Most Helpful Positive Review Purchased this a few...
Purchased this a few days ago, and it's great! For those that haven't tried it here's my take....it is very matte, so if you have oily skin you will love it. If you have combination skin like I do....you will still love it, just wear a little moisturizer underneath, I also wear a matte primer and it works well for me. It is full coverage but if you're like me and have some problem areas (hyperpigmentation) I just add a little more foundation to those areas. It's very lightweight for a full coverage which is a wonderful plus. Now because it has spf....it will oxidize, so before I purchased I tried on the shade that was a perfect match and walk around the store for about 15-20min to give it time to settle and oxidize. It definitely oxidized. So...I went a shade lighter in my tone. Ex: my shade was 25, but I skipped 24 because it's a cool tone, so the next warm tone was 23...and after it oxidized it was perfect. Make sure you get the correct under tone make a world of difference.
Most Helpful Critical Review Miss the Bareskin foundation :(
This foundation is not even close to the bareskin foundation that was discontinued :( The previous foundation was light and smooth. This foundation makes my skin look dried out and kind of "pills" on my face. That's after I've put moisturizer on. I wish they would bring the other foundation back !!!

Love! I've tried many foundations and this is my favorite by far! It provides full coverage, but feels lighter on my skin. Matches my skin tone perfectly, lots of color options. TIP: Blot with a makeup sponge after application to get a natural non-streaky finish. Note: Dry spots will require primer or it will make the dryness look worse. Primer solves that problem easily though.

This is a great "full coverage" foundation that will last all day.
Best foundation for longwear and full coverage I've ever had
Irene from Myrtle Beach
I use this product with a beauty blender and it gives me full coverage. I work 9-15 hr days and last all day no creasing. Feels like nothing is on my face. I absolutely recommend this foundation.
Breaks you out
Mishi07 from Los Angeles
This foundation will cause cystic breakouts! It contains an ingredient Algin, which if you look it up is a known acne trigger. Please if you are acne prone steer clear.
Yes I Always buy this product It

