Phrases Chosen: packaging needs work, love the product
I absolutely love the product in dry conditions. For high humidity, though, I have not had success, it gets runny and almost slimy on my skin when I wear it to work at the restaurant. My biggest problem is the bottle that it comes in (and all products that BE sells in these pump top bottles) the pump top works fine for a little while, but then it stops dispensing and I dne up having to unscrew the top and use the tube inside like a dipstick, then I end up having to try to tap it out into my hand. I REALLY wish they would not use these pump top bottles, a cheaper, more user friendly, easier to control, more reliable option would be to simply use a squeeze bottle. I hope someone will consider this change. I now refuse to buy the product (opening it up like this makes it dry out) and purchase foundation primer from other companies that comes in squeeze bottles.

I am curious as to the best order to use moisturizer, eye cream, foundation primer, and eye primer along with BM foundation and other beauty products?
I am new to Bare Minerals and I am trying to learn how to get the most from the products. I have very early signs of aging and would like to slow down the progress and make my skin look as young as possible using the entire line of products! Any advice you can give is helpful, especially the best order in which to use ALL of the products to have younger looking skin.
I am 40 and have very sensitive, combination that tends towards breakouts, skin. I use an eye cream and night moisturizing cream (night creams are heavier) at night. On most days I wash my face, apply a day moisturizer with SPF in it (as a natural redhead, SPF is NOT optional), then I put a very light coat of foundation primer and eye primer (for special occassions I use a bit more foundation primer, but be careful because BE foundation primer can flake off if you use too much ofit and if you get into humid environments it can absorb the humidity and get slimy). Once I have the primer all ready, and it has had a chance to dry and set, I add my BE foundation and blush and mineral veil. Oh, a tip, when you apply the night cream and eye cream, make sure to get the cornersof your eye, where "crows feet" are trying to get started. In my experience, matte colored eye colors work best, I have had issues with pearl shades slipping into small creases and highlighting the creases! I use pearlized shades for parties and such, but not for all day, and put the eye primer above and below the eye and into the corners. Also, just before I apply my eye color I make sure to dust a tiny bit of extra mineral veil just below my eyes to help with sweeping away any"fallout"eye color or if I get a little smear of mascara on my cheek or something. The mineral veil helps a lot with this! I know that any extra dark color below my eye ends up looking like bags, and that is most unhelpful. LOL
