bareSkin Pure Brightening Serum Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 20 - null
I had been wanting to try BareSkin for a while and finally pulled the trigger when my Original powder foundation ran out. I am beyond impressed! The coverage is amazing for my rosacea and minor breakouts, and it looks so beautiful and natural. I did learn that it looks best over an oil-free moisturizer, my BB with sunscreen was too sticky and it didn't lay right. Finished with Mineral Veil it lasts on my combination/oily skin most of the day. It rubs off on the nose and chin, but I think if I was better about touching up with Mineral Veil throughout the day it would minimize this. Overall, I am sorry I waited so long to try it, I don't think I'll ever be without it!
I absolutely loove this foundation. It makes my skin looked soo natural. Sometimes i do like to add the mineral makeup over so that it makes my skin look amazing. This is definetly one of my faves!!
Awwwwwwwesome! Singing the praises!
This is my favorite foundation of all time. My skin is starting to look a little older (I'm 42), so the powder foundation was getting just a teeny bit visible. I put this kind on and was a little shocked at first because it is *so* correcting that my skin looked completely different. But after a few days of using it, I'm used to having nearly flawless skin again. My only complaint is that the SPF is a little heavy. But what are you going to do? Not wear SPF? I think switching to a non-SPF moisturizer is going to make this foundation utterly perfect. One note: your skin must be well exfoliated. Otherwise the makeup shows.
Awsome new product
I love the personal touch when visiting a store. I tried this product for the first time and loved the coverage. I have redness and a scar to cover. It worked great. I would continue using this product.
I love this product! But the bottle is a disaster! Wastes product by spewing all over the place for no apparent reason. This is very frustrating! If I'm going to spend $30 on foundation, I don't want half of it a wasted mess all over everything except my face!
Please fix this, or I won't be purchasing again.
please except one thing.....
I love everything about this product except it has a bad tendancy to grab my mascara and glue it to my cheeks, even after using touch up powder over it. I use the total domination mascara and love it but i think im going to stick to your powdered foundations and concealers.
Very disappointed in this product. Very oily so it oozes everywhere. If you travel with it, expect a mess. If you just leave it on our counter, expect a mess. They say only use one drop, but since it oozes everywhere it's almost impossible to get one drop after a few uses. If you happen to get more than 1-2 drops on your applicator brush you look like snooki. It's so messy and because of its ingredients, it makes you look white in pictures. Will not buy again and I should be out soon since most of the product is all over my counter or makeup bag.
Best foundation Ever!
I am not usually a liquid foundation wearer, but lately the Primer plus powder has been making my skin look dry and flaky in places and it goes oily in others. I thought I'd try this when it was recommended for a "sheer" look. It's awesome! Even my husband complimented me "on the way my makeup looks." And he never notices anything. He couldn't pinpoint the difference, but said I looked "healthy and glowy." Ok, so he's no Shakespeare. Still, the sentiment was there. It stays all day and I love it.
Best Liquid Foundation I've Ever Had
I have had many liquid foundations over the years and most of them covered your face instead of blending in. This feels light on your face, it doesn't cake on, doesn't leave makeup lines under your jaw. It is so smooth, a little goes a long way. I don't use the brush. I use my fingers. Love it.
beyond my expectations
This liquid foundation lives up to all the hype I've heard and more.
I have a combination of oily skin along my T-zone and normal for the rest of my face.
Long story short, there is little to no powder needed, no touch up's needed, no streaking, no patchiness, and no dryness.
It has very full coverage, is seamless, practically invisible against my skin, and does not budge even after an intense workout.
HIGHLY recommended to those who are looking for a well formulated liquid foundation.
I have never owned a liquid foundation. I've always thought they would be too heavy and because I have very sensitive skin Ive stayed away from them. My sensitive skin is what has made me a fan of the mineral foundation since I was 19. I'm almost 25 and notice my face becoming very dry in the winter so I decided to put my fears aside and try a liquid foundation from a brand I have loved for some time now. I was blown away by how lightweight the foundation was and how little product I needed to use to achieve a flawless face. One again bare minerals has created a product that has amazing results for my skin and i will continue to use this product for years to come.
