        This product goes in beautifully, WHEN you use the correct application brush. You really need to use the brush that is recommended. You must shake the bottle well first, as it is a serum/liquid foundation and only use ONE to TWO drops of product. The coverage is light but buildable. It has improved my skin tone! I love it and would recommend.

            It looks great when you first apply it, but as the day goes on it seems to get greasy, settle into certain areas, and make my pores really visible. I gave it about a month before I just couldn't handle the unflattering aftermath as each day went on.

              I did not think a liquid could look so natural but i really like the coverage this gives without looking heavy and caked on. Using a good brush is helpful - it doesn't have to be the Bare Minerals brush, but use a good one that can blend it in and keep it light.

                  We recommend trying shade Bare Linen 03 in the BareMinerals bareSkin Pure Brightening Serum Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 20. We suggest a Light shade with a neutral undertone based on the color you are currently using. We also suggest using our shade finder: http://www.ulta.com/bareskin/.

                  We recommend using shade Bare Caramel 14 in the BareMinerals bareSkin Pure Brightening Serum Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 20. If you lean towards a neutral to golden undertone, try Bare Tan 13 as Bare Caramel is intended for golden undertones.

                  A:

                  Hello elly,

                  The main difference between the BareMinerals Original Foundation and the BareMinerals bareSkin Pure Brightening Serum Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 20 is that the bareSkin foundation provides more spf in addition to containing Vitamin C and Lilac Plant Stem Cells which has been clinically proven to improve the appearance of dark spots, skin brightness and skin texture. The Original Foundation contains creamy minerals which diminish the appearance of imperfections without drying out skin and promote clearer, healthier-looking skin. Overall, both provide build-able coverage, but the serum will work harder in terms of improving the skin's overall tone if that is something you are looking for. We would suggest comparing ingredients to see the main difference as well.

                  Hello PSUgirl,

                  If you are looking for a shade that is slightly more tan than Bare Linen (03) in the BareMinerals bareSkin Pure Brightening Serum Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 20, we recommend trying either shade Bare Beige 08 or Bare Natural 07 depending on your undertone. Both are intended for neutral undertones like Bare Linen, but Bare Beige is slightly more golden.
