Rated 5 out of 5 by BexyW Lovely liquid for a non foundation wearer
I am a non-liquid foundation wearer. Despite my best efforts and experimentation, I have always found liquid foundation a faff and have never stuck to using it, even from such leading brands as Bobbi Brown. I have also always hated the feeling of liquid foundation on my skin as other products have left me feeling 'painted' and unnatural.
My experience of BareSkin however is very different as it is easy to use and feels beautiful and light on the skin - not like make up at all. The effect is very natural and it just makes me look as I have really nice skin.
I'd advise only using small amounts and building up as putting on too much can leave it tacky and sitting heavily on the skin, which is horrible. I only ever do light coverage to even out my skin tone and use the matching concealer to cover spots.
I recommend applying with the brush, it doesn't go on as well with fingers, and also getting the matching powder, which somehow pulls it together and blurs imperfections.
Testament to how well this has worked for me is the fact that friends and family have commented on how good my skin looks when I'm wearing it - I have problematic skin with lots of residual scarring from spots. I can't comment on the products claim to brighten skin as I haven't been using it very long.
I don't use this everyday as I'm still very much a no make up / tinted moisturiser kind of girl, but am happy to use this when I want to make more of an effort.
My one plea is that QVC stocks a broader range of shades for non-caucasian skin tones. I have a golden tan skin tone and am bare tan in this range (which QVC doesn't stock), so I have to shop elsewhere :-(

This goes on extremely patchy and is not very easy to blend in - I had a bit of a shock when I saw myself in sunlight, there were patches everywhere. I couldn't believe how poor quality the product is. I'll be sending it back.

When I used this product it flaked off my skin and looked awful, l've also used the mineral foundation, this also looked bad. It looked dry and settled into the fine lines .Very disappointed.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Gavenia Not for me
bareMinerals was my first ever purchase from QVC and have used it ever since, I can't however get on with Bareskin. I've tried it every which way, with primer, without primer putting on with brush and putting on with hands. It seems to sit in my pores and fine lines no matter how I apply. I bought it as part of a TSV so kept the other items and gave the foundation to a friend at work who seems to like it. I shall be staying with the original foundation and complexion rescue.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Bpb53 I was hoping for better
I am a great fan of Bare Minerals and was eagerly awaiting this product, sadly, I found that for me I didn't get the result I was hoping for. This took me back to liquid foundations of the 1980's, I kept adding drops but didn't get the coverage expected, and more drops, and more drops. Back to Doll 10 for me.

Rated 1 out of 5 by happyshopper72 Awful
I have to start by saying im usually a huge bare minerals fan. HUGE. I bought this hoping it would be a better choice for the summer months. Lighter and less made up was the look I was going for. Old, wrinkly and parched was how it made me look. I am 43 with have oily spot prone skin. It's not the best but on the bright side I have little or no wrinkles. This product is the worst foundation I have ever used. I've never looked worse. It totally dried out my skin and I looked about 100 yrs old. At first I refused to belive it could be this bad so I tried it several times over various cream, potions, and primers and even just on bare skin. Same result every time. Hideous.

I'm so pleased I purchased this before reading other reviews. I'm lucky, insofar as, the beauty salon I go to only use bare minerals, so I received the perfectly match for my skin (something I do struggle to do myself...). Armed with the correct shade, I only need a few drops in that super soft brush and it covers like magic and feels amazing! I've finally found my ' happy ever after' foundation. Thank you bare minerals, please don't change the formulation of this serum foundation!
