ORIGINAL SPF 15 Foundation - null
I'm all for trying new products that claim to be natural and good for your skin, so when I read constant good reviews about bareminerals foundation I wanted to try it. It's very quick and easy to apply, the coverage is easily buildable without looking cakey but on my skin it doesn't completely cover up blemishes and breakouts. One thing I love is that you don't have to use a lot at all, which is good considering the amount you get for £25.
The brushes are extremely soft but quite a few bristles fell out whilst using. My mixed opinions come from the fact it doesn't look as flawless as my other current foundation but it is definitely worth a try if you're looking for a quick, easy and more natural foundation.
I use fairly light (the colour is perfect for me with very light skin) and the full flawless application brush to apply which is just fab. It's great because you can build up as much coverage as needed and hardly use any powder . Also, you can mix in the warmth bronzer to create a darker shade if you're going out and wearing fake tan. I'd say I prefer a full coverage as I have teenage skin and it lasts AGES. The foundation feels great on the skin unlike others which can feel heavy and uncomfortable. I often apply the foundation early in the morning and it still looks the same by evening however, i think using the touch up veil helps this a lot! I use a primer under the foundation which creates an easier application and i find makes the foundation look better. I've been using this foundation for four years and I wouldn't use any other, can't reccomend enough !
New to makeup
I finally decided to buy some makeup because I began to fell that my face was a bit plain and pale. My biggest concern was that it wouldn't look natural, but after applying the original foundation, I really feel in love with it. I'm very sensitive to smells, but this foundation has no smell at all. My face never feels heavy and I often forget that I'm wearing it. Overall a great product. I'm one happy customer.
I was a little worried that I would not use this. I got the original and matte. I love both. My pores have minimized! Also, my skin feels good and the marks have disappeared. Great product.
What I've Been Searching For
I have tried all of the drug store foundations. Nothing has worked for e. I have oily skin and acne prone with scarring. Even when the products said "gentle" or "non- oily" it was not true and has done my skin more harm than good. I recently tried both the original foundation as well as the matte and i love them both! they are light weight and stays on all throughout my work day. My skin is extremely sensitive to products and i can usually feel my skin swelling up from my foundation. With either of these foundations offered by BE my skin does not swell, my skin has been significantly less oily, and it gives a better coverage than any product I have ever used. It is simple to put on and gives a natural and bright finish.
My new favorite foundation
When I first tried this foundation, I was a little wary since it made my face tingle the first day. It, however, has been amazing ever since. I am able to build my coverage without feeling like I'm caking on make-up like other foundations. I have even noticed my skin has been less dry and has broken out less since I started using this. I still get the tingles every once in a while (like if I start to break a sweat), but it's nothing unbearable. Great product that I will continue to use.
Get shade matched+use the right brush+watch the application instruction video=Amazing!
I LOVE this foundation! I was skeptical for years and wish I had tried it before. It did take a little trouble-shooting to make sure I was applying properly and had the right brush. I thought that the Matte formula would be best for me because I have such oily skin and struggle with shine but after trying Matte and Ready, I came back to this and realized it was the perfect fit, I just needed the right shade. I don't have any problems with oiliness or shine with it. I need full-coverage so I use the full coverage kabuki brush and love the results. This foundation is wonderful! Take the time to make sure you have the right shade, brush, formula and learn to put it on properly and it will be worth the time invested! So happy, wish I had been using this all along!
Used it for years
This is one of the best makeups on the market, especially at this price point. I am an older woman with sun damage and wrinkles. While nothing makes these go away, this offers awesome coverage and does not settle into the wrinkles as long as i use a good moisturizer first. i firmly believe that it is good for my skin and i appreciate the built in natural (NO chemicals) sunscreen. Whenever a friend tries it at my urging, she feels the same way. You do have to learn to use it, but if you just follow the directions you'll be a pro in no time. Dip, swirl, tap and blend, blend blend! I love it
Recently I began to have trouble with blemishes on my skin. My usual makeup simply wasn't concealing or helping solve the issue, so I decided to upgrade. I was unsure about the price of this product, but after it was applied in store I was absolutely sold! The coverage was amazing, and it barely felt like I was wearing makeup at all. The best part is that after a few weeks of using this foundation, my blemishes have cleared up a little and my skin feels great! Totally worth the money, and will be buying again.
I have very dry skin so for the past 30 years have always been drawn to rich moisturising foundation, no more, this is the most amazing foundation ever it gives me a healthy glow, it doesn't sit in all my 'laughter lines' and although I have only been using it for a couple of weeks the complimentary comments I have had have to be because of this product. I have recommended it to all my friends and family and will now never use anything else. The only problem is that I want to replace all my makeup and skin care with Bare Minerals products!
