bareSkin Pure Brightening Serum Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 20 - null
Easy application, but not enough coverage. :(
I was thrilled to be chosen as a Fab Ambassador, as I love BE products and can't resist trying out new additions to the line. The bareSkin Pure Brightening Serum Foundation has an unbelievably silky texture, and application with the brush was a dream...easy blending and no fingers full of foundation! The product looked nice and natural on my skin, but did not provide quite enough coverage, especially with regard to my dark undereye circles. I combined it with the Creamy Concealer, but still feel like I get just a little bit better coverage with the combo of the Creamy Concealer and my READY Foundation. I plan to try the Serum Foundation again, with and without primer to see if that makes a difference. Several other users have also commented on the "build-ability" of the formula, so I may try adding more in the under eye area to see if that helps. All in all, a good product, best suited for someone who wants a light, natural-looking coverage and super easy application. Love BE!!
I LOVE IT!
I was really waiting on pins and needles for this product to arrive. I LOVE my original foundation, but my face was looking dry. The serum came and my face looks amazing! The dryness is gone and my face has a nice glow, and a smooth texture! It's so easy to apply, the brush is soft and silky and a little goes a loooonng way! It was so worth the wait! What an amazing, amazing product!
Great new product
I started using Bare Minerals a little over a year ago and was a devotee of liquid foundation and feared using powder. However, I have been hooked since my first use of the original foundation. When I saw this product and was asked to test it as a FAB Ambassador I was so excited.
I love the brush and application of the product is easy. The product applies well and you get a lot of coverage from a very minimal amount of product which is nice. The coverage is consistent and even and gives you a flawless look. While I really like having this in my arsenal for an alternative to my original BM foundation. The lasting power on the Bare Skin is not quite as impressive as the original which is why I gave 4 stars versus 5. I can apply my original foundation at 7am and come home after 9pm and still loo flawless (no primer used here either!) and that is not the case with the Bare Skin, I feel like I have to reapply mineral veil throughout the day which I never do with the original.
Overall a great product for someone who loves liquid foundation.
This product is AMAZING!!! I love it! I am hooked! This is not a liquid. It is anything but. I don't know how they did it, but you have to try it. I used all this weekend and family, friends and strangers were coming up to me telling me how great my skin looked. You must try it!
I am in LOVE!!!
I have been using Bare Minerals for YEARS... I have been using the READY foundation and liked it a lot, though I felt I had to use a lot to get the coverage I wanted and I never felt I had the correct match for my skin. Then I was sent BareSkin to try and I was very skeptical, I have never like liquid foundation, the first time I tried it I sat down in front of my mirror before work with tons of time to spare because I thought "Hey, I'm trying something new it's going to take a few tries to get it right" NOPE, 4 drops later my face was completed covered. Color matched to perfection. I was instantly in love. (plus with the time it saved me I was able to leave early and get coffee! ALWAYS a plus!) I will be using BareSkin from now on and I am soooo happy Bare Minerals has come out with this fabulous foundation! You will not regret trying this product!!
I was so excited to try the bareSkin foundation, and it totally lived up to the hype! I love the design of the brush and the luxurious feel of putting it on. It doesn't feel like you have any makeup on, but provides buildable coverage. The term "brightening serum" is accurate because your skin glows! Love it!
I just tried my bareSkin for the first time today...I LOVE IT!! It goes on very smooth...at first I didn 't think that I was going to like the shade, thought it was going to be too dark, but turns out it was perfect. The application brush is amazing and very easy to use. I still continue to use my bare Minerals powder...but will use the bareSkin as well and when I run out of powder...bareSkin will be the only thing that I use.
My Faith in Liquid Foundation Has Been Restored!
I've been using bareSkin for almost 2 weeks. I'm loving it! The brush provides amazing coverage. I was actually using too much the first few days, but now I've found the perfect combo: One drop per side of my face and one drop for my forehead and to finish off (I was originally using a total of 5 drops and it felt a little heavy).
I love the loose minerals too, but I always manage to get them on my shirt. No longer a problem with bareSkin. I definitely recommend it!
