Pros: the absolute holy grail
I very recently found a sample size of this new product in my order. Enough, unfortunately as it turns out, for 2 applications, but that says a great deal in terms of value. The product itself I found just as revolutionary as the claims for it. Imagine BM Original light, flawless, dewy, radiant finish, then double it - at least. The colour wasn't quite right for my skin tone but I'm grateful for the opportunity to try it. Well, I think I am: just that I now can't wait for the full release so I can get matched to it. Honestly, you are going to LOVE this. Wholeheartedly recommended.

Pros: magic dust!
I purchased this less than a week ago and have left it several days, so that I could try it out in several ways, before leaving a review. On its own, it is absolutely beautiful for my skin colour (Medium Beige/Medium Tan). The finish is truly 'glowing', without being flash.
Also, because I purchased the normal Mineral Veil, which turns out to be far too light for me, I've mixed together the Original Powder, this and a lesser amount of the MV - to give me a customised finishing powder. It's turned out to be perfect, ideal. I've also mixed some with the Well Rested to give me an additional, subtle highlighter. (For these mixes - and I'm dying to try out more - I actually bought 10 small 20g plastic containers, complete with sieve inserts, from the internet. They are just the thing for experimenting with all the BM powder products. So exciting!)
I cannot recommend this highly enough. It's just gorgeous. Another winner from BM and I'm certainly going to be trying several others in the range and get mixing again. Thank you so much.

Pros: phenomenal
Apart from having dry skin, I also have what, apparently, is quite an unusual tone. It varies, over the seasons, from a rather sickly yellow, to a really lovely olive/tan. Needless to say I've had a very difficult time matching foundation at any given time of the year. I've resorted to something akin to 'alchemy' - mixing and matching all sorts of products in an attempt to reach an acceptable result. No longer. I've discovered this product, having used mostly liquids up to now, and am amazed at the results. Used over serum, moisturiser and primer, this (Medium Tan) produces immaculate, virtually flawless results; you'd never guess my skin was dry now. In fact, I've had people commenting on how 'well' I look: which is wondrous for me, since I've been in seriously ill health for several years now. Having solved the quality/finish issue, I'm in the process of finding out which are the lighter and darker shades to this, and plan to continue my alchemy, using mixes of different ratios, in small pots containing plastic sifters, to cover my whole spectrum. I am now a fully fledged BM convert and have recently bought other products, with which I'm equally pleased. Thank you for improving this little getting-older woman's life!

Pros: just perfect, eyedeal
I was lucky enough to have been given a sample of this by a lovely consultant, on buying several other products. I didn't expect much of it, since I have somewhere near 20 mascaras in my stash - none of which did the job. However, on trying it, I was blown away. The wand was skinnier than I'm used to but, the design of this, presumably together with the actual constituents, works wonders. As others have said, it catches every, and I do mean EVERY, single lash, coating, separating and beautifully enhancing very evenly, with only a few sweeps. It's also very 'buildable', according to needs. I soooo wish this had been around 50 or so years ago! Thank you so much. Will obviously be purchasing the full size and just excitedly awaiting availability of the Espresso.

Is mineral foundation ok for an older skin on the dry side.
I have noticed that some people are saying that it can look ageing, is this true.
Definitely not, in my opinion. I'm 64 and have dry skin, and find the BM foundation just wonderful. It might take a while to master the technique, buffing with a brush, but a store rep would be very pleased to demonstrate. If you haven't already done so, I'd say - go for it!
