I'm so disappointed in this product. It takes too long to apply. I never experienced the "building" of the product to darken the tone. Returning it.

      I love the original. I struggled for years with foundations they gave me bumps and made my skin a wreck. Once I figured out I'm actually sensitive to the persivitives in liquid I switched to bareminerals several years ago. It's flawless and I never have makeup lines. My foundation never slides off or comes off my phone or sunglasses it's been a game changer

          I love how the original powder gives me a glow from within by itself, the only thing I do have sentitive skin so I feel like when I apply it I get a little bit itchy on my jaw area and a tiny bit red but other than that I love it. use light layers of coverage at a time because if you go in with a lot of product it does tend to look cakey

                    This foundation never fails me! I've tried liquid foundation and never liked the way it sat on my skin so finding a full coverage foundation that is lightweight and healthy for my skin was priority! Honestly, this foundation has served my skin well! I highly recommend it to those looking for a natural approach to skincare. I use it 5/7 days a week and the container lasts me about 6-8 months. Very cost effective!

                        Hello! I currently use the BarePro and wear the shade Sandalwood! It matches perfectly with my skin tone. I was wondering which shade you'd recommend for the original foundation? When I went to the store they matched me with Tan Nude and that's definitely too dark for my skin tone. Thank you!
