bareMinerals bareSkin Serum Foundation SPF 20 w/ Brush
I liked the coverage but wrong color compared to color pics.sending back for new color. Can't wait to get new color and try it. don't recommend for gift unless you know ladies correct color.
Had high hopes but failed
So disapointed in thhe bare skin foundation. I've used the powder for years and am switching back. I should have gone with the negative reviews and not bothered with the bare skin foundation. Every negative review is so correct. I tried applying with the brush, a sponge, my fingertips and a flat foundation brush. None of them helped. The makeup shows up every single small line, crease, etc. I started with 2 drops then another drop and another drop and it still didn't cover properly. Sorry I wasted my time and money.
I love it but......
I do love the brush and the foundation color, it's a perfect match, it blends wonderfully. Only a small (3-4 drops) amount is needed for full coverage. I love the finished look it provides, very natural yet any inperfections are covered well. That said, I have noticed that as the day progresses, the foundation seems to vanish. I first noticed it when I had a cold and I blew my nose alot. It has completely come off and that has never happened with foundation I'd ever used before; but I found that in other places it seemed to just wear off. I started to touch up during the day but I wish I didn't need to. I also don't really like the scent of this foundation, wish that they'd change it abit to make it more pleasant. It has a 'chemical' scent.
This product is amazing with great coverage, It's a fav!
Not for everyone
I bought this and I love the product and the brush more . Wow what an incredible product but after a full day at my desk the coverage is gone like I have no foundation on . Not good for me and why I wear foundation, to cover my sun spots.
I'm so glad I didn't listen to the negative reviews! I love this makeup. I think the trick is to start out with a small amount. I used 2 drops on each side of the face and 2 drops on the forehead. The brush feels like silk on my skin. I've been using traditional bare minerals for about 12 yrs and felt like I needed a change. I'm 41 yrs young and after using bareskin my skin looks awesome!
Color is hard to match
You would need to colors to blend & match your color. Concept is nice- just slightly off and too expensive to buy both.
I really wanted to like it
to start from the beginning.. the brush is terrible and I applied it using a synthetic kabuki brush from sigma... after application it looked wonderful... until about 8 hours later when I started looking greasy.. then the next day I would get little white heads because this just soaked right into my skin.. I didn't wan to believe it but I went back to my regular foundation for a week until my skin cleared up then tried it again.. and 24 hours later again. little breakouts. sorry to say but this was a waste of money.
Worst Product by Bare Minerals
I am a fan of Bare Minerals and have purchased many of their products, so I jumped at the chance to have another foundation choice. I am so disappointed in this product. I am lucky to not have many wrinkles, but this foundation emphasizes the few that I have. It settles into each line despite blending and actually makes me look much older. I even tried using a sponge and my fingers. Nothing works. I have a pasty looking complexion after I apply this product. I will never purchase it again.
Product Good; Brush is Problem
I did not like this foundation at first. I tried it for months with the brush that's included, every which way, and I hated it. Kept it because of the return hassle. This was 4 months ago. But then yesterday I tried it with an angled foundation brush (tarte) and it totally changes the application. It transformed this makeup from thick, pasty, pore exposing syrup into a much lighter, luminous liquid that made my skin glow all day - and did come off until I washed it off. Now, I love this foundation: It's exactly what I need for my 48 yr old skin. Dewey, but not greasy. Full coverage, but not stage makeup. It's perfect now! I just think they need to rethink the brush; the cavern for the liquid causes too much to be applied at once, causing it to look like makeup and not beautiful skin. Try it with a different foundation brush; you might like it better!
this is great stuff!
I looked at this for a few months before purchasing because after using the mineral powder in Golden Fair for years, I needed more moisture, but, I wasn't sure which shade. I ordered
Bare Ivory and it is Perfect.
I am 56 years old and I have been using BM for 17 yrs - I just needed to adjust to how little product was necessary.
I love love love this make up. It gives a flawless, natural, air brush finish with great coverage. And good for your skin. It makes my face look amazing! I'm truly in love with it! So lightweight but yet great coverage at the same time. You must try this, it's not like other liquid make ups.
