Q & A

bareSkin Pure Brightening Serum Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 20 - null is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 721.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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 from 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.

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 from 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 from 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. Pros: -smooth -great coverage -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) Cons: -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 from 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 from 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 from 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 from 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 from 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 from 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 from 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 from 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 from 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 from 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 from 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 from 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 from 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 from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would give this a million stars! I have loved bare minerals for years, (love make up in general) many of my staples are BM. When the original mineral foundation came out - I was in love. I have acne prone skin and could never use liquid foundations without horrible breakouts and when I started using the mineral foundation, the break-outs stopped and my skin looked beautiful. Unfortunately in my early to mid 30's it didn't work for me anymore personally - it setttled in fine lines and make my dry skin drier (despite several different adjustments I made to try and make it work. The ready didn't work either as far as dryness was concerned. I searched for a new foundation for a long time - I would say I purchased over 50 products trying to find something. I found a few things that were OK but this foundation is a miracle. I don't see how something so thin can provide such full and beautiful coverage (of course it can be sheer if that is what you prefer) but about six drops gives me full, beautiful coverage without being cakey or looking like I have make-up on. I wore fairly light, and the bare linen is a perfect match. Plus no break-outs, which is unheard of for me with a liquid foundation, but I figured that it wouldn't, being that it was made by bare minerals. Every woman deserves to look and feel beautiful and I thank you for this wonderful foundation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Feel Naked in Your Own Skin, But with Coverage I love BE's newest innovation! The product feels very light, but yet I get my full coverage that I always like. I only have to use 4 drops for my whole face and it takes me two min to put on. They have lots of shades to choose from so there is a shade for everyone :) I do have to touch up towards the end of the day because my skin gets oily, BUT I work 12-hour shifts. My oily spots still look okay at the 8-9 hour mark :) If it helps any of you since I have medium skintone I use Bare Beige/08. Great Job BareMinerals for another award winning breakthrough!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost Perfect I love the idea of this product: a foundation that goes on like a liquid, but still gets applied with a brush and dries to a soft powder feel. The coverage is great and the brush really does help provide for smooth application. My only issue was that I still felt like I was "painting" my face. You could see the lines of the foundation as you were first putting it on - even when following the directions of only 1 to 2 drops on the applicator brush - and they only went away after I put a "top coat" of original foundation on top of it. Maybe it's the person applying the make up, but for me it was just easier to skip this step. I truly love the idea, so maybe it is just me on this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from this is better than any foundation i have used I love this foundation; it glides on my skin and feels so lightweight. I don't normally wear foundation - it felt like i was wearing nothing at all. my skin was glowing and radiant

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The perfect liquid foundation I have been wearing it daily for a couple of weeks now and I'm loving it. I don't want to be flowery in this review, but really, I find this stuff to be just what my skin needs. I received this as part of the FAB Ambassador program and when they first announced it, I was a little hesitant. BE has always been true to their mineral powder foundation. How could they change it up and make it work!? And how would people respond...myself included?! I'm a loyal Bare customer, especially to the original foundation (i've been wearing it for 6+ years!) and was nervous to try this new product. Here's what I've found: I love that the coverage is very build-able. I like a medium coverage and I've found that 2 or 3 drops usually does the trick. I really like the way the brush too. It buffs the foundation on perfectly. The foundation doesn't sink deep into the brush fibers, which is good so product doesn't go wasted. And it gives a beautiful, smooth application. The packaging is nice and I've found that it's easy to get the right amount of drops I want each time. I have a lot of redness in my skin and this foundation really evens out my skin tone. It lasts all day long, especially if you remember to use your mineral veil! The big thing: my skin has been really acne prone this past year or so. After a few weeks of using this product, my acne is clearing up. I don't know what's in it, but for the first time in a long time, my skin is looking great without makeup on. My skin seems to be more hydrated, firmer, smoother, more even, and brighter! I've gotten more compliments on my skin lately than I had in a very long time!