Review: Bare Minerals “BareSkin” Pure Brightening Foundation!

As a longtime fan of Bare Minerals, I was certainly intrigued after hearing they had formulated the brand’s first liquid foundation!

Let’s take a look, shall we?

It comes in a cylindrical plastic container, with a hygienic dropper to dispense:

(Note: I was granted a sample at my local Sephora, thus the “tester” label!)

This foundation comes in 20 shades, from the fairest of the fair to ebony. (My shade, entitled “Bare Porcelain 01”, is the lightest.) Finding the right shade should not be a problem — for anyone!

This foundation, which must be shaken vigorously prior to application, goes on like a second skin. It provides a deliciously “clean” and gentle sensation, with a natural finish which does not look or feel as if you are even wearing foundation, all the while completely evening out skin tone. It initially leans more dewy than matte or even semi-matte, which adds to the authentic look. The coverage, which feels sheer, is actually medium, concealing most blemishes but insufficient for “problem” skin.

Upon first applying the foundation, I suspected that its dewy finish would turn oily as the day progressed. Yet I was wrong! The finish truly looked like my own skin (The name “BareSkin” is appropriate!) but remained slightly dewy and quite natural.

I just cannot say enough good things about this foundation. It is truly magical, suitable for most skin tones! Since it does not offer full coverage, however, it cannot conceal severe acne. It contains SPF 20, thus providing a healthy dose of sunscreen.

This product reminds me of L’Oreal “Magic Nude Liquid Powder” foundation, which I reviewed here — only better since the latter led to major oil in the T-zone later in the day.

“BareSkin” foundation is fantastic makeup — I’m definitely a fan! 🙂

Final Verdict: 4.5/5 Stars
