Q & A

ORIGINAL Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15 - null 4.7 5 179 180
Adore this! I've been using bare minerals original foundation for the last decade and I absolutely cannot live without it! It offers excellent coverage and is very easily applied. Quick, easy and looks flawlessly natural, not fake or painted on! I love this so much! 06/09/2015
best make up i've used so far! I've tried lots of make ups, and its really hard for women of color to find shades that match well. Bare Minerals is the best foundation i've used thus far and will be the last. It looks great in multiple shades, and I have tried about 4 and even when they weren't my exact match they looked great. But i was able to eventually find my match -Warm Tan which i will wear until discontinued..... hope that never happens. 06/08/2015
Amazing product this makeup gives any amazing cover and feels like I'm not wearing any make-up at all. I have had many compliments regarding my complexion and how young my skin is looking. 06/07/2015
best foundation ever!!!!! I have really trouble some skin and this helps that so much! Keeps oil away and covers great! 06/03/2015
Best Foundation Ever! I have been wearing Bare Minerals foundation for about 15 years and this new product I just received is just as high quality, easy to apply, easy to remove and looks so natural. If you want a fresh weightless foundation then this product is for you! It's perfect! 05/27/2015
great product I've been using this foundation for years! It makes my skin look naturally vibrant. I use it in combination with other BE products to cover blemishes and even out my skin tone. It's one of my favorite beauty products! 05/22/2015
Good feelings have been confirmed I've been using this product religiously for years. I stopped using it for about a week once I got the new Bareskin foundation and was sorely disappointed. I love this stuff even more now than I did before. It's got buildable coverage and it doesn't have an off-putting scent like the liquid foundation. 05/06/2015
Great product This company bends over backwards to make sure you get exactly what you want. This makeup doesn't add any "oil" in it, but has great staying power. It isn't heavy on the skin. So pure & natural. The only thing I would suggest is to have the large container of bare minerals available more often. And an spf is a welcomed bonus. 04/24/2015
Naked Perfection! I absolutely love this foundation! I have always been a liquid foundation girl but I am now a convert. I wasn't happy with the foundation I had been using so I decided to stop in a bareMinerals store and see what all the buzz was about. Well, it's true...this stuff is pretty great. My skin looks smooth and refined yet it doesn't look like I'm wearing anything on my face. I always applied my liquid foundation with a brush but I never achieved the no-makeup-makeup look that I get with this. Love! 04/21/2015
Love it!!! I'm very fair skinned and had triur with makeup being too orange or dark on me. This one is just perfect! 03/29/2015
Great Product!!!! I am a new bare minerals costumer and I was pretty on the fence on whether to buy this product. I have acne prone skin, so i usually didn't wear foundation out the fear of breaking out. This product is amazing. The coverage is great and it doesn't make me break out! It may only be me, but it made my skin clearer! I am not scared to use this product like I was with others. I gave this 4 star though because you have to be cautious with this product. What i mean with this is that if you are a person to touch your face oftenly, the makeup may come off. For example, my face got a little oily throughout the day so when I went to the bathroom I patted my face with a paper towel. I was shocked to see my foundation on the paper! Also, if you have oily skin, DEFINITELY get the matte foundation. Other than that, this is a great product and most definitely recommend it! 03/26/2015
Perfect! I absolutely love this product. It provides the perfect amount of coverage for my skin and gives me a really healthy glow. I really like that I don't have to use a lot. I don't like to loom like I have a bunch of makeup on, and I really enjoy how natural this makes you look. Defiantly my favorite foundation. The trick to getting it to cover more without adding more to you face I just to buff! This product does have a shine quality that I love but I you don't try matte for a more powder finish look. 03/23/2015
Wonderful Foundation! I had used bareescentuals in the past buy didn't apply correctly and decided to stop using. I decided to try it again, and apparently watched the video in more detail. I love this product, the coverage it gives, the easy way it is applied, and how nice it looks. The color I chose is just right for me. I may go to another shade in the summer if necessary. Love it! 03/21/2015
grammie904 I have used Bare Minerals for sixteen years now. Lived in the north and used liquid since my teens. When I moved south, liquid was too heavy. I switched to Bare Mineral products and haven't had any problems. I am now 70 years old and love the way my skin looks and feels. The prices are reasonable. I do wait for promotions though. The shipping is fair. Never had to use customer service online. 03/20/2015
Love it I had to have a friend help me learn how to best apply it, but after that I just loved it. She showed me how to put a little powder in the cap and then apply it to the brush with lots of circular motions in the cap to really get it evenly distributed on the brush for even distribution on the face. 03/15/2015
so sad I wanted to love this makeup - I had just recently gotten my skin super clear after changing my skincare regimen and I wanted to switch over to a makeup that was lighter while still offering adequate coverage. I will start off by saying that I have had pretty oily, problematic skin since about the 7th grade. I switched to this after having been using Tarte loose powder foundation because like I said, I wanted something a bit lighter. At first, I thought that it looked really nice but by the second day of using it, I noticed that I had many small breakouts around my chin and right cheek. As I mentioned earlier, my skin has been VERY clear lately and this product is the only thing that I had used that was different that I could link the recent breakouts to. I also noticed that it made my skin very oily after only an hour or so but that may just be because I have oily skin to begin with. Overall, I am very sad that this product did not work for me, because I have heard great things from other people. 03/13/2015
