The Product Name Says It All

Pros: creamy, flawless
I have been using Bisque and Well-Rested since I became a bareMinerals user almost a decade ago and over those products. However, they were never a true concealer. Now that I am in my 40's, the under eye application became the most important part to cover, but some products can exacerbate the flaw. This concealer requires very little product (less is more is the motto) and is so freaking amazing. I like dabbing little dots on the area and then blending with the Light Stroke Brush.

Pros: easy & flawless
I am a die hard fan of the original foundation and have not liked some of the newer formulations for face coverage. The Ready compact was not as seamless; The BareSkin did not apply well over my moisturizer. I was intrigued by the testimonials and the tutorial videos. One of the boutique salespeople hooked me up with the tools to apply and I am now a convert. It is a great alternative to those days when you want to me a bit more casual with your makeup. Plus, the moisture it provides cannot be beat. I would recommend getting shade matched since the names are different from the foundations. Thanks again bareMinerals for revolutionizing the category!

Perfect Shade of Pink

Ring Leader is a great color and the Moxie is a new formula for BM. I am always looking for the perfect shade of pink, and this is it. The tingle is similar to the Buxom formula, but is way more minty. I like the sponge applicator vs the brush, since I have slightly uneven lips. This is a keeper.

I was bummed by this product. I had been using a similar product by one of BM's biggest competitors. This one was much cheaper, so I gave it a solid run. However, did not see or feel the results I had been under the competing treatment. I found the texture too light & I was not thrilled with the scent. I wish I could love all BM products, since I am such a devotee, but I went back to my other wrinkle treatment product.

However, did not see or feel the results I had been under the competing serum. I found the other complementary products did not apply easily over this one, & all the instructions said this was the one that needed to be first on skin. The dropper is also to big & delivers too much serum.

Please do not be intimidated by the bright colors in this palette. I have green eyes, and the contrast looks great on me. You can customize the look for a more daytime look & then bump up the drama for evening. I use the deep blue shade as a liner. A small pat on the brush goes such a long way.

Pros: glow
I got this in a QVC kit a few years ago & fell in love. It quickly replaced Clear & Flawless as my favorite Radiance. I sometimes mix into my foundation for a little extra glow. I little sweep on the top of your cheekbones & in the inner corner of your eye is truly awesome.

This foams beautifully & does not strip or dry out my already parched skin. It does not take off your full makeup the way the Purifying Cleanser does, but is way more gentle. This works so well with my Clarisonic. I would love for BM to take this out of a tube & put into a package with a pump. This is super cumbersome in the shower.

This product is genius. I do not have extreme dark circles, but as I am getting closer to 40, I have noticed the texture & color underneath my eyes drastically changed. I put a dollop of the Luminous 1 on my hand & use the Light Stroke brush to apply. I do blend with my finger a bit. Once it has dried, I cover it with either bisque or well rested. You want to not put on too much, otherwise it can look cake. Also, a small amount on the inner corner of the eye will do you wonders.

I have tried both of the daily moisturizers, & I like the new SPF one, but I want to texture & application to mimic the non-SPF one. It requires so much drying time before you put on foundation. I like to use this when I am not wearing my typical makeup because I cannot rely on the other products for SPF. Also, the scent on this one should be less potent.

I use macNC15-40 foundation,what shade do you think it will be best for me to order
i have a bad black spots on my face so i want a make up with full covarage and also help my skin.
I would recommend getting shade matched at a boutique or an authorized retailer. My sister and I both wear the same shade of bareMinerals foundation, but we are different for the Complexion Rescue.

I've been wearing Vanilla Sugar for years. Is there a READY eyeshadow that approximates that color?
I've been using Vanilla Sugar in the original eye shadows, but would like to switch to the READY shadows. Which color approximates Vanilla Sugar?
The new Convertible Eye palette has bareMinerals READY® Eyeshadow in Stealth, which looks very close to Vanilla Sugar.

My foundation match
I usually use MAC NC45 color. What original foundation broad spectrum spf 15 color should I purchase??
If you go one of the BM boutiques, they will do a shade match for you. It is really the best way to go. The shade names look slightly different in each of the 3 different formulas. I like to blend two colors together - Fair and Fairly Medium.

Can u sample any cleansers and moisturizer before purchasing?
I've read all the reviews about your line. I've tried so many lines and haven't found anything that really works. I have uneven SKIN COMPLEXION, sensitive skin and sun spots. Is there anything you recommend?
If you go to one of the boutiques, they will give you a generous sample of almost anything you ask. They gave me a sample of a few eye colors, and it was so big, I have yet to open the jars of the actual ones I subsequently purchased.

what's the difference between the multi-wrinkle repair vs Active Cell Renewal Night Serum
I used my sample of the multi-wrinkle repair and it worked great but would the vs Active Cell Renewal Night Serum be even better.
The wrinkle repair is a treatment to assist in the wrinkles you already have & prevent new ones. The active cell renewal does not target wrinkles, but maximizes cell renewal/turnover while you sleep which will make you look fresher. It complements the other product so it can work on your best skin.

difference between multi-wrinkle repair vs. wrinkle concentrate?
How is this different from the currently sold wrinkle concentrate?
The wrinkle concentrate works to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles with this targeted skin-plumping concentrate. It has a moisturizing texture to it & is more preventative. The multi wrinkle repair is a much stronger formulation & works on multiple surface layers of the skin. This does not have a moisturizer feel to it, and works to fix the problems you already have. So, if you already have wrinkles, the multi wrinkle repair would be a more aggressive treatment. You could also alternate to use the wrinkle concentrate during the day & the other one at night.

What are the best ready eyeshadows for fair complexion, hazel (brown/green) eyes, and dark hair?
Looking for both day and night looks/options for hazel green/brown eyes.
Wild Thing would. I think it is sold out online, but boutiques probably have it.

Any matte eyeshadow colors available, ones without a matte/shimmer combo?
I can't tell by looking, are their any matte eyeshadows in these duos that aren't matched with a shimmer or satin finish. When you reach a certain age as I have, shimmer shadows are not as appropriate.
If you read any of Leslie's posts or interviews, she believes that a bit of shimmer is good on women of all ages. The luminosity helps diffuse any fine lines or wrinkles. My mother uses all these palettes & traditional slimmers, and she became a believer that shimmer was not dependent on being under a certain age.

Eyeshadow Substitute
I Love "The Truth" quad and I am on my second one. The only issue is that I run out of Serendipitous(light peach) right away as that is what I use as a highlighter and all over shadow at times. Is there a similiar BM shadow I can use or will Bare Minerals please consider selling it individually? I love it and I cannot get enough of the eye shadow.
I think a great substitute would be City Lights or Citrus Twist.
