ORIGINAL SPF 15 Foundation - null
So I started using this at the end of feb and by the middle of March my skin was so bad! I hadn't changed any other cleanser routine, just my make up! I've only just found something that has started to clear them up but I've been left with some scars, I'm hoping that these will slowly start to clear up and fade!
BEST FOUNDATION EVER!!!
I suffer from eczema on my face and also being allergic to nickel I used to suffer from allergic reactions quite often. I came across this product as a shop was giving out foundation samples I figured I would just try it. As soon as I did i was getting compliments on how great my skin looked so I decided to buy this foundation. As soon as i started using it my eczema disappeared I was so shocked, my skin looks so much healthier now. I am very please with how the foundation looks and how light it as, you don't even feel it on your face. It gives a very natural looked. Not only am I glad I got it because it looks great but it always cleared up my eczema!! Which I thought would never happen! i will never change my foundation again, I love this. I cant imagine how I used to wear liquid foundation! I have recommended it to many friends and they all love it and cant stop thanking me for showing it to them! If you already haven't tried it, you must! you will never regret it!
I had tried this foundation twice before and just really hated the way it looked on my skin. I didn't understand the hype and being too lazy to mail it back, i kept it stashed with my other makeup. Lately I've been going for a more minimal/natural look that is quick to do every morning and I cannot stand liquid foundations. They never look quite right on my skin so I reached for this foundation again and have applied it with a light hand in thin layers and finally found what tone matches my skin best and I have to say I really love it. I feel as if my skin's texture is improving and it makes my face look pretty flawless without screaming that I have makeup on. Easy application, lovely finish AND improves my skin, what more could I want in foundation?
The Cadillac of Makeup
The key to applying this foundation is true to it's "how to" video; "Less is more." Can't be emphasized enough as far as I'm concerned, because if you use too much then you'll look like you are wearing way too much makeup, like clown makeup. It took me a while before I learned how to apply it correctly. Now, I've got it down and my face looks fabulous and naturally beautiful and that's saying a lot because my imperfections are plenty! Moreover, I've been battling breakouts on my chin something terrible! Since I started using this foundation everyday, no more breakouts! I haven't changed my diet or anything else in my life; so, I am sure that this foundation is the reason! I am nothing short of amazed! Also, I apply the Bare Minerals Primer original 5 minutes before I apply the foundation, which I love too! Thank you Bare Minerals!
My path to confidence.
I used to suffer from terrible acne but now it is all cleared up and i have been left with very bad scarring. I hated wearing thick foundation so much and feeling sticky and oily all the time. My friend told me to try using bare minerals foundation but I thought it would be no good because I didn't think it would cover up well enough but i was wrong! I went and tried it and i was so happy that i actually had tears! I had finally found something that made me look healthy and for the first time in years i actually felt good in myself. It covers up all my scars and dark under eyes better than anything i have ever used and i don't feel caked or oily or sticky at all, my skin feels so soft and natural, as if i am not wearing anything. I wish i could make everyone use it but i want to recommend everyone to try it because you make think it is just powder so it can't cover up well but it can cover up better than anything in the world without drying your skin or making it oily. This foundation is the best thing that has ever happened to me and has made me feel a billion times better about myself and i am so much more confident thanks to it!!! Everyone go and try it, you certainly won't regret it!!!!!!!
cakey and patchy
After reading all the glowing reviews I was really looking forward to receiving my starter kit with fairly light shade. Firstly, I am quite good with my skincare and always cleanse, tone and moisturise and exfoliate a few times per week too. This foundation went on very patchy on the first application and on my nose in particular it was very patchy and left it looking shiny and patchy at the same time. I did follow the application advice to the letter so I don't think that was the problem. I did persevere a few times and I managed to apply it ok after some practice but once it had been on for a little while, it again went patchy. Also unfortunately it didn't help that the colour I purchased was too light for me so my 7 year old daughter couldn't stop telling me how I looked like a ghost on the last occasion I wore it. Feel I wasted £50 with this product. So disappointed, was hoping to find a good replacement for my last foundation that has recently discontinued.
I LOVE the original foundation!
This product exceeded all of my expectations! I tried the original foundation and the Ready formulation, but I loved how luminescent the original foundation is. I like a "dewy" look, so I apply moisturizer and then the primer (takes a very small amount), followed by the foundation. I love how easy it is to apply and how there are not many steps; it's just so simple. What I love the most is how easy it is to customize your look. Usually, I prefer to use the warmth without the mineral veil because my skin looks better with a certain glow and a little less coverage. However, sometimes I do use the mineral veil in addition to the other products and love the full-coverage smoothness it gives my face. Also, when I am in a hurry and don't have time for eye makeup, it takes less than 5 minutes to apply my foundation, warmth and mineral veil; and in today's busy world, who could ask for more? On a side note, when I went to my favorite coffee house the other day, I noticed that the barista had flawless skin; I asked her if she was "air-brushed," and she stated that she used Bare Minerals. She looked like a porcelain doll and it was obvious that she used the Matte foundation along with mineral veil, which I confirmed, and used the tiniest bit of warmth as blush. She looked celebrity perfect. I would have taken a picture if there weren't customers in line behind me. :-) Bare Minerals is changing the face of make-up, literally, and changing lives. They have gained another "customer for life!"
Best Foundation Ever!
I bought a get started kit about three to four years ago and still have the same foundation that came with it. It lasts a long time! Love the feel on my skin. It has helped my skin. I will be buying again and recommend it to everyone!
Back to my bare minerals original :)
I have been a loyal bare minerals user for over 8 years now.....it is the only foundation in the world that gives you a flawless, airbrushed appearance without feeling like you have a mask on!!! It's lasting power is second to none,as I am a server, and after a a 12 hour shift, I simply swirl a brush on me face and my face looks perfect again!!! I had switched to the ready formula as soon as it was released...at first I liked it, gives amazing coverage, but after a little bit it would look cakey, and it highlighted my imperfections such as dry spots, large pores, wrinkles, and scarring as opposed to blurring them....I was considering switching foundation brands, but with my love of bare minerals, I couldn't bring myself to do it, and I'm soooo happy I did not switch!!! Now that I'm back to my trusty original formulation, I'm definitely back in love!!! I missed the luminosity if the original,and I missed my face feeling like it had no makeup on it....now that I'm back to my original, I know I will be a bare minerals user for life!!! And, on a side note, for those who have never tried it, DO IT!!! It's worth every penny, and bare minerals has the most amazing customer service ever!!! REUNITED AND IT FEELS SOOOO GOOD!!! :)
Proud to Wear This
I have loved this product since the first time I was introduced to it by a friend, and I can't seem to find another foundation that even half way sparks my interest. Others are trying their own versions of this because they know it's so good. Stick with the leaders of the movement!! My goal is to look natural and this allows me to do just that. I don't have to use very much--the starter kit lasted me four years. For those of you who don't wear much make-up but want it to be quality when you do--this is THE choice.
