bareSkin Pure Brightening Serum Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 20 - null
Good, but not Great
For reference, I am usually golden medium in the loose foundation. I got this in Bare Buff #10. I was really looking forward to this product and loved it at first; however, noticed it accentuated some of the dryness on my cheeks. I also don't like the application WITH the new brush, but works well with fingers (but you must work quickly). This is a good product with the great natural benefits, but this did not work for my combination skin (oily in T-zone and dry on cheeks).
Bareskin Brightening Serum
The reviews are right when they say this foundation is perfect at first. But then something happens and the foundation seems to sink into every line on the face, making the lines appear even worse. The foundation also seems to disappear as time goes by, meaning that there is no coverage at all after awhile. I will not be buying this product again unless I hear that the coverage has been improved. Wish I could get my money back but I've already used it for about a week.
Not for me
I think is ok, little to loose. I prefer the "original" wich I have
being using for over 15 yrs. I love the original I will continue using it.
Amazing, oil free, lightweight, skin perfecting foundation! I have tried many foundations over the years, and nothing compares! All you see is smooth, perfect skin!!
while i love the powder foundation, i am so so happy there is a liquid version! i need a bit more coverage, so this was perfect for my skin. in addition, it feels so lightweight and you do not need a lot of product to cover your entire face. just add 1-2 drops and that definitely does the trick! it is quite hot here in southern california, and i really did not have any problems with my foundation dripping off my face. this is definitely a lifesaver and - now - a go-to foundation!
bare shell makeup
this product is the best ever. only problem I have is that I cannot buy it anyplace. desperately need to get this product now. I use to use the powder for 15 years but this is even better. it is so sheer and light
Another hit for Bare Minerals!
I can't say how much I LOVE this new foundation. It's perfect for summer since it's so weightless. The coverage is at least as good as the original powder foundation. I love how it feels on my skin. It's silky smooth and gives me a bit of a glow without being too much. Plus it smells great!
Where has this been all m life?!
I have been a long time BE fan since the age of 17 and I'm 22 now. I originally had trouble with the powder due to overly dry skin and trouble finding my shade (golden skin tone). They came out with more colors and I've been in love ever since however always longed for a liquid and THEY DELIVERED!!! This formula is nothing short of amazing! It covers well and has very build-able coverage (great for dark circles) and it literally feels like I have NOTHING on my face. It doesn't even feel like lotion. It becomes one with my skin and I can't thank BE enough for making shades for all skin tones. I have never had problem looking yellow or orange with BE which was the problem with ALL over the counter brands. Believe me I've tried them all. This doesn't even compare. Such a smooth silky texture it's unreal. Just try it, you won't regret it!
Not what I expected
This product does go on like a dream and looks good for about 30 minute. Then the makeup settles into the lines on your face and makes you look 10 years older than you are. I was shocked at how bad this makeup looked after a half an hour. It continues to settle all day and makes you look so old and wrinkly. You're better off not putting it all over your face and just using it for under eyes and spots. I should qualify that I am 31 years old with nice skin. I have very fine lines on my cheeks, and relatively smooth skin. I look so much better without this product on then with it. Unless you already have flawless skin (which, why do you need foundation then?) this product will end up making you look a lot worse.
Makes Aging Skin Look Years Older
I wish I had read through the reviews before ordering this foundation as some of the negative comments turned out to be my experience as well. While the foundation goes on light and I seemed to achieve good coverage, a short time later my aging skin looked at least ten years older. I'm 57 and still have pretty smooth, youthful skin for which I often receive compliments, however, this foundation looked dry on and accentuated the slight wrinkling and sagging I do have (which were not even noticeable prior to applying the bareSkin foundation) making me look several years older. It was a horrible look on me. In fact, it looked much better in the trash can I threw it in than it did on my face. It may look okay on a young woman's face, but it is not for older skin. I would not recommend it.
Being very fair skinned, I've always had problems finding a good match but when I went into my local Bare Minerals store I got matched to this in Bare Porcelain and bought it with the brush. They told me I could bring it back if I didn't like it so I wasn't risking anything. I've used it everyday for about a month now and it's the best foundation I've ever used! It only takes me two drops for my entire face and my skin looks great. I use it along with the Prime Time primer and Well Rested concealer and my skin looks great all day! I don't get oily; I get the perfect amount of shine. I'd recommend anyone to try this because I do believe it has reduced the redness in my face. I will repurchase when I run out but I think this bottle will last a long time!
