Drying, causes flare ups, heavy
I was part of the group blessed to be able to try this early. I LOVE MY BE, and wanted to share that before my review of this product.The product is very drying, settles into fine lines and wrinkles, and the side of my nose, a very odd thing. It even made me look like I had wrinkles that I don't have, especially after wearing it for a couple of days, because not only did it appear dry and cakey (more drying of the skin than a cakey finish, so it's a little hard to explain), but, it actually was drying my skin out while it was on, so that every day my skin was drier than the day before. I want to make sure and say, these results were with the best possible skin care, and that, frankly, saved my skin during use, and will help it recover. Even as I write this review, I have pimples forming/showing, and my skin is now overproducing oil to compensate from use of the Bare Skin liquid foundation.It also does not cover well, and I don't have that much to cover. One tiny area that's a little red, just looked more pronounced and that doesn't happen with my Bare Minerals Original Foundation.The good news. This is a truly innovative product and formulation (I do not work for the company, I just analyzed it a lot, because I really wanted to like it).The Bare Minerals Perfecting Face Brush (sold separately) is necessary! It is amazing, synthetic bristles, and shake (shake well), drop and buffing the foundation on, is a dream application. There is nothing else like it in foundation.Shade MatchingIf you're going to order this online, trust me, go by the descriptions of each shade more so than the color photos. I tried two. Bare Cream (05) which is for the most golden light skin, and it is!!! It is VERY golden/yellow!!! The second one I tried was a much better match for me, Bare Linen (03), the "neutral" of the light family. Even the Bare Linen skews a little yellow. It's not your average neutral, at all. So when in doubt with shade matching, if you are a cool tone, don't go for Neutral. I could have easily also probably worn Bare Shell (02) the only "cool" tone in the light category of shades.Another bonus, and a major thumbs up on the formulation is that the SPF 20 (and the product) are truly "weightless." A lot of products say that, but they're not. We've all tried moisturizers and other products with SPF, I have, one that's from a great company that also has an SPF that is also a physical block and natural. I could "feel" that product on my skin, and sometimes, no matter how hard a company tries, any moisturizer with SPF will also have a kind of smell to it as well.Bare Minerals, Bare Skin Liquid Serum Foundation, is truly weightless, fragrance free, even with the SPF you can't "feel" it, but it has to be a good match for your skin. For me, that means not at all even the slightest bit dry, combination or sensitive. But if you have skin like mine, that is great with other products from BE, the only way you'll know if this works for you, is to try it first. I suggest going to a boutique (if you can), I though I haven't had one done, get a "Make Under." That way you can wear the product for a day and see if it works for you.I will continue to use my Bare Mineral Original Foundation, and many other products from BE!Peace and Beauty! « less…
Longlasting, glowy, hydrating
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…
Blends well, hydrating, low coverage
This is the BEST foundation I have ever used for my dry skin! Such a light, glowy, and good coverage cream. The first base I’ve used that doesn’t want to cling to my dry patches - so worth the higher end cost!…
Compared to other tinted moisturizers, the ingredients in this product are about as safe as the average product.
