i really liked this foundation- the coverage is very buildable, so perfect for someone like me who loves a sheer finish but could also use a full coverage every once in a while

- Bareminerals User

i got a shade buttercream 03 after one week of use of testing this stick foundation i feel great i always at my work place more than 10 hours a day and my face just got shiny a little bit in a healthy and my skin even look glowing especially this foundation very lightweight and blendable it’s goes on smoothly all over my face and good coverage not to thick when i apply on my face it’s feel like it’s add moisture to my skin in the same time and i received this product for complimentary for testing purposes and the opinion is on my own

i work anywhere from 6 to 13 hours in a club and this foundation stays comfortable and doesn't crease or oxidize

- Bareminerals User

it doesn't cake, or oxidize into a weird color during the day

- Ulta User

i've been getting control over my oil, this product is amazing and has given me all day full coverage with minimal creasing

- Ulta User

- Sephora User

easy to blend and has a nice wear, i paired mine with a mattifying primer because i'm more on the oily side and it worked great

- Sephora User



i like how natural this foundation looks

i love using a flat or domed brush for stick foundation because it gives off a fuller coverage, it blends perfectly well with a brush and gives a very natural and skin like finish

- Ulta User


medium coverage

it stays all day and its a great light to medium coverage

- Bareminerals User

tried out this beauty the bareminerals complexionrescuefoundation in shade suede this hydrating foundation stick goes on smooth with medium coverage when applied to my skin (i built it up a little in problem areas) i believe u can build it up to full coverage on some areas overall its a great foundation i have combination skin (more dry in winter months) dry patches did not exist with this foundation i also used a primer under this foundation stick (elf poreless puddy primer ontop of moisturized skin around 6 1/2 hours i began getting oily in my tzone however that always happens when i wear foundation for long wear so i believe its my skin not the foundation (this product was sent as complimentary for me to test out)

Nice if you only need light coverage

I received this product complementary in exchange for my honest review.I was very excited to see that I was receiving this product because I am hoping to switch to brands that use more natural ingredients in their products, such as Bare Minerals. I will start out with what I enjoyed about it. Some stick foundations can be a bit stiff when applying, but this was silky smooth and felt so hydrating. It was easy to blend (I recommend using a brush rather than a sponge in order to obtain a more even coverage) which pleasantly surprised me. This is also a very buildable product which is great if you like both lighter and more full coverage. I have an incredibly hard time finding foundations that match my skin tone and undertones (and doesn't make me look horribly orange) but this product matched very well and had minimal oxidation!!When shopping for foundation, I look for higher coverage since I have some skin texture and uneven skin tone. This foundation looks great at first but throughout my busy days, it tends to wear off more quickly than other foundations I've used. The other downside was that it settled into my pores and around any acne that I had so I didn't find myself reaching for it unless my skin was super clear that day. Ultimately it would be fine if you just want to even out your skin tone a bit, but if you are like me and need something with more coverage and long lasting, I wouldn't recommend this.Once again, I received this product for free in exchange for an honest review. « less

A million times yes!

I love so many things about this. In no particular order... I personally hate getting 'stuff' on my hands, so I LOVE the stick application. I draw a few lines on the areas I want, and blend it in with a beauty blender. I'm sure your fingers would work fine, as well. The color glides on so smoothly, and blends easily. The coverage is easily a solid medium, if maybe a little more. Nothing hides my dark circles, but this makes them a heckuva lot less noticeable. It's creamy (but very light textured st the same time), so the finish is a little more dewy than matte. I'm 40, and although I don't have noticeable lines to complain about, it is without a doubt the only foundation I've tried that doesn't settle into the fine lines under my eyes. It lasts, too. By the end of the day, it's still more or less there. The range of colors is large; I'm sure there is a color that will work for everyone. I bought the Wheat color. It is more tan than my skin (I'm pretty fair), but it blends perfectly with the beauty blender. I hope to God they never discontinue this, because I've never loved a foundation until now. And I do LOVE this. My only complaint is that I personally think the price is a little steep (because I'm kind of frugal, and don't really think a makeup product should cost more than like, $20). For anyone used to paying $30-$60 for a foundation, you probably won't balk at the price.If it helps, I think I have pretty normal skin anymore. It used to be super-oily until I started cleansing with an oil cleanser and moisturizing with an oil moisturizer. I think adding all the oil actually prevents your skin from trying to overproduce it, at least in my case. So, I still get a little oily in the t-zone, but not much to speak of. The rest is normal.I think this foundation would be good for dry skin, too. « less

