bareMinerals loves to reinvent their foundations and they show no signs of stopping! Their latest innovation combines "glam coverage", vitamins and skin-loving nutrients with a matte finish in a pressed compact that applies in seconds. bareMinerals BAREPRO Performance Wear Powder Foundation is here! Let's check it out!
But will it look chalky? Do you have to buff until your arms get tired? Will it settle in fine lines? Will it make you look older? Does it cover? Is it buildable? Will it transfer? Should you even wear a powder foundation if you are over 25? I was wondering the same questions this weekend, too.
I grabbed the signature brush and some Dawn 02, one of 30 shades across five skin tones, and decided to find out. According to the press, it contains 90% vitamins and minerals, which makes sense coming from a mineral makeup company, right? It feels smooth, but barely there. This isn't one of those powders that feels finely milled on your fingers. You almost can't feel anything.
The BAREPRO brush, the first bareMinerals retractable foundation brush, has a core that grabs the right amount of product while the outside bristles help blend the coverage across the skin. I'm not convinced you need this brush to apply the product, but the sharply angled edge definitely helps place the foundation perfectly around your nose and eyes.
I wanted to see how buildable the coverage was, so I documented how buildable the coverage actually can be. I ended up with five layers of foundation on my skin and while it gives full glam coverage, it doesn't look heavy or chalky at all. For a powder foundation, I think I'm in love.
I'm getting 12 hours or more of wear time, with no fading, creasing or settling. This will transfer a tiny bit to your cell phone screen, but honestly, what doesn't? Even though I literally caked this on for my final look, applying five layers of foundation, it doesn't look or feel cakey. Personally, piling on this much makeup isn't for me, but the look is amazing. I'm wearing the Gen Nude Matte Liquid Lipstick in Swag in the last pic. It's my go-to shade for everything.
I'm not a powder foundation woman at this time in my life, but the ease and wear of this foundation is making me change my tune. I smiled as big as I could in the above photo to show you how it handles wrinkles. This powder moves with the skin, it doesn't settle. Try it for yourself anywhere bareMinerals is sold for $30.00. The brush is also sold for $30.00, although you don't HAVE to have it the way you did with the bareSkin foundation.
With thirty shades to choose from, one fits each of us. If you want a break from the heavy feeling of liquid foundations, this is a refreshing change!
