Great, but no color match

Phrases Chosen: color, smooth
I really like how this product feels on the skin. I don't have as much acne breakouts as I did with other foundations. The product feels so smooth on the face. I know I shouldn't touch my face, but it's hard not to when you feel how smooth Bare Minerals is.
However, the Bare Escentuals stores (I went to two) kept telling me Golden Tan was my color. My friends I definitely noticed that it was much darker than my skin tone. Perhaps they need a another color in between Golden Tan and the next lighter one? Or change the way the color is chosen by staff in the stores? I have since switched over to Ready SPF and the color is almost a perfect match! And it's lighter than the loose. It's not a huge loss, because I now use the loose foundation for minor contouring! Pretty clever, I thought :)

I like the coverage from READY SPF 20 Foundation except that it produces wrinkles along my jaw line that do not show up with other foundations?
I do use Bare Minerals moisturizer, prime time before applying foundation. I will try a layer of mineral veil between primer and foundation and see if it helps. It doesn't look so much like it settles into wrinkles. It looks like I have a patch of skin about the size of a quarter on each side of my face that looks shriveled. What am I doing wrong? I am 52.
I have the same problem, but on my forehead. There are absolutely no wrinkles visible until I put on the foundation. I even tried Primte Time under the foundation. The Prime Time made it more noticeable. Overall, it still looks really good.

The only thing that seems to help, is putting on just a little less on my forehead. I don't know if this is an option for you. I'm also going to try putting on a lot of moisturizer next time and see how it works. Maybe ask Bare Minerals staff? Or email them? I might if this next thing doesn't work.
