Rated 5 out of 5 by kimba2 Summer go-to
I love this foundation in the summer months. It allows for great coverage control which I especially appreciate this time of year when I often just need sheer coverage with a polished look. When I want a little more coverage to last all day it takes the heat beautifully, maintaining a natural finish.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Probably never changing my foundation again!
I was so interested in makeup from a very young age, but my dad was very reluctant to let me use any... until I was about 15 and my older cousin suggested I start off using this foundation. She assured me it had a very natural look, feel, and ingredients. I have used it off and on for about five years now.
There was a period where I would use drugstore brand foundations (because I was cheap) but I found that 1) I could never match my color perfectly and 2) my skin would break out terribly. So about four months ago I switched back over to bare minerals original foundation and I don't plan on changing anytime soon! I use foundation about 5 days a week and I still have a good amount left!
The powder is so light feeling and natural looking! I was always skeptical about loose powder makeup because I always feel like it won't stay or something, I don't know why. But this stuff definitely stays on. Especially when paired with the foundation primer! And on top of being so natural feeling and looking, the color (medium beige) is so true to my skin. It doesn't have the pinky and orange tones that I always find in liquid foundation. This stuff is amazing! 11/10 would recommend.

Love how it looks so natural on my face. Being 53 - I want to look as if I don't have make-up on. thank you for a great product.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer my favorite!
I wear this in combination with the bareskin concealer over my lupus scars..blends seamlessly and evens my skin tone..finally a foundation I'm happy with.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Surprisingly Effective Product
I am almost 20, with acne and a face that is pinker than the rest of my body. I'm constantly trying different medications and remedies and I thought this would be nice to try because it wouldn't make me break out more. Surprise! I got a yellow-toned foundation and it easily covers even the most pigmented acne and looks so natural, even my critical, perceptive mom's been complimenting me on my clear skin. It just looks better if you take a nap in it or wear it the whole day, and my acne has actually improved since I started using this product. I've only had it a month, but I don't think I'll go a day without it again. Plus I haven't even made a dent in the amount of product! This is a wonder/miracle foundation for me, and I'm shocked I didn't hear about it until now and there isn't more stuff like this on the market.

Ladies, listen up. I am 68 years old and when I go out wearing my Original Foundation, men are still checking me out. And I don't mean the ones my age. I mean men much younger than me. Which is why I am, and will always be, a life-long fan of the Original Foundation (plus, I can mix two shades to get a perfect match).

