        I remember the day well----a customer came in where I worked at Destination Maternity with the most perfect complexion I'd ever seen-----and when you're pregnant, sometimes that can be a problem----so when I saw her I couldn't help but complement her and she simply replied: "Bare Minerals!" (Actually this was 11 or 12 years ago and it was called Bare Essensuals at the time.) She told us she worked at that store in St. Louis Galleria and to come see her and try it out for ourselves. I did and I've never regretted it! Love the easy way it goes on without rubbing (I have mild rosacea and that's critical to me), covers everything that I don't want seen instantly. Brushing Mineral Veil over it completes my look----eyes, blush, lips and face all done in 10 minutes or less and it stays all day and evening----only reapplying lipstick after eating. Love, love, love it!

                          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

                            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 :)
