ORIGINAL Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15 - null
From Day One...
I've pretty much been raised on bareMinerals. From day one of when I started wearing makeup, I've always used mineral-based products. I have oily/sensitive skin and this product has worked great for me! The mineral formula and skin healthy ingredients are GREAT for my sensitive skin.
I recently tried a different brand of mineral makeup that claimed to be gentle on skin and non-irritating. However, within seconds of application my skin started burning and became very red. I've never had that problem with bareMinerals!
Pros: gentle, easy to apply, perfect skin tone color, good coverage, affordable, subtle perfecter, skin healthy ingredients, lasts forever!
Cons: can be somewhat "cakey," not perfect for oily skin types (LOTS of shine)
Overall, I would definitely recommend this product! I've been using bareMinerals for years now and have found that no other brand compares.
I have been using bare mineral foundation for over five years now. I have really sensitive and acne prone skin but this foundation is very light and i never had a breakout while using it. Its very natural looking, people can't even tell i have makeup on! Recently, i curious to try MAC foundation, just for weekends, and it was the worse mistake ever. The day after i used their foundation, i had a really bad breakout and it had a bad smell to it.
Overall, you cant go wrong with this foundation! Highly recommend!
Moisturizing beforehand is a MUST!
I love this foundation. It's feels light and can be applied in no time. I also love that I can build its coverage.
A couple tips though:
-Use primer if you have oily skin or it won't stay on your face long.
-ALWAYS moisturize before applying the foundation.
(I almost returned it because it made me look ashy, however I tried again and applied a moisturizer first and I love it!)
My only issue with the foundation is that it doesn't seem to cover under-eye circles very well (Or I need a different brush). I just use a concealer under my eyes before applying the foundation. Overall, this product is definitely worth buying, and I would recommend it to a friend. I can't wait to try other products from Bare Escentuals.
A New Me A New Glow
I recently ordered the Get Started Kit. At first I received the wrong color, which was way too dark and red for my skin tone. However, I called the customer service line, and they were glad to help me get the correct shade at no additional charge. I find that if I apply my primer and mineral veil first and then put my foundation on top that I get beautiful even skin coverage. I also love the natural glow that it gives my skin as well. I have received many compliments, and I can't see myself going back to the liquid foundations. I think I have found my go to product.
For the makeup that I still have that didn't match, I found that if I mix a little of the tinted mineral veil in with it before applying I can wear it for light coverage. It works out perfectly during the hot southern summer months since I am a little darker then.
I finally found a foundation!
I always use eye makeup, but never foundation because I have never been able to find a foundation that was light enough to work for me. I've tried liquid foundation, but it was too thick and heavy and always made my face look like I was wearing too much makeup. I've tried powders, but they didn't blend well and always wore off way too fast, making my skin look flaky and over-makeup-ed. I decided to try Bare Minerals foundation and am absolutely in love!! It goes on light, stays on all day, doesn't really smear, matches my skin tone, and gives me the airbrushed look I've been wanting. I don't think I'm ever going back to a different foundation.
The search is over!
I have finally found a foundation I like that won't irritate my skin. I have used many brands and either I didn't like the way they looked or they irritated my skin terribly. I have rosacea and it can be very frustrating finding the right products. This make-up is so natural, flawless, and lasts most of the day. I am so happy I have found this product. I am so pleased with the way it looks on me. The first day I wore it, I had 2 people comment on my make-up and have had several comments since.
AMAZINGLY - YOUTHFUL
I have always used mineral foundation however, was looking for a product that was cruelty-free. Bought the get started kit along with the mineral lotion and love it! 23 years old and my boss even stated I looked 'younger and refreshed' the first day I wore this to the office. Very light and the mineral veil really helps not smudge on white clothing and doesn't rub off when sweating. Will continue to use bare essentuals products!
I love this product!
This foundation is extremely lightweight which is a good think because it doesn't feel caked on. Its very natural and gives you a smooth finish. I would highly recommend this for people who don't like a lot of foundation on and for beginners. It doesn't feel like you have it on your face. It gives great coverage too! Buy it you'll love it!
i love this foundation its the only one i will buy, its perfect for my light skin tone because with other foundations i find it can look to orange and dark for my skin even thou its the lightest shade also i don't like liquid foundations because they feel to heavy on my skin and can make my skin look shiny so the mineral foundation is perfect because you don't have to use a lot and it look so natural on the skin
Loved the 1st Original Product the best
I am a long time customer and I fell in love with the 1st original fairly light and of course it was changed a little bit, just enough to mess it up for me. This is why I gave four stars. I have tried the mate and it is too dark and cakes easily, I am sick of it. I am going back to the new original. I wish it was the one I started out with. Now it is shinny on my skin I suppose it is the Broad Spectrum SPF 15 that changed it. This one is however the true color I want feels light and never looks cake like on the skin. Never want to go back to Liquid again! I do recommend this product just know it is shinny on the skin. Love, Love mineral Veil as a finishing touch. Great tip: Use Original Mineral Veil first then foundation and finally top with mineral veil for the finishing touch.
