Hate it

Cons: not effective
I'm not sure why everyone is raving about this product, it was a waste of money for me. It does not cleanse at all. i have to use it at least twice to remove makeup and my skin does not feel clean. It does nothing for my face it does not leave it dry or smooth or moisturized. It's literally like washing my face with plain water and soap. I am truly disappointed in this product

Hydrating Gel Cream
Rating
5 out of 5
5 out of 5
Pros: hydrating, lightweight
The first time this came out i went to the store and tried it on. The girl applied it to my face flawlessly (is tha that a word? LOL) with the brush. My skin toned looked even. It covered the red blemishes i had, but it didn't fully cover my freckles which i appreciate. I decided to purchase the product, but not the brush (yes they are sold separate :?#.
For that flawless look i apply this with THE BEAUTY BLENDER! Holy moly my face looks flawless! I hate that i do have to use a lot to get the coverage that i want #maybe like 2-3 pea size drops). When I break out it leaves my skin dry, but i noticed that this gives me a hydrating even skin look.
I would recommend this to anyone who doesnt always wear makeup, those who like the natural look, or beginners.

Cons: oily, not full coverage
This product is not all for skin types. I have combination skin; certain spots oily certain spots dry. I noticce that mostly in my Tzone area (my oily spots) this foundation makes me shiny. I also have freckles and it does not cover my freckles. Typically you are advised to use 1-3 drops depending on how much coverage you want, but i have to use 5-7 drops to get full coverage. The formula is very thin. Once i apply this foundation on it seems to wipe away my concelear or any other makeup i have used before the foundation.
I recommend this product for someone who has dry skin. It helps moisturize their skin and not dry it out as the day goes on. Also for better coverage and an even skin tone, make sure you also apply the mineral veil to lock the liquid in.

Best Moisturizer

Pros: hydrating, smooth, not greasy
I have combination skin (both oily and dry) and that is exactly what this moisturizer is for. If my skin is a bit dryer than usual, like during winter, i can easily put more moisturizer on that usual and it doesn't feel to greasy. My skin absorbs this like water! it always leaves a nice texure and glow to my skin/face especially after exfoliating.

Great highlight product
Rating
4 out of 5

Pros: brightens, highlights
This is really a great product for anyone who is learning how to conture and highlight or has already mastered the art of it! I do want to caution people that if you are using Luminous 2 that is a bad idea! Luminous 2 is yellow tone and yellows usually bring out the blue tones. So if you are putting it under your eyes it will most likely bring out the circle under your eyes versus concealing them. I suggest you use Luminous 1- it might look a bit off but trust me when i say it will blend a lot better and will cover up those dark circles better.

My favorite cleanser!

Pros: wow, amazing, works, love it, favorite
WOW! WOW! WOW! i love this product! I use it every other day and it makes my face look great! It really washes away all the dirt. I wish it was a bit grainer bc i like to feel like my cleanser is scrubbing the dirt off my face, but even though it's soft it really works. My favorite way to use this product is like a mask! I promise you this is the best thing to do! I splash water on my face and apply a thin layer on my face. I wait for about 15 minutes and wash it off. OMG the after product is amazing! It leaves my face feeling very tight and clean. My skin actually glows after this treatment and my pores look waaay smaller. I would recommend this to any one!

Bye Bye Redness

Pros: does the trick, great, works
I don't have bad acne, but during that time of the month i get acne that pops up here and there. Before my acne was really red, but the blemish therapy helps reduce redness. It also helps with healing my acne quicker than any other product i have tried. I use it every day before i put my makeup on. Sometimes I will mix it with a tiny drop of water and use it as a paste on acne, leave it on for 15 min, and voila! Def a great product!

Cleansers
What is the difference between the Purifying Facial Cleanser and the Deep Cleansing Foam?
The Deep cleansing foam is a creamy formula vs the purifying cleanser which is more of a gel type. the purifying cleanser does nothing for me. i've always used the deep cleanser as a mask and/or a face wash. I would not recommend the purifying cleanser.

Would I wear this under my liquid foundation or instead of?
I currently use the liquid foundation, so I wasn't sure if this is replacing a moisturizer or foundation?
this doesn't necessarily replace either. It definitely does not substitute for moisturizer, you should still moisturize. if anything this would replace primer.

I was told at the Bare Minerals store that I need to wear a moisturizer first and then apply this product. Is this true?
I thought this product is supposed to act as a moisturizer. Am i right or wrong?
this product does hyrdate your skin, but it is not a substitue for moisturizer.

Do you need the brush?
Two questions: 1) do you need the brush that they developed with the Complexion rescue? 2) Should you use this before or after a primer?
This product can be a substitute for primer, especially if your face is dry. I do not recommend using primer with this product.

You do not need the brush for this product. I apply mine using the beauty blender, but a regular makeup sponge (unused) or your fingers will suffice for applying this product.

I use Bare Minerals Powder, can I use this product before putting on the powder?
Not sure what other details you might need to answer this question.....
Do you mean the mineral veil or foundation?

Foundation: yes you can. I would advise to put a light application of foundation instead of your normal amount. Although this is lightweight it still gives a good amount of coverage.

Veil: yes. It is a liquid formula so you need some sort of powder to keep the liquid in place. Apply veil as much as you'd like

Shade matching
I use either Golden Medium in the original foundation or Medium Beige Ready combined with Golden Medium in Ready foundation. I would love to try this but hate to end up with the wrong shade. It's a long drive for me to get to the nearest Boutique. Would be nice to get a couple of shades in sample size.
Thanks for any recommendations in advance!

GINGER!

What shade do you recommend in this product if I am currently using READY in medium beige R250?
It is a hike to the closest boutique and my local ULTA store does a very poor job of customer service and shade matching, so I am not sure I trust them to choose the correct shade. Please advise.
GINGER!!

I currently also use R250 and it evens out my skin tone. It looks great!

is the product for your neck as well as your face?
is this product for neck as well as your face?
Not necessarily. This product is a face moisturizer. Bare Minerals does have a neck cream in their skin care line.

I have this moisturizer but do i need to put foundation on top of it?
I have advanced protection spf 20 moisturizer and this is the first make up ive used. I feel like my make up isnt complete though with just this and some blush and maybe mascara.
The moisturizer is just that, moisturizer. It is not a type of makeup. If you want more coverage i'd advise getting the Prim-Time Primer. The primer will even out your skin tone and give you some coverage. The primer can be classified as a BB cream. If you are in need of full coverage then look into one of their foundations: Original, Bareskin, BareReady.
