My First Foundation! BareMinerals Made2Fit Custom Shade

That foundation has my name on it – literally

If you saw my recent post about testing foundation samples, you know that I couldn’t find a foundation that I loved and would want to purchase and wear regularly. It was a bit disappointing, but it wasn’t a huge deal for me. Then Influenster sent over the opportunity to create my own personalized BareMinerals foundation ($49).

I figured something that was literally made for me might be the best full-size addition to my collection. I also really love the BareMinerals bareSkin Serum Concealer which has great coverage but looks undetectable and blends in like a dream. I didn’t love the BarePro because it was too matte and a tiny bit heavy, but this claimed to be lighter coverage with a natural finish.

The Made2Fit formula is definitely dewy – I appreciate the hydration on my dry skin, but I did set my t-zone with powder because it was a bit too glowy for me in those areas. The coverage is light which I prefer, but I’ve read reviews that it’s buildable too. The shade was also the perfect match for me without emphasizing my yellow undertones. I was really impressed that it was so spot on. Even better, if it doesn’t match, you can exchange it for another shade for free.

So, am I a foundation convert? Not exactly. While I do like this more than any of the other foundations I’ve tried, I still think just a bit of concealer looks the same and it’s faster for me to apply. I’m really glad to add this to my collection for when I may need it though. I also love that it has my name on it – super cute – and a sanitary pump. If you have a hard time finding the perfect shade, I would definitely recommend this!
