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.

I had been experimenting for awhile with different types of foundation, and this one was the clear winner. With most liquid foundations from other stores that I tried, it wouldn't last long or it didn't blend well with my light skin tone and made me look orange! This foundation doesn't clog my pores, looks incredibly natural, and does a great job of covering any red marks or zits on my face! Also, a little goes a long way - whereas with other foundations the bottle won't even last a month.
Rated 3 out of 5 by CxRenee LOVE the product HATE the container!!
I have been using BE for years! I absolutely love the product. It covers without making it noticeable. I have noticed the change in the new container. I can not begin to say how much I hate them. The bottom has fallen off of mine several times, each time spilling the foundation EVERYWHERE! This morning I lost half of my container and it is very frustrating. Do I give up the foundation I have loved for so long? Or do I use duct tape on the bottom of it?

First, the good. After years of hearing about this product I finally gave it a try, and I thought this it lives up to the hype. The powder is so fine that it disappears on the skin. The finish is very natural, and the color selections offered a perfect color to minimize redness in my skin. I'd never found a foundation that matched so well, felt light on the skin, and looked almost invisible.
Unfortunately, I won't continue to use it. After a couple weeks of light use, my skin broke out in dozens of tiny pimples in the areas I applied the product. This despite being in my final month of accutane, which had eliminated my acne. An absolute deal-breaker for me. I noticed a few other reviewers had the same problem, so take heed.
