Rated 2 out of 5 by silvermoon73 May be for you, it wasn't for me!
I was part of the group blessed to be able to try this early. I LOVE MY BE, and wanted to share that before my review of this product.
The product is very drying, settles into fine lines and wrinkles, and the side of my nose, a very odd thing. It even made me look like I had wrinkles that I don't have, especially after wearing it for a couple of days, because not only did it appear dry and cakey (more drying of the skin than a cakey finish, so it's a little hard to explain), but, it actually was drying my skin out while it was on, so that every day my skin was drier than the day before. I want to make sure and say, these results were with the best possible skin care, and that, frankly, saved my skin during use, and will help it recover. Even as I write this review, I have pimples forming/showing, and my skin is now overproducing oil to compensate from use of the Bare Skin liquid foundation.
It also does not cover well, and I don't have that much to cover. One tiny area that's a little red, just looked more pronounced and that doesn't happen with my Bare Minerals Original Foundation.
The good news. This is a truly innovative product and formulation (I do not work for the company, I just analyzed it a lot, because I really wanted to like it).
The Bare Minerals Perfecting Face Brush (sold separately) is necessary! It is amazing, synthetic bristles, and shake (shake well), drop and buffing the foundation on, is a dream application. There is nothing else like it in foundation.
If you're going to order this online, trust me, go by the descriptions of each shade more so than the color photos. I tried two. Bare Cream (05) which is for the most golden light skin, and it is!!! It is VERY golden/yellow!!! The second one I tried was a much better match for me, Bare Linen (03), the "neutral" of the light family. Even the Bare Linen skews a little yellow. It's not your average neutral, at all. So when in doubt with shade matching, if you are a cool tone, don't go for Neutral. I could have easily also probably worn Bare Shell (02) the only "cool" tone in the light category of shades.
Another bonus, and a major thumbs up on the formulation is that the SPF 20 (and the product) are truly "weightless." A lot of products say that, but they're not. We've all tried moisturizers and other products with SPF, I have, one that's from a great company that also has an SPF that is also a physical block and natural. I could "feel" that product on my skin, and sometimes, no matter how hard a company tries, any moisturizer with SPF will also have a kind of smell to it as well.
Bare Minerals, Bare Skin Liquid Serum Foundation, is truly weightless, fragrance free, even with the SPF you can't "feel" it, but it has to be a good match for your skin. For me, that means not at all even the slightest bit dry, combination or sensitive. But if you have skin like mine, that is great with other products from BE, the only way you'll know if this works for you, is to try it first. I suggest going to a boutique (if you can), I though I haven't had one done, get a "Make Under." That way you can wear the product for a day and see if it works for you.
I will continue to use my Bare Mineral Original Foundation, and many other products from BE!
Peace and Beauty!
Rated 4 out of 5 by cleblon Nice foundation but not enough coverage for me
I've worn the Original and Ready foundation for years and was excited to try the new liquid foundation. I wear Fair in the original foundation and Fairly Medium in Ready. I wound up being Bare Shell 02 in this new liquid foundation and the color is just right. The brush is very nice and works well to get an even coverage. It really goes on smoothly and looks very natural. Unfortunately for me, I need more coverage than this provides. I ran out of the correcting concealer so I just ordered a new one so I can try it with the liquid foundation. I would definitely recommend this for those ladies who want a natural look or those who love liquid foundation.
Rated 4 out of 5 by keegs218 I love this, seriously.
I couldn't wait for this to be available on BE so I did order early off QVC ...
Background: I go back and forth between the Ready foundation and a high end BB cream. I like the feel of the powder, but old habits die hard and I love the look of a cream foundation plus the skin care benefits. So when I heard BE was doing a liquid, I had to try it. I am not disappointed....
I love that you can use a few drops and the application brush perfectly to buff this on to your skin. It's very easy to control the application as well as how much goes where, unlike a typical foundation brush. It really does feel like a lightweight serum in texture. I forgot I was wearing it more than a couple times.
Since it is so new I cannot speak to the long term skin benefits, but it's very easy to use and looks very natural on. I have been following it with the mineral veil and AOFC/Radiance powders to achieve that perfect satin finish look.
