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

I wanted to love this product. it went on smooth and felt nice on my skin. The color was a little off but it wasn't a deal breaker. Once i put on the product i noticed dry patches being very noticeable on my skin. I have normal to dry skin and I use a moisturizer and a primer but the dry patches show through soon after application. It almost dries like a powder. i returned this product.

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

    First time using foundation. I'm mixing this with a lighter shade of Youngblood liquid foundation just to match it better but it's a really great match. Goes on smooth with just a small amount. Use a primer first. I have oily skin so I have to blot around my nose eventually but stays on great and doesn't make me break out.

      This product is great for covering up blemishes and redness. Doesn't make my skin dry but does have a "cakey" finish to it, which sometimes is a little too much. A small amount can go a long way with this foundation since it is so heavy. I would recommend the foundation brush to go along with it!

          Do you use mineral veil with this
          Asked on 2/7/2016 by Jilly

          1 answer

          • Staff Expert

            A:

            Finishing with Mineral Veil is optional! You can certainly apply Mineral Veil over bareSkin Foundation to extend its wear.

          • Staff Expert

            A:

            Please use our shade finder to determine your best match:
            http://www.ulta.com/bareskin/

            All shades can be viewed and tested at your nearest Ulta Beauty store, where we offer complimentary shade matching services:
            http://www.ulta.com/ulta/stores/storelocator.jsp

            Yes, if you desire fuller coverage, you can certainly use bareSkin in conjunction with the Matte Foundation. However, please note that you can achieve full coverage using bareSkin alone by applying 6 drops! :-)

          Is this similar to a CC or BB Cream? Can I wear this alone or do you still need a moisturizer?

          • Staff Expert

            A:

            bareSkin Pure Brightening Serum Foundation is a tone-correcting liquid mineral foundation and skincare serum in one. We do suggest applying moisturizer prior to application, since it does not provide the same hydration that a moisturizer does. If you are seeking an all-in-one solution that is more similar to a BB/CC cream, we suggest the Complexion Rescue Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 30:
