Rated 5 out of 5 by Mushy I Love It!
I couldn't wait and bought this from QVC and when it arrived, watched their video on how to apply. I find that following application directions on any BE product I try always gives me optimal results. I absolutely love this foundation! I like full coverage and use a total of 4 drops, 2 at a time for each side of my face. I use the BE primer, and the foundation stays looking fresh all day. It doesn't settle into the fine lines under my eyes, or anywhere else. When I asked my niece how my makeup looked, she said my skin looked great, and it didn't even look like I was wearing makeup. The brush is absolute heaven! All of the product goes on your face, the brush actually still looks clean after application. My skin tone has improved with use. I have sensitive skin and have had no issues. I love the original and Ready foundations, and now I have another foundation to love. Congratulations on this new product, BE!
Rated 5 out of 5 by MaryV The Best New Product Since The Original
I've been using this for just over a month, and I couldn't be happier. My skin has changed so much in the last 4 years, between normal aging and treatment for breast cancer, it hasn't been for the better. The Serum Foundation is so light and so effective at evening out my complexion and leaving a smooth, flawless texture to the eye and the touch.
The Pure Brightening Serum Foundation (in concert with the rest of my bareMinerals magic) helps not only my skin, but my overall attitude every day. Thank you!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Goodtwin76 This is WONDERFUL
I have to say that I was a lil skeptical at first if I would like this as much as I like the powder I have been using forever from BE and I do! I LOVE THIS SERUM FOUNDATION SO MUCH! It only take a lil to cover your whole face and lasts all day! I have gotten so many compliments when wearing it! Love love love it! Thank you BE for another fabulous product! :-)

I bought this when it aired on QVC. I love this serum it covers everything.
Only concealer I use now is for under my eyes. I have a oily tzone and noticed
shine after half day so I put my loose foudation over it and that stopped shine. I
have big pores this serum cover them. Can't say enough good things about it. 5 drops
covers my whole face.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Silverrose How is this stuff even real?!
This stuff is amazing. I never thought in a million years there'd be a lightweight, full coverage liquid foundation that didn't make my face break out more and I'm over the moon to be proven wrong.
BareSkin feels no heavier than the original foundation and still gives beautiful, full, dewy coverage that lasts. I have combination skin and was able to wear this for 10 hours without touchups and without my makeup looking like an oil slick. I can't recommend this foundation enough.
Rated 4 out of 5 by IndyChick Best Liquid Makeup I've ever used
This liquid makeup is light and has a beautiful finish. Most liquid makeups have caused problems with my pores, and leads to acne. This one is clean and light and I haven't had any issues with acne returning. The brush does a great job applying it with a flawless finish. My only complaint is that a lot of make up seems to be "wasted" dripping down into the center of the brush. I have squeezed the brush after an application, and it releases a lot of the makeup.
Rated 3 out of 5 by sophinmiami I love it, but it could be better. Here's why...
First off, I have the most sensitive skin on the planet and I haven't broken out yet..so despite the following review, I will still continue using this foundation and hope that they eventually make some minor improvements to the formula. I bought this foundation along with the new application brush three days ago at my local Macy's. I used about 4 drops for medium coverage, but my tip to people who say they are using way more is to put 2 drops on the brush and gently dab the brush on the cheek, chin and forehead and then blend it all together once you have some foundation in every area. I tone my skin in the morning with witch hazel and then I use BM's oil control primer before applying the foundation. I finish with a light dusting of Mineral Veil. The issue I have is that even with all of that, after an hour or two depending on my activity level, the foundation begins to pool together in the oily areas of my face (chin, forehead and T-Zone) Although it is an easy fix to just dab my face and add some more powder, it's still really annoying because I live in Miami and it's the beginning of the extremely HOT and HUMID months, so I was hoping for a foundation that was not only good for my skin, but would STAY ON without a ton of extra effort and trips to the bathroom to touch up my face. Even though I'm not 100% satisfied with this formula, my face looks brighter and less red/irritated when I take it off every night compared to foundations I have previously used such as, mary-kay, MAC,Chanel, Clinique, Lancome, Estee Lauder, Revlon, Bobbi Brown, Trish McEvoy and many more... so, as you can see I've used a lot of foundations and I'd rather run to the bathroom to touch up my makeup than use another foundation that is filled with oil, parabens, fragrances among other chemicals that causes breakouts and do not belong on anyone's skin. Give it a try for yourself. I'm still playing around with it because foundation isn't always perfect the first day. Try it with or without moisturizer or primer and if you have dry patches, try putting primer or moisturizer only on those patches and then applying the foundation. It is lightweight and absorbs well into the non-oily parts of my face, while pooling together for lack of a better term on the oilier areas. I hope it works out better for you, but everyone's skin is different. Also, definitely test out the shade in-store before buying because the shades do run a little dark.
