ORIGINAL Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15 - null
I am a new bare minerals costumer and I was pretty on the fence on whether to buy this product. I have acne prone skin, so i usually didn't wear foundation out the fear of breaking out. This product is amazing. The coverage is great and it doesn't make me break out! It may only be me, but it made my skin clearer! I am not scared to use this product like I was with others. I gave this 4 star though because you have to be cautious with this product. What i mean with this is that if you are a person to touch your face oftenly, the makeup may come off. For example, my face got a little oily throughout the day so when I went to the bathroom I patted my face with a paper towel. I was shocked to see my foundation on the paper! Also, if you have oily skin, DEFINITELY get the matte foundation. Other than that, this is a great product and most definitely recommend it!
I absolutely love this product. It provides the perfect amount of coverage for my skin and gives me a really healthy glow. I really like that I don't have to use a lot. I don't like to loom like I have a bunch of makeup on, and I really enjoy how natural this makes you look. Defiantly my favorite foundation. The trick to getting it to cover more without adding more to you face I just to buff! This product does have a shine quality that I love but I you don't try matte for a more powder finish look.
I had used bareescentuals in the past buy didn't apply correctly and decided to stop using. I decided to try it again, and apparently watched the video in more detail. I love this product, the coverage it gives, the easy way it is applied, and how nice it looks. The color I chose is just right for me. I may go to another shade in the summer if necessary. Love it!
I have used Bare Minerals for sixteen years now. Lived in the north and used liquid since my teens. When I moved south, liquid was too heavy. I switched to Bare Mineral products and haven't had any problems. I am now 70 years old and love the way my skin looks and feels.
The prices are reasonable. I do wait for promotions though. The shipping is fair. Never had to use customer service online.
I had to have a friend help me learn how to best apply it, but after that I just loved it. She showed me how to put a little powder in the cap and then apply it to the brush with lots of circular motions in the cap to really get it evenly distributed on the brush for even distribution on the face.
I wanted to love this makeup - I had just recently gotten my skin super clear after changing my skincare regimen and I wanted to switch over to a makeup that was lighter while still offering adequate coverage. I will start off by saying that I have had pretty oily, problematic skin since about the 7th grade. I switched to this after having been using Tarte loose powder foundation because like I said, I wanted something a bit lighter. At first, I thought that it looked really nice but by the second day of using it, I noticed that I had many small breakouts around my chin and right cheek. As I mentioned earlier, my skin has been VERY clear lately and this product is the only thing that I had used that was different that I could link the recent breakouts to. I also noticed that it made my skin very oily after only an hour or so but that may just be because I have oily skin to begin with. Overall, I am very sad that this product did not work for me, because I have heard great things from other people.
This is the only foundation that I use! I have very sensitive skin and this does not bother it at all. I use the flawless face brush to get full coverage and it does not look caked on. Stays on 10-12 hours without the need for touchups. I love this foundation much more than any drugstore and highend product that I've tried!
Did NOT help my skin.
After changing many different lifestyle habits around to better my skin, my makeup was the ONE THING I had no changed. I thought the Neutrogena Skin Clearing liquid foundation was working well, except i still had some acne forming. I decided to INVEST about 100$ into this makeup to see better results, knowing the mineral makeup would be healthier for my skin. How disappointed I was in this makeup does not explain what I feel. I'm only 21 years old and so making a 100$ investment into makeup sounds crazy, but I was desperate to find the final solution to my skin problems. After a few weeks of use my skin had not cleared up at all, but instead CYSTIC acne had started to form. I sometimes get cystic acne but not to the extent that I got it after using this makeup. On top of that I felt the need to touch up the makeup throughout the day. I do not have sensitive skin so I do not know why this has happened. I would not buy it again and have since returned to my Neutrogena makeup which has cleared my skin. Since I spend the money, I'm willing to keep trying out the mineral makeup on days that I do not need heavy coverage and see how it fares.
Nice makeup for beginners.
Bareminerals is a nice makeup if you are just getting into the makeup game. It is natural which I like and it is easy to apply. I like the fact that they offer kits because that makes buying makeup more affordable. My only complaint is that I do find that I have to use concealer to cover any problem areas before applying the foundation, otherwise you can still see the imperfections thru the makeup. But other then that I do love bareminerals.
One of the best luminous sheer to full coverage foundations!
As a makeup artist I try many different types of foundation. I was skeptical about using this foundation until my friend gave me a makeover. I can proudly say that this BM original foundation has been my staple for 6 months! I can create the luminous full coverage look I desire without the worry of it melting off, or looking cakey. To perfect my makeup look I use the Prime Time original primer. I also visited a boutique to learn better techniques for the application. The right tools make all the difference. :0) I use the tapered face, and full coverage BM brushes to build the coverage I want, and the Flawless Radiance Brush to set my foundation using the pure radiance mineral veil. This foundation will leave a beautiful luminous finish that is perfect for anyone with combination or dry skin types.
