I too hate the new packaging. My husband managed to get the darn thing open so I could get the last of the product out...I will find out how he did this. We may have ended up cutting the plastic...can't remember. I hate any product really that you can not get the last of a product out of...especially something so expensive.
As too Bare Minerals...I still like it and I like that I can just go pick it up at any Ulta without having to wait on shipping etc. I have thought about going back to a liquid...but then I remember all those pictures where my face looks like a ghost thanks to liquid foundation....
