bareSkin Pure Brightening Serum Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 20 - null
I have been using this for awhile now and found the hardest part was finding the correct shade since I have pink undertones and the colors I have tried are golden toned. I am older with dry to normal skin and found it will puddle in pores so I use a primer and that solved the problem. I work 12 hour shifts and I it stays - I do use mineral veil after applying my make-up.
I had a problem with the tip clogging and found after shaking the bottle to mix it I then tapped the bottle, bottom down several times on the counter and have not had a problem since. I wish they would correlate the shades to the mineral foundation to at least get you close to the shade family that would work for you to switch.
Just the best EVER!
I am an older women. As such I have a slight wrinkle problem as all women my age. I have tried all kinds of different makeup to try to minimize wrinkles and fine lines. A very helpful lady at penny's helped me with the problem. She introduce me to bare minerals. And it changed my life!!! A lot of people are complaining about the bottle and how messy it is and I can't understand how that happens! The lady showed me how to apply bare minerals and I haven't lost a drop. You shake the bottle before every use ( with the lid on ) Than remove the top, put a few drops ( a little goes a long way )on a make-up brush and apply to skin. If you need more apply a few more drops. No mess no drips. When you think it's used up , turn the bottle over let sit and you should get a couple of drops more ( remember , with the lid on ). Never a problem and absolutely 100% happy.
Felt like a coating on my face with an unpleasant odor. The odor lasted all day. Toward the end of the day my skin was irritated (itchy). Unfortunately, I purchased the product and the brush, which was a waste of my money. I will never use it again! If you are going to try it, get a sample. Use it a couple times before wasting your money. I am sticking to the powder!
ONE OF THE BEST FOUNDATIONS AROUND!!!!
I realize that not all foundations work for everyone but I can truly say, this foundation is AMAZING! I have tried so many different foundations in my lifetime and many of them were not the right shade, did not have the best ingredients, and where just too thick!! Finally, someone has created a foundation that considers the fact that women come in so many lovely shades, just like flowers!!! This foundation is also good for people with sensitive skin, like me. Bare Minerals have so many lovely products, I really think they are truly worth a try. This line was recommend to me by an up and coming make up artist and I am glad she made the recommendation. I take great care of my skin and have done so all my life. If you love your skin and want to keep it in great condition....TRY THIS FOUNDATION. If you are allergic to anything, that's normal. Again, not everything works for everyone, but Bare Minerals stand by their products and this is also proof of their dedication and that the AWARDS they have received were deserved. KEEP UP THE FABULOUS WORK in making everyone women feel beautiful!!!
Favorite Foundation of All Time
This foundation has become my Holy Grail and I doubt I will ever reach for anything else! I know some have labeled it as cakey, and I will admit I experienced this. I was in a hurry, put too much product in the brush, just swiped it on and walked; but if you use small amounts at a time and really take the time to buff it in like they recommend I'm sure you'll be as happy with this foundation as I am. My acne has also decreased tremendously since I started using this foundation (I haven't changed my routine just my foundation). My co-workers and family members all comment on how jealous they are of my skin and I tell them its all in the foundation :)
I do highly recommend getting color matched in a boutique, or if unable to get to a boutique really take the time to check the color against your skin tone in different lighting. The color I was reaching for was not even close to what ended up being a perfect match for me. The girl in my boutique was amazing though, and my color is Bare Shell.
I have light skin w/ freckles, rosacea tinged cheeks, strawberry blonde hair, and I can get a faint "golden" tan in the summer (I've been told I'm a pain to color match lol).
I got this product about 2 month ago and i loved how it applies on; its like your putting nothing on. As a couple hours passed it starts to detirate in certain spots like by my nose and in the t-zone, so you will have to retouch throughout the day depending on what type of skin you have. Also it has a dewy finish so if you do not like that just throw their mineral veil over it to make it look matte. Overall i like the product and its very build able
Made me breakout
Thank goodness I tried a sample first - nice light coverage but all day it felt slightly slick to the touch & made my face break out in little bumps after a couple uses. If you've been using their powder foundation & are curious to switch to liquid, I recommend trying a sample first. I use Fairly Light in powder & tried Bare Neutral in this liquid which was a good shade match for me.
