Most Helpful Positive Review Very nice!
I have been using this for about two weeks now, and I'm so pleased that I got it. I normally wear the Original foundation, and have for many years. I used the gel Complexion Rescue, and really didn't care for it because of the consistency and coverage. But this stick, is so quick and easy. I just use my fingers to apply. It feels rather cool on application and I like the coverage, plus it has the spf 25, saving me a step! I'm fair skinned with pink cool undertones, I have the "Opal" and it matches well.
Most Helpful Critical Review Bad ingredients BM
I have only looked at the ingredients at a glance. It has parrafin, edta and bht! To name a few. BM contains minerals and some good ingredients but they are including all the bad stuff too since being taken over by sheseido. If you are using BM for their natural mineral 'skin loving' ingredients, stick to their original products.

I have never had breakouts until using this product..it was disappointing because I really loved the coverage and moisture
It was ehhh
kiley from GA
I was so excited to try it and it was okay. The foundation sat on top of my skin and made it look like I had a lot of texture on my skin. It also made my pores huge. I rather have my colourpop pretty fresh tinted moisturizer than this.
nice finish, broke me out
tangor3d from chicago
this is a light coverage foundation that feels lightweight. the shade i picked matches my skin tone fairly well. i really like the natural finish, but i'm pretty sure it broke me out. i have sensitive, dry, and dehydrated skin. so those with sensitive skin might want to avoid this foundation.
Summer from San Jose
I've been looking for a good, lightweight foundation for awhile now and haven't found one for years. However, this foundation is amazing and is now my go-to! It's super light weight with great coverage. It's blends really well and is very buildable. Ends up looking super natural too! Will be buying this again and recommending it to others!
Will always be in my makeup repertoire!

I have very dry sensitive skin and feel like I found the holy grail! Redness is gone instantly and my complexion looks so natural. I am hooked on this foundation. Lasts a long time and I use it daily.
Love Love Love!!!

Best foundation I found never used a stick before but I'm loving it !💓💓 no clumps nothing glides and melts on your skin love it worth the money 🤩
I love this foundation
Val from Las Vegas
I use this foundation every day. It's so easy to put on, and it stays the whole day. It also looks so natural! For the people saying that it's greasy, I just put a little bit of translucent powder and it goes so beautiful.

I have previously been using the complexion rescue gel but I ran out and saw this product so I wanted to try it! I've been using it for a couple of days now and I love it! It is very lightweight and similar to the complexion rescue gel, except it is less dewy than the gel. I found that the complexion rescue gel made my face shiny and oily at times and this has not done that so far! The only downside I've found is that it has taken me a little bit to try and figure out the best way to apply it. Currently I am using a beauty blender and that seems to be the best way to blend it in so far.

