I have been using this foundation for five years now. I have acne prone skin and this does an amazing job covering everything with a very natural looking finish.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Rain Not at all what I had expected!
I wanted to love this, I really did, but I didn't like it at all! Both my daughter and I hated it. It does not cover well at all, and the more you put on the more "cakey" it feels! It did not cover my freckles, and it did not cover the redness on my face, even after several layers. It felt very uncomfortable on my skin.
Overall, I'm very disappointed. I've wanted to try bare minerals for a long time, and when I finally did, I was very let down.

This BareMinerals powder foundation has made such a difference in my skin. As a former acne sufferer, that's saying a lot. Because my skin was so broken out, I was skeptical about whether a loose powder foundation would be healthier and provide enough coverage. I could not believe how much coverage the "Fairly Light" shade gave me. I apply it with a clean makeup brush by my window, as the natural lighting helps me make sure the product is going on evenly. The more I use it, the better my skin gets. It's finally clear!
For me, the foundation and Mineral Veil go hand-in-hand, as one doesn't seem to look complete without the other. After applying the foundation, I sweep on a small dusting of the Mineral Veil, which gives the makeup this luminous, finished look. My skin has never looked better.

I will say that Bare Minerals has always been my first choice since it has come out, I purchased a starter kit for oldest, who is now 24, years ago and she continues to use Bare Minerals. So I could not wait to get this for my teen daughter as a major gift for Christmas. We got this, the mineral veil, serum concealer, kabuki brush, Good Clean Fun and the Countdown to Gorgeous. So you can imagine how excited she was, So after Christmas she started wearing all her Bare Minerals and was happy but she kept itching on her face and her eyes were dry all the time. Come to find out she is allergic to every product that she received as a gift for Christmas and in the Advent calendar. This product is great but be aware of allergic reactions, my daughter was in misery for a few days after using it.

I love, love, love Bare Minerals... Have used nothing but Bare Minerals for close to 20 years ... My only complaint is the colors... Every product has completely different shades to choose from which means having to get color matched or trial and error to find the right shade. I was using the solid foundation and thrilled with the shade, application, all of it.. Then they come out with a new solid foundation, Bare Pro... BUT with all new shades so once again I had to find the right shade. So now I am using Pecan... Love it.. But wanted to have the original foundation on hand as well. WHY is there not a color called Pecan in the original foundation... OR if not the same shade color... Then... a chart that says if you use Bare Pro in Pecan, use ??? in the original foundation. Still love Bare Minerals..

I use Bare Minerals Original foundation & hydrating Mineral Veil on top of my Complexion Rescue for extra moisture. It leaves my skin looking dewy, not gray nor cakey and doesn't accentuate any facial lines. And it looks great alone too.

I got this in the getting started kit. This did not look natural on me. It was too shiny and powdery looking. The matte foundation is much better.

I love how it is on my skin. It's like wearing nothing at all. Then I like to finish with Mineral Veil. Beforehand I put on a primer that I have got from another company. That alone makes my skin feel soft and smooth. I have yet to try from Bareminerals. But I would like to try. But I have one question, When I bought the mineral veil it had a shimmer to it. This last time it didn't, can you tell me why? I purchased the original mineral veil. Thank You Also I really wish you could come down on the price as I am poor.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Love this stuff!
I love the original Bare Minerals foundation! It gives my skin such a healthy and illumious glow while looking natural. I feel that it looks it's best if I apply it after I wash, exfoliate, and moisturize my face. I reccomend using the heavenly brush which is my favorite! This foundation works the best in combination with the rest of the Bare Mineral products such as the warmth, radiance, mineral veil, and I like the corrective concealer. By using this foundation it has actually improved my complexion.
The only downside for me is when I use it in the winter months when the climate is harsh here. My skin gets very dry and the foundation doesn't look as good as it normally does on my skin and usually I have to switch from the loose powder to a BB cream. This year I am trying the Complexion Rescue during this season.
