Most Helpful Positive Review My God I'm in Love!
I recently found this BarePro Glo and being a DIE HARD BAREPRO performance wear foundation addict I knew I had to try this. Funny thing is I usually perefer a matte to semi matte natural foundation finish. My expectations were high for this because the BarePro liquid foundation wears like iron and looks flawless, so I expected the same qualities from this. I'm not dissatisfied. I mixed one pump of my foundation and one small pump of the free shade together and applied as usual. This shade free, is stunning for fair skin! I'm a fair neutral and wear the shade Dawn. My foundation and skin are flawless and look amazing with these two products! The combo wears just like iron exactly as the foundation on its own. I love this so much I've already bought a backup. BAREMINERALS PLEASE NEVER STOP MAKING BAREPRO LIQUID FOUNDATION OR THIS GLOW! This is the absolute best foundation and line I've EVER used. I'm 51, so I've been around the block. These products do not sit in lines, wrinkles, it does not separate or melt, no creasing or cracking. I get the perfect color match and it looks as flawless as newly applied after 10-12 hrs. Seriously how much more can I ask for? Absolutely nothing. I highly recommend this if your looking to add a glow that you can control, tweak and make all your own. Fantastic product!
Most Helpful Critical Review Extremely Watery
I love Bare Minerals and was so excited to buy this and mix it in with my current foundation. The directions say to shake well, and shake I did but this is so watery it dilutes the foundation down to almost nothing. For comparison sake, I use Smashbox Studio Skin which is a thick formula, it took 5 pumps and less than one full pump of the Glow to turn the foundation into a watery mess. Not what I was expecting at all. I like the idea behind it and that it has so many potential uses but it's definitely not for me.
Reviewed by 40 customers Not watery, remember to shake it! Superb highlighter!!
Good for skin make up junkie from Lafayette, Louisiana
So a lot of people were complaining saying it's too watery. At first, I opened it and immediately used it, and saw it was watery, but knew that what happened is that it needed a good shake. Shaked it like the instructions say, pumped after, and it is the most amazing highlighter you'll ever see! It's also soothing and doesn't hurt my skin like most cosmetics do to my skin! Buy it, never a waste!
Perfect natural glow
Kim1971 from Alabama
I bought this several months ago, but never really used it. It is thin and watery. Recently, I've noticed my skin looking dry and "aged" so I decided to just wear a good moisturizer and a highlighter a few days each week. Well, my skin looks so much better that I wear the moisturizer, highlighter on my cheeks and mascara every day. That's it. I love the natural look, the ease and quickness of getting ready every morning now.
Not sure I would use it
Graciesmom from Charlotte NC
The product is lightweight and easy to apply (a bit more watery than expected). I'm not sure the color is right for my skin tone as it appears too white/shiny. Will be exchanging for something different.
Pretty shade but too watery!
Yaya1956 from Massachusetts
I bought this as a combo with foundation brush. It's a very pretty shade but way too thin. I dripped it everywhere whenever I tried to use it. I followed each suggestion and just didn't think it made much difference in my complexion. I'm returning it. I've uses Bare Escentuals for many years.
ERae from Charleston
This product reminds me of the 90's when glitter was everything. I wasn't prepared for the glow factor to make my face sparkle like a vampire, i didn't hate it...it just wasn't what I expected.
Jane 42 from LA, CA
This watery formulation seems best for mixing with other products rather than using for spot highlights on cheekbones and such. It's super subtle, so it's great for people who don't want to look shiny but I can't see a difference when I'm wearing it.
its natural and pretty!
chris from charlotte, nc
this was my first liquid highlight and yes i do love it! my only problem was that no matter how much i shake the bottle before pumping it, it always comes out with so much oil and less actual highlight. i have to use my finger to mix it together on the back of my hand before application. i think i'm gonna try the iconic london dew drops after this, i feel like there might be way better natural liquid highlights but its still a very pretty highlight!
chris from charlotte
i love this highlighter!! i've been using a powder highlight forever & have been wanting to try a new, natural liquid highlighter. this is IT!! even with my darker skin type, it looks natural & glowy!! i gave it four stars though because it does dry pretty quick when applying it but that's not a big deal for the outcome!!
