Rated 5 out of 5 by lilpiggie12 best compact since the original
BM you've finally did it~ Thank you!
I've been using the original BM loose powder for over 15 years, even before I found it on QVC. I am 38 and I have very sensitive skin. I tried everything from drug store brands to high end counter make up and everything made my face itch and break out, except BM. I am asian with light skin and I tan very easily.
I've been looking for something more portable for a long time now. I love the coverage, which is medium coverage but you can layer for more coverage. It doesn't make me look cakey and made up. so just like my loose powder but faster. I can put it on and leave, it takes 2 mins. I put it over my BM bb cream or Algenist BB cream and if I want it to last, I use Prime Time and it'll last all day and all night. I don't wear a full face every day so I like a clean and natural look. But I can also layer it without looking i've put the entire compact on my face.
I am just trying to figure out which color fits me best. Once i do, i know i'll have this on auto delivery forever, just like my loose powder. I wear the Light in the original loose powder. I am trying to decide between the light natural 09, golden nude 13 or silk 14. just waiting on the 14 to arrive to compare all 3. :) so far the 09 and 13 are very close... I think 14 will just be slightly warmer, which I like. If you love BM loose powder, you'll like this. I refuse to use any other type of foundation.

I currently use the BareMinerals Matte loose foundation and wanted to give this a try. When I received it, it was shattered due to poor packaging, but that didn't stop me from trying to use it. I was able to run my brush over the crumbs in the compact to get enough on my face. I love it! I have long days, 14 hours-10 at work. This makeup is matte, covers really well. I don't like any shimmer or sparkle, this works like the matte loose foundation but lasts longer. I workout everyday after work and lasts through all my sweating. I am very satisfied with this foundation

I have sensitive skin and 68. This foundation is wonderful. Most foundations are too heavy and look like powder. This foundation looks natural and provides as much coverage as you need. No need for heavy moisturizers, this foundation is clean, does not separate, blends perfectly and does not dry the skin. Color is absolutely perfect; you can't tell the difference between skin and powder. I love it!

Pleasantly surprised with this new pressed powder. It has a very soft velvety texture and offered a more flattering color selection for me than the Ready foundation which always had too much yellow or pink pigment in the color range. This new formula has a much lighter but build-able coverage that gives a very natural finish to the skin. I personally like full coverage for weekday wear so I generally use this on top of the complexion rescue. It makes my skin look fresh without feeling heavy like using a higher coverage foundation would. I have sensitive acne prone skin, and this formula has not given me any issues. I wear the shade 01 opal in completion rescue, fairly-light in the original and was color matched 03 Champagne in this foundation at the BE store.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Mishy1968 One of the Worst Foundations I Have Ever Used!
I used the original foundation for years, but when I got into my early 40s it was too drying for my skin so I have been using IT Cosmetics and have been fairly happy with both the powder foundation and CC cream (but I am between shades in the IT line so was looking for something new). I tried this foundation every which way as far as using/not using different moisturizers, serums, primers, and nothing makes this foundation look good. It separates, it is VERY drying and within 2-3 hours of putting it on my face actually looks "pixelated" and my pores looked 100 times bigger than they are (and I do NOT have any issues with my pores). Could not return fast enough.

I've been a Bare Minerals gal for over 20 years. Love this foundation. Smooth with great coverage and it's easy to layer on a little more if you want. My new favorite. Well done.

I really love the shades of color for Black women. It's such a large variety to choose from. I selected the Nutmeg and it fit my skin tone to a T. It goes on easily and provides long lasting coverage. The only issue I have is that if you touch your face, you will have little color fingerprints everywhere. The foundation comes off way too easily. If they could do a color stay or something; this product would be a 10+++!