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I guess when I said I'd never go back I meant it! I was so honored to be chosen as a FAB Ambassador and equally excited to try this product early. Thank you, Bare Minerals for allowing me to be part of this program! From the time I was a young girl I have always LOVED experimenting with new makeup. Unfortunately, after trying the Pure Brightening Serum Foundation a few times, I have determined I am and always will be a BareMinerals powder foundation girl. Below are a few pros and cons: Pros: I love the application brush --- it allows you to apply the foundation very easily. The foundation goes on light and airy and has a weightless feeling. Cons: I was hoping it would help with my dry skin, but it made it appear more dry and scaly. I hope BareMinerals continues to provide innovative products. Thank you for giving us an opportunity to participate in the reveal and the build up to the product release. I hope you include me in future product trials.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Said I would never go back to liquid foundation... The day I was introduced to Bare Minerals over 8 years ago, I swore that I would never ever go back to liquid foundation. Why on earth would I ever put that goopy mess back on my face after experiencing the smooth silkiness that is Bare Minerals? Then I was invited to be a FAB Ambassador and try the new BareSkin Serum Foundation. Since I've been experiencing some dryness and debating adding a BB cream to my regimen, I decided to bite the bullet and take a leap of faith. I should have know that the team at BE would not disappoint! 2-3 drops of this silky formula gives me the medium coverage that I love without feeling heavy or oily. I do find that I have to use primer, as it settles into my fine lines a little more than the powder formula does, but as I have worn the serum formula for a week now and seen the difference in the texture of my skin due to the serum, I don't mind the extra step. I live in Florida, and this liquid holds up to humidity and heat beautifully. I don't do touch-ups during the day and have found this to wear every bit as well on my combination skin as the powder formula does. I am sold on liquid foundation...but only if it's BE! :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Light application, doesn't feel heavy.......... Love the consistency and feel of this product, easy to blend in too. It lasts for about 5-6 hrs and haven't figured out what to use for touch ups yet as the veil tends to make me look washed out. Would like to get the correct color for my skin tone also. The bottle does tend to be difficult to squeeze but other than that, love the product and how it feels on my skin :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Delighted I tried Bare Minerals for the first time, when this product was aired on QVC special offer. I was informed (by the grape vine) Bare Minerals didn't cater to African American skin types too often. Yet, to my surprise, I was please with the Walnut shade. I gave it 4 stars, cause I use more than the 2 squirts on each side. I use more like 2 layers, I'll purchase Espresso and decide which is better. The jury is still out, after that day darker shades were removed.

I love that it feels like I am not wearing anything but provides great coverage! The coverage lasts all day and I don't have to do a thing to it. Great product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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 from 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 5 out of 5 by from 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 from 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 from 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 from 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 from 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 from 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 from 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 from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would give this a million stars! I have loved bare minerals for years, (love make up in general) many of my staples are BM. When the original mineral foundation came out - I was in love. I have acne prone skin and could never use liquid foundations without horrible breakouts and when I started using the mineral foundation, the break-outs stopped and my skin looked beautiful. Unfortunately in my early to mid 30's it didn't work for me anymore personally - it setttled in fine lines and make my dry skin drier (despite several different adjustments I made to try and make it work. The ready didn't work either as far as dryness was concerned. I searched for a new foundation for a long time - I would say I purchased over 50 products trying to find something. I found a few things that were OK but this foundation is a miracle. I don't see how something so thin can provide such full and beautiful coverage (of course it can be sheer if that is what you prefer) but about six drops gives me full, beautiful coverage without being cakey or looking like I have make-up on. I wore fairly light, and the bare linen is a perfect match. Plus no break-outs, which is unheard of for me with a liquid foundation, but I figured that it wouldn't, being that it was made by bare minerals. Every woman deserves to look and feel beautiful and I thank you for this wonderful foundation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Feel Naked in Your Own Skin, But with Coverage I love BE's newest innovation! The product feels very light, but yet I get my full coverage that I always like. I only have to use 4 drops for my whole face and it takes me two min to put on. They have lots of shades to choose from so there is a shade for everyone :) I do have to touch up towards the end of the day because my skin gets oily, BUT I work 12-hour shifts. My oily spots still look okay at the 8-9 hour mark :) If it helps any of you since I have medium skintone I use Bare Beige/08. Great Job BareMinerals for another award winning breakthrough!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost Perfect I love the idea of this product: a foundation that goes on like a liquid, but still gets applied with a brush and dries to a soft powder feel. The coverage is great and the brush really does help provide for smooth application. My only issue was that I still felt like I was "painting" my face. You could see the lines of the foundation as you were first putting it on - even when following the directions of only 1 to 2 drops on the applicator brush - and they only went away after I put a "top coat" of original foundation on top of it. Maybe it's the person applying the make up, but for me it was just easier to skip this step. I truly love the idea, so maybe it is just me on this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The perfect liquid foundation I have been wearing it daily for a couple of weeks now and I'm loving it. I don't want to be flowery in this review, but really, I find this stuff to be just what my skin needs. I received this as part of the FAB Ambassador program and when they first announced it, I was a little hesitant. BE has always been true to their mineral powder foundation. How could they change it up and make it work!? And how would people respond...myself included?! I'm a loyal Bare customer, especially to the original foundation (i've been wearing it for 6+ years!) and was nervous to try this new product. Here's what I've found: I love that the coverage is very build-able. I like a medium coverage and I've found that 2 or 3 drops usually does the trick. I really like the way the brush too. It buffs the foundation on perfectly. The foundation doesn't sink deep into the brush fibers, which is good so product doesn't go wasted. And it gives a beautiful, smooth application. The packaging is nice and I've found that it's easy to get the right amount of drops I want each time. I have a lot of redness in my skin and this foundation really evens out my skin tone. It lasts all day long, especially if you remember to use your mineral veil! The big thing: my skin has been really acne prone this past year or so. After a few weeks of using this product, my acne is clearing up. I don't know what's in it, but for the first time in a long time, my skin is looking great without makeup on. My skin seems to be more hydrated, firmer, smoother, more even, and brighter! I've gotten more compliments on my skin lately than I had in a very long time!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I guess when I said I'd never go back I meant it! I was so honored to be chosen as a FAB Ambassador and equally excited to try this product early. Thank you, Bare Minerals for allowing me to be part of this program! From the time I was a young girl I have always LOVED experimenting with new makeup. Unfortunately, after trying the Pure Brightening Serum Foundation a few times, I have determined I am and always will be a BareMinerals powder foundation girl. Below are a few pros and cons: Pros: I love the application brush --- it allows you to apply the foundation very easily. The foundation goes on light and airy and has a weightless feeling. Cons: I was hoping it would help with my dry skin, but it made it appear more dry and scaly. I hope BareMinerals continues to provide innovative products. Thank you for giving us an opportunity to participate in the reveal and the build up to the product release. I hope you include me in future product trials.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Said I would never go back to liquid foundation... The day I was introduced to Bare Minerals over 8 years ago, I swore that I would never ever go back to liquid foundation. Why on earth would I ever put that goopy mess back on my face after experiencing the smooth silkiness that is Bare Minerals? Then I was invited to be a FAB Ambassador and try the new BareSkin Serum Foundation. Since I've been experiencing some dryness and debating adding a BB cream to my regimen, I decided to bite the bullet and take a leap of faith. I should have know that the team at BE would not disappoint! 2-3 drops of this silky formula gives me the medium coverage that I love without feeling heavy or oily. I do find that I have to use primer, as it settles into my fine lines a little more than the powder formula does, but as I have worn the serum formula for a week now and seen the difference in the texture of my skin due to the serum, I don't mind the extra step. I live in Florida, and this liquid holds up to humidity and heat beautifully. I don't do touch-ups during the day and have found this to wear every bit as well on my combination skin as the powder formula does. I am sold on liquid foundation...but only if it's BE! :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Light application, doesn't feel heavy.......... Love the consistency and feel of this product, easy to blend in too. It lasts for about 5-6 hrs and haven't figured out what to use for touch ups yet as the veil tends to make me look washed out. Would like to get the correct color for my skin tone also. The bottle does tend to be difficult to squeeze but other than that, love the product and how it feels on my skin :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Delighted I tried Bare Minerals for the first time, when this product was aired on QVC special offer. I was informed (by the grape vine) Bare Minerals didn't cater to African American skin types too often. Yet, to my surprise, I was please with the Walnut shade. I gave it 4 stars, cause I use more than the 2 squirts on each side. I use more like 2 layers, I'll purchase Espresso and decide which is better. The jury is still out, after that day darker shades were removed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great new product I have used the new BE Foundation and I love it! It goes on very easy and makes my skin feel very soft. I love that it feels like I am not wearing anything but provides great coverage! The coverage lasts all day and I don't have to do a thing to it. Great product!
