In May 2014, I went to my first Generation Beauty. I received so much goodies.
I took this picture from my Instagram. I already reviewed Benefit They're Real! Mascara (middle), bareMinerals Lipstick in Make Your Move (bottom right), China Glaze in Neon & On & On (top middle), Josie Maran Model Citizen Whipped Argan Oil Body Butter (bottom left), Laneige BB Cushion (left), and L.A. Girl ColorPop in Lovely (top middle).
bareMinerals foundation and brush. For this post, I will review the foundation on the top.
bareMinerals BareSkin Pure Brightening Serum Foundation SPF20 in #04 Bare Ivory
Where to purchase: ULTA, Sephora, department stores, and online at bareescentuals.com
Price: $29 for 30 mL/ 1 fl oz
Made in USA
Description on the package: A breakthrough tone correcting mineral foundation and skincare serum in one. Created with exceptional purity in mind, this ultra-thin, skin-perfecting fluid provides seamless, adjustable coverage, a natural finish and the look and feel of beautiful bare skin while delivering a more noticeably brighter, youthful appearance. Made with the bare minimum ingredients and formulated without water, oil, silicone, parabens or fragrance. It's like nothing you've ever felt before.
Thoughts: When I received this product, I was extremely excited. I heard great things about this product and at the time, I was stoke to get a new product. Of course, it's not new now. I have a tendency to use one face product at a time.

Now for my overall opinion... First of all, it has a slight scent. I guess it's how all foundation smells but it doesn't bother me. I only notice the scent the first couple of seconds during application. Secondly, the consistency of the product is on the light side. I think it's thin and the coverage is in-between thin to medium. With that said, it's easy to apply. They gave us a brush that is recommended with the foundation. I used it several times in the beginning and did not like it much. I will review the brush in the future. Then I moved to Beauty Blender type of sponges. It's extremely easy to use and blends well. Third, like I said the coverage is in-between thin to medium. It doesn't cover my freckles, dark spots, and acne that well but it gives me a glow. My skin looks youthful and smooth. Basically, it's more a tint than a foundation in my opinion. Also, you need to shake the bottle before using. If you don't, there was some separation. I believe the foundation separated from the serum but not too sure. I just noticed separation of color from oil. Lastly, it lasts all day on me. It might be because I have dry skin. Most face products last all day. I can see people with oily skin needing to reapply. This is good for people who wants tinted glow.
