bareMinerals bareSkin Serum Foundation SPF 20 w/ Brush
I love this foundation, makes my skin look almost flawless, like this even better than the original bareminerals foundation I give it 5 stars
A FOUNDATION ANSWER - LOVE IT !
I have been useing B.M. mineral make up for years and love it;but the dusty mess that accumilated on my make-up table was always a problem and I have alllergies too so didnt help that side effect either . I have tried the new SKIN SERUM and love it . Did away with powdery mess. I've learnd to let your moisterizer settle in and dry before applying the foundation or it will roll. Tried 2 shades ; in summer can use the bare shell and bare satin ; i have mixed them also at times. I use 3 or 4 drops ;the only thing I find a little negative is the hardness of the bottle to squeeze out the drops; with stifness in my 77 yr old fingers . Maybe a push top dispenser would be better; or a softer bottle ;don't want to leave some in the bottle due to not being able to squeeze it all out. It covers very nicely and is so quick and easy;does not settle in the fine lines .. I still use a little mineral veil on occaision. My daughter noticed how nice my skin and make-up looked. This will be on my make-up table now ;will order more in the future. I change shades from summer to winter . Try it, getting used to it is very easy.
Found a keeper
I finally found the perfect makeup. Makes my skin come alive. There are not enough words to describe how lovely it makes your skin look and feel. Thank you bare minerals !
This foundation is truly the best I have ever tried. At 61, life shows it's stresses from years past so we need coverage without heaviness that does not set into life's wrinklesThis product meets our needs resulting in a soft natural appearance. The fair shade is perfectly for my fair skin evening out the tone. Truly worth the try!
This is the first liquid foundation I ever found that is GREAT, works well, and protects my very fair (redhead) skin. Love this! I thought I only would use the powder/mineral/loose foundation. However, I happily use either. Love this product! Lisa, thank you for your sacrifice, commitment to quality, and service to us all!!! bareMinerals skin and cosmetic products FOREVER!!!
Great Luminous Coverage
A tiny amount gives wonderful coverage. The brush makes flawless application so easy. I love this foundation and will be buying it again!
Was disappointed in this foundation, it provided me with no coverage and I had to keep trying to layer it to get the coverage I wanted and it never happened. I felt the brush was too small also.
Sorry to say I won't be buying this product again.
Not a Fan
First, the main reason I don't like this product is that it smells. I'm wearing the makeup on my face, so I smell it constantly. I'm not sure how to describe it, but I find it very distracting and unpleasant. Secondly, it makes my face feel greasy...I don't have exceptionally oily skin but I feel very oily with this product on. I don't really feel that it covers all that extraordinarily well either. I have used several bareMinerals products in the past and liked them...not impressed with this one....at all.
I love Bare Minerals and I wasn't sure about liquid foundation. Try to experiment before going out. The hardest part is matching your color. But it's so worth it.
Stays on, not greasy....

Great liquid, might still prefer powder
I have used BE powder foundation for over 5 years now. I have enjoyed not feeling it on my face. Since I received this foundation a few months ago, I have only been able to wear it twice. The coverage is EXCELLENT and it is really easy to apply; but I feel like I am wearing foundation so it isn't so good for me. I am hoping this fall/winter with cooler weather that maybe I won't mind the heavier feeling on my face cause the coverage is wonderful.
I have been using bareMinerals/bareEscentuals since QVC first started carrying the products, so that is many years. The is the first time I have been unhappy. After all the fan-fare, this liquid serum foundation was a big disappointment. First, the color: I ordered Bare Satin (cool medium), but It has an ORANGE undertone. Very noticeable and certainly not a cool undertone. Secondly, it is very thin and watery – even after many shakes of the bottle. As soon as the bottle is inverted, it starts dribbling out. Settles into and accentuates even the finest lines on face. It seems to have no moisturizing properties. Maybe I expected too much, but it had to go back.
Good and bad
I love how it goes on but have had issues with it stopping up.
