              I was exicted about this product because I love bare minerals, but this was very disappointing! The only good thing about this product was the color...the match was flawless. But despite what it says it is NOT buildable. More than a few drops will run, clump, fade, oxidize, settle into creases. It is awful! So I used with a primer, which still did not last or give coverage. And I felt like a primer negated the product itself which claimed to have skin benefits!
              This is a waste of money.

                I started using Bare Minerals powder foundation last year during the Summer and loved the way it felt (meaning I couldn't feel it), but during the winter months, I need something that feels less drying so I tried this foundation and not only liked the way it felt, but also the way it looks. I needed a lift and this product does that.

                    I was really excited to try this new product. I like the brush to apply the foundation but the foundation itself has poor coverage and makes my skin really oily!! I will be returning to just using the powder minerals

                      • 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?

                          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:

                          bareSkin Foundation features a very fluid consistency, so although you can apply using your fingers, for best results we suggest using a makeup brush or sponge to apply. We recommend using bareMinerals Perfecting Face Brush (Item #: 2272522), designed specifically to use with bareSkin Foundation, for best results:

                          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.
