ORIGINAL SPF 15 Foundation - null
I can not believe I have lived my adult life without this little gem! its truly fab! flawless coverage, unnoticeable wear, last ages and so easy to use. I have always used the expensive brands such as lancome yves saint Laurent before as I believe them to be better than high street finds but this little pot is heaps better than any. true beauty winner
This product is fantastic; the best foundation in coverage as well as being good for your skin. I love the way that it makes my skin seem like it's naturally glowing (from the mica in the foundation); it gives a healthy, luminous look. I recommend trying it out - I know it's going to be a winner!
Tip: For medium - full natural-looking coverage, buff small amounts into the skin, going over again with more small amounts until you reach the desired coverage. When buffing it in, take your time to really buff it into your skin (even when you think there's nothing left in the brush). The more you buff it into the skin, the longer the coverage will last.
Tip: For longer, fuller coverage, use PrimeTime before foundation.
When i went into the store and the assistant colour matched me and applied it all over my face i know i wanted to buy it, it made my skin look so much better!
I dont have acne but i do get spots from time to time and usually there quite big and i thought this was just my skin type but since I've been using the product I've not had any spots! It make your skin look to much healthier, almost airbrushed and you hardly need any. The only thing that put me of it was the price but considering this will last me much longer than my others its roughy the same amount and definitely worth it. Also it feels so light and my skin doesn't feel or look oily with it on.
TIP-when i went online to match my skin tone i wasn't the same one i bought in store so go in store to check id say.
I've fallen in love with Bare Minerals. This foundation is amazing. I love how little you need and it's amazing how long it lasts. It's very natural looking but the coverage is great, and can double as a concealer in a pinch. I've tried liquid foundations since then but I can't use them as it just makes my skin feel nasty and sticky. Love this foundation.
Earlier this year I started trying to detox my cosmetic draw. I tried several foundations, but I steered clear of BM at first because I though the foundation was going to feel drying like a normal powder. I asked a friend to buy me a well known foundation from the US that's nasties free but they don't sell over here. A few weeks into using it I had a terrible breakout, so again started to look for a new nasties free foundation. After a recommendation, I decided to test the BM foundation. When the lady at the counter put the foundation on me, it did pick out some of my dry patches like normal powder. But she told me that your skin tends to get used to the 'buffing on' and that hat wouldl stop happening. She gave me a sample (as I was reluctant to buy because of this) so I could try a few times more. I did try a few times more and was really glad I stuck it out as the dry patches showing, stopped. My skin is now clearer than it has been in years, so I'm very happy. After being so impressed by the foundation I've bough the moisturiser and cleanser. I've got a long list for other BM makeup I want.
Lasted a year!
I love love LOVE this foundation! The last time I bought some was Nov 20, 2012. I have about a week's worth left. That is exactly a year! It comes down to about $2.25/month. This is an amazing product with beautiful coverage. My skin looks gorgeous, and my pores are noticeably smaller since I started using it. I like that I don't look cakey or overly made-up. I would recommend this to anyone, especially those with sensitive skin like mine and who like to get a lot of bang for your buck!
Finally a foundation I love
I love this foundation! Not only does it go on smoothly, but it covers easily! It covers my blemishes without a lot of product. I also have very sensitive skin, every time I use a liquid foundation or other powder foundations, my skin would break out terribly. I have not had any issues with this product. I use a little tinted moisturizer, let it dry then apply this and it lasts all day. When I first apply it in the morning, I can see the product but within 20 mins of putting it on, it blends right into my skin. I'm a huge fan of this product & glad i found it.
BareM. Skin Care + BareM. Makeup = GLOWING SKIN
Bare Mineral had been my skin FBI; taking down the bad guys in and on my skin! First makeup application technique I have ever enjoyed. Short and sample with great results.
My friends and family used to "look" at me but, they can definitely "see" me since I included the skin care products.
Amazingly, after evening cleansing, my kids think that I am still wearing makeup.
Bare Mineral, all you do is make my ethnic skin GLOW!
I was very skeptical — but WOW, I am sold!
I was jaded by drugstore mineral makeups. The coverage was poor. The staying power non-existent. The packaging messy.
I never expected to even try bareMinerals let alone become a fan. However after struggling with various types of foundations (unsuccessfully) and reading the hoards of positive reviews on bareMinerals, I decided to give it a try. Glad I did!
I have spider veins and a lot of redness on my cheeks and nose. In the past I have used heavy coverage foundations which felt sticky on my face. Although they provided the coverage I was looking for, it didn't last and the product would cake and sink into my pours and lines - not a pretty look.
So I am in my first day of using bareMinerals after the purchase of a Get Started Kit. Not a single bad word to say!
The application was far easier than my liquid and the coverage was surprisingly AMAZING. I started with my problem areas and did a light application on them first, then proceeded with another all over application. That pretty much did it aside using the concealer brush for a final touch up around my nose. I didn't figure that any mineral foundation could provide the coverage this product does and without that heavy sticky feeling. It's almost magic! A top that, I've been wearing it now since 9:00am and it is still holding on very strong with out any touch ups.
My starter kit came with both the Original and Matte foundations which is wonderful since it allows the user to compare without having to purchase two full size foundations before deciding. The packaging is also great with the locking lid.
All in all, if you've been tempted to try bareMinerals, but decided not too for reasons of coverage, usability, application difficulty or durability - give it another look! You might be as pleasantly surprised as I was!
It really works
I have been using this product for years now and have neglected to write a review! But I figure, since I love the product so much I might as well let others know it's worth the buy.
I use this foundation in conjunction with the Broad Spectrum Concealer in Bisque. My skin is pretty fair so I use Fairly Light all winter and in the summer I'll up it to just Light. I have gotten so many compliments. They stand out because I never received compliments on how nice my skin looked before I started using this.. a women told me my skin was "glowing" and another that my skin was "so clear". I still can't even believe it, I'm sure at the time I probably had a few blemishes too.
Since I was a young girl, I have had problems with acne. This product along with the concealer worked wonders for me and continues to. Not only is it gentle to sensitive, break out prone skin but more importantly it conceals everything! Acne, acne scars, marks, those pesky broken capillaries, under eye discoloration.. you name it. The best part about these products is that it doesn't even FEEL or LOOK like you're wearing any make up, how can you beat that.
