OK, so I guess my review is just a drop in the ocean of other mediocre reviews, and I'm not surprised. While I like the idea of a mineral, easy-set, no-caking foundation in powder form, it just doesn't do it for me. I have super fair skin and yet it makes me look like a ghost DESPITE being the exact same shade as my skin. WHY? HOW? Beats me - maybe the too-powdery, New York granny …Read more

What's Bare Minerals "#1"?

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 …

I REALLY WANTED TO LIKE THIS PRODUCT BASED OFF OF OTHER REVIEWS. IT COVERED OK, BUT HOLY COW DID IT MAKE MY FACE ITCH!!!!!!! ONCE I STARTED SWEATING ON MY FACE IT WAS A HORRIBLE BURNING/ITCHING SENSATION! I HAVE SINCE THEN USED AVON PRESSED MINERALS WHEN I CAN'T AFFORD GLOMINERALS PRESSED. BOTH OF THEM COVER GREAT AND NO ITCHING OR BURNING NOTICED. ALTHOUGH, THE GLOMINERALS HELPED CLEAR UP …Read more

I love this foundation so much. It is literally like a miracle to me I wish I had found it years go, I'm 18 and I have been suffering from hormonal acne for about 4 years, I got this for my birthday and have been wearing it for about 2 weeks and my skin has more a less completely cleared up. Although you have to apply quite alot, it doesn't matter because its minerals so you don't …Read more

I'm on like jar # 5 or 6 of this. It was my HG when I lived in Chicago but down here in south Georgia it doesn't hold up in the heat. I use a primer but that just wards off the meltdown for maybe an hour or two.

This was my HG foundation for years. It looks so natural and the lightest shade in "fair" matched my super fair skin perfectly (which is difficult). I would get comments all the time on my "complection", and that I had such nice skin. No one noticed I was even wearing foundation. Coverage is amazing, especially combined with such a natural look, and at the end of the day it …Read more

First of all, the salesperson at the bare mineral counter in Hong kong was very rude. I asked to try the color and recommended me another color that would match my skin tone. She showed me a color that is way too orange for me and I knew it already that it won't match my skin tone. I'm an NC37-40. The color that was shown to me was for an NC 42 - 44. I may be tan but not dark tan …Read more

I know I am in the minority here, but Bare Minerals is the closest I have ever come to an HG foundation. Thankfully, I am not sensitive to the bismuth or mica in this. In fact, this is one of the few foundations I have tried (and I have tried many!) that does not break me out. Fair is a dead on perfect match for my skin and I always get compliments when I wear it. It gives me a glow that I miss …Read more

I used to use this years ago, before I new anything really about makeup. Gosh this was awful stuff, it has mica in it, its why you'd get the silverish sheen look that even when u buffed and buffed your little heart away you just ended up looking worse (hehe kind of like the tin man with that silver sheen). Anyhow I ended up hating this stuff, mica in powders or anything really only …Read more

I'll add to the chorus of '1 lipstick' folks. This stuff is awful!


I bought this product after a salesperson recommended it to me. I rarely fall for such scams, but...I must've been having an off day.


This powder has a pearly sheen which makes large pores look gigantic (!!!) and, in general, made my skin texture look awful (where it looks …
