Most Helpful Positive Review Amazing Foundation
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.

Good coverage makeup base. Easy to apply.
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!

The best product for sensitive skin!

I use Barepro everyday. My skin looks great, the products blend seamlessly and always look great.
Ms. D from Texas
Years ago, I used a bareMinerals powder foundation that had a sun protection factor 20 in it. I then started using a liquid foundation/powder combo, but recently decided to simplify my life, and switched back to bareMinerals powder foundation. While I love everything else about this product, the one thing that would make it a five-star product would be an SPF of 20 or better.
Christie from Glen Burnie, MD
I did the shade match online and it was spot on. Impressed with the coverage (light to medium) and wears well through out the day.

Truly for sensitive skin
Lucy C from Portland Or
It definitely doesn't last 12 hrs and start wearing off on my super shine areas (nose and cheeks) in 2-4 hours and I need to blot. HOWEVER, I did a beauty sin and slept with my makeup on... first time in years. I only was wearing some spot concealer and this powder all over my face. Next day, I knew from experience that my face would be breaking out, clogged and super sensitive... it wasn't the case... It felt like nothing was wrong and my pillow case didn't show any marks on it. In the past I was super worried about the ingredients and products I was putting on my face everyday, but now this is the prove I needed to be sure that this product is really good for sensitive and acne prone skin like mine. Definitely will repurchase this over and over again.
I love this foundation it's the only powder one I will put o

This is my favorite powder foundation. It gives you full coverage without the cakey greasy feel of liquid foundation. It's perfect for summer time.
Irritated my skin
BB from Mobile, Alabama
Coverage was good but one of the ingredients caused me to breakout. I have tried a lot of different brands from almay, L'Oréal true match, Lancôme(liquid & pressed powder), and Clinique (liquids). These all break me out. I truly have sensitive skin.
Nice natural look
Kimberly from KANSAS City, Missouri
I love most of their products. This is by far my favorite foundation in their line. I use this as my only foundation. Quick to use and not messy. Easy to add another layer if you need more coverage. Make sure your moisturizer is absorbed in your skin before you try to apply this foundation or it will not go on smooth. Also purchase the correct brush.
