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 …

I’ve been having a difficult time with my skin lately and after coming to the conclusion products heavy in silicones were causing my breakouts, I decided to go back to the basics for awhile. This wouldn’t be a foundation I would usually go for because the coverage is light to medium, but I actually do like it and it doesn’t irritate my sensitive skin while I’m trying to use minimal ingredients …Read more
