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

    Selecting the right color is a bit tough, but worth it. I bought the brush and so did my daughter and she loves both the brush and the foundation. I prefer a different brush. I'm using the bare minerals Precision Face brush. Softer application but works just as well I think. I mix two colors - a drop or two of each.
    Very happy with product. Leaves a nice glow.

      Like the foundation coverage and feel but it comes off on everything. If I touch my face at all (i.e. itch my nose) it is all over my hands and leaves a smudge on my face. If it had staying power I would love this foundation.

          Works great for everday coverage to even out skin tone. Not greasy and does well on my dry, mature skin. Lasts all day and I'm not allergic to it, which is great.

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

            I have bought foundation from drug stores all the way through high end dept.stores...some costing twice as much as this gem. I highly recommend bareskin...it is light weight, light coverage but still manages to cover imperfections, does NOT settle in wrinkles, slightly dewy, goes on like silk. Can't say enough good things about this foundation. And here's another plus...I use so little...2 drops for a regular day, 3 drops for a little additional coverage at night. At this rate the bottle will last forever.
            Love this!! Best I have ever used...

                Does not cover at all. It does feel lightweight, but it just does not look good on the skin and does not blend.

                    This foundation features buildable coverage. Apply 6 drops for full coverage of skin redness. It is hypoallergenic and well suited for sensitive skin prone to redness.

                • Q:

                  i am light skinned with freckles and medium blue eyes and i went to the ultra/bare minerals shade match link and i don't know whether to go for the Bare Porcelain-01 or the Bare Shell-02 cool tones … is there an actual noticeable difference between them, or could i get away with either because i feel like I'm not as pale as the first but not as fully ''tanned'' as the second.. so in the middle. I don't know which one to go for. Sorry this is so long but i really want to buy this but in the right shade.

                    A:

                    Porcelain-01 is ideal for the fairest skin tones with cool undertones, while Shell-02 is ideal for light skin tones with cool undertones. We suggest testing both shades at your nearest ULTA store (where we also offer complimentary shade matching!) to determine your best match:

                    A:

                    Layering your loose mineral foundation over bareSkin Foundation is completely optional! If you prefer full coverage, you can certainly use the two foundation formulas together. Please note that you can achieve full coverage with bareSkin Foundation alone by applying 6 drops with bareMinerals Perfecting Face Brush.
