Rated 5 out of 5 by Bbrooks 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.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer 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.
Rated 5 out of 5 by MegfromCali 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.
Rated 4 out of 5 by SanHut Great product!
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!
Rated 5 out of 5 by BEMichelle Perfect everytime
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.
Rated 5 out of 5 by ChrissyMKE 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 :)
Rated 5 out of 5 by mpleiter 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!
Rated 5 out of 5 by LoMo 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!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Adore this!
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!
Rated 4 out of 5 by MrsLynB 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.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer best foundation ever!!!!!
I have really trouble some skin and this helps that so much! Keeps oil away and covers great!

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!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer great product
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!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer 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.
Rated 5 out of 5 by geniegirl Great product
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!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Love it!!!
I'm very fair skinned and had triur with makeup being too orange or dark on me. This one is just perfect!
Rated 4 out of 5 by Julia1356 Great Product!!!!
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!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Perfect!
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.
Rated 5 out of 5 by KCPlantgirl Love it
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.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Kandi so sad
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.

This is the only foundation that I use! I have very sensitive skin and this does not bother it at all. I use the flawless face brush to get full coverage and it does not look caked on. Stays on 10-12 hours without the need for touchups. I love this foundation much more than any drugstore and highend product that I've tried!
Rated 2 out of 5 by SarahLucia Did NOT help my skin.
After changing many different lifestyle habits around to better my skin, my makeup was the ONE THING I had no changed. I thought the Neutrogena Skin Clearing liquid foundation was working well, except i still had some acne forming. I decided to INVEST about 100$ into this makeup to see better results, knowing the mineral makeup would be healthier for my skin. How disappointed I was in this makeup does not explain what I feel. I'm only 21 years old and so making a 100$ investment into makeup sounds crazy, but I was desperate to find the final solution to my skin problems. After a few weeks of use my skin had not cleared up at all, but instead CYSTIC acne had started to form. I sometimes get cystic acne but not to the extent that I got it after using this makeup. On top of that I felt the need to touch up the makeup throughout the day. I do not have sensitive skin so I do not know why this has happened. I would not buy it again and have since returned to my Neutrogena makeup which has cleared my skin. Since I spend the money, I'm willing to keep trying out the mineral makeup on days that I do not need heavy coverage and see how it fares.
Rated 4 out of 5 by MakeupNovice Nice makeup for beginners.
Bareminerals is a nice makeup if you are just getting into the makeup game. It is natural which I like and it is easy to apply. I like the fact that they offer kits because that makes buying makeup more affordable. My only complaint is that I do find that I have to use concealer to cover any problem areas before applying the foundation, otherwise you can still see the imperfections thru the makeup. But other then that I do love bareminerals.

by lovepurebeauty One of the best luminous sheer to full coverage foundations!
As a makeup artist I try many different types of foundation. I was skeptical about using this foundation until my friend gave me a makeover. I can proudly say that this BM original foundation has been my staple for 6 months! I can create the luminous full coverage look I desire without the worry of it melting off, or looking cakey. To perfect my makeup look I use the Prime Time original primer. I also visited a boutique to learn better techniques for the application. The right tools make all the difference. :0) I use the tapered face, and full coverage BM brushes to build the coverage I want, and the Flawless Radiance Brush to set my foundation using the pure radiance mineral veil. This foundation will leave a beautiful luminous finish that is perfect for anyone with combination or dry skin types.

I've used a lot of different brands of makeup and I've never found anything like Bare Minerals! The foundation covers well and does not leave my skin feeling oily. I also have had problems with cystic acne and the purity of this makeup helps combat my breakouts! I'll never use a different foundation.
