ORIGINAL Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15 - null
luscious and smooth
I have waited to use bare Minerals for a while and the waitng was worth it. I used the foundation along with a sample of the primer and veil and the foundation just glides on. It looks like I don't have anything on my face at all. I was hot and sweaty and my face stayed smooth. I love this product.
Amazing and natural
I rarely do make up but I became a fan already. This is super natural and gets even better in terms of coverage through the day. Also good for my acne. Other products made it worse but this did't. I loved it.
gorgeous natural finish
makes my skin look perfect and radiant, lasted for several hours
This foundation is a godsend
I've been using this foundation ever since they added the Fair shade. Nearly two decades, I belive. I'm very fair, and the shade Fair is as dark as I can go without looking ridiculous. I really wish BareEscentuals would add a Very Fair or Porcelain shade, at the very least.
Other than that, this has been an absolute godsend. From my early teens to my early-40's I had super oily skin. On top of that, I'm very fair, with neutral undertones. I have many allergies to fragrances and ingredients, and sensitive skin. Finding a foundation was a nightmare. It was impossible to get the right color, with the right undertones, that wouldn't oxidize or melt off (esp. in the days before primer existed). I had given up till I heard about this foundation.
This doesn't bother my skin, doesn't make me break out, doesn't melt off in hot weather or from oily skin, doesn't oxidize, doesn't feel heavy. It DOES look natural, feel weightless, control oil and shine (especially when paired with the Mineral Veil), cover blemishes and imperfects. It has very buildable coverage.
Now that I'm in my mid-40s, my skin is still oily, but not as bad. Hormones frequently make it break out or have weeks where my skin is more combination. This foundation is very adaptable to whatever condition my skin is in. It's my HG foundation and my beauty savior. I cannot say enough good things about it.
Note: It does contain Bismuth Oxychloride. I'm not sensitive to it (surprisingly), but a small percentage of people are. If you are, try the Matte version.
This foundation has worked amazing. It gives the flawless skin look with minimal effort. I have repurchased this item about six times. It doesn't clog my pores and it doesn't look caked on when applied, like some other foundations I have tried.
One of my favorite foundations
I have combination dry skin and it's very difficult finding a foundation that doesn't cling to dry patches. This foundation has so many shades so there's a match for everyone and it is so buildable that sometimes I use it as a concealer because it doesn't show the dry patches like a liquid concealer does. The only thing to keep in mind is that if you need heavier coverage than this offers (light to medium coverage with the initial application), you should use a finishing spray so that your face doesn't look powdery. However, this is honestly one of the best foundations for so many types of skin.
Simply the best, better than all the rest.
I started using BM foundation about 3 months ago after a couple of friends swearing by it while I was constantly buying very expensive foundations and never loving any of them. I started out using way too much and I can tell you exactly why: this stuff is undetectable on the skin, its amazing really it honestly looks like my skin is perfect but it far from it and I'm 38 years old. I was putting on too much and it caked in my pores and lines but after I started just doing two complete buffed layers it is flawless. I tried the matte too and I do not dislike it but I love the glow of the original. My skin is also so much better from getting away from the chemicals in the other brands. I have since switched all my makeup and skincare to BM and I'm here to stay, I will not be testing other brands. I look back at pics of myself and if I didn't know any better I would swear I did not have any makeup on, I love it so much.
Always come back to it
I can't even remember when I first started using this foundation, but I know that I always come back to it. I used the Ready foundation for awhile, then came back to this. Depending on the brush I use, I can make it to be light coverage and even a pretty full coverage. Whenever I get compliments on my makeup, I'm using this. Love this stuff and I'll continue using this for a long time.
I love the powder foundation so far! Depending on your skin type it is necessary to choose from the original and matte formula. I have found that the Matte works better for my skin type. Overall this is a great product and I am very happy with it!
