ORIGINAL Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15 - null
I've always wanted to try Bare Minerals after watching infomercials for YEARS and finally treated myself and all I can say is - WOW! I will NEVER go back to another foundation. I took my new foundation to a conference with me and was standing in direct sunlight by a window visiting with two women whom I had never met, and they BOTH complimented me on how flawless and beautiful my complexion was. I am 43 years old and that was the first time I was ever complimented on my complexion and it was all because of the fact that I was wearing Bare Minerals.
Really like, but...
I don't wear foundation much, but when I do I use this product. I really like everything about it. My only complaint is that is seems it intensify the small wrinkles around my eyes in which I hate. When I go to reorder, I will try the matte finish to see if this might be a better choice for me.
I originally started using original foundation when I first started using BE almost 5 years ago. It gives a beautiful, glowing, no-foundation look to the face. When matte came out, it gave a more beautiful photo finish than the original--only reason it gets 4 stars! This foundation is great!
I'm a die hard bare minerals junky! : )
I've been using bare minerals for over 4 years now. I have very dry sesitive skin. Before I was not able to wear make up as often as I would have liked and when I did, my skin was dried out and left rough and patchy from other products. The first time I used this product I noticed how comfortable it felt on my skin and how finished and polished it made me look. It lasted for a long time and it was easy to remove. I have yet to find another product that I like more than this. Nothing has come close. Yes this costs a little more than regular retail make up. However, this product lasts for a long time and you definitely get what you pay for, 10 x's over. Not to mention I get so many compliments on my complexion constantly and because of that I have converted many friends to this product. If bare minerals were to ever stop selling their amazing products, I would be heart broken for life. I love love love this product!
The Original works best for me
Love the way this foundation makes my skin look. I've used this for many years and it still works really well with my aging (53) skin.
Only complaint is in the new packaging. Having the pull-tab instead of the original cap really makes it difficult to get the last of the product out of the container.
Got to have it!
Earlier (Pre-menopause) I had very sensitive acne prone skin. Bare Essentials worked better than any other make ups I'd tried. Now that I'm 52 and past menopause acne isn't such an issue any longer. After applying sunscreen/moisturizer and then BE powder foundation I look simply natural. I was just told 3 days ago how fortunate I am that I only need a bit of lip, color and mascara! Believe me, I didn't give away my secret! I do however, have my 29 year old daughter using BE and she can't believe the difference!!
Bottom line....thank you for a wonderful product!
Beautiful coverage, undertone is wrong
The coverage of this product is wonderful, but the undertones for my particular shade (Golden Dark) seemed off... it was supposed to be for darker skin with yellow-olive undertones, but when it oxidized, it was too red for me. I really wanted it to work, but I'm afraid I'll have to get rid of it.
Returning to Bare Minerals
I used to use Bare Minerals years ago, but with job losses I foolishly stopped using it. I am so glad I came back to it. I probably have 5 or 6 bottles of liquid foundation that I use for a while and then buy something new because I fall out of love with it. This is not the case with Bare Minerals. It goes on so lightly, and you don't use much, so there is actually more value using this.
I am 48 years old and since I started using Bare Minerals again, the praises are coming in. People ask what I've done, that my skin is glowing, and I just tell them simply "Bare Minerals!" Thank you Leslie for making a wonderful, tried and true, best friend!!
I began using Bare Minerals about 5 years or so ago, when I was getting off hormones. I perspired so much that liquid makeup just ran off my face in streaks. I just couldn't stand to wear liquid makeup any longer. I tried Bare Minerals and it was wonderful! I felt like I had nothing on...but looked good. The perspiring seldom messed up the makeup and gradually stopped. I could no longer stand to wear liquid makeup. I haven't worn anything but Bare Minerals Foundation since, and probably never will. I love Bare Minerals Foundation! Feels good, looks great.
Best Make Up Ever! Lasts for 6+ Months
Honestly, I have always wanted to try out Bare Minerals. One day about 7 months ago I went into a Bare Minerals store and I've never looked back since. I finally decided to take the plunge and spend the money...it was SO well worth it! I have 2 foundations because of my mixed complexion (the sales people were SO helpful in picking my colors!) and I use a mix of them both every single day. This make up has lasted me SEVEN months and for the first time in my life I'm down to an empty makeup container! I've never used an entire container of makeup before. At first my skin felt dry because I was used to liquid foundation but it did not take long to adjust..So soft and so awesome! Coverage is great and it lasts forever if you know how to use it right..
Buy it! You wont regret it.
