bareMinerals bareSkin Serum Foundation SPF 20 w/ Brush
Needs some improvements
The smell is hard to describe, and it's hard to overcome. This is good for someone who wants light coverage and the brush makes it fun to apply. Not meant for a full-coverage girl.
Love The Coverage
I love this product; I am a woman of color and it took me mixing two shades to get the right color; I was going to return it because the color that was picked for was too golden or orange; then I thought let me mix two colors together and it was perfect; I use to wear a concealer but you don't need one with this; 2 drops cover me well 1 of each color; I let my sister try mine also and she loves it also; we use to wear Mac; if you have lines that show up on your face you have put too much on;go to YouTube and watch demo of how to apply
love the new bare skin makeup, but they need to redesign the bottle it comes in, when you shake it up a lot of the makeup is in the lid, so it is pretty messy when you open it up, has a lot of the make up in the lid and also on the tip of the bottle when you open it up. lot of waste. but other than that. love the makeup.
Good coverage, but dries out by the end of day. It looks like cracked cement on my forehead.
What's that smell?
The overwhelming impression I get from this foundation is the rancid smell and the oily texture even after vigorous shaking. Perhaps I received a bottle that came from a bad batch, as BareMinerals is usually top of the line in quality. It does eliminate the redness in my skin easily but I can't get past the smell and consistency. Sadly.
Okay, this was my first venture into Bare Minerals. I am so glad I tried it, as it is wonderful, Great coverage without heavy and filmy feeling on the skin. Love it!
This foundation goes on easily and quickly. Looks natural. Color is perfect. Doesn't feel heavy but covers very completely. The brush is wonderful and makes it easy to apply.
I was very excited to order this product but the foundation smelled like old lipstick! I couldn't stand it. On the plus side QVC's excellent service keeps me as a customer. They credited me for the product without question. But I still wonder why it smelled so bad.
Good Foundation; Poor Dispenser
bareMinerals powder-style foundation looks awful on me, showing every pore, so I was glad when the company introduced a liquid formula. I like it a lot. I have good skin, so I don't need a lot of coverage. This gives me what I need. I like that it has SPF 20, too. And I like the brush. But dispensing the foundation onto the brush a drop at a time through the opening in the bottle doesn't work well at all. It's hard to control the amount that comes out, so sometimes I get too much. Sometimes it's hard to dispense at all. And if you give the bottle a tap to make the foundation come out, watch out! It may wind up all over your bathroom! bareMinerals, please consider putting a pump on this bottle that will dispense the foundation a drop at a time. Then you'll really have a great product.
Not good for people of a darker color complexion..
This item is for light medium to very fair skin it is too light for olive or a darker skin complexion.....
Hated it at first... NOW I LOVE IT!!!!
When I first got this foundation it was in a TSV kit with eyeshadow (the eyeshadow color in this kit is PHENOMENAL) blush, powder, lip gloss... I think that's it. And obviously the foundation and the stippling brush. The first couple of days I wore it I didn't like the texture, I didn't like the way it set on my face, I just HATED IT. So I put it aside and was disappointed but thought, oh well. I like the other stuff in this kit.
So yesterday I thought, maybe I should try it with my tarte foundation brush, it can't hurt, right? So I put 5 drops on the back of my hand, put those drops accordingly onto my face, and used my tarte foundation brush to smooth it on everywhere... EUREKA! My skin looked AMAZING!!! There is something about the provided stippling brush that doesn't cover well, but with my tarte foundation (kobuki) brush this foundation WENT ON LIKE A DREAM! If you are having this problem, try using a new brush. I am so excited to wear this foundation now, it's my absolute favorite!!!
Hope this helps those who are frustrated with the results using the provided brush.
LOVE BARE MINERALS
I have used Bare Minerals off and on for several years and always seem to go back to it. I have tried cheaper and more expensive and they always seem to make my face break out. I am 54 yrs young and should not be having acne breakouts. I am so glad that Bare Minerals came out with liquid foundation because my skin is dry. I have only used this for a few weeks but already love it. Good job Bare Minerals!
