As for the foundation itself...
The packaging is a pretty frosted glass with a gold lid. It has a pump, and the product comes out easily.
The formula is very thin and lightweight. It doesn’t feel heavy or suffocating on the skin. I recommend using a brush to apply this foundation, then going back over it very lightly with a damp beauty blender to smooth it out. When I went straight for the beauty blender, it sucked up almost all of the product and left me with nearly nonexistent coverage. But, when I tried a brush first, it was much better. This is a very sheer-light coverage foundation, and it’s not super buildable. Perfect for that “no makeup” makeup look. It didn’t cover my big blemishes, so I definitely did have to go back in with concealer. It has a very dewy, natural finish, so if you don’t love that look, I would recommend using an all over setting powder.
So far, it hasn’t caused my sensitive skin to break out.
I can’t say that I would pay full price for it, but it’s super nice to have on hand when I want to give my skin a break and go with a more natural look, and I appreciate finally having something that matches my skin tone so well!
The made2fit app that is supposed to detect your color is pleasing to the eye. The process itself is self explanatory and easy when the app wasn't crashing. After several tries I finally was able to get my match.
The bottle is great, made of glass with a plastic pump. It was really high quality. The color was a perfect match for me! I always put 3 small squirts on my hand to slowly blend in my foundation with a brush, and I realized that three pumps was too much. You really didn't need much of this product, it goes a long ways.
This foundation is light coverage. You might need to layer if you don’t like that, which I did. I also felt like it kind of laid on top of my skin and after a couple hours I could see big splotches of foundation :(. . I, personally, didn’t like the consistency of the foundation.
By the end of the day, I could see parts where the oil my skin produced made the foundation look splotchy and just kind of gross. I also feel like after a week of using the product I was starting to develop break outs around my lips and on my chin and jawline. BOOOOOO.
I have combination skin, but I feel like this product really drew the oil out of my skin. Maybe it's better for someone without so much oil.
I'm sure someone else rocked the product better than me!
Customer service is great and they take care of any questions and matters right away. However, the skin tone scanning didn’t work well for me... the final foundation was at least 5 times darker than my natural skin color (and yes I followed instructions). My grandmother’s skin is darker than mine, and conveniently, she was looking for a new foundation and we tried it on her. We like that it goes on smoothly and spreads nicely. It really blended on her skin, but it didn’t feel heavy. I think that the bottle brings a ton of foundation for the price (my current foundation is only $10 cheaper and brings way less foundation than this one). I think that having your name on the bottle is a nice added touch (it truly makes it feel personalized).
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.
What I love the most about this foundation is that it looks so natural and gave a healthy glow to my skin. It has buildable coverage from light to medium and feels weightless even with few layers on. I loved the beautiful and glam packaging and the formula, it’s not greasy nor cakey, and its gentle to my combo skin. It is long wearing and doesn’t dry my skin out; It doesn’t make my skin breakout either.
Recommended to all skin types, but if you have a lot of acne it won’t be the perfect liquid foundation for you since it isn’t full coverage.
I had heard about this product before and was quite intrigued that there was also an app behind it! The initial camera calibration took me about 6 tries (with an iphone 7). It was frustrating because I would get closer and closer to calibration then it would reset. It would've been helpful to have some written tips in case someone was experiencing the same issues I was. Once I got past that step, the face and wrist color matches were easy to capture. I discovered you don't necessarily have to touch the camera to your face to get a skin tone match. I hovered close to my skin and the app captured it. In hindsight, I realized this might have attributed to the off color match.
The bottle has your name printed on it which is super cool and personalized. However, the product inside was WAY too dark for my skin tone. If you watch my video, you will see the difference between the foundation color I received and my regular color. It was disappointing to say the least. The only way I can salvage it is if I mix it with a lighter foundation. The coverage is also light which is generally what I stray away from when looking for a new foundation.
Final thoughts: The concept is creative but this was a miss for me. I wish there was a way to re-do color swatching steps without having to re-do the whole process. I saw some off swatches during the process that I'm pretty sure led to my final foundation color. I'd prefer to get color matched in person (at a store or beauty counter) instead.
