Rated 5 out of 5 by rebeccaCO Used for 10 Years = amazing skin
I am 29 years old. I began using Bare Minerals foundation when I was just 20 years old. 9 years later, I am constantly getting compliments on how youthful my skin looks. I recently went to the dermatologist, and she asked what I use for my face because she can tell I really take care of my skin. I've just recently began using an additional sunscreen beneath my SPF 15 bare minerals foundation. All I've really ever used on my face is coconut oil and this foundation in Original/fairly light...for 9 years. I have sensitive skin and if there's a time I run out of my foundation and try to opt for something cheaper, I immediately break out. Using Bare Minerals long term has been the best thing I could have done for my skin. No wrinkles or crows feet yet (part genetics but mainly because bare minerals has protected my skin). Spend the $28. It's really does do what it says it's going to do. As long as Bare Minerals is around, this is what I will be using on my face.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MakeupHobbyist 4 years and counting...
I've been using this foundation exclusively for 4 years now! The coverage is very buildable, lasts all day, and feels soo light on my skin. It's very nourishing and doesn't clog my pores, which has improved the clarity of my skin tremendously. I have oily skin so I do have to blot my t-zone while wearing foundation but the makeup stays put all day, regardless of how oily or sweaty I am! I do have to buy two colors at a time (fairly light and medium beige) and mix them in order to get the desired color. Wouldn't it be awesome if you could have a color custom mixed for you at their boutiques?! Anyway, I think I found my forever foundation. Thank you BM!
Rated 4 out of 5 by Summerwind57 Easy to use
this covers well without looking cakey almost like a second skin. I had to exchange it for the matte version which I absolutely love. I found the original a tad too "glowing" which is not a look I was striving for, of course others may like that look, it lasts almost all day. I had tried BM a long long time ago but did not like it decided to try again the color medium beige is a perfect match for me I love how it covers without settling in the lines I threw away all the other foundations in my "collection" will be using this for a long long time( in the matte version)
Rated 4 out of 5 by lalinah Move over Liquid Foundation
Back in high school, I used to wear mineral foundation but found that it wasn't giving me the coverage I wanted or needed. Ever since, I've been a fan of liquid foundation and currently use Bareskin everyday...it's the best foundation I've found so far for my skin. But with my recent purchase, I was sent a sample of the Original Mineral Foundation and decided to try it. I think I love it just as much! You can add as little or as much powder to the brush to get the coverage you want and I was pretty satisfied that it hid the slight redness to my cheeks and forehead just as well as the liquid!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Best Clean-feeling makeup
Great for sensitive skin, covers as much or as little as you like and yet feels weightless on. As a previous L'oreal mineral user, there is no comparison. It may look the same but it is not the same quality. My skin texture has improved and the blemishes from the inferior makeup have disappeared.
Rated 5 out of 5 by India789 Found my Match
Up until 10 years ago, I was purchasing my foundation from a company that custom mixed your shade because I could not find a good match.
I have found my a perfect match for both my winter and summer skin colors, which are dramatically different. It is also important to note that the shades I require have not changed since I found my colors. Thanks BE!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Rocky Fantastically right!
I've been a faithful customer of BareMinerals for over ten years now. Since this product and out however, I've noticed that a) my skin is clearer than before, and b) I get more compliments on my skin and how it "practically glows with beauty".
Thanks for the amazing make up!

I really enjoy the light weight and feel of BM products. I use the original Med. and my skin looks flawless. I really appreciate natural looking beauty & BM delivers it.
My only CON is... some of the jars don't have a (turn cover) not sure what its called. lol!!
I purchase a larger Original foundation with some other powder products and its the WORST to travel with. I try to tap tap tap it back into the wholes. Not good! Hope someone who designs the jars places a turn cover on all size jars.

This is the only foundation that doesn't break me out. It lasts so long because a little goes a long way! I recommend it to everyone I talk to about makeup with.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer The Best!
I've been using the original foundation for over 2 years now it has great coverage and you look natural I love it!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Kacie luscious and smooth
I have waited to use bare Minerals for a while and the waitng was worth it. I used the foundation along with a sample of the primer and veil and the foundation just glides on. It looks like I don't have anything on my face at all. I was hot and sweaty and my face stayed smooth. I love this product.
Rated 5 out of 5 by irma Amazing and natural
I rarely do make up but I became a fan already. This is super natural and gets even better in terms of coverage through the day. Also good for my acne. Other products made it worse but this did't. I loved it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RRRosie This foundation is a godsend
I've been using this foundation ever since they added the Fair shade. Nearly two decades, I belive. I'm very fair, and the shade Fair is as dark as I can go without looking ridiculous. I really wish BareEscentuals would add a Very Fair or Porcelain shade, at the very least.
Other than that, this has been an absolute godsend. From my early teens to my early-40's I had super oily skin. On top of that, I'm very fair, with neutral undertones. I have many allergies to fragrances and ingredients, and sensitive skin. Finding a foundation was a nightmare. It was impossible to get the right color, with the right undertones, that wouldn't oxidize or melt off (esp. in the days before primer existed). I had given up till I heard about this foundation.
This doesn't bother my skin, doesn't make me break out, doesn't melt off in hot weather or from oily skin, doesn't oxidize, doesn't feel heavy. It DOES look natural, feel weightless, control oil and shine (especially when paired with the Mineral Veil), cover blemishes and imperfects. It has very buildable coverage.
Now that I'm in my mid-40s, my skin is still oily, but not as bad. Hormones frequently make it break out or have weeks where my skin is more combination. This foundation is very adaptable to whatever condition my skin is in. It's my HG foundation and my beauty savior. I cannot say enough good things about it.
Note: It does contain Bismuth Oxychloride. I'm not sensitive to it (surprisingly), but a small percentage of people are. If you are, try the Matte version.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Love this!
This foundation has worked amazing. It gives the flawless skin look with minimal effort. I have repurchased this item about six times. It doesn't clog my pores and it doesn't look caked on when applied, like some other foundations I have tried.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Bbrooks One of my favorite foundations
I have combination dry skin and it's very difficult finding a foundation that doesn't cling to dry patches. This foundation has so many shades so there's a match for everyone and it is so buildable that sometimes I use it as a concealer because it doesn't show the dry patches like a liquid concealer does. The only thing to keep in mind is that if you need heavier coverage than this offers (light to medium coverage with the initial application), you should use a finishing spray so that your face doesn't look powdery. However, this is honestly one of the best foundations for so many types of skin.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Simply the best, better than all the rest.
I started using BM foundation about 3 months ago after a couple of friends swearing by it while I was constantly buying very expensive foundations and never loving any of them. I started out using way too much and I can tell you exactly why: this stuff is undetectable on the skin, its amazing really it honestly looks like my skin is perfect but it far from it and I'm 38 years old. I was putting on too much and it caked in my pores and lines but after I started just doing two complete buffed layers it is flawless. I tried the matte too and I do not dislike it but I love the glow of the original. My skin is also so much better from getting away from the chemicals in the other brands. I have since switched all my makeup and skincare to BM and I'm here to stay, I will not be testing other brands. I look back at pics of myself and if I didn't know any better I would swear I did not have any makeup on, I love it so much.
Rated 5 out of 5 by MegfromCali Always come back to it
I can't even remember when I first started using this foundation, but I know that I always come back to it. I used the Ready foundation for awhile, then came back to this. Depending on the brush I use, I can make it to be light coverage and even a pretty full coverage. Whenever I get compliments on my makeup, I'm using this. Love this stuff and I'll continue using this for a long time.
Rated 4 out of 5 by SanHut Great product!
I love the powder foundation so far! Depending on your skin type it is necessary to choose from the original and matte formula. I have found that the Matte works better for my skin type. Overall this is a great product and I am very happy with it!
Rated 5 out of 5 by BEMichelle Perfect everytime
I began using this foundation in my twenties, now in my late thirties this foundation remains the only one I've used. It gives my skin a natural yet perfect look. I can buff it on quickly when I have to get out the door or I can take my time, contouring with different shades to be photo ready. I've never had any issue with this foundation, it performs for me each and every time.
Rated 5 out of 5 by ChrissyMKE The best out there!
I have been using bare minerals foundation for 11 years! Every once in a while I try out a different foundation from a different brand just to mix it up and I always go back to bare minerals the next day. You don't feel like you're wearing makeup, It has great coverage,It doesn't clog your pores or make you break out, and it has a great sheen to it wear it doesnt matte out your face losing its contours and dimensions like any other full coverage foundation or powered does! Im a lifer :)
Rated 5 out of 5 by mpleiter Perfect in every way
I have tried every foundation out there, I have combination skin that is prone to breakouts due to hormones (so not much will fix it). This foundation is the best thing I have ever found, I have never bought a foundation more than once, and Ive bought this three times already. The small container is not expensive and will last me up to 3 months of regular EVERYDAY use. That's incredible, I never have to touch up my makeup either, instead of sliding off, this foundation just seeps into my skin and look better throughout the day making my real skin look natural and perfect during the day. The minerals in the foundation itself have really helped even out my skin tone making more comfortable without makeup on. I don't even have to buy a concealer because I can just use the foundation with a concealer brush to fix trouble spots. I just dab a little stroke of light brightener under my eyes. I will never use any other foundation besides bare minerals. I am a serious believer I love everything they make!
Rated 5 out of 5 by LoMo THIS STUFF IS AMAZING
This foundation is absolutely amazing! I have had some skin troubles recently so when I went to the dermatologist we talked about what foundation I should be using and when I told her that I wore bareMinerals she said that was always her first recommendation for patients that are suffering with skin troubles because it doesn't contain all of the harsh ingredients that most foundations contain! So, not only is this foundation good for your skin and recommended by a doctor who specializes in clearing peoples faces but it also gives the most amazing coverage! Because of my recent term visits I started using different creams that dried out my skin a lot and before I was really oily! But this foundation looks amazing on me when I am extremely oily and when I am extremely dry! So do not shy away from this product just because it is often marketed towards people who have drier skin! I love looking flawless but I do not want to be able to feel my foundation on my face and my mom's biggest pet peeve is when she can tell that I am wearing foundation! So when finally found a foundation we can agree on with bareMinerals! I also just want to say that if you aren't sure about your shade (self matching is never really that great of an idea trust me!) go to a boutique and they are always so helpful! It is one of the only makeup stores I actually enjoy going to because I feel like they aren't trying to pressure me into buying a whole bunch of stuff that I don't need!
Rated 5 out of 5 by LostinMT Wonderful
I've been using the original foundation for 11 years. When I first saw an infomercial for BE I thought there was no way it could work as advertised. Then a friend tried it and raved about it. So I tried it. WOW!!!! I have bad skin and even at my age (61) I still have breakouts but not as bad as before and I credit that to BE. Even with my oily skin it stays on all day, doesn't cake or crease, or turn an unpleasant color. I still thank my friend for introducing me to BE!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Adore this!
I've been using bare minerals original foundation for the last decade and I absolutely cannot live without it! It offers excellent coverage and is very easily applied. Quick, easy and looks flawlessly natural, not fake or painted on! I love this so much!
Rated 4 out of 5 by MrsLynB best make up i've used so far!
I've tried lots of make ups, and its really hard for women of color to find shades that match well. Bare Minerals is the best foundation i've used thus far and will be the last. It looks great in multiple shades, and I have tried about 4 and even when they weren't my exact match they looked great. But i was able to eventually find my match -Warm Tan which i will wear until discontinued..... hope that never happens.

I have been wearing Bare Minerals foundation for about 15 years and this new product I just received is just as high quality, easy to apply, easy to remove and looks so natural. If you want a fresh weightless foundation then this product is for you! It's perfect!
