ORIGINAL Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15 - null
Made me breakout!!
I used this foundation about 5 years ago when I had some acne and at some point my acne got out of control. My dermatologist told me bareminerals could be part of the problem, so I switched to a different brand and took additional steps to treat my acne. My skin was clear for about 4 yrs when I decided to give BE another try. I wore this foundation for about 4 hrs and when I washed my face I had 3 blemishes. The only explanation for this was my foundation, the rest of my skin care routine was the same. From what I have read about BE original foundation is that some people have a reaction to it, so make sure to watch your skin if you decide to start using this product.
Perfect for my Sensitive Skin!
So I pretty much lived my life using no face makeup because my skin is very sensitive, thankfully I do have good skin and really don't need to wear foundation but who's skin doesn't look better with makeup?! Well I finally decided to give Bare Minerals a try after highly considering for quite some time. I am SO GLAD I did. It is so easy to put it on, and is very light. I don't like feeling like I have makeup on, and this product is definitely natural looking and blends so easily. I personally prefer this powder over any other type of foundation because I don't need a heavy coverage. It does not irritate my skin AT ALL. If anything I actually do feel at night when I wash it off that my skin feels smoother and softer from it. I think it is actually making my skin better. LOVE! I have dark brown hair and light blue eyes and my skin tone is not golden or pink I would say I am in the middle. I use Medium Beige and it works great when combined with Warmth and Mineral Veil.
I absolutely love this makeup. I keep trying to switch to cheaper ones, but it never works out. I guess the price is alright though because I've been using the same large tub for a whole year and I still haven't run out yet! With combination skin, it's hard to find a makeup that won't dry you out or melt on the oily part of your skin, but this foundation is perfect--it doesn't irritate dry skin and it has real staying power on oily skin! The only thing I don't like is the twist lid...it makes it hard to get the leftover makeup out. I hope the newest one doesn't have it.
The Best Foundation I've Ever Used
I'm 59 and have used various foundations for a long time (and even other mineral foundations), and Bare Minerals foundation is, without question or doubt, the best I have ever used. I am amazed how it covers the flaws and blends over my face without a hint of a makeup line. I just saw it on TV and decided to try it and I'm a customer for life. I am between fair and medium, but I like using a shade darker and I have to say....there's no makeup line. The foundation blends in very nicely as I wear it through the day.. I think it looks even better the longer it's on. I wish they would come up with a better container for loose powder but once I get to the end of the container, I pull the top part off to get at the loose powder than gets caught along the sides of the sliding top. Once empty, I actually used the containers for other things, like storing earrings, etc. Nice for travel and carrying smaller items and securing it nicely.
I really LOVE LOVE LOVE this foundation.
I will not use any other foundation for the rest of my life. I love this stuff! Not tested on animals, goes on smooth and stays on. I love this product!
natural appeal is all
as other reviews mention, it does not cover up with the little amount they claim, in my case, i had dark scars on my face from acne. the only way i can cover them up is with some liquid foundation, going and dabbing each, then use bare minerals over it to disguise the fact im wearing make up! it just makes you look like you have radient skin, even if it cant magically smooth out bumpy skin
A Must Have!
I love this foundation. I use the flawless face brush with it and it's matches my original skintone like magic! It's even better when you use the mineral veil on top. I'm impressed!
Go to foundation
Like many women who love trying different types of make up, I used this product and left to try others. Big mistake. My face broke out in cyst like acne. So, i am back to bare essentual and break outs are gone. Never using another type of foundation.
I cannot imagine having to go back to regular makeup - a friend referred me to bareMinerals three years ago and I've never looked back! Easy to apply, no more makeup lines and great coverage without weight!
I can't Live without
It amazes me everyday how great this product is. My skin looks fawless. I am guilty of sleeping in my make up and this product does not clogg my pours. I have applied this product on friends and they are instantly converted. I highly suggest using the primetime with this product the combination leaves you skin so soft.
This is the best makeup I have ever used. It covers like they it does. I have some sun spots and the BM foundations covers them all. The Mineral Veil makes my skin look totally flawless. I would not trade this for anything.
my favorite foundation
this stuff is awesome. when you are applying it, it doesn't make the drastic difference that liquid foundation does but its like all of a sudden all the redness and discoloration is gone and your face looks perfect but it doesn't look like you are wearing makeup! I recently ran out of this foundation and had to go back to my old stuff. My face broke out so bad when i went back to my old foundation! Not only does this stuff work, but its good for your skin too.
Expected so much more
After all the hype, I am very disappointed in the mineral powder as it barely covered my skin or offered any coverage at all. I had to keep going over and over my face to get any color at all. I don't know if I'd recommend this to anyone as the price doesn't equal the quality of the product.
