The is the worst foundation that I have ever tried. I tried it a few years back on a whim after speaking with an Ulta Associate about looking for a new foundation. She convinced me to try it. At the time, my roommate was also using the same thing and liked it so I decided to give it a try. I usually always finish something even if I am not wild about it. I hate wasting things I've spent money on! But in this case, I could not finish this foundation. It dried out my skin A LOT, especially on my forehead. My forehead was very flaky. I couldn't even handle how dry my skin was from this. This was the only thing that I had changed in my routine so it had to be this. I will never try this product again. Unfortunately that was my first and only Bare Minerals experience.

I've only worn concealer. I havent had a foundation in so long. I thought it was time. I specifically asked for a foundation that will not cause more acne and doesnt have bad ingredients. I got recommended this by an Ulta worker. I wanted something to cover my acne without making my skin dry as heck. I have flaky skin from the acne medication I take. It looked good. Doesn't make my skin more flaky. Unfortunately I haven't found a solution to rid of all flakeyness. Covers redness nicely. Only thing is my color is completely off and I need a lighter one. I've been miXing it with Mehron foundation. I'm a super pale ginger.

I really enjoy this liquid foundation. However, the brushes that BareMinerals sells completely fall apart once you wash them. I even bought their makeup brush cleanser and brush and dry my brushes correctly. Bareminerals is the only brand of brushes I’ve ever had a problem with in regards to brush cleansing. The brush after a single wash leaves black hairs from the brush all over my face and is very hard to get off! I even talked to consultants in the store and they agreed with me. They referred me to try another brush in their store but it doesn’t blend as well as the specific brush that goes with the product.
I originally received a sample of this from Sephora and was not fond of it. I then received another sample via a subscription box so I tried it again and realized that I had not applied it correctly the first time. The second time around I shook the bottle longer than it probably needed. I like the way this blurs imperfections yet does not hide the real me. I would give this 5 stars if you were able to apply with other implements than the specific brush for it.

I used bare minerals foundation powder throughout my teens into my 20s and naturally when this product came out I wanted to try it. It seemed great at first, until I tried a B.B. cream by smashbox that was a game changer for me. I realized that this product is not long lasting, and has minimal coverage. It has a more oily consistency that was ok for my dry skin, but it seems to easily wipe off. I tried it when it first came out, so maybe if they’ve changed their formula I might like it!

I love the clean ingredients in this. No fragrant extracts or silicones. It’s very sheer coverage if you apply it the recommended way, but you can build it up to fuller coverage with a different brush. It does seem to emphasis my dry patches more than the powder foundation does though weirdly enough. Also shade range isn’t great. I’m very fair but yellow tones and the lightest colors are too pink and the shade I have is slightly too dark.
This is literally my new favorite foundation! It’s really hard to find a foundation you like but when you do it’s like you want to shout it from a mountaintop, this is that foundation for me! Super lightweight, easy to wear, blend able, and amazing coverage! It’s literally everything I could’ve asked for in a foundation!

Mehh. It didn't impress me. The coverage is buidable and the finish is like a natural finish. I use a dense brush to apply (f80) and it looks ok... with some brushes you can see a lot of streak marks and it looks horrible. I find that it makes me look dry ( I have dry skin ) and at the same time , it wears off during the day ... I don't know just didn't work for me.
This is my favorite foundation along with BECCAs Louis foundation, sometimes I mix the two. Such a great selection of colors for women of all different skin tones and healthy! Least toxic makeup ever. Goes on the skin evenly and sits nicely if used with the right primer. Can get oily if you have oily skin I do not recommend
emcanto esta base porque estaba buscando una base con consistencia ligera y es exactamente lo que es tiene un poco de consistencia aceitosa pero hace que mi cara se vea con brillo y no grasosa pues mi cara es un poco seca no la recomiendo para cubrir espinillas o imperfecciones pues es una consistencia muy ligera repito
Q & A
Is this a good winter foundation?
What is the best way to apply this? Would you recommend a brush or beauty blender?
I just bought this and I anticipate one bottle will last a long because of how little I use each time but I was currious how often people find themselves running out?
Does this foundation last a long time on the face.
Does anyone else think this product smells funny?
