pigmentation

sheer

it's very sheer and gives just a hint of radiance, and i use it as my last step of makeup in the morning over my blush on my cheeks - it evens out everything and really does a great job of diffusing the light to make pores and wrinkles disappear

- Qvc User

i love the sheer glow it gives to my skin

Ok - first of all, there is a reason this company has many fomulas, from their amazing powder (in original and matte), to now a BB cream/primer, to now this liquid.The reason is this: our faces are different and we may need something different.First, let me say, you MUST learn how to apply this. If you just do a few drops on their brush (which I recommend) or yours, and then try to apply like a regular foundation, you will be dissapointed and end up wasting product.I watched the videos (just as I did for the powder makeup) and this is a lot in the application AND getting matched.With two drops, I had light coverage, an extra drop (half a drop even) I was able to go over my undereye circles and some redness. Perfection.With another layer I had pretty much full coverage.I didn't even have to apply their 'setting' powder, but I guess I finally have a use for their mineral veil!This is meant to buildable, you have to get matched, and you have to learn how to use it - otherwise your 'unlike' of this is likely unfounded. That's not to say you can't not like it, its a matter of preference, but frankly - unless you have the foundation of this foundation down - don't review.Now, for what I wanted to know:1. Used without anything underneath but light moisturizer from this morning. No finishing powder, no setting spray, nothing: It made me look dewy and fresh. It's lasted about 7 hours. Pretty impressive. It iddn't look bad after the 7 hours, but it had wiped off a bit (well, I touch my face....)2. With finishing powder only (this includes a bit of moisturizer beforehand): it reduced some of my 'glow' but I could tell it wasn't going to budge much more. I then applied another layer (the first was their original mineral veil) of their hydrating mineral veil, which has a bit of shimmer to it and I got my glow back ;) It stayed a good 12 hours, as longa s I wasn't rubbing my face a ton (and come on, you rub something off, its gonna come off!)3. THE WHOLE SHEBANG! This was when I was going 'out out' - I used a primer on my whole face, then used Smashbox's face finishing spray in "cool" after the primer (just because this helps when I sweat....) Then I applied this stuff, with two drops for overall and one drop for extra coverage under eyes and redness.I did a LIGHT dusting of hydrating mineral veil over my forehead, nose and chin - the rest of my face was 'set' with my other powder makeup such as bronzer, highlighter...Then, I finished with Urban decay's All Nighter (regular).Wowza, ok, I know, this is one of those, lots of steps but I don't do this very often. I glowed and in a great way, my skin FELT good, I hate HATE liquid foundation and this one didn't make me itch or feel it at all. AND with these steps it stayed allll day, allllll night......and I fell asleep in it. The next morning, I looked FABULOUS. It didn't even look like I had done anything but tone down my eyeshadow. Wow.Bottom line: learn how to apply it, get matched, and this is one of those things I'll use for quick days where I want nothing more than a sheerer tint with mascara, and also it will be used for those days I want a full coverage face. It IS AMAZING.Bonus? After using it for about two weeks? my skin looks better. I've never used tone correcting, didn't think I needed it. But wow, some of my redness is gone and some of my pigmentation issues (which I'm pale, they dotn' show up much) - they are GONE though. Wow. WoW.I wont' give up my mineral foundation from them, I use original - but this? this is great and is going to be part of my regular rotation. « less

NO GOOD

I have unique skin; very little oil, very dry, and acne as well as dark spots from past acne. So here are my problems with BareSkin:1. This foundation really highlighted every dry patch. Even ones I didn't know I had. I clean, exfoliate, moisturize my face, yet this foundation shows every dry piece of skin and clearly defines it.2. It doesn't blend in and because it doesn't blend in, it never sets. No matter how much or how little you buff it in, it just keeps swirling on top leaving visible brush strokes behind.3. BareSkin has terrible coverage. It never covered the dark spots, and looks so cakey because it does not set. Its coverage is comparable to BB creams, that is how light it is. It is so sheer that I'd hardly even consider this a foundation at all. If you have acne marks, or any kind of imperfection you want to cover, like me, BareSkin will sorely disappoint you.4. It is not long lasting. What little coverage I could get went away in less than an hour. I don't have oily skin, where did all my foundation go?? Oh, it's latched onto my dry patches. Thanks BareSkin.So if you have perfectly clear skin with ZERO dryness, BareSkin would be great, but then again, so would any other foundation. I would never recommend this to a friend. « less

