Most Helpful Positive Review Helped my skin clear up!
I bought this kit about 2 weeks ago because I read that it was good for acne prone skin. I am so glad that I decided to get the entire kit! The primer is not heavy or thick, but really helps the foundation stay on all day. The foundation powder has a decent amount of coverage for being a powder and the mineral veil really helps create a flawless finish. The only thing I would have liked was a concealer included in the kit, but I bought one from BM and really like the coverage it provides. Overall, great product!
Most Helpful Critical Review Pretty Finish But Creases In Lines & Wrinkles
I had high hopes for this product. I had heard and read so many glowing reviews for it from people of all skin types. I enjoy using several other brands of powder foundations so I decided to give bareMinerals a try. I have dry/mature skin, more normal in the warmer months, and have recently been using the bareMinerals bareSkin liquid foundation. I like the warmth and glow the powder foundation provides but it is constantly falling into all of my fine lines and wrinkles no matter how it's applied. I use the "swirl, tap, buff" method as recommended. I've used it without a primer and with the bareMinerals primer but the outcome is the same. I'm sort of baffled by this as none of my other powder foundations do this, which is why I enjoy wearing them. I've also tried it with multiple other brands of primer but the creasing continues. It also doesn't last very long...3-4 hours max before it starts to break down. Sigh...... I guess I'll just use this as a setting powder instead. Glad I only committed to the trial size as this has been somewhat disappointing. LOVE the brush but the mineral veil is very matte and isn't any better than the other setting powders I already own.

I really love this makeup. I avoided it for years because my skin breaks out so easily and is so sensitive to practically everything. It gives such a nice finish and I believe it's actually GOOD for my skin!

Not heavy and odorless, stays all day
Probably will not buy again.
Mojo from Bourbonnais Illinois
Not sure if I like the product yet. Have only used one time. Not sure the color is a good match for my skin tone. Couldn't find in the store to help me.
not what it used to be
girl missing the original from Pennsylvania
I bough this exact kit different with the flawless face brush in 2016. I purchased the bareminerals original by itself after I ran out. I used this daily. The formula now is not the same before it gave me a glowy pure look melted right into my skin now its all blotchy. please bring back the old formula I cant find anything else like it and ive tried higher end and drugstore makeup nothing compares to the old formula.
First time using it
Sue from Beverly Hills, FL
Love the way it feels on my skin - color matches quite close and it stands up to heat and humidity
It was really small make up kit
Be from AZ
Although i love bare minerals i think it is the best make up ever but for what i paid for it. It was really small and i was upset about that.

Use this all the time
Not what I expected
JDDEG3 from West Covina,CA
I was very disappointed with this product. Only because I love this brand and have had such good experiences with other products this brand makes. The primer was great but the powder and the veil separated almost immediately.
Best Makeup and Smooth

Smooth and subtle touch look natural but also cover.
Not a fan
Caroline from Az
The color is totally wring for skin tone and left my face drying looking older.
Colors to white

Ive always loved bare minerals
Jessi from shelton ct
I give it 4 stars because i feel that the product has gotten alot smaller. I do love how it applies, it always always comes out perfect.. i do love the new brush that it has, just wish it was a little bigger. It seemed to take a bit longer to put the product on, and my hand started hurting from holding the brush. Why has BareMinerals made their stuff smaller??? and it seems to be a little more expensive too. Dont get me wrong, I love their products, i just wish it was bigger esp for the price..
Ally from Mid-Atlantic
I got compliments the first time I wore it... I also got a mild sunburn the first time I wore it (I spent some time outside). Don't rely on the 15 SPF if you have fair skin!
Ex from Ut
I am sending this back! This goes on soooooo patchy and looks very bad! I tried a few different primers I even tried with no primer. My skin was not dry during application but it clung to everything like it was it also enhanced every single tiny face hair!!!! I had high hopes for this. But it failed me! Im definitely taking this back it's trash!
Loved the makeup. Very small amount.. all tiny...
wendy from Stanley NC
for the price should be bigger..
Wanted to love this
Mnfarmwife from Minnesota
I wanted to love this so bad. I have combination skin and this slides right off and makes me look so shiny. Very sad and disappointed.
I will buy this product for the rest of my days
Trish from Dallas, Oregon
I have struggled with acne my whole life and finding a product that covers but doesn't clog my pores and make my complexion worse has always been an issue. From day one of trying this about 2 weeks ago, I'm sold. It is very light an airy. I don't feel clogged up and I haven't had any real breakouts since I started using this. It also has great coverage. I would highly recommend to anyone.
I love it!
Mariji from Huntington Beach CA
This is the second time I've purchased this. I'm not big on foundation but this feels light and makes my skin looks great!
Heavy Makeup Look, Not Natural
Ms Doover from Santa Fe, NM
I was hoping for a simple alternative to liquid foundation but this is too much stuff to put on my face -- primer, foundation, powder and it looks way too heavy. It looks like a mask. I returned it and will stick with tinted moisturizer.
My new makeup obsession
Allie from Colorado Springs
I am obsessed with the bare minerals foundation! This is my first time buying this item and I will never go back! With liquid I used to always have lines around my chin but this applies so wonderfully and even! Gives me a beautiful glow!
smurray from Belgrade, MT
The foundation was REALLY orange and wasn't as much coverage as I was expecting. The brush is super tiny. But wearing this product, my skin wasnt itchy like liquid fondation makes me and it didnt crease or sit in my pores. It had a nice blurring effect. I would like to get matched the right color.
My puberty could have been this much easier ...
LOS3 from Munich, Germany
I am 33 years old - and it is now that I've finally found the perfect makeup for my skin!
(Oh, if only I would have known this powder when I was a oily and pimply teenager ...)
The makeup blends in perfectly with the skin and it lasts all day. It is good in the winter, and brilliant in the summer. It also gives the skin a nice glow and healthy look - I'd never believed that a powder can do that, before I've tried this mineral powder.
(Tip: You have to use the "Primer" or the "bareMinerals True Oasis" to get the best results.)
No more pimples, no more smudging and of course: no animal testing!
Thank you, bareMinerals! Love it!
The starter kit also lasts for a really, really long time (more than half a year)
Love and will repurchase
Emily from Charlotte NC
I use the primer that comes in the kit with the Matte bare minerals powder foundation (not the one in the kit) everyday . I put on my moisturizer and let it dry and then apply a thin pea sized amount of primer all over the face to smooth my pores. It's the best. And then I use the brush to dust the foundation on. I apply bronzer and blush and I'm done.
