Top Questions See all 266 Q&A
Consistency/coverage: The foundation has more of a creamy consistency, instead of a liquid (compared to the bareminerals barePRO foundation). One pump is enough for light/medium coverage. Even with concealer, one layer of the foundation is not enough to cover all my blemishes and dark spots. The foundation is buildable if you want more of a medium/full coverage. However, it’s not as full coverage as the barePRO foundation. The foundation has a mostly matte finish, but fully matte.
Application: I used one of my Morphe brushes to apply the foundation. When using the brush, the foundation was easy to apply evenly and did not streak. It does take some time for the foundation to dry and set (maybe about 1-2 minutes) instead of drying right away.
Color: In the bareminerals original foundation, I am a golden medium 14 and in the barePRO foundation, I am a toffee 19 during the summer months. The first foundation I received was too light for my skin tone and did not have enough golden undertone, so it made me look pale. The second foundation I received was a perfect match and was much closer to the golden medium 14 color I normally wear. I liked how the shade was a perfect match, because I do have a hard time looking for foundations that match perfectly. I tan very easily and my skin tone changes frequently.
Shade matching process: It took two attempts in order for me to receive the perfect shade. Customer service was very helpful and friendly in issuing me a reorder code for my second shade match. They received my feedback via phone and was able to include more golden undertones in the second shade, which resulted in a better match. The customer service rep recommended that I perform the shade match process under dim lighting at night time in order to avoid harsh/natural lighting that might interfere with the shade matching process. They also recommended performing the match process multiple times in order to avoid any potential process errors. The calibration and shade matching process with the app was the only downside. The app was very glitchy and crashed often so I would have to restart a few times. Bareminerals really needs to update the app to be more stable and user friendly.
Lasting power: Under normal wear, the foundation lasts about 8 hours before a touch up is necessary and before patchiness occurs. I have combo/oily skin so it does a good job controlling shine. I have not tried the foundation under more humid or hotter conditions, so I have not tested out its full capabilities. I also have acne prone skin and did not break out after 2 weeks of use.
Price: At $49, this foundation falls in the price category of higher end luxury brands and much more pricey. Considering that this is a custom product, I believe the price level is justified.
Overall, I would recommend this product and will be continuing to use the rest of the foundation I received. Personally, I like foundation, but not as much as the barePRO foundation. I do like it enough to consider using the Made2Fit foundation in my rotating supply of foundations in the future.
I was skeptical of the process on the app for matching skin tones, but did it anyway. I took the case off my phone, cleaned it, and followed the instructions for calibrating my phone camera to white paper and then to my skin. Once completed, I had a lot of trouble with the app letting me sign in and confirm the order for shipment.
Once my order went through, I waited for it to be shipped out to me, which took a very long time, but I'm sure they're processing a lot of samples for Influensters at the moment.
I finally received my foundation in the mail and I love the packaging and the foundation seems like a great formula. However, I will not be wearing this foundation, as it is about 4 shades too dark. I thought I could try blending it with a lighter foundation, but this formula has a very red/orange tint to it. It's just not going to work for my skin tone.
This product is a great idea and I'm really glad I got to try it out, because I would never have done so on my own. I just wish the foundation was even remotely close to my skin tone!
It only took about 4 days after i put my order in to receive the product. Sadly the shade I received was entirely to dark for me. So I contacted Bare Minerals and after I took the survey they provided, they furnished me with a reorder code and I have since reordered another bottle and am waiting for it to arrive. They didn't make me return the first bottle and luckily i have been able to mix it with a shade i have that is too dark so it's almost perfect.
I love the pump bottle and the silky smooth texture. I would call the coverage medium as i can still see some redness in my blimishes.
I will glad recommend this to any friends and family, if for the customer service alone.
I work a 9-5 job and have a toddler, so I need something that will stay on my face and doesn’t need a lot of touch ups. This not only stays on for 10+ hours but it keeps my blush and bronzer in place and doesn’t break down. I have combination skin. I’m dry on my cheeks and around my forehead but in my t-zone I get oily. I do have big pores and this does minimize them. They aren’t completely gone but they are minimized enough that it looks healthy and natural. The finish is a satin finish so it isn’t too matte or dewy.
The price point on this is steep. Most of bareMinerals foundations are $35 and under. This is $50. A $15 increase just for your own shade. I think a $15 increase is too expensive. I’m unsure if I would buy this after it runs out. I will for sure if they bring the price down.
Overall great foundation! If you have problems finding the right shade and have combo skin give this a try. I think it would be worth at least trying. They have a shade match guarantee.
Pros: color match is amazing, great natural coverage formula, glass bottle with a pump.
Cons: breaks apart, oil comes through if not touched up, clings to some dry patches.
I wanted this to be the perfect foundation, but unfortunately it wasn't. The app used to match your skin tone was GREAT! So easy to use, super accurate, and placing an order on my phone has never been easier. The foundation was the perfect shade and I loved that it was personalized. However, the wear time of this foundation is super meh. I have combo skin and I do not like a full coverage look so one pump is enough for me, but I found that even after setting it with powder, it began to break apart later in the day, my forehead grey kind of oily, and it clung to dry patches. This is a beautiful concept, and the skin match is so perfect on my Native American/Italian yellow toned skin, so I continue to use it, but I wouldn't say its the best.
