MATTE Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15 - null
Hooked for Life!
I absolutely LOVE this foundation! I've been using it for over a year now and I can never go back to drugstore mineral makeup. It lasts all day and looks very natural. I don't feel like I'm even wearing makeup! It's amazing!
I absolutely LOVE this product. I have been using this along with other products from here, for a long time now. Nothing gives me the coverage like this. My naturally oily skin is cured with the MATTE foundation. This lasts me a long time. And also keeps my skin looking nice and clear(no breakouts)! I always get compliments on my skin and make up from people saying how beautiful and natural it looks. :)
I LOVE IT!
I have normal to dry skin but later on in the day my face gets very oily. I guess it's due to all the moisturizers I use. Either way I have used the original foundation and my face would get very oily. I switched to this before giving up on BM and I am soooo glad I did! I can definitely see the difference and it helps absorb the oils from my face. I have been using this one for about 4 years now.
I would just suggest that if you do use the MATTE and you're switching from the original, to pick a shade lighter. For example for the original I'm a 'Fairly Light' but for the MATTE I'm 'Fair'.
I'M IN LOVE
After being disappointed twice by the BareSkin liquid foundation, I decided to give Bare Minerals one last chance with this Matte powder foundation. Let me tell you, it did NOT disappoint!! I use a kabuki brush I got at Costco and it gives me nice even coverage. It covers up my flaws and evens my skin tone without looking like I'm cake-facing. I just use moisturizer underneath (I'm bad about using primer) and it stays on all day. I just get a little shiny throughout the day, but I'll probably get the Mineral Veil compact for that ;) My skin just looks so smooth with this! It's everything I've ever wanted in makeup. Never going back to liquid!
I absolutely love this product! I tried it for the first time yesterday, and it has beautiful coverage! It only takes a small amount of it to cover the whole face. I highly recommend it!
Best thing ever!
I am 14 with a few blemishes and super oily skin and large pores on my nose and lovely undereye circles in the morning. Yikes! I started using proactiv which has been working great on my skin, and decided I didn't want to spend half and hour applying my face makeup. I found bareminerals, and after applying my green tea moisturizer, buffing a thin layer of this onto my entire face and spot concealing my blemishes and dark circles, I look refreshed and ready to go! A couple coats of my favorite mascara and I'm out the door. This product looks great even after basketball practice and softball games! Just need to be sure to Moisturize before use, I didn't at first and this product is chalky and blotchy since it has nothing but dry skin to blend into. Primer and setting spray helps too, but I save those for special occasions. Please do yourself a favor and buy this product now!
Best Foundation I've Had
I always have had a horrible time finding my shade of foundation. I change from summer to winter, and most foundations feel icky and seem thickly visible. Not this one! I've used the Fairly Light Foundation for 3 years now. It matches my skin regardless of tan or sans tan. It is light, I don't feel like I have a layer of goop over my skin-it's breathable! And the new Matte style is even better. I really like the idea of enhancing my natural skin, and this foundation does so flawlessly.
I got this on hope that it would reduce the look of my pore size, no way! my pores are more emphasized! I like the way I look in pictures way better with the matte than the original ( I look less greasy) but, not much of a difference in formula. The original is better i feel.....
golden Medium Matte is my baby
so i have the original and the matte. which i luv both, but since summer was here was using matte more.. i totally in luv with both foundation... i recently changed to Bare minerals, cause my prior brand was just to thick and sometimes it was way to much for my skin, i felt like it didn't breath...
with Bare minerals original and matte. i feel like there Air actually hits my skin, and my skin breathes. so light on the face but it has coverage. and u can build it which i luv.... now i can't stop shopping on this site..
im also a hairstylist and makeup artist so i know about makeup and also how so many brands feel.. and this is just so good for everyday look n feel...
I love this!
I'd used bare escentuals mascara and lip stain before, and I was in the market for a fresh light weight and natural looking foundation. I decided to go into a bare minerals store and give it a shot.. Not only did I have some of the best customer service (Thank you Rika at Crabtree Valley mall for being my best friend for a day while I was shopping!) Once she helped me find all the proper shades and products that work best for me, she showed me how to apply it... which is so easy by the way!! I slept in that makeup that night (even with my acne prone skin) and I haven't had a problem with my skin yet! This stuff is so natural that it doesn't affect my skin at all! and when I wear it, it looks like I'm naturally that beautiful :) People don't even believe that I wear makeup :) And just to let you guys know, I wear the original powder foundation matte in fair. I also really like the blush.. not sure the name of the color but it's kind of a plum-y color. I use the brush Rika recommended. The primer and finishing veil are favorites of mine too!
