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

    I always use the perfecting face brush when I apply this, and it is my absolute favorite. They have so many shades whether you have more of a red or yellow tone to your skin so you can always find a perfect match for you. The foundation itself is super lightweight and easy to apply. I can do my entire face in less than 3 minutes which I love. I recommend this to everyone. I have never had a breakout from this foundation and it doesn't irritate my skin. It is definitely a 10/10 product.

      When I received the product, I tried it on half a day- didn't like it. It says for oily skins- my fave was extra oily at the end of the day. I tried it again for a full day- didn't like it. I returned it and got another foundation

            I had really high hopes for this foundation but it turned out to be a big no for me. I have acne prone skin and get dry skin due to acne products that use. This foundation settles horrible right on dry skin and on pores. This foundation looks like a cheap drug store brand.

            This product was not for me because I have very oily skin and it looks a hot, greasy mess on my face. If you have normal skin and like light to medium coverage you will probably like this product. I liked that it never caused my skin to breakout so I recommend for people with sensitive skin like me.

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

              I love how light and buildable this foundation is. I use 3 drops on light days and 6 drops when I want a full coverage look. I do recommend purchasing the brush that was designed for this foundation otherwise it doesn't go on as smoothly. However if you have dry skin this foundation is not for you. It sticks and flakes on dry spots. Luckily I only get dry patches once in a great while. I also think that this product works best with a primer/setting powder, otherwise it won't last all day. I wish Bareminerals would make a foundation in between the bareskin and the barePro which was way too heavy but lasted all day long.
