Need more coverage, apply lightly over Complexion Rescue! Blends in perfectly!
not for fair skin
I love the coverage and matte formulation of this foundation, but the fairest shade looks like a bronzer with a greenish-yellow tint on my skin. The shade is extremely dark, and the tone is frankly sickly and strange. I had to take it all the way down my neck and chest so that I did not look like I was wearing a mask. I do not understand how it can possibly be meant for fair skin with pink undertones. I wish that there was a much paler shade because I really do love how it covers and I cannot think of many products that have made my skin look this clear and even. Unfortunately, the color mismatch is so extreme and there isn't even another shade I can buy to mix it with to fix it.
I purchase Fairly Light in all the powder foundation products from bare minerals and this one was no different. I am light with neutral undertones and this is a bit too dark for my skin but it is the closest I can find. Other people think this is a good match for me. This is the quickest way for me to bring down the shine of my sunblock (SPF 50) that I apply evenly to my entire face each morning. Often I will use a mineral sunblock if my face is being sensitive for the day and this helps get rid of the terrible white caste that I always get from non tinted mineral sunscreens. This is quicker for me to apply than any BB, CC, or foundation liquids and it looks and feels much more natural on my normal skin. It is not flat at all. Sometimes I will follow with a fluffing of powder too because my nose can get a bit oily. Please make this formula in a compact.
Love this concealer. It covers the dark circles under my eyes and the uneven skin tone on my cheeks.
Love this foundation
I have oily combination skin and matte finish makeup, whether it's foundation or face colors seem to work best for my skin type. Foundation and face colors with sparkle enhance my oily skin. The foundation lasts with or without primer but I think the primer makes the foundation look fresh longer. It gives a beautiful airbrushed effect with buildable coverage. This is my favorite foundation and it lasts a long time. It's definitely expensive though. I would recommend this product for women with oily skin and anyone who likes an airbrush finish.
Amazing!! Best foundation out there!!
I love bare minerals makeup but the matte foundation is my favorite! It's the best foundation I've used. I love that it doesn't feel heavy or look cakey. It feels like I don't have makeup on but gives great coverage. I have roschea on my cheeks and some acne scars that it covers very well without concealer!
Favorite from BM
This is my favorite foundation from BM. I have combo acne-prone skin. I do think this keeps me matte longer than the original and helps to blend away my pores. I am only giving it a 4 rating because I still have to blot/ reapply as needed half way through my work day. I also feel like I use a lot of this product to get coverage and still have to use concealer.
LOVE this foundation.
This is my favorite foundation. I've been using bareminerals since I started wearing makeup at age 14. About a year and a half ago I stopped using it because it is SO expensive and wanted to give liquid foundation a try...well, I've have seen the error of my ways and recently started using bareminerals again. I had forgotten just how great it feels on my skin! It's super light, and I love the way it looks, very natural and glowing, and it stays on really well. I've found that (for me) the matte stays on better than the original. I just wish it wasn't so expensive!
Enhanced lines & pores!
This stuff made my face look horrible. What a waste of money. Gritty& blotchy. It must be a different formula. I've used this foundation back in the90's & early 2000's & this stuff does not compare. It enhanced pores & wrinkles that weren't visible before. Settled into every line. Made me look much older & garish. I've always been told I look much younger than I am & have great skin. This did nothing to enhance it. Also purchased the original foundation & I would not call it original. Only slightly better that this formula. Will not ever use again.
I usually wear Medium and needed something a bit darker for the summer. This is perfect. Very natural looking and feels fantastic on my skin.
