Review of Bare Minerals Original Foundation, Concealer and Beautiful Finish brush….

I have wanted to try Bare Minerals foundation for a while, as it seems like a very healthy type of make-up that will actually improve the appearance of the skin if used over time.

The Assistant was very helpful and matched the right shade for my skin, and there are 30 shades to choose from, which is fantastic.  To get the best results, I decided to buy the foundation brush Bare Minerals have designed specifically to apply the powder foundation.  To get the best results, I also got the concealer so that I knew the products would not be fighting each other.

Bare Minerals Correcting Concealer SPF 20 Light 2 £21

This concealer is quite a creamy consistency and covers very well.  It drys to a soft powdery finish.  I found the colour was great and it is good to have a concealer that has an SPF of 20.

Bare Minerals Beautiful Finish Foundation Brush £26

I have to say that this is a great brush – the hairs on the inner part of the brush are very densely packed, and the longer hairs around them are longer and more flexible.

Bare Minerals Original Foundation SPF 15 £27

If have tried to get on with this foundation, in order to give it a fair and accurate review, but I really don’t like it on my skin.  I say my skin, because in fairness, this foundation has had to deal with a mature, dehydrated and pigmented skin.  I found it did look patchy and dry, and made any larger pores look much worse.  In fact, I had to remove it every time I used because I really didn’t like it at all.  I was disappointed to say the least as these are quite expensive products.

I will say in Bare Minerals defence, that I am sure on a young and very smooth skin, this would look lovely.  The Assistant said she was wearing this foundation, and her skin looked gorgeous.

So, to sum up – I definitely wouldn’t buy this foundation again, but I love the brush and will be using that for sure.  The concealer is fine, but £21 is very expensive, and there are better and cheaper on the market.

Hope all is well with all of you. 🙂
