bareSkin Pure Brightening Serum Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 20 - null
Trumps ALL other liquid foundations
Ohhhhh Bare Minerals....they've gone and blown us all away again! Finally, a liquid foundation that's up to par with the Bare Minerals philosophy. Makeup that's also skin care.
I used the Original mineral powder for 6 years and swore I would never use anything else. My skin always looked naturally beautiful, glowing, flawless and I loved having sun protection in my foundation. Then, starting last summer, I developed a horrible allergy to titanium dioxide (the stuff that provides sun protection) and could no longer wear my favorite foundation. Or any foundation that had titanium dioxide, for that matter. Or sunscreen..... My cheeks were dry, flaky, red, inflamed, itchy...the list goes on and on. Long story short, I was forced to switch to liquid foundation because the powder just looked horrible on my face. Thankfully, I discovered the root of my allergy and no longer have issues, but the powder still looked too chalky for me to switch back. Yet, I should have known that I would never be fully satisfied with creams and liquids because, let's face it, they're just not good for your skin. They do cover beautifully, and it took me less time to apply than the bareminerals powder did BUT...it's heavy, it breaks up, it looks... "make-upy" compared to how Bare Minerals foundation looks. I actually looked forward to getting home and washing my face at night to rid my complexion of suffocating, oily nastiness.
Then I get an email from Leslie....................and everything changed.
BareSkin is NOT heavy. It does NOT break up. It does NOT look make-upy. That's because it's NOT, really, a liquid foundation. It's a serum. A serum packed with Vitamin C and lilac stem cells which heal and protect from environmental factors. And, of course, it has the trusted SPF 20 protection that aids in preventing premature aging. The coverage is FANTASTIC. Two drops at a time is all you need to build up your coverage. And, really, you don't need very much. I used two drops for each side of my face....and that's IT. Covers great and feels amazing.
Some people are upset with the Bare Minerals team for "betraying" the Original powder formula. My response is "THANK YOU!!!" 100%. I am so, so excited to get to come back to the brand I love.
*In the Original loose powder I was "fairly light." I actually went with the cool-tone shade of Bare Shell in this foundation as I've gotten older and developed more pink undertones. Matches great!
Dream come true.
Words cannot describe the joy I feel over this foundation. BE you have out done yourself this time, I don't know how you can top this. As a Fab memeber I received my foudatino on Monday I nearly knock down the mail man to get it. When I finally put it on my face I was a peace with the world. I felt like a child on Xam morning gettting her toys. I am so in love with this foudation. I have been a BE user for 10 years (started in my 30's # and now with this I need no other foudation. The one sent to me is a perfect perfect match # bare almond# I love applying it. when I put it on it is so light and soft and the 3 drops to each side of my face is just enough to give me full covererage. It feels like I am wearing nothing at all. It last and last beyond 8hours, you really dont' have to touch face up put some mineral veil on and your are good to go. Everybody at work thinks I have just good skin, #if they only new# I think this will not become my 1# foudation behind the loose power. I hope It will be in the beauty renew club so I can always have it. If you do not fall in love wiht this foudation ladies you are not a BE user or believer. Please please try this, it will make you fall in love with make up all over again .
Was totally a skeptic until I tried it
I have used Bare Minerals for almost 10 years now and when they announced Bare Skin, I was a skeptic. I thoughts, "That's not the Bare Minerals I know & love." Low and behold when I received it, I was intrigued. I decided to try it over my BM Moisturizer without any primer. Not only did it give me a beautiful flawless finish, but it lasted all day long in the TX heat. I did use 6 drops (3 per each side of my face) to get the coverage I desired. I'm 39 and it gave me a nice youthful glow. Give it a try! You may just be surprised like I was!
After trying this product as a Fab Ambassador I am amazed! bareSkin feels so light on your skin yet it covers up redness. As a working mom, this takes minutes off my morning routine not to mention many people have said it doesn't look like I have any makeup on! Thanks BE for once again setting the bar with quality products.
i wanted to like this, but...
I have moderate rosacea, suffer from the occasional hormal adult acne break out, and inherited dark under eye circles. I was thrilled to get the invite to review this product and had high hopes. However, i carefully layered on the 6 drops max that was reccomended, never even achieved 'good' coverage of any of my skin issues, & it felt like a film on my skin. By midday, most of it had completely melted off my face, and what was left settled in all my wrinkles and enlarged pores, just like every other liquid foundation i've ever used. i would not recomend this to anyone that had less than flawless, youthful skin.
Fabulous new product!
I am so delighted with bareSkin serum foundation. Like other Bare Minerals foundations, it's easy to control the sheer to heavy look. I prefer sheer, and when wearing bareSkin, I don't look like I'm wearing makeup. I just look like I have beautiful skin. The dryness that I've been fighting all winter is suddenly gone after wearing bareSkin for 6 days. I appreciate that this foundation is completely odorless, and doesn't have parabens. I don't need concealer or primer when wearing bareSkin. The brush is so soft and really does it's job! I've worn the original foundation for 10+ years and now I have 2 favorite products. Thank you, Bare Escentuals!
Goes on smoothly with flawless coverage. Lightweight and feels great on the skin. Hides imperfections and uneven skin tones. I highly recommend this product.
A new foundation to put the others to shame..
As a Fab Ambassador, I received this as a sneak peak perk. It is AMAZING. I'm telling you, you cannot compare it to ANYTHING on the market right now.
The feel is silky smooth. It is NOTHING like a traditional liquid foundation. The brush they've created for it is exceptional, and blends in perfect every time.
This serum doesn't settle in pores or wrinkles, and stays the day regardless of hectic work, evening dancing, and my life on a farm.
You also don't need a primer for it. I just use a pea-sized drop of moisturizer for my dry skin and glide this stuff on. I am a believer for life!
Long live BareSkin!!
BEST liquid foundation EVER!
My foundation arrived yesterday and I applied it this morning. My face looks fantastic. My skin is radiant and has a youthful glow. The redness is gone and the imperfections disappeared. My face feels softer and it doesn't feel like I have anything on at all. I have been a BE user for over 10 years and will continue to be a devout fan! As far as color matching, I did a great job picking mine. I am a medium beige and picked bare linen. It is a perfect match for my skin. Thank you BE!
I am so happy that I decided to preorder the bareSkin Serum via QVC and get my foundation prior to every one else. I wouldn't want to risk not getting this wonderful new product, today. It is Liquid magic for my skin. It feels great, it covers in a variety of ways and it even has SPF protection. Like I said, " Wow.....just Wow!" I put on a little last night just after receiving the product in the mail and was amazed at how light it felt and how perfectly a sheer wash of color covered my skin. This morning I used the foundation and wore it all day to work. It just happened to be the last day of my fortieth year and I was told by numerous people that I don't look my age. I love that bareSkin and bareMinerals helps me to stay looking so pretty and youthful. Having a choice now between powder foundation and liquid foundation with a varying degree of coverage is perfect for me, bareSkin is a great addition to my makeup bag!
Today I tried my new foundation and literally jumped for joy. It has been years since I tried a liquid foundation, and nothing ever looked or felt like this! It felt like nothing, but looked like I was born with clear luminous skin......which I was not, lol! I have large pores that disappeared with this foundation and could fully cover my dark spots on my cheek. I do have some dry skin on my nose and forehead that you could tell was dry, however I havn't done any real exfoliation to those areas, and I normally do. I blame the crazy weather that my region has been experiencing as well as my hormonal cycle. Love, love, love!!!!
I think I'm in LOVE...
As a FAB Ambassador, I was so excited to receive the bareSkin Serum Foundation and the new Perfecting Face Brush at my door today! Just three hours ago and I couldn't wait to try it!! I washed and dried my face, and applied a light moisturizer as I normally do prior to my foundation application. I can only say "THIS IS AMAZING!" Just two drops into the brush (for each side of my face) and I began buffing just as I would with the loose minerals. Immediately, my skintone was beautiful~ no redness, just an even luminous tone with a dewy appearance. At my age, that's no simple feat. I'm kissing the big 5-0 and unfortunately, I don't have the best skin. Redness, dark circles, fine lines/wrinkles, and sun damage to be frank. Not to mention dryness all around my eyes no matter what I use! When I watched the QVC presentation the other night, I thought... "hmmm I'd like to try this, perhaps with aging skin like mine, I might benefit from a brightening serum foundation." I keep looking in the mirror to see if it looks the same as it did a couple of hours ago and it does! I love the loose minerals and the ready foundation, and have come to depend on the ease of use. This is so easy to apply, exactly the same application technique and this brush is fabulous. I'm a believer. By the way, I would say I'm a 'cool' tone, though I use medium and/or medium beige in the loose and the same in the ready. I received the bare natural in the bareSkin and it seems to be perfect. I got so wrapped up in the color selection while watching the QVC presentation, I really had no idea what to order. I was on the fence with the bare satin (cool), or the bare natural (neutral) and I have to say this looks great. It is so lighweight and seamless. If you are on the fence, TRY IT! I think you're going to love it!
Finally The Wait is OVER!
So basically I'm a QVC fanatic (when it comes to Bare Minerals and one other makeup brand, but Bare Minerals is top for me). So it was only a matter of "when is this coming to qvc on advance order" and "how do I sign up for the advance order" for me to get on board. I've been using Bare Minerals for years. I can't even tell you the EXACT time I started using it, but I've been using it at least since before I met my fiance and before we had our daughter so at least 6 years or better. I venture off on a makeup journey and I always come back to Bare Minerals. I have broken out before in the past from other makeup brands and when I start using Bare Minerals, within a week I kid you not, my skin would clear up. It's like finding gold for me. I hope Bare Walnut works for me. I'm Golden Dark in the original foundation, Warm Dark in the READY foundation, I use Deep Bisque for the powder concealer, Deep 2 for the cream concealer and #4 for Stroke of Light. It would be fantastic if the color I chose fits me. If not, I can always return it or exchange it for a different shade once the other shades debut. I love how with Bare Minerals foundation I put it on and since it's powder, I really don't need to "set" it like some may do with BB/CC Creams and liquid foundation. I think it's clever that this is called a Serum Foundation versus liquid because some "liquid" foundations are more wet and the fact that this is called a "serum" advertises skin health AND beauty and not just paint on the face. Can't wait to see how this works for me! Thanks B.E. for B.E.lieving in new editions!!
I can't wait to sell this to my clients!
I manage a very busy salon and we have sold Bare Minerals for years. My clients are diehard powder foundation clients, but I have always wanted to have a product from Bare Minerals I can sell to my liquid clients as well. I am very excited that Bare Minerals has finally launched a liquid line! My representative demoed the product other day, and it is AMAZING! I can not wait for my clients to try it!
Yay!!! It was only a matter of time!
I work with make-up and clients would ask me if Bare Minerals has a liquid foundation and I would always say, "No, but I'm sure they will someday!" ... And here it is!! It's awesome because so many lovelies like to wear just a liquid foundation and then there are those who love the fuller coverage of wearing a liquid foundation and a powder together. Now there is something for everyone! You have the best of both worlds! I know it's going to be a hit and I for one can't wait to try it! I'm so glad there's a liquid that I know will be healthy for my skin! I already love the powder! Once I try it I'm going to write another review, but I think it's going to be a winner! BM has become my favorite make-up!!! :D
