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

    I really love this product. Unfortunately, they recently redesigned the bottle with a much bigger opening. I have difficulty getting out the right amount of product. I would typically use 3 drops of the foundation for excellent coverage. With the larger bottle opening it is difficult to get a consistent amount of foundation on my brush.

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

        Overall I like this product. It is not greasy, but definitely needs the veil applied afterward because it is not at all a matte finish and later in the day my face will be shiny. I really dislike the fact that after shaking the bottle there is a lot of the product in the cap and on the outside of the "spout" of the bottle. It's a waste of very expensive product. I know others have complained about this and I wish Bare Minerals would correct this.

        SUCH A DISAPPOINTMENT

        By M. Mayhemm

        from Michigan

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

        I love Bare Minerals. I use their powders, and I have used the Complexion Rescue. I went to the store with the intention of buying another bottle of Complexion Rescue, but against my better judgement, I went with this instead. I tried applying this with a foundation brush, a beauty blender and my fingers and I could not get it to give me even coverage for the life of me. When I did put it on my skin, it felt as if it stayed wet. Like it sat on TOP on my skin. I so much as touched my face and foundation would be all over my fingers. The consistency is VERY thin, and for me, that made it difficult to work with. I have dry skin, so I thought that this would just be almost absorbed into my skin in a way, but it just sat there. My face truly felt gross. This will be going back. I wanted to give this one star, but the app wouldn't let me.

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

          I love how this foundation gives my skin a really nice glow. I like the coverage, however it is really difficult to blend, even though I use the brush they recommend to use with it. It works better with a beauty blender, in my opinion, but it still doesn't spread out super well. It is pretty oily, and I really dislike that. Ultimately, this causes me to break out. Other Bare Minerals foundations do not cause that, it is specifically this one. I am going back to the powder foundations since they work much better for me.

              Hello Jc,

              We recommend using a primer before the BareMinerals bareSkin Pure Brightening Serum Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 20. If you wish to set your foundation, we recommend using the Mineral Veil or the BareSkin Perfecting Veil.
