ORIGINAL SPF 15 Foundation - null
Love this product... but it has its downsides
Though I do wear this product daily, I only use it as a concealer for my nose, t-zone and my cheeks since those places are where I need the most coverage because of spots. I don't use it as a foundation because it can look a little cakey and it has too high a coverage in areas that I don't need much coverage. This foundation is supposed to be good for oily skin, but I find that by the end of a school day my nose and cheeks are shiny, but the make up itself doesn't rub off and reveal redness. Also, even though I had the foundation picked out to match my skin type by the make up artist working there, it looks very light on my skin and makes me look really pale, even though I have a slightly olive skin tone.
I would buy this again and I have recommended it to friends with a normal skin type.
OMG I love it!
This is now my favorite foundation! I use it almost everyday. It offers superb coverage, and doesn't make my skin oily.
Best coverage and clean smooth finish
I have been using this foundation since 2006! It's amazing coverage and if your looking for full it's buildable. Feels like I don't have any makeup on at all and I love the finished smooth look.
Best coverup I have ever used
I've been using the original foundation spectrum for about 3 years and it has been the best decision I've made! I've always had the worst acne since I was 10 & I'm 18 now and ever since I started using this my acne has reduced significantly! Also I have very dry skin so this helps!
Finally ran out
I've been a BE user since 2010 and I use all of BE's foundations, depending on my mood, my skins mood, and how fast I need to be ready. I like to purchase kits because they come with original foundation and I always have some. To my surprise, I ran out for the first time in years. So since I was going to be in the area of a store I was off to the store for the first time since 2010. I wish there were a boutique closer to where I live.
Easy and awesome!
I don't normally wear makeup because I never liked liquid makeup. I walked into an actual Bare Minerals store and they gave me a free demonstration. I was so amazed by how flawless my skin looked compared to before...skin irritation redness, sun damaged skin discoloration. It didn't hide everything but just made it look a lot better. Bonus: it's all powder! It is so easy to apply and so now I use it every day!
For a while now I have been trying out lots of different foundations, until just after Christmas I found the bare minerals foundation. I would never look back its amazing. The woman in the shop was so helpful and managed to help me discover the perfect colour. My skin doesn't look orange and I don't have a Line at the side of my face. My skin just looks so natural.
Absolutely Amazing Foundation
I have always used the cheap foundations which I found gave me spots & clogged up skin. After using the Original SPF 15 Foundation I will never go back to the other products. Since I purchased this foundation I have bought all bareMinerals skin care products and lots of there other make-up. Highly recommend! Absolutely Amazing!!
Best foundation out there!
I have noticed a BIG difference in my skin after using Bare Minerals makeup for almost a year! I started using this foundation and then over time ordered makeup for everything I need. The only thing I haven't tried is the mascara! This foundation is so light, it feels like I'm not wearing any makeup! It looks so natural but covers my "imperfections" flawlessly! Pair this with the must have Tinted Moisturizing Gel and your face will thank you!! Plus this product also makes you lose 10 pounds! -hah, kidding! But really, if you are questioning using this product then trust a person you don't know and get it!
*I am still using the same container of foundation that I bought almost a year ago!! This will last forever!
**this product will not make you lose weight...you don't need to anyway, you are beautiful and you only get one body so love it! Plus, you are buying the best makeup out there and you will look awesome! Rock it, girl! ;)
I bought this as I wanted to allow my skin to breath more as I was having break out issues at the time. I was sick of having that caked on feel that I get with liquid foundations. This really was a breath of fresh air for my skin. I am fair with a fairly neutral undertone with combination/ dry skin and bought the colour 'fairly light' which was perfect. When applying this the first time I loved how lightweight the feel was but wasn't sure about its coverage, as I felt I needed more. However on my second attempt I used a medium sized powder brush to apply and the result was amazing. Flawless healthy looking skin with a 'no make up' affect. I didn't even need concealer to cover blemishes (which is unheard of with me) as the coverage was THAT good. A tip I would give with this particular product is to build the coverage, start with a little and build it up to create the most natural effect. I would also recommend to exfoliate and moisturise before using this as due to it being powder based it can cling to dry skin.
My only fault that I could say would be that it can appear to wear off and look cakey at the end of the day. To avoid this I would not apply too much product in oily areas of the face, and would try and avoid powdering over the top too heavily.
It is a must buy for someone that hates feeling too 'made up' as it feels so lightweight and as if you are wearing no make up at all. It offers fabulous coverage and allows problem skin to breath.
Hope this helps some of you who are sitting on the fence with this product xx
