Rated 1 out of 5 by Swells Bad coverage
I bought this as usually I'm very happy with BareMinerals products. However, this is not quality foundation. You can see lines from the bristles on the brush. It doesn't seem to matter how well you try to blend it. I even applied the serum with a makeup sponge, still not happy with the coverage.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Elizabeth1126 Great Foundation
I just received my bareminerals bareskin serum foundation and I'm very pleased with my purchase. I contemplated on which color to choose bare natural or bare beige. I have medium skin tone with yellow undertones. I decided to purchase the bare natural. The color matched my medium skin tone. The foundation serum is lightweight with a natural feel and I like that it has SPF 20. I also like that it came with the foundation application brush. You can apply as little or as much foundation coverage. It has a smooth & silky feel. I would definitely recommend this amazing foundation.
Rated 5 out of 5 by TheTruth My number one item!!
This was a game changer for me because I have ONLY been wearing powder foundation for over 17 years! I saw it on QVC on TV and thought 'ok I'm going to try this out!' And I'm so happy I did because it's NOTHING like regular foundation but works so well! See, I hate the heaviness of regular foundation and that's why I've never worn it. But with this stuff it's like you're not wearing anything at all and it makes your skin look FLAWLESS! It's definitely a must buy!!
Rated 1 out of 5 by ABron Hard to get out of bottle!
My biggest problem with this foundation is getting it out of the bottle. The bottle is hard plastic, so you can't squeeze it out onto the brush or your fingers/hand. You really have to try to shake it downward until some drops come out and they may make it on the brush or they may scatter around your bathroom. I will not be getting this again.
Rated 5 out of 5 by SweetPea4 Gave It Another Try
When I first tried the bareSkin Serum Foundation, I was not happy. It made my skin look really dry and it highlighted all of my flaws. I took some time to research the application process because I thought that it would work but that I was missing something in the application process. I learned 1) I was not wearing the correct shade, 2) I cannot wear it at the same time that I am wearing any oil based product and 3) My skin was changing ie becoming more dry so I had to adjust my skin care routine. One problem with choosing the correct shade is that Bare Buff is not included in the shade finder chart that is provided on both the bareMinerals and QVC websites. I went into the store to test the shades after having ordering the wrong shade and that is the one that works best. With those changes, this foundation makes my skin look as good as I thought that it would. I now love this foundation.
Rated 1 out of 5 by StellaE Smells terrible, feels greasy
I normally love bareMinerals products, but this foundation was a huge dud. I have mostly dry, sensitive skin, and I had hopes that this would be a nice, light foundation choice with skincare benefits. Let me first say that I did sample it (a nice generous shake bottle sample from another retailer) before buying. At that time, I thought that it didn't go on quite as well as I wanted it to, but I chalked that up to having applied with my fingers instead of a proper brush. So I invested in the brush/foundation combo. Here's the deal: though the brush helps the serum go on a bit more evenly, I have never felt like I got the proportions right... Even when I use just a couple drops (hardly enough for any kind of coverage) it sits on top of my skin and feels greasy. It transfers horribly to clothing, my hands (if I touch my face), my glasses, my phone, etc. it also smells awful... Like motor oil or mineral oil.and my skin feels like it is suffocating when it's on... Can't wait to scrub it off!
I tossed the foundation and kept the brush to use with Complexion Rescue instead (which I like much better). Sadly I don't care too much for the brush for that foundation, but I feel bad about what I spent on it.
Rated 1 out of 5 by cloud123 "Unbareable"
As a longtime Bare Minerals fan and evangelist I expected to love another product. Instead I discovered there is no Santa Claus. This is probably the worst cosmetic product I've ever tried. It's back to the tried and true for me. What a disappointment. I can't even imagine giving this to someone. It's straight to the trash bin. Tried to edit review to indicate it's not a perfect gift for anyone. Couldn't edit option.
Rated 4 out of 5 by JennOliveros Great Purchase
A little goes a long way, and that I love. Great coverage and easy to apply. First time I applied,I did not like the way it smells to much, but it seems that after you either get used to it or it's not as strong. Overall great foundation.
Rated 5 out of 5 by MizizJan My Daughter Loves It!
I originally purchased this product for me but, the color made me look jaundiced. My oldest daughter's skin tone is different than mine & it was her perfect match. She got a surprise gift & it saved me the time, energy & trouble of returning it. QVC is awesome but, I would rather gift the item than return it because the customer service they provide is fantastic! Thanks QVC!
Rated 4 out of 5 by blualt Good but not great.
This foundation is good but not great. I will use it, it gives decent coverage, I just don't think it's great. It's a little runny so it's important to apply it with the brush and the coverage is decent. In comparing it to some other brands of serum foundation I've tried I would say it's somewhat better, and cheaper. But I prefer the Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue Tinted Cream over this foundation.
Rated 1 out of 5 by been sick was sent half a bottle--used before
I was sent a half empty bottle and when I opened the bottle it just kept on pouring out. It had been sitting in the sun. I suppose so this had happened to someone else as well. This stuff is going back and in a hurry!

Love it. Let my sister in law give it a try and she loved it. But if you have always used powders, as I have, it will take some time to get used to. It takes very little.
