bareMinerals bareSkin Serum Foundation SPF 20 w/ Brush
My New Foundation!
I've used bare minerals loose foundation-too messy, The foundation compact-too chalky and IT CC cream-too sticky. I use this bare serum foundation on top of IT Bye Bye Redness primer and it looks great! The result is dewy and coverage good. With a bit of mineral veil to finish, it is the perfect natural look. Does not completely cover sun spots but hey I don't want anything too heavy on my face anyway!
yes & no
I like the coverage, however, when I put it on the brush, it smelled. Also, its very hard to squeeze it out of the tube.
I honestly don't write many reviews, but I had to for this product. I got it as part of a complete kit for a todays special value & I have to say I really love it. Bare minerals for me never gave me enough coverage. I would use a liquid or BB cream & then add mineral veil on top. This is so great, gives flawless coverage without feeling heavy. I use 2 drops (make sure to shake well) & then 1 more drop for the areas that need a little more coverage~ great stuff!
Love it! Perfect coverage with this unique brush
I purchased Bareskin Serum first in a Bare Minerals store at the mall and for some odd reason they didn't offer a deal that included the brush??? Would have had to purchase separately at full price for both. So I skipped the brush. I liked it but soon realized the brush might be what was missing. I went onto QVC because they offered a much better price for the brush and foundation combo. I think this brush is the KEY! I now LOVE it! The coverage is flawless when applied with this unique brush. Very lightweight but build-able coverage. Application is quick and easy...buffs on quickly. My skin is sensitive to breakouts and I have had no issues. If your skeptical I say if you have access to a mall that has a Bare Minerals store, go into a store to get your perfect color match and to try it out .....but definitely purchase it from QVC.

This matches me perfectly(bare beige). It last all day and the brush makes application easy.
Really tried to make this work
I'm writing this review after 4 months of use. I just do not like the finish of this foundation. I don't think I have a problem with pores, but boy does this stuff make you look like you do. I have dry skin, and I have to really moisturize before using this to get any kind of consistent coverage. I use Bare Mineral's primer underneath this, but it doesn't really help. For the price point, there's far better options there. As other reviewers have noted, you really have to have perfect skin for this to look good. Otherwise, it just accentuates your flaws. So disappointed--the original powder mineral foundation is a million times better than this.
I've been a makeup junkie since I was 16......never have I used a more perfect makeup....stays on & looks as natural as when you put it on.....hope they make it for a long time.....would suggest everyone who likes to look natural with a flawless finish buy this one..Its a keeper.
I am African American and I normally wear the bare minerals powder with much success. This product is yellow and doesn't cover well. It also looks chalky and cracks with very little effort. The other thing I don't like is that people seem to comment on my "makeup" when I wear it. When I wear the bare minerals original powder, people comment on how nice my skin looks. I prefer a natural look and something that offers coverage of blemishes. This is a miss not a hit.

This was my very first QVC purchase ever and I couldn't be happier. The second time I used this product one of my co-workers complimented me on how nice and "creamy" my face looked.
THIS IS A GREAT FOUNDATION, BUT THE PROBLEM IS WITH THE BOTTLE. AFTER SITTING A WHILE, EVEN WHEN SHAKING THE BOTTLE AS SUGGESTED, THE PRODUCT GETS STUCK IN THE TIP OF THE DISPENSER OF THE BOTTLE & IS ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE TO GET OUT. NEED TO CHANGE HOW THIS PRODUCT IS DISPENSED. OTHERWISE….LOVE THE FOUNDATION….VERY NATURAL!
When I started wearing makeup, I wore all the wrong things- color, formula, undertone, etc. then I finally tried bare minerals original foundation- AMEN, it was a life saver for my combination/oily skin.
After watching the debut I thought "Hm, maybe."
When I saw it was going to be in a TSV I knew I couldn't pass it up. I'm lucky to have a bare minerals counter at a local department store and got color matched to be ready.
When I got it, I couldn't believe how amazing it was on my skin- I couldn't even feel it. And the mineral veil is a must have for setting it. And that's saying something. Not sure about the smell some reviewers are referring to as I haven't personally detected any wonky smell.
I've found (for me personally) the best application is with a beauty blender type sponge I got from another makeup store. Flawless!! I'll switch off between this and my original mineral foundation depending on my mood!
Love it for home!
I travel so I don't plan on using this on the road. But, when I'm home, this has become my natural go to. The combination of this and the veil compact that came withe TSV is the perfect marriage to create perfect skin. I wear Medium Beige in Bare Minerals and have a neutral undertone. I ordered the Bare Natural and it was perfect. I tend to go with 4-6 drops, 2 drops at a time. I can't get 2 drops to do well on my entire face but this will still last a REALLY long time because you're literally using 2-6 drops at a time. I normally do my make up once a day. I got this from the TSV.