My sister suggested this makeup a long time ago, I was afraid of change. I was so use to wearing thick full coverage foundation that made it obvious that I was wearing makeup. I was afraid to touch my face, and I was also nervous to hug people for fear of getting makeup on their clothes. I love this makeup, the coverage, and I am not afraid to touch my own face anymore. It takes much less time to put this makeup on than any other foundations I have ever used. One other thing I love, I have light skin with freckles, and this foundation matched my skin very well.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Samm Feels like I'm not wearing makeup
This goes on so smooth and feels like I'm not wearing anything. It makes my skin look flawless but still very natural, no overly madeup.
Rated 5 out of 5 by HotPinkMomma Weightless Foundation
I love this foundation. It gives great coverage and finishes without feeling heavy or flaky. I look and feel natural after using this. I like to wear makeup, but what I love about this most is that it looks like I wear very little makeup. It does weigh me down or melt away in the heat like other foundations.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer The best I've found
This is the best foudation for my type of skin. I tried the liquid ones but always come back to the original foudation. I love the light feeling that I get when I wear it.
Rated 3 out of 5 by HeatherJo Please Add More Colors!!!
I absolutely love the formula of this foundation but PLEASE come out with more colors!! I usually wear Fairly Light (which is too light for me). I have a neutral undertone and have tried the Medium Beige color but it is way too dark for me! I wish that there was a color for light to medium skin tones with a neutral undertone.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Reanne This is better than the best!
I started using Bare Minerals years ago and I love the new color Golden Tan. I was using Medium Tan and Tan depending on the time of year - because neither fit me year round. That being said, when I walked into the store and was color matched with Golden Tan, I was more than thrilled! Thanks for such a great product!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Love love love
This product... My gosh. You need this in your life. I absolutely hate liquid foundations, all of them seem to make my face super oily and patchy, even though my skin is not oily at all. They also feel so heavy on your face and I hate that cakey look. I was going and spending 45 plus dollars trying to find a good foundation that didn't look super cakey but still had enough coverage and someone recommended this to me. I never even thought of buying this foundation because it was powder but I thought why not and gave it a try. This stuff is my favorite seriously! It makes my skin look so beautiful and natural and covers up what it needs to cover. It doesn't look cakey. It looks like my skin but better which I love!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Pheanyx Been using this product for years
I've used the Original foundation in the lightest shade they make for well over 10 years for my very fair skin. It's the only foundation I'll even use anymore. I can't stand the cakey feeling of liquid and cream foundations that are never fair enough for my skin any way. Especially when my skin is extra sensitive, like when I've over exfoliated or I'm breaking out, this foundation has always been very gentle. I think it has great coverage for the cost.
Rated 5 out of 5 by wittycat12 I love this product
I have loved bare minerals powder foundation for years. I hesitated to try it until a dermatologist recommended it. It's been over 9 years and I won't use anything else. My skin looks great, I get complimented often, and my break outs are rare. I appreciate that it looks natural on my skin and I can vary how much coverage I think I need. I also love that the days of a makeup line along my chin line are long gone.
I also use all of the foundation and makeup products on my 11-year-old daughter when she performs on stage. Her skin looks perfect and never causes any sensitivity issues, which we both appreciate!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Gr8gal Really great foundation!!
I am back to using Baremineralss after 10+ year hiatus. I am in my mid-40s & while I have combination skin. This covers very well, is creamy & does not age me at all. Love it! If I am experiencing a some troublesome oily spots, I put a little matte version on top of this. Happy with this product.
Rated 5 out of 5 by littlemari24 Amazing Foundation
well what can i say i have been using bare minerals since 2008 and let me say this is the Best foundation for you skin. I have tried other products and notice my skin would breakout. when i would use bar minerals i've never had a breakout or skin problems, so when they say its good for your skin and dermatologist recommend it i see why. I will never use no other foundation unless its bare minerals. This foundation gives great, Natural coverage makes your skin look luminous and healthy, no one will ever know you have it on, And a little goes a long way. So if your looking for something that will give you that natural and wont make you breakout then this is the foundation for you.
Rated 5 out of 5 by scrow The BEST Foundation I have ever used!
I am in love with this foundation, and have been for the past few years. It makes my skin look amazing. It evens all my tones out and brightens my face! Never have had a problem with making my face look too oily or dry.. I Highly recommend this foundation.
Rated 5 out of 5 by JodyLuvsBareMinerals AMAZING FOUNDATION!!!
I am a huge fan of Complexion Rescue but wanted something I could add to it on days I wanted a little more coverage. I don't know why I waited so long to try the Original Foundation but now that I finally did, I cannot believe how fantastic my skin looks!!! I am blown away by the coverage and the glow my skin has and all the while it looks so natural! I am 62 with a few fine lines but not many thanks to years of sunscreen. Neither of these makeup's settle into the fine lines I do have. I was a Clinique fan for years and then tried some of the other department store and drugstore brands as well. I wanted to go with a healthier brand without chemicals and additives like BareMinerals. I am so glad I did and have never looked back. I can't say enough about their new skin care line and their make up. I can't wait to see what new products they come up with in the future! I am one happy customer:)
Rated 5 out of 5 by bcushenb Best Cosmetics Purchase Ever
After trial and error with various foundations (from various companies), I have found this one from Bare Minerals to be the best. At first I was worried that I'd have to buy a container every month. After using it, I realized that I didn't use so much of it. Just a little. The results were incredible. I have rosacea and small zits around my cheeks, that were instantly covered up. Just a little of this foundation and my skin looked naturally beautiful. It didn't even look like I was wearing makeup.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Can't go wrong with the Original
I am a BareMinerals junkie. But I have to say the Original foundation is a staple in my makeup bag. It's perfect for all skin types and weather. I can wear it in the winter and I can wear it on a hot summer Arizona day.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer covers literally anything.
I have pretty bad post acne hyperpigmentation. There are lots of small red marks some darker than others that literally not even 4 layers of kat von d tattoo foundation could cover. Plus that just made me look cakey and by the end of the day my makeup was flaking off my cheeks and it was just gross.
I bought this on a whim because Bare Minerals has been awesome in the past, tried it with the buffing brush, and it covered my marks in 2 layers. It looks so natural and you can't even tell I'm wearing makeup. It cut down my time getting ready in the morning by at least a half hour. (Using a foundation brush is tedious)
If you're on the fence about buying this, get it.
It's worth every single penny and has made me so much more confident in my skin!!!

It's so easy to put on, it is flawless. You cannot tell you are wearing makeup. Use your concealer with a dab to the center eye corner to make your face brighter before brushing on your foundation.
The foundation is long-lasting. No creasing or splotching. It feels light on my skin.
It's a lovely color seems to match my color face like it was made for me.
I'm brunette and tan skin so I got the tan color foundation. You don't look tanned just clean looking.
My advice is wash your applicators with some shampoo occasionally.
Oh, and it doesn't dry out my skin.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Best Foundation I've Used
Wow, my skin has large pores and my complexion is splotchy. This foundation is a miracle. I literally take the Kabuki brush and watch all my imperfections disappear. Before I found Bare Minerals, I could never find a foundation that was a match. Fairly Light is perfect. It gives me a natural look while providing full coverage. All my flaws just vanish.
Rated 5 out of 5 by kns7 First and Only Foundation
When I first started to wear makeup my mom got me this foundation. She wanted to make sure that i got a foundation that not only looked like my skin but would be good for my skin. From then on this has been the only foundation that I buy. I have tried other foundations but they typically end up covering my freckles, looking cake-y, and cause me to break out. I have never had bad breakouts or reactions to this product. When i do get a few zits (thanks hormones) I can apply this foundation over it to easily cover them. In the winter time I have dryer skin and in the summer I have somewhat oily skin and this foundation works for me year round. I see a lot of girls my age switching foundations constantly and I'm glad i have a foundation that I can always count on. bareMinerals has a lifetime buyer in me!
Rated 4 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Perfect colour match
I have medium - dark skin tone, also on the normal - dry side, find it very difficult to get a color match even in brands like MAC that have a huge shade range. Golden tan is a really good match for my skin tone. Gives me that radiant look that I love. Except that sometimes it accentuates the dry patches under my eye, otherwise I love it! Lasts a really long time for me since I don't use make up on a daily basis.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Texanbrunette lets skin breathe
light was a perfect match also bought #7 in the liquid and the cream skin plus mineral viel and warmth plus warmth radiance. Love the eye concealor too tried during a makeover in the tube. looks better than the pot cream I have been using too. loved the eye color and palette plus lip pencil and eyebrow loose color. I can not wait to get the products. Love the one day a year for !5% personal day and I have just joined fab program and I am suppose to get 10% off soon.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer 10 years and counting
I've been using this product for over 10 years and will never wear another foundation (I'm now 29). This product covers great but isn't heavy. I had issues with breakouts before, but this product is actually good for your skin instead of the regular foundations you find in other stores. I feel like this product actually lets my skin breathe and do its thing, instead of weighing it down with harmful/random chemicals. I use this over the complexion rescue tinted moisturizer now, but have also had great success with a small amount of BB face primer under it. Plus, SPF to reduce wrinkles later in life (for all you girls in your late teens and 20s... Start now with SPF, you will be glad you did when you hit your thirties, your skin will thank you).
Rated 5 out of 5 by HelenT Love it
I have been using this for over a year. I have rosacea and was using Merle Norman. My face continually broke out and burned. Since this, my brake outs are rare depending on what is gong on in life, but the make up does not burn it, or make it worst. The coverage is very good and my face is never oily any more.

I have been using. Bare Minerals for many years. Love it! It is great for my skin and looks good, too.
