Legions of fans have switched from liquid concealer to this mineral powder, which works on everything from acne to dark under-eye circles. Also works as a base under eye shadow. Great coverage, and especially good for oily skin. SPF 20.
Some had issues with it caking up, and may settle into fine lines.
Super smooth with a handy applicator, which makes it perfect for targeting flaws and dotting and blending along under-eye shadows. Works especially well on dry and mature skin. A little goes a long way.
Not as good on oily skin, and the color is not opaque enough for deep coverage.
Contains botanicals and antioxidants to smooth and protect the skin. Highly pigmented and long-lasting. Thick for good coverage, yet looks natural. The shade is a good match for the brand's foundation colors. Long-lasting.
Some problems with getting this to blend, as it dries quickly.
Super easy to apply and blend. Contains lemon peel extract aimed at diminishing dark blemishes over time. Non-sticky formula and natural, so can be worn alone as a blemish touch up if going without foundation. SPF 20.
Does not work as well to cover redness and rosacea. Some found it difficult to find a good color match.
This creamy concealer is best used under foundation to allow the acne-fighting ingredients to work. Reduces redness and swelling, as well as providing good coverage. Comes in 10 shades.
It can be drying on the skin. Some found it difficult to blend.

Launched in 1995, the bareMinerals company produces natural, cruelty-free makeup using botanical extracts and natural minerals. Their brand has won a lot of fans and accolades, with their concealers consistently top rated. Concealers are there to cover a multitude of issues — acne breakouts, under eye shadows, imperfections, and blemishes. Concealers are thicker than foundation and more opaque for deeper color and coverage. Professional makeup artists recommend applying concealer after the foundation, when you can see exactly which problem areas still need help. Match the color with your foundation exactly, unless you are using for dark under eye-concealing, in which case go no more than one or two shades lighter if you have very dark circles.
