I love bare minerals but I waste so much of the loose powder and it's no good in a rush. I've been told the pressed BM is terrible. Does anyone use a a different brand of pressed mineral powder that is good?

Hi there, I have just started using the bare minerals ready foundation and have found it is great, the coverage is good and my skin looks flawless! I have many compliments. I would recommend that you go to a bare minerals counter and try some.

I love the bare minerals ready foundation and never use the loose bm any more. I've read bad and good reviews about it too to be honest so when I first ordered I got it from qvc so that I could return if I didn't like. The shades aren't quite the same though so that can be abit tricky. Over summer I wear medium beige in the loose and shade 250 in the ready and at the moment I'm wearing r230 which would be fair I think in the loose. HTH :-)

What do you mean you waste it? I just open the lock lid a crack so it doesn't all spill it, takes no longer than anything else tbh.

Oh ok thanks. I'd heard it was terrible but I could test it a counter! I've got oily skin how is it on that?
I have older loose ones which don't have a sifter and I end up doing my makeup in stupid places and super quick and I'm clumsy so loose powder can get everywhere confused

You need the new sort, super quick and less messygrin

My skins quite oily too and I get on well with it, if I get abit shiny I just dab on abit of mally face defender and it looks great again :-)
