bareSkin Pure Brightening Serum Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 20 - null
BareMinerals never disappoints!
I love this foundation. I've been using original BareMinerals for the last 11 years. After using it for so long, I couldn't stand the feel of liquid or creme foundation on my face, but recently was put on a cpap machine for sleep apnea. The mask makes my nose red and sometimes the skin flakes off. The original mineral makeup of course concealed it just fine, but my skin doesn't want to hold on to it like it used to, just on my nose. When the new bareSkin came out I had to try it. It didn't disappoint. It feels amazing on my skin, I can adjust my coverage as needed, and an added bonus, I don't have to deal with application mess. The brush keeps my hands clean and my application even. I love it!
I have been a Bare Minerals fan for long time. While I do love the powder foundation, it didn't seem to have the all-day staying power that this new Bare Skin Foundation does. I feel you do need to apply a good moisturizer and I also use the a Prime Time primer, which I think really helps to apply the foundation and apply a good hold. Also, a little goes a long way. I do use the "medium" Bare Minerals powder foundation as a spot concealer before applying the foundation, since it matches my skin tone perfectly. I use the 06 foundation and can also use 07 as well, although 06 is more of a perfect match. I feel it has brightened my completion a little and my lines do not show as much, as well.
Great job on this foundation!
I live in Florida and wanted my skin to look healthy and moist, not powdered. I wear only the mineral veil and have always avoided foundation so i was very hesitant. This product has no fragrance which i consider positive. It is almost scentless and i dont consider the smell offensive in the least. After reading reviews, i decided purchasing the brush was a must. The mineral veil smudges so i have to buy a setting spray. To avoid the same issue with the foundation, i bought the brightening primer (hesitant once again to introduce another layer of make up). LOVE IT! The primer, application brush, and foundation work great together and achieve EXACTLY the look i was going for.
1 drop of the primer is plenty but i have been using 4 drops of foundation (2 drops, 2 applications).
I went into the boutique for a color match. I absolutely LOVE this foundation. It covers any age spots and broken capillaries. It is also so easy to apply. Thank you!
Not for my senior skin!
Have been using BM products for 14 years and prefer the original foundation for my skin.
Tried the new liquid and found the new bottle difficult to squeeze product out. After several days was able to get some drops out. Wanted to give the new product a fair trail on my skin so kept using it. Always felt greasy even though two drops was more that enough for coverage. Also had to order two different colors to try and match my skin tone. Now the bottles are messy and the liquid comes out too fast. Product runs out the top and gets all over! I have dry skin and minor wrinkles. The original foundation with Mineral Veil makes my skin look great. Just couldn't get over the greasy feel of the liquid.
Will remain a satisfied customer with the old products.
Just what I needed
this perfect! I love bare minerals original mineral foundation. I learned about it from my mom when I was looking for makeup during prom season last year. I always loved the original, but I always loved the moisturizing feel of a liquid foundation. When Bare minerals came out with this pure brightening serum foundation I was ecstatic! I have a lot of discoloration and some dark marks and acne scars that make me feel self conscious. I have combination skin some parts of my face are super dry other parts are oily, this product makes my face look and feel completely balanced. This product is FLAWLESS. All I can say is-- Thank you Bare Minerals from the bottom of my heart.
Go in and try it before you buy it!
I love this brand of make-up, however this particular item is not suited to my skin type. I think my skin is just too dry- and no matter how much I scrub and hydrate before hand I can't seem to get this to look like I don't have flaky skin when I wear this. I would definitely recommend going into a store and trying this out before you drop any money on it. Lesson learned.
New to Foundation
I haven't ever worn foundation before so when I went to the Bare Minerals store I was nervous about anything being to heavy on my skin. Long story short, I'm so happy with how this makeup looks-- never cakey, great coverage, but never feels like I'm wearing makeup. I even use it on a concealer brush to add an extra layer on my undereye areas and on any blemishes and dark spots. Highly recommend! Even better if you can go in store for a shade match.
Not totally satisfied
I like the coverage of this makeup but it makes my skin look oily. My husband even told me my face looked oily. I put my original bare minerals on today and asked him how it looked and he said it looked better, not oily. I used it for over a month and it didn't get any better. I will stick with the original Bare Minerals foundation that I have been using for years.
The only liquid foundation I have EVER liked
I have a large collection of foundations that I have tried. I always hated how large my pores looked with liquid foundation. I only discovered bareminerals a couple of years ago, but I loved all of their products. I started out with the loose powder, fell in love with the ready product line, and was just plain confused when this liquid foundation first hit my local retailer.
I wanted to try it on a whim and at first I hated the product. I thought that it was too greasy and just didn't like how it felt on my skin. I returned it promptly. A few months later I decided to try it again. I figured I would give it a real shot this time. I was amazed at the results! I love how it makes my skin look and feel. I don't see my pores as much anymore and it just makes me feel prettier. I like it better than my powder foundations. You just have to give the foundation a chance, even if you have super oily skin like me. Here is were the problems I found and what I did to solve them:
Too greasy - I put two drops in the brush and dotted in on the part of my face that I was buffing it into. A little went a long way for me. So I used two drops for my cheek area, two for my forehead, one to blend down my jawline and the left over I used on my nose, chin and mouth area. If I needed more on any area I only used one drop.
Melted off my face - I used a primer the second time around. I am currently using the original bareminerals primer and it works like a charm. Also, I use my ready mineral veil in translucent to set the foundation and it lasts all day for me.
Smearing - Honestly the tip above worked for this too, but I will say this: Let your primer sit on your skin a few minutes before you put your foundation on. It will go on smoother and stay in place longer. Also, let your foundation set on your skin for two to five minutes before you start applying anything else to your face. Trust me it helps.
