bareSkin Pure Brightening Serum Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 20 - null
LOVE THIS PRODUCT
I am 64 years old African American woman with aging sensitive skin. Love this product goes on very well. I have some rosacea issues and this product covers the redness quite well without irritation. I am on my second bottle and will purchase a third. Cost effective, I use daily and this foundation last approximately 3 1/2 to 4 months, depending on the coverage you desire. The color matches my skin tone perfectly bare tan 13.
I don't notice a smell as some reviewers indicated. There is a learning curve as well. The trick is to shake the bottle very well, keep in a cooler place and store up right in your cosmetic storage container or you will waste foundation especially towards the ending of the product as the foundation will ooze out rapidly
Good product, terrible bottle design
I love this foundation. It goes on great, has great coverage and is easy to use. BUT I waste A LOT! When I tip the bottle to put a drop or 2 on the brush, I get 3, 4, 5, or more. Even when I tip the bottle back over, foundation keeps coming out. I would not recommend this until the bottle is redesigned.
I bought this product as a recommendation from a friend. I was frustrated with my previous foundation because it did not look natural in daylight. I have redness and need full coverage. It covers all my redness and looks natural at same time. I also love the applicator.
the only thing I STRONGLY dislike about this product is the smell. I'm not sure if my bottle was defective or what but the scent is nauseating. I can't wait to take it off at night because it makes me feel so sick throughout the day. I like the coverage and the way it feels on the skin.
It has better coverage than the powder. I am 38yr. old and have some age spots it covers them completely. I bought this a couple years ago and it did smell funny. I decided to try it again, and its been improved no smell and less greasy.
Terrible bottle design
I have used Bare Minerals for years and love most products. However, I think this is hard to blend evenly. The major problem and the reason I will not buy it again is the bottle. The foundation gets all over the bottle,never messy and wastes a lot. Please res
miracle in a bottle!
let me start by saying I am 25 years old and I have severe oily skin I would get big oily bumps on my face very very very aggravating. it would take at least two weeks for the oil pump to go away with another one following it .I have tried so many products and nothing has worked I have very sensitive skin, i always give a product 2 weeks to see if it would work for me even if my face breaks out and still have not found anything until now. every time I try something new my face freaks out. I am so thankful that I have tried this product because my face has changed dramatically. I always wondered about bare minerals but was never able to afford it, but I recently i purchased this product, mineralexer, and the matte powder. I am so happy! I couldn't be any more happier with this product. my face hasn't broke out since I've tried it which is unusual because my face breaks out everytime I use something different. my pores are literally, I mean literally smaller almost to where I can not see them. thank you so much for this product I will never stop using it so please never stop making it. for all the women out there who are skeptical about trying this product do yourself a favor and order it. I never knew what type of skin tone I had until I looked up how to figure out what skin tone i am. (I'm a cool tone). SO i got Bare satin, and it's a perfect match which is also unusual. I would always have to mix different shades to get as close to my skin tone as possible. now i do not have to do that. I wished we could post before and after pics.. if we can tell me how to do so and i will. I am thrilled. We all have different sensitivity what works on one person won't work for the other. I feel that this was made just for me and my sensitive skin.. you have got to try this.. it's a miracle in a bottle..
Natural looking medium coverage
After using Bare Minerals Matte Foundation, I tried this hoping for better and more natural looking coverage. I have uneven skin tone, redness around my nose and mouth, light freckles, and acne scars. Although it does look very natural, the coverage is okay but it isn't quite what I was hoping for. They say you can build coverage, but I've found that it only adds more color, not coverage so then the color match was wrong. It leaves a sticky shiny sheen but that's remedied by setting it with Tarte Smooth Operator Clay Finishing Powder. I'll keep using this but I'll be looking for a concealer that works well with it.
I love Bare Escentuals and have used the powder for years. I was looking forward to the liquid, but ended up throwing it away! The smell was awful...it was greasy (no matter how little I used)...and my skin began to breakout (never had breakouts when young)!!!
I was looking forward to using this product vs. powder but it didn't give me the coverage I need. I have a very fair complexion with "spider veins" all over my cheeks an the liquid did not provide enough density to cover them adequately.
The powdered minerals foundation smooths on and stays on, giving this old face a smooth matte look all day with no flaking or settling in the creases. I brush it on in the morning and never worry about touch-ups as I go about my day. Light and airy, never feels caked or heavy. Love it!
Brightening Serum Foundation
I have been using bare Minerals for several years. I use to have oily skin as I have gotten older it has become less oily and I find this product nicer on my skin. It is more youthful looking. Thank you Leslie
I absolutely love this product. It blends flawlessly and you don't have to use much product. The best part about it is that you feel like you're not wearing makeup at all. It gives me a very natural look. I have oily combo skin, and it doesn't look greasy by the end of the day. I could actually tell my skin was improving after using this for a couple of months. I got a shade too dark, but it doesn't look orange or unnatural at all. It blends perfectly.
Love this foundation
I really love the coverage and the feel of this foundation but the packaging creates a big mess and a lot of wasted product :(
Makes my skin look flawless, but smells bad
Its a toss up with this product. I bought it at a Bare Minerals boutique, and i follow the instructions on how to apply. It goes on smoothly and the coverage is beautiful. I let it set for a few minutes before applying the rest of my makeup. However, I can't stand the smell. It last all day and is unpleasant. Going to finish my bottle, not sure if i'll buy again.
Love this foundation, but..........
I really love the way this foundation looks! My only problem is that this does cause me to break out. I wasn't 100% sure at first but then I ran out and had to wait a little while for my new bottle to come in. During that time I went back to the original powder foundation and never had a break out. I decided to use that for two weeks, then tried the bareSkin foundation again. I broke out fairly quickly after using it. It's unfortunate because I really do love bareSkin and the way it looks but I just can't take the break out's.
Love this product! It is a nice change especially when my face is feeling like a bit more hydration is needed. My personal technique for application is to place 2 drops on the brush, make a giant "3" on the right side of my face from mid forehead, around/across cheek to mid nose, then down and around to mid chin. I then buff this side to the desired coverage. Add 2 more drops to the brush, then trace a "backwards 3" on the left side...buff and blend. This really makes for a nice, smoothly applied look.
Love it, but it gives me acne
I was so excited when I saw that Bare Minerals came out with a liquid foundation. I have dry, sensitive skin and even with a moisturizer my skin feels dry using the powder foundation. When I first tried this product I LOVED it. But then after a few days I noticed that I was breaking out in acne all over my face. I've never had acne before, even when I was a teenager. So to suddenly get it in my 40's is very strange! I know it's not hormonal b/c when I stop using this product it went away. I am very bummed, and hope that if others are experiencing this too that they will also let the company know. Hopefully they will then reformulate for those of us with sensitive skin.
bareSkin Pure Brightening Serum Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 20
This is a wonderful product. It really covers the dark circles under my eyes and helps even out my skin tone. Love It.
They really have done it again!
I have been a BE fan and user for years and years and have loved the powder because I have oily skin. After years of trying different "high quality" brands of liquid foundation, I had pretty much given up that there was ever going to be a foundation that looked good on me all day. After I found the BE powders, I fell in love and never looked back. When this serum foundation came out, I was highly skeptical. because the whole foundation of BE (no pun intended) was in their award-winning powder foundations. But who doesn't want a little more coverage? I again was skeptical because of the iffy reviews. I took the plunge a couple weeks ago and I couldn't believe how amazing it is! A liquid foundation that covers all imperfections and STILL LOOKS LIKE BARE SKIN!!!! The applicator brush worked fine for me. The only complaint is the same one echoed over and over about the bottle oozing after being shaken up. Please redesign this bottle and all will be well!!!
I've been using Bare Minerals powder foundation for years. I was ready for a change because the powder seems to float all over when tapping. I was excited when the Brightening Serum foundation came out. I purchased a bottle. I loved the coverage. However, I couldn't stand the smell. I decided to try another shade thinking maybe it was that bottle. Unfortunately, that wasn't the case. I couldn't use either bottles because of the scent. From my experience the smell never improved. I wanted to love it but I just couldn't. I am hoping they make improvements.
