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

I really like how this makes my skin look. If you have dry skin this product would do wonders for you as it is watery and gives you a dewy look. If you have oily skin I wouldn't recommend this. I constantly get compliments on my skin when wearing this and I have to tell them, it's my makeup that makes it look good. I guess a few bad things are that it does come off rather easily..like placing my head on my paper I often find my cover up all over it, it's a little embarrassing if your laying your head on someone's chest and you look down to see your makeup all over their shirt but I keep buying it for how good it makes my skin look

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

        So I'm not too sure about this foundation, Im still really on the fence. On one hand it feels light and soft on the skin, which is nice- but the product just seems to move around and never really settle in or dry completely. The coverage is also almost non existent but you can build it up to a sheer light coverage, which can be a plus for some. Let me add I have very clear skin, so someone with any acne may have a tough time with this foundation since it stays pretty shear. You also have to use way more than two drops as it suggests. The foundation also sticks to any dry skin, even barely dry skin, and makes it look worse. I have found a facial oil before application helps with this and makes it look much nicer. (I used facial oil and the bare minerals primer to get it where I wanted it) I would say if you are looking for something sheer to light, and you have pretty good skin this is for you. Good for a beach day or non-makeup day unless you really build it up and add concealer.

            I'll be honest, the first time I bought it (also bought the brush) I hated it, it felt greasy, I looked shiny, I returned it immediately. Forgot to bring the brush so I kept that, figured I'd find a use for it. Then I got curious maybe I used too much, maybe I wore the wrong powder on top. I repurchased this, and now its my go to foundation! I set it with the illumination veil and it looks beautiful and natural with great coverage. I think it was just that I used too much (thinking I needed more product than I actually needed).

              I love that bare minerals has a fuller coverage option. I'm prone to breakouts due to my oily skin and this product doesn't agitate that. Not incredibly long lasting but it always gets the job done.

                takes a bit more time to apply due to the fact it should be used with a recomended brush. The brush gives it the even distribution to make the product look smooth. Overall I do like the product.
