Rated 5 out of 5 by bcushenb Best Cosmetics Purchase Ever
After trial and error with various foundations (from various companies), I have found this one from Bare Minerals to be the best. At first I was worried that I'd have to buy a container every month. After using it, I realized that I didn't use so much of it. Just a little. The results were incredible. I have rosacea and small zits around my cheeks, that were instantly covered up. Just a little of this foundation and my skin looked naturally beautiful. It didn't even look like I was wearing makeup.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Can't go wrong with the Original
I am a BareMinerals junkie. But I have to say the Original foundation is a staple in my makeup bag. It's perfect for all skin types and weather. I can wear it in the winter and I can wear it on a hot summer Arizona day.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer covers literally anything.
I have pretty bad post acne hyperpigmentation. There are lots of small red marks some darker than others that literally not even 4 layers of kat von d tattoo foundation could cover. Plus that just made me look cakey and by the end of the day my makeup was flaking off my cheeks and it was just gross.
I bought this on a whim because Bare Minerals has been awesome in the past, tried it with the buffing brush, and it covered my marks in 2 layers. It looks so natural and you can't even tell I'm wearing makeup. It cut down my time getting ready in the morning by at least a half hour. (Using a foundation brush is tedious)
If you're on the fence about buying this, get it.
It's worth every single penny and has made me so much more confident in my skin!!!

It's so easy to put on, it is flawless. You cannot tell you are wearing makeup. Use your concealer with a dab to the center eye corner to make your face brighter before brushing on your foundation.
The foundation is long-lasting. No creasing or splotching. It feels light on my skin.
It's a lovely color seems to match my color face like it was made for me.
I'm brunette and tan skin so I got the tan color foundation. You don't look tanned just clean looking.
My advice is wash your applicators with some shampoo occasionally.
Oh, and it doesn't dry out my skin.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Best Foundation I've Used
Wow, my skin has large pores and my complexion is splotchy. This foundation is a miracle. I literally take the Kabuki brush and watch all my imperfections disappear. Before I found Bare Minerals, I could never find a foundation that was a match. Fairly Light is perfect. It gives me a natural look while providing full coverage. All my flaws just vanish.
Rated 5 out of 5 by kns7 First and Only Foundation
When I first started to wear makeup my mom got me this foundation. She wanted to make sure that i got a foundation that not only looked like my skin but would be good for my skin. From then on this has been the only foundation that I buy. I have tried other foundations but they typically end up covering my freckles, looking cake-y, and cause me to break out. I have never had bad breakouts or reactions to this product. When i do get a few zits (thanks hormones) I can apply this foundation over it to easily cover them. In the winter time I have dryer skin and in the summer I have somewhat oily skin and this foundation works for me year round. I see a lot of girls my age switching foundations constantly and I'm glad i have a foundation that I can always count on. bareMinerals has a lifetime buyer in me!
Rated 4 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Perfect colour match
I have medium - dark skin tone, also on the normal - dry side, find it very difficult to get a color match even in brands like MAC that have a huge shade range. Golden tan is a really good match for my skin tone. Gives me that radiant look that I love. Except that sometimes it accentuates the dry patches under my eye, otherwise I love it! Lasts a really long time for me since I don't use make up on a daily basis.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Texanbrunette lets skin breathe
light was a perfect match also bought #7 in the liquid and the cream skin plus mineral viel and warmth plus warmth radiance. Love the eye concealor too tried during a makeover in the tube. looks better than the pot cream I have been using too. loved the eye color and palette plus lip pencil and eyebrow loose color. I can not wait to get the products. Love the one day a year for !5% personal day and I have just joined fab program and I am suppose to get 10% off soon.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer 10 years and counting
I've been using this product for over 10 years and will never wear another foundation (I'm now 29). This product covers great but isn't heavy. I had issues with breakouts before, but this product is actually good for your skin instead of the regular foundations you find in other stores. I feel like this product actually lets my skin breathe and do its thing, instead of weighing it down with harmful/random chemicals. I use this over the complexion rescue tinted moisturizer now, but have also had great success with a small amount of BB face primer under it. Plus, SPF to reduce wrinkles later in life (for all you girls in your late teens and 20s... Start now with SPF, you will be glad you did when you hit your thirties, your skin will thank you).

I have been using this for over a year. I have rosacea and was using Merle Norman. My face continually broke out and burned. Since this, my brake outs are rare depending on what is gong on in life, but the make up does not burn it, or make it worst. The coverage is very good and my face is never oily any more.
Rated 5 out of 5 by nc225 Great product
I have been using. Bare Minerals for many years. Love it! It is great for my skin and looks good, too.
Rated 5 out of 5 by BlondeAndPale IN LOVE
I have been using Bare Minerals for over a year and a half now, and I couldn't ask for a better product! I have very sensitive skin and I have had troubles in the past with other makeup. This is the first product that I have not had any irritation or breakouts! It provides long lasting coverage and has a very light feeling! I would HIGHLY recommend this product!
