I have oily skin so I tend to stay away from serums (bad past experiences) but I like bareMinerals for having a strong reputation of good production and good quality. I found I prefer more coverage but I can see myself coming back to this if I needed to throw something on for a day at the beach. It does have SPF which everyone should use daily.
I just started using this foundation when I got it as a sample and I love it! It applies beautifully and it doesn't even feel like I'm wearing makeup during the day. The coverage is on the lighter side but makes my skin look very natural and radiant. I apply it with my fingers and it goes on smoothly but it's important that you shake it well before using. The SPF in it is an added bonus.
What a great product! I just got a little sample of this and I love it! A little goes a long way. It has a very light feel to it (I guess why it's called a serum foundation). I love how clear it makes my skin look. Very natural looking, light/medium coverage. I love how there is SPF in it as well. This will be handy now that it's summer. I might have to buy the full size!! Blown away!
Defenitly worth the price! It only requires 3 little dot of fondation for a full coverage. Although it's a little more expensive then the drug store fondation, it's Worth it if you want a "light" feeling coverage. Lets say it is really important to moisture your face, because fondation don't do miracle on dry skin!
The only inconvinient I'd say is that you really Need to blend it in! A brush (for me) is not enough! O Need to blend it even more with My fingers so it doesnt look like an icing cake makeup!!
On initial application l, I loved this foundation. It was light, didn't feel like a mask, didn't sit on the skin. Looked natural, like healthy skin. Buildable coverage. I applied with the brush sold with this foundation. Made sure to shake the very well, buffed into the skin. I even bought the powder recommended by the sales lady in bareMinerals. To set the foundation with. Tried a couple different powders that I usually use, With or without the powder. Results the same. This foundation always ended up rubbing off or pulling a vanishing act. I want to have it on for a little while at least. Which Was never an issue with any other foundation I've ever used. I wanted to love this!! The makeup to make your skin healthier. But it was a major fail for me.
This has been my long time fav foundation. It is light weight, yet still such a great coverage foundation. It goes on really wet, but covers so much of your face. It doesn't leave you feeling Caked, and it really lasts throughout the day. Such an awesome foundation.
I've tried this product in shade bare satin and I like the product,it has a beautiful satin finish,I like the oily texture (my skin is little dry this time) but if you have an oily skin that maybe couldn't fit your skin or try to use compact powder to set it, easy to spread over and it doesn't dry your skin.
I love this foundation. It is not very heavy and doesn't sink into fine lines. It is very easy to apply and doesn't have any perfumes or odors. It gives enough coverage while still allowing your skin to show through. I have sensitive skin and this foundation has never caused any kind of break outs.
I used Bare Minerals powder foundation for many years...when my color (medium tan) was sold out and I ran out of my powder foundation, I tried the next thing...bare Mineral Bareskin Pure Brightening Serum Foundation.
-Glides on smoothly. It suggested that I use the bare minerals brush but I use my own stippling brush - works just as good!
-blurs out my fine lines and wrinkles ( i am 38yrs old)
-lasts all day
-Cost $36 CDN, i think this is a bit steep for me personally, but I would buy it again!
-packaging; you have to shake it before you remove the lid, however when you remove the lid, sometimes, it starts bubbling over and there's alot of wastage. I exchanged it for another bottle but it did the same thing. Sephora stated that it happens alot. Sometimes, then nothing will come out either. i'm not sure why this is but Bare Mineral needs to look into this.
This foundation is great!! I had so many doubts…even after spending the money on it, I wasn’t sure it was for me since it didn’t cover everything perfectly like I was used to. Oh my goodness though…after several months of using this foundation, my skin has never looked better. I haven’t had a breakout in months, my skin is soft, soft, hydrated, and glowy! My acne scars are going away and the foundation provides just enough coverage so that my skin now looks flawless throughout the day. I have never felt better about my skin…or the purchase. I was so worried that the makeup wouldn’t last very long and I would have spent all that money for nothing, but it’s 200% worth it. I only use 2-4 drops to cover my whole face…I just blend it in and go :) I’ve definitely been converted to a bare minerals fan! I don’t know that I’ll ever switch again…I’ve spent so much time trying to figure out my skin and now I think I’ve finally done it!
If you have sensitive, acne-prone skin like I do, I would highly recommend trying out this product. It’s about $30 a bottle and the brush costs another $30, but it is so worth it for the way my skin has reacted! I’m beyond thrilled with my purchase and that (fingers crossed!) my struggle with acne is over!