i loved this product. it’s so much easier to apply than regular foundations, and it blends like a dream! definitely recommend to anyone with combination or dry skin, and for sure use a hydrating primer before!! love it!!

I love this product more than anything! I have been looking for an everyday lightweight foundation to give me some coverage to even out my skin tone and this was exactly what I needed. It feels creamy and light and it blends really easily. I don’t even feel the need to use concealer because it does a good job of hiding dark circles. For people with dry skin, this is perfect! *this doesn’t last as long as other foundations

Never Thought This Would Be Perfect For Oily Skin!

I am really loving this non-greasy hydrating, easy to apply, perfectly portable foundation stick by bareMinerals. I have an oily complexion so I was a little nervous at first that this foundation would not leave my face matte, or have full enough coverage to conceal blemishes, cover large pores, or remove any redness from inflammation. It is great for all of the above, and I love how I can easily build coverage in problem areas, yet leave the medium, natural coverage in other areas. It leaves a very beautiful, dewy glow that doesn't get shiny throughout the day when you apply over a primer, cover it with a powder foundation or loose powder and set with setting spray. I did find that when using bareMinerals Complexion Rescue Hydrating Foundation Stick Broad Spectrum SPF25 in the color Birch 1.5 that I could actually use it as both a concealer and a foundation and, overall ended us using less facial makeup. My absolute favorite thing about this foundation is how easy it is to use! It makes my morning routine much faster, as it's much quicker to blend out than my typical liquid foundation, and so much easier for a touch up or to cover up any mistakes when applying makeup (like a mascara mishap). It is also great for on the go and fits so easily in your makeup bag or purse. I am so happy that I received this product complimentary in exchange for my unbiased opinion from bareMinerals because I never would have thought that this hydrating, mess-free foundation would be so perfect for my oily complexion. I definitely am going to purchase a new stick once I run out and I want to buy a darker shade for contouring and brighter shade for highlighting. Only thing I recommend is that the colors seem to be a little lighter in person than on the color chart when color matching, so maybe order a color or two darker than you may think you need, and they definitely don't have any oxidation, which is awesome! « less

Suggestions for a decent coverage bb cream or foundation for sensitive skin?? I have hormonal/cystic acne so I’m trying to switch to a lighter foundation or bb cream that hopefully won’t make things worse.

Hi everyone! I need help with finding a foundation. My skin is acne-prone but it gets dry when spots are healing, (I do exfoliate and use moisturizer, serums, etc). I want something that is non-cakey, good coverage, and hydrating. It doesn’t have to be just a foundation, concealer paired with foundation works too! Please give me suggestions! I’ve tried so many products trying to find one that works for me perfectly 😭 thank you!!!

Not a tinted moisturizer but I love this! To control my oils, I apply the Nikkia Joy Velvet Finishing Powder over top with my damp beauty sponge. The combo is amazing, but both products are good separately :)

This is a really pretty foundations that build able to a medium coverage. The barepro concealer sticks under my eyes pretty well too, much better then any other concealer I used. When your picking a shade make sure you use the function that shade matches to what you already use bc the models they show aren’t an accurate representation of the color.

This is my favorite everyday foundation as of now. I have an oily T zone/big pores that I’m still trying to perfect but if you use the right technique for oily areas this foundation is sooo good! They had me at lightweight and water based! It’s also hydrating and blends like a dream.