Trueble0511 from Somewhere
I had a severe allergic skin reaction to two different medications that left tons of underlining health issues for me. I always had great complexion my whole life, clear and no redness. I wore foundation for fun and mostly light powder for everyday. Feeling self conscious of my skin for the first time in my life at 27, I'm 30 now; I had tried about everything. Got to the point where I had to change everything I used, skincare, haircare etc. Anything I used in the past started to burn, itch, make the blister reaction come back angrily. After a suggestion my dermatologist made to try bare minerals I haven't looked back this is the only thing I use for foundation now. My skin actually stays pretty clear now partially thanks to this product and the way it blurs any scarring or imperfections I have now is amazing. I cried the first week I used this and everybody tells me that my skin looks so much better and healthy! I still have the reaction come back but this doesn't aggravate like other foundations do. After a year of use this will be staple for years to come!!
BEST FOUNDATION EVER!!
Stefani from California
I've tried it all!! I started using foundation at around 15 years old (I'm almost 21 now), and nothing has worked so well for my acne prone and sensitive skin as well as this foundation.
-it has beautiful buildable coverage
- it doesn't crease around my eyes or mouth like other foundations tend to do.
- it's not comedogenic!!!! (Everything else breaks me out and this does not!)
-it just looks flawless on the skin
AND it has my perfect shade. So many shade options! Love this foundation.
Shade is darker
Sam from Boston
It's a overall good foundation. It's full coverage, and it doesn't streak. But I believe it oxidizes and turns darker. Just go with a shade lighter cause it will turn darker. Hope they fix that but it is a good foundation
yes I wilk buy this again
Aunt Mary from Lkeland FL
It's fresh not cakey, looks and feels smooth....
Art Lover from Florida
I apply this foundation with a brush. It feels light on my face and is the perfect color!! I have yellow and olive skin and it is very difficult to match my skin. It has great coverage, blends well and makes my skin look flawless. Finally the perfect color and it has great ingredients!!!
Bare Mineral liquid foundation
D jean from Nashua NH
The product itself is great. I like the coverage. The actual product casing was defective snd I had to return for replacement. Hope this is not a trend.
Cindy from Florida
The Ladies at Ulta where so helpful.
Picked perfect color match and love the feel of Bare Minerals. Also bought the mineral veil which is great!
KJM from Phoenix
The formula is disgusting and is extremely hard to wash off your brushes. It's like a weird gum but needs a serious degreaser to clean off. Very weird and can't be healthy.
KJM from Phoenix
Awful. I've been loyal to Bareminerals for years. I wanted to try this when it first came out but it didn't work well. Not sure why but a year later I bought it again in a different shade. I've tried to use with many techniques. With their primer, alone, adding setting powder. It all looks really bad. Outlines pores and clumps up in patches. Creates a crust layer, so when you smile you look like you have deep wrinkles. I get my face derma-planed so I know my face is super smooth and the primer should work regardless. I'm mostly disappointed in wasting so much money on this. The brand seems to be going downhill. Rip.
It's hard to shop online for first time
Andrea from Palm Desert, CA
I was really excited to try the product and brand for first time. Shopping online is harder than I thought, bought Sandalwood 15 after hours of research and I end with the wrong shade, a little dark, not much but still a little disappointed.
The best thing to ever put on my face
Winnie from Florida
I LOVE this foundation! I found the perfect color (0.5 porcelain) it's so hard to find the perfect color for my fair skin and this is it. Not only is it the perfect shade but it sits on the skin so nicely and last the whole day. I've gone through so many other foundations and honestly if it's not this one then I don't want it. This is my 6th time repurchasing!
I would buy this product again
Debbie from Rancho Cucamonga, CA
It is easy to use an blend. Looks much more natural on my face.
Makes skin look even more dry
Srobers from oregon
So Ive used this off and on for years and I am having a new problem Ive never had before...to the point where I am done trying to make this work. As soon as I put this on it pills up and looks like chunks/flakes of skin all over my face! and it sounds like i may not be the only one. I use moisturizer, ive tried oils, and primer and nothing stops it. I dont even have SUPER dry skin which is the weird part. I am wondering if formula has slowly changed...
Sam from Atlanta
I have oily to combination skin and I love this foundation. I like coverage that is light to medium. This is more medium/full for me so I always wear this when I am going out and love it. I have sensitive skin and this works great! Also has SPF!
BEST FOR ACNE PRONE SKIN W SCARS
Monique from San Diego
This product is holy grail. I've tried so many foundations from luxury to drugstore, in 2021, and this one by far is the best overall. I have acne scarring and active acne and it seriously makes my skin look smooth. Idk how this older product is still outshining new "glass skin" foundation formulas today, other brands need to take note. Only catch, depending on if you use a brush or sponge it can be a little tricky to blend but I also think it big time depends on your primer! It doesn't do super well over a dewy primer or moisturizer, so my advice is to add that dewy look back in AFTER you apply the foundation using a liquid highlighter or dewy setting spray. This product is worth every penny and I pray they never get rid of it!!
My go-to foundation
Kattababy from Washington
This is my favorite foundation, and I've tried very many over the years. The coverage is great, and doesn't look too cakey and it doesn't break my acne-prone skin out. It also stays on all day, even when I go to music festivals! My skin is oily, and by the end of the day, I still don't feel like I need to rip my face off.
ruby from CA
The best I've tried. If you're looking for something that is medium coverage but very buildable without looking cakey, try this.
Been using it for 4 years.
I have combo skin, sensitive in a few areas and it doesnt irritate my skin.
Marisol from Online
I have sensitive skin and prefer a natural coverage and I can never go wrong with this foundation! Have yet to find something better
I would not purchase agein
Makeupmomma2 from Santa Maria California
I will be returning this , I didn't care for it at all . It's very dry looking on the skin , sets in fine lines and creases . I have very moist balanced skin not dry at all . Gives a dull flat finish look to the skin.
