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

        This product is great for my very average skin. It provides the minimal coverage I need without looking too made up. Doesn't feel caked or greasy on me and looks very natural. Creates an even skin tone without drying out my skin. I bought the brush that goes with it and that has helped with application. A very little bit goes a long way. It can settle in lines/:wrinkles over time.

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

        I liked it at first but I don't think this is made for oily skin. I initially liked how easy it was to apply and the coverage was good for how little product used. However, it slowly melted off my face throughout the day pulling my eyeliner down with it making me look like a psyco. It rubs off on clothing and whatever else very easily. I had to blot several times throughout the day.

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

        I HATE shopping for foundation, because I can never find my shade, I'm one of those "white as a wedding-dress" types and need a cool light pigment in a world full of light yellowy pigments. Bottom line, this is my dream foundation. matches my skin, covers redness, you can layer it, add translucent powder to set it and you get a BEAUTIFUL matte finish, and my skin actually feels healthier when I wear it (I don't even feel bad when I fall asleep with it on). One downside, it dries quickly and if not applied right will look cakey. Solution: apply to the back of your hand first and add with brush strategically around your face and BLEND IT FAST. Once in the habit of doing this, it isn't even a problem anymore.

        Regret buying this

        By MC

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

        I'm a huge bare minerals fan, and when this came out, i was excoted to try it. I do have oily and acne prone skin so i was worried about it, but the lady said as long as if I had primer, I should be fine. even with the primer, the makeup did start to break apart on me after a few hours, plus the 2 drops was never enougj for my face, i would have to use like 8 drops. I just wasn't happy with this product, I wouldn't recommend this to anyone.

        I was really looking forward to a full coverage foundation that wouldn't make me oily, this wasn't it. It looks great when I first apply it, but not even 2 hours later I'm greasy.

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

            I am 40 with somewhat olive complexion- slightly oily (hello Florida) and more visible pores and uneven pigmentation with age. I absolutely love how light this feels once applied. I have stayed away from liquid foundations for my whole life for the simple reason that most feel like putting thick sunblock lotion on my face, leaving my skin feeling suffocated. This may look and feel a little 'oily' out of the bottle but once blended it literally feels weightless. Using the sunblock analogy - it feels more like a dry oil spray then a thick sunblock. I use my fingers to dab spots and then blend and I have been surprised how well this lightweight foundation erases my dark spots - I also apply a light dusting of the Original Powder foundation on top - which is why I probably don't have the problem of it not staying as some other reviewers have mentioned. I believe this has a coconut oil base which actually helps control my oily skin but I have heard mixed reviews from people with acne prone skin, they either love coconut or hate it - it may depend on your individual skin sensitivities.

                  A:

                  Because this product is made with the bare minimum ingredients and formulated without oil, silicone, parabens or fragrance, it is suitable for all skin types including sensitive skin. For those with rosacea, we recommend first patch testing; apply a small amount of product to an inconspicuous area of skin to ensure you experience no irritation before applying as directed, or please consult your physician prior to use.

                  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:
