ORIGINAL Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15 - null is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 306.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE LOVE LOVE!! I already have a little acne so the last thing I need is foundation that will clog my pores and make it worse. This stuff is great for my skin and lasts all day! It takes me 5 seconds to apply and is just amazing. I will never use anything else.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is Awesome!! I LOVE this foundation SOOOOO much!! Because I have sensitive skin I can only wear BE products. It is the perfect amount of coverage without making my face look like a mask. Maybe you aren't using the right brush for the amount of coverage you want if you don't get enough. One time I was at a friends house and I touched up my foundation using her Drug store foundation. NEVER again will I use anything else but this! while hers was waxy and made me look like I was made of plastic (and hurt my skin), this foundation gives you coverage without looking like you have any makeup on at all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good For Your Skin Foundation I used to prefer liquid foundations b/c I felt that they just looked more natural but guess what...I always come back to Bare Minerals!! There is no doubt that it is better and healthier for your skin and actually improves the condition of your skin over time. Even at 39, I still continue to have issues with acne and sensitive skin...it's unbelievable that I still have to deal with this so liquid foundations just don't work for me...BM is really the only foundation that I can wear daily that does not clog my pores and exacerbate and cause more breakouts. Seriously, I don't know what I would do without BM. I have found that Bare Minerals is the closest of all the brands out there to a natural finish. It has a luminosity without looking fake that is without comparison. Anything that helps me achieve that youthful glow is a winner in my book. During the summer, I mix a little golden tan in with the golden medium to get the color just right -- it works really well. Other positives: it's so easy to apply, impossible to mess up, blends flawlessly, awesome application brushes...the list goes on and on! I also love the well rested eye powder. It's the only eye shadow that really does make your eyes brighten up and look more youthful. I love Bare Minerals -- it's definitely a must have and I don't ever leave home without it on my face. What an awesome product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from original foundation This foundation is amazing. I started using it 4 years ago and I will never use anything else. It covers flawlessly, effortlessly. It matches my fair/light/hard-to-match skin perfectly, and a little goes a long way, so it lasts a while. People compliment me, but they usually say "wow your skin looks great" - makeup is never mentioned :) I am only 25 but I don't want to look like I'm wearing alot of makeup and this is perfect. I recommend bareMinerals to EVERYONE I know!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thankful Bare Minerals was invented! So great! I can wear one color during the summer (medium tan), and blend in a little of a second, lighter shade (fairly light) with that one for the rest of the year. Coverage in unbelievable. Makes my skin healthier looking and even toned. If I wasn't 52, I'd say flawless, but let's be real! I do look younger because of it, but mostly, I just look like I have good, healthy skin. I despise makeup...except for this. It only takes like two to three minutes to put on properly. Blends in, stays on, and nourishes the skin somehow. Amazing...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing and Healthy for your skin! This foundation is amazing! I have been struggling with acne for year and love this mineral powder foundation that doesn't clog pores and is so light you forget your wearing anything! I love the fact that it is good for your skin and doesn't contain any bad chemicals (like most foundations) and they offer a wide variety of shades for all skin types. My sister and I have been wearing Bare Minerals for years and I recommend it to all my friends!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best foundation I will never use any other brand of foundation. The original foundation provides full coverage while being light and allowing your skin to breath. It makes your skin look natural and flawless. This product is a must-have!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wonderful feeling, could use more coverage I switched over to Bare Minerals after some convincing from my roommates- a handful of them wear it. I love the feel when buffing it on, it feels like I am not wearing any makeup at all (which I had gotten used to for my entire freshman year of college). I love the radiance and light Bare Minerals adds to my skin. My friends compliment me often on how natural my skin/make up appears. I believe my skin tone and texture have actually improved with use as well- tone is very even and the texture is very smooth and soft! I give this foundation only 4 stars because I love the way it feels and looks, but I wish there was a bit better coverage. My acne scars and blemished do not even come close to being covered, but the foundation does minimize it a bit. I have recommended Bare Mineral products to every girl I have met since- especially those with sensitive skin- because the product feels so amazing. I have switched multiple ladies over from using Mary Kay products even (personal victory dance).

