bareSkin Pure Brightening Serum Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 20 - null
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.
The coverage is amazing I can't believe you can't tell I have makeup on and my skin looks great. The only thing I don't like is if your face touches something like your shirt it will get on it but otherise I love it. will continue to buy it.
I LOVE Me!!
I am 62 and have to disagree that you cannot wear it at my age. I put the BareSkin on and fell in love. It really did look bare and my nephew had come in town and rang my doorbell. I told him I had just showered and was getting dressed. He said, "Yeah, you don't even have your make-up on." I laughed and told him I would get dressed. He later told my nieces that he was waiting for me to do my makeup (I wear red or fuschia lipstick so he figured I was 'bare'). I LOVE it. Maybe they are not setting it with the mineral veil. I actually felt that the powder Bare Minerals accentuated the lines and love the BareSkin. We will see if it holds up in the heat.
This foundation is amazing!!! Cannot live without
Ok, so I bought this product at the mall a week ago. I purchased the foundation and searched all over for the matching brush. Went to 3 stores in the mall and everyone was sold out. Keep in mind I am writing this review using this product without the brush. Having said that I will continue to say that even without the proper brush this makeup is AMAZING!!! At first I was worried because I had seen all the reviews where people were saying that they had a problem with this foundation because of their oily skin. Having oily skin myself, and it being summertime, I was really worried that this would make me look extremely shiny and oily. It absolutely did not and does not. I am an all over and maximum coverage kind of girl. I have a lot of acne scars and uneven skin tone. I am always searching for the perfect foundation to cover up and even out all my problem areas. I am very happy to report that this foundation is TRULY THE PERFECT ONE! It covers all my scars and makes my skin tone look completely even. I put it on and it almost makes me cry because my face looks so flawless. From a woman who did A LOT of damage to her skin because of acne, I am writing that this makeup gives amazing and 100% flawless coverage. I love BM and have been using it for the past 5 years. This is just another homerun made by the BM team. Thank u so much for making beautiful and flawless makeup. After I apply my BM foundation and other BM products I am left looking the way I did before I did all the damage to my skin. It's an awesome feeling to look in the mirror and feel beautiful. I 100% recommend that u try this foundation. Whether u have oily skin or combo skin this is the foundation for anyone!!!! If I can cover the scars and unevenness of my skin tone with this ANYONE can use this and look beautiful. Definitely purchase this makeup!!! I am waiting on my brush in the mail. After I couldn't find it in stores I ordered it online and am waiting its arrival tomorrow. Hopefully it will just enhance the already gorgeous way this makeup applies to my face!!!!
Best Foundation I've Tried!
I don't write reviews, but after seeing quite a few negative ones, I wanted to write what I thought.
This is the first foundation that I've had (and I've tried MANY - including BM powder foundations) that is perfect! It stays on, it doesn't cake up, it doesn't get oily, nor streaky throughout the day - it's perfect. And it only takes me 5 tiny drops to get max coverage. As long as you brush some mineral veil on over to set it, you'll be good to go.
The application brush made for this foundation is also perfect; very soft and blends the foundation in very well.
Overall, I'm extremely happy with BM's bareSkin. THANK YOU!
I've used the original foundation for years and now use the ready foundation and I love them both. I was excited to try the liquid serum foundation and wow was I disappointed. This foundation feels like a mask on my face. It transfers to everything. I am 62 and have good skin, partially thanks to BE, but this foundation accentuates every line and pore. This foundation for someone under 40.
BEST FOUNDATION EVER!
Love, love this new foundation! Website for product guides you to shade based on your skin tone- I found choosing 2 shades higher was my exact match- Bare Sand- great for light olive skin tones. Finish is flawless, polished and only takes ONE drop for my entire face! Already have 2 bottles- just in case it runs out of stock! Leaves a subtle luminous glow on your skin while evening skin tone.
I love This Product
At first I was skeptical because it was a liquid and I had only been wearing the BareMinerals Original Foundation for years and loved it, but I wanted to give bareSkin a try. As soon as I applied bareSkin with that great brush I fell in love with it instantly. It goes on evenly, stays put all day long and has SPF which is really important to me as I am in the sun daily with my horse. I really believe in this product and have recommended it to my friends.
Bewitched ,bothered, bewildered, but still pretty!
Okay, ladies, I'm confused!! Even after watching the videos, I don't know when to start, blend, and finish!
1) Wash my face and pat dry.
2) Apply Rev-er Upper or moisturizer? Eye cream?
3) Apply foundation primer.
4) Apply eye primer and concealers.
5) Apply Pure Brightening serum foundation---or Mineral powder foundation--or both using the serum as a "BB" pre-foundation.
6) Apply Blush, Radiance, and/ or Luminescence.
7) Lightly dust with Mineral Veil, as a finishing touch?
