Phrases Chosen: if its not broke don't fix it!!, stick to whats tried and true
I have been a BE user for at least 10 years . I have gotten my 2 daughters, my daughter-in-law and all my friends to use the foundation. But I am so dissapointed in the NEW Ready spf 20 compact foundation.It cannot compare, as far as I am concerned, to the original and I am considered the "makeup queen". I orginally switched to BE foundation because as I got older I didn't like how the other makeups setteled in the lines and made me look older and I really never could find the right shade and always had to mix two shades to get the right one. I have to admit I sent the first two kits I received back because I really didn't think I was getting the coverage I wanted but finally tried again and BINGO, I have never turned back. I purchased the "NEW" compact foundation, and even talked my daughter into getting it, thinking that it sounded like a great idea. I hate it as does my daughter. The shade is no wear near the original shade that I wear, medium, and it looks thick and cakey. I love the luminosity of the original, that you can really see my skin through the makeup and it gives a glow. The compact foundation is too heavy, and I have tried every way to apply it. I know the reveiws show that some people love it but I really have makeup optional skin and don't like that made up caky makeup look. Going back to the original until they can perfect the compact, which is a really good idea but not product. DDB
