bareMinerals bareSkin Serum Foundation SPF 20 w/ Brush
It's a BB Cream
This should really be advertised as a BB cream rather than a foundation. It applies quickly and easily for those who want light coverage w/SPF. The applicator is a wonderful concept. However, I find it lacking for me as a "foundation" with good, even coverage. Applying more than one, light coat makes it look cakey and streaky on my dry skin. I use this in the summer and my days off with a bit of concealer for a quick fix. It does not cover undereye circles or red spots completely. I like this as a treatment serum for aging, sensitive skin. Remember, not a true foundation unless you're gifted with a good complexion. ID needs to re-name it.
Really wanted to like this
I'm sorry to say this did not work for me. Bare Beige was a perfect match and I liked the buildable coverage however it didn't look good on my skin. I tried it with primer, without, different brushes, fingers.....I really wanted this to work. I have oily skin and this would make my skin look so dry. I find the loose minerals give a better finish than this one and look more natural on my skin.
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.....
