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

    I absolutely hated this foundation. First, the smell. Sooo bad. I couldn't wait to get this off my face at the end of the day for the smell alone. The texture. Thick, cakey, my skin looked caked in powder even without any. I have dry skin, this made it look like sandpaper. I can't speak for oily skin, but for dry skin I would avoid this product.

    I love using this foundation every day because it's super light weight and does not feel cakey at all. It is a little pricey but it lasts so long! The only thing it does not cover acne very well but I just use concelar with it and it's perfect.

            I used this product with primer and mineral veil. It looks like chalk on my skin. It supposed to have a smooth application, but you can see the brush marks after I apply and it does not even cover all of the redness in my skin. Very disappointed to have paid for this product.

                      Hello Allisauce,

                      We would suggest using a primer before the BareMinerals bareSkin Pure Brightening Serum Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 20. An alternative suggestion would be to set your foundation with a powder.