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Weightless! The foundation is extremely light. It doesn't feel like I have a layer of make-up caked onto my face and it gives my skin a flawless and natural look without having to put a lot on. The container is great with the the movable/closing top so that the make-up doesn't spill out all over the place. I had been struggling a lot with my skin looking cakey after putting make-up on because of my extremely dry skin but I feel that this foundation has actually helped to prevent my skin from drying out and flaking. The size of the container was larger than I expected which was a nice surprise! I gave it a 4 for 2 reasons. The first is because I felt some of my pores because more noticeable with this product however I fixed that by adding a light layer of tinted moisturizer underneath. I am used to wearing a liquid foundation so changing to a powdered one has been an adjustment for me. The second is because I find this has too much of a glow for my liking. I would prefer it for a night out but during the day I feel I will go with the matte next time as it is the look I am more accustomed to. Otherwise I love the product and will continue purchasing it ... and will definitely recommend it to all of my friends! :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Skin Perfection I have been using the Original BM foundation for a good long time, and I get so many compliments on my skin. It has converted almost anyone who asks from liquid foundation over to BM. I love the luminosity this gives. I have fair skin. I like to mix Fair & Fairly Medium with Flawless Radiance & the blemish treatment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You must try this make up!!!! My daughter had been trying to get me to use bare minerals. She works at a salon. She finally bought me the kit. Loved this the moment it went on and havent used any thing else since --that was 4 years ago! I am 58 yrs old and have spots and large pores. This make up covers everything and you will never feel like you have make up on. I wear it all day and it has sunscreen too! I love the pure radiance all over cover. People are always asking me about my skin and how I keep it looking so good. It is definately the make up my skin is not that great! I have normal skin and use medium beige. I wear very little make up- just the foundation and sometimes the radiance or mineral veil if its somewhere special. If I want some color I will use the warmth as blush. It lasts me a long time! Go into a store if you are not sure and have them help you. Try it on---- you will love it

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I LOOK AMAZING! I was very worried about this settling into my fine lines, and giving me a dried-out appearance....This did the opposite! I'm 35 years old and I look dewy and natural. A+++!
Date published: 2013-04-04
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I was a skeptic... but wow !!! I am 60 years old and stayed away from mineral makeup because I read reviews regarding mineral powder settling into fine lines and wrinkles, which I have an abundance of . If you are in this age group, pleeeeease go to a Bare Escentuals boutique and have a demonstrator show you how to apply this makeup properly; then wear it for a day.. I guarantee you will be back. I went into the store with my 29 yr. old daughter who has been wearing BM for 4 years; I always compliment her skin and she kept urging me to try BM foundations. Once in the store I decided to give it a go. The wonderful sales person took her time and showed me all the steps. As I walked around the mall all afternoon, I kept checking my face in every available mirror, and loving the results. This foundation does not settle in your lines, nor does it leave that awful jawline demarkation mark, nor does it feel heavy and make you aware that you are covered with a layer of ecru tinted smear which ends up all over your IPhone 5. Bare Minerals is FLAWLESS; you don't feel as if you have makeup on at all !!! Yet I have great coverage, even over the brown spots. I was using the best possible foundation ( $80) and I've tossed it. BM feels so much better on my skin. I sat outside on Easter Sunday, in full sun, and no smearing or running of makeup for once, such a good feeling. I have been getting compliments for the past 2 weeks and people are asking me what I've done, this has never happened to me before. I think the combination of wearing the right color foundation, applying the makeup as subtly as I was shown, and buffing it into creaminess has made such a difference. It is essential to go to a boutique and be shown the correct method. I had one previous experience with BM in a beauty supply type shop and I was not impressed, simply because the foundation was applied like blush, and I didn't get the proper results. This makeup is beneficial and absolutely perfect for aging skin, I am so happy I finally tried it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from amazing! i actually bought the starter kit about 2 years ago, loooooved it but went back to liquid MAC foundation because it was gifted to me (shame on me). well, ive been breaking out lately due to stress and the weather change. my fiance even noticed how bad it got, because i RARELY break out. plus the MAC foundation left an awful yellow hue on my skin, it was IMPOSSIBLE to blend in my pale skin.. so i decided to go back to bare minerals because i loved it so much back when i first purchased it. so i bought it when they were having their 3 for 30$ deal at their new vacaville outlet location (YAY!) and stocked up. this foundation lasts so long, even using it daily. like 2 months.. such a $$ saver! plus this foundation lasts on the face all day long, cleared my face up, and leaves my skin flawless. even if i get a break out, its easy to conceal it. plus im so fair, almost translucent (haha) that its hard to find makeup true to my pasty white complexion.. this foundation is a perfect tone! the MAC foundation, you could see where the foundation was lying because of the yellow hue it left on my skin, NEVER AGAIN! i love this foundation!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm a true believer!! I recently purchased the starter kit from Bare Minerals and what else can I say besides I LOVE it!!! At first, I was very hesitant- I was a liquid foundation snob. I tried everything under the sun to achieve a flawless face- from drugstore brands to high-end foundations. Nothing seemed to offer the all-day stay, full-coverage I was in search of ...until now!!! I LOVE this foundation, combined with the warm tone powder and mineral vail!!!! Not only does it look fabulous and stay, but it improved the appearance of my skin!!! Amazing product!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this stuff I NEVER wore foundation before I tried bare minerals. Not only does it cover well, but it protects my skin from the sun, and leaves my skin smooth and oil free. I love this makeup because it doesn't feel like I am wearing it, it make my skin feel amazing and has literally improved the appearance of my skin even when I AM NOT wearing it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Oh! what a match I have tried them all. B/E thus the best yet. HAVE YOU EVER PICKED UP FOUNDATION THINKING IT WAS YOUR SKIN TONE, JUST TO GET HOME TO FIND THAT IT IS`NT? NOT WITH B/E it matches my skin tone to a tee! No more to light/dark or to much. I am loving the new just right!!!!!! " YOU WANT A EVEN FLAWLESS SKIN TONE? YOU GOT IT WITH B/E. BE WELL ALL ;D

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Expect compliments 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.
Date published: 2013-03-06
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful foundation 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 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.
Date published: 2013-02-19
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!!

