Pros: incredibe
I bought this makeup after deciding, at 22, I needed to invest in more expensive makeup because the stuff I was using was clearly not working. I had some kind of acne coming up every day, so although it certainly wasn't as bad as I've seen on others, it was exhausting to deal with. Some days I just would turn down social events because I felt embarrassed if I was having a particularly bad day with it.
Anyway, so after some research and wanting to get rid of the chemicals in my makeup since I have extremely sensitive skin, I went into a Sephora and had an employee pick the right colour for me. I've been using it for three weeks now, and I seriously cannot believe the difference. Not only does my skin look glorious while wearing it, I am seeing a drastic improvement in my complexion. I would say my breakouts have probably decreased by at least 50% - and it seems to be getting better and better every day. And I have never owned makeup that makes me 'glow.'
Also a note for people wondering about how long this will last you considering the price and size of the container. I've had it for three weeks and I use it every day and I can hardly notice a difference in the amount inside. So I'd say at this point I'm expecting it to last at least 8 weeks before I need a new one - it is so worth the investment anyway.
This has given me so much more confidence. THANK YOU, Bare Minerals.

Is this good coverage foundation?
Hi,
Unfortunately I don't have perfect skin, I have blackheads and a few spots. So I was wondering if I should purchase this particular type of foundation? Is it good coverage and will It disguise all my imperfections?
Thanks
Hi there,

It sounds like we have really similar skin problems. I personally love this foundation, although I should say it is not what I'd call "full coverage." But, I hate full coverage. It is the perfect balance between coverage and still looking natural. It greatly reduces visibility of imperfections without making it obvious that you're wearing makeup. It's a nice natural look, and the best for me especially with the skin problems is that is truly lasts 8-10 hour days.

Good luck in your choice!

How long does it last?
I really want to try this foundation but I'm worried it won't last. It's expensive so if it's only going to last a couple weeks I don't think it's worth it. I have minimal acne & blackheads so I won't use ALOT.
Hi there,

I was worried about the same thing. If you use it properly (ie. don't overuse the amount each application) you should be fine. I've had mine for over three weeks and have used it every day and I can't even tell a difference in the amount inside. I am expecting it to last at least 8 weeks if not more, by the look of it. In my opinion this was totally worth the investment - just make sure you get shown how to properly apply it on your face and with the right brush. Makes a huge difference! Enjoy!
