Deluxe Original Foundation Broad Spectrum Spf 15 - null
Love the product, but ...
I have used this foundation for many years in medium beige & was thrilled to see a "real deal" on the larger size. Unfortunately, this popular shade was not available & I was unable to purchase. Please make this available for those of us who use these products faithfully. It would be nice to get a bit of a price break now & then. By the same token, I do realize your products compare favorably pricewise with other lines of makeup & I do appreciate your efforts. bareMinerals is simply the best & I have "recruited" many others by giving them starter kits as gifts. Once you try it, you're hooked!
Great but needs a sift and lock
Love this product and use it daily in medium beige keeps my skin flawless, however hate that it does not have a sift and lock option on. I love that it doesn't but for traveling it would be great that way I don't loose about half of the product. Please consider that this product is in a bigger size then the original foundations it does not have the sift and lock container. But I still love it best birthday gift to get.
Something was wrong with this one
I bought this foundation and the mineral veil at ULTA around Christmas time when it was on sale in these limited additions. It seemed like a lot better price for the bigger jar compared to the smaller sizes. I just started using the foundation about 3 weeks ago, this April, and it is all clumped up on my skin. At first it seems to go on normal but then it looks a mess like it is clumpy, uneven, and blotchy within a couple of minutes. I used an old sample that I had of the original foundation and it works just fine. The mineral veil works just fine but this foundation has something wrong with it. I have used BareMinerals for years and never had this happen! I stopped by a Sephora and the makeup representative told me they didn't change the formula that she knew of, but she did have a customer come in the other day and say the exact same thing. The rep advised the customer to stop using the mineral veil (because the veil doesn't have the parabens in it and we need the parabens to kept the makeup together and in tact) and she said the customer called her back and said that it worked. I tried the same thing when I came home and it is this Original Foundation SPF15 that is causing all the clumping. Has BareMinerls changing their formula? Are they not having good quality control? Are they using parabens when they are not suppose too? I sure hope I can get my money back or a replacement because I am not happy and will be seeking further action.
Shifter instead of click & lock - love it!
I have been using bare Minerals since 2001 and love it. The original foundation has not change, yes I know it comes in a variety of forms now, but I am still able to buy the original. What I like so much about this Deluxe package - is that it has the sifter instead of the click & lock, which I don't like. I understand why it was done, but I am the type of person that wants to get all of the makeup out of the container. I am not able to do that with the click & lock, unless I break it. My request is that, for those of us that prefer the sifter we have options to order that instead of the click & lock. I would appreciate that on all of the click & lock products.
No matter what I will never stop wearing bare Minerals, my niece has been wearing it all of her life - she has never had any other makeup on her face - I know she never plans on wearing anything else either and she is only 22.
Please make this with the locking lid!
Love the foundation and love that this size is good value, but so much of it is wasted in spillage, especially if you have to travel with it, because there is nothing to stop the powder going everywhere. Just make it so that it can be closed like the regular size, and then it would be really great!
This size is great. I love the larger lid, it's so much easier to use.I just wanted to get this for the container and it was a bonus with the value of the makeup. Please make this with the locking lid like the smaller ones! I can't turn it over to tap in the lid, I have to use the brush and tap it out into the lid. I also can't travel with it or tip it over. I have to keep it upright or the entire contents will empty into the top have and be a mess!
I have been using bareminerals for years and i love it esp this one.
I only have 1 issue
cant get all the colors in this one. I hope you change and make it so you can get all the colors next time. But I got it for my daughters and they love it. 17, 16 their complexions have been so much better since they changed to the bareminerals.
Can't say enough about BE-for over 10 years it's been my mainstay for face, eyes, cheeks etc. This was an amazing value so of course I got it. I've been using Matte for a while but I still love the original so it's a win win for me either way; I even got a little bonus since the demand was so high, and my order took a little longer than their usual fab shipping, a small extra jar of foundation!!! You just can't go wrong this foundation or this company. Perfect coverage every time and no thinks I'm 51...bonus!!!
MY FAVORITE FOUNDATION
I have been using this foundation for years. I especially like when this super size is offered, since I use this every day. I have tried some other foundations recently and have been disappointed each time. Either they are too heavy or greasy looking in a liquid makeup or too drying in a powder and make me look like I was dipped in flour. This has great coverage and feels like I have no makeup on. I actually prefer this large size without the sifter, so that is another plus for me.
