Rated 4 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Perfect colour match
I have medium - dark skin tone, also on the normal - dry side, find it very difficult to get a color match even in brands like MAC that have a huge shade range. Golden tan is a really good match for my skin tone. Gives me that radiant look that I love. Except that sometimes it accentuates the dry patches under my eye, otherwise I love it! Lasts a really long time for me since I don't use make up on a daily basis.

light was a perfect match also bought #7 in the liquid and the cream skin plus mineral viel and warmth plus warmth radiance. Love the eye concealor too tried during a makeover in the tube. looks better than the pot cream I have been using too. loved the eye color and palette plus lip pencil and eyebrow loose color. I can not wait to get the products. Love the one day a year for !5% personal day and I have just joined fab program and I am suppose to get 10% off soon.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer 10 years and counting
I've been using this product for over 10 years and will never wear another foundation (I'm now 29). This product covers great but isn't heavy. I had issues with breakouts before, but this product is actually good for your skin instead of the regular foundations you find in other stores. I feel like this product actually lets my skin breathe and do its thing, instead of weighing it down with harmful/random chemicals. I use this over the complexion rescue tinted moisturizer now, but have also had great success with a small amount of BB face primer under it. Plus, SPF to reduce wrinkles later in life (for all you girls in your late teens and 20s... Start now with SPF, you will be glad you did when you hit your thirties, your skin will thank you).

I have been using this for over a year. I have rosacea and was using Merle Norman. My face continually broke out and burned. Since this, my brake outs are rare depending on what is gong on in life, but the make up does not burn it, or make it worst. The coverage is very good and my face is never oily any more.

I have been using. Bare Minerals for many years. Love it! It is great for my skin and looks good, too.

I have been using Bare Minerals for over a year and a half now, and I couldn't ask for a better product! I have very sensitive skin and I have had troubles in the past with other makeup. This is the first product that I have not had any irritation or breakouts! It provides long lasting coverage and has a very light feeling! I would HIGHLY recommend this product!
Rated 5 out of 5 by cb123 LOVE this foundation
I've struggled with blemishes my entire life and this foundation covers any blemish flawlessly, works as both a foundation and concealer and improves my complexion. I've never used a foundation that doesn't make me break out, but after using bare minerals for three months I haven't had a breakout and my skin has never looked better!
Rated 5 out of 5 by mrspeed wonderful product!
finally took the risk on mineral makeup and extremely glad I did! I will never wear a liquid foundation again. the coverage is perfect!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Beautiful full coverage
I've been using this product for the last 7 years. I have very sensitive skin. Could never put regular store bought make-up on my skin. I break out easily and my cheek would get so red. But with this product my skin feels free. It's able to breath. And I get that full coverage and it last all day. I have naturally rosy cheeks and this foundation helps cover it up and turn my face into a beautiful glow. And also this product covers so easily that it could last up to months of wear. Mine could last me up to 6 months or more.
Definitely recommend this product to everyone !!
Rated 5 out of 5 by kathcuddle Love this foundation!
This is the first foundation I have ever used that looks completely natural and doesn't cake up. You never look like you are even wearing the foundation yet it somehow gives great coverage and hides flaws.
Rated 5 out of 5 by LoveNY88 THE best foundation
After all of the commercial hype and my best friend using this make up I had to give it a try myself. Turns out all of the women who were saying "you will never need any other make up" were telling the truth! bareMinerals is definitely in a league of its own. I have to thank Leslie for this incredible foundation! I have been using it for years, have not found better. The container is fairly large and lasts quite some time (you don't need much per application). It applies best when used with their brushes (I use the full flawless face brush for this particular foundation) and "start from the outside and work my way in" by swirling from the outer cheeks in towards my nose and chin. The most amazing thing about this make up is that it feels like you aren't wearing any make up at all but offers great, natural-looking coverage. In my experience it is never cakey.
I am of South Korean descent and have been using Medium Beige. I recommend getting shade matched in a boutique prior to ordering online if possible since there are so many different options it can be difficult to find your "perfect" match. However, like a previous customer mentioned bareMinerals is great because even if you don't get the exact match to your skin tone a close enough one blends right in and you can lighten or darken depending on the season using All-Over Face Colors/Brighteners and Warmth. Remember, the warmth is fairly deep in hue so a little goes a very long way!
I have yet to try the matte version, not opposed it it however my skin is combination so I'm not sure. I love the original with its unique consistency as I have not been able to find a pressed powder that comes close to this. I believe this is make up revolutionized! Forever an avid fan and customer.