I will not buy the full size of this formula & will stick to BE's loose matte foundation powder - at least the ingredients list for that stays true to their original motto of "makeup so pure you can sleep in it" (which I do with no adverse affects).
I had been wanting to try BareSkin for a while and finally pulled the trigger when my Original powder foundation ran out. I am beyond impressed! The coverage is amazing for my rosacea and minor breakouts, and it looks so beautiful and natural. I did learn that it looks best over an oil-free moisturizer, my BB with sunscreen was too sticky and it didn't lay right. Finished with Mineral Veil it lasts on my combination/oily skin most of the day. It rubs off on the nose and chin, but I think if I was better about touching up with Mineral Veil throughout the day it would minimize this. Overall, I am sorry I waited so long to try it, I don't think I'll ever be without it!
I absolutely loove this foundation. It makes my skin looked soo natural. Sometimes i do like to add the mineral makeup over so that it makes my skin look amazing. This is definetly one of my faves!!
Awwwwwwwesome! Singing the praises!
This is my favorite foundation of all time. My skin is starting to look a little older (I'm 42), so the powder foundation was getting just a teeny bit visible. I put this kind on and was a little shocked at first because it is *so* correcting that my skin looked completely different. But after a few days of using it, I'm used to having nearly flawless skin again. My only complaint is that the SPF is a little heavy. But what are you going to do? Not wear SPF? I think switching to a non-SPF moisturizer is going to make this foundation utterly perfect. One note: your skin must be well exfoliated. Otherwise the makeup shows.
Awsome new product
I love the personal touch when visiting a store. I tried this product for the first time and loved the coverage. I have redness and a scar to cover. It worked great. I would continue using this product.
I love this product! But the bottle is a disaster! Wastes product by spewing all over the place for no apparent reason. This is very frustrating! If I'm going to spend $30 on foundation, I don't want half of it a wasted mess all over everything except my face!
Please fix this, or I won't be purchasing again.
please except one thing.....
I love everything about this product except it has a bad tendancy to grab my mascara and glue it to my cheeks, even after using touch up powder over it. I use the total domination mascara and love it but i think im going to stick to your powdered foundations and concealers.
Very disappointed in this product. Very oily so it oozes everywhere. If you travel with it, expect a mess. If you just leave it on our counter, expect a mess. They say only use one drop, but since it oozes everywhere it's almost impossible to get one drop after a few uses. If you happen to get more than 1-2 drops on your applicator brush you look like snooki. It's so messy and because of its ingredients, it makes you look white in pictures. Will not buy again and I should be out soon since most of the product is all over my counter or makeup bag.
Best foundation Ever!
I am not usually a liquid foundation wearer, but lately the Primer plus powder has been making my skin look dry and flaky in places and it goes oily in others. I thought I'd try this when it was recommended for a "sheer" look. It's awesome! Even my husband complimented me "on the way my makeup looks." And he never notices anything. He couldn't pinpoint the difference, but said I looked "healthy and glowy." Ok, so he's no Shakespeare. Still, the sentiment was there. It stays all day and I love it.
Best Liquid Foundation I've Ever Had
I have had many liquid foundations over the years and most of them covered your face instead of blending in. This feels light on your face, it doesn't cake on, doesn't leave makeup lines under your jaw. It is so smooth, a little goes a long way. I don't use the brush. I use my fingers. Love it.
beyond my expectations
This liquid foundation lives up to all the hype I've heard and more.
I have a combination of oily skin along my T-zone and normal for the rest of my face.
Long story short, there is little to no powder needed, no touch up's needed, no streaking, no patchiness, and no dryness.
It has very full coverage, is seamless, practically invisible against my skin, and does not budge even after an intense workout.
HIGHLY recommended to those who are looking for a well formulated liquid foundation.
I have never owned a liquid foundation. I've always thought they would be too heavy and because I have very sensitive skin Ive stayed away from them. My sensitive skin is what has made me a fan of the mineral foundation since I was 19. I'm almost 25 and notice my face becoming very dry in the winter so I decided to put my fears aside and try a liquid foundation from a brand I have loved for some time now. I was blown away by how lightweight the foundation was and how little product I needed to use to achieve a flawless face. One again bare minerals has created a product that has amazing results for my skin and i will continue to use this product for years to come.
