Won’t calibrate 1/5
By Apple Home
iPhone 7+ iOS 11.2. Followed ALL instructions posted in reviews. Will not work. Wasted soooo much time on this🤬🤬🤬‼️
Easy to use 4/5
App was easy to use and the color matched perfectly. My only complaint is that the foundation is so thin that I had to use more to cover up some spots on my skin. So a whole bottle lasted me about a month and a half. If you don’t have anything to cover up, you should love it. For us older folks, it may be a little too pricey for me at the use rate.
I have a new iPhone X, and it took me 20 mins to do two scans. Both of which are not even close to being the correct skin tone for me. Both times and in different lighting it recommended the color “Claudia” for me. I’m Caucasian in color, for reference on how far off the color selection was for me.
It’s a hit or miss, wrong shade came 3/5
Didn’t have any issues with the app, that was a fairly easy process. The product arrived within a week. The shade was a little too light for me. Product doesn’t look very good on dry skin and makes your pores show more. I do love the product quality, it smells nice and it very blends well. Would I recommend it; there are great things about this product, but there are also negatives. If you want to go out and try something new then go for it, if you already have a foundation you love stick with that one.
Took my phone case off and tried to calibrate it multiple times with 5 pieces of plain white paper and it kept saying “Your phone could not be calibrated” downloaded it on my boyfriends Galaxy Note 8 and it worked.. would not let me check out as a guest or with Google sign in.. only my boyfriend’s Facebook login.. the bottle says his name on it now lolol hope it matches my skin tone! We will see. I’ll give it 3 stars for now since it doesn’t work on my brand new iPhone 8 Plus lol and I’ll update with more or less stars once i get the bottle..
I received my bottle last week. Although it says “Made-2-Fit For MATT” lol i wish it said my name, Victoria.
The color is probably slightly lighter than foundation i would typically buy for myself but i guess it a good color fit for me because i have got compliments on my makeup as well as how clear my skin looks!
Once i eventually run out I will download the app again on my iPhone 8 Plus and try it again and see if i maybe get a slightly different color! Thanks!
Will not calibrate 1/5
Gets to the 5th tap and keeps saying can not calibrate. Thats just on a stack of white paper. I tried this about 30 times same results.
App worked and was awesome. Took me 2 minutes to scan. Color matched perfectly! Will definitely be ordering again!
Worthless and a waste of time
I sat trying to calibrate the camera for almost an hour... Each time it got to 4 but then said it couldn’t be calibrated...
Amazing app!!!♥️♥️♥️ 5/5
Easy to use, great experience, feels like the future and the make up shade is spot on!!! Flawless looking skin with a young, fresh, glowing shine makes me feel 20 years younger...it’s like magic !!!! Thank you !!!
I’m Done With the App! 1/5
Forget it!!! I’ll keep using the foundation I’m using!! Ughhh after 20 minutes of tapping, dim light, bright light, case on, case off, can’t get past the 4th circle for calibration!!!
Not working 1/5
In the video it seems like the flash is always on and mine wasn’t coming on so maybe that’s the problem but it’s not scanning at all.
Waste of time 1/5
I couldn’t get camera calibrated. Spent forever trying and did everything that was recommended. They need to fix this....
Love the idea behind it though.
Won’t even stay on my screen and the flash light won’t even turn on or stay on. It does a weird strobe light effect for a second and have an iPhone 8plus.
Would not callibrate 2/5
I am giving this 2 stars because I love the idea of this app and the possibility of it working; however, even with my iPhone 8 and having watched the tutorial multiple times to make sure I was doing it right, it still would not callibrate. Very frustrating.
doesn’t work 1/5
i can’t even get through the first step because the 5th circle never works and i have tried for hours don’t get this
Not working 1/5
I cannot even complete a scan no matter what I do. I would use the 5 prices of paper even measure out 2 inches, had a timer on to do it on the exact second. I tried with a large stack of paper also. Nothing works to calibrate the app through the camera.
It’s not working 1/5
I have the 8 and the camera isn’t calibrating
Matches my skin tone perfectly!! 5/5
The app works well! The foundation matches my skin tone perfectly. I love it and I will definitely be using it again!!
