I have used the bareMinerals matte loose powder foundation for YEARS and I have recently started to change my makeup routine a bit so that I look a little bit more "finished" and put together. This powder is the bees nees for that. I do sometimes use liquid foundations for FULL coverage but I noticed that those really do a number on my skin afterwards - I kind of have to let my skin recover from that thick stuff for a few days. But this bareMinerals barePRO foundation is PERFECT. It provides the coverage that I want, which is also buildable, feels soft and dry (not tacky) on my skin, and my skin has absolutely no issues with it on, even if I layer it for full full coverage. The color match is perfect for my skin (there are a lot of choices!) and I use it with the bareMinerals brush with the little core inside. I love that with this foundation, my other face makeup applies so much more evenly (contouring products, blush and bronzer). It stays all day, even if I am out in the hot Texas sun all day, and my face doesn't get oily like it does with other products. I love that I can also use this on my "light makeup" days and it still looks finished and provides a matte look on my skin. Can't say enough - LOVE this!

I picked this foundation up on a whim after seeing the display at my local Ulta, and boy am glad I did. I always use pressed powder foundation vs a liquid and had been looking for a new one for quite a while. I'm a redhead with an almost-ghostly complexion and often times even the lightest shade of a product is too dark for me. Luckily this lightest shade, Fair 01, is a pretty perfect match (went on a bit lighter than I expected from just looking at it). It's more medium coverage than full I'd say but can be layered for more coverage if need be. The consistency is so smooth that it glides on my skin like a dream, and it lasts great throughout the day. *Disclaimer I do use Laura Geller Mattifying Spackle Primer first, as well as UD All Nighter Setting Spray last and it goes a long way to keeping my oily t-zone shine-free* I had also picked up the corresponding Core Coverage Brush with it (shown in pic and sold separately) and it applies this foundation just beautifully.

I have been dying for this foundation and could not wait to get my hands on it! I was so excited to try it out when I got the chanceūüėĽ a few key points that I saw that was a really cool idea was that it's suppose to be a twelve hour wear foundation, it's a breathable micro mesh formula, it has a ultra smooth silky texture, customizable full coverage, also clinicly shown to improve skin clarity, reduce pore size and Control shine.ūüėĪ with vitamins and minerals how much more could you ask for!? It's a very cute sleek compact case that comes with a little puff brush for touch-ups. Very #travel case worthyūüėć when you apply with the foundation brudh, you may notice a like "natural" full coverage but! To me it's not like a "full Coverage" full coverage it's more natural looking. For a powder product it's very sheer and not very "powdery" lol. But with the puff brush stored under the case, you will notice a big difference you will get a full coverage than before.

Great alternative to the bareMinerals loose foundation! For me, summer is a time when i tend to set aside my heavy liquid foundations and go for something a little lighter and easier to apply! When barePRO was released I figured I would give it a try...I had recently started reaching for my old loose mineral foundation but hated the mess. With barePRO the mess is gone. The colour selection is amazing (go for one that looks darker than you think you need!) the powder has little to no "fall out" so you are not loosing money, blends into the skin seamlessly and goes on nicely over a light bb cream (if you want a little extra coverage) or alone for a clean, natural and flawless look!
Oh and bonus, at 7 months pregnant this takes little to no time and I quickly feel like I have put effort into my appearance when really it is almost as easy as doing nothing!!

I purchased the bareminerals BarePro foundation powder with the intention of using it as a setting powder. I have a lot of hyperpygmentation from acne and powder foundation doesn't give enough coverage. I also have combo oily skin. I have used it for a few days and originally I really liked it. It gave that extra bit of coverage with my light to medium liquid foundation. However, I noticed that throughout the day it would start to accentuate my pores and dry spots, and seperate around my mouth and nose. I would also start to look really shiny after a few hours of wear.
If you are looking for a setting powder, I would recommend the itcosmetics Your Skin But Better CC+ Airbrush Perfecting Powder. That powder blurs my pores and keeps me shine free for hours.

I was an avid user of the bare minerals ready foundation. I was very disappointed when they discontinued it and came out with the performance wear powder. I gave in and tried the performance wear and although I do not
Like it nearly as much and I loved the ready foundation, I will continue to use it until I can find a product similar to the ready foundation. The performance wear leaves my skin feeling really soft, but I do not feel it gives as great of a coverage as the ready foundation did. Also, I the ready foundation came in a tone that was perfect for me skin. The performance wear doesn't have any shades comparable to that tone so I either had to settle with a Shade that
Was a little too dark or a little too light.

I absolutely love this! Honestly working for bare at the bare essentials counter, I've gotten to know more about this product as a whole and I've gotten to know that for a power foundation it COVERS! WhEn most hear powder foundation they automatically think of the word "ashy" but this foundation doesn't give you that feel, this very light weight so you don't feel anything as if you have makeup on but trust this is one of the best coverage foundation yet. Not only that but it comes in thirty different shades so everyone no matter what complexion you have a chance at barepro

First off, I was very skeptical to try this product because I really liked the compact powder it was replacing but after one use I fell in love. It comes with a makeup sponge, but I use my full coverage brush to apply and it looks so natural. I've been using it for a few weeks and my skin looks so much better. The compact always lasts me a lot longer than the loose powder foundation (6 months as opposed to 2 months) so the $2 extra wasn't too much to complain about. I also loved that it came in so many shades that I found a perfect match for my skin tone.

I love the coverage, it builds up nicely and I can buff it out evenly. What's surprising is how silky the powder is and it doesn't kick up powder.
I wish the pan was deeper however. When I lifted up the powder to get to the sponge I was disappointed at how deep the pan really is. Hopefully the powder is pressed in tightly so you actually get more than you think.
The only other thing is I find that warm natural seems to dull out my skin color like it's a bit greyish??? Will have to change my color match for this product

I asked for assistance at an Ulta store and the lady persuaded me to test out this new line and I absolutely loved it! It goes on creamy and then dries to a powder. I also use the tinted BareMinerals BB cream underneath to help last all day. I would say the foundation is a medium coverage but could easily be layered on for a fuller look. I also use the recommended brush for an even application. Also, if you are interested, you should go test it out on your skin because there are so many different shades to pick from!