The only qualms I have so far are that I am Fairly Light in regular foundation, nearly a Medium in the Ready, and I ordered Bare Linen in the serum foundation and it's not a perfect match.... It is an ok match, I could probably go a shade darker, but without being able to get shade matched I took a shot.
Also I am oily T-zone so I do get a bit shiny after a couple hours, but that happens with every foundation I use, it's not just this one. I was just hoping that maybe it wouldn't for some miraculous reason.
So since I can't speak about the long term benefits plus my oily t-zone I did ding it a star, just can't give it full on 5 stars on blind faith alone....
All in all I am very happy and will probably choose this over the Ready and my BB cream for future use
* if you wait til the boutiques get this I would say you should get shade matched. I think what is recommended based off the color guilde-line pictures (QVC) might be slightly off a bit as my shade I bought is a bit too light.

BE, you nailed it with this product!!!
I am a long-time BE mineral foundation user, and I am totally in love with this new product. I wear Medium Beige in the original, and I wear Bare Beige in this product. I love the powdered foundation, and the last time I wore liquid foundation was when I was playing dress-up with my mom's make-up 20 years ago. I was very skeptical about this product, but I am sold!
My skin has several dark spots and acne flaws. After having my son, my complexion just does not look the same. This product gives the appearance of a smooth complexion in just seconds and I look years younger. I am only 30, but now my skin has a seamless look. It also helps cover the dark circles I have from lack of proper sleep =)
I was not sure how I would feel about "painting" liquid foundation on with a brush, but I love it! I am able to get the heavier coverage I need with only 4 drops.
The product stays on very well, as I wear it to the gym and it does not come off.
I am totally sold on this product! You have GOTTA try it =)
Rated 5 out of 5 by HappyLady Coming from no liquid...
I am 67. I have fabulous skin. However, I also have sensitive skin. So, Bare mInerals has been great for me. I also use Body Shop Foundation that uses Olive oil, which is wonderful. However, this time, the liquid is so light, feels so good and looked so natural, I just added blush and eye makeup and I was done. I also feel that his foundation is part of the skin care promise Bare Minerals is commited to. Color: If it is too light, use all over color. But, better too light than too dark. And, this is supposed to be brightening. It delivers what it promises and more...
Rated 5 out of 5 by penny lane Nice To Have Another Option ♥
Just received the new BareSkin Foundation and couldn't wait to try it! Once you apply this foundation it truly feels like you aren't wearing a thing on your face. The coverage is nice and lightweight...I didn't do my whole routine since I was so excited to try it, so I just washed my face and applied right after on my clean skin. It looked great even without using a primer, but I think I will try it with a primer too just to see what the difference might be if any. I will also use my concealer beforehand since I skipped that step too. But overall, I think it's a great foundation! I wear Medium Beige in the Ready Foundation so I got Bare Natural in the BareSkin Foundation because I fall on the lighter side of medium and it seemed to be a pretty good match for me. :-) One more thing, a little goes a long way, so be sure to use it just like Jessica shows you in the video presentations on the Q...just start with 2 drops in the reservoir and apply to one whole side of your face, if you think you need more then just add 2 more drops at a time. The brush is fantastic at applying this foundation!
Looking forward to trying it out more in the coming days! :-)
Rated 5 out of 5 by baremineralsLUV No way!!!
This new bareSkin foundation has blown my mind. Bare Minerals has done it again and created a product that speaks for the people. The foundation goes on easily with the awesome brush, not to mention the amount of foundation used for each application is very minimal. I feel that bareSkin foundation creates a hassle free environment because you are not dealing with the powder foundation. (Don't get me wrong, I still lvd the powder foundation as well, I just love bareSkin more!!!)
I love the fact that bareSkin foundation sticks to the bare minerals modo of less if more. I don't even feel like I am wearing foundation. This product ROCKS!!!
This product is a must buy ladies and gents ;)
Rated 3 out of 5 by GingerSnap Nice...but in my case the jury still out.
I'm very grateful to have been chosen to receive this product before release; however, I am still iffy on product.
