“Fairly good.”

Written on: 26/12/2013

I purchased the bare minerals starter kit because I have pretty bad acne and I wanted a foundation that was going to cover this well but that didn't agitate the acne further or make my skin more oily. In the starter pack I received a 'get started' DVD which I didn't find particularly helpful because it was tricky to match up the product that the lady demonstrating was using with my product. (the kit contains 4 different foundation products). However, the foundations were creamy and stay well… Read Full Review

“supposedly Good but very bad service. ”

Written on: 12/07/2013

I have seen good results on the product on two of my sister's faces. Decided to try it while I was in London(live in Nigeria). Unfortunately I had a very bad service from one of the makeup artists in debenhams who sold a colour far darker than my fair complexion and told me that was all they got because she was in a hurry to leave. Ended up buying it and it made my face very dark unfortunately. Went to the internet and saw so many colours she would have tried on me which she didnt do. So… Read Full Review

“Bare Minerals - not so good”

Bare Minerals made me break out --- I have good skin considering my age (the skin is oily in spots but otherwise good) --- Bare Minerals made my skin look patchy when it broke out; do not use this product. … Read Full Review

“Ruined my skin!!”

Written on: 06/05/2013 by holstb03 (1 review written)

I ordered a free trial of bare minerals off of the radio. I thought I was treating myself to some high end make up that supposedly is very healthy for your skin. A few days after using the foundation and mineral veil, my skin was becoming increasingly dry and scaly. Then one morning I woke up and could barely open my left eye. Both eyelids were swollen and red. It's been a week and a half since that incident and I STILL have red circles around my eyes. My skin is so dry and itchy I can barely… Read Full Review

“Please read! (Esp if you have mixed race or oily skin!!)”

Written on: 16/01/2012 by utopiairis (2 reviews written)

First I should just say that I am VERY critical of cosmetic products. I love make up and experimenting with new things and wear at least some make up every day but I get sick of cosmetic companies making over the top claims about products which don't live up to the hype at all. Also I am on a VERY tight budget so I watch a lot of beauty blogs and read lots of reviews before I get new things. In the last year or so I noticed little thread veins appearing on my face and more stubborn blemishes… Read Full Review

“Creamy??? Not my definition ... nor the dictionary's!”

Written on: 30/11/2011 by FairMaiden (1 review written)

I have dry skin and am borderline anaemic, so moisture and good coverage are essential. My skin, although fair, is very good for a 44 year old - no blemishes and smooth, but the inner corners of my eyes are very discoloured (grey/purple) and I have dark areas beneath both eyes (nearest the nose). I applied the Prime Time over my Eight Hour Creme. My skin was still very dewey from the creme (dewey being the look I love), but once I started to buff the recommended amount of mineral foundation… Read Full Review

“Wow - it has me converted”

Written on: 08/11/2011 by Misty42 (1 review written)

I have been a girl pretty scared by make-up, indeed it was the thing that stressed me most about the pending wedding day! However, after trying a few brands (both starting with C) I had a go at Bare Minerals. What a difference, it covered but didn't clog! So much so, my beautician has converted from Cl....s to this and that's after many many years of using the product. I have pretty good skin so don't need much help but she and my mum have split veins and this covered no problem. It feels… Read Full Review

“Bare Minerals Foundations- GREAT FOR...”

Written on: 02/08/2011

First of all, I would like to begin by saying I have tried all different types of foundation over the years in the need of trying to camoflage acne and blemishes, as well as to gain a perfect natural look, and this product is truly FANTASTIC. As a health conscious 19 year old, I rejoiced in a product that is 'so good for your skin you can sleep in it' as well as being made up of skin friendly minerals. In the 8 months I have been using these products, I have noticed a dramatic difference in my… Read Full Review

“great purchase!”

Written on: 21/06/2011 by anhle (1 review written)

i discovered bare minerals whilst in new york, after seeing it on tv alot back in the uk i'd thought i'll give it a try and brought the starter kit for fair skin. my skin is fair/yellow olive skin and i was amazed how it blended well with my natural colour. up until today it has nearly been 10 months since i brought it and im just about finished with the powder. i found it was VERY light weight on my skin and when i do wear liquid foundation(MAC) it really feels as if i got a mask on and i… Read Full Review

“Once you try this, you won't use anything else.”

Written on: 27/05/2011 by suzieQ89 (2 reviews written)

Found out about Bare Minerals Make-up by mistake. I was walking past the counter in Debenhams, when a girl asked if I would let her try this on my skin. I was in a hurry, but said it would be fine. I am so glad I stopped. My skin looked better straight away, and the foundation stayed on all day. I love this make-up. I have used this now for about seven or eight months, and I can honestly say it's the best I have ever used. My foundation was finished at one point, and I had to use my original… Read Full Review

“This is terrible, I don't understand what all the fuss...”

Written on: 25/05/2011 by sushi0chester (1 review written)

This is the first time I have tried this make-up. I got the trial starter kit with foundation, bisque, mineral veil and brushes. I sometimes suffer from breakouts and bad skin so I thought I'd try this and it is awful. It hardly covers the skin and when I applied it more over the blemishes it just looked patchy, not a good look. I don't understand what everybody is raving about. If you have perfect skin to begin with then this is for you, but if you suffer from breakouts don't bother. It's… Read Full Review

i can definitely assure you that you are doing it wrong,I work for this company and have never had a complaint about patchyness. Your best bet is to either watch the DVD that comes in the GSK or pop down to your nearest counter where someone will be more than happy to show you how to apply it
Hope this helps

Bare minerals is absolutley amazing! Ive always been a liquid foundation girl and until now had never ever used powder in my life. But when i saw my friend apply it I was amazed by it but quite unsure if i would ever use it myself. I booked in for a free makeover still really unsure and i walked out of there feeling confident and my skin never looked better. I have really really oily skin and quite bad spots on my forehead but ever since using bare minerals my skin isnt half as oily and the… Read Full Review

Written on: 28/10/2010

I first became aware of bare minerals when I noticed how good a friends skin looked one day and she told me she'd been using a sample. I brought the starter kit and it is AMAZING. I have some pretty annoying scarring from spots and this covers it perfectly. It also makes me look so much healthier, and feels so much nicer then the bobbi brown tinted moistiriser i was using before. In the kit there was a really great product called warmth and the dvd tells you how to apply this, it gives a really… Read Full Review

My interest in Mineral makeup was there for several reasons the main two reasons were a) Mineral Makeup is better for your skin and helps improve your skin unlike regular makeup and b) It looks more Natural. Yes I saw the infomercials and it sparked a major interest. This interest grew deeper as friend#1 talked about Sheer Cover and… Read Full Review

Written on: 13/08/2010

I was intrigued by this product when I saw it and due to the advertising saying it was good for people with problem skin I thought I'd have a go. I enjoyed putting it on as you have to take a little time making sure you don't overload the brush. I wasn't convinced about the coverage and blemishes were still visible. I felt the need to keep applying it throughout the day as I felt that my skin became oily and then looked like I had no make up on at all. I kept at it but my acne which has… Read Full Review

Written on: 28/06/2010

I purchased the get started kit - and decided to get the primer as well - it is clear that you need that with a powdery product. Having been a liquid foundation girl all my life I did not think the powder would be so good - it really is. I had been a bit worried with the powder getting into my fine wrinkles / caking a bit with sweat and was unsure whether I would buy again, until one afternoon I threw it all on with haste - went out to meet friends and was told (unprompted) 'your skin looks… Read Full Review
