bareSkin Pure Brightening Serum Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 20 - null
I wasn't too impressed
I was so excited to try this foundation, when I shake it I notice it leaks a bit, other people are saying it's great coverage, that's why I bought it, I have some scars from acne and a few breakouts and when I wore this foundation, it almost looked as if I had no makeup on. You can see all my problem areas still :( also it made my skin look very, shiny, is it supposed to? I applied it with the Perfecting Face Brush and I wasn't sure how much foundation I was supposed to put in the brush but I built it up and still felt like I wasn't getting any coverage. Maybe I wasn't using enough foundation or applying it wrong? Am I the only one that had this problem?
I have fair sensitive skin that's prone to breakouts. I get oily in some areas and dry patches in others. This foundation is strangely watery. After application it looked oily rather than dewy. The coverage is moderate but buildable. I hate that my face feels greasy when I wear it alone. However, it works well if I wear powder over it to absorb the excess oils.
Love this foundation
This product is amazing. Nice coverage without settling into pores or those pesky wrinkles. My skin looks smooth and younger. I have used one drop and that is plenty. The bottle is messy but storing it in an upright position has improved the issue. I've looked for a nice liquid foundation for a while, and this is perfect for me. Great product
Major Packaging Flaw
I love this product. Love, love, love it. The color bare shell is spot-on for my skin. The consistency is divine. It is buildable and sets just perfectly, however; I will not purchase another bottle until they figure out the packaging. It is utterly frustrating that the product totters between leaking inexplicably or becoming completely clogged. I've disposed of all three bottles that I have owned with what I believe to be a good quarter of product remaining in the bottle. It simply will not dispense. I've attempted "unclogging" with safety pins, etc... nothing. That, coupled with drops covering my counter and the fact that its just dang hard and cumbersome to use, has complete turned me off to an otherwise stellar product. Note that mine is part of a lengthy list of reviews from consumers with similar issues. Is anyone listening?
Great product Poor packaging
Loved this product after trying it during a visit to botique in local mall. I've been a user of bareMinerals powder foundation for years but loved bareSkin so much thought I would give it a try. I'm not one to write reviews but my frustration has reached a level that I now feel I must share with others. This product is expensive and I'm fed up with watching it disappear due to leaking out of the bottle. After shaking (required) the foundation erupts out of the bottle leaving a gooey mess and $$$ worth of product in the garbage. I've tried shaking and letting it sit for a few seconds, or shaking and tapping bottle on counter to help it "settle," but neither method has worked. This foundation works well but the bottle will prevent me from ever buying again. Not worth the money once you consider the waste.
I really wanted to love this
I'll start off by saying that I've been using BM foundations for years. I have sensitive, acne-proned skin and started off using the original mineral foundation, then switched to the compact Ready foundation which is my absolute FAV. When BareSkin made its debut I was stoked because all other liquid foundations I've tried in the past have made me break out horribly. So I gave it a try.
I went into a boutique & got color matched and LOVED the result. HOWEVER, a week or two after using it I began to hate it. The packaging is horrible, SOOOO much product is wasted it's a shame considering the price.
2nd: This foundation gets on EVERYTHING. I use 2 drops, sometimes 3, if I need extra coverage. I use a primer, I set it with loose powder AND I use Urban Decays makeup setting spray and this foundation STILL will rub onto anything. Your hands, your phone, clothes, etc. I llve wearing liquid foundation but unfortunately I have to switch back to the compact Ready powder foundation.
Hate the bottle!
Love the product but like so many of the reviewers I hate the bottle. I have wasted soooo much of it from having it oozes from the top after shaking it and then opening it. Could I get that product back? It is a terrible design. Need a price reduction to compensate for all the waste. New bottle please!!
Very nice product but super messy
I don't know what to think about this. It's good foundation, makes your skin look very nice. BUT. Even you need only two or three drops of it, every single time at least another three drops goes to waste. This bottle leaks very bad, I don't know if I just had bad luck with it and it's not normal for the bottle. Foundation comes out as lava from volcano and the whole lid is very messy since it always leaks there. I keep the bottle in standing position so that shouldn't be a problem. It's a bummer to buy a 30 bucks foundation and 30 bucks brush when half (or more) of the foundation goes to waste and the brush is impossible to clean.
So two stars only because the foundation itself is perfect (5 stars).
smooth, nice color, use just a little hate the bottle
I also hate the bottle... it leaks, i end up using the stuff that has leaked out of the bottle rather than using a couple of drops, the cover cracked, need new delivery system,
Love the product. Hate the bottle.
I love the way it makes my skin look flawless and feel soft. The only problem I had was that the bottle leaks and the product oozes out of the top when removing the cap after shaking. It would be much more efficient with a pump dispenser.
I've tried this in 2 separate colors, 01 (Bare Porcelain) and 02 (Bare Shell). I'm really disappointed to see BE succumb to demands for a liquid foundation and have this be their solution. Unlike the mineral foundation, you can SEE this product sitting on top of your skin; it will 100% look like you are wearing makeup. It doesn't feel light on your skin either, you can feel it unlike their mineral foundation. Even with primer, it transfers onto clothing and if you scratch your face even as light as you can you'll have product caked under your fingernails. If I want the ease of liquid application, I use Na-PCA mixed with the mineral foundation and get awesome results without having to compromise.
im so in with this foundation serum. it has the best coverage. i start off with 2 droplets for half of my face.and that does full coverage for me.
some times i will do 1 droplet here and there and then original bare minerals powder over it and gives me the best coverage. its so amazing it covers everything it glides on , and u don't feel like ur wearing any foundation and that is one thing i luv about it. before using bare minerals i use to use other foundations and i would get hot flashes cause i felt like my skin could not breath. but ever since perfecting serum i do not get like that any more.
please try it and always make sure u shake the bottle before u use it.. u have to! to make sure it mixes since it doesn't have binders and all the bad stuff.. so don't forget shake it!!! before every use..
I'm from Hong Kong and I am a big fan of bareminerals since I used the matte powder foundation and the mineral veil. Then, I'm very curious on the bareskin so I went to the store and got one. However, after I used it for 3 consecutive days, my skin became very itchy and full of redness but I originally not sensitive skin. After my skin recovered, I gave one more chance to it but the result was just the same. I really wonder why it is so different from the powder foundation.
I was excited to try the new foundation which has fewer chemicals than the one I have used for years. I found it to be extremely greasy on my normal to dry skin. I had to apply powder several times a day. Unfortunately, I had to go back to my old foundation.
Packaging needs serious makeover
Love the product, however, I had to return mine to ULTA, because each time i used it, it bubbled out just as much. Please put it in a pump! I loved the way it felt, but just can't justify the overwhelming waste! New packaging, and it would get 5 hearts, no doubt! Bummed I had to go with another brand.
love the foundation makes skin look flawless but I was so disappointed with the size of the bottle in my auto delivery. I have also had an awesome experience with there customer service. I truly love every product I have ever used .I truly wish they would add more products like eyeshadows and complexion rescue to the auto delivery..
lLove bareSkin foundation
Love bare Skin foundation. It covers well and looks finished and is easy to apply. My only complaint about this products is the bottle. It leaks and gets very messy. At the price of the product there is a lot of waste from the leaking bottle. Please do something about the bottle because I love the product but, will have to find something else if this isn't rectified.
I really enjoy this foundation. I typically have dry skin and this foundation doesn't accentuate the dryness. It also gives me a flawless look! Love it.
Best foundation EVER but terrible packaging
This is the ONLY liquid foundation I have ever found that I can use every day. The brush is amazing and makes application a breeze. However, the bottle almost makes me want to find something else (almost...). It leaks everywhere and is a huge mess. I bought a new bottle because my old one was nearing the end and took way too much time to clean up then apply. I can't travel with it and am paranoid the bottle will tip over in my drawer. This is my favorite bare minerals product ever but PLEASE fix the bottle!!!!
Kinda love, mostly hate.
So I used the original foundation for years before switching to their compact Ready foundation. I loved that so much that I decided to try other Bare Minerals foundations out of curiousity. When I first put this makeup on, using the brush designed for it, I loved it! It looks great and so natural. However, it wore off very quickly and looked spotty. Within an hour, I look like a wreck. So I tried it with Bare Minerals Prime Time, but it still wore off. I added their mineral veil to my routine but still no change. I really wanted to love this, but I'm disappointed in Bare Minerals when it comes to this product. It also settles into my lines while somehow also laying right on top of my skin. It's very odd, but I wouldn't waste your money. Stick with what you know and love.