I began using this foundation in my twenties, now in my late thirties this foundation remains the only one I've used. It gives my skin a natural yet perfect look. I can buff it on quickly when I have to get out the door or I can take my time, contouring with different shades to be photo ready. I've never had any issue with this foundation, it performs for me each and every time.
The best out there!
I have been using bare minerals foundation for 11 years! Every once in a while I try out a different foundation from a different brand just to mix it up and I always go back to bare minerals the next day. You don't feel like you're wearing makeup, It has great coverage,It doesn't clog your pores or make you break out, and it has a great sheen to it wear it doesnt matte out your face losing its contours and dimensions like any other full coverage foundation or powered does! Im a lifer :)
Perfect in every way
I have tried every foundation out there, I have combination skin that is prone to breakouts due to hormones (so not much will fix it). This foundation is the best thing I have ever found, I have never bought a foundation more than once, and Ive bought this three times already. The small container is not expensive and will last me up to 3 months of regular EVERYDAY use. That's incredible, I never have to touch up my makeup either, instead of sliding off, this foundation just seeps into my skin and look better throughout the day making my real skin look natural and perfect during the day. The minerals in the foundation itself have really helped even out my skin tone making more comfortable without makeup on. I don't even have to buy a concealer because I can just use the foundation with a concealer brush to fix trouble spots. I just dab a little stroke of light brightener under my eyes. I will never use any other foundation besides bare minerals. I am a serious believer I love everything they make!
THIS STUFF IS AMAZING
This foundation is absolutely amazing! I have had some skin troubles recently so when I went to the dermatologist we talked about what foundation I should be using and when I told her that I wore bareMinerals she said that was always her first recommendation for patients that are suffering with skin troubles because it doesn't contain all of the harsh ingredients that most foundations contain! So, not only is this foundation good for your skin and recommended by a doctor who specializes in clearing peoples faces but it also gives the most amazing coverage! Because of my recent term visits I started using different creams that dried out my skin a lot and before I was really oily! But this foundation looks amazing on me when I am extremely oily and when I am extremely dry! So do not shy away from this product just because it is often marketed towards people who have drier skin! I love looking flawless but I do not want to be able to feel my foundation on my face and my mom's biggest pet peeve is when she can tell that I am wearing foundation! So when finally found a foundation we can agree on with bareMinerals! I also just want to say that if you aren't sure about your shade (self matching is never really that great of an idea trust me!) go to a boutique and they are always so helpful! It is one of the only makeup stores I actually enjoy going to because I feel like they aren't trying to pressure me into buying a whole bunch of stuff that I don't need!
I've been using the original foundation for 11 years. When I first saw an infomercial for BE I thought there was no way it could work as advertised. Then a friend tried it and raved about it. So I tried it. WOW!!!! I have bad skin and even at my age (61) I still have breakouts but not as bad as before and I credit that to BE. Even with my oily skin it stays on all day, doesn't cake or crease, or turn an unpleasant color. I still thank my friend for introducing me to BE!
I've been using bare minerals original foundation for the last decade and I absolutely cannot live without it! It offers excellent coverage and is very easily applied. Quick, easy and looks flawlessly natural, not fake or painted on! I love this so much!
best make up i've used so far!
I've tried lots of make ups, and its really hard for women of color to find shades that match well. Bare Minerals is the best foundation i've used thus far and will be the last. It looks great in multiple shades, and I have tried about 4 and even when they weren't my exact match they looked great. But i was able to eventually find my match -Warm Tan which i will wear until discontinued..... hope that never happens.
this makeup gives any amazing cover and feels like I'm not wearing any make-up at all.
I have had many compliments regarding my complexion and how young my skin is looking.
best foundation ever!!!!!
I have really trouble some skin and this helps that so much! Keeps oil away and covers great!
Best Foundation Ever!
I have been wearing Bare Minerals foundation for about 15 years and this new product I just received is just as high quality, easy to apply, easy to remove and looks so natural. If you want a fresh weightless foundation then this product is for you! It's perfect!
