No - Made every pore on my face obvious
1 star1 star1 star1 star1 star

I tried the foundation powder twice. It’s very cakey and the fairest color had a yellow base. Made every pore on my face obvious. The powder settled in my very fine lines and magnified those lines even more. I applied it with a makeup brush and sponge & neither type of application helped. It’ll work as a spot concealer with moisturizer first and powdering the “spot” on top of the moisturizer.

No - not for paler girls

If you have really pale skin like I do, bare minerals foundation is not for you. Their lightest tone was much too dark for my skin. nothing against the effectiveness of the product, just not for fellow light skinned ladies like me.

No - What a disaster for makeup
1 star1 star1 star1 star1 star

I purchased this and used it for 4 weeks before I couldn’t stand the mess it was making of my skin, it was cakey and dry looking and so very fake colored it made me look like a corpse. I have never had so many skin issues as I did using this product.

I agree with all the other reviews. I’ve been using Bare Minerals for over 5 years. This is a great product. One of the “very few” products on TV that actualy does all it promises. I have sensitive skin specially around the eyes & have combination skin – although a bit more dry now in my middle years and this product works great. When you ware it makes your skin satiny smooth & even tone and gives a nice glow to the skin. It is very light. I really recommend this product to everyone.

I have been using this makeup for over 5 years and love it. It works out to be about 3 months worth in one of the larger containers. So the money is well-spent

I have tried many make-up products but this is one of the better foundations that I have tried. I normally shy away from powders because they tend to settle in the fine lines but this product does not. I have very dry skin and when I use liquid foundations my skin flakes. I have not had this problem since I have been using this. I have been using for about 3 yrs now.

Yes - Performs As Advertised
4 stars4 stars4 stars4 stars4 stars

I’ve been using this brand for many years with zero complaints. Does all it promises. My skin is so much clearer, and the texture with the powder makes it feel smooth as silk. Always natural looking in color. Even my teen uses this daily, and her skin is so clear her doctor asked what we use to keep her face blemish-free. Take the time to learn the simple application steps for fab results. Worth the $$$.

I have been using Bare Minerals for the past 3 years and will forever. I have always had a very oily complexion and now I don’t end up with a shiny face every day. I no longer have breakouts on my face, either. The minerals really do leave my skin a very smooth and natural looking texture. I use the foundation and mineral veil every day. I also use the blush product called Warmth.
