This was my HG for years when I was younger, but I have since branched out to bigger and better things. Even though I have sensitive, combination skin, I have found a new found love for BB cream, stick foundations, and cream foundations. No matter how meticulously I used to apply my Bare Minerals foundation, and no matter how much I blended it in, I felt like I was never able to achieve the your skin but better skin look that I tried so desperately to achieve with this product. If you have oily skin, the matte version of this foundation will be a better choice for you. And it definitely won’t irritate sensitive skin or cause blemishes on those with acne prone skin. In fact, the minerals in this foundation help improve your skin’s appearance over time. If I found a formula from them that fit my needs to perfection, I would gladly switch back to using their makeup again. They are great brand with wonderful products at an affordable price point. I highly recommend getting color matched in store. And if you purchased your foundation in Summer or Winter and your skin is now a lot paler or tanner, they can help you get an additional shade to customize the perfect hue for your skin tone year round without breaking the bank. The additional SPF in their products is an added bonus as well. :)

Review for: Fairly Light more...
I have really dry skin so I have to moisturize before using  bareMinerals ORIGINAL Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15 . I used to use liquid foundation but my skin wasn't working with any of the foundations I used. I would break out and my skin just wasn't working with liquid foundation. My friend recommended me to get  bareMinerals ORIGINAL Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15  and I did. Then I was about 14 and I thought that it was expensive. But when I started using bareMinerals ORIGINAL Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15 my face wasn't breaking out as much.

   The coverage was and is still great. it doesn't look cakey or noticeable. As long as you blend it in a little it looks 100% natural. I also feel like this product would be great for people who have oily skin. Since it is a powder and it won't make your skin even more oily looking.
   Like a lot of liquid foundations. When I apply this on my face I also use it as a primer on my eyelid. It works for me. Overall this product is amazing and I use it almost every time I apply makeup on my skin.

I have been using this foundation for 10+ years, and it has always been my go to. I'm not much on Cream/liquid foundations. They break me out and look cakey and greasy, no matter what brand/type/technique I use. This is my tried and true foundation. Coverage can be built from sheer to medium. There's a huge shade selection, but there's also some leeway if you don't have a perfect match. I prefer the original, but the matte is good as well. It's got a built in spf, and it's super quick and easy to apply. You just can't go wrong with it. The price is perfect, considering how expensive foundations can get these days. It's the perfect natural, flawless no makeup look, while making your skin look more even toned, dewy, and just all around gorgeous. Sometimes I layer it over a BB cream for better coverage and it's perfect. Highly recommend this classic foundation if you are a powder kinda gal like me!

I love this foundation for a natural, every day look! I don't need a lot of coverage so I find this perfect for me, I just have a little redness on my cheeks and some small acne scars on my chin that this foundation easily covers up. If you are looking for full coverage, this probably won't be a the best option, unless you want something a little lighter for those "no-makeup" days.
it is so easy to apply too - buff it in small circles and it melts and blends into your skin so nicely that it looks like you just have naturally flawless skin. I prefer using a brush with firm bristles like the Real Techniques Expert Face Brush because it blends in much more easily, where softer brushes seem to just leave the powder sitting on your skin instead of buffing in.
This is my go-to foundation for work and casual errands days, and pretty much all the time. I highly recommend this!

Me and my entire family have been using this product for about a decade, and for good reason. I only use the original as the matte version is very thick, and this is hands-down the best foundation I’ve ever used. It creates a flawless, natural look. I get compliments on my skin all the time and no one ever believes I’m wearing foundation. I typically buy it during the holiday season as they offer a larger special edition version for a slight price increase, and it lasts me the entire year. I cannot rave about this product more. The coverage is awesome without making your skin look cakey, and it never makes me break out. That’s the best part. Sometimes I work very late and I fell asleep with my make up on. I have tried a million different foundations, they all make me break out except for this one. I have very sensitive skin, and this product is my end-all.

Review for: Fairly Light more...
I only gave this 4 stars instead of 5 because although it is the most awesome makeup and I swear it made my skin tone look more even the longer I wore it and I could sleep in it and not break out the pots were messy and difficult to deal with if you were in a hurry or- well they're just messy. But, I do want to again try the pro compact and wondered if anyone has tried that and if it is good as the loose powder? I want a compact I can carry in my purse without it making a mess in my nice purse. I tried the pro before but I was having adult acne flare up right then and wasn't sure what was breaking me out so I returned it. I can say that this is a great product and it is pretty much sweat proof even if you use your hand to wipe sweat off the makeup stays for the most part because it Buffs into your skin with such a fine dust that it doesn't really white much off when you sweat and it does even out your skin tone and you can sleep in it which is great! I'm going next for one of the compacts. Oh, did I mention it has SPF? That is wonderful in a powder. Now I give it 5 stars

This is the only foundation I use on my face and it leaves my face feel lite, not heavy like other foundations.  I feel to be affordable and last so long.  It's packaging is perfect for any make up bag and i dont have to worry about leakage.  I don't have any Cons on this product at all.  My pros are simple, it has actually made my skin look and feel so much better.  Other foundations have caused breakouts and my skin feeling oily.  BareMinerals has actually improved my skin!  I totally recommend others to invest in BareMinerals and I guarantee you will never purchase another foundation!!!!   #giftcrush

I’m allergic to all cream /liquid foundation . My friend recommended me trying Bare Minerals since it a powered form . I’ve been using it ever since and I have not turn back . It goes on smooth and covers all of my uneven skin tones that I wanted in the begin with , all you do is use their special brush put some in the cap Twirl , Tap,apply, only need a little bit since it covers so evenly and it last a long time . If you go in and not sure on your color they will give you a free consult, when they asked questions on what your looking for and they help you find the perfect color and perfect products

I purchased the bareMinerals foundation because I was looking for a product that wouldn't feel heavy on my face. I hadn't had good luck with liquid foundations and wanted to go another route. I liked the feel of the foundation on my face. It's nice and light, unlike some of the liquid foundations I've tried. I was not overly impressed with the coverage, though. I tend to have an uneven skin tone and am prone to breakouts, which this foundation did not help to hide. I was told the foundation is buildable, but still was not overly impressed with that aspect of the product.
