    I'd been using Bare Minerals for a long time and when they came out with a liquid, I had no interest- until I tried it!
    Goes on well, love the brush, great coverage with very little product- had no idea how much I'd love it! New convert< 3

              I'm very picky when it comes to foundations, since I have combo type skin (dry on nose and forehead, oily on cheeks and chin), and this product literally covers my acne and stays on for long periods at one time.

                I was looking for a good-coverage makeup with a matte finish. I'm oily in the T-zone and I hate getting that shine in the middle of the day. Before midday, I had all-over shine with this product. The color was also a little too yellow for my liking. Sadly, I ended up returning the product.

                            Hello Gorgeous! As always, we recommend consulting your dermatologist whenever introducing new make up products into your regime, especially if you have specific concerns. However, we do not see any reason why this wouldn't work for you so we suggest trying it out!

                          I have oily skin and a few dry patches as well. Would this be a good foundation for me or do you recommend something else?

                          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)

                            Hello Gorgeous! Yes we always recommend using a Primer underneath your foundation to exceed the time that it lasts on your face!
