Powder foundations are perfect for those of us who don't like to wear a lot of foundation. You can just swipe or pat a little bit on to take away your shine without feeling like you're wearing much. They're also great to layer on top of liquid foundation to give it a matte finish.

I was dead on with the shade. It's the perfect shade for me. Combined with my concealer (Smashbox Photo Ready), it covered my scars. Even covered a stubborn eczema scar I have on my right cheek, that NO makeup had been able to cover before. I was out tonight, and noticed that under a very harsh light in a restroom, my face still looked flawless. I do have an oily t-zone, and I looked a bit shiny, but it was almost dewy, not overly oily. I just blotted it with a blotting paper and it went away - none of the foundation actually transferred.
I can't describe in any other way how impressed I am with this foundation! I used a dry oil and a primer on my face before I applied it. I buffed it on with this very dense Laura Geller kabuki-type brush and it came out perfect. I'm so so so happy!
Now that I've been using this product for a while, I can mention a few other things about it. It works the best when I use my Hot Pink BB cream as a primer. I use the BB, then my concealer, then my Studio Fix, then finish with just a tiny bit of HD powder across my nose and forehead, where my pores are largest. My skin looks incredible and you can't see any of my scars. The difference in appearance is dramatic. I love this foundation sooooo much and will continue to use it! I've noticed that I only use a small amount to achieve a flawless look, so it's definitely worth the price I paid too! I don't know how else to express my joy and love for this foundation. You just have to try it yourself. ...read more
This is a very fine mineral foundation that is applied with a foundation brush. The foundation goes on evenly and stays. I also use the Bare Escentuals blush and mineral veil for a total and put together look.
I love the fact that this makeup is natural. There are no chemicals, preservatives, etc. It's all natural.
I also like the fact that different shades can be blended together for a better match to your skin, or for an additional look.
The product is very versatile and totally worth the money. It may cost a bit more, but you don't use as much and actually works out about the same as using liquid makeup dollar for dollar.
Another factor is that you have a sun protection factor of 15 built in to the foundation and do not have to worry about if your moisturizer has an SPF in it or not. You care covered with Bare Escentuals Foundation!
I usually use the light to medium in the winter months and switch over to medium during the summer months. I can add some "Warmth," another BE product to deepen the color of both foundation and blush.
I highly recommend Bare Escentuals Foundation for women of all ages. You will look your best with Bare Escentuals makeup! ...read more
