bareSkin Pure Brightening Serum Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 20 - null
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.
I've been using the original bareMinerals foundation for over 10 yrs, I just tried my first bottle of the BareSkin foundation and I love it! I do recommend watching the video to see how to apply it, I couldn't figure it out until I watched the video. This stuff is amazing!
omg HOLY GRAIL product!
I have never loved a foundation so much! I have pretty oily, sensitive skin so I'm picky about foundation. It has fantastic coverage and yet looks incredibly natural because of how smooth, blendable, and buildable it is. It's also so luminescent that random strangers will often ask me how my skin looks so healthy and clear! I am absolutely in love. I have never felt so confident.
Hands down best foundation out there!
I just recently purchased this foundation in #7 and I am absolutely blown away with it. I have combination to oily skin and this foundation does wonders for me. Ive been using bare minerals for years now. Ive always loved the mineral powder and when I heard that they came out with a liquid foundation i had to try it. I actually went to the store to try it out first and the lady was so helpful, she showed me how to apply it and gave me some new tricks as well. I put it on in the morning and throughout the day it stays with me, it doesn't cake-up or drip down your face if your in the heat too long. I love how lightweight this foundation is. Sometimes I forget that I'm even wearing it. They say to use two drops but since I like the look of medium-full coverage I use four and its perfect. I finish the look with my bare essentials blush and bronzer and mineral veil and I'm good to go for the whole day! You wont be sorry for this purchase!
WOW! Why didn't I try this sooner!?!?!
I am a BE girl through and through and own just about every item that BE sells. I was a little hesitant to try this because of some of the reviews, but how can people not love this? It goes on easily and looks flawless. It leaves a nice dewy appearance and covers flaws well. I am 47 and although I take care of my skin with all BE products I have some imperfections (some red spots and dry areas). This foundation covered the red spots and didn't settle in the dry areas. I LOVE IT!!!!
I've had trouble with foundations covering my redness but looking extremely cakey. This foundation covers extremely well and gives a completely natural finish. My only complaints are that it has a tendency to cling to dry patches and wears off when i sweat.
I have used a wide variety of foundation products and determined liquid is my favorite. I have several BM products including the powder foundation which I like. When I saw BM came out with liquid I was thrilled. This is a fabulous product! Goes on smooth (highly recommend getting the brush), and stays put. I used the BM primer used 2 drops on each side, then a third for extra under eye coverage and set with Mineral Veil. Spent the day at the flea market and working in the yard in 80 degree sunshine, sweat rolling down my face. I was expecting to look like a streaky, clumpy mess, but I didn't! My face just looked dewy. No streaks, no smudges. Had I smelled better, I could have gone out on the town without a face touch up!
I've been a BE user for the last two years. I liked the powder foundation, but it never covered everything for me. I have huge red streaks on my face--just red pigmentation, no rosecea or anything like that. I had been wanting to try this, just to give it a shot to see if it worked better than the powder.
I went to a BE store to get shade matched and left with a sample of the Bare Linen foundation. When I looked at colors online, this was the one that I was leaning towards ordering, but I'm glad I got shade matched. The woman who shade matched me used the redness remedy on me before putting on the liquid, and it looked good, but I was hoping to only use one product. The next day, I put it on (not using the brush or redness remedy) and fell in love!
I use between 3-4 drops, depending on how stubborn the redness is that day. The sample I was given lasted me a week, and I've been able to tweak how I apply it and I've already seen an improvement in my redness on my face. I use about two drops to cover the red and a drop to finish my face. It doesn't take long to put the foundation on and it stays on. Make sure to use the mineral veil--that really seals the deal!
I have NEVER found a foundation that covered my redness this well. I have suffered what seems like eons waiting for a product to come along that will help cover the red, and it's finally here! I'm hooked!
Covers my rosacea
I have a difficult time finding the right kind of foundation to cover my blotchy skin as I suffer from rosacea. It is so bad, that if I go without makeup my friends and family will ask if I have really bad sunburn. :(
This coverage feels amazingly soft and goes on very smoothly. You do not need to brush it into the skin for long. I use 3 drops total - so this bottle should last me a long time!! I apply one dot to each side and then I share the last drop to reapply over my rosacea cheeks for extra coverage. I highly recommend you purchase the special brush that goes with it. Believe me when I say that I NEVER buy department store priced brushes, but this one is well worth the cost.
