Rated 4 out of 5 by Gardeness Great....but.
This product surprised me because I've used powder for so long. It is very good to cover sun spots, blemishes or other ugly things on the face.
My gripe, as with others, is the bottle. It's messy, loss of product. Also, the bottle is definitely hard to squeeze if you want just one drop. My skin is combination, mature and because of too much sun, splotchy. This product can be used heavy or light depending on what my skin needs. The brush is perfect for this product as well. Just, please, fix the packaging!

I loved the bare minerals powder foundation but wanted to try this liquid. I gave it two stars because when first applies it looks beautiful! After three hours it settled around fine lines as well as around my mouth and eyebrows. It also was already gone in many spots on my face. I had also applied a setting powder. Even my husband noticed this and said I don't like it at all. It was also disappointing calling customer service and not being able to get free shipping for a item i was very dissatisfied with. I will never order from the website again : ( I will order online from Sephora.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Nice foundation!
This is a really nice foundation... I love the way it just glides on. It gives great coverage too. I would have given it a 5 star review if it came in a bottle that didn't leak. For some reason the product backs out of the bottle and makes a mess in the lid. Other than this, I really like it.
Rated 5 out of 5 by snowywhiteowl Skin Brightening Foundation
By far, this is some of the best foundation I've ever used and having been a makeup artist for years, I've used numerous foundations. I get many compliments on my skin when wearing this. People who don't know me think I'm in my early 30's (48) and many have said my skin looks like a baby's skin (both men & women). I owe it mostly to this foundation. In the summer I wear Bare Buff and the winter, Bare Cream and transition with Bare Satin. It really does provide the skin with a flawless effect when wearing. Ok, all this being said, the bottle is totally lacking in dispensation of the product. With all the bottles, I must constantly insert a needle into the opening, even though there is plenty of product left in the bottle. Store personnel have told me about the tiny bead and yes, I've gotten past that too and it's not the problem. When I insert the needle, a lot of product shoots out. With this foundation, only a minute amount is needed for full coverage, which is awesome but, with the packaging it's almost impossible to get the needed amount without overdoing it. I LOVE the foundation but, until there is better packaging, I'll wait before I make another purchase.
Rated 5 out of 5 by naturalforlife Best foundation I have ever had.
This product is the best foundation I have ever used. I personally like to keep the all natural look and this product does that for me. I use it before applying a little of the powder foundation for extra coverage but with it alone is great coverage depending on the drops used. I used to get a lot of acne due to the other foundations I bought but the bareSkin is the only one that has not irritated my skin. I will most certainly continue buying it.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Ashlie Great Product, horrible packaging
I really loved this product. As someone always scared of liquid foundation, this product changed my mind. My main gripe and the reason I will not purchase this product again is the packaging. I've probably lost a third of the product due to the poor bottle design. I also cannot travel with it as it is such a mess. I've switched my foundations to a completely different brand but will come back to this if the bottle ever gets fixed.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nana53 Great for aging skin!
I love using bareSkin under my Bare Minerals powder foundation. It evens out the discolorations of my aging skin and helps hide some of my wrinkles. It gives me a smooth even complexion and then I use my powder foundation to "perfect" that look. It lasts all day long and doesn't cake or collect in wrinkles or creases either. I use the neutral tone with medium beige and that combination works well. Although I'm in my early 60's, I often have compliments on how nice my skin looks!
Rated 4 out of 5 by LauraWms Thought I was so over liquid foundations....
I have been a Bare Minerals woman for years. After many bad experiences with liquid foundations...sloppiness, bad color choices, and long drying times. I started with your ORIGINAL Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15 and found it to be incredible. Then I tried your MATTE Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15. It was ok. I just prefer more radiance provided by the ORIGINAL. Then I tried READY® Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 20 it wasn't for me, either. My latest purchase was bareSkin® Pure Brightening Serum. I LOVE it! I can control the coverage, great color, amazing application... my only issue with it is my eyeliner and mascara tend to smudge. I use your WELL RESTED, as well. More raves... the tinted Prime Time® BB Primer-Cream Daily Defense... ingenious!!!!
Rated 5 out of 5 by ClemEvermore BUY THIS NOW!
I was hesitant to purchase a different foundation than the one I had been using for years (CoverGirl Try Blend), but I had a gift card to a salon that sold Bare Minerals and I decided to treat myself. I read the reviews and wasn't sure I'd like it but I went for it anyways.
This foundation is extremely light feeling but gives a lot of coverage without using a ton. I bought the Heavenly Face brush to use instead of the recommended one and I like it. I've always just used my fingers to blend makeup in and I'm so glad I got the brush too.
If you are considering this foundation and I want good coverage that feels AMAZING, then this product is for you!
Rated 1 out of 5 by LaPallo Great coverage and appearance; terrible effect on skin
When I first received this product at home, I was pretty excited about it. I had watched the online video about how to apply it and had purchased the correct brush recommended for application. Both worked really well together and applied the makeup evenly and smoothly. this makeup doesn't settle into creases during the day, and I thought I had discovered my new favorite foundation. However, within 24 hours, I had a large pimple on my chin. Attributing that to any number of factors, I kept using the makeup and within another day, my entire chin broke out. by the end of the week, I had to cease using the makeup and it took another week for my skin to completely calm down and go back to break-out free. I have never had sensitive skin or major break-outs, so I would say this formulation is particularly non-skin friendly. I had to throw it away. Very disappointed.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Not impressed
I have always been more of a powder person. I have never found a liquid that looked natural on my skin. I thought this foundation would be great because of all the great reviews, not to mention I have loved just about everything BM makes. So I gave it a try.
First of all, it looks too much like I painted my face. It's kind of shiny and fake looking. No matter how light I put it on, or how much I blend, it still just looks very unnatural.
Second, I have lots of small pores/black heads on my nose that aren't very noticeable. When I use this product they shine like the stars and look so much worse than without any make up at all. The same goes for the little blond hairs around my jaw. It just highlights them and makes them very noticeable and worse than they really are. I don't have this problem with the BM original mineral powder foundation.
Third, I don't like how heavy it feels on my face. Maybe that's because I'm used to powder, but it's just got a greasy feel to it that I can't get over.
Over all, I'm sure this works great for some people, but it's just not my cup of tea! Back to the Original Powder!
Rated 4 out of 5 by TayTay LOVE
I love this foundation. I used to only wear powder foundations (from bareMinerals) but decided to try a liquid foundation, so I chose this one. When I first tried it, it stuck to the dry patches on my face, but I realized it was because I put setting powder all over my face. The next time I tried it, I only applied setting powder to the places on my face that get super oily, and it looked so much better. There were no dry patches showing. It looked smooth with a dewy finish, but not too shiny looking! The only down side to the foundation I would say is the packaging. The foundation bubbles out of the top a lot and I feel like I lose a lot of product, but overall I LOVE this foundation. It looks very natural and not cakey.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Disappointed
it has great coverage, although it made me break out a lot ! And had to stop using . If you have really sensitive skin I wouldn't recommend buying this
Rated 4 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Needs more color options
I really love this foundation, especially during the winter season. The coverage is buildable, weightless feeling, hydrating & of course the best part is the SPF. I only have 1 problem, which is the color selection, I'm very pale with straight pink undertone & even the lightest shade (Bare Porcelain) is still too yellow on my skin. If they could have a wider range of colors for super pale & super dark skin tones it would be perfect.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Is a CC product, can be drying, but otherwise perf
I LOVED this foundation. It went on beautifully, is long lasting, light yet covering -I could honestly go on and on.
Unfortunately, it completely dried out my skin, to the point of flaking. It's taken weeks to get it back to normal. It also has a color correcting ingredient in it, which I would want to know in the name, as I have no desire to color correct.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Farrah Excellent product, No bottle blues
I don't typically write reviews about items that I have purchased. Because of the great many complaints about the bottle type I was hesitant to purchase this. But due to all the praise about the product itself I decided to order it anyway. I love the product. And I love the bottle. Now I don't know anything about the brush well, but I think the bottle design is ingenious. Ladies, it is not a squeeze bottle. After shaking, all you have to do it tap it on your finger and it dispenses the exact amount for easy use. I have found that I might tap it three or four times as it dispenses less than a drop each time. I don't use a brush, just spread with my fingers. I love it. After less than one week of use, my skin feels smoother and looks less ruddy. I give this product an A+.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Shows pores.
Nice idea to have serum in the foundation, but it doesn't blend well. It also transfers easily and settles in my wrinkles. I don't like how my pores look huge with this liquid.
Rated 5 out of 5 by BrinaLee The Perfect Foundation (for me)
I absolutely love this stuff. I have very sensitive skin and like to play with levels of coverage depending on my skins condition and day versus night, work versus play etc. It goes on very smooth and matte and is extremely lightweight, I often forget I'm even wearing it. The brush is perfect for application and really buffs the foundation in flawlessly. I noticed some people complained about messiness, this has never been a problem for me. The trick is that you have to keep the bottle upright when you store it and when you shake it. I've been using it for almost 6 months and have yet to experience any spillage or messiness. it also drips out better after shaking for about 5-10 seconds. I use two drops for light coverage and 4 for heavier coverage. As you'll see in my picture I have a lot of freckles and I don't like to cover them up so this is perfect for me.
Rated 2 out of 5 by cameella SMELL, HEAVY, OILY, INFLAMMED, OVERPRICED
LOVE bare minerals and all their products so i decided to try out this foundation. Loved it in the store gave me the coverage that i needed. maybe an hour later my face felt very heavy, and oily. Maybe 3-4 hours later my face felt very hot, and irritated. THE WORST is the smell! i can't stand it. All this negativity just from one trial at the store, also reading other reviews how the bottle is horrible, i will be returning this and not even bother giving it a second chance.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Disappointing
This product is for someone that wants little to no coverage. The product is supposed to moistirize, however with weeks of using this product I have not seen results. The bottle sucks to say the least, it is extremely difficult to squeeze the makeup out. However, when the cap is on it seems that all the foundation seeps into the lid where you can't reach it. I brought the brush up designed for this product too. Overall not impressed and will not be buying this again.

I love this foundation. It's the best I have used in years. I have had no problem with it leaking all over the place. I squeeze and the drops come out perfectly. (Is a little hard to squeeze out). No problems with the brush either. My face looks air brushed and stays on all day
Rated 5 out of 5 by AshleyMarie Perfect Coverage!
I wear bare beige 08 & it matches my medium, somewhat golden undertoned skin perfectly! I really love that the coverage is buildable & it looks SO natural & feels like I'm wearing nothing at all. I am constantly asked what I use. I thank BareMinerals for complimenting, enhancing & giving life to my face! Liquid GOLD. I highly recommend to anyone & everyone looking to get the best out of their foundation.

Can you imagine how many years this 80-year-old lady has tried to find my ultimately all-around foundation? Probably 60 of them. This formulation hit the bulls-eye for me in ease of application, long-lasting time frame without caking, and the unexpected youthful glow that brings compliments from strangers on how healthy I look.

I just received this product in the mail after a friend had been using it. Her skin always looks amazing. I always use the Bare Minerals Matte Powder foundation. I was looking for something to help cover my large pores on my cheeks and nose because the powder was not really doing this. In cosmetology school I had learned a liquid foundation should be set by a powder but I had never followed that. This morning I applied my new Bare Skin foundation and it looked so natural! It filled in my pores so much that I hardly had to use concealer. I did put some powder over the top to set it, but I may try not doing this tomorrow. What a great light-weight-barely-there foundation that fills in and covers large pores! Thank you bare minerals!
Rated 3 out of 5 by 2gogirl softer bottle, please
Love this product, but with arthritic fingers it is way too difficult to get out of its' bottle. When the bottle or container allows easier dispensing, i would like to buy again. Dispensing is either not at all or a splatters that go everywhere.
Rated 5 out of 5 by BEfanNJ Pleasantly surprised!
I've been using the original powder foundation for years and decided to try this bareSkin Serum foundation. I was a little skeptical that the 1-2 drops would do the job...but boy...was I wrong. In fact, for daily wear, I only need 1 drop per side and the coverage is AMAZING. It's amazingly smooth and applies effortlessly. So far, I am loving it and so glad I decided to try it. I am not having any issues with getting the drops out of the bottle. You just have to be do a slight squeeze in the middle of the container. Since I only need 2 drops for my entire face this bottle will last me a long time, $ well spent.

I purchased the serum foundation and the brush, which I thought was quite expensive. I like the serum foundation, but not the bottle.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Beulahbelle Horrible Packaging Ruins Amazing Product
I love this foundation! A small bit goes a long way, and the coverage is unbeatable. The texture and finish are flawless. Unfortunately, it comes in the most poorly designed bottle I have ever experienced. Like other reviewers, I also have the "too little or too much" issue. It either does not come out, or half the bottle splurts out. However, my biggest complaint is that the bottle is completely unusable for anyone suffering from RA, arthritis, or any other hand or joint issues. I would gladly give this wonderful product 10 hearts if it weren't for the bottle. Please improve the packaging!
Rated 2 out of 5 by Senior Bottle needs to be redesigned.
love the product. HATE the bottle. 3/4 of the time, nothing will come out of the bottle or half the bottle comes out all at once. I have arthritic hands and it should not hurt to put on foundation.
