Q & A

bareSkin Pure Brightening Serum Foundation SPF20 - null 4.2 5 459 461
Still Undecided! I was so excited when this product came out as I have normal to dry to skin and find the powder a little caked on at times. I couldn't get a sample anywhere, so I took the plunge and bought the foundation and brush. I'm a fairly light and was advised to use Bare Linen. Though a close match, I feel jaundice once it's applied! The coverage is nowhere near as good as the original and I feel I have to apply much more than expected. After one week of wear my skin feels extremely dry and I've even broken out! This NEVER happened with the powder formulas. I will preserver but I'm not impressed so far and I fail to see how the 'serum' part comes into it as my skin has never been so bad! 20/01/2015
perfect for my very dry skin! This is the FIRST foundation EVER that has actually succeeded in making my skin as close to flawless as it can be with dry patches, i will use this everyday forever! 13/01/2015
please except one thing..... I love everything about this product except it has a bad tendancy to grab my mascara and glue it to my cheeks, even after using touch up powder over it. I use the total domination mascara and love it but i think im going to stick to your powdered foundations and concealers. 11/01/2015
Oozes Everywhere Very disappointed in this product. Very oily so it oozes everywhere. If you travel with it, expect a mess. If you just leave it on our counter, expect a mess. They say only use one drop, but since it oozes everywhere it's almost impossible to get one drop after a few uses. If you happen to get more than 1-2 drops on your applicator brush you look like snooki. It's so messy and because of its ingredients, it makes you look white in pictures. Will not buy again and I should be out soon since most of the product is all over my counter or makeup bag. 10/01/2015
Best foundation Ever! I am not usually a liquid foundation wearer, but lately the Primer plus powder has been making my skin look dry and flaky in places and it goes oily in others. I thought I'd try this when it was recommended for a "sheer" look. It's awesome! Even my husband complimented me "on the way my makeup looks." And he never notices anything. He couldn't pinpoint the difference, but said I looked "healthy and glowy." Ok, so he's no Shakespeare. Still, the sentiment was there. It stays all day and I love it. 10/01/2015
Best Liquid Foundation I've Ever Had I have had many liquid foundations over the years and most of them covered your face instead of blending in. This feels light on your face, it doesn't cake on, doesn't leave makeup lines under your jaw. It is so smooth, a little goes a long way. I don't use the brush. I use my fingers. Love it. 09/01/2015
beyond my expectations This liquid foundation lives up to all the hype I've heard and more. I have a combination of oily skin along my T-zone and normal for the rest of my face. Long story short, there is little to no powder needed, no touch up's needed, no streaking, no patchiness, and no dryness. It has very full coverage, is seamless, practically invisible against my skin, and does not budge even after an intense workout. HIGHLY recommended to those who are looking for a well formulated liquid foundation. 08/01/2015
Liquid Courage. I have never owned a liquid foundation. I've always thought they would be too heavy and because I have very sensitive skin Ive stayed away from them. My sensitive skin is what has made me a fan of the mineral foundation since I was 19. I'm almost 25 and notice my face becoming very dry in the winter so I decided to put my fears aside and try a liquid foundation from a brand I have loved for some time now. I was blown away by how lightweight the foundation was and how little product I needed to use to achieve a flawless face. One again bare minerals has created a product that has amazing results for my skin and i will continue to use this product for years to come. 05/01/2015
Amazing I had been using the ORIGINAL SPF 15 Foundation from bare minerals for just over 5 years and refused to use nothing else, that was until they released the new bareSkin Pure Brightening Serum Foundation. I absolutely love this foundation and it has become a must have for me. I bought it with the Perfecting Face Brush, however I only use this to apply the foundation to give coverage, and then use a blending sponge to blend which I feel works better for me and gives a much smoother finish. I'm in love with how the foundation feels and looks, it's so light and gives such a healthy looking glow. I wear this foundation almost everyday and I'd say a bottle lasts me just over a couple of months. As I have very fair skin I use the shade Bare Porcelain which matches perfectly. 05/01/2015
Love it! I have been eyeing this foundation since it came out but I was afraid to spend the money and then hate it. My in-laws purchased it for me for my birthday. I can honestly say it is better than I expected. I have acne and scarring and I feel like it goes on smoothly and looks beautiful. I actually still feel pretty at the end of the day. 04/01/2015

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.
