Bare Minerals BareSkin Complete Coverage Serum Concealer

Hello, Beautiful!

Not too long ago I was shopping online at Sephora and decided to try their new concealer, which is a serum concealer as well. I was less than impressed, however, once I tried it. Not enough product comes out on the wand, forcing you to re-dip way more than needed. I also found it was on the dry side of liquid products and the coverage wasn't mind blowing. I plan to return it on my next Sephora trip.

On my last in-store Sephora trip (which was a "by accident" trip... we know how those go), I saw they had the new Bare Minerals Bare Skin Complete Coverage Serum Concealer. I swatched it and instantly fell in love. It was the perfect silky smooth liquid-flow consistency. There are only six shades, and I chose Medium (got the last one at my Sephora location... every other shade was still fully stocked).

Check out all the product info, along with my full review, after the pics!

My Rating: 5 out of 5 Kisses!


A silky smooth, complete coverage, concealer and serum in one, BareSkin Complete Coverage Serum Concealer is designed to provide remarkable coverage with its ultra-light texture. It instantly reduces the appearance of dark circles, discoloration, and other imperfections for a beautifully even-toned complexion. Formulated with antioxidant Lilac Plant Stem Cells, this multitasking concealer features high-definition mineral optics to counteract shadows and give skin a brightened, lustrous finish. Hydrating humectants help nourish the undereye area, while the silky smooth texture glides effortlessly over fine lines, leaving skin looking fresh and flawless all day.


As I mentioned at the top of this post, I instantly fell in love with this concealer upon swatching it. It has such a divine texture and blends like a dream. You also need less than you think, as it spreads easily.

I don't think the coverage should be listed as "complete coverage", but the coverage factor is pretty good in itself. I find that almost any liquid-y concealer will give you just a bit more coverage if you allow it to sit for a little first, then blend it in. I usually let it sit for maybe 30 seconds to minute tops. You don't want it to dry down and then you can't blend it at all; find your perfect waiting time. I am fine with one layer, but if you really wanted to make it look absolutely flawless you could use a correcting concealer underneath to cancel out any blue or purple undertones.

I chose the shade Medium, which is still pretty light. It's only slightly brightening on my skintone, but I like that because sometimes you don't want a super bright under eye/highlighted face look. It's just the perfect amount to make me look awake and healthy. I'll use this under my eyes and I'll apply a little on the bridge on my nose and then blend upwards to brighten in between my brows and slightly onto the forehead.

It looks really nice on the skin. I do set it with a powder, but I normally do that to all my concealers. I do find it doesn't settle into my fine lines, which is a good thing. Good staying power too, but it's not a super long wearing, 24hr concealer.

Overall, this concealer is fantastic! I thought I loved the Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer a lot, but I honestly think I prefer the Bare Minerals BareSkin Concealer over that one! I really like this concealer and think it's worth giving a try!

  1. This concealer looks nice, and I like the wand. Right now I have far too many concealers, so I won't be picking this one up. It looks nice and dreamy!
