I actually love this foundation. Or, to be more exact – I WOULD love it if I could find a shade that matched. This foundation is great in so many ways. The finish is beautiful, the lasting power is excellent, the fact that it doesn't look like makeup on your skin while covering everything at the same time is amazing. However, the shade range for pale skin is a disaster.

There are …

Never thought I'd be able to wear a powder type foundation because I have extremely dry, flaky skin. This foundation when applied correctly looks flawless! I watched you tuber shelby wilson who posts a lot of bareminerals tutorials and she made me fall in love with this powder! Okay, another you tube Wayne Goss helped just a little. :-)
The key I found is you really have to buff it into …

It is hit or miss for me with mineral make up. I decided to give this a whirl again since I'm older and my skin is changing. Plus, I like to have something fast to apply on days that I don't have a lot of time. I have this in the color golden medium. It's good and holds up on the oily areas of my skin. I have noticed a little oxidation but not bad. I like that you barely have …Read more

I love Bare Minerals. Although I don't apply it properly, I still love it. You've got to make sure you purchse the real product and not the knock-offs though. There's buildable coverage, spf and a wide color range. Although I try other foundations, I always go back to using Bare Minerals.

Ok it took me about 13 years but I finally learned my lesson.

I like the formula of the original a lot better than the matte option despite me having oily skin. The original gives you a airbrushed glow whereas the matte formula is very mediocre. I also like being able to build up the coverage. For a powder fndt, this sure offers a lot of pigment.

Now with all that being …

The Original Foundation is still my favorite. I have used this product for about 16 years, although I have also tried Laura Geller Balance & Brighten, Wander Beauty Stick, And Philosophy Skin Tint And had success with those foundations too. Shade match is my biggest challenge and Bare Esentuals does a nice job. I use a moisturizer, A good primer and the makeup lasts all day without making …Read more

So I was a little fearful since this has Bismuth in it. I had tried the loose Matte from Bare Minerals and it's just okay. I wear bare minerals blush with no breakouts and it has bismuth in it, so I figured it was probably okay since the blush didnt go directly on my skin.....so I got brave.....haven't used Bare Minerals since it came out....the original loose version....so I tried it …Read more

I’ve been wearing the original foundation for ten years. My shade is Fair 01. I absolutely love the buildable coverage and the glow it gives your skin throughout the day. I always get complimented on it. It’s great for my skin as I’m prone to acne and blackheads as it’s non-comedogenic. It doesn’t dry out my skin as all. I trynother foundations but always come back to this. I just wish they made …Read more

I’ve used this in the original formula for years. I took a break from it in 2008 when everyday minerals first became popular and was cheaper. Then went back to bare minerals after I ran out of that because they eliminated a lot of shades and increased their prices.
I don’t use this every time that I wear foundation. I cycle through a few others that I like lol. UD naked skin and bare …

I was genuinely excited to try out a mineral foundation and got my hands on 'Golden Nude' and 'Tan Nude' which seemed the nearest color matches. I tried them on an evening - one on the left side of my face and one on the right. Unfortunately neither side matched my tone and I had to remove them after checking in different lighting conditions.

I love how the …
