Bare Minerals Original Foundation
I have been using Bare Minerals Original Foundation in Light for a year now. It provides natural luminous finish with light coverage. I have serious acne scars and discolorations. The foundation evened my skin color out without doing much for the scar coverage. A small amount of product goes a long way, and the coverage is easily buildable without caking up. If you are looking for serious coverage for problem skin, it is probably not for you.
It is formulated without parabens, sulfates, phthalates, preservatives, talc, oil and fragrances. I have super sensitive skin that would break out withe the smallest things. This foundation does not irritate my skin. The application takes less than a minute in the morning, which is great for my busy schedule. It stays put for 6-7 hours with good setting powder on my combination skin. During operating room days, I did not notice any transference to the masks, which I love. I am sure I would try other mineral foundations here and there, but for now Bare Minerals Original Foundations is my go to foundation.
Bare Minerals Mineral Veil
I have tried a few different drugstore setting powders with the foundation. Everything I have tried so far worked well. I wanted to see if Bare Minerals Mineral Veil would prolong the staying power and enhance the finish of the foundation. I have to say that Bare Minerals Mineral Veil has a really nice natural yet luminous finish that softens any imperfections. I don't think it prolongs the staying power of the Bare Minerals Foundation, but I really like the finish. In addition, it is formulated without any irritants and fragrance, which is important to me. I would recommend this combination for anyone who is looking for light coverage with fuss free application for reasonable price.