By Jay M. Smith
Unlike everyone else I went to a bareMinerals store and had them do the app for me. My shade came out fantastic; with this foundation you can build for more coverage. You will forget you even have makeup on. It does not dry out nor does it break me out (that’s what a primer is for, to protect your skin). I am not usually a makeup kind of chick but, when I want to wear makeup this is the foundation I reach for. Will be ordering more in the future
Horrible match 1/5
I tried this product and though I am warmed toned and dark skinned the foundation I received was a ghastly grayish brown color. I don't know a living healthy human being who would be that gray. I would have assumed that this likely could have been a mistake of mine but a friend tried the app around the same time (she is warm toned and more of a deep tan since she is mixed race) and she also received what appeared to be the exact same unnatural grayish brown. While we both identify as black, in *no* lighting do we appear the same color. No where near. I don't know if they have a default they send to black people (surely not) or if the app is that poor (what I assume). Definitely wouldn't recommend.
Didn’t work with the iPhone 8 Plus 1/5
By Drew Michael Chadwick
It could not calibrate with my 8 Plus-the light won’t turn on for some reason. I tried it with my 6s and it worked.
Is anyone else having trouble calibrating their phone camera? 1/5
By ava granados
I was excited to get my foundation customized, but my camera is not calibrating. For now i will give one ⭐️ until it’s fixed. I’m very disappointed.
Total Scam 1/5
Are you kidding me!? $50- FIFTY d@mn dollars for this!? And idk if it would actually be the right shade for me!? I thought it was neat, but it’s a cheap (no by price cheap, but cheap as in bad) gimmick. Yeah I’m uninstalling this. Waste of time, waste of space on my phone, and a waste of money. Save yourself, don’t download this app.
So Easy! 5/5
I went to Ulta yesterday to get a new foundation,but there were too many people & I ended up leaving without my makeup! I was gonna just wing it & order online, but then I seen this tool! This is why BareMinerals is the best & has been my fave for 10 years now!
Scanning won’t work 1/5
Couldn’t get it even to do the first scan, only support help I could find was remove your case. Did that and still would never calibrate. For something that is only suppose to take 2 minutes just wast ten and now frustrated.
I was to get through most of the process but then had start all over again and it wouldn’t let me do it. Are they gonna use in stores? If so can’t I get done there it hard to with one person when u have small arms.
Didn’t work at all.. Bummer! 1/5
By Pretty Awesome So Far
Ok so, I wear bareMinerals it’s the ONLY make up that has NEVER broke me out, so I occasionally wear bc I can never find a perfect color but when I do wear it I wear the powder(Golden Dark) which is 10x lighter than what this app showed me which matches pretty well.. I was excited to see they had something new to offer. Oh how cool it can match my skin perfectly!! NOT, ok so I’m a brown skin woman and it gave me a DARK color (Claudia) I tried it 4 times and followed it to the T even 5 pieces of white paper.. same each time. So out of curiosity I did my daughter which is biracial and VERY light and it also gave her the same color which is impossible to be accurate. I did her 2x and even closed the app and reinstalled it.. NOTHING changed. What a disappointment, as I was excited now I’m bummed bc I hate going to the mall to purchase products I’m there too long, so now guess I’ll just stick with what I have. Bummer!
HORRIBLE! WORY PRODUCT EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 1/5
I tried over 20 times and it wouldn’t work. Then I looked it up in YouTube and the price was so high! Not worth it!
Color way off 2/5
I followed the directions in the app, but even with the sound on, I never heard the person telling me it was time to switch to the next area. I had to watch in the mirror to know when to switch. I received my makeup and it is many shades too dark for me. Customer service responded quickly with a chance to redo it for free, but the app shouldn’t be so far off on the first try.
App loaded fine but 3/5
I loaded the app and got thru the tapping procedure. The only problem i have found from the start is the payment options. I only pay via secure sites like pay pal. Why is that not an option? I do not randomly store any of that info on a website.
