Pros

  • Blends Well
  • Goes On Smoothly
  • Good Pigmentation
  • Long-Lasting

Cons

    Best Uses

    • Dry Skin
    • Light To Medium Coverage

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

    I love this, but I have dry skin and I'd imagine that it might be bad for oily skin types? This is light coverage to start, but it can definitely be built up. It's also a little dewy for my taste, but I just tone it down with a matte setting spray. It sits better on my skin than any other foundation I've tried. It lasts most of the day even if I don't set it (but don't work out or sweat), and it feels pretty comfortable. I'll probably repurchase this!

      I apply this foundation using my oval brush along with my beauty blender to finish the look. It's great coverage and good for everyday makeup. It doesn't turn cakey, considering that I had it on for about eight hours. Overall it is a great product.

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

          I really wanted to like this and anticipated a sheer, natural coverage. This foundation is not for me. First of all, the color match is not accurate. Bare Shell should be cool, but it is quite yellow.

          I would have brought this back to try a different shade, but after observing the finish - this foundation is not for me;. I have pretty good skin for being almost 60, but Bareskin settled into and called attention to every find line and imperfection. It almost seems to create a mirroring effect - small acne scars on my skin seemed to jump into the foreground. It also feels quite tacky and cakey.

                      Pros:
                      The color! Bareminerals is one of the only brands that makes foundations yellow enough for me! The golden undertone shades are gorgeous.

                      Unfortunately, for me, that is my only Pro! I a really sad to leave a bad review because I love this brand.
                      This foundation didn't work well for me.
                      They tell you to shake well because there are no binders holding the product together. But..You need to shake the bottle a LOT before applying, which can honestly be a bit time consuming. A few shakes is not enough once you have had it for a few months. You have to shake more than you think you do. If you don't shake it enough, the product won't come out or will be too thick or too liquidy. That's not a big deal by itself - just thought I should mention.
                      They say you need 1-6 drops for your entire face. I found that brushes and sponges used with this soak up a lot of product (including the brush they make specifically for this foundation) really quickly. So you need to use around double the amount!
                      Additionally, it is pretty difficult to blend on my dry skin, and it clings to any slightly dry patch I have and makes my face look a lot more dry and dull. I thought a serum foundation would feel hydrating, but surprisingly, this feels extremely dry and tight on my skin.
                      The consistency feels extremely thin, and almost powdery dry, but with a slick filmy feeling to it...hard to describe; it is very unique.
                      I have to use much more than the suggested amount because of the brush soaking up the product, and it being difficult to blend on my face.
                      I have slightly dry (not extremely dry) skin and I wonder if it might work better for oilier skin.

                      I'm sad to say, but this was a total flop for me!

                      I normally use bare minerals powder. Now that I'm 50 i thought liquid would be better . I have never had the best complection. I need coverage, the powder still works best for combination, sensative, prone to put breaks skin.
