ORIGINAL Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15 - null 4.6 5 132 132
BareM. Skin Care + BareM. Makeup = GLOWING SKIN Bare Mineral had been my skin FBI; taking down the bad guys in and on my skin! First makeup application technique I have ever enjoyed. Short and sample with great results. My friends and family used to "look" at me but, they can definitely "see" me since I included the skin care products. Amazingly, after evening cleansing, my kids think that I am still wearing makeup. Bare Mineral, all you do is make my ethnic skin GLOW! 10/23/2013
I was very skeptical — but WOW, I am sold! I was jaded by drugstore mineral makeups. The coverage was poor. The staying power non-existent. The packaging messy. I never expected to even try bareMinerals let alone become a fan. However after struggling with various types of foundations (unsuccessfully) and reading the hoards of positive reviews on bareMinerals, I decided to give it a try. Glad I did! I have spider veins and a lot of redness on my cheeks and nose. In the past I have used heavy coverage foundations which felt sticky on my face. Although they provided the coverage I was looking for, it didn't last and the product would cake and sink into my pours and lines - not a pretty look. So I am in my first day of using bareMinerals after the purchase of a Get Started Kit. Not a single bad word to say! The application was far easier than my liquid and the coverage was surprisingly AMAZING. I started with my problem areas and did a light application on them first, then proceeded with another all over application. That pretty much did it aside using the concealer brush for a final touch up around my nose. I didn't figure that any mineral foundation could provide the coverage this product does and without that heavy sticky feeling. It's almost magic! A top that, I've been wearing it now since 9:00am and it is still holding on very strong with out any touch ups. My starter kit came with both the Original and Matte foundations which is wonderful since it allows the user to compare without having to purchase two full size foundations before deciding. The packaging is also great with the locking lid. All in all, if you've been tempted to try bareMinerals, but decided not too for reasons of coverage, usability, application difficulty or durability - give it another look! You might be as pleasantly surprised as I was! 10/21/2013
It really works I have been using this product for years now and have neglected to write a review! But I figure, since I love the product so much I might as well let others know it's worth the buy. I use this foundation in conjunction with the Broad Spectrum Concealer in Bisque. My skin is pretty fair so I use Fairly Light all winter and in the summer I'll up it to just Light. I have gotten so many compliments. They stand out because I never received compliments on how nice my skin looked before I started using this.. a women told me my skin was "glowing" and another that my skin was "so clear". I still can't even believe it, I'm sure at the time I probably had a few blemishes too. Since I was a young girl, I have had problems with acne. This product along with the concealer worked wonders for me and continues to. Not only is it gentle to sensitive, break out prone skin but more importantly it conceals everything! Acne, acne scars, marks, those pesky broken capillaries, under eye discoloration.. you name it. The best part about these products is that it doesn't even FEEL or LOOK like you're wearing any make up, how can you beat that. 10/21/2013
Love it! I've been a bare escentuals gal for years. I started out, like most, with the foundation starter kit. This foundation, and what it did for my skin, gave me so much confidence in my appearance as a senior in high school and as a college girl. I love this stuff, and have hooked my whole family. The colors are amazing, they have a shade for every skin tone. And I love how gentle this stuff is. My little sister has huge allergy issues, tons of products, including most makeup brands, make her swell and break out in rashes. When I still lived at home she was really young, and she did what tons of little sisters did. She snuck into my bathroom and played dress up. It was great that, when I switched to this stuff, she stopped breaking out in her terrible rashes. AND it has really reduced my break outs. If you aren't using this, you need to be. The only thing better, for me anyway, is the matte formula. 10/19/2013
I'm in LOVE with this foundation! I don't like to look like I'm wearing a lot of makeup, so I love the natural look of this foundation! It is very easy to use, too. I feel like I can't really mess it up! After applying this foundation, I feel like my face looks airbrushed and flawless. Perfect match for my skin tone, too! Love it! 10/02/2013
The best foundation there is! This is truly the best foundation! I have been using it for nearly 10 years and have no desire to use anything else. I like that I can mix colors as seasons change. It is sweat proof and water proof, and it never blotches or fades! I have learned the technique of using small amounts and swirling the brush and it actually lasts longer! I use just a few sprinkles and I get great coverage! The only draw back is shipping! Even when you pay for it, it takes a couple of weeks. Keep that in mind when ordering. However, it is worth the wait! 09/27/2013
Stop Looking!!!! I have been using bare minerals original foundation for about 7-8 years. Once in awhile if emergency occured and I ran out unexpectedly I would buy some over-the-counter substitute. A friend convinced me recently to try her Mary Kay mineral foundation, which is a few dollars cheaper. Short story waste of money. I had to keep applying to get any kind of coverage so used up same amount of makeup in about less than half the time as I do with Bare minerals. Needless to say I won't stray again and this is way the better product than anything else I have tried. 09/18/2013
Great for Problem Skin I've had acne for years and most other make-ups contain pore clogging ingredients, but my esthetician says this is one of very few foundations out that will not clog your pores! Not only is this one of the few foundations out there for acne-prone skin, it feels amazing to wear and the amount in the large lasts a really long time. I've been using this product for almost a year now and I would recommend it anyone in a heartbeat. Feel the change people! But to all the people out there with acne, you have to keep in mind that the bumps will still be there but the redness can be concealed and this product does an amazing job at it. 09/17/2013
Hot Flash compatible!!! I tried Bare Minerals when I started going through menopause and having hot flashes. I would have a hot flash while putting on my liquid make-up and it wouldn't dry, so I would try to add powder. That was a disaster! I had known about Bare Minerals but never tried it and then I saw their infomercial again and decided to try it and have never looked back. It is actually hot flash compatible because when I would have a hot flash; my skin would look really good with the bare minerals on it! I love this make-up and will never use anything else. THANKS LESLIE!!!! 09/09/2013
best make up ever I have lupus 'spots' on my face which are very bright red, this is the only make up i have found that covers the spots but doesn't look made up but very natural! At the department store the only thing they had was theater makeup that would cover and it looks like the old pancake make up! No Thanks! Thanks Bare Escentuals! 09/07/2013
