I have used Bare Minerals for years and always thought I'd deal with the less-than-stellar coverage. Liquid foundations have never worked for me either. I decided on a whim to try this based on reviews and felt compelled to add my own. Love, love, love the coverage and better color match (FYI, you can order samples on W3ll's site). I have total combo skin and still get acne - but so far, so good with no breakouts having used this for a solid week. I did as other reviewers suggested and put on immediately after mositurizing in the morning, otherwise it does look streaky and cakey. I also buff again after finishing my make-up routine.
