Get It or Forget It?: bareMinerals barePro Foundation

To_Buy_or_Not_to_Buy

Hello and welcome back, Beauties!! I hope you’re having a great day so far. I’ve always been a fan of bareMinerals, but this is the first liquid foundation I’ve tried from them. If you’re interested in seeing how it worked for me, just keep on reading. 

It’s amazing to me how quickly our makeup tastes can change. For the longest time, I would never wear liquid foundation. I found that it would irritate my skin, or just look weird on me. Thanks to better products and finally learning how to apply it well, I’ve become a huge fan of it.

When I was only wearing powder foundations, bareMinerals was the brand I typically gravitated towards because of their extensive shade range and I never had any issues with my skin from it, like breakouts or anything. So, when I began hearing so many good things about their newest liquid foundation, I figured I’d give it a go.

The bareMinerals barePro Performance Wear Liquid Foundation, $34, comes in about 30 shades. When I was at Ulta trying to select a shade, I found three that could work for me, which is a rarity for me. I finally settled on the shade Cappuccino and it’s pretty much a perfect match for me. Let’s go over the claims real quick from the Ulta website:

bareMinerals barePro Performance Wear Liquid Foundation redefines what long-wear means: a good-for-skin, high-performance formula that blurs pores and imperfections while improving the appearance of skin texture over time*. With 24-hour wear in a range of natural matte finish shades, it works – and plays – as hard as you do. Just one pump delivers lightweight, oil-free, photo-friendly full-coverage. barePro Performance Wear Liquid Foundation is powered by specially-developed Mineral Lock Long-Wear Technology that blends mineral pigments with lipids naturally found in skin to lock in all-day full coverage. Natural Bamboo Stem Extract provides a smooth, soft focus finish, while Papaya Enzymes gently improve skin’s texture both immediately and over time. This self-setting foundation is transfer-resistant and color-true. Available from the fairest porcelain to the deepest cocoa for all of our natural beauties.

Benefits:

  • Dermatologist tested
  • Oil-free
  • Non-acnegenic
  • Non-comedogenic (won’t clog pores)
  • Makeup so pure you can sleep in it

This foundation has been clinically shown to improve skin over time, by addressing hydration, texture, appearance of pores and boosting skin renewal.

I have found that the barePro foundation definitely lasts for a long time without getting all funky on the skin as the claims state. I’ve worn it for 12 hours and even longer and it literally didn’t need any touching up. I also agree with the claim that it’s lightweight on the skin. You barely realize you have it on the skin, which is a big thing for me. I hate feeling like I have a heavy mask on my face.

 

Here are some pics from one of the days I spent testing the foundation. The image on the left is after about four hours of wear. I apply my makeup at 6am every morning, so this picture was taken around 10am. The image on the right was taken at 7pm once I got home from work. As you can see, nothing is broken down or crusty except for my hair lol.

So, what are my thoughts on the bareMinerals barePro Foundation?

Y’all, I LOVE this foundation! You can use a little bit to get a lighter coverage, or build it up to a super full coverage, depending on your skin texture. I’ve applied it with a beauty sponge, brush, and with my fingers and have gotten equally good looks every time. This is definitely my favorite foundation so far this year, and definitely will be picking up a backup. Guys, GET IT. Period.

Let me know in the comments below if you’ve tried this foundation and what you thought of it.

Until next time, Beauties!! xoxo
