bareSkin Pure Brightening Serum Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 20 - null
I really like this product except for the fact that most of the time after you shake it it erupts like a volcano. I have lost a lot of the product. I now use a Q-tip to use what has erupted but it does not cover flawlessly once it becomes a little dry. I have found that when you shake it up and put a drop in the brush you recommend to use it is an unbeatable product. However, when 9 times out of 10 you cannot use the product properly because it gushes out of the bottle I hesitate to buy another one and watch my money go down the drain. As much as I like it when working properly, I will try another brand.
Not good for oily skin
I told the sales person that I wanted a foundation that would cover and not make my face oily and break out. This is not it. My skin looks worse with it on. It's extremely oily and it creases easily so I have lines of makeup on my face and don't even know it. Even with primer, it's almost as if it doesn't stick to the skin and is just sliding on top of it. Would not recommend. I'm returning it.
I really do like this foundation. I don't wear make up daily because I don't have to. But when I do, I don't like my foundation to have that weird, fake, powdery look. This foundation doesn't do that and I love it.
The only thing that seriously upsets me is that the foundation for some reason will just leak out of the bottle! Especially when it asks you to shake it before application, I think air gets trapped inside and so the foundation will just seep out like crazy. Or, I can't leave it in my make up bag because it moves around. So when I go to open it, it just leaks out like a volcano. I think I might've lost almost half of this bottle just because of that! Its SO annoying and wasteful. Especially when this small bottle is $30!
I am reconsidering even purchasing another one when the time comes because of this issue. And its not an infrequent event, it happens every single time I try to open the bottle. Even when I have it standing, (I stopped putting it in my make up bag to try to see if that would help the seeping) and it still does it.
Seriously Bare Minerals, there needs to be a solution to this.
Absolutely love it!!!
I absolutely love this foundation. It has great coverage. I can't complain at all. I will continue to buy this. Thanks to the ladies who helped me in the boutique :)
Love this stuff! You do not--I repeat--DO NOT need to use a whole lot. I got almost full coverage with maybe 2-3 drops. I have really oily skin, so I'm looking at mainly wearing this in cooler weather. But it feels extremely light on my face, and it does not clog my pores. If you ever feel you put on too much, just buff it out with a clean fluffy brush! Definitely recommend! :)
Perfect make up for me, I can apply it super quick and easy. Only bad thing is in the middle of the day my face looks oily so I have to carry blotting pads and sometimes when I shake the bottle some foundation oozes out.
This is the best makeup I've ever used. Light and easy on my skin. Has a natural look and feel. Two drops gives me optimal coverage. I do set it with a press powder to give it a more matte look. Last all day!
Not so great
I bought this product in store the lady did try it on me and I loved it At first after buying it and using it for about two weeks broke out on my face really bad
I always have to have this product in my makeup bag.
Nice smooth coverage with this lightweight foundation. It can be used for everyday where.
This stuff is good in theory but is a complete mess. I have wasted so much of this due to the poor packaging. A lot of the product has ended up in the cap and leaks from the bottle. In addition, the special brush needed for this fell apart completely after only a few uses. I will definitely not be purchasing this product again.
This product goes on smooth looks very good at first and after a few hours it's a mess...makes me look like I have grease all over and my mascara rubs off making me look like a racoon
I have always been a fan of liquid foundation and I was ecstatic to hear that BareMinerals came out with their own. My first thought was how lightweight and smooth it felt on my skin! Not to mention, you can get great coverage with as little as a couple drops. I found that 5 drops is the perfect amount for the coverage I'm looking for. I have a pretty noticeable scar...when I'm done applying to my face, I'll take one sweep with what's left on my brush and the scar nearly disappears. It completely minimizes the redness just like that. My only complaint is that sometimes it's hard to squeeze some of the product from the bottle and that the bottle is not clear so you visibly cannot see what's left inside. All in all, love this foundation!
Almost, but no...
I thought I was going to like this foundation a lot. I had it applied in store and thought that it looked great. I ended up spending good money buying the product with a starter kit. It wasn't but maybe three hours after I left the store that I checked out my face to realize this products seemingly good coverage DOESN'T LAST LONG. At all. So disappointed. I wish I would have stuck with the loose powder.
smooth, good color selection, great finish, great coverage, buildable coverage, lightweight
I am so happy I decided to try this foundation! It's so light and looks so natural. ^_____^
I will tell all my friends.
This foundation has changed the way I look at make-up. It gives me the flawless, radiant, sexy looking coverage I've been looking for but all with good stuff inside. It goes on smooth and looks great after application. It's great if you want to wear make-up all day versus for only a couple of hours. Love this. Will definitely purchase again.
Great foundation once you get the hang of it
This is a great foundation, but people seem to have a hard time with application. It is essential to shake this up before use and mix it really, really well. Every time. It separates out very quickly and won't stay mixed for the next time you use it. A little goes a long way. My favorite way to apply this is to put a few drops on a beauty blender-type sponge, dot it on my face, and smooth and pat it in.
I have very fair skin with neutral undertones. It is usually very oily. Bare Porcealain 01 is a perfect match.
