    I only bought this product because they didn't have the product I usually use. I use the Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue and I LOVE it. They didn't have the shade I needed and recommended this product in place of it. I really don't like this it comes off on my clothes, I am breaking out all over my face which is something I don't do!!! If I could I would return it asap!!!

          I love this product almost completely. I was using Bare Minerals powder but I really prefer a liquid foundation so I decided to give this one a try. It goes on smooth and beautiful on most of my face. However, anywhere that I have even the slightest bit of dryness it just enhances it. I have exfoliated, moistened, and primed constantly trying to solve this but it still persists. Other than that the product is great!

            it doesn't crease and gives you a fantastic glow! I hope it stays the same price and never goes off the market!

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

                  I love this foundation! I was skeptical considering the very mixed reviews this foundation gets. It does not have a greasy feel it's actually quite powdery in it's finish. It does provide me perfect coverage and is buildable. I do not like "full coverage foundations. I want my skin to look like skin and this delivers. I like that it is extremely lightweight on my face. I do not want to feel like I'm wearing make up. I also appreciate that it's made with natural ingredients and that I'm doing something good for my skin.

                      A:

                      bareSkin Pure Brightening Serum Foundation is a tone-correcting liquid mineral foundation and skincare serum in one. We do suggest applying moisturizer prior to application, since it does not provide the same hydration that a moisturizer does. If you are seeking an all-in-one solution that is more similar to a BB/CC cream, we suggest the Complexion Rescue Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 30:
