    This is my first time using this product, I have combination skin and I love a foundation that has full coverage without drying my skin out. This product is very oily and poor coverage, if you don't have the specific brush for this foundation it won't cover very well at all.

              I was looking for a foundation for my 50 something skin. The mineral powder was not doing it anymore as it was making my lines more pronounced. I did some research and bought Bare Skin. LOVE it! Used with other Bare Mineral products it lasts all day and covers very well. It feels like I have nothing on. There are a lot of negative comments but if you take your time with it and learn what will work with it you will do well. It is for those who like a more natural finish.

                I'm a big Bare Minerals fan. I actually love this product for ease of application and color. It feels like I have nothing on. Then there's the smell. Ugh! I'm very sensitive to smell and this product has a distinct chemical smell. If you do an in-store test make sure you smell the product and decide if you can live with that smell all day. The smell does not dissipate. I've had the product on for 9 hours, and I can still smell it on my skin. I'm all for not adding fragrance to a product, but I can't live with this scent. I'm returning the product.

                    I have normal to dry skin, which everyone says this foundation is meant for. I'm baffled. It never blended into my skin, was streaky, and just looked like this thin layer of product sitting on top of my face. I tried so many different brushes, moisturisers, primers, etc. the color I got was a perfect match for me which i never find, so I wanted to make it work so bad!

                        Hi there! Unfortunately we aren't familiar with other brands foundation shades. We'd recommend stopping by your local Ulta Beauty store to get professionally shade matched for the best results!
                        Otherwise based off of our shade descriptions we'd suggest the below:
                        Golden Ivory-Light skin golden tones
                        Golden Nude-Medium skin golden tones
