            from NC

            Comments about BareMinerals ORIGINAL Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15:

            This beyond meets my expectations. I have loved Bareminerals for ten years, but have stayed away from any of their foundations until recently, when I tried both the bare skin and complexion rescue and loved them both. I was worried that powder foundation wouldn't cover any redness or that it would look thick and cakey. But this blends into my skin so naturally and covers all redness. It doesn't do much for blemishes so when I have bad breakouts I'll stick with something else but for minor spots, I just cover before with concealer and then the powder foundation goes right over it. It just looks so perfectly creamy and natural. I use with a Bareminerals primer before so I think that's key to a good coverage. Really impressed and I will buy it again.

            • Q:

              HI I am wondering how does this original foundation compare to the bare minerals barepro performance wear foundation. I have been using a product similar to mineral powder foundation but wondering if I would like the bare pro better. Trying to compare. Thank you

                A:

                Hello Gorgeous! The Original Foundation is a loose mineral formula, while the barePRO foundation is a pressed formula, both have build-able coverage based on how much you apply. It comes down to what type of a foundation formula you prefer, loose or pressed :)

                Hello Gorgeous! It all depends on how often you use it and at what rate. It doesn't "go bad", however we would recommend replacing it after a year if it hasn't been used up.