It's good when you first put it on, but after a while it starts to look super greasy and I have to take it off. It also comes off if you even touch it slightly. I like the stick form and it applies well, but it doesn't hold up.
not bad but not great
kaylee from california
the product is a little hard to blend if you're not extremely quick, it's not bad but it does kinda oxidize and i have yellow undertones and this is very orange. not bad for the price, you get a good amount of product but wouldn't buy again.
So happy I found this!
Jk from Wa
I've used the complexion rescue gel for years and now that I'm 42 I wanted a little more coverage around my nose and cheeks. I started to look around for a new foundation and nothing compares to complexion rescue. Then I discovered this! I use my normal complexion rescue gel then add a few dots of this where I want more coverage and blend with my fingers and it looks perfect! It's so creamy and blends so well I love it. I tried wearing the stick foundation alone and it is also great, but a little too matte for me. I like it a little dewier so I mix the two.
Lauren from MA
I was skeptical at first because I don't usually like foundations with SPF because they make my face feel greasy but this doesn't do that at all. I use Too Faced Primed and Poreless with this foundation and it doesn't get greasy and stays on all day. I've also found that my blush and contour look better on this foundation
ughhhh i wish they had this in my shade
jess from somewhere
I got the lightest shade opal 01 and its still dark :( this feels really nice on the skin super hydrating i just wish they made more shade ranges...
Love love love
Brynn from Kailua, HI
I was looking for a change from my super heavy foundation and I'm so glad I chose this. I have horrible Rosacea so I never go anywhere without my face absolutely caked. This foundation is amazing, it evens out your skin tone but is natural enough to where you can still see my freckles. You don't have to cake your face to cover your redness anymore and I'm so happy. Couldn't give it enough stars.
Just enough coverage
Susan from Vacaville, CA
I used the Bare Minerals color selector. It provided a choice to narrow down to the perfect shade. It feels best on my skin over a silicone primer. Otherwise, it stays too tacky for me. I am very pleased with it. I like it best blended with a damp blending sponge. It dries to a powdery finish that looks natural.
Okay but Not the Best
Sandy from New Hampshire
After picking up this product recently due to my dry skin, I have some positives and some negatives. On the plus side, it does help if you have dry skin as it has a dewy finish. On the negative side the coverage isn't great, so if you have spots to hide, this won't necessarily do it for you. My biggest shock with this product is that it was gone today! I haven't been using it that long (I've been switching between several products since I bought this) or using that much each time and today I found that there was no product left. It definitely doesn't last as long as other liquid foundations. In general I am preferring other foundation products for dry skin such as Juice Beauty and RMS Beauty.
Healed My Skin ❤️🙏🏻
Shellie from Newport Beach, Ca
I want to start by saying...I rarely write reviews. 4 months ago my skin wool a turn for the worst. I was diagnosed with personal dermatitis (PD). After 2 rounds of antibiotics and topical creams and lots of $$$. I decided to take a more natural approach. I cleaned my diet and use the most basic gentle skin care. Only use toothpaste free from SLS. It's almost gone, but when this quarantine is over...I have to go to work and needed to find a foundation. I was hoping for one that would not flare up my skin, BUT I never thought it would actually improve my skin. I've tried it all. Even the most gentle sensitive skin ones. Just had to share because if you have had PD, you know.
5 Stars? Can I give it 20?

No foundation or CC cream in the world will ever beat this foundation stick.
Favorite foundation I have ever used
Morgan from Columbus, OH
I use this product with the combo control primer and I think it compliments the foundation nicely. I have also used this foundation with a thick moisturizer underneath and it looked amazing. I have very sensitive skin, and it doesn't irritate it at all. I have also found that with a moisturizer underneath it will make the foundation look very luminous.
Looked fresh even after a 12 hour nursing shift!
Antonia, BSN, RN from Santa Cruz, CA
For my 33rd birthday, I bought myself all new makeup and decided on bareMinerals because of their clean ingredients and are vegan. I love this foundation stick. The color match was perfect and indistinguishable to my real skin tone other than its obvious perfecting qualities. It went on smooth and blended easily. Long lasting and looked nearly perfect after a 12-hour nursing shift during the pandemic. I am impressed!

Best Stick Foundation
Lindsey C. from Trussville Al
I have never found a stick foundation that was ever good til I found this beauty! Its so good, so creamy & has an amazing finish. The description says it's like a tinted moisturizer finish to medium coverage, but I say it's a really good medium coverage. Unless you apply a very small amount. I love this product, I am a Stylist & I am constantly having 2 wipe hairs off my face from cutting hair & when I do the foundation stays in place, which that's a big bonus for a hairstylist! Best stick foundation out there!
AL from IL
Tried this on a whim a few months ago and so happy I found this! It provides just enough hydration without leaving me oily (I'm suuuuuper oily). It glides on and literally looks and feels like a second skin! Stays all day and the SPF is a great added bonus.
Gives me a Lit from Within glow!
Pam6622 from Houston, TX
Love this product. On me anyway, has a glowy look and I love it. I've used it with a brush, a sponge, and my fingers. Don't recommend the brush. With the sponge and my fingers it goes on neatly and looks great. Highly recommend!
I'm Confused in How to Use
Puff19 from Oklahoma
I love how lightweight this feels on my skin. Like I have nothing on my skin. I have dry, sensitive, acne, redness skin. I didnt use a primer under this and it went on smooth and velvet like. I decided to try a beauty blender since it was recommended on one of the reviews below. I was told my makeup looked splotchy. I always dampen my blender before use. It isnt easy to blend out. I'm still going to experience it more and update this as needed. It reminds me of the tarte poreless primer of how soft and light it is for a foundation.
Great travel make up
Bunnytwo from Birmingham
I love the tinted moisturizer but found it was fading through out the day so I decided to try this. The stick covers well. I use my fingers to blend. I can toss it in my purse for quick touch ups through out the day. Since it I'd a solid stick it can pass through carryons without checking a liquid.
