bareMinerals bareSkin Serum Foundation Auto-Delivery
I have used bare minerals for years so i tried this new product, hate it it shows every line every wrinkle i have very dry skin i think if you have oily skin it might work for you but a waist of money for me cant use it at all feels like a mask on my face!
There is a learning curve
It's taken me a few tries, but I like this foundation. 1. Primer is very helpful. I use the bare minerals clear primer. 2. Shake Shake Shake. 3. 2-3 drops for left side of face , 2-3 drops for right side. 4. Buff buff buff. Finish with mineral veil.
Far less messy than the BM powder. Gives a nice bright finish. Still on my face when I wash at night so it does last. I also think it's probably important to get a good color match. I went to a BM store and had them match me. I was considerably darker than I would have guessed.
Bad coverage, doesn't last
Used a week and sent back. Does not cover, does not last, spotty coverage at best.
Ok, but not worth the hype
My skin issues are (just to get an idea if this applies to you): sensitive, combo skin, freckles, medium toned, in between neutral and yellow undertones, and starting to mild rosacea. Best thing about this product is the color selection. I finally feel I have the right color for me. It is sheer to medium, buildable, but not full coverage. I loathe the brush. I can't get the well clean even though I soaked the brush overnight. I find that I get better application by using a flat top brush. Work in sections because the product dries quickly. The product feels strange, but not in a good or bad way-just different. Lasting power is pretty good except for the tip of my nose.
A little disappointed
I found a little goes a long way. It actaully accentuated my flaws instead of hiding them.
It goes into every pore and is very noticable. Also it magnifies any peach fuzz hair you may have on your face. I bought the powder instead and am very happy with that. I love the brush and use it with other cosmetics
Very Nice Foundation
I like the product very much. It covers all my flaws and leaves a dewy and brightening look to my face. Plus, it's SPF 20. My only complaint is the delivery. I either get too much in my brush or nothing at all. Wish bareMinerals could come up with a new bottle that allows the product to flow consistently into the brush. I would have given it a higher rating but the bottle needs to be improved.
I have used and loved BM for many years but was getting tired of the BM regular powder foundation when they came out with this product. I loved it from the second I put it on. I am not a makeup expert, but this foundation is so easy to use, the coverage is great, looks so natural yet covers all my "flaws" and feels so much more hydrating than the powder. The first day i wore it my boss remarked that i look very well rested! I have been using it for about 4 months and I highly recommend it, especially to the 50+ ladies such as myself!
I tried this--- didn't like it all. Sorry it is going back.
With this foundation a little goes a long way. I can obtain flawless coverage with 4-6 drops and I have found that applying 1-2 drops at a time is the best method. I think the people who dislike this foundation are applying it like traditional foundation and if I did it that way I would dislike it also. It is not messy when you do 1-2 drops at a time! If you apply more than 6 drops you will look like a disco ball.
I have worn Bare Minerals powder foundation for many years, which I love. I decided to try the new liquid, but I've been very disappointed. After I apply this, it begins to flake off. Wasted over $40.
Works great for me
I've had this for a little while now and I'm finally ready to write a review. This is a good foundation for me. I wasn't sure at first because it is different from other foundations. There's a little learning curve because it does require blending and experimenting to get the level of coverage you need. Three to four drops is best for me. I have the bare linen and it's a good color match for my skin. A light pat of finishing powder sets it fine for me. I've tried the Bare Minerals powder foundation and never felt the color was good-seemed to make me look yellowish; this is a better match for me. I gave four stars because it is a bit pricey. To me this foundation has no scent at all unlike some of the other reviews. Definitely worth a try.
Won't go a day without this
Love that this has SPF built into it and also it's a perfect perfect match for my skin tone. The application brush goes on so nicely and it makes the foundation spread so beautifully.
