Deluxe Original Foundation Broad Spectrum Spf 15 - null
I recently bought this foundation after seeing it on tv. It looked exactly like what I was looking for, something lightweight and with flawless coverage. I LOVE it! I have never had a foundation work this well and that was this easy to put on. I would recommend this to everyone I know.
Ever since i started using (random) foundations, I would use any store product that looked "OK" and I wouldn't last more than two months until I was on to another foundation. It seemed like after a while I'd dislike how the foundation looks.
About 3 years ago, I was introduced to Bare Escentuals, coincidentally my friend used the same color I was eventually tested into, and ever since then I knew I had to have my own Bare Escentuals foundation. Its been three years of using this amazing product and I still love it. I will not change it for the world because they truly work on matching your foundation to your skin tone and when applying, it leaves your face looking flawless and feeling very light. I have recommended this product to my mother and friends and they've gone to get color matched and a bit skeptical at first but all have ended falling in love the moment they look in the mirror after their color match make-under. I recommend this product to anyone who struggles with skin conditions, acne, even to those with perfect skin, it truly is magical.
Upsize Me Please!!
I love that this comes in this size. I wear makeup everyday and I like the full coverage look so the original size lasts me about half the time of a normal user. So I was pretty excited to see it in this size, I ordered the Golden Deep for myself and the Medium Tan for my mother which I'm glad I did because her color is now sold out! The only thing I dislike about this packaging is that it does NOT have the shifter so there is always a little too much product in the top when I go to use it (otherwise I would have given 5 stars), but other than that it is AWESOME! LOVE IT!!
A real bonus. I can't imagine anything better than displaying this beautify jar among my most treasured perfume bottles. And yes loose powder can be messy; but at this savings, I'm happy to do a little extra. Easily scooped a good half into usual twist lock top container to use every day. (bottom of jar pops right off) Last touch before heading out: Final touch of fragrance on pulse points, fix pout with a dab of BUXOM, and a quick dip in luxurious foundation to tame "t-zone". I sorry, but cannot understand the reviews that criticize and give low marks for inconvenient package. Saved a bundle on a favorite product, received beautiful jar as bonus.
I have been a BE woman for years as has my daughter, sister,nieces, friends…etc
I love the larger size for an excellent price! Last year I purchased and had the same disappointment with the packaging. I wish the product had the twist closure. I have kept an old container to fill and take with me when I travel. Other than that, no suggestions!
LOVE LOVE LOVE BE!
The large size is wonderful. I especially like that is does NOT have the locking top. I have a beauty on the go compact that is easily refilled with this container. When the large size is available I always buy several!
We want the click-and-go cover!
Still a great product BUT I'm so happy to read and agree that others find the design of this LARGE jar a mess without the twist cover to not only close it in travel but to control the amount that taps out when you use it. I actually called customer service to see if my jar was defective with the absence of the most useful top. It's the only negative but I'll purchase the regular size in the future because of it.
I bought this today. I've used this brand and color makeup for years - love it. This container was an amazing deal. Twice the product, the same price as the smaller size. Same great product, nothing different about it, except for three small things.
1) the case is Obviously larger, it's huge.
2) the top is really pretty, I like it enough to let it sit out in my bathroom as opposed to being hidden away in a drawer or case.
3) it does NOT have the twist-lock top. This is the one negative I have. It basically has to remain at home, don't travel with it, don't take it to work for touch ups, otherwise you'll have a big mess.
Mind you, the sheer size of it makes the lack of a twist-lock top kind of a non-issue in my mind. As I said, it's HUGE. There is no way it will fit in a purse, clutch, etc.
Overall this is an amazing deal. If you use this foundation, get it. I still have two months of foundation in my other container but for this deal I went ahead and bought more.
Cute packaging, same great foundation.
I have always been more prone to by the READY foundations, but given the size and value of this, I decided to the loose version another try. Turns out I like this much more than I used to, the difference, I believe, being that I am now using the Precision Face Brush (as opposed to the Full Flawless). It is so easy to build coverage from sheer to full, whatever you want. The packaging is beautiful - the lid is unique and very pretty, and it comes in a cute little silver box. I usually hate the look of makeup around my bathroom sink, but this actually is cute just sitting out.
Plus, the giant lid is a lot easier to swirl and tap with, in my opinion.
I would say my one complaint is that you have to be careful of it...this has the potential of becoming messy quickly. Don't drop it, or even take it anywhere, even if the lid is on. Unlike the regular, large size containers for foundation, mineral veil, warmth, etc., there is no convenient twist-lock feature to prevent powder from coming up to the top when you're not using it. Also, more so than any of the smaller sized packages, the powder has been clinging to the ridges on the sides of the lid, causing a little bit of powder to spill when opening or closing the package if I don't specifically remember to swipe around the edges and ridges with my brush first. This may be because I switches brushes - the Precision probably doesn't pick up powder from the sides as well as the Full Flawless, but I figured it would still be worth mentioning.
My complaint is not enough for me to drop my rating of this - it is still a fantastic deal - but just something to know.
In reference to NicknameGin in Freeport, Maine: I also use the foundation in Light, but want a little darker color for summer. So I mix Light with a darker color to get the right color for summer. Mixing is fun, too.
My skin is sensitive and prone to breakout, and I had to stop wearing makeup for many years until I discovered Bare Minerals. It is the only makeup I can wear now. I will mix colors rather than go without makeup or try switching to another brand. Bare Minerals is the best makeup I have used.
