The packaging is really nice, it feels really luxurious. Having my name on the bottle makes me feel...important? It was incredible! I feel like a celebrity.
The coverage is nice, a little light, but not too bad. I would say it has buildable coverage. The only issue I have with it is the color. That’s why I knocked a star off the rating. It was probably user error, but my color is WAY too dark. I’m pretty fair, especially in the winter. And then it oxidized to a slightly darker color. This is most definitely going to be a summer color for me. I might get it again, but in my winter/early spring shade.
This foundation applies really well with a beauty blender or brush. My preferred method is to apply it with a beauty blender and then go OVER it with a brush to make sure everything is blended in flawlessly.
I would highly recommend this foundation. When you do the scanning, make sure you do it in natural lighting, and have no makeup on to make sure you get the best results!

I love the bottle the foundation comes in and the detail of the name on it, makes it very special. I only wish I could get my correct match as I don’t know what I might have done wrong when scanning my skin with the app.
bareMinerals has developed a new product and it is simply fantastic!
It's a "customized" liquid foundation.
To utilize the technology, you download an app called Bare Minerals Made 2 Fit. The app has you scan 5 areas of your face and from those 5 areas, it customized a foundation color.
You submit your order (it's $49 plus shipping) and in 7-10 days, your customized foundation shows up. Bonus is it has YOUR name on the bottle and it also says when it was mixed (so you know how old it is).
Now... onto the actual foundation.
As an avid fan of Bare Minerals, I was stoked about this new makeup. I have very pale sensitive skin and I have a lot of trouble finding a "perfect" match. It's always too white, too pink, or too blah.
I used a dime sized amount and applied with a foundation brush, buffing it into my skin.
I would say this is a medium coverage foundation, which I am also a fan of. It covered but still allowed my skin to breathe and show through. A must for me.
It wore exceptionally well and lasted a solid 8+ hours (it even misted on me at Mardi Gras and the foundation stayed put).
For the price, I think the quality is there and I find it priced correctly.
I will absolutely buy this again.
For those like me who have trouble finding a perfect pre-mixed formula, give this a try! If you're a fan of full coverage, this may not be for you, though I don't see why it's not build-able.
5 STARS from me!

getting a perfect match can be tricky
made my skin oily
I wanted to love this foundation because it is such a neat concept. To be able to use an app to get your exact skin tone and shade for a foundation is exactly what the makeup/beauty industry is missing. Unfortunately, there are some kinks to be ironed out.
The app itself looks great and is easy to use. Directions are clear, concise and I didn’t experience any issues while scanning myself. I received my customized bottle of foundation right away. Packaging is great; the glass bottle comes with a pump which is always a plus.
The foundation itself is light weight. It applies smoothly and I’d say the coverage is about light to medium. I used one full pump, dotted it all over and used a beauty sponge to blend. If you want full coverage, you will need to apply another layer where needed.
As for the color/shade, it wasn’t a perfect match but it was close enough to where I didn’t feel I needed to send it back. However, should there be an issue with that Bare Minerals will happily replace your bottle with the correct shade (provided you go through color matching via the app again). That’s a plus since it runs about $50 a pop.
I did notice it oxidized somewhat as I went about my day. I find that Bare Minerals formulations (the original powder kind) tend to do that on me as a rule. Something to consider if you don’t get an exact match. I normally have dry skin but, this formula made my T-zone oilier than usual.
All in all, it’s just ok. I love the concept but, it will be a challenge for the app to match everyone perfectly every time. Perhaps sending out two sample sized shades at first would be worth the extra expense on their end. I guess we’ll see what happens going forward.
When I received the packaged, I was amazed how true the pigmentation was. However, I wasn’t crazy about two things: the packing itself and how oily the foundation felt once on for a few hours. The top of the foundation bottle is almost like a dropper, and I was expecting that when I opened the lid to it. It was hard to put the foundation on my face to blend out, but once it was on my face - it did blend very well. However, I have oily skin and I have to be careful what types of foundation I use to not exacerbate the issue. After a few hours, this foundation left me looking more on the oily side than I care to be. A little touch-up with some powder did the trick to help minimize it, as did layering primer underneath the foundation.
All in all, impressive. Easy-to-follow instructions to receive your own customized color of foundation, quick shipping and a lot of product that goes a long way.
