Q & A

bareSkin Pure Brightening Serum Foundation SPF20 - null 4.1 5 524 526
Best Foundation! I bought this product as a recommendation from a friend. I was frustrated with my previous foundation because it did not look natural in daylight. I have redness and need full coverage. It covers all my redness and looks natural at same time. I also love the applicator. 21/03/2015
love/hate the only thing I STRONGLY dislike about this product is the smell. I'm not sure if my bottle was defective or what but the scent is nauseating. I can't wait to take it off at night because it makes me feel so sick throughout the day. I like the coverage and the way it feels on the skin. 20/03/2015
Love it. It has better coverage than the powder. I am 38yr. old and have some age spots it covers them completely. I bought this a couple years ago and it did smell funny. I decided to try it again, and its been improved no smell and less greasy. 20/03/2015
Terrible bottle design I have used Bare Minerals for years and love most products. However, I think this is hard to blend evenly. The major problem and the reason I will not buy it again is the bottle. The foundation gets all over the bottle,never messy and wastes a lot. Please res Design! 20/03/2015
miracle in a bottle! let me start by saying I am 25 years old and I have severe oily skin I would get big oily bumps on my face very very very aggravating. it would take at least two weeks for the oil pump to go away with another one following it .I have tried so many products and nothing has worked I have very sensitive skin, i always give a product 2 weeks to see if it would work for me even if my face breaks out and still have not found anything until now. every time I try something new my face freaks out. I am so thankful that I have tried this product because my face has changed dramatically. I always wondered about bare minerals but was never able to afford it, but I recently i purchased this product, mineralexer, and the matte powder. I am so happy! I couldn't be any more happier with this product. my face hasn't broke out since I've tried it which is unusual because my face breaks out everytime I use something different. my pores are literally, I mean literally smaller almost to where I can not see them. thank you so much for this product I will never stop using it so please never stop making it. for all the women out there who are skeptical about trying this product do yourself a favor and order it. I never knew what type of skin tone I had until I looked up how to figure out what skin tone i am. (I'm a cool tone). SO i got Bare satin, and it's a perfect match which is also unusual. I would always have to mix different shades to get as close to my skin tone as possible. now i do not have to do that. I wished we could post before and after pics.. if we can tell me how to do so and i will. I am thrilled. We all have different sensitivity what works on one person won't work for the other. I feel that this was made just for me and my sensitive skin.. you have got to try this.. it's a miracle in a bottle.. 19/03/2015
The best foundation I really didn't know how i was going to feel about this foundation as liquid foundations have always seemed too heavy on my skin, but i love this one! I got a sample (had to order something else but any excuse to buy new makeup is always appreciated) and want to order the full size one as soon as it runs out - which honestly will be a while i think! Even the sample is lasting forever! I'm in the shade Bare Linen, i use the shade light in the mineral foundation and fairly light in summer. I only use about four drops for my entire face and could probably lower than to around two if i didn't want as much coverage. BareSkin is lasting so much longer than my mineral foundation is too! Foundation usually doesn't last long on my skin but this stays well put! I didn't buy the brush to go with it but started of using my Full Flawless Face brush and smoothing it out with a sponge pad, but now i've just bought a similar brush from a different brand thats working perfectly. The best thing for me though is that BareSkin actually somehow helps my skin, it actually reduces my spots and blemishes! 19/03/2015
Love it! I absolutely love this liquid foundation, by far the best release yet. I chose the bare natural shade and it's so flawless on the face blends really well with the special face brush too. 19/03/2015
A-MAZ-ING!!! Read the mixed bag of reviews but decided to purchase anyway.... So glad I did!!, I decided that I needed a little more coverage and after using bare minerals powder for years thought I'd give this a go, I didn't get the brush, as it was out of stock anyway, and to be honest think I'm better applying it with fingertips , I only use 4 drops, and find this ample, obviously use more or less according to how much coverage you want, however, I find 4 drops perfect and not at all "cakey", you do need to make sure you've moisturised before you apply the product so it goes on smoothly. And mineral veil applied over the "T" zone seems to fix it in place. I've had so many compliments after I started using this it's incredible!! One friend was even convinced I'd had Botox... I haven't!!! My skin feels amazing in this foundation and I just love the way it looks so if you're reading the reviews, like I did, and are in two minds whether to try it, go for it, you won't regret it. Oh and one last thing the product did indeed spew out of the top of the bottle the very first time I used it, but if you bang the bottle down a few times,upright, on a hard surface then screw the lid on properly, this shouldn't happen again, it didn't for me, 18/03/2015
Natural looking medium coverage After using Bare Minerals Matte Foundation, I tried this hoping for better and more natural looking coverage. I have uneven skin tone, redness around my nose and mouth, light freckles, and acne scars. Although it does look very natural, the coverage is okay but it isn't quite what I was hoping for. They say you can build coverage, but I've found that it only adds more color, not coverage so then the color match was wrong. It leaves a sticky shiny sheen but that's remedied by setting it with Tarte Smooth Operator Clay Finishing Powder. I'll keep using this but I'll be looking for a concealer that works well with it. 18/03/2015
Very Disappointed! I love Bare Escentuals and have used the powder for years. I was looking forward to the liquid, but ended up throwing it away! The smell was was greasy (no matter how little I used)...and my skin began to breakout (never had breakouts when young)!!! 16/03/2015

Hi Sue
Personally I think fingertips are best, it goes on smoothly and you get less waste than if you used the brush, also I get better coverage, it's just like applying moisturiser you can get into all the "difficult" bits! Hope this helps...

You can buy bareMinerals in Sephora, or there is also a french website for these products. Just type in bareMinerals and when the website comes up, go the currency symbol to the top right and go to the 'France' site. Enjoy.