The final coverage does have a brightening quality to it. It's not shimmery, but almost luminescent-like?
Highly recommend this product!
Best liquid foundation I've ever tried
I received a sample of Bareskin with my last order in shade 07. It was the perfect match. I had gone to a retailer for a shade match and not the boutique. She used a different application brush and shade 09. I didn't like the look. Ladies, please get shade matched and use the right brush. It makes a huge difference. Like other Bare Essentials foundation, you can easily control the amount of coverage. Love it!
Light and Long Wearing all in one bottle
This is really the best of both worlds. Incredibly light, super blendable, so you can adjust coverage easily. Surprisingly long-wearing - I made it across the country by plane, no touch ups needed!
I would say I need to apply more than I was expecting to get the coverage I prefer, but it's so easy to layer that this isn't really an issue.
Best liquid foundation I've tried
I've been using BM foundation for years. Even when I've tried to go liquid/BB cream/other powder, I've always come back. However, sometimes the BM Original Foundation caused my skin to become too dry. So I figured I'd give the liquid a shot.
It's definitely been the best liquid foundation I've tried. Most other liquids either don't provide enough coverage, or provide too much and make my face look cakey. But BM provides just enough (and it's buildable if you need more). Typically I find that two drops will be enough for my whole face.
My only complaint is that sometimes you have to shake the bottle A LOT. If you don't, the foundation will be runny and you'll pour out WAY more then you want to. I didn't have this problem initially (I used to have to only shake it a little), but after a month of use, I really have to give it a good shake. Haha :)
I was anxious to try this product and I do love the way it goes on and the great application brush; however, I have found after two weeks of use that I cannot get the even coverage I want over my nose and chin. My nose and chin always have a reddish hue and I just can't get the coverage I need that I can with BE original foundation. And I have noticed when I brush on Mineral Veil afterwards it seems as if the foundation on my nose isn't even there (and I VERY lightly dust on the Mineral Veil). I have noticed that by afternoon my face is shiny and the coverage seems to fade away, leaving me tired looking.
I tried something new yesterday -- after applying the liquid foundation I then very lightly applied my BE powder foundation to my nose and chin and found the coverage to be fantastic and lasted all day. The overall look is smooth and youthful and I really like it. I do feel my skin condition seems a little brighter since using the liquid foundation and I most likely will continue using it combined with the powder.
I can FINALLY wear Liquid Foundation!!!!
I have very very very oily skin and I was never able to wear liquid foundation because the oil from my face would mix in with the oily in the product. DISASTER! I have been using Bare Minerals powder foundation for about three years and it has done wonders on my skin and that I decided to try their new liquid foundation and I am in love! :) It's light on my face and controls my oily skin and completely covers every blemish and large pore. It matches my confusing complexion so well that I can't see it as I'm applying it on my face whatsoever. I am African American with red undertones and number 20 is perfect for me!
Wow, found my perfect foundation.
I JUST got my bareSkin Pure Brightening Serum Foundation in the mail. I was so excited to try it on I washed all my makeup off and reapplied it with this amazing stuff. My husband got home, looked at me, and told me I looked really pretty. Then I went over to my neighbors house to drop something off, she and her husband said the same thing and that my skin looked great!! This foundation is way better than the (many) expensive brands I have tried before. I have acne AND combination skin, and this works perfect on my zits, scars, dry patches, and oily spots. I never thought I would find "the one" foundation...but I just did (along with the bare minerals powder). I am so happy.
The overall look of this foundation is natural and glowy, but not oily!
The shade I bought was just a tiny tiny bit off, so I brushed a little of my bare minerals powder foundation over it and it looked SO GOOD. I would definitely us the two in combination with one another.
I also bought the brush that is meant for this foundation and highly recommend it. I don't think the brush is necessary, but it just makes the foundation go on that much better.
