bareMinerals bareSkin Serum Foundation SPF 20 w/ Brush
I've used bare minerals since it first hit the market. nothing works as well or covers as long as the powder foundation. Bought this stuff and have tried it for three weeks. shaken well and used w the brush as per directions it is AWFUL. goes on flawlessly and you look perfect, but it never actually dries not even with the powder mineral veil that came with it. i can put a tissue to my face two hours and not even wipe, just press and it comes off orange. smears all over my cell phone screen. w/in three hours, it's separated on my face and streaked into the creases or splotchy on the smooth parts. how did they ever turn this awful product out for sale? so disappointed. i might buy it for someone i wanted to get revenge on because they'll go out thinking they're looking hot and discover later...NOT.
haven't had a foundation that got all over my hands and clothes like this stuff since the seventies. one star is too generous.

I recently bought this product at our Ulta store. Then I ordered it through QVC as the make up and brush were $17.00 cheaper. I am really happy with this and prefer it over the powder type.. The color ordered was perfect, the one from Ulta was too light even though the sales person matched it to my skin. Needless to say I did return the one to Ulta . I most likely will continue to use this product.
Love the ease of use!
I have usedd the powder form of the foundation for years and loved it but am now IN LOVE with the new liquid! It's glides on with the special brush, no powder flying around and followed with the Mineral Veil, it gives a wonderful finish to it. I am leaning more towards the products like the eye shadows and blushes which are not in the loose form. I hav COPD and the powder tends to go floating in the air as I use it when loose. This in a WINNER!!

YUCK, hate this. Returned. Very oily, greasy feeling. Do not recommend.
I overall liked this product. I liked the consistency and the ability to layer the product for different coverage levels. It is very hard to get a good color for my skin. Based on products I have used before in Bare Minerals this product was darker than I wanted. The color charts were not that much of a help. I will have to return this for a different color.
Fair to Good
Just got my BM Foundation. I like it but I also like a lot of others. It's fine & I will use it but other brands are just as good in my opinion. I'm sure it's different on each person. You have to decide. I know this review is not exactly helpful but it's the way I feel. I do love the brush.
Best foundation. Gives a fabulous glow and covers imperfections better than anything! I can't live without.
An Excellent Product
The first foundation I ever used was Bare Minerals Foundation and that was about 14 years ago. I've tried liquid after having makeovers at counters but have always thrown that product away because it feels horrible and have gone back to powder, either BareMinerals or Laura Gellar...love them both. Watching Leslie put this on the models made me want to try it because the coverage looked good and my face is looking dry during the day. Ladies, this product is amazing. You use half a pea size drop for 1/3 of your face and the coverage is amazing. It feels like silk and looks gorgeous. I'm kind of in love with it :-). The hardest part was choosing the color....took me a while to decide. I use Light in BE foundation and tried Bare Beige 08 in the Serum. Perfection.
Since this has an spf, it goes on a lighter shade and appears ashy on darker skin. Once I got the right shade, I fell in love with this foundation. It lasts all day and the best part for me is that it is a great undereye concealer. I try many products but always come back to Bare Minerals.
Leslie You've Done It Again!
I have been wearing bareMinerals for 10 years & I love this just as much as the powder! I was amazed at how it felt like I had nothing on my face! I use two drops on each half of my face for a natural/barely there look. Ive had dry skin since I've had my daughter and sometimes felt that the powder would dry me out a bit during the cold months...the liquid is perfect for my dry skin! I feel beautiful in it! Over all the years I've never had a bad reaction to this makeup! I love it!!
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.
