Wonderful feeling, could use more coverage

Phrases Chosen: feels like nothing!, radiant
I switched over to Bare Minerals after some convincing from my roommates- a handful of them wear it. I love the feel when buffing it on, it feels like I am not wearing any makeup at all (which I had gotten used to for my entire freshman year of college). I love the radiance and light Bare Minerals adds to my skin. My friends compliment me often on how natural my skin/make up appears. I believe my skin tone and texture have actually improved with use as well- tone is very even and the texture is very smooth and soft!
I give this foundation only 4 stars because I love the way it feels and looks, but I wish there was a bit better coverage. My acne scars and blemished do not even come close to being covered, but the foundation does minimize it a bit.
I have recommended Bare Mineral products to every girl I have met since- especially those with sensitive skin- because the product feels so amazing. I have switched multiple ladies over from using Mary Kay products even (personal victory dance).

Giddy Pink- a MUST have!

Phrases Chosen: beautiful color, adds radiance
I am in love with the Giddy Pink Blush! The color is fantastic on my fair skin. I was afraid when purchasing online that the color would be too bold and look more "Toddlers and Tiaras" than I would like- but I settled for this color when nothing else was close to what I was looking for. When the package arrived, I was so excited! I will not leave my house without this blush- my skin looks radiant with it! Do not pass this product up!

Bisque Concealer.. not a fan

Phrases Chosen: average coverage, creamy
I switched over to using Bare Minerals about a year and a half ago. The foundation felt amazing on my skin so I have been dying to try their concealer for my blemishes, under eye, and blood vessels that have burst. Unfortunately, I have found the concealer doesn't really cooperate as such- the only thing I can successfully cover is the small red spot where I have a burst blood vessel on my forehead. Even caked on, this concealer does not cover my dark blemish spots when they pop up. When I layer the foundation on as a means of a second concealer, this helps a little but not much more. (I use the Maximum Coverage Concealer Brush.) I was disappointed with this product and would suggest to others to consider the new creamy Correcting Concealer as it may provide better coverage (which I have not used but was considering). Alas, I will keep searching for my perfect concealer out there.

can a pink undertone complexion wear the "Giddy Pink" blush?
I usually wear a mauve pink blush,but I want a sheerer pink blush. I have a pale to medium
complexion with a pink undertone. Blonde hair and green eyes,would this Giddy pink be too pink for my complexion,if so what would you recommend?
I recently purchased the Giddy Pink, admittedly a bit reluctantly, but I love it! I wear the foundation in fairly light and have brunette hair and green eyes. The color is very sheer, unless you want to layer and add more pink! This blush is amazing- my favorite by far. I would go for it! (Or, at least find a boutique where you can go try it out before you buy it.)
