Rated 4 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Love this stuff!
I love the original Bare Minerals foundation! It gives my skin such a healthy and illumious glow while looking natural. I feel that it looks it's best if I apply it after I wash, exfoliate, and moisturize my face. I reccomend using the heavenly brush which is my favorite! This foundation works the best in combination with the rest of the Bare Mineral products such as the warmth, radiance, mineral veil, and I like the corrective concealer. By using this foundation it has actually improved my complexion.
The only downside for me is when I use it in the winter months when the climate is harsh here. My skin gets very dry and the foundation doesn't look as good as it normally does on my skin and usually I have to switch from the loose powder to a BB cream. This year I am trying the Complexion Rescue during this season.

I had been experimenting for awhile with different types of foundation, and this one was the clear winner. With most liquid foundations from other stores that I tried, it wouldn't last long or it didn't blend well with my light skin tone and made me look orange! This foundation doesn't clog my pores, looks incredibly natural, and does a great job of covering any red marks or zits on my face! Also, a little goes a long way - whereas with other foundations the bottle won't even last a month.
Rated 3 out of 5 by CxRenee LOVE the product HATE the container!!
I have been using BE for years! I absolutely love the product. It covers without making it noticeable. I have noticed the change in the new container. I can not begin to say how much I hate them. The bottom has fallen off of mine several times, each time spilling the foundation EVERYWHERE! This morning I lost half of my container and it is very frustrating. Do I give up the foundation I have loved for so long? Or do I use duct tape on the bottom of it?
Rated 3 out of 5 by WhiteGold Beautiful but causes breakouts, defeating the purpose.
First, the good. After years of hearing about this product I finally gave it a try, and I thought this it lives up to the hype. The powder is so fine that it disappears on the skin. The finish is very natural, and the color selections offered a perfect color to minimize redness in my skin. I'd never found a foundation that matched so well, felt light on the skin, and looked almost invisible.
Unfortunately, I won't continue to use it. After a couple weeks of light use, my skin broke out in dozens of tiny pimples in the areas I applied the product. This despite being in my final month of accutane, which had eliminated my acne. An absolute deal-breaker for me. I noticed a few other reviewers had the same problem, so take heed.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Morg Poor coverage- disappointed
I bought this product after they discontinued my other foundation. It makes me feel scaley in my oily area and doesn't hide blotches on my face. Would never order again
Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Best Makeup Ever!!
I love this foundation it's the perfect color, covers up my acne breakouts pretty well and doesn't irritate my skin! Definitely worth the extra money compared to other foundation. I love the great value of the large holiday edition as well! My only advice is not to order online since they use a slow shipping service by FedEx it will take FOREVER to get it! Which if it's your first time using bare minerals, it's best to go to one of their locations so you can find the right color for you with the samples they have available.

This is my absolute favorite foundation! It lasts me about 3 months and I love the coverage I get from it!

I have been using this for over 20 yrs. Best foundation ever & you don't need alot. Lasts for about 5 months used daily.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Girl18 Natural Gorgeous Coverage
My skin can't handle any other foundation simply because most others have bad ingredients. I've been using BM for years and it gives great coverage (if blended correctly) and a gorgeous healthy glow. The coverage is delicate, just enough for me since I hate, hate makeup that looks caked. I mainly apply it to any redness on my face, cheeks, nose, and chin.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Clean, fresh coverage.
I love the fairly medium. In my 50s and this gives very nice, clean coverage. I was using medium but changed to just go a little lighter and covers well.
Rated 5 out of 5 by kristinjconnor Best foundation. Ever.
I have been using BM original foundation for nearly ten years. When I began using the foundation, my skin was uneven in color and texture. And I was prone to breakouts-even as an adult. Changing to BM has improved the condition of my skin overall and I have much fewer breakouts. I love this foundation because it looks natural, and your skin looks naturally glowing. I have tried the matte version, but for women who are not so young anymore, or who don't have naturally radiant skin, the matte version can make your skin look dull. I heard a rumor that the original foundation line may be discontinued and I hope this is not true because this is the absolute best product on the market. Please keep this product. There is nothing else like it and nothing else I want to wear.
Rated 5 out of 5 by kelbe773 My old standby
I started using this product 4 years ago with a try-it-and-buy-it radio offer, and I have yet to find anything I like better. This foundation has great coverage, especially for a powder, and leaves even my always-breaking out skin looking glowing and healthy. I feel like years are lifted away from my face every time I use it. I doubt I'll ever switch.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer The Best
Have used this foundation for years. Simply the best. Recently tried some new liquid foundations from other companies, and I was quickly reminded why I love this so much. By the end of the day with the liquids it was the same old story. It was separating and all over, and my face broke out. I will continue to only use BareMinerals mineral foundation. The original is still my absolute favorite.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Lara Great product , packaging needs improvement
Provides great coverage and lasts all day. The container lid does not come off unless you're willing to pull out the pliers resulting in wasting powder.
Rated 5 out of 5 by paleispretty Never fails
When I finally ran out of my Bare Minerals Powder foundation while living in a foreign country, I tried all kinds of other options. I spent so much money trying other products only to be disappointed each and every time. Lesson learned. From now on I spend my money on what I know works beautifully with my skin and complexion. Thank you, Bare Minerals, for a truly fabulous product!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Ronae Original Foundation user for life!
I have been using Original Foundation for 16 years. When I first tried it, my skin was in really bad condition. I had constant breakouts and a lot of redness. I tried numerous products and spent a lot of money, but all these products only made my skin condition worse. Then one day I saw your infomercial and my husband said, "Why don't you order it?" I am so glad I did. With the first application, the original foundation was like a healing balm to my sensitive skin. I was amazed at how it easy it was to use and how it covered the redness and breakouts. It felt so light on my face and looked so natural. As I continued to use it, my skin began to heal. Even now at 61 people still tell me I have beautiful skin. I am a user for life! Thanks Leslie!

