bareMinerals bareSkin Serum Foundation Auto-Delivery
I purchased this and I like it but the bottle still has liquid in it and it won't come out. It is to expensive to throw away! I would not recommend this until something is done about how it is dispensed.
I love this foundation, I went to another store to get samples of a couple different colors before making a purchase, the lady at the store said bare walnut I told her it was gonna be to dark, but i took a sample, also of the bare almond and the color after almond, well I was right walnut was way to dark, Just because I'm african american doesn't mean we all wear the two darkest colors, I fell in love with the almond, it makes my skin look flawless, and doesn't skin into my skin by midday, I was not able to wear any of the foundation powders all the colors were to red on me, but I found my match...not to crazy about the brush...that's why I gave it 4 stars instead of 5.
Not a fan of the liquid serum
I tried it and it doesn't seem to blend well. I was very excited to get it because I am a huge fan of the powder. I am not a fan of the Serum Foundation.
WASTE OF MONEY
THIS PRODUCT LEAVES MY FACE MUDDY-LOOKING. IT IS VERY HARD TO BLEND. I AM VERY DISAPPOINTED. I AM GOING BACK TO MY OLD BAREMINERAL POWDER.
Ordered Twice, Gave Up
I ordered too different times, choosing colors that I thought would be a good match. However, both had too much yellow, and did not offer the proper coverage. They also faded quickly and the texture of the foundation was very thin. Waste of money.
Does not work as described in promo
I have been a bareMinerals gal for over a decade. With my aging skin and rosacea, I thought that switching back to a liquid foundation might appear more youthful, so I purchased a bareSkin kit with the foundation, a tinted powder and the Perfecting Powder. Boy, was I mistaken! First of all, 2 drops on the brush covers only 1/2 my face, so now I am using 5 to 6 drops for coverage. Secondly, I shake the bottle, then have to squeeze the rigid bottle to get the 2 drops to fall onto the brush with arthritic hands. Thirdly, the product does not blend well. It sits on my skin or sinks into my pores. Coverage of blemish is barely existent. Doesn't work well with moisturizer, so I switched to PrimeTime thinking that might keep the product out of my pours. Nope, didn't work. The tinted powder, included in the kit, just sits on top of the bareSkin foundation. Then I added the Perfecting Powder which doesn't add the finishing coverage that Mineral Veil adds. I end up with too much gunk on my face, just sitting there looking back at me in the mirror. Not good! So I am switching back to my bareMinerals foundation. Amazing to me that some reviewers gave this a 5 star. Just shows how different our skin types can be.
Need to re-think the container
Love the coverage and color, BUT the bottle is terrible. Shake, Shake Shake and shake some more and maybe, just maybe you will have the make-up drop on the brush.
Takes some trial and error
The first time I bought this, I wasn't sure what shade to get. I use medium for the powder foundation, so I bought a shade that I thought was close. It was awful, and looked orange on me. I sent it back. I then tried a light shade, but thought it looked too light. I finally went to a local Bare Escentuals store and got color-matched, so now I have the right shade for me. I have acne scarred skin and dark spots, and this provides good coverage and concealing. I only give it 4 stars for two reasons: the difficulty in getting the right shade and also that the brush does not come with a plastic tube to protect it.
I made the switch to bareMinerals several years ago, but could never really find a shade that truly matched my skin tone- until now! I absolutely love the weightlessness of this foundation. It makes the skin look flawless; like I'm wearing nothing. I purchased it from the store but didn't buy the brush- BIG MISTAKE! I had to go back and buy the brush, overpaying. I wish I had seen it on QVC before buying it seperately because I would have purchased it here and saved some cash. My replacements will be purchased on QVC.
I've been a Bare Minerals girl for years & this product sounded great. I've been using it for months now trying to like it. I've tried brushing on the foundation, using the side of the brush for blending (as another reviewer suggested) & applying with my fingers. It's difficult to blend in without lines, often pills while smoothing it over my skin & settles into my pores (ugh!). So I added primer to my routine -- still settles into pores & wrinkles. Even with the primer the foundation disappears well before the end of the day. The only pro for this product is that BE offers so many color choices. So I've switched to another product & will use BE powder for the warm months. This one is definitely a miss!
Not for me
I didn't like the coverage, I use moisturizer before applying makeup in the morning and this liquid foundation just smears on and doesn't blend well with moisturizer. If I used it without moisturizer it was ok, but still smeared and had to really work at feathering to blend it in. Not a good value for me. I'll stick with the original bare minerals powders. If it isn't broke, don't fix it.
This is the best foundation and delivery system I've ever tried. It makes small discolorations on my face disappear! The color (bare linen) is perfect for my fair skin and doesn't look orangey like so many foundations do to me. It is a perfect neutral shade and I have tried and failed many times with different brands and shades. I use 4 drops of foundation and that is perfect for my entire face and it does not look like makeup, only looks like I have a nice complexion. I was skeptical about the brush delivery system but it works wonderfully. It blends well, no lines of demarcation at all. It is just a nice makeup/brush. I will definitely reorder.
