Glammy Award Winner for Best Department/Specialty Stores from 2005-2014 (10 years and counting).

Fairly Light - For porcelain-to-light skin with neutral undertones
Clinically proven to promote clearer, healthier-looking skin. Our loose mineral foundation gives you all the flawless coverage you want with a naturally luminous finish and no-makeup look and feel that lasts up to eight hours. The creamy minerals diminish the appearance of imperfections without drying out skin.

Formulated without parabens, binders, fillers, or synthetic chemicals.
It's makeup so pure you can sleep in it.®

© Bare Escentuals Beauty, Inc.

For flawless coverage, follow our three simple steps...SWIRL, TAP, BUFF.

  • SWIRL a small amount of bareMinerals into the lid with the Flawless Application Brush (for lighter coverage) or the Full Coverage Kabuki Brush (for more coverage) until the bareMinerals are tucked into the bristles.
  • TAP off excess. bareMinerals should not be visible on the outside of the brush.
  • BUFF bareMinerals onto the skin in a swirling, circular motion, starting on the outside of your face near your cheekbones.  Then, buff around your face, working your way to the cheeks, forehead, and nose.  Buff until you're satisfied with the coverage.  Less is more when applying bareMinerals.

    This is the best makeup I have ever used in the world, hands down. I've tried everything and nothing compares. To address the prior user's reviews - yes, you have to be careful with it when you open it as powder does tend to spill out from time to time (but it cleans up with a wet rag or even just with your hand - no big deal). And yes, there are no instructions on the package. But how often are there instructions on makeup boxes? The prior user is clearly only concerned with instant gratification and not willing to make the very minimal investment required to be able to use this INCREDIBLE product. Please don't hesitant in giving it a try - I promise it will be well worth it. My skin has never in my life looked as good as it does using bareMinerals. After a few practice applications, you'll be happy that you did

    I have been using this foundation for a few years. I like it very much, and have come back to it after trying other mineral foundations. However, I may leave once and for all once I find a good foundation with a better container. This Click Lock Go is a disaster, and a ripoff to boot. It's hard to get foundation up to the top, so I wind up opening the bottom very soon - so much for portability. Also, the mechanism catches mineral powder, causing much more waste than the old container. And I don't have one to compare, but I think it's a higher price for less product! The mechanism makes it feel heavier. If ID came out with a better container like the old one, or at least a lower cost refill, I might not leave them. As it is, I am on the lookout to leave them asap. Pity, because the foundation itself is very good.

    Comments about bareMinerals Original Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15, Fairly Light (N10), .28 oz:

    This is a great product. Very long lasting and gentle on my skin. They've changed the packaging so that it doesn't make a powdery mess all over my bathroom counter.

    I was disappointed to see it is a slightly smaller quantity for the same price, but to be honest, I'll still buy it if they downsize it again next time I reorder. It's a great product and I'm hooked!

      I have used this product for several years and am still very pleased with the staying power and how it does not rub off on my clothes! It provides great coverage - whether you use it lightly or buff on a little heavier.

      Works awesome, even clears my skin up and doesn't even feel like you have makeup on. It really evens my skin out. Just use a good moisturizer if you live in a dry climate because it goes on moisturized skin a lot better than dry.

        Comments about bareMinerals Original Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15, Fairly Light (N10), .28 oz:

        I have always loved my Bare Minerals, and they haven't changed the product a bit. I find the new packaging a little tedious, though. You can now close off the powder, which is great for travel, but it makes daily use a little messy. Now you have to tap the powder into the cap, which is messy, and if you don't use every spec you have to get the excess powder back in the container, which is very messy. Honestly, I preferred the old package and a couple of strips of scotch tape.

          This makeup changed my life for the better.
          I've been using Bare Minerals sinse I was 14 and I will NEVER go back to any other foundation.
          It doesn't make you feel like you're hiding behind a mask, it sets you free and lets you appreciate the beauty of your OWN skin.
          All the ingredients are "real", and the titanium dioxide is a proven natural sun BLOCK.
          And if you're not sure on the price, I assure you, it is worth it. And actually, I truly believe I save money, because I only buy one regular size foundation every 4 or 5 MONTHS.
          It's a miracle foundation, and it really is THAT wonderful!
          Give it a try... but I warn you, once you try it, you'll never go back to the "other" stuff again. :)

              I've been using Bare Escentuals make up for 2 years and I used to use all the Dept store make ups (and I tried them all). I have adult onset acne and this make up helps decrease breakouts. It has natural ingredients, not all the junk that is in most other make ups. It is lightweight & looks natural. You have to get the starter kit first, that has all the brushes that you need & the DVD on how to apply. Their new containers have fixed the powder "spill" problem.

              This powder spills everywhere just opening the lid the first time. Everytime I open the lid it spills. To use it you have to tip it up to get some powder over the holed insert. Then when you open it powder goes everywhere. First thing that annoyed me was that I had to go and buy a kabuki brush to use it.Nothing when buying said that you needed special brushes that were not included. Second there are no instructions on how to use this on the container. You have to go to this page online to get the directions. It is not easy getting the powder into the brush as they say. Then swirling the brush over the face gives a heavy gluggy coating. I have dry skin and some fine lines and it sinks into the fine lines accentuating them. The only positive thing I can say is that it is pale and a good colour match for pale skin.
