Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer The Perfect Product
This is probably my favorite beauty product of all time. This gel cream has it all- great coverage, good blendability, and a light feel on the skin. I have oily, sensitive skin and have never experienced irritation or breakouts from this product after well over 2 years of use. It looks beautiful when applied with fingers or a brush and a little goes a very long way.
Rated 4 out of 5 by WhiteGold Some caveats.
So far, this is the best foundation I have tried. I like that it feels similar to wearing regular sunscreen - a little moist/tacky at first, but fades down to gently moisturized skin. It appears very smooth and light on the skin, though if not buffed with a brush I find that it accentuates large pores. If I buff it, then they look about how they normally do. Where I have bumps or dry spots the foundation shows up more, but that's always the case.
If your skin tone matches one of the shades and you are looking for light coverage, this is great. Unfortunately, my skin tone is hard to match. I'm apparently very fair with slightly gold undertones, and none of the Bare Escentuals foundation products match me. Birch comes close, but I have to thin it out a lot and apply it to my neck because it is just slightly too dark and pink compared to my skin. A real shame. Please, BE, expand your color range for fair skin!

Its actually VERY light, goes on smooth and I love how its so light, its almost like a tinted moisterizer. It also moisterizes so I love it for that reason also, doesnt dry my skin out. i have acne prone skin too. With being pregnant currently, i've had some small dry spots on my cheecks and when i put this on with the Soft Focus brush, it gives me perfect coverage. If you want a bit of color after, you can add some Bare All Over FAce Color over your face. I do that sometimes and its perfect and QUICK! Love it! Don't ever discontinue it BM!
Rated 3 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Not horrible but not great.
I purchased this in store with the brush. The color match was not great a little too orangey and maybe a tad too dark for my complexion but I didn't notice until 1st use, days later. I have to use the mineral Veil or I look too greasy. I'm also not happy with the coverage it is not Foundation coverage and or even bb or CC cream coverage, possibly tinted moisturizer coverage. I will stick to my regular CC cream and continue to use Bare Minerals Foundation until they come out with a better CC cream.
Rated 5 out of 5 by llhallett Perfect coverage, long lasting, beautiful complexion.
I cannot recommend this product enough. It covers flaws effectively with a light a soothing creme base. I've already bought 3 more! I've been looking for the perfect foundation forever. Here it is. Simple as that.
Rated 5 out of 5 by bostonbagel New fav foundation!
I was looking for a new foundation that provides light-medium coverage but doesn't feel too heavy on the face. It took me some time to figure out what my shade is (had to go into a Sephora store, it was too complicated to figure it out online!), but I'm so glad I gave this a try! It's so easy to apply and truly makes my face look flawless. One thing - I don't touch my face for a few mins after applying this because I feel like it needs a little time to soak in.
This is my new fav foundation that is affordable! Will def purchase again.

This is absolutely amazing. I use Ginger, however, today I'm ordering Tan. Anyway, I just started using foundations, powders &concealers. I'm in my 30's and I've never needed any foundations or concealers until recently. I only use BE products. I put a few dots of complexion rescue on the top of my hand and then use a brush to dab and apply. I've noticed how the tops of my hands are even looking soft and supple!
Rated 3 out of 5 by TexasCC Nice foundation
This thin foundation feels very nice on the skin. The Opal is too dark for my skin (In natural light. It looks fine in my bathroom w/no window and makeup mirror) but I can get away with it if I apply a lot of this product on my neck also. Then I seem to be the only one that really notices the line between the two. My natural blonde sister would def not be able to wear this shade as it would be way too dark for her. It seems a tiny bit too yellow even though it's made for cool skin tones. The texture feels nice and light but it is still shiny so I am required to still use clear powder over it for a more matte look. I have normal skin with a nose that tends to get oily. My only skin concerns are spf coverage and enlarged pores from past sun exposure. It does absolutely take more than the suggested pea sized amount to get that SPF 30 coverage though. A super light layer of anything will not protect you from the sun. Especially if you use any anti aging products with retinal or aha/bha.

I have very dry and pale skin. I've had such a hard time finding a liquid foundation that isn't too dark for me skin, and feels good. I've been through so many foundations, Sephora, Mac, drugstore brands, and more. This is the best! It's not cakey and you can barely tell i have it on. I love wearing it and it's very easy to put on. 10/10 would recommend for everyone!!
Rated 5 out of 5 by barepro01 Love with barePRO!
I use this with the new barePRO Performance Wear Power Foundation and I love the result together! Using them separately is nice too, but I LOVE them together! I feel like they provide more coverage together, even though I'm sure people use this just as a tinted moisturizer, but if you want more coverage use this with barePRO.
