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

This is a great foundation for everyday use. This is a better choice than the Bare Minerals foundation powder for minimizing fine lines. Because the coverage is light, it is not the best choice for covering large blemishes.

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

I really love the look and application of this product! I bought the tinted moisturizer brush made for bare minerals new product, rather than the one made for it (which looks like a gimmick and I was told it is difficult to clean while in ulta). I love the look, but do not touch your face! It needs to set and settle. It slides off easily but the look. And feel is unique and beautiful.

    After a visit to Ulta to buy bare minerals, this product was suggested to me. I decided to try it out. I love to have an alternate product and this fits me to a tee! It's light and very natural looking. This one is a keeper.

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

      I like that it works as a serum too! It feels very nourishing compared to foundation and BB creams. It's very moisturizing and I like that since I'm aging and my skin gets drier than it use to do. I'm 37 years old with pretty good skin (no blemishes or scars), but I need good coverage due to my uneven skin tone and big pores. I really like this foundation and plan on buying it again, especially because it has no chemicals and it's more natural than other products in the market.

        I was hesistant to try this product, but I use it every day. I also bought the Bare Minerals foundation brush, and use it to swirl the foundation on to my skin...It applies very easily this way! The only negative part about it is it needs constant shaking before each use, to mix up the liquids. The foundation is great though because it leaves my skin feeling very soft, and the light to medium coverage is perfect for that natural look. I use the Bare Minerals face primer underneath, which helps the foundation last all day!

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

        I traditionally use Bare Minerals Powder Foundation, but was looking for a liquid for the winter since my skin was drier. Liquid foundation traditionally causes me breakouts, but I trust Bare Minerals for my sensitive skin.

        This applies nicely and looks great! However, it feels (but doesn't necessarily look) greasy on my face after wearing it for a couple of hours. It also rubs off very easily.

        I will continue to use it until it is gone as it was a bit of a splurge, but will probably try something else next time.

                  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:

                  We recommend setting bareSkin using a finishing powder such as Mineral Veil to help eliminate transfer and extend its wear.

                  Yes, bareSkin Foundation is a wonderful option for you! It is designed for adult skin of all ages and all skin types, and it provides buildable coverage from sheer to full; for fullest coverage, apply six drops. This formula is humidity resistant and long wearing.

                  We recommend using bareMinerals Perfecting Face Brush (Item #: 2272522), designed specifically to use with bareSkin Foundation, for best results, though you can certainly apply using another foundation brush or makeup sponge.
