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.
NATURAL, LIGHTWEIGHT, LONG LASTING
I don't think I'll ever use another foundation! Seriously! After my breakouts with MAC & Cinema Secrets foundations, I was headed towards tinted moisturizers. Seeing how blemished my skin was after using other products, I needed great coverage without the irritation. I'd seen the infomercials but I just didn't believe. I went into my local Nordstrom & had a Beauty Ambassador test a look on me! I immediately loved the way this foundation lightly fell upon my face. It was full coverage without the weight! I felt natural, unlike I felt wearing MAC (which I loved) I was more happy with the fact that I was wearing pure minerals. I have been using BE Matte foundation for only about 6-7 months so far but NO breakouts, (& I've both slept & worked out in it, unintentionally) NO irritation. Because I'm oily, by the end of the day, or slightly earlier, I do see a bit of a shine, but with a dust of the BE Mineral Veil, I'm back at normal!
No breakouts. My weekend makeup
Okay, I just said weekend makeup because that's the time I usually give myself a break for full coverage liquid foundation. This is my go-to foundation when I do errands- something that doesn't require me to cake on foundation, etc. With a kabuki brush, it's tap and blend- so easy. Since it's natural- based, I don't have problems with breakouts. I like that it's matte ( I have oily skin) and built- in SPF. Multi-tasking in one.
My go-to foundation ATM
This has been my foundation of choice for awhile now. I love the matte finish and keeps my face looking oil free all day. This shade is perfect for my skin tone, (Summer and Winter!) After seeing BareMinerals infomercials, I thought I could use this product as a concealer too, sadly it doesn't build up to the coverage I want. Also, when I apply it to a newly washed face it feels a little drying and heavy on my skin but that goes away pretty quickly. Overall, works great for me, Love it! :D
