bareMinerals bareSkin Serum Foundation Auto-Delivery
I love this product & have entered this review 4 times & it keeps removing my remarks. This site is annoying!
Great foundation terrible packaging
Love the coverage and feel of this foundation but it is very hard to get the product to deposit on the brush. You need to put this on a flexible plastic bottle you can squeeze or pump so you can get the drop out.
Wanted to Love this foundation !
Just not for me, glad worked for others but tried to different shades not either worked great. Foundations is messy and does not absorb well on my normal to dry skin.
Shake it up! Shake it up!
I have been wearing Bare Minerals forever. Absolutely love the original foundation. When this liquid version came out, I was a bit skeptical that this was going to be like all the liquid foundations that I gave up in the past. However, after reading about the rave reviews and the benefits, I just had to give a try! I was so excited to get the delivery. It was on an evening that I had a special occasion and wasn't sure if I wanted to wear it without knowing how it was going to look or hold up for the night, but thought what the heck! I remember watching the demo about this product and how important it is to shake it a few times before use. I grabbed my brush that was included and put a few drops on it and it went on so smoothly. The coverage was great and covered my freckles. I did not have to touch it up at all. I received compliments all night long on how young I still looked. Thank you bareMInerals for such an AWESOME product!!! Glad I chose the auto-delivery!
I loved this!
I can't believe the coverage just two small drops can give. Coverage is even and goes on so easily with this brush. My only complaint has nothing to do with the coverage or brush, but with the packaging. Shaking is all that is needed prior to letting the needed drops to drop into the center of the brush, however, when you shake and take the top off the outside of the dispenser is very messy with product.
Save your money...
Someone thinks that because you apply it with a brush it's different than the liquid foundation we used to use 50 years ago that was applied with a sponge. It's not! It goes on uneven as you try to get at the liquid in the bottom of the brush. No matter how lightly you work it, you still have to get to the bottom of the brush, and that's when it gets uneven. And the more you try to even it out, the more you look like a painted pony. I repeat...save your money!
close to perfect!!
I can't use the BE powder make up. It sinks into even the finest, tiniest lines I didn't even know I had & gets worse as the day goes on. BUT, the color & coverage is great & it works wonders on my 23yr old daughters sensitive,, problematic skin. I wished I could find a foundation like that for me. SO, when they came out with this liquid, I couldn't wait to try it. For the last 3 yrs I've had problems finding any foundation, powder or liquid, that would look nice, have good coverage, not be to moisturizing to break me out, yet not drying & sink into pores & fine lines, be long wearing, buildable without looking like a mask and feel comfortable on my skin. This does all that for me! I am 52 but don't have very dry skin like most woman my age so any foundation I found for aging skin was always much to heavy & broke me out. Yet any other foundations were to dry, or just did not sit right with my skin. I finally found a happy medium of all these in this foundation! The brush is simple to use, just use circular motions, and I NEVER need 5-6 drops for full coverage, maybe 3. It lasts just about all day without being itchy or ending up feeling slippery, oily, heavy or shiney. Its the closest to the perfect foundation I've found for my aging skin so far. I'm still looking for perfection, but I honestly don't think that exists for me & this foundation is what I will continue wearing probably forever, so please don't stop making it! Its close enough to perfect for me! I wouldn't recommend as a gift only because foundation is tricky to match color etc. As far as performance, yes I'd highly recommend.
Love the product. Goes on great last all day. I think the shade is off could of been darker.i don't think qvc carries my shade
This product spoiled quickly. Was not exposed to extreme heat. I used the product properly. It's way too time consuming to prepare. Bottle too hard to easily squeeze out product. I have no issues with ability to use my hands in this way. The coverage is odd. Streaky and mask like. So disappointed. Way overpriced.
Here is what I have discovered, first the brush is a disaster to clean, I did have a BareMinerals employee at a boutique show me a trick and it has become much easier, but still pretty time consuming. Second, works best when paired with PrimeTime primer, really makes the difference in staying power and appearance on the skin. Third, if you are finding that the makeup is sticking to dry patches or appears to separate on your face throughout the day try adding a scrub into your morning routine, adding that step did wonders for me. It takes some time to get used to in terms of application as you need to find the right amount of drops for your desired coverage, but overall this product has been my introduction to BE and I have already started switiching some of my other products to BE. For me and my overly sensitive skin this has been a miracle
overall: good coverage, light weight, buildable and blendable, and lasts all day.
The Only Liquid Foundation I've Every Liked
I don't seem to have any problems with the application of this foundation. Just two drops - really - only two does the trick. I use moisturizer and a primer and it still glides on without any trouble. I was complimented about my face every time I have worn this foundation. I do agree the color can be less than quickly matched. However, I have found that I like it just a wee bit lighter and gives a flawless look. I didn't wear makeup for years because of liquid foundation. Then, I discovered the original Bare Minerals. I was/am an addict of it. This, their serum version, has made me a convert as well. It is the only liquid foundation I have every wanted to use.
Love it! BUT....
I love this foundation! It gives great coverage, and lasts all day. I really wish QVC would carry my shade though. I am in 01 Porcelain, at least in the winter. The brush takes a little getting used to. I would say if you're having trouble getting a good blended out application, try a different brush or a beauty blender type sponge. I was surprised to see so many negative reviews as I really like this foundation. It's light weight, and it doesn't breakout my super sensitive skin. I definitely think it's worth a try.
