Good foundations: A long-time fan of bareMinerals foundations (in particular their iconic Original Foundation powder) we’re pleased to report the brand has just released a new liquid foundation in the UK.
New BAREPRO Performance Wear Liquid Foundation SPF20 is a quality foundation that offers excellent natural-looking coverage.
Billed as makeup so pure you can sleep in it (not that we’ll be doing that…), the new formula offers 24-hour wear. It’s good to know it’s also heat, humidity, water and sweat-resistant and when we tried it out it was indeed long-lasting and wonderful at blurring out imperfections.
It has a creamy consistency, is comfortable to wear and offers a matte finish. In true bareMinerals style it provides the all-important coverage but skin can actually still breathe through it.
A tricky task picking one out from a shade chart of 30 – without seeing and testing the product – but the shade we chose (Silk 14) was spot on. It blended into the jawline, melting away, leaving no tell-tale demarcations!
It launched last month in Debenhams stores, bareMinerals boutiques and online – but is now available nationwide in department stores across the UK.
The 30ml bottle is priced at £29. Launched alongside it, their Luxe Performance Brush, £24, in synthetic fibres, is gorgeous and just made for the softies of this world! bareMineral brushes aren’t the cheapest but they are incredibly long-lasting and superb quality. This one is super-soft, dense and designed to mimic the shape of fingertips for easier application around the nose and eyes.
