          Comments about BareMinerals ORIGINAL Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15:

          I've used this product for years. Sometimes I have to switch brushes if I switch skin care, because what you put on underneath this, as with all foundations, completely matters.

          Recently I was getting a lot of separation and oil breakthrough with this product, even with a primer. So what I did was took the Flawless face brush, swirled it in some original mineral Veil, and applied it in circular motions to each section of my entire face. This actually smoothed out my skin out really well. Then I applied the original Foundation over that, topped with a lighter coat of the original mineral Veil (using the Flawless face brush again in circular motions) and voila! It last way longer and I do not have separation anymore, just with these two products.

          I'll currently either use the Precision face brush, which is incredible for medium to full coverage very, very fast and with very minimal blending. Or I'll use the Beautiful Finish brush, which does take me longer to build up to a medium coverage.

          I love the way it makes my skin look! It evens out the redness but looks so so natural. I use a primer and a full coverage concealer on spots under it. It does an ok job at covering acne on it's own but with a concealer it looks amazing! I set with a setting spray and it lasts nicely!

            I am 56 years old, so I don't want anything heavy or that will settle in creases. This foundation is light, and feels healthy.

              So I gave this a try because I wanted something lighter than my Estee foundation for the summer and while I did love it the first day I tried it on...the other days not so much. The first day I was like ok, I'm really liking this, it evened out my skin tone, it was nice, luminous and natural looking, but I also just stayed home and had a moviethon soo didn't get the true test. Lol The next day I wore it to work and it's abit more time consuming than you realize because getting it on in the morning took a good minute, well, anyways, i was noticing my face was looking super shiny and the powder was fading! I was like 'da heck!?!' I have a desk job so I wasn't doing anything but sitting!! And here it was slowly going away!(come back!) The same goes for the rest of the week it only lasted 4 hours tops and left me oily. I was really hoping it would last after seeing really good reviews on it, but it just wasn't for me. The search continues!
