I am extremely fair-skinned and this foundation in the shade Bare Porcelain 01 is the first foundation I have ever found that truly matches my skin. My skin is also very sensitive and dry, so the formula--which is VERY liquidy-- is fantastic. It is very bendable and is ideal for everyday wear. BareMinerals sells a specific brush to go with this foundation, but I just use a normal kabuki foundation brush and it works just fine, but this is probably not a foundation that could be applied with just your fingers.As far as coverage level, I would say this is sheer to medium coverage-TOPS. Definitely not for people who need a full coverage foundation. Overall, I would highly recommend this foundation. The price is very reasonable (approximately $30) and the look is very natural with a touch of dewy-ness.

I'm loving this foundation. I've heard very mixed reviews but for my skin which has always been oily but as I'm getting older is becoming more normal. This foundation makes me glow and it looks very smooth. I use the real techniques stippling brush to apply and I only use about 3 drops to cover my face. For reference I wear medium beige in the original bare minerals.

Idk what happened but this stuff ended up horrifically on my face. I tried the exact same color in Sephora on my jawline and seemed great, but when I tried on the one I bought later at home it was SO liquidy and yellow and it ran into every fine line and showed every little patch of imperfection. Maybe I bought a dud? Who knows. All I know is I'm returning it. I should have never strayed from my Clinique foundation, because that stuff couldn't be any more amazing.

The good thing about this foundation is that the texture is very thin and soft, and it's pigmented, so a little is enough for medium to full coverage. On my dry skin, the product is neither drying nor greasy. And, yes, do shake the bottle vigorously before application.However, BareSkin foundation makes my entire face look very "flat." If you've ever had that "flat foundation face" issue, you'd know exactly what I'm talking about. This happens even when my skin is prepped with moisturizer and primer.It's not horrible enough for me to bother with returning, and it looks decent after I've added blush/bronzer, highlighter, etc., but a foundation should not be this complicated, especially in this day and age. Thus, I will not repurchase.For reference, I have dry skin; my skin tone is NC20, and "Bare Linen" is a perfect, seamless match.

It's okay. Its good for sheer coverage and I like how it isn't tested on animals and how it has SPF in it. It isn't great though when I put it on my nose- it makes my pores look noticeable and kind of clogged up. Not my favorite thing but oh well. It's a good sheer coverage foundation for my face but I am going to avoid putting it on my nose. I use the shade Bare Cream.

I have such mixed feelings about this foundation. I am very pale (for reference, I wear BR10 in Touche Eclat foundation, 110 in MUFE HD) and got the palest color in this. The color match was great, which is rare for me. Usually stuff is too grayish and pale (Nars Siberia) or yellowish, or more often, just not pale enough. What I also really love about this foundation is how light it is- it almost feels like it shouldn't have any coverage, it's so thin and easy to apply. Even more light and liquidy than Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua. But it does a great job of evening out my skin tone and covering up most of the redness on my face- which is saying a lot, since I have borderline rosacea on my cheeks. It last a long time, and provides this bright, pretty finish. I almost want to call it "glowing," which is weird because it's matte. I used to work at a makeup store, and when I first tried this, everyone was like "what did you do to your skin? it looks amazing." I love the way it looks on me, from far away, at least.Because here's what I don't like about it: I have dryish skin, not flakey but a bit dehydrated, and this really, really clings to the patches of dry skin around my nose, above my lip, and even sometimes on my cheeks. It's not grotesque looking, but it is annoying. If I use a good moisturizer and primer, I can avoid a lot of this, but it's annoying that it takes so much prep work. Still, though. I keep coming back to this one. And in the end, I would probably repurchase.

I like how it has SPF in it. It's good for sheer coverage. You could kind of see the pores on my nose though when I used it :-/ it's a decent foundation but it isn't amazing. I used the shade Bare Cream.

I read and saw so many great reviews about this foundation and decided to try it out. I went to the Bare Escentuals store at my local mall and had one of the MUAs color match me. I purchased it, and was repeatedly asked why I didn't want the brush that was meant for it (the one with the well). That kind of turned me off, not being asked i mean, I get it's their job to sell, I just think the brush is gimmicky.This foundation is reasonably priced in my opinion for B.E. and it matches my skin very well. My problems with it were that it is such a sheer coverage, and this is actually my personal problem, not the foundation's. Even after building the coverage, it's still not enough for my problem areas on my face. Also, it is not forgiving to any dry patches on your skin, even after moisturizing and priming. The bottle is a pain in the neck at times, just trying to get the drops out. I also don't think there are enough shades offered in the collection, especially for women with deeper skin tones.This foundation does last all day and leaves a beautiful finish once it's set. I really admire how the areas of my skin that aren't problematic look with this foundation on. I WOULD buy this again when and if my skin improves

I shook it used it exactly as it should be, expecting no coverage and a bit of colour, and it is complete nonsense. I have used enough foundations of this kind in the past to know that it's not my skin, it's the foundation that's crap. Coverage is worse than without because it dulls the natural glow that well hydrated skin normally has. Emphasizes every spot, every hint of a dry match magnified, every less than pristine surface looks rougher and bumpier. The pigment in this is either not too finely milled or it is in a base which doesnt settle well on the skin, only settles into pores. Or the two don't mix well together and it separates on your face once applied. My skin is not oily, btw. Have tried to make this work for months. Waste.

Horrible on my oily skin with large pores. Already not a fan of the powder foundation of this brand, I have decided to give the liquid one a try. I have used over a primer, but the product sank right into my pores. Big disappointment.
