Age: 25-29 Skin: Acne-prone, Fair, Not Sure Hair: Brunette, Straight, Medium Eyes: Green

I'd used this for the past 2 years and while it's an above average foundation, it's not hg status. Before this I'd been using full coverage foundations like MAC Studio Fix (powder) and Estee Lauder Double Wear so this did seem especially natural-looking compared to those. However a few months ago I bought my first tinted moisturizer and with my new & broadened perspective on what coverage is/means, Bare Minerals is somewhere in the middle. It will not look like you're not wearing anything at all, but it is very subtle. For me what made this special is that it was very good to my acne prone skin (unlike my old foundations). And that combined with their Skin Rev-er Upper (also helped clear up my skin) and Mineral Veil (makes application look more natural, diminishes pores) was this perfect combination of great stuff for my skin. Since my skin has improved I've gotten more comfortable with wearing sheer coverage foundations, and I've kind of broken that cycle of; wearing heavy makeup to cover breakouts, and then putting on more heavy makeup to cover the new breakouts that were caused by the makeup, etc. Most of the foundations I've been trying for the past few months have been fine, but if my skin ever acted up very badly again I would switch back to this. For now I am enjoying trying lighter and sheerer products with my improved skin.
