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

    I bought this product because it is one of the few liquds on the market that is silicone free. It wears well even through heat, but there is a learning curve. You need a dense brush to apply this foundation, and you don't need much product at all. My skin is mostly normal, but I get oily around my nose and I have dry patches on my chin, and despite all that my skin looked good through it all.

          I went in to look for an Albacore colored foundation (2-3 shades lighter than a fair skin) and found this product. I have spent $100's of upscale products only to find that the foundations cake on and do not match my color. I am a natural red head with very fair skin and a pink undertone, this foundation is great for everyday use, 2 drops is all it takes! I'm in love with this foundation...

            I have been using a powder foundation from Bare Minerals for a while, but wanted to try this liquid because of the higher SPF. It is awesome! Great coverage, but lightweight. It blends awesome with the suggested brush.

                              The BareMinerals bareSkin Pure Brightening Serum Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 20 would be suitable for oily skin, however we suggest using a foundation primer to help with the appearance of oil in addition to a setting veil or powder. A better suggestion may be the barePRO pressed powder foundation if you are looking for the same coverage. Our Matte foundation also helps with oil in addition to containing SPF.

                            I have been using and do like Bare Skin Pro, Silk 14. But I'm wondering if the Serum would be better than a powder for my age, 89. If so, what color and should I go a shade darker of either now that summer is approaching and my skin tans a little?
                            (I've heard that a liquid is better for aging skin. I am neither dry nor oily)

We also recommend consulting with a physician with the listed ingredients of both foundations if you are acne prone as trying any new foundation (any brand) may cause acne prone skin to have a reaction during your initial trial.

                            I am looking to buy this product but I do not know what shade to buy. I have been using Loreal True Match Lumi Foundation in the shade nude beige W3, what would be my closest match?? Thanks!

                              We recommend trying shade Bare Linen 03 in the BareMinerals bareSkin Pure Brightening Serum Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 20. We suggest a Light shade with a neutral undertone based on the color you are currently using. We also suggest using our shade finder: http://www.ulta.com/bareskin/.

                              We recommend using shade Bare Caramel 14 in the BareMinerals bareSkin Pure Brightening Serum Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 20. If you lean towards a neutral to golden undertone, try Bare Tan 13 as Bare Caramel is intended for golden undertones.