I've been using this foundation for years! It makes my skin look naturally vibrant. I use it in combination with other BE products to cover blemishes and even out my skin tone. It's one of my favorite beauty products!
Good feelings have been confirmed
I've been using this product religiously for years. I stopped using it for about a week once I got the new Bareskin foundation and was sorely disappointed. I love this stuff even more now than I did before. It's got buildable coverage and it doesn't have an off-putting scent like the liquid foundation.
This company bends over backwards to make sure you get exactly what you want. This makeup doesn't add any "oil" in it, but has great staying power. It isn't heavy on the skin. So pure & natural. The only thing I would suggest is to have the large container of bare minerals available more often. And an spf is a welcomed bonus.
I absolutely love this foundation! I have always been a liquid foundation girl but I am now a convert. I wasn't happy with the foundation I had been using so I decided to stop in a bareMinerals store and see what all the buzz was about. Well, it's true...this stuff is pretty great. My skin looks smooth and refined yet it doesn't look like I'm wearing anything on my face. I always applied my liquid foundation with a brush but I never achieved the no-makeup-makeup look that I get with this. Love!
I'm very fair skinned and had triur with makeup being too orange or dark on me. This one is just perfect!
I am a new bare minerals costumer and I was pretty on the fence on whether to buy this product. I have acne prone skin, so i usually didn't wear foundation out the fear of breaking out. This product is amazing. The coverage is great and it doesn't make me break out! It may only be me, but it made my skin clearer! I am not scared to use this product like I was with others. I gave this 4 star though because you have to be cautious with this product. What i mean with this is that if you are a person to touch your face oftenly, the makeup may come off. For example, my face got a little oily throughout the day so when I went to the bathroom I patted my face with a paper towel. I was shocked to see my foundation on the paper! Also, if you have oily skin, DEFINITELY get the matte foundation. Other than that, this is a great product and most definitely recommend it!
I absolutely love this product. It provides the perfect amount of coverage for my skin and gives me a really healthy glow. I really like that I don't have to use a lot. I don't like to loom like I have a bunch of makeup on, and I really enjoy how natural this makes you look. Defiantly my favorite foundation. The trick to getting it to cover more without adding more to you face I just to buff! This product does have a shine quality that I love but I you don't try matte for a more powder finish look.
I had used bareescentuals in the past buy didn't apply correctly and decided to stop using. I decided to try it again, and apparently watched the video in more detail. I love this product, the coverage it gives, the easy way it is applied, and how nice it looks. The color I chose is just right for me. I may go to another shade in the summer if necessary. Love it!
I have used Bare Minerals for sixteen years now. Lived in the north and used liquid since my teens. When I moved south, liquid was too heavy. I switched to Bare Mineral products and haven't had any problems. I am now 70 years old and love the way my skin looks and feels.
The prices are reasonable. I do wait for promotions though. The shipping is fair. Never had to use customer service online.
I had to have a friend help me learn how to best apply it, but after that I just loved it. She showed me how to put a little powder in the cap and then apply it to the brush with lots of circular motions in the cap to really get it evenly distributed on the brush for even distribution on the face.
I wanted to love this makeup - I had just recently gotten my skin super clear after changing my skincare regimen and I wanted to switch over to a makeup that was lighter while still offering adequate coverage. I will start off by saying that I have had pretty oily, problematic skin since about the 7th grade. I switched to this after having been using Tarte loose powder foundation because like I said, I wanted something a bit lighter. At first, I thought that it looked really nice but by the second day of using it, I noticed that I had many small breakouts around my chin and right cheek. As I mentioned earlier, my skin has been VERY clear lately and this product is the only thing that I had used that was different that I could link the recent breakouts to. I also noticed that it made my skin very oily after only an hour or so but that may just be because I have oily skin to begin with. Overall, I am very sad that this product did not work for me, because I have heard great things from other people.
