Best Foundation I've ever used.
For years I have struggled with trying to find a good foundation that wouldn't smear almost completely off my face half way through the day due to my oily skin. But for the longest time I couldn't allow myself to spend the higher prices for make up and instead bought drug store make up which all failed horribly. I'm so glad I decided to switch to Bare Minerals. It's not cheap but it does exactly what I want it to do and barely have to touch it up at all. I do recomend using a moisturizer and a primer underneath this foundation though. You will have to use way less product than using it without them I've found. I also recomend a concealer underneath if you are looking for full coverage. It covers well by itself, but the concealer helps cover redness and any imperfections and gives a totally flawless look. Also doesn't break my skin out and does do a lot to control oil unlike other make ups. With using clean and clear oil blotting sheets and doing light touch ups like twice, I kept this make up on and looking flawless for more than 12 hours just today while attending an event held several hours away.
THE MOST AMAZING CREATION
I never really wore foundation before because I felt like any products I would use would make me look orange. I tried this about 3 years ago and fell in love from the start! It is so natural and looks like YOUR skin. It just covers what it needs to cover. I have the lightest shade and it matches perfectly on my skin. I like the ORIGINAL formula for winter, and the MATTE formula for summer because of the heat/my oily skin during this time. All in all, I think everyone should use this product. It has amazing coverage and makes you look healthy and radiant.
Really?! I was not expecting this product to be so amazing, I thought MAC's MSFN was something to brag about. I trashed it after a week of using my BareMinerals foundation.This product is worth it and not as costly as MAC, Bobbi Brown or Nars. I have oily skin so i still use a primer for a little boost of insurance.
tried and love it!
i tried this product because my sister recommended it and it was 4years ago. i forgot the price, i guess around 20 something. my skin is combination during winter, and oily during summer lol since i live in 4season country now. i've been looking for this powder when i run out of it, even tried YSL and cost me almost usd100 but i still love bareminerals powder! really light, no need too much powder, make my skin look flawless! i even have 3 in my makeup case now, dont want to change to other product!
Medium Coverage, Smooth Finish
I really like Bare Minerals. They have such a huge array of shades! I am Filipino, with combination skin. I get very oily in spots and very very dry patchy spots, so I truly have combination skin and this was a great balance. Since this is matte, it helped hide the shine I would get from my oily skin, but it wasn't drying like some other powders, which was nice for my patchy dry spots.
best foundation ever.
I started using this foundation about two years ago and the quality is beyond amazing.
it definitely covers up any blemishes and you can easily build it up to cover whatever else needed. its light and doesn't cake or crack on me! you put it on and it covers your pores and it just gives you a flawless finish. plus its helped out my skin and no break outs what so ever! I recommend this product to anyone who will splurge on foundation.
I have been using the Bare Minerals foundation for over 5 years...due to my oily skin I switched to the matte formula, and love it! I use the concealer brush and only apply the foundation to the areas needed. Seems to stay on longer with a foundation primer. You can layer as much of the Bare Minerals as needed...never looks thick or cakey.
MAC's mineralized skinfinish natural is better quality
I used this for years and it is somewhat worth the hype, especially since it was created a couple years before there were so many mineral products on the market. My personal problem with it is that it oxidizes besides the lightest color not being light enough for my skin. There is a definite yellow undertone to all the colors so it won't look neutral. It was also caking on the sides of my nostrils and chin. It IS very good for your skin (mac mineralize doesnt claim that) but it just doesnt look as good as this new product I've found, so I must rate it down.
