Here is some feedback from me about 7 Ways to Bare
Rating
5 out of 5
5 out of 5
Phrases Chosen: perfect lid
So I am a medium tan complexion. When I do my eye make-up I first start with the "stroke of light" around my eye to cover any dark circles I may have. Than I use one of my "7 Ways to Bare" to cover from my entire lid all the way up to my brow bone. I like silk stalkings which comes in the 7 ways to bare kit which is a med-light taupe shade that has the perfect amt. of shimmer. After I cover the entire eye area with one lighter shade I will sometimes take a pinkish shade over the lid only than take a darker brown shade and do my crease. I also use a Laura Gellar French Vanilla highlighter in the corners of my eyes and right under my brow bone and under my eyes and up the top of my cheek bones. I wish Bare Minerals would make a baked highlighter like that but they don't. Anyways, I love the 7 ways to bare collection. There are lots of great shades which are perfect for getting that natural look. Hope this helps. XOXO

Phrases Chosen: torn
Today will be my third order of this BE solid foundation. As long as I use the Primer first I love the way it makes my skin look and feel. But, I can't quite match my face to the shade of my body. The Golden Medium 270 is a tad too light and the Golden Tan 330 is a tad too dark. The Medium Tan would also be too dark bc it is for the same level of darkness but has different undertones. I am definitely more of a "yellow bone" so rosey tones I don't think will work. Also, I have recently begun having acne, I am 26 but I am now using Pro Active and am clearing up but still need coverage. I don't know if I just am not using the right brush bc from other reviews I have read today I guess that different brushes will give you different amounts of coverage but, I can still see some dark marks a little on my face when using this. I am going to try the precision brush. Okay that is all I have to say. I wish that there was a shade between golden medium and golden tan. I have been mixing them but I can't afford to buy 2 a month. I am just going to go lighter and add bronzer and that. Other than that I love this make up. I look so clean, refreshed, glowing and special. Since using this and Laura Gellar make up I have gotten so many compliments. I use Laura Gellar blush, eye shadown, highlighter and sometimes I will add her mineral foundation onto my Golden med. BE to make up for the lightness. Okay thanks. Good luk.

How long will this foundation last?
I just want to know if this foundation will awhile like the other foundations do.
This make up last when used with the prime time primer. I can fall asleep with this make up on and wake up in the morning and only have lost the make up around my nose bc that's where I get oily at night. But yes, this make up does last and since it is on the go you will always be able to have it on you for on the go touch ups!

Why did BE change their shade choices to numbers instead of word description?
I wanted to see what shade to purchase on QVC and didn't know my color
I would definitely recommend going to a boutique and being shade matched before you order. Be careful though and make sure you really look at your makeup after you are done being matched bc some ppl say they were incorrectly matched. So definitely have the sales person apply the makeup to your face so you can see if it is too light or too dark.

Does this compact come with a mirror on the inside?
The description doesn't specify and the picture is taken in such a way that you can't see.
Yes this compact comes with a mirror and it is about 2x2 inches. You can definitely do your makeup on the go with this mirror!