I have mild rosacea and I don't know if its a coincidence or not but, the skin on my nose and on one of my cheeks has been irritated - red and peeling on the sides of my nose and little bumps on the side of my check. Plus my pores on my nose appear larger, than normal.
Maybe I receive a color that was too light, I am need almost double the amount of the recommended drops and the foundation still doesn't cover the redness, especially on my nose.
I'm so disappointed, I really want to love this product. The other BE foundations (original & ready) cover everything w/out using primer.
This weekend, I'll be heading over the BE store to see if they can give me any additional tips on applying.
But, I'm beginning to think I'm allergic to this new formula. So sad...
If skin issues improve I'll come back an let everyone know.
Rated 5 out of 5 by lovemybm What I've Been Waiting For…
I have tried for so long to find the perfect foundation for me….I loved the bare minerals original foundation, but always missed the easiness of applying a "liquid". This is the product I have been dreaming of…one that goes on like a liquid but is NOT a liquid. I had a few reservations but could not believe how smooth it goes on and lightweight it is…doesn't even feel like I'm wearing anything! Love this product…thank you Bare Minerals for bringing this product to the family!
Rated 5 out of 5 by NOLAGirl Love it!
I tried it on at bare essentials in Lakeside Mall in Metairie, LA and I absolutely love it! It is lightweight and looks great on me. Pure Almond <3
Rated 5 out of 5 by Weezie73 I am hooked
I just received the foundation yesterday from QVC. I just couldn't wait till May. So far, I love, love, love this liquid foundation. I love the regular foundation (have used it for 10 years now), but now that I am 40, I was looking for something more and this is it. You don't have to use too much, three drops worked for me. I love the sheerness of it, it goes on smooth and velvety. I am so glad I purchased this product and I am so glad I can stay with BE because this new foundation fit the bill.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Julez Color iss OFF!
I am normally fairly light in matte powder so I ordered Bare Satin in this.. WAY OFF.. I look ghostly white in this. Its way to light. But I will say that I LOVE the coverage.
I have alot of acne scars on my cheeks and this seemed to cover them very well. I will send it back to qvc and exchange for a darker color.
Rated 5 out of 5 by MIKI1006 Very nice
My skin is in fabulous condition, thanks to a Bare Minerals regimine, however, I still have some past issues that need to be covered. What is amazing about this product is that, with just a minimal amount of product, (I prefer as little as possible for a natural look), I get a perfect, flawless look without looking made up. I have the appearance of beautiful skin! The only issue I have is with the container, it is a very hard squeeze, the drop does not flow as easily as I would like but, it does keep it controlled so, I guess I'm good with that.
Rated 5 out of 5 by FabSue Best Liquid Foundation I have ever tried!
I'm a Fab Ambassador and was excited to finally get this in the mail. I use my moisturizer like I normally do. First day I tried it without primetime primer. Second day I used the Primer. Either way was great but it seemed to be easier applied with the primer. I use 2 drops for each side of my face. The brush is fantastic and makes it very easy to apply the makeup. I thought the brush would get "messy" with liquid foundation but it doesn't! All the make up goes on your face and the brush is virtually clean after applying. It evens out my skin tone and my face looks great. Wears nicely too. I also still use mineral veil. I really love this product!
Rated 5 out of 5 by ORblonde This is gooooooood!!!
I have been a BareMinerals Original user for over 10 years, so I was a little bit freaked out by a liquid. But this is from BareMinerals, so I was willing to try it! I'm glad I did!
On Coverage: As will all things BareMinerals, a little goes a long way! It takes a few tries to figure out what works best for yourself. I ended up using 2 drops for my whole face, as it's more than enough. It's very easy to apply... just buff it on!
On Wear-ability: This stays on ALL DAY! Even at the end of the day, my skin still looks flawless. This is truly amazing. I have fairly 'normal' skin, but my nose and chin do tend to get shiny over the course of the day. If I am going out for the evening, I might touch up my nose. But for kids' baseball games, or just general activities, a touch with a blotter paper or a quick swipe with a bit of Veil, and it's just fine! (When wearing Original I would have to touch up, regardless.)