I have been eyeing this foundation since it came out but I was afraid to spend the money and then hate it. My in-laws purchased it for me for my birthday. I can honestly say it is better than I expected. I have acne and scarring and I feel like it goes on smoothly and looks beautiful. I actually still feel pretty at the end of the day.
Great for contact lens wearers
There is a slight odor initially but not so bad. I like that you can build on it for coverage and watching the videos really helped. I use the brush that is specifically designed for this application and start with only 2 drops on clean and moisturized skin. I pinch the brush together so the foundation sets down a bit lower so it does not glob on. Then I go a second round with another 2 drops the same way for perfect, medium coverage. I have also used the tinted mineral veil over it with the large brush. This older girl loves it!
Very light texture and finish, but oily
Nice color, finish and texture. However, it's too oily for my skin (T-zone really greases up and shows my pores). Nice on the dry areas, though! Will probably not re-purchase unless it comes in a formula suitable for combination skin.
I am not usually one for reviews, but felt as though this product deserved one. I have used the powder foundation for many years now and decided to try something new. This foundation goes on so lightly and easily, while providing generous coverage. I LOVE the way it feels and would highly suggest this product to others.
I also own this I like the light coverage, i don't like the smell, tho.
I was pleased with the sample so ordered full sized bottle & brush. First off, there was an odor to the make up - don't know if it was old or if the odor is standard (I mean unpleasant odor). It was so pronounced that I could smell it on my face while at work. I'm 64 so I don't have line free skin. I was horrified when I looked in the mirror maybe an hour after application & my face looked like cracked clay from a long drought. When I'd used the sample, I applied with my fingers & also the sample didn't smell, so I don't know if the brush was a factor or if there was just something wrong with the full bottle. And speaking of the bottle - I shook it as directed but squeezing out the makeup took a lot of effort. Twice I squirted makeup on the bathroom floor.
Oily skin beware!!
Seamless coverage, GREAT for yellow undertones such as myself, really hard to find good foundation with rich, yellow undertones. Only need a couple drops for your entire face so it goes a long way, unfortunately the packaging is poor and you'll lose a lot of product shaking the bottle. I found shaking it side to side vs. up and down helps minimize product loss.
Broke me out horribly, if you have oily skin, stay far away! :( I really wish I could love this foundation.
I have to have complete coverage when I am singing in my group on stage. This product went on so seamlessly, i was totally taken by surprise. We do shoulders, ears, back of the neck, cleavage, etc. Stage lights wash you out.
I used this product on a visiting dignitary and had her made up in a matter of a few minutes! This is amazing!!!
Excellent choice for my 30 something skin
Tried the sample that came with my last order and immediately wished I had ordered this instead of my usual Ready foundation. Application is easy with fingers. Coverage is build able, which I like. Smoothes out my uneven skin color and texture. Only cons are the messiness of the bottle and that the makeup seemed to disappear during the day.
I had high hopes for this product as I am getting older and have more to conceal than I used to. I love the original foundation because it felt like I had nothing on and had great staying power. This feels like all liquid foundations I have tried in that I can tell I have it on and feels like a mask. I don't see that it covers any more than the original foundation.
I haven't had the trouble with the bottle that others have had but I will say it is hard to squeeze the bottle and get just the number of drops I want.
This product has potential but still needs some rework in the delivery system and the formulation.
Wonderful feel and great color for my skin..
I am a woman who wears make-up sometimes. I really like a natural look. Imagine my surprise when I found this wonderful foundation in a Bare Porcelain #1. It provides a gentle coverage that makes a wonderful palate for blush, lip, and eye color. Then out the door I go. I have read some of the complaints about the packaging. My solution is take the cover off, hold the container with your finger over the open end, shake, then apply two or three drops to your brush, and apply to your skin. This way you do not end up with any mess in the cover. I always store the container upright too. There are not enough words to say how pleased I am with this Pure Brightening Serum Foundation. P.S. I am 70+ years old.
