Rated 5 out of 5 by Merrie Great coverage
It is a great lightweight coverage. My face has a smooth soft look, with no cakey makeup feeling. I have found that using a good primer, helps with fewer touch ups.
Rated 4 out of 5 by qltgrl like product, not packaging
I've used this product for several years and am happy with the outcome. I am not a fan of the packaging. Being frugal, it frustrates me that the twist top doesn't stay closed when I reopen the outer cap. That results in an excess of powder in the outer chamber of the container that usually spills. And the fact that there is no possible way to get the last remaining bit out of the jar without breaking the plastic cap. I do not like paying for a product that I cannot get out of the container. It's a waste of money and cheats the consumer.
Rated 3 out of 5 by TiredofBM Decline of Bare Minerals
I have used bare minerals for a long time, 5+ years. Unfortunately the price is continuously rising and the quality is not (it's actually a bit worse). I've noticed that they rarely have products in stock for my skin tone, somehow my online purchases are later cancelled rather than back-ordered. Their customer service is likewise disappointing, both in store and online. And in general, I do not find their new products to be worth purchasing. As a reflection of the brand itself, I am no longer supporting any of their products. The 3 stars are for what the brand and this product used to be.
Rated 5 out of 5 by workinggirl7 I would not use any other foundation product on my face.
I have been using Bare Minerals Foundation for two years now, and I will not use anything else. I will go without food before I go without this foundation. I have very fare skin, and it gives me a porcelain, flawless complexion.

This is my favorite foundation I've used. It looks completely natural but has great coverage. It also never makes me break out. I would definitely recommend it for everyone!!

After many, many years of trying product after product, and being unhappy with all of them, the answer is clear. Bare Minerals Original Foundation with SPF 15. I have used this foundation for 20 years, and will never change! You all know those days when you are running late and rushing to get ready, Bare Minerals Original Foundation with SPF 15 saves you every time! I can put it on in less than a minute if I have too, and still look natural and flawless to the world! Love this stuff!!

I love using the original fairly light foundation! I can use a little bit for less coverage or more for full coverage, whatever I'm in the mood for. It's a perfect match for my skin and I think it has a great finish. Of course it goes great with all kinds of other Bare Minerals products as well!
Rated 5 out of 5 by TayNicole LOVE my BARE!
I love my Bare Minerals! I work at Ulta Beauty Store, which sells Bare, and I always get asked what type of makeup I'm wearing. I get SO many compliments on how my makeup makes my face look like porcelain (which every girl loves to hear)! Now, the first time using the loose powder, I wasn't a fan, because it was messy and I couldn't understand the sifter and shaking it into the lid, concept. BUT have no fear ladies; it's not hard to learn. I wish the sifter part of the container was a little easier to open, but more of a minor detail with how great this product covers. I have normal skin with a fair amount of breakouts, as I'm getting through my 20's stage-stress may have a factor but nonetheless, this powder plus the concealer, are to die for! I never leave the house without both! I have never had a concealer work so well against my breakouts, but using that then applying this foundation, you're guaranteed to have that porcelain look! Pairing these two products together is a must! Highly recommend!

I have used this foundation for 10+ years and will never look for anything else. I am now 74 and feel this product helps keep my skin young; most people are surprised to find out my real age. I love it- both the foundation and the compliments it earns me!
Rated 2 out of 5 by Sara098123 It was ok...
It was ok. There are better foundations out there. It was a bit too shiny for me, so I may be better off with the matte formula. The coverage was also not as good as I was expecting, but that may also be due to the brush. I have read a lot of reviews about how the right brush can improve the look of this foundation, so I will try that in the future (I am going to wait a bit for a sale though, as it is extremely expensive).
Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Perfection
The perfect lightweight foundation. It feels like you are not even wearing makeup, but still has nice medium coverage.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Looks natural
I started using Bare Minerals 7 years ago and don't use anything else. It looks so nstural. I even got my friend using it a year ago and she loves it. It just feels light on my face. I plan to stick with this line best makeup I've ever had.
I do wish they would fix the pump on the prime time bottle.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Memedonna Perfect foundation
I have used this foundation for many years and absolutely love it. I am always getting complements on my "beautiful skin" and being asked for my secret to looking young (I'm 72). I have few wrinkles, but this product really helps hide my flaws and evens out my freckles. It is a must have, as far as I am concerned.