Rated 5 out of 5 by tonib1022 Best Liquid Foundation Ever!!!
Do you use liquid foundation? If you do, on Thursday (5/1), get to your nearest bareMinerals boutique and try BareSkin --- you won't regret it!! I was fortunate enough to be selected to try this product ahead of its release. IT IS WONDERFUL!! So lightweight and the coverage is amazing! Plus no breakthrough shine in the middle of the afternoon. This product does its job ALL day long! I have not used liquid since I started using BM powders 6 years ago but BareSkin is so awesome!! If I wasn't sold on BM products before (which I totally was) I am now!! Also, the brush applicator is phenomenal, applies the foundation so evenly you are left feeling like you aren't wearing anything at all! Can't say enough good things about it!!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Mindy Best "Liquid" Foundation!
I have never worn liquid foundation in my life... until now! My dry skin has always made any sort of liquid or cream stick to my dry patches and look awful :( I have used the Bare Minerals Original Foundation and Primer for years but there are just some days I wanted more coverage. The BareSkin Serum not only gives full coverage but still looks and feels so natural! It isn't a heavy liquid or cream, but a silky serum. It hydrates and conceals my skin at the same time. It is still super blendable just like the loose powder. I don't even use a primer anymore! For those who are looking for a liquid foundation that feels healthy and looks natural, while STILL concealing, stop looking! It's already here. It lasts all day as well.
Rated 5 out of 5 by carolinaford amazing!
I love love love this foundation! I have such trouble finding something that looks good throughout the day because I have such oily skin! This stuff is amazing! I loved the ladies who helped me match my color and everything! This foundation is so soft and smooth and it's not too much! I love that I only need one or two drops for my entire face! I love the brush to buff it on as well! It's amazing!
Rated 4 out of 5 by halfhoot Not as bad as the other reviews say...
After reading the other reviews, I was a little nervous about buying bareSkin. I have extremely combination skin with flaky dry patches and an oily T-zone. I have really liked this foundation WHEN I have the time to use it properly. If I moisturize and prime immediately before (letting both fully absorb into the skin), this foundation looks great and lasts all day. If I rely on last night's moisturizer or try to short-cut in any way, I have huge flaky patches after applying.
So even though I like the new formula, I will probably use rotate both this and the traditional powder depending on how much time I have to get ready in the morning.
Rated 5 out of 5 by GlamSam Best liquid foundation ever!
I have very sensitive skin and I've always liked Bare Minerals. I used the original loose foundation and then graduated to the pressed foundation because it was more moisturizing. I ended up trying multiple BB creams, CC creams, and liquid foundations over the years, hoping to find one that would provide FULL coverage, was moisturizing, and was also not oily or greasy. This is the ONLY foundation tht does all these things! My skin is smoothe, illuminated, much more youthful looking, and it keeps it soft and moisturized without causing me to break out or have an oil slick on my forehead for the day! I use the 5-6 drops recommended for full coverage and it provides just that. The brush makes it easy to apply and you do NOT have to buff hard at all to get it to blend in. 2-3 drops gives me more of a quick BB/CC cream look with a lighter coverage. I set the fondation with a very light dusting of the pressed powder foundation.
Rated 4 out of 5 by AKMD Less is More
As a former liquid foundation gal who switched to minerals and fell in love, this product is amazing. Since it is a serum based foundation it is so lightweight. Less really is more with this product. It holds up nicely for a long day, but at the end of the day your face still feels fabulous. It does a wonderful job to even out skin tone. You will have to experiment to see how this product will work best for your style, routine, and skin. Mineral veil is the perfect finishing touch to help set this foundation. The application brush is so unique and so soft. Be sure to get color matched if possible for the best shade for you since there are 20 different shades!
Rated 4 out of 5 by RunnerMom47 The best non-liquid liquid foundation EVER
I was skeptical at first, but love this stuff. It is so easy to apply, covers flawlessly (I feel so glamorous but it is super light - you don't know it is there).
A couple of suggestions - tap the container after use to avoid bubble that basically waste your product. Shake it well prior to use. Make sure the cap is on tight. Use the brush - it is wonderful!
This is not like anything else....truly a serum with your BE foundation in it. Kudos from a skeptic!
Rated 4 out of 5 by KYgirl This is NOT a liquid foundation, it's better!
Normally I would not have tried a liquid foundation. When I switched to the original Bare Minerals foundation several years ago I vowed that I would not go back to a liquid foundation however, since it was Bare Escentuals that created this Serum Foundation & I researched all the information about it, I decided that I would give it a fair chance. I still love my BE mineral foundation and will be sticking with it 90% of the time. However, I do love the BareSkin Serum Foundation.
-my skin feels& looks great after I have cleansed it
-easy to apply (the brush is Amazing!)
-works well with my other Bare Minerals products
-only takes 2 drops (less really is better)
-coverage doesn't last as long as the mineral foundation for me
-if you put too much on it can settle into fine lines & around the brows (but you can buff it back out)
Overall, I think it is a great addition to the Bare Escentuals line. If you are a liquid foundation type of girl, definitely give this a try!
Rated 4 out of 5 by BBug Just started wearing
I have only worn this for 3 days but I can tell already that the packaging is going to be a problem. It does not come out without a squeeze and then too much comes out.
I love the idea of a liquid and hope it works for me. The powder lays in my fine lines so I am hoping the liquid will not.
Rated 5 out of 5 by JewelryBel Back to Liquid? YES!
I used to LOVE liquid foundation, and then my skin became more sensitive (aging stinks sometimes). I became a BE convert but was never 100% happy with the way the powder looked at work under florescent lights (a bit dry for my taste). When I heard that BE was coming out with a liquid, it couldn't come out fast enough for me. I went into the store to become matched - and went from Fair/Fairly Light to Bare Linen. I LOVE this stuff. Even the lower level of coverage is great. It feels so light and looks very natural. I recommend following up with the mineral veil for lasting power. Be sure to get matched, the colors are very different.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Makeupchick Love this
I originally bought this in wrong shade online and hated the way it looked. I thought it was the product. I went to store and was matched by salesperson with the correct color. I love it now. The finish is soft and natural looking. With the right shade, it does not settle into fine lines. Love it.
Rated 5 out of 5 by LMirra I may be a liquid foundation convert...
To be honest, if I hadn't been sent a free bareSkin liquid foundation as part of the Ambassador program, I don't know if I would have tried it. I have hated all liquid foundations I have tried in the past, because they tend to be thick and make my skin break out, and I don't need a lot of coverage to begin with.
I was pleasantly surprised when I tried the bareSkin foundation because 1) it is WAY lighter feeling than any other liquid foundation, 2) it matches my skin tone more perfectly than the power foundation I have, and 3) my sensitive/dry skin hasn't had any issues so far and I've been using it for about a week.
I usually use two drops for my entire face and it gives me the lighter coverage I want. The brush is just awesome, and you can be more exact with the makeup application than the bigger softer brushes that go with the powder foundation.
If I had one criticism, it would be that the makeup tends to ooze out the top after you shake it while it's still right-side-up (even after you wait to open the cap) so it is often difficult to get the exact number of drops you want, it's more like ooze sometimes.
Other than that, I love it, and so far, I am liking it better than my power foundation!
Rated 4 out of 5 by PamelaStar Silky Smooth Skin!!!
BareSkin Pure Brightening Serum is AMAZING!! I left liquid makeup more than 10 years ago, with no thoughts ever to return once I feel in love with my Bare Minerals powder. I was a little apprehensive to return to liquid with fear I would have more breakouts, however I have loved my experience.
I use approximately 3 drops in the well of the applicator brush and lightly swirl my cheeks, chin, nose and forehead, then I go back to blend it all evenly. It goes on very silky smooth with a very soft finish. I then set the foundation with a light brush of my mineral veil. The color lasts longer than the power and doesn't rub off as easily. I find the color looks more natural and very flattering. I'm in love with my BareSkin!!
Rated 4 out of 5 by sherrybear love it
I normally do not like liquid that is why I began using Bare Escentuals. However, I love this.
the brush makes it so easy to get it even and smooth.
I will definitely buy it.
Rated 5 out of 5 by mafan Great coverage that feels light
I love the way this foundation is buildable. It's hard to believe that one drop goes such a long way, but it does. If you start with more than one (two drops got out once) you're going to have heavier coverage and it's really best to start lighter and blend. Four drops is enough for my face, although I end up using 6 and bringing it down my neck as well. This is plenty to cover the very noticeable redness along my neck and still look extremely natural. I'm not sure I have really got the right color for me (Bare Linen is lighter than my READY in Medium), so I do recommend getting matched in a store if you're not sure what color to use.
Rated 4 out of 5 by georgiapeach Feels like your wearing nothing!!!!
I was luck enough to be chosen as a Fab Ambassador and try BareSkin before anyone else. I have been wearing Bare Minerals for over ten years. I first started with the powder and then changed to the Ready foundation. I was a little worried about going back to a liquid since it has been so long!!! I have been wearing BareSkin for a couple of weeks and I am very happy with the results! The foundation is so silky and goes on so easy!! The brush is a definite must have!!! For me, it usually takes about four drops to give the coverage I like. It is long lasting and still looks good at the end of the day. If you live near a BE store, I would recommend going in and getting color matched. Overall, very pleased with the product.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Jfermouse Best liquid foundation ever
I love this product! It provides great, easy to build coverage. So light I can't even tell I have anything on! It also wears great. I often am gone for 12 + hours a day and my makeup still looks good when I get home. It is a must try.
Rated 5 out of 5 by happymom23 Just follow the directions, and WATCH THE VIDEOS!
I had to try this because I watched so many of the QVC presentations. I love it. I just follow the directions (shake, blend, "it's not a kiddie pool" LOL) and use a total of four drops for my whole face. Fellow BM/QVC junkies at work say it's so perfect that I look airbrushed. I like my Original foundation a LOT, but I've been dry and feeling like it was settling in the lines around/under my eyes lately. I am Medium Beige powder (after Faux Tanning), so I went for Bare Natural. It's a perfect shade match. And I LOVE THE BRUSH! This foundation lasts through a 12-plus hour nursing shift in an ER (including CPR). I am considering buying Bare Linen for times when I haven't had time to Faux Tan since I'm normally Fairly Light.
Rated 4 out of 5 by SMJO Amazing foundation
This foundation goes on smoothly with some blending and feels very soft and light on your skin! The color I received was too light, so that made it a little harder to blend, but this feels great on! It gave pretty good coverage as well.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Arsley Nice for a night out
I like this foundation, the color and coverage is very nice. It is a little heavier than I am use to, but that's only because I have not worn liquid foundation in years, it is still very light on the skin. Overall I like it, it is not something I would wear everyday, but for a nice night out.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Dancer2014 Feels great, color is off
This felt wonderful on the skin but I thought it looked very orange on my skin.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Erica J If you love liquid foundation, this ones for you!!
I am honored to be a FAB Ambassador and try Bareskin before anyone else. I have have to say that I am thrilled with my original loose foundation but was intrigued by this new option. However, I was skeptical because I absolutely hated the Ready Foundation. Bareskin did not let me down. The color match was awesome. It had staying power and great coverage. I liked the ease of application with no mess. The brush that goes with it is absolutely fabulous. I will always be a loose girl but now have another option to add to my repertoire. I recommend it. Go ahead, give it a try!
Rated 4 out of 5 by 1958fury BE has done it again!
For awhile, I started to feel like the BE powder was looking a bit dry on my skin, so I was very excited to see they'd be making a liquid foundation, especially after experimenting with some BB creams this past summer.
Upon first putting the foundation on, I was BLOWN AWAY with how quickly it smoothed and covered my skin. I'm absolutely in love with this foundation. the only con for me is that it feels a little bit greasy to the touch. I haven't used mineral veil in the past, but perhaps that could remedy the problem. Otherwise this is the best foundation I've ever used, and I didn't think anythnig could top the BE powder I've used for the past 8 years.
