Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Clean, fresh coverage.
I love the fairly medium. In my 50s and this gives very nice, clean coverage. I was using medium but changed to just go a little lighter and covers well.
Rated 5 out of 5 by kristinjconnor Best foundation. Ever.
I have been using BM original foundation for nearly ten years. When I began using the foundation, my skin was uneven in color and texture. And I was prone to breakouts-even as an adult. Changing to BM has improved the condition of my skin overall and I have much fewer breakouts. I love this foundation because it looks natural, and your skin looks naturally glowing. I have tried the matte version, but for women who are not so young anymore, or who don't have naturally radiant skin, the matte version can make your skin look dull. I heard a rumor that the original foundation line may be discontinued and I hope this is not true because this is the absolute best product on the market. Please keep this product. There is nothing else like it and nothing else I want to wear.

I started using this product 4 years ago with a try-it-and-buy-it radio offer, and I have yet to find anything I like better. This foundation has great coverage, especially for a powder, and leaves even my always-breaking out skin looking glowing and healthy. I feel like years are lifted away from my face every time I use it. I doubt I'll ever switch.

Have used this foundation for years. Simply the best. Recently tried some new liquid foundations from other companies, and I was quickly reminded why I love this so much. By the end of the day with the liquids it was the same old story. It was separating and all over, and my face broke out. I will continue to only use BareMinerals mineral foundation. The original is still my absolute favorite.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Lara Great product , packaging needs improvement
Provides great coverage and lasts all day. The container lid does not come off unless you're willing to pull out the pliers resulting in wasting powder.
Rated 5 out of 5 by SophieReview Acne cover
I have very serious acne and have done since I was 13. I have been wearing Bare minerals loose foundations for many years and I swear by it.
My skin is the worst of all skin types. Its oily most of the time, but on occasion it can be dry and flakey. My Acne is disgusting and literally all over my face, chest, arms, back and neck.
The foundation has many advantages for me. Don't get me wrong, its not perfect but its miles ahead of the others out there, especially liquids.
-Gives however much coverage you want. A light dusting for a quick trip to the shops or several layers for flawless prom makeup.
-It covers ANY redness easily with the thinnest of layers.
-Spots are easy to cover but you can still see the bumps underneath. More being applied can reduce the issues with smoothness but its something you have to just accept as impossible.
-So easy to apply and to get even coverage.
-The colours are natural and you don't get nasty neck lines or dodgy patches
-With a primer, concealer, and a setting spray, it can last 24 hours and look great!
-It can go a funny texture if you sweat a lot, but a quick touch up corrects instantly
-I used to wear for school and would be perfect until lunch, and a touchup would be required. (But most foundation does, especially on skin like mine.)
-If you have clear skin, this is literally the perfect foundation
-I have barely any money and it usually lasts me 1-2 months, and I wear a lot of it because of my awful skin. Its relatively cheap.
-The bare minerals brushes are much better, but others work well enough for me as I cannot afford to replace mine.
-The best thing of all, is it never makes my spots any worse, in fact, it often seems to help them.
-It feels like you aren't wearing foundation!
-Makes clear skin feel super smooth and silky. When my acne wasn't so bad, people used to stroke my face all the time because it was so soft
-As you may have guessed, my skin is super sensitive and this soothes it and never seems to cause a breakout (Not that I would be able to tell)
-The opening from the bottom solves all the earlier problems with not being able to get the last bits out. I usually collect a few at a time and then pour them all into one pot.

When I finally ran out of my Bare Minerals Powder foundation while living in a foreign country, I tried all kinds of other options. I spent so much money trying other products only to be disappointed each and every time. Lesson learned. From now on I spend my money on what I know works beautifully with my skin and complexion. Thank you, Bare Minerals, for a truly fabulous product!

I have been using Original Foundation for 16 years. When I first tried it, my skin was in really bad condition. I had constant breakouts and a lot of redness. I tried numerous products and spent a lot of money, but all these products only made my skin condition worse. Then one day I saw your infomercial and my husband said, "Why don't you order it?" I am so glad I did. With the first application, the original foundation was like a healing balm to my sensitive skin. I was amazed at how it easy it was to use and how it covered the redness and breakouts. It felt so light on my face and looked so natural. As I continued to use it, my skin began to heal. Even now at 61 people still tell me I have beautiful skin. I am a user for life! Thanks Leslie!

This product is worth every penny! It makes me feel so beautiful when I wear it! I covers every flaw, while feeling like I am not even wearing any makeup. So in love with this product!
Rated 5 out of 5 by tiffbytiffany The Best Foundation I've ever purchased!
So, i bought this foundation originally at Sephora and the color they matched me with was terrible and also they did not SHOW me how to apply it the RIGHT way... When I visited their store in Palo Alto, CA the girls there walked me through, step by step, how to apply it - (it's all in the buffering!). Ever since, I've been using it for a week, and it's amazing how beautiful my skin looks- and NATURAL. It doesnt look like I'm wearing any make up, it feels beautiful, and glides on beautifully. I love liquid foundation as well, but this is def. something you want when it's your days off or want to give your face a break from heavy foundation.
What a great buy!
