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

    I have very fair, red, rather sensitive skin. I had the chance to meet with bare minerals make up professionals at an ULTA beauty event. They matched my skin to bare shell 02 and I use the bare minerals perfecting face brush to apply this foundation. It blends into my skin so well. I do have to watch just on my nose for lines from the brush to make sure it is getting blended in well. This foundation makes my skin look absolutely flawless. I have never gotten compliments on my skin until I started using this foundation. It makes me feel so good when people compliment my skin! Because without this product, my skin is far from complementary. I do not use a primer under it, though i have a few times and it works fine either way. This is definiely a product I do not want to run out of.

          After flip flopping through drugstore makeup and some medium price range makeup, this foundation is the one. I have average to oily skin, so I thought I'd melt in the summertime South Florida weather BUT it stayed on all day.
          Perfect for layering in case you need more coverage.
          IMPORTANT NOTE: I tried using my beauty blender when applying this foundation, and it was okay. Definitely buy the bare minerals
          Perfecting Brush (recommended on the box.)

          I really like how this foundation blends so well into the skin. The product often leaks out of the bottle which wastes a lot of product. I have combo skin and I have tried to bake with this foundation it does help to tone down the oily ness of the product but there is only so much you can do.

                  We recommend trying either shade Bare Satin 06 or Bare Natural 07 in the BareMinerals bareSkin Pure Brightening Serum Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 20. If you are leaning towards a cooler undertone, we suggest trying Satin 06. Natural 07 would work best for neutral undertones.