Rated 5 out of 5 by cb123 LOVE this foundation
I've struggled with blemishes my entire life and this foundation covers any blemish flawlessly, works as both a foundation and concealer and improves my complexion. I've never used a foundation that doesn't make me break out, but after using bare minerals for three months I haven't had a breakout and my skin has never looked better!
Rated 5 out of 5 by mrspeed wonderful product!
finally took the risk on mineral makeup and extremely glad I did! I will never wear a liquid foundation again. the coverage is perfect!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Beautiful full coverage
I've been using this product for the last 7 years. I have very sensitive skin. Could never put regular store bought make-up on my skin. I break out easily and my cheek would get so red. But with this product my skin feels free. It's able to breath. And I get that full coverage and it last all day. I have naturally rosy cheeks and this foundation helps cover it up and turn my face into a beautiful glow. And also this product covers so easily that it could last up to months of wear. Mine could last me up to 6 months or more.
Definitely recommend this product to everyone !!
Rated 5 out of 5 by kathcuddle Love this foundation!
This is the first foundation I have ever used that looks completely natural and doesn't cake up. You never look like you are even wearing the foundation yet it somehow gives great coverage and hides flaws.
Rated 5 out of 5 by LoveNY88 THE best foundation
After all of the commercial hype and my best friend using this make up I had to give it a try myself. Turns out all of the women who were saying "you will never need any other make up" were telling the truth! bareMinerals is definitely in a league of its own. I have to thank Leslie for this incredible foundation! I have been using it for years, have not found better. The container is fairly large and lasts quite some time (you don't need much per application). It applies best when used with their brushes (I use the full flawless face brush for this particular foundation) and "start from the outside and work my way in" by swirling from the outer cheeks in towards my nose and chin. The most amazing thing about this make up is that it feels like you aren't wearing any make up at all but offers great, natural-looking coverage. In my experience it is never cakey.
I am of South Korean descent and have been using Medium Beige. I recommend getting shade matched in a boutique prior to ordering online if possible since there are so many different options it can be difficult to find your "perfect" match. However, like a previous customer mentioned bareMinerals is great because even if you don't get the exact match to your skin tone a close enough one blends right in and you can lighten or darken depending on the season using All-Over Face Colors/Brighteners and Warmth. Remember, the warmth is fairly deep in hue so a little goes a very long way!
I have yet to try the matte version, not opposed it it however my skin is combination so I'm not sure. I love the original with its unique consistency as I have not been able to find a pressed powder that comes close to this. I believe this is make up revolutionized! Forever an avid fan and customer.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nemm HAPPY HAPPY CUSTOMER
I LOVE this foundation. It does not feel heavy or thick. You really do feel like you are wearing little or no foundation. Also, I never have to keep reapplying this foundation which makes me very happy!
Rated 5 out of 5 by missy1 original foundation Broad Spectrum spf 15 Fairly medium.
I have been using this foundation for many years now and It's the only foundation that I will use, it not only last for ever but it never expires. once you get the right color match your hook. at least I am . and over time it does improve your complexion it keeps it clear. because It has simple Ingredients in it. so try it you will not be Dis pointed in it.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Best foundation ever
This is the best foundation I have ever used. It provides anywhere from sheer to full coverage when applied properly. It is undetectable on my skin and looks so fresh and radiant. It is so light feeling. The staying power is awesome on my normal skin type. I have been using this foundation for 10 years and every time I try something different I end up disappointed. It applies amazing with the synthetic seamless buffing brush.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Makeup Staple
The example incites "best purchase ever." I'm not sure I can really deem it THE all-time best, but it is wonderful. I've used bareMinerals original foundation for, probably about, a decade now and refuse to switch. Golden Medium is the perfect shade for me during fall and winter months, and one container lasts me that duration. Thanks, bareMinerals. Appreciatively, Loyal Customer.
Rated 5 out of 5 by DHSC The Best Foundation
Every once in a while I switch to another foundation but I always eventually come back to Bare Minerals. I've been using the original for over 15 years!
Rated 5 out of 5 by BlondeBeauty Radient, natural foundation!
I have finally found a foundation that is perfect for me! It provides great coverage! So much that I don't even wear liquid foundation under it. This is the first time that I have worn a powder foundation by itself and I love it a million times better than anything I have ever tried. It is also buildable which is amazing too! The main thing that I love about this foundation is it doesn't have that pinkish tint that a lot of liquid foundations have. Also I don't really like a mat finish, and this foundation provides a warm glow that makes my skin just light up!
Rated 3 out of 5 by Wichelle Its just foundation
I like this foundation, but it is nothing special. I like a fuller coverage so i find myself using a little more then you need to. This product is much better if you use a different brush then what they recommend.
Rated 5 out of 5 by DiamondD I've worn this foundation for years and love it
I have received nothing but compliments whenever I wear this foundation. People constantly tell me that my complexion is beautiful and don't realize that I am wearing make-up. Natural looking and a great product.
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.
Rated 5 out of 5 by redhead96 I Love It!! <3
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!!
