I tried this as an exclusive at Ulta. Iâ€™m so glad the BM store now offers it too. It makes my skin look literally flawless. My complexion looks amazingly smooth. I recommend going to a store near you to find the right match. It took only 5 minutes for me to find a match by testing out a streak on my jawline and neck. Iâ€™ve tried many many foundations and this is the first time I got a perfect color match. I had issues with powders in the past where they would get cakey or make my skin look dry or streaky. This one doesnâ€™t have that issue and it lasts all day. You can choose to dust a light layer or you can layer up for more coverage. If you are combination skin type like me, I recommend using a mattifier beforehand in the t-zone area. This will help the foundation glide on more smoothly without the caking. Iâ€™m so glad this product came out because I was using Complexion Rescueâ"¢ Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream, which is amazing, but takes a lot of effort to apply. This is much easier for my fast lifestyle. Using the new skincare system (which I was really reluctant to switch to at first) kept my complexion really smooth and clear so applying a thin layer of makeup is all that is needed. I used a regular buki brush and it does create more waste so I think Iâ€™ll try out the core coverage brush to see if itâ€™s better. I did take away a star for the talc ingredient. Otherwise, itâ€™s nearly perfect.

I can't tell you how much it breaks my heart to say this but I am disappointed not only in this foundation, but in the Bare Minerals brand for compromising their beliefs in making it. I have genuinely liked all Bare Minerals foundations and have been using them exclusively for over a decade. I gladly use strictly Bare Minerals products on all my clients and have converted 8 people to the brand. The Bare Minerals brand always meant quality ingredients, no suspicious or unnecessary ingredients, helpful protection from the sun, and coverage that is buildable and looks incredibly natural. Not only does this foundation have no SPF, but it contains talc! The Ready SPF 20 foundation proved that you can have a great-looking pressed powder foundation without sacrificing quality. The fact that this is replacing Ready makes me genuinely sad. To add insult to injury, Bare Minerals no longer makes moisturizer that contains SPF in it either, so you can't even compensate for the loss of the SPF in the foundation that way. The coverage of this is also medium to full, so if you want light coverage you're out of luck if you want a Bare Minerals pressed foundation now. The same is true if you prefer a natural finish foundation like the Ready foundation as opposed to this being more matte. The good things I can say about this foundation are it is smooth to apply and your skin's texture looks smooth with it on. The foundation does last a long time as well. On the whole though, if you are a Bare Minerals devotee like me and love the original principles the company was founded on, skip this foundation. I'll be giving this one away.

This is my favorite by far! Excellent coverage and quality. Little expensive but worth it

I love this micro mesh formula. It wears well throughout the day. Feel barely there on the skin. Does not rub off especially with Evian spray. I use the Bare Mineral Brighten Primer because it's oil-free and works well with formula. I set it with Bareskin Minerals Veil.

I love this product and been a BareMineral gal since my 20's, now I'm almost 50! It's great for an everyday look that is gentle to skin. Only thing is I wish it had sunscreen in it like the loose powder.
Doesn't cake up or settle into lines and it's great for your skin too!
Best powder foundation I've tried!

I HAVE BEEN USING BARE MINERALS FOR 15 YRS
A Grandma from Las Vegas
I started using Bare Minerals off the infomercial when they first came out and as I aged I wasn't getting the coverage I used to get with the pods so I asked an Ulta rep and he suggested the Barepro...it seems to do the trick
and doesn't "fly" as far as the pods did as I am not swirling a powder and tapping.
Love Bare Minerals

Fantastic Powder Foundation
Steph from Maryland
I'm usually an avid user of liquid foundation paired with setting powder, however; I wanted something that I could apply faster with great coverage since I'm pregnant and soon welcoming my first child. The BarePro is fantastic! The coverage is great while still looking natural, it pairs well with any bronzer, blush, etc... and I now have my new everyday makeup routine under 10 minutes. I highly recommend for anyone looking to use a powder foundation and for those looking to speed up their makeup application time.

Great all over powder
Stina from NJ
As someone who has a hard time finding powders in undertones that work for me, this has been a godsend. I've spent years just accepting that I can only use translucent powders (and they just make my face feel and occasionally look cakey). I had tried a sample of the liquid and while I didn't like the wear of it, the shade Toffee was perfect. When I learned that there was a powder with the same name, I jumped on it. It's perfect. I can wear this with some concealer and it's a perfect everyday face. And for my full glam days, I set my face for a bump in coverage and to sometimes better match my face to my chest. It's perfect.
Great, but wish it had SPF
SW from New Jersey
This product is great. As a performance wear product, it lives up to the expectations. I ride horses competitively, and this stays on and stays put even on HOT or humid days, and I'm a heavy sweater. I only took one star off because it does not have SPF protection like some of their other products. For reference I wear medium beige (12) in the original loose powder foundation, and ordered this in warm natural (12), and it works perfect.
would use it again

KGALLY from Nevada
There is absolutely a learning curve with this foundation. Definitely try applying it a few different ways and make sure your face is well-moisturized before you decide it isn't going to work for you. At first I thought I would hate it. But once I started using it with the applicator it comes with, I realized that it was just the brush application I hated. Now I am in love and it is probably my most-used foundation. Definitely give it a week or 2 to play with it and try different things before you decide you hate it.
Great product! Would buy it again!
