ORIGINAL Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15 - null
This Makeup is great
I have others who have used this product and they loved it and recommend it to me The products I have tried of what you are offering is just right for my skin type. and It doesn't break me out like so many others do
I've tried tons of mineral, liquid, and cream foundations. This is BY FAR the BEST one out there. My skin cleared up after I switched over to bareMinerals. I'm so happy with the product and I'll never go back to another brand. As some of the other reviewers have said, one container lasts for about 6 months and I wear my makeup every single day.
I don't use anything else
This is the first foundation I used and I've always used and supported bareMinerals ever since I saw them on QVC. It lasts FOREVER, so you get your money's worth. You'll love it.
Dedicated to the Foundation Broad Spectrum
I have been using this foundation for about 5 years. I love it! I use it almost every day, and a little goes a long way, so one container typically lasts me 6 months to 1 year. I love this is stuff! It covers all my blemishes and gives me a radiant look. I get consistent compliments on my "radiant" skin whenever I wear it. I never buy a different foundation (with the exception when I want to wear a liquid one). It is THAT good that you won't need to make the change. I have combo skin, so my pores are larger on my nose especially, but this does the trick in hiding them perfectly. This product never breaks me out either! LOVE LOVE LOVE BM's signature item. Dedicated for five years, and going to keep on buying!
My everyday foundation for years
I have VERY fair, acne prone, combination skin and the original foundation in fair has been my go-to foundation for years. I prefer medium coverage and natural finishes. This foundation finishes as "your skin but better", not too shiny and not too matte.
The other thing about this foundation that I love and have not found elsewhere is the way it wears. I won't say it lasts all day without touch ups, because it definitely doesn't, BUT it wears off in a natural, minimal-shine way. Meaning that 12 hours into my shift after no touch-ups when I look in the mirror, I definitely can tell the makeup as worn off but I'm not shiny and I don't have weird makeup blotchiness like I sometimes find with other foundations.
Lastly, the fair shade actually matches my very very fair, pink-toned skin! Such a difficult thing to find.
Too Legit to Quit
I love this product. Like I said in another review I've been using BM/BE Original for years. I've switched from Sephora, Mac, Loreal, Lancome all kinds of products and across the board, the pricey Macy's brands, don't really stand up to this one for me. Im 22 and I have normal skin, that gets exposed to the sun often from playing soccer. I've always been told I have beautiful skin even without this product but I swear the Original SPF foundation in Warm Deep, maximizes my faces potential. I've even landed a couple of modeling jobs when my major is business administration lol. I am a legal assistant and I see tons of people a day. But I ALWAYS get told while wearing this that i'm glowing, my face looks healthier by the day, I look younger etc..
One of these other companies would have to put a million in my goodie bag to get me to switch hands down. And I mean that.
Pricy for the size
Am I the only one who noticed that they changed the sizes of their makeup? It is SO much money for a downsized version of my favorite products. I use to love BM because of the size I got for the money. I've switched to a new foundation from a different company due to the money I was paying for BM products, which I can't believe. Please either change prices or please go back to the original sizes.
Worst container design ever
I love this product and was happy when the new design came out so that I'd be able to get to all the foundation instead of being forced to throw some away. Unfortunately, the bottom fell out of my most recent purchase.
It's a great product but it does me no good when half of it is spilled on the floor.
If you have dry skin, please read
I personally have very, very dry skin around my chin, sides of nose, and cheeks, yet very oily skin on my t-zone. This foundation seemed to really accentuate my dry spots the first time I used it. I applied the mineral veil beneath this foundation (it is supposed to help newbies not have so much itching) and just a bit of mineral veil on top. After some experimenting, I found that the mineral veil was a huge no-no for my dry skin, as it made areas that weren't all that dry look terribly dry. The application of this foundation (the buffing) is allegedly not good for dry skin as it is a form of micro exfoliation (and we dry skinned people know how exfoliation can be an enemy). You can use puffs to press this powder on, but I just really love buffing and have been trying to work around the dry skin issue because truly this foundation is amazing and makes my face look so even and smooth when I fist put it on. I really recommend dry skinned people to be aware that you may have issues with this foundation, and it may help to use a spray setter (a product you spray on after applying your makeup) and it helps set the bare minerals and reduce the appearance of dry patches. You must moisturize and use primer, or you will not have a good experience with this foundation. I will continue to try and make this foundation work for me because I love it so much and know it is not harming my skin like some foundations that are less natural.
The original that I will never live without
When pushing 40 I started thinking, you know what, I need to try something new for my face. I wasn't liking the way my skin looked dull and settled into my fine lines with other foundation products I'd been using. So after getting a little sample of this Original Bare Minerals Foundation product with a teeny tiny little brush as a free sample at a beauty store I thought, hmm, interesting, I've never tried a mineral make up before. So I went online looking for tutorial videos, learned more about the product and how to apply it and gave it a try. OMG I'm soooo glad I got that free sample because I fell in love with product from day one. I have gotten so many compliments since switching to Bare Minerals. My skin looks , I don't know, just healthier and prettier, and dare I even say. . . Younger! I love this foundation. I like a natural looking sheer-medium type coverage and this mineral foundation goes on so lovely, I love the finish, love the way it looks so natural, not cakey, not drawing attention to my fine lines by settling into them like most powder make ups do. I recommend Bare Minerals to everyone and have convinced others to switch because they saw the difference in how my skin was now looking better without me even mentioning I was trying something new. After receiving compliments and explaining what I was using that was new, other people close to me have started using the BM line too now. An additional bonus, my husband has always been complimentary but I have caught him just staring at my face more lately and saying things like, your skin looks so pretty, are you wearing any make up? It looks that natural and radiant that people can't really tell that it's make up that's making my skin look better and I love that because I am all about a natural look.
