Great Foundation

I have used the original foundation for about ten years. I didn't think anything could top the sheer, natural looking coverage of that formulation, but this did (I apply the READY foundation with the flawless face brush to get sheer coverage). Like the original foundation the READY formula doesn't feel like anything on my skin. I loved the glow that my original formula gave me but this is better. It is a much more natural look that works well with my oily skin. The original formula tended to leave me quite shiny/oily looking by midday. But with this I just look dewy. If you try it I do recommend getting color matched. Even using the guide on this site I would never have chosen the right shade. In the original formula I wear warm tan or tan in this formulation I wear warm dark. Not only is this several shades darker it is not one of the shades recommended on the color matching tool provided on this site for people who wear my shade in the original.

I absolutely love this! It is one of my favorite BE products. I use it every day whether I wear foundation or not; in fact it is often the only thing that I put on. It completely masks puffiness on days when I am not well rested and it acts as a very natural looking highlighter. I love that, unlike some products designed to brighten the eye area, the well rested powder is not shimmery or sparkly. Instead it has a very natural looking luminous finish.

Phrases Chosen: sparkly
I love the color of true; it is a very soft, subtle coral color on my skin. However, I cannot get past the sparkle. I prefer a luminous finish to my make up products; I am even up for shimmer when I am going out and want to have a less subtle look but this product is sparkly and I feel like I have put glitter on when I wear it. If you are into sparkle you should definitely give this a try because the color is wonderful. But this is absolutely not the product to use to achieve the natural "lit from within" glow that other BE face colors give.

Wonderful for the Winter

I really like this radiance during the winter months. It compliments the rosiness I get when I am outside in the cold without looking like I am wearing make up. I love the natural glow that this provides; it is not glittery, sparkly or shimmery it just adds a very natural, healthy looking sheen to my skin.

This is a great all over face color. I love the original foundation but the ingredient that gives that "lit from within glow" can sometimes leave my skin looking a bit ashen. I use warmth to counter this. Warmth adds dimension to may face and gives me a very nice natural hint of color. I typically use it as my stand alone color after I apply my foundation. However, I also use it to do contouring when I wear blush and want a more made up look.

Questions
 
Is this product sparkly?
I love a luminous finish to my make up (think clear radiance or even the original foundation) but do not like sparkle or glitter (think true or tropical radiance). Is the finish of this product luminous or sparkly?

Why are no darker tones being offered? Do you intend to offer them at a latter date; I am specifically interested in the shade tan?
I wear the original foundation in the shade tan and want to know why it is not offered.

How and When Do I use This?
I got this earlier this week but there were no instructions. Should I use it before mineral veil? Instead of Mineral Veil? After foundation? When and How?
I often use this alone without foundation but when I do wear foundation I use it after I have applied foundation, color (if I am wearing any) and mineral veil. It is my final step. I use this everyday because it very naturally accentuates my cheekbones by acting as a highlighter. But it is really useful if, for whatever reason, you have dark circles or bags under your eyes.

Where is Warmth meant to be put on the cheeks?
I've heard about a million different explanation for applying Warmth, and I'd like to hear what you all think. Where does Warmth go on the cheeks? On top for a highlight? In the middle for some extra color? In the hollows for a more sculpted cheek look?
I use warmth in different ways depending on what i am trying to accomplish. When I don't wear blush I use it in the middle of my checks. Applying it this way gives me a very natural (no make up) look, it adds dimension to my face without any obvious color. When I am using in conjunction with my blush I apply it to the hollows of my cheeks as a contouring color. My sister, who's skin tone is darker than the warmth, uses it at the tops of her cheeks as a highlight. It gives her a very nice, natural looking glow.
