      I didn't like this at all...poor coverage, and it lay in my pores making them seem larger than they are! And the brush...more shedding than a dog in summer!

      I couldn't believe how light and wonderful it felt when I first put it on. You can control the amount of coverage easily. It's a serum base so it feels different than any other makeup I've used.

              This product is AMAZING. I'm a drugstore junkie at heart, but there's never been a drugstore foundation that lasted on me. I tried this on a whim, it being my first ever luxury foundation. The texture is AMAZING. It feels like you're rubbing nothing onto your skin. After using this my skin looked glowey and very natural. The lasting power was PHENOMINAL. I wore it for 9+ hours without a primer and I still looked great. And, I only used 4 drops for medium coverage on my entire face. I will say, though, you have to REALLY shake it up. I mean SERIOUSLY shake it A LOT, mainly because there aren't any binders keeping the product from seporating. I will NEVER use another foundation again.

              Simply wasn't all I had hoped for after reading several positive reviews. It made my face very shiny and oily. As for application, no complaints there. I really wanted a more matte finish so this one just isn't for me.

                Didn't plan on using it everyday, but it makes my skin look flawless, I wear it everyday. I like hearing people say I have such "perfect" skin. It's fast and easy to put on and one drop really is all you need to get a light coverage and hide blemishes. Very happy to have found this product. I brush mineral veil over lightly to finish.
                I haven't found anything I don't like about this product. First time I used more than one drop and it came on heavy. Didn't believe that one drop would do anything, but it does.

                This is my first BareMinerals Product and I am very happy with it. I have combination skin (oily T-zone and dry cheeks) and it does't break me out. It's like weight an buildable. I like to use it with my beauty blender because found that's the easiest way for me to apply. It doesn't stay matte all day for me even when I set it with a powder. It definitely goes from matte to dewy as the day goes on. I do like it though! I don't mind having to touch up once or twice a day.

                I wear Bare Sand 12, MUFE HD in 153 for reference.

                    This product provides buildable coverage from sheer to full. Dispense 2 drops for sheer coverage, 4 for medium, and 6 drops for full coverage. It is clinically proven to improve the appearance of dark spots, skin brightness and skin texture.

                    Bare Shell is ideal for light skin tones with cool undertones, while Bare Ivory is ideal for porcelain/fair skin tones with cool undertones. Bare Ivory is a lighter shade than Bare Shell.