I LOVE this foundation. It does not feel heavy or thick. You really do feel like you are wearing little or no foundation. Also, I never have to keep reapplying this foundation which makes me very happy!
Rated 5 out of 5 by missy1 original foundation Broad Spectrum spf 15 Fairly medium.
I have been using this foundation for many years now and It's the only foundation that I will use, it not only last for ever but it never expires. once you get the right color match your hook. at least I am . and over time it does improve your complexion it keeps it clear. because It has simple Ingredients in it. so try it you will not be Dis pointed in it.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Best foundation ever
This is the best foundation I have ever used. It provides anywhere from sheer to full coverage when applied properly. It is undetectable on my skin and looks so fresh and radiant. It is so light feeling. The staying power is awesome on my normal skin type. I have been using this foundation for 10 years and every time I try something different I end up disappointed. It applies amazing with the synthetic seamless buffing brush.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Makeup Staple
The example incites "best purchase ever." I'm not sure I can really deem it THE all-time best, but it is wonderful. I've used bareMinerals original foundation for, probably about, a decade now and refuse to switch. Golden Medium is the perfect shade for me during fall and winter months, and one container lasts me that duration. Thanks, bareMinerals. Appreciatively, Loyal Customer.
Rated 5 out of 5 by DHSC The Best Foundation
Every once in a while I switch to another foundation but I always eventually come back to Bare Minerals. I've been using the original for over 15 years!
Rated 5 out of 5 by BlondeBeauty Radient, natural foundation!
I have finally found a foundation that is perfect for me! It provides great coverage! So much that I don't even wear liquid foundation under it. This is the first time that I have worn a powder foundation by itself and I love it a million times better than anything I have ever tried. It is also buildable which is amazing too! The main thing that I love about this foundation is it doesn't have that pinkish tint that a lot of liquid foundations have. Also I don't really like a mat finish, and this foundation provides a warm glow that makes my skin just light up!
Rated 3 out of 5 by Wichelle Its just foundation
I like this foundation, but it is nothing special. I like a fuller coverage so i find myself using a little more then you need to. This product is much better if you use a different brush then what they recommend.
Rated 5 out of 5 by DiamondD I've worn this foundation for years and love it
I have received nothing but compliments whenever I wear this foundation. People constantly tell me that my complexion is beautiful and don't realize that I am wearing make-up. Natural looking and a great product.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Merrie Great coverage
It is a great lightweight coverage. My face has a smooth soft look, with no cakey makeup feeling. I have found that using a good primer, helps with fewer touch ups.
Rated 4 out of 5 by qltgrl like product, not packaging
I've used this product for several years and am happy with the outcome. I am not a fan of the packaging. Being frugal, it frustrates me that the twist top doesn't stay closed when I reopen the outer cap. That results in an excess of powder in the outer chamber of the container that usually spills. And the fact that there is no possible way to get the last remaining bit out of the jar without breaking the plastic cap. I do not like paying for a product that I cannot get out of the container. It's a waste of money and cheats the consumer.
Rated 3 out of 5 by TiredofBM Decline of Bare Minerals
I have used bare minerals for a long time, 5+ years. Unfortunately the price is continuously rising and the quality is not (it's actually a bit worse). I've noticed that they rarely have products in stock for my skin tone, somehow my online purchases are later cancelled rather than back-ordered. Their customer service is likewise disappointing, both in store and online. And in general, I do not find their new products to be worth purchasing. As a reflection of the brand itself, I am no longer supporting any of their products. The 3 stars are for what the brand and this product used to be.
Rated 5 out of 5 by workinggirl7 I would not use any other foundation product on my face.
I have been using Bare Minerals Foundation for two years now, and I will not use anything else. I will go without food before I go without this foundation. I have very fare skin, and it gives me a porcelain, flawless complexion.
Rated 5 out of 5 by redhead96 I Love It!! <3
This is my favorite foundation I've used. It looks completely natural but has great coverage. It also never makes me break out. I would definitely recommend it for everyone!!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Floridagirl007 Foundation from Heaven!!
After many, many years of trying product after product, and being unhappy with all of them, the answer is clear. Bare Minerals Original Foundation with SPF 15. I have used this foundation for 20 years, and will never change! You all know those days when you are running late and rushing to get ready, Bare Minerals Original Foundation with SPF 15 saves you every time! I can put it on in less than a minute if I have too, and still look natural and flawless to the world! Love this stuff!!
Rated 5 out of 5 by KaylaWayla In Love with Original Fairyly Light
I love using the original fairly light foundation! I can use a little bit for less coverage or more for full coverage, whatever I'm in the mood for. It's a perfect match for my skin and I think it has a great finish. Of course it goes great with all kinds of other Bare Minerals products as well!
Rated 5 out of 5 by TayNicole LOVE my BARE!
I love my Bare Minerals! I work at Ulta Beauty Store, which sells Bare, and I always get asked what type of makeup I'm wearing. I get SO many compliments on how my makeup makes my face look like porcelain (which every girl loves to hear)! Now, the first time using the loose powder, I wasn't a fan, because it was messy and I couldn't understand the sifter and shaking it into the lid, concept. BUT have no fear ladies; it's not hard to learn. I wish the sifter part of the container was a little easier to open, but more of a minor detail with how great this product covers. I have normal skin with a fair amount of breakouts, as I'm getting through my 20's stage-stress may have a factor but nonetheless, this powder plus the concealer, are to die for! I never leave the house without both! I have never had a concealer work so well against my breakouts, but using that then applying this foundation, you're guaranteed to have that porcelain look! Pairing these two products together is a must! Highly recommend!
Rated 5 out of 5 by SuzQ Love it!
I have used this foundation for 10+ years and will never look for anything else. I am now 74 and feel this product helps keep my skin young; most people are surprised to find out my real age. I love it- both the foundation and the compliments it earns me!
Rated 2 out of 5 by Sara098123 It was ok...
It was ok. There are better foundations out there. It was a bit too shiny for me, so I may be better off with the matte formula. The coverage was also not as good as I was expecting, but that may also be due to the brush. I have read a lot of reviews about how the right brush can improve the look of this foundation, so I will try that in the future (I am going to wait a bit for a sale though, as it is extremely expensive).
Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Perfection
The perfect lightweight foundation. It feels like you are not even wearing makeup, but still has nice medium coverage.
