          I was excited about this product and it was great for the first couple of times I tried it but as I continue to use it it may be made me break out and was not what I thought it would be.Basically feels like water with food coloring....I will not recommend this to you anyone else and I'm disappointed with Ulta ... as I try to return it they would not return it:(

              I used the powder Bare Minerals since it came out, but it really made my 50 something skin look older because it settled into fine lines and tended to look a bit cakey. I tried Pur liquid foundation, but it was sparkly and looked awful. I got a sample of Bare Minerals liquid in Ivory and it calmed down any red, is lightweight, and best of all, isn't sparkly, "illuminating" (another word for sparkly), and looks natural. It is easy to apply. I use Mineral Veil to set it and it lasts. I haven't used it in the summer yet, so I don't know how it will hold up in heat and humidity. Finally a foundation that does not look like spackle, glitter, or paste. I love it!

                I was so excited for this liquid foundation when it came out. But it made my skin feel oily, while also drying it out, and enhancing dry patches. It also rubbed off on clothing very easily. It was nice, in theory, that a little goes a long way, so it lasted a long time.

                I bought this online so at first i was afraid of not matching my skin tone especially since I'm somewhere in the middle spectrum. I chose honey and it matches me perfectly. I also have really dry skin so I'm always concerned if foundation in general looks smooth on my skin. This foundation makes my skin look and feel hydrated and smooth all day. It can be used for long wear. I'm 100% in love with this, even the price wasn't all that bad. The only negative thing I can say is that it smelt weird going on my skin but once it dried the smell went away.

                            It says pick your shade and some are called "cool" or pink undertones and some "warm" or gold/yellow undertones. Don't believe it! They all have a lot of yellow.

                                Hi there! Have you tested the shades at your nearest ULTA store? If so, and you're still in between shades, an easy fix is choosing the lighter shade, then sheerly applying bareMinerals Warmth All Over Face Color over it until your desired color is achieved:

                                This foundation features buildable full coverage and is clinically proven to improve the appearance of dark spots, skin brightness and skin texture. To help further minimize the appearance of pores, fine lines and wrinkles, apply a primer such as bareMinerals Prime Time prior to foundation application:
