    I been using this foundation for a year now and omg I have a love and a lil hate relationship. My reasons why. So my skin is super oily and I break out somewhat often.😒

    This foundation keeps me matte for about 6hours and it’s definitely full coverage, another thing would be it’s the color range and undertones it’s a really good variety of colors easy to find your perfect shade . It also doesn’t break me out more. Why I sometimes hate it , it dries too fast like as soon as you started applying on the skin it starts to dry and you have to work really fast to blend it out. You also can’t add a second layer because it will feel heavy. I would say that’s the only thing I don’t like , other then that this is my go to foundation for my everyday use .bareMinerals barePRO® Performance Wear Liquid Foundation

    Review for: Cool Beige 10 more...
    I have used Bare Minerals makeup for the last 8 years probably. I used the BareMinerals Ready foundation SPF20. I bought the angled brush and the setting veil that they recommended with this product back when I first started using it. I had no complaints I loved it. Worked amazingly. Because I am always curious and like to experiment somewhat I have been trying other formulas and other brands for about two years. During my birthday month I noticed that I was one product away from being completely out of the BareMinerals Ready Foundation so I went online to order some to restock for when I decided to give it another go. I mean I knew all about it, it had been my go to foundation for so long so I didn’t ever want to be completely out of it. When I got online it was no longer available. I panicked. I got involved with a live chat representative and she talked me into ordering the BarePro Performance Wear Liquid Foundation SPF20. She suggested that I order the Cool Beige 10 color because they had 30
    different options of colors to pick from I was completely confused. She based this on my history of what I wore in the discontinued makeup. My makeup arrived a couple of days ago and here’s my review after wearing it three days. First of all the packaging is incredible. You have a glass bottle that contains 1 fluid ounce of makeup for approx $36. It does have a nice pump. It reminds me of Mac foundation packaging and pump. It states that you only need one pump for your entire face. This is however false. I have been using three. Also I have used it with straight moisturizer and also with primers. It still seems to slide basically right off my face. I also used a beauty blender and a brush to apply it and surprisingly found that it went on better with the brush. It states that it’s for all skin tones but here again False. It dries very quickly when you put it on and it is somewhat tacky feeling. It is a matte makeup. If you use concealer on top of it it seems to provide creasing and dry lines immediately. You definitely have to use concealer before applying the foundation and hope that you have everything covered. There’s no way this last 24 hours I’ve had to touch up at least three times a day. I am using the BareMinerals Veil to set it and it doesn’t seem to make it last any longer. It becomes patchy and around my nose area and chin area shows the patches worse than other places. The color is ok. Not great just ok. I’m so confused as to how they discontinued something that was incredible and have offered a substitute that is not even in the same ballgame. I’m going to continue to try different primers and setting products. I’m just not happy yet with this product.

    Let me start this by saying I love a lot of bareminerals products, and I really wanted to like this foundation. This ended up being a really weird product for me. It was super hard to blend out when applying it and it would have weird lines where patches would overlap. Then, it wouldn't stay on my nose. At all. Like as soon as I blended it in it just blended away. After an hour or so of wear I would get really blotchy patches where it was clinging to texture on my skin. I have oily skin but it made me look sooo dry, Finally, after about 4 hours of wear it would look really good. It was super confusing and I tried for a long time to make this work, but I ultimately returned it.

    This foundation is one of my favorites!!! It's super full coverage and it has a pretty good shade range. It's a matte finish but doesn't look cakey on the skin. It also has SPF 20 and I don't notice a ton of flashback with it. The only thing I can "complain" about is the fact that some of the shades oxidize. As a former Ulta employee, sometimes I had to pick a shade or two lighter than the guest's skin tone and go from there. Other than that this foundation is great! And when it comes to prestige products, it's more on the affordable side.

    THE ONE I'VE BEEN LOOKING FOR! Okay, so when this foundation was first released, it got a hard pass from me because I saw it was full coverage and matte, which are two things I steer clear of. My skin is normal, being slightly oily in my t-zone but nothing too terrible. I also have pretty clear skin (for the most part) and tend to opt for a more natural finish. Recently, I attended a Bare Minerals masterclass at the Ulta I work at and it was centered around their entire BarePro line. I didn't expect to like (let alone LOVE) any of the products, but I decided to keep an open mind. When we applied the foundation, we used their Luxe Performance brush that was created to work specifically with this foundation (another thing I was skeptical about, being an avid Beauty Blender user my whole makeup-wearing life). After I applied the foundation I noticed it covered all the redness I have (I just started using Differin so my skin is adjusting to the high levels of retinol), and it didn't emphasize any dry patches; it just glided over everything so effortlessly. They then had us apply the concealer (which is also a godsend for someone with deep expression lines under her eyes aka me), and moved right into the bronzer. I, being someone who tends to be more on the oily side, was confused when we did not set the foundation with powder, as I've never applied liquid foundation without setting it afterwards. I shrugged it off and continued following the instruction of the artist. After the class was done, I shopped around the store for a bit, and I noticed I couldn't stop staring at myself in every mirror I passed. My skin looked so natural and skin-like, but also nearly flawless. I could still see my freckles, a feature I like to embrace rather than hide, but the rest of my skin tone was evened out. My mom urged me to purchase this foundation (which she never does because I have more makeup than anyone knows what to do with), so I was sold. I decided to keep my makeup on all day to see how well the foundation would hold up throughout the day, even though I had originally intended to wash it off after the class. I was shocked when every time I looked in the mirror (I did check-ins every hour), it looked like it was freshly applied! My normally oily t-zone did not look shiny until around the 14 hour mark, which was right before I was going to remove my makeup for the day anyway. I have been wearing this foundation every day for the past few weeks and it still is just as beautiful as the first time I tried it, and I have never once set it with powder. If you have dry to slightly oily skin, you should be able to get away with never having to powder with this, and if you have oily skin, you may need to touch up with a bit of powder later on in the day, but it will still look beautiful before and after. I cannot stop recommending this foundation to every customer that asks for a new foundation, and I've had a few customers already come back in to tell me how much they love it.

    I really wanted to love their foundation because I love bare minerals, however it left a bit to be desired. It goes on pretty smooth, but it ALWAYS settles into the small wrinkles and cracks around/under my eyes and manages to streak across my chin. I've tried using different brushes, sponges, facial cleaners, setting spray, facial primer-- you name it. And I always have an issue. I'm going to finish the bottle that I have and try to find another foundation.

    I ended up purchasing this during ultas Christmas sale. I ended up absolutely loving it. I truly have never found a foundation that matches my skin better than this. It’s seriously lightweight with major coverage. It goes on totally smoothly and doesn’t cake. It stays on my skin all day. I honestly feel like my skin started looking better (underneath) and felt healthier after use. I will continue to use this and I highly recommend it.

    LOVE! After trying different brands that people "hyped" about, I came back to BareMinerals. I love how light it is, and the full coverage you can achieve with it without making it look too heavy and/or cakey. You can honestly get a really good coverage with this makeup, not sure why it's not more popular to younger audiences. I really love this makeup :) Been using it since I was 16, first makeup brand I ever bought/used.

    I’ve never been a huge makeup person but I’ve always kinda wanted to be. I have an Ipsysubscription that sends me makeup every month, which I love but most of the products are sample size. This is great because I can try out the product and if I love it, I can buy the full size product. Ipsy usually has a discount code for that too. I love a good natural looking foundation, which is why I’ve been using bareMinerals original foundation for years! I recently ran out of my foundation and thought I would try out bareMinerals barePro liquid foundation. It wasn’t too much more than the powder foundation, but I was hesitant at first because I’ve always had issues with liquid foundation. In the past it’s been heavy and feels like I’m wearing another face to be completely honest.I decided I could give bareMinerals liquid foundation a try though because I had been reading great reviews on it. I went down to Ulta and had them test it out on me. I already knew my shade in the powder foundation, so it was the same in the liquid. Easy enough right? The wonderful woman at Ulta started to put it on me and it immediately felt lighter than any liquid foundation I had used in the past. She used a brush to apply it, but said that it could be applied with a sponge too. I use a medium face contour brush by crown. You don’t need much of the foundation at all, as you can see pictured above. After I apply the liquid foundation I use the powder mineral veil to set it. With both of these, I still feel as though I’m not wearing much makeup at all. It doesn’t even smudge off if I rub my face like a lot of makeup does AND you can still see my freckles! Overall this liquid foundation is everything I could have asked for and more.

    Review for: Fair 01 more...
    I am giving this 4 stars only bc this product claims to be full coverage and it’s really more of a medium coverage. That being said it can be built up easily to full coverage. It also doesn’t stay on my nose very well even when using a primer and setting powder and spray. If anyone has any tips about that please let me know bc I am probably going to try a different foundation when I run out, simply bc I hate having to touch up my face several times a day and I really do like this foundation! This product has a very pretty satin finish and does not oxidize after being applied. This product has also not broken me out either and I have had a hard time finding a product that does not break me out. I would definitely repurchase this product if I can just figure out how to keep it on my nose! Also I have very dry skin and this foundation does not dry me out at all! So to all my dry skin girls this one is for you!!!!