I like my bare skin better
The word 'serum' in it's name fooled me. I thought this would be like a tinted moisturizer- something that would moisturize my face. No. It does create coverage, but the result looks cakey. I used a sample packet and only used half of it so it's not like I used a whole lot. It doesn't spread well over skin either. It is not flawless. It made my skin more dry. I'd be curious to try their tinted moisturizer. But this product is the worst face makeup I've put on my face. I immediately took it off- I like my real bare skin way better than this makeup. Sample it before you buy.
Totally awesme with one big drawback
I absolutely loved how smoothly this makeup went on, and how build-able it was. It was much easier to get more coverage with it than with the original foundation which has been my product of choice for 5 years. However, thirty minutes after I put my make-up on I touched my face and the foundation was all over my hand. The foundation never dried or soaked in to my skin. Most likely after I get through the small bottle that came with the bare skin kit I will switch back to the Original Foundation or try the new Complexion Rescue Cream.
This product is amazing and flawless. And when you use the brush they recommend, it turns out even better! My new favorite product.
Love this product, please just fix the bottle!
Other than the bottle, this foundation is beautiful. I will keep using it.
Every time I use this, I waste product. I tilt the bottle to dispense a drop or two of the foundation, and then, when the bottle is standing upright on my counter, more comes out of the hole in the top! I've already taken what I need, so this extra often ends up dribbling down the top of the bottle and getting dried up, because there's no way to return it to the bottle. I'm not squeezing the bottle at all, just shaking it gently to dispense a drop or two. I would suggest changing to a pump bottle, or just a bottle with a cap, over this one.
Bottle Leaked over 1/2 product out into lid...
Over the time I had this, I didn't even get to use the full bottle! Every time you'd shake bottle to mix, etc., you'd open lid to find the foundation leaked all over. Even if it was just in my makeup bag between uses, the foundation would still somehow be leaking out into lid area, & outside of bottle was always oily feeling. EXTREMELY DISAPPOINTED!
I just started using this foundation about two weeks ago after getting matched at a BM Boutique and I love it! The coverage of the powder is good, but this is so much better for me on some of my problem areas. It truly makes my skin look flawless! I also purchased the brush and I think it is a great tool to use. Other liquid foundations I usually used my fingers, but never felt like I was getting a full, even application, and with the brush I feel like I get exactly that. One of the most helpful things I learned by going in is that they said to shake it from SIDE to SIDE, rather than up and down. This keeps it from oozing out of the top as soon as you open it. I have been doing that every time I've used it and I haven't any any problems with excess foundation being wasted.
I like the coverage because I don't need full coverage so that works for me. The design of the bottle is what I HATE! I wonder how much foundation is wasted from it involuntary oozing from the top. It creates a mess and then extra foundation is left inside the cap that I can't get to. It is definitely a waste of money.
BEST FOUNDATION EVER!
I absolutely love this foundation! Have used bare minerals powder foundation for 12+ years, as I got older it didn't work with my older skin. Tried many ....many foundations.....was not happy with any of them....decided i would have to settle with "ugly"....until i tried this foundation a few months ago!!! It is wonderful...... You HAVE to use the primer ...let that dry...then apply foundation (i prefer my fingers to the brush, it blends much better) and you HAVE to use the compact powder to set it. Thank YOU BARE ESCENTUALS!!! I have recommmended a lot of others to try this foundation as well!!!
More shades needed.
Though Bare Almond is a very good match to my skin color, its sad that Bare Minerals do not have more shades for women of color. Bare Mocha is the darkest shade and that shades does not come close to many many darker skinned tones women.
This is a foundation as for now I plan to be my go to foundation but I write the above statement in hopes that Bare Mineral will expand their palette to include more women skin tone.
I rarely write reviews but I just had to say I very much dislike this foundation. Although it is lightweight which is a plus, it smears like crazy on my skin. throughout the day it's almost completely wiped off the center of my face and starts to settle in my creases, eyebrows, and the outside of my face. I do apply with a brush then go through And blend as best as I can with a Beauty blender and add a fair amount of powder but i still look like a hot mess by the end of the day. No matter how much I apply it never seems to cover up my imperfections. And also, this morning I was trying to squeeze it out of the bottle and it wouldn't come out! I shook it up and could hear that at least half the bottle was full so I knew I couldn't have run out. Bare minerals prouducts are usually amazing but I was not impressed at all. I will not be repurchasing this.
