this was helpful...but if you have any questions, I'll be glad to answer if I can.....I'm a makeup connoisseur. :)
Rated 5 out of 5 by nowisgood love this product!
I am a woman of color and I've always wanted to use bare minerals because of the "mineral" compound, but it would leave my skin looking ashy! but when I heard about the new pro, I decided to give it a shot, and I am so happy that I did! It doesn't leave my skin ashy looking, the coverage is wonderful and buildable and it seems like once it is applied, it sort of melts into your skin leaving you with a beautifully even looking complexion yet, you don't look like you have on makeup. just beautiful skin! I am very happy about this product and will be buying more!

I absolutely love bareMinerals! Just when you think they can't make anything better.... they come out with a product like this! I've always loved the loose powder foundation, and have been using it for years. But, when I discovered that they had come out with the foundation in a compact form, of course I immediately purchased it. It's truly the best of both worlds. You have the wonderful foundation, that we have all come to know and love, in a wonderful easy to use, and great for on the go, compact! I cannot say enough good things about this great product! I use this every day. I purchased it about a month ago, and you can't even tell that I've even made a dent in it. And knowing, that it will automatically be shipped every three months, is a no-brainer! Way to go QVC!
Rated 5 out of 5 by 1koko Great Product!
I am enjoying this foundation. I have found that I don't have to use a concealer beforehand. I am a woman of color and I have dark pigmentation under my eyes and am delighted that I get full coverage with this product. I haven't experienced any drying nor irritation. I will definitely be purchasing this product again, in the future.
Rated 1 out of 5 by dsmom No coverage
I used to wear Bare Minerals, but it just doesn't seem to work for me any more. I was hoping it would cover my spots like it did in the presentation, but it was as if I wasn't wearing anything at all. I could still see every spot and discoloration.