Perfection! This is the only foundation that I use! I have very sensitive skin and this does not bother it at all. I use the flawless face brush to get full coverage and it does not look caked on. Stays on 10-12 hours without the need for touchups. I love this foundation much more than any drugstore and highend product that I've tried! 03/11/2015
Did NOT help my skin. After changing many different lifestyle habits around to better my skin, my makeup was the ONE THING I had no changed. I thought the Neutrogena Skin Clearing liquid foundation was working well, except i still had some acne forming. I decided to INVEST about 100$ into this makeup to see better results, knowing the mineral makeup would be healthier for my skin. How disappointed I was in this makeup does not explain what I feel. I'm only 21 years old and so making a 100$ investment into makeup sounds crazy, but I was desperate to find the final solution to my skin problems. After a few weeks of use my skin had not cleared up at all, but instead CYSTIC acne had started to form. I sometimes get cystic acne but not to the extent that I got it after using this makeup. On top of that I felt the need to touch up the makeup throughout the day. I do not have sensitive skin so I do not know why this has happened. I would not buy it again and have since returned to my Neutrogena makeup which has cleared my skin. Since I spend the money, I'm willing to keep trying out the mineral makeup on days that I do not need heavy coverage and see how it fares. 03/09/2015
Nice makeup for beginners. Bareminerals is a nice makeup if you are just getting into the makeup game. It is natural which I like and it is easy to apply. I like the fact that they offer kits because that makes buying makeup more affordable. My only complaint is that I do find that I have to use concealer to cover any problem areas before applying the foundation, otherwise you can still see the imperfections thru the makeup. But other then that I do love bareminerals. 03/09/2015
One of the best luminous sheer to full coverage foundations! As a makeup artist I try many different types of foundation. I was skeptical about using this foundation until my friend gave me a makeover. I can proudly say that this BM original foundation has been my staple for 6 months! I can create the luminous full coverage look I desire without the worry of it melting off, or looking cakey. To perfect my makeup look I use the Prime Time original primer. I also visited a boutique to learn better techniques for the application. The right tools make all the difference. :0) I use the tapered face, and full coverage BM brushes to build the coverage I want, and the Flawless Radiance Brush to set my foundation using the pure radiance mineral veil. This foundation will leave a beautiful luminous finish that is perfect for anyone with combination or dry skin types. 03/04/2015
Best Foundation I've used a lot of different brands of makeup and I've never found anything like Bare Minerals! The foundation covers well and does not leave my skin feeling oily. I also have had problems with cystic acne and the purity of this makeup helps combat my breakouts! I'll never use a different foundation. 03/02/2015
Makes my skin appear very oily I have been using this product for about 2 months now. It makes my skin have a glowy effect and looks nice for about 2 hours but then after the 2 hours my skin looks very oily and the makeup rubs off easily. If there are any more bare minerals products that don't make my skin look so shiny, I would love to try it! 02/26/2015
Love it! I absolutely love the coverage. Totally exceeded my expectations. 02/21/2015
OMG I love it! This is now my favorite foundation! I use it almost everyday. It offers superb coverage, and doesn't make my skin oily. 02/20/2015
Best coverage and clean smooth finish I have been using this foundation since 2006! It's amazing coverage and if your looking for full it's buildable. Feels like I don't have any makeup on at all and I love the finished smooth look. 02/19/2015
Best coverup I have ever used I've been using the original foundation spectrum for about 3 years and it has been the best decision I've made! I've always had the worst acne since I was 10 & I'm 18 now and ever since I started using this my acne has reduced significantly! Also I have very dry skin so this helps! 02/15/2015
Finally ran out I've been a BE user since 2010 and I use all of BE's foundations, depending on my mood, my skins mood, and how fast I need to be ready. I like to purchase kits because they come with original foundation and I always have some. To my surprise, I ran out for the first time in years. So since I was going to be in the area of a store I was off to the store for the first time since 2010. I wish there were a boutique closer to where I live. 02/14/2015
Easy and awesome! I don't normally wear makeup because I never liked liquid makeup. I walked into an actual Bare Minerals store and they gave me a free demonstration. I was so amazed by how flawless my skin looked compared to before...skin irritation redness, sun damaged skin discoloration. It didn't hide everything but just made it look a lot better. Bonus: it's all powder! It is so easy to apply and so now I use it every day! 02/12/2015
Best foundation out there! I have noticed a BIG difference in my skin after using Bare Minerals makeup for almost a year! I started using this foundation and then over time ordered makeup for everything I need. The only thing I haven't tried is the mascara! This foundation is so light, it feels like I'm not wearing any makeup! It looks so natural but covers my "imperfections" flawlessly! Pair this with the must have Tinted Moisturizing Gel and your face will thank you!! Plus this product also makes you lose 10 pounds! -hah, kidding! But really, if you are questioning using this product then trust a person you don't know and get it! *I am still using the same container of foundation that I bought almost a year ago!! This will last forever! **this product will not make you lose weight...you don't need to anyway, you are beautiful and you only get one body so love it! Plus, you are buying the best makeup out there and you will look awesome! Rock it, girl! ;) 02/05/2015
LOVE IT! STARTING TO USE BARE MINERALS MAKEUP WAS THE BEST THING I'VE EVER DONE TO MYSELF! THIS FOUNDATION MAKES YOUR SKIN LOOK SMOOTH AND GLOWING! 01/23/2015