I use bare honey. I absolutely love this product. It feels so light on my skin I don't even notice it throughout the day. I have combination skin and I just need to add a touch on mineral veil on the oiler parts of my face. I would recommend this. It's great on tan colored skin. Blends well with my skin color and does not look like I'm wearing makeup
Shiny and cakes
I use this with the oil control primer. I have oily skin. I shake the product thoroughly before use but I find it still comes out separated. It also leaks around the top of the bottle. I need to squeeze the bottle to dispense which I find hard to then get 2 drops on to the brush. I like the way the product feels, it is so light and natural. I set it with the ready medium mineral veil but still find it "cakes" in the middle of the afternoon in the creases on my forehead and eyelids. I have been using this daily for around 3 weeks and I think it is an improvement over the loose powder foundations and still better than anything else I have tried just not perfect
Love this new foundation. Had lunch with a good friend the other day and she remarked on the look of my skin. Thought I have work done!!! How happy was I when I admitted I tried the new foundation. She is now a user.
My first foundation!
This is my first attempt at wearing foundation and I am glad I waited. This is a great, light weight product that I absolutely love. I purchased the serum and the brush and it glides on very easily. As light as it feels on the face, it covers well. I am a new fan of Bare Escentuals!
Where has this been all my life?
I have used Bare Minerals powder foundation for seven years. I loved its sheer coverage, but as I get older, it started to settle into lines and dry out my dry skin. I had high hopes for the serum based liquid foundation, and I was not disappointed, I actually LOVE putting this on my skin every day. I used to skip makeup on days when I wasn't going out for meetings; now, this is the first thing I do! The coverage is still sheer, but you can build it up with more drops if you prefer. I use 2-3 drops for my whole face. The match is good, my skin glows, and it doesn't dry out or settle into lines. I wasn't expecting it to lighten my sun spots on my cheekbones, but it did. The only minor negative I've seen so far is that it will settle into pores if you use a lot. I apply it to cheeks first, then use what's left on the brush for forehead and nose, where my pores are bigger. Using the primer first helps, too. I have used this foundation every day for two weeks, and my skin tone and texture have improved. I love this stuff!
I was hesitant to purchase this because of the mixed reviews, especially the ones stating that it settled into their pores and made wrinkles stand out, I am approaching my 50th B-Day so I certainly do not want that! I really wanted to try it though, so I went and got color matched, which I think is an absolute MUST for everybody! You need to get the right color! I do not have flawless skin by any means and the associate only used THREE drops to cover my entire face!!! I was amazed that I needed so little, It was absolutely beautiful, luminous and so lightweight It felt like I had nothing on my face. I was instantly in love with it! I wore it the rest of the day with no need for a touch up, it did not settle into my pores nor did it make my fine lines stand out. I do think you need a good primer to get the best results and for it to be so long lasting. IMO more is not better with this foundation, don't start out using a lot, start out slowly making sure you completely blend in each drop, then build it up by using one drop at a time if you feel you need more coverage. I think this is the best foundation out there! I just can't say enough good things about it! SO glad I decided to try it for myself! Try it you won't be disappointed!
I LOVE bareSkin Pure Brightening Serum Foundation because it makes my skin look beautiful and natural. It is so easy to put on with the awesome brush. It's light and covers my dry sensitive skin perfectly. 1. I start with a clean face, 2. apply bare minerals multi-wrinkle repair, 3. apply bare Minerals purely nourishing moisturizer, 4. apply bare Minerals Prime Time (original), then finish with the pure brightening Serum Foundation (I LOVE pure Satin). Give it a try and I hope you love it as much as I do. I hope these products NEVER go away because they make my skin look young and youthful!
Best Foundation Yet
Absolutely love this liquid foundation! Tried this after trying several from brands that are carried in Target, then tried MAC which made me break out. Decided to try this one and fell in love with how light it feels on my face. I feel like I'm barely wearing any makeup! It's also very easy to put on and adjust how much coverage you would like. A little goes a long way with this one. My face is usually pretty sensitive too, but this foundation didn't cause any breakouts or irritation.
Worth a Try
As an acne sufferer- past and present- this product provides coverage that I have not yet been able to achieve with any other liquid type products. The coverage remains consistent throughout the day, without making my face oily. Love this product and look forward to future products from Bare Minerals.
Best foundation ever!
I have been looking for the perfect foundation and this is it! It provides coverage, yet is light, stays all day and looks natural, doesn't cake at the end of the day. I have very sensitive skin with redness from rosacea and this does not irritate at all. I have very fair pink-ish skin (Scandinavian) which is hard to match, but the lightest shade is perfect. ( most other companies don't make a shade light enough for me) I have combination skin and it works with both areas. It also goes on really easy with the brush and is easy to blend. I give it an A+
Best foundation ever
Have been looking for a liquid foundation with great coverage that also looks natural . I Have finally found it! Not only does my skin look flawless but they is a healthy glow to it as well. I would recommend this foundaion to anyone with mature skin. It really is one of a kind.
