bareMinerals bareSkin Serum Foundation SPF 20 w/ Brush
I'll stick with BareMinerals powder foundation
I found that the foundation smelled strange. I didn't feel that it covered as well as I would like and I became very oily with it.
I'll stick with the BareMinerals powder foundation. It's tried and true for me.
SHOCKED AND NOT IN A GOOD WAY
I was completely disappointed with this product! It was way too yellow for me and I chose the light shade! It was too runny and certainly not up to Bare Minerals' standard! I don't know what happened with this foundation but it clearly seems to have slipped through the cracks. I gave it one star because that is the only way I could write this review…I do not believe that it deserves a star!
I love the coverage of this makeup BUT it smells like a sour dishcloth. My husband said he could smell it too!!!
Wasn't sure at first...
...but, when I experimented and used less product, I liked it much better. I think the instructions are 2-6 drops depending on the amount of coverage you want. I only use one drop and am quite satisfied with the coverage. In my case, less was more! For new users, I would suggest starting with a very small amount and go from there. I was thinking of sending it back until I tried using less. Now I use it every day.
Foundation felt like color added to water. Tried two different colors and the tint had too much yellow. Did not cover well and actually made pores look larger. Very disappointed, as I have other bareMinerals products and they work perfectly.
I enjoy the coverage that this product provides. All in all, I enjoy the product. I don't, however, enjoy the design of the bottle. I feel like every other time I open the bottle after shaking, a volcano erupts onto my bottle and hands. I have wasted more product into paper towels that I have used on my face. It really is unfortunate. I like the product but I will not be buying it again. It's just to frustrating.
You won't regret trying this product!
I purchased this item on QVC because with the makeup and the brush together, it's an outstanding deal, over $10 cheaper than other sources. Not to mention the brush is a must have to use this product. If you buy the bareSkin and do not use the brush, you probably won't love this item nearly as much as I do!
I've tried to apply this makeup while testing colors at standard makeup stores, the product just simply does not spread well without the brush! But I recommend visiting a local makeup store to test the colors on your skin, as this line has a ton of different colors for you to match your skin. But come back to QVC so you can get the deal with the brush!
Absolutely love the texture and smooth appearance my face has after applying the makeup, I look as though I've just had my makeup done by a professional makeup artist and that makes me feel fabulous.
I am a huge bareMinerals fan, love all of their products and find that if you use their product line, all of it just fits together very well. I moisturize, prime, apply bareSkin, bareMinerals powder and finish with Mineral Veil. Stick with their line of products and you can't go wrong. Product is easy to use and goes on nearly flawlessly.
Sooooo disappointed in this foundation. I have been using this foundation long enough to know that it is not for me. It lays in my pores and does not smooth out, as described. I was hoping that this would be "the" liquid foundation that would work. Still looking.
A little goes a long way
Liked this except I chose a color too light for me...a little goes a long way and I use this for special occasions just add a little of my powdered bare minerals to it so that the shade is not as light
Can't get past the smell!
I have used Bare Minerals for years and have also started my two daughters on it from the time they started wearing makeup. I have really loved almost everything I've ever ordered, but can't get past the smell of this liquid makeup. I ordered it in a kit with some other items that I liked, but am returning all of it. The coverage was true to what was shown in the demonstration, but I could smell this funny smell all day long! It was so strong, I felt like if anyone got near me, they could smell it too! I will keep buying Bare Minerals but this liquid is going back.
love this makeup!
I have used the powder foundation for years and love it! I was skeptical about this after some reviews said it didn't hold up in heat and and complaints about the odor. I've worn this all day outside in the Florida heat and humidity with no problems. There is no odor. I love the coverage and the fact it doesnt settle into my fine lines, pores and wrinkles. I purchased it in the same shade as the powder foundation and actually like the shade better in the liquid.
I usually am a fan of the brand!s products and was surprised by how bad this was for me. The color was too yellow and texture was gritty on my skin. I tried it a few times but got the same result and could not wait to wash it off. Unfortunately I waited too long to try and could not return.
