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

Thought I'd splurge and give it a try, it was definitely worth it but you unfortunately must use the foundation brush that is sold for it, does not work nearly as well without it but the good part is you really use way less with the brush so it will last you twice as long.

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

      I love this foundation. I'm very fair and I use the bare linen tone. At first, I didn't like the product very well because it felt too wet, and it made me look shiny. I discovered that I was just using too much of it. Seriously, a little goes a long way, two drops should do the trick. I've found that it works really well with the face perfecting brush.This foundation really does brighten my skin, and it lasts too. My only complaint, however, is the bottle it's in. The stuff comes out of a little dripper, and if you plan on traveling with this, prepare for a mess. It kind of leaks into the cap, and I feel like a lot of product gets wasted that way. Other than that, I love it!

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

          I'm such of a fan of this product! What I love so much about BareMinerals is you need very minimal amount because it blends in with your skin! I do brush a small amount of the powder foundation for fuller coverage, however, it's not needed. Just a mineral veil of a dab of your favorite matte translucent powder and you're good to go.

          I do not have any skin issues, so I'm not sure how well this is for people with troubled skin and in wanting to cover lesions or problem areas. I do have some days where I can suffer from pigmentation issues if I've gotten a zit or two, or a tiny break out, and usually, this does help with evening my skin tone when needed. However, it's nothing compared to a full blown breakout or acne. (I know, I've been through that phase of life at one point)

          I will say that this is the only make-up I can fall asleep in by accident and not have to suffer dire consequences. Also, when it's time to remove my makeup at the end of the night, it comes off quite easily. The only con to this product is that when foundation stops squeezing out of the bottle, there's actually still a lot left in the packaging. I cut it open to see for myself one day and there was still a ton of product in it! Although I really do enjoy the packaging, it needs some work. For nearly $30, I'd like to be able to use all the product I've purchased without cutting through the bottle.

                The most dramatic difference is the texture, which is liquid rather than powder. It features adjustable coverage, just like the powder foundation.

                Hi,
                Thank you for your question and being a Bare Minerals Customer. I would recommend Bare skin Perfecting Veil in Light to medium. This weightless finishing powder is formulated with light reflecting optics to help diffuse the look or appearance of fine lines, lilac plant stem cells and Vitamin C to help brighten your complexion and a special blend of minerals to absorb excess oil and balance skin texture. Its the perfect companion to Bare skin Foundation.

                The BareMinerals bareSkin Pure Brightening Serum Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 20 would be a great selection if those are your main concerns!

                If you want additional coverage, try applying the BareSkin Complete Coverage Serum concealer just in spots where you need it with a brush. It has the same type of finish as the foundation and is great for redness, undereye circles, blemishes, you name it.

                If you are looking for a concealer in the BareSkin lineup, I would recommend either Medium Golden or Tan, depending on if you want to brighten your skin or if you want to even it out any further. It is always best to be matched in person with one of our beauty experts, so if you get the chance, please stop by! I'm certain you'll find a color that you love!

                Bare Skin Pure Brightening Serum Foundation does not have a pump. This Foundation Formula has a drop spout dispenser that is specially designed for the application of this formula. This foundation requires a Shake, drop, buff application. You will shake the bottle like a paint can for a perfect mix of ingredients, drop 1-2 drops of foundation into the Perfecting Face brush reservoir and Buff onto the skin in a circular motion for a flawless finish.