Easy Highlighter with a Hint of Color
TK from Florida
I use this as a highlighter/blush combination in the color Joy. I apply it with my ring finger from my cheekbones to brow bones. I like a more natural look, so I pump it once and use that one pump amount for both sides. It doesn't give a super obvious look and has a dewy, radiant effect with a hint of color to it which is convenient (I don't have to apply blush now!). I'm sure if you want a more WOW effect, you could apply more layers. I would agree that it is very watery (that's the point since it's water based), so shake a few times before pumping it. Mine hasn't ever had a super creamy texture but it's worked great! I gave 4 stars only because it takes a little effort to blend well.
Amazing liquid highlighter
Netterz13 from Bay Area, CA
I have the color Whimsy and it's perfection. You do have to shake the bottle up a lot! I apply a little on my hand and then use my fingers to apply to my face. I prefer liquid highlighters over powder as I feel I have more control over where it goes. I'm in my 40's with fair/neutral skin and Whimsy over my Bare Minerals blush just perks my skin tone up. You can give it a subtle effect by applying lightly or build it up for a more glam effect. I recently saw a video where Miley Cyrus was chatting with Hailey Bieber and she said these highlighters were her fave BM product, I can understand why. They took the old 'stroke of light' cream highlighter and made it better. Hopefully they come out with more colors and finishes.
TexasGirl from Dallas, Texas
I use both the free and whimsy, depending on the time of the year, blended with my barepro liquid foundation, which I use a silicone sponge to apply. You use a minimal amount of product and it goes on nicely. Just swirl it on and it's buildable if you need it to be. I do use a primer.
not like tester in store
pam from Seattle
yes, I shook it up. I shook it up a lot. but the in store tester came out a cream. the bottle I bought comes out extremely watery, even after vigorous shaking. I feel like I've wasted so much product because of this. the color and effect is great though.
Love Bare Minerals!
julz from Las Vegas Nevada
I love just about all things Bare Minerals and this is no exception. Glides on silky smooth with a hint of high lite. Can be layered for more dramatic look . Perfect
veewatson from 84601
I don't understand the negative reviews, this is a really pretty highlight that seems to melt in the skin very easily. Maybe it depends on application and everyone has their preferences on how to apply their makeup. I like my fingers. I put it on the back of my hand and lightly touched my finger. I didn't find it watery although I shook it well. It didn't last as long as some other highlight I have, Becca for instance. it wore off in about 5 hours. It still left some micro sparkle but that sheen I prefer was gone. I wore the shade Free and it was perfect for my fair to medium skin with peachy undertones.
Really pretty but bad delivery
Marissam from chicago
The whimsy is so pretty. I love how it looks on my light to medium skin. However, the product comes out too watery no matter how much I shake the bottle and it's getting annoying. I don't know if I'll repurchase unless they fix the product. It' s a shame because it really is a lovely highlighter otherwise.
pretty, but not for me
Donna B from MA
first thing I've ever returned (well, exchanged for the bronzer, which iLOVE) in all the years I've does at Ulta. Very Pretty and feels nice, but too much glitter for me.
Ash from Minnesota
Too light and runny
Kirsty from Green Bay
Not like sample- tester in store
consistency very thin
Kate3 from undisclosed
I love all of my BareMineral products and I like the product but gave it two stars as the consistency is very thin. I know you have to shake it but no matter how long I shake it the product still is very thin. I wished it was a little thicker. Not sure if I would buy it again.
LOVE this highlighter
Imamom from New England
I love liquid blushes and foundations, especially now that I'm in my late forties, I feel as if the powders tend to sit on my skin. I can't say enough about the Barepro Glow highlighter! I have it in joy and will be ordering it in other shades for summer.
AnneMarie G from Whippany NewJersey
I mix it with my foundation in the morning & sometimes I'll put a bit right over to refresh later in the day. It's beautiful!! Love it!
Sam2 from Natrona Heights, PA.
Just received the BarePro Highlighter yesterday. I just love this product soooo much! It gives your face a beautiful glow, and it doesn't take much product at all. I also put a very small amount on the center of my lips, and it gave my lip color a nice glow. Very happy I decided to try this new highlighter, and glad I read the reviews. The reviews are very helpful to me when debating on a product. I almost forgot to say the color I chose was "free". Looks great on the upper cheek bone. Thanks for coming out with such a great product!
Schotzime from Allen, TX
Soft fragrance, smooth application, not overwhelming. Love it! First time I used it got compliments from strangers.
Definitely would by this again! Adds dew to my foundation!
Jazzercise Instructor from San Diego, CA