I used to wear liquid before I even got into Bare Minerals... When I started wearing their make p they said they didnt do liquid. I was a little mad, but then fell fall for the products. Now that there is liquid.. I AM IN LOVE! My skin is so soft and you do not need a lot for coverage..
Will be sticking to my Powder...
I got to try this product early as a FAB Ambassador. Thank you for choosing me; I had a blast being a part of the program!
When I first tried this product, I couldn't believe the way it felt going on! It didn't feel like I was putting makeup on AT ALL! I loved the application brush, and how creamy, yet light, the foundation felt. The color I received (Medium Beige) may have been a little too dark for me, but I still liked it. Immediately after application, I fell in love with the way it looked! My skin looked flawless, and I felt like I had no makeup on whatsoever.
However... Within 2 hours of hardly any activity, the foundation had all but disappeared! It was still very noticeable in any small fine lines I have, and along the edges of my eyebrows and my hairline. I could understand if I had been sweating or rubbing my face, but I had been simply watching TV on the couch. I went to FaceBook, where people suggested doing the mineral vale to set the foundation; so I tried this, to no avail. I work at a gym, so I need something that can withstand activity. I loved being able to try the product, and I'm sad to say I won't be purchasing it. I still love my powder foundation, and everything else!!
This WILL improve your life!!
I have been using Bare Skin for about a week now. My skin is softer. Lines are less noticeable because the product does not settle into them! I have been told that my skin is glowing! I love, love, LOVE Bare Skin. I imagine the benefits will only get better with more use. The brush is so easy to use, and I don't have that liquid line on my jaw like most liquid foundation users! I also don't have liquid all over my fingers! This is a MUST HAVE for anyone!
Great liquid foundation!
I have very dry skin so the one thing I always disliked about BE is the fact that it was all powder and made me feel drier. I love the idea of a liquid, particularly this lightweight of one. It is easy to use, covers beautifully, but my only reservation with this is that I don't feel it stays. It rubs off easily and was all over my sunglass rims/nose piece. Given I'm dry, I still used primer so maybe I shouldn't use the extra liquid of that and go with this on bare skin. I am going to try that next as others seem to think it lasts whereas mine is amazing first thing in the morning but I actually get oily or wet looking later in the day and have it rub off.
I am the pickiest person when it comes to foundation--I have tried, and returned, everything, and am constantly searching for the perfect fit. I have true combination skin, more on the oily side, and am very prone to breakouts/redness from sensitivity.
I pre-ordered this from QVC after seeing some great reviews on social media. I am truly blown away. Not only does this provide excellent, build-able coverage, but it stays ALL DAY. Nothing stays on my oily skin, but somehow this seems to seep up my extra oil through my t-zone while leaving my skin looking fresh, glowy, and seemingly makeup free. If you have DRY skin, I would still recommend this product, but you must moisturizer before.
My acne is better, my redness is tamed, and I am finally happy. This product + brush is a true game changer. Thank you BE for providing a safe, outstanding foundation that I can use (and LOVE) every day!
May be for you, it wasn't for me!
I was part of the group blessed to be able to try this early. I LOVE MY BE, and wanted to share that before my review of this product.
The product is very drying, settles into fine lines and wrinkles, and the side of my nose, a very odd thing. It even made me look like I had wrinkles that I don't have, especially after wearing it for a couple of days, because not only did it appear dry and cakey (more drying of the skin than a cakey finish, so it's a little hard to explain), but, it actually was drying my skin out while it was on, so that every day my skin was drier than the day before. I want to make sure and say, these results were with the best possible skin care, and that, frankly, saved my skin during use, and will help it recover. Even as I write this review, I have pimples forming/showing, and my skin is now overproducing oil to compensate from use of the Bare Skin liquid foundation.
It also does not cover well, and I don't have that much to cover. One tiny area that's a little red, just looked more pronounced and that doesn't happen with my Bare Minerals Original Foundation.
The good news. This is a truly innovative product and formulation (I do not work for the company, I just analyzed it a lot, because I really wanted to like it).
The Bare Minerals Perfecting Face Brush (sold separately) is necessary! It is amazing, synthetic bristles, and shake (shake well), drop and buffing the foundation on, is a dream application. There is nothing else like it in foundation.
If you're going to order this online, trust me, go by the descriptions of each shade more so than the color photos. I tried two. Bare Cream (05) which is for the most golden light skin, and it is!!! It is VERY golden/yellow!!! The second one I tried was a much better match for me, Bare Linen (03), the "neutral" of the light family. Even the Bare Linen skews a little yellow. It's not your average neutral, at all. So when in doubt with shade matching, if you are a cool tone, don't go for Neutral. I could have easily also probably worn Bare Shell (02) the only "cool" tone in the light category of shades.
Another bonus, and a major thumbs up on the formulation is that the SPF 20 (and the product) are truly "weightless." A lot of products say that, but they're not. We've all tried moisturizers and other products with SPF, I have, one that's from a great company that also has an SPF that is also a physical block and natural. I could "feel" that product on my skin, and sometimes, no matter how hard a company tries, any moisturizer with SPF will also have a kind of smell to it as well.
Bare Minerals, Bare Skin Liquid Serum Foundation, is truly weightless, fragrance free, even with the SPF you can't "feel" it, but it has to be a good match for your skin. For me, that means not at all even the slightest bit dry, combination or sensitive. But if you have skin like mine, that is great with other products from BE, the only way you'll know if this works for you, is to try it first. I suggest going to a boutique (if you can), I though I haven't had one done, get a "Make Under." That way you can wear the product for a day and see if it works for you.
I will continue to use my Bare Mineral Original Foundation, and many other products from BE!
Peace and Beauty!
Nice foundation but not enough coverage for me
I've worn the Original and Ready foundation for years and was excited to try the new liquid foundation. I wear Fair in the original foundation and Fairly Medium in Ready. I wound up being Bare Shell 02 in this new liquid foundation and the color is just right. The brush is very nice and works well to get an even coverage. It really goes on smoothly and looks very natural. Unfortunately for me, I need more coverage than this provides. I ran out of the correcting concealer so I just ordered a new one so I can try it with the liquid foundation. I would definitely recommend this for those ladies who want a natural look or those who love liquid foundation.
I love this, seriously.
I couldn't wait for this to be available on BE so I did order early off QVC ...
Background: I go back and forth between the Ready foundation and a high end BB cream. I like the feel of the powder, but old habits die hard and I love the look of a cream foundation plus the skin care benefits. So when I heard BE was doing a liquid, I had to try it. I am not disappointed....
I love that you can use a few drops and the application brush perfectly to buff this on to your skin. It's very easy to control the application as well as how much goes where, unlike a typical foundation brush. It really does feel like a lightweight serum in texture. I forgot I was wearing it more than a couple times.
Since it is so new I cannot speak to the long term skin benefits, but it's very easy to use and looks very natural on. I have been following it with the mineral veil and AOFC/Radiance powders to achieve that perfect satin finish look.
The only qualms I have so far are that I am Fairly Light in regular foundation, nearly a Medium in the Ready, and I ordered Bare Linen in the serum foundation and it's not a perfect match.... It is an ok match, I could probably go a shade darker, but without being able to get shade matched I took a shot.
Also I am oily T-zone so I do get a bit shiny after a couple hours, but that happens with every foundation I use, it's not just this one. I was just hoping that maybe it wouldn't for some miraculous reason.
So since I can't speak about the long term benefits plus my oily t-zone I did ding it a star, just can't give it full on 5 stars on blind faith alone....
All in all I am very happy and will probably choose this over the Ready and my BB cream for future use
* if you wait til the boutiques get this I would say you should get shade matched. I think what is recommended based off the color guilde-line pictures (QVC) might be slightly off a bit as my shade I bought is a bit too light.
BE, you nailed it with this product!!!
I am a long-time BE mineral foundation user, and I am totally in love with this new product. I wear Medium Beige in the original, and I wear Bare Beige in this product. I love the powdered foundation, and the last time I wore liquid foundation was when I was playing dress-up with my mom's make-up 20 years ago. I was very skeptical about this product, but I am sold!
My skin has several dark spots and acne flaws. After having my son, my complexion just does not look the same. This product gives the appearance of a smooth complexion in just seconds and I look years younger. I am only 30, but now my skin has a seamless look. It also helps cover the dark circles I have from lack of proper sleep =)
I was not sure how I would feel about "painting" liquid foundation on with a brush, but I love it! I am able to get the heavier coverage I need with only 4 drops.
The product stays on very well, as I wear it to the gym and it does not come off.
I am totally sold on this product! You have GOTTA try it =)
Coming from no liquid...
I am 67. I have fabulous skin. However, I also have sensitive skin. So, Bare mInerals has been great for me. I also use Body Shop Foundation that uses Olive oil, which is wonderful. However, this time, the liquid is so light, feels so good and looked so natural, I just added blush and eye makeup and I was done. I also feel that his foundation is part of the skin care promise Bare Minerals is commited to. Color: If it is too light, use all over color. But, better too light than too dark. And, this is supposed to be brightening. It delivers what it promises and more...
Nice To Have Another Option ♥
Just received the new BareSkin Foundation and couldn't wait to try it! Once you apply this foundation it truly feels like you aren't wearing a thing on your face. The coverage is nice and lightweight...I didn't do my whole routine since I was so excited to try it, so I just washed my face and applied right after on my clean skin. It looked great even without using a primer, but I think I will try it with a primer too just to see what the difference might be if any. I will also use my concealer beforehand since I skipped that step too. But overall, I think it's a great foundation! I wear Medium Beige in the Ready Foundation so I got Bare Natural in the BareSkin Foundation because I fall on the lighter side of medium and it seemed to be a pretty good match for me. :-) One more thing, a little goes a long way, so be sure to use it just like Jessica shows you in the video presentations on the Q...just start with 2 drops in the reservoir and apply to one whole side of your face, if you think you need more then just add 2 more drops at a time. The brush is fantastic at applying this foundation!
Looking forward to trying it out more in the coming days! :-)
This new bareSkin foundation has blown my mind. Bare Minerals has done it again and created a product that speaks for the people. The foundation goes on easily with the awesome brush, not to mention the amount of foundation used for each application is very minimal. I feel that bareSkin foundation creates a hassle free environment because you are not dealing with the powder foundation. (Don't get me wrong, I still lvd the powder foundation as well, I just love bareSkin more!!!)
I love the fact that bareSkin foundation sticks to the bare minerals modo of less if more. I don't even feel like I am wearing foundation. This product ROCKS!!!
This product is a must buy ladies and gents ;)
Nice...but in my case the jury still out.
I'm very grateful to have been chosen to receive this product before release; however, I am still iffy on product.
I have mild rosacea and I don't know if its a coincidence or not but, the skin on my nose and on one of my cheeks has been irritated - red and peeling on the sides of my nose and little bumps on the side of my check. Plus my pores on my nose appear larger, than normal.
Maybe I receive a color that was too light, I am need almost double the amount of the recommended drops and the foundation still doesn't cover the redness, especially on my nose.
I'm so disappointed, I really want to love this product. The other BE foundations (original & ready) cover everything w/out using primer.
This weekend, I'll be heading over the BE store to see if they can give me any additional tips on applying.
But, I'm beginning to think I'm allergic to this new formula. So sad...
If skin issues improve I'll come back an let everyone know.
What I've Been Waiting For…
I have tried for so long to find the perfect foundation for me….I loved the bare minerals original foundation, but always missed the easiness of applying a "liquid". This is the product I have been dreaming of…one that goes on like a liquid but is NOT a liquid. I had a few reservations but could not believe how smooth it goes on and lightweight it is…doesn't even feel like I'm wearing anything! Love this product…thank you Bare Minerals for bringing this product to the family!