I have used Bare Escentuals for many years for a reason. I love the way they apply without feeling heavy or looking cakey. This foundation is no different. I love how it looks on. I chose a matte this time and I am so glad I did!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Favorite for 7 years!
I started using this foundation in 2008 and I haven't used anything else since. NOTHING works like this stuff! I barely need to use any, get medium coverage (hides blemishes but leaves my skin looking bright & natural), and since it's full of great ingredients, my skin has cleared up completely and I have a nearly perfect complexion these days. This foundation helped & allowed my skin to heal entirely. I barely get any oils now, and my skin is so balanced. There is nothing else like this out there!
Rated 5 out of 5 by LoveLife85 Great coverage
I really like this product. I had been using a name brand cosmetic for years. In a desire to use healthier products on my skin, I went to the Bare Minerals store and had a makeover done. The feel of this foundation is fabulous and light and I love that it has SPF in it. I have very pale skin and burn easily. I feel secure in knowing that I have this protection every day.
I feel healthier already in my skin care...now if I could only do the same with food!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Deandean Consistently perfect foundation
I have been using bare minerals foundations since the beginning when that's almost all there was in the make-up line. The mineral powder coverage has never let me down even as I get older, I'm 62 now. There is no feeling of heavy makeup or fear of lines or wearing off. The color blends magically with my skin and I just go one shade darker in the summer to create a pretend tan. Somehow it's fun to use the powder foundation although I can't explain why. The only con is that the online Bare Minerals website does not accept PayPal. so my
midnight shopping in bed when I can't sleep doesn't include trying out new stuff from Bare Minerals because my credit card is in my wallet in the kitchen...someday...

Great coverage, long lasting, lightweight, beautiful, smooth application!
Rated 4 out of 5 by fairlysunshine Perfection
This foundation is perfect for me. I like a minimal amount of coverage and a very light feeling foundation and this was it. You can easily increase your coverage by adding more product but it never feels like you have so much product on. After using the product for a week I noticed my skin looked better. I've used this foundation since I was a senior in high school and am still using it as Junior in college. So easy and fast to apply especially running from class to class. I think it works all season round as well.

I've been using the Bareminerals Original Foundation for years now. It provides amazing coverage but somehow still looks like natural skin. It does need retouching after a couple hours but a light dusting fixes that right away.
Rated 1 out of 5 by kkcaboose Tooo small for the price
I thought I was purchasing a full size product but what I received seemed to be a travel size. What happened to the size of the product?? Very disappointed!

I have used this foundation for years! Still love it. I have roscea and it really helps.
Rated 5 out of 5 by LInFlorissant exactly right
This foundation covers - yet it doesn't look like I'm wearing makeup! It doesn't FEEL like I'm wearing makeup. It just makes my skin look fantastic. I'm 60, so I have the usual wrinkles and skin color variances, but this foundation evens out the tone, doesn't accentuate the wrinkles (something I was concerned about with a powder foundation), and yet feels light and natural. The ladies in the store helped me pick out the perfect color, so there's no "makeup line" that I have to blend. I love it!
Rated 5 out of 5 by MarleeRae Bare beauty!
I have been using this foundation for five years and all I can say is it's wonderful and has never let me down. In the beginning I did find if I applied it too hard or roughly my skin would get a little itchy, but as long as I apply a bb cream or moisturizer first it works well and holds the foundation a lot longer. It matches my skin perfectly and I ALWAYS get compliments on how my skin is glowing or perfect! I've tried every otc drugstore mineral powder out there and none of them have the velvety smooth application the way bare minerals does. The way it sets into your skin is just flawless it feels like your not wearing makeup at all! I will always use this foundation for as long as I live! Thank you bare minerals!

I would never go back to any other foundation or bronzer.

I have been trying for a while now to find a foundation I really liked and finally decided to try BareMinerals. It is very light on my face and feels like I'm not even wearing anything, it lasts for hours, and I have already seen an improvement in my skin.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Gardengal Light, smooth covering makeup
I have been using this makeup for about eight or nine years, and I simply will not use anything else. At first, I thought it would look like a powder on my face, but it did not. Even someone over 55 like me can use this without accentuating lines in your face. The best results comes after using the foundation primer and the moisturizer. I have dry skin and you really cannot tell with this foundation. I love it!
Rated 5 out of 5 by JJPS Very happy with this product
I've been using this product for around six years now. I like how I can shake out the amount I will use and apply it properly with a brush to smooth and even out my skin tones, yet it looks natural. I have sensitive skin and this product has never irritated my skin which means the world to me. I have never found it to be blotchy but find a little blotting around crease lines may be in order if I haven't been careful in application. Copy cat products do not work, don't waste your money, this is it.

I really like this foundation but I did not at first because my skin tends to be dry. I found after using the beautiful finish brush and a really good moisturizer (I like Ponds dry skin formula) this foundation will work great for dry skin.
