ORIGINAL Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15 - null
This is the best foundation I have ever used. I went into a BM store about a year ago just to look and ended up getting a makeover. I was a makeup artist for a company in a department store before, so I know a lot about makeup, and I didn't expect to like this. The foundation looks like your skin, but better. It is amazing! I ended up buying the starter kit and learned how to apply it from the person that applied it. I won't go back to anything else. It is flawless!!!!!
This is the most amazing foundation. It goes on very lightly and doesn't feel like I'm wearing anything. It makes my skin feel so soft and velvety. I absolutely love it. I don't have acne-prone skin, but it completely evens out my skin tone and covers up any blemishes or spots. It blends so lightly and evenly. It's amazing.
I had tried this foundation twice before and just really hated the way it looked on my skin. I didn't understand the hype and being too lazy to mail it back, i kept it stashed with my other makeup. Lately I've been going for a more minimal/natural look that is quick to do every morning and I cannot stand liquid foundations. They never look quite right on my skin so I reached for this foundation again and have applied it with a light hand in thin layers and finally found what tone matches my skin best and I have to say I really love it. I feel as if my skin's texture is improving and it makes my face look pretty flawless without screaming that I have makeup on. Easy application, lovely finish AND improves my skin, what more could I want in foundation?
The Cadillac of Makeup
The key to applying this foundation is true to it's "how to" video; "Less is more." Can't be emphasized enough as far as I'm concerned, because if you use too much then you'll look like you are wearing way too much makeup, like clown makeup. It took me a while before I learned how to apply it correctly. Now, I've got it down and my face looks fabulous and naturally beautiful and that's saying a lot because my imperfections are plenty! Moreover, I've been battling breakouts on my chin something terrible! Since I started using this foundation everyday, no more breakouts! I haven't changed my diet or anything else in my life; so, I am sure that this foundation is the reason! I am nothing short of amazed! Also, I apply the Bare Minerals Primer original 5 minutes before I apply the foundation, which I love too! Thank you Bare Minerals!
I LOVE the original foundation!
This product exceeded all of my expectations! I tried the original foundation and the Ready formulation, but I loved how luminescent the original foundation is. I like a "dewy" look, so I apply moisturizer and then the primer (takes a very small amount), followed by the foundation. I love how easy it is to apply and how there are not many steps; it's just so simple. What I love the most is how easy it is to customize your look. Usually, I prefer to use the warmth without the mineral veil because my skin looks better with a certain glow and a little less coverage. However, sometimes I do use the mineral veil in addition to the other products and love the full-coverage smoothness it gives my face. Also, when I am in a hurry and don't have time for eye makeup, it takes less than 5 minutes to apply my foundation, warmth and mineral veil; and in today's busy world, who could ask for more? On a side note, when I went to my favorite coffee house the other day, I noticed that the barista had flawless skin; I asked her if she was "air-brushed," and she stated that she used Bare Minerals. She looked like a porcelain doll and it was obvious that she used the Matte foundation along with mineral veil, which I confirmed, and used the tiniest bit of warmth as blush. She looked celebrity perfect. I would have taken a picture if there weren't customers in line behind me. :-) Bare Minerals is changing the face of make-up, literally, and changing lives. They have gained another "customer for life!"
Best Foundation Ever!
I bought a get started kit about three to four years ago and still have the same foundation that came with it. It lasts a long time! Love the feel on my skin. It has helped my skin. I will be buying again and recommend it to everyone!
Back to my bare minerals original :)
I have been a loyal bare minerals user for over 8 years now.....it is the only foundation in the world that gives you a flawless, airbrushed appearance without feeling like you have a mask on!!! It's lasting power is second to none,as I am a server, and after a a 12 hour shift, I simply swirl a brush on me face and my face looks perfect again!!! I had switched to the ready formula as soon as it was released...at first I liked it, gives amazing coverage, but after a little bit it would look cakey, and it highlighted my imperfections such as dry spots, large pores, wrinkles, and scarring as opposed to blurring them....I was considering switching foundation brands, but with my love of bare minerals, I couldn't bring myself to do it, and I'm soooo happy I did not switch!!! Now that I'm back to my trusty original formulation, I'm definitely back in love!!! I missed the luminosity if the original,and I missed my face feeling like it had no makeup on it....now that I'm back to my original, I know I will be a bare minerals user for life!!! And, on a side note, for those who have never tried it, DO IT!!! It's worth every penny, and bare minerals has the most amazing customer service ever!!! REUNITED AND IT FEELS SOOOO GOOD!!! :)
Proud to Wear This
I have loved this product since the first time I was introduced to it by a friend, and I can't seem to find another foundation that even half way sparks my interest. Others are trying their own versions of this because they know it's so good. Stick with the leaders of the movement!! My goal is to look natural and this allows me to do just that. I don't have to use very much--the starter kit lasted me four years. For those of you who don't wear much make-up but want it to be quality when you do--this is THE choice.
Perfection for your face!
Bare Minerals foundation is absolutely perfect. They weren't kidding when they said you'd see results on your skin. Not only does the foundation have a no-makeup look and feel, but it lasts a whole eight hours. It hides imperfections too, and evens out your skin tone as well. What more can a girl ask for from a foundation? Perfection.
NEED MORE COLOR CHOICES!
Great foundation and coverage, looks very natural BUT there needs to be a neutral undertone color between fairly light and medium! Every year or so I check back in hopes new colors have been added, but alas I'm let down once again.
