Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer OBSESSED!
Absolutely Amazing, just what I've Ben looking for! Perfect, gives you a beachy glow; does not feel like you have anything on and your skin can breath. Love the packaging! I got the natural and I love it. Hope they Never discontinue it! I have used Bb and cc creams and did not like them. The cc cream was to dry and the Bb cream was not enough. I dont like regular foundation as they seem to thick, feel like a rubber pore clogging mask. The completion you get with the new completion rescue says it all!!! I have never looked better, feel amazing I can not say enough good about this product. I thought twice about writing this review though, I felt like I would be letting my secret out if every one were to get it they would look as good as me lol. Light to medium coverage but build able so just gets better . Transforming !
Rated 1 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Not a foundation
Tried sample before and did not like.. with all the great reviews, I thought I missed something so bought a full size with the recommended brush.. call it a tinted moisturizer and even then, my face just feels sticky. I've tried using more, using less, using mineral veil over it.... it still is in no way a foundation! I'll stick to my tried and true loose foundation or ready foundation, and definitely returning this. I m still laughing at all the effort I've put in to this to try to like it...

This BB evens out skin tone, moisturizers and lasts all day! I used the original powder for years and then got away from Bare Minerals and started using BB and CC creams. I never found one I loved so when I ran out of my last cream, I decided to try the Bare Minerals version. I've know found the cream I LOVE! This feels cooling when you apply it. It makes my face look airbrushed, but I don't feel like I have makeup caked on and you can still see my freckles. Add a little mineral veil, and you're good for the whole day. I don't apply additional moisturizer. I have combination skin and the moisture in this cream is enough for me. I do recommend the brush for application.

I love this product and it goes on smoothly using the brush that was suggested by the sales person. I also use a hydrating mist before using and love how it just glides on. I put a small amount on the brush, dot it on my face and blend with the brush.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Bendite Splotchy coverage
I've been using this product for three weeks hoping maybe there was a learning curve to application. Unfortunately, I'm sorry I wasted my money on it. It does not go on smoothly and doesn't cover blemishes. I struggle with dry skin and all this does is accentuate that. It looks splotchy and patchy and generally terrible. I've been applying with my fingertips because I didn't want to buy yet another brush. I did attempt using one I already had (I think it was called the Heavenly brush maybe). I ended up washing my face and starting from scratch. Maybe the special brush makes all the difference? Would love for other reviewers to be sure to include whether or not they use the brush!
Rated 2 out of 5 by Nicki0914 Disappointed
I used the tinted moisturizer for YEARS and was so upset when they discontinued the product. I gave this BB cream a try off of a recommendation...big mistake! My face has completely broke out since I started this. I wasted my money, time and my face on this product. I do not recommend this product for someone who is prone to acne breakouts or sensitivity. Unfortunately, I will be on the search with different brands to find something that won't make me look like a preteen. :(
Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Amazing!!
I have been using BM for years however I have not felt compelled to write a review until now. This product is absolutely amazing! Gives even coverage and leaves a beautiful dewy glow behind. So simple to apply...use the brush they recommend (not your hands) for the best results. As a full time working mom with 3 little kids this cuts my morning face routine to 5 minutes. People at work constantly asking what my secret is to such wonderful skin :)
Rated 1 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Ruined my Complexion!
Within less than a week of using this product my entire face broke out. I don't normally suffer from acne, but after using this product my forehead, chin, and cheeks became covered in large clusters of blemishes. I've been using bareminerals for more than a decade and have never experienced this. I immensely regret ever buying this product! It was a complete waste of $$, that left me with a big problem. I wouldn't recommend this product to anyone. I'd give it less than a zero if I could.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Great for Summer
I'm a stay at home mom to an infant and a toddler, so I try to find anything to streamline my morning routine. I was just throwing on mascara and calling it good, but I really feel more put together with something that evens skin tone. I was also looking for a lightweight coverage and something with SPF. I was a bit hesitant because I don't typically use moisturizer because I rarely have dry skin (and I'm a minimalist).
BUT, I really, really like this. It has an amazing texture and goes on smoothly and evenly with a pea sized amount and my fingertips. I get the more even skin tone plus SPF, which is awesome for summer (before I usually just went without any sunscreen). I do have to use some mineral veil on my forehead, or I tend to look a little too shiny by the end of the day.
I bought this with the BB primer, and when I want a little more coverage I pair the two and it gives an even smoother look. (I don't have major areas to cover, so light to medium coverage is perfect.)
Also, I'm typically fairly light in the Original (and fair/fairly light in the Matte), and Vanilla is good for me right now with a mild tan, but I think it would be too orange for me in the winter.
Rated 3 out of 5 by loserious I sort of like it...
This is a great product. i love the dewy finish it has and its the perfect amount of coverage for me which is very little because anything more makes me feel weird and fake. one problem is that i was in a bare minerals boutique when i was recommended and color matched for this product, only to find that it was too orange and dark for me when i was home. but that isn't so much the product's fault but the woman's who "color matched". the problem with the actual product is that it sort of dries while applying and rubs off in a half-dried-wet-glue-on-your-hands sort of way... its annoying and inconvenient for someone like me who wants to spend minimal time getting ready in the morning as it adds about 9-10 minutes trying to get the rubbed off little clumps of foundation off of your face without removing the makeup that applied correctly
