bareMinerals – bareSkin Pure Brightening Serum Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 20 (Bare Cream – 05)

Online Description:

What it is:
A breakthrough tone-correcting mineral foundation and skin care serum in one.
What it does:
Created with exceptional purity in mind, this ultrathin, skin-perfecting fluid provides seamless adjustable coverage, a natural finish, and the look and feel of beautiful skin while delivering a noticeably brighter, more youthful appearance—it’s like nothing you’ve ever felt before.

My Thoughts:

Not a fan. This product oxidizes faster and darker than any product I’ve ever used. It doesn’t feel good on the skin and I don’t get that sense of breathability on my skin. On the plus side, the color is opaque so the coverage is good, but the challenge is finding the shade you need for yourself when you’re in the store. It comes out way more olive than the color swatch book they use on you shows so it’s very deceiving. It doesn’t blend well but that may have to do with me not shaking the product enough; I don’t know. That is one thing about this product, you need to shake it really well because when it comes out, it is very fluid and will run down your hand if you don’t control how much comes out.

Texture?                              Liquid; Gritty and very dirt-like once it dries on your skin when you’re trying to blend.

Scent?                                   Not good. I can’t put my finger on what kind of smell it has, all I can say is it isn’t pleasant for me. It’s not perfume-y, floral, or the usual references, it’s just not the best smell.

Recommend?                    Nope. Never. Sorry, I’m not sorry.

Repurchase?                     Definitely not.

Retail:                                  $29.50

Size:                                      1 fl. oz.
