bareMinerals barePRO Performance Wear Powder Foundation #FreetheFace

 bareMinerals barePRO Performance Wear Powder FoundationAs more of a full-coverage gal, I did not expect to like the bareMinerals barePRO Performance Wear Powder Foundation ($30). I don’t want to free my face…I want to cover up all the sins of my misspent youth! However, this powder foundation promised a lot:                                                                                                         samplesbareMinerals barePRO Performance Wear Powder Foundation

  • Glam coverage
  • 12-hour long-wear
  • Breathable
  • True-to-you shades
  • Formulated with 90% vitamins & minerals

So I gave it a shot. Boy was I surprised…I love this gorgeous light weight foundation!

The powder has a silky smooth texture with a wonderful application. It feels extremely light on my skin and it’s buildable so it covers my major sins without looking fake or caked on. I typically have a problem with foundation wearing off quickly, yet this lasts pretty long for me. Not exactly the promised 12 hours, but I still get a good 6 hours of wear.

There are 30 different shades, which is an incredible range. I tried three shades, all of which work well with my NW23 skin. In fact, I couldn’t even swatch these because the foundation blends so well it just doesn’t show up on camera.

The angled shape is great for coverage around the nose and chin, and it picks up the perfect amount of product. And it’s just so easy to apply – there is no need to buff or blend, it goes on seamlessly and looks fantastic. It makes my skin look like I have no pores…that’s a Christmas miracle right there.

bareMinerals #FreetheFaceI am very happy with the barePRO Performance Wear Powder Foundation and am so happy to have found it. Be sure you check it out – I’m betting you will be as happy with it as I am and you will want to #FreetheFace.  – Lisa

  1. I have been meaning to try this foundation!! Thanks for the reminder and review. 🙂

  2. Great review!

  3. I need that brush!!!!!! This foundation formula sounds really good, but I do tend to prefer liquid and cream foundations with more sheer coverage.

  4. I like powder foundations to use from time to time. And bareMinerals certainly are the powder queens.

  5. I love BareMinerals, this is a great review!

  6. I will have to try this new foundation. Currently the BareMinerals Complexion Rescue is what I reach for every day, love the brand.

  7. I really never wear foundation—I know, I’m unique haha. But this item looks good!

  8. I think this works best on oily and combo skin.

  9. I started using Bare Minerals a few years back & fell in love. I use their Mineral veil and their concealer brush with powder when I don’t feel like going all out on my make up. It’s nice because it really does feel like I’m not wearing any. 🙂

  10. That brush looks cool! Love Bare Minerals!

  11. Wow Sounds really nice. I would like to try more powder foundations. They always catch my eye when I see one but don’t want that powdery look on my mature skin. I have Pore issues and have always wondered about the IT cosm one. But this one sounds like might be something even I could wear. That brush looks really nice. Thanks so much for sharing.

  12. This is my favorite powder. They just need a paler neutral than Dawn.

  13. I love mineral powder, so I may have to look into this!!

  14. I bought this in late November and I’m obsessed with it. I cannot believe how well it covers.

  15. My Nail Polish Obsession says:

    That brush looks awesome.

  16. I like seeing the new Bare Minerals products.This set looks lovely and the brush is unique.

  17. I want to try this! I used to love BareMinerals — their light shades always matched me so well, but the loose powder stuff was so messy. I would love to try it in pressed form!

  18. Haha I don’t want to free my face either! But I usually get along well with pressed powder foundations, and love BareMinerals powders.

  19. I’ve heard such great things about this foundation! 🙂

  20. I need to try more from BareMinerals — I don’t know why, but it is always the brand I skip over when I am browsing through Ulta. :-/
