As an avid lover of all things Bare Minerals, I of course had to try the new Bareskin foundation.
Here are the basics:
What it is:
A breakthrough tone-correcting mineral foundation and skincare 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.
What it is formulated WITHOUT:
I think it is funny that Bare Minerals is insisting that the new foundation is “serum” and NOT foundation. This is similar to what they have done in the past with the Original, Matte and READY Foundation. T-Shirts were created that called foundation an “F-word” and “I’m not wearing foundation” – the lingo has always set them apart, but at times borders on the ridiculous. In my experience, Original and Matte Foundations were to be called “loose minerals” and the READY was to be referred to as “solid minerals” and NOT pressed powder.
This was my experience with the Bareskin Foundation -
It is a liquid foundation. I would not buy it and use it like a serum.
The color turns (also known as oxidizing) on your skin, so you want to make sure you get matched and wait a few minutes to see if the color turns before you make a decision. It comes in 20 shades so you are bound to find the right one.
It feels light on the skin and my skin also felt more a little more hydrated.
I have only tried a sample and worn it once but I do plan on purchasing a full bottle here soon.
The average Bare Minerals consumer will have difficulty wearing this foundation because the look and feel is so different than wearing a powder. After putting it on, I had a hard time not wanting to put on at minimum the Mineral Veil.
Hope those thoughts help – go stop by a Boutique or your local retailer (Sephora, Ulta, Macy’s) and try it out!
