Bare Minerals Bisque Product Review

Updated on February 4, 2010

Bare Escentuals Bare Minerals Bisque concealer is one of the beauty products I use every day. This amazing concealer does everything it promises. I have tried all types of liquid and paste concealer makeup. The bare mineral makeup covers those pesky spider veins on the side of and under my nose better than any other concealers. Even if I’m not wearing anything else, I use Bisque Concealer on trouble spots. It’s my bare essential!

This is one of many Bare Minerals Reviews to come. Watch this space for more minerals makeup information coming soon.

Bares Minerals Makeup Basics

Bare Escentials mineral makeup is NOT powder foundation. Regular finishing powder includes talc and other additives. Bare mineral makeup, including id Bare Minerals Bisque concealer, is made of sheer minerals. I don’t know how it works, but you put Bare Esentuals on dry, but it melds with your skin and somehow does not dry. More importantly, when applied properly, Bisque provides excellent coverage.

Applying Well Rested Under Eye Concealer

As with most mineral makeup, id Mineral Makeup Bisque concealer is applied with a brush. The concealer brush is a small smooth brush that deposits a generous layer of the mineral concealer where you need it. The makeup comes in a small tub with a perforated insert that allows you to shake a small amount of makeup into the cap. Then you dip the brush in, tap off the excess, and apply under eyes and in the dark spot where the inner eye meets the nose. I also use Bisque concealer on my at the outer edge of my eyelids where veins are beginning to show through the skin.

Under Eye Concealer vs. Regular Concealer

Bisque is a wonderful overall concealer. It’s different than concealer you use to mask a blemish or camouflage other dark areas on your face. For under your eyes you’ll want Well Rested, which is specifically formulated to reflect light.

Cost of Bare Minerals Makeup vs. Regular Makeup

Before I started using Bare Escentuals Bare Minerals makeup, the biggest obstacle for me to even try it was the cost. One day when I was feeling flush I went ahead and ordered the starter kit. That basic set of makeup lasted me eight months. It cost about half of what I would have spent on makeup from the drugstore during the same amount of time. Sure, Bare Minerals cost more per purchase, but the makeup lasts so long.

It’s difficult to understand until you actually use minerals makeup. The containers are so small, but a little goes a VERY long way. In fact, most people I know who try mineral makeup and don’t like it are using too much of it. If you use the right amount—and it’s easy to figure out by playing around with it—it lasts a very long time. Mineral foundation and mineral concealers will last for months and blush and bare mineral eye shadow will last for years. (Bare Minerals Warmth may last a lifetime!)

If you haven’t tried mineral makeup, it’s worth it! And specifically, Bisque does everything it promises and more.
