Good coverage but...

I was very excited to try this new formula, but was disappointed after doing so. The ready foundation has much more SPF than the original/matte formula, which causes the color to look a little different. I was shade matched twice, and still ended up exchanging it for my faithful matte powder version. The coverage was great, but it made my skin look clammy and the color was very off. I don't think it's a good formula for African American women. I'm still a loyal Bare Minerals beauty, but I'll just stick to the powder version from now on. FYI to the ladies who mentioned it was messy...it helps if you watch the video tutorial before purchasing. It's not a swirl, tap, buff application. It's a press and buff application. It's not messy at all.

Phrases Chosen: amazing
I absolutely LOVE this product! Unlike other finishing powders, it's very light and it truly does the job of actually setting my makeup. I have very oily skin, but the mineral veil stops it as soon as I apply it. As for a comment made about the spill proof lid, all I have to say is that it's all in how you open it. That alone has nothing to do with how well the product works.....AMAZINGLY!!

Is this good coverage foundation?
Hi,
Unfortunately I don't have perfect skin, I have blackheads and a few spots. So I was wondering if I should purchase this particular type of foundation? Is it good coverage and will It disguise all my imperfections?
Thanks
I think the coverage is great, but I feel it would be too heavy for someone with skin problems. That's just my opinion. Try going to a boutique and see how it works for you.

Foundation match?
I wear the MEDIUM in the powder and Elizabeth said in the video that you might want to go one shade up from what you use. What is the next shade after MEDIUM?
When I was shade matched, the consultant actually said the opposite. She had me go a shade down. Maybe that was why I couldn't get the color right. I would suggest going to a boutique and trying them on there.