It has converted almost anyone who asks from liquid foundation over to BM. I love the luminosity this gives. I have fair skin. I like to mix Fair & Fairly Medium with Flawless Radiance & the blemish treatment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You must try this make up!!!! My daughter had been trying to get me to use bare minerals. She works at a salon. She finally bought me the kit. Loved this the moment it went on and havent used any thing else since --that was 4 years ago! I am 58 yrs old and have spots and large pores. This make up covers everything and you will never feel like you have make up on. I wear it all day and it has sunscreen too! I love the pure radiance all over cover. People are always asking me about my skin and how I keep it looking so good. It is definately the make up my skin is not that great! I have normal skin and use medium beige. I wear very little make up- just the foundation and sometimes the radiance or mineral veil if its somewhere special. If I want some color I will use the warmth as blush. It lasts me a long time! Go into a store if you are not sure and have them help you. Try it on---- you will love it

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I LOOK AMAZING! I was very worried about this settling into my fine lines, and giving me a dried-out appearance....This did the opposite! I'm 35 years old and I look dewy and natural. A+++!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I was a skeptic... but wow !!! I am 60 years old and stayed away from mineral makeup because I read reviews regarding mineral powder settling into fine lines and wrinkles, which I have an abundance of . If you are in this age group, pleeeeease go to a Bare Escentuals boutique and have a demonstrator show you how to apply this makeup properly; then wear it for a day.. I guarantee you will be back. I went into the store with my 29 yr. old daughter who has been wearing BM for 4 years; I always compliment her skin and she kept urging me to try BM foundations. Once in the store I decided to give it a go. The wonderful sales person took her time and showed me all the steps. As I walked around the mall all afternoon, I kept checking my face in every available mirror, and loving the results. This foundation does not settle in your lines, nor does it leave that awful jawline demarkation mark, nor does it feel heavy and make you aware that you are covered with a layer of ecru tinted smear which ends up all over your IPhone 5. Bare Minerals is FLAWLESS; you don't feel as if you have makeup on at all !!! Yet I have great coverage, even over the brown spots. I was using the best possible foundation ( $80) and I've tossed it. BM feels so much better on my skin. I sat outside on Easter Sunday, in full sun, and no smearing or running of makeup for once, such a good feeling. I have been getting compliments for the past 2 weeks and people are asking me what I've done, this has never happened to me before. I think the combination of wearing the right color foundation, applying the makeup as subtly as I was shown, and buffing it into creaminess has made such a difference. It is essential to go to a boutique and be shown the correct method. I had one previous experience with BM in a beauty supply type shop and I was not impressed, simply because the foundation was applied like blush, and I didn't get the proper results. This makeup is beneficial and absolutely perfect for aging skin, I am so happy I finally tried it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from amazing! i actually bought the starter kit about 2 years ago, loooooved it but went back to liquid MAC foundation because it was gifted to me (shame on me). well, ive been breaking out lately due to stress and the weather change. my fiance even noticed how bad it got, because i RARELY break out. plus the MAC foundation left an awful yellow hue on my skin, it was IMPOSSIBLE to blend in my pale skin.. so i decided to go back to bare minerals because i loved it so much back when i first purchased it. so i bought it when they were having their 3 for 30$ deal at their new vacaville outlet location (YAY!) and stocked up. this foundation lasts so long, even using it daily. like 2 months.. such a $$ saver! plus this foundation lasts on the face all day long, cleared my face up, and leaves my skin flawless. even if i get a break out, its easy to conceal it. plus im so fair, almost translucent (haha) that its hard to find makeup true to my pasty white complexion.. this foundation is a perfect tone! the MAC foundation, you could see where the foundation was lying because of the yellow hue it left on my skin, NEVER AGAIN! i love this foundation!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm a true believer!! I recently purchased the starter kit from Bare Minerals and what else can I say besides I LOVE it!!! At first, I was very hesitant- I was a liquid foundation snob. I tried everything under the sun to achieve a flawless face- from drugstore brands to high-end foundations. Nothing seemed to offer the all-day stay, full-coverage I was in search of ...until now!!! I LOVE this foundation, combined with the warm tone powder and mineral vail!!!! Not only does it look fabulous and stay, but it improved the appearance of my skin!!! Amazing product!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this stuff I NEVER wore foundation before I tried bare minerals. Not only does it cover well, but it protects my skin from the sun, and leaves my skin smooth and oil free. I love this makeup because it doesn't feel like I am wearing it, it make my skin feel amazing and has literally improved the appearance of my skin even when I AM NOT wearing it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Expect compliments 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful foundation 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!!
