OK, I love the stuff. What a difference from my previous brand which was bobbi brown. The only thing I don't like is bisque as an eye concealer. it works great round my nose but for my eyes, it just doesn't work.

Does anyone use another brand and if so, does it blend ok?

The Bisque is my favourite product but I don't use anything near my eyes.

I don't think you need separate concealer- just use the mineral base you already have- use it sparingly and with a concealer brush like the one that comes in the pack.

Unless you want to avoid mineral concealers altogether under your eyes?

I am not sure. I don't know how BE will take with say a cream concealer? All I know is that my dark circles are huge and bisque doesn't help.

Hi gregsausageroll, what shade would you recommend for an olive skin, bit tanned, brown eyes and brown haired girl ( me) Would mineral veil suit my skin type?

I say brown, but there are more hazel.

I've used an illuminating concealer under my eyes today and buffed a tiny bit of bisque then over the top and I look remarkably wide awake!!! grin
