                This is my staple foundation. I use it every time I want a "no makeup" look. I put a little on my brush and buff allover my face just once. I wore this once at Disney world (which was in he mid 90's) and my makeup stayed put all day. I HAVE to have this foundation in my makeup collection.

                • 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.
