Q & As

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 9 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Only foundation I use. I've been using bareMinerals foundation now for some years. The powder formula gives excellent coverage and is suitable for my sensitive skin. Love bareMinerals products generally. I mix Medium Tan and Medium Beige for my perfect colour. Please also note this is the 6g pot size. This is not mentioned in the product description. 03 November 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by brilliant coverage best thing I ever tried, I am definitely hooked and will definitely buy again 18 August 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect for my sin I have been using Bare Minerals for a couple of years now and find it perfect for my skin. It gives enough coveragefor a natural look, but the important thing for me is, that unlike liquid foundations, it is light and not greasy, you dont know you are wearing i. My only downside is , why oh why are you constantly out of stock. If a product is so popular surely you should be able to meet your demand. Please order more. 17 April 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Bare Minerals the best Worth getting colour matched to get perfect skin tone. Brilliant - covers blemishes & looks really good 27 January 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best ever foundation Perfect flawless coverage that looks totally natural 11 November 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Awful!!!!!!!! One star is even too high a rating for this awful product. Please don't waste your money unless you want huge pores, dry skin and visible lines and break outs. Not to mention the high SPF meaning your face will look white compared to your body in photos due to the titanium dioxide. I have been a makeup artist for years and this is one of the worst things I've ever put on my clients skin. 28 April 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best foundation i've ever used I used to use Clinique but found that my skin was getting quite clogged up and that you could always tell I was wearing the foundation. Have been using Bare Minerals for about 2 years and all of my acne scars have gone and I rarely get spots. It feels and looks natural, so i'm really happy with it. Especially since liquid foundation would never match me perfectly! 15 July 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Less is more! This product takes a little getting used to! If you use your usual amount of foundation under it, it will cake. If you use no foundation, there is not much coverage. But if you use less of everything, including this product, your makeup should last all day. When I 'got the measure of it' I found that a light dip with my powder brush, then dab the brush onto a tissue, and blend blend blend, in circular motions leaves a fresh and dewy finish that lasts from dawn till dusk You can go back to the tissue if you need to, but resist the temptation to 'double dip' into the product pot I also wish I had bought a slightly more 'colourful shade than the one I bought, because using so little eliminates the 'powdered' look, so unflattering for older skin, but a little more 'colour' might have been even better. I think it will last for ages...which makes it very good value...and less of all other products ( makeup base, foundation, moisturiser etc)...results in less cost, less make-up and a younger, fresher complexion. A very nice product, once you get used to it.. 23 June 2012
