bareMinerals bareSkin Serum Foundation SPF 20 w/ Brush
This is by far the best makeup ever! So rich & creamy & applies smoothly. It covers evey flaw & looks like your own beautiful skin. Love it!
I got this as a TVS, so I have been using it for a while. The coverage is good, not heavy. Good for oily skin, I do use a powder over it, covers the dark circles under my eyes. I am very picky, I usually don't write many reviews, but I thought I needed to write this one so they want stop making it. I too used to wear bareMinerals powder foundation, but stopped a while back because I found I was not getting the coverage that this 52 year old needed. Since then I have tried a lot of products, & this one is great.
nice & light
I actually like this a lot. I am usually an It girl, however I use a lot of different items. I have some rosacea etc. and I also have "personal summer" issues and sweat from my neck up. Some of my other foundations etc. are heavier but this is nice and light. I can use as little or as much as I want to... small amt for light coverage on the hot muggy just running to the store type of days or double the amt for all day covg. I have to remember to shake it first. I will buy this again.
I don't like to wear foundation and usually go with a bronzer. I am fair skinned with freckles and red hair and in my late 40's. I don't like the feel or look of foundation but am finding my skin needs a pick me up! I was uncertain as to the color I needed so I went to the local bare essentials store and got tested for the correct color. I then ordered. I am very impressed with the foundation. It is easy to wear, comfortable and provides just what I was looking for BUT I personally found the brush irritating to my skin. The idea is great and I wished I could have kept it but I tried several attempts in different techniques and it was just a little too firm I guess. I do have sensitive skin. I returned and reordered just the foundation. I also find that this does not make my skin greasy and it wears very well after a long day. I take just 2 drops and dot around my face and blend carefully with my fingers. Very nice and I would definitely reorder again!
Less is more
A little goes a long way. One or two drops creates a light natural finish. If more coverage desired, gradually build, otherwise it appears too heavy and thick. It's amazing though, even with heavy coverage , it still feels lightweight and natural. Biggest suggestion is to experiment with different tools. Beauty blender or other brushes are great . I've even used the lighter shades for concealer & highlighter, but takes practice getting the right amount in such a small area.
Best bare Minerals Ever.
I am 68 and had a few deep wrinkles between Eyes and forehead. This lotion is amazing they are still there but boy does this cover them UP.
I see people who think that they have trouble putting it in the brush. Here is the quick fix:
Shake this several times then turn it up set down and place as many drops as you need I use 3 drops and it works just great. I dab this on my face from the brush and using the brush side gently smooth it out this way it does not feel thick just perfect on the face:)
I really love this product especially the brush that comes with it. I've tried using application brushes before and didn't like them because I would lose most of the product within the bristles and the application felt weird. With this brush the foundation sits nicely on top within the little divot area and it truly blends in with my skin.
I used to use a ton of concealer for the redness in my cheeks area, but this foundation covers it wonderfully. The only downside is there is a slight off-putting smell to the foundation, which is why it is only getting four stars. If the company ever fixes that this will easily be a five star product.
Helpful tip: After shaking the bottle to mix the product it is a good idea to tap the bottle on the counter several times to move the excess air to the top so the makeup doesn't spit out at you when you open the cap.
VERY IMPRESSED !!!!!!!!
Was a little reluctant to order. Was so glad I did. The color was a little to dark but kept it cause I liked it so much. With summer here I figured I could pull it off. So easy to use and the coverage is wonderful. Not a BM girl in the past but I am now. I am 58 years and love the way it makes my skin look and feel.
In looking over their products I will be ordering more. BM prices seem better than most and lots of good reviews.
I had use BM mineral exclusively for about 5 yrs then felt I needed a liquid foundation. So I've used Smashbox-Makeup Forever & Chanel over the last 5 yrs.when I saw this-I knew I wanted to try it & got it on easy pay plus the brush included-very good deal. I'm very fair & ordered Ivory. Have used it 4 times so far & after getting several opinions from friends-they say it looks very good. I think it looks very good but it is so much lighter in the bottle than any of my other liquids. I'm contemplating buying another color-just a little darker. Have any of u had this quandary ? As I said-it looks fine & no lighter than my others on my face- but I guess the difference in the colors in the bottles throws me off. It covers amazingly & I only used 2 more drops than was recommended. If any if you have a suggestion-please pass it in. It won't hurt to just have another darker color anyway as I don't want to give up this color either. Sorry for my long explanation!! Any help would be appreciated!!
Amazing Airbrushed Look
I ordered this about a week and a half ago and I am disappointed to say that shipping took way longer than usual for qvc and it was about 10 days before I got this. I didn't have very high hopes for this but I like the way you applied it with this brush and thought it was unique enough to try. The day I was planning on trying it out for the first time I happened to see a commercial on tv for this foundation on a regular channel not qvc and the girls make up so perfect and pretty. it was actual too perfect and looked airbrushed. So I went to try it and I was AMAZED I looked just as airbrushed as the girl on TV! My make up felt very light on my skin I really couldn't "feel" that I was wearing any make up. I have tried several lines from qvc and none have preformed as well as this foundation. I used at least 6 drops maybe 8 altogether on my face doing about 2 drops at a time and it worked well. I have some acne that I get around chin and upper lip area and it all disappeared when this was applied. Please don't hesitate to try it....you very well could have amazing results like I and the girl on the commercial did! :)
best liquid mineral
I never thought I would change from the regular bareminerals foundation and I dislike liquid makeup, but this foundation is different. It has just enough coverage without being heavy, and leaves my skin fresh and alive. I still use regular bareminerals, but I change out with the serum foundation. It is a great foundation for women with rosacea!
Not what I expected
Makeup feels too heavy on face and leaves my skin dry and flaky. Sorry Bare Minerals going back to the original Bare Minerals foundation I have used for years. Returning this product.