Thank you Bare Minerals!
I am 75 years old and having aging skin. This makes me look like I had a professional do my makeup. I glow! I have used your products for many years but this one is just what I needed.
Best Liquid Foundation
From the people who brought you the best mineral powder foundation we now have the best liquid foundation. OF COURSE! I use #3 it is a perfect match for my skin tone. It feels light but still protects my skin. You have to buy the brush with it which makes application soooo easy. This is a natural product and it doesn't contain all those chemicals that keep the ingredients from separating so don't forget to shake it well before using.
My pores stand out
I have tried many different ways of using this foundation. Just when I think I found the perfect way to apply i get a closer look in the mirror and my pores are standing out ! it's like the foundation fills them and then just gives a regular coverage on the reds in my complexion. So i have to give it a low rating. I like BE because a little goes a long way but this is just YUCK. I'll take any recommendations some of you may have.
Made me a believer
I have been using BM for at least 3 years now, swearing by the mineral powder foundation and refusing to try any other type of foundation. I kept seeing the TV commercial for this new foundation and finally decided to try it, mostly because if I didn't like it, I could return it. Well, let me tell you something - I love this stuff! This evens my skin tone, and covers everything, better than the powder in my opinion. The powder made me feel like I looked powdery. Now I look even! I still have some mineral foundation and will use it, maybe on the weekends when I don't go to work. This liquid makes me feel prettier. Thank you BM! :)
I've never been so disappointed
I've been dying to try the BareSkin Foundation, but the only boutique I have near me is an outlet and they don't carry it. There is another boutique at a mall farther away from me and I planned on going there eventually to get matched. Well, I was too impatient and ordered a bottle hoping I picked the right color. I also ordered the brush since they both looked amazing! It felt like they took forever to get here and once I received the email from fedex that they were delivered, I couldn't get home from work fast enough to check everything out. I was even happier that I picked an exact match of foundation! I removed all of my makeup, used my BareMinerals Foundation primer and went to town applying the foundation. I buffed and buffed with that brush for what felt like forever.....my arm was sore, and the foundation still wasn't blended in. It was very streaky so I finally took a makeup sponge and blended it in. After it was blended I looked in the mirror all I could see we're huge pores on my face that I never saw before (my pores may not be invisible, but the foundation made them look enormous). It did not cover the blemish I had, I had to go back in with the BareMinerals powder foundation to cover the blemish. My face looked instantly greasy after applying the foundation. I even tried applying powder mineral veil but it didn't help. I kept the makeup on to see how it would last before I wore it out in public. I'm glad I tried it at home because an hour later I looked like a fool. The foundation was even greasier looking, it was sliding off of my face, and my face looked like it had a white film on it in patches. I looked ridiculous! Granted it was hot out, but none of my other foundations do any of that in the heat! I may try it again next winter when it's cold.....since I'm stuck it! Until then we'll see how the brush applies my good foundations!
I was so happy to receive this product. I am 69 years old and when I had this on every single wrinkle on my face was accentuated. It was a big disappointment to me.
I purchased this foundation after being told by multiple people that it was an amazing foundation, and now I agree! I got it in the color Bare Latte and I am happy to say that the color is spot on for my skin tone. Not only is it spot on with the color but it hid a lot of my blemishes and dark spots right of the bat and it's extremely light weight. The only thing I can say that I don't like about it, is that it's kind of oily after a while, especially if you have combination skin like myself. But if you set it with finishing powder it should be just fine. Overall this is a great foundation and I would recommend it to everyone.
I gave up liquid makeup years ago when I switched to bare minerals powders. When BM came out with this and I received a sample my first thought was "ugh I refuse to go back to liquid makeup".
I actually had this makeup for weeks sitting on my counter and one day decided to try it. I put 4 dots on the brush and kind of started in my problem areas first than went over my whole face. Let me say I LOVE THIS STUFF!!
I would highly recommend using the brush, not your fingers. I've been using this for weeks now and my red splotchy areas aren't as obvious and I'm down to 3 dots on the brush now.
I'm hooked! lol I let this makeup dry for a few minutes and than apply just a tiny bit of radiance & mineral veil mixed together, apply a little faux tan, a bit of blush, apply mascara and eyeliner and bit of gloss and I'm out the door.
