Deluxe Original Foundation Broad Spectrum Spf 15 - null
I only have 1 issue
cant get all the colors in this one. I hope you change and make it so you can get all the colors next time. But I got it for my daughters and they love it. 17, 16 their complexions have been so much better since they changed to the bareminerals.
Can't say enough about BE-for over 10 years it's been my mainstay for face, eyes, cheeks etc. This was an amazing value so of course I got it. I've been using Matte for a while but I still love the original so it's a win win for me either way; I even got a little bonus since the demand was so high, and my order took a little longer than their usual fab shipping, a small extra jar of foundation!!! You just can't go wrong this foundation or this company. Perfect coverage every time and no thinks I'm 51...bonus!!!
MY FAVORITE FOUNDATION
I have been using this foundation for years. I especially like when this super size is offered, since I use this every day. I have tried some other foundations recently and have been disappointed each time. Either they are too heavy or greasy looking in a liquid makeup or too drying in a powder and make me look like I was dipped in flour. This has great coverage and feels like I have no makeup on. I actually prefer this large size without the sifter, so that is another plus for me.
This is one of the best packaging ever!!
This deluxe size is wonderful and the jar is so beautiful and elegant looking. I would love to be able to get refills when this jar is empty. I do not want to throw my jar away. I would refill with my regular size jar and buy multiple but you cannot remove the click lock lid.
Please make it so I can but the foundation and refill my jar.
LOVE BARE MINERALS!!!
Only foundation that has my heart
I'm a strong fan of BE. I love everything that they have to offer. I just ordered this but haven't received it yet but I do have the smaller sizes of the foundation. This foundation is wonderful because it's not heavy, I don't feel AS BAD for going to sleep with my makeup on and I just like the fact that its a mineralized foundation. I've tried foundations from everywhere including Sephora and even MAC. MAC was way too heavy for me since I basically looked like a fake doll with their liquid foundation. Yes, it's expensive but completely worth it!
I ordered this product the moment I saw it was a limited-edition with a one of a kind Brilliant-Cut Crystal Cap. As soon as I got it in the mail I couldn't believe how big the container was and how beautifully crafted the cap was. I love the foundation it gives excellent coverage. I love it and recommend it.
I have used Bare Minerals for several years and LOVE the products! I ordered this beautiful package mostly because of the great deal on the price. Unfortunately, it doesn't have the "locking" feature that the smaller jars do. So even keeping it on my bathroom counter, it becomes a mess tapping the product into the lid. It's also rather large and doesn't fit in my drawer.
Very pretty to look at
Even though I had a back up powder already I picked this up for the value and the pretty pot it's in. The make up we all love is inside in original with SPF 15. I would describe it as a light hardworking foundation. It makes you look almost airbrushed - but more natural. If you dab some on a concealer brush you can cover up dark spots or belmishes, I use extra under my eyes. This product is a great base line for the bare minerals collection. The value is great especially if you factor in the SPF, you no longer need to pick up a sunscreen and that alone for a small facial tube used to cost me almost $20. Tip- if your looking for more coverage, customize your foundation by adding some "matte" before you swirl tap and buff! This way your able to control the coverage you get.
Jumbo Size is Great!
I love that you get twice the product for less than twice the cost. There are many mineral powders now days and I've tried a lot. I've narrowed it down to two that are my go-to products. I like the matte finish (which does NOT come in this jumbo size) but I bought this one in the original finish just to have. I had forgotten what a nice, subtle glow it gives your skin to use the original finish foundation! It is especially great for dry skin as it doesn't emphasize the dryness. If you're considering this, you should buy it. Medium Beige is a great color that suits many neutral skin tones. Like others though, be careful when opening. It would have a full 5 stars if it had the twist lock cap. That would save losing a lot of product if you happen to tip the jar upon opening it (like I did!). But all in all, it's still a winner amongst the many mineral foundations out there.
Seems practical but...
This product is such a great deal, especially for someone who uses makeup everyday 24/7. You never have to worry about running out of make up until 2 years, it seems like, after you've bought it. I don't recommend traveling with it though because unlike the smaller containers of foundation, it doesn't have a slidable cover so no more foundation can come out. If you end up shaking the product around you are going to end up with a big mess when you open the lid, but other than that it's one the the best buys I've seen at BE.
Thankful on Thanksgiving
I purchased this product during a fabulous Thanksgiving Sale at the local mall. I got a great product for a great price!! However, I do wish it had a dial on the dispenser to prevent spills inside the lid but, it dose look marvelous sitting on my dresser!!! <3
If you wear BE everyday, it only makes sense to purchase this. It's HUGE! This is my first time buying it so i cant say how long it'll last me. I asked the lady at the counter who prefers a light coverage and she said it lasted her a year! i wish it would come in more shades. I can see others concern about it not having a twist lock but that honestly doesn't bother me. it was never a concern of mine. with so much product at such a low price - you gotta compromise with something :) would recommend.
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.
Had to switch to Sheer Miracle mineral foundation
I didn't want to switch! My skin tone has yellow undertones (which I understand is more the norm) and I can use BE in the Light shade and it is a good match. However, during summer months when I need a bit more depth, the next shade darker with yellow undertones, jumps to Golden Tan and it is much too dark! BE's shade in the middle is Medium Beige but it has a definite pinkish tone even though it is labeled as neutral. If BE could provide a Medium shade with yellow undertones, I would gladly switch back.
Love the product but not the package
I've used this product for years, and was thrilled by the "giant economy size". That was, until I realized I couldn't refill my smaller container from it for travel and ease of daily use. The large container has no terrific delivery system, as does the smaller one. The smaller container cannot be refilled. Back to the drawing board, please.
amazing product but missing something...
I have been using the bare minerals concelear for quite a few years now. I recently purchased one at an outlet near me and it had a twist lid inside the container itself. You twisted off the normal lid, and inside it had a special twist to stop loss of powder, you twisted it one way shook out how much you needed into the lid, and then twisted it back to close the holes so you don't loose any powder in between uses. I love this feature because it really helps me from not having a ton of powder in the lid of my container when I open it after its been jostled around in my bag. I think all the loose powder foundations should have this same internal closure.
But I really love this product, it helps me cover up all the redness I always have in my face due to the sun or breakouts. It is so gentle on my skin I sometimes forget I am even wearing make-up. The best thing I think, is that unlike other foundations I have tried, when I sweat this one does not streak off and leave you looking and feeling yucky.
Natural, gentle, sheer,coverage with SPF built in.
I have been using this product since Bare Escentuals opened their first store in San Francisco, more years ago than I care to admit! This is a wonderful product, made from all natural ingredients so you never have to worry about what you may be absorbing through your pores. I was a make-up artist for years & these are the only products I ever used, and my clients were hooked immediately because of how healthy & radiant their skin was without a heavy cover over it. They were amazed at how well I could cover problem spots without heavy cakey creams, the fact you can sleep in it and it's actually a benefit to your skin is just an added plus, and now with having the SPF built in to help keep your skin healthy and young looking is another added benefit!!
