I Was So Excited When I First Heard About This Foundation!

Hello beauties! Today's review is of a foundation I've had for months.... And just procrastinated the hell out of this post lol Honestly, foundation reviews are my least favorite to do. They are such a personable product in that everyone has difference preferences, different skin types, many different reasons for why they love or hate a foundation.. Many areas for this post to offend some people. I'll start by saying I mean no offense to anyone who loves this product, I'm glad it worked for you but unfortunately, this was a total fail for me!
This is BareMinerals' first liquid foundation. I was so excited when I first began hearing rumors of this and was so grateful when my friend Sarah sent me this (thank you again, beautiful! xoxo) and I have tested this out throughout the months, with different brushes and applicators to see how well it applies and lasts for each.
I can't find the photos of the brush on its own but this is sold separately and recommended when applying this foundation. It's definitely the first of its kind, if you can tell from the photos above.. It's a flat top but the center inside is cut right out, so there is what looks like a hole in the center of the brush. It's a shallow area that you are meant to put drops of the foundation in, and then buff it into the skin. The brush is nice, extremely soft and I found no issues with it. I may try it with other foundations and see how well it does with those.
This is a very liquidy foundation so as it says on the back, you have to shake it really well. I've noticed a huge difference in application when you don't shake it as well, it almost thickens the foundation up a bit when you shake it really well.
When applying in the brush, it's recommended to use a certain amount of drops depending on how much coverage you want.
Excuse the redness, I was in Ulta before these and of course ended up covered in swatches :) But this worked out nicely because you can see the coverage this way!
The coverage is buildable so that is nice..... But.. The next complaint, the texture.. The feeling.. This feels greasy to me, and it NEVER fully sinks into the skin. No matter how little I use, no matter what I use to apply *even a Beauty Blender, which I thought for sure would save this! It's just one of those that sits on top of your skin and never warms up and blends in. There is literally just a layer of moveable foundation sitting on your face.
Again guys, I apologize if you love this foundation but it was an absolute fail for me. I have tried using many different brushes, my fingers, a beauty blender... Pretty much everything I could and it never worked the way I'd have wanted it to. I really hate posting bad reviews, especially when it's a makeup line I've loved for a long time but I wouldn't ever lie about my opinion on a product