Tried it .. will go back to the original powder formula when this is done.
First let me say that. I have been a Bare Minerals fan for years and was excited about a liquid product. It was a little frustrating to have to buy a $30 brush when you are already buying a $30 foundation.. but I got a coupon from Ulta and decided to try it.
This stuff is a mess! The bottle leaks foundation everywhere.. I constantly have it on my hands, my counter.. I won't travel with this product because I don't want it to get all over everything in my bag.
On the positive side, I do like the coverage and it is long lasting because I discovered very quickly that you only need like two small drops on the brush to provide coverage to your entire face. If the drop are too large it will become very masky looking and way too heavy.
I am also not convinced that I like this color match for me as much as my normal powder foundation. I am glad that I tried it but I will certainly go back to the original formula when this is done.
Not a fan
I wanted to like this product so much because I have been using BareMinerals for years, but sadly I can't. For one, the product oozes out of the top after shaking it up, making everything a mess. Also, I found this product to be really greasy. Even after blending with a brush, it still leaves streaks everywhere. This is weird, but I also really dislike the way this product smells. It's almost a musty scent. I do think my skin looks brighter when it's on, which is why I gave it two stars, but with all the mess and the greasy streaks, I will not be purchasing this again.
Not a fan.
I love Bare Minerals and I have been using both matte and original powders for years. I wanted to this because it was new but I was disappointed. Granted, I have combination skin, but even in the areas where my skin is typically dry the make up was greasy and left streaks. Overall, the product felt greasy and uncomfortable to my skin. I tried with and without a moisturizer, with and without a finishing powder, and I had bought the application brush specifically for it. I would not recommend this product.
I didn't think this product was for me
I have very oily skin and didn't think I could use a liquid foundation, but I was wrong. This product helps smooth out all impurities and creates a perfect base. My face looks better at the end of the day using this than it did when I was just using the matte powder foundation and mineral veil. I still use those two on top, and my face looks great every day now, no more bad days!
bareSkin is just what it is, barely there however it covers any dark spots, acne scars, veins, etc. The application brush is not so great.... ugh... doesn't apply the coverage evenly, I use a makeup sponge and finish with Bearskin Perfecting Veil. I rarely wear makeup because I cannot control the oil, I have found that the bareSkin coverage finished off with the perfecting veil works for all day coverage, I rarely have to touch up before heading home for the day.
Awesome foundation, horrible bottle
I absolutely love this foundation. I love that it makes my skin look perfect while looking like I have no makeup on. I do have a huge problem with the bottle though. It says to shake well, but when I do it doesn't stop oozing out of the top! I have tried various ways of shaking it to help that but nothing has changed. I have probably wasted half the bottle. Please redesign it!!
Wanted to LOVE it-Never happened
I really wanted to love this product. I was so excited about a liquid foundation, I tried it for a month and I didn't love it at all. Left me feeling like my skin was greasy. I actually had a break out from it. I didn't care for the coverage at all. Even by slowly building it up I still never achieved the look I wanted with my foundation.
Best liquid foundation
I tried a sample of this liquid foundation and was really impressed, so bought the full size bottle. I did find that the sample of foundation was thicker in the sample, but still covers the same. I use my finger to apply the foundation and this works for me. I then use the original bareminerals loose powder foundation and finish it off with the original loose powder mineral veil. The bottle does need to be redesigned, because when I put a few dots of foundation on my finger the cap continues to drip foundation. It's like there is a bubble in there, so I have to fiddle with the bottle to get it to stop. You have to be sure to shake the bottle really well before use our the foundation is extremely runny. This is the best foundation that I have found because it feels so light on my skin yet provides great coverage.
Best Makeup Purchase!
This has been the best makeup purchase ever. As a young woman with combo skin I am very particular about the types of foundations I use. This foundation offers great coverage and is very light. It does not take a lot to use, I typically only use about 2 drops on the makeup brush for full coverage even with a breakout. The color matched perfectly.
