Simply The Best!
This foundation is simply the very best and easiest to use. Has the staying power you need with build-able coverage and healthy for any skin type with plenty of colors for a natursl match. My face was awful before I started using Bare Minerals and now I always get complements. I love this product and hope they never stop making it because it's still the Best!
my only foundation
I love BareMinerals.......
my only wish....
that you would offer smaller trial sizes.
I wear medium & LOVE IT...but would like to try a lighter shade too, for my eye area perhaps. I use Tan in the summer & LOVE.
Wouldn't it be fun to be able to try and mix a few shades....
PLEASE.......I know I can't be the only person wanting this.......
Best foundation I've used.
The original bareMinerals foundation had me from the first time I tried it. I have been using bareMinerals for over ten years and love, love, love every product I have tried but the foundation really gives me the confidence to step outside with out worrying about anything. Sunscreen and excellent coverage that looks like I am not wearing makeup.
Great as a primer to regular foundation
Did not provide enough coverage for me, hence the 4 stars. However, it works great as a primer underneath my airbrush foundation. I've been using Dior airbrush for years but recently it started to cake on me. I purchased Bare Minerals and put it on after my serum and moisturizer, then sprayed my Dior foundation. My skin was incredibly smooth and plump and dewy looking afterwards with excellent even coverage.
I love this stuff and had to come back in to order tan color this summer since I've gotten darker to keep from looking like what my husband says "A ghost that's haunting him" :l The tan looked too dark but turned out fabulous! This product does not cake or appear as if I have on make up! I am a naturalist and wear very little make up but need to conceal flaws. FINALLY a beauty product I can wear on top of my dermatologists recommended derma blend...and make me look natural!
More coverage needed for me!
It is supposed to be used as a replacement of foundation but if you want good coverage you need to use a lot of product.
Unless I am feeling very comfortable with my skin during the day, I put it over a small bit of my foundation and then I love it!
Not Like It Used To Be
Like some other reviews I've read here, I must agree with those who say the formula has changed. Ever since Leslie Blodgett left the helm of BE the quality of this once "Be All to End All" Foundation has plummeted. Both my mom and I have used this foundation for a very long time; it used to feel so silky and lightweight that it never felt like we were wearing makeup. I'd receive compliments on my skin and would "talk this stuff up" to my friends. We both agree that these days the foundation feels gritty, dry, sandy. The coverage isn't as good as it used to be and by the end of the day most of it has disappeared. The same is true of the line's Mineral Veil product. It too feels just as gritty, sandy and dry as the foundation. In the "old days" I would have given this product a 10 if that were an option. Now, at best, it's an average, so-so foundation; not one I'd recommend any longer.
Not For Me
It look's good on, but after a few days my face was red and it had looked like i had a sun burn on my face, also sounds funny but even after the makeup was off, in the mirror my face had a white look to it, like white powder was on my face, i found out it was the spf 15 which gives you that protection but stays on the face, and it did even after the face was washed. So it's going back for sure.
This is my favorite foundation. Easy to apply and so natural looking.
I used a liquid makeup before, it clogged my pores. Then Dr. told me use Bare Minerals, have not had clogged pores like that since. Also less oiliness. I will continue to use it.
