It's been awhile since I tried a foundation that I absolutely fell in love with, so I was really excited when I got the chance to try the new Bareskin Pure Brightening Serum Foundation. I'd been hearing such good things about it, but I was still cautiously optomistic because, well, one person's holy grail product is another person's throw it in the back of the drawer and forget all about it. So I'm very happy to report that it has more than lived up to the hype for me. It has a thin consistency, which I like, especially for summer, but the coverage is definitely buildable, although I find that I only need one layer to give me good coverage (and I like a medium amount of coverage). I tried it with the Bareskin Perfecting Face Brush, which is also kind of awesome. It has sort a... hollowed out part in the bristles where you put a few drops of the foundation and then buff it onto your face. I really, really like the way it applies the foundation. The coverage is smooth and even and blends in perfectly. Definitely a worthy purchase if you're buying the foundation (and even if you just need a foundation brush). The foundation itself is also a serum (hence the name) so if you're really lazy and hate more than one step in your skin care routine, this foundation is definitely for you! I love the fact that it feels so light on - I HATE heavy foundations and this is definitely not that. I also like that it's hypoallergenic, noncomedogenic, and dermatologist and ophthalmologist tested. My sensitive skin doesn't need any more reasons to freak out and the formula on this doesn't give them any. But mostly, I just really like the coverage it gives me and how natural it looks. For their first liquid foundation, they've really knocked this one out of the park. Well done, bareMinerals!
