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

        I love this product! I have been looking for a natural look and feel foundation for several months, and I've finally found it! Perfect light/medium coverage foundation with a dewy finish. I normally blend it with my Beautyblender and set it with a spray instead of a powder. My only complaint is that on dry skin, particularly on my nose, it settles into the dryness and emphasizes the flakiness.

        I like it but...

        By Cortney

        from Cookeville, TN

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

        I was sold on this foundation the second it came out. I have dry skin and the serum in it appealed to me. I will say that I find it settles into my pores (even with primer, and my pores aren't monstrous) which I don't like, but it leaves me feeling moisturizer and looking dewy which is so hard for me to achieve. My only major complaint with this is the packaging. I don't know if anyone else has this problem but oh my gosh I hate it. When shaking the foundation before use, I found that if I left the cap on like normal, I would open it to discover foundation all over the inside of the cap/top of the bottle. Annoying, but not the end of the world. I thought I was clever in thinking I could remove the cap, cover the top of the bottle with my finger and shake that way to avoid leakage. Sadly this proved ineffective. Seconds after removing my finger from the top of the bottle, a volcano of foundation erupted from the bottle wasting even more of the (somewhat pricy) than before. I've finished the bottle I purchased but don't plan to repurchase. If you have dry skin and the patience of a saint, I highly recommend.

                So I've been looking for a good foundation or BB cream that looks good and natural but it seems to be almost impossible! I'm hoping to find a product that matches my skin tone and looks as if I wasn't wearing it. I have normal-dry skin. If you have ANY suggestions as to what I should use (whether it be foundation, BB cream, etc) please please please let me know!! Thank you!

                Hi! I have combination skin and, living in the hot humid South, other liquid foundations that I have tried tend to settle into fine lines and melt off the rest of my face before the end of the day. Can I (should I) use the Prime Time (or any primer) before applying this bareSkin? Thanks so much! *8)