I really, really love having this in my foundation wardrobe. Most of my life I've been super-oily, and the only thing I could use was the Original Foundation in Fair. I'm now in my mid-40s, and my skin changes on a weekly, if not daily, basis. Usually I'm still pretty oily, but I go stretches where my skin is closer to combination. I also get hormonal cystic acne breakouts. This foundation is a perfect every day foundation for when I don't want or need powder foundation, but still need some coverage. I find it has medium coverage, but it can be built up to more full coverage. It give the skin a healthy, flawless appearance that is dewier than powder foundation.
I am so happy I decided to try this foundation! It's so light and all you need is a couple of drops and you're all set! My skin looks amazing and believe it or not after the first use my skin looked just as good without it. I don't think I will use any other foundation again. An absolute must have.
I love this foundation!!
I normally do not spend a ton of money on beauty products but happened to visit a Bare Minerals store with a friend. I bought this on a whim and I am so glad I did. I love everything about this foundation. The texture, the coverage. . . My hubby even noticed it. I walked out of our bathroom after getting ready and he said "your face makeup looks really good". haha I just finished my first bottle and my skin looks great. I have less redness and flakiness. I just went and bought some more.
Love this stuff!
After using the powder foundation for several years, and loving it, I finally tried this liquid and love it more! Great coverage (blonde with freckles) goes on smoothly and lasts all day. I was a little hesitant to spend the money on the brush but it really adds to the process for a really smooth look. Thanks BE
I have dry skin and was always a BE mineral powder gal. But this stuff has better coverage and helps keep my face moist. The brush is amazing!! I've got this in two shades, one for warm months and one for cold months. My only complaint is sometimes the foundation bubbles over out of the pinhole opening for no reason.
DISAPPOINTED! NOT for mature skin with pores
I bought the Bareskin and the special application brush and anxiously awaited receiving it. It goes on beautifully BUT, if you have visible pores it's a disaster. It settles in the pores and it's impossible to do anything about it. I tried using my Bare Minerals Bisque for a first step. Nope. I've tried every tring I can think of and haven't found a solution and I'm so disappointed. It goes on so easily and feels so smooth and natural. It's just not for me. If you have young skin or beautiful poreless skin you will love it.
I was really interested in BareSkin after an e-mail I got so I went down to a tangible location to see if I could see what it was all about. First of all, everyone in any bareMinerals store I've ever been to is incredible. I asked them to tell me about their experiences with the product and they gave me a generous sample and told me that if I didn't like it I may prefer complexion rescue (spoilers, it's probably my favorite thing in the world) so I went home and tried it. Now these people are wonderful at matching your skin tone, but this was just impossible. I saw the options online and figured they just did the best they could with what they had to work with. I applied it and I will say it stays put which is really nice, but it's so heavy. I felt like my skin couldn't breath. I left it on for about an hour before I couldn't take it and washed it off. This is a rare miss for bareMinerals.
Before you buy this, or anything really, I urge you to go to a store and talk to the people there. They really do just want to make you feel your best and find the right product for you.
74 and flawless
I use two drops of non oil moisturizer and two drops of the new serum and mix together and brush on my face for an all day flawless complexion,,,beneath the make up is un-even skin and some pretty deep wrinkles from being outside playing golf and tennis...good coverage, thanks!
Get the dang brush! > worth it♡
This foundation is amazing for people with sensitive skin. I have acne prone skin and some scarring that resulted from it, but this covers up all of my scars and any current blemishes with one application. My face looks flawlessly airbrushed. I've bought BE matte powder foundations before, and this product blows that out of the water.
Because of the formula, YOU WILL NEED THE MATCHING BRUSH. If you don't want to spend your money on a makeup brush, then don't bother to buy it. The foundation doesn't spread right without it.
Not your best effort BE
This foundation isn't great. I haven't tried many products that I don't like in the BE line, but this is terrible. The colors are really off! Nothing in this line matches my shade and it doesn't absorb into your skin. It sits on top and feels cakey. I was really disappointed because I wanted to love this. Please fix the shades!
I love this product!
Since starting to use this product, I have gotten many compliments on my skin tone, and people are amazed when I tell them I am wearing makeup! Applying with the perfecting face brush is a must!
I'm very pale. I thought I got the right shade. It looked good in the mirror. In natural light I looked orange. Maybe my fault, maybe the product, but I wasn't happy with it. Also needed a lot more than the recommended drop number to get full coverage. I won't be buying this product again.
I never wear liquid foundations, I always stuck with Bare Minerals Original Foundation but this stuff is amazing... very light feel and the perfect coverage. I don't understand any of the negative reviews! There is very little smell and it applies perfectly. I definitely recommend using the precision face brush to apply... I think that this one works the best.
Glad I tried this.
I used to wear the bare minerals powder foundation in my 20's and 30's but after 40 it didn't work well on me anymore, seemed to "settle in the lines". I saw a woman at a cookout and her makeup looked beautiful so I asked her what she was wearing and she said the pure brightening serum so I went to Ulta and found my color (ironically same as hers), Today is the first day I wore it, but it went on smoothly, I loved the coverage - just right, even had it on this afternoon for a spin and yoga class and it help up well. I have sensitive skin so time will tell on that, but so far I really like it.
I find this to be one of the best foundations I have ever used. I have stayed away from liquid foundations because I found them to clog my pores. This is not the case with bareSkin Foundation.
My one complaint is that it is very difficult to determine when the product is running out. I believe either a clear container or maybe a clear strip along the side would be beneficial.
