ORIGINAL SPF 15 Foundation - null
Since i first bought this foundation i've found that i always come back to this.
I have dry / senstive skin so suffer with redness which this fully covers. Although its powdery to start with in the container, once warmed up this is so light and covers the skin without leaving any powdery residue or look patchy.
This with the Bareminerals Brightening Serum is the best thing i have discovered when it comes to foundations. I highley recommend! :)
THIS STUFF IS AMAZING
This foundation is absolutely amazing! I have had some skin troubles recently so when I went to the dermatologist we talked about what foundation I should be using and when I told her that I wore bareMinerals she said that was always her first recommendation for patients that are suffering with skin troubles because it doesn't contain all of the harsh ingredients that most foundations contain! So, not only is this foundation good for your skin and recommended by a doctor who specializes in clearing peoples faces but it also gives the most amazing coverage! Because of my recent term visits I started using different creams that dried out my skin a lot and before I was really oily! But this foundation looks amazing on me when I am extremely oily and when I am extremely dry! So do not shy away from this product just because it is often marketed towards people who have drier skin! I love looking flawless but I do not want to be able to feel my foundation on my face and my mom's biggest pet peeve is when she can tell that I am wearing foundation! So when finally found a foundation we can agree on with bareMinerals! I also just want to say that if you aren't sure about your shade (self matching is never really that great of an idea trust me!) go to a boutique and they are always so helpful! It is one of the only makeup stores I actually enjoy going to because I feel like they aren't trying to pressure me into buying a whole bunch of stuff that I don't need!
Have a draw full of foundtions ? Look no further!
I was a little dubious when I bought BareMinerals. I have (had) a draw full of foundations from several top leading brands. I found it difficult to match foundations in the past and the either didn't provide coverage or made me skin look yellow or orange. I have pale neutral skin tone and I have redness in the cheeks, dark circles and blemishes. I used to wear an immense amount of foundation to cover my skin which often left it worse off and affected and changed my skin to either dry or oily.
I decided enough was enough. I went to one of the counters and spoke to the ambassador. I told her my issues and she took of my existing mask of make up and showed me how to disguise my blemishes, redness and dark circle without caking my skin and heavy foundation. She recommended me to try the get started kit. After using for only a week my skin has cleared up (not completely but hey I've only been using for a week!) , the redness has toned down, my dark circles cannot be seen. my foundation looks flawless and like its my own skin.
The foundation search is over and the foundation drawer is no more.
Thank you BareMinerals. You've saved me a fortune and saved my skin too!
I've been using the original foundation for 11 years. When I first saw an infomercial for BE I thought there was no way it could work as advertised. Then a friend tried it and raved about it. So I tried it. WOW!!!! I have bad skin and even at my age (61) I still have breakouts but not as bad as before and I credit that to BE. Even with my oily skin it stays on all day, doesn't cake or crease, or turn an unpleasant color. I still thank my friend for introducing me to BE!
I've been using bare minerals original foundation for the last decade and I absolutely cannot live without it! It offers excellent coverage and is very easily applied. Quick, easy and looks flawlessly natural, not fake or painted on! I love this so much!
best make up i've used so far!
I've tried lots of make ups, and its really hard for women of color to find shades that match well. Bare Minerals is the best foundation i've used thus far and will be the last. It looks great in multiple shades, and I have tried about 4 and even when they weren't my exact match they looked great. But i was able to eventually find my match -Warm Tan which i will wear until discontinued..... hope that never happens.
this makeup gives any amazing cover and feels like I'm not wearing any make-up at all.
I have had many compliments regarding my complexion and how young my skin is looking.
Good coverage, not struck on product
I've been meaning to try this for months, so I finally purchased it and don't get me wrong its a good coverage but I found the product is glittery and doesn't last long. As soon as I start getting warm it starts to melt and go patchy.
best foundation ever!!!!!
I have really trouble some skin and this helps that so much! Keeps oil away and covers great!
Once you try bare minerals, you will never go back!
Bought this foundation about a week ago at my local store as part of the 'flawless complexion essentials' kit and it's amazing! I use the handy buki brush which is great for full coverage (if you prefer a lighter coverage simply don't use as much product or don't buff the foundation as much). I
I originally bought the ready foundation about a year ago but my skin tends to be quite oily and as the ready foundation is oil-based I had to blot so many times during the day.
My skin still tends to be oily, but I definitely don't blot as often as I used to; I tend to blot 1-2 times per day now plus before reapplying foundation throughout the day (although if I'm honest I only ever need to touch up once!)
My skin is very irritated (acne and can be quite oily) so I don't feel guilty wearing any bare minerals product as I know not only are they not harming my skin, but they're beneficial to my skin, too.
If you have similar skin to mine I would speak to the make up artist and see whether they recommend the original foundation or the original matte foundation. Personally I think I like the original even though I still blot during the day however you may prefer more of a matte look, it's all down to your personal preference!
