bareMinerals Original SPF 15 Foundation Review

I was given this as a Christmas present last year in a gift set, and only just got around to picking it up and using it! I was originally discarded it because I've always thought mineral foundation was a bit gymicy and in actual fact didn't do too much. The other week I was looking through my make up collection for a face setting powder as I wanted to experiment a bit beyond the world of MAC MSF Natural! I thought I'd give this a go and fell head over heels in love! It makes the skin feel so soft, but my favorite aspect of this product is that if used as a setting powder it doesn't eradicate the gorgeous finish your foundation gives you. So your skin remains healthy and glowy but NOT shiny or overly "dewy". I like to find the perfect in between for dewy and matte skin. I don't like being totally matte but I don't like looking like an oil slick! I think the "dewy" thing can be taken too far and generally just turn into oily looking skin rater than radiant. 

Another thing I adore about this product is that it's fantastic for building up extra cover in an area. I hate over concealer but with this powder I just buff a little extra over the problematic area and BOOM instant high coverage!

I've really never found something that makes my skin look so flawless and I will definitely not be discarding mineral products in the future. I've also noticed how much my skin has improved since using this which is something to look into! Over all I honestly give this product a 5/5, I am crazily impressed and will definitely be re purchasing!

The foundation comes in at a quite pricey £23.00, BUT can be bought discounted here for £19.55!

  1. I was really skeptical about mineral foundation before I discovered Bare Minerals, I was scared my face would look dusty and horrible lol. I swear by it now though! I agree that the coverage is great, yet it doesn't feel heavy like a lot of my liquid foundation does :) xo