About the Brush: Knowing how gross a latex sponge gets when used with traditional liquid, I was really worried about this brush. There's no cover on it, and I had visions of foundation smudged all over my makeup drawer and on my other brushes. But, I have been using it for a week now, and it's not goopy, not icky, not sticky... nothing but complete softness! I'm amazed.
Overall: Not sure I'm completely giving up my Original... at least not yet. But this is a winner for sure!! Especially for days when I want a more natural look (which is most of them)!
Do not hesitate to try it!!
Rated 5 out of 5 by kitty5127 This is not your typical liquid foundation
Love this product, shake the bottle really good, put one drop in the center of the brush and just buff onto half of your face, its that simple. The foundation is so light it glides on, feels like a powder and the more you buff the more of a glow you get. The foundation does not wear off like other liquid foundations, makes my skin feel silky and smooth. I will have to say this is my new favorite foundation. Make sure to find the right shade or you might be lighter or darker than your used to.
Rated 5 out of 5 by DanaC Such a great new choice for Bare Minerals to offer
Bareskin is a great alternative for those die-hard liquid foundation users. It is so easy to apply (get the brush, it is beyond worth it), quick to set, and stays in place all day. It wears beautifully over moisturizer and is topped of perfectly with mineral veil. It also blended flawlessly with A Stroke of Light. For my first liquid foundation since 1999, I would give it two thumbs up!
Rated 5 out of 5 by J.E.S Trumps ALL other liquid foundations
Ohhhhh Bare Minerals....they've gone and blown us all away again! Finally, a liquid foundation that's up to par with the Bare Minerals philosophy. Makeup that's also skin care.
I used the Original mineral powder for 6 years and swore I would never use anything else. My skin always looked naturally beautiful, glowing, flawless and I loved having sun protection in my foundation. Then, starting last summer, I developed a horrible allergy to titanium dioxide (the stuff that provides sun protection) and could no longer wear my favorite foundation. Or any foundation that had titanium dioxide, for that matter. Or sunscreen..... My cheeks were dry, flaky, red, inflamed, itchy...the list goes on and on. Long story short, I was forced to switch to liquid foundation because the powder just looked horrible on my face. Thankfully, I discovered the root of my allergy and no longer have issues, but the powder still looked too chalky for me to switch back. Yet, I should have known that I would never be fully satisfied with creams and liquids because, let's face it, they're just not good for your skin. They do cover beautifully, and it took me less time to apply than the bareminerals powder did BUT...it's heavy, it breaks up, it looks... "make-upy" compared to how Bare Minerals foundation looks. I actually looked forward to getting home and washing my face at night to rid my complexion of suffocating, oily nastiness.
Then I get an email from Leslie....................and everything changed.
BareSkin is NOT heavy. It does NOT break up. It does NOT look make-upy. That's because it's NOT, really, a liquid foundation. It's a serum. A serum packed with Vitamin C and lilac stem cells which heal and protect from environmental factors. And, of course, it has the trusted SPF 20 protection that aids in preventing premature aging. The coverage is FANTASTIC. Two drops at a time is all you need to build up your coverage. And, really, you don't need very much. I used two drops for each side of my face....and that's IT. Covers great and feels amazing.
Some people are upset with the Bare Minerals team for "betraying" the Original powder formula. My response is "THANK YOU!!!" 100%. I am so, so excited to get to come back to the brand I love.
*In the Original loose powder I was "fairly light." I actually went with the cool-tone shade of Bare Shell in this foundation as I've gotten older and developed more pink undertones. Matches great!
Rated 5 out of 5 by venus Dream come true.
Words cannot describe the joy I feel over this foundation. BE you have out done yourself this time, I don't know how you can top this. As a Fab memeber I received my foudatino on Monday I nearly knock down the mail man to get it. When I finally put it on my face I was a peace with the world. I felt like a child on Xam morning gettting her toys. I am so in love with this foudation. I have been a BE user for 10 years (started in my 30's # and now with this I need no other foudation. The one sent to me is a perfect perfect match # bare almond# I love applying it. when I put it on it is so light and soft and the 3 drops to each side of my face is just enough to give me full covererage. It feels like I am wearing nothing at all. It last and last beyond 8hours, you really dont' have to touch face up put some mineral veil on and your are good to go. Everybody at work thinks I have just good skin, #if they only new# I think this will not become my 1# foudation behind the loose power. I hope It will be in the beauty renew club so I can always have it. If you do not fall in love wiht this foudation ladies you are not a BE user or believer. Please please try this, it will make you fall in love with make up all over again .
