bareMinerals Original SPF 15 Foundation
Perfect For Me!
I absolutely love all bare minerals products. This foundation gives you a natural and polished look. You never break out with this product! It's perfect and doesn't make you look fake like other foundations do! Great foundation!
No longer works on my skin!
I have been using bareMinerals for years. When I first started using it, my skin looked moist, and for the first time in my life I was getting compliments on my complexion. However, within the last 6 months or so, after a few hours I have noticed the foundation settling into the lines (which they say it is not supposed to do), and in some areas even forming flakes (and I have oily skin). It is getting worse, and I am dreading the idea that I am probably going to have to start searching for a new makeup once again. Sad, because I thought that bareMinerals was going to be my final makeup. Years ago I would have given it a 5-star rating, but now can only give a 1-star.
The Best Product Ever!
I have used only bare minerals for eight years now and my skin is beautiful. It's natural it covers, and you can sleep in it. Nobody can tell if you have make-up on.
Not for aging skin
I have been a BE user since it was offered on OVC. It was a five star product at that time. I loved my color, application with the brush provided, the coverage and how light it felt on my skin. I use good skin care, but you just can't fight your genes and the hands of time. As my skin aged, the minerals began to settle in my fine and deeper lines. I followed the suggestion provided by the BE customer service. But as my skin kept aging nothing stopped the settling. I was force to change my makeup. I now use and anti-aging CC cream that provides excellent coverage, has a higher SPF, is just as light on my skin, lasts a longer time, and does not sit in any of my wrinkles. So I warn those women who even use good skin care to be aware that there is no way to keep the minerals from settling into your lines. It was a sad day when I had to switch. I can still use many other BE products.
Love Love Love
I recently bought the Laura Geller TSV and am so sorry. I have been a Bare Minerals fan and will not stray again. I love these products and am really impressed with this foundation. It is expensive and it does cost the same everywhere, but it an investment in me that pays off. Very good coverage, easy to swirl and tap and use another layer if you want more coverage.
Best purchase ever
I love wearing this foundation, I am 60 years old I wash my face with a cleanser and moisturize afterwards I don't see any lines and wrinkles on my face or see any pores close up, this is unusual for a lady 60 years old,
I just be sure I take off all of my makeup the night before and don't have any left on my face or on my eyes. I just brush a light dusting of foundation and mineral veil and blush and eye shadow, I don't wear mascara, just eye liner and eye shadow.
I had tried several different shades by guessing what would work and nothing worked. Thought that BareMinerals just wasn't for me. I finally got smart this year and went to the store to have a professional look at my skin. Yay! I am a fairly medium, which I would never have guessed. It's definitely worth the trouble to get the right shade.
I am on a budget. So I tried the drug store brands of "Mineral" make-up! What a waste of money. I have actually been using this for years and because of my budget I tried other brands. I don't think I will be making that mistake again.
Don't get me wrong, I love this make-up and I will continue to buy it. My problem with my latest purchase is the amount in the container seems less than in purchases before. It's been a while since I ordered because I was using the last of my extra-large that I had purchased last time. When I received this shipment, just looks like the price might be the same, but, looks like less product. Not too happy with that situation. Hoping it's just my eyes, but I don't think so. Just wanted everyone to be aware!!
I love this foundation. I have been using it for several years and it is a wonderful product. The coverage is great and it is so light on the face. I use the mineral veil and love that also. Highly recommend!
Help with the container
For those of you that are complaining that you can't get the last of the foundation out, here is what you do. Turn the jar over and take a butter knife and just pop off the bottom lid. It's that simple. I love the sifter. So much easier to travel with. I wish all of the loose minerals came with it. Also to add, this is the best foundation ever made!!! I stray every now then and always come back to this.
What happen to Bare Minerals
I have used BM for ten years. I quit using it about 2 years ago, because it was settling into my fine lines under my eyes and enhancing my pores. I wanted to give it another try, and now it makes my skin burn and itch, and it makes me look much older than I am. I wish I could find a foundation that don't do this to my skin. I am 47 and this foundation is not flattering in the least. My 22 year old daughter used to love this foundation also but she no longer uses it because it looks like she is wearing powder and it burns her skin also. I wish Leslie would bring back the diamond kits they where the best.
