So I’ve been very delayed bringing you my review of Bare Minerals Bare Skin Serum Foundation. I pre-ordered the Bare Skin Serum Foundation as soon as it launched on QVC and I got it soon after my order. I must have been lucky because mine arrived soon after I ordered but I’m hearing people just got their order recently?! I’m not sure why I was lucky but I was so I had nearly a month to use it and play around with it etc…!
Basically the Bare Minerals Bare Skin Serum Foundation is both a mineral foundation and a skincare serum in one. It provides coverage as it treats your skin.
Interesting concept right? When I first heard about it I was thinking of perhaps a Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua Ultra Light Skin Perfecting Makeup style formula but this is actually completely unique to some of the new fad liquid foundations. Most formulas I’ve tried in this area are typically water based but also have a gel-like consistency. THIS is a fluid foundation but it has more of a serum, watery texture versus a gel.
Let’s take a look.
Hard Candy CC Tinted Moisturizer Stick ($7) will likely remind you of Tarte Colored Clay CC Primer as they both contain a purple and green center core that addresses redness and dull skin. The main difference here is Hard Candy’s CC Stick is a good deal more moisturizing where as Tarte went matte. and let’s not forget the way cheaper price tag!

If you’re a lover of liquid foundations you’ll likely love Shiseido InteGrate Mineral Water Foundation Liquid. Apparently this is made with 100% pure mineral water which gives it a lovely dewy finish and hydrating feel on skin.
If you love products like Estee Lauder Invisible Fluid Makeup, Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua Ultra Light Skin Perfecting Makeup, or Shiseido Perfect Refining Foundation it’s pretty much a no brainier you’ll adore Shiseido InteGrate Mineral Water Foundation Liquid.

Yay just in time for Spring Pixi has created a new H20 Skintint Tinted Face Gel! Loving this stuff. Pixi H20 Skintint ($24) water based face gel that’s available in three shades that offers lightweight coverage for the warmer months ahead.

My newest fav foundation award goes to Elizabeth Arden Flawless Finish Mousse Makeup ($34)! Having been burnt in the past by products like Maybelline Dream Nude Airfoam I wasn’t sure I was ready to take on another mousse makeup. Dream Nude Airfoam totally dulled my skin and was just terribly sheer and messy to apply.
Now…I won’t say the Elizabeth Arden Flawless Finish Mousse Makeup isn’t messy because it is slightly however, the coverage it provides and its ability to brighten up my duller skin make it a win!
