ORIGINAL SPF 15 Foundation - null
The best foundation ever
This is the best foundation I have ever had; I had my make-up done at the BM counter in Debenhams Hull and chose the bare skin brightening foundation but that sunk into my pores after a few hours so changed free or charge no problem for the get started fairly light kit and I haven’t looked back! I use it with the prime time original or the BB in fair primers (both work well but I find the prime time works best with the matt and the BB gives more coverage and goes perfectly with the original).
I suffer from rosacea and acne and that is being managed by my dermatologist but I’ve found less is more in terms of products used. I’ve used the original for the past 2 months and my redness and spots have dramatically reduced, my skin is flawless and the best it’s ever looked, I don’t make a habit of wearing make-up to bed but have done and wake up looking better than I did the day before lol
I also find that it looks better as the day goes on so put on an hour or so before you go out and seal with the mineral veil as this really does prolong it. I have oily t-zone and used to have to touch up a few times through the day to combat shine, with this I don’t touch my skin at all and it looks great all day. My skins overall appearance is better since I’ve been using this.
The only downside is the brush it comes with it goes on brilliantly with but the bristles have started to fall out, so I was going to get the big version but this doesn’t have great reviews either and at £25 is a lot of money.
Just r recently purchased this and love it already goes on smoothly wonderful coverage it is my go to now!!
4 years and counting...
I've been using this foundation exclusively for 4 years now! The coverage is very buildable, lasts all day, and feels soo light on my skin. It's very nourishing and doesn't clog my pores, which has improved the clarity of my skin tremendously. I have oily skin so I do have to blot my t-zone while wearing foundation but the makeup stays put all day, regardless of how oily or sweaty I am! I do have to buy two colors at a time (fairly light and medium beige) and mix them in order to get the desired color. Wouldn't it be awesome if you could have a color custom mixed for you at their boutiques?! Anyway, I think I found my forever foundation. Thank you BM!
My favourite foundation
I have been using BM original foundation for 2years now after having my full makeup done at the Brighton boutique & falling in love straight away. Ive not used any other brand of makeup since then.
I was always prone to breakouts before using the orignal foundation but ive barely had any since using it. The thing i love the most about this product is the perfect amount of coverage it gives with only a small amount of product needed. It blends into the face very well.
I always recommend original foundation to friends & family.
Easy to use
this covers well without looking cakey almost like a second skin. I had to exchange it for the matte version which I absolutely love. I found the original a tad too "glowing" which is not a look I was striving for, of course others may like that look, it lasts almost all day. I had tried BM a long long time ago but did not like it decided to try again the color medium beige is a perfect match for me I love how it covers without settling in the lines I threw away all the other foundations in my "collection" will be using this for a long long time( in the matte version)
Move over Liquid Foundation
Back in high school, I used to wear mineral foundation but found that it wasn't giving me the coverage I wanted or needed. Ever since, I've been a fan of liquid foundation and currently use Bareskin everyday...it's the best foundation I've found so far for my skin. But with my recent purchase, I was sent a sample of the Original Mineral Foundation and decided to try it. I think I love it just as much! You can add as little or as much powder to the brush to get the coverage you want and I was pretty satisfied that it hid the slight redness to my cheeks and forehead just as well as the liquid!
Best Clean-feeling makeup
Great for sensitive skin, covers as much or as little as you like and yet feels weightless on. As a previous L'oreal mineral user, there is no comparison. It may look the same but it is not the same quality. My skin texture has improved and the blemishes from the inferior makeup have disappeared.
Found my Match
Up until 10 years ago, I was purchasing my foundation from a company that custom mixed your shade because I could not find a good match.
I have found my a perfect match for both my winter and summer skin colors, which are dramatically different. It is also important to note that the shades I require have not changed since I found my colors. Thanks BE!
I've been a faithful customer of BareMinerals for over ten years now. Since this product and out however, I've noticed that a) my skin is clearer than before, and b) I get more compliments on my skin and how it "practically glows with beauty".
Thanks for the amazing make up!
Love my BM
I really enjoy the light weight and feel of BM products. I use the original Med. and my skin looks flawless. I really appreciate natural looking beauty & BM delivers it.
My only CON is... some of the jars don't have a (turn cover) not sure what its called. lol!!
I purchase a larger Original foundation with some other powder products and its the WORST to travel with. I try to tap tap tap it back into the wholes. Not good! Hope someone who designs the jars places a turn cover on all size jars.
