    Just bought this product a few weeks ago, trying to lighten up the made-up look. I like it and use mineral veil over the top. Very natural looking. I also feel like it conditions your skin because it contains jojoba oil.... Good Product!

      Comments about bareMinerals bareSkin Pure Brightening Serum Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 20:

      I love bareMinerals products but this one just did not do it for me. It looks great when it's first applied but it doesn't last throughout the day. It also caused me to have ance (which I've never had) because it is oily and clogs the pores. for the price I expect something of better quality, especially from bareMinerals.

      i loved at first but realized it didnt last very longer at all and it seemed the lightest touch rubbed the foundation off. but it did pretty good for only having 27 ingredients unlike most foundations!

      I have used Bare Minerals regular foundation powder for years and decided to try the new product based on all the hype about it. It was difficult to blend and even though I used a small amount, it looked mask-like and didn't blend well. I am very disappointed and will not purchase this again. I will go back to the original foundation.

          Comments about bareMinerals bareSkin Pure Brightening Serum Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 20:

          I saw this product on TV and couldn't wait to try it. I found that although is says it is oil-free, it felt like I was brushing cooking oil on my face and it didn't absorb into my skin. It fills in the fine lines in my forehead and comes off on clothing with the slightest touch. I really wanted to like the product, but it is not for me. Another issue I found, is that the bottles leak something fierce. If you don't wipe around the mouth of the bottle, it leaks all down the side and seeps out from under the cap. Make sure you ALWAYS store the bottles bolt-upright or you will have a real mess to clean up.

              Lightweight.
              Applies well with a brush.
              Formula doesn't dry matte enough; more of a greasy finish.
              Uneven coverage; the opposite of what you expect from a "tone-correcting" product.

                I use bare minerals powder usually but in the winter my skin gets dry and patchy. Would you recommend this for that time of year or possibly a moisturizer to layer with?

                I use the powder foundation currently and have heard excellent reviews on the bareSkin. Would I still need to use mineral veil with this foundation?

                  A:

                  Using finishing powder such as Mineral Veil is completely optional! Those with oily skin may prefer to finish using Mineral Veil over bareSkin Foundation to keep skin shine-free and extend foundation's wear.

                I have some very light places on my face. I need a foundation that will even out my face to one color and look natural. Would this makeup be what I am looking for.

                  Absolutely! bareSkin Foundation features buildable sheer-to-full coverage plus natural skin brightening ingredients to promote an even complexion. Use 2 drops for sheer coverage, 4 for medium, and 6 drops for full coverage.

                  Try bareMinerals Broad Spectrum SPF 20 Concealer in Honey Bisque or bareMinerals Correcting Concealer Broad Spectrum SPF 20 in Tan 1. These products' shades are ideal for tan complexions with cool undertones like yours!

              • Q:

                Is it recommended to use Prime Time before applying this foundation, or is it meant to be used alone?

                  Primer is optional! You can certainly layer Prime Time underneath your bareSkin Foundation to extend its wear.

              • Q:

                Out of the shades i was matched with, one was too dark and yellow, the other too light. I was thinking of mixing the lighter shade with the medium shade BB Primetime. Would the foundation perform ok mixing the two products to darken it up?

                  A:

                  Yes, you can certainly "cocktail" your bareSkin Foundation with bareMinerals Prime Time BB Primer. Another option that we'd suggest is using bareMinerals Warmth All Over Face Color to set your bareSkin Foundation; it features a warm tint to deepen the shade and will help to set bareSkin for lasting wear:
