Everyday use FANTASTIC. Seriously, I haven’t had many blemishes at all since I started using it. I wouldn’t use it for a wedding (I know you aren’t) because as Ms. Rainbow pointed out it does kind of show up as “White face” in photos. But it’s light and wonderful and you can get great coverage with the Kabuki brush :o)

I really like it.  It’s definitely not full coverage though, so if you have undereye bags like I do, you’ll probably still need concealer.   I am obsessed with their “warmth” bronzer though, it’s such a nice shade!

I bought their finishing veil recently and it’s fantastic. My skin has improved since I started wearing it in place of my cheapo mineral makeup. I definitely plan on buying more of their products.

Agreed with the above posters. I wear it for everyday use. It takes like zero time to put on and looks nice and natural. But for special occasions, I still wear regular liquid foundation because mineral makeup doesn’t photograph well.

I love it in the summer months, because it is very light, but I like Makeup Forever in the winter…

I use it for every day use and if i wear the “warmth” with the regular foundation i never get “white face” with that said I dont think I would use it for my wedding…I think I am gonna get my makeup professionally done.  But I love it for everyday…it takes like 2 min and you never have to worry about the lines that occur with liquid foundation when you havent blended it in enough.

I like the product, but my only complaint is that it is kind of messy. I try to be really careful but I always end up getting it all over my counter. 🙁

I LOVE it! I wear it everyday as well and definitely recommend it to everyone.  It’s so quick and easy in the morning.  I have combination skin, and this makeup really helps keep the oil in check throughout the day, but doesn’t dry out the rest of my face. I don’t have any problems being photographed in it.  Maybe I’m just already so pale, that it doesn’t make a difference? haha.  I use the warmth bronzer, and I never look abnormally pale in pictures.

I really don’t like it.  It does not provide much coverage, which I need because I have redness on my face and some acne scars.  Also, it always seemed to wear off halfway through the day due to my combination skin.

I’ve been using it for 5 years and I love it.  I rarely break out and I love that it isn’t shiny on my skin, stays all day, and gives me a beautiful glow.  I am always complimented on my makeup/ skin and I really think the bare minerals have made such a difference.  I’m actually planning on doing my own makeup for the wedding since i don’t want any other makeup used (with the exception perhaps of my eyes).

I like bare minerals, but I always find that after a few hours it seems to disappear. I think the coverage is pretty good, not the best though. I like how it feels on my skin too, but it just sucks because it doesn’t stay put!

My mom has the same problem with it too