Rated 5 out of 5 by lilithfaire Was totally a skeptic until I tried it
I have used Bare Minerals for almost 10 years now and when they announced Bare Skin, I was a skeptic. I thoughts, "That's not the Bare Minerals I know & love." Low and behold when I received it, I was intrigued. I decided to try it over my BM Moisturizer without any primer. Not only did it give me a beautiful flawless finish, but it lasted all day long in the TX heat. I did use 6 drops (3 per each side of my face) to get the coverage I desired. I'm 39 and it gave me a nice youthful glow. Give it a try! You may just be surprised like I was!

After trying this product as a Fab Ambassador I am amazed! bareSkin feels so light on your skin yet it covers up redness. As a working mom, this takes minutes off my morning routine not to mention many people have said it doesn't look like I have any makeup on! Thanks BE for once again setting the bar with quality products.
Rated 1 out of 5 by PandoraSpox i wanted to like this, but...
I have moderate rosacea, suffer from the occasional hormal adult acne break out, and inherited dark under eye circles. I was thrilled to get the invite to review this product and had high hopes. However, i carefully layered on the 6 drops max that was reccomended, never even achieved 'good' coverage of any of my skin issues, & it felt like a film on my skin. By midday, most of it had completely melted off my face, and what was left settled in all my wrinkles and enlarged pores, just like every other liquid foundation i've ever used. i would not recomend this to anyone that had less than flawless, youthful skin.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Marinablue Fabulous new product!
I am so delighted with bareSkin serum foundation. Like other Bare Minerals foundations, it's easy to control the sheer to heavy look. I prefer sheer, and when wearing bareSkin, I don't look like I'm wearing makeup. I just look like I have beautiful skin. The dryness that I've been fighting all winter is suddenly gone after wearing bareSkin for 6 days. I appreciate that this foundation is completely odorless, and doesn't have parabens. I don't need concealer or primer when wearing bareSkin. The brush is so soft and really does it's job! I've worn the original foundation for 10+ years and now I have 2 favorite products. Thank you, Bare Escentuals!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Meesh Excellent coverage
Goes on smoothly with flawless coverage. Lightweight and feels great on the skin. Hides imperfections and uneven skin tones. I highly recommend this product.
Rated 5 out of 5 by hkaenb A new foundation to put the others to shame..
As a Fab Ambassador, I received this as a sneak peak perk. It is AMAZING. I'm telling you, you cannot compare it to ANYTHING on the market right now.
The feel is silky smooth. It is NOTHING like a traditional liquid foundation. The brush they've created for it is exceptional, and blends in perfect every time.
This serum doesn't settle in pores or wrinkles, and stays the day regardless of hectic work, evening dancing, and my life on a farm.
You also don't need a primer for it. I just use a pea-sized drop of moisturizer for my dry skin and glide this stuff on. I am a believer for life!
Long live BareSkin!!
Rated 5 out of 5 by mimidee BEST liquid foundation EVER!
My foundation arrived yesterday and I applied it this morning. My face looks fantastic. My skin is radiant and has a youthful glow. The redness is gone and the imperfections disappeared. My face feels softer and it doesn't feel like I have anything on at all. I have been a BE user for over 10 years and will continue to be a devout fan! As far as color matching, I did a great job picking mine. I am a medium beige and picked bare linen. It is a perfect match for my skin. Thank you BE!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Dawn C Wow.....just Wow!
