This foundation gives me the most natural, beautiful and flawless cover!
Rated 5 out of 5 by IT-blondie 20 year fan - this product still is the best
I started using Bare Minerals in my mid-twenties, 20 years ago, when it was first aired on QVC with the foundation, warmth, and then the 2 eye shadow colors - bisque and java. I fell in love with it and converted all the ladies in my life also.
A few years ago, being enamored by the "new", I tried the Ready foundation for a couple of years, and then subsequently tried the serum and the Complexion Rescue formulas. I also tried GloMinerals (was dry and made me itchy) because I really wanted to stay with products that are natural and Talc-free.
I'm back and happier than ever using the original foundation!! It doesn't sit in fine lines like the other formulas. And with just a light stroke of primer underneath, it minimizes pores. (use the primer with a brush versus your fingers!) I'm back to have the "dewy skin" look just as Leslie described years ago.
I've read in so many articles that as you age, less is more. Heavier makeup can really age you. I used the Supreme finishing brush to achieve very light coverage and then take the blurring buffer brush for targeted coverage. To finish, I use Mineral Veil in the t-zone area.
I need something for lighter skin, but cooler looks better on me so the Fairly Medium is perfect.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lone Star The original remains the best
No matter what other BE/BM products I try, keep going back to the original. the great product before BE's new parent company started affecting quality. This original formula has made my skin better than before I started using it - 10 yrs ago.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nana52 Wonderful For Oily Skin
I used this for years and for some reason I decided to change to something different. I have extremely oily skin and this is the only makeup that doesn't make me shine like a glow worm. I will never change again. I promise you if you have oily skin this is the makeup for you. I wear it all day and it doesn't make me shiny or my makeup start sliding off my face. Love it very much.
Rated 4 out of 5 by catlover59 Very Nice Indeed!
This is the first time I have tried this foundation. I wasn't sure if medium color would be too dark, but right now it is almost too light. I love how it looks after I have applied the powder. Very silky looking. The reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is that I have to use a lot of product to get coverage.
Rated 5 out of 5 by colleen99 Best foundation ever! Shade recommendation
I am 53 and have been using this foundation for about 12 years. I am fair skinned with freckles and burn easily. I also have a bit of redness on my face. Normally I wear fairly light, but have used medium during the summer in the past. Last week I ordered fairly medium, a shade I had never seen before. It arrived today. As a warning it is not darker than the fairly light. In fact it appears lighter. The fairly light has more of a yellow or slight golden tone. The fairly medium appears to have almost a grey hue. If you have a skin tone similar to mine, light with freckles, medium to dark brown hair with medium shaded brown eyes stick with the fairly light. The fairly medium makes me look a bit washed out. I haven't decided if I am going to keep it and hope my crushed pearl mineral veil balances it out or eat the 6.95 dollar return charge and exchange it for the fairly light shade which I should have stuck with to begin with.
Rated 5 out of 5 by AccessoryGirl Forgot How Good This Is!
For many years I used nothing else but bareMinerals foundation and was extremely happy with it. Then I switched and have been trying everyone else's foundation looking for that no makeup look and feel with a full coverage, clean, healthy look. Last month I came back to bareminerals and I now remember why I used it for 15 years. Now I'm back and completely satisfied. For full coverage use your favorite Bisque as concealer (I use Summer) and use a little more product. Top with your favorite Radiance and veil and you are perfection. BTW, I miss Leslie and hope she is happy and healthy :-))

I have used this foundation for years and still love it. My face feels fresh and clean, with no heavy makeup feel, yet the coverage is great. I really hope they don't decide to make changes or replace the original foundation as they've done recently (since the sale of the company).
