I like this very much ...not sure why some find it cake-y ...maybe they are applying to heavy all at once rather than building their coverage ...or perhaps they have dry skin in need of exfoliation?? For me this applies so nice, and lasts all day - selecting the right color can be a bit tricky ...

This is a totally new experience for me ...really liking this product! While I will say my lips feel a 'bit' drier with this than with lipstick - I would expect that ...and only a bit - I have had no caking, and seems to wear well. Will def pick up a couple more shades.

new packaging PLEASE

Cons: to much waste, hate the pump
The product itself is wonderful - but the packaging has to go ...be aware you will loose about 30% of the product because you simply can't get it out of the bottle. I have had some separation issues as well. Please BE - listen to your customers & make some improvements here - we don't like throwing money away. I won't buy again until this issue is resolved.

I love this palette - it's so versatile. I think I can make use of every color which is rare in a larger palette. The brush is surprisingly functional too!

Such a beautiful glow! I don't want a lot of shimmer ...I dust this very lightly over my (Fairly Light) Matte Foundation & it's perfect! Gives such a fresh healthy glow. Great for a subtle blush ...or an 'eyeshadow' too, for a finished but dressed down look.

amazing formula
Rating:

Pros: devine, lightweight
Tried my sample - love it any way you slice it ...smells light & natural (no artificial fragrances that I can see) and what an amazing formula. I have a background in cosmetic chemistry, so believe me when I say the ingredients are top notch, skin loving and pro perfecting! Great under makeup. Drier skin types might need a heavier formula but for all others - devine

Questions
 
How is this best worn?
Is this best suited to wearing alone - or over lipstick?

And, I'm a bit concerned about the 'cake-y' factor ...being in my 50s, this is not an option. I have never tried a matte, for that reason - reviews seemed mixed on this issue so any additional input is appreciated. TY

fintertip application?
Can this foundation be successfully applied using the fingertips? I do get tired of all the special brush needs ...I feel this might be a marketing thing to get us to spend more

Warm tone or neutral?
On my screen it looks like this might be on the warm side? I try to avoid too much warmth as my hair is silver. Neutrals work best for me.

Soooo... I am going to answer my own question ...I thank you everyone one for their answers - but for those pondering the conflicting views here; I am very happy with finger tip application. It IS even, NOT streaky in the least. I do LOVE this foundation. So my advice to anyone else wondering the very same thing is - if you don't already have the brush & have a limited budget ...but you really wanna try the foundation - try it! Use fingertip application for starters. If you aren't quite happy with that, get the brush when you can afford to. I'm very happy w/o the brush. Sometimes after application I buff my flawless face brush over my face for good measure but really just as an after thought. I honestly don't feel it's necessary.

How much product comes in the full size bottle? Also, why don't I see the color 'Blushing Apricot'? I got that color as a free gift with a purchase.
I love this product but I may want to purchase the color Blushing Apricot and I do not see it on the site. I am also curious about how big of a bottle it is available in.
can't help you with the color but I believe the full size product is 3ml/.10oz. It would be helpful if bareMinerals would make this info available for all their products ...maybe it was an oversite

What are the key ingredients?
The ingredients for anti aging results.
Hi - I have a background in cosmetic chemistry ...there are so many 'key' ingredients here ...where to start. To answer your question I'd have to list nearly the entire ingredient list ... this is a lightweight - great daytime formula, or a good day/night for normal to combo skin ...there are no peptides - which are some of the heavyweights in anti aging but you can look for those in a serum. There are a host of botanicals, extract and such that target and balance and sooth
