Pros: goes on smoothly, good coverage, long lasting
Cons: can't find the right shade
I really love this foundation! It's the only liquid foundation that I've tried that didn't break me out. It has great coverage and with my dry skin, it's great for dry, cold, Montana winters. The only reason I gave it 4 stars is because it's not quite the right color. I wear bare satin 06 in the summer. I bought bare shell 02 to try since my skin is lighter now that summer's over. But it was too light. So, I mix the two and it's the perfect color. I would love it if BE comes out with a color in between these 2 shades. Something similar to Fairly Medium in the Original Foundation.

Pros: soft and feminine
This looked so pretty online, so I ordered it. I wasn't sure about the colors when I opened it up, but tried it anyway. I absolutely LOVE it! The colors blend so well together and it's so soft and feminine. This is my favorite eyeshadow palette I've ever tried! I just wish it weren't a limited edition, I might have to stock up.

Bravado-The Perfect red

Pros: perfect red
I've tried a lot of different red lipsticks, but never found the perfect one until I tried bravado. I have very fair skin so most reds look like they don't belong on my face. But this shade looks good. I love that its long lasting too.

Pros: love it!
I love this new makeup! It really helps with my dry skin and it covers even better than the original bare minerals foundation. It's so much faster in the compact too. I would suggest getting shade matched though. The color isn't true to the loose foundation. I wear fairly medium in the winter and medium in the summer. I ordered medium and it's a little lighter than my winter color. I just add warmth to darken it a little.

I wear Fairly Medium in the Matte Powder foundation so what shade would match that in the liquid?
For my winter color, I use fairly medium in the Original foundation. I was excited to try bareSkin, but can't find a color comparable to fairly med. I ended up having to mix bare satin 06 with bare shell 02 and it's the perfect shade. Since I wear bare satin 06 in the summer, it was ok purchasing 2 shades, but I would love it if BE comes out with a shade in between the two.

What color would you use in this?
I currently wear medium of the powder, but wonder if this would be better for my skin? I would like to look a little younger, not expecting miracles, but don't want those fine lines on my chin to be so obvious.
I used to wear Medium in the Original foundation for my summer color. Then I switched to Medium Tan in the Ready. I was excited to try the bareSkin. Bare Satin 06 is comparable to Medium in powder and Medium Tan in the Ready.

Which shade should I choose in the new foundation
In the original foundation I wear medium beige and in the ready foundation I wear medium tan. I am so excited to try the new foundation!
I wear the medium tan in the ready foundation for my summer color. I got the bare satin 06 in the bareSkin and it's a great match.

2 Part Question: Which foundation type is best for deep wrinkles (parenthesis) and which shade for pink undertone skin?
I am 59 and need to find a new foundation that won't make my facial wrinkles so obvious. Up until now the only foundation I have found that blends into my face color is Pink 2 by Shishedo (sp?). I am very fair and have pink tones compliments of my red headed dad..lol
I have wasted so much money on liquids, powder foundation, mineral ones and I can no longer afford to waste money as I am disabled and on a fixed income.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Thank You,
betty
I also have pink tones and fair skin. I would recommend Bare Shell 02. It's the lightest color for cool undertones.

How do I prevent product from oozing out after opening??
I absolutely love this foundation, except for the bottle. :( I love that a little goes a long way, but when product randomly oozes out and down the side, wasting DAYS of foundation, it's hard to convince me to purchase again. I haven't been able to figure out what causes it, as it seems random. I've tried shaking less, tried shaking more.... but it's just so frustrating to take off the lid and see foundation pouring down the side uncontrollably. PLEASE TELL ME THERE IS SOMETHING I CAN DO TO PREVENT IT.
I've tried shaking it then let it sit for about 30 seconds. It helps some, not as much comes out on it's own.

What color combination, either 2.0 or 4.0, is best for blue eyes?
It would be nice to have a chart telling you what colors go best with each eye color. It's always hard to decide without professional help, particularly online.
I have blue eyes as well. I just got The True Romantic Ready eyeshadow and it really makes my eyes pop. Browns are good for blue eyes. Orange and blue are complimentary colors, so The Paradise Found 2.0 is nice too. Nirvana (part of The Paradise found) is an orange peach color that really brings out blue eyes.
