Foundation Friday – @bareMinerals BarePRO Performance Wear Liquid Foundation SPF 20

August 23, 2019

I’m changing the song lyrics from “Diamonds are a girl’s best friend” to “Foundation samples are a girl’s best friend” because, when they are sufficiently sized (foundation samples, not diamonds), they really are my favorite thing! Today, I’m testing out the @bareminerals BarePRO Performance Wear Liquid Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 20 ($34 for 1 ounce at @sephora –

What it claims:

🔘 A skin-improving, 24-hour, breathable, matte liquid foundation with Mineral Lock technology to blend pigments with lipids and lock-in full coverage

🔘 This high-performance formula blurs pores and imperfections while evening the look of skin’s texture

🔘 This self-setting foundation is lightweight, oil-free, transfer-resistant, and photo-friendly

🔘 It provides skin-improving long-wear without unnatural cakiness

My experience:

👍🏻 The shade is a pretty good match, even though I had a limited selection of sample shades to choose from.

👍🏻 This comes in 35 shades and the range is pretty good.

👍🏻 I find the shade descriptions easy to understand, which I definitely can’t say for all foundations.

👍🏻 The first day I wore this (photo 1), I did so for over twelve hours and I never had to blot – which is absolutely incredible for me. Today is the 2nd time I’ve worn it and it’s performing just as well as it did the first time around.

👍🏻 It blended out easily both times and played well with the products I layered on top.

👍🏻 The coverage is high medium.

My verdict?

My goodness, this is such a fantastic foundation on my skin! It’s matte, but doesn’t suck the life out of me, long-lasting and fairly affordable (especially when purchased during an @ultabeauty or @sephora sale, which is when I intend on doing so)! Looks like I’ll have to do a foundation declutter soon in order to make room for this beauty!
