What kind of finish does this leave on your face? Like a fresh glow or like BE Matte or BE regularly powdery texture?
Tell me, please, what kind of finish does this leave on your face? Like a fresh natural glow or a powderly texture like BE Matte or regular BE? I have used BE for a few years and am beginning to see it really settle in to my pores and fine lines, quite unbecomingly so I must add, even with a moisturizer and primer or two (or three - LOL).
I am looking to go back to a "fresher-looking" face and wonder if this will provide it for me? I am almost 39 years old, have fair skin, normal to a little dry, some freckles and cheek redness, and of course the dreaded dark circles under my eyes. Sounds pretty, huh? :)
Anyway, hm hm, will the Buildable Cover Complexion Kit work for me without looking overly made up and still give me a fresh-looking face or is your opinion that it would be too cakey?
I need your expert help because I live 300 miles from the nearest Sephora and have to do it all online! I LOVE getting those boxes in the mail, though! I would love to hear from lots of different outlooks on this.
Thanks Gals! ~ Maggie

Hi Maggie! I would definitely order this product. It is not cakey at all. I always use the concealer and usually the white part of the sponge versus the dark side or the brush.The white is the medium coverage, the dark is the heavy and the brush is the lightest. That covers the best and it sets like powder and then it does soak into my skin a little but never looks bad at all.

it sounds like we have the same skin tone and in the same age group =) It gives a matte finish that also looks somewhat fresh. Since I have started using it I have had many compliments on how great my skin looks.

I have been using Bare Minerals for years and no one could tell I was wearing makeup (in a good way =]). When I switched to this kit I loved the coverage however it does seem a tad cakey. It's matte and I'm not quite used to it. If it's natural you're going for, Bare Minerals is the way to go. They have great value kits.

I have dry skin and it looks powdery on me, honestly. if i don't moisturize enough, you can really see my dry skin. otherwise, it looks nice.

I also use bare essentials. I find that it is closer to the regular BE. I was not a fan of the matte BE and returned it. I find that this does last longer than BE. The concealer works great and the powder is quite light and natural looking. I have been applying BE mineral veil on top just because I love the look of it. I did not find that it set into lines and it did provide a nice natural finish with good coverage. Try it!
