Original Broad Spectrum SPF 15 Foundation: Medium size - null
I LOVE Bare Minerals but HATE the new lids. The container tops keep you from being able to use a lot of project. A lot get stuck in the twist lid and is wasted. PLEASE go back to the old containers.
How to get all the makeup out with that lock top
I noticed someone was upset that all the makeup is hard to get out do to the lock top. I also don't like the new design.
What I do is when you get to that point where the makeup is almost gone and won't come out, flip over to the bottom and there is a plastic stopper if you will that you can take right off. I use a tweezers to pop that plastic stopper. I just use the container upside down to use the last little bit of makeup.
I love the BareMinerals makeup but hate the top of the container. It is so hard to get all the makeup out of the container because of the lock top. I used to be able to get all of the makeup out by taking off the closure but now it is too hard to get the thing off so some of the makeup is still in the container when I throw away the container and I hate that.
This is like a magic eraser it makes all the problems on my face just disappear. I can wear my makeup and confidence at one time without having a caked face!
Best foundation ever
This is the best foundation ever! It has made my skin actually not breakout. I have really bad acne and it took me a long time to find the right kind of makeup to use. Bare minerals is my absolute favorite!
Broad Spectrum SPF Foundation; medium sz. /NOT !
completely agree with fellow beauty reviewer/critic.....item NOT a deal, its more like a sz. fraud whom not worth its price! way too small for any face brush to use! you can find free trials at cosmetic stores at this size or when one purchase and it comes as FREE gift....it ought to be properly labeled as gwp (Gift With Purchase) not Medium! boo...boo but still good product to try and stuff in your to go makeup mini bag.
Expensive for a small amount -
I am only giving this three stars NOT for the product, its great, but for the fact that this is in the last chance and they pretend like its a good deal.
This is the smaller version that is in the 'kits' you buy. It isn't the large or even the XL. It's really small. So just be warned. You are better off buying the bigger one, its cheaper by sooooo much.
Original foundation / original beauty
There was a time in my life when I was facing (no pun) many challenges and obstacles to over come. Some little voice whispered "let's try this" as I was looking at a BE display. I was pretty convinced while watching a TV program about the products, any way. Took my bag full of goodies home, and felt like a kid at Halloween! I loved it all from start to end. ( I became an eye shadow junkie.) Everyone kept telling me how wonderful I looked. I felt wonderful! The biggest surprise: I had started radiation and chemotherapy for breast cancer at the same time! I even wore my makeup into all five of my surgeries, and most of the doctors couldn't tell. I've been healthy since 2007, and am still using this product line! Turning 60 didn't even bother me! Try it! Believe in it! Stay beautiful no matter what the future may bring you!
Never Going Back
I have been using this foundation for over a year and a half now, and I will never go back to any other! It covers, lightens, smooths, and evens, all while leaving me feeling light and natural. I love that it is SPF 15, so I feel comfortable about wearing it out in the sun without worry. Before, when i used cream foundations, I felt like they caked to my skin and clogged my pores. Now, I have no acne, hardly any blackheads, and an overall better complexion. This foundation evens out my redness and covers dark spots under my eyes quite well. It's quick and easy to apply - which I also love because I don't take very long to get ready. I'll probably never stop buying this foundation. I love that I've found a go-to, and don't have to worry about stressing to find something better each time my foundation runs out! I've already found the best!
