bareMinerals bareSkin Pure Brightening Serum Foundation

I’m always trying new foundations, especially when it comes to liquid foundation.  I’m a diehard Laura Mercier Mineral Powder SPF 15 fan, but I still like to have a trusty liquid option at hand.
I just recently finished a bottle of the fan favorite bareSkin Pure Brightening Serum Foundation in Bare Ivory 04.  When I purchased this product I also purchased the accompanying bareSkin Perfecting Face Brush.

At first I had mixed feelings on the bareSkin foundation, I thought it made me just a little too dewy.  My mom & my best friend also have this product, and they kind of felt the same way.  I remedied this problem by making sure I used my MAC Prep + Prime Transparent Finishing Powder, once I did that I looked nice & matte.  I really liked how easy it was to blend and apply the foundation, the color matched me well, and it’s super lightweight.
One downside I found was that the bareSkin foundation didn’t offer a whole lot of coverage, so I really only used this as a foundation on days when I had no blemishes or extra redness.  If you’re looking for a heavier coverage I’d try looking for something different.  If you’re looking for a more lightweight formula that will deliver a super glow-y and dewy finish (especially if you have dry skin) then bareSkin is definitely for you.
As far as the bareSkin Perfecting Brush goes, I really like it, but I don’t think it’s necessary at all for the use of the foundation.  The foundation is released like a dropper, and you’re supposed to drop two droplets into the top of the brush.  bareMinerals says that’s the only amount of foundation you’ll need, but I found I always needed just a tiny bit more.  I guess it’s more of a personal preference choice for amount of coverage, but just keep in mind that the foundation is thin, and coverage may be minimal.
