I am the queen of dark circles...

Pros: miracle in a bottle, it really works
I'll admit, I was very skeptical. I have genetic very dark under-eye circles (thanks, mom!) that make me look like I never get any sleep...which, (who am I kidding?) is partially true. I had tried other dark circle cover-ups in the past with only minimal results.
First off, this product is easy to put on and FAST acting. It only took about a minute, or two, to see a HUGE difference. I was amazed at how natural my eyes looked - and the best part was that my dark circles were practically gone!
I am soooo glad I found this product! Once again, bareMinerals, you have wowed me. Thank you, thank you, thank you! I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for an under-eye dark circle fix that really does work - no gimmicks.

My new go-to concealer!

I love how lightweight this concealer feels. I'm pleased with how it covers up my acne. It's not perfect, but then again, nothing is. Also, the shade fits is great - really, really close to my natural shade. I'm really happy with it and I would definitely recommend it!

Amazing Length!

This mascara is amazing!
I compared it to my usual waterproof mascara by putting it on one eye and my regular mascara on the other, and the difference was eye opening.
The bareMinerals mascara looked SO good! It made a HUGE difference in the length of my eyelashes, and using the tips for how to properly apply, it really helped to separate each lash and coat completely without clumping.
The only thing I wish I could change would be to make a waterproof version. That way, it wouldn't smudge or smear so easily. But, other than that, I'm totally in love with this mascara!

From Day One...

I've pretty much been raised on bareMinerals. From day one of when I started wearing makeup, I've always used mineral-based products. I have oily/sensitive skin and this product has worked great for me! The mineral formula and skin healthy ingredients are GREAT for my sensitive skin.
I recently tried a different brand of mineral makeup that claimed to be gentle on skin and non-irritating. However, within seconds of application my skin started burning and became very red. I've never had that problem with bareMinerals!
Pros: gentle, easy to apply, perfect skin tone color, good coverage, affordable, subtle perfecter, skin healthy ingredients, lasts forever!
Cons: can be somewhat "cakey," not perfect for oily skin types (LOTS of shine)
Overall, I would definitely recommend this product! I've been using bareMinerals for years now and have found that no other brand compares.

Questions
 
Are bareMinerals products non-comedogenic?
I have oily/sensitive skin and my dermatologist wants me to use only non-comedogenic makeup to help with my acne.

Are bareMinerals products non-comedogenic?

I've been using bareMinerals products for years and would hate to have to find another brand!

How long will this foundation last?
I just want to know if this foundation will awhile like the other foundations do.
This foundation is a great all-day solution! It is good for up to 8 hours. (See product description.)

I've been using bareMinerals for years now, and I've found that when paired with the bareMinerals Mineral Veil, this foundation lasts all day!

Best of luck to you.

How do I prevent the foundation from settling into wrinkles and accentuating them?
Original loose foundation.
I would suggest trying out a primer before you apply your foundation. The primer will help to smooth out your skin, even out skin tone/redness, and fight against dryness. Check out bareMinerals Prime Time Neutralizing Foundation Primer as a place to start.

Best of luck!

I currently have fairly light foundation, and it makes my skin look like it's tinted a yellow-orange color.
What color do you think will look better on me? My complexion is light, but I don't like the fairly light color of foundation.
I would suggest trying the next shade lighter, which for you would be Fair.
If you're experiencing an off-color tint, there's a good chance you haven't found your perfect match yet. Not to worry, though! If you have any doubts, you can always head to a bareMinerals boutique or retailer near you and ask to try some on before you buy.
Best of luck!

Difference between the Original Foundation and the Matte foundation?
How do I decide which foundation to purchase? What are the differences between the 2 foundations?
First, determine whether your skin type is:

- normal (few imperfections, very little sensitivity, barely visible pores, and a radiant complexion)
- dry (dull or rough complexion, red patches, visible lines, less elasticity, and almost invisible pores)
- oily (enlarged pores, shiny complexion, blackheads, pimples, or other blemishes)
- combination (dry in some other and oily in others, especially the "t-zone" which consists of your nose, forehead, and chin; overly dilated pores, blackheads, and shiny skin)
- sensitive (redness, itching, burning, or dryness)

Next, based on your skin type, you'll be able to easily decide whether to choose the Original or Matte Foundation!
The bareMinerals Original Foundation would be especially ideal if you have normal, dry, or sensitive skin. It provides excellent coverage without drying your skin, plus the natural mineral ingredients will give your skin an overall healthy look.
If you have especially oily or combination skin, the bareMinerals Matte Foundation might be best for you. It has all of the features that the Original Foundation has, only with a few added bonuses. It will help absorb excess oil and reduce the size of your pores, too! However, these added features may not be needed if you don't have naturally oily skin.

Either way, you can't go wrong! Both of these foundations would be a great choice. Best of luck!