I have been eyeing this foundation since it came out but I was afraid to spend the money and then hate it. My in-laws purchased it for me for my birthday. I can honestly say it is better than I expected. I have acne and scarring and I feel like it goes on smoothly and looks beautiful. I actually still feel pretty at the end of the day.
Great for contact lens wearers
There is a slight odor initially but not so bad. I like that you can build on it for coverage and watching the videos really helped. I use the brush that is specifically designed for this application and start with only 2 drops on clean and moisturized skin. I pinch the brush together so the foundation sets down a bit lower so it does not glob on. Then I go a second round with another 2 drops the same way for perfect, medium coverage. I have also used the tinted mineral veil over it with the large brush. This older girl loves it!
Very light texture and finish, but oily
Nice color, finish and texture. However, it's too oily for my skin (T-zone really greases up and shows my pores). Nice on the dry areas, though! Will probably not re-purchase unless it comes in a formula suitable for combination skin.
I am not usually one for reviews, but felt as though this product deserved one. I have used the powder foundation for many years now and decided to try something new. This foundation goes on so lightly and easily, while providing generous coverage. I LOVE the way it feels and would highly suggest this product to others.
I also own this I like the light coverage, i don't like the smell, tho.
I was pleased with the sample so ordered full sized bottle & brush. First off, there was an odor to the make up - don't know if it was old or if the odor is standard (I mean unpleasant odor). It was so pronounced that I could smell it on my face while at work. I'm 64 so I don't have line free skin. I was horrified when I looked in the mirror maybe an hour after application & my face looked like cracked clay from a long drought. When I'd used the sample, I applied with my fingers & also the sample didn't smell, so I don't know if the brush was a factor or if there was just something wrong with the full bottle. And speaking of the bottle - I shook it as directed but squeezing out the makeup took a lot of effort. Twice I squirted makeup on the bathroom floor.
Oily skin beware!!
Seamless coverage, GREAT for yellow undertones such as myself, really hard to find good foundation with rich, yellow undertones. Only need a couple drops for your entire face so it goes a long way, unfortunately the packaging is poor and you'll lose a lot of product shaking the bottle. I found shaking it side to side vs. up and down helps minimize product loss.
Broke me out horribly, if you have oily skin, stay far away! :( I really wish I could love this foundation.
I have to have complete coverage when I am singing in my group on stage. This product went on so seamlessly, i was totally taken by surprise. We do shoulders, ears, back of the neck, cleavage, etc. Stage lights wash you out.
I used this product on a visiting dignitary and had her made up in a matter of a few minutes! This is amazing!!!
Excellent choice for my 30 something skin
Tried the sample that came with my last order and immediately wished I had ordered this instead of my usual Ready foundation. Application is easy with fingers. Coverage is build able, which I like. Smoothes out my uneven skin color and texture. Only cons are the messiness of the bottle and that the makeup seemed to disappear during the day.
I had high hopes for this product as I am getting older and have more to conceal than I used to. I love the original foundation because it felt like I had nothing on and had great staying power. This feels like all liquid foundations I have tried in that I can tell I have it on and feels like a mask. I don't see that it covers any more than the original foundation.
I haven't had the trouble with the bottle that others have had but I will say it is hard to squeeze the bottle and get just the number of drops I want.
This product has potential but still needs some rework in the delivery system and the formulation.
Wonderful feel and great color for my skin..
I am a woman who wears make-up sometimes. I really like a natural look. Imagine my surprise when I found this wonderful foundation in a Bare Porcelain #1. It provides a gentle coverage that makes a wonderful palate for blush, lip, and eye color. Then out the door I go. I have read some of the complaints about the packaging. My solution is take the cover off, hold the container with your finger over the open end, shake, then apply two or three drops to your brush, and apply to your skin. This way you do not end up with any mess in the cover. I always store the container upright too. There are not enough words to say how pleased I am with this Pure Brightening Serum Foundation. P.S. I am 70+ years old.
Not good my skin
I really wanted to love this foundation. I was so excited when the makeup counter consultant at the boutique put me in the chair to try this foundation and blended easy into my skin. I was happy to pay for it and take it home. Unfortunately after 2-3 months of use my skin can not handle this foundation. I looked at the ingredients and it has way more than the original powder foundation. I had my skin looking great and now I am breaking out again. I would not recommend this if you have sensitive skin.
