I do recommend to friends. I have had acne all of my life, even at 58. This was the ONLY product I had the whole line and realized I needed ONE.....it was simiply the bisque. All I need do is clean my face and use a cream I have that leaves a soft non creamy cover on my face so my skin will not be moist. I actually contacted the company about the moisturizer making it easier to apply with a wonderful even looks. Besidess the size of the product its my belief you don't need anything but this product. A bit of blush or a radiant glow if in winter and just a bit in summer its all I use. I learned much using ***. and if I had to say what else that I'd need wouid be the back light/highlte . What I covet are the brushes. You can't find a better brush that what comes from B/E/ if you use cheaper brushes don't blame the make up, its the brush. I am SICK a house guest took all of my brushes. I collected every sort for five years and now they and my make up are gone.
I was so excited to try this powder once I bought it. I coverage is very light, feels like you have nothing on your face. It makes a mess! Every time you apply the powder it gets all over the place, on your clothes and all over your counter.
This foundation has the most natural, weightless coverage there is. Never feels heavy or sticky, unlike all of the liquid ones I've tried.And I think it is good for my skin, never seems to irritate it or cause any breakout. I would have a very difficult time using anything else (and hope I never have to!)
