Looks like the new liquid is available now. I would try this if I didn't have so many foundations I need to use up. It looks pretty nice!

I am going to try it! Currently I use Mac Pro Longwear...which I like alot. I have high hopes for the BM new liquid. The brush is genius!

I am very excited to try this new foundation and only disappointed because it doesn't ship until April. Even though I watched the video and looked at the shade finder, I still feel like I'm really guessing. Anyway, the mineral powder foundation just isn't cutting it anymore and I'm hoping this is a better option for me.

Looks very interesting and the brush is a very unique design. I especially like that you can easily get very light coverage yet it still seems to cover the flaws (I watched the how to apply video)

Jessica give good tips on how to know what shade you would be but then gave no additional info as to which foundation shades apply to which skin tones. That wasn't very helpful. I am guessing that I am between a beige satin and a beige natural (think that was the next one up)

I appreciate that at least they are offering a much wider shade selection than most brands sold here. Now if we can just get more detailed and accurate info about how to choose among those shades. Let's hope it's more than the typical advice the hosts often give which usually amounts to no help at all. You know the "if you are light choose between these 3 and if you are medium, choose between these, yada, yada and most of you will fall into the medium category." How often do we hear that with every single foundation {#emotions_dlg.thumbdown} Yet never any guidance on cool, yellow or neutral skin tones.

I ordered. The powder is looking too dry on my skin and this is the first silicone and oil free liquid foundation I've been able to find!

I was even looking at this, and I don't wear foundation. Yes, nice range of shades.

On the product page under the description tab there is a link that says "shade finder". If you click on it, you'll get a page with clear descriptions and model pictures for each foundation shade.

I thought I read on a post on here that more shades would be available when it's released to the boutiques in April.

While QVC will have a good deal on the foundation/brush set like they did when READY was released, I think I'll wait and pay more to get the right color.

I go back and forth with original, matte, Ready, Philosophy tinted moisturizer and Elizabeth Arden's custom blend liquid foundation.

I like them all at different times and hate them all at different times. I think my skin just has good days and bad. (Or i have good days and bad days of application!)

As much as I would like to order it now, I have no idea what color I would be.

Thank you. This was very helpful. I would have totally missed it if it weren't for your post.

looks interesting, not sure about the limited color choices though-I think powders can be a little more forgiving as far as skin matching.

cassiem.......thanks for the info to click the shade finder.

I looked right over it.

I'm still perfectly happy with the Ready, but I am drawn to try this.

If you go their site, you'll see the additional shades and descriptions. There will be 20 shades on sale May 1. The site has three more darker shades and five other assorted shades.

But QVC's offerings are pretty good for most skin tones.

I'll definitely try it, but I actually went back to the mineral powder formula after using Youngblood's liquid mineral foundation. A friend of mine opened a boutique and sold Youngblood makeup, so to help support her store, I've been using the liquid foundation for a couple of years now. Just for the heck of it, I went back to BE mineral over the weekend and fell back in love with the powder foundation. I still like the Youngblood liquid and will probably like the BE liquid as well, but my first love is the original BE powder.
