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

    I have fair/medium tone, doesn't matter really. This is buildable coverage, once you get used to using the special brush you will use less product. I am almost 46 and still get oily occasional breakouts, sometimes very dry, lots of fun. When it's warm out I get oily and this doesn't last as long as I'd like, but this foundation doesn't accentuate lines, so that is good,kind of difficult to apply on eyes. For aging skin it's a great option

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

      It is kind of ironic that bareminerals came up with a liquid foundation as they first came on the market as a better solution than those liquid foundations. They only had powder products, all natural. I have been using them forever! But I decided to buy this product as there has always been a slight doubt in my mind that those women with liquid foundations look more evenly skin toned. Anyways, I think it looks very natural and it seems to stay long. I like it! I like a more natural look and this foundation is not heavy! I said it is difficult to apply because it takes longer than powder but it is not a show stopper.

        Not in love with this product, but I don't dislike it either. Great coverage. Goes on easy using the recommended brush or using my fingers. I have tied this product with and without a primer. I have tried applying this product in different ways; however, with this product and other Bare Mineral foundations I have found for me that it actually makes my pores more pronounced.

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

        This foundation is super runny and feels really light on the skin. Either using fingers or a brush, it blends to a very natural and undetectable finish on the skin. It evens out the skin tone without looking like a mask. Therefore it won't cover EVERY single blemish, but that's not the point of foundation anyways. My only dilemma with this foundation would be the scent. It smells like industrial paint in my opinion. But overall, great product for everyday usage.

        I used to use MAC studio fix because I have a skin tone that is very hard to match (I'm between light medium skin and golden tan skin) but this foundation matches my skin way better than MAC, you can't even tell where I applied it and it spreads and blend so easily, all you need is a couple of drops. The coverage is decent, you can always build. HANDS DOWN, MY FAVORITE foundation ever!

            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)
