I recently purchased a small pot of the BE Bisque concealer (ordinary one not the summer version). I thought I would give it a try before ordering the full BE kit with foundation, mineral veil etc. Anyway, I find the colour of it far too orange for my skin tone. When I've used it to cover blemishes it seems to make them stand out more. Nice orange dots all over my skin!
Anybody else find the colour of Bisque wrong for their pale skin?

What I was wondering was if I could use a normal BE foundation as a concealer. Could I apply the foundation all over my face and then just use the concealer brush and the foundation to apply more coverage to the blemishes?

Also, bearing in mind that the Bisque is too orange for my skin, I'm still not sure which shade to go for. I was thinking of #1.2 but having looked at the shades on the internet and comparing it to the Bisque, I think maybe the #1.2 may be too dark for me. Still, the #1 looks too pinky.

1 is very pale. I can wear from 1 to 2 winter to summer. The one thing I like is that they colour match a range of shades. I've tried the summer bisque and that to me is a beige shade.

I do use the regular loose powder as a concealor, either dip a brush in to the lid and dab it on or mix with a drop of water, then brush over as normal.

I never even bothered to buy the Bisque (I’d seen Leslie demo it on QVC). As you say, I just use my regular BE foundation as concealer. At first, I’d apply the ‘concealer’ then buff on my foundation as usual, but it didn’t look quite right. So the next time, I buffed on the foundation. Used a concealor brush (or an eyeshadow brush can be used in a pinch) to dot on the concealor to the problem areas, then used my foundation brush to just buff my face (no need to apply more foundation to the brush) to even things out. Try it, it works great!

Most definitely!!! In fact I find that this is the *best* way to cover pimples etc. I make sure that the spot is well moisturised so the pigment will stick, I dip my Laura Mercier Camouflage brush into loose mineral powder (BE #1, #1.2, or a mix of both) and then dab it just where required. Then apply foundation and repeat the first step if necessary. I have always found that trying to cover up pimples with a normal concealer means that most of it comes off when I try to blend the concealer in. With using the powder foundation the pigment stays on the whole day, covers redness, and looks very natural. Cool
