Rated 1 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Not as good as I had hoped..
When I first ordered this product I was really looking forward to trying it out as I had seen lots of amazing views on YouTube and so on. When I tried it for the first time I really did like it.. it was everything I needed in one foundation! But as time went by, I carried on using it but it was just extremely greasy, water-like and just had a really 'patchy' look to the finish. It says that it is indeed supposed to last all day.. however, in just one hour this foundation starts to go blotchy in areas and in general is very yellow.. which isn't what I like. I have very dry skin which is why I thought the more "fine" texture (as it was described) would have suited well to my skin preferences. In my opinion this isn't worth £27.. Im a regular user of Dior "forever" foundation which is an extra £6 but worth its price totally

I am so happy with this product. The original foundation was my go to until now. The color choices are great. I have a cooler light complexion and many foundations do not have a cooler undertone. . The warm ones look awful on my skin. My only complaint is the bottle is sometimes difficult to get product out of. I WISH YOU COULD CHANGE THE DELIVERY OF THIS GREATfoundation. The be bees in there that make noise when you shake are great but I know the liquid is in there,I know there is product in there ,just can't get it out with out struggling
Rated 2 out of 5 by rieren A little too bare skin
I really wanted to like this foundation and at first, I did. Went on really smoothly and easily and had suspiciously good coverage. I wore it for a couple of days and was confident enough to wear it to work one day. When I first put it on, my skin looked flawless. But by midday, it looked like I had absolutely no makeup on. I'm used to other foundations fading a bit as the day goes on and I know none are perfect. But nothing like this. I could see every imperfection on my face and had to put different makeup on just to make it through the day. I regret buying this and definitely wouldn't buy again.

The first time I applied bareSkin foundation I was in love. It had even coverage and a great finish. However, after using this product for awhile, I began to breakout in cystic-like acne (an issue I really haven't had problems with before). I found that when the foundation would accidentally get on my clothing, it stains very easily if not taken care of immediately with the proper precautions. The top of the bottle also began to leak and the lid no longer seals properly. I still love how this foundation goes on, stays on, and looks while it's on, but the other problems outweigh the good for me.

I wanted to love this foundation as it is so light and lovely, but it is a disaster. I would imagine if you are blessed with perfect skin, Bareskin is probably a dream for you because it is light and when first applied looks gorgeous, but within a short time of application it looks horrific. The coverage is light, at best. There is hardly any coverage and the more you put on, the worse it looks. It streaks something fierce when you apply it with a brush (I tried several great brushes and nothing worked for me), it was slightly better when I applied it with my fingers, but still not ideal. The worst part is that is sinks into your pores and it looks like you have all these little dots of foundation on your face. I do not have huge pores and this made them look enormous. Another issue is that, even when it is set with either mineral veil or the original powder foundation, it rubs off on everything - your clothes, your hands, your kid when you give them a kiss. I tried everything to get this to work, with primer, without primer, applied with a brush, without a brush, setting it with a number of different powders and it was just a big fail for me. Buyer beware if you have normal sized pores, any dry skin (it accentuates and collects in these two things), or you do not want your foundation rubbing off on everything. :-(
Rated 1 out of 5 by Makeupmads oily mess?
laid the product on its side and it started seeping oil everywhere... shook the product and tried to use but the consistency had turned to an oily mess I could not use. Maybe I just got a faulty bottle but this is very disappointing considering the cost of the product :/
Rated 2 out of 5 by Eggbutt So disappointed
I have been a Bare Minerals girl for years and years and swear by the tried and true foundation. When the brightening serum was introduced as a foundation, I knew I had to try it. Perhaps I am just too used to how the powder foundation brushes on, but I found applying this foundation serum time consuming and difficult to apply evenly. It streaked and became chalky looking. It just would not apply evenly on my skin. I thought perhaps I had neglected a step and tried again using primer and the same thing happened. I'm sure it is a lovely product, just not for me. Back to the original for me. :(

For years I had been using liquid foundation and was dead set on it. I heard about Bare Minerals powder and thought, let's see what it's about. I have not used any other beans since then. I had been debating on the liquid foundation being so happy with the powder. I finally gave it a try and am so happy with this foundation. It feels light and can be adjusted to light or full coverage. It looks great and lasts all day. Thanks for putting out products that enhance our looks and make us feel beautiful. Love it.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Great product BUT it STINKS!
I love Bare Minerals and use it almost exclusively. Was really excited to try this foundation. My only complaint is the smell.

This is a great product. I have spent lots of $$$ trying numerous liquid foundations from many top retailers. BareMinerals BareSkin provides perfect & light coverage for a flawless, beautiful look. It is an oil free product which promotes healthy, acne free skin. Coverage is long lasting meaning my blemishes and/or tired skin doesn't show even after a 10 hour work day. And with my ever changing work schedule I need something I can apply quickly and this product is perfect. Love It!
