    Switched to this from a full coverage and love it! It's lightweight and buildable to full coverage, but it takes more product than recommended to get it. Looks like my skin but better! Just wish I didn't have to shake it as much before using. If you're dry you'll need a hydrating primer.

      I seriously love this foundation. I've fallen asleep at night with my makeup on, and it didn't cause me to break out. It blends like a dream! When applying I like to you a morphe y6 brush, and use a Beaty blender to just blend out any areas that needed to be blended more. What I really Love about it though is that it can be light coverage to full. So it really has something for everyone! It's definitely worth the try if you want to try a new foundation. I added photos so you can see what it looks like on me.

        I bought this foundation for Spring/ Summer wear. I love the way it feels on your skin, almost like a primer or serum. I don't know that it stays very long because I haven't wore it a full day yet. I have a tendency to have oilier skin especially in the summertime so we will see. Fingers crossed I have found a winner!!

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

          Ick, this foundation is pretty awful. I have very dry skin in the winter, which is when I was using it. It clung to all my dry spots and highlighted them. It was also messy and did not layer well. Almost none of my makeup looked good on top of it because it would shift or smudge so easily. The only good thing it did was minimize the look of my pores slightly. Didn't cover any redness though.

          Found it easier to apply with a brush, quickly! I loved it at first, but it's became splotchy about middle ways through the day. I talked to an Ulta worker, and she told me it was my skin, not the makeup? I'm trying something different.

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

          I love this product. It's soneasy to apply. I use a cosmetic brush specially used for liquid foundation blending. This product goes on smoothly and blends well. You can use less or more as you'd like for days you want to look natural and apply more for dressing up. I've struggled with acne and clogged pores for years and this product doesn't make me break out and makes me feel so confident in myself. I will continue to purchase this product forever. I do have oily skin, at midday I use a oil blotter, but then appears just like I applied it in the morning. It comes off easy when washing face too, I'm not scrubbing hard to get makeup off. 100% recommend this product.

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

          this was recommended to me by a friend and it's honestly so upsetting. it's great for pictures if your just gonna have it on for like 30 mins, but after having it on all day it clings to dry skin and gets very cakey.

          from Huntsville, AL

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

          This has great coverage and looks beautiful all day! You have to learn to apply though. To me it seems like a very "dry liquid" It sets very quickly and once it's set, you can't really move it anymore without messing it up. It stays all day and feels so good on. I've tried it with the Too Faced primer and it seem to make the foundation break apart on my nose and made the finish blotchy. So I just use the Physician's Formula organic brightening oil elixir under it and they work well together. I also love the bare pro concealer.
