Rated 2 out of 5 by cameella SMELL, HEAVY, OILY, INFLAMMED, OVERPRICED
LOVE bare minerals and all their products so i decided to try out this foundation. Loved it in the store gave me the coverage that i needed. maybe an hour later my face felt very heavy, and oily. Maybe 3-4 hours later my face felt very hot, and irritated. THE WORST is the smell! i can't stand it. All this negativity just from one trial at the store, also reading other reviews how the bottle is horrible, i will be returning this and not even bother giving it a second chance.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Disappointing
This product is for someone that wants little to no coverage. The product is supposed to moistirize, however with weeks of using this product I have not seen results. The bottle sucks to say the least, it is extremely difficult to squeeze the makeup out. However, when the cap is on it seems that all the foundation seeps into the lid where you can't reach it. I brought the brush up designed for this product too. Overall not impressed and will not be buying this again.

I love this foundation. It's the best I have used in years. I have had no problem with it leaking all over the place. I squeeze and the drops come out perfectly. (Is a little hard to squeeze out). No problems with the brush either. My face looks air brushed and stays on all day
Rated 5 out of 5 by AshleyMarie Perfect Coverage!
I wear bare beige 08 & it matches my medium, somewhat golden undertoned skin perfectly! I really love that the coverage is buildable & it looks SO natural & feels like I'm wearing nothing at all. I am constantly asked what I use. I thank BareMinerals for complimenting, enhancing & giving life to my face! Liquid GOLD. I highly recommend to anyone & everyone looking to get the best out of their foundation.

Can you imagine how many years this 80-year-old lady has tried to find my ultimately all-around foundation? Probably 60 of them. This formulation hit the bulls-eye for me in ease of application, long-lasting time frame without caking, and the unexpected youthful glow that brings compliments from strangers on how healthy I look.

I just received this product in the mail after a friend had been using it. Her skin always looks amazing. I always use the Bare Minerals Matte Powder foundation. I was looking for something to help cover my large pores on my cheeks and nose because the powder was not really doing this. In cosmetology school I had learned a liquid foundation should be set by a powder but I had never followed that. This morning I applied my new Bare Skin foundation and it looked so natural! It filled in my pores so much that I hardly had to use concealer. I did put some powder over the top to set it, but I may try not doing this tomorrow. What a great light-weight-barely-there foundation that fills in and covers large pores! Thank you bare minerals!
Rated 3 out of 5 by 2gogirl softer bottle, please
Love this product, but with arthritic fingers it is way too difficult to get out of its' bottle. When the bottle or container allows easier dispensing, i would like to buy again. Dispensing is either not at all or a splatters that go everywhere.
Rated 5 out of 5 by BEfanNJ Pleasantly surprised!
I've been using the original powder foundation for years and decided to try this bareSkin Serum foundation. I was a little skeptical that the 1-2 drops would do the job...but boy...was I wrong. In fact, for daily wear, I only need 1 drop per side and the coverage is AMAZING. It's amazingly smooth and applies effortlessly. So far, I am loving it and so glad I decided to try it. I am not having any issues with getting the drops out of the bottle. You just have to be do a slight squeeze in the middle of the container. Since I only need 2 drops for my entire face this bottle will last me a long time, $ well spent.

I purchased the serum foundation and the brush, which I thought was quite expensive. I like the serum foundation, but not the bottle.

