bareMinerals bareSkin Serum Foundation SPF 20 w/ Brush
I USE THE ORIGINAL BM POWDER FOUNDATION BUT WANTED TO TRY THIS NEW SERUM FOUNDATION. I AM IN MY EARLY 60's SO MY SKIN ISN'T "PERFECT". I DEAL WITH SOME DRY FLAKEY AREAS, FINE LINES AND ENLARGED PORES. I FOUND THAT THIS BM SERUM ACCENTUATED THESE FLAWS. I EVEN TRIED A COUPLE DIFFERENT PRIMERS. IT DID HELP WITH COVERAGE OF REDNESS, ETC. THOUGH. I THINK IT WOULD WORK NICELY ON SMOOTH SKIN. I WILL CONTINUE TO USE THE BM ORIGINAL POWER FOUNDATION AS IT WORKS BEST FOR ME.
So easy to put on. Great coverage and doesn't feel heavy. Love the new brush.
I'm a 37 yr. old woman with normal skin except for my chin (what's up with that?). When I turned 35 my chin developed another skin personality...I swear. I have been on a quest since then to find a concealer/foundation/spackle/stage make up (yes, I went there) to fix the situation. I saw the presentation for this when it was in advanced orders and I jumped. Why not? I've been BM Gal for years. Well, ladies, this little bottle is my Hallelujah Chorus! It's perfect. Buildable coverage, staying power, angel soft, air brushed look, no odor, no caking, and the brush, THE BRUSH. MAGIC. Worth every penny. Try it, please!
I LOVE IT!!
I have been reading some of the reviews & I think this serum foundation is having some of the same problems that the original BM powdered foundation had. The brush & primer are a must for me. Also you don't need to use a lot--when you do you will get the oily look. I use a little of the Mineral Veil after I apply & it is set for all day. It is a product that takes some time to get used to but once you get your color & routine for application, let me tell you--it only takes 5 minutes for all my makeup! It leaves a dewy look to your skin that definitely makes your skin look younger. I love it & it cant be beat. That said, I wish they could come up with a better bottle or delivery system for it. This hard bottle is hard to use & make sure you get the right amount. Maybe a bottle with a dropper or something that would have a more controlled delivery. Anyway, thanks BM for this wonderful foundation.
I love this new foundation! Ive been a bare minerals user since I was 16 , so almost a decade, and I was soo excited when they cane out with this product. It goes on smooth and feels so good on my skin! If you think the powder foundations felt like you had no make up on then this liquid will blow your mind! It feels like air! The coverage is just wonderful! It covers what I need it to cover perfectly and it is the only make up that had ever matched my skin perfectly! Plus its good for your skin! !! What more could you ask for? I love it and I highly recommend it!
P.s. The brush is a must too!! Its just the icing on this fabulous cake! Well made and amazing!
Surprised by a Liquid!
Really Suprised.....I got a sample of this at a boutique. Really hesitant to use liquid again. Been using traditional BM foundation for a few years now. Even before I found BM I was only using translucent powder as a base. I only used liquids if I had a breakout or something. I tried this product and was honestly very surprised. So surprised that I am purchasing full size to use for a while. Was not heavy. No makeup feel. Gave a nice even "dewey" look. Lasted well ALL DAY. Not saying I won't switch back and forth, but never thought I'd buy liquid again. Give this stuff a try!
I purchased the first one, it was too light and too late to return, so I ordered the next shade darker, now I mix 1 drop of each and it works very well. I do like the brush and how it applies. The two problems I have is some oiliness and shine. I lightly put a powder over it. As the day wears on the shine goes away. When I take my makeup off at night I'm surprised to see how much makeup I really have on. The bottle clogs, I used a needle to clear it and makeup poured out all over, a few times, be careful.
Make up did not perform or look natural. I was very disappointed.
What a mess stick with the powder
This was a mess streaky, and messy with the brush and all.....I will stick with the original powder
Greasy-feeling with sheer coverage
I received a sample of this product and really had high hopes for it (though, I do not have the brush). Sadly, I was very disappointed. The shade is a good match, but the coverage is very poor - even worse than BB or CC creams that are intended to have quite sheer coverage. In addition, the product felt quite oily/greasy and that feeling didn't go away even after I used a setting powder. I was really hoping that this would work because I really enjoy bareMinerals products (for the most part) and I can no longer use their mineral foundation because I've developed an allergy to bismuth oxychloride. Many women have this allergy and I find it disheartening that bM continues to use this in their foundation.
Love the brush! The liquid is a bit heavier than I thought it would be but it works fine. Looks better with loose powder finish to set. As always, though, it breaks my skin out like every other foundation except Max Factor which I can no longer find. I will use this up but will not re-purchase.
Leaves your skin looking really oily! Wish I would of returned it on time now I'm stuck with it.
