Too drying

Pros

Cons

  • Settles into dry patches
  • Too drying

Best Uses

Comments about BareMinerals bareSkin Pure Brightening Serum Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 20:

I normally use Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue, which I love for its moisturizing capabilities. I decided to try this out for days when I need more coverage or want to look more made up. The pigment was great - it looked full coverage, yet easily blended into my natural skin tone. Unfortunately, it was unbelievably drying and immediately set into all my dry patches, amplifying them and giving them a cakey look. It also settled into my fine lines making me appear much older (I'm 27 and look young for my age). I had to take it off immediately to prevent further drying out of my skin. This could potentially work for during summer months when I have more oil, but for winter, I recommend skipping it if you have dry skin like me.

Comments about BareMinerals bareSkin Pure Brightening Serum Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 20:

I would give this 3.5 stars. I like that bare minerals is a more natural brand, especially that it's cruelty free! I tried this out because their powders can make skin look older. This foundation looks pretty good but it's greasy and settles into every line in your face that you didn't know you had. It can look streaky so it may take you some time to make sure it's well blended. I just use this for work so it's fine. I wear a better foundation of I'm going out somewhere.

    Comments about BareMinerals bareSkin Pure Brightening Serum Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 20:

    I had someone help me select my shade. This is a little darker than I normally would select for myself, but it a good match for me. I highly recommend the brush that BareMinerals sells next to this product. I only need to use a few drops for light/medium coverage daily. I could add more drops and have a more full coverage, but I don't like doing that. I highly recommend this product.

        Comments about BareMinerals bareSkin Pure Brightening Serum Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 20:

        I first chose bareSkin products because they used more natural materials in their products. It's not 100% organic however if you are looking for a budget friendly foundation that has more natural ingredients then try this brand. Also, it does not take a lot of this product to cover your face so it lasts for a while.

            Amazing product. I've tried all foundations from Estee Lauder, Makeup Forever, Mac, ect; But ultimately, I chose to start wearing Bare Minerals makeup because I don't break out at all when I wear their makeup, and it genuinely feels good on my skin. When this product first came out I was like - OMG A MUST HAVE b/c I had already loved many of their other powder foundations, but I was waiting for them to release a 24 hour long-lasting liquid foundation that I felt like could compete with my Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation. Then they actually created this foundation and it's heaven! About a month and a half ago I finally stopped procrastinating, walked into Ulta, found my shade in this foundation, and then went home to try it on. I pride myself in being able to blend my foundation and make it look "perfect" and this foundation makes it way too easy. First of all -- The color match was the easiest/most accurate color match I've ever experienced. I thought 100% I'd have to return it and find my right color, but when I tell you it was PERFECT. I wish I had something negative to say about it because I feel no foundation is "perfect" but this one is. It sits on top of your face without bleeding into your pores and making you look insane. Not to mention it has Vitamin C and Spf - Both extremely helpful for your skin!!! I'm only writing this review because I just ran out of my first bottle and I was looking for coupons on the Ulta site to buy my second bottle when I was like wait... let me leave a review since this foundation is actually worth talking about.

            I love the coverage and the shade range is great BUT if you have any level of oilyness in your skin you'll need to use a setting powder. now that it's winter its perfect!

            This was good but I advise you to get a powder to put over because it is very greasy/oily. Very lightweight but also sometimes takes off my mascara. If anything get the bare minerals complexion rescue, that is worth every cent to me.

              I LOVE this foundation! After needing more than bare minerals powder coverage, I went to a liquid formula with younique. I didn't love the color or coverage with that so decided to try bare minerals liquid foundation. I'm glad I stumbled onto this one! The color was perfect (I matched online) and coverage was just right (more than powder but lightweight). Anyway after a couple uses I remember thinking my skin was looking better, more even toned, etc. almost like I was wearing foundation when I wasn't. I didn't even realize that the one I bought was the brightening serum until I came back to read the description online looking for the matching brush. I was amazed and knew it was doing its job well! Thanks Bare Minerals!