Great overall coverage, and it didn't break out my sensitive skin, i would buy again.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Beulahbelle Horrible Packaging Ruins Amazing Product
I love this foundation! A small bit goes a long way, and the coverage is unbeatable. The texture and finish are flawless. Unfortunately, it comes in the most poorly designed bottle I have ever experienced. Like other reviewers, I also have the "too little or too much" issue. It either does not come out, or half the bottle splurts out. However, my biggest complaint is that the bottle is completely unusable for anyone suffering from RA, arthritis, or any other hand or joint issues. I would gladly give this wonderful product 10 hearts if it weren't for the bottle. Please improve the packaging!
Rated 2 out of 5 by Senior Bottle needs to be redesigned.
love the product. HATE the bottle. 3/4 of the time, nothing will come out of the bottle or half the bottle comes out all at once. I have arthritic hands and it should not hurt to put on foundation.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Francie Bad packaging
Love the product but container cracked within days and now foundation either spills out of crack or doesn't come out.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Monalisa1107 Best liquid foundation I have used!
I love this make up. It goes on smooth and even coverage. A little bit does go a long way. 2 drops max on the special brush, and buff it away into your skin. I will wipe a stripe of it on each area of my face and then buff away. It does not feel heavy at all. I feel it does have a lot of moisture in it. I do NOT use any moisturizer before I apply it. It is a serum so I feel that is enough for me. I have normal skin with slight t-zone oil. Overall a great product for my skin. The only negative is the bottle, it needs some improvement on how it comes out. Occasionally it will glob out, not nice drops like it should, which is wasteful. Other than that I love it!!!!!
Rated 3 out of 5 by marydixon Great foundation but...
Great foundation but the bottle is awful. As bottle leaks all over and ends up being a waste of the product. When I expect foundation out the tip of the bottle, it is everywhere else. There are times I can save some of the leaking foundation but it is a big waste of foundation. With whatever is in the bottle to shake the foundation makes things difficult to know if there is anything left or not. The colored bottle is another thing. If I am running out, I want to know and how the heck can I do it now. As much I love the foundation, I won't buy it again until and unless there is a better bottle.
Rated 4 out of 5 by weezie Love this product, don't love the bottle
The only reason I am not giving it 5 stars is because of the bottle. I have been using this product for quite a while and love the results. When buffed and blended thoroughly it makes my face look flawless, and natural. The only frustration that I have is that sometimes when I open the bottle the makeup bubbles out of it uncontrollably. I end up wasting a lot of it, and it makes a big mess. In the cap there is the tiniest stopper. I wonder if that stopper were longer and actually went into the bottle if it would stop the "eruptions" of product loss. Other than that, the product itself is fantastic and I frequently get compliments when I wear it.

I was first introduced to this product at my local BM boutique. I have very fair skin so it's hard for me to find a foundation that matches my skin tone without being too yellow or too gray. I currently wear the shade Bare Porcelain 01. This shade is perfect for my skin tone! The first few times I applied this foundation I absolutely hated it... I hated the consistency, I felt like the foundation was smudging all over my face, and the product would cling to/ bring out my dry patches (I have very dry skin). I refused to give up on this product since I've never found a foundation as close to my natural skin tone as this one. Through trial and error I realized I was applying too much product to my brush, and I wasn't buffing it out as much as I should have been. I also realized that I can't apply my BM butter drench moisturizer before applying this foundation. A little goes a long way and now I cannot live without this foundation. It is very lightweight and very natural feeling.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Love the Makeup; Hate the Mess!
I love this liquid foundation, but the bottle has some serious issues. At first it won't come out, but then next thing I know it's leaking all over the place! I have lost a lot of valuable makeup due to this stuff spilling all out of the bottle. My friend recently purchased this and I asked her if her bottle did this and she confirmed it did. If this was fixed, it would be perfect! It's disappointing that it has this issue.

I recently finally threw away this make up.
I used it one time, wasn't very happy with it, and even tried it a 2nd time to see if it was all in my head. Not only did it make my skin feel "oily" and heavy, but it also had a smell that I couldn't stand to smell on me, much less have other people smell it.
Because it had been so many month's since I ordered this, I didn't think I could return it or do anything more with it. I didn't even want to give it away or donate, because the scent is unbearable, but I will have to unfortunately give this a negative review and rethink anything liquid I get from Bareminerals going forward. Im a Long time customer and might just stick to the mineral powders
Rated 1 out of 5 by bg97223 So dissapointed
I purchased the Bareskin foundation several months ago. At first it went on smoothly and I liked the way my skin looked. After using it daily for about a couple of weeks I started to notice my pores were really showing. I never ever had that problem when I used the original powder foundation. So needless to say, I threw out the remaining bareskin foundation and went back to my original powder. What a waste of money considering that I purchased the special brush that you would need to use with the bareskin.
Rated 4 out of 5 by LurkerLee Good product when I can get it out of the bottle
Years ago, I used a variety of loose mineral products but got tired of the mess and went back to liquid foundation. I recently tried the Bare Minerals store at the local mall and was introduced to this product. I like the product, although naturally, it looked better when someone applied it on me <sigh>. With aging skin, I have a variety of darker areas to cover and this does a good job. The color is a good match for me, and I seem to have a skin tone that defies matching in many lines.
I've read the problems that others have had with the bottle. I have not (yet) had a problem with leaking... my problem is that I have a hard time squeezing the product out! Most of the time it takes two hands which means that I cannot hold the brush while I apply product to it. Would love to see a pump on this, even if it was an optional item. Also, I'd like to see a small clear stripe down the side of the bottle so it would be possible to see the amount remaining (a problem with every foundation I've used).
Rated 2 out of 5 by MyCoCo Shaken not stirred
This foundation must be shaken before use. This wouldn't be an issue if it didn't constantly bubble and spill over the top afterward. The coverage is good, though it is a bit thick. The packaging is my biggest turn off. I travel to much to have a mess of a concealer all over the place every morning.
Rated 1 out of 5 by jbolin NOT FOR ME
I was very excited to try this product but I had a very bad reaction on my face every time I used it. My face was very inflamed, red, rash and bumps. My skin burned all day and it was truly a terrible experience. Now that I have eliminated using the product my face is finally getting back to normal. I am not sure what is in this product but something didn't jive well at all with my skin. I have used the original foundation (loose powder) for years and I am just sticking with that. Also the bottle on this product just oozes out which makes for a lot of lost product and a messy situation.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Savvygramma Poor packaging
Like a number of other reviewers I do not plan on buying this product again until Bare Minerals finds another way to dispense it. I like the look and feel of the foundation when it is on, but almost everyday it is frustrating to get it out of the bottle. Other times it runs all over the place. Perhaps a pump would work better. I would also like additional colors that have a little pink undertone.

I started using this product in December and I couldn't have been more happier.
1) My skin started to feels healthier.
2) I have acne and slowly I started having less of a reaction. Plus when I went back to the previous foundation product I used more acne came back on my face. So obviously using my previous foundation production was not helping.
3) The make up is not heavy on the face. It literally only takes 2 drops on your brush to have full coverage, even when you have acne!!! This is like a dream come true for people who have acne problems.
In addition to this I started using their skin care products after having 10 years of acne and trying many different products I finally found a product that I am actually seeing progress.
I am excited to try what they come up with next.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Disappointing
I was excited to try this foundation and did like how it glided on my skin and stayed put throughout the day. However, within 3-4 days, my face broke out badly. I am 48 years old and haven't had acne like this in 20 years. It's going in the trash. What a waste of money. Use caution if you are at all prone to breakouts. Too bad.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Meg1192 I want to give it a 5, but...
I was recently introduced to this foundation at a makeover session and I fell in love with it. It makes my skin look virtually flawless, covering redness and small blemishes. And it's incredibly lightweight and requires just a small amount of product to cover my entire face. I purchased my first bottle exactly one week ago and I've already had two instances in which the foundation was running out of the tip (even though the bottle was upright on my counter) uncontrollably. I couldn't get it to stop. All I could do was wipe away the leaking foundation with my fingers and watch my money go down the drain. I hadn't read the reviews on this site until I came here tonight to find corporate's contact info, and I'm so disappointed to see how often this is happening to other customers! Is it the packaging? I don't know, I follow the instructions each time. As much as I love this product, I will not purchase it again and waste my money on something I can't fully use.
Rated 2 out of 5 by polav Great product, terrible packaging
First of all, I love the product itself. The coverage is perfect and it's very light. However, so much product is wasted when I open it because it just won't stop coming out of the nozzle as soon as I remove the cap. It's a mess and I feel really bad about the wasted product.
Rated 5 out of 5 by kktaylor Great product!
I love the look of this product. It really looks like an airbrush foundation. I've never used a foundation that looks as good as this one.
There are many people that complain of the packaging but I've not had the same experience. When I purchased it I was told to shake it well and then only put 2 drops on the brush at a time. When I do this it always flows perfectly and looks beautiful.
If I had one complaint it would be that I need one shade darker. I have to go to a different brand in the summer so I don't look like a ghost. (PS... I'm just a Caucasian girl but I tan pretty dark)
Rated 4 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Great foundation. Bad packaging.
I love this product. I will not buy anything else, it's full coverage on my skin without being to thick. With that being said the packaging is terrible, after shaking like the instructions say the foundation comes out of the top, but when you flip it over it put it on the brush nothing comes out. So that's frustrating. I hope that the packaging can be fixed without raising the price like other products!!
