Review for: Medium Beige
I have been using this foundation for 10+ years, and it has always been my go to. I'm not much on Cream/liquid foundations. They break me out and look cakey and greasy, no matter what brand/type/technique I use. This is my tried and true foundation. Coverage can be built from sheer to medium. There's a huge shade selection, but there's also some leeway if you don't have a perfect match. I prefer the original, but the matte is good as well. It's got a built in spf, and it's super quick and easy to apply. You just can't go wrong with it. The price is perfect, considering how expensive foundations can get these days. It's the perfect natural, flawless no makeup look, while making your skin look more even toned, dewy, and just all around gorgeous. Sometimes I layer it over a BB cream for better coverage and it's perfect. Highly recommend this classic foundation if you are a powder kinda gal like me!

Review for: Other
I just recently bought the product and I am not a fan. I felt even with primer my face by mid day looked cakey in some areas and thick in others- like all the oil pulled to one area. It's almost like the powder turned to liquid when I applied it on my face. And for some reason the powder never suck onto my nose. I tried using it as a setting powder to my liquid foundation and I had the same issue. Plus it didn't last all day. Very flakey on my skin, and I do not have dry skin. I know this product works for others and I wish it worked for me. I was very disappointed.

Review for: Medium Beige
Love, love, love bare minerals. I'm not a liquid foundation kind of girl and for me, this is a great solution for lightweight powder that still has amazing coverage. I would definitely recommend you go to Sephora and get tested for your shade (it's free!) they'll also be able to tell you your summer shade if it's winter or vice versa! For me I'll never buy another foundation because the color fits my skin tone so well, it's not orange in the slightest, and looks super natural!

Review for: Medium Beige
This is by far the best foundation I have used for acne-prone, oily skin. I was very skeptical of using anything on my face because I was afraid of it breaking out (and that’s just terrible). I tried out bareMinerals after researching for days about a foundation that would not break me out, keep me not looking like I just ran a marathon and smooth af. This was the foundation. It just blends into your skin. People couldn’t even tell I was wearing foundation! The only downside would be how easily it transfers, so I would recommend just not touching your face or falling asleep with it on (which you should not be doing anyway my friend because it’s bad for your skin ❤️) I highly recommend this to anyone. I think it’s an all-time favorite for any time of the year!

Because of this product, I have been going back to bareMinerals for everything. Primer, setting powder, bronzer, liquid foundation (trying the barePro soon!) and the list goes on!

Review for: Fairly Light
I really like the coverage that this foundation provides. It also provides a very natural look and there’s a good color selection. I used to use this foundation all the time, but my skin has become very dry and powders lately seem to cause my skin to become very tight and uncomfortable feeling. So while I no longer use it, I think it’s a wonderful powder foundation, probably best for people with normal to oily skin.

Amazing coverage and so easy. I recommend everyone atleast try this once and you will fall on love with it. I personally have and I now have to get my own bec this one product will have you satisfied and never going back to anything else. Powder is super easy and the fact that it covers so great makes it that much better. I never thought powder could cover the way this does.

Review for: Fairly Light
I started using this whole makeup system years ago and absolutely loved it.  The color match was perfect!  I could even sleep with this on and never break out.  It never irritated my skin, no complaints.  The price wasn't awful.  The older I got my combination skin turned more dry and as I started to age the fine lines crept in.  The powder was just too dry to continue using, it settled into my laugh lines and was so self conscious.  So for me personally it just wasn't the right fit as I got older.  But in general mineral/powder foundation is not for me.  The Bare Minerals eye shadows are gorgeous and no problems there!

I used the original for years until the matte came along. I have combo skin that leans more oily and the original foundation did not last on me; matte was much more effective. I loved it and it felt great, but I just couldn't quite get enough coverage over redness and couldn't get it to last. It works great for my mother who has dryer skin and doesn't worry about it coming off.
