Lasting Coverage!

Pros: long lasting, great coverage
I have been a Bare Minerals fan for long time. While I do love the powder foundation, it didn't seem to have the all-day staying power that this new Bare Skin Foundation does. I feel you do need to apply a good moisturizer and I also use the a Prime Time primer, which I think really helps to apply the foundation and apply a good hold. Also, a little goes a long way. I do use the "medium" Bare Minerals powder foundation as a spot concealer before applying the foundation, since it matches my skin tone perfectly. I use the 06 foundation and can also use 07 as well, although 06 is more of a perfect match. I feel it has brightened my completion a little and my lines do not show as much, as well.
Great job on this foundation!

Which is better for aging skin in the liquid form? Bare skin or buxom foundation?
I am 55 years old and have used your famous powder foundation, plus other products for several years now. However due to lots of sun damage the powder is really setting into my lines and wrinkles. I have been wishing for a liquid line from your company! Thank you. Haven't bought it yet. Over the past several years I have sadly developed large pores, and hormonal chin acne. I also have very yellow undertones to my olive skin
So I am curious as to what color to choose. Also I am not giving up on the regular bare mineral kit because I still love the products. I have been wearing medium, I am wondering if medium beige matte might be better for me. Now that I am not in the sun, my skin is a shade lighter. Also would appreciate advice advice on the cleanser and treatment for large pores. Thank you so very much! Gratefully, Claudette Granata :)
I have used Bare Minerals for many, many years, but recently switched to Bare Skin and absolutely love it. I will be 51 in October, and I too, have sun damaged skin. While I haven't used Buxom foundation, I feel the Bare Skin has brightened my skin a little and my lines look less prominent. I do apply a good moisturizer all over my face and neck, then apply the Prime Time primer, and I think that is the key to having good results with the Bare Skin (besides shaking the bottle very well)! I also used the "medium" Bare Minerals powder foundation to cover some age spots and redness on my nose and chin, right before I apply the Bare Skin. Also, I felt like the Bare Minerals foundation did not last all day, but the Bare Skin does. I hope this helps you in your decision!

Too liquidy?
I've had my bareskin foundation for a couple of months now and have always shaken it before applying each drop. However, now when I shake it and twist off the cap it appears to be so liquidy that the foundation leaks down the side of the bottle and oozes quickly out the top instead of forming nice individual drops. Any suggestions on how/if this can be remedied? Thanks!
Try taking the cap off and keeping your finger on the lid when shaking, then slowly tip the bottle until just a drop come out and be sure to shake very well. I find it is easier that way than to keep the lid on while shaking. A tiny amount always runs over the sides of the top, but I just swipe the brush over it to grab it all, and use that for a little extra coverage on a scar on my neck area.
