OMG in LOVE I loveeeee it! I have super greasy skin and the foundation mixed with my starter kit works marvelous! I live in the dessert for real and this make up wont melt or get my T zone shiny.. Amazing coverage without feeling my face super heavy!! Perfect foundation if you live in the AZ area.. <3 (get the brush too! Worth it!) 19/02/2015
Don't Waste Your Time or Money I bought this product at Ulta hoping it would be the right foundation for me after trying several different kinds. I was wrong, it does not blend well, even with the Perfecting Face Brush I bought that is recommended for this foundation. Huge waste of money. Along with it not blending well at all, the bottle wastes a lot of the product anyways. I would not recommend this foundation. The brush is good, and I plan on keeping it and using it for another foundation. 19/02/2015
Not What I'd Hoped For I've been wearing Clinique foundation for a couple of years and was ready to try something new. I'd read good things about Bare Minerals so I decided to give it a try. To make sure I got the right shade, I went to my local boutique. I ended up buying the Brightening Foundation and the Mineral Veil, which is exactly what I tried on in the store. The first day that I wore it, I noticed that it wore off pretty quickly, but made my skin feel and look oily. The second day, I noticed that the makeup just wasn't blending into my skin at all-and when I applied it to my nose, there was nothing, it just made my nose look oily. In my cheek and chin areas, it was the same way, it actually made my pores more visible. After trying it for over two weeks to give my skin time to get use to it and nothing changing, I've decided it's time to return it and try something else. 16/02/2015
like product but bottle design waste a lot of the product no matter what I try I like this liquid foundation. It gives my skin a glow. My face is oily in the T zone areas moderately, but the foundation makes it more oily. I need to apply mineral veil a couple times a day. I switch off between the powder foundation and this one. It is very frustrating to see the foundation seeping out of the bottle and there is nothing you can do about it but see it go to waste. The bottle needs a new design for the amount of product that gets wasted. 16/02/2015
I love this foundation! and am confused by some of the reviews I have read about the odor, problems with the bottle, and the brush! Before finding this make-up, I used very expensive, high-end foundations because I like full coverage that does not cake, and yet gives a glow. This foundation gives me a luminous, natural look, that I love, and I have received tons of compliments since switching to it! I love the way it feels light and non-greasy on my skin, and stays put all day! The color is a perfect match for my skin tone, as well. I do not notice an odor at all. I shake the bottle gently prior to dispensing the foundation, and just lightly squeeze several drops onto my brush. I have never had a problem with it leaking at all. I wash the brush about once a week, using hand soap from a dispenser that I use in my bathroom. I roll the brush gently back and forth in a towel to dry it lightly, and then place it brush side up in a dispenser that sits on my bathroom counter. It is always dry when I am ready to use it again. I have been very happy with this foundation in every way, and am so happy that I tried it! I am over 50 and have medium toned skin with natural black hair and blue eyes, so it is hard for me to find foundations that come in the right colors for my skin and that have a pretty, natural finish that is right as your skin matures. I have taken good care of my skin throughout my life and am fortunate in that it still looks pretty good, and I do not have lines and wrinkles. This foundation is soft, pretty, and perfect. I highly recommend it for all ages and skin types. It is beautiful! 15/02/2015
Great product - terrible applicator I love the product - hate the applicator. To pay this price just to waste a lot of product is not appealing to me as a consumer. Please improve the bottle so that the product is not wasted. Very frustrating when I only need 3-4 drops, yet 6 come oozing out regardless. Not consistently, but enough to be aggravated at the $$ being thrown away. The odor is not great, but doesn't last and the aroma is not why I am buying this product. I prefer natural products with no animal ingredients or testing. Just PLEASE REDESIGN THE BOTTLE- 15/02/2015
Finally a liquid foundation for me! Any liquid foundation from other brands would cause my skin to burn especially when I would sweat. This does not! It goes on smooth and my skin looks and feels fantastic. New favorite! 13/02/2015
Amazing foundation - shame about the packaging Have used bare minerals make up for many years. Love the serum foundation but find the container very difficult to manage. Will continue to use but please please look at redesigning the packaging 13/02/2015
Blends and evens skin tone beautifully! I waited a while to try this product and to be honest I didn't really have high hopes for it, but I must say I'm really impressed! It blends and evens skin tone so easily and leaves you with a very soft and pretty airbrushed finished. I have very high standards for my makeup and like full coverage for blemishes and acne scarring, I would say this provides medium coverage at best, but with the right concealer I still feel I can achieve the coverage I'm looking for. This foundation is deffinently a keeper in my makeup collection. You will still need to touch up with powder if you have oily skin and I would say it's good for and 8 hour day, but I don't feel like it would hold up to a 16 hour day without touch ups. Hope this helps if you're thinking about trying it. I'm glad I did!! 07/02/2015
bareSkin 01 - Absolutely Perfect - at last makeup I can wear. I have very pale skin that is prone to breakouts with visible pores, yet dry at the same time (Yes it really is a nightmare) so whilst I loved the bare minerals powder foundations, I always found I had to be quite sparing to avoid having visible makeup - but this new serum is amazing! I get coverage, my pores disappear, yet it's seamless and i can't see it on my skin. I LOVE it and am going to buy the new finishing veil too - THANK YOU x 04/02/2015

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.