Good grief!! I loved Bare Minerals in the beginning because it was so simple and fast!! Moisturize--Foundation--Blush, Mineral Veil, and a kiss of Radiance or Luminescence for night time. Three minutes to pure Beauty! And 3-4 minutes to play with eye makeup and a whisper of lip color (naturally!!) Am I turning a simple process into a chemistry project? Or am I still stuck in the 60's? What happened to tap, swirl, and blend? I love all of the new products, from skin care to luminescence, but have you stopped to count the number of foundation colors you produce? And from product line, to product line, none of the colors have the same name!! Could we please go back to to the more simple times. You have a great product, don't mess it up by confusing your customers!!
One pump BE moisturizer, one drop serum, the best!
Originally, I must admit, I was a bit disappointed when I first tried this. I am in my late 40's and have combination skin. Have used BE for over 10 years. My routine always starts off with BE moisturizer and BE primer, then foundation. When I replaced my powder foundation with the serum, it just did not look well on my face. A bit streaky, and not natural. I set the serum aside to return. Then I ran out of the tinted moisturizer. One thing I love about BE products is it's versatility and the serum did not disappoint! One pump of moisturizer and and drop of serum on my palm, blend, and on my face and I have been hooked. Very light base and very natural looking, more so than the tinted moisturizer because of the great color selection that comes with the serum. Love it. If I want a bit more coverage, two drops of serum to the one pump of moisturizer or use the primer and a very light application of the original powder foundation. And finish with mineral veil. Even with my oily combination skin, it lasts all day and looks natural and great after a long day. I can't give it 5 hearts rating because I don't use the serum in a way that it was designed, but I am hooked on this serum and will definitely buy again!
Super GREAT coverage,I love,LOVE,love, this product. I have freckles and Sun spots this makes my skin look smooth. I can't wait till it's available on auto ship. Thank You.
Different but amazing!
If you're used to using powder foundation, this will definitely be a switch up! I received this as a sample in my matte shipment. At first it felt kind of heavy (I applied with fingers as I didn't have the correct brush) but after about 20 minutes of wear I couldn't feel the weight anymore. It stayed put all day and still looked great 12 hours later when I took it off. The matte I always tend to be blotchy again 5 or so hours after application, but not with this. I'm blown away by this product, my face felt and looked prefect all day! Even received a compliment that my makeup looked AMAZING today. This will be on my list of must haves!!
DO NOT PURCHASE, HONEST REVIEW
This product is horrible, This was my first time purchasing from this company and i was so excited especially after seeing the commercial for it! So it seemed to all go well unboxing and everything until i actually tried to put the foundation on my face, The brush was nice quality i cannot complain about it, The actual foundation itself is HORRIBLE, It doesn't cover anything you can see every piece of makeup in a bright light the foundation is just a waste of money and a big lie on the commercial, The color was way to yellow especially for the shade i got it in.. SAVE YOUR MONEY! It also made me break out terribly, I actually thought the cleanser i used for years was making me break out? But no the foundation even washing it off at night and mornings STILL MADE ME BREAK OUT! Very disappointed. I want my money back.
bareSkin Pure Brightening Serum
I am so excited about this product. So easy to use and so fast! Makes my beauty routine so much easier! Best product ever!!!
Finally a liquid foundation for me
This foundation feels like none other. My face feels and looks so smooth. The foundation is light and doesn't feel like I have anything on. And another thing I love that it is fragrance free!!!
Will NEVER Be Without This!
Despite several Dermabrasion treatments, I still have several darkened areas on my face from previous acne and sun exposure. I purchased Bare Linen, and the match was sheer perfection! So easy to apply a bit heavier coverage on old acne scars without looking cakey or heavy at all! In fact, no matter how long I have it on, it continuously feels weightless, even when dancing and sweating. My skin looks flawless through the entire day! I hate liquid foundation because it is extremely difficult to apply, but using just 1 drop on the perfecting brush gives me perfect blending and even application. I am ordering another bottle already, I can't imagine ever having a day without it!
Not so perfect for combination skin.
bareSkin is an amazing product! It is so simple to use and the coverage is unlike any other liquid foundation . I really hate foundations, many of them felt and looked caked on. So I decided to try bareSkin and to my surprise It covers evenly, you only need a small amount and it is not heavy nor does it look thick or caked on. It's light and the coverage is wonderful with 1-2 drops you get a wonderful coverage. So, if you need more coverage just keep adding it on. The brush is sold separately but is worth the extra purchase! You will not be sorry, the brush is wonderful, soft and silky. So don't forget the brush. Due to my combination skin so far I have not been successful on finding the right combination of facial creams to go with it! But if I skip the creams and primers I get a nice coverage, so let's just say I'm still playing with the foundation until I find the right face scream that does not react with it. If you have a nice facial routine that has worked for you and you have combination skin I would say, try bareSkin foundation and see how different it is from all other foundations.