This product is worth every penny! It makes me feel so beautiful when I wear it! I covers every flaw, while feeling like I am not even wearing any makeup. So in love with this product!
Rated 5 out of 5 by tiffbytiffany The Best Foundation I've ever purchased!
So, i bought this foundation originally at Sephora and the color they matched me with was terrible and also they did not SHOW me how to apply it the RIGHT way... When I visited their store in Palo Alto, CA the girls there walked me through, step by step, how to apply it - (it's all in the buffering!). Ever since, I've been using it for a week, and it's amazing how beautiful my skin looks- and NATURAL. It doesnt look like I'm wearing any make up, it feels beautiful, and glides on beautifully. I love liquid foundation as well, but this is def. something you want when it's your days off or want to give your face a break from heavy foundation.
What a great buy!
Rated 5 out of 5 by GreekSalad Never changing foundation again
I never thought I would end up being such a fan of a specific foundation. Best coverage ever, just a little quantity and I look like I have been airbrushed. Plus: so lightweight! I am literally recommending it to everyone I know, just buy it already!

This product is the greatest foundation i have ever purchased. It covers all my dark spots and makes my 64 year old face look years younger. Thanks for this and all the other products you have created, love them all.

We use different colors, but the results are the same, remarkable. it looks so natural but covers all our flaws, It is light and I don't feel made up. it stays put all day. I am totally satisfied!!!

I have been using this product for years! I can remember one of the first times using this product. I put it on in the morning had a long busy day and didn't have to touch up at all when going out at night. I was sold!
Rated 5 out of 5 by kimba2 Summer go-to
I love this foundation in the summer months. It allows for great coverage control which I especially appreciate this time of year when I often just need sheer coverage with a polished look. When I want a little more coverage to last all day it takes the heat beautifully, maintaining a natural finish.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Probably never changing my foundation again!
I was so interested in makeup from a very young age, but my dad was very reluctant to let me use any... until I was about 15 and my older cousin suggested I start off using this foundation. She assured me it had a very natural look, feel, and ingredients. I have used it off and on for about five years now.
There was a period where I would use drugstore brand foundations (because I was cheap) but I found that 1) I could never match my color perfectly and 2) my skin would break out terribly. So about four months ago I switched back over to bare minerals original foundation and I don't plan on changing anytime soon! I use foundation about 5 days a week and I still have a good amount left!
The powder is so light feeling and natural looking! I was always skeptical about loose powder makeup because I always feel like it won't stay or something, I don't know why. But this stuff definitely stays on. Especially when paired with the foundation primer! And on top of being so natural feeling and looking, the color (medium beige) is so true to my skin. It doesn't have the pinky and orange tones that I always find in liquid foundation. This stuff is amazing! 11/10 would recommend.

I wear this in combination with the bareskin concealer over my lupus scars..blends seamlessly and evens my skin tone..finally a foundation I'm happy with.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Surprisingly Effective Product
I am almost 20, with acne and a face that is pinker than the rest of my body. I'm constantly trying different medications and remedies and I thought this would be nice to try because it wouldn't make me break out more. Surprise! I got a yellow-toned foundation and it easily covers even the most pigmented acne and looks so natural, even my critical, perceptive mom's been complimenting me on my clear skin. It just looks better if you take a nap in it or wear it the whole day, and my acne has actually improved since I started using this product. I've only had it a month, but I don't think I'll go a day without it again. Plus I haven't even made a dent in the amount of product! This is a wonder/miracle foundation for me, and I'm shocked I didn't hear about it until now and there isn't more stuff like this on the market.

Ladies, listen up. I am 68 years old and when I go out wearing my Original Foundation, men are still checking me out. And I don't mean the ones my age. I mean men much younger than me. Which is why I am, and will always be, a life-long fan of the Original Foundation (plus, I can mix two shades to get a perfect match).

My sister suggested this makeup a long time ago, I was afraid of change. I was so use to wearing thick full coverage foundation that made it obvious that I was wearing makeup. I was afraid to touch my face, and I was also nervous to hug people for fear of getting makeup on their clothes. I love this makeup, the coverage, and I am not afraid to touch my own face anymore. It takes much less time to put this makeup on than any other foundations I have ever used. One other thing I love, I have light skin with freckles, and this foundation matched my skin very well.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Samm Feels like I'm not wearing makeup
This goes on so smooth and feels like I'm not wearing anything. It makes my skin look flawless but still very natural, no overly madeup.