Not good my skin
I really wanted to love this foundation. I was so excited when the makeup counter consultant at the boutique put me in the chair to try this foundation and blended easy into my skin. I was happy to pay for it and take it home. Unfortunately after 2-3 months of use my skin can not handle this foundation. I looked at the ingredients and it has way more than the original powder foundation. I had my skin looking great and now I am breaking out again. I would not recommend this if you have sensitive skin.
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!!!
I was hesitant to purchase this foundation, as I don't generally like any liquid foundations. They always seem to make my face break out and look like you could scrap it off with a butter knife! I have definitely changed my mind after trying this foundation! bareSkin is the absolute best foundation I've ever used and will ever use. As long as you don't change the formulation, or stop making it, Heaven forbid, I will be a forever user! Ladies if you're hesitant like I was, take a leap of faith and try it. I guarantee you'll love it!
Great liquid foundation, poor packaging
I switched from Chanel's liquid foundation and am so satisfied with BE's foundation. I have oilier skin and I don't have problems with this product clumping or streaking. I do have a problem with the packaging. It's hard to squeeze and has frequently slipped out of my hand and fallen. This seems to happen every time I'm wearing my new vest. Good news is the foundation washed out with some soapy water. Bad news I'm less likely to use this foundation because it's trickier to get at, and slippery!
I'm normally NOT a review writer, but this product defiantly deserves one! For months I have been looking for a better quality foundation that would match my skin better(I am the palest of pale). I decided to go with BE because my skin is soooo sensitive, and I have always heard great comments about the bareminerals makeup.. THIS MAKEUP HAS CHANGED MY LIFE. Of course I had to play with it a few times to get it just right but now nothing can top this new foundation. I've found that if you use too much product or don't follow the directions given, then the results are less than satisfactory. I feel like that is where some of the negative reviews are coming from.
I have acne scars, discoloration, dry spots, etc. and this foundation works wonders! It is so buildable(if you follow directions) and so lightweight. It literally feels like I am rubbing NOTHING into my face. I would recommend purchasing the brush with the indention that BE recommends for this foundation. Yes, it's a little extra cost, but the results are totally worth it. This product would be great for everyone of every skin type. Oily girls you might have to set with a power and dry girls you may have to moisturizer before but in the end I promise it looks amazing.
Never going back!
This is the ONLY foundation I have ever found that is perfect! My natural white snow flake tone is the hardest to find a match to, and it blends perfectly! It doesn't look yellow or orange, I barely need any, it lasts a long time, and I am never going back to anything else! No cakey residue and its perfect for my sensitive skin.
Great Foundation but Packing Wastes Product
I love that BE finally came out with a liquid foundation. I like the coverage that it provides and it is easy to apply with the brush. However, the design of the packing ensures that you are going to lose a significant amount of the product just in the cap. You are supposed to shake it before applying but we will lose more of the product in the cap with the mixing of the ingredients every morning.
BE--yes, I have the cap on tight, redesign the package so we can get the full value.
Bottle is terrible
Product is very nice. Excellent coverage and flattering finish. However, the bottle leaks everywhere: into the box, all over the neck of the bottle and into the cap. Every time I open the product to use it I get foundation all over my hands and whatever I put the bottle on. It is messy and wasteful: I have lost more foundation than I have used. This is an excellent product that I probably won't buy again because of the messy delivery system. I have used Bare Minerals products for many years, but this is a disappointment.
Not for people with oily skin
I was so excited to try this product and the first few wears loved it, however, I noticed my skin was noticeably oilier than normal and this was the only new product I was using. I went back to my BM solid foundation for a few weeks and the oil cleared up. I am disappointed that I invested in not only the bottle but the expensive brush as well. I had high hoes as I love almost all BM products, this one is not for me!