The App Won’t Let Me Scan 1/5
By Desiree' Janiece
I was really excited to try the app and see if it actually works, but unfortunately the app kept saying that it doesn’t support my iPhone and it wouldn’t let me scan which is kind of weird since I have the latest iPhone.
Couldn’t calibrate 1/5
Tried previous troubleshooting suggestions from other reviews and still couldn’t calibrate my iPhone 6s.
Scanning not supported for my phone 2/5
I have an iPhone 8 plus and I can not scan.
I have used this app before on an older phone.
“Scanning Not Supported” 1/5
Apparently iPhone 8 is not supported.... so I can’t even use it.
So frustrating 1/5
Couldn't even get past step 1! I followed the instructions perfectly and even switched rooms with different lighting to see if that was the issue. I uninstalled and then reinstalled the app to see if that would help but of course it didn't. I have the iPhone 7 and when calibrating it would either get stuck on 5 or it would jump up to 4 but then jump back down to 1. Spent 15 minutes trying to do this and never even got my match. Never again.
Mine keeps saying my iPhone doesn’t support the app
Can’t use on iPhone 8+ 1/5
The app is not compatible with the iPhone 8+ and does not support it.
Difficulty with scan, app crashes 2/5
The scan took several attempts to complete in full. Like other reviewers have stated, it would be nice to see the color I’m buying beforehand - even if it’s an exact match for an existing on-the-shelf color, at least tell me what undertone, etc so I know it’s on the right track before purchase.
Now that I’ve ordered, when I try to check the status in “accounts”, the app crashes. Wish the app were more user-friendly and bug-free. I’ll update when my product arrives!
I can’t get past the first step 1/5
By Lauren jauregui's bae
This is just so complicated I cannot get past the first step where I have to calibrate my camera. It so frustrating because I’m following all the directions, I have a stack of white paper, an iPhone 7, iOS 11, don light and it still won’t calibrate 🙄
Not iPhone 8/8 Plus Compatible 2/5
By Deborah Johnstone
I downloaded the app. Said it is not supported and to check back for a future update that supports this iPhone. Bummer.
Doesn’t work on an iPhone 8plus? 1/5
I hate this app 1/5
It is hard to do the taping the fur taping there is so much effort that dose not work so this app is not the best I would go to the store instead of this
Simple to use 5/5
No issues using the app like others Have stated. I followed the directions and the calibration and skin scan worked the first time. Wish the app provided more feedback on the color analysis though. Doesn’t even show a swatch of what your color will be. I ordered anyway since their return policy seems good. Will update when I receive it.
***update*** received the product! Love the formula. I’m undecided on the color match though. It’s just a touch lighter and pinker than I hoped. It matches pretty close though. Although considering the cost, it needs to be spot on in my opinion. Gonna try it out a few times before I decide whether or not to return.
**Second update!!** I did end up taking their offer for a complementary redo and I am in LOVE!!! The foundation is a bang on match for my skin tone! I am amazed and will never go back to off-the-shelf colors. I’ve always had a hard time getting a good match with my lighter than true medium skin and a strong yellow undertone. This app and product is amazing!
Doesn’t work with 7 plus 1/5
When I tried to even scan the pieces of paper is said that is did not support my device.
Awful App. 1/5
I followed the instructions, yet it still would not calibrate. If you’re going to release an app, make sure it works properly. This was a waste of time.
Not supported 3/5
This app doesn’t support IPhone 8 plus yet.
Worked fine on my iPhone. 5/5
I have an iPhone 6 and it worked great on my phone. Now I just hope the color really matches my complexion!
Couldn't calibrate 1/5
Couldn't calibrate after multiple tries. I even took of my case and it didn't help.
Not calibrating 1/5
I’ve tried the first step in scanning and I can’t get passed it. Keeps telling me that my camera cannot be calibrated. Yes, I’m following directions with a stack of paper in natural light and not direct light and tried an inch, two inches and three inches above every second. Nothing is working. This would be an amazing app if it worked. Anyone else having this issue?
I tried for a hour to get my IPhone 7 Plus camera to calibrate. 😩
