I do not have sensitive skin.
I have white acne scars on my jaw, and dark spots on my cheeks, and it covers them all very well without looking made up, and without settling in my fine wrinkles.
Feels like you're not wearing makeup at all but leaves you skin looking smooth and even.

As a makeup artist I have been doing makeup for weddings and special events for almost nine years now.

A vow to my clients is that I will never put anything on their face that I have not tried myself. Therefore, when clients started asking about bare minerals and whether I would recommend it or not I felt obligated to try it out.

When I try "new" products I put them through a volley of tests.

The first test I put it through I call the "photograph" test.

Some makeups have reflective agents in them that reflect bright likes such as the flash from a camera. While they look normal and well blended in normal lighting conditions they can look comically white in photographs were a flash is used. When doing makeup for weddings it is ESSENTIAL that the makeups I use DO NOT have reflective agents.

I took a photograph of my natural skin in normal lighting, then used a flash. I put on the BM foundation, came back and took two more photographs: one in normal lighting with no flash, one with a flash. I'm pleased to announce that bare minerals DID pass the photograph test.

My second test is the oil test. I have VERY oily skin and so do many of my clients. If it won't last all day on my skin, how can I expect it to last all day on the skin of a laughing, hugging, drinking, dancing, partying, kissing bride. I was happy to announce that it DID last a BIT longer than other foundations I have used in the past but it did not last as long as I would have liked. Touch ups during the day are essential to all-day wear (or a very good oil-control powder).

I really liked the way it looked and felt on my own skin but there are clients that I would NOT recommend it for.

I have tried this product and found it wanting. I agree with many of the reviewers that it feels light and silky and certainly looks like you have no makeup on at all. Unfortunately, I can look like I have no makeup on at all by simply wearing no makeup. With my older (early 50's) skin, I find that it really did not help in covering/hiding fine lines, dark(ish) circles under my eyes, or facial discoloration and the luminous quality of the powders actually seems to highlight wrinkles and lines rather than hide them. If I have to use a concealer makeup to aid in hiding these imperfections, I feel I might as well buy another type of makeup. On younger skin, I can well imagine this makeup could be quite lovely but I don't recommend it for the more mature set.

In an update to this review, based on some of the responses to my post, I decided (since I still had the makup!) to give it one more try and wear it for a week or so. It could be my skin type, but I still feel the "luminosity" of the makup only managed to accentuate, not hide, the fine lines around my eyes and mouth. Also, after wearing the makup daily for a little over a week, I found that it became increasingly itchy on my skin. I developed a few reddish patches on the more sensitive areas of my face (mainly around the eye area). I finally gave it away to a young person who will hopefully have better luck with it!

I have never worn foundation in my life. I hated being able to feel it on there, & I hated the effort of washing it off every night & how long it took to put on. This has solved all those problems. Applying the foundation takes maybe 30 seconds. I don't feel like I have anything on my face at all. Family was telling me how nice I looked, but when I told them I was wearing foundation they were surpised. It looked so natural. And this stuff won't hurt your skin if you leave in on at night. So no big hassle when you're tired & want to go to bed. The starter kit is the way to go; I was going to try just the foundation & was glad I got the starter kit. It's a really good deal over buying the things seperately as well.

I'm in my 20s and have combination/semi-sensitive skin. I'm used to using makeup by Kose and Laura Mercier which has always worked well for me. I was very excited about Bare Escentuals Minerals foundation since it's "100% natural" and seemed like it would cut down on make-up application time.

After 2 days of using the Medium mineral foundation along with the mineral veil, I started to notice some redness on my skin, which is very strange since I rarely have breakouts like that. On the 3rd day, my skin not only felt like sandpaper, but red patches appeared on my forehead, cheeks, and chin area. There were also small whiteheads among the red patches, which became very itchy and course. I immediately stopped using the Bare Minerals product. Though my skin is starting to slowly heal, it is still red, irritated, and rough. Though I don't doubt that this product does wonders for some people, it had the opposite effect for me.

They state that it is made of 100% pure bareminerals and is free of talc, waxes, oil, etc. but they don't specifically state what is in it, which may potentially irritate your skin. Some mineral makeup contain bismuth oxychloride. Bismuth is "a by-product of lead and copper." Imagine having to buff/rub that into your skin and pores. It may well be a "natural" ingredient of the earth, but just not natural to be on your skin. That may have been the reason why my body apparently rejected this product, similar to many other customers who have used it.

This is just my opinion and my experience but I suggest that before you use this product all over your face, do a test (leave on a small area of skin and leave on for a good amount of time), to see if you react adversely to it.
