Pros: ineffective
I don't get zits but I have some shine. I have enlarged pores from having spent too much time in the sun years ago. That is all I have with regards to skin issues. This stuff did nothing. I put it on and waited but nothing happened. So I tried another layer and waited and still go no results. All I was looking for was some initial shine reducing. My face is not even overly oily at all. I'll have to mail this one back and that is a pain.

Great Matte

Love the matte portion. I always need a lot of this type of product because of sunscreen use and my combo skin (normal w/oily nose.) It always makes me look oily no matter how 'matte' the sunscreen is supposed to be. I am happy to see that companies are finally offering a colorless powder in matte. I would love to purchase this again if they offer it as matte only. I also need the matte side to be much larger and don't care to purchase the glow side of this combo. I like that the product is easier to get onto the applicator than other brands I have tried.

The only thing I would change is adding a lighter option to your list. I love this and wear the Bisque but would also like to purchase a lighter option too. I wear it over my lids for an easy way to add non-migrating sun protection to my eyes and a very natural quick shadow or base. I also like to apply it to the area below my eyes in the inner area when I don't get enough sleep. Gives a great natural brightening to any purple shading I get there now and then. I apply it lightly with a brush and just leave it without touching. Works perfectly.

I purchase Fairly Light in all the powder foundation products from bare minerals and this one was no different. I am light with neutral undertones and this is a bit too dark for my skin but it is the closest I can find. Other people think this is a good match for me. This is the quickest way for me to bring down the shine of my sunblock (SPF 50) that I apply evenly to my entire face each morning. Often I will use a mineral sunblock if my face is being sensitive for the day and this helps get rid of the terrible white caste that I always get from non tinted mineral sunscreens. This is quicker for me to apply than any BB, CC, or foundation liquids and it looks and feels much more natural on my normal skin. It is not flat at all. Sometimes I will follow with a fluffing of powder too because my nose can get a bit oily. Please make this formula in a compact.

Dries my skin

Pros: dries skin, does not sensitize eyes to spf
I do not have dry skin. In fact, I have issues with shininess but it dries out the skin on my eyelids. I purchased two shades and both are nude.

I like the formula and have no issues with the casing though I prefer a more matte lipstick. Lead the Way looks like a dark purple (and states this in the description) but after I put it on I found that is is really not purple at all. It looks like a dark reddish/pink color with no purple. Bummer. Flying high is a lovely tone of real light purple. So they have a light option for the purple tone lovers. I haven't tried any of the other colors but probably will in the future. I do like that it does not smell like mint.

Love the Velvet Cream
Rating: 
5 / 5
5 / 5
I'm a fairly light in the original foundation and the velvet cream shadow works wonderfully. I love to use it as an overall eye base and to brighten those areas that I want brightened too. This product could probably work nicely for most skin tones. I will have to try the other colors because the vanilla is the first one I've ordered from the velvet line. I am sure I will find many that I will love.

about the nano-particles
Does the foundation contains the microparticles (nanoparticles) or is it not nano?
I found this in the Learn section. Here is the copy and paste that I just found, "ActiveSoil Complex, the exclusive ingredient in our bareMinerals Skincare line, incorporates a comprehensive blend of potent macro and micro minerals to increase cell turnover, improve luminosity and help your skin defend against environmental stressors. "

How do I prevent the foundation from settling into wrinkles and accentuating them?
Original loose foundation.
Have you had this problem already or is it a concern for purchasing? I have not had this happen. Do you tap the brush before starting to take off access product? Start with less powder and then add more if needed. Start around the outside of your face initially and buff inward. Add more powder if you then feel you need more. The original tends to help moisturize so it should help prevent this. Also, if you start with a translucent hydrating mineral veil that should help a lot. The veil also helps you get a more even coverage. Hope that helps.

I'm not sure but if you do a quick check online you will see that there is no evidence of nano particle absorption by human skin. Just something I thought you might want to know. It was an unsubstantiated concern.

You might want to look into the Golden Medium. It might be something for you.

Velvet Pistachio Eyecolor (crushed mint) (size: small)
 
are these shimmary or matte?
normally velvet means matte but the pictures look like they have shimmer in them
Hello Kate. When I saw your question I went upstairs and took a close look at the vanilla cream velvet eyecolor. It is matte with no sparkle or shimmer. When I applied it to the back of my hand wet, it just gave me a darker shade of cream that was slightly tan or skin colored. I believe the other colors are made from the same formula but I have not tried them yet. Hope this helps.
