Purchased this foundation for a holiday to Bali wanting a lightweight easy to apply and wear base for the hot weather this product was the perfect choice application was easy using a flat top brush for buffing on and pressing into areas that need a bit more coverage I found it long lasting and reasonably transfer proof with a natural finish.

I just discovered this amazing mineral foundation at our new Mecca Maxima store. I love it so much, super easy to apply & makes my face look fabulous & glowing. Comes in a screw top pottle and a little goes along way & lasts all day. Feels lightweight on my skin and gives great coverage and the beauty of this product is you can choose to keep it mimium or build it up for more coverage. Works great at covering uneven skin tones while looking natural. This is the only mineral powder foundation that I have found not to dry out or set in my fine lines. I absolutely Love this product and can't wait to try other Bare Mineral products.
Mineral foundation is something I’ve used on and off for years but had never tried this one as I just stuck to the same brand. I am officially in love with Bare Minerals as I try more and more of their products I am shocked by the texture and colour pay off. I am the shade “Fairly Light” which actually seems quite dark in the pot but on my face it’s perfect.it buffs in really nicely and you can see the coverage instantly even with a small amount of product. I have very patchy skin with redness and pigment spots and this covered them nicely. This is not a full coverage foundation but can definitely be built up and looks great over a concealer. Although I prefer a heavier look during the week this is my new go to on the weekends and I’m hooked. It just feels like nothing on the skin and when I apply normal foundation on a Monday I notice how heavy it feels on my face. You know lately everyone is using the catch phrase “your skin but better”, this gives meaning to that phrase. This powder won’t wear as long as a liquid foundation but can definitely be touched up during the day. I definitely recommend using the mineral veil with it as it locks it in place and helps prevent shine.
I had tried lots of other brands of mineral powder before and they didn't have very good coverage, so I was quite sceptical to try this despite the rave reviews. However I was pleasantly surprised that the colour chosen for me didn't make me look like a ghost nor did it melt off my face. I have Fairly Light for winter and Medium Beige for summer.
Tips: Get a good kabuki brush to apply properly. And use a little powder blush on top to add some colour.
I have this foundation in Matte, in neutral dark shade. It gives an even all over coverage with a light weight feel. It is SP 15 so even better for the skin, to use with your daily sun care regime. I love how it doesnt cake or clump even when worn over other products, such as primer or concealer. Overall a nice, clean look with even skin tone and a matte finish.
After one of my favourite YouTubers raved about the great results she was getting after switching to Bareminerals original foundation. I had to try it!
I’ve been using Bareminerals for over a year and have found the product is gentle on my skin and doesn’t clog my pores. I can use this every day and find my skin doesn’t break out.
Packaging is sleek and kept in a plastic jar with the product safely behind a twisting lid. Great for travel, you know product is not going to risk seeping out.
Gently tap a small amount of product into the lid. Taking a small amount on your brush, giving it a small tap on the side of the lid before applying. Starting on your cheek in a circular motion buff the foundation into your skin. The more you do this the creamer the product becomes. You can apply more to get your desired coverage. If buffed correctly you will have a creamy, smooth, flawless finish that doesn’t look caked on.
The biggest draw card for me is the gentleness of this product. It is shiny like a disco ball like some mineral foundations can be. It doesn’t feel like I have make up on at all and my skin can breathe. I’ve noticed a huge difference in my skin since switching to this foundation and the added SPF is a huge advantage in our harsh climate.
Tips: Use a firm brush to buff. If a firm bush is not used the product will sit on skin and not melt in like it should. A little product goes along way - less is best.
I purchased this in a kit and found it amazing especially for work, it covered really well was easy to apply and looked great on. It didn't feel like I was wearing lots of makeup either yet couldn't see any flaws in my skin. Loved it. Purchasing it with the kit came with brushes which was handy.
I love this foundation, so easy and foolproof to apply, no need for a mirror! Evens out my skin tone and just looks better as the day goes on. Lasts forever too! It is very easy to colour match as they write a colour description on their website.
This is the first mineral foundation I have ever tried. After going through countless of reviews I was sold, went and got matched in the shade light (Im usually a C2 in Mac and 03ivory in Clinique even better). I have normal to dry skin, the first time I wore it just on top of my moisturiser and noticed that it cling to my dry spots. After that I used it with a thin layer of Nars Sheer Glow Foundation and the results were amazing. It provided a medium coverage and my friends complimented that it doesn't even look like I am wearing any foundation. Lasted for a good 7 hours without touch up. However, the T-zone do tend to get a little oily after a few hours.
Tips: Make sure to use a good moisturiser and either a BB cream/light foundation before applying the BareMinerals Orginal Foundation to provide more coverage and a dewy finish. Dust a thin layer of setting powder on the T-zone to prevent oiliness. Use a dense brush to apply the foundation to concentrate the product more. (I use the Real Techniques Expert Face Brush)
This was my first ever foray into makeup and it's this brand that got me hooked. This stuff buffs like a dream and the coverage is very buildable. It is also amazing for your skin.
I found it worked best about 20-30 minutes after moisturising and buffed in with a kabuki brush. I don't think I ever looked oily and it always looked very natural - one of the most natural finishes of a foundation I've ever come across.
We can thank my local day spa for getting both myself and my mother hooked on this, which reminds me, I better order mother some replacements while I'm logged into Sephora!
Tips: Kabuki. Tap, Swirl, Buff. It's that simple.