I tried it on at bare essentials in Lakeside Mall in Metairie, LA and I absolutely love it! It is lightweight and looks great on me. Pure Almond <3
I am hooked
I just received the foundation yesterday from QVC. I just couldn't wait till May. So far, I love, love, love this liquid foundation. I love the regular foundation (have used it for 10 years now), but now that I am 40, I was looking for something more and this is it. You don't have to use too much, three drops worked for me. I love the sheerness of it, it goes on smooth and velvety. I am so glad I purchased this product and I am so glad I can stay with BE because this new foundation fit the bill.
Color iss OFF!
I am normally fairly light in matte powder so I ordered Bare Satin in this.. WAY OFF.. I look ghostly white in this. Its way to light. But I will say that I LOVE the coverage.
I have alot of acne scars on my cheeks and this seemed to cover them very well. I will send it back to qvc and exchange for a darker color.
My skin is in fabulous condition, thanks to a Bare Minerals regimine, however, I still have some past issues that need to be covered. What is amazing about this product is that, with just a minimal amount of product, (I prefer as little as possible for a natural look), I get a perfect, flawless look without looking made up. I have the appearance of beautiful skin! The only issue I have is with the container, it is a very hard squeeze, the drop does not flow as easily as I would like but, it does keep it controlled so, I guess I'm good with that.
Best Liquid Foundation I have ever tried!
I'm a Fab Ambassador and was excited to finally get this in the mail. I use my moisturizer like I normally do. First day I tried it without primetime primer. Second day I used the Primer. Either way was great but it seemed to be easier applied with the primer. I use 2 drops for each side of my face. The brush is fantastic and makes it very easy to apply the makeup. I thought the brush would get "messy" with liquid foundation but it doesn't! All the make up goes on your face and the brush is virtually clean after applying. It evens out my skin tone and my face looks great. Wears nicely too. I also still use mineral veil. I really love this product!
This is gooooooood!!!
I have been a BareMinerals Original user for over 10 years, so I was a little bit freaked out by a liquid. But this is from BareMinerals, so I was willing to try it! I'm glad I did!
On Coverage: As will all things BareMinerals, a little goes a long way! It takes a few tries to figure out what works best for yourself. I ended up using 2 drops for my whole face, as it's more than enough. It's very easy to apply... just buff it on!
On Wear-ability: This stays on ALL DAY! Even at the end of the day, my skin still looks flawless. This is truly amazing. I have fairly 'normal' skin, but my nose and chin do tend to get shiny over the course of the day. If I am going out for the evening, I might touch up my nose. But for kids' baseball games, or just general activities, a touch with a blotter paper or a quick swipe with a bit of Veil, and it's just fine! (When wearing Original I would have to touch up, regardless.)
About the Brush: Knowing how gross a latex sponge gets when used with traditional liquid, I was really worried about this brush. There's no cover on it, and I had visions of foundation smudged all over my makeup drawer and on my other brushes. But, I have been using it for a week now, and it's not goopy, not icky, not sticky... nothing but complete softness! I'm amazed.
Overall: Not sure I'm completely giving up my Original... at least not yet. But this is a winner for sure!! Especially for days when I want a more natural look (which is most of them)!
Do not hesitate to try it!!
This is not your typical liquid foundation
Love this product, shake the bottle really good, put one drop in the center of the brush and just buff onto half of your face, its that simple. The foundation is so light it glides on, feels like a powder and the more you buff the more of a glow you get. The foundation does not wear off like other liquid foundations, makes my skin feel silky and smooth. I will have to say this is my new favorite foundation. Make sure to find the right shade or you might be lighter or darker than your used to.
Such a great new choice for Bare Minerals to offer
Bareskin is a great alternative for those die-hard liquid foundation users. It is so easy to apply (get the brush, it is beyond worth it), quick to set, and stays in place all day. It wears beautifully over moisturizer and is topped of perfectly with mineral veil. It also blended flawlessly with A Stroke of Light. For my first liquid foundation since 1999, I would give it two thumbs up!
