bareSkin Pure Brightening Serum Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 20 - null
Not what I expected...Stick to the Original!
I have been using Original Bare Minerals for over 3 years. It has been my go to ever since. It helped clear my skin, is effortless to put on, and has great all day wear. I was soo excited to hear about bareSkin and unfortunately after trying it for a couple of days am disappointed.
It feels as if it never fully sets. It just stays there. In the morning it looked OK, but throughout my day at work when I went to the restroom I couldn't help but cringe!! It just looked off and settled in all the wrong places. I tried with primer, without primer, set it with mineral veil, no concealer, yes concealer....all ways to try to make it work but it was a total miss!!
Will be returning it :(
If the powder works for you stick with that!
I never write reviews, but this foundation was just too good not to write about. I have very dry skin, especially around my nose area, and most other foundations I've tried have accentuated the dry patches on my face. Not only does this have amazing coverage, with one drop literally covering the entire half of my face, but it's very hydrating and doesn't look cakey. It's also the first foundation i can use a brush to apply; for all other foundations I must use a wet sponge (I recommend the Real Techniques sponge, it's just as good as the beauty blender) or else my skin looks too dry.
The only issue is that the lightest shade is almost, incrementally, too dark for me. I have several friends who are definitely paler than I am, so that's unfortunate.
But overall, one of the best out of the dozens of foundations I have ever tried.
Interesting application, Flawless finish
If I had to judge this foundation based on application, I wouldn't give it a fabulous review. It isn't until the very end of applying (drop by drop) that you finally feel like it's working and it's covering. That's frustrating, but the end result is beautiful! I get compliments from friends when I wear it, saying that my skin is luminous and dewy. (As a reference, I'm a diehard Original wearer.) Overall, I'd give it a 4/5. Great product, but the application process isn't so simple.
Acts more like a BB cream than a foundation
Let me start by saying that I loved BareMinerals. I have been using the original and ready foundation for the past six years. I was excited at the prospect of a liquid foundation that could feel creamy, light, and offer full coverage. While this foundation does feel light on my skin, it feels more like a BB cream than a foundation. It does not provide good coverage and I have had to pile in more than 5 drops per application. It does not settle well in lines or in areas around my nose. It was also a challenge to find a match with my skin. If you currently use any of the other mineral foundations and they work for you, there is nothing you are missing from this new serum foundation. Stick to the product that is working for you.
What a great product!
I usually use the original mineral foundation and was curious about the liquid... I am SO glad I purchased this! It's lays on my skin so nicely. It's light, breathable, and comfortable. Looks so much better than the original foundation- please try it!
As a girl with very pale skin that's pretty red around my nose, mouth, and chin, it is very very difficult to find a foundation that not only matches my skin tone, but is able to cover my redness without looking overdone. THIS FOUNDATION IS EVERYTHING I HAVE BEEN LOOKING FOR. The lightest shade is an absolute perfect match to my skin (I don't even need to blend it onto my neck!) and it covers my redness perfectly - it's just enough, not too much and not too little. The brush makes controlling the amount of foundation so easy. I just start with one drop and add as needed. The finish is so wonderful, it's not super dewy (great since I have oily skin) and it's not dull matte - it just looks like skin! I hope this is never discontinued or else I'll be at a loss for foundation again!
Do not hesitate to buy!!!!
I am simply in love with this new serum foundation. Of all the years that I have been putting make-up I have never been satisfied until now. Wonderful coverage and simultaneously non-sticky, you don't feel like you have make-up on, it last the whole day; as if you would have put it on recently. On top of that I have been applying the foundation for about a week and so, and I can see the difference in my skin tone as well, I had horrible dark spots and now most of them are gone or have improved. Please I ask the company do not stop selling this product, is a miracle worker.... THANK YOU!!!!
10 Year BM original foundation user goes liquid
I never thought I would use liquid foundation again in my life. I switched to BM when I was 18 after being continuously let down by everything else I tried. The purchase was on a total whim. I went to my local ULTA to get my usual, but was coaxed into trying this liquid miracle....and now I am in love! Bare Minerals is the only makeup brand that could do this. I expected the masky-ness, caking, or lack of adequate coverage that I used to run into with liquids, but no, it literally is like nothing I have tried. I feel the same way about it that I did when I discovered BM for the first time, So excited to find something that worked for ME. It looks super natural, smoothing, adjustable coverage, and takes me less time applying than the original mineral makeup. I don't write reviews ever, but I just had to share on this one. Original mineral foundation girls, don't be scared, give it a try, you wont regret it!
YAY! So happy about this foundation.
I've worn bareMinerals for years from their original formula foundation all the way through to their pressed foundation and now the Serum.
If the dry formulas have a flaw is in way they wear through out the day - especially when paired with liquid or cream products like concealer and blush. At the end of the day, what started out as a perfect face becomes a face with fading makeup - if you know what I mean.
But this Serum - there are barely words for it. It's so easy to use, it looks fabulous on and at the end of the day, It still looks like the best version of my skin. You can't ask for more than that!
Best foundation ever
I've been using Bare Escentuals for over 10 years and love the products. Switched to Origins about a year ago (daughter-in-law's suggestion) and went back to BE after 3months of breakouts. I've been using the Ready Foundation and wanted to try the new liquid one. Could never use liquid - would just slide off during the day. I strongly recommend you go into the store for a personal match. My face was cleansed and all the products I use were applied so I could see what it would be like at home. They had 2 recommendations. One I needed more exfoliating and to switch to a tinted veil. Been using it for almost a week and see improvement in my skin everyday and love all the compliments. My daughter-in-law asked if I was wearing makeup. I'm 68yrs old and my skin looks great.