I am so happy that I decided to preorder the bareSkin Serum via QVC and get my foundation prior to every one else. I wouldn't want to risk not getting this wonderful new product, today. It is Liquid magic for my skin. It feels great, it covers in a variety of ways and it even has SPF protection. Like I said, " Wow.....just Wow!" I put on a little last night just after receiving the product in the mail and was amazed at how light it felt and how perfectly a sheer wash of color covered my skin. This morning I used the foundation and wore it all day to work. It just happened to be the last day of my fortieth year and I was told by numerous people that I don't look my age. I love that bareSkin and bareMinerals helps me to stay looking so pretty and youthful. Having a choice now between powder foundation and liquid foundation with a varying degree of coverage is perfect for me, bareSkin is a great addition to my makeup bag!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Jamie L.K. Liquid gold
Today I tried my new foundation and literally jumped for joy. It has been years since I tried a liquid foundation, and nothing ever looked or felt like this! It felt like nothing, but looked like I was born with clear luminous skin......which I was not, lol! I have large pores that disappeared with this foundation and could fully cover my dark spots on my cheek. I do have some dry skin on my nose and forehead that you could tell was dry, however I havn't done any real exfoliation to those areas, and I normally do. I blame the crazy weather that my region has been experiencing as well as my hormonal cycle. Love, love, love!!!!
Rated 5 out of 5 by camiam I think I'm in LOVE...
As a FAB Ambassador, I was so excited to receive the bareSkin Serum Foundation and the new Perfecting Face Brush at my door today! Just three hours ago and I couldn't wait to try it!! I washed and dried my face, and applied a light moisturizer as I normally do prior to my foundation application. I can only say "THIS IS AMAZING!" Just two drops into the brush (for each side of my face) and I began buffing just as I would with the loose minerals. Immediately, my skintone was beautiful~ no redness, just an even luminous tone with a dewy appearance. At my age, that's no simple feat. I'm kissing the big 5-0 and unfortunately, I don't have the best skin. Redness, dark circles, fine lines/wrinkles, and sun damage to be frank. Not to mention dryness all around my eyes no matter what I use! When I watched the QVC presentation the other night, I thought... "hmmm I'd like to try this, perhaps with aging skin like mine, I might benefit from a brightening serum foundation." I keep looking in the mirror to see if it looks the same as it did a couple of hours ago and it does! I love the loose minerals and the ready foundation, and have come to depend on the ease of use. This is so easy to apply, exactly the same application technique and this brush is fabulous. I'm a believer. By the way, I would say I'm a 'cool' tone, though I use medium and/or medium beige in the loose and the same in the ready. I received the bare natural in the bareSkin and it seems to be perfect. I got so wrapped up in the color selection while watching the QVC presentation, I really had no idea what to order. I was on the fence with the bare satin (cool), or the bare natural (neutral) and I have to say this looks great. It is so lighweight and seamless. If you are on the fence, TRY IT! I think you're going to love it!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Ayndie Finally The Wait is OVER!
So basically I'm a QVC fanatic (when it comes to Bare Minerals and one other makeup brand, but Bare Minerals is top for me). So it was only a matter of "when is this coming to qvc on advance order" and "how do I sign up for the advance order" for me to get on board. I've been using Bare Minerals for years. I can't even tell you the EXACT time I started using it, but I've been using it at least since before I met my fiance and before we had our daughter so at least 6 years or better. I venture off on a makeup journey and I always come back to Bare Minerals. I have broken out before in the past from other makeup brands and when I start using Bare Minerals, within a week I kid you not, my skin would clear up. It's like finding gold for me. I hope Bare Walnut works for me. I'm Golden Dark in the original foundation, Warm Dark in the READY foundation, I use Deep Bisque for the powder concealer, Deep 2 for the cream concealer and #4 for Stroke of Light. It would be fantastic if the color I chose fits me. If not, I can always return it or exchange it for a different shade once the other shades debut. I love how with Bare Minerals foundation I put it on and since it's powder, I really don't need to "set" it like some may do with BB/CC Creams and liquid foundation. I think it's clever that this is called a Serum Foundation versus liquid because some "liquid" foundations are more wet and the fact that this is called a "serum" advertises skin health AND beauty and not just paint on the face. Can't wait to see how this works for me! Thanks B.E. for B.E.lieving in new editions!!
