I am a massive BM fan and I am prone to the odd breakout and I was really looking forward to trying this foundation. I ordered this in 'Silk' as advised by SJ on air as I wear Medium Beige in the Original foundation. The colour was very wrong and had a very orange look. I tried it with some false tan in the end so I could at least test the formula. Considering this product is designed to work with blemishes, it has very little coverage and it takes a long time to build up. It went quite patchy throughout the day, despite me using the blemish gel underneath and had pretty much all come off by the time I finished work. The brush is really nice and the foundation delivery system is really great - love to see this incorporated into the Original formula.

This is the perfect bareMinerals foundation for me and I have tried them all over the last 15 years or so. I am 38 and I still get hormonal breakouts. When they occur, I find liquid foundations unsuitable for me and even the bareMinerals Original too shiny. I do wear primer under every type I use. The feel of this foundation is very similar to the Pure Transformation Night Treatment which also goes on matt and is very soothing.
The staying power of this foundation is excellent. I cannot rate it highly enough. The coverage is excellent yet still very natural looking.
I hope QVC put a better video clip onto the product page as the presentation genuinely doesn't do it justice!
I wear medium beige in Original, Bare Beige in bareskin and in this one I bought Clearly Silk which is perfect for me.

I have tan, oily, Indian skin with yellow undertones that can be prone to periodical hormonal breakouts. I like natural makeup.
I love bare minerals for many years and have all their foundations. This is the best one for me.
I use medium tan in the original, Tan in the Complexion rescue, Sand in Serum foundation.
I have the shade Sand and I find this is the best colour match for me in all the BM foundations. Others can be to pinky or to yellow, Sand is on the yellow side but not a sickly yellow more of a brightening shade.
i find that this lasts on me, it is quick and easy to use with the supplied brush. It stays the same colour throughout the day. It looks very natural on me.This is one of my everyday work foundations especially when I have breakouts.
I still get oily halfway throughout the day if I don't use a primer and even still then.

Rated 5 out of 5 by felinesfriend Excellent product
I find this powder, delivery system and brush to be BareMineral's top product (and I own most of their products)! I have it in 'Clearly Cream' (I am Fair in LG B&B) but may need to change for summer.
It goes on effortlessly with the marvelous brush and leaves my skin smooth and poreless. It seems to clear up any little blemishes or red marks too.
I use it in conjunction with Complexion Perfection which is also brilliant!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Hazell Good & bad points
I ordered this as i am a bm user and have been for many years.
Have always been medium beige in original so i ordered silk as advised by sj.
I do suffer from hormonal break outs so i was itching too try this n really wanted too love it.
The good points are it definately does help the break outs ..even after only 2 uses...
The compact itself is genious and the brush makes it go on better than other brushes i have.
The only bad but its a major is the colour..like other reviews its definately got orange tinge too it..
Abit like fake tan orange and i HATE fake tan.
If bm review the colours too match the original i will buy this for a long time coming.
I will keep trying different things too tone down the colour and see if i can make it work.
Please bm listen too your customers..
Review the shades.

I would recommend getting shade matched for this as I am 250 in ready and natural in bareskin and complexion rescue so assumed I would be silk....It looked caked and too dark so sent it back. I then went and got shade matched and have been told I am cream.....this colour. Suits me perfectly and can be built up for better coverage I also use over complexion rescue which works well.
I use this with the blemish remedy gel primer and have seen an improvement in the achne I have suffered with for years
I would definitely suggest getting shade matched before you right the product off if you have tried it and not keen

Love the color of this product. Love the packaging as well so easy to put on. Great little brush. In fact if your normal powder in the lock box was made like this box I would be well pleased.
Buying more of these.

Wow this foundation is Amazing. I do suffer from blocked pores.
Spots have always been my cross to bare all my life. I'm 44 now 45 this year and I still have spots greasy skin.
No wrinkles though which I surpose is the plus side to this.
Anyway I have had a spot on my nose for about a week. It's a killer of a spot. I've cleansed tones as usual but nothing would shift it. Until I remembered I had this foundation.
I used it once and woke this morning and. Oh my word it's going. No redness no sore part nothing just some flaky skin where is was.
Totally amazed at how fast it worked.
I did buy from qvc because at the time it wasn't available on counter plus it comes with a soft beautiful brush.
Lady's don't think it's just another foundation Bare Minerals are trying to push on us. Because this is worth every penny.
So glad I have this and never be without it.