New Favorite Foundation

I have a habit of reviewing products too fast before I really get the full experience of them. I have been wearing this foundation for about 10 days now so I finally feel ready to post a review. First off, I can't believe this has a lot of negative reviews. I have tried and used A LOT of high end foundations. I find myself always changing brands when I run out of something because I have never been able to find something I am truly satisfied with. Finally I think I have found it! I have combo skin, I get the occasional pimple and dry patches. I have some uneven skin tone and large pores. I like a foundation that has a good amount of coverage but that has a natural finish. I also hate to feel like I'm wearing foundation. I want a light feel but something with medium-full coverage. And finally my biggest concern is clogged pores. I have struggled with stretched out pores and blackheads my entire life. This is the first foundation where my blackheads have actually diminished since wearing it. Which let me tell you, is a miracle. This gives me great coverage and it feels super light weight. I love the finish. A couple of things, 1. you HAVE to shake it! If you don't the pigments won't mix together. It's a VERY watery formula, which I think is what helps it feel light weight. 2. Application is everything! I shake this up and then squeeze a few drops onto the back of my hand. I then dot it all over my face and use a Sigma F80 foundation brush (flat head foundation brush) and blend the foundation in, in circular motions. Because of the watery formula a beauty blender might work well with this but I haven't tried it yet. This is not a foundation you can apply with your hands, you need an application tool. 3. This foundation needs to be set! I use Bare Minerals Miracle Veil to set it and it lasts all day. Overall, I am really, really happy with this new Bare Minerals. My skin looks clearer, it really minimizes the appearance of my pores and imperfections. Less

Truly Amazing

I am truly impressed with this product. I steered clear of this product for quite a while because I heard bad things about it, like it wouldn't stay on and come off halfway through out the day and that it wasn't good for people with oily skin cause it made them look extra oily. I haven't had any of those problems with this foundation. Sometimes it does get a little flakey looking on dry patches of my face (which has happened with multiple kinds of foundation that I've tried, like Urban Decay's Naked Skin which was really dry) but so long as I put on a good moisturizer on those spots that tend to be a bit dryer this product goes on super smooth.Now I absolutely love Bare Minerals as a brand because they make there products with your skin in mind. They make sure there products aren't going to have a negative affect on your skin and they're made out of pure minerals instead of a bunch of bad chemicals. They're made to moisturize your skin as well as being anti-aging. Wearing the foundation won't clog your pores up like so many foundations do. Which is why I am so happy they came out with a liquid foundation because I can get instant coverage with liquid verses powders and so many liquid foundations are bad for your skin so its nice having a healthy foundation to use.There are a couple things to know about using this product though. For one, since this product is made from natural ingredients and put into liquid form it naturally separates in the bottle so it needs to be shaken. And shake like you mean it. There have been a couple times that I have squeezed out a drop or two and the drops looked weird. It was because the product wasn't completely blended together and I feel like thats why people have had bad experiences with this product is because they have applied it to there skin when it wasn't completely blended together. Second thing is that you have to set this foundation with a finishing powder. Even if you don't use a primer with this foundation it still needs to be set at the end. The Bare Skin perfecting veil works great. Its finely milled so its super soft and blurs lines and pores, but any finishing powder works great too, it just needs to be set with something to help with staying power and I've had it last me a 12 hour intense work day and it stayed on. So when used correctly it works great.This foundation also has more of a sheer coverage to it but it is completely build able coverage. The more drops you use the more coverage you get so its customizable. I love that I can take a single drop to a specific area to create more coverage without the spot looking cakey. I actually use a beauty blender sponge applying this foundation. I just put the drops on the back of my hand and dip the blender into it. Their perfecting face brush does work well to apply this foundation but I feel like the beauty blender does a much better job of blending it into my skin, and I wish I would have know that earlier cause it would have saved me money from having to buy another brush. So if you already have a beauty blender you can definitely apply this foundation with it you don't have to buy the brush. (Just remember to shake well) « less

Color in Bare Natural

I am a medium beige in the loose original mineral powder foundation so I ordered the Bare Natural in the serum foundation. I had to play with it, just as I had to play with the powder mineral foundation when I first started using it several years ago, which also took awhile for me to get used to the application. I think the first mistake I did when I started using this was applying too much product. Just as with the loose minerals, less is more. I bought this serum foundation with the brush prior to Sephora carrying it. I find that I don't need a moisturizer before applying this, but I do apply a small amount of primer on under this (I use Hourglass mineral primer). What I have found is that I shake it well, and then apply only one drop to the brush reservoir and then start by dotting this amount on my cheeks, forehead, and then chin. I then buff it on in each of those sections. I found that one drop was plenty for the coverage I wanted. I find that I can blend it under my eyes as well. I have checked the color in indoor and outdoor lighting and it looks natural, and the color is a perfect match for my skintone. My skin is combination, I have light olive skin with brown hair/eyes. I am in my forties, so my makeup needs were changing and I needed to find something different from the loose bare minerals formulation. It is too bad there are so many mixed reviews, and that it didn't work for some people, but I am glad that I have played with it and found what works well for me. When I first tried this, I agree it left streak marks, and looked a little cakey because I was applying too much, but after playing with the application and discovering that ONE drop was plenty and buff it in just like with the loose minerals, I absolutely love the finish and natural coverage of this foundation. I set it with a sheer powder (Diorskin Forever #2) and the finish is flawless and natural, and for me it lasts all day. So happy with my purchase and I am glad I did not send it back! Love it. Less
