                  As someone with oily skin, I was told this would last all day. I have really bad skin coloring (splotchy red) and I was trying to cover it. While it does do that, it only stays on for 4-5 hours MAX. I'm a teacher and I need it to last all day. Thank goodness I can return this. I've used it four days and I'm so disappointed in how much I paid for a drug store feel.

My sister is older than me and noticed my skin and how easy was to apply. She is now a believer and daily user.

                      Did the bottle of this foundation change recently? I noticed the opening of the bottle (where the makeup comes out) looks wider now. Does this help the product to not bubble out and be wasted like the previous bottle design with the smaller opening? Thanks.

                        The BareMinerals bareSkin Pure Brightening Serum Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 20 may have changed slightly. We also recommend shaking the product with your finger covering the opening without the cap on for the best results.

                        Hello Yeyo,

                        We recommend trying either shade Bare Nude 09 or Bare Caramel 14 in the BareMinerals bareSkin Pure Brightening Serum Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 20. We suggest using shade Bare Nude 09 if you lean more towards a medium skin tone and Bare Caramel 14 if you are more of a tan skin tone. We also recommend trying the BareMinerals bareSkin Perfecting Veil as your setting powder in shade Medium.

                        Hello Frdsgrl,

                        Your best combination may be to mix shade Bare Porcelain 01 with Bare Linen 03 in the BareMinerals bareSkin Pure Brightening Serum Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 20 as it matches the undertones best in the shades you are already using. If you are looking for one shade, you may benefit from only using Bare Linen 03 as it contains neutral undertones as opposed to just cool.

                      is this foundation a dewy finish or a matte finish?

                        Hello hey laura,

                        The BareMinerals bareSkin Pure Brightening Serum Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 20 provides a naturally satin finish- therefore, it would be in the middle of dewy and also matte.
