I've been using this foundation, in fairly light (and this one ONLY) for over 20 years. I bought it off one of their first infomercials in the 90's. I'm 42 with dry skin, prone to hormonal chin/neck acne.

I knew then I would never go back to liquid foundation. It just feels gross and I just imagine it clogging my pores.

No other mineral brand has come close …

I used to die by Bare Minerals loose foundation in Fairly light. It gave me good enough coverage and looked very natural and made my skin look healthy and did not break me out if I slept in it, which happens more than I would like to say. But the problem is with the packaging. They have compacts of pressed powder now but those break me out and the one here that I am reviewing in the Loose Powder …Read more

I have used so many make ups. I am acne prone and oily… This is the best ever hands-down. Don’t listen to anyone who tells you mineral make up just makes acne worse, it’s individual to each person. You have to know how to properly apply this make up. Get on YouTube and watch some tutorials… Buffing is everything with mineral make up. You can achieve beautiful glowing skin with the powder best …Read more

I love this stuff! I've been buying it 2 years and the only complaint I have is that my skin ends to get shiny/oily by the end of the day. Maybe I'll switch to the matte foundation and see if that helps. Still, would definitely recommend to any of my friends!

I started using bare minerals in 1999 when I ordered it off QVC. I loved it for years then took a break to try other things. When I went back to it I was disappointed. Coverage doesn't seem to be what it once was and the sheen is more prominent. I feel like a glow stick when wearing it now. Not sure if the formula changed? Also, the jar size is a lot smaller but price is higher. (My …Read more

I tried this out because I've been dealing with acne lately. This made my skin look horrible. It made it look cakey dry, and flat. The color was off on my nc15 skin as well. It made me look 10 years older. Threw it in the trash. Might work for someone young and oily.

I've bought three shades, light and fairly light. I use light and fairly light in the following way: I make a solution of the mineral foundation with rose water and glycerin apply it with a brush and either buff it out with a kabuki or a beauty blender. Flawless. The rose water and glycerin idea I got from finding a recipe of something called "Magnolia Balm" which originally …Read more

So... I'm underwhelmed. After watching Bare Minerals infomercials throughout childhood and seeing the starter kits at Sephora for so many years, I finally was intrigued enough to try this "miracle" powder foundation. I have oily, acne-prone, sensitive skin. I was using the Youngblood loose mineral foundtion in Ivory and found it too light. Fairly Light is a perfect match for my …Read more

I keeps' it brief when it comes to this pseudo-unique powder 'foundation' (can you tell where I'm going?)

It's not buildable. People with flawless skin always buff it on cheerfully, insisting that you can get medium to full coverage. Medium is a stretch, full is a damn lie.

It's true, to build, you do need to work in many (20+ is fine girl, keep …
