ORIGINAL Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15 - null
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!
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).
The perfect lightweight foundation. It feels like you are not even wearing makeup, but still has nice medium coverage.
I started using Bare Minerals 7 years ago and don't use anything else. It looks so nstural. I even got my friend using it a year ago and she loves it. It just feels light on my face. I plan to stick with this line best makeup I've ever had.
I do wish they would fix the pump on the prime time bottle.
I have used this foundation for many years and absolutely love it. I am always getting complements on my "beautiful skin" and being asked for my secret to looking young (I'm 72). I have few wrinkles, but this product really helps hide my flaws and evens out my freckles. It is a must have, as far as I am concerned.
The product itself is great.....just wish it wasn't so expensive
Love, love, love!
I have used Bare Escentuals for many years for a reason. I love the way they apply without feeling heavy or looking cakey. This foundation is no different. I love how it looks on. I chose a matte this time and I am so glad I did!
Favorite for 7 years!
I started using this foundation in 2008 and I haven't used anything else since. NOTHING works like this stuff! I barely need to use any, get medium coverage (hides blemishes but leaves my skin looking bright & natural), and since it's full of great ingredients, my skin has cleared up completely and I have a nearly perfect complexion these days. This foundation helped & allowed my skin to heal entirely. I barely get any oils now, and my skin is so balanced. There is nothing else like this out there!
I really like this product. I had been using a name brand cosmetic for years. In a desire to use healthier products on my skin, I went to the Bare Minerals store and had a makeover done. The feel of this foundation is fabulous and light and I love that it has SPF in it. I have very pale skin and burn easily. I feel secure in knowing that I have this protection every day.
I feel healthier already in my skin care...now if I could only do the same with food!
Consistently perfect foundation
I have been using bare minerals foundations since the beginning when that's almost all there was in the make-up line. The mineral powder coverage has never let me down even as I get older, I'm 62 now. There is no feeling of heavy makeup or fear of lines or wearing off. The color blends magically with my skin and I just go one shade darker in the summer to create a pretend tan. Somehow it's fun to use the powder foundation although I can't explain why. The only con is that the online Bare Minerals website does not accept PayPal. so my
midnight shopping in bed when I can't sleep doesn't include trying out new stuff from Bare Minerals because my credit card is in my wallet in the kitchen...someday...
Great coverage, long lasting, lightweight, beautiful, smooth application!
This foundation is perfect for me. I like a minimal amount of coverage and a very light feeling foundation and this was it. You can easily increase your coverage by adding more product but it never feels like you have so much product on. After using the product for a week I noticed my skin looked better. I've used this foundation since I was a senior in high school and am still using it as Junior in college. So easy and fast to apply especially running from class to class. I think it works all season round as well.
Fresh Looking Skin
I've been using the Bareminerals Original Foundation for years now. It provides amazing coverage but somehow still looks like natural skin. It does need retouching after a couple hours but a light dusting fixes that right away.
Tooo small for the price
I thought I was purchasing a full size product but what I received seemed to be a travel size. What happened to the size of the product?? Very disappointed!
I have used this foundation for years! Still love it. I have roscea and it really helps.
This foundation covers - yet it doesn't look like I'm wearing makeup! It doesn't FEEL like I'm wearing makeup. It just makes my skin look fantastic. I'm 60, so I have the usual wrinkles and skin color variances, but this foundation evens out the tone, doesn't accentuate the wrinkles (something I was concerned about with a powder foundation), and yet feels light and natural. The ladies in the store helped me pick out the perfect color, so there's no "makeup line" that I have to blend. I love it!
I have been using this foundation for five years and all I can say is it's wonderful and has never let me down. In the beginning I did find if I applied it too hard or roughly my skin would get a little itchy, but as long as I apply a bb cream or moisturizer first it works well and holds the foundation a lot longer. It matches my skin perfectly and I ALWAYS get compliments on how my skin is glowing or perfect! I've tried every otc drugstore mineral powder out there and none of them have the velvety smooth application the way bare minerals does. The way it sets into your skin is just flawless it feels like your not wearing makeup at all! I will always use this foundation for as long as I live! Thank you bare minerals!
I would never go back to any other foundation or bronzer.
I have been trying for a while now to find a foundation I really liked and finally decided to try BareMinerals. It is very light on my face and feels like I'm not even wearing anything, it lasts for hours, and I have already seen an improvement in my skin.
Light, smooth covering makeup
I have been using this makeup for about eight or nine years, and I simply will not use anything else. At first, I thought it would look like a powder on my face, but it did not. Even someone over 55 like me can use this without accentuating lines in your face. The best results comes after using the foundation primer and the moisturizer. I have dry skin and you really cannot tell with this foundation. I love it!
Very happy with this product
I've been using this product for around six years now. I like how I can shake out the amount I will use and apply it properly with a brush to smooth and even out my skin tones, yet it looks natural. I have sensitive skin and this product has never irritated my skin which means the world to me. I have never found it to be blotchy but find a little blotting around crease lines may be in order if I haven't been careful in application. Copy cat products do not work, don't waste your money, this is it.
Love It NOW!
I really like this foundation but I did not at first because my skin tends to be dry. I found after using the beautiful finish brush and a really good moisturizer (I like Ponds dry skin formula) this foundation will work great for dry skin.
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.
Just r recently purchased this and love it already goes on smoothly wonderful coverage it is my go to now!!
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!
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)
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!
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.
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!
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!
